I've been hearing mixed things. I imagine there's a split on the issue.

Silicone lube may cause silicone toys to degrade. I seem to recall that most toy makers put disclaimers in their instructions about not doing this.

It's possible, people do and have done it - with both toy and lube of high quality, you might be able to get away with it. But test first.

However, I would not risk it, personally. No matter what, you're taking a chance.

I use silicone on silicone, but only if it's a high quality toy and lube. If one or the other isn't, then I wouldn't risk it.

eta: I still won't say 'yes it's okay' because it's generally not, that's just my general guideline.

We accidentally used Wet Synergy lube with our Ryder, and it DESTROYED the coating. We had to get it replaced.

Ciao. Ciao.
Why bother? I just would not risk it personally, there are plenty of great non-silicone lubes out there. Take care of your toys!

I wouldn't take the chance personally, especially if it's a toy you love and adore!

I'm the first person to answer yes. I have used silicone lubes on silicone toys before, and I've yet to have a reaction, although I know it is possible. Some manufacturers (including Tantus) state that it is safe to use a high quality silicone lube (Tantus recommends Pjur) with their silicone toys.

If both the toy and the lube are of high quality, it is possible to use them together. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that you do a patch test first - on every silicone toy you plan to use, and with every new bottle of lube, as the precise compositions of the lube can change slightly from batch to batch. The same holds true for hybrid lubes.

Water- and oil-based lubes are completely safe with silicone, so if you're ever unsure, you might want to just stick with those.

No, I wouldn't even risk it. Unless you are prepared for your silicone toy to possibly degrade or have weird things happen to it. Even if you haven't had a reaction with it yet, it can happen any time you use silicone lube on it. So if it doesn't happen at first you’re not in the clear. Good luck.

It's ok if the toy is 100% silicone (not a TPR/Silicone mix) and you wash it off when you're done.

If you're ever unsure, you can always spot test it.

No, but if you're still curious, do a patch test on the base.

If it is 100% medical grade silicone and high quality lube, then yes. I would always spot test first before just drenching the toy in it. I have been told this from manufacturers and my husband has tested it with his own toys. Personally, I use water based with everything just to be safe. You can check this article for further information.

I would say don't risk it especially when there are so many other lube options.

I wouldn't risk it. I've always wondered, though, what a silicone toy ends up looking like once its been destroyed by silicone lube. Does anyone have photos of this?

Just wanna second this link recommendation.

If anyone wants to try silicone lube with a high-quality silicone toy but you're not sure if it'll be a problem, you can:

1. Contact the company and ask which silicone-based lube they recommend (e.g., Tantus recommends Pjur)
2. Do a spot test on the base of the toy and let it sit for a while.
