How to have safer sex with sex toys
The first thing to note is that if you are only using sex toys on your own, and you are cleaning your sex toys properly, then you won’t be at risk of catching STIs because you have no one to catch them from, and any infection/bacteria that might be present on the toy should be eliminated by your rigorous cleaning routine.
If you’re sharing sex toys with someone else, you need to make sure that the material the sex toy is made of is non-porous. Materials like metal, glass, and silicone are non-porous – cleaning these toys with antibacterial soap and warm water should be enough to get rid of any potential bacteria and viruses and thus mean they are safe to share. If your sex toys are porous (like many of the masturbators which are made from soft/squishy ‘flesh-like’ material) then those ones shouldn’t be shared between partners.
So if you’re wondering whether you can catch STDs from sex toys, the answer is yes, but as with all sex (and any activity which involves risk!) you can always mitigate the risks by following safety precautions, like those outlined by Bish in the link above, or by the NHS on their website.
Hopefully I’ve assuaged a few of your worries if you were Googling this question and finding yourself stuck. If you’d like to invest in a few sex toys that are non-porous and easy to clean, my personal recommendations are metal butt plugs, glass dildos and silicone dildos like this gorgeous one from Loving Joy.
