Is It Time To Replace Your Sex Toys?
If you’ve spent any time looking at adult toys online (we’d assume so - you’re on our blog page, after all), you’ll have noticed that the variety of materials, makes and models of all the toys can be incredibly daunting.
While it’s vital to keep your toys clean and stored, even the sturdiest and most durable of adult toys has a lifespan.
If you’re uncertain about whether or not your toys have reached the end of their time, you’ll know by the end of this post!
If you notice your toys have any sort of cut, knick or deteriorating seam, it’s time to say goodbye to your favourite toy.
Any sort of opening like that will signal that there’s an opportunity for bacteria to get inside your adult toy - and possibly inside you.
No, we’re not talking about the superpower.
We’re talking about when your adult toys begin to change shape.
If they’re changing shape and warping, it means that their material durability has started diminishing, and that they’re no longer safe for you to use.
Unlike chameleons, if your adult toy is changing colour or losing its hue, it’s not a good thing.
If the colour is changing, it means that material is wearing down, and erosion can lead to wear-and-tear, meaning fissures - and more points of entry for… you guessed it: bacteria.
The Motor Isn’t Getting Your Motor Running Anymore
Any toy that runs on a battery is going to experience decay - meaning that the motor is going to die out. If your favourite toy’s motor has a mind of its own, only works on one setting, or feels like your first time with somebody inexperienced, it means you need to look for a replacement.
After all, nobody wants to be stuck right on the verge of the O-zone when their toy’s battery runs out.
You’re Not Enjoying It Anymore
If you’re not having a good time, then it goes without saying that you should replace your toy.
There’s nothing wrong with not getting off to a specific adult toy anymore - it’s simply part of the process of figuring out what works for you!
Whether you’re new to the game and learning which toys are best for you (we’ve got a guide for beginners here) or you’re a seasoned veteran, there’s nothing wrong with not having fun with your toy.
If you’re unsure about which toys are best, it’s always a good idea to start with lower-cost toys and work up if you enjoy them.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to determine what’s best for you, and what’s best for your health.
As long as you’re feeling good, then you’re on the right track.
