How to Choose the Safest Sex Toy Materials - How to Choose the Safest Sex Toy Materials - The Network of Care community.networkofcare.orgban site

When shopping for sex toys, the first thing to consider is the MATERIAL. Toys come in different shapes and functions, and even similar designs in different materials provide unique sensations. Choose based on your preferences, but focus on safe, non-toxic toys you can confidently use. Here's a guide to sex toy materials: What Makes a Material Safe? Safety depends on three factors: 1.1. Porous vs. Non-Porous Porous textures have microscopic holes where bacteria hide and breed, even if the surface is clean. This causes infections and STDs. Worse, porous toys can't be sterilized at home. 1.2. Chemical Composition Phthalates are harmful chemicals that make plastics more durable, also called plasticizers. While not all porous adult toys have phthalates, cheap PVC ones likely do. Phthalate exposure leads to allergic reactions and damages the liver, lungs, kidneys, digestion, and reproductive system. 1.3. Safe Design Sex toys are used intimately, so shape matters. Anal toys need wide, flared bases to avoid getting lost or stuck inside. Luckily, more brands now make body-safe toys like blowjob simulators and thrusting prostate massagers. Guide to Body Safe Sex Toy Materials *Silicone - Often used in high-end toys, praised for its non-porous, latex-free, hypoallergenic traits. Labels like "100% body safe," "medical grade," or "food grade" indicate quality. Silicone suits allergy-prone users. The non-porous texture prevents bacteria and dust buildup for easy cleaning. Use only water-based lube. Silicone lube can melt or break down silicone, which is hazardous. Cleaning: Rinse with warm water and mild soap. Allow to dry fully. *Borosilicate Glass - Glass toys are durable, won't shatter if dropped, and have aesthetic appeal. Exceptionally easy to clean with warm water. Boil or refrigerate to vary temperature. Don't microwave or freeze. Use any lube. Avoid glass with thin, narrow parts that may break. Cleaning: Soak in warm, soapy water. Refrigerate for a cool sensation. *ABS Plastic - Hard, hygienic ABS plastic excels in vibrating bullets and classic vibes. Transfers vibrations powerfully for firm stimulation. Compatible with all lubes and easy to clean. Cleaning: Warm, soapy water. Dry thoroughly. *Metal - High-quality metals like stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, gold, and silver make safe, exciting toys like hands free male masturbators. Luxurious but pricey. Refrigerate or boil like glass. Avoid cheap metals with nickel if allergic. Use any lube, silicone recommended. Cleaning: Warm water. *Wood - Hardwoods craft beautiful, functional toys. Weight and safety depends on wood type and protective coatings to stay non-porous. With care, wood lasts a lifetime. Use any lube. Cleaning: Warm, soapy water. Dry completely. Store in a cool, ventilated area. Questionable Materials Two factors make toys harmful: porous textures and/or phthalates. Porous materials can't be fully sanitized, allowing mold and bacteria. Phthalates are chemical softeners in cheap toys linked to toxicity. They cause headaches, cramps, nausea, cancer risks, and burns. Avoid toys made of or containing: *Jelly *PVC *Rubber *Latex *Thermoplastics In Conclusion The sex toy industry remains unregulated. Rely on your knowledge of material safety.
