Great Sex Secrets

Jelly rubber toys are made of soft, porous material that cannot be disinfected. Jelly rubber is usually a translucent, soft, and flexible substance that might looks like it contains air bubbles.

Latex or latex like materials are sometimes an ingredient. Some people are allergic or sensitive to latex. Even thought the amount used in the material manufacturing process are small and don’t have disclosed on the labels, for super sensitive people it may be enough for them to react.

 

Some jelly rubber toys may also contain rubber softeners such as phthalates. Phthalates have had some press in the past few years for potential negative health effects. So far I have not found any solid data either way…so I suggest you read up on the latest news and research on phthalates and decide for yourself. You can always condom a toy to act as a barrier between you and the toy, and to assist in clean up.

Passion Parties toys are Phthalate Free!

Cleaning:  Clean them with toy cleaner and warm water, and store in a cool, dry place away from other objects. If your toy is not waterproof, please take care not to get water in its battery pack or cord.

Lube: Use Water based lubes are recommended.

Cleaning:.  For more delicate blends, or if you are not sure what the toy material is… stick to warm water and toy cleaner. Wash before and after use with toy cleaner to prevent contamination and maintain PH balance. rinse with warm water and air or pat dry.

Storage:  When dry, store in individual plastic bags for best results. Remove batteries before storage.

Latex is very porous and does not contain phthalates.

However, keep in mind that there are many people who are sensitive to Latex. So it is important to be aware of which materials could contain latex. Passion Parties does not carry any toys made from latex, but you can find some out there.

Condoms are usually made with latex. They are very durable and can fit over massager heads, dildoes, items shared between multiple partners and any item used anally. Latex dams can also be used to cover surfaces while still transmitting temperature and sensations.

If you are sensitive to latex, polyurethane condoms are also available.

Lube: Use only water-based lubes with rubber or latex, as oil/petroleum -based substances will break it down and destroy latex! That means oil-based lubricants, massage oils, butter, olive oil…anything containing oil. Silicone Lubricants with caution.

Cleaning:.  Wash before and after use with toy cleaner, rinse with warm water and air or pat dry. Because latex is so porous, it is more difficult to clean. Use with condoms for easier clean up. If your toy is waterproof, check to make sure there’s a tight seal around the battery compartment before immersing. After immersing, air dry the battery area. If your toy is not waterproof, use the spritz and rinse method.

Storage:  When dry, store in individual plastic bags for best results. Remove batteries before storage.

The Plush Bendy - Great Rubber Toy (with a secret bonus)

Rubber is Porous and does not contain Phthalates. It is  Firm, flexible, and often heavy. Rubber dildos are porous and often need more care to clean than the average toy to clean and maintain.

Most rubber is produced using petroleum.  However, some (about 1/4th of the rubber produced) is made from latex extracted from trees. Each or the two source produces a different type of rubber with different properties.

Polymers, which are large molecules made from petroleum, make up synthetic rubbers.  Natural rubbers are made from elastic latexes.

During World War II, natural rubber supplies were largely cut off to the United States.  It was then the need for the commodity encouraged serious experimentation into producing synthetic rubber.  While synthetics still predominate, the natural rubber is still desirable for many applications because it has a greater resilience. Plus, it makes great radial tires.

Lube: Use only water-based lubes with rubber or latex, as oil/petroleum -based substances will break it down. That means all oil-based lubricants, massage oils, butter, olive oil, Vaseline  or anything containing oil. Use of silicone based lubricants is possible, as long as you are certain the toy does not contain silicone.

Cleaning:.  Wash before and after use with toy cleaner, rinse with warm water and air or pat dry. Used with condoms for easier clean up. If your toy is waterproof, check to make sure there’s a tight seal around the battery compartment before immersing. After immersing, air dry the battery area. If your toy is not waterproof, use the spritz and rinse method.

Storage:  When dry, store in individual plastic bags for best results. Remove batteries before storage.

How about a basic overview of common sex toy materials. For starters, I think one of the most important thing to understand is the difference between porous and non-porous. Porous toys have pores it them, similar to the pores in our skin. When they get wet, or are used, bacteria and viruses can be left on the toy. That is the reason we recommend using toy cleaners. They will:

  • – Remove bacteria, yeasts and viruses
  • – Rinse completely from the toy
  • – Help maintain a proper pH balance
