What are your thoughts on corn starch based powders? Can you use talc/corn starch the same way?
Well corn starch is an organic substance, used by plants as energy reserve, so it may provide food for stuff you don’t want (fungus or such, some bacteria just love corn starch). On the other side, talc is a mineral that has no nutritive properties and doesn’t degrade with time. I recommend the latter 😉
I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but Fleshlight recommend corn starch for their products, even their own renewing powder is 100% corn starch. Other say that talc or baby powder can damage Fleshlights. The reason I use the Fleshlight as an example is because they also say that soaps should not be used to clean it, just water. So if an unsoaped, corn starch FL doesn’t act as a breeding ground for bacteria, I’d say it’s safe to use BUT I still wouldn’t do it.
With onaholes getting popular, I think we may see the newest trends and best reports broadcasted on CNN including “how to take care of your toy” ^^
I’m founding the “soap + talc” party, vote for me as president of the International Onahole Syndicate ! Thank you ! 🙂
So as long as you rub the powder in, with no easily visible, then its good to go?
yes, until the powder stays on the onahole 🙂
Off topic. But what happened to the NLS video reviews?
Still there. What do you mean ?
Sorry about that. I meant new video reviews. Havent seen a NLS video review used for a hole in a while. Was wondering if there was a reason that you weren’t using them.
Oh wow ! Thanks for telling me, I checked, and I just saw that they use HTML 5 video code, like me ! :p
Nice, very nice, I won’t have to reencode their videos now 🙂
The latest NLS video I used was for MELT, since then I didn’t got an onahole NLS made a video for (they do sell both Virgin Age, but didn’t shoot videos).
Should I put powder on the insides also?
No you don’t have to, you shouldn’t
Can this be used for any type of materials that the onahole is made of?
Source on the music?
Also, time to clean your sink. 😉
Anyone reading this should be aware that long term exposure to talc powder *may* cause lung cancer or other cancers (ovarian is one, but I’m guessing most people reading this won’t have to worry about that).
Corn starch almost definitely will *not* cause cancer, and I’ve read that the bacteria that grow from corn starch are pretty benign, and are probably already in a lot of food you eat, so there’s really no reason to worry about them being on your onahole.
should you wash away the cornstarch/talc before using it?
No, you don’t need
Is it absolutely necessary to powder it? Mine came in a plastic bag that seemed to have evidence of powder on it, but didn’t come with any actual powder, despite coming with a sachet of lube. After washing it, it has become quite sticky, but I don’t think it would affect its use much. Is there any problem or damage that could occur if it is not powdered?
No risk: it just feels better to the touch when the surface is powdered, but it’s really optional 🙂
Is it okay to use potato starch instead of cornstarch?
