Guide To Sex Toy Materials

At My Secret Luxury, an online store we recommend, they only sell luxury sex toys made out of the best materials available. However, there are so many different types of sex toy materials that you should be aware of.

100% Silicone*

  • Made form the highest grade of polymers and is medical-grade (How can you tell? Boil a non-motorized silicone toy for 3 minutes. If the toy is NOT 100% silcone, it will melt, dissolve or discolor.)
  • Pliable, durable material that does not contain phthalates
  • Non-porous and hypoallergenic
  • Retains heat
  • Easy to clean with soap & water or sex toy cleaner and can be sterilized in boiling water or top rack of dishwasher
  • Only use water-based lubricants

*A toy only has to be 100% silicone to say silicone on the label

Glass – Borosilicate/Pyrex Glass
