Issues with silicone toys touching?

Virgingasms Virgingasms
I've heard conflicting reports on whether or not it's safe to store silicone toys together. Have you tried? Any horror stories? I've also read that the quality of the toys should be considered, could I store several quality silicone toys, ex. Tantus, together?

Does that mean you've stored silicone toys together without problems?

I only have one silicone toy so far so I don't have any stories but I do know there have been a few contributors who have sacrificed cheaper silicone toys in the name of science. I don't remember who did it but they kept some less expensive silicone toys together to see what happened.

I think it's more of a precaution, really. Something COULD happen to the silicone if it's touching for a while so it's better to keep them apart just in case.

I make a real effort to keep our silicone toys from touching in their drawer. I alternate silicone with glass and steel toys to make sure they stay separated. the silicone is too expensive to take a chance on damage from careless handling.

I've only tested this with Tantus toys, but my understanding is that high-quality silicone won't melt, leach colors, or whatever. I have a drawerful of Tantus prototypes, all jumbled together, in my office and they've been there for ages with no issues.

I also had someone ask if she put a Tantus Stroker on a Tantus Feeldoe (to make it girthier) would the silicone-on-silicone cause problems? So I tested that out too. Even the supersoft silicone had zero problems after months of testing.

It's also really common for toys to be labeled "silicone" that may or may not actually be silicone blends. Or, not even silicone at all. This is an unregulated industry, so there's no oversight on labeling.

This. Pure, high-quality silicone toys can touch one another without issue. I don't bother to separate my silicone dildos regardless of brand and they've never had any sort of reaction with one another. But if I suspect a toy isn't 100% silicone, I store it separately.

Silicone composites, TPR, TPE, jelly, etc., will melt each other and will also melt pure silicone. Pure silicone won't melt pure silicone.

Jenna, Rin and ToyGeek are spot on with this one. 100% high quality silicone is completely inert. It won't damage other silicone and other silicone won't damage it. It won't melt, deteriorate etc.

But not all things labeled "silicone" are 100% pure, high quality silicone.

Pure silicone has no problems. I've stored my toys (silicone, glass, plastic and metal) together in a box for about 10 years with no problems.

You do need to keep it from physical damage (tears, cutting), especially if it's soft silicone.
