BPA in Sex Toys

By November 3, 2010

Follow me on:

Earlier this month the Canadian government added bisphenol A (BPA) to it's list of toxic substances, capping off a two year investigation into the safety of the chemical which is commonly used in plastics and the lining of food and drink containers. BPA is so ubiquitous that studies in both Canada and the U.S. indicate about 90% of North Americans have BPA in the systems. Not just for baby bottles and Frisbees, BPA is also found in some sex toys.

Last year a Canadian Liberal minister suggested that the Federal government should regulate sex toys apparently at least in part due to concerns regarding BPA.

Which raises the question, what do we actually know about BPA in sex toys and whether or not it poses a risk for sex toy users?
