How to choose the right material for Dildo

Depending on your preferences, your habits, your experience, the use you want to make, your budget too, you will not turn to any object.

Since sex toys are going, whether it is a toy intended for penetration or not, come into contact with your mucous membranes or just your sensitive parts, it would be interesting to know what is toxic or not for you, because we will not hide it, the sex toy industry remains very little controlled, and even globally and it would be stupid to end up with a mycosis from the first use.

For the wrong example, we are talking about sex toys in Jelly (or gelatin), latex or PVC: they are certainly very affordable materials in terms of cost, but which remain very porous (porous globally that means that there is holes in it that can contain bacteria, microbes, so we do not share under any circumstances, even after washing) and do not last in time. These are materials according to me obsolete even if they remain still very used, for cheap sextoys precisely. They cannot be sterilized or completely disinfected.

And if that were all that!

This kind of objects contain mostly phthalates (not only), and I am not a chemist but it is a substance with very toxic properties that can alter fertility, it is carcinogenic, it can infect. In short, we do not really like it and we want to prevent it from coming into contact with our genitals.

Experts discourage objects made of these materials, especially for penetration, whether anal or vaginal, because infections do not care what hole it is.

We must also know that there are loveshops who refuse to sell this type of objects, in principle, for the health of their customers and their customers (space pleasure, passage of desire). So, if it’s possible of course, I advise to bet on something else from the start. It will be a long-term investment certainly more expensive, but it will also be “body safe” , that is to say that unless you make a bad use, for example with poor hygiene, we do not risk ‘catch the hot piss with , a priori.In any case, read the instructions before using a new toy.

ABS plastic

It is a rigid material, hypoallergenic, it does not contain phthalates, and globally cheaper than other materials that are more skin effect, such as silicone for example. Unlike the jelly, which breaks down, literally, it lasts in time.

To clean it: soap and water are enough, or a special cleaner sex toys, found in specialty shops. To disinfect it, a bit like a cup at the end of the cycle, it should not be boiled, because spoiler, plastic: it melts. No dish washer either, suddenly. On the other hand, passing a shot of isopropyl alcohol, a solvent known in particular for dissolving oils, should not spoil it. Any type of lubricant can be used with, but we ban oil-based lubricants if we ever use a condom: it would tear it.

Materials Used to Made Sex Toys

Silicon is widely used in the sextoy market as best dildo material; it is healthy for the body, provided of course that it is a product that is composed of 100%. To be sure that this is really the case, it is better to turn to brands recognized for their authenticity at this level. Silicone is a non-porous material,hypoallergenic; it is soft and supple, very pleasant to the touch unlike again, the jelly, which remains a little greasy on the hands. The silicone lasts in time, unless it is cut, for example if it comes in contact with a knife, but if it does, I do not want to know how it happened.

To clean it: soap and water, special sextoy cleaner. It can be sterilized by boiling it, using isopropyl alcohol or a 10% bleach solution. As for the type of lubricant that can be used with, we will turn more to a lubricant based on water or oil , a silicone base could make it porous, and it would be very stupid given the quality and price of sex toys in silicone! If the toy is shared or passed from the anal hole to the vagina, placing a condom on it could prevent many disasters.


Borosilicate glass (or Pyrex, like this brand of dishes and cooking utensils) is often referred to in the composition of sex toys. It is beautiful, all smooth, rigid, non-porous, and hypoallergenic. It retains temperatures quite well, which can be interesting for hot-cold effects! In addition to having a non-negligible aesthetic appearance, glass sex toys are not necessarily very expensive. Of course, if it falls to the ground, it’s broken, that’s the disadvantage. Besides the slightest shine, even if it is still in one piece, I strongly advise against use, the glass is good for pounding selective sorting. Sometimes the glass sex toys are decorated with paint and it is very pretty but it is difficult to know if it is safe or not, so if the painting is external, please be careful and at the slightest sensation burning by pity stops.

To clean it: with water and soap, special sextoy cleaner, isopropyl alcohol, 10% bleach solution, but it is not boiled . The glass being altered at more than 800 ° C, it is possible to put your glass sextoy in the dishwasher. And finally, we can use glass toys with any type of lubricant.


Stainless steel and aluminum are non-porous, smooth and rigid, like glass, but give a much more luxurious look to the object and when you say luxurious, the price follows. They also retain very good cold and heat, so gently with warm-cold games.

To clean it: with soap and water, special sextoy cleaner, isopropyl alcohol, dishwasher, no solution containing bleach however, they can be boiled, it is compatible with all types of lubricants : that’s great. However, it is a very heavy material and it can disturb some and some. Just like wooden toys, metal toys can easily last a lifetime.


It is aesthetically original, they are varnished so no worries for potential splinters unless it falls and splits, and it’s sweet! Sometimes they are handmade and even unique, so it is difficult to certify that they are 100% non-porous and non-toxic , you really need to learn about the manufacturer Nob essence, Idea of ??desire, if references t interest!). Wood is a very qualitative and expensive material that can be compatible with all lubricants and cleaned with soap and water.
