Slip it in, let the fun begin

Overall, the Glide is a good prostate massager. While it may have a shortcoming in the design of the perineum stimulator that impacts hand-free operation, it does perform admirably in hands-on use. At about 1” in diameter, the Glide is suitable for beginners, but I still found it quite enjoyable. Though it doesn’t provide the “full-feeling” I enjoy with some of my toys, the Glide is easy to slip in and with the right technique, provides substantial prostate stimulation.

extremely useful review
The Nexus Glide is an entrant to the category of prostate-specific anal toys. Particularly, the Glide is in the sub-category of hard-plastic, hands-free prostate massagers, in the spirit of the Aneros. As with other Nexus toys in the sub-category, the Glide opts for a steel ball-bearing roller to provide additional stimulation to the perineum.

The Glide has three brothers in the Nexus family that are of similar design. The Neo, Excel, and Titus all feature similar materials (hard plastic) and base design (perineum roller ball and ergonomic handle). Of the four siblings, the Glide is the slimmest of the bunch with a diameter of 1” at its widest point. Also notable in the comparison is that compared to quite-similar Neo, the Glide has a more aggressive angle towards the prostate, and the arm of the base containing the roller ball is significantly shorter.

Close-up
The Glide is made of medical-grade polypropylene plastic. Polypropylene is a phthalate-free plastic that it is chemically resistant and mechanically strong. Incidentally, polypropylene is also what many food container manufacturers have switched to as a BPA-free alternative to polycarbonate. Due to the polypropylene construction, the Glide is body safe, durable, and should maintain its color well (important since I ordered the brilliant orange color option). Also due to its material, the Glide feels pleasantly heavy for its size, and is perfectly rigid; the thinnest part of the handle takes considerable force to flex just slightly.

The Glide has a matte finish that gives it just a big of drag to the touch when dry, but the finish holds lube well and gets quite slick. A close visual inspection reveals a slight seam that runs in the plane of the handle, along the front and the back of the shaft/head. The seam is hardly noticeable to the touch, and I couldn’t feel it at all during use. While I would prefer that there be no seams at all, I do have to commend Nexus demonstrating good attention to detail. A very close look (with magnification) shows that on the head, the seam was smoothed down; Nexus had the design foresight to avoid having a rough seam where it would be uncomfortable.

Practical considerations
The Nexus Glide meets all of my stringent requirements to be considered a safe anal toy. The polypropylene plastic construction means that the Glide is non-porous and capable of being sterilized. I generally clean it with anti-bacterial soap and hot water, but you can completely sterilize the Glide by wiping with 70% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). The steel ball is easily removed with the included tool, allowing you to completely clean the socket. The medical grade plastic is body-safe, polypropylene does not contain phthalates or bis-phenol A (BPA). Additionally, the base of the Glide is secure; being stiff and substantial, there is no concern about losing the toy inside of you. I also appreciate that because the Glide is plastic, it is compatible with all lubes, including water-based, oil, and silicone. Just keep in mind that some lube will remain with you after playing, so plan accordingly for play following the Glide. For example, you should avoid oil-based lube if you plan to use latex afterward.

Packaging
The packaging of the Nexus Glide is simple and effective. The toy is comes in a tall ovular plastic tube with paperboard insert that describes the product and includes thorough instruction for use. The packaging is tasteful in that it has no pictures of models or descriptions that would read as pornographic. However, the packaging isn’t exactly discreet either. Certainly the words on the front of the package “Male g-spot massager” and “stronger, longer and more powerful orgasms” would suggest to most the purpose of the object inside. The packaging feels durable and could be used to store the Glide, but I don’t see any reason to, as the toy will not react with other materials and will not lose its shape. Just store it out of direct sunlight to avoid damaging its color.

I mentioned that the instructions are thorough. Indeed there is a complete 4-step procedure for “maximum enjoyment” that includes recommendations for relaxing and focusing on the sensation you feel. The descriptive instructions would be great for those who are new to anal play, especially since instructions are noticeably missing from most toys. I appreciate the focus on taking things slowly, using plenty of lube, and experimenting to find the most pleasurable sensations.
Experience
I found the Glide to be a great fit, so to speak. The diameter of the toy is fairly small (less than two fingers) so it goes in easily without much fuss (aside from the quiet moan of pleasure). Once my ass is relaxed from a bit of fingering, I have no trouble inserting the Glide. It sort of just glides right in. Once it slips in, I can feel the Glide immediately lock on to my prostate and reward me with the excellent sensation of direct pressure on the spot. The aggressive angle of the shaft with regards to the base helps the Glide maintain contact with the prostate. Squeezing my PC muscles increases the pressure and is quite nice. Unfortunately, in this use the Glide doesn’t provide as much pressure or motion as I would expect, I suspect due to the design of the base.

Evaluated against the other Nexus prostate massagers in the comparison, the perineum stimulator of the Glide (the arm with the steel ball) is significantly shorter than its siblings. The most obvious consequence of this is that the perineum massager doesn’t quite reach my perineum. A less-expected consequence is that the Glide does not effectively pivot forward when you squeeze your PC muscles. Since the arm is shorter, it moves with the outer sphincter when you squeeze, instead remaining stationary and acting as a fulcrum for the massager. If the arm were a bit longer, the tip of the massager would pivot and provide pressure on the prostate as the anal muscles contract.

The only other shortcoming of the design is that the rings at the base of the shaft don’t do anything. Since the roller ball is so close to the shaft, I was unable to comfortably insert the toy enough to feel the rings. During use, I found that when the Glide was (locked) in place, my topmost ring was just touching anal opening. However, there may be some benefit to the rings, as they seem to collect lube that might otherwise drip down onto the handle.

Despite the difficulties with hands-free use caused by the length of the perineum stimulator, the Glide is redeemed when used hands-on. The ergonomic handle allows for precise manipulation. I found that pulling back on the handle effectively pivoted the shaft against my prostate and provided great stimulation. Even better was use with a partner. Using the handle, my partner was able to work my prostate with ease, and without getting lube all over her hands. This usage was her favorite, due to the ease with which she could simultaneously play with my cock.

Though hand-on play was the most intense, I still was pleased hands-free use during intercourse. While it didn’t provide all of the sensation of hands-on manipulation, it did significantly boost pleasure (as much as a much larger plug does). While on my back (with partner on top) the Glide stayed in place perfectly up until orgasm, at which point it popped out; however, this is understandable given that it’s a relatively small-diameter toy, lacking a large bulge to hold it in place. Focusing slightly more on squeezing my buttcheeks would have probably held it in. When I used it while standing up, the Glide stayed put for the whole ride.
