hmm okay. i'm pretty thoroughly confused. the site says rubber, the box says UR3, the doc johnson website doesn't say, the booklet says it's compatible with water and silicone lube (like rubber is) but UR3 is not compatible with silicone lube, and the booklet says to keep it away from other rubber toys. that's a lot of contradictions.
we're cornstarching it now, but it did not arrive dusted with anything. i'm going on the assumption that it's UR3 and treat it gently (better safe then killing a toy).
if it is rubber, the cornstarch won't hurt it, right?
we were sort of planning to stay away from cyberskin products just because they are so porous and have such high maintenance- is there a great difference in lifespan between rubber and UR3 products?
