No safety regulations exist in the sex toy industry. The sex toys are sold as novelty items so they do not need to adhere to certain regulations such as reporting the chemicals and materials used in a product. Due to this status, manufacturers are not responsible if their toys are used for any other purpose than being a novelty.[9] Regulations such as REACH[10] do exist, and some sex toys may be compliant to this though, despite that there is no obligation for manufacturers on attaining compliance. A recent (2006) study conducted by the Greenpeace Netherlands office found high level of phthalates in seven out of eight plastic sex toys tested.[11]

A dildo is a device usually designed for penetration of the vagina, mouth, or anus, and is usually solid and phallic in shape. Some expand this definition to include vibrators. Others exclude penis prosthetic aids, which are known as "extensions". Some include penis-shaped items clearly designed with vaginal penetration in mind, even if they are not true approximations of a penis. Some people include devices designed for anal penetration (butt plugs), while others do not. These devices are often used by people of all genders and sexual orientations, for masturbation or for other sexual activity.

If you’re looking to strengthen your Kegel muscles, which are part of your pelvic floor and may help enhance your orgasms, then Ben Wa balls can be your new best friend. These small spheres come in materials like high quality gold, and can both turn you on and help make sex feel even better. This unique, adult workout will tighten your muscles in all the right ways, while the feeling of these balls moving inside you will heighten your sexual pleasure and make your orgasms even better. Unlike most sex toys, Ben Wa Balls don't require batteries or charging time. All you need is the ball size of your choice, some alone time, and maybe a little bit of lube if you'd prefer.
Dildos are obliquely referred to in Saul Bellow's novel The Adventures of Augie March (1953): "....he had brought me along to a bachelor's stag where two naked acrobatic girls did stunts with false tools".[25] A dildo called Steely Dan III from Yokohama appears in the William S. Burroughs novel The Naked Lunch (1959).[26][27] The rock band Steely Dan took their name from it.
Having a vibrator you can use during sex is a great trick to have up your sleeve: not only does it make orgasming during intercourse a lot easier on nights when you need extra help, but it also feels great for the dude you might be worried about freaking out. Here's why: You're even tighter down there while using a toy (because you're so turned on) and your vag itself is lightly vibrating, meaning he gets to contact a great second-hand high. Instead of worrying about what guys might think about using a sex toy in bed, we should probably be more concerned about them becoming even more addicted to having sex with us. (Seriously. It will probably blow his mind a little, in my experience.) Sex Toys
