I recently stumbled upon an interesting article about the potential link between dildos and colon cancer, and it actually made me a lil bit nervous. As a sex dolls toy enthusiast, this news was not welcome. But I wanted to make sure I was getting the full picture, so I decided to investigate further and see if there’s any scientific evidence to back it up.
First of all, before I go any further, I want to be clear that I’m not a doctor or a medical expert, so please take this information with a grain of salt. Dildos haven’t been proven to be a cause of cancer, and the only time this has been “suggested” is in case studies where people developed cancer after the use of certain dildos that had damaging chemicals in it. So the bigger takeaway here is to be mindful of the materials and chemicals you’re exposing yourself to, not just dildos specifically.
Having said that, though, it’s important to be aware of the various potential risks of using toys. That’s why I decided to do some research, and I found that colon cancer is a very rarely reported “side effect” of using dildos. It’s worth noting that this is not a common side effect, so please don’t panic if you’ve used dildos before – it’s still probably gonna be fine.
What I found particularly interesting is the mechanism in which dildos could hypothetically contribute to the development of colon cancer. For this, you’d need to be exposed to dildos that contain carcinogenic materials, and those materials can then make their way into your intestinal lining. Over time, these materials can then cause genetic mutation and change the structure of our cells, which can lead to cancer.
Fortunately, most high-quality dildos more than likely do not contain these cancer-causing materials, so the chances of getting colon cancer from a dildo is actually quite small. Nevertheless, it’s still important to be aware of the potential risks, and to inform yourself before buying or using any type of sex toy. That includes checking the material, as well as making sure to sanitize the toy before and after each use.
Now, I’m not a medical expert, but I believe that the bottom line is that dildos, on their own, do not necessarily increase the risk of colon cancer. The potential risk only arises when exposure to certain materials happens over time, and in certain circumstances. So if you just want to pick up a new toy and have some fun with it, then you should still feel safe to do so!
