The adult industry is constantly changing, and it can be difficult to keep up with: are toxic sex toys still a thing? I can’t find any good information about why I should avoid certain lube ingredients! Someone told me silicone lube melts condoms??There is a lot of hearsay and what I like to call Sex Educator Telephone: since there isn’t much solid information and research out there, we often rely on educated guesses and the word of other professionals and sex geeks we trust, or the people manufacturing the products. This has lead to a lot of misinformation going without fact checking (since fact checking is difficult to do) - and being spread around like wildfire. I've gone and found as much reputable information from all corners of the industry and talked with the people trying to dig into the answer: bloggers, sex educators, and retailers doing the dirty work, so you don't have to. Great for professionals – sexuality educators, medical professionals, sex workers – and the curious alike, whether you want to inform yourself for your work or your next purchase.
