Grey's Gorgeous Glass

While it can be a challenge to insert, this plug is my all time favorite for use alongside vaginal penetration. While I expected such a rigid material to be uncomfortable, it is very pleasant to wear for extended amounts of time and the base is comfortable to boot! If you can take the size and weight, I definitely recommend this plug - just keep in mind that "medium" is a relative term.

Use

Doc Johnson's Sasha Grey Signature Plug, size Medium, is a sizeable glass butt plug which can be used by people of any gender. It is designed to be inserted into the anus, though it could also be inserted into the vagina. Thanks to this plug's awesome material, it can also be used for temperature play, and it is suitable for sharing between partners.

This plug has a wide base to make it anal-safe, but it is definitely not suitable for beginners due to its shape, material, and size. It is pretty large ("medium" only refers to the fact that it is the second-largest in a line of three plugs), and glass is an unforgiving material, so make sure that you are used to taking plugs of this size (and, to be safe, slightly larger ones) before purchasing.

The Sasha Grey Signature plug's base is extremely comfortable, and is definitely appropriate for long-term wear - just remember to re-apply lubricant every few hours so that removal won't be painful! If you decide to use this toy vaginally, take caution not to thrust too roughly or you could cause internal bruising.

This plug is definitely waterproof, and because of its size it is pretty good for travel. It won't fit in a pocket, but it could be easily slipped into a purse and just requires a bit of padding. If you're in a rush, stuff it in a sock and go!

Material / Texture

This plug is made from tempered glass, an excellent material which rates a perfect ten on the EdenFantasys Toy Material Safety Scale. Because tempered glass is nonporous, it can be completely sterilized and is thus suitable for sharing between partners. This toy comes with no odor or taste, and should be completely smooth - if your toy arrives scratched, return it immediately, and always inspect your plug for damage before use, as even the smallest fracture could cause you serious damage.

The Sasha Grey Signature is not textured, but keep in mind the challenge of a completely rigid material, as it may not be suitable for those new to anal plugs.

Design / Shape / Size

The shape of this plug is interesting for such a rigid material; it has a very abrupt taper with a round, spherical body, short neck and circular base. Despite my misgivings I found the base to be very comfortable, and it has a good weight that you will continue to feel throughout use.

I would suggest this for those with above-average anal experience, and definitely not as a first toy! I find it almost impossible to insert without my partner's help (as it is ridiculously slippery when lubed) and a good amount of warm-up before hand. The diameter at it's widest point is comparable to many other "medium" anal toys, but something about this plug just sets it above the rest in terms of difficulty.

While the shape of the toy is not explicitly sexual, it is clear what its function is and is best kept out of site. It is small enough to stow away for travel, but take care to wrap it in a t-shirt or something similar so that it doesn't become scratched.

Measurements:
Base: 2" diameter
Widest point: 2.25" diameter
Length: 4"

Performance

After the trial of insertion upon my first use, I fell in love with this plug. It feels great, heavy and filling without being too much, and is amazing if worn during vaginal penetration! Its unique taper places its widest diameter at a point where my partner's penis is pushed up at my g-spot in addition to the usual extra-tight feeling I get from wearing plugs during sex.

My partner is also a huge fan of this toy, and has an easier time inserting it because he uses it so much. Out of our entire stash of plugs, this one has the best combo of weight/size/comfy base that makes it ideal for long-term wear.
    • Comfortable

Care and Maintenance

To clean this plug, you can boil it for three minutes, use toy cleaning fluid or wipes, or sterilize it with a 10% bleach solution. This plug has no texture at all, and thus is extremely easy to clean thoroughly and quickly. Glass is compatible with all lubricants, so pick your favorite and go to town!

I store mine in a clean tube sock stuffed inside a toy crate. It's pretty low maintenance, just make sure (as with all glass toys) that it is protected from scratches and possible breakage in the case that it is dropped.

Packaging

The packaging for this toy is really stylish! The outer layer of cardboard is black matte, with glossy accents. The back features product details as well as a short message about the toy.

The inner layer is a very sturdy foam core, with an indentation that holds the plug. This inner core is GREAT for storage, although I wish it had an actual lid rather than just a sheet of foam to cover its front.

Personal comments

I consider myself pretty experienced when it comes to anal play. However, before this plug I had never used a plug of this shape and it was a whole new experience. This is the only plug for which I have to "warm up" with smaller toys before use, even though I have used others of similar diameter with no problem. My guess is that the steep taper is just not long enough for me - it's really 'barely there', and it feels like I'm just trying to insert a sphere back there! Combined with the fact that any lube that gets on the base makes it very hard to grip, this makes for very difficult insertion, and I rarely use this one without my partner for that reason.

So why hasn't it been retired? Because it feels amazing once inserted! The shape of the toy is such that my partner's penis is forced to rub against my g-spot throughout intercourse. Add in the extra-tight feeling I always get from wearing plugs during sex and it's unbelievable!

Out of our entire stash, this plug has the best combo of size/weight/comfy base to make it hands-down the best choice for long-term wear. I never thought I'd choose a glass toy over a silicone one for this purpose, but its short length makes it waaaay more comfortable for extended periods of time.

Anyone who has read my Plug of Lust review knows that color can be a dealbreaker for me when it comes to anal toys. Usually I have to compromise when it comes to glass toys, as they tend to be at least partially clear/uncolored. Not the case with this one! Not only does black glass look freakin' cool, it also camouflages any unsightly smudges or marks that may show up during use.
