Feb 12, 2024

So you're getting frisky and saving the planet at the same time? Well, aren't you the full eco-warrior package! If you've ever thought your love life could do with a bit of a green makeover, you're in the right place.

Eco-friendly sex toys are the latest trend for those who like their pleasure with a side of sustainability. No, it's not as kinky as it sounds, but it's definitely more fun than recycling.

Benefits of Eco-Friendly Sex Toys

Picture this: you're laid out on your organic hemp bedsheets. The faint scent of natural soy wax candles is wafting through the room. But hold on, what's that you've got in your hand? Is it, dare we say, an eco-friendly sex toy? Now isn't that the cherry on your sustainable cake!

Let's get down to business. Why should you be interested in these toys?

Well, my friend, for starters, eco-friendly sex toys are body-safe. Most of these enjoyable little gadgets are made from silicone, glass, or stainless steel. Now, don't get startled by the last two! These materials are super safe, easy to clean, and guess what? They last a long time! Yay! No more wasting cash on cheap thrill-givers that break down before you can finish the line, "it's not you, it's me."

Next up is the fact that they are free from harmful chemicals or toxins. Now all of us environmental warriors know that toxins are the Sneaky Sams of the chemical world. They're in everything! But not in your green sex toys. No sir, they ain't there! This means no irritation or allergic reactions. Your private parts will be celebrating!

Oh, and let's not forget about the durability! Unlike your favourite chocolate bar, these toys aren't here for a good time; they're here for a long time! And you know what they say: the longer, the better! (Don't quote us out of context here)

What about the battery life? Ain't nothing more frustrating than your favourite toy giving up the ghost at that crucial moment! Well, eco-friendly sex toys laugh in the face of weak battery life! Many are rechargeable or come with solar power options. Yes, you heard it right, solar-powered! Your bits and pieces enjoying a sustainable party while the sun provides the power. Now isn't that something?

Materials Used in Eco-Friendly Sex Toys

Moving on, let's delve into the materials that go into eco-friendly sex toys. Now, you're familiar with the three R’s - reduce, reuse, recycle, right? But let's add a little spice to it - the big 'S' - Silicone.

Silicone: A Sex Toy's Best Friend

Your typical eco-friendly sex toy is riding high on the silicone wave. It's simple - silicone's sturdy, body-safe, and always up for a little clean-up. No questionable chemicals or allergens here, mate.

While we can get all technical about 'medical grade' and 'platinum cure', let's keep it simple. Just look for toys labelled 100% pure silicone to ensure you're getting the cream of the crop.

Hard Bodies: Glass and Stainless Steel

For the more adventurous, step aside, silicone. Here come the hard bodies - glass and stainless steel. It's like comparing a wee pup to a full-grown direwolf. Different but both equally fun.

Glass toys are best known for their slick and smooth surface, offering a unique sensation. Plus, they're pretty. Yes, 'pretty' - and who can resist that?

On the other hand, stainless steel toys come with the 'Oomph!' factor. They're heavier than their silicone and glass counterparts, providing a distinct sensation.

Power That Doesn't Cost the Earth

Running out of juice isn't great, whether we’re talking about your mobile or your favourite brightly coloured bedside buddy. But don't fret; even with power sources, eco-friendly is the way to go. Say hello to rechargeable or solar-powered toys.

Not only do these bad boys reduce waste from single-use batteries, but they also last longer for extended sessions of fun. And who wouldn't want that?

Alright, let's not beat around the bush any longer. It's time to welcome eco-friendly materials into the steamy world of sex toys. Though, we bet you never thought you'd be thinking this deeply about what your sex toys are made of! But here we are. Now go on, continue with your eco-sexy journey. Be a bright, clean, and green machine in every sense of the phrase. Remember - every little bit counts. So, let's do our bit, one eco-friendly orgasm at a time.

Different Types of Eco-Friendly Sex Toys

Buckle up! We're diving into the energising pond of eco-friendly sex toys. You'll no longer need to pack your bags due to guilt trips from harming Mother Nature. Instead, you'll be packing your drawers with eco-friendly goodies!

Firstly, we've got the silicone toys. A superhero in the kingdom of sex toys, bacteria fears them! That's because they're non-porous, which makes them a breeze to clean. On top of that, these toys are smooth, flexible, and soft to touch (or wherever else you prefer). Some might even say it feels like a gentle tickle from a feather... only much better.

Mend your broken heart, glass toys are not fragile darlings. Instead, they're the ‘tough love’ kind. They will not shatter nor break unless you've got some sort of superpower. These glass beauties can be either cool or warm, just like your ex, but way more pleasurable and definitely less disappointing.

Hmmm, what else? Oh yes, the stainless-steel toys. Do remember that big, chunky kitchen spatula your mum uses to flip pancakes? Well, thankfully, stainless steel toys have nothing to do with kitchen utensils! These shiny little rascals are body-friendly, easy to clean and provide a distinct sensation which can't be matched.

And lastly, here's a fun fact for you. We've got our rechargeable and solar-powered toys. Earth-friendly and packed with superpower. Next time when you bask under the sun at the beach, chuck in your solar-powered toy to charge. Yeah sure, you're welcome!

It's never been easier to get to the 'Big O' while showing love for our dear old planet. Just remember - your choice can make a ripple in our eco-system. With these brilliant alternatives, who needs the old, planet-harming choices anyway?

How to Choose the Right Eco-Friendly Sex Toy

Hang on, you! Before you dash off to buy eco-friendly sex toys, please slow down and have a little gander at this guide. I promise you it ain't a snooze.

First off, know your material. We've spoken about silicone, glass, and stainless steel. Sure they're all eco-friendly, but they each have their own perks.

  • Silicone is your best mate if you need durability and simplicity. Think about the Beatles of sex toys. They've stood the test of time, and they're easy to clean. You don't have to deal it too delicately. Chuck it in a pot of boiling water (oi! after you're done with it, obviously) and bam, good as new!
  • Glass sex toys, on the other hand, are more versatile. Translucent, clear as crystal, these are the chameleons of the sex toy world. Worried about the glass breaking? Don't be. These aren't your grandma's fine china. They're made of borosilicate glass, which can withstand a bit of rough and tumble.
  • stainless steel. These toys can deliver a unique sensation. Cold to the touch with a bit of weight, they're something different alright. For folks in search of novelty or those with a taste for posh stuff, steel's the real deal.

Be sure to acknowledge that material isn't everything. Think about the power source too. Go for rechargeable toys. Or better yet, why not try something solar-powered? In addition to being eco-friendly, I'm sure you'll have a bit of a giggle seeing your sex toy sunbathing next to your deck chair.

And remember, the best eco-friendly sex toy for you isn't about what's trendy or what the sexy, sultry voice on the radio advert recommends. It's about what suits your needs and taste. Splurge on the sex toy that tickles your fancy, fits your body, and feels, let's just say, right.

Following these tips should steer you toward the right eco-friendly sex toy. And I'll wager good money that the planet and your pleasure purse will thank you later.

Remember, we're not wrapping up here. We're still on a green journey ...

Tips for Safe and Sustainable Use

OK, now that you're all revved up about getting down and dirty with some eco-friendly playthings, let's yak about how to keep your time together safe and sustainable. The following tips are not because we think you're a right old ninny, but because it's easy to forget the small print when you're in the heat of the moment.

Pamper Your Plaything

C'mon, don't be those people who treat their toys like an old pair of socks. These lovelies deserve better! With longevity being the name of the game in sustainability, it's all about proper care and maintenance.

With silicone toys for example, always use water-based lubricants. Oil-based or silicone-based lubes can react with your toy, and not in the good way. Think less "oh my" and more "oh no!". Clean them up after every use with mild, unscented soap (unless you fancy a vanilla-scented bum, no judgement here), rinse properly, and never boil them for sterilizing. Remember, your silicone buddy isn't a potato even if it looks a bit spud-like.

When it comes to glass toys and stainless steel for that matter, they're a little less fussy, but also need to be handled with extra TLC because unlike silicone, their warranty doesn't include a "Oops, I did it again" clause for clumsy moments. They're more durable, true, but they'll still hold a grudge if you drop 'em. So take care, will you?

Power Up Smartly

About those rechargeable and solar-powered toys. They're not just doing the planet a solid, they're also kissing goodbye to those pesky trips to the store for batteries. Just imagine, you're all set for some solo exploration and then… nothing. Would be a real mood killer, I reckon.

With rechargeable toys, make sure to follow the manual (a thingamabob you actually need to read!) to the letter. Don't overcharge them or they might just decide to quit on you at the least opportune moment. Solar-powered toys should also be handled with care to optimise their lifespan. Seriously, going green can be sexy and smart!


Well, there you have it! Who knew getting down and dirty could be so clean? From silicone to stainless steel, there's an eco-friendly toy for every taste. They're not just good for the planet, they're also durable, easy to clean, and come with a side of unique sensations.

And let's not forget about our sun-powered buddies. They're not just for calculators anymore! So, next time you're in the mood for a bit of fun, remember to keep it green.

Remember, it's not just about what gets your motor running, but also what keeps our planet spinning. So, choose wisely, care for your toys properly, and enjoy knowing that your pleasure isn't costing the earth. Now, isn't that a turn on?

So go on, embrace your inner eco-warrior - even in the bedroom. After all, who said saving the world can't be fun?
