Dildo Material: Jelly Rubber Dildos
How to Choose a Dildo

Jelly rubber dildos

Jelly rubber dildos are very inexpensive and available in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes. They have a resilient bouncy feel to them.

The only benefit of jelly rubber dildos is that they are inexpensive. If you aren't sure what size and shape you want buying an eighty dollar silicone dildo can be risky.

But jelly rubber dildos are currently made of inferior quality material, and many of them contain phthalates a chemical that has been linked to health problems in other products and situations. For this reason if you use jelly rubber dildos it is recommended that you always use latex condoms .

You can use water based lubricants and silicone based lubricant with jelly rubber dildos, but you should never use oil based lubricants as they will damage the dildo.
