Thanks to sex toys, you can now bring passion in the bedroom to the next level. But one of the main problems with sex toys is that they’re widely used. But with sex and anything to do with it being regarded as “taboo topics” in our culture are not widely discussed. More so, the sex toy business is entirely unregulated.
Sex toys are not regulated by the government and 20 manufacturers can really make the toys out of whatever material they want to, regardless of quality or safety, and label them however they please. Some of these toys contained phthalates, a family of plastic softening components that are prohibited in children and pet toys due to being lined to all sorts of medical problems from irritation and infections to cancer, reproductive issues, and organ failure.
Some of the most common toxic substances found in cheap sex toys are PVC and soft jelly plastic. Some toys are also highly porous on which the surface is covered in lots of microscopic holes, making it prone to bacteria, viruses and fungi. Because these materials cannot be fully cleaned and sterilized, every time one of them comes in contact, you’re opening yourself up to all sorts of possible infections.
