Phthalates – The Toxic Material to Avoid

Phthalates – The Toxic Material to Avoid

To put it simply, phthalates are a group of chemicals that help to soften and increase flexibility in sex toys.

Not only are they considered to be carcinogens (i.e. something that causes cancer), but they also can affect your human reproduction system.

It requires a lot more phthalates to get a thick dildo to be bendy and flexible compared to a thin shower curtain.

Sex toys don’t just come into contact with your skin, but inside your vagina, your anus, and even possibly your mouth.

Almost all baby pacifiers had phthalates in them until 1999 due to health concerns; Concerns that still apply to sex toys that use this toxic material.

If it isn’t clear whether their products contain phthalates, and you can’t get ahold of them, don’t buy from them.

Jelly Sex Toys

While jelly material makes sex toys flexible, they almost always have include phthalates along with a number of other negatives.

So if you really find a sex toy that appeals to you and it is listed as using a jelly material, check with the seller on if it contains phthalates.

So all in all, even if the jelly material doesn’t have phthalates in them, it still isn’t nearly worth it.

Plastic Sex Toys

Which makes perfect sense considering phthalates are meant to make materials more flexible, while plastic is meant to remain hard and rigid.

Vibrators that use a rigid plastic material, like Blissful Cherry’s own 7″ classic vibrators, are great for heightend vibration sensations.

The only real downside to this material is that the look and feel of it does not give off a sense of luxury.

Silicone Sex Toys

This means that it is impossible for any bacteria to build up on the toy, assuming you clean it well.

As a result, you will find that silicone sex toys are typically more expensive than other sex toys out there.

One key thing to note about silicone sex toys is that you should not be using silicone lubricants with them.

Glass Sex Toys

While most sex toys are inserted at typical room temperature, glass dildos can be heated or cooled to create a different pleasure sensation.

Unlike silicone sex toys, glass sex toys can use any sort of lubricant, without causing any long-term damage to your sex toy.

Metal Sex Toys

They are very similar to glass material in that they are rigid and conveys a similar sense of elegance and sophistication through its shiny, metallic surface.

And while the added weight and pressure can boost the pleasurable sensations in some women, it can just as easily be too much for others.
