Green Sexy Toys

A few fearless ways to feel a bit more eco-friendly in bed

Ever thought about the toxins in your sex toys? Check the ingredients on your next anal beads purchase. Most sex toys are made with phthalates, a substance used to soften hard plastics like toxin releasing PVCs and provide that jelly feeling you may crave.. Recently there's been quite a stir over the toxicity and health risks of phthalates as they are currently banned by the EU in the manufacturing of children's toys and even more important minute levels of some phthalates have been linked to sperm damage in men. Tony Levine, founder of Big Teaze Toys, says he's made his products -- including the cutely discreet, soft-plastic vibra "I rub my duckie"--is phthalate-free from the start. "While working at Mattel as a toy designer, I was made very aware of the concerns of using only safe materials for children's products," he says. "This training has stuck with me ... We take great pride in using only the materials which meet strict toxicity safety standards for both the U.S. and the E.U."
