Radiant gems - dildo by Doc Johnson - review by Ava5

Beware of PVC, especially if you are chemically sensitive

This toy may be fine for some people, but I had a reaction so bad that I can't even tell you what possibly might be good about this toy because I never had that chance.
some may have a reaction to the material

useful review
The material, PVC or Polyvinyl chloride, can cause a reaction in some people. My boyfriend bought it for me, and this was before either of us knew anything about different materials or material safety. We've also since learned that I tend to be more sensitive to chemicals than other people.

We started playing with this and I remember smelling a horrible chemical-like smell. As soon as he inserted it in me, I felt a burning feeling. We stopped immediately, but the burning just increased with time, and washing my skin off didn't help. I was soon screaming and crying for hours...which at this point you may just think I am a baby, but this was the most painful reaction I've ever had to anything. My boyfriend felt terrible, and it just killed the night. So for obvious reasons I can't offer any more information about this product because I was much too afraid to ever touch it again. We ended up throwing it away since this material is too porous to be safe to share.

I just wish that I had heard about this before we used it. Since then I've run across a few other people online saying the same thing happened to them. I just think there should be a warning about this type of material, that this reaction is possible. In my opinion, it's worth spending a little more money on a safer material just in case. I don't know if this PVC has cadmium in it, a metal known to cause cancer, but cadmium is used as a stabilizer in most PVC made products. So my personal choice is to go with the safest materials out there. There is a similar product made by Doc Johnson and made from pure silicone here - here

If you are going to take your chances with PVC, I recommend covering it with a condom. PVC is compatible with both water and silicone based lubricant.

    Thanks for the warning. Doc Johnson loves to put antibacterial proprieties to their toys, but this + unsafe material = big bad idea. I had a similar reaction with their Sil-a-gel.

    I had a similar reaction with Doc Johnson's 'ballsy' dildo, the burning felt like someone soaked my toy in hot sauce. Sorry for your bad experience as well. I'm normally not allergic to anything, so I think it might just be the product + the chemicals they use.
