A Magical DelightYou can't beat the affordability of glass and this dildo is a terrific way to experiment with texture using a safe, easy to clean, beautiful dildo. This can be used with either end, vaginally or anally (but see warning in the review) and even for body massage. The sensation of these graduated bumps is really fantastic and not at all overwhelming to me as I expected. Give it a try and introduce yourself to a new sensation!
Please do not worry about using glass if you never have. First of all, it's a 10 of 10 rating on the Eden Fantasys material safety scale which means it's completely safe and nonporous. It's therefore a breeze to clean and is fully sanitizable. So go ahead and share it, or use it between orifices, provided you clean it in between, of course. Secondly, this is not any old glass, it's borosilicate glass, the same type used for cookware, scientific glassware and windows because of its enhanced strength and resistance to breaking from changes in temperature. Lest you still have doubts about how sturdy it is, take a look at these videos member ToyTimeTim made: Glass Test #1 and Glass Test #2 If those video tests don't put your mind to rest, nothing will!
Vaginally, I was actually taken by surprise at how lovely the bumps felt from these bubbles! I had previously tried a glass dildo with many nubby bumps all over it (the rainbow heart ) and found it too harsh for my tastes ( here's my review ). However, this wand was absolutely delightful! I love the feeling of the bump-bump-bump on insertion, along with the increasing girth. It can also be inserted from either end, depending on the feeling you are after. And even though the wand is straight, I had no trouble targeting my G-spot. I also found the bumps felt wonderful on my G-spot because they are so rounded and therefore no harsh edges irritated me.
As if that weren't enough, glass is superb for temperature play! I enjoyed the Magic Scepter both cold and warm. At room temperature, glass already has a cool feeling when inserted, but you can increase that by running cold water over the wand, or letting it chill in the fridge, in a bowl, or zip-top baggie of ice water. As a matter of fact, you can bring the ice water bath into the bedroom with you and re-chill as often as you like. The same is true of a warm water bath, or use a heating pad. Just remember, always test the toy on your body (for example on your inner wrist) before touching it to your sensitive places! You might also be surprised that this wand can feel pretty wonderful just as an all over body massage device. I particularly liked the large end for working into knotted muscles in my shoulders and back. And of course, adding heat or cold for massage is nice as well.
Storage is relatively simple as it is not a lint magnet like other materials, nor does it need to be protected from surfaces. It comes with a red drawstring pouch that does not provide cushioning, though it does prevent dust and scratches to the surface. I have never had a glass toy break, even when dropped, however, you may want to use something to provide more cushioning for storage such as a thick sock or use bubble wrap around it and then place it inside the pouch. Because the drawstring can open easily, I recommend you tie a knot in it to keep the toy inside.
I still can't believe I enjoy the bumpy sensation as much as I do! I wish I had tried this style sooner and then I would not have been turned off texture by the Rainbow Heart which I could swear was damaging me - heck, I could not even insert it all the way, that's how painful it was to me!
The Magic Scepter, however is really easy on me and I am more open to trying some more textures now. I think because glass is so smooth and has no drag, I am able to enjoy textures better with it than I do with silicone or other materials. Even the coronal ridges on my VixSkin dildos are too much for me and feel like they're scraping me. I usually don't thrust my dildos for this reason. However, the smooth, rounded edges of the Magic Scepter are very comfortable and even thrusting feels good.
I never enjoyed that popping sensation many talk about from anal beads or a dildo with a big head on it. So I am surprised to like this toy so much and I think that may have to do with the lack of a suction being formed. Regardless, for the price, glass really is the perfect way to experiment with all variety of sizes and textures and I certainly will be looking for more to try! I hope some of you give them a try as well.
