While surfing the net I found a link to this article about phthalates. While doing a bit more research I found that this chemical is commonly found in sex toys (children's toys as well), which can leach into our orifices and mimic estrogen. Considering it's affect on development in baby boys (couldn't find anything about girls) it makes me wonder how safe our sex toys really are. As someone who just had a hysterectomy due to cancerous tumor that was fueled by an excess of estrogen, this concerns me greatly. Does anyone have any information regarding sex toy safety? I am ready to replace what I have but I want to be sure that I am buying ones that are made with safe materials.
