Here at Burlesque Toy Shop, we are committed to making sure that all of the toys we sell are 100% safe for women’s (and men’s) bodies. Unfortunately, there are lots of toys out there that don’t meet these standards! The good folks at The Smitten Kitten started the Bad Vibes Project in 2005 to raise awareness about toxic ingredients found in many sex toys. Here are some pictures of what they refer to as their TOXIC TOY JARS. Here is their explanation:
"We threw a bunch of jelly toys (vibrators, dildos and masturbation sleeves) into some glass jars, sealed them, and then just left them alone. This is what happened.
See all that clear fluid at the bottom? That’s the product of the ongoing chemical reaction that happens when PVC and phthalates (or other toxic plasticizing chemicals) hang out inside a jelly toy.”
The jars are really gross, and definitely a good reminder that jelly toys are NOT safe for bodies, which is why we don’t carry any here at Burlesque!
