A Handy-Dandy Guide to Penis Pumps: For Men

Quality and Safety

Finally, if you want quality look for products made in the good old US of A. In light of the alarming news in recent months about the safety risks of many products coming from China, I think there is room for concern about the safety of Chinese made sex toys, which dominate the marketplace.

There are no government regulatory agencies out there with a mandate to protect us from unsafe or unhealthful sex toys. And the sex toy industry often does an equally poor job at regulating itself. Profit motives often trump all other considerations. There is virtually no scientific data on sex toy safety. The responsibility to keep ourselves safe falls to us, the consumer. We can better protect ourselves if we are informed consumers. We can begin by taking some responsibility for what we consume. We could refrain from buying on impulse or being swayed by slick smutty packaging, or completely bogus claims about a product’s performance.

We can also protect ourselves by patronizing responsible and ethical sex toy retailers. These retailers, like EdenFantasys.com, have excellent customer service departments. They also offer terrific resources for all your sex toy related questions; like this very guide you’re reading now.

Consider hypoallergenic materials, such as silicone and elastomer. They are more expensive, but worth it. Stay away from products that contain artificial dyes and fragrances, particularly if you’re going to be inserting the product inside your body. Always be alert to possible adverse or allergic reactions you might have when using a sex toy.

Remember: The more information you have, the wiser a consumer you will be.
