adapting sex toys for privacy
Another consideration in adapting toys is the kind of privacy you have when using a toy. This will depend in part on whether you are using a toy with a partner or by yourself, and if you are using a toy with a partner what they can do with the toy.
Two major considerations when choosing a toy that will be accessible to you is the noise and the cleaning of the toy. Both wand style electric vibrators and hard plastic battery powered vibrators can be very loud. This could be an issue if you are living with people and you don't want them knowing exactly what you are doing. If you are concerned about noise then choosing a coil type electric vibrator (Wahl 8 in 1), or soft silicone vibrator, or a rechargable vibrator would be a better bet.
The second major consideration is about the ease with which you can clean the toy. If it's possible, cleaning your own sex toys will obviously give you more privacy. Some toys are easier to clean than others. For example, waterproof vibrators can be fully immersed in water and cleaned while you are bathing or taking a shower. A non-waterproof vibrator is more difficult to clean because if you get any water near the cap it will probably damage it.
If you can get a condom onto a toy it will extend its life and make clean up easier. Some masturbation toys for men are hollow all the way through and very easy to clean just by running a wet cloth through the toy a few times. Others have one end open but the other closed. These are harder to get completely clean as you need to get a cloth in the end of the tube somehow.
