moregasm black wandAnn Summers has issued a nationwide product recall on a line of sex toys over fears they could break when used for too long.

The shop has issued the precautionary recall on their Moregasm Black Power Wand vibrator, across all 134 stores and online. The shop is displaying a notice saying:

The product complies with all relevant CE safety testing standards, but we have taken this voluntary measure in response to a very small number of isolated reports that the wires in the cord have become exposed at the base of the product over a prolonged period of use.

A spokesperson confirmed that customers will receive a full refund.

All batch codes of the Moregasm Black Power Wand with item code 74701 are thought to be affected.

Sex Toy Handcuffsr Fewer sex toys than children's toys contain dangerous chemicals, according to a new report by a Swedish inspection authority.

In its study conducted in 2016, 2% of the 44 surveyed sex toys that had been imported to Sweden contained banned chemicals, the Swedish Chemicals Agency (SCA) said. In a separate study the year before, the agency tested 112 children's toys in Sweden and found 15% contained banned chemical substances, including lead. An inspector told AFP:

This was a bit surprising. This was the first time we did such a study.

Of the 44 sex toys examined, only one plastic dildo was found to contain a banned substance: chlorinated paraffins, which is suspected of causing cancer.

Three of the 44 examined sex toys, made of artificial leather and bondage tape, contained a type of phthalates used as a plasticiser at levels above a 0.1% threshold, the agency said. That specific type of phthalates is not banned in sex toys but is on the EU list of chemicals of very high concern .

We-Vibe settles privacy legal case after logging vibrator's usage details without obtaining permission

We-Vibe 4 Plus Bluetooth Smartphone Controlled Couples Vibrator - PinkA few months back, the makers of We-Vibe smart sex toys found themselves facing litigation over the use of potentially intimate customer data.  Last week, the company settled things for an undisclosed amount.

Makers Standard Innovation were subject to a class action lawsuit brought by users. The group alleged that the company's connected toys and mobile app collected real-time data on devices' vibration settings, temperature, and duration of use without notifying customers.

In October the company initiated a new privacy policy for users, including easier steps for opting out of data collection. Among other things, the company told customers that they can use their vibrators without the app, or through the app but with data-sharing turned off, for a totally private experience.
