have you ever purchased a toy just for aesthetics and looks even though you know the shape, size or material isn't ideal. I'm considering glass toys bc they are so beautiful but I'm almost positive I wont use or enjoy such a hard toy
I mostly buy for function but I have at times really wanted something for the look of it - like the Jellyfish. But they do get used too. But if the Jellyfish hadn't been unusual, then I wouldn't have bothered - especially at that price.
Oppps - I did buy one that was more for looks - the Gold Laced G.
It's pretty and it was a bargin for $12.
I do have one piece that I bought because it was on a major clearance sale on EF and wasn't sure if I'd really like it. But otherwise, I buy for functionality because being physically satisfied trumps aesthetics for me.
I buy primarily for function but I want toys that look sexy as well. I do have some toys that have great visual appeal to me, that I enjoy more so than their function.
Some glass dils are in this class for me....
I bought the Tentacle to display with my desktop collection of marine biology inspired non-adult toys, and I've taken chances on a few glass toys just because they were pretty.
If you've never used glass before, it might really surprise you. I say, go for it regardless, you might end up loving it. It's hard, but slick, so it might feel better than a toy of softer materials that's unexpectedly too hard for you.
I've never really brought a toy just because I thought it was aesthetically pleasing as I want a toy that works for me or at least I hope it will.
I do have a large collection of glass toys though and as others have said don't knock it till you've tried it -)) I also have them on display in the bedroom because they are too darn pretty to have locked up in a toy box.
If I could get them cheap or free, I'd get some of the alien or zombie dildos mentioned in other threads. I have no intention of actually using them. I also want the Hello Kitty vibrator just for laughs.
knowing me I'll probably end up breaking glass during cleaning or something
I pad the sink with a washcloth just in case one slips and knocks against the bottom of the sink, but it takes a pretty substantial fall to break Pyrex glass. I've dropped Pyrex baking pans on pavement and had them survive, so while it is technically breakable, it's not exactly fragile.
The glass that the dildos are made of tends to be high quality. I've dropped one of my glass toys on the tile floor and it didn't break. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Wow - that's pretty hardy and great! Could be devastating to have a fav toy smash.
I tend to be rough (I don't throw my toys around but I'm not extremely gentle) - most of my toys aren't glass and I often handle the glass the same way as I do with other materials.
My glass are all good - no chips or anything which I'm surprised at...hehe
I generally purchase toys that are pretty, but functional. One of my friends collects glass dildos, and has them in a display case in her bedroom. She's never even tried to use one, for her it is just a piece of art.
Great design and aesthetic appeal is something that I appreciate in all areas of my life so yes, if it doesn't cost the earth and it's something that I will get as much enjoyment from by just looking at it I will certainly buy for looks alone.
