It is still somewhat porous since it is a blend. It is still a good material it's just you cannot share unless you use a condom over it. Silicone lube is not recommended, you could try a spot test though. Just put a drop on a unusable area and wipe it off. If you notice and change to the material it's a no go.

Adding on to what ToyTimeTim said above, TPR silicone cannot be completely sterilized so even if your toy is exclusive to you, I would throw it away in the event of infection.

I hate that the material name includes "silicone," I think it creates confusion.

TPR silicones can contain a minimum of 10% silicone for the name. That 90% difference can be huge
