Jel-Lee is the trademarked name for a line of adult toys made from jelly rubber. This soft, pliable substance is crafted from a mix of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and chemical softening agents.
A range of sex toys are made from Jel-Lee including dildos, anal wands, oral sex simulators, and erotic massagers.
Jel-Lee is also known as Jelly or AquaGel.
More About Jel-Lee
Jel-Lee is a popular sex toy material because its finish is smooth, soft, and flexible just like real human skin. Jel-Lee can also be manufactured in a range of fun and attractive colors. The material is also inexpensive to manufacture. Jel-Lee sex toys tend to be some of the most affordable on the market. However, they tend to have a strong lingering rubbery scent and taste which can be offputting.
Jel-Lee sex toys may be used with silicone or water-based lubricant for increased pleasure, but are not compatible with oil-based lubricants.
Jel-Lee is a very porous material. It can harbor bacteria if not cleaned thoroughly. Dishwashing liquid soaps and alcohol will corrode the material. It’s safest to use only a specially designed antibacterial cleaner with these toys. As they cannot be sterilized, Jel-Lee toys should only be shared if covered in a condom.
Jel-Lee toys have been known to absorb anything they come in contact with and melt on contact with other toys, including those made from Jel-Lee. Storing a Jel-Lee sex toy in its own cloth pouch in a cool, dark place will help preserve the material’s integrity and prolong the toy’s life.
There have been no conclusive analysis on Jel-Lee in particular, but some jelly rubber sex toys have been known to contain phthalates. This chemical softener has been linked to a host of health and environmental concerns, so it should be used at your own risk. Using Jel-Lee toys with a condom will reduce exposure and lowers the risk.
