Ok first off i want to say i love this vibrator. The head is personally my favorite part. Watching it pop in and back out is always hot. This is one of the most comfortable toys ive used every. Head is very flexible and vibrations are intense at max setting. I recommend this to anyone. However, my question is for people out there, Jelly material has a low safety rating, everytime i use it, i was it in warm soapy water and rinse off before actually using it. Then when im done using it, i also again wash it in warm soapy water. Do i really have anything to worry about as far as bacteria etc? Since the material safety is low.

The problem with Jelly is not only bacterias, it is the material components what makes it not safe for the body.

Jelly have phthalates, you can search that to get more information. Silicone is the only flexible material that you can use without worry about.

You can't safely share jelly, or use it anally. And in my experience jelly toys don't last long. I have never had an issue using jelly toys, but I don't buy them anymore because I've found they just don't last. I honestly don't think you have anything to worry about, unless your body is sensitive to the material. But, that's just me, and keep in mind I don't use them.

The problem is that jelly is porous, so bacteria can be absorbed into the material, and won't come off when you wash it. As agf mentioned, they also contain pthlates and other chemicals that could be bad for your body.

Don't switch partners or orifices with it, and if you have some sort of an infection it's best to switch or cover it up. It's best to cover it up anyway to prevent chemicals leaching into you, but that's a different topic. In general jelly is best avoided.

In addition to silicone, TPR silicone is better than jelly. It's not completely worry-free, but it's better.

I'm not worried about a porous material - cause I use UR3 and Cyberskin regularly without any problems at all and I refuse to cover them with condoms. I'm willing to take the risk. But with that being said, I'm not sensitive to infections at all.

The only reason I won't use jelly or rubber is because of the chemicals in them.

What bugs me about smelly-jelly is that some women have, like me, a slight averse reaction to it that is subtle enough that many don't notice. I only noticed that my rabbit was stinging me when I went back to it after years of using safer toys. Stinging can be increased as the material decomposes. It certainly was - I had to take it out. But in retrospect a bit of that sensation was present at the very beginning.

Wow lots of very good info thank you all. I have been looking over silicone toys of today. I just wish there was more of a selection, the few that i found really interesting i cant afford more than one toy. I have used a variety of different toys, never shared them with anyone. Never had any issues of infections before or after use of toys/sex. I see everyones point on the absorbing material. I think that i will definitely try to stick with silicone from now on.

It's funny because where i work at i sell a lot of silicone products, mostly for household/kitchen use. I personally do not like it for that use, but at least looks like the safest option for pleasure. Thanx again for all the helpful info. I should get working on my eden points and save some money for some silicone fun

*edit* reading over my original post, holy crap i must have been tired or something to have some poor sentence structure and English haha.
