Second Hand Sex Toys

Written by  Mar 31, 2019

Would you consider using a second hand body-safe sex toy afer it has been sterilised?

I am interested in your opinion. As a sex toy reviewer, it is inevitable that I have ended up with lots and lots of sex toys. I don't have the time to enjoy them all as I am always getting new ones in to review.

Storing them all is becoming a bit of a problem, and I need a good old fashioned clear out.

Now the thought of throwing out perfectly useable sex toys is something that doesn't sit right with me. I would rather someone else enjoy them.

I am considering selling on body-safe sex toys that can be effectively sterilised so that others can enjoy them at silly prices. I can then use the money to review even more sex toys, so it's a bit of a win-win situation.

So my question is would you use a second-hand sex toy made out of body-safe materials?

    I would absolutely re-use a sex toy as long as it is made of a non porous material such as silicon.

    The good thing now is that there are some really good anti bacterial cleaners around that mean you can be sure they are safe.

    and lastly .. but definitely not least important ... is knowing WHO used them. I would never buy a toy from someone I didnt think was as fastidious about cleanliness as i was ... and I know you are.

    I know exactly what you mean, I'd only trust something known to be genuinely made from silicone or other non-porous materials like Glass, Metal or Ceramics.

    You also highlight a very valid point, knowing where you are getting something second hand and their attention to cleanliness is a big concern. I have several silicone toys that I have acquired from other bloggers but I'd never buy something from a carrier bag around the back of a pub for instance.

    I hope that you are safe and well in these worrying times.

    I know this is several years tardy but I only just discovered you yesterday (my life was lacking until then as you are amazing)

    But as someone who has generously been gifted toys over the years from friends 100% years. Provided it had all of the trust of due diligence and knowledge of how to sterilise different materials & types of toys..

    Already in a day of deep diving into your really thorough reviews, seeing how you engage with your community, and that you fabricate your own toys I can confidently say the trust level would be there.

    Also the more specific or deep you go into play the more expensive everything becomes which can be challenging in a space where both quality is especially important and facets of the kink tribe can lean towards elitism.

    I had all my latex gear and toys/equipment stolen about 8 years ago and I have only just started to feel up to the task of rebuilding.

    Which is why you have a new fan, not all review sites are to be trusted ?

    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you for your kind words, I am sorry to hear about you having all of your kit stolen years ago. That must have been devastating both in terms of the financial aspect of it but more importantly the emotional aspect too. I hope that you manage to build up a collection that is even better than your original.

    I know what you mean about the elitism crowd, I ignore them preferring to relate to people who are more down-to-earth in their outlook toward others.

    I hope you enjoy the reviews and articles here and thank you for taking the time to comment, it is very much appreciated.
