Anal toys: how does glass compare?

paige09nicole paige09nicole
I like anal. However, I am very small and my boyfriend is quite large. I have a couple of butt plugs, one that is too small and then another one that is quite a jump from the small one. I like glass toys and Im about to order a plug that is in between my two plugs but I was just wondering how you all liked glass plugs?

Glass is excellent when it comes to surface texture like nubs and swirls. The smoothness is great for easy insertion, but be aware of the presence exerted by the rigidity of glass. It makes it feel larger than a soft toy of the same or even greater size.

I'm a big fan of glass. Love the smoothness but can get a variety of sensations by picking one with waves like these:

I like glass the best out of all the materials, but not so much for anal. Silicone is better for that in my opinion, it is softer and more forgiving. I do have Moon shine butt plug and I have Icicles No 1 for glass anal toys, but use them more vaginally. I like silicone toys so far in my bum.

I totally love my swell wand, she is my personal favorite dildo, but if you use her anally be very careful she does not have a very big base or curve to help.

I've only used rubber and silicone plugs, but I'd really like to try a glass plug.

I like glass, but also like silicone, stainless steal and wood as well. The benefits of glass are I can use any lube with it, it holds temperature well, and it makes from some of the most beautiful toys in existence. Aslo there are some types of toys you really need a hard material for like juicer dildos.

Question! How is silicone for "lazy" people? Just curious

Me, I don't like glass. It just doesn't sit right with me anally or vaginally. HOWEVER, I found that stainless steel is absolutely lovely, as well as silicone (which is my favorite material).

About half our toys are glass, and if it's going in MY butt, that's what I reach for!

Wood? Not sure I would want any wooden toys to go inside me, just sounds strange.

While I like how pretty glass toys are, I just can't deal with how unyielding they are...

glass texture is too hard for me vaginally. i dont think anally it would do anything either. whether it's hard texture or.. honestly now that i think about it really glass at all, just not my cup o tea. i like some give in my toys.

For me so long as the toy is made from steel glass or silicon it's really just the shape that matters.

You have the same "size" issues as us. I too like anal and am VERY tight...so we choose our toys carefully. SMALL is always my only choice. Hubby, who is NOT small, fits with lots of lube, care and positioning. SLOW is our only rule.

As for GLASS toys, we have some of all kinds, but glass and metal have the advantage of super, SUPER slick surfaces. With a good SILICONE lube (only kind I would use with glass or metal, but also the only time I do use silicone is IF I am using glass or metal toys), they are SO slick they go in with almost NO effort. Combine this with a lube shooter to get some lube inside you first (they are very narrow syringes with blunt ends) and you have serious comfort to get you ready for your boyfriends visit there later!!!

All gain, no pain...that is OUR motto.

Enjoy!!!

I prefer stainless steel (no worries, very weighty, ergonomic) or glass (no worries, kind of weighty, not ergonomic). My one silicone plug disappointed me (ergonomic, not weighty, worrisome absorbtion of odors/colors), however it was probably more comfortable and great for play (not extended wear).

Personally, I prefer stainless steel, but given the options silicone can offer decent weight depending on size and also offers comfort for long term wear.

I have both and like both. For anal use I strongly recommend avoiding textures until you're more advanced, as they can easily irritate - especially when they're in glass or very stiff silicone (gentle textures in soft silicone are probably OK).

To start with I'd go silicone because it's soft.

Silicone doesn't absorb odors - what happens is that some of the odor causing chemicals attach themselves to the surface of the toy in the same way the red from tomatoes can "attach" to the surface of plastic containers. It can still be "clean" and have no bacteria or stuff on it, and soaking in hot, slightly soapy water seems to help (for stinky plugs I bring them into the shower with me, wash them with dish soap and let the shower water run over them while I wash - seems to work well.

Glass is sooo much easier to clean. Plus its smooth

Compared to silicone I don't see much of a difference between glass and silicone - a quick trip through soap and water in the sink and they're pretty much good to go. Stainless steel isn't much more work, but you do need to make sure that it doesn't stay wet for very long periods or stay exposed to bleach/corrosive solutions (you can get some pitting).
