Silicone lubricants and silicone-made toys

Kathryn Kathryn
I know that silicone toys can not be used with silicone lubricants, but most recently I've heard that Tantus toys are an exception. Is that true?

I've also heard about it. Tantus uses high-quality silicone that IN GENERAL is compatible with high-quality silicone lube. But I never tried to do that...kinda afraid...

That's a tricky one... From Tantus' site:
"Eros Pjur and Tantus Silicone have each conducted of experiments on this problem. We've never had any incompatibility with the other's products, but that hasn't always been the case with other silicone toys or of other silicone lubes."

The basic idea is that high quality silicone, in lube and toy form, will not necessarily bond. But it's a gamble, and some kind of silicone lube with some kind of silicone toys will definitely bond. I wouldn't risk it, personally.

There have a been a few companies that have said that their silicone is SO pure, and SO high quality, that it isn't an issue. However, high quality silicone toys (vixen, tantus, happy valley, down under, etc), are a little more pricey, and to be honest, do you really want to risk messing up one of your nice toys because of silicone lube?

I've found that Pjur Aqua (same company as Eros Bodyglide) feels very similar to silicone lube; I'd recommend giving it a try.

Tantus' site also suggests that if you want to give it a shot, test a part of the toy that you don't come in contact with so if causes a problem you don't ruin the toy. Put a drop of lube on the base and see if it gums up. If it stays slick, you are good to go

I've had really good luck with hybrids (such as synergy) and silicone toys, with no damage yet!
