Silicone Lube Silicone Toy?

Adonis Adonis
I'm planning on purchasing a silicone dildo and I was wondering if I can use a silicone lube (Eros Bodyglide) with it?

Do you know which dildo you are getting yet? You generally are not supposed to use silicone lube with silicone toys but, some people have used silicone lube with the higher quality 100% silicone dildos with no problems. I always use water based climax h2o or maximus just to be safe....

It REALLY depends. Pure silicone lube mixed with a pure silicone toy can cause the toy to become gummy and start to disintegrate. Do a spot test first- just take a dab of your silicone lube and rub it on the bottom of the toy.. if it starts to get gummy or flaky then it's not compatible. It really depends on the purity of the silicone, I have a TPR silicone toy that is compatible with a pure silicone lubricant.

Water based lube is the way to go, I'm afraid it doesn't have the same great properties of silicone but it extends the life of the toy.

Sleeping Dreamer has it down. I have tested most of my Tantus, Happy Valley, and Vixen Creations toys as well as a Jollies toy I just got and they don't seem to have a problem with my Toko silicone or System Jo Anal lubricants, but I just recently tested a VixSkin toy that does seem to react with silicone lubes. I am surprised that any of the TPR silicone toys are okay with silicone lube, but that opens up possibilities there as well.
If you do decide to test it, you should see an immediate interaction with the lube so it will get gummy very quickly. If you notice that, wash the remnants of the lube off with soap and water as quickly as possible to minimize damage to the toy.

I forgot to say that I have not tested silicone lube with a Tantus O2 product yet.

The way it's supposed to work, theoretically, is that higher-grade 'pure' silicone is more resilient to silicone lube. A product that just contains some silicone (like TPR) will likely react more and break down when in contact with silicone lube. I can see why Vixskin might react more (and why O2 might as well, Jimbo) since the consistency of it is different and somehow closer to the chemical consistency of silicone lube than standard hard silicone.

Easy way to find out- put a dot of silicone lube on the base of the dildo and see what happens. If it does get gummy, you haven't ruined the toy. If it doesn't, you're good to go.

I have successfully patch-tested Eros Bodyglide (a premium silicone lube) repeatedly on my Silicone Splash vibrator. Successfully meaning there was no intereaction at all. I am waiting 'til I feel reckless to douse the toy, one of my favorites, in the Eros to use it. But I imagine I will try.

So, one more bit of evidence that a very pure silicone lube may not harm a medical-grade silicone toy. But, test a small, out-of-the-way area first!!

I thought it was just the opposite....very pure, high-quality silicone lube and equally pure, high-quality silicone toys can be paired together. I've been reading everything I can find on the topic, since yesterday, and that seems to be the unanimous opinion. But, also, it is highly recommended to do the spot test before slathering an entire dildo!

Eros Bodyglide is one that has been consistently mentioned as a good silicone lube choice.

This past week, I found that several high-quality silicone lubes (including Eros) are totally compatible with my silicone Feeldoes.
