it was a concern for awhile but then I finally bit the bullet & ordered 2 which ended up being too painful to use.

I was initially but I got one anyway and once I held it in my hands I knew breakage would be difficult and I had nothing to worry about. I love glass now!

No I have never been worried about a glass toy breaking inside me now it breaking if dropped on the floor maybe but doubtful in my house.

I've worried about it but I figured I'd hear about it if it were a problem.

I believe that most of the glass toys are pretty thick, so breaking them would take quite a bit of force.

I recently purchased my first glass toy, an anal plug (Sexy Spades Large).
For some time, I was fascinated by glass toys, but refrained from buying them because I was afraid of dropping or otherwise damaging them. I was impressed by how durable it felt, though; one has to remember that many glass sex toys are made of tempered Pyrex glass, which is durable enough to be used as cookware and in other applications.

In any case, I'm glad I bought one myself. It's still important to inspect it before use just in case it has acquired a chip or crack, but it's a good idea to take a look at any toy before using it.

We have used glass toys with no issues for at least 5 years - no fear what so ever.

I have no fear of my glass toys breaking. I'd hurt myself long before I'd hurt the toy!

Glass toys are extremely unlikely to break with normal use. I've dropped mine on concrete and they weren't even scratched. I doubt anyone has a vagina harder than concrete...

Nope. If they were dangerous, then they wouldn't be sold here, and they wouldn't be so popular. Glass does not automatically equal fragile. They are quite durable, and would take a tremendous amount of force to break.

Well, this isn't quite true. Jelly and other potentially harmful materials are sold here and are very popular, so that logic is flawed.
However, glass is VERY safe. They're not made out of the kind of glass that your average drinking glass or something is made of which breaks easily. They're not hollow and they're made of solid, heavy glass that is not the type that shatters or splinters. It's not going to break during normal use. You have to drop them very hard on a very unyielding surface to break them and even then, it will usually just crack or break off a chunk and then you know to throw it away. You're supposed to check silicone toys routinely to make sure they don't have any scratches, tears, etc in the material and glass should be checked in a similar fashion for cracks or chips, which are unlikely if you don't drop them and store them in a way that prevents them from clinking around too much (padded pouch or a box that holds them). I think it's easier to damage silicone than glass, actually. I've seen a lot of posts about people being afraid a toy would break inside them but that's really not possible as long as you're using boroscilicate (pyrex, tempered) glass toys. They score a perfect 10 on Eden's safety scale. The only safety risks are bruising from rough thrusting (also equally possible with any other rigid material), and extremes of hot and cold due to improper heating or cooling of the toy for temperature play. But in general, glass toys are very durable and safe. Not to mention, compatible with any type of lube you might want to use and easy to clean and sanitizable! Boil it, bleach it, dishwasher, rubbing alcohol, whatever you like. So it's very safe to share between partners or orifices.
This thread here has many other people saying the same.

No. I was a little worried initially, but my glass toys have received so much abuse... being dropped over and over again accidentally... that I now feel pretty confident about their safety.

Sorry if my "flawed logic" was confusing, but I meant that a toy that could shatter and slice someone open, causing grievous bodily injury and possible death, is probably something you would hear about if it was an issue, and probably something that companies such as Eden would be hesitant, at the very least, to carry. With jelly, it's not nearly so grim, as harmful as jelly can be. Eden DOES provide information on the safety of jelly toys, and there are plenty of reviews to back up the warning; customers purchase those toys at their own risk.

I have lots of glass toys and have never had this issue.

The difference is that one type (breaking glass) is direct and immediate harm of a sensational nature, the other (chronic poisoning by chemicals) is long term and not very visual. There are a number of media people who would jump on a story about "slasher sex toys" if they had a chance.

I'm not worried about glass because I tried to break one. It's hard - 12' falls on concrete didn't do it, sledgehammers didn't do it.

No, because I did my research into borosilicate glass and came to the realization that the vaginal muscles are simply not strong enough to break even the type of glass that drinking glasses are composed of. These toys are perfectly safe and will NOT shard or break during use.

I love glass toys. I have never had one break on me, so I guess that is why is it not of concern to me.

I've had glass toys shatter on me but only after it rolled out of bed and hit the tile floor the next morning. I think it'd be pretty impossible to break a toy IN USE. and even if it broke in a dropping accident like I mentioned, you'd know immediately that it was no good because of all the fracture marks that spider along glass when it breaks.

They're pretty safe. Glass is pretty great.

They only worry me when carrying them around or during cleaning, not so much during use.

A little, but the Borosilicate glass I get my toys in are just really durable and haven't chipped yet.

Absolutely not haha! Glass toys are super sturdy, I'm not scared about breaking mine at all.

it used to but after I saw toytimetim drop class toys from a distance on to a steel thing and only one of them broke, I don't think my muscles are strong enough to break the glass
