The risks are low but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take precaution when using your sex toys. Here are a few tips to keep you from harms way.
Fresh batteries are always a great idea. Use them when they are needed Don’t wait
With hard surface toys made from rigid materials like glass and metals make sure to inspect it closely to ensure no cracks or abrasions are apparent
Make sure to look for discolouration’s This usually means a certain area of the toy is becoming weak or worn and caution should be taken.
If you own a toy that is able to change its shape through stretching etc. be sure not to overdo it when disfiguring. This may cause it to lose its shape and rigidity completely.
Make sure lubricant are selected carefully. Water based lubricants are good with any toy. Oil based lubricants should not be used with a sex toy that will be used vaginally, or anything that used with rubbers or latex.
Condoms are always the best idea for toys that are going to be used with more than one user at a time and especially when used anally and vaginally also. It also stops wear on the toy.
It goes without saying a thorough clean once done
Be sure to remove any battery operated toys batteries so corrosion doesn’t take place when not in use.
