What's the worst toy advice you've heard/received?

When I saw someone say they were spraying Febreze on a porous jelly toy, it got my mind churning. I personally think that it's a bad idea because of the potential for irritation, but that might just be me.

As far as the worst thing I've heard someone tell me, it's got to be that toys don't need to be washed before or after using. And this was someone who stored them in the couch cushions!

Anyone else care to share?

I actually do not have any horror stories like that, and only wanted to comment.

Was that actually written in a review on this site? That is soooo nasty. And yet it's so bad, almost comical, and I'm trying not to laugh.

I never really got horror story advice, but I was told that jelly was the safest material. So, that's obviously false...

Yes. It was someone applying to be an advanced reviewer, and I pointed out spraying a toy, especially jelly ones with Febreze is a bad bad idea.

It wasn't advice to me, but I saw it written in a review quite some time ago. It was a review for a UR3 dildo and the reviewer said they used it anally, vaginally and orally, with no mention of condoms or cleaning. I'm a bit nauseous thinking about it again.

As long as they did it in the right order and then tossed it in the trash at the end...

I didn't think so either, but I was throwing it out there because there is a way to do things semi-safe, but condom use would have been a VERY good thing to mention.

Yeah, I know a lot of people think that the whole flared base thing is being "overly cautious" but even if that's your personal belief I think it's a little irresponsible to put on a review. Actually, I think it's just kind of bad advice even if it's not for a review. It's one thing to practice something yourself and another to recommend it to someone else...

"If anal play hurts, just keep going. It's like having vaginal sex for the first time, you just have to push through the pain, and it will get better. If you're one of those super-sensitive girls, use a desensitizing lube, it'll make it feel better!"

Thank goodness I didn't try to follow this advice with anything larger than an Aneros Peridise. And for once, I'm glad I'm so stubborn that I absolutely refused to make my life "easier" with desensitizing lubes!

Ditto to the "no flange = still safe" comments. That's NOT something you just go around telling people, regardless of what you do in your free time. For most people, it's just a bad idea.

It wasn't for a toy, but on Bad Dragon someone suggested a pinch of baking soda added to the lube when lubing up a toy for anal. That just seems like so many kinds of wrong to me.

I've never received any toy advice...

Actually, it's very sound advice. Baking soda acts as a pH buffer - if the pH of a fluid isn't balanced right, it can cause a mild burning sensation in mucus membranes like those in the butt. It also acts as an odor absorber. On top of that, it thins mucus a bit (in some people, thick, slightly dried mucus like that the butt produces can end up a bit sticky and resistive during anal play; hooray for gliding!). And it helps keep any fungi from getting holed away back there and growing. The small amount of baking soda is very gentle, too. (Sinus rinses, which are used in the sinus cavity against some very delicate mucus membranes, often use a similar amount of baking soda)

So, a tiny amount of baking soda in your anal lube isn't an awful idea. It's not necessary by any means, but it may help with a few different things, and as long as you don't overdo it, it won't hurt you.

Guilty as charged.
Actually, I always try to be very careful and clear when presenting this in my reviews so that people understand that it is something to be careful about and there are safer ways to carry it out

Some of the lube substitutes I've heard suggested were just plain awful, especially since everything I'll list was suggested at some point for vaginal play.

Vaseline. Butter. Crisco. Olive oil. Shaving cream. Hair conditioner. Sweat. Toothpaste. Liquid medication. Candle wax. Soap. Laundry Detergent.

The only one I ever tried, as a desperate and naive young teen, was hair conditioner. It was rather unpleasant afterward. No matter how little I knew about lube, the rest just sounded creepy and dangerous. Toothpaste? Laundry detergent? MEDICATION?!

Well, if it was Robitussin used, then I'm sure it would have been a good time for all. LOL. That is so gross to even consider.

Hahah I'll bet. Funny as it sounds, the very thought has my poor vagina crying in fear.

*bows* I live but to serve.

You know, a paste of baking soda and water might be a good way to de-stinkify anal toys... must look into this. *ponder ponder ponder*

What about Cyberskin? Because Cyberskin, ugh, it smells rancid.

I don't have any cyberskin, so I couldn't test it out. Logically, if the smell is part of the material, it probably won't go away no matter what you do. If it's something leeching out of the material (yuck!), deodorizing it somehow might be a temporary fix so you don't smell it while you're using it, but it'll just keep leeching out over the long term. If it's a smell that it's picked up, then the baking soda idea might actually work. It's just an idea, I haven't had a chance to test it, but feel free to try! (no guarantees to what it will or won't do to delicate materials, though. Baking soda's gentle, but some things are just freakishly sensitive)

Cyberskin, I'm not sure of. It's a fairly sensitive material. I'll try it out on a bit of it though, to see if it works. That's why I've been wanting to try Vixskin to see if its feel is as realistic as cyberskin, because it lacks the horrid scent.

I read that review, and the reviewer was not suggesting that you use Febreze to clean the toy itself. I know the writing was a bit confusing, but what they meant was that they use Febreze to cover up the odor that it left in the air and on the bedding.

Oh man I'm allergic to Robitussin, so the thought of having that slathered down in my lady garden just makes me cringe in the worst way. Yuck!

Oh, don't get me wrong, the writing was confusing. I just thought people should know that she wasn't saying to clean toys with Febreze. It is an interesting topic... worst sex advice given. That being said, if you are gonna call some one out in the forums, you should at least be sure about what you are complaining about. Also, you could have written the reviewer a private message asking what they meant. Just sayin....
