如何選擇及清潔你的性玩具？(下有中文版) Your Guide to Safely Choosing and Cleaning your Sex Toys I Sex toys are a common and exciting way to spice up any sex life! There are a wide variety of toys to choose from that can be used by yourself or with a partner, ranging from whips and chains to vibrators. They come in every imaginable shape, size, color and texture to bring a new level of pleasure to the users.

When avoiding these PVC toys, it is also important to make sure that it is easy to sanitize the toys. Porous toys that cannot be cleaned can easily spread STIs, including herpes, HIV, and bacterial vaginosis (especially among women using toys with other women). Fortunately, there are easy ways to avoid these problems! When buying your toys AVOID the following, 1. Toys that have a strong chemical smell. 2. "Jelly" toys. These toys will feel gel-like and will usually be very flexible. 3. Clear dildos that are not made of glass.
