Waterproof sex toys or splashproof sex toys?
One of the top places to find some alone time for masturbation is the bathroom. Whether it’s the sensual pleasure of slipping into a warm bath, or the fact that you can lock the door and shut out everyone else, bathroom masturbation is one of the best ways to relax.
So which toys can you safely take into the bathroom?…………
Splashproof sex toys
Most sex toys are splashproof – this means that you’re OK to get them a bit wet but they shouldn’t be taken into the bath or the shower. Splashproof sex toys should be cleaned with a damp cloth, and you need to make sure that you don’t fully submerge them.
This is usually because the design of the toy isn’t fully sealed – water can get through cracks into battery compartments or underneath the material. These toys – although great fun in the bedroom – shouldn’t be taken into the bath.

These toys (sometimes referred to as ‘submergible’) are completely safe to use in water. The design of the toy means that it’s sealed so water won’t get in and destroy the inside of the toy. You can bring them into the bath or shower either with your partner, or to make the most of some time on your own.
The Lelo Gigi 2 is not only fully waterproof (meaning you can put it right in the bath as well as just get it wet) but it’s also very quiet – so you shouldn’t get anyone knocking on the bathroom door!
Best bath sex toys
If you’re a fan of masturbation in the bath or shower, the toys you can rely on are those without electric or moving parts. Glass dildos, for instance, are obviously fine to use in water.
However, be careful if you’re using a silicone toy in the bath. Water-based lube tends to wash away easily so most people prefer to use a silicone-based lube in the bath or shower. But silicone-based lube can cause damage to silicone toys, so be careful when you’re mixing and matching!
Of course, if you’re looking for something specifically designed for use in the bath and shower, then you might want to check out the Ultrastud Soft Mount – it comes with a suction cup so it can be mounted in your favourite place.
