Different Fashions of Adult Toys and How to Use Them
Sex is fun. Sex is a sin. Go ahead, stick it in.
We’ve likely all heard a poem like the above at some time during grade school. All-out sexual intercourse, foreplay, and masturbation are all very fun, hitting all the right spots in our brains to release dopamine and other feel-good chemicals that make us feel, well, good.
Below is a brief guide to some of the modern market’s most popular adult toys, what they’re used for, and their identifying characteristics.
What materials are adult toys constructed from?
Simply put, several handfuls’ worth of materials. Some of the most popular include glass, silicone, rubber, latex, wood, and glass, although this list is far from comprehensive. The most important thing to know about adult toys is whether they’re susceptible to absorbing external substances, chemicals, and materials, or not.
JouJou Sex Toys are those that rarely absorb body fluids, easter, and other substances. These impermeable toys are easier to clean than their porous counterparts, and are also less likely to absorb sexually transmitted disease.
Porous adult toys are those like jelly rubber or Cyberskin. Again, while not a complete list of these important-to-know styles, every porous toy should be cleaned far more carefully than others. Don’t let them absorb water when washing them, stay away from cleaning them with rough materials, and refrain from using them without condoms if at all possible.
Are any types of adult toys unsafe
Believe it or not – even though they’re just sex toys – some types are entirely unsafe. Latex is often safe, although it has several integral flaws. Some people have latex allergies, causing areas that come into contact with latex adult toys to experience bodily reactions caused by histamines. The material is also highly absorptive, leading to a higher probability of catching an infection from using an improperly-cleaned toy. It can also absorb normal bodily excrements, building up mold, mildew, and other nasty things you probably wouldn’t want in your body.
Jelly rubber used to be the most popular material to produce adult toys. However, it’s recently been suggested to cause cancer in those who come into contact with jelly rubber’s primary intoxicant, called phthalates.
Butt plugs are intended to be left in the anal cavity for long periods of time, although no longer than one full day. Even then, only the most experienced of aficionados should use butt plugs sparingly.
Dildos are shaped like penises, largely replicating the feel of a man’s member, although many are longer than the average penis.
Vibrators, a common choice, contain off-centered weights. When spun, Joujou Vibrators stimulate whatever they come in contact with, most commonly the female clitoris.
