Jelly Rabbit vibrators and condoms?

Jelly Rabbit vibrators and condoms?

Naughty Student Naughty Student
I have read a few reviews on rabbit vibrators because I am deeply interested in obtaining one. Out of all the toys I have it is one which I lack. I am totally freaked out by phthalates and a lot of the rabbit vibrators on the market that come at a reasonable price are made of material (such as jelly) which contains phthalates.

Here is what I am wondering...of all those women who have a jelly rabbit vibe and are informed about phthalates, how many of you actually cover it with a condom? How often do you use your rabbit vibe and do you cover it every time? I am concerned bcs maybe splurging for a higher quality material rabbit vibe may be more worthwhile. Thanks for your help!

I personally don't have any toys that have phthalates in them. I know Vibratex, the makers of the Rabbit Habit don't have any phthalates in their sex toys. If you're one that's particularly sensitive to chemicals and smells, be warned that things made out of Elastomer can have a scent reminiscent of a permanent marker.
Have you looked under EF's category for rabbit vibes and narrowing them down to phthalates-free or silicone and seeing if any of those are to your liking or price range?

There are phthalates all over the place as they are not banned, you get exposure to them daily through a variety of means. So having a round or two with a washed jelly toy probably does you in as much as drinking an energy drink (phthalates in can linings) or not taking a wiff of new car scent (yep, phthalates there too). But it's good to limit exposure whenever you can so I would vote in favor of splurging for something phthalates free. There are a lot of TPR toys around 40-50 bucks, I think. Check out the royal line?

I LOVE the Eager Beaver. Unfortunately, it's jelly. I always cover it with a condom, not because I'm concerned with phthalates but because I want it to last longer... by covering it with a condom, I'm preventing bacteria from seeping into the material that cause a faster break down of the material.

The same as DreamyLove, Vibratex make GREAT rabbit vibes. Unfortunately, the Rabbit Habit link is not elastomer nor have I tried it so I can't vouch for the quality. However, I've tried the Sweet Spot which is made out of elastomer and is absolutely wonderful!!! I posted a video of it on my blog to show the speed, intensity, and noise levels. If it looks too large for you, the Velvet by Vibratex is a smaller version.

I think you'd spend a lot of money on condoms because it would require 1 for the shaft and 1 for the bunny ears...

I think it depends on how often you are going to use it. Everyday would eat through tons of condoms.

It might be cheaper to buy a higher quality one that way you aren't buying tons of condoms. Eventually it reaches a point where your spending more on condoms than if you bought the higher quality toy. But I'm not sure how far down the road that would be. You could do some math and find out how often you plan to use it @ 2 condoms per use until you reach the money it would cost for a higher quality rabbit. If it seems short then buy the high quality. If it's going to take a while you might buy the cheap one and buy condoms then upgrade later when something new comes out that is revolutionary. (Which may or may not happen in the time you account for.)

Try a bunch of different numbers (Like how often you use it) You could save a few bucks. Since you don't already have one it could turn out to be your fav toy and you use it more than you expected in the beginning, adding to condom costs.


I'm dead afraid of phthalates BC not much is known about what they do to your body specifically over long periods of exposure. I'm curious about if you handle the toy the phthalates would rub off onto your hands while you put the condoms on. I don't know if it gets absorbed into the skin or not, but if you handle the toy to put a condom on it your exposed to the phthalates and doing this a few times a week might add up to some unknown health concern that we haven't figured out yet.

If you buy a jelly toy now (to save money today) and you touch it so many times and develop a problem that medical treatments cost $50-+++ you basically lost money in that one and now have a health problem to deal with..

I'd play it safe. My view is somewhat biased I guess, because I've never used a jelly toy, I'm assuming if feels more awesome than silicone.

The phthalates aren't fused to the toy so they rub off constantly, its like dust on something, its just laying there ready to swept away onto what ever touches it.


Wow this is a ridiculously long post SORRY!!! More reading here link

Looks like phthalates are in nail polish too!

I have no qualms buying cheap condoms in bulk for toy use; I'll get 100-some off of Amazon for $20-30 bucks.

I only have one jelly dual-action, however, and it's the Butterfly Kiss, which is cheap enough that I'm willing to just clean it, then replace it once or twice a year to prevent infections.

I mainly try to use the fingers of latex gloves, you just cut them off. As far as the cost of condoms go, if you know where to look you can get them incredibly cheap. I watch one e-tailer religiously because they always sell their bulk condoms at deep discounts during certain times of the year. I also went to a Mardens once and found high quality Elexa condoms there, around $2.00 per dozen.

I use condoms for anal sex and I usually buy the big pack to save money but one box lasts me a good while. I doubt I would use my vibe everyday since masturbation sometimes is an irregular visitor. I'll only play around with toys if I have been thinking about it for a while.

I have used the search engine to refine my search always to phthalates free toys that use AA batteries but I am just so inlove with those candy pink bunny vibes. The higher quality materials have butterflies or other shaped clit stimulators and the ones that look the most like what I am looking for are around 100$. Either I will have to change my standards for what I want my vibe to look like or by a box of latex gloves (Good idea SD!) and settle for a vibe containing phthalates.

Thanks for your response!

I guess I found out the hard way...jelly toys just don't hold up for me, and condoms are a pain....even cheap ones and they give off an odor that is more objectionable to me then the toy material itself.

There is a version of the Rabbit Habit that is elastomer link
One of the great things about the EF website is you can select rabbit vibrators and then select phthalate free in the safety options and you have four pages of rabbits for consideration.
The weird thing to me is I realize jelly is an unknown material that often but not always contains phthalates, but I thought TPR, TPE, and elastomer were all phthatlate free, but not all of these toys show up when "phthalate free" is selected in the safety options. Am I wrong about the exclusion of phthalates in these materials?

Jim,
It's my understanding that those materials are generally phthalates free, but not all manufacturers state that for those toys. I'm guessing EF wants to err on the side of caution by not assuming those toys are phthalate free unless the manufacturer confirms it.

NS:
I don't use my jelly rabbit. It didn't perform well & I hate it. It stinks so much that even a condom doesn't make me want it.

Thank you for your feedback! I think I will save up to get the royal surfer, it seems like a good option.

I've been eyeing that one too. I can't wait to hear how it works out for you!

I just wanted to say a lot of jelly like the Climax Gems line is phthalates free but is still jelly. They aren't rabbits but there still are some out there. I agree with SD though that with jelly I use one to prevent bacteria from entering the toy.

I am kind of a jelly and phthalates hater. I had a jelly toy that I always used with a condom and after a few months it started to change color and began to become opaque. Yuck! So yeah, I try to avoid jelly and all creepy chemically toys.

Define... "chemically toys"... please. As Cinnamon Chambers mentioned, not all jelly toys contain pthalates.

I'm more worried about the fact that it's porous when I use condoms, since bacteria can fester in the pores after extended use.

I use a condom with my new one. I would not be worried though, I have had jelly products that I haven't used a condom with and they have never given me any kind of problems. I would however use a condom on it if you were to use it with someone else. So that way you are protected in case they have any kind of diseases or infections.

Ha ha ha sorry, I meant toys that smelt chemically. I am pretty much overall concerned (and pretty familiar with the properties) with all the issues related to the poor quality material of jelly toys (phthalates, smell, porosity, can't be sanitized, etc). I usually use condoms on my jelly toy to protect it and myself but I am tired of bothering with it anymore. I want to stay away from jelly even if some jelly vibes are phthalates free. I have a very sensitive pussy so I think I will stick to safer materials.

Pure Vibes by Nasstoys makes dual action vibes out of silicone. They don't look like bunnies, but they are very high quality. Vibratex, a Japanese brand makes some silicone bunnies, expensive but top of the line. California Exotic makes their Decadent series....under 100 dollars, TPR/Elastomer. They are sturdy and have non jamming beads (I have 5 versions, all are fantastic and powerful).
