Benefits of Silicone Sex Toys
Silicone is an ideal material for sex toys for penetration.
It warms up to body temperature, transmits vibrations well, is non-porous, easy to clean, and much more durable.
Silicone is recommended for people concerned about having allergic reactions to sex toys materials.
It is available in a wide variety of densities, and an unbelievable range of shapes and colours.
TAKING CARE OF SILICONE TOYS:
You can use soap, rubbing alcohol, or bleach to clean silicone sex toys (if you are using alcohol or bleach, be careful to rinse thoroughly).
Providing there are no moving parts (vibrators), you can boil silicone sex toys in water, or put them on the top shelf of your dishwasher to clean. Different manufacturers suggest different lengths of time, usually between 3-5 minutes for boiling.
You can use a water based or oil based personal lubricant but do not use silicone based lubricants with silicone sex toys.
Silicone is very durable, but can tear easily. Keep sharp edges away from your silicone toys.
SAFER SEX WITH SILICONE TOYS:
It is possible to transmit infections on sex toys that have not been sterilized even if they have been washed.
Silicone sex toys may be boiled in water for between 3-5 minutes. To prevent transmission of bodily fluids or bacteria it is recommended that you boil your toy following the instructions provided by the manufacturer
If you are going to share a sex toy with a partner use a condom on the toy to prevent transmission of bodily fluids, or boil your toy before a new person uses it.
While it is not recommended, if you are going to use a toy both vaginally and anally use a condom to prevent transmission of bacteria, or boil your toy between uses.
