    Hi, I was wondering if some of you have some information on the quality of stainless steel sex toys. I want to get a steel butt plug. However, my local stores offer them around 80 to 120$ CAN. When I check out on amazon.ca I have them at 30 $ (shipped from hong kong) and on amazon.com for 7$ (shipped from China).

    This thing is going into my butt. It is not a friendly environment if you know what I mean. Are there any dangers in using a lower quality stainless steel ? Or are my local stores selling these toys at a boosted price since they are made of metal and it's trendy ? I know njoy makes great steel toys, they are also pricey.

    Thanks !

    I recently purchased the Njoy large plug and love it. It is pricey, but worth it. I'm probably going to get the 2" next?

    I ordered from Amazon, but I'm not sure about shipping from China. Mine was shipped domestically.

    I found this on the net: http://dangerouslilly.com/sex-toy-reviews/sex-toy-care-and-maintenance/
    She tests sex toys as a living, so I am going to take her word on these things. It seems that when the metal isn't expensive, there is a good chance that it isn't good quality metal. I checked some reviews on amazon and it seems the toys are sometimes plastic with a metal plating. It can also be regular steel with a chrome plating, which isn't bad but if it starts to chip, then u have to change toys. As for stainless steel, it can last a lifetime.
    I checked on amazon and a seller told me his toy is made of 304 stainless steel which is fairly good quality for only 15$, shipping included... but I was still skeptic. I mean, stainless steel is usually expensive metal. So I went and bought a Nothing Butt Me anal plug for only 41$. Which was a steal (pun intended) considering it's store price is 80$. It is 100% stainless steel and assembled in canada. Which to me seems better than shipped directly from china. At least if I need to complain about the quality of the product the manufacturer is 1h from my place and speaks the same tongue as me.

    Up to you, but $40 for quality in the overall scheme of things is minimal. Just my opinion.

    Well I had an accumulation of rebates (19% off + 25% summer sale) so it's a 68$ toy, but paid 40$. It originally costs 68$ online or 80$ at local store.
