Blisstree reports that over 2 dozen U.S. States are working towards making sex toys BPA. free. If you’ve heard of BPA it’s probably because it’s been illegal to make children’s toys containing it for years. The reason? BPA breaks down and can become toxix in the blood stream. As yourself what’s a quicker route to the bloodstream, a child’s mouth, or the parts of your body you might stick a sex toy in?
And the U.S. isn’t the only place such concerns are being raised. Over in Germany the Green Party are calling on the government to pass regulations governing sex toys of the sort that govern children’s toys, according to Spiegel Online.
Here in Vancouver such concerns have been being raised for years – not by government, but by sex shop Womyn’sWare which has not only committed to carrying safe sex toys in their shop, but which has also been instrumental in getting the word out about unsafe ones.
So be aware of what your sex toys are made of, and if it’s not a “safer sex” toy then either stick a condom on it before sticking it in someone, or better yet stick it in the trash!
