I am going on a TOY DESTRUCTION BINGE today. Cleaning out my closet of Jellies...even my favorites. Anyone else ever do a major PURGE of toys after reading links here at EF???

Bignuf Bignuf
The links and articles you have all provided here at EF have convinced me. Okay, time for the jellies to GO...even my favorites. YIKES, what a scary chemical picture.

I will be VERY sad to see the trash truck haul them away, but if HALF of what I have read here is ONE QUARTER true...that is evidence enough that they are just not a good idea.

I still have enough toys to fill a couple U Haul's, but still...I will miss those Jellies and the happiness they gave me.

Has anyone else, after coming to EF, purged their lives of any STILL WORKING and perfectly "good" toys, because of safety concerns???

I'm off to the closet....garbage bag in hand....

Wish me luck. It is going to be hard.

I purge just to keep my collection to a manageable quantity. There are only so many toys you can use.

Dildos made of pleasureskin or anything else that has become sticky have been tossed long ago.

I only ever bought one jelly toy, and I never used it because, at the time, it was too big for me. So it got tossed in the Box of Shame long before I ever knew anything about material safety. A couple months back a friend and I cut it open and stole the bullet out of it.

Since then, I've stuck mainly to plastic, silicone and silicone composites, and glass. So I haven't tossed any more toys because of safety concerns. If I see a toy that looks really awesome and I'm iffy on the material, I'll use condoms.

I did toss out my battery-guzzling jelly rabbit after I got my Vr5. For the Hell of it, I took out a scissors and dissected it before tossing it. I wanted to see the inner workings of a rabbit vibrator, I guess.

The one jelly toy I had burned and stung me, so I 'purged' it after the first use.

But that would be really hard to do, to throw away your favorites! I hope you find others to replace them. Also, I made this thread here to put links of toys that only come in unsafe materials, and we wish they came in safe ones like silicone, so that maybe companies will take some initiative. Feel free to put your favorites on the list!

Good luck! *hug*

I killed and gutted my last jelly rabbit a couple of weeks ago. I kept the bullet, tough.

Now I will only try phthalate-free materials. If I get some safe, but not durable toys as an assignment, I will accept and enjoy them for however long they last - but I'm not paying for this type of toys anymore.

What Tuesday said!

We don't have anything in our collection anymore that doesn't deserve to be there. We only keep the things we love and that are 100% body safe.

jellies made for some good looking but uncomfortable as fuck shoes in the 80's, and they make for some tempting yet nightmarish sex toys.

good for you! silicone/ glass/ steel lovers.. UNITE!

Hmm, I did not know there was a problem with jellies...

I purged my collection about a week ago of all jelly toys partially because of my bad reaction to a jelly toy, partially because of everyone here talking about how unsafe it was, and partially because some of them were old and gross. My collection got smaller and I'm very sad about it. I must have thrown away a good half or more of my stash (I threw away old non-jelly items as well if they were old/broken/had gone unused too long).

It's okay though because that's just incentive to buy more stuff!!

LOL...I had several pairs of jelly shoes back in the day. As cute as they were, they never failed to give me blisters. Gravel would also get stuck in the heels.

I remember those shoes. They were cute but were also borderline medieval torture devices.

I hope you haven't thrown them out yet! Those jelly toys are so bad for the environment! You can recycle them here! And get a vouture to spend on their site, which I can't seem to find!

Nope, I don't have that kind of problem, because all my toys are either made of silicone, stainless steel, or glass. And I've been strongly advising beginners to start with good quality toys, instead of trying out inexpensive low quality toys.

THANKS FOR THAT LINK. WISH I HAD KNOWN ABOUT IT EARLIER. Trash man already took SIX...yes, SIX paper shopping bags of old (and some BRAND NEW IN THE PACKAGE...Made In China Jellies) to the dump after I wrote this posting this morning. I will keep cleaning...A LOT more to go, and will send them to this "recycling" place.

THANKS for the tip.

My problem was that 1. We have been collecting toys for over 30 years. 2. Some of my REALLY NICE favorites were Jelly Rabbit Vibes, which would "flutter" just right...like NO other material, in fact.

However, after reading everything here...YUK...cannot enjoy them any more.

Is there any real SQUISHY and jelly like material that is SAFE???? The SILICONE stuff all seems pretty plastic like by comparison.

Any suggestions are MOST welcome.

I have one jelly toy that sits in the bottom of my toy box because im not sure what to do with it (seems weird to throw out in the regular trash). I have some that are made from a questionable material but I need a similar toy of a better quality before i throw them out.

Sadly, I had to dispose of my first dildo, Steve, because he was jelly. He was one of my best friends, and I kicked him to the curb like so much rotten cabbage. He has since been replaced by glass and wood.

I have only one jelly toy that I probably should get rid of since I don't even use it.

The squishiness of silicone is going to depend a lot on who'd making it. Tantus, Fun Factory, and Bad Dragon silicone is squishier than that lone jelly toy of mine.

You might instead try TPR Silicone. It's not as high as pure silicone on the safety scale, but it's relatively safe and tends to be a bit softer on average.

Yep just about to do the same exact thing. All the jellys are hitting the street even if they work.

The new Supersoft toys from Tantus are very squishy, more so than jelly. For something firmer, I recommend Tantus' O2 silicone and Vixen Creations' Vixskin silicone.

My Vixskin Johnny was very squishy. Too much so. But another reviewer said her vixskin Johnny was a similar softness as other vixskin toys and her Maverick was super squishy. But even the 'firmer' vixskin toys are so soft. I doubt jelly toys are softer.

I should probably think of doing this sometime soon. Would be hard to do, but I'm sure it's needed every once in a while.

I get rid of toys regularly so I can maintain a small but nice collection. I don't need sex toys falling out of my closet, so to speak
