Latex Allergy/Sensitivty

Liz x420x Liz x420x
So I recently found out I have a latex sensitivity and to be on the safe side I got rid of over 20 realistic toys I had made out of rubber that I really liked =(

Now that I can no longer use rubber I cannot seem to find any really realistic looking toys besides a very limited number of "Sil-a-Gel" toys which says they are Latex free, but I am not sure because they smell like rubber and Ur3 which I am not sure is actually Latex free either because some sites say it contains latex, does anyone know for sure?

Obviously Silicone is Latex free but the problem is I dont see any silicone toys that are actually realistic because of all being solid colors and I am wondering if they are unable to paint or dye silicone like they do to rubber? Even though I love EF as much as I do does anyone know of any sites besides EF that have more latex free realistic dildos in available?

Silicone can come in many colors, but to add paint or dyes would make it unhygienic--it would mean that something can come off, and that something isn't silicone. As for multi-color silicone, it's difficult because ultimately silicone doesn't stay where it should when it's poured into the mold. It moves around.

As for realistic dildos made of silicone, there are plenty out there--Vixskin and O2 are popular materials that are very realistic. Sure, they may not be multi-colored, but, they're from a realistic mold, and they feel realistic.

Thanxx for the info I will look into Vixskin but due to my Job looking realistic is important too and not just the feel.

Alan has a serious latex allergy, so we know how hard that can be. Unfortunately, we've found that the *only* way to be certain that a toy doesn't contain any latex if it isn't mentioned on the website listing or the toy's packaging is to call the manufacturer yourself. Just explain that you have an allergy and need to know, and most will be more than willing to help. We've only encountered 2 companies that have either been evasive or simply not returned our calls, and we took it as meaning that they don't give a squat about their customers' health and safety, so we don't buy anything from either of them.

The problem is, nobody really shares the same material formula, so you can buy a real-skin toy from one company that doesn't have latex, but real-skin from another will. The same goes for TPR and a few others. It's better to ask and be safe than sorry. We can tell you though that Topco's Cyberskin doesn't contain latex, and California Exotic Novelties marks the packages of any toys they make that have latex in them.

As for the VixSkin toys, some are more realistic than others. VixSkin Johnny is one of the more realistic ones that we've tried.

Fuck it. Fuck it.
I recently discovered my latex sensitivity (On accident! Ick. ) as well. It's nice to have this forum as a resource so I know what else I should look out for.

I would definitely suggest Johnny VixSkin from Vixen Creations, based on all the reviews it seems like an ideal candidate for you.

Thanxx for all the replies. I will try the vix skin out and hope that they continue to make more realistic silicone dildos as time goes on. Good luck to anyone with a sensitivity.

I have a minor allergy to latex so I certainly avoid anything with a high concentration of latex in the recipe. That being said, I do not know for certain of the possibility of small amounts of latex in the cyberskin dream dick but I have had no reactions and it is by far the most realistic I have encountered. Very detailed, realistic coloring including slight bluish hues over where you can see and feel veins, and differences in the color of the head and the shaft. Of course shape is realistic and also feel in terms of lightly touching the "skin" and also in terms of bending or grabbing the shaft firmly. It is large, but not unrealistic in size.
