Use Condoms on Sex ToysOh boy, where do I start? Let’s talk about why condoms and sex toys go together like peanut butter and jelly. (PS: That can be fun too!) Okay, PB&J licking aside, when these two get together, it’s a party without the time-consuming cleanup. And since I’ve got your attention, let’s have a little fun with this blog. Ready?

Use Condoms with Sex Toys: The Perfect Pairing

First off, why on Earth should you be wrapping up your sex toys like they’re about to step outside on a cold winter’s night? Well, as the saying goes, cleanliness is next to godliness, and that couldn’t be truer than in the bedroom (or wherever you get your groove on).

Think of condoms as your sex toy’s superhero cape.

Using condoms on your sex toys will make you the superhero in the bedroom. It keeps things clean, reduces the risk of transferring those naughty bacteria between partners, and makes the post-fun cleanup as easy as peeling off a sock.

Plus, if you share your toys, it’s like giving each partner hygiene protection and peace of mind every time!

Silicone on Silicone? Don’t Do It!

Now, onto a slippery subject – silicone lube and silicone sex toys. It’s like the Romeo and Juliet of the sex accessory world, tragically incompatible yet irresistibly drawn to each other.

Silicone lube on a silicone toy is a big no-no. Why? Because silicone lube can break down the surface of your silicone sex toys over time, leaving them less…toy-like and more like a science experiment gone wrong.

There are several types of lubricants. So, play it safe and stick to water-based lube to keep your sex gadgets in tip-top shape.

Sex Toy Cleanliness is Next to Godliness (and Great Sex)

Speaking of keeping things in pristine condition, sex toys need love and care, too. Like I said before, cleanliness is… well, look at it like this.

Just like you wouldn’t leave dishes piled up in the sink for a week (I hope), don’t neglect your toys after they’ve been busy at work.

Even with condom use, a good wash with mild soap and water or a toy cleaner will keep them ready to go for next time.

Plus, since your sex toys take care of you, you should take care of them, right?

Save Your Time and Your Sex Toys

To wrap this up (pun intended), using condoms on your sex toys is a brilliant move. It’s all about staying squeaky clean and making the clean-up quicker than saying, “Let’s Go Again”.

Whether you’re flying solo or with a co-pilot, think of condoms as the best accessory your sex toys didn’t know they needed.

Final Thoughts

And there you have it, folks. The pairing of condoms and sex toys will actually extend the life of your favorite sex toys. However, consider all the different types of condoms and use one that works best for you.

It’s really a no-brainer when it comes to choosing. Avoid those lubricated with a silicone lube, and as for spermicidal condoms…uh, not really needed in this case. :)

Stay safe, stay clean, and most importantly, have fun exploring all the delightful sensations these two can bring to your bedroom playtime.
