We have several TPR toys and have had no problems. The only material that have been a problem have been really smelly jelly formulas.

TPR/TPE is in general a good step up from jelly and other materials that are strongly suspected of not being too healthy. It's cheaper than silicone (substantially), and therefore probably does have a place. It would be better if companies were more forthright about what their particular TPR/TPE contained so people could avoid chemicals that they react to, but for now I don't know of anyone who does that.

On the minus side it's not silicone, glass or another absolutely safe material. It reacts with certain lubes and some other toys, it's hard to keep clean and sanitized (because it's porous), and something might be hiding in the proprietary formulas that will eventually bite in the way that phthalates did. Again on the plus side I think that manufacturers are starting to give more thought to safety, so they're probably more careful in what they put in the mix.

While I wish that silicones and other bodysafe materials were cheap enough to dominate the market, I realize that they aren't (especially for the large toys, where silicone can be 3-4 times as expensive), and TPR/TPE is better than jelly.

If I have to, I'd pick TPR, but for sure I'll pick it over any jellies/gel toys.

Yes - the jelly is always an issue!

It has no health hazards except being porous. I'm not sharing mine any time soon, anyway.

TPR is good, but I still have a preference for silicone.

It's okay, but I'd still rather use silicone.

I strongly prefer not to use porous toys if at all possible. If there's a silicone option, I'll pick it every time. I think my only TPR toy right now is my Eroscillator's attachments, but they don't come in silicone.

I believe the only TPR we have are the Eroscillator attachments, otherwise we stick with quality silicone from Vixskin or Tantus for example.

i love the feel of it. as long as you clean and store it properly, there should be no problems.

I was so hesitant to try TPR because of all the hoopla about porous toys. Well, I went ahead & tried one because the toy didn't come in silicone.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover I prefer it over some silicone ones for feel & because it doesn't cause any reactions in me, (I have had problems with some of the different formulas of silicone irritating me - yes, the high end, platinum silicone brands). I don't share my toys and I don't have cooties, so I think I'll be okay.

I've never tried TPR. There are so many great sex toys made of silicone, I see no point risking my health. This is why I am hesitant to try Eroscillator. You would think that for that price it would be made out of quality materials, but it is not .
