  1. please watch the “intro to sex toys” video by Megan Andelloux for vital information to consider when purchasing sex toys.

  2. i just realized that Megan’s videos aren’t free as this one is. all sex toys mentioned in this video are safe. my concern is that there are health and safety considerations that need to be addressed should you select a toy other than those mentioned in this video. i hope this info helps. here’s a pared down version of a comment i was working on before i found Megan’s videos.

    despite providing an overview of a variety of sex toys, i was disappointed that the health concerns of porous and phthalate-containing toys (typically the mid-lower end price range toys) was completely left out. the videos covered higher end non-porous sex toys which are the healthiest for your body. however not everyone has $60 to shell out for a silicon vibrator when they can get a jelly one for less than half the price.

    i think the videos should have covered the safety and cleaning concerns of using porous toys such as those made of jelly and rubber. porous toys should always be used with a condom, as they can hold onto bacteria and are especially dangerous if toys are shared or the same toy is used both vaginally and anally. jelly toys cannot be cleaned using soap or boiling water, as silicon and other non-porous toys should be cleaned. porous toys should be cleaned with alcohol. rubber toys are cheap, even more porous than jelly toys making them more difficult to clean and they wear out faster. porous toys should be individually wrapped for storage as the materials can interact and transfer from one toy to another.

    i wish there had been some discussion of rubber and jelly toys and the risks of the toxin–phthalate. while i believe phthalates are slowly being phased out of the production of sex toys, there are still well known brand name companies, such as doc johnson, that sell toys containing phthalates. any rubber or jelly toy that has an odor to it likely contains phthalates which are known to cause lots of problems, including endocrine disruptions. unless a toy is specifically identified as phthalate-free, it may well contains phthalates. toys made of glass, stainless steel, silicon, TPE, and hard plastic are all free of phthalates. if you own any toys with phthalates, you should ALWAYS use a condom with these toys.
