The Sex Toy Phenomenon

The ordentlike mense cringe at this but most of you would have used one or many by now. Either by yourself or to spice up the old sex life. Everyone is aware of sex toys and 8 out of 10 people own one.

kaleidoscopic, glow-in-the-dark, glitteratti latex, jelly or rubber toys that line the walls of the average adult store are made in China using cheap and potentially toxic materials that get absorbed through the linings of the vajayjay or anus. The material is also a breeding ground for bacteria and because it’s cheap and nasty it breaks down after a while and you get bits and pieces stuck in intimate places.

If you see anything that says “novelty toys” steer well clear as this means that the manufacturers take no responsibility should any harm come to you. If you have Jelly, latex and rubber toys under your bed, check if the sheen has left your jelly toy or if the surface has gone dull , if it has, it’s time to let go and get something new.

If you have a latex allergy you’ll want to go for silicone, glass or acrylic products. They’re generally more expensive, but are non-porous, non-toxic and won’t give your insides a chemical peel.

There you have it. Be sure to choose the right toy for you, but also make sure it’s safe to use. If you’re not sure, use the internet, talk to people, ask the questions. There is no shame in a bit bit of self whoopee.
