Silicone is a popular material for sex toys for a variety of reasons:
• Warms to body temperature and retains heat
Density varies from silicone toy to silicone toy. Some are soft, while others may be more rigid. But all are pliable and transfer vibrations in a very satisfactory and pleasurable way.
While many users must use silicone toys due to allergies, many other users simply prefer silicone due to its ability to carry sensual vibrations. Silicone toys are also very easy to clean. Silicone toys with removable bullets and those that are completely without a motor (such as a non-vibrating silicone dildo), can be disinfected by boiling them for 5-10 minutes or washed in the dishwasher. Silicone
toys with a built-in motor, such as the Monte Carlo, can be washed with Clean & Simple Adult Toy Cleanser or Passion Parties Adult Toy Cleanser.
Only water-based lubricants may be used with silicone toys, such as Ultra Glide or Revelation Lubricant. Never use a silicone-based lubricant, such as Slip ‘n Slide, with a silicone toy. It’s often the case that silicone toys are more expensive than other toys, but considering their durability, ease of use, clean and care, and their ability to transmit pleasurable vibrations, silicone toys are well worth the investment.
