It’s important to think about what the sex toy is made of to avoid allergic responses, phthalates, and finding something that feels amazing for you.
Here’s a look at the different types of materials used to produce sex toys.
On our further information product page, you can usually find out what the product is composed of; some of these are referred to as the supplier’s material, such as UR3 or Cyberskin. These materials are highly guarded trade secrets, but they’ve been designed to feel as real as possible.
Plastic Sex Toys
ABS Plastic is a strong, sanitary plastic made from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). It’s commonly used to produce classic vibrators and vibrating bullets.
Plastic is known for providing excellent stimulation due to its ability to transfer vibrations effectively; it may also be utilised with any lubrication.
Smooth coated plastic has a velvety feel and is made of plastic that has been coated with polyurethane or smooth rubber.
Free of latex and phthalates.
Realistic Feel Sex Toys
This word refers to a variety of sex toys created from materials such Fanta Flesh, UR3, Cyberskin, Futurotic, and Sensafirm, which are used in our FleshLight collection.
They’re all constructed of an elastomer-based material that feels and looks as natural as possible, and they’ll even warm up to your body temperature.
Because these goods are porous, special care must be taken with them. After cleaning them, allow them to properly dry before using a revive powder or corn flour to keep them in good condition.
They should only be used with a lubricant that is water-based.
Silicone Sex Toys
Silicone is widely used in designer sex toys and realistic dildos due to its hypoallergenic and non-porous qualities.
Silicone is frequently utilised by luxury manufacturers such as Lelo since it is extremely long lasting, easy to clean, and feels great.
A word of caution: never use a silicone lubricant with silicone sex toys since it will damage the item. Instead, use a water-based lube.
Free of phthalates and latex.
Skin-Safe Rubber Sex Toys
This latex-free, phthalate-free substance is also non-porous, making it easy to clean.
TPE/TPR stands for thermoplastic elastomer/rubber in technical terms.
Skin-safe rubber is popular in bunny vibes because of its hardness, which provides the ideal level of stimulation for G-Spot orgasms while still being suitable with water-based lubricants.
