Sex Toy Materials
Some of the most popular and common materials used on the manufacture of sex toys include silicone, jelly, cyberskin, plastic and glass. These popular erotic toy materials are described in detail, to make your toy buying experience more convenient and enjoyable.
Silicone is a latex-free, non-porous material. Similar to jelly, it has soft, elastic properties, but unlike jelly, it is odorless and does not leave a chemical residue. For sex toys, it is ideal because it transmits body heat and vibration very well. However, typically toys made of silicone are more expensive than those made of another common material like jelly. You get a tremendous bang for your buck, though. Intense stimulation, safe sex play, and easy clean up make for an awesome experience. For best use, silicone dildos and toys should be lubricated with water-based lubricants.
Jelly, a soft variety of rubber, is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is a popular material in sex toy manufacturing for several reasons: it is soft, translucent and easily produced. Users often remark on its sexy look and feel. Many models have a bright, glittery design that really looks great on your bedside table or going inside you. Unlike silicone, plastic or glass, jelly is highly porous, making it more difficult to disinfect properly. Also, there has been much controversy over toys produced with jelly rubber because of its phthalate content. Jelly rubber sex toys should only be lubricated with water-based lubricants. They may rank a little lower on the safety scale, but jelly toys offer a unique experience that, when used carefully, can really give you a tasty treat.
Cyberskin, also known as Ultraskin, Softskin, SoftTouch, Futuroti, is the latest trend in sex toy manufacturing. It is known by so many names, because so many manufacturers utilize this new advancement to provide you with a better sex toy experience. Cyberskin is a unique combination of latex and silicone, and the most lifelke material of all. Its soft touch, ability to transfer body heat, and elasticity are unmatched. Even better news: it is 100% phthalate-free. Disadvantages include its slightly porous nature and the fact that it contains latex, which only affects those with an allergic to latex. Cyberskin sex toys can only be lubricated with water-based lubricants. If you like to have the latest and best technology in your phone or your computer, why wouldn't you want it in the bedroom as well? Keep up with the trends and turn yourself on!
Plastic is a non-porous material that can easily be disinfected. However, its unnatural feel makes it undesirable for any sex toys, like realistic dildos, that are supposed to feel "realistic" or like real skin. Maybe you don't need a life-like experience. Leave that for the real thing. Why can't a vibrator, dildo, or any sex toy deliver its own unique feeling? This material can help you explore that idea. What hard shines, is in its ability to transmit strong vibrations without buffering it in any way, like other softer materials do. The full force of those powerful vibrations are focused right on the most sensitive areas. Did someone say "better than the real thing?". Plastic sex toys can be lubricated with all types of sex lubricants, making them ideal for play in the shower, bath or hot tub.
Glass and pyrex are other non-porous materials. Glass dildos are known for being entirely "green", no additives, no allergens, and no chemical residue are use in the manufacturing process of these toys. They are easy to clean and will last a long time if cared for properly. Among users, high-quality glass is enjoyed for its ability to transfer extreme temperatures for intense erotic pleasure, cold or hot. A few minutes in the freezer or in the microwave can really increase the versatility of that toy and introduce new sensations to your lovemaking. Plus, glass seems to bring out the creative side in manufacturers. Many toys made from this material are distinct works of art that look incredible and work just as well. Unfortunately, while it is very common to find glass dildos, it is not as common to find glass vibrators. Overall, glass is an excellent material, but its use typically depends on user preference as well as a user's budget, as high-quality glass toys are typically more expensive. Glass sex toys can be lubricated with all types of lubricants.
