I have this vibe & was pondering reviewing it, but I was looking at the info. on it & I got confused. The EF info. says it's made of jelly. I bought it elsewhere & my box says "Pthalate-Free PVC." The materials information guide here tells me that jelly is actually the same thing as PVC (both being polyvinyl chloride), which would make them both unsafe (both safety rated as 2). However, the guide says Pthalate-Free PVC is safety rated 8. Soo...
A)What the heck is the silly thing made of?
B) Is there a special version of PVC that is made without pthalates for use in things where it would matter? Such as sex toys? (And, if so, why are companies still making the old pthalate-y stuff?) This vibe only smelled plasticy when I very first opened it & the odor went away quickly. It wasn't greasy-feeling & I haven't had any problems with it.
C) I haven't had toys until recently, but from what I recall from friends & stores, I associate jelly with being super-squishy & PVC with pipes. Yet, this vibe is notably firm. Does jelly come in different levels of firmness? I've avoided some jelly toys that looked interesting more because I thought they would be floppy than due to safety reasons. (If I like them, I'll use a condom & I'm not sharing, so no biggie).
Anyone able to clarify a bit?
