Condoms on Silicone toys question.

Hi,

I know you are not allowed to use silicone lubes on silicone toys... but how do you know what condoms are safe to use over them when most dont indicate what type of lube they use? I use Four Seasons condoms (Australian brand).

also, regarding storage of silicone toys is it okay to store them in an open tupperware container in a wardrobe? figured it was better to allow them to breath? only thing is a bit of dust gets in there... but i wash before hand anyways...

I use silicone lube on condoms that I put over silicone toys and they have all stayed fine. The lube is on the outside of the condom. If you store your toys in upperware, make sure they are not touching each other. You can wrap them in cloth or plastic baggies or saran. They don't need to "breathe".

Many condoms use silicone lube. I have a Ridge Rider sleeve (TPR silicone) and Lelo Bo (TPE), both would come into contact with the silicone lube on the outside of the condom.

The EF materials guide says only use water-based lube with TPR silicone: link

It seems TPE toys can play well with silicone lubes: link

I probably won't buy unlubricated condoms just for this purpose, so I'll give silicone-lubed condoms a try with the Ridge Rider (TPR silicone) and see what happens - it's an inexpensive toy, so if the lube sticks to the toy, no big loss. Thankfully the Lelo Bo (much more expensive) should work with silicone-lubed condoms.

also, ...
The silicone toys I have came in very handy plastic tubes! That way they can stay upright and dust-free. I don't think that silicone needs to "air out" for any reason. Silicone lubes can melt silicone toys, so they shoudln't mix. If the condoms you're using have a manufacturer's website or other contact info, I'm sure that you can find out what kind of lubricant is on them.

Somewhere on the forums you'll find the silicone toys vs. silicone lube debate

I've always wondered if it's okay to do as well but do it all the time myself.

I know the condoms I have are packed in silicone lube so it's both inside on the tip and outside. I've never had any problems on pure silicone toys but that's not to say that others won't.

I've never had a problem with silicone-lubed condoms over silicone toys, but that's just my toys. The bottom line of silicone toys vs. silicone lubes is this: if they're both high quality, they're probably safe. Do a spot test on the base of the toy anyway to make sure, every toy with every lube. For lubed condoms, dab a bit of the lube from the condom onto the base of the toy to check.

I just got non-lubricated ones to put over my toys to avoid any "time of the month" potential staining of my most loved silicone toys. I figure if I need lube at all, I can just apply a water-based to the outside.

They even fit over the head of my Mystic Wand. It looks like its wearing a hazmat suit going into a nuclear situation, but it does the trick!
