I can't stand jelly, rubber, sensafirm, pleasureskin and sil-a-gel cause they all stink and some have phthalates.

What she said. ^^ Except, sil-a-gel has no odor; it's the UR3 that stinks.

Of the material I've tried, jelly was the worst. The smell wasn't so bad (though I'd certainly prefer my toys to be odorless if possible), and I can live with lint collectors, but the way it felt was just gross. It felt greasy and sticky, and the feeling stayed on my hands until I rinsed them!

Jelly. Every jelly toy I had was sticky, and the material started to break down over time.

I am gonna have to agree on the jelly, here! Picks everything up and I get tired of having to clean it so constantly!

Sil-a-Gel. Smells terrible. I only like silicone, in all honesty, but I wish that I could handle the scent of other materials because they are cheaper. It's not so much the bacteria, because I'm fine with using a condom, it's more of the smell. Just cannot deal with it.

Sil-a-Gel does have an odor. I literally have had to throw mine out because it made my entire room smell. UR3 and Sil-a-Gel are two different things, but UR3 is terrible too.

I'm pretty open to material types, but my only pet peeve is anything that smells or leaves a weird feeling on my hands. If the material doesn't do that, I'm open to it.

Anything strongly scented. I have asthma, and any strong smells mean that instead of an orgasm I'll be having to hit my inhaler.

Yeah, I can't think of any particular material I *hate* but I'm with Kayla... smelly materials are disgusting (especially for someone with mild OCD -- when I start thinking about *why* it smells, even if it's only the chemical makeup or something, it bugs me out). I can't recall any toy in particular leaving a bad feeling on my hands but that would most definitely gross me the eff out. Also, anything that gets anything and everything stuck to it in a rapid amount of time then is a pain to wash is not my fave, by a long shot.

So the discussion on the forum involving one of the top manufacturers about sil-a-gel was a lie? I'll see if I can find it, but I know it's almost a year old. In fact, I think you were the one who asked the question in the first place. LOL

It was specifically stated more than once that sil-a-gel has no odor and at worst a very slight odor and that it is the UR3 itself that stinks so badly.

I am the one who started the thread.

No, UR3 is not a component of Sil-a-Gel. PVC is. Here is the thread: link

Either way, Sil-a-Gel is the thing with the scent, regardless of what component of it is the source of the smell. The source doesn't matter, the fact is that the material does.

I don't get why you're saying this. Two representatives from Doc Johnson and Laurel from EF provided information to the contrary. I did not say that UR3 is a component of Sil-a-gel, I said that sil-a-gel is a component of UR3 and I should clarify---for Doc Johnson products.

Rubber stinks. PVC stinks. Sil-a-gel does not. Rebecca Weinberg (Doc Johnson): We appreciate all of the feedback on Sil-a-Gel. To clarify, Sil-a-Gel is an antibacterial additive that can be added to any material (Silicone, PVC, TPR, TPE, etc.) Sil-a-Gel itself is odorless, hence the Sil-a-Gel box on the packaging that states (All new Sil-a-Gel formula, Anti-bacterial non-toxic formula, latex-free, cadmium free, odorless). We understand that the statements on the package about Sil-a-gel may have been mistaken as a description of the actual product as whole. We are now in the process of revising the Sil-a-Gel box to remove the word "odorless" on our PVC items. Yes, PVC by nature has an odor. Letting the item air out does make the odor a little less intense. Unfortunatly, the odor cannot be washed off or soaked out. For odorless toys, Silicone, glass or hard plastic is your best bet. TPR and TPE toys also can be found that have a mild scent to odorless. Hope this helps

It seems that the removal of "odorless" is because they're tired of explaining the PVC/rubber material is what stinks. Not the sil-a-gel.

I can't stand toy materials that smell or sweat. If it leaves my hands greasy, it's gross. So jelly and Sil-A-Gel are out for me. I'm not too sure about UR3. Only two materials have made me outright gag: UR5 and whatever jelly mixture the Penis Scratcha vibe is made of. For each of those, I barely had the package open before I wanted to puke.

And perhaps Sil-A-Gel itself is odorless. According to the packaging, it is used as a coating layer on the toys. Regardless, I've smelled PVC toys, UR3 toys, and Sil-A-Gel toys, and they all smell different. So it COULD be the Sil-A-Gel reacting with whatever else is in the toy that makes it smell different from other materials. But Sil-A-Gel also sweats (worse than some jelly toys I've seen, yuck) so perhaps smell is a sign of it breaking down? I don't know. I'm not a chemist, nor do I work for Doc Johnson. All I know is Sil-A-Gel toys smell, and they have a distinct smell. I can open a package and tell if it's a Sil-A-Gel toy without looking at the label. And no, the smell does not wash away or air out. I had one for a year that smelled just as strongly as when I bought it.

I stay away from the soft stuff in general (rubber, jelly, Cyberskin). I like the stuff that's easy to clean, won't break down over time, and won't pick up lint and hair. Some silicone is okay, but I generally lean toward metal.

Jelly! Really my pet peeves are anything porous, that is not easy to clean, contains phthalates or is just bad for your body. This is something I am using inside my body, so I definitely don't want it to be harmful.
