What I’m getting at is just because you can use random, everyday items to get off, doesn’t mean you should.
Here are 10 items people use to masturbate (but probably shouldn’t).
File this under: The More You Know. (And thank me later.)
You know that saying that anything’s a dildo if you’re brave enough? Well, no. Clinical sexologist and certified sex coach Sunny Rodgers has heard many people say that they’ve usee popsicles as masturbation devices.
It might seem cute and harmless, but it isn’t.
“While sugar should never ever go near a vagina because it can cause infections, there is also a possibility of getting an ice burn by placing a frozen popsicle on sensitive skin,” says Rodgers.
“An ice burn happens when the water in the cells in skin freeze. And this injury is quite possible if using popsicles for penetration masturbation.”
Chemical and Fragrance-Loaded Lotions.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Jennifer T. Haley often sees male patients come in with an irritant contact dermatitis (similar to if you immersed your hand in bleach) from using chemical-loaded, fragrance-loaded lotions to masturbate.
Instead, Haley recommends using coconut or sunflower oil with no fragrance. Because a rash on your junk can be very uncomfortable – not to mention embarrassing.
A Wooden Hairbrush.
Anything made of wood (except high-quality wooden sex toys, which are specially coated) has several potentially unpleasant outcomes. It could splinter. “No matter how smooth the wood seems, splintering is not uncommon.
Especially with exaggerated manual friction,” says Laurel House, a dating coach and the resident sex expert for My First Blush.
