It’s an age-old debate, “Are TPE dildos safe?”. Well, I have an opinion on that and heard some interesting views from friends too – so here’s my take on it.
My first thought is that in general, yes, they are safe – as long as you use them correctly and preferably with a lubricating product. Nowadays it’s much easier to purchase a TPE dildo – they’ve become common items, so make sure you buy from a reputable manufacturer and double check the product for any signs of defects or chips. Also, don’t forget to clean it correctly with soap and warm water after each use, which is pretty important – you want to avoid any possible bacteria growth.
The second thing to consider is the materials they usually consist of – they tend to be much softer and more realistic feeling in comparison to silicone dildos. That being said, they can sometimes cause some mild irritation to those with sensitive skin, but nothing that is completely concerning. I would recommend to test out a few samples to gauge how you will react to them.
One of my closest friends even told me that TPE dildos fit better in her hand and sex toys are more comfortable to use in comparison to silicone ones! That was unsurprisingly – I mean, why wouldn’t she be more comfortable with something that is softer? However, she was quick to add that she only experiences all the benefits of TPE dildos when she uses a lubricating product – otherwise it can be a bit uncomfortable.
Lastly, when it comes to storage, TPE dildos usually require a little bit more than silicone dildos. For example, they should be stored out of direct sunlight and away from heat. This is because they’re softer and therefore more susceptible to temperature changes and tears compared to a silicone dildo. But really, this is something that should really be taken care of whatever the type of dildo is!
So, all things considered, TPE dildos are generally very safe if used properly – but everyone has different preferences and needs, so ultimately it boils down to personal preference and your comfort levels.
Now, apart from safety, another important factor is durability. TPE dildos are known to be fairly durable as long as there’s regular cleaning and proper storing, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Not to mention, they tend to last much longer than their silicone counterparts too. In fact, some of mine are still like they were when I purchased them more than a year ago!
Next, let’s talk about cost. It is generally more expensive to purchase a TPE dildo than a silicone one, but that really depends on the quality of the toy and the brand manufacturing it. There are some cheaper TPE dildos out there, but bear in mind that you get what you pay for – so be sure to check the reviews to avoid any dildos made from sub-par materials.
It is also important to remember that TPE dildos should never be used for anal play. Even if they feel softer, they are still not created for that purpose and could cause serious harm. I’ve heard of some people using them anyway, but that’s something I would personally never do – better safe than sorry!
Aside from all that, TPE dildos have a ton of benefits to offer – and the best part is that they’re much easier to find and comparably more affordable than their silicone counterparts. I can say from personal experience that they bring a ton of fun to my bedroom playtime and would recommend them to anyone looking for a high-quality, realistically feeling toy.
Another benefit that many people enjoy is the fact that TPE dildos come in so many different shapes and sizes. You can find anything from tiny bullet shaped ones to more complex designs – so it’s really just a matter of trying out different ones and seeing what works best for you.
And finally, more and more people are realizing that there are a ton of health benefits associated with using a TPE dildo. Not only can they help boost a person’s mood and reduce anxiety and stress, but they also help with muscle relaxation and can induce better sleep and improved digestion.
So, are TPE dildos safe? From my experience, I would say that yes, they certainly are – as long you use it properly and safely, there shouldn’t be any issues. Understanding the material, taking extra care of your dildos and using a lubrication product should be plenty enough for a safe and enjoyable bedroom playtime experience.
