Favorite Material

Contributor: sweetpea12 sweetpea12
I am just wondering what your think the best type of material is for a toy, long term? What you like to keep around your house, and what you absolutely hate.

I've never tried glass, metal, or wood. Hard plastic feels so cheap to me. Rubber isn't a material I like to use, so that left me with silicone, which I do really enjoy.

Silicone is my favorite. Glass is very long lived though. Metal is also. I have one plastic clit vibe that i like, Lelo Mia. Otherwise i'm silicone and glass all the way. I'll eventually try metal and wood but I have to save points and pennies for those!

I like every safe material I've tried and I suppose I will like the ones I haven't, when I get the chance. Cheap plastic feels great on my clit, glass can firmly stimulate my g-spot (suppose the same would be true of metal and wood) and silicone has a bit of give that makes penetration feel wonderful.

I haven't picked hard plastic in the survey because you said long term and I tend to drop hard plastic vibes and they crack around the base. I'm more careful with glass. I've also observed some discoloration on my PU coated vibe. Bleaching it only makes it worse.

I hate jelly and anything porous, and I especially hate latex. Yuck! I'm just obsessed with glass right now and 3/4 of my collection are glass dildos. I've never tried firm plastic but I reckon I may like it, I just try to go for 10's on the safety scale!

I really enjoy silicone but my fiance wants to start trying glass toys because she loves the look of them.

I think silicone has a nice feel and good durability.

Silicone is my absolute favorite. I like glass as a material, but I've currently only got one glass toy (I had a few others, but it turns out that some shapes aren't a good idea while my pre-orgasmic muscle spasms are happening). I also like plastic, but I don't think it could be considered a good "long term" material, generally speaking (though I have actually gotten a number of years out of a few plastic toys).

I really love silicone. It's soft and somewhat forgiving, safe, and just freakin awesome!

I really love my steel Njoy toys. I have yet to try silicone or glass, but they are on my list.

Glass and metal are the two we avoid-the rest are all pretty good.

The majority of my toys are silicone. I have 3 glass toys that I like and plan on adding more to my collection. My next purchase is going to be the Njoy pure wand and it will be my first steel product so I don't know I'll like it, but I'm giving it a shot. I'm finally moving out of my silicone zone after being here for a while.

For a vibrator, I like hard plastic because it transmits vibration and pressure so well, and silicone because it does all of the above AND feels super luxurious and nice.

For a dildo, I love glass! I dunno, it just feels the best in my vag.
