Stupid Question about Silicone

Stupid Question about Silicone

Eden C. Eden C.
I know not to use silicone-based lubes with silicone toys, but I don't know why? What happens when you put a silicone-based lube on a silicone toy?

I'm just curious, and silicone's a bit too expensive for me to experiment.

From what I have seen, it "adheres" to the toy. There is a lot of talk about the lube causing damage or degrading the material. I have not seen this. But I have heard from one contributor of deformation being caused by a condom with silicone lube. It did not destroy the toy, but put a couple of 'dents' in it. There has also been discussion about some of the higher quality silicone's compatible with good quality silicone lubes.

I have a workshop coming up on the 12 of April, I will be showing not only silicone lubes and four different materials (including silicone) but oil based lubes as well.

If you like, do a small test patch on a non-used area of the toy. Place drop on the toy, wait a few seconds and wipe off. If the material 'blisters' you will know it is not compatible.

Does it only take seconds to react? And then ya know it's totally fine or could it still take longer to react on some?
I ahve been thinking about getting some silicone lube for anal play.
Have you had better luck with some lubes more than others or is silicone lube, silicone lube and it all just depends on the toy itself?

I wish silicone lube could be used with all toys...... including my cyberskin!

The one time I got a reaction is was in seconds. That was Better Sex Essentials lube and the Deep Secret dildo from Happy Valley. The weird part was that the next day there was no sign of damage.

In my upcoming test/workshop I used that lube and Wet Platinum on a "Premium" brand of silicone, same results.

Look for my workshop, I also tested cyberskin.
