How long do sex toys typically last and what about rose toys?

With regards to sex toys, their longevity is a matter of concern for many people and this point largely determines the willingness to buy and the pricing of the retailers. We are here to address your queries through this article and below we will take you through the questions about the longevity of sex toys made of various materials and about popular rose toys. So, let's get started now!

Battery life is a big deal

Before we get to the differences in the lifespan of different material sex toys, let's talk about battery life. Most vibrators today use a built-in rechargeable lithium battery. The first thing you need to understand about any rechargeable battery is that its capacity to store electricity declines as it is charged and discharged more often. As with your iPhone, you will noticeably feel that its charge is becoming less durable after 1-2 years of use, and this phenomenon will only get worse with sex toys, as the vast majority of sex toy batteries are not capable of being of the same quality as the iPhone. This is why battery life directly affects the life of the toy. One might think of replacing the batteries, but unfortunately almost all retailers and manufacturers do not offer this service. Additionally, those sex toys that are powered by dry batteries are usually on the lower end of the spectrum, making it difficult for them to meet the needs of most people.

Sex toys made of different materials vary greatly in their longevity performance

Differences in materials are also factors that directly affect the life of the toy, here we are through the material classification to understand the differences.

Rigid material

Hard materials usually include: glass, metal, plastic, gemstones, etc. In addition to being a good choice for conducting vibrations and heat, these materials are also the best for resisting corrosion, scratches, and wear and tear. If properly cared for, they can last almost a lifetime, with the exception of plastic toys. In addition to these benefits, the ease of cleaning and sanitizing is also one of their major advantages. Of course there are many people who do not like hard materials and they consider them less comfortable than soft materials.

Soft material

Some of the common quality soft materials we see often used as sex toy materials are: silicone, TPE/TPR, and latex. If you have paid attention to the sex toy stores, many of their toys are labeled as silicone material, in fact they are playing with words. Due to the excellent properties of silicone raw material which is soft, non-porous, easy to clean and corrosion resistant, it is more expensive and many manufacturers in order to reduce the cost, they only use a small amount of silicone in certain parts. Silicone is actually the best raw material for the most sex toys, both in terms of comfort, safety and longevity. As for TPE/TPR and latex materials, their biggest advantage is that they are comfortable and affordable. In the service life is not advantageous, these materials with the passage of time will appear oil seepage and aging phenomenon, may be a year may be half a year, or even may be a few months.


What is the lifespan of Rose Toys?

The rose toy has continued to gain popularity in recent years, and many people have asked how long and effective this sex toy is, and if it's worth it. Here I give an answer.

To understand its longevity and effectiveness, it is important to understand how the Rose works. This is a clitoral sucking toy which is propelled by a built-in motor to produce a sucking-like effect. There are two key points here, it is built-in battery, motor driven and the quality of these two components determines its longevity. I have checked a lot of information and user reviews and it maintains a lifespan of around 1-2 years. Of course there are some well-maintained users whose Rose Toys are still working properly since 2020 until now.

One thing that must be noted is that this sex toy is sold by many vendors and the quality varies, so be sure to choose a reliable store and avoid buying it on Amazon where there are numerous inferior products.

Naturally, I don't need to tell you too much about its effects, there are so many reviews about it on the internet, and overall, the majority of people like it.

In summary: A sex toy that retails for around $50, with an average lifespan of 1-2 years and significant use, is indeed a cost-effective sex toy worth getting.

Wrap up

The lifespan of a sex toy is affected by a variety of factors, material being only one of them. Proper maintenance can effectively extend the life of your toy. If your toy shows any of the following signs it's time to invest in a new one.

  • The shape of your sex toy has changed.
  • Your sex toy starts to smell bad or leak electrolyte.
  • Surface or internal chipping or cracking
