Are you an eco-sexual? Here are 3 ways to make your sex life more environmentally conscious.
- Change up your toys!
When it comes to using Toys, eco-friendly options are absolutely on the rise.
Rather than having to waste batteries, try out some re-chargeable options. To ensure longevity and safety, find a waterproof and phthalate-free option. Phthalates have raised concerns about potentially causing cancer and infertility, making them a definite no-go.
While the idea of using glass on such a sensitive area might seem counterintuitive, Glass Toys are extremely environmentally friendly. Plus, they are hypoallergenic and don’t fall victim to odour accumulation, making them a trustworthy addition to the bedroom.
With their complete lack of battery, these toys are often much lighter than others. What’s more, they hold their charge for longer periods of time than standard toys, giving you the freedom to take your time.
- Use ethical condoms
Currently, there are a variety of cruelty-free, vegan, and ethically-made Condoms on the market. Glyde produces condoms that aren’t tested on animals and use no animal by-products, while Sir Richard’s condoms are vegan and contain a paraben- and glycerin-free lubricant. Give these a test run on your next trip to the bedroom for a more eco-friendly experience.
- Try natural lubricants
Most lubricants on the market are made up of synthetic ingredients which are easily absorbed through the vaginal walls. To promote your own health, try an organic, water- and plant-based formula that is all-natural and paraben-free. If your lubricant contains natural oils, like those from olive, coconut, or grapeseed, use a polyurethane condom—this material won’t break down or weaken when combined with oil, unlike latex.
