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!
