oh goodness jelly. I was kind of startled with what I found when researching jelly. If you ever look at the back of a sex toy and see something like (for novelty use only) odds are one, your looking at a jelly toy and two there is some nasty stuff in it.
Most, if not all, jelly toys contain things called Phthalates. These are used to soften the base rubber or pvc that the toy was made of but the problem with that is these phthalates have been tied to problems with sexual reproduction, birth defects, etc. For that reason they have been taken out of and banned from many children toys. Think of kids getting sick from the rubber on erasers, that kind of thing. Sex toy companys can use these, and many still do because they are cheaper to manufacture, as long as they mark them as "For novelty use".
Add that to the fact they are porous and can't be truly sterilized and it can make for a nasty time.
All of this can be avoided if you don't mind using condoms or toy covers but sometimes you have to consider if that is worth the hassle of even if you want to spend your money that way. Some people don't mind, throw a cover on it and have their fun. Other people are so turned off once they realize whats in the jelly that they wouldn't want it near them in anyway shape or form.
I hope this is atleast somewhat helpful and I apologize for any grammatical and typing errors
