Taking a Drill to your favorite Dildo?

NY Toyfan NY Toyfan
Has anyone ever drilled a hole in the bottom of a favorite dildo to turn it into a favorite vibrator? I have a Vixen Outlaw that I would like to add a hole to so I can insert either a vibrator or a suction cup base. Is this a really bad idea or does anyone have any pointer? Thanks.

I've never tried but my guess would be that if anyone here had taken a power tool to a sex toy it would be Dwtim or Gary...I'm sure one of them will pop in soon.

Never done it, but I can certainly understand your desire to do so.

But....

The Outlaw is a big toy. I don't have an Outlaw so I don't really know, but the specs show 2" thick. He is a beast. I'm thinking that it is probably too big and heavy to use with the suction cup base that Tantus makes. Or, did you have a different solution in mind?

Additionally, do you think a bullet vibe will do much inside the Outlaw?

I'd be hesitant to risk destroying such a high quality toy trying to drill it out.

Good luck!

I'd be too scared of hurting it, I'd just insert it and hold it against the hitachi

Not yet... I have one on the way that I might try. I seem to remember that ScottA has talked about this also.

I would think that it could be done, and my thoughts are; a) Buy a bran spanking new drill bit. b) I think it would be best to freeze it first, like overnight. That way the material will be hard(er) and should make it easier to drill. c) find a way to hold it tight, if the bit grabs it will take it clean out of your hand. Plus this will give you more control of the drill, don't want a oops. d) not sure but I think the faster the drill the better.

I really think that if you don't want the bullet more than a inch or two a good sharp razor, like the kind hobbyist use, would work pretty good. Draw a circle the size of the bullet and cut it small and take your time.



Let us know.

I can't say for sure, but the Tantus suction cup is surprisingly strong. I agree that a bullet vibe wouldn't do much- I have a longer (and more powerful) Chroma that would fit into the slot.

Dwtim- Freezing it- that sounds like a good idea. The material is really soft at room temperature.

I really think that will help a lot. Might try by hand with the bit at first, should give you an idea how it will go.

I'd love to hear how it turns out.

Good Luck!

Sounds risky but like it could be a good investment if it goes well.

Dwtim - you must stike fear into most toys. First, you burn stuff and now you want freeze things

You have no idea.

I also play with radio control cars, planes etc..Lots of motors and servo's and radios.. ya I have yet to throw away a broken toy.

Freezing doesn't really affect silicone - that's one of the reasons it's used in so many places.

I haven't had good luck machining silicone even using hand methods. It just sticks together too well and the tool winds up "chattering". If you did want to try it I'd make sure to get one of the really nice "auger" style of bits with the vertical cutting lip, since a twist drill would really mess up silicone (twist drills scrape rather than cut).

I also haven't had good luck with bullet type vibrators working well in soft silicone. The vibrations get "lost" quickly. I think that that might be why few real-feel materials come with vibes.

Thanks for the feedback everyone and for the advice. I haven't heard about auger bits, but I did read somewhere that forstner bits are the way to go. I'll probably give it a try this week. I'll let you know how things turn out. Of course, if this works you may never hear from me again because I'll be spending too much time with my new creation!

Maybe hold the toy in a vice to make sure it doesn't wiggle away while you drill. Wrap it though in cloth so it doesn't get the little vice bumps indented into it.

I have never done it to anything that was going to be used again.

I second the idea of putting a Hitachi or The Wahl against the bottom of it to "power it." In fact, The Wahl has an attachment, with a suction cup, that works well for powering other toys.

I wouldn't want to ruin it. And, I doubt a bullet would vibrate the entire toy from a little hole. The Chroma? Maybe. But, a really powerful A/C vibrator simply held against it would be less likely to ruin it.

But, if you want to, go ahead. Just give us a report. WITH PICTURES!

My Man has a diamond tip drill bit. Would something like this help? Or would it be better to go with something for masonry? Masonry bits are supposed to be able to get through anything. I have NO idea if it would work with silicone. Just passing on what I know from The Man.

(No, he's never taken apart a sex toy, although he occasionally gets TOO interested in how they work. "Keep away from my toys, Boy!")

NY Toyfan,

If you really like the Outlaw, maybe you should test your drilling technique on another less desirable or less expensive toy first. ???

P'Gell is right about the Wahl suction cup attachment. We have used it and it works quite well for us. I don't know how well it will work with something as big as the outlaw though. I also agree with the others that have suggested holding a Hitachi wand against it... you will have a Wanded Outlaw!

Another question, Will the VixSkin silicone be a factor at all? How much of the Outlaw is the stiff silicone vs. the soft squishy silicone?

Good Luck!

Augur bits and Forstner bits are very similar for this application. There's a cutting edge along the side as well as a cutting edge at the base of the bit. Forstners might be better because the auger type bits have a lead screw.

Masonry or other fancy bits wouldn't help much. While we think of diamond as being the sharpest, the issue isn't really how sharp it is (and a properly sharpened metal drill is plenty sharp). What we're interested in is the geometry. Both diamond* and masonry bits have the same "scraping" action as a twist drill, and when drilling silicone this will turn into a mess because silicone is hard to cut cleanly, so scraping will never do it.

Diamond bits are made in different ways to cut very hard materials, and work by abrading (sanding) away a rim around the hole. Silicone doesn't abrade well, so it probably wouldn't work very satisfactorily. You'd also have the problem of cutting the center out of the bottom of the hole, because you're drilling a blind hole (one that doesn't come out the other side).

Wow! You all have given me a lot to think about. Using the Outlaw last night reminded me how much I don't want to lose this toy. I think I am going to take P'Gell's suggestion and give the Wahl suction attachment a try. It's cheaper to buy a Wahl than a new Outlaw. My Outlaw thanks you all for saving his ass from the drill!

If you were hoping to use it for pegging, what about using a vibrating cock ring like the Tor or Bo at the base? It certainly won't compare to the Wahl though. Good luck.

Interesting. As I said, I just know some of the things My Man has in his workshop. I don't go in there unless it is necessary.

It makes sense that this might tear or destroy the silicone.

As I said, he's never taken a workshop tool to a sex toy, I just know what he talks about (and talks about and talks about....) a lot, and obviously don't use most of these tools myself. Except for the screwdriver, hammer and pliers etc. I have my own little tool kit.

He has all the Big Hardware. My departments are different.

My fear would be ruining a nice toy like the Outlaw with any tool.

I'd say going with the Wahl is your best bet. It really has a lot of uses. I can pretty much guarantee your wife will thank you for the Wahl, in addition to your use for it.

Everyone is correct about the drill, etc simply "chewing & tearing" the Outlaw...believe me...we've already tried it all at Headquarters. Secondly, the silicone is too thick to transmit the vibrations from a small insertable, bullet-type vibe. Best wishes on trying the Wahl or Hitachi!

There ya go, we've got it right from the Source. NO drilling into the Outlaw!

Thanks for weighing in, Kitty!

I've seen this done. If you need to do this, you have bigger problems then the convertion.

I don't know if that would be a good idea to be honest. But from what everyone else is saying, it might. I personally would not do that.

using a drill on silicone just sounds like a terrible idea.
