Need help putting together a safe sex guide

LaLaLouise LaLaLouise
So I manage an adult novelty store and have learned so much from EF that I want to share it with my coworkers and also the other stores in our chain. I've already gotten the green light from the district manager to put together a "Toy Quality and Safety Quick Reference Guide". I will be featuring different toy materials, how safe they are and why, lube compatibilities, tips on sharing toys, cleaning them, etc. Tips for safer sex, allergies and other conditions that may react badly with certain products, etc. And I'm just looking for some advice on anything else I should include and how to lay it all out in a way that will make sense. I will probably make a chart for the lube compatibility and also print it and display it on top of the lubes display case. I will have a table of contents also. And in the back I will have all the sites I got the info from in case employees want to go to them and learn more details when their work is done. Any suggestions?

It seems like you have it covered, really. Just make sure you list what is okay to be boiled and what shouldn't be, but I'm pretty sure you already know all of that.

I'm interested in seeing the finished product!

I agree, a material care and storage sheet would be helpful. For instance, the ways each material should be cleaned and what materials they shouldn't be stored with. (For instance, don't store Silicone and TPR? touching.)

Also, when you're done, do you think you could post an e-book/PDF version so I can download a copy? It'd be awesome to have for reference.

If you can't do that, it's okay. Maybe you could just Zip a copy of the files so the community can download them and use them?

Ok so if I'm remembering correctly (at home right now and don't have the file on this computer) the chapters I have planned out so far are as follows:

General Safe Sex Tips
Condoms and other Protection
STDs
Safe Oral Sex
Safe Anal Sex
Toy Materials (including material properties, lube compatabilities, allergy concerns, cleaning and storing tips)
Lube Compatability Chart (will also have a quick reference chart for when we don't feel like reading through the entire Toy Materials section just for lube info)
Enhancement Products (pills, creams, etc)

I'm thinking maybe I should also have a section broken down into categories for any type of toy that could potentially cause injury, such as cock rings, pumps, fetish items, etc.

So since I finally started this thing and it will be an ongoing project over the next few weeks while I gather information, organize it, and regurgitate it into booklet form, can anyone think of anything you would want to know if you were a sex shop employee and wanted to be well-informed enough to help your customers make educated and safe decisions?
