Sex toys are available in a variety of different materials. If you don't know what you're looking for when you select one the choices may be overwhelming. Educating yourself before you make the decision to buy will not only make it easier to select one, but also allows you to know the advantages and disadvantages of each type. Silicone sex toys are a popular material for making sex toys because they offer a number of benefits to the user.
Silicone sex toys are preferable to other, cheaper alternatives because they have a number of advantages that others don't. They are hypoallergenic, so even those who have a latex allergy can use them, and non-porous so they don't absorb fluids from the body, which keep away both smells and bacteria. Silicone is also water-resistant and can form watertight seals. They also don't have an odor to them, which is a complaint of those who purchase toys made of cheaper materials.
Silicone also lasts longer than some other sex toys because is resistant to UV light, ozone and oxygen so it maintains a longer shelf life, whether it gets used frequently or rarely.
Cleaning of sex toys is an important factor that should influence the type of toy you buy. Basic soap and water is safe to use on the silicone sex toys. Leave it to air dry when done to wash away any bodily fluids or lubricants.
It is also a material that can be sterilized at incredibly high temperatures. It can safely resist heat up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and be sterilized at temperatures over 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To sterilize, boil in water for five to ten minutes or run it through the dishwasher. You cannot boil or submerge a toy that vibrates or uses batteries for other functionality or it may ruin it and make it unusable.
The next time that you decide to purchase a new sex toy, splurge and spend the extra few dollars to get one made of silicone so you can experience all of its benefits. The cost is well worth it and will keep bacteria levels down, reduce smells and give you an overall better experience with using your sex toys.
