Dildo Kits

According to chemists, the ’silicone rubber’ in your Dildo Kits (or any other silicone sex toy) is not technically considered a silicone, a rubber, OR a silicone rubber.

'Silicone Rubber' is a common lay-term for various polymeric organosilicon compounds.  These are carbon-hydrogen-oxygen compounds that also contain elemental silicon. In fact, the term silicone itself is actually a misnomer. The suffix ‘one' is used by chemists to denote a substance with a double-bonded atom of oxygen in its backbone. When first discovered, 'silicone' was believed to have oxygen atoms double bonded to each silicon atom, but this is not true!

'Silicone' can be defined as an inorganic polymer (contains many bonds), and is also technically incorrect, at least according to a chemist.  The technically correct term for the various silicone rubbers you see in sex toys is polysiloxanes or polydimethylsiloxanes.

'Rubber' is an entirely different molecule altogether. It's actually a carbon-based polymer that’s harvested from trees in the form of latex.  We'd never use latex to cast a penis.  Latex is prone to easy degradation and deformation.  Heat, oil, salts, metals, even air will degrade latex.

 Beware of some sex toys that claim to use 'Body safe silicone' but really use 'tin-cure silicone', which contains toxic elements and is NOT body safe. 

Always use a good quality lubricant with your sex toy and clean well before and after use.

After reveling in post-climax bliss, it's crucial to clean the device that sent you over the edge. Otherwise, you run the risk of getting a yeast or bacterial infection.

Caring for & Cleaning your Sex Toys:

Use a good toy cleaner and a damp cloth to wipe the toy cleaner. For a deeper clean, soak in warm water for eight to 10 minutes. ONCE YOUR TOY IS SQUEAKY-CLEAN dry it off completely with a clean paper towel and store it in a case or silk bag to protect it from other bacteria-laden items.
