Have you ever had a silicone toy react adversely to contact with silicone lubricant?

Suisei Suisei
Hello.
As suggested by the title, I am curious as to whether the people of Eden have experienced the sad event of silicone toys deteriorating when they come into contact with silicone lubricant. This can be full-toy damage or a positive patch test.

Personally, I love silicone lube; unlike many water-based lubes, it doesn't cause me any irritation or pain, and it simply feels and endures so much better in my opinion. Unfortunately, I also love silicone toys. For a long time, I've had to refrain from using silicone lubricant with my silicone items because I didn't want to ruin the integrity of the toy. However, the lubes I buy tend to be from reputable brands, and my silicone toys are from reputable companies (Tantus and Fun Factory in my case).

The patch test has always been negative for any signs of reaction, but I was still afraid to try slathering any of my favourites with silicone lubricant. I've read the Lube Compatibility Workshop conducted by ToyTimeTim a while ago, and the results surprised me... In a good way.

I decided to bite the bullet and try combining my favourite lube and my favourite toy material... To no adverse effect!

Please feel free to share your experiences regarding silicone compatibility. I am beginning to wonder if deterioration truly is dependent on the quality and purity of the lube and toy, so any information is helpful. Voting is private.

Thank you!

I had a toy destroyed from silicone lube. However, it was a long time ago and the silicone the toy was made of was not the highest quality. I've used silicone hybrid lubes with my high quality silicone toys with no problems.

I used one with silicone lube and it was OK afterwards. We grabbed that lube by mistake!

I'd think I'd just die if I paid money to get a nice silicone toy and then I ruined it...

We're told to not use silicone lube with silicone toys so I would never use it, ever. Plus I wouldn't want silicone lube inside me.

No matter how reputable the brand is, isn't it supposed to be simply a matter of chemistry not to mix the two? I've heard all sorts of horror stories about the damage caused to silicone toys by silicone lube. I just wouldn't want to even chance it.

I've done patch tests and all sorts and so far there's been no reactions.

Some years ago I'd stored several silicone toys in the same box and they melted together. Even though I still store toys resting one against the other I haven't seen that occur again. Maybe the silicone material has been improved.

A few years ago I used to use Jo's silicone lube with a silicone toy and it never messed it up. That's before I ever knew any different. I avoid it now just in case.

No, I stick to water based lubes. I'm too scared to use silicone lube with my silicone.

I don't like using silicone lubes outside of the bathroom, so I don't bust out that bottle very often. But I keep it off my silicone toys, just in case. I have some sample discs of platinum cure silicone that I can test on if I need to without risking my expensive toys.

I have seen the photographic aftermath of a sample disc of platinum cure silicone/WET Platinum mash-up...the lube left a large blister on the silicone.

I also heard about how Pjur tested their silicone lube against We-Vibe's silicone by dropping a We-Vibe 3 into a bucket of their lube for three months, and the toy came out okay. Of course, not-so-bright sex toy party peddlers have taken that to mean that ANY silicone lube is safe with the We-Vibe products...technically , high quality silicone rubber and high quality silicone lube should be fine together. But you'd better test each and every pairing to make sure. I had one customer try to convince me that she was allergic to silicone toys, because she had a nasty burning reaction from using a silicone lube on a silicone toy. Ouchies.
