Virtual reality has arrived at Shadoe Intimates. Feel it and watch it!
Silicone is considered one the most inert materials in the world
But now it has been shown that a few individuals may even be allergic to this inert substance.
Often domestic utensils are made of silicone as they have a very high heat threshold and other household items may have silicone to make the containers air tight, allow flexibility and be hypo allergenic. These silicone materials are not as pure as the medical quality silicone and therefore may produce more allergic reactions than the silicone of medical utility. Most high end playthings in our store are made with medical grade silicone. The rest, as they are solids, have little or no breakdown capacity.
Shadoe Intimates Inc has been selling silicone lubrication and toys for over 10 years. In that time we have met exactly ONE person that claimed to be allergic to silicone only to find that they were using their silicone toy with heating lube they got someplace else. In our experience, silicone lube and playthings (while never used together) are safe and reliable.
Silicone appears in everything from soaps, nail polish, makeup, cap lids, toys (including children’s toys), cellular phones, chewing gum, processed food, and hand lotion. Typically, the allergy that is thought to be from silicone is from an additive used with the silicone, such as Latex.
The following are quotes from MD’s regarding the safety of silicone and the likelihood of allergic reactions.
“I have never read of an antibody to silicone in humans. An antibody is a requirement for a true allergic reaction. The body does recognize silicone as a foreign object which is why capsules form around breast implants. Silicone does not have an organic moiety (an antigen) that triggers the body to produce an antibody. Silicone is useful because the foreign body response is very tame.”(Vincent Zubowicz, MD)
“Silicone comes in different forms based on its molecular structure. This ranges from a low viscosity liquid form to a stable solid form. A true silicone allergy is very rare.” (David Bogue, MD)
If you don’t already know, we are extremely selective on what lubes we carry.
We will never stock KY Jelly for example. Why you might ask? It contains Glycerin which breaks down to sugars and may cause yeast infections and other unpleasant things like bacterial vaginosis. Even if you have never had an issue with it yourself, we will not special order or stock it ever.
Same goes with warming, cooling, numbing and tingling lubes…. Don’t get us started. You only get one body and tinkering with your natural PH and messing with infections can cause long term damage to your reproductive bits. We will always put your sexual and overall heath ahead of a sale. Shadoe Intimates takes pride in that
We carry a large selection of lubes that ARE Shadoe approved and are always happy to help find you the right one to work in harmony with your needs.
We just had a Hathor restock of Sutil which is a very natural Water Based option that’s made in BC! Check it out if you are looking to try something new!
Please always read ingredients and be aware of what you are putting in your body. Do your own research and know that just because you can buy something, doesn’t mean it is good for you. Tingling lube is next to the antifungals in the drug store for a reason. Makes it nice and easy to purchase both to save yourself a trip.
So, you think you can get a better deal online?
No problem, but consider this…. when you search for something online, your browser and hundreds of algorithms are watching, recording and evaluating what you look for. So, search for a FIST, PUSSY, VAGINA, PENIS or TESTICLES? Your browser is deciding that you are looking for SEX. Yup sex, and then you get a multitude of offers for pills to enlarge your junk, creams to make your bits tighter and offers for pretty girls to hook up with that are actually 60-year-old men in prison.
When you do decide to share your intimate desires and order what you think is some great product only to discover that the 4-inch-long silicone dildo you wanted is actually made of oriental silicone (what ever that is) and is 4 inches WIDE.
Or how about this: It is 6 weeks until that important day and you need lingerie. You order it online only to panic three days before the day looking at an empty mailbox. Or you do receive it only to find it would barely fit a four-year-old, is the wrong colour and has no zipper.
How can we help? At Shadoe Intimates, you look at what you want, touch it, get great advice on the best products and leave today with your personal product in your hand, perfect fit, perfect product and no one the wiser. Better to shop locally, be happy and safe, help our community survive, and not inadvertently appear in an on line anti-pedophile campaign. You never know!!!
