There is no organization, board or coalition that regulates the safety of sexual aids in the United States, Japan, Canada and the European Union. None, zero, zilch. Why does that matter? Because, with no regulations, they CAN and DO, make it out of whatever material they want. Toxic? Who cares. Hazardous? Whatever. Cancer-Causing materials? What the consumer doesn’t know will make us more money! Keeping them made cheap? Now we’re talking sex toy production style. Regulating sex toys production would be admitting that people use them, and our government doesn’t want to do that-for goodness sakes, sex toys are illegal in 6 states! How could the government evaluate the safety of something that is illegal? Doing so would be admitting that people used them, and as a result, that the government condoned such behavior.
It’s National Masturbation Month! To celebrate, we’ll be highlighting resources on the topic every Sunday in May. Today we’re featuring our Introduction to Sex Toys page. Check it out here! (via thecsph)
Remember, if it says “Novelty Use Only” use a condom!
