Rabbit vibrator may cause serious damage to health

Rabbit vibrator and other popular sex toys created for pleasure may be also very harmful for health. Such a conclusion was made by Greenpeace which had investigated levels of phthalates in sex toys.

Rabbit vibrator may cause serious damage to healthPhthalates are a chemical compound used to soften hard plastics into soft rubber and jelly. Derived from Phthalic acid, and often called a plasticizer for its plastic softening properties, phthalates have been produced since the 1920’s and have been used in everything from perfumes to pesticides and, of course, sex toys.

Rabbit vibrator or Jack Rabbit vibrator is a vibrating and twirling sex toy made in the shape of a phallus with a clitoris stimulator fastened on the shaft. The name of the device is derived from the fact that the clitoris stimulator looks like a pair of rabbit ears. Rabbit Vibrators appeared recently as a response to the growing female needs in more pleasurable sex toys and gained a special popularity after one of the episodes of the world-known HBO's TV series Sex and the City.

Rabbit vibrator allows receiving more pleasurable sensations, since they are designed for stimulating the vaginal erogenous zones and clitoris simultaneously. The device is applied for masturbatory purposes or during partner love plays

According to different polls rabbit vibrator appears to be the most popular sex toy today. Scientists studied the molecular structure of several kinds of sex toys and found that rabbit vibrators have the highest amount of phthalates.

Studies on rodents have revealed that when exposed to very large doses, phthalates can cause damage to the liver, lungs, kidneys, testes and can cause hormonal disruption.

Phthalate molecules are not chemically bound to the plastics they soften, and as such, phthalates can ‘break free’ from plastic fairly easily, and cause rubber and jelly toys to deteriorate over time. Some studies have reported that phthalates may mimic the female hormone oestrogen.
