Using Sex Toys is MEDIUM RISK
Using sex toys is a medium-risk activity for most sexually transmitted infections if you share them with a partner. There’s no risk if you use them alone.
The health risks from using sex toys can be reduced if you:
• always cover the toy with a fresh condom before use
• change condoms before swapping toys with a partner
• use plenty of condom-friendly lubrication
• only use well-made toys displaying the European safety CE mark
