"So what exactly are these things I've been putting in my most precious of regions made of?" you ask. When it comes to partners these days, most of us (women especially) are meticulous about cleanliness and safety. I cringe when I see porn without condoms. Me? I may be a dirty girl - I'm known to wash my crotch several times a day in lew of a shower, but I always put condoms over my toys - even my silicone toys . I'm going to assume that you aren't versed in sex toy material safety a la the edenfantasys safety scale. I started my sex toy education in an adult retail brick and mortar a couple of years ago. Before that the only real toys I had owned were the simple hard plastic dial base kind of various sizes. One of the first things that they taught me was that silicone was better and that phalates (which apparantly 'used to be' in jelly toys ) were bad. It took me awhile to understand that 'silicon' without an e was not 'silicone' and even longer to get why some packages were not labeled at all. It wasn't until after I got laid off and begun reviewing for Edenfantasys that I learned the specifics about material safety. I thought that porosity was all that mattered and that it was all about avoiding the spread of STIs. Many many bladder infections later I finally clued in that bacteria was making its way from my anus into my vagina and infecting my urethra. Instantly all of those recurring yeast infections made sense as well.

I believe that not mentioned on that page, but still being offered is a special package directly from Dangerous Lilly herself for a personal consultation.
I apologise for this late post- I'm still struggling with tech stuff- teaching myself as I go but now I can sleep more soundly knowing I've contributed to this great cause- now onto parabens and glycerin.......
