Guide to Sex Toys Material Types

Consider the Material

You would like to know what the material is made of before you stick it to your body if you are highly neurotic or Jewish. Sex toys are usually made from six necessary materials: glass, wood, metal, hard plastic (rubber and PVC), and silicone. Depending on your desires, each product has its specific advantages.

Glass and wood are used to make dildos and are easy to clean and recycle, even nonporous. The unbending qualities of these two, together with steel, make them great for the stimulation of the g-spot, and the toys are wonderful.


Look for Materials When You Buy Sex Toys:

The fact is that if you are not making sex toys with healthy materials, they can be unsafe. This is a significant concern since the FDA does not monitor sex toys. Sex toys are sold without legal implications for manufacturers in commonly reported materials. Here is a list of things you should look for when you go online or in-person to a nearby sex toy store:


Porosity: Sex toys with pours are stimulating environments in which bacteria develop.You can still use a porous sex toy with a condom if you wish. This is due to the lack of porous sex toys.

Nonporous sex toys have an impermeable surface and are sleek. The bacteria do not contain these materials and can be sterilized in hot water or a dishwasher. A sex toy that is not porous can be made in stainless steel.

Phthalates: The chemicals increase plastic elasticity and enhance the flexibility and transparency of dildos and vibrators. Asthma, ADHD, breasts, obesity, diabetes type II, neurodevelopment, reproductive and behavioral disorders have been associated. Pregnant women and small children are among those most vulnerable to phthalate damage.

However, in many sex toys on the market, phthalates are still present. The buyer should be cautious if a sex toy is cheap. Cheap sex toys typically use phthalate-containing materials. If a sex toy is free of phthalate, a customer needs to find out more about the healthy materials.

Jelly: However, several materials do not consider all the materials used on the toy for the phthalate-free reading of sex toys. Although jelly sex toys sound very natural, jellies contain phthalates. Jelly is used widely because it is more cost-effective.


Rubber: Latex is a porous plastic frequently used for the manufacture of dildos. It’s a solid, life-like substance that always smells bad. Although the material is cheap, allergic responses are often caused, particularly for latex allergy. It should be used with a condom because the substance cannot be adequately sanitized.


PVC:This is another cheap material widely used to make sex toys affordable. In PVC, phthalates used


100% Silicone (Safe): This is not a porous and hypoallergenic material. It is also flexible and used to make toys that are realistic and bendy. They are robust, and they last longer than any unreliable jelly toy with proper care. They are more costly but useful.


Secure with Stainless Steel:This material is not porous and can quickly be heated to body temperature to make it easier for some people. It is also desirable to many and can be rapidly washed with boiling water, bleach, or dishwasher.


Safe with Borosilicate glass:This glass is typically used for sex toys. This material is suitable for a sex toy because it is nonporous, non-toxic, and does not change form at high temperatures. This makes it easy to clean through the dishwasher.


Lucite (safe):Although this hard rock material does not seem suitable for a sex toy, buying this kind of toy has many advantages. The firm texture is perfect for PC muscle building. This toy can also be used for relaxation for people with a prostate. You can clean this toy in boiling water or dishwater.
