Sex Toy Material
rubber is an elastic hydrocarbon polymer which occurs as a milky
emulsion in the sap of a number of plants but can also be produced
synthetically. Vinyl rubber is somewhat less porous and is a
better quality material than latex rubber but is not as good
quality as adult toys made of Silicone.
Many lower quality sex toys are made from vinyl rubber. These toys
tend to emit a strong chemical ordor and flavor. Examples of other
products made from vinyl rubber are dog/cat toys and specialized erasers.
Or Toxin Warnings
Vinyl Rubber may contain phthalates. Phthalates
are a family of chemicals that are used to soften rubbers and plastics.
There is a growing body of evidence that shows phthalates pose a health
risk and can have a toxic effect. If you own a vinyl rubber adult
toy, and suspect that it may contain phthalates, we highly recommend
the use of a condom to reduce the risk of possible exposure. Another
option is to purchase toys that are phthalate free such as toys made
of Elastomer or Silicone. It is also important to note that vinyl
rubber adult toys can contain latex which is an allergen for some
people. For individuals with a sensitivity or allergy to latex we
recommend you check with the store or manufacturer to find out if
the vinyl rubber contains latex before you purchase your sex toy or
purchasing adult toys made of 100% Medical Grade Silicone.
Vinyl Rubber sex toys may be cleaned with mild soap and water or antibacterial
sex toy cleaner. Vinyl rubber is porous and can harbor harmful
bacteria if they are not cleaned properly with sex toy cleaner after
each use. Vinyl rubber cannot be sterilized by boiling, therefore
It is possible to spread infection or disease even if it has been
washed. We recommend the use of condoms when sharing sex toys that
cannot be sterilized such as toys made of Vinyl Rubber. We highly
recommend storing Vinyl Rubber items in a storage/separation bag or
wrapped in thin material, as the porous surface can absorb anything
it comes in contact with.
