Sustainable Sex Life: Can Sex Toys Be Eco-Friendly?
Due to the lockdown, many of us are spending a lot of time at home, in our own company. We have more time for masturbation, and according to the research, we have more solo sex and buy more sex toys as a population.
What’s more, masturbation reduces stress and anxiety that, due to the pandemic, we might more frequently suffer from. Hence, the media has started to recommend it. “You are your safest sex partner,” as NY Times said (as long as you wash your hands!). But is using sex toys as safe for the planet as it is for us?
No More Plastic
Your dildo doesn’t have to be made of plastic. On the market, there are eco-friendly dildos made of glass. They’re crafty, their design is classy, and they can be companions for a lifetime, as glass is more durable than plastic. What’s more, if you decide to buy an eco-friendly one, it can give you new sensations, as you can heat it or cool it down. Check The Adult Toy Shop and get yourself and Mother Earth a present! If you are going to choose a non-glass alternative, consider silicone. Speaking with dildo expert Ally who sells dragon dildos for a living, she recommends you only use high grade silver cured pure silicone and not cheaper quality alternatives which can absorb manufacturing chemicals or other nasties.
Lube It Up
You can exchange your standard lube in a plastic package for a greener and cleaner one. Consider investing in vegan ones. They are edible and biodegradable. Before buying one, check the composition. Be sure that it’s water-based, and the best-case scenario is when it contains vegetable oils. They offer you better moisture, so it means that you wouldn’t suffer from any friction.
Greener Sex Life
Your positive sex life can be greener and organic! As we seek a sustainable lifestyle, why don’t we be environmentally friendly also in the bedroom? That slight change can lower the harm done to our ecosystem and raise the level of your safety and pleasure!
