A Tulip for Your Butt!

This toy is so filling, and is definitely one of the best plugs that I have tried on Eden. It is simple, no frills, and body-friendly. The purple, iridescent glass is very subtle and beautiful; it is not as bright as it looks in the product picture. This is the most used toy of any of the toys in my collection.

Use

This plug is designed for anal use, but can also be used vaginally. The base on the Royal Ripple makes it very secure for anal use. I think that this toy may be pleasurable vaginally and be able to hit your g-spot, but if you are buying this for vaginal pleasure, then I would suggest getting a glass dildo with no texture instead.

This plug would be suggested for anyone who has tried a plug before or knows that they can take a larger size. Even though a beginner would be able to use this toy with some time to warm up, for some bodies it might be long enough to hit your second sphincter (I am a very small person). Relaxing your second sphincter is difficult for many people, so warm up will be required.

Material / Texture

Depending on the lighting of the room, the color of this plug turns from a dark purple to a clear, colorless glass. This plug looks clear in my room lighting. In the kitchen, strangely enough, it looks blue.



The Royal Ripple is made of borosilicate glass. Glass rates a 10 on Eden's Safety Scale and can be used with any type of lube. It is smooth and non-porous, thus will require very little lube for it to glide in your body. Glass does not "drag" like a silicone plug would. Also, this glass plug is not flexible like a silicone or rubber plug, causing it to be a little more challenging for beginners.

For those of you that may have a fear of glass "breaking" inside of you, I can assure you that this will not shatter from impact. I have already dropped this toy once or twice from a short distance, and I have not seen any break lines or chips in this plug. This plug is completely solid, not hollow like many glass decorations that you may have around the house. This is made out of the same exact glass that your kitchen Pyrexware is made out of, which you can put in the oven and is difficult to break from impact.

The glass warms up to you internal body temperature, making it pleasurable for long term wear. Although the plug may not seem that large, it feels larger than it appears because of the unforgiving material. However, this plug will leave you feeling full and wanting more.

Design / Shape / Size

The Royal Ripple is a beautifully shaped glass plug which has an hour-glass shaped, flat base with a tapered neck that leads up to a gentle, pleasurable head. The glass is a translucent shade of purple, not a deep shade like in the picture.

I found that the design of this plug was very pleasurable. Not only is the Royal Ripple beautiful to look at, but it fits my body perfectly. The base fits between my cheeks and stays put for long term wear. At first, I wished for a narrower neck, because I was not used to the way that it was stretching me while I was wearing it. However, I began to realize that the stretching from the thicker neck makes it more pleasurable. I also do not have to worry about this toy falling out during sex, which was one of my initial worries.

The only problem I would have with this toy is the shape of the base. It gets in the way of vaginal entry, which is a common complaint for plugs with larger bases. However, I almost would not change it because the size of the base eases all fears that it might slip in.

The neck is thick compared to other plugs that I have used anally. However, the neck size is very pleasurable, and adds to the stimulation. The neck tapers down towards the base of the toy, an area where the plug fits comfortably with my body. This toy requires not only my first, but my second sphincter to relax. This can require more warm up time than other toys because of its size and length. The size of this toy may be a little large for beginners, and is one of the larger plugs that is available for purchase on Eden. That is not saying much, because Eden tends to carry smaller plugs. This smooth, unrealistic toy is easily traveled with, even though it is a little larger. When the plug is traveled with in its velvet bag, it can easily be passed off as a souvenir of some sort.

Performance

The size of this toy was perfect for my butt. At times I wish that the head was not as long, so that it wouldn't hit my second sphincter when I first insert it. I have never had a toy that has made me feel as full like this toy does. If I buy another plug, it is most likely to be glass, because I really enjoy the way that it glides into my body comfortably and fills me up.

This toy may be a little too large for beginners. I'd suggest a more forgiving silicone toy, like the Pacifier Advanced, or a smaller glass plug, to those who are new to anal play. However, if you are an intermediate user ready to move into the world of larger plugs, this plug can become your pal.

This toy can be used with a harness, but because of the unforgiving nature of glass, I would not suggest thrusting with this toy.

Care and Maintenance

Glass is one of the easiest materials to take care of when it comes to sex toys. With glass, you can wipe it off after use, stick it in a safe place in the dishwasher, or boil it. Basically, you can sanitize it in any way that you would a silicone or metal toy. Any kind of lube can be used. Because of how smooth the Royal Ripple is, you will not find yourself having to use much lube at all. For glass toys, I prefer water-based lube because it allows the toys to glide without too much cleanup and "gunk" on your toys afterwards. Of course, that also depends on the kind of lube that you use.

This toy can be stored in the velvet pouch that it comes in. I would include pictures, but it looks like my girlfriend has either misplaced or repurposed it without me knowing. However, it's a simple, red velvet bag with a drawstring that you can use to tie it shut. It's very sensual and soft.

Packaging

This toy came to me in a simple bag, with nothing but the velvet pouch that it came with. There were no instructions included. Even though it did not come with any packaging, the velvet pouch is very beautiful and could be used to gift the toy. Some ideas would be to put it in a small, red box that matches the velvet or a small gift bag with lots of tissue paper.

Experience

I had the package sent to my girlfriend's house, and did not know when it had arrived. After a little bit of naughty cuddling, she pulled it out, and I was intimidated by its size and the fact that it was made out of glass. However, with some gentle assurance, she put some lube on it and slowly inserted it. I had no idea how glass would feel, since this was my first glass toy. However, once it was all of the way in, I moaned with ecstasy. I didn't even need to go further; we cuddled sensually and I enjoyed the feeling of fullness.

This is a staple in our toy box now. We use it just about every time that anal play comes into the picture.
Follow-up commentary
This is simply the best butt-plug I have ever owned. In fact, it's the most used toy in our toybox. The weight is perfect, the shape is pleasing, and the base doesn't get in the way. The color is also beautiful. The price is also reasonable, and it seems to go on sale quite often.
