I would choose the wood over the glass simply because I already one a glass dildo and I seldom use it.

I'm a glass lover so I chose the Athena.

I have never tried wood or glass toys yet. But I think I would pick the glass one (Athena) over the wood one.

Out of the two, I'd rather you buy the Athena glass dildo, simply because the material's safer for your body. I'm not telling you not to try wood dildos, but please make sure the wooden toys of your choice have a "body safe" finish; the Handcrafted wooden dildo #197 only have a few layers of "food safe" coating, and that's absolutely not enough protection for your precious parts. If you're interested in wooden dildos, try the ones made by NobEssence, their wooden toys are coated with a "body safe" sealant.

The finish on wood dildos makes me nervous in very principle. I can think of so many ways wood can go wrong, but when something glass is unusable you'll know it immediately XD

The glass is pretty, and it's a lot easier to sterilize.

The Athena. Glass appeals more than wood.

Wood lacks a certain weight that I guess I like

Wood doesn't have the same temperature play qualities.

I'd try the wood since I already have a glass one, but material wise I prefer glass, its so incredibly easy to clean, and the weight is nice.

Thanks for that information, I didn't know about the body safe finish.

I would chose the glass over the wood. I would like to try wood one day. But with the materials it is kind of scary.

You're very welcome. If you are interested in trying wooden dildos, check out the NobEssence Fling and the Smooth S Shape, they're both highly praised by Eden's wooden toy connoisseurs.

I say glass. As much as the wood is protected there is still a chance that it might break

Glass. Just seems better. If you have glass though try something new and go with the wood.

Own both these types toys. Very nice, but different. I would start with glass..as very tough and versatile.

Wood is "warm" and has a unique feel, but needs the most care.

Breaking is not as big an issue as it getting scratched or gouged in storage and then becoming porous to germs and lube.

That is true. It is one of the lightest of "toy" materials.

True, but it is also a uniquely warm material that nothing else feels quite like.

I always am SO careful when cleaning my wood toys. Just don't seem that robust. Glass is far more "hardy".

The wood toys are so heavily "sealed" and glossy, they almost feel like glass or plastic, but they are "warm" to the touch.

I cannot imagine that any sex toy, in wood, being finished in anything that was not "body safe"?

I have nice wood furniture and some nice wood toys. It is a luxury addition to the toy chest, worth having.

I think glass is a great hard dildo substance. It is cheaper than stainless steel (which you should get!) or wood.

On that note, Athena is way too expensive. There are other glass toys in the 30-40 dollar range or cheaper that are high-quality.

Glass gives you more options in my opinion. You can heat it up or chill it for temperature play. Wood isn't quite as versatile.

I JUST bought my FIRST glass toy a little while ago! SO that is why I chose the wooden one; I would like to try IT!

They both look like fun, but I like temperature play. I would probably go for Athena.

I chose the Athena because it has two ends! But, I love glass & never have to worry about reacting to some chemical on/in it & the care & cleaning is a breeze.

I love glass! I've never tried wood, but I'm curious. Does anyone know what, if anything, wood pieces are sealed with?

I was all about glass toys (non porous, which is wood's major drawback in my opinion) when I had a glass toy break during a party last week. Thankfully no one was injured, but it's still scary.

Glass is still pretty though.

Glass is cooler and you need to remember to warm it up before use. Wood feels more natural and warm.
However, I'd always go for the glass as it's easier to clean and I wouldn't always have to think about germs and bacteria growing on my toy (I prefer usage without a condom).

I have over 10 glass toys and love them all for their firmness, weight and ease of cleaning/sterilizing. I haven't tried wood but I doubt I ever will, it just doesn't appeal to me like glass does. I'm not entirely sure why but maybe it has something to do with how beautiful glass looks.

I have a ton of glass toys that I like very much, and have yet to try wood. I keep planning to buy one from Nob Essence, but the timing's never been right.
