Sex toys are items that should be chosen with extreme caution. After all, the most sensitive areas of our body are in contact with them, and therefore it is important that both their “insides” (motor or magnets) and the coating are safe.
medical grade silicone
Probably, about 80% of modern high-quality sex toys are covered with this material. Firstly, it is very pleasant to the touch: delicate and velvety, it will not cause any discomfort when in contact with the genitals.
It is hypoallergenic and quickly acquires body temperature. Due to the fact that silicone is not porous, it is easy to clean and there is no threat that flocks of bacteria will settle on it.

Adele and other stars who do not communicate with their parents
In 2017, at the Grammy Awards, singer Adele gave a speech to her agent. “We have been together for ten years,” said Adele. And I love you like a father. I don’t love my real father, that’s the point. So I love you the way I could love my father.” Thus, the whole world became aware of the singer’s relationship with her parent, or rather, the absence of these relationships. Why the relationship between father and daughter did not work out is unknown, the singer evades all questions from journalists about this.
It is being certified, which means that you can be calm for its quality. Almost everything is made from medical silicone, from vibrators to intimate muscle trainers and artificial vaginas. By the way, not only sex toys are made from it, but also condoms, catheters, implants and special pads and gels for scar treatment.
Silicone is also good because it offers a rich palette of colors.
CyberSkin is a material that at one time literally turned the world of the sex industry upside down. It is a polymer that feels like real human skin to the touch. It is soft and plastic, but at the same time retains elasticity. It was invented, by the way, by NASA engineers.
Realistic dildos are usually made from cyberskin, but there are also vibrators, and “bullets”, and vibrating eggs – the material is universal. Its drawback is that cyberskin is porous and therefore requires very thorough cleaning. After washing, it must be completely dried, and it is also advisable to powder it with talc to preserve the texture of the device.
A lot of sex toys are made of plastic – as a rule, these are “vibration bullets”, “butterflies” and other rounded devices. Plastic isn’t stretchy, but it’s smooth, so it’s going to feel completely different than toys with a more “soft” nature. More intense.
Plastic is easy to clean and can be used with any lubricant. Among other things, toys made of plastic are usually the cheapest. But plastic toys are “rustic”, they will not give a wide range of sensations, they will not surprise with their texture, but they are quite suitable as a first toy.
There are exceptions – these are high-tech devices with rotary mechanisms or non-standard shapes. The price of these gizmos may not be so discreet.
PVC, gel and thermoplastic rubber
Where do we go without the good old rubber. You’ve probably seen gel sex toys too – they’re flashy pinks and blues, translucent, and they look like they’re made from dead jellyfish or baby jelly. PVC dildos are realistic, in the shape of real skin-colored members, with streaks and veins for a closer resemblance to the real one.
As a rule, the price of these toys is low, which makes them a good option for the first time. The materials of the products are porous, so they must be cleaned very carefully with antibacterial agents. Also, anal plugs are often made from them.
We approach the most interesting – natural materials. Metal toys are weighty, heavy – you can “kill” like that, but they are smooth, cool, and you need to try very hard to break them. I immediately recall the joke about “one broke, the other lost”, but this will not work with these devices.
Usually, metal products are not cheap, as they are classified as luxury toys. Of course, you have to be a connoisseur. Metal usually stays cool for a long time, it is very hard, does not change shape, so it’s a matter of taste – some people prefer inflexible toys.
As a rule, they make anal plugs, balls for training intimate muscles, less often – dildos. Toys are made of steel, anodized aluminum and other metals, often decorated with precious stones or jewelry.
Not many brands make metal sex toys: njoy, Pipedream, ToyFa and a few others.
Glass sex toys resemble a real work of art, they are so elegant. Much lighter in weight than metal, but also smooth and hard. However, some toys are made with ribbed surfaces for a thrill. Glass toys usually follow the anatomical shape of the penis, but there are also more original designer items.
Despite the fact that such devices are usually made of heavy-duty glass, it is still very scary that the toy will shatter into fragments and you will cut yourself.
As for brands, the relatively young brand Sexus deserves attention: they have beautiful toys made of transparent glass with original patterns. The American company Glas has established itself in the market as a manufacturer of glass toys. Among their dildos there are also very original forms – for example, this dildo in the form of a pepper, mi-mi-mi.
One of the most original materials for making sex toys, bringing a spiritual dimension to sex or masturbation. This is a very small market segment targeted at those who view sexual pleasure as more than just a physical response. Such toys are good for those who practice mindfulness and meditation.
One of the most popular manufacturers of stone dildos is the Chukrubs brand, which makes toys out of crystals. On the Russian-speaking market, there is Onna, the brainchild of Lena and Adela, who made “toys” from ornamental stones exclusively for the pleasure of women.
