Jelly Deformation?

Well I loved this little bugger and it came at a bargain so I suppose I can't complain too much. But I whipped it out for play tonight only to find that the jelly seems to have dented and deformed itself on the lovely bulbous head. I had it in a pocket next to my turbo glider and I suspect with some heat and pressure, that's the culprit that did this. It has very odd dents/suctionish things on it now.

Is this prone to happen to jelly toys? Could it have been the California summer heat? I would like to prevent this from happening in the future.

But in case people are wondering, this a toy I would glady invest in again.

It is my experience that jelly toys just deteriorate really fast...the heat may have sped up this process though. I do know heat can cause more phthalates to leak out of jelly. It probably just kind of melted on you a little. I would have to say you should go ahead and get a new one or better yet, find a comparible toy in silicone! Silicone can be boiled so, heat shouldn't be an issue with it at all! It always sucks when one of your favorites melts.

Does your house get pretty warm? I've never had that problem and I live in AZ. Was it touching the turbo glider? Sounds like a toy material interaction to me.

It's probably material interaction (and since its jelly, almost anything can 'dent' it like that). Best to keep all toys from touching one another.

Scary. I haven't had anything melt on me yet, but I keep everything in separate bags or the container they come in. Just one more reason to avoid Jelly.

Thanks guys. I've been waiting to make this investment for a while but I think last night was a deciding factor (plus my current storage system couldn't handle any more toys). Time to invest in that For Your Nymphomation toy chest.

Jelly is one of the easiest materials to warp/melt/dent....just so you know. Luckily, it's cheap enough to get another, just remember to use a condom with it!

My Butterfly Kiss ended up melting or something.. One of the antennae fell off, and the wing on that side is kind of deformed. I wonder if maybe storing jelly toys in a mini fridge would save them from melting.

As Cock Wrangler said, jelly will react with other materials and it is a proven fact. This is particularly true when it comes in contact with the "realistic" materials like UR3 and similar derivatives. This can also happen with some lubes if the toys are not cleaned promptly after use. Jelly will also react to polypropylene and polyethylene plastics. These are the hard plastics such as the type used in scale models and tackle box trays and some storage containers.

While this isn't a deformation- I had to share!
My boyfriend has a masturbation sleeve. I'm guessing it's Jelly. I had picked it up at a friend's sex toy party (pure romance). It was originally clear. It is now a lovely shade of blue. It's so porous that the dye from the bag it's stored in is slowly seeping into the toy. Slightly creepy & a great example of why you should never share something like this!
We now avoid Jelly.

Somehow I always end up buying or reviewing jelly toys (I don't know why but they always catch my eye), but I've never had this happen to me. However, I've never used anything but water-based lube, and cleaned with water/mild soap/toy cleaner. Just another reason for me to treat my toys right, and store them correctly though, I had no idea this was possible!

Don't know if anyone here follows Freddy and Eddy but they posted a little article on the supposed 'reactions' of silicone toys/lube and jelly toys. From their experiments which included DUMPING silicone lube on silicone toys, they found no deformation. I am of the opinion that pthalates and potentially other chemicals in jelly simply melts, rather than a reaction with others.

Right, it's been discussed elsewhere that pure silicone toys can be compatible with silicone lubes.

However, and even F&E say this in that article "Jelly toys (such as the Rabbit) are a mixture of different substances and NOT 100% FOOD OR MEDICAL GRADE SILICONE, so it's best not to expose them to other silicone toys or lubes."

I always use water-based lubricant, and I typically wash my toys with either anti-bacterial hand soap, or if it seems like the toy is extra dirty, I get a bit of Dawn dish soap. I noticed that another toy I have, made by UR3, actually pretty much welded itself to its packaging.

Yup, this will happen with cheap jelly toys link that. You REALLY need to keep them in a cool place away from all other jelly toys. They also can't touch anything else...

I just had this melting happen to one of my favorite vibrators. I'm still mourning the loss and wish I had come upon this thread weeks ago.

So let me confirm,
-keep jelly toys in their original packaging
-and, away from plastic.

Well, the packaging mine came in is plastic, but it was covered with a shrink wrap, so I'm not sure if the plastic holder would be safe to use?
How else do people store jelly toys? In the toybox it can attract lint especially if it is a lined toybox. Would the plastic wrap you put over your food be a good cover for it?

I stored my jelly toys in aluminum foil for a month or so, and I noticed after removing the foil a week or two after initially wrapping them that the crinkles of the foil had left little dents and crevices in them. I currently have them wrapped in plastic bags, which are smoother and probably won't leave many dents, if any.

Generally speaking, I avoid jelly toys. If I do use them, I use a condom, clean before and after each use, don't share, and replace them every year or so.

It's definitely probably the material..
It's given me some issues -- though not deformation. It 'sticks' and hurts sometimes and it's made me quite 'afraid' to use jellies again D:

I wouldn't say they have a long lasting power. After about a year mine feels not as smooth as it used to even when I give it an extra cleaning.

My friend is considering getting this, and after reading your review I'm thinking she made a good choice.

I had my Kiss for about as year and noticed the same type of deformation. The heat is not what caused mine...I live in Alaska. I do not know what casuses it but I assume it just happens over time with this kind of material. The wings are warping and an antenae has fallen off, but that just told me it was time to buy another one. These are the cheapest toys I have in my toychest, but it gets the job done for the most part -- especially when I am in a hurry.

I have a jelly toy and it doesn't take much heat to melt them. My jelly toy has a flat spot where it was resting in my toy draw. It wasn't touching any other toys... it's just the heat thats done it. Our summer last year wasn't all that bad either but it still effected this one. I refuse to buy jelly or Elastomer toys now for that reason!

Nothing has ever happened to my jelly toys. Keep them separate in a ziplock bag and then put them together in another bag.

jelly toys with jelly toys make jello. I've heard. I just got my first jelly toys, i'll be putting them somewhere grand, and remote from everything.

This just happened to two of my favorite jelly toys today.
Edit: It actually seems to be silicone lube that melted them =/ I wasn't aware that that could happen.

I think the advice you have been given from everyone else is great. I am a bisexual women myself but I don't like labels. At the end of the day i am just me and one thing doesn't define me so don't let anything define you. Just be you and have fun and live a life of what is best for you.

The Butterfly Kiss is actually made out of a pthalate-free rubber material known as TPR. It's far safer, but as far as durability is concerned, you may be right, the rubber might just not last as long.
