This dildo is made of tempered blue glass that’s the color of midnight. It looks almost black in a moderately lit room, but has a lovely deep blue iridescence when it's held directly under a light or is in bright light. It’s firm, completely seamless, and very smooth and slick. The only texture comes from the design of the shaft: a rippled texture from where the bubbles attach to each other.
Tempered glass is resistant to breaking and shattering, but the Bubble Thriller should be checked prior to use for any chips or cracks. It should be discarded if any are found.
The Bubble Thriller is handcrafted and has a lovely design. It’s not realistic, but it’s obviously a dildo. Its 6 1/2" length is segmented into 7 bubbles that are stacked atop one another, forming a gentle, subtle curve. The smallest bubble has a 7/8” diameter, and the next five bubbles gradually increase in diameter until they reach 1 1/8”. The bottom bubble is much larger, at 1 1/2" in diameter .
If inserting the dildo starting with the smallest bubble first, it can be inserted approximately 5”. The top bubble’s rounded tip and small size help make insertion easy. If you choose to insert it with the largest bubble first, the insertable length drops to about 4 1/2" (you’ll need to hold on to more than just the bottom bubble). While it’s safe, and may be more effective, to insert the larger bubble first vaginally, this should not be done anally due to the size difference of the bubbles.
This dildo is best for vaginal use by those who enjoy firm toys with no give, like a smaller girth, and prefer feeling texture rather than smoothness during gentle to moderate thrusting. For anal use, those who like beads or segmented toys over smooth toys will find the Bubble Thriller a nice option.
The Bubble Thriller isn’t large and can be easily hidden. Care should be taken if traveling with the toy, and it will travel more safely in a carry-on versus a checked bag.
Just a little bit of lube makes the Bubble Thriller slick and easy to insert. Vaginally, the toy’s gentle curve may not provide enough of an angle for g-spot stimulation, but if it does, it provides firm pressure. The bubbles provide a pleasant sensation during thrusting when the small bubble is inserted first. Used this way, the toy is easy to hold and control by the large bubble on the other end, although you’ll want to make sure it’s not too covered with lube so you can get a good grip.
When inserted vaginally using the large bubble first, the toy seems much more filling, and the shaft texture isn’t quite as noticeable when thrusting. G-spot stimulation may be possible when using the dildo this way as well. It’s harder to grip the toy on the smaller bubbles, and not having lube on these lower bubbles or your hand is a necessity.
Anally, the first (small) bubble is easy to insert, and the size of the small bubbles allow it to be inserted one bubble at a time, with a rest in between, up to the base bubble. The size difference up to the largest bubble isn’t a great amount, and the bubbles feel wonderful sliding in. The narrowing of the bubbles is not enough to keep this securely in like a plug, but it does not have the tendency to slip out as easily as slim plugs of this size.
No matter which way you use this dildo, incorporating temperature play adds some fun. It just takes a few minutes in warm or cold water to change the temperature of the toy, and it holds the temperature well during use.
Glass is very easy to clean. Simply wash it with antibacterial soap and rinse with warm water, then dry. This toy can also be boiled for a few minutes, run through the dishwasher in the top rack (no soap), cleaned with a 10% bleach solution, or washed with a toy cleaner. It’s best to store the Bubble Thriller in a padded bag to minimize the chance of chipping or breaking. Always check for any chips or cracks in the dildo before use, and discard if any are found.
Any lubricant can be used with glass, and it just takes a small amount to make the Bubble Thriller slick and ready for action.
The Bubble Thriller comes in a black box with light text. The toy is visible through the front, and its picture is on the side. The back gives information on glass and how to clean it. In addition, a QR code on the side can be scanned which, when reviews are in place on the Don Wands site, will allow you to read customer reviews (the page does not currently exist). Inside of the box, the Bubble Thriller rests in a clear plastic form with a flip up front panel. The box can be used for storage, but you may wish to use a padded pouch.
The packaging is tasteful, but not discreet. It would be suitable for gifting if your recipient didn’t mind receiving a sex toy.
When I first got this dildo, I didn’t have any plans to use it vaginally – to me it screamed anal play with the bubbled shaft. After looking it over, I did decide to try it vaginally first, though, with water-based lube. I was surprised that, with the small shaft diameter, I could easily feel the bubbles as I moved it in and out. It was tricky to use for g-spot stimulation for me – just a bit more curve would have made it more effective.
Using it with the small bubble inserted first felt great, and then I flipped it around. It was a bit harder to hold, but I liked the feel of the large bubble, even though the shaft bubbles weren’t as noticeable.
I really enjoyed this as an anal toy. Even without a tapered tip, the size of the first small bubble made it very easy to insert; it was easiest to insert lying on my side. The rest of the bubbles weren’t so extreme in size difference that they were difficult and, like with anal beads or other “bubbled” toys, the rest between each bubble gave me a chance to adjust to the feeling. The 5” of insertable length wasn’t too much to take, and the bottom bubble had a large enough diameter that I didn’t worry about it going any farther in – it also looked a bit decorative. My husband enjoyed watching this go in and be in, and he helped (after being cautioned to go slowly). When inserted, this didn’t pop out unexpectedly, which was a nice surprise. The ball at the end also didn’t impede any vaginal penetration.
