I agree. Sorry if my reply sounded accusatory....it was not a good day. It most likely was defective....maybe not baked long enough. We have advised the factory, and have re-tested several from each lot we have received, and they all seem fine. Thank you for your input as this is the feedback we need to make our products better. Please keep in mind that with over 3000 branded items, as well as over 3000 private label items, we ship over 2 million units a month. We batch test all production runs as they are produced, but with the kind of volume we do, sometimes a part of a batch slips through. We apologize to anyone who receives a defective product, and we stand behind all items 100%. Our Warranty provider at link addresses warranty issues, and for a nominal fee to cover shipping and handling, will replace any defectives within the guidelines of the warranty period. Thanks again for everyone's help and honesty...oh, and the measurements that were provided by us were incorrect, and are being updated at our site link under the downloads section labeled "Product Specifications."

I will have the exact makeup of the coating in a few days. As soon as I do I will post it. The factory was closed for Chinese New Year, and the people we deal with are traveling, but promised via email to get us the MSDS (material safety data sheet).

Hey Al,

Glad to see you here.

I just got a Couture Collection vibe -- are there going to be any smaller versions of this toy coming out?

No harm done, everyone has bad days, and we understand that mistakes happen. Thanks for being so thorough in following through on this for us. We flip out because we care, and because we know that you are committed to improving wherever possible. We all over-reacted a little bit, but I guess that just goes to show how much safety matters to both you as a company and to us as reviewers.

Thanks! The factory confirms receipt of our inquiry, and will have the MSDS for us on Monday. You will all have the information as soon as I receive it. Good weekend everyone!

This is not our product, but I wanted to offer some insight on glass diameters. I have not seen the product, but I can tell you that 3" diameter glass is not a standard size. The largest available Chinese glass is the metric equivalent of 2 inches. For higher quality glass ie: Simax, Schott, the largest standard diameter is the equivalent of 1.75 inches.

It is most likely a glass decal. Images can be printed on a paper backing, kind of like a stick on tattoo--and applied to the surface. If it properly annealed, or baked onto the glass, it should not be able to be removed at all. It should actually become one piece in theory, meting to the other.

And when I say glass decal, i mean the print is actually made out of glass. There is no other surface material that is be able to withstand the high temperatures required to melt borosilicate glass. Any other material would have melted away before reaching 1400 degrees.

OK, I just looked at the item. It has to be glass on the surface. I am not aware of any other material in existence that could handle the kiln temperature. Rest assured, it is a safe application. It is not a new type of application by any means..XHale and Phallix used to put these "chips" on the tips of our dildos--this is just the first time a manufacturer has applied it along the shaft. If it's applied properly, there should no worries or concerns.

The plant where this was manufactured has confirmed that it is lead free, and free of any toxins of any kind. Under normal use, it is safe to use.

I too have reviewed one of these toys, the smooth glass probe, and it is fun! I have not had any problems with the tattoo ink, and it is my first glass toy, making it fun every time i use it!

Yeah, I find it interesting and really odd that on the product page it says, both for this probe and for the inked glass probe that there is as little as 2.5 inches for an insertable length, when obviously you're going to buy it so you can insert the whole thing. Why is that?

Hmmmm....where did you see the 2.5" insertable length specification? I just checked our site, and it shows the Probe at 6" and the Dual Probe at 7.5". These are not "overall" lengths, we only measure what is usable...so I'm a bit perplexed where this info came from?

Not at all...beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I think that is really great that our items are used as art. Our offices are overflowing with art...our owner, Susan Colvin is a fine art collector, and every wall, in every office is adorned with beautiful works. Makes for a more relaxing work environment, as well as a creativity boost for everyone.

It's kind of disappointing that the painted on tattoo on these comes off like that, especially because of the price of them to begin with. If they did do a clear glass finish over the "tattoo", unfortunately, this would up the price. Remember, most sex toys are labeled for "Novelty Only", which releases them from most actions/claims against them.

That said, I have rarely been disappointed with my CE products (and I have several of 'em!). So, I chalk it up to an good idea that wasn't the greatest.

Hi again folks...just a small comment today. Novelty manufacturers do not put "Sold as a Novelty Only" to avoid liability...it's a legal requirement to define our products as non-medical devices. If we define our products as medical devices, they require FDA testing and approval. Based on that, the variety and hi-tech toys everyone enjoys today, would be literally years in the making, and so high priced, nobody would be able to afford them. Just another nugget of useless information

Could you just say "Not a medical device" instead? I've always felt that the novelty-only phrase trivializes toys.

Also, if you can share with us when EF will be receiving Jopen Intensities, that would be wonderful to know.
