Q: I’ve heard that some toys are safer than others. How do I know which are okay?

Hailey says...
The problems stem from phthalates—chemicals added to plastic products to make them soft and pliable—which are present in an alarming number of sex toys. Phthal-ates can enter the body through mucous membranes and have been shown to cause liver damage and tumours in laboratory tests. Until there is some kind of legislation around sex-toy safety in Canada, the best way to protect yourself is to buy from responsible vendors who employ well-educated staff. Phthalate-free toys are available; ask your neighbourhood sex shop to stock them if they don’t already.
