What would you answer if someone asked you to explain the meaning of the term “sex toy“? For a man’s sex toy, the material of choice is silicone, and there are many good reasons for this. It is possible that it will last for years if it is used often and cleaned properly (just don’t drop it!). Toys that are constructed from silicone may be placed in the microwave, dishwasher, or even the microwave without the risk of their melting, cracking, or otherwise changing shape. Although it seems like a solid material, silicone can be molded into almost any shape.
