Dildos are safer than children’s plastic toys
PARENTS should give their kids DILDOS to play with rather than toys, say experts.
Boffins from a safety agency in Sweden found sex toys contain FEWER harmful chemicals than most kiddies’ playthings.
In its 2016 study, 2% of the 44 surveyed sex toys that had been imported to Sweden contained banned chemicals, the Swedish Chemicals Agency said.
In a separate study the year before, the agency tested 112 children’s toys and found 15% contained banned substances – including LEAD.
Frida Ramstrom, an inspector for the agency, said: “This was a bit surprising. This was the first time we did such a study.”
Of the 44 sex toys examined, only one plastic dildo was found to contain a banned substance – chlorinated paraffins, which is suspected of causing cancer, the SCA said.
It said it was difficult to determine why more kids’ toys contained dangerous chemicals.
Swedish law says chemicals in children’s toys “must never pose a risk to human health”.
