MEDICAL experts have cautioned women against using sex toys because they contain toxic chemicals.

Dr Misheck Hamazwanga, a gynaecologist at Arthur Davison Children’s Hospital in Ndola, said in an interview that sex toys being advertised and used by women contained different dangerous chemicals.

Dr Hamazwanga said some of the chemicals found in these artificial male private parts included toluene, cyclohexanone, tetrahydrofuran, dimethylformamide and phonol among others.

He said continued usage of sex toys would result in some people experiencing vaginal chemical poisoning which had similar symptoms to that of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).

Dr Hamazwanga said the delicate tissue of the vagina was more susceptible to reactions due to the presence of the chemicals in the sex toys.

He said the usage of sex toys caused vaginal swelling, itching and the burning sensation that would last for days.

He further said the artificial male private parts being sold were porous and could harbour dirt and bacteria because they were not sanitised.

“Even if the toy is not toxic, the porosity issue is still a potential threat as it can harbour bacteria,” he said.

Zambia has in the recent past seen an increase in the sale of artificial male private parts.

And Zambia Church of Nazareth overseer Reverend Joshua Milimo said the usage of sex toys was sinful because it contradicted the plan of God as regards to sex.

Rev Milimo said sex was designed by God to be practiced by man and woman in marriage.

“These are the last days, and people should repent from such practices if we are to be called a Christian nation,” he said.

The sex toys are being used largely in universities and colleges in Lusaka.

Some female students talked to anonymously, indicated that the sex gadgets helped in reducing chances of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.

    This is simply laughable and scare mongering by this so called expert….surely is the first time sex toys are being used in Zambia. Sex Toys have been for decades and centuries…do not cheat women that they have all these chemicals you yourself can not pronounce.

    Rev Milimo said sex was designed by God to be practiced by man and woman in marriage.
    “These are the last days, and people should repent from such practices if we are to be called a Christian nation,” he said.

    Look at this lost Rev Milimo spewing out utter nonsense …if God designed sex to practiced by man and woman why did he impregnate Mary in that contradictory fiction white man’s book of folly and lies called the bible. We have heard this talk of the last days since our great grandfathers were kids…religion is self distraction to put you down whilst the oppressor gains in strength. Christian nation my foot when you are among the most corrupt societies in the world and the so called churches are getting richer by the day.

    –Using sex toys can relieve headaches and pain in general. When you experience an orgasm, your brain floods your body with endorphins, which not only make you feel good, it also blocks pain sensors.
    –Sex toys are safer than actual sex. You can not get pregnant or contract an STD from a sex toy. However, cleaning is still a must, as you can develop and infection from improperly cleaned sex toys.
    –You can get the job done whenever you feel like it. You don’t need to wait for a partner to come along to help you take care of your needs, all you have to do is reach into your drawer and you’re guaranteed a good time.

    How did a child doctor find himself talking about adult sex? And what about natural sex toys like bananas and cucumbers? do they also contain bacteria? I thought the natural sex part contains more bacteria that a toy that one can disinfect on her own?

    A gynaecologist at a children’s hospital when there are no gynaecologist at Ndola Central Hospital. In country with people who have brains he would be at Ndola Central Hospital with a dual appointment at ACH. His research is questionable he should research FDA approved sex tools and he will realize that they are safe to use. Leave sexual morals to the clergy.

    An increase in sales could mean that the majority of Zambian women are sexually starved or indeed,they are really sex addicts/maniacs and Zambian men are failing to cope.We need to dig deeper to find out exactly the underlying causes.

      It’s quite obvious – most Zambian men are HIV positive, and having sex with them potentially means death. The world knows it, even Zambian women know it! Dig deeper yourself bwana
