Most companies put warnings in their instruction manual not to so I don't.

I definitely wouldn't. The place I get my silicon toys from warns strongly against it. If you absolutely must, though, I'd do what others have said and try a spot test first.

Why risk it. Just get different lube.

I agree, if you're using a higher end toy, its not worth the risk of damaging it. Though, to be sure, I would contact the manufacturer to be safe.

Thanks man.

Where is the "Other" option?

Yes and no, like others have said some work and some do not. Do a spot test just to be safe. In my experience the lubes that have some kind of reaction to the silicone toy only had temporary problems. All of them regained the finish after a few days and half a dozen good hard cleanings...

...It's just as easy to use water or oil based lube.

I'm with the folks who say that it's possible, and my personal recommendation is to spot test the toy with the lube. Some will react, some will be just fine.

Seeing as really high grade silicone tends to be expensive, I wouldn't risk it without a recommendation from the manufacturer, being sure that both the toy and lube are 100% silicone, and a good spot test.

No, never, unless you want to spend some money on new toys to replace the ones you just destroyed...

I've used silicone lube on silicone toys. As long as you spot test, if you're not sure, you're fine. It's not like the toy will explode or melt into goo at the first dollop of lube.

The big issue, as been stated around the site, is when you use a silicone lube with a toy that's not 100% silicone (e.g. TPR Silicone). That can cause the problems.

I've heard that and funfactory's lube that comes with its toys is silicone based as well I believe. But I just don't risk it. I stick with my water-based lubricants.
