All of our products are made of body-safe material such as silicone and glass. We don’t carry any toys that are made with porous or toxic materials such as Jelly, TPE/TPR, Vinyl etc.
Sex toys that are porous make a cozy home for bacteria to grow. Bacteria thrive in these places because they can’t be properly sterilized.
Nonporous sex toys are smoother and have a water-resistant surface. These materials do not harbor bacteria because they can be sterilized with boiling water, mild soap, or in a dishwasher.
How To Clean And Care For Your Toys
Silicone is a great material because it is body-safe, durable, and retains body heat. One benefit of silicone is that it is very hypoallergenic, so these toys are ideal for folks with sensitive skin.
Silicone is nonporous, meaning the material surface doesn’t have any pores for bacteria to live in, and it is very easy to clean
If the toy is 100% silicone and doesn’t have a motor, you can boil the toy for 5-10 minutes or wash it with any soap you would use on your body. Boiling is the most thorough way of disinfecting the toy, however. Unless the motor is removable, don’t boil a silicone toy with a motor!
- Toys with motor (rechargeable/battery-operated) should come with a manual telling you if it’s waterproof or not – however some toys boast waterproof abilities when they aren’t actually, the safest way to wash them is to rinse them with water while avoiding the charging port and battery compartment – try not to submerge the product unless you are absolutely sure that it is WATERPROOF and SUBMERSIBLE. You can also just wipe them down with wet cloth and/or wet wipes that are specifically for sex toys!
If you plan on using a toy on multiple bodies that aren’t fluid-bonded*, boiling the toy is the only way to disinfect the toy so that no fluids are being passed. Otherwise, you can place a condom over the toy to safely share it.
It’s important to NOT use silicone based lubes with silicone toys. The silicone lube will cause solid silicone to melt and will permanently damage the toy. If you place a condom over the toy, you can safely use the toy with silicone lube.
*fluid-bonded: couples who don’t practice safe sex with each other and are strictly monogamous.
Glass toys are hypoallergenic, and incredibly easy to clean. Additionally, toys made from this material are great for temperature play because they hold on to temperature very well, and are compatible with all lubes.
Glass is nonporous, meaning the material surface doesn’t have any pores for bacteria to live in, and it is very easy to clean
You can boil these toys for 5-10 minutes, run them through the dishwasher, or wash them with any soap you would use on your body.
