Make Your Own Toys

Toys are not essential to D/s or BDSM, all you need is the human mind and a little imagination. Toys can, however, offer new directions, new facets and new angles on play…

From adding style and image, with a Domme’s high boots, a submissive’s corset, a crop hanging from the waist, to a ticklish scrap of fake fur, from collars and cuffs to literally adding that extra spark to your love life, there are a huge variety of toys and accessories out there. Whatever your kink, your perversion and your pleasure, there is bound to be something for you to either accentuate your scenes, perfect your lifestyle, or simply… “play with” toys.

Creating A Basic Toy Box…

Buying custom made toys can be expensive. Good quality leather, rope and metal work takes a lot of time and effort, with the prices reflecting that.

While nothing can quite compare with a range of custom made toys, it is still possible to improvise for a fraction of the cost. For less than the cost of a single well made toy, you can set up a well equipped basic toy box that you can use as the basis to build on later, when experience and money permit…

The elastic strap flogger… Get an elastic luggage strap from Halfords or similar, and a wooden trowel handle from a garden centre…

Cut off the hook from one end, then hot glue the cut end into the trowel handle. Then unpeel the plaited outer covering from the luggage strap…and bingo, you have a lovely flogger with hundreds of little rubber strands. Varnish the handle, drill a hole through the top and insert a leather lace…

Beach bat… Get a beach bat from any toy shop…also get a lambskin polisher (for a black and decker drill), from any do it yourself shop.With a profile saw, recut the beach bat to the size of the lambskin polisher, then glue the lambskin to one side, and rub down and varnish the other side. If you wish to, you can tape the handle using leather tape from any drapers store. So, one side is varnished wood, and the other, lovely soft lambskin….you can play all sorts of lovely games with this.

An effective ball gag… Can be made for about £2.50. Get a hard red ball from a pet shop, and also a nylon webbing strap about 14″long and ¾” wide… Put a sharp knife blade right through the ball insert the strap through, and superglue it in place.

Nipple/Clit Clamps… Clothespegs are, of course, a perfect toy. A word of advice, however. If you’re just starting to experiment, you might want stick with wooden clothespegs rather than the plastic ones that have the ridged grips. At least until you’re used to them.

Small jaw clips for your hair are easy to use and give a slightly different feel than clothespins. If you can find the pretty ones shaped like butterflies, or the like, those are fun to play with from time to time.

Another great example are small plastic spring clamps. The handles look a bit like pliers, and they have just the right amount of “bite” to them without being too harsh.

Also, chopsticks and rubber bands are handy. Place a chopstick on each side of the nipple, and use the rubber bands to secure above and below the nipple. You can control how tight they are by how many times you wind the rubber band. Very nice effect.

Rope and other Restraints… Your local B&Q store is a great place to find bondage toys. Browse the rope aisle. There are several kinds. Try to to stay away from anything that is nylon, or man made though, it tends to lead to friction burns…

Velcro Restraints… Dont you just love Velcro…

Feather dusters… Are another cheap item that are lots of fun to play with…

Pizza Wheels… You know the ones you use to cut it with, well they make really great toys especially if you freeze them first…

Cling Film… Is great for wrapping, just be carefull with it, it can make your sub over heat…
