Is it possible to get splinters from wooden sex toys?

Sera Sera
I personally don't buy wooden dildos because I worry about the splinters. Is it possible to get them? Are you sure these are safe, if you know they are? Has anyone ever had this happen?

They, like glass and ceramic, are completely safe unless you break them.

Both Nobessence and Hans Hardwood have coatings on them that are safe for the body and keep them from being rough in any way - they are amazingly smooth, actually, frictionless and wondeful.

And the most important part - they're made from high-quality hardwoods, which are completely different from the splintery junk you see at the local Home Depot or similar. After forming they're sanded absolutely smooth and inspected. Unless you break/gouge them or do something else bad you're fine.

Hmmm...Okay then. I still worry about it, though. But I feel more secure now. Thanks!

Does the coating on the timber toys ever wear down over time with usage?

Yeah, Shellz31. I was quietly thinking the same thing in my head. I don't know why I didn't say it. That's a good point, there.

I have had the same concerns. They felt silly to say.

I've actually always secretly wondered this too. I felt like an idiot for not knowing. Thanks!

Nope, they are sanded to a glossy finish and then coated with polyurethane or similar products to both protect the wood and you. They are seriously hard to break as well so it's not really a concern.

It might after a few decades but by then the wood itself would be smooth...like the handrail on a staircase. Wood has some amazing properties that make wooden toys a joy to own.

Termites like fresh green wood not coated wood. The wood in your walls and underflooring is great food but coated older wood is yucky. Hardwoods are also more resistant to termites...besides you have a reasonably clean house so that won't be an issue because your toys are put away when you are done playing.

I don't have any wood toys, my issue has never been about splinters, roughness or breaking the wooden toy but the cleaning issue. I love silicone, galas and metal and those w/o vibes I use hot water, soap and sterilize by boiling as needed.
My feeling has been that hot water might wreck wooden toys; similar to putting a wooden cutting board in a dishwasher which I did and destroyed it.

I agree with Carrie Ann.

If you treat them wrong and remove the coating in some way, then yea it would be possible. But as is....no you won't get splinters.

Nobessence wood toys are made to withstand hours of wetness at a time and can be bleached.

Haha, and don't put sand paper up your vagina to smooth out the toy.

Also, Hardwood Dildos says that if the finish on their toys ever wears off you can send it to them and they'll refinish it. They'll also fix it if it is damaged. But I haven't noticed any wear or loss of shine on mine. I love them dearly and use them often. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

That's got to be an interesting job to explain. "I refinish sex toys for people..."

Many of the toys I've looked at use some form of penetrating finish, so it isn't just on the surface. This makes it much harder to damage the finish.

LOL - not a job I'd really want! But good to know they recoat them or fix them if damaged.

I know that wooden toys are made to be completely safe, but like all things... yes, all things, they will display wear over time. For that reason, I would think twice.

Wow! That is awesome. I wonder how many have actually been sent back for refinishing.

I doubt it, provided that the wood is properly finished. Maybe if you intentionally broke it...but I'd hope that sex toy manufacturers would anticipate any troubles such as these and design their products accordingly to keep consumers safe. That'd be one hell of a lawsuit.
