As a friend of mine, I’m sure you’re aware of the risks associated with using sex toys. We live in a day and age where sexual health and safety are so important, yet most of us are unaware of what germs can be on sex toys. So, I thought it was time to talk about it.

First of all, let me tell you that a lot of us are under the false impression that if it is an unused toy, then it must be completely clean. No germs, bacteria or fungi at all, right? Wrong. Even unused sex toys can often be harboring some nasty critters.

Many of the toys are made from a variety of materials that can leach toxins or residue onto the toy. This residue can be full of bacteria and other harmful organisms. Additionally, many of the sex toys are porous, meaning they have small holes or crevices where bacteria and other organisms can hide.

Even some of the toys that are considered completely safe and hygienic can still carry some germs. For instance, many vibrating sex toys work using a motor and some of these motors can produce heat which may encourage the growth of harmful bacteria on the toy.

It is essential to properly care and clean your sex toys to keep the germs at bay. Some people recommend that you use an antibacterial cleaning solution specifically designed for sex toys. However, if that is not an option, you can use mild soapy water and a soft cloth to clean the toy and ensure that all the germ-filled crevices are nicely scrubbed and dried.

It is also important to be mindful of sharing toys. It may seem like a good idea to keep that vibrating dildo spanky-clean and pass it around, but don’t forget to disinfect it before and dildos after each use.

It’s also wise to invest in some good quality sex toys, as many of the cheaper ones are often made with lower grade materials and sex toys their surfaces can be rougher, creating more crevices which are perfect hideouts for germs.

Having said all of this, when I need to kick some germs to the curb, I often turn to organic lubricants. Organic lube helps to create a smooth and silky surface, which makes it harder for the germs to find a place to hide. Plus, organic lube is free from any chemicals and hormones which are often found in their non-organic counterparts.

It’s also important to choose sex toys that are non-toxic and endocrine-disrupting-chemical free. Many of these chemicals can increase the risk of skin irritation and infections, so be sure to read the label carefully.

It’s not always easy to tell which toys are free from germs, so it’s important to take the time to research and read reviews. Don’t be afraid to shop around if a brand makes you feel uneasy – there are plenty of shops that specialize in toxin-free sex toys.

If you’re new to the world of sex toys then you might find it helpful to join a forum or community where you can chat to a few experienced users and get advice. That way, you can avoid some of the nasty germs that tend to lurk in our sex toy closets!

It’s also super important to make sure to inspect your toys before use, checking for any cracks or damage that could be harboring germs. If you do spot any, it’s best to throw it away and invest in a new one.

It’s not all doom and gloom when it comes to germs and sex toys. Although some of them do harbor those nasty critters, as long as you do your research and properly clean and handle your toys, you can be sure that any germs won’t be getting the better of you and your pleasure-object!Waterproof Mute Powerful Mini G Spot Vibrators Small Bullet Clitoral Stimulation Vibrating Sex ...
