When I first began flirting with my bisexuality, I tried inserting a couple of household items. Not a bright idea, I know, but I was a lot younger and dumber at the time. For a while, I used the knurled handle end of a fireplace tool to fuck myself with. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The handle appeared to be one continuous piece with the rest of the tool, and it was so large with a shovel on the other end, I thought there was no way anything bad could happen. One night after taking it out, I noticed that the handle actually threaded onto the rest of the tool, and it was literally hanging on by the last thread. That was the last time I tried a homemade toy. Any others have close calls or worse with such items?
