Sex Toy Material
is a trademarked name for some sex toys made of TPR (Thermoplastic
Rubber) silicone, a blend of silicone and rubber. TPR Silicone
begins as a soft material with the ability to be made into products
of varying degrees of hardness.
silicone is less porous than jelly rubber but is more porous than
100% silicone. The benefit of a silicone mix is that it will last
longer than a toy made of other materials such as jelly rubber. The
downside of a silicone mix is that it may contain phthalates used
to soften other materials in the blend.
Some sex toys are made from Cybersilicone. Other examples of products
made from TPR Silicone are toothbrush handles to soft bicycle handle
Or Toxin Warnings
According to the manufacturer, Cybersilicone is hypoallergenic and
free of phthalates. Adult toys that are a blend of silicone with other
materials, such as rubber may contain phthalates, which is a chemical
used to soften plastics that has been shown to be linked to several
environmental and individual health issues. If you are considering
purchasing a silicone blend sex toy, we recommend checking with the
manufacturer on whether or not the product is free of phthalates or
purchasing from a store such as Holistic Wisdom, Inc. that is committed
to offering only nontoxic sexual products. Manufacturers such as Tantus,
Fun Factory and Vibratex offer only high quality, 100% silicone sex
toys that are guaranteed to be nontoxic.
Cybersilicone should be cleaned with mild soap and warm water or antibacterial
sex toy cleaners. Cybersilicone contains only a percentage of silicone
along with a mixture of other materials; therefore you cannot sterilize
by boiling as you can a high quality 100% medical grade silicone toy.
The use of a condom with your Cybersilicone sex toy is recommended
to eliminate risk of exposure to harmful bacteria or toxins. We recommend
storing Cybersilicone items in a storage/separation bag or wrapped
in thin material, as the porous surface can absorb anything it comes
in contact with.
Waterbased only. Silicone or oil base lubricants will damage this
material. We also recommend using a condom with Cybersilicone products,
as they easily absorb germs and bacteria due to the porosity of the
TPR Silicone is recyclable. The recycle process is in two parts. First
the production waste is recycled and then the finished product can
be recycled as well.
