These 5 Household Items Work As Sex Toys — And You May Already Own Them

You're surrounded by sex toys at home, and you don't even know it. As they say, with a little imagination, anything can be a dildo. And rather than grab the handcuffs hidden away in a bottom drawer, why not simply have your partner whip off their belt? While we're all for building a sex toy collection, by using what's in front of you, you're less likely to interrupt the mood by stepping away to grab equipment. While many find sex toys exciting, others would rather put a pair of panties in their lover's mouth than a ball gag — and that's hot, too.

Using household items as sex toys also allows you to save money. Waterproof vibrators can create clitoral orgasms that feel like they last for days, but so can using the warm stream of water from the bathtub you already own. Plus, when the household items are location-specific — like your washing machine — they can spice up your sex life by encouraging you to make love in new places. From the aforementioned washing machines to the classic electric toothbrush, read on for a handful of household items that double as sex toys.

While we're arguably more in control of and confident about our sexuality than ever, there's still so much we don't know about female arousal. So this month, we're exploring everything you want and need to know about how women get turned on now. Check out more

Raise your hand if one of the first things you masturbated with was a hair brush handle (raises hand). The ribbed handle on this gel grip adds extra pleasure. Just make sure to wash with antibiotic soap and water after each use.

Bondage ropes can be hot, but having your partner simply pull off the belt they wore to work in the heat of the moment and use it to restrain you can be even hotter.

Battery run out on your fancy grown-up vibrator? Have your partner hold the handle of their electric toothbrush against your clit (just make sure to wash after use!).

For light BDSM play, rather than buy a ball gag, have your partner remove your panties, ball them up, and then shove them in your mouth. (Germaphobes are welcome to grab a clean pair from the underwear drawer.)

No, we haven't figured out how to use a toilet as a sex toy (yet), but this bidet attachment may surprise you with its versatility. Tushy, which was created by Miki Agrawal of period-proof underwear Thinx, features temperature control — which means you can use warm water to stimulate yourself from behind. Or straddle the john to spray your clit. The fresh and clean feeling you'll have afterwards is just a bonus.
