Why Choose a Silicone Dildo?

Silicone is considered to be the best dildo material, bar none. It's the dildo-connoisseur's choice for its look and feel and also for its safety and ease of care.

A Silicone Dildo is Safe

An odourless, non toxic and hypo-allergenic material containing no phthalates or latex, silicone is THE choice if you are allergic to, or have concerns about, other dildo materials.

It's super easy to clean and you can even to sterilize a silicone dildo by boiling it for 3 minutes or washing it in the top rack of a dishwasher!

Ease of cleaning isn't just about sex toy safety for you. If  you plan to share your dildo with a partner, or are looking for an anal dildo for solo or pegging play, a silicone dildo  is the ultimate choice,  because of this ability to fully sterilize.

A Silicone Dildo Feels Sensual

A silicone dildo feels warm, smooth and dry, not cold or clammy like rubber or jelly dildos. Whilst firm and sleek, it feels springy and flexible, unlike steel dildos or glass dildos, which are hard and rigid

Silicone is a non-porous material, neither disclosing or absorbing any substance.

This means it doesn't soak up any of your natural juices and also holds lubricant well on the surface - a small amount of lube on a silicone dildo goes a long way!

Whilst soft to the touch, silicone is quite a dense material so it transmits vibration well. Owning a vibrating silicone dildo means you've got a dildo AND a vibrator in one, giving you the added thrills on top of the penetrative pleasures your dildo bestows...

A Silicone Dildo Lasts

Silicone is practically indestructible, unless attacked by something sharp. It never breaks down or degrades.

This is fab for a committed, long-term relationship with your dildo, but not great environmentally if it's just a one night stand.

A dildo made from silicone is an investment and will provide years of pleasure if it's take care of properly.

Although incredibly durable, once torn silicone can split, so keep your dildo away from sharp edges, teeth and curious pets!

Why Silicone Dildos Cost More

Silicone is an costly raw material and producers of pure silicone dildos tend to be, like ourselves, small, specialist manufacturers, which is why silicone dildos are more expensive than mass-produced dildos from China.

A silicone dildo is the best dildo you can buy,  but it IS quite an investment.

 

Silicone Toys & Lube

We advise to use only water-based lube on all toys made from silicone, as  the two silicones can react together and, over time, effect the smooth surface of the dildo.

We've tested this ourselves, after a silicone lubricant manufacturer tried to convince us that their lubricant was safe to use on silicone sex toys.

It was hardly highly-scientific, but we submerged a silicone dildo in silicone lube for a length of time to see for ourselves what the outcome would be. Small pitting started to appear on the surface.

Of course it would take many, many hours ( days.. week...s?) of play to simulate this 'experiment' within a real-life example, but why take the risk, we say.
