Sex Toys
Karen Luster, MD posted:
Don't forget to wash and store your toys properly. Remember bacteria and yeast live in the vagina and bacteria lives in the anus so you want to make sure it is cleaned and stored properly. This reduces irritation and any spread of potential infection.

Most toys that are made for sex can be cleaned easily and safely with soap and warm water. The material also tends to be made to reduce or prohibit growth of bacteria and yeast.

Thanks Karen, for reminding us toy lovers about proper hygiene. I also add a drop or two of bleach to some warm water and soak them for a minute oir two, just to be sure, epecially with toys we use anally...just be careful to test them in a small area first so as not to ruin an expensive favorite...

Good advice Karen, and thanks again!
