Sex Toy Material
Touch is a trademarked name for a variation of softened thermoplastic
elastomer, a blend of polyvinyl chloride and silicone and other
chemicals. Private Touch is similar to Cyberskin in texture
and feel but may contain phthalates, a chemical blend used for
Some adult toys are made from Private Touch material. TPE has many
other uses as well. Some examples include automobile airbag covers,
yoga mats and medical catheters.
Or Toxin Warnings
Private Touch may not be phthalate free. If you are considering purchasing
a Private Touch 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 the most porous of
all sex toy materials, therefore it easily harbors bacteria and cannot
be sterilized. We recommend using a condom with adult toys made of
Private Touch to protect against possible exposure to toxins and bacteria.
Private Touch 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 very porous, therefore easily harbors bacteria and cannot be sterilized.
We suggest condom use with any product made of Private Touch material.
We highly recommend storing items made of Private Touch 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 Private Touch toys in a cool, dry place.
Waterbased only. Silicone or oil base lubricants will damage this
material. We also recommend using a condom with Private Touch products,
as they easily absorb germs and bacteria due to the high porosity
of the material.
