The Evolution of Earth EroticsShopping Bag

Awareness

Over a glass of red wine, our evening discussion made its way to the topic of environmentalism and the sex toy industry. Lightly buzzed and curious, we were aroused enough to take a field trip to the local Malwart-style mega sex store. Here is what we saw:

We immediately noticed that some products had warning labels, many were in cheesy air tight packaging, and several failed to disclose information about the material makeup of the toy. After a bit of research, we quickly learned that sex toys are not regulated by the FDA. Sex toys are considered novelties, and are not meant for actual use. Thus, when approving the manufacture and sale of these products, absolutely no consideration is given to the fact they are being put in highly sensitive and highly absorbent areas of the body. Since they are unregulated, sex toys can be made out of almost any material, including poly vinyl chloride, which is a controversial and potentially dangerous plastic. In the United States, many jelly rubber sex toys use rubber softeners, such as phthalates. The use of phthalates in children's toys has been banned in Europe due to health concerns regarding fetal development, cancers, obesity, sperm counts, and other negative health effects.
