Metal toys are a popular choice with many users, and for a reason. These toys offer numerous advantages no other toy material can bring. Almost all types of adult toys can be made of metal, such as dildos, butt plugs and nipple teasers. Some types of toys are predominately made of metal, such as penis plugs and urethral sounds. There are many popular metal materials for sex toys: surgical steel, aluminum, even precious metals.
Metal toys are typically very smooth so they are easy to insert and use. The smooth exterior requires very little lube to be used in order to feel comfortable. Because of the polished, smooth exterior, metal toys feel comfortable despite their hard surface.
Another good thing about metal toys is that they are very sturdy, which means they provide strong, intense stimulation. They can press all the right spots and you are guaranteed to feel it. If a toy is textured deep, intense stimulation is guaranteed.
Metal toys are very durable, so it’s another advantage. They can’t be broken easily and they don’t tear up. They can be used over and over again for very intense penetration and they will stay as good as new.
Finally, metal toys are easy to clean and sanitize. Not only that, but you will always know that your toys are fully sanitized and that no bacteria and harmful agents are left because this material can be fully sanitized even in home conditions.
How to Sanitize Metal Toys
A great thing about metal is that it’s non-porous, so it’s easy to clean. There are some things to consider, though. First of all, avoid strong rinse agents because many of them are bad for some metals. Also, don’t use jewelry cleansers for sanitizing your metal toys.
Also, remember never to use any sharp object to clean your metal toys because they can damage the metal exterior.
The best and safest way to clean your metal toys is to boil them in water. It is a quick, safe solution for sanitizing your toys. Keep them in boiled water for about 5 minutes, then take them out. Wipe them out and they are ready to use. For maximum effect, you may also clean them with alcohol just before the use.
Some people wash your toys with gentle anti-bacterial soap and water. You may also use specialized sex toy cleaners, but make sure that they are suitable to be used on metal.
