DIY Sex Toys: How to Make an Ice Dildo in 6 Easy Steps

DIY sex toys may sound a bit on the cheap side and well, to be honest, it is! You see, not everyone has the budget for good, quality sex toys. Moreover, many of us simply get horny and start looking for things around the house we can use to get ourselves off. But the most obvious reason for DIY sex toys is that you can create something you can’t buy online or in a sex shop.

Hence, the DIY ice dildo!

I am going to show you how to make an ice dildo in 6 easy steps using things you likely already have around the house. Plus, I am going to take it a few steps further and show you how to create textured and larger ice dildos.

So, take some notes and let’s have some fun making DIY ice dildos!

Why Make an Ice Dildo?

If you just stumbled across this blog post by chance, you are probably wondering why make an ice dildo? Well, ice dildos are all about temperature play, something many people enjoy. Temperature play is using hot and cold items – like ice and hot wax – to tease and tantalize our body’s nerve endings.

Plus, it’s much more popular and mainstream than you may think. For instance, Men’s Health has an article titled “3 Things to do with Ice Cubes in Bed.”  Popular women’s magazine Cosmopolitan also has a temperature play article on sexy things you can do with ice cubes. From going down on your man or lady or seductively sliding and ice cube down your lover’s body, ice play is hot.

Finally, temperature play is a way to electrify your senses, especially when using a blindfold. From a Refinery 29 article on temperature play, we found this:

“’When temperature play is negotiated and consented to, the brain starts preparing for a sexy and exciting experience, and basically puts nerve endings in the body — erogenous zones, but also everywhere else — on high alert for new sensations,’ says Dulcinea Pitagora, a sex therapist known as the Kink Doctor.”

Now that you know the reasons why to make an ice dildo, let’s get started on how to make an ice dildo in 6 easy steps.

How to Make an Ice Dildo Step-By-Step

Making an ice dildo is easy to do and will provide you and your lover with hours of stimulating fun without the huge mess ice cubes can create. Plus, you can get creative with our extra tips below. So, let’s get started.

#1 Gather Your Supplies

Gather Your Supplies

In order to make an ice dildo, you will need the following items:

  • Cardboard tube from paper towels or wrapping paper (you can make one using poster board or the cardboard of a notebook too)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A condom (lubricated is fine, just not the spermicide type as it creates an odd texture when frozen) I used a glow-in-the-dark condom for fun!
  • Tap water

#2 Cut Your Cardboard Tube and Tape it to the Desired Width

Using your scissors, cut down the side of the cardboard tube, lengthwise. Then, position the tube to your desired girth and tape the cut closed.

#3 Place Condom Inside the Tube

Next, unroll the condom and place it into the tube, leaving a couple of inches at the top. Carefully fold the top of the condom over the opening of the tube. You may have to reshape the tube with your hands a bit if the condom smashes the cardboard tube.

#4 Fill the Condom with Water

Carefully fill the condom with water using a pitcher or the tap. Go slowly as not to overfill and cause the cardboard to get wet. The more water you add, the more the condom stretches lengthwise.

#5 Place in the Freezer Upright

Next, place your mold into the freezer, standing upright. It should take a few hours for your ice dildo to be frozen solid depending on your freezer and how much food is inside. My freezer had quite a bit in it so my ice dildos took about 4 hours to freeze solid.

#6 Tie the Condom and Remove Cardboard

Once the ice dildo is frozen solid, pull the excess condom from the top and tie it into a knot, as you would tie a balloon. Then, remove the tape from your cardboard mold and pull out your DIY ice dildo! I was able to pull mine right out without cutting the tape.

How to Create Textured Ice Dildos

When making your DIY ice dildo, it should come out smooth and phallic shaped – perfect for teasing the body from head to toe as well as icy cool vaginal penetration. But, if you want to add some additional sensation to your ice dildo, try these tips to add texture.

Using Textured Condoms

For this ice dildo, I used a Trojan Ultra Ribbed condom and a Kool-Aid Cooler bottle. Simply cut the bottom from the bottle and cover the edges with duct tape. Then, follow the instructions above. When freezing, you’ll have to prop this one up, but mine came out beautifully!

Using Rope, Cord or Pipe Cleaners

For this one, I used a notebook cover and pipe cleaners – which I glued to the cardboard using a hot glue gun – and a Magnum condom. Although the photo doesn’t pick up the texture, the dildo came out with deep ridges around it.

Using Bubble Wrap

I tried covering the inside of a tube with bubble wrap to see if I could create texture. I even used a Magnum condom, which is larger in length and girth. However, the ice dildo came out smooth. So, I wouldn’t recommend the bubble wrap method.

Size Matters; How to Make a Larger Ice Dildo

While having sex, admittedly, size does matter. Some of us are fine with average sized dildos. However, when you are dealing with the decreased sensation that ice can provide, a large dildo may be wanted. Therefore, here are some ice dildo tweaks to give you that icy monster dong you crave.

Soda Bottle Ice Dildos

For this big boy, I used a soda bottle. Simply cut off the bottom and turn the bottle upside-down and onto it’s cap. Cover the rough edges with duct tape. Next, carefully and slowly stretch the condom over the opening – I used a Magnum condom to get more girth. Additionally, you’ll get less tearing if you use a thicker condom. Then freeze the dildo 3-4 hours.

When the dildo is frozen, tie the top and carefully use scissors or cut the bottle half way down and the dildo will come out easily.

Cautions When Using an Ice Dildo

Alright, along comes mom to ruin all the fun with cautions you need to heed when using an ice dildo. And these aren’t just suggestions, they are things you must follow as not to become injured while having sexy, temperature play.

  1. Run cool water over the ice dildo before use. This is extremely important so that you don’t end up with the tongue-on-the-frozen-flagpole injury – only it will be a nipple, testicle or clitoris – OUCH! If this happens, hold the ice dildo as still as possible as you pour cool water over the area. The ice and skin will easily come unstuck.

2. Never use an ice dildo in the anus. Sure, it’s okay to tease the outside of the anus but placing the ice dildo inside could result in serious injury. First, the ice’s numbing effect will cause you not to feel pain. And since anal sex is about relaxation and training, you could become injured if you cannot feel that pain. Plus, without a wide base, an ice dildo can easily slip past the anal sphincter and get pulled up and inside the colon – meaning an embarrassing trip to the ER.

3. Prepare to get wet. Okay, this isn’t as much a cautionary suggestion as it is a tip. As the ice melts, the condom will get wet with condensation (plus a really amazing-feeling effect). And, the top of the ice dildo may leak as it melts. Therefore, be prepared by laying down towels, using a waterproof mattress pad, doggy wee wee pads or playing in the tub or shower.

How Does an Ice Dildo Feel?

So, now you’re curious about ice dildos and may be asking, “How does an ice dildo feel?” And to answer that question, I recruited some testers to try out our DIY ice dildos and report back with their experiences.

K and her boyfriend tried out the textured ice dildo and had this to say:

“Playing with the ice dildo was interesting. The first thing I noticed is how the condom slid back and forth on the ice as it melted, kinda like a penis. My boyfriend and I teased each other from head to toe. But the best part was when my boyfriend used the ice dildo on me and would alternate with his penis. That was amazing!”

Jay and his wife used the glow-in-the-dark ice dildo and this is what he had to say about their wild night:

“I blindfolded Nikki and tied her to the bed. I used the ice dildo starting at her neck and trailed it down her body. I teased her nipples, her belly, that little dent on the insides of her thighs, her legs and toes. She wiggled and squirmed but was going wild. I rubbed her clit with the dildo, then would slide it in and out while I gave her oral. She was begging me to get inside her!

It did get a little wet and messy, but we had towels down so it wasn’t any big deal. The wetness just added to the turn-on factor.”

DIY Sex Toys Are Fun!
