Not at all. I love glass! It's non-porous, easy to clean, and it can be sterilized. Plus it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals.

You do have to use a little bit of care when thrusting, because it's a rigid toy, and if you're too overenthusiastic you could manage to bruise your cervix. If you're playing alone, that's pretty unlikely, because you'll be able to feel what you're doing, though, so it's more of a concern with partners.

If you're concerned about glass breaking, remember that it's pyrex glass. If you drop it on a hard enough surface, it will break into chunks, not shards, if it breaks at all. It's nearly impossible to break while in use -- it's a solid piece of glass.

You should always inspect glass toys before use, just to make sure it doesn't have a chip or a stress fracture, just in case, but if you store them with a reasonable amount of care, it's pretty unlikely that they'll get damaged.

Glass sounds awesome! I am looking into it myself. The fear of it breaking has been a deterrent in the past, but I want to thank ToyGeek for all this wonderful information.

I don't see how you could break the toy, which was my biggest concern before I learned better. Unless you have some wicked muscle strength down there or change too quickly from hot to cold, you should be fine.

It doesn't concern me, I am looking forward to my first glass purchase.

I agree with Toy Geek 100%.

Breaking a piece of glass would be like breaking a Pyrex baking dish with your bare hands (or genitals). Pretty much impossible.

Its incredibly safe - just be sure you check it frequently and don't store it where it will bang around against hard things.

*thumbs up* I couldn't have said it better myself.

You shouldn't be afraid of glass. At first I thought it seemed really strange and scary too, I wondered why anyone would want to stick glass in themselves. After experiencing glass I can tell you it is not scary at all and absolutely pleasurable.

We have 10 or so glass toys, some of which we have been using for 5+ years. The sensations are phenomenal and there are no safety issues during use.

Seconded with real-life experience. I've dropped my glass toy on the tiled floor with no bad things happening. There's no way my vagina could break it. Like...ever.

They are rigid for thrusting, but that can be a pro as well as a con.

It doesn't concern me as far as breaking, no. I have a glass wand. Honestly? I'm just not that fond of it. It's heavy and understandably, there is zero flexibility. The best use we've found so far is anal. Even that can be tricky as there is no handle and it gets slippery quick! I wasn't impressed enough to $$pend more for one with a handle.

Glass is one of my favorite materials. I was a little worried when I first tried it, but then I realized that it is *extremely* hard--there's no way even the most gargantuan PC muscles could crack it. It won't hurt you unless you try to beat yourself with it!

It once did, but not even then did it frighten me. I've always been open minded to all materials, even the bad ones (they serve their purpose, if used for one person alone).

I have been scared also, but after reading these comments I'm starting to consider trying it

If they're properly made with tempered glass (ideally borosilicate) then there won't be a problem with them spontaneously breaking. I do inspect mine before each use, and try to keep them from being shocked/scratched, but glass is very durable and safe. If you're concerned then freeze the toy and drop it into boiling water. If it's going to crack that should set it off (but not weaken it).

I would say definitely not. I have several, and LOVE them!

I'm curious to know why you're concerned?
Because it's, well GLASS, and glass is generally considered fragile? No worries, all the toys I've seen made of glass, is made from the same type of glass that your Pyrex cook/bakeware is made from, so it's very sturdy, strong, and able to withstand many various temps, and pressure.

Are you concerned with the colors? Most (but not all) toys, like this Violet Wonder, are colored thru out the glass, so it's not painted on, so it won't leak, or bleed anywhere. Some do have paint on the outside, which has had some debate to it. But generally, and in my experience, all that stands up rather well.

And, yes, you CAN boil them, use a 50/50 bleach/water solution on them, and/or put them in the dishwasher to wash. You can also freeze them for that added sensation/pleasure.

I wouldn't really do the freezing then dropping it into boiling water, most glass will fracture, crack, or break when put in those kinds of extremes. It's never recommended, not only for the safety of the toy, but also for personal safety as well.

That was my fear a few months ago.
Using a glass dildo and it snaps in my snatch, LOL.

It is by far my favorite material. It sounds scary, but pyrex is wonderful and it would take some type of ungodly snatch to break it!

The thought of using a glass toy used to frighten me before I tried them, but I have since fallen in love with them and now realize how impossible it would be to break the toy during use. They are silky smooth and a delight to the touch, as well as to the eye.

They are also quite durable and SUCH a pleasure to use! I highly recommend them for solo play for the reasons Toy Geek described until you become accustomed to them. If you allow a partner to use them on you once you are comfortable with them, first make certain that s/he is the type of person to listen carefully to you and adjust his/her actions according to your directions. You are not likely at all to injure yourself while using a glass toy because you automatically adjust your movements to your body's reactions, but your partner doesn't know the impact a toy has on you unless you tell him/her.

I very highly recommend that everyone at least give glass toys a try. They offer sensations you just can't get with any other toy. There are many beautiful, yet very affordable, glass toys available, so you are not out much just to check them out. Worst case scenario: you have a beautiful piece of art!

I've never had any trouble with glass toys. Just like any other toy, it just needs the proper care.

The only thing that concerns me is me being a klutz and breaking the damn thing. It would be just my luck to spend $100 and break it before I even got a chance to use it.

The inexpensive ones are fine for starters. Go ahead and get one, and, as soon as you hold it, you'll realize it won't break. I can't keep a glass to drink out of in my house without breaking it, but I have no fear or problem with these toys.

I have no glass-shattering fears and they're normally SO PRETTY, but I can't stand glass toys. They're way too rigid for me to enjoy (and a lot are super girthy, and obviously have no give). The only reason I would buy one now is for display purposes tbh.
