If purchasing a bonafide Fleshlight isn’t in the cards, there are plenty of DIY options. One of these is to make a homemade vagina that can be used to masturbate with.
To make this soft DIY pocket pussy, start with a clean cucumber. Cut it vertically and wrap the middle with a ribbed or textured hand towel (as seen in this video). Add lube inside, and stroke away!
1. Aloe Vera and Turmeric
Whether you’re looking to beautify, cleanse or detox your vagina, there are a lot of recipes and mixtures on the internet that promise to do just that. These remedies often include things like crouching over hot water or pouring steam in the hopes that they’ll flush out any bacteria. Unfortunately, most of these home remedies don’t have any actual scientific backing to back them up. In fact, they could end up doing more harm than good.
For example, using scalding hot water to clean your vulva can actually damage the skin in and around your anus and vulva. In addition, if you’re not careful, using these hot water treatments could introduce harmful bacteria into your vagina.
Fortunately, there are more effective and safer homemade recipes to try when it comes to treating your vagina. Using ingredients like aloe vera and turmeric can help lighten dark areas in your vagina, as well as soothe the area. Besides that, using yoghurt as a vaginal treatment can also help keep your skin in top condition.
Just make sure you only use 100% pure aloe vera gel on your vulva or anus — store-bought products may contain added ingredients that are harmful to the delicate genital area. And never put anything in your vagina that’s not supposed to be there, like boiled gooseberries or ground up wasp nest powder, as these could cause damage. Also, avoid lubes that are fragranced or warming, as these can also trigger yeast infections and thrush.
2. Olive Oil
Having run out of your favorite lube or wanting to go natural can lead you scouring the kitchen cupboards for alternatives. Olive oil is one of the many household items some people turn to as a vaginal lubricant. However, the medical community warns that using olive oil for penetration could disrupt the delicate bacterial balance of your sensitive vaginal microbiome and increase your risk of infections.
Instead, try a natural oil that won’t disrupt your lubrication like sweet almond or coconut oils, or an herbal lubricant such as primrose oil. Alternatively, try a simple jelly mix that can be heated to give you a sensation like no other. Thrusting into a warm jelly mix is an inexpensive and unusual way to simulate your natural vagina, offering friction and suction that few other home-made DIY options can match.
Also avoid cooking oils such as vegetable or canola oil, as they may contain chemicals that can cause irritation or even a yeast infection. Avoid baby oil as well, as it may interfere with the proper pH balance of your sensitive vulva, and it can break down latex condoms. In the meantime, you can still use a water-based lubricant for your foreplay with your pocket pussy to keep things slick and fun. If you don’t have any other options, a sock or a latex glove that is big enough to fit your penis can be used to create a homemade cactus pad, full of knobs and ridges that will titillate your partner no end.
3. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is a great natural product that has been used for years for hygiene purposes and also for vaginal tightening. It contains many antioxidants and vitamin C, which help with cell renewal and can reduce signs of aging. It is also a natural laxative and increases bile production, which can help regulate your systolic blood pressure. However, it is important to note that lemon juice in high concentration can cause abrasions and increase your risk of infection.
Many TikTok content creators mix a variety of juices, fruits, and other liquids together to create a drink that they then insert into their vaginas in order to clean them or balance their pH levels. This is not only a dangerous practice but it also causes unnecessary irritation to the delicate vaginal walls. In addition, your vulva and penis are self-cleaning organs that produce a lubricating fluid that flushes away any bacteria or dirt.
You should also avoid using hot water in the vulva area as it can scald the skin and introduce harmful bacteria. Instead, try a mild solution of lemon juice and water to rinse your vulva. A sponge soaked in lemon juice or a thin slice of lemon inserted into the vagina before sex can also help prevent STIs and HIV infections by inactivating sperm and killing microbes.
4. Egg White
It may be true that egg white can help smooth the skin, but there’s no evidence that rubbing it on the vagina can improve fertility. The only way to know if you’re about to ovulate is to watch for the appearance of egg-white cervical mucus (EWCM).
The EWCM is believed to trigger ovulation, and it’s also thought to be a lubricant that makes it easier for sperm to reach an egg. But, despite the fact that egg-white cervical mucus has been used in laboratory studies as a medium for testing sperm, it’s not a proven method of aiding conception.
Putting anything in your vulva is not only dangerous, but it can also be harmful to your health. Douching, for example, can cause erosion of the protective vaginal wall, which can lead to infections. And using various homemade recipes inserted in the vulva could tip the pH balance in ways that could be harmful to your fertility.
Putting jade eggs in the vulva is just one of many practices that Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle website, Goop, has promoted that aren’t scientifically proven to work. These crystal-shaped rocks carved and polished into the shape of an egg are reportedly meant to unlock feminine energy, help with sexual dysfunction and balance the menstrual cycle. But yoni eggs aren’t proven to have any of these benefits, and some experts advise against them.
