Who has a jelly sex toy? I have one. It since went in the bin. There are 2 major issues with jelly.
The first problem with jelly is, well, it’s jelly! So lets take this literally. If you got a bowl full of jelly, and accidentally dropped it on the floor, what would happen? It would get covered in dirt, hair, dust, bacteria and so on. The same with the vibrator, it’s filthy. So why not just clean it? Well you can, but it’s porous. The bacteria and germs get everywhere and it’s very hard to clean properly, just as it would be to try and wash off jelly.
The second problem is that it may contain phthalates. It is suggested that you use a condom on your jelly toys, as they may contain phthalates, but what’s the fun in that? If you’re staring at that word thinking what on earth are they?! I’ll tell you. It’s pronounced ‘Tha-layts’ and they are esters of phthalic acid which are used to increase the jellys flexibility, durability and transparency. There are loads of health risks to it though, including breast cancer and infertility. Even though most companies have got rid of phthalates and jelly products should be safe you have to be super careful and make sure you buy from a company you trust. Always avoid jelly toys that don’t state their ingredients.
Jelly sex toys can be an inexpensive option but you get what you pay for. If you do have them or use them, use a condom to protect yourself. Personally I hate using condoms with sex toys so don’t use jelly toys. There are so many options out there I don’t see the point in putting yourself at risk and not enjoying the event as much because I have to put a condom over a sex toy!
