How to Clean a Pocket Pussy

 

No matter what kind of sex toy you have, part of ensuring you can enjoy it for a long time is proper cleaning and maintenance. This can be even more important when talking about a pocket pussy, stroker, or masturbator. Why? Because these toys are basically snug, squishy tunnels that you may ejaculate into, creating a warm, moist environment. That makes them an absolutely ideal breeding ground for bacteria. I know that’s not sexy, but neither is a funky toy!    


The good news is that cleaning doesn’t take much work at all, and your toy will be clean, healthy, and ready for action in no time. So let’s talk about how to clean a pocket pussy!


Pocket Pussy Basics

First things first, what is a pocket pussy? This adult sex toy is popular as it's made to feel like a realistic vagina, butt or mouth. Therefore, by nature, these sex toys will come in contact with lots of bodily fluids. Not cleaning your pocket pussy will not only lead to the growth of potentially harmful germs, but can cause things like yeast infections or rashes. Plus, like with any male masturbator toy, cleaning your pocket pussy will result in a longer life span.

Always Check Your Pussy Before Cleaning

A bonus to cleaning your pocket pussy is that it provides the perfect opportunity to make sure it is in tip-top shape. Before you set about cleaning your stroker, take a moment to make sure it is not damaged in any way. The last thing you want is a faulty toy, so keep an eye out for:


Cracks: Look out for any cracks or fissures on the toy’s surface. Cracks and crevices give bacteria a new, hard to reach and nearly impossible to successfully clean place to grow and flourish. Additionally, if your pocket pussy has cracks and you continue to use it, it will eventually snap, and that’s no fun for anyone!


Rough patches: Every relationship hits the occasional rough patch, and your relationship with your pocket pussy is no exception! Almost any toy made with a softer material like latex, TPE, or even softer silicone is likely to develop rough patches from typical wear and tear. Don’t worry, this is totally normal in most cases, and you most likely didn’t do anything wrong. However, if you use a silicone lubricant on a silicone toy, that can cause the surface to become rough, so watch out for that! When these toys develop rough patches, they can cause irritation during use but don’t fret; often, they can be smoothed down with an emery board. If you try to address rough patches on your toy and they don’t improve, it may be time to consider retiring that toy and finding something new.


Discoloration: If you notice your pocket pussy changing color-- whether in its entirety or spots-- take a moment to think about whether you have used any new lubricants or cleaning products on it. Discoloration can be caused by a bunch of stuff, but it often indicates something is wrong with your lube, cleaning fluid, or the sleeve itself. If you can figure out the cause and it’s not something that could be harmful to you, then you and your slightly discolored toy can still be happy together. If you can’t figure out what caused the color change, you may want to stop using your current pocket pussy and get something new. 


For Motorized Toys Only: If you have a pocket pussy that vibrates or provides motorized suction or stroking, keep an eye out for rust or battery leaks. As rust and battery acid are not things you want near your penis, it’s time for a new pocket pussy.

How Often Should You Clean Your Pocket Pussy?

I’m going to give it to you straight: You really need to clean your pocket pussy every single time you use it, no ifs ands or butts. Because a dirty stroker can harbor bacteria, this is a health issue. To avoid exposing your penis to bacteria and risking infection, it’s best to clean your pocket pussy immediately after use. 


Some people also like to clean their pocket pussy before use as well. Why? If your stroker didn’t dry completely after your last use/cleaning, the lingering moisture could lead to mold, which you definitely don’t want to rub against your penis! Cleaning your pocket pussy before use completely avoids any potential issues.


How To Clean Your Pocket Pussy

Now it’s time to get down to business! Honestly, though, cleaning a pocket pussy is a pretty simple process. For most pocket pussy models, it is a simple matter of wiping everything clean with a warm soapy washcloth. It's worth noting that the ideal soap for cleaning your pocket pussy is a mild soap, not those with strong detergents.


Some materials will need to be treated differently during cleaning, so it’s important to know your own pocket pussy well. If it is made of more realistic materials like Cyberskin, you want to use a very small amount of soap to avoid breaking down the material. Additionally, some ultra-realistic materials may feel a bit sticky after washing -- the more realistic your toy, the more likely this will happen. Don’t panic, the solution is very simple: once the toy is dry, apply some cornstarch to the surface. This will let your pocket pussy stay as smooth, soft, and supple as possible. If you aren’t sure what your pocket pussy is made of (or the ideal way to clean it), always check the instructions first. That way, you not only know how to clean it but also avoid how not to clean it. Let's use Cyberskin as an example again: Because it is made of porous materials, find out if there is a designated toy cleaner for it. It would be a mistake to sterilize a Cyberskin toy with boiling water, as it may cause damage.


Cleaning Pocket Pussies With Electrical Parts

These days you can get a pocket pussy with all sorts of bells and whistles! If your toy of choice has a vibration, suction, or any automatic stroking, or if it is something you have to charge or put batteries in, you need to be a bit more careful when you clean it. While some motorized devices are waterproof many are not, and you want to avoid getting water into the motors or electrical parts. The best way to clean these kinds of pocket pussies is to use a damp cloth with your chosen cleaning fluid and carefully wipe each part of the pussy.


Storing Your Pocket Pussy

As important as it is to properly clean your pocket pussy, it is equally important to properly dry it. This is why you want to think about your stroker storage. Sure, you want to keep it both discrete and convenient, but you also need to make sure it doesn’t turn into a dark, damp sleeve full of mold and bacteria! Proper storage will keep your pocket pussy in good condition over time, which means more pleasure for you!


First things first, you need to make sure it is completely dry. This is, believe it or not, the trickiest part of pocket pussy maintenance because the snug ridges and folds that make a toy so good at stimulating a penis also make it prone to staying kind of damp. The easiest and most effective ways to dry a pocket pussy depend on your particular model. Some can be turned inside out or have a stand to help facilitate air drying. For any pocket pussy you want to make sure you give it plenty of time to air dry or, if you want to speed up the process, you can carefully use a blow dryer on a low, cool setting to dry the sleeve inside and out.


Once your toy is completely dry, you want to store it in a cool, dry place. You can use a sturdy box, like the one your stroker came in. If you are storing multiple pocket pussies, they should be in separate boxes or separate bags in the same box. This is because some toy materials don’t play well together and will begin to degrade if they contact with each other. The best way to avoid this is to ensure they don’t touch at all when they are in storage. 


Lots of toys degrade over time and with use but taking these simple steps will help keep your pocket pussy in its best condition so you can enjoy it as long as possible.
