- ANNE: Erika, when we talk about toxic toys or toxic sex toys, what do you think about the way that we’re using that term?
ERIKA: Overusing it, first of all. That’s definitely true. So toxic alone, the word doesn’t mean a heck of a lot. And I think that comes from the fact that it’s not enough information. And everything is toxic. Everything. Water is toxic. It’s not enough information on its own. What matters is the compound — for example, water — the organism that’s being affected, and the dosage that that organism is receiving. Without those two additional parts — you know, who is it affecting and the dosage — the word toxic means nothing.

- — Formidable Femme (@FemmeReviews)Fri, Aug 04 2017 18:00:53The term "toxic toys" SHOULD cause alarm. Toxic toys *are* harmful. They can cause hurt and illness. Consumer education is important. #SFS17
