I simply love the feel, and play flexibility of Jellies and NOTHING I have found is the same. Vaginal or Anal.

SO...with all the "worries" about Jellies folks here seem to express, are there any "SAFE" Jellies or Jelly REAL alternatives???

Is there one company or line of products with a "SAFE" jelly or jelly like set of toys?

Please share. Thanks.

Simply put, jelly isn't very body-safe. Besides the pthalates it contains, which some women gain infections from, it's very porous and can harbor bacterial. It also breaks down faster than some other materials, and shouldn't be kept for more than a year. But if you really enjoy jelly, you can protect yourself from the chemicals and bacteria by using a condom over jelly toys.

As for alternatives, silicone (the ever-popular material) toys can have varying levels of squishiness and flexibility, and many are nice and soft. It's nonporous, so bacteria won't be hiding inside, and with proper care silicone can last forever. I've also heard that elastomer is often nice and soft, though it's a bit more porous than silicone, so condom use is recommended.

Jelly (PVC) is the same no matter who makes it.

Exactly. Jelly is jelly, none of it is "safe". Have you ever tried a TPR or TPE toy? They have a nice level of squishiness but last longer and are safer than jelly. Otherwise, if you like jelly and it doesn't bother you, go ahead and use it.

I have this vibe & was pondering reviewing it, but I was looking at the info. on it & I got confused. The EF info. says it's made of jelly. I bought it elsewhere & my box says "Pthalate-Free PVC." The materials information guide here tells me that jelly is actually the same thing as PVC (both being polyvinyl chloride), which would make them both unsafe (both safety rated as 2). However, the guide says Pthalate-Free PVC is safety rated 8. Soo...

A)What the heck is the silly thing made of?

B) Is there a special version of PVC that is made without pthalates for use in things where it would matter? Such as sex toys? (And, if so, why are companies still making the old pthalate-y stuff?) This vibe only smelled plasticy when I very first opened it & the odor went away quickly. It wasn't greasy-feeling & I haven't had any problems with it.

C) I haven't had toys until recently, but from what I recall from friends & stores, I associate jelly with being super-squishy & PVC with pipes. Yet, this vibe is notably firm. Does jelly come in different levels of firmness? I've avoided some jelly toys that looked interesting more because I thought they would be floppy than due to safety reasons. (If I like them, I'll use a condom & I'm not sharing, so no biggie).

Anyone able to clarify a bit?

I was thinking that Jelly was PVC with extra chemicals added to soften it?

Most of the stuff that is actually labeled "PVC" feels much harder than my jelly toys.

Here are the materials pages:

Quite similar pages, but they are two pages instead of one, so I guess that means something?
