Is anyone else concerned about the glass breaking? I mean, I know its strong, but still. Or am I just paranoid?

Since you asked, you're paranoid. I happen to own this and it's quite nice and durable. It would take a series of specific events for it to shatter. None of which would happen while just playing with it.

You don't need to worry about it, unless you use it to crush ice cubes or hammer nails I have this glass dildo & many others, they are all very solid & hefty. I'd only worry if they were thin & hollow.

But let's say you drop it on a hard floor, make sure you feel it all over to check for chips & hold it up to the light to look for fractures. I've dropped one on tile & it didn't show any damage! If you find any, don't use it.

The only other way you could break it is by subjecting it to an extreme change in temperature, called thermal shock. For instance microwaving it or freezing it, although even that may not break it. The glass was specially processed to be stronger than regular glass.

I have no worries. I've used many glass toys and never an issue - vaginally for my wife - or anally for me.

FWIW here are my tests with a tempered borosilicate glass toy:

Falls: Multiple falls from about 14 feet onto concrete: no detectable damage
Impact: hit with a 4-pound sledge: no detectable damage
Temperature: 350* oven to ice water multiple times: no detectable damage

Temperature: heat to red-hot with a torch and plunge in ice water: yep, that cracked it. After that hitting it with a hammer would break it (the heat/cool destroyed the temper).

In short, I no longer worry about my glass toys causing problems.

That's really impressive!

I never worried. If they sell it for this purpose I usually trust that it's been tested. Eden is a good place and I trust them to not have items that would be unsafe without a warning at least. Like with jelly toys.

Great to read these results.

Wow that is amazing! I never worried about my glass toys but now I feel especially safe with them.

Boy, that toy must have pissed you off

I love empirical data! Thanks so much for sparing anyone else from having to use part of their collection for testing.

The glass that sex toys are made of is AMAZINGLY durable. I can personally attest that I've dropped glass toys several times and have never encountered so much as a chip or scratch.

I didn't have a problem with it at all. I just had several glass toys, had stopped using that one, and many people were asking questions about how fragile glass toys are.

I admit, I was a little skeptical too. Haha. I'm glad I saw this before making another discussion about it. ScottA's tests are very comforting. LOL. I probably would have done the same thing.

It seems like everybody else has already answered your question. I'll admit, I was a little skeptical about glass for a long time, but it's quite a different glass from that of most drinking glasses and the like.
I own the Bent Graduate (amazing, by the way) and the Icicles No. 37, but I have no fear of them breaking during use. Glass is just an amazing material all around.

My biggest concern with the toy in question is the lack of a flared base. You will likely know how far in it is by the graduation, of course. Just be careful and enjoy!

I never have concerns about breaking glass. Actually, breaking plastic may be more of a threat!

If you're still not convinced, ToyTimeTim posted some videos a while back where he really tested the limits of durability on some glass toys. You should definitely check them out!

The glass borosilicate toys are durable BUT not all glass toys are borosilicate. A friend bought a glass toy at a home party, it rolled off the counter the second day she had it and it broke. I have borosilicate glass that has had no damage from slips/falls/drops.
UNLESS your orifices are, umm, lethal(?)you are good to go safely.
ENJOY...

You must have some buns of steel to be worried about that. Lol.

Pyrex is extremely durable, it's not like a drinking glass that will shatter into 10000 pieces if you drop it. You can drop Pyrex onto hard tile and it won't shatter. You will be fine, if you do drop it and you're worried, just check for chips if anything. It also is not the kind of glass to shatter into tons of pieces. If it did break, it would break into big pieces. And it most likely won't break, especially won't break inside you. Unless you truly do have the buns of steel. You'll be fine!

There is no need to worry about it. I've readin the forums that people have dropped them onto hard floors and they didn't break.
