A year ago I felt bowel perforation symptoms for 2 days after using anal toys. My irksome bowels beg the question: did I really hurt my colon or anus?
?? Perforation??: If you had bowel perforation that went untreated you would not survive! If you scratched/scraped/cut some of the inner surfaces in your rectal area it obviously healed to some degree but may have left some scarred tissue. If you cut the muscles within the anus, it could cause a stricture or a difficult to close outlet. A simple rectal exam by your doc could provide better info & help you improve. ...Read more
Hi there. I have recently found out that I have a small inguinal hernia. Would that interfere if I used anal sex toys?
How harmful is anal sex? My partner likes it, it hurts me sometimes but it's not major. Should we stop or do it once in a while? What about sex toys?
Anal Sex: First. If done gently and patiently there is no risk with anal sex. It may best noted that you may want to read some sexual guides such as "the joy of sex" to get some tips on how to learn to enjoy this better. The only worries with anal sex or sex toys is infection. So, making sure the toys are well cleaned between episodes. But, get a guide and learn how to experiment a bit and to enjoy. ...Read more

Can gonorrhoea spread by masterbating with sex toys by myself? I.e transferring the infection from my anus to my penis? I was treated 2 weeks ago
Very unlikely: If you have gonorrhea at one site, such as urethra (penis) or rectum, then you might self transmit to another site. The sex toy would have to go immediately from the infected site to the uninfected one, and would have to go inside (maybe difficult for the penis). But of course there is no risk of not already infected somewhere. Any such risk ended within a few hours of correct treatment. ...Read more
Every time after I masturbate I bleed little in the anus. I do not play with my anus at all. I just masturbate with my vagina using finger or a toy.
Anal sphincter: The muscle around the anus (sphincter) is probably being rubbed when you place your finger or toy inside the vagina. The vagina and anus are very close together and if there is a external hemorrhoid present, injury is even more likely. ...Read more
How is HPV transmitted? If it can only be by sex what else could this be? 4months ago my 2 1/2year old daughter shoved a toy in her diaper and cut her butt crack about a half inch above her anus. 2 weeks later I noticed it was healing wrong, looked like e
Possible scar: Hpv is transmitted sexually but should not have anything to do with the described scenario. Part of the question is missing but sounds like the area that was cut looks strange. Aside from a wound that has not healed which is not likely she may have formed a keloid which is a very raised scar and a cosmetic problem only. An examination by medical provider can easily determine if this is the case. ...Read more

Depends: Very often children end up more interested in simple household items or silly things like empty water bottles than they are the expensive toys we buy them. This is nothing to be concerned about as long as your baby is interested in exploring her environment and playing with the objects around her.

No: It looks like albolene is a moisturizer/cleanser. You should use appropriate "personal" lubricants for toys or sex. For most toys (especially silicone ones), a water based lube is recommended. A silicone based lube may also cause damage to condoms (not a good thing!). A good water based lube is slippery stuff which can be found on-line. ...Read more
Interactive: Toys that require some imagination and creativity are best at this age. Building blocks, toy cars and trucks, xylophones, etc are all great. You can even begin to give them paper and markers to practice scribbling. Play fun music in the background and let your child dance around the room. Allow them lots of unlimited time outdoors running around. Sing songs and read books together. ...Read more
The box is fine: For a 10 mo old, pretty much anything they can chew on, rattle, or bang should be fine. In 3-4 mo they'll be into action/ reaction, but for now, it's all about sensory. Play gyms, things to climb on, grab, chew on, are perfect. ...Read more
Limited choices: Unfortunately, there are few toys developed specifically for autistics (but I am aware of one great idea that is in development). You have to use toys/tools/devices designed for the "regular" population. Just competence or even mastery with a toy is not enough. The goal should be to encourage interaction with others & to feel/express emotionally. ...Read more
Modify behavior: Children are often possessive of toys, they often grab them from others. Praise specific sharing behaviors with a kind comment. When undesirable behaviors are seen, give a time out to the 'grabber'; if the behavior continues separate your children or give the toy a time out. Often changing the response helps improve the behavior. Try not to reward any loud protestations from either child. ...Read more

Probably not at all: Drying kills syphilis bacteria (and probably all other STDs), and nobody has been reported to have caught syphilis through sex toys, only by direct sexual exposure. Of course sex toys should be cleaned between use by different persons, but failure to do so probably still is low risk as long as enough time has passed for fluids on the device to have dried up. ...Read more

Caution with "toys": I am told most adult toys are made of rubber (latex) or synthetic substitutes. These materials directly or during processing can become contact dermatitis sensitizing agents. Irritation of mucous membranes (body cavity linings) is an excellent way to induce sensitization to these chemicals. Some people they could have immediate hypersensitivity. Reactions range from mild rash to severe anaphylaxis. ...Read more

Yes: Aside from lead, there occasionally are other toxic substances that can be on toys and be harmful if enough substance is swallowed by a child (cadmium is a toxic substance that has been found in some toys). For kids still putting toys in their mouths, it may be safest to buy toys that don't have metal parts or painted surfaces. Be sure toys have no parts that can come off and choke children. ...Read more

If you can do it without impacting "the real thing", it is not dangerous. ...Read more
