no, because diseases. the best materials are silicone, surgical grade steel, or pyrex glass (yeah there's pyrex dildos). there are some companies that use latex that aren't terrible, but in general even latex degrades faster than silicone. the site i linked has a list of tests you can run on toys that claim to be silicone to make sure they are, but even if they're not it doesn't inherently mean its not safe. still better to be careful than not.>>8188207
yeah, and new information has been gathered likely since then. we thought Sil-a-gel was safe (found in most if not all Doc Johnson toys) but it turns out Sil-a-gel is not made with silicone at all, and it is actually phthalates from chemical analysis tests done on it.
from DangerousLily, these are found in all jelly toys tested thus far:
you can look up what these do and their dangers on your own. but the fact remains that hundreds if not thousands of people did receive chemical burns, allergic reactions, or exacerbation of/contraction of diseases of the vagina and rectum. jelly dildos are specifically a porous material and will harbor bacteria and grow mold. discoloration is almost always mold growth, and the porous nature means you cannot sterilize the items made from the plastic. since these toys always contain mineral oil or other oil, that oil seeps out and degrades any condoms you put on it, so no, "just put a condom on it" is not going to protect you.
you know what doesn't cause chemical burns, allergic reactions (except in rare specific allergies), or potentially cancer and bacterial infections? properly washed actual silicone toys. you don't wanna be that dude who comes into an anal general thread in three years telling us he did actually get ass cancer or chronic colitis from his toys.
