Safest Materials Comparison

Jimbo Jones Jimbo Jones 05/01/2009

Looking at the safest of materials, let's try and come up with a comparison of which one may be the safest and still be useful for a variety of sex toys. The material has to be at least an 8 on the EdenFantasys safety range, so starting at the bottom of the range we have Plastic, WTP, Metal, Acrylic, Ceramic, Wood, Glass, and Pure Silicone. I will try and pull a similar product from each category for comparison. I may not have much experience with several of them, but I will add my two cents and hope that others that have more experience with some of these materials will do the same. Since I tend to like insertable toys with some curve, I will try to select ones designed for g-spot or prostate stimulation where possible. I will select toys with 1"-1.5" diameter as well.

Not necessarily just looking at the items being considered here, which material is the safest to you? In the comments you can explain your reasoning if you would like.
Metal is the only one of these with a range of safety (8-10) do you think that is accurate or if you only consider stainless steel, would it be a 10? How can Glass and pure silicone be compared when they both rate 10?

Any non-porous material is going to be very safe, so it's really a tossup. Silicone can be torn (if it's roughly handled, etc.) but otherwise I would say most of these materials are all good bets as far as safety is concerned.

For some reason, glass and stainless always seem the most safe to me. It's in my head, I know, and probably goes back to all my years working in hospitals and my youth spent boiling glass baby bottles but there ya have it. If it's in my head it's pretty much my reality and I tend to make choices based on it.

Haha. I like this poll. I went with glass. Because it's transparent so I can see inside it, and it never seems to really get very dirty in the first place. Totally in my head. I do love boiling silicone though.

It really seems like glass is the safety race. I guess that makes sense since it is so easy to clean.

I voted for glass. I thought for a while, trying to decide between glass and silicone, but I eventually decided that glass is safe with any lube so there are fewer chances for screwups there.

I went with silicone. All of these toys are pretty easy to clean (of the options I would have a question about wood, though, as the material is porous so you're dealing with a finish of some sort), but excluding silicone they're also stiff. In the hands of someone who wasn't careful they could cause bruising or possibly poke through something, or what happens if you fall or roll off the bed? The risks are low (who's going to let someone use a sex toy on them if they don't know and trust the person), but they are there, and in this vote everything else is so close.

This was a tough one, but I went with glass. I love glass, silicone, and steel all for their awesome non porous properties. I've heard many conflicting things about wood, in the sense that sellers on places like Etsy will only finish their dildos with FDA approved salad bowl oil and at least you know what you're getting that way, but I have friends that are dead set against Nobessence because they won't disclose what's in Lubrosity and only that it's USP standards met. Some people like to know EXACTLY what's in something. :p As far as I know in terms of porosity of wood, it cannot be shared due to it being so porous.

Metal, all the way. Glass makes me nervous about chipping, and silicone can run into troubles with silicone lube.

Average Joe Average Joe
I'd say metal. Glass could ultimately crack or break and as Red says, silicone lube isn't always compatible with silicone products. Medical grade stainless steel just feels safer to me.

I would think glass toys would be the safest in terms of cleanliness and chemicals, but I'm scared to use them so always migrate toward the medical-grade silicone.

You're scared because of the possibility of physical damage, I suspect, which is an aspect of safety. Silicone toys don't have this risk, and if it's the 100% medical silicone there really isn't any chemical risk either.

I think that medical grade steel is the safest, because a silicone toy can get torn, and with glass I always think about breaking it or possible hidden cracks... Maybe just in my head but... If I would make a "top 3": 1. Metal , 2. Silicone, 3. Glass.

I voted for silicone. I am probably biased since I don't own any glass toys (and love my silicone ones), but even so, I have this paranoia that I would end up breaking something that is made of glass. Yes, I realize that the Pyrex glass that sex toys are made of is designed to not break easily...but even so.

For overall safety I chose silicone. Glass is completely non-porous, as is silicone, but silicone doesn't chip, crack or break easily. Even a small chip or hairline break could spell disaster, and My Man doesn't let me have glass toys for that reason.

Honestly, I do think glass is safe, but he's looking out for me the best he can.

Metal is pretty safe IF it's pure stainless steel. Things with nickel in them are not as safe as some people are allergic. I am always a little wary of aluminum because of the Alzheimer's studies which showed increased aluminum in the brains of Alzheimer's patients. I really DOUBT that aluminum toys will cause a problem, but it still is sitting at the back of my mind. I don't even use aluminum cookware.

All these are highly rated for safety, but if I had to pick from the exact same shaped toy in all these materials, I would go for the glass every time.

I could have voted glass or steel on the pretense that I know they are both very safe. I voted silicone though because it is usually not too firm and has some flexibility to it so it runs less of a risk of causing an "owwie" while being used. It's my personal toy preference.

Problem with glass...it is still GLASS. I HAVE had a glass toy break. Thankfully NOT while in me, but when fell from my nightstand. I have great respect for potential fragility of glass and THAT does detract a bit from SAFETY. My steel toys could get shot from a cannon and not get a dent!!!!

Glass, 100% silicone, and stainless steel are all very safe materials, and are all actually used for cooking. All can be easily sterilized. I think stainless steel is probably the least likely to be damaged if dropped, although it might damage something else. Silicone and glass require more care - silicone can't be used with most silicone lubes, and glass could potentially become dangerous if it' is dropped and it cracks or chips. I would consider all of these to be about equally safe, as long as they are cared for and used appropriately.

I have toys made of silicone, of glass, and of stainless steel, and I know that they're all equally very safe. But still, I feeeel 'safest' with the stainless steel toy. Something about it being so shiny. And you know, medical equipment is made of stainless steel so...

Pure silicone, glass, and stainless steel are all non-porous and sterilizable. Silicone pulls ahead *slightly* imo because you don't need to worry about tiny chips or scratches like you do with hard materials.
01/21/2012
Curiouscat Curiouscat
Pure silicone, glass, and metal/stainless steel are all the safest materials you can buy. Non-porous, steralizable, safe great materials. Each has their own advantages though. It depends on the persons preference between those three materials from there on out because it doesnt get safer than this!

And as Greenleaf stated silicone may be the better choice because it wont chip or get scratches. Like glass and metal can.

Glass, steel, and silicone are all excellent materials. In my mind, the only thing that sets silicone above the others is that glass and metal are easier to scratch or chip when dropped. This creates a possible home for bacteria to thrive. I can drop my A bomb on a hardwood floor with little worry. If I ever dropped my pure wand or sasha plugs, then I'd be feeling and looking for scratches and such.

I like the textural qualities of silicone, harder materials can be fun, but you can't really make "soft glass" (at least not that I'm aware of). I think that's one of the main reasons silicone is so popular.
05/01/2009
Jimbo Jones Jimbo Jones
I put plastic on this one since it is so inexpensive that companies make anything out of it. As pure silicone continues to increase in popularity and the price comes down it will become more prevalent and more versatile.

a lot can be done with glass and similarly with silicone but I feel that plastic is the most versatile for both vibrators and even dildos., I know its rarely used for making dildos but I still enjoy most of my plastic vibrators sans vibes so Id love a good hard plastic dildo

I voted plastic because it seems you can make pretty much anything out of it and be able to sell the product for a reasonable price. Plus, it's pretty safe so long as it is phthalates-free. Silicone is also really good, but I consider it to be less versatile because you can't use silicone lube with it. That's not a problem for me, but it might be for some.
12/28/2010
IndependentlyHappy IndependentlyHappy
For me, it's a tossup between silicone and plastic, for very different reasons. Plastic tends to be more accessible, ubiquitous, and in a lower price range, so it gives beginners who don't want to spend a lot of money a safer option than just the standard jelly toys or Cyberskin ones, especially when they might not be aware of the possible health hazards of using these toys.

However, I voted for silicone because I find that it is the more versatile when it comes to actual one. You can do pretty much whatever you want to it, within reason (aside from using a silicone lube), and it shouldn't get damaged.

Silicone can be used for many different things, like strap on sex, solo, assisted masturbation, etc. It can be a better choice than hard materials for use with a partner, because it does not require such a delicate touch. Hard materials are more specialized, I find.

MeliPixie MeliPixie
I agree, silicone is the absolute most versatile, I think it's probably because it can be poured into a mould (like ceramic and metal) is flexible (unlike both) and isn't going to break if you drop it (unlike the ceramic). It's also softer than all these other options.

Silicone, in terms of what you're asking (vibration and rigidity).

I mostly just use dildos, and for me, glass toys are the most versatile because they're the easiest to clean and you can use any kind of lube with them. But I can see why some people would want less rigidity.

I chose to say value instead of cost because we can all compare the prices and see that plastic and acrylic are usually the cheapest, but aren't necessarily the safest, so is the additional safety worth the price increase?

While silicone tends to be a little bit higher priced than, say, plastic I would say it's the best value because it's fairly versatile and very body safe. The higher quality also means the product is more likely to last longer than a cheaper version.

I went with silicone for this one, simply because if you factor in the cost of replacing a lot of cheaper toys, you'd be spending a lot more money by buying an inferior material.

I definitely think the silicone is the best for your money because if you buy something too expensive (glass, ceramic, metal, sometimes wood) then it may last longer than your interest in the toy does, and then you're throwing away or storing that expensive toy. On the other side of the coin, the cheaper materials may not last as long, so you could end up buying another or a new toy sooner than you'd like. Silicone is a midrange price, but still highly durable as long as you don't cut it or set it on fire XD

Again, looking at more than just the products being considered here, which one has the texture you love? Let's throw temperature play in here as well. Do you like the way it reacts to warmth or cooling?

I'm surprised more people haven't opted for glass, but I guess since there are so many textures available with pure silicone that a lot of people are voting that way. Plastic has lots of textures available as well. Most of the stiffer materials don't offer as much texture choice.

Again, silicone or glass. For male toys silicone but I've seen some glass wands that are nicely textured and my fiance has a couple.

Considering all the other topics, which one of these would you not want to be without?
As I begin to explain the inclusion of each of the toys I need to start off by saying that I don't have any of these toys.
The Xtreme pack is the plastic toy and is pretty different from the rest since it is a bullet, but it is very highly rated here on EdenFantasys so I thought it may be a good choice to sway some people.
There isn't much choice for WTP, so I pulled out the one that seemed to have some g-spot curve to it (Akmeo).
The Fun wand is a good metal example that doesn't cost quite as much as some of the others.
The Crystalline wand ribbed is the acrylic choice and there are not a lot of options there, so no g-spot.
The Aveline is a less expensive ceramic alternative with a g-spot curve.
The Nob Essence Anal toy is a wood option with some curves that doesn't cost as much as some others.
The Indigo intruder is a less expensive glass option with quite a curve.
The Ella is a nice silicone double ended dildo with some curve to it that doesn't cost too much.

Did I unfairly weight it by putting the Ella in here or is it just one of the best toys for the money?
If I were to win this contest and get the toy that was voted on the most, I suppose I should have included one of the ones I've really been lusting after. Not that I would mind having the Ella, either.
05/01/2009
Ciao. Ciao.
I don't have Ella, but it looks like an excellent toy for its cost. The Indigo Intruder would definitely be a high second on my list.

So do people think this was a pretty good list of products made of various materials or is it too varied to make good comparisons? Should the plastic toy have been something more similar in size and shape to the rest to allow for better comparison?

This was kind of a hard question for me, as many of these toys are verrrrrrrry good. Particularly the Lovemoiselle and the Ella. But I chose the "Anal toy single" (aka "The Romp") because it is a crazy good multipurpose toy.

Well, I was trying to make the question some what difficult by selecting popular toys so people would really have to choose their favorite of the group. Glad that it sort of did that. If I were to select the toys out of the group that I really lust after, it would be the "anal toy single" and the Lovemoiselle as they are both materials that I don't have any experience with yet.

The Anal Toy Single (which nobessence calles Romp, which is a much nicer name, really) is a-may-zing. You should invest in one. It's good as a vaginal toy as well (very good, actually) and even as a back massager. No joke!

Selective Sensualist Selective Sensualist
I have a few NobEssence toys and they are, easily, my most favorite of the toys you have listed. (I also have the Pure Wand, the LELO Ella, the Xtreme Pack G-spot bullet, the Lovemoiselle Aveline, and several glass wands). As a matter of fact, NobEssence ties with VixSkin as my very most favorite in my collection of toys (over 55 high quality dildos, plugs, and vibrators).

And I agree with Red above: The NobEssence Romp is AMAZING used vaginally. It's not just a butt plug.

I'd choose the xtreme pack because I know it actually works well. I have the Ella and I honestly hate it - it hurts/doesn't work well for me at all. If it was another silicone toy, that's probably what I'd pick, though.

Taking in all the poll information into consideration I'm torn between the Xtreme pack and the Ella.
The Xtreme pack won, silicon/plastic and many many many uses and different settings.
Ella is silicone bliss, but I much prefer my Metal Wöx wand for gspot use.
