Ugh. Waterproof. That word is my enemy today. We do carry actual waterproof toys that have a working seal and have been submerged and tested and nothing leaked or seeped. They are usually made with a little more care and consideration. You can usually tell if it's going to keep water out by looking at the battery compartment and it's construction.

Then you get the other manufacturers that stamp "waterproof" on everything they can add a black rubber ring to. We're not talking cheap toys either. The Couture Collection is not, in my opinion, designed to be submerged in water yet there it is: waterproof. Right on the box. I always advise not to submerge anything with batteries in the water. But how can I do that when people order online and don't have my warning message in their ear?

You read the descriptions and there it is, right on the package: waterproof. Since we have to stand by these manufacturers, we can end up with the short end of the stick when people take these toys into the tub. We also have angry customers who will blame us, not CalExotics (just an example). I think I shall write them a letter and ask how these are tested. I'll get back to you when I have more info but for now, just a word of caution.

And a question - do any of you really use toys underwater? What kinds of issues have you had?

I have never used toys underwater. I doubt I ever would. I have used some in the shower; although, a toy only needs to be splashproof to survive the shower.

I agree about the Couture Collection as the first one I got couldn't even stop water from washing from getting into the battery pack.

I certainly don't care for misleading advertising.

Adriana, are you a CalEx Sexpert? Do you have direct contact with someone there who could answer why they continue to print "proof" instead of "resistant"?

I've never used a toy underwater or even IN the tub or shower. My Man works with electronics and has fears of battery problems, burns, shorts and other stuff.

I wash my toys which are called "water proof" or "splash proof" with the bats in, but that is all I do with them in water. I find the wear and tear on the battery compartment, opening and taking out the batteries every time you wash it is worse than just washing these toys closed.
I can be tolerant of almost anything....except Intolerance........and Dairy Products

I seriously don't get it. I think people feel like they have to put them underwater just because the package says so. Maybe I just don't think water and sex/sex toy play are compatible.

waterproof toys are the best until use it carefully because these are delicate and can be broken when putting into the water.
