Use

The Moon Shine from SSA Glass is a mid-sized butt plug of unexpected prowess. The firm weight of glass creates a full feeling that will keep experienced users interested, while the tapered shape of the tip eases insertion for those newer to this kind of play.

This plug can be worn during masturbation or intercourse, and can be a fun addition to anyone's sexual escapades, male or female.

Care should be taken to insert such a solid object gently, lest you bruise tender areas. Never engage in anal play without adequate lubrication, and always remember that pain means stop. These rules apply to all plugs, not just the Moon Shine, but safety is always important, so it's worth repeating.

Material / Texture

Glass is an excellent material for sex toys. It's non-porous, odorless, free of phthalates and other chemicals, and easy to sterilize. All of this makes it among the safest choices. Glass also holds temperature well, so if you drop it in a glass of icewater for a few minutes before play, you'll create a thrilling chill. Or, if you prefer, you can warm it in a similar way.

The solid nature of glass demands careful use, but Pyrex glass will not shatter if broken. Should tragedy befall the Moon Shine, it will break into chunks, rather than dangerous shards. Always inspect glass toys for chips or cracks before playtime, but it'll take more force than your body is capable of exerting to fracture this glass.

Although it's not recommended, I have dropped glass toys before with no ill effect. By all means, avoid dropping them on hard surfaces, and keep them in padded storage, but there's no need to fear owning one, as it takes a fairly hard blow at just the right angle to bring about the tragic demise of one of these treasures.

Design / Shape / Size

The Moon Shine is significantly shorter, and only slightly wider (it's a tad over an inch and a half in diameter), than my other glass plug, but it feels much larger while inserted. The neck of the piece is fairly thick, at nearly an inch in diameter, plus glass is a rigid and fairly heavy material. Yet even as it feels large in use, the taper at the tip makes it surprisingly easy to insert.

Anyone from a relatively brave beginner up to a fairly advanced player should find this a useful toy.

It's more discreet than a phallic toy, provided your local snoops are not well versed in sex toys. While those familiar with butt plugs will recognize this as one, you might be able to pass it off as a paperweight, depending on the strength of your talents at deception. Perhaps you could even convince someone who knows better that you think it's a paperweight, if you'd prefer hopelessly naive over happily naughty.
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

Capable of quite a bit of stimulation on its own, the Moon Shine really shines when coupled with vaginal penetration. It helps steer the dildo or vibrator straight at the g-spot, with excellent result. Alternately, it's quite stimulating to wear while warming up for other anal play.

When chilled, it holds the colder temperature for several minutes before it grows hot from body heat, which makes it perfect for temperature play.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Glass is a very easy material to clean, since it's non-porous and also does not hold odors. After use, wash it in hot water with toy cleaner or mild soap, and take care not to drop it in the sink. You can also boil glass; run it through the dishwasher, sans soap; or clean it with a 10% bleach solution, for sterilization.

All lubricants are safe for glass toys.

Storing the Moon Shine is simple, thanks to the included black velvet pouch. Take care that it won't bang into other hard toys, or have anything heavy dropped on it.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Moon Shine arrived snuggled inside a black velvet pouch far too long for it, along with a bit of bubble wrap. The packaging is definitely nice enough for gift-giving within the type of relationship in which folks might be exchanging butt plugs, is appropriate for storage, and does not create waste.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
Follow-up commentary
I almost clicked the falling out of love icon, but there's really nothing wrong with this plug. It's attractive, safe, and effective. However, it falls short in comparison to my two favorites (the Njoy Pure Plug and the Jollies Luna), so it never sees any play.

The price is right, so those interested in giving a solid, girthy-necked plug a try really can't go wrong. Personally, I wouldn't use it for extended wear, as the neck is too thick for comfortable sitting, but it works well paired with a soft dildo for DP.
