Condoms for Sex Toys

Posted by Condomologist on June 1, 2009

A friend reminded me today of how handy condoms can be for women when masturbating with a dildo or vibrator. They make for far less clean-up, and when shared amongst partners, they can reduce the transmission of sexually transmitted infections when new ones are used with each partner. She also wondered whether reuse of her vibrator, sans condom, could possibly contribute to recurring yeast infections in the event that one has a yeast infection, uses the sex toy, and then when using it again exacerbates the infection. Just something to consider when you’re getting your masturbation on.

    I agree… condoms are quite handy for sex toys.

    A lot of sex experts will tell you to buy sex toy cleaner with your sex toy. Most sex shops actually sell it and you can order it online. Given this, the only reason I could see putting a condom on the sex toy if it’s being used by multiple partners.

      First of all, I’ve never heard a sexpert say to buy a cleaner at a sex shop — seems like a waste of money to me and a gimmick at that — but rather just to use soap and water to clean them. But sure, if that’s available, I guess why not, assuming it doesn’t have anything in it that’s going to cause any irritation. But on your last point, I’d just say that using a condom makes for easier clean-up, something people probably aren’t too eager to do right after using it. So that’s one reason. And, of course, as you mentioned, makes sense when being shared amongst partners. Thanks for your feedback.
