    UR3

    Stands for Ultra Realistic 3.0, a trademarked sex toy material with a soft, lifelike feel. UR3 is a type of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that does not contain any phthalates. It is hypoallergenic and considered suitable for people with skin sensitivities.

    UR3 can be cleaned with sex toy cleaners or with warm water and a very mild soap. Because it is porous, it is very important to clean it after every use. UR3 toys often ship with a “renewal” powder, which is commercially available; this powder helps the toy to retain its soft, hyper-realistic feel. Users should store UR3 toys in plastic bags or in dedicated storage cases to reduce the chances of microbial growth.

    UR3 is commonly used for male sex toys. It is compatible with water-based lubricants, but silicone- and oil-based lubricants can permanently damage the material.

    Urethra

    Located above the vaginal opening in women and in the penis in men, the urethra is the tube connecting the genitals to the urinary bladder. Humans urinate through their urethras, and men ejaculate semen and sperm through this opening

    Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

    Commonly abbreviated as UTI, a urinary tract infection is a localized infection that affects the bladder, kidneys or another part of the urinary tract. The infection often causes pain and discomfort, and treatment typically involves a course of antibiotics. Women are generally much more susceptible to urinary tract infections than men, but UTIs are relatively common in both sexes.

    To avoid infections, a person can maintain a healthy diet, urinate 15-20 minutes after intercourse, avoid unprotected sex, and use appropriately pH-balanced lubricants.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Origanum Vulgare (Oregano)

    A plant from the mint family, commonly used to flavor foods. Oregano is one of the world’s most popular herbs, and it has been used for centuries as a folk remedy for a variety of conditions including skin inflammation and respiratory issues. However, there is no evidence to suggest that oregano is effective in these types of medicinal applications.

    Oregano contains many antioxidants, and it is used in some skin care products for this reason. It also has a pleasant scent, and it may have some mild antibacterial properties.

    In large amounts, oregano can cause minor health issues, but small amounts of the herb are used in over-the-counter skin products. It is generally considered safe.
