Green sex toys

Grist, my beloved source of environmental news with a sense of humour, has posted a good overview of concerns about toxic chemicals and environmental impacts of sex toys.

They confirm my general philosophy that cheap tools— whether plastic-handled hammers or jelly-rubber vibrators— aren’t worth the trouble.

I am thoroughly mystified by the omission of silicon from their otherwise thorough overview. Silicon is a safe and popular material for sex toys. It is used for medical devices and available in a range of textures, from squeezable to rigid. Pyrex glass has its place (for example...), but silicone is much more versatile. And in my opinion, variety is the whole point of sex toys.
