Buying anything online tends to offer you a wider variety of choices and frequently a better price, but perhaps less convenient service. If your toy is defective, you will probably have to mail it back to the vendor which takes time. ...Read more

Can HIV or STD live on a sex toy? bought it online thru Adam&eve.com,package was closed but not sealed, now worried since they accept returns.

No risk, don't worry: First, it is exceedingly unlikely that the company would repackage potentialy used toys without first sterilizing them. But why not call them and ask for reassurance? Second, HIV and all STD germs die when they dry out, so even if somehow a toy hadn't been cleaned, there would be no risk without visible contamination with wet fluids or blood. ...Read more

I got a sex toy online "new" and I used it. I now think it may have been used before me. Would syphilis or any STDs survive long enough to infect me?

I got a sex toy online "new" and I used it. I now think it may have been used before me. Would syphilis or any STDs survive long enough to infect me?

No risk, no worries: First, the chance a vendor would re-sell a used sex toy seems low. Even if re-sold, the chance the vendor would not clean it probably is even lower. Finally, drying kills all STD viruses and bacteria, which would therefore not survive. Nobody ever caught syphilis, HIV, or any other STD in this way. No worries at all. ...Read more

Why do some people enjoy sex toys?

Why do some people enjoy sex toys?

Everyone's different: Everyone is different. Some enjoy sex toys while others don't. Some like various positions while others like just one. Once weekly is enough for some but once daily isn't enough for others. The point is that everyone is different. The difficulty is in finding a "perfect" match w/your partner. If that's not possible, know that your partner shouldn't make you feel guilty for being different. ...Read more

I accidentally used a sex toy with mold on it what should I do?

Clean and observe: This is one of the rare instances where I may actually recommend a douche to remove spores from the vaginal area. Then soak in tub or shower using a handheld showerhead to thoroughly rinse the area. Finally, close observation - if you start having significant irritation or discharge, see your doctor right away. If symptom free after a couple of days, you are likely in the clear. ...Read more

How long does syphilis live on an object (like a sex toy)?

How long does syphilis live on an object (like a sex toy)?

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
