Is nothing sacred? A new report
released today by our Dutch office reveals that the plastics used to
construct a wide range of sex toys contain very high concentrations of
hazardous phlalates, toxic chemical softeners used in PVC to make it
soft and flexible.
Greenpeace Netherlands asked research
organization TNO to test eight different sex toys, including dildos and
vibrators, for phthalates. Worryingly, seven out of eight contained
phthalates in concentrations varying from 24 to 51 percent. Remember,
these are chemicals which do not easily biodegrade and can be dangerous
- even in small amounts.
The research was commissioned after
Durex's 2005 Global Sex Survey revealed that three million Dutch people
admit to owning a sex toy. Over a million are sold there every year,
making the market worth 22 million Euros.
Greenpeace has been
opposing the use of phthalates for over three years, after research
into children's toys and teething rings showed that the chemicals could
be ingested through direct exposure to sensitive tissue, such as that
found inside the mouth. In 2005 the EU banned the use of the phthalate
DEHP in children's toys because of its damaging effect on young
children, forcing toy manufacturers to develop alternatives. It is
shocking to find them still used in sex toys, also made for internal
According to Toxic campaigner Bart van Opzeeland 'It's
incredible that this substance can still be used in toys for adults.
The last few years we've tested a lot of products but never before did
we find such high concentrations.'
Unfortunately, phthalates can
still be widely found in products ranging from cosmetics to floor
coverings, and are known to leach out into the environment (or into
your body, in the case of sex toys) over time.
The latest research
indicates that exposure to these substances can upset the body's
ability to regulate hormone production, damage reproduction, and cause
cause liver and kidney defects. They can also possibly cause cancer.
So what's the solution?
is obviously insufficient in this matter', says Van Opzeeland. 'It's
time for legislation that bans this kind of hazardous substance. That
is the only way to stop pollution.' The truth is that safe alternatives
for many hazardous substances are already available. It is perfectly
reasonable to demand a law which ensures that:
• substances should be put on the market only once their safety has been proven.
• Information on all chemicals and products should be publicly available.
continues to demand that the EU adopts the REACH proposals for a strict
chemicals law. If adopted, REACH would ban the production and use of
toxic substances, forcing industry to use non-hazardous alternatives.
REACH for a toxics free future! Please help us to call on Members of the European Parliament
(MEPs) to stand up to the powerful chemical industry and to defend EU
citizens' health and environment from hazardous chemicals!
