(NaturalNews) This year, millions of gifts will be given to a special someone in hopes of making their anniversaries, birthdays, etc. a special one, and many of those gifts will be of the type that couples use in the bedroom, such as sexual products. The issue that consumers should beware of is that many sexual products contain toxins, thus making the gift you purchase something that could be toxic and harmful to your significant other's health.

The good news is that there are many safe sexual products on the market available to make yours and your partner's sexual health a priority as well as offer fun and creativity. Being an informed consumer in this area means choosing products that bring pleasure and do not compromise health.

Most personal lubricants and pleasure toys are sold as novelty items and therefore are not products that are regulated by the FDA or FTC for sexual health safety.

Sexual health toxins often overlooked

Consumers often neglect to think of these products as containing harmful, toxic chemicals, so it is no wonder that many people are often shocked when they discover that their new play toy could be causing serious health concerns.

While consumers often buy organic and natural products when it comes to their food and cosmetics, sexual products tend to be ignored as a source of concern, despite the fact that these types of products are put into quite porous and vulnerable parts of the body, making the importance of nontoxic lubricants and sexual products quite significant.

The most commonly found toxin in personal lubricants today are parabens, and you will often find that even the lubricant that your doctor uses for exams contains them. Other sexual products, such as vibrators, rings, pumps etc., contain such toxins as phthalates, lead, sulfides, mercury, chromates and more. With over 70 percent of sexual products being manufactured in China and most not listing the materials used to make them, it often leaves consumers guessing.

Consumer sexual health safety resources

Below you will find some helpful resources for both consumers and sexual health professionals that review what materials and ingredients to avoid, what to look for and how to know if your fun gift will be a healthy one.
