Glass toy pricing

Swirled blue dildo review

What do you think the deal is with the WIDE pricing for glass toys?

They are all the same material obviously and some are fancier than others but sometimes two can look exactly the same and be a difference of $200.

I recently bought TWO glass toys for a total of $20 and that included shipping.

Hi Lauren,

Please don't post duplicate threads on the forums.

The deal with it is that they are made by different manufacturers, and the cost varies widely. Some are hand blown, others are not. Some even contain gold dust. If you look at the Properties tab, you will find that not all glass is alike or equal. That would be like saying every metal dildo or toy is the same - it's just not that simple.

Also, as some sex toy reviewers are unfortunately finding out, some toys are actually not 100% glass. Some companies fill their toys with water so that they remain "glassy" looking, but don't require as much material.

I only re-posted because I posted in the wrong area by accident. The other should be deleted.

I did not know there were different grades of glass. Thank you.

The better glass products are borsilicate (Pyrex) glass and hand blown, not molded. The longer it takes to make and temper a product, the higher the price.

That's what I thought.

HI, lucky for me all the glass toys I have purchased are made of BOROSILICATE (Pyrex). I did not even know that they could make a "glass" dildo with other materials involved, and label it as such, when it is not fully made of glass... That sounds like FALSE advertisement to me! I have a friend who is a glass blower/artist and makes all different types of glass art, I am going to ask him whats up with this...

Yes, I didn't spend much on my first glass toy, but when I get my next one I will definitely invest in a nicer one. You are definitely paying for quality, not only in material but also in design. the dildo I reviewed is an extremely simple design, and it's not too enthralling. Some of these toys are made with smooth and precise curves that really make it worth it. For those of you familiar with other hand-blown glass, you may know that pieces with more aesthetic details can cost a lot more than simple ones.

IDK to much the reason but I agree theres a huge difference. Sometimes you get what you pay for I guess.

I would be interested in this as well. I know that certain "prettier" types of glass are not considered 100% safe for smoking ummm, tobacco. So i would guess the same could apply to using those glass types internally.

That's unfortunate to hear that some companies fill w.water. Is there any way you can discover if a glass toy is all real?

As a glass blower, I can say it takes a lot of skill to work with Pyrex. The materials can get very expensive, let alone the cost of the torches and propane/oxygen. Then you have the kiln, tools, etc.

It's not easy.
