Sex toy companies that don't manufacture their products in China?

DreamyLove DreamyLove
The only companies I know of that don't use Chinese manufacturers for their products are Vixen Creations, Fun Factory, Tantus and possibly Lelo. Am I missing any others?

I too would be really interested to know of any others. How about Bswish? or OhMiBod? Not sure about those.

I save all my product literature. Phallix toys are made in the US. So are the Doc Johnson Vinyl Vengeance, Moulin Rouge, Mr Softee and Raging Hard-on series. But their beaded penis sleeve is made in China. I seem to have quite a few of their products.

I was saddened to learn that NJOY products are made in China.

If I remember correctly. My Aslan products are made in Canada. & I believe my Outlaw harness is not made in China- but don't quote me.

Why does that sadden you?

I think people are a little leery of Chinese manufactured materials because of all the recent problems with stuff imported from China (excessive lead, etc.).

Maybe it's just because of my own affiliations, but I think that all the negative press about China in the previous year was just a LITTLE biased. After all, it was right before the Olympic games... interesting timing, no? My favorite part of all the China-phobia shenanigans was when I was invited as a guest artist to a local elementary school's Day with the Arts. My partner and I were doing a presentation on anime art and had a nice little spread of anime merchandise on the table.

One little girl pointed to a plastic Pokeball and said, "Where did you get that?"

It was my partner's, but I decided to be clever, so I picked it up and looked on the bottom. "Says here it's made in China," I said.

"I thought all the made in China stuff got recalled!" she wailed, recoiling as though this plastic Pokeball had the potential to poison her, her entire class, and her puppy.

I get that people are worried because of all the recent problems that you mentioned. Lead in the paint, melanin in baby formula, etc. And it's very normal to be wary of where your toys come from, especially when you're putting them in such an important place. However, please let's all be rational and not let this fear get overblown. NJoy toys may be made in China, but look at kind of material NJoy toys are made of: Stainless Steel. Not to mention the high caliber of company that NJoy is!

It's one thing to raise an eyebrow at a stinky jelly toy in a shoddy box that says "Made in China". It's another completely when it comes to high-end toys. China's a big country. You get bad apples with every barrel. Don't forget how terrible the packing industry in the U.S. was before Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" came out. It's smart to be safe, but don't go overboard.

Um. I would have been bummed if it said made in Korea, Russia, or any other country besides the US for that matter. I have no personal dilemma with China.

I was under the impression that njoy was a US based company based on Twitters I've read. I may be completely wrong here, as it doesn't say on their site where they are actually located.

I'm the daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter of union workers. It's practically embedded into my mind to automatically frown when I learn a product isn't US made.

Oh! I didn't mean to pile on China or anything! I own several njoy toys and plan to buy more. I do understand, though, people being cautious about regulation standards and checking on stuff like that. Better safe than sorry, right? It's not a problem that's specific to China (or pertains to everything made in China, even), but they did have some problems that got press and it's perfectly rational of people to be want to be cautious. I'm sorry if I sounded like I was hating on China!

Thanks for the clarification My family has only been in the U.S. in recent generations, and I have many friends who are first or second-generation Asians. It's been embedded in MY mind to automatically bristle when someone implies that just because something is not made in the U.S. (esp. China), it isn't a good product. The title of this thread seemed to imply that to me.

I don't want to start a fight I just wanted to state my opinion.

So has anyone run across companies that are primarily owned, operated and manufactured in China? What are the safety thoughts there?

Golden Triangle makes inexpensive but attractive toys. They list no product ingrediants. Obviously they have phthalates (sniffs a toy box). I like to know what my toys are made of, I like a product description, and I am willing to pay more for a product that is platinum silicone than something that could irritate my mucous membranes and give me liver cancer or fry my ovaries....

When I went to the Golden Triangle site my AVAST scanner picked up malware and I had to scan my computer. I have no problem with things made in any country as long as they list what's in them. I still buy canned food from China, and fish from China.

i really don't get the whole anti-China thing. Things made in China aren't any more dangerous than things made on any other country. If you want something made in a specific country to support their economy, that great for you. But China isn't dangerous

I've taught college level students who aspire to move south to Guangdong (I am at the moment in Canada, but usually more often than not live in China for the past ten years) to work in the factories where people say they are slave labourers. To them... they get basically free accommodations, three squares a day plus fruit and such for snacks, salary, possibility for advancements and in my students cases... a pension. And from what my students have told me, this is the norm. And depending on the company, possible children's education.

The things most people think of when they think of factory workers in China is still around in some parts, but for the most of it, the government is trying to get the country on a different track.

As for the companies that want to lessen their prices... it is not really the Chinese companies that should be in the spot light. It is those that declare that the researchers and chemists recommendations only affect a small number so it is ok. The companies who create these items for China to manufacture are the ones responsible for what goes into things.

Now on the other hand if we want to talk cement drivers in Canada who wanted a little extra time at the coffee shop just adding a little more water into their tanks causing lots of problems in safety when it came to using their loads.

When it comes to sex toys, I buy silicone from a reputable company and pay that price. When I buy jelly or anything that is not a safety rating of 8 or above, that is my choice. Doesn't matter where it is made, that is the choice I have made and the quality and safety of the toy is under question.

So yup. I cannot wait to get home to China, eat the food, use my Evolved Duo made in China, use the lube made in China, and wear the clothes I bought in America that are made in China.

L'grande sigho... I love China 97% of the time. I just wish they had strawberry rhubarb pie.

Kudos to you! It is interesting to learn about the modern China from someone who is not of Chinese descend! I was born in Hong Kong and I've never been to China. I'd love to visit provinces like Sichuan and Hunnan some day, devouring all those hot and spicy ethnic dishes! Who knows, I might even check out Shanghai, where all the hustle and bustle is!

I won't worry about adult toys that were produced in China. High-end reputable companies such as Njoy probably have lots of quality control people watching over the production lines.

Stay away from Sichuan!!!! If you really want some yummy foods??? Go to Hubei. They don't use as much prickely ash as Sichuan, but use more garlic and chilies giving you more of a bite and none of the wretched gut aches and then the blisters in your mouth. Not because of the spice, but because of the acidy reflux.

Shanghai is Western fun, very busy, I'd say go to Suzhou or Wuxi instead. Much prettier, less crowded and Suzhou is just visually fun... very old school Chinese. Liaoning is great as it has more of the Korean influence, and if you are ever in Inner Mongolia? Give me a shout!!!

Thank you for those useful info!

You're right, it's better to have Hubei rather than Sichuan cuisine, don't want to waste time sorting out the prickly ash seed from my food! My husband's not a big fan of those seeds neither, he hates it when I add prickly ash powder to my Beef/Chili or Ma Po Tofu dishes!

I'd love to visit Mongolia, we are big mutton fans! And we'll definitely give you a holler when that moment comes!

WOOT WOOT!!!!

I find that McCormicks Ma Pao Dofu seasonings work wonders at adding just the right amount of seasonings. Through in some garlic and voila! Yummyness!!!

And darn tootin you should! I love playing travel guide!!!!!!
