Concerned about the chemical phthalates being found in the sex toy industry?
Many suggest the best way to avoid them is to buy only glass or silicone products.
The sex toy industry has really improved quality control even in the last 10 years.
Yes, some toys may contain small amounts of pthalates that can lead to health issues in some animals, but I’m pretty sure the animals weren’t using the products on their genitals – they were probably being injected with the stuff!
I believe in eating organic, not ingesting drugs if possible and my family thinks I’m a bit fanatical in what I eat, drink or put on my skin – so I’m pretty careful.
However, I don’t agree with the questionable tactics that say you shouldn’t use anything other than a (very costly!) silicone or glass dildo or vibrator.
These toys are about 3 or 4 times more expensive than plastic, jelly or latex options.
Clean your toys properly, toss them if they get cuts, scrapes, or dings in them and don’t expect them to last for 10 or 20 years before replacing them and you should be fine!
If you are concerned, put a condom on your toy, experiment with other brands or speak to an informed person to help you meet your sexual needs, peace of mind AND your budget!
