My first glass toy looked basically identical to this one, except that it had some swirls on one end. I would post a picture but I'm taking a lazy day today. I bought mine at a sex shop in my area.
I honestly didn't warm up to glass immediately. It took me a day or two to get the feel of it. I hated how long it took glass to warm up, but eventually I started to respect and cherish the cold feeling of glass inside of you.
The one thing I loved is how you barely need any lubrication to use a glass toy, since they are non-porous. I have a lot of trouble makin my own self-lubrication due to my hormonal imbalances and medications. Glass is just perfect for me for that very reason.
Another reason is that I don't need to stop all the fun on my period. Other toys absorb your blood and germs, when glass doesn't absorb crap. So who cares if you're bleeding a little bit?
Ever since I bought my first glass toy, I would say that a ood 80-90% of my toys that I buy are made of nothing but Pyrex glass.
It is definitely a love affair...
