How to Look After, Store & Clean Your Masturbation Toy
As with anything in life, if you have something you love, you have to look after it. This goes for any kind of relationship or personal object. When we don’t spend the proper time taking care of our things, our things tend to break down and stop working.
It may seem a little callous to look at objects and people in the same light, but really, it is the same sentiment. All relationships need nurturing and care. If you take anything for granted, communication can breakdown or in the case of an object, that thing can literally breakdown.
There is a further connection here. One strong type of object people can definitely develop a relationship with is their favourite sex toy. Particularly those toys they use on themselves for personal pleasure. Some sex toys are easy to maintain, while others definitely need some specific care and attention. Male masturbation toys feel fantastic when being used, but they have specific requirements to ensure they always feel soft, smooth and life-like.
How to care for your masturbation toy
One of the keys to ensuring your masturbation toy maintains that delightful texture and softness is to always use the right type of lube when you play with it. Because these toys are predominantly made from CyberSkin (and similar materials), you have to use a water-based lubricant with your male masturbation toy. Silicone lubes might feel awesome, but using them can leave a residue build up on the masturbation toy’s soft surface, turning it from supple to sticky. Be sure your preferred lube always says “water-based” or “aqua-based”.
How to clean your masturbation toy
Just like with good sex, there might be a bit of a mess to clean up when you’re done playing with your male masturbator. But no need to worry about who’s going to be sleeping in the wet spot! That can be all taken care of with a thorough cleaning.
It is important to remember that the material male masturbation toys are made from is porous and susceptible to housing bacteria. This makes it very important that you clean your male masturbator with warm water and soap, or even special sex toy cleaners after every use. We’re not talking a casual rinse like you can do to some sex toys. You have to ensure you clean the toy inside and out, working the soap into all of the nooks and crannies to ensure it is clean and ready for your next erotic adventure.
Once the toy is nice and fresh, dry it off as best you can with a clean, lint-free towel. Since these toys can be tricky to get entirely dry, it is also best to leave it out to air dry before putting it away. Any leftover water can cause the toy to gain a musty or mildewy smell if it is put away damp. To avoid that, be sure it is nice and dry before putting it away.
How to store your masturbation toy
The best way to store your male masturbator between uses is to wrap it in another lint free towel after it has dried off. You’ll want to minimize the potential of dust or other little specks of this and that getting on your sex toy in those times you’re letting it rest. It is also a good idea to store your lube in the same place to ensure you grab the right one the next time you want some hot fun.
Male masturbators can last a long time and provide endless amounts of pleasure when you take proper care of them. And you’ll see, they are definitely worth the effort!
