10 red flags that prevent you from buying toxic and porous sex toys

10 red flags that prevent you from buying toxic and porous sex toys

The World Wide Web. The cyberspace where all answers can be found and where dreams fly or go to die. At some point in time you must be done losing hours of your life on the Instagram of your ex’s new partner, the most conspiring conspiracy theories or video’s of goats. Instead, why don’t you use the internet as an unlimited playground for your fantasies?

Find yourself a marketplace and go on the hunt for the sex toy of your dreams. Just read our list of (re-)seller red flags first, so you won’t spend your precious time ordering toxic crap. You’re welcome.

For the lazy bums among us, or the people that can’t wait for 5 more minutes ordering a magic machine, here is the full list of seller red flags we will be discussing today:

  1. The seller uses stock photos. Always bad, with sex toys even worse.  
  2. The seller is offering a product that has got nothing to do with the rest of its products. 
  3. The seller does not have any social accounts, a bio or a normal company name. 
  4. The seller does not share what materials they use. 
  5. Low prices. Trash is cheap, quality means keep. 
  6. The seller doesn’t answer your question, or answers your question in a red flag way.
  7. You spot any toxic and/or porous materials. 
  8. The seller sells on a marketplace where everyone can open up shop. Even your dog.
  9. Location. Sorry not sorry, but an origin in Asia is usually not artisan or handmade at all. 
  10. The seller has bad reviews. Abort mission.

Right. Now, let’s dig deep, like - hopefully (because of this checklist) - the body-safe toy you will order later on. You’re welcome, again.

 

  1. The seller uses stock photos. 

Product photos are like the business cards of the thing(s) you sell. An artisan sex toy creator will always make sure that its photos are creative, original and finger-licking gorgeous since the products are just that. Stock photos are never stunning, which makes it a good indicator that you are dealing with a re-seller that doesn’t care about the stuff you buy to use. What is the real deal to Konfettie? Small, independent companies that create body-safe adult items out of passion. It’s always their own design and most of the time even handmade.

Looking at the image it easy to spot the re-seller. The photos on the right are clearly stock photos. 

  1. The seller is offering a product that has got nothing to do with the rest of its products. 

Imagine. In the midst of 30 types of pegging harnesses in the shop of a seller, you suddenly spot one karaoke set. All alone and on its own. Besides that being sad for the karaoke set, it’s also sad for the seller. This, namely, is the point where you officially found out that you are dealing with a reseller that doesn’t care about the quality you deserve. Busted and bye.

Only one dildo offering? That means that dildos are not their core businesss. Fat chance they are not in it because of their love for sex toys, but only to make a quick buck. 

  1. The seller does not have any social accounts, a bio or a normal company name. 

Let’s put it like this. When a seller does not have a normal company name - nobody calls their legit business “dirtygrandpaxoxo1234” - or a bio, it’s simply because they couldn’t care less. I mean, why would you let your brain work for some good branding if you are solely focused on fast delivery instead of the people behind the shop? Re-seller alert.

Does the seller have a more personalized bio? Then the chances are bigger that you’re shopping from a legit artisan company. Also, re-sellers can’t be bothered by creating a social media profile. Allow me to summarize. Not having anything out there, means that you don’t want to have anything out there, because the things that are out there, are not acceptable out there. Understood?

  1. The seller does not share what materials they use. 

Chief Red Flags. When a seller does not share anything about the utilized materials, they don’t share anything because the utilized materials suck. Re-sellers generally don’t care about what they sell and whether it’s safe for you. Therefore, in case a listing of a product does not tell you what materials have been used, run. It’s a sex toy we’re talking about. Something you will (probably) stick up a hole. Better know what it’s, literally and figuratively, made of. 

 

  1. Low prices. Trash is cheap, quality means keep. 

Craftmanship is not cheap. Handmade products are not cheap. Custom orders are not cheap. The things that are cheap, are called trash. Body-safe materials are never the cheapest on the market. Therefore, low prices are a good indicator that porous and toxic materials have been used. Nota bene, this is the exact reason why manufacturers use these materials: cutting the costs. Money over safety. It’s a shame full of shame.

  1. The seller doesn’t answer your question, or answer your question in a red flag way.

Do you really think that a legit company or artisan sex toy creator, that designs and produces adult products they are proud of, does not want to or is not able to answer questions about their dildos, handcuffs or BDSM furniture? They are always super eager and keen to answer every question you can think of. Therefore, chatting or messaging with a seller will let you know fast enough if you are talking to a phony or fantastic one.

Check out our blog about a product from AliExpress, where messaging the seller was all we needed to be sure of it’s (fake/Faak)ness.  Like an artisan sex toy maker wouldn’t know what materials they use to poor their handmade dildos. Laughing out loud.

  1. You spot any toxic and/or porous materials. 

Let’s not waste too many words on this one. If the seller did not even try to hide the list of disastrous materials that their product is made of, its dumb mind shouldn’t be in business in the first place.  

Need a reminder on which materials are toxic and which are body safe? We got you covered with this blog.

  1. The seller sells on a marketplace where everyone can open up shop. Even your dog.

Yep, it’s an open door. Still, it’s an open door worth kicking down. If a marketplace does not do any quality control whatsoever, how on earth can they ever control who’s selling on their platform? Many marketplaces do not have the desire to control the quality, as the big amount of resellers are also contributing to their goal: hard cash.

  1. Location. Sorry not sorry, but an origin in Asia is usually not artisan or handmade at all. 

We are not saying that all sellers from Asia are rubbish. We are saying that a bit of due diligence, in this case, can help to prevent you from buying toxic and porous toys. 

 

  1. The seller has bad reviews. Abort mission.

Sometimes, it really pays off to read the comments. And if a comment seems fake or robot-like, it probably is. You will figure it out. Don’t see any reviews yet on profiles of Konfettie sellers? That’s because we are a start-up. You better expect these reviews to be there soon, because that’s what happens when people like your products.

If you want to shop for cheap, toxic and porous toys, go ahead. There are plenty of (re-)sellers that are active on numerous marketplaces, that can provide you with low-quality, low-safety and low-value sex toys. You, though, are worth more than that.

So are you looking for toys that can last you a lifetime, that are body-safe and that look and feel absolutely amazing? Toys that do not smell, that don’t give you chemical burns and that are easy to clean and disinfect? We dare you to let Konfettie.eu be your guide to a body-safe sex life. Explore our shop.
