Amazon can be a huge money saver. With over 480 million products you will definitely have a lot of options to choose from. When it comes to adult self-care / sex products, however, Amazon shouldn’t be the place to shop – even if you can save some money. Your genitals deserve the best, non-used, body-safe, products! Buying sex toys on Amazon just can’t match up to mindful and aware stores like us and here’s why…
Anyone can sell there…ANYONE!
For only $39.99 a month anyone can get a seller account on Amazon and list any product they want! Amazon doesn’t verify products sold by third-party sellers. How could they, they have over 480 million items! Amazon sellers can even sell products that are considered “used.” For example, someone who owns multiple types of used adult toys could easily create an account on Amazon and simply resell all of their used products to unknown Shoppers!
That’s definitely the worst-case scenario, however, there are plenty of people looking to make money any way they can. Unfortunately, this is one of the harsh realities of buying sex toys on Amazon. Resold or used products can result in bacterial infections and unsafe materials can cause even bigger health problems. We recommend staying away from that waiting pool of unknown infections, materials, and products. This is one of our biggest turn-offs when it comes to buying sex toys on Amazon.
Counterfeit or copycat…who cares…right? THINK AGAIN…
A recent study done on Amazon by secret shoppers revealed that over 70% of products sold by third parties on Amazon were counterfeit or copycats. What does this mean for you and your purchase of adult tools? Well, it means that many of these sex toys and the materials used for them may be created without tests or regulations. There are various materials not safe for the body and some materials carry bacteria a lot easier than others.
Also, if you think buying sex toys on Amazon means your toy comes with a warranty… think again. Amazon does not check to verify that products are what they say or even if they’re counterfeit or not. If your purchase is counterfeit, it won’t be warrantied. Amazon provides buyer protection, you say? Yes, this may be true for some products, however, this means returns, calls, and time spent fixing a mistake that you could have initially avoided by looking elsewhere. If you’re looking for a sex toy to relieve stress, do you really wanna put yourself in a situation that can bring you more?
The Best Products have Agreements
As we discussed in the previous section, the best-selling, top-rated sex toys in the industry are made with body-safe materials that are tested and approved for internal or external use. There are a lot of other countries out there that make sex toys, but they don’t always use the safest materials. Some of these lesser materials may fall apart or have a slimy icky chemical called phthalates, which act as a preservative for the material. This means some toys might be used, returned, or counterfeit products.
So what did the best companies do? These companies created agreements with sellers to ensure their products are sold at a rate that shows they’re the real deal. For example, if you look on our website for a sex toy and then go to Amazon and see it’s only $9.99 instead of $59.99, that sounds like a pretty good deal, right? Here’s the catch; the company that created that adult toy won’t allow their sellers to price it so low. Why not? This strategy protects you, the consumer, from unknowingly purchasing a counterfeit, copycat, or used and abused item. So if you ever dare to purchase a sexual wellness tool for your temple off of Amazon, remember the old adage, “You get what you pay for.”
