I’m sure you’ve heard of those little gadgets, the ones that are labeled “For external use only”. Well, if you’re wondering why they have that, it’s because those ‘dildos‘ were originally intended only for external stimulation.
It’s all about safety; the idea is that you don’t insert them into yourself. And it’s not just dildos; any sex toy with a similar tag should not be used internally, as the material isn’t suitable for this kind of use. This includes vibrators, anal toys, and even some lubricants.
It’s important to know why this is so important. Without taking precautions you could be putting yourself at risk of infection or other serious health issues. Dildos and other sex toys are made from a variety of materials, including plastic, rubber, and silicone. Some materials may be less harmful than others, depending on how they’re treated, or how often they’re washed. But if you don’t know the type of material the toy is made of, you could unknowingly be putting yourself in danger.
It’s also important to note that even if you use a toy as directed, there’s still a chance of getting an infection if you don’t clean it properly. Bacteria can hide in even the smallest crevices, and if you don’t properly clean a toy, you could be setting yourself up for trouble.
However, just because you’re not supposed to use these items internally, that doesn’t mean they can’t still be pleasurable. External stimulation can be just as enjoyable as internal, especially if you use the right lubricants and prepare the area accordingly. And if you really want to dive into more intense areas, there’s always the option to use a special Pegging Kit, usually made of either rubber or silicone. These are designed specifically to safely and pleasurably stimulate the anus, so they’re much safer to use than your standard dildo.
