For pleasure seekers that are allergic to latex, silicone sex toys are the new wave. Silicone is a high quality material that is rapidly revolutionizing the sex toy industry with their great definition and real-life detail. Because of the durability of the material, these sex toys are more expensive.
Silicone sex toys were developed in the 1980’s Today there is a great selection of silicone sex toys that are available in very soft to very hard styles. For the sex toy connoisseur, silicone is the ideal material for penetration and clitoral stimulation because of its comfortable feel.
These quality adult accessories are in great demand because they require very little maintenance and can last a lifetime. In fact, these sex toys are the easiest to clean: with an antiseptic solution for toys with moving parts or by boiling in water for 3-5 minutes for one-piece toys. It is extremely important to both clean and sterilize silicone sex toys to prevent transmitting infections.
Silicone is non-toxic and will not absorb bacteria, moisture or odors. In addition, people like the fact that silicone does not emit any odor at all, unlike latex sex toys that smell like rubber. Because of these features, the most experienced sex toy users will only purchase silicone sex toys. And if you are feeling inventive, you can even create your own silicone sex toys; with the materials easily to purchase, homemade sex toys or novelties made from silicone is a snap.
However, if you decide that these are the sex toys that you want to use, you must be careful to only use water-based lubricants. Although there is some disagreement about which lubricant is best to use with silicone sex toys, the general opinion is that the lubricants which contain silicone will bond to the device and ruin it.
