For years, I've loved pyrex glass in my kitchen, but it's only recently that I've come to love it in the bedroom as well. Not surprisingly, the reasons I love it are the same in both places -- it's sturdy, easy to clean, easy to use, holds temperatures well, and it looks stunning.
This pyrex glass dildo offers a smooth texture, is made from solid glass, and features an eye-catching, hypnotic blue swirl. The sensation that it offers, because of the heft and smoothness of the glass, is one of soft fullness.
The other thing I love about glass? It's completely odorless. No funky plastic or rubber smells, now or ever. Delight.
One of the reasons that I love this dildo so much IS because of the shape. I've always loved cocks that have that lovely "vertical smile" shape to them, and this toy mimics the best of those. It doesn't have the crazy angle and thickness that some g-spot toys have, and I actually prefer the slightly lazier curve and the smaller diameter (about 1") of this one. Despite the fact that it's glass (a pretty non-realistic material), this toy actually feels surprisingly like the real thing when it's inside.
My single complaint is with the hand-held end of the toy -- there's a circular base, but it's pretty small and that doesn't leave a lot of room to hold onto it and maneuver it when you're thrusting. It's especially hard if the dildo is fully inserted and/or if you're attempting to do it yourself. I would have liked to see a little more in the way of a "handle," just for usability, even though I know that could take away from the aesthetics of the toy as a whole.
It's definitely small enough to travel well, and it comes in a pretty, padded bag so that you can take it with you without worrying about breakage.
To me, this is the kind of toy whose performance depends on two things:
The shape, as I mentioned above, works pretty well for me (other than the base). This, however, probably depends on your body size and your personal desires. If you like something that has a strong bend, a rough texture or a larger g-spot bulb, then this toy might not work as well for you.
The user, of course, is also completely subjective. I found that I wasn't as good with this toy by myself. I don't have the reach to give it the proper thrusting angle and speed that I most like. In someone else's hands, however, it was really easy to get all the positions, people and toys into alignment. For me, this toy works best when I'm on my back, the curve angled upward. Doggy style wasn't bad, but took a bit more maneuvering.
With any toy, but especially a glass toy with a curve in it, I think the most important element of performance is communication with your partner. Talking about speed, angle, temperature, etc. throughout the process can be really beneficial to your pleasure.
Again, glass is SO easy to care for. Throw it in the dishwasher, boil it, wash it with soap and water, bleach it.... any of the above and you're ready to start playing again.
The bag that comes with it is especially nice. Lightly padded for protection, and with a drawstring so it won't fall out. The bag not only protects the toy, it makes it easy to find in the toy drawer as well.
Of course, don't drop the damn thing. It's hefty and solid, but it's still glass, and you'll be sad if it's in a bunch of pieces on the floor.
