The most mind-blowing lovers are the ones who have perfected the art of making love to themselves. There’s nothing sexier or more empowering than taking your pleasure into your own hands, and what better way to do that than with your very own homemade dildo.

The humble dildo is a staple of any pleasure chest but finding the right toy can be more frustration than fun. I recently went looking for a new dildo to spice up my alone time and was overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude and expense of toys out there. I found myself wading through all manner of penetrative playthings, in every shape and size you could imagine. Sadly though, the phallus of my dreams was nowhere to be found.

So I decided to do it the old-fashioned way and create a homemade dildo.

What You Will Need to Follow This Tutorial

  • Polymer clay in different colors
  • A sheet of baking paper
  • A metal coat hanger
  • Wire cutters
  • A metal file
  • An oven
  • A free afternoon

#1 Design Your Dream Homemade Dildo

Aside from using it, this is the best part of the whole process! You get to create your perfect dildo, based on your very own secret desires. That’s a rare opportunity, so spend some time finding out what delicious treats your body is aching for.

Think about the shape, size and colors that most tickle your fancy.

Do you prefer a dildo to be realistic or abstract? Girthy or slim? Vibrant rainbow colors or simple, elegant black? What type of female orgasm do you enjoy the most? Clitoral? G-Spot? Take some inspiration from existing designs and customize them to suit your needs. Boutique sex toy creator BS Atelier is an excellent place to start. Don’t forget you can always make more dildos once you’ve got the hang of it!

#2 Create The Core Of Your Pleasure Wand

Let the crafting begin! Start by cutting a piece of coat hanger a few centimeters shorter than the final length of your dildo. The wire will act as a frame for the polymer clay, giving it more strength. Be sure to round off the ends of the wire with the metal file to avoid any nasty sharp edges.

#3 Build Up The Shaft

This is where things get juicy. It’s time to whip out the polymer clay! Any non-toxic brand will work so feel free to simply peruse your local craft store with a barely suppressed grin. The best I’ve found is Sculpey. They have a huge range of colors, including Caucasian skin tones and glow-in-the-dark clays. The possibilities are endless!

For a multicolored dildo, pick out one main color and one or two complementary colors. Begin by rolling the main-colored clay into three sausage shapes on your baking paper. Each should be about the length of your desired dildo but only 5mm thick.

Lay the three sausages in parallel so they’re touching along their lengths. Then place the coat hanger wire on top of the middle sausage and roll the clay around it.

Think of it as a sushi roll – the clay is the seaweed and the wire is the filling.

Keep rolling the whole thing against the baking paper with your palms so that the sausages meld together, encasing the wire.

#4 Get It Thick And Hard

Here, you’ll be bulking up the thickness of the shaft in layers. Continue rolling small sausages of your main color, laying them in parallel and rolling them gently but thoroughly onto the core of the dildo.

As the girth of the dildo increases, you’ll need to roll more small sausages at a time to reach around the whole thing. Round the ends as you go, running your hands over the whole shaft to make sure it’s smooth. Is it just me or is it getting hot in here?

If you want a smaller diameter, you’ll only need a few layers to achieve the perfect size.

If you prefer the feeling of being full and stretched, go ahead and bulk it up a bit. Whichever size you choose, in this step you’ll be making your dildo one layer thinner than you want the final diameter to be.

#5 Throw In Some Color

Now’s the time to get those creative juices flowing, so to speak. On the final layer you’ll add your complimentary colors, creating the overall look of your new plaything. Along with the main color, create enough sausages to reach around the whole dildo. Lay them together in alternating patterns, then roll them onto the core, the same way you did before.

Make sure to roll the whole thing thoroughly so there are no gaps between the layers.

The final step is to create a colored pattern that swirls around the whole shaft. To do this, gently twist the whole dildo. When you’re happy with the look of your toy, roll the whole thing to create a smooth, finished surface. Round the ends one last time and voila! You have yourself a simple and sexy homemade dildo!

#6 Know Your Body And Desires

The greatest thing about crafting your homemade dildo, is that you can make it perfect for your pussy. Here you can add extra features, to suit the kind of stimulation you’re looking for.

What you’ve made so far is a smooth dildo which is excellent for fast thrusting.

Perfect for the times when you just want it hard and rough. There are ribbed variations that give extra sensation inside, or for pleasuring your clit just the way you like it.

#7 Ribbed For Her Pleasure

Creating notches or ribbed sections in your dildo is a great way to spice up a simple shaft. This feature is a favorite of mine.

To create a large notch in your dildo, gently pinch around its diameter about 3 cm in from one end. By crafting a small valley around the girth of the shaft, you’re creating a point of stimulation for your vaginal muscles to tighten around.

The difference in girth can create an intense sensation.

Radiating through the depths of you while you stimulate your most tantalizing pleasure zones.

If you prefer the subtler but more consistent stimulus of vibration, a series of shallow ridges along the shaft is perfect. These are also wonderful for clitoral stimulation, offering a tantalizing massage of alternating sensations. Pinch notches a centimeter or so apart, the same way as for the larger notch, but not as deep.

#8 Hit The Spot

If you love the feeling of having your G-Spot massaged (or pounded), or are just curious to discover this part of your body, a curved dildo could be just the thing to make your next self-love session a memorable one.

Gently bend the whole dildo to add a shallow curve.

Curved dildos also follow the natural shape of the vagina so even if you’re not looking to trigger a G-spot orgasm, a slight curve might be more comfortable. In any case, make sure not to bend too far – the wire won’t bend with the clay.

#9 Customise Your Feeling Of Fullness

The moment of penetration can be a mind-blowing experience and that feeling can be intensified by changes in girth. Even with thinner dildos, a slight change in diameter can make for a tantalizing play session.

To create a thicker middle, add shorter sausages in the center as you build up the core. Make sure the last layer is always made up of clay sausages the length of the entire dildo.

This ensures a smooth, sleek finish, free from any cracks or gaps.

Another option is to taper the whole dildo by making all your sausages after the first layer thicker at one end. Again, the last layer should always be made up of equally-sized clay sausages.

#10 Baking Time!

After all of your hard work, your creation is finally ready to be cured! Bake your new dildo according to the instructions that came with the clay. Why not use this time to fantasize? All that rubbing of phallic objects is enough to get anyone’s imagination going.

Once it’s baked, don’t be too eager to rush into things!

Remember to let it cool completely before using it.

#11 The Moment Of Truth

Take a moment to appreciate the gift you’ve given yourself. This toy is made to fit your body, your desires and your sexuality – that’s something worth celebrating.

Make this self-love session a special one, knowing you’ve created something devoted entirely to you.

Take the time to explore all the sensations your new toy gives you.

Just be sure to emerge from the bedroom eventually… And lastly, be sure to cover your new homemade dildo in a condom before you fall into bliss.

Play It Safe

Because polymer clay is a craft product, it’s not usually intended for such risqué purposes, so there are some safety considerations. Most polymer clays are porous, so they must be used with a condom to ensure bacteria doesn’t set up shop. The last thing you want is your brand new toy becoming a health hazard.

The upside of that is that it can be shared, provided everyone uses their own condom. Sharing is caring, right?

Keep in mind that this dildo isn’t made for anal play.

Anything designed to go through the back door should have a broad base, and polymer clay may not be strong enough to create a sturdy base. This dildo is best saved for the delicious world of pussy play.

If you’ve ever tried to buy a dildo, especially online, you know how tedious it can be to sift through page after page of unappealing phalluses. These days, I’m so much more interested in something made specifically for me. My homemade dildo is guaranteed to be made for my pussy, giving me the kind of pleasure most people only dream about!

Taking such a hands-on role in your own sexuality is an incredibly empowering experience and I’m so excited for you to discover the delight of self-pleasure with your own homemade dildo!

Have fun with this process, and know that it’s a gift to yourself just to attempt it.

Of course, if you don’t find the time to craft your own dildo, there’s always room for a quickie with a cucumber and a condom. Whatever gets you going!
