Notes about the toys: Colour change
We mix thermochromic pigments into the silicone. Heating up by the human body temperature, the pigments change their colour. In this way, for example, the green banana matures to a delicious yellow fruit. The corn on the cob changes from autumnal yellow (cold) to bright yellow (warm). At room temperature the dildos return to their original colour – as you see on the product photos.
Almost all of our love toys are equipped with this optical gimmick.
In 4 Videos (SFW) we show the effect with warm and cold water:
For the functioning of the temperature-sensitive pigments the manufacturer specifies a life span of about two years. Therefore the colour change may be subsiding within this time and subsequently may be eliminated altogether.
Intense and prolonged sunlight reduce the life time of the pigments in addition.
Long-lasting heat can destroy these color change pigments. They are heat resistant up to 180 ° C and you can disinfect your toy with boiling water if you want.
Alternatively, use ethanol or toy-compatible disinfectant sprays.
Notes about the toys: Firmness
We use 3 different silicone types.
For big toys we use very soft, cuddly silicone. The toy feels as if you grab your thigh muscle. Or like a gummy bear.
All toys with uncomplicated diameter are made of medium-hard silicone. This is flexible and stable at the same time. Similar to an eraser.
The strongest silicone ensures at the slender, delicate forms the necessary strength of the toys. But the silicone is very elastic; not completely stiff.
Depending of what hard or soft silicone the toy is made, the same toy shape results even in very various experiences of feeling. If you are curious about it, we gladly produce any toy from a different silicone upon request. A corn on the cob made from middle-hard silicone would have an even more significant massage characteristic.
We tried to illustrate this in a small video:
Notes about the toys: Surface
Unlike the toys from the industrial manufacturing process, we create a mirror-smooth, glossy, slippery surface. It feels wonderfully and also looks really natty. With our dildos you will feel no scratchy seams.
Caused by this elaborate processing, the dildo’s surface is so smooth and flawless that it can easily and thoroughly be cleaned.
Notes about the toys: Hypoallergenic silicone
Each piece we produce from bodysafe silicone.
This is guaranteed odorless and causes no allergic reactions. It will not go out of shape, endures coldness and hotness, ozone, UV light and many other torments, is abrasion resistant and keeps its elasticity. It has the wonderful characteristic to absorb warmness quickly.
It is silicone in medical grade. My production and the products are constantly monitored by the relevant authorities. Until now without any complaints.
Questions about the painted ornaments
The decorative paintings are composed of different dyed silicone and are applied by airbrush or free-hand with the brush. This must take place within a defined time frame after casting of the base body, as well as the application of the transparent silicone that creates the unique shine.
The 3 silicone layers (base, ornament, cover coat) still crosslink together and form a chemical entity. They cannot be separated at all.
My downside: Mistakes in painting therefore end up in the scrap box.
As all our toys are made individually, we can fulfil special wishes too.
Your favourite colour, hand-drawn symbols or nicknames, brilliant colour effects – nearly everything is possible! If you have questions or you need an advice, just e-mail me.
There are really great projects and ideas – some of them you see in the "your design" page. You can reorder the same toys or take them as inspiration for your own creations.
As soon as we discussed together every detail, you can decide whether you want to entrust me with the custom-made order. By transferring the payment amount, I will start to produce your project. Such unique toys are excluded from the right of withdrawal. Depending on the amount of work it will take about 10 business days to be finished.
Much more complex and causing higher costs, is the preparation of a toy, for what a new mould needs to be prepared. Feel free to e-mail me your ideas – we will discuss it individually. But there is a waiting list. For a short-term birthday surprise you better choose from the options above.
Cleaning and care
Hot water and shower gel are sufficient.
Disinfection is always necessary, when the same toys are used vaginally and anally.
I recommend ethanol or sex toy compatible sprays.
Cooking water is also a common way to disinfect objects. The pigments withstand temperatures up to 180°C.
Our silicone tolerates high temperatures of 180 ° C over a longer period of time. (Maximum temperature: 250 ° C)
Keep the dry, clean toys sealed until the next date to protect them from dust and lint.
There are many good options depending on the size of the collection. First, the pretty packaging in which you get the toys from us. Or even in a lockable beauty case or a roomy plastic box from the hardware store together with lubricant, massage oil, condoms, towels or what you need else.
There is nothing else to be considered for a long life of the toy. Enjoy!
Find your lube
All lubricants offered in the SelfDelve shop can be safely combined with the toys. Surely this is also true for many other manufacturers’ products – but we cannot test them all to make a statement. :)
Finally, it is your very private decision what type of lube feels best for you – the silicone-based are "oily", the water-based rather "fresh".
I often read the recommendation to use only water-based lubricants with silicone toys. The idea is that silicone molecules from the lubricant accumulate to the toy and possibly turn the usually matt toys to a glossy surface in the long term. Some people do not like that.
Questions about the right gag ball size
The 45mm version is the best-selling ball size in our assortment.
If you are fooling around with one of the other ball sizes, but are not sure whether it will fit, I always recommend the following: Look for a potato, an apple or, or, or in a similar size and test the feeling of wearing it. You can also carve a kohlrabi ...
Of course, the silicone balls are then much smoother and in contrast to the tasting gag long durable and washable, but so you get a first impression and can make a good decision.
Collection "Garden of Eden"
To bring some variety into the world of phallic-shaped dildos we base this heavenly collection entirely on Mother Nature’s creations.
Like a chameleon, these toys, made of hypoallergenic silicone, will change their color when heated.
Collection "Ball Gags"
Each gag ball consists of odorless silicone coloured with non-toxic pigments. The surface is glossy.
In addition to the colours shown an incredible number of different tones can be produced on request.
Pull this soft and stretchy sleeve over the penis. The tip of the penis remains free and the gently rounded side comes forward.
You can shorten the length of the sleeve to suit your individual needs by simply cutting the thicker end. This is not a very tight sleeve: our testers liked it better if the sleeve was slightly loose around the penis shaft, allowing it to move up and down. Try it also with a lubricant.
As a masturbation booster you turn inside out the sleeve so that the knobs side faces inward and enjoy the massage structure directly on the penis.
It can also be applied to another toy - e.g. a smooth vibrator - and provide a new surface.
Discretion is our priority. Therefore, we will pack the toys in inconspicuous cardboard boxes. The tape is also unspectacular brown without any advertising print.
The sender on package is Anja Koschemann / Berliner Str. 19/ 01067 Dresden. We add the bill inside.
With these "precautions" you are safe for a possible neighborhood delivery or delivery to your working place.
Since we ship with DHL, deliveries to your packing station are possible.
The environmentally friendly pad chips are made of corn starch and can be disposed with the organic waste.
Toys from the standard range are available in most cases and can be shipped immediately. The current delivery time is displayed at each product.
For custom-made toys we need about 10 business days for producing and get them ready for shipping. This time only starts after we received the money. Close to public holidays like Valentine’s Day, Easter and Christmas, of course, it will take some more time. :)
According to experience, in Germany DHL will deliver on the following day. To Austria it takes usually only 2 days and to Switzerland the parcel’s runtime is about 3 to 4 days. Overseas takes about one week.
You always get a tracking number.
