I've never experimented with glass before. only silicone. the silicone scares me less because it's soft and has give. but for whatever reason I'm kinda scared that the glass could break inside of me. is this even possible? or am I just crazy?

I don't want to say that it's not possible for the glass to break inside of you, but the chances of that happening are extremely slim.

The glass used in sex toys is insanely strong. It's nigh-impossible to break it with your hands alone, so the chances of it breaking inside you are even slimmer.

Often, the only way to break one is to A: drop it on a hard surface (and usually a glass toy will survive this) or B: have it go from freezing cold to boiling hot or vice versa very quickly (and again, it may survive this). Additionally, in the event that one does break, the kind of glass used will break into big chunks, rather than a million little splinters.

There are some things you can (and should) do to keep a glass toy in tip-top condition. Avoid wild temperature changes (it's safe to boil a glass toy to clean it, mind). Keep it wrapped in cloth to prevent scratches - padded bags are best because they also protect from impact damage. Try not to drop a glass toy anywhere hard, and always carefully inspect it for scratches and fractures before you play - if you see any, don't use it.

There's a chance it could break, but I have dropped glass dildos onto concrete from a height of 12 feet, pounded on them with hammers, heated them to 350F in the oven and plunged them into ice water, and there was no damage to the dildo. It's very unlikely that you'll have a problem if you use a tempered borosilicate glass toy.

Glass toys are perfectly safe when used as directed. If you drop one and it cracks - throw it away. I have glass toys that are 5+ years old and they are in prefect condition.

nah it's pretty strong stuff. plus if it does break, it won't shatter like normal glass. it's made out of the same type of glass that people use for cooking. when it breaks, it separates into chunks instead of shards.

I agree with everyone else, pretty hard to break one during normal use. Like ScottA, I have done my own testing and while I did get one to break it was during extreme testing, certainly nothing you could do during normal use.

Check for cracks, scratches and chips before use and you will be fine.

I trust the long history of glass dildos and the performance of modern materials - never give it a thought

They don't use window glass to make dildos. Your body is not strong enough to break one, just make sure to inspect it before each use, in case it got dropped and chipped and you don't know it, although it would take a pretty impressive impact, or possibly a hard fall at the exact worst angle, to manage it.

During normal use, this would never happen.

I haven't heard any reports on them breaking. I work around glass that is ceramized as these products are. Ceramized glass is heated at very high temperatures that make it almost impossible to break That being said, I haven't heard of any products breaking inside of anyone. If not taken care of they can chip and if that happens you need to throw your toy away. When you purchase your first glass toy, inspect it to make sure there aren't any chips in it. If so send it back for a replacement..

Have you ever held a glass toy? They are super heavy and thick glass. I am not saying it couldn't happen, because anything can happen, but I think its probably pretty unlikely. I am new to the whole toy thing and decided to make my first one a glass one because they are just so pretty, I was worried about the same thing until I got it and felt it.

I was afraid to try glass until I became a part of the Eden community. Just seeing how popular and safe the material is was enough for me. I'm really glad I took other contributors advice because I now love glass dildos. They're really great. As long as you properly store and care for your glass, it shouldn't break. Just check it for scratches and chips before use.

Pyrex glass is really really strong. It takes a LOT to make it break.

I've had one for years...I probably couldn't break it if I tried! I've dropped it on marble floors, countertops, wood floors, etc. Not a scratch on it! Hmmm...since it's Pyrex, I wonder if you could put it in the oven to sterilize it, next to your pot-roast dinner, hehehe.

Being similar to pyrex you should be able to bake it but I'd stick to running it through the dishwasher or toss into some boiling water.

I'm amused by your dildo tests Good that it survived all of that!

I don't think that is really possible.
And about the Swirled Blue, you should just go for it and get it. It's a great dildo- definitely my favorite glass one.

This is such a great quality of glass and is extremely difficult to break. It cannot be broken inside of you. Very safe.
