How To Avoid a Toxic Relationship ... With Your Dildo  

Sex toys. So much fun, right? Well, not always. In the name of cheap, colorful and/or "realistic" toys, many manufacturers use chemicals that can be irritating to the body - or worse.

So, what’s a consumer to do? Well, I have become something of a sex toy materials snob and, in the name of safety, I’d like you to be one too. I have put together a list of the best, safest sex toy materials on the market - and the ones you need to avoid.
