Using condoms with sex toys

If you share sex toys, covering dildos and vibrators with condoms can help you have safer sex. 

Plastics, rubber and silicone can be very hard to clean properly – even with alcohol – and are great places for bacteria to grow and viruses to hide. 

So how do you stop passing infection from person to person? Put a fresh condom on the sex toy before you start using it and whenever you switch who's using it. Simple.
