Graciano Masauso talks about 5 things girls should NEVER use as a sex toy to masturbate

Whether it is in the comfort of your bed or a hot steamy shower, a lot of people enjoy a little solo session every once in a while. While there is no right or wrong way when it comes to pleasing yourself, now and then, we do come across a case or two of this session of ‘self-love’ gone awry. It is important to be sexually aware so that you do not insert anything down there which does not belong anywhere near your genitals.

While everyone is on a quest to find better and novel ways to seek pleasure, it is also pretty important to be safe. Remember, just cause you can use everyday items to pleasure yourself, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should. So, when it comes to masturbation, we suggest steering clear of taking creative liberties if you are looking for an orgasm. Here is a handy guide of what you must NOT do or use when you are touching yourself down there.

1. ​Anything edible

Yes, we are talking about bananas, eggplants, cucumbers and hotdogs. It does not matter how alluring their shape is (and what ideas you get), fruits and vegetables should not go where they do not belong. The reason is pretty simple. Fruits and vegetables have a tendency to quickly fall apart and the rigorous in and out thrusting doesn’t help either. Thanks to the host of chemicals edibles are exposed to, your vagina might get inflamed or irritated.

2. Vibrating toothbrush

As tempting using a vibrating toothbrush is, you certainly don’t want the plaque and bacteria removed from your teeth inside your delicate bits. Sounds gross right? Additionally, a toothbrush can also cause cuts, tears and bleeding, which can make you more susceptible to infection down there.

3. Lotions and creams

It is important to understand that your body lotion is loaded with chemicals that can cause serious irritation and inflammation down there. It can wreck your natural ph of the vagina and also cause rashes down there.

4. Your vibrating cell or mobile phone

In case you already didn’t know, your smartphone probably has a lot more bacteria than your toilet seat. Sounds gross right? We suggest sticking to the good, old vibrator for that long-lasting (yet safe) pleasure.

5. ​The vacuum cleaner

You need to remember that this cleaning device is used to collect dust and shouldn’t exactly be placed anywhere near your delicate bits. It is NOT a suction-based sex toy and can lead to serious injuries to your private area.
