Sex Toys 101

This is an educational task. Welcome to Non-Toxic Sex Toys 101.

When selecting a toy, it’s very important to make sure that you are buying safe, nontoxic toys to use on your most sensitive bits. However the sex toy industry is not regulated, and no one in particular is looking out for our safety when it comes to sex toy industry standards. So, how do you pick a safe toy?

What is it made of?

Avoid toys made with Phthalates, Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic rubber (TPR), thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), jelly rubber, and latex.

Many products claim they are phthalate-free, but no one verifies these claims. Are your sex toys soft and jellylike? Phthalates are used as softeners. They are more likely to be present in squishier toys, made from more porous materials.

Toys that are porous and have more permeable surfaces are more likely to harbor bacteria that transmit infections.

Instead, opt for non-porous sex toys made of medical grade Silicone, stainless steel, glass, Pyrex, or ABS plastics. Beware of cheap, toxic counterfeit products.

Which non-porous material is the best? Sexperts say silicone. Silicone has a silky feel to it. It’s a little more expensive than ABS plastic, which is also body-safe but less soft to the touch. Glass and metal are going to be more expensive, but friction-free.


How do you plan to store your expensive new toy? How do you plan to lubricate it? Don’t forget the condoms if you plan to share your new toy with a partner you are not fluid-bonded to!

Lubrication may just be the most important consideration of all.

If you plan to do butt stuff, get silicone based lube. It lasts longer! But it can NOT be used with silicone based toys – it will bond with the toy and warp the shape of it.

Water based lubes are compatible with silicone toys, and are easier to clean from clothing and other surfaces.

You can also get oil based lubes or aloe-based lubes. These tend to dry out quicker than silicone lube and may have to be reapplied frequently. Also, oil-based lubes (including coconut oil) are not compatible with latex, and can make latex barriers (like condoms) less effective.

Clean your toys after each sex act and partner!

The bacteria that cause Urinary Tract Infections live around the anus. Sex can cause this nearby bacteria to migrate into the urethra, where they can trigger a UTI. Planned Parenthood’s website warns, “Anything that touches or goes into your anus — like a finger, penis, or sex toy — should be thoroughly washed before touching other genitals.”

You can also spread Sexually Transmitted Infections because viruses and bacteria can live on surfaces. Sex toys can also get covered in dust or other particles.

Be careful to dry your toys after you wash them, because they can also grow mold.

Every toy is different. What is safe for one toy can destroy another toy or make it unsafe to use. Make sure to read the instructions for each toy and follow the procedure outlined in order to keep your toys in good condition and protect your health.

Condoms reduce the risk of Infections

If you are sharing your toys with a partner, ALWAYS cover toys with a condom if possible. Even if you clean your toys between every partner and use, traces may remain. You can still transmit infections such as HPV by sharing toys that have been cleaned. Also, discard the condom and use a brand new one if you go from ass to mouth, or from mouth to vagina.

Identify Trusted Brands

It can be hard to know what you are getting unless you are very well versed in sex products and toys. It’s a great idea to read online reviews and thoroughly research any product you are considering.

Look for a manufacturer who provides details about the materials they are using as well as instructions on how to clean and use their toys.

Types of toys

There are so many options to choose from that it can be quite daunting! Dildos, Vibrators, Anal Beads, Butt Plugs, Clit Suckers, Prostate massagers, and more! What’s a horny boy or girl to do??

So, now that you have an idea of what to consider when buying a sex toy… Let’s begin, shall we?

Your Task: Do some basic research on the types of toys that you are considering, and try to identify a style of toy that you want to try.

Your Reward: You have also been educated so that you can hopefully avoid buying toxic toys that will hurt you or damage your health.
