Plastics. In 1967, Dustin Hoffman was told in The Graduate that there was a great future in plastics. In 2014, however, plastics, specifically, phthalate, a chemical used to soften plastic, is under great debate as to how and if it should be regulated due to overwhelming evidence that it causes numerous health issues in adults.

Phthalates are used in everything from lotions, fragrances, lunch boxes, school supplies, adult toys, and dozens of other daily-use products. It has many people wondering - are adult toys safe? Phthalates are used to soften plastics to make them more malleable, and they are often used because they retain fragrance. Scientists have studied the effects of this toxin in rats, and found it to be linked to hormonal disruptions, cancers, and reproductive system damage.

A spokesperson from OiGoi.com talked about their adult toy safety guide, “The adult toy industry is not regulated. They are considered “novelty” items; much like children’s carnival toys. The difference, of course, is the level of exposure an adult toy has on the human body, allowing the toxins to leech through and disrupt a number of hormonal and organ systems, including damage to the kidneys and liver. Are intimate toys safe? Phthalate levels can reach between 24% and 51% in an intimate toy because they aren’t banned. Because they are banned in children’s toys, the level of phthalates is only allowed up to .1%.”

To stop this toxin from entering the body, OiGoi.com offers an adult toy safety guide that includes:

●    Is the adult toy soft or transparent? Chances are it contains high levels of phthalate
●    If the toy doesn’t list its materials, it likely contains high levels of phthalate
●    Spend a little bit more money for higher quality and less harmful toys
●    Choose Silicone despite its price tag. Silicone is hypoallergenic, durable, easy to clean, and free of toxins.
●    Choose Elastomer, it is latex and phthalate-free.

Purchasing intimate toys should be a fun experience, but it’s also wise to be conscious of the health risks faced when an inexpensive or phthalate product is used. There are a wide variety of alternatives available on the market because safety should always be the number one priority.
