Caring for your sex toy

Updated: Jan 10

Platinum silicone dildos, dongs, butt plugs and anal stretchers from the John Thomas range are all made from the finest medical grade materials. They are made to look amazing and feel amazing inside the body too. They are body safe and also hypoallergenic and highly durable.



Our sex toys do not require an elaborate cleaning ritual in order to maintain them. They are phthalate free and simple to care for. The same cannot be said for other sex toy materials. John Thomas Toys are non-porous which, for those of you that are familiar with adult toys, will know is a major plus.


If an adult toy is porous then it means that the surface allows bodily fluids, water, dirt, bacteria or fungus to potentially get absorbed inside your sex toy. This may not sound like a big deal, but in reality it is when it comes to cleaning and the longevity of your sex toy.

Examples of sex toys which are porous include those made of TPR which stands for Thermoplastic Rubber. TPR (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is another example and these types of adult toys are also at risk of containing harmful chemicals which soften the rubber known as Phthalates.


Latex sex toys are another example of a porous sex toy material. Porous sex toys generally require expensive sex toy cleaners to be used when you have finished playing. However, because they can absorb the water and germs, you can never really get a totally clean sex toy after that first use.


Over time, with a cheaper adult toy made of one of these inferior materials, you can expect to see discolouration. Your adult toy may begin to smell (and not in a good way).


Furthermore, you may see evidence of fungal growth. All of these signs indicate that it is time to throw your sex toy in the bin. With John Thomas Toys however, they are non-porous. Water and nasty bugs and bacteria have no means to get inside your adult toy. Therefore the good news is not only that your adult toy will last, but also that it is much easier to clean, plus you can clean it comprehensively.


With a platinum silicone dong, once you have finished pleasuring yourself or your partner, you have flexibility in how you want to clean it. The simplest and easiest way to clean your large silicone dong or huge silicone dildo is in a bowl of hot soapy water. The use of an antibacterial cleaner is always a good idea.


You can let your sex toy soak a while if needed and then remove any dirt and then rinse thoroughly. Once cleaned in this simple manner, allow your sex toy to dry in the air and then store in a plastic container or use the faux velvet storage bag you would have received free with your order from us. N.B Ensure your sex toy is stood upright to dry so any water inside the toys vacuum hole runs out.


If you do not store your adult toy in a container then it is likely to attract dust and hairs which will not be desirable the next time you go to use it!


John Thomas adult toys can also be cleaned in the dishwasher. Obviously first ensure that no-one else is liable to empty the dishwasher on your behalf when it has finished its cycle or else it could be a little embarrassing! For hygiene reasons you may also wish to only clean in the dishwasher when there are no other cups, plates or cutlery inside it.




Medical grade platinum silicone is of such a high quality that it can be warmed or cooled prior to entry inside the body. In addition, for total peace of mind, once you have used your large silicone dong or huge silicone dildo, feel free to immerse it in a bowl of freshly boiled water.


Allow your sex toy to totally sterilize in the water and then drain carefully. (You may wish to hand wash first if there is any dirt or debris upon it).

Your sex toy if cleaned in this manner is now totally hygienic and free of bacteria. As before, allow to dry and store appropriately.
