Sex Toy Material
is a trademarked brand of a softened variation of thermoplastic
elastomer, a blend of polyvinyl chloride and silicone. Futurotic
is similar to Cyberskin in texture and feel but may contain
phthalates, a chemical blend used for softening.
Some adult toys are made from Futurotic such as the 4- Way Arouser
, Electronic Stroke Master and Teegan's Masturbation Sleeve. TPE has
many other uses as well. Some examples are automobile airbag covers,
yoga mats and medical catheters.
Or Toxin Warnings
Futurotic may not be phthalate free. We suggest referring to manufacturer
or item description if concerned item may not be free of toxins. If
you are considering purchasing a Futurotic 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. This material is also very
porous therefore easily harbors bacteria and cannot be sterilized.
We recommend using a condom with adult toys made of Futurotic to protect
against possible exposure to toxins and bacteria.
Futurotic is extremely porous and should be cleaned between each use
with warm water and mild soap or antibacterial sex toy cleaners. Once
dry, sprinkle with the included "renewing" powder or cornstarch. Never
use talcum powder or baby powder, as these can cause irritation and
sometimes larger problems for women. Corn starch and a soft cloth
may also be used to bring the toy back to life. (Talcum powder has
been implicated as a possible cause of ovarian cancer.) This material
is also very porous, therefore easily harbors bacteria and cannot
be sterilized. We suggest condom use with any product made of Futurotic
material. We highly recommend storing Futurotic items in a storage/separation
bag or wrapped in thin material, as the porous surface can absorb
anything it comes in contact with. It is also recommended that you
store Futurotic toys in a cool, dark place.
Use only water based lubricants with Futurotic products. Silicone
or petroleum based oils will damage this material. We also recommend
using a condom with Futurotic products, as they easily absorb germs
and bacteria due to the porosity of the material.
