We used to use jelly toys when we were first starting with toys, but they are so hard to clean it never felt great for my wife.

I've never used Jelly anything. I've done my own research and read a lot about its awful effects on this forum - that's enough proof for me to stay away from Jelly material.

Learned the hard way about the material, then did my research. After that, I threw the toys away and never bought jelly again.

I heard horror stories about the stuff, and I'm very prone to infections down there...I really don't need something that's supposed to pleasure me to hurt me.

My first dildo was jelly, but that's it.

I'm just too chemical-sensitive to risk it.

I use jelly toys and don't have any problems with them.

I had one jelly toy, and never used it because (at the time) there was no way I could fit it. It was also pretty gross because it felt all greasy and was unpleasant to pick up. Later, after hanging around on Eden for a bit, I learned about phthalates (which caused the greasiness) and decided I'd dodged a bullet by not using it.

We still use jelly cock rings sometimes but I won't use jelly toys internally. I never liked the feel or the chemical smell of them, and then when we started learning about all the potential evils of jelly I flat-out didn't trust them. I *have* used a couple with condoms on them just to do reviews in the past, but I'm not even willing to do that now. There are enough safe and nice-feeling toys out there to choose from that I don't think the bother is worth it.

I used jelly toys in the past. Even though I never had a bad reaction personally, all my jelly toys broke extremely quickly. I got really tired of needing to replace them so frequently, so I started looking at other more expensive toys. When I learned that they were a different material, I did a bit of research and found out more about the materials - then I was sure switching to better quality toys was a good idea!

(If I get something jelly or PVC assigned to me, I'll use it with a condom.)

Jelly is too rigid for me.

Other negative opinions on here formed my opinion on Jelly Toys, but I don't like the sticky feel either... so I don't use them.

When I first came to EF I played with jelly toys...but I hated the smell. Plus, I learned how safe other toys were so I stopped using jelly toys.

I've never used a jelly toy. Since being on EF, I saw that it has a low safety material rating. They just aren't quality toys in my opinion.

After trying a jelly toy for the first time that felt kinda oily and gross and had a terrible smell, plus just reading about jelly here on EF really changed my mind!

I've never used them but they smell kind of weird, and I did some research on the chemicals in them. They're just too scary for me to feel comfortable and have fun with.

I don't think I would like the feeling of a jelly toy, plus I've read about them on Eden. Not impressed with jelly I should say.

All the jelly toys are gone - we get a bad burning sensation when we used them.

I hear terrible things about them and heard they can burn you or something.

Just don't like the material and try to stay near the top of the safety ratings.

Same for me. Just the thought of the chemicals in it makes me want to puke.

I had two before I read up about them here and tossed them. I got a pocket rocket that had jelly attachments and it gave me a reaction so it is now gone and I'm never going to get another jelly toy.

I prefer not to use jelly toys. But some of my favorite evolved toys are jelly, so occasionally i'll make an exception

I had a reaction to them the first time I used one. Same for PVC.

I used to use Jelly toys, but I've never had a reaction. I feel it's better to be safe than sorry though, so I stopped using them. I've never known anyone to have a reaction to them. I did do research however, on their chemical compounds.
