WHAT ARE THESE ICONS?

Built in America


Doc Johnson was born in 1976. Since then, one theme that has remained constant is our strong commitment to American manufacturing. Today, not only do we produce the majority of our products in America, but we also strive to create the most high- quality, innovative, and body friendly hand-crafted products that are Made in America.


Vibrates


Vibrations allow reaching orgasm faster and more easily. Many women, who were unable to climax before, reported success when using vibrators. Use of vibrators improves a couple's experience resulting in better relationships and sense of wellbeing. Most vibrators use an internal motor to generate movement. The motor spins an off-center weight around inside the vibrator. The force of the spinning weight causes vibration.


Vac-U-Lock System


Vac-U-Lock™ is the world's first patented harness system, offering endless possibilities for you to embrace your fantasies. The Vac-U-Lock™ system creates a vacuum, sealing the attachment to the plug and harness for increased stability with limited rotation and slipping. Application of Vac-U-Lock™ powder into the hole of the attachment prior to placing on the Vac-U-Lock™ plug is imperative. The Vac-U-Lock™ not only secures the attachments in place, it allows the attachments to be removed and exchanged with other attachments for ultimate versatility.


O-Ring Harness Compatible


Compatible with any harness that allows for an o-ring to be used.


Multi-Function


Multi-function describes the vibrational possibilities that vibrators offer. Some multi- function vibrators will vibrate at different speeds - slow to fast. Other multi-function vibrators will feature pulsing vibration and in some instances escalating vibration. Some sophisticated vibrators will have vibrational patterns programed into their computer chips. Multi-function can also refer to vibrators that have 2 or more motors that operate together or separately.


Multi-Speed


Multi-speed refers to vibrators that have more than one speed setting. Many vibrators have a dial controller which begins with soft vibration and increases to strong vibration.


Phthalate-Free


Phthalates are added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, and longevity.


Water Proof


While most battery operated and plug in toys should not be completely submerged, our dildos that do not vibrate can be totally immersed in water. Once the batteries are removed and/or the plug is unplugged, our waterproof products can be washed with soap and water. We suggest keeping most products out of the water to increase their longevity. We use icons to signify products that are waterproof for easy cleaning.



Water Resistant


Products that are labeled as water-resistant should not be fully submerged in water, but are safe to use around water and in wet environments. Water-resistant items should be cleaned by spraying them with Doc Johnson toy cleaner or using a washcloth, soap, and water. Never place water-resistant items in the dishwasher or immerse them in water to clean.


Cruelty-Free


Doc Johnson has been certified cruelty-free by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), through their Beauty without Bunnies program. Doc Johnson has signed PETA’s statement of assurance and has verified that neither Doc Johnson nor their ingredient suppliers conduct, commission, or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products.

UltraSKYN


UltraSKYN™, formerly known as UR3®, offers a truly realistic intimate experience. It's our best-selling Ultra-Realistic family of products. It is by far the most lifelike material in the industry. It perfectly mimics the feel and touch of human skin. UltraSKYN™ also offers progressive dual density in many options and provides a genuine lifelike feel, just like being with a real partner. That’s why we make all of our bestselling strokers and masturbators, as well as some incredible dongs and dildos in UltraSKYN™


Realistic 5.0


R5® is our 5th generation Realistic® material that we specifically use for our Realistic® Cocks. We believe that it perfectly blends the right amount of softness and rigidity, complimenting each other and delivering the realistic feel of an erect penis. R5® is made from PVC, is phthalate-free, and always made in America.


Acrylonitrile Butadiene Stryene


ABS is the most well-known hard plastic. The primary properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. ABS’s light weight and ability to be injection-molded and extruded make it useful in manufacturing a wide selection of products. Due to the fact that ABS is always in a hard state, it does not contain any plasticizers, which makes it ALWAYS phthalate-free and non-porous.


Polypropylene


Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer resin (hard plastic) chosen for its safety and durability. This material is hypoallergenic and phthalate-free, easily cleaned by spraying with Doc Johnson toy cleaners or washing with mild soap and warm water, and compatible for use with our silicone and water-based glides.


Polyvinyl Chloride


PVC is one of the most widely used materials in the world. It is used in such a wide variety of applications due to its durability and cost. In the adult market PVC allows the flexibility to make the toys soft, medium or firm. PVC also allows for a beautiful array of fun colors. You will find many of your favorite and bestselling Doc Johnson toys made from this material; from vibrators to dongs to dildos and butt plugs, including items made abroad to our many items we proudly make in America.


Thermoplastic Elastomer


TPE is commonly used materials due to their ease of manufacturing, cost effectiveness, and unique properties. Combining some of the best of plastic qualities, TPE has the ability to be used in a wide array of adult products. TPE does not need plasticizers to soften the material; therefore it is always phthalate-free. With strong tear strength, TPE can be made very soft without the threat of the product breaking down, which is why it is the material of choice for Doc’s amazing masturbators.


Thermoplastic Rubber


TPR is commonly used materials due to their ease of manufacturing, cost effectiveness, and unique properties. Combining some of the best rubber qualities, TPR has the ability to be used in a wide array of adult products. TPR does not need plasticizers to soften the material; therefore it is always phthalate-free. With strong tear strength, TPR can be made very soft without the threat of the product breaking down, which is why it is the material of choice for Doc’s amazing masturbators.


Silicone


Considered to be the most hygienic material in the adult market, silicone is widely used due to its nonporous and insert physical nature, durability, the ability to be thoroughly cleaned, and lack of phthalates. Silicone is a great replacement to PVC because it mimics a lot of the capabilities, softness and flexibility; for instance, while staying attractive to the more health-conscious consumer. Silicone is considerably more expensive than other materials due to its exceptional qualities and the process in which it is used to make products.


USB Rechargeable


Most of Doc Johnson's new generations of silicone vibrators and other products are designed to recharge via USB power rather than rely on disposable batteries. Any USB rechargeable item always includes a charging cable that can be plugged into any device with USB ports built in, such as a personal computer or mobile phone charger.
