If you have ever been inside any adult novelty store in search of a new toy for you or your partner, you’ve probably be surprise at just how big the selection of adult toys really is. At the store, you can find anything from a $30 lower quality jelly vibrator, to a stainless steel dildo that could be passed down generation to generation (we do not suggesting doing this, however…). But, other than the price tag, what makes these higher end toys better than other toys? Let me begin with this: Silicone, glass and metal are no doubt the very safest and most durable material of any toy in the market today. Each are nonporous (which means no harboring of any nasty bacteria!), hypoallergenic, odorless and contain NO phthalates (which unfortunately can’t be said about our bright and flashy jelly dicks). Not convinced yet? Keep reading!
Right this very second, silicone vibes and dildos are the most adorned toys worldwide. These toys are often more life-like in the way they feel (being the softest safe material out there), and sometimes even in the way they look. Some even have balls and veins! These toys are soft, yet firm similar to that of a real penis. Because these toys are nonporous, they can be used vaginally and anally (although a quick rinse with toy cleaner and/or a condom in between uses is always recommended). These toys also warm up to your body which only enhances the life-like experience. Clean-up is made easy with any toy cleaner, OR you can go ahead and drop it in boiling water for three minutes, and voila!
Companies like Fun Factory and Lelo specialize in 100% medical grade silicone vibrators, and get this… these toys are also rechargeable (making them 100% waterproof)! The only drawback to these fabulous “toyfriends” is that they can only be used with a water-based lube, but no worries, the girls at Blue Boutique know which ones are good and safe for your new favorite toy!
And in case you were wondering, I did just say that glass is on my list of safe and durable materials for any of your toy needs. Contrary to popular belief, these toys will not break inside you, we promise! These toys are made by a master glass craftsman with pyrex glass (like cookware!) which inherently makes it shatter proof! Does that make you feel better? No, what about this: because glass dildos are hard, heavy and inflexible they’re amazing for finding and stimulating your g-spot (or p-spot!). These toys are also very smooth, and are great for temperature play. Pop it in the fridge to cool things off, or run it under warm water to heat things up; either way, be sure to first do a temp test! Keep in mind, however, drastic changes in temperature can crack it thus making it pours… so be careful! Oh, and before I forget, glass is also dishwasher safe, can be used with either silicone or water-based lube and these toys will last forever (“til death do us part”, right?). Come check out all of our glass toys and add something beautiful to your own collection.
Last but not least, metal. Did you even know you could purchase a chrome, titanium, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, silver, or even a gold dildo, or perhaps butt plug? Of course you can! Similar to glass, these toys are optimal for g or p-spot stimulation because they’re hard and heavy. Unlike glass, they will never crack or be damaged by extreme temperature changes (but again… please do a temp. test!). To clean these babies, they can either be boiled, or thrown in the dishwasher, although definitely make sure you’re drying them afterward. We wouldn’t want our favorite toy to be rusting away without of even realizing it! Be sure to store your metal toys away from glass and other metal toys to avoid chips and rust. Metal is the most durable of toys, as well as the most luxurious!
I’m almost positive you have heard the term ‘you get what you pay for’? Well, I don’t believe there is a more accurate market than this to really understand what that means. The next time you walk in to Blue Boutique in search of your perfect vibe, plug, prostate massager, dildo… think about this: You should get something you love and can trust. Although glass, silicone and metal toys are going to be a little bit pricier, it’s always worth knowing and having that security that your toy is safe for your body and is going to last forever (well, near forever). If you don’t remember anything from what I’ve said so far…. remember this: no matter who you are, when it comes to sex toys, we believe you deserve the very best!
