#AskEden - Material Descriptions-Misleading!!!

MamaDivine MamaDivine
I just wanted to point out to staff a few things that I noticed about the material descriptions. When I was doing my review on the Silicone Finger bunny-The materials for this are "Plastic/Silicone". Plastic for the button and Silicone for the bunny cover. If you click on that material link, it will send you to the page of where it explains the material and what lubricants are OK to be used with said material.


I found that it said that water AND silicone based lubes were ok with this. Now, I understand that Silicone cannot be used with silicone toys-however some folks that do not frequent the site forums or know this information about the materials/lubes etc, may be mislead. Im not sure if the other descriptions are the same for other toys with this issue or not, because I cannot find one that lists two different materials such as this one, but just a heads up to staff or whoever writes the descriptions. Maybe add something to those that say something on silicone toys that "SILICONE LUBE MAY NOT BE USED WITH SILICONE TOYS" Something of a warning on those items? Just a thought.

In this case you have to understand that EF has to give material descriptions for all materials. With plastic you can use silicone lubes, so if you use just the bullet you will be alright. Used with the sleeve you can only use water based lubes. It can be confusing but that's what the reviews are for, to let folks know what can and can't be used.

I agree Tim. I understand that this is why others do reviews for those that are not very knowledgable on these types of issues. However, I think that we have to take into consideration for those that do not read the reviews. Folks that come to the site, just to cmoe to the site and browse or buy and leave again-those that don't participate like you and I-Those are the folks that I am worried about taking this information in the wrong direction.

I totally get where you're coming from though. I just felt that maybe something could be added to the description. Something like (if the toy has multiple materials or several pieces to it) maybe have it say under the lube useage part: Plastic-Water/Silicone Lube Silicone-Water Lube only.

Maybe that would help to clear up that issue? I know it would take a bit more effort on Eden's part but its only a few words and it could save some folks a lot of grief or from having to return a toy. You have to think, if they purchase a toy, misuse it due to the product description, then return it because it was ruined, they may think that products from Eden are not quality and Eden is out that money for having to replace the toy.

Though, I agree, everyone should read the reviews no matter what they are buying. Some folks just don't get as involved as us though. Those are the folks Im trying to help out lol. Thanks for your response though Tim!
