The issue with them is that while yes, you -can- clean it, you will never be able to clean it -thoroughly-. Because it's porous, it will soak up anything and everything it can, which can still be there even after cleaning. This can then lead to bacteria proliferating on the toy, which would then go into your body. Always using a condom with a jelly toy creates a barrier to prevent any transference of bacterium, whether you share it or not.

Also, most jelly toys are made under some pretty shady situations. You don't know exactly what chemicals and such went into making it and what leeches out of it in use.

There's also the issue that many people out there are even allergic to jelly toys, causing them burns. Think of it like chopping up a bunch of chiles with your bare hands, then touching yourself. It's not fun.

In addition to all that, jelly toys simply are not made to last. Their materials are not substantial enough to really be used longer than about six months. They degrade really quickly.

Things like pure silicone, yes, they cost a whole lot more, but they are made to last a lifetime, as long as you treat them well. They are completely non-porous, so they won't absorb anything at all. You can sterilise them so they -can- be shared without the use of condoms, if you want to share.

You can get a jelly toy for, what, ten to twenty dollars? It's a nicer price tag compared to a fifty dollar silicone dildo, but the silicone dildo, which would be a one-time investment, would last you many, many years. The jelly toy would need to be replaced every six months at most, which, if you initially spent fifteen dollars, would be thirty dollars a year; sixty dollars in two years. So, for two years' worth of toys, only, you'd be spending the same amount for a toy that should last you your whole life, provided no accidents come to it.

I would not stick anything that smells that bad inside my body, even with a condom over it.

They contain phthalates, which are bad for you. I've experienced chemical burns in my vagina from using a jelly toy.

I've never personally experienced any ill effects from using jelly toys, but since they're porous and can harbor bacteria they're not my first choice when a better material is available.

I did a poll a while back regarding people's attitudes about jelly toys, and it had some interesting results. You may want to check it out.

Well, yes they are bad, but the decision is ultimately yours. I've used them and used to use only jelly. I found most affordable materials to be incredibly painful, so jelly was my only material for years. So it's up to you to decide. The phthalates are the worst because they are harmful chemicals.

Now, if you just like the jelly feel, then you could try something a tad healthier but similar in feel -- TPR. Some TPR feels very jelly-like. Evolved's toys (Flutter, Sugar, etc) is TPR that feels jelly-like, but a tad firmer and less floppy.

You're right about that -- using in moderation isn't going to kill you. Sounds like you know how to use with caution, and adding a condom to a jelly toy will do you lotsa good! So you can manage with jelly, but it's not something I'd use for the long-term. I'd use with the cautions you already mentioned, and of course, maybe a phthalates-free jelly toy. Do they even make those? I don't know, but it's possible!

This is what makes Jelly toys bad in my opinion. As materials used for sex toys aren't regulated, you don't know exactly these phthalates are. There are some phthalates that are okay when exposed to the body, but there are others that aren't. As this industry isn't regulated, you can be putting something harmful inside of your vagina. When the toy starts to ooze it's slime and you continue to use it...you are exposing your body to whatever toxins are oozing from that jelly. Not to mention the chemical burns that can happen like Girly Juice mentioned. I too had this happen to me and I know we aren't the only ones. If you want to read about the health stuff on phthalates here you go. I'll quote some of it....


"Phthalates are endocrine disruptors linked to problems of the reproductive system, including decreased sperm motility and concentration in men and genital abnormalities in baby boys. (Oh, and did you know that average sperm counts have decreased significantly since the 1940's?) More recently they've also been linked to asthma and allergies."

We used them for a while but developed an allergy that caused a severe burning sensation when used. For a while we resorted to condoms - but the cost and hassle was too much. We threw them all out and stay with silicone, glass and SS.

I do not trust jelly dildos. I feel like i am better off to save my money and invest in silicone or glass or metal. Something completely non porous.

Phthalate free Jelly toys are impossible. Phthalates are what is used to soften the plastic. In order to have a Jelly, you have phthalates.

Lucky for me, I prefer firmer materials so I wouldn't choose jelly anyways. I'd rather save my money and buy a long-lasting toy. Silicone and glass can last SOOOO much longer than jelly when they are properly cared for.

Is it really all that bad to put something toxic inside your body, something that may hurt you? That's subjective. Is it really all that bad to smoke cigarettes?
