Vibrator... melting?

Platinum jack rabbit
Related to: 
I left the toy in my drawer (I usually keep it under my bed) and somehow the rabbit ears, part of the shaft and other places had seemingly had melted. I'm still in shock over how this could have happened. I went to go use it, and thick melted gel was on my hands. I'm so disappointed.

Could this be because of heat? Other toys around it? Anything? I really want to buy another one, but I'm scared it'll happen again. It was my favorite toy.

I just did some research and I think it's because the rabbit was touching another toy. ): Oh well. I just purchased it again.

If you have rather warm weather there at the moment, it could very well be from the heat.
I had the TPE Flirty Magic Ball and it melted slightly and it hadn't touched anything else.
I also had an Elastomer rabbit that had little nubs all up the shaft. They all melted one summer. It wasn't near any other toys - just laying on a shelf in my cupboard. It didn't take a lot to melt it.
I won't own another Elastomer toy!

A toy can melt from touching another toy?! What materials does that happen with?!

Why would you buy it again when it's made from such fussy and unreliable whatever it is?

No judgement, I just can't imagine putting more money into the same toy after it disintegrated like that lol. Was it like the best rabbit ever?

Silicone is bad about this too. The easy way to avoid this problem from happening is to store these toys in a bag of some sort...you can get an actual toy storage bag, a wine bag, or even just a plastic ziploc bag. The bag will keep it from rubbing against other toys and keep it safer. You also want to make sure it is laying flat in the drawer and not on top of other toys. Just a couple extra steps when you put these toys away will make sure that they last and you don't have these issues again!

Thats strange. Did they give you any reason why it would happen? I have alot of toys touching each other and the last thing I want is my house to burn down due to my drawers filled with sex toys. LOL

I've had toys melt from heat and/or touching another toy before. Let's just say lesson learned and if/when I plan on repurchasing those I'll be more diligent about the upkeep.

Basically any toy can melt from touching any other toy. I had a box of rejects once that I just shoved into a box until I felt I had enough to ship off to a sex toy recycling program. They ended up fusing into a glob. lol

I didn't know TPE could do that! O.o (My dorm at college doesn't have air conditioning, so I have made a mental note that I can't buy any TPE toys, lol!) Melted toys=bad.

Ah wow, that sucks! Gotta be careful with flexible plastics touching eachother, I've had some odd objects warp or melt because of this (not sex toys, but still.). I keep my flexible toys separated by tissues in a metal box for this very reason (metal keeps them cool, and won't leave textured impressions like my wood box), and the hard ones in a wooden box.

Darn, it's unfortunate about the toys reacting to one another, but yeah gel-type and other non-closed-cell materials have a tendency to do that. Which is why I prefer silicone and glass or metal is always a safe bet to prevent the melting too

That would be a terrible experience, especially if you were about to use it because you were in the mood.

Anybody else wonder why people seem to only caution against silicone on silicone? I too hve had this happen to toys and have researched it as a result. This can happen to any toy made of soft plastic, jelly rubber, silicone and any combo thereof. I store all of my toys in their own pouches and in a toy box away from vents, sunlight and lights.

Yup, sad fact of life is that most toys don't play well together. We store our toys in fabric bags that I sew.

Now im never going to get a rabbit. I thought they were scary anyways.

Separate pouches for each toy would be the best way to go. Pouches are relatively easy to make by yourself with just hand-stitching if you don't have a sewing-machine.
