What is silicone and what makes silicone sex toys different from others available on the market? Silicone is an inactive synthetic compound that has a similar feel to rubber and is heat resistant. It is free from phthalates (substances added to plastics in order to make them more flexible and longer lasting) which are believed to harbour chemicals which can result in carcinogenic and mutagenic effects on the skin. Some cheaper sex toys in the adult market still contain phthalates which may or may not be harmful to the skin.
Silicone sex toys are usually made from high quality medical grade silicone which is also used in medical applications. Medical grade silicone is perfectly suited to the manufacture of adult toys because it is durable and hard-wearing. Silicone sex toys also have many other plus points when compared to cheaper alternatives. As previously mentioned, they do not contain phthalates. They also have the quality of being silky smooth to the touch and are soft enough for easy insertion but hard enough to retain their shape and therefore provide real pleasure. Silicone sex toys are also hypoallergenic, odourless, tasteless, anti-allergic, waterproof (making them easy to clean) and non-toxic. Their durable properties also allow them to be warmed up, cooled down and even washed in the dishwasher! Some silicone sex toys come with the added bonus of having a degree of flexibility meaning they can be moulded into different shapes making it even easier to hit your sweet spot.
There are a number of brands that are famous for their range of silicone sex toys. Fun Factory Sex Toys are so uniquely styled that they have won awards for their innovative designs. Their high quality products include anal sex toys, clit massagers, male sex toys, vaginal balls and strapless strap ons. Tantus Sex Toys are also renowned for their original designs and quality products which are predominantly made up of vibrators and dildos that are suited for anal or vaginal pleasures, and butt plugs. The majority of their colourful toys have flared bases making them compatible for harness use.
As with all quality products silicone sex toys do cost more than cheaper alternatives with some silicone adult toys having an RRP of up to £100. However it is possible to also pick up a quality vibrator or anal toy for around the £20 mark. It is well worth paying the initial outlay if you consider that while some cheaper sex toys may only last a year or two, silicone sex toys are durable enough to keep going for many more years to come. The fact that they can be warmed or cooled (adding to the array of sensations you can experience) and are also waterproof are further advantages.
