Which sex toy are you?
The Hill — In a report released on Monday, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) revealed that in the United States, sexualized toy sales are on the rise and that in 2017, there were more than 9 million sexualized toys sold on the internet.
The report said that sexualized products are marketed to young boys and girls as “sexy toys” that are supposed to stimulate and “feed” sexual desire.
But as the industry continues to expand its appeal, the NCSL found that “many boys and men who enjoy sex toys are finding that they are not being properly educated about the benefits and risks of their products.”
The NCSL said that many parents have been concerned about the safety of toys made for kids in the past.
In 2017, one of the most popular toys in the market, the “Dildo Kit,” a small, white dildo, was recalled by the toy company after a child was diagnosed with a rare condition known as “Pornographic Disorder.”
According to the NCSCL report, the kit, which is made of silicone and comes in a clear plastic box, is marketed to kids ages 7-10 years old, but according to the company, it contains a substance that can cause “fatal sexual transmission and/or sexual injury.”
A similar warning was issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September, saying that the kit can be harmful if a person consumes it for extended periods of time.
It also states that “it may not be safe for children to handle the kit or even to touch it.”
The report also noted that in 2016, a company called “Fantasy Toys” sold a product called “Dirty Doll” that was designed to stimulate a man’s prostate with water.
According to The Hill, the product was advertised as a “safe, safe and safe-for-work” toy, and was marketed to children as “a fun and safe toy for your partner.”
The manufacturer of the toy, Fantasy Toys, also said that “in order to make sure that these toys are safe for kids, the company has developed a process for parents and caregivers to ensure safe storage and use.”
“We are proud to have been a part of this historic report and look forward to sharing our vision for the future of sexualized sex toys,” Fantasy Toys spokesperson Kristina Crampton told The Hill.
“We have a lot of work to do with parents, educators, and manufacturers, but we are committed to making sure that the toys we make are safe and that they’re fun and fun for all of our kids.”
