Ooooooooh old silicone dildos! I’m sure it’s something everyone has tucked away in their drawers, bought years ago through embarrassment or curiosity. But where the heck do you put them or what do you do with them? Here are a few ideas!
The first thing that comes to mind is donating them. A lot of sex shops these days even have a ‘donation’ bin for people tooffload their unwanted silicone toys. You know you’re not alone, and someone, somewhere out there is probably in mid need of a quality toy. Monetarily speaking, you may not get much back in return, but you’d sure be doing somebody else a solid.
The second most recommended option is thrift-shopping! We all know thrifting is on the rise in recent years, and it’s a great way to keep old, plastic, silicone, or wooden toys out of the landfill. There are even a few websites that specialize in vintage, used sex toys. All you have to do is have a look online and find the right place to resell them.
For those who are a bit more adventurous, I’d suggest trying your hand at recycling. Depending on the type of silicone toy, you can actually turn it into something new using a heated mold system. Costing way less than owning two new silicone toys, this is the perfect way to return your toys to their former glory. You’ll even be able to play around with different textures and colors.
And finally, if you’re feeling creative why not get crafty? People have made keychains, fridge magnets, jewellery and so much more using recycled silicone dildo’s. If you’re anything like me, you probably already have a stack of old, unused silicone toys, just sitting in a drawer. Turn them into something new and interesting this weekend.
If you’re feeling bold you can even go a step further and invent accessories for your silicone dildo! This is a fun way to add a personalized touch to your sex toy while also giving it a second life. Think different colors, unique shapes, special features and playful decorations.
And experimentation is not just limited to the accessories — I’ve heard of some amazing ideas that are as creative as they are practical! For instance, the ever popular (and apparently very effective) idea of turning an old silicone dildo into a cat scratcher. All you need is a few materials and a little elbow grease and you’ll have a cat-scratching post in no time.
At the end of the day, it’s totally up to you how you use your silicone dildos. You can choose to donate them, sell them, recycle them, make something new out of them, or just keep them tucked away in the drawer. Whatever you decide, no one is here to judge!
