Artificial Vagina

An artificial vagina is a rubber or foam sex toy with a cylindrical opening in which a penis can be inserted. You can buy an artificial vagina at adult novelty retailers or make your own by following step-by-step instructions available from Internet DIY experts.

While blow-up dolls, with their permanently open orifices, are a mainstay of many bachelor parties, an artificial vagina may pose a more practical way to offer a little self-satisfaction. After all, it stores easily and doesn't require an air pump before you can get busy.

However, if you enjoy inflatable sex toys, you'll have lots of options to choose from. For those who prefer a more "out of this world" experience, there's the Area 51 Love Doll: It has three breasts, a vagina-shaped mouth, suction cup fingers and anus-shaped ears, all for alien-inspired fun [source: Fortey].
