Ah, dildos… the saving grace of many lonely nights. Recently, a friend of mine asked me if I knew whether or not dildos lose color over time. So, naturally, I decided I had to do some research and find out for myself!
To begin, I scoured the web in an attempt to gather information about this curious topic. I didn’t expect to find much relevant information, as this topic isn’t something people typically talk about… and boy, was I wrong!
It turns out that yes, dildos do in fact lose their color over time. Most dildos that are made from silicone, plastic, or rubber tend to lose some of their pigment as their materials age. This isn’t necessarily something to worry about- depending on the material, dildos are placed through multiple cleaning processes before they’re shipped off to their (hopefully) proud owners.
I remember being so surprised when I saw just how many different types of dildos were available! There were dildos made of glass, steel, silicone, and even some that had different kinds of textures. Of course, the only dildos that are likely to lose some pigment are the ones made from materials like rubber, plastic, or silicon. Additionally, when storing your dildo, it’s important to avoid leaving it in a place that’s exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
What I found out amongst my research was the fact that some people actually enjoy the change in color. It’s something that’s similar to a comfortable pair of jeans; as they age, the color fades and you still find them attractive. As funny as it may sound, it’s quite common.
So, I asked myself what other effects may come with aging and using dildos and I’ve come to the conclusion that proper storage and usage are the best tips that can be given in order to ensure that your dildo doesn’t become too damaged or lose color.
Creating Your Own Dildo
For those looking to make their own dildos, I suggest you do your research and double-check the information you’re being given. Unfortunately, not all DIY projects turn out as planned, so it’s best to double-check the materials you’re using to make sure that they’re compatible. Additionally, creating a dildo can take some time.
For the majority of people, it’s much easier and faster to purchase a dildo online or from a store. Plus, with all the different types of dildos now available, you’re sure to find one that suits your needs.
Dildo Care and Maintenance
For those of us already in possession of a dildo, the best way to ensure that it lasts for a long time and doesn’t lose any of its pigment is by taking care of it. This means cleansing your dildo after every use, and storing it in a clean, cool, and draped place.
Additionally, some dildo materials require the use of a special type of lubricant in order to prevent any unwanted damage or discoloration. Something important to note is that you should never use oil-based lubricants on dildos made of silicone or rubber as this could cause significant damage.
A Few Final Words
So, in conclusion, yes, dildos do lose color over time. Whether this effect is something you’re okay with or not depends entirely on you.
Given the fact that dildos are typically made from materials like silicone, plastic, and rubber, it’s important to take good care of them in order to prevent any unwanted changes in color. This means cleaning and properly storing your dildo in a cool and clean place. Additionally, be sure to use a compatible lubricant if needed, and avoid exposing your dildo to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Lastly, if you’re still unsure about buying a dildo, you could always try making your own! However, I would suggest doing some research beforehand and to double-check the information you’re being given so that you create a top-notch dildo.
