Exposing the use of phthalates in the adult toy industry

by Shelli Walsh
(Leeds, UK)

The use of toxic chemicals and phthalates has been largely unregulated in the adult toy industry. Phthalates have been declared so harmful that in 2005 the EU banned the use of the phthalate DEHP in children's toys.

There is a growing concern to the exposure of health damaging chemicals in adult novelty toys, especially considering the intimate nature of the product. I have created the first website in the UK which is dedicated to offering a solution for loving couples who wish to enjoy their bodies without at risk to their health.

Our mission statement outlines our ethical and environmental policies and please read our article on phthalates.

I urge you to consider your health and the state of the environment when making your choices for pleasure.
