Have You Tried Wood Toys?

BuckeyeGal04 BuckeyeGal04
I'm trying to get past the idea that wood is unsafe. I've done some research and understand that these toys have a coating, but I still struggle with the thought that it won't get clean or could cause splinters.

If I won one or something I would, but as they are they're out of my price range!

I have looked at them, but they are quite pricey, and the ones here are a bit larger than I would like.

I'm not really interested in trying wood, but I'm not worried about splinters or anything. I'm just not a huge fan of the way wood looks, and I don't think I'd enjoy the lightness. I'd rather have glass or metal. I find them more attractive, and I enjoy the weight.

The Nob Essence Romp is easily one of my most favorite toys of all time.

I would be worried I would get a splinter...

I'm definitely not worried about getting a splinter if I'm getting a toy from a reliable manufacturer. It's mostly the price that's held me back from getting a wood toy so far. I can definitely understand the reasoning for the price, I just can't afford it yet.

I added my first wood toy to my favorite list just tonight. Until i joined Eden, i had no idea wood toys were even available.

I haven't tried them and don't want to at the time. I just recently tried glass after being if-y about it and loved it but I'd be afraid wood would splinter too.

We haven't tried them - it's not that we wouldn't, it's just that the metal, glass and silicone we have - we like and I don't see the imperative or advantage of wood.

I know it's irrational of me but I'm afraid of getting splinters.

Cannot imagine splinters as an issue when wooden toy is new (!), but as it ages, how's the finish going to hold up? That and the price keep me from seriously considering wood.

Hardwood dildo products aren't big. I'm sure one of those would be small enough for you.

I'm puzzled about why people continue to worry about splinters. Is there even one review where someone had a problem with a splinter? No. My wooden toys are as smooth and polished as wooden furniture.

Don Wands Treeze bubble butt plug, love it. Unless you're making your own from scrap wood or something then splinters are a myth, IMO.

If you're worried about splinters or anything of that nature, or concerned about the porosity of wood, you haven't done enough research on the manufacturing and the finish they use. It's not a normal wood finish that's used on your wooden dining room chair or your dresser. And even at that, I don't think I've ever gotten a splinter from a piece of finished wooden furniture that hasn't been damaged in some serious way. As long as you're going with a reputable company that is using a finish that is appropriate to the purpose and not someone making them in their garage, you won't have a problem. If you expose it to something sharp enough and with enough force to damage the finish, you might have an issue, but that's true with ANY material. Scratch or cut your silicone toy with something sharp or expose it to an incompatible lube and it needs to be replaced, drop your glass toy on something hard enough with enough force and it will break, scratch your metal toy with something rough or sharp enough and you've ruined it. Most manufacturers recommend routinely inspecting toys made of all of these extremely safe and high quality materials for damage that would render the toy unsafe. Wood should be handled no differently, but is no less safe. Can a wood toy be damaged? Yes. But will it just splinter with normal use and care? No. Will it absorb or trap fluids or icky stuff? No. It's like the people who worry a glass toy will break inside them while they are using it. Not bloody likely unless it was damaged prior to you using it which if you routinely check it, you would know and not use a damaged toy. The finish companies like Don Wands Treeze and Nob Essence and Hardwood Dildos use in their manufacturing makes wood toys very safe, which is why Eden gives wood a safety rating of 9. Wayyyyyy safer than a lot of the materials people use without even batting an eyelash. How many people pick up a jelly toy or something like that and use it without even thinking about the porosity or the sanitation concerns or the danger of the chemicals or possible allergens? TONS. Not to mention the dangers lurking in readily available lubricants and other products! Reputably manufactured wood toys are really extremely safe by comparison. I think wood with the finish they use would probably be even harder to damage than silicone since anything pointy or sharp could ruin a silicone toy really easily but you'd have to apply some force to damage a finished wood one.
