For a first-timer: Glass, metal, wood, or ceramic?

Nazaress Nazaress 02/05/2012

I've never had a dildo before, flexible or no. I've only used vibrators. I was thinking for my first one, I'd try something different and get one of these hard materials. Which one is good for a beginner?

The Rainbow nubby wand is similiar to the Rainbow Heart wand. Glass is great with any lube of your choice!

Glass is a great beginner. Speaking from experience.

I already have a silicone toy. I'm not looking for a dildo made of material such as silicone or other things that vibrators are typically made of. I'm looking for a hard material, such as glass. But thank you for your input.

I'd go with glass, largely because it tends to be less expensive than the other three. If you go with glass and find you don't like it, then it's not a huge loss. It's also fairly light (though not as light as wood) and so it's not too tiring to use. Just be careful when using hard materials - try not to bump your cervix (at least not too hard), or you might bruise it.

I'd go with glass. There's so many different options when it comes to glass that it'll be easy to find something in the price and size range you want.

I would go with glass, better variety, it's gorgeous, and (generally) cheaper than a good metal or wood piece.

I'd say either glass or ceramic. Personally, I've had my eye on that Lovemoiselle Elodie you posted in the comparison links...

if you go with glass, don't be surprised by how freaking cold they can get!

I'd go with glass - but not too much texture to start out. I think the Rainbow nubby has way too much texture for a beginner.

Glass, you can warm it or cool it.

Like has been said, go with the glass. It can be much more affordable, and if you don't like it, you are not out much.

Glass is a safe material, cleans easily, and is perfect if you like to play with solid toys. Glass is also one of the few materials that allows you to use it for both anal and vaginal play, but just clean before you switch it to the other hole

Eden has a great selection of glass toys at very reasonable prices.

Glass has a lot of great features, and it's less expensive than the other materials you listed.

Glass because you can do temperature play and it's easiest to care for

Honestly I'd go for something softer and work up to the harder materials..but I agree.. glass.

My first dildo was glass, and I loved it I think glass is very beginner friendly, with a lower initial investment if it turns out you're not a fan of hard materials.
