Glass Is Class

Silicon toys tend to be on the higher end of the price spectrum, but when you consider the quality, it’s probably worth it in the long run.
With any silicon toy, it’s important to remember to use only water based lube. Any other type of lube can lead to the deterioration of the silicon.
Jelly toys are popular because the texture of the toy feels more like skin than any other kind of material. Jelly toys come in colorful variety are most common in dildo and vibrator form. Toys made of jelly tend to be among the cheapest available, however, jelly toys require more cleaning than toys made of silicon or glass and are hard to keep sterilized because of how porous the jelly is. Oil and silicon based lubes can’t be used with jelly toys as it causes deterioration of the material.
Deciding on which material is better than the others is a matter of personal preference. Some women like the jelly sensation while others prefer the smoothness of glass.
