peepshow toys glossary

Did you know that the word glossary is derived from the greek word "glossa" which means tongue?   


When deciding what adult toys to purchase, the selection can be overwhelming.  Add to that the confusion of scary words like "phthalates" or "borosilicate glass", and your head (understandably) might start to spin.  We prepared this concise glossary to try to clarify those confusing words, and we will update this page as we continue to add to our inventory.   


"Borosilicate glass" - is a type of glass composed of silica and boron oxide.  Sold under a bunch of trade names, including "Pyrex", borosilicate glass has a wide variety of uses ranging from cookware to lab equipment as well as a component of high quality products such as implantable medical devices, devices used in space exploration, and (insert shameless plug here) glass dildos for purchase on  



"peepshow toys" - an online, adult toy store, committed to removing the stigma associated with adult pleasure items, while focusing on educating its consumers to purchase self-pleasure items made of body-safe materials.  


"Phthalates" - are chemical compounds mainly used as "plasticizers" (substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability and longevity).  Phthalates are thought to be linked to health problems such as breast cancer, endocrine disruption, birth defects and allergies.
