Waterproof Vs Splashproof?

Sarabear213 Sarabear213
I was looking at getting a new vibrator, but I noticed that this one said splashproof instead of waterproof. I'm assuming the difference is in its ability to be submerged, but I wanted to make sure I was using the toy safely. I was looking for the toy to be safe for use in the shower. If anyone could tell me, that would be awesome. Thanks!

The toy in question was this one, if anyone has specific experience:

I think too much water would damage it.

I do not have this specific toy so I cannot give you an answer about it. However, generally when they say that a toy is splashproof, you can get a bit of water on it and it will not harm it. Like lightly washing the toy. Waterproof means that you can take it in the tub, shower, put under running water.

Some people take the chance and use splashproof toys in the shower and they do fine, but sometimes they don't. As this is not a high end vibe, and therefore probably not as carefully constructed, I personally would not try it in the shower. I would only use a waterproof toy (preferably that others have confirmed as submersible in their reviews) in the shower. If you keep your back to the spray of water, you may do fine with this as splashproof should be okay in the shower. It's just that many people's experiences have proven otherwise and that is why we are so cautious. Besides, you spent a good amount of money on this and it would be horrible to lose it due to water damage.
