This Girl's Best Friend is Gold

I put glass on the pros and cons both for the fact that not everyone is a fan of glass toys. I myself would rather have something with a softer material but with that being said, I feel as if this toy could be used by anyone looking to explore.

Use



The Gold Laced G is manufactured by SSA Glass and is a great size for vaginal or anal use. I always recommend to use a condom on your toys during the sharing process. This glass dildo is great for g-spot and p-spot stimulation, so go ahead boys and girls and see what having a gold laced dildo feels like. I would say that this dildo is great for beginners to advanced users, although more advanced users may be looking for something more girthy. I myself find this to be my best glass toy for hitting and keeping stimulation on my g-spot.

This is an all-purpose dildo great for solo, foreplay and to incorporate during sex. Also, use care with using a glass or metal toy as it could cause problems if thrusting too hard or deep. You could have a bruised cervix, or worse, you could penetrate the cervix and cause great damage and pain to yourself. I feel as if this would be a great toy for women that have a short vaginal canal or a tilted/tipped uterus because the curve isn't too severe and neither are length and girth. I would love to hear feedback if anyone has used this with any of these problems.

Temperature play is a huge plus with this toy. Put this toy in some hot/cold water for about 5 to 10 minutes and go for it. This toy also warms during use. About 10 to 15 minutes during play you will notice the glass become the same temperature as your body.

Material / Texture

The following three paragraphs are taken from Wikipedia (cited at the end of the review):

"Borosilicate glass is a type of glass with the main glass-forming constituents silica and boron oxide. Borosilicate glasses are known for having very low coefficients of thermal expansion (~3 × 10-6 /°C at 20°C), making them resistant to thermal shock, more so than any other common glass. Such glass is less subject to thermal stress and is commonly used for the construction of reagent bottles. Borosilicate glass is sold under such trade names as Kimax, Pyrex, Endural, Schott, or Refmex.

"Borosilicate glass is created by adding boric oxide[4] to the traditional glassmaker's frit of silicate sand, soda, and ground lime. Since borosilicate glass melts at a higher temperature than ordinary silicate glass, some new techniques were required for industrial production. Borrowing from the welding trade, burners combining oxygen with natural gas were required.

"While more resistant to thermal shock than other types of glass, borosilicate glass can still crack or shatter when subjected to rapid or uneven temperature variations. When broken, borosilicate glass tends to crack into large pieces rather than shattering (it will snap rather than splinter)."

Borosilicate Glass rates a 10 on Eden's material safety scale. All lubricants can be used with borosilicate glass; however, oil based lubricants are very dangerous.

The following information was taken from Woman's Day (cited at the end of the review). I also recommend checking this website out if you are new to lubricants:

"Oil-based lubricants can provide good lubrication with a less “slick” feel, say experts. “Some doctors even recommend olive oil as an option,” says Dr. Herbenick. “But be careful about these oil-based products. They can cause latex condoms to tear. However, they are safe to use with polyurethane condoms.” And most experts conclude that oil-based lubricants are typically best for male use and not ideal for the vagina."

This toy does not have an odor. It is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex free, phthalates free and waterproof. So, water play is a plus with this golden delight. This dildo is only in available in one color: clear with golden yellow lace wrapping around the whole toy. The material is smooth but I find that it does stick to the skin during use, so I would recommend using lubrication. This toy doesn't have a taste unless you use a flavored lube like WET's line of flavored lubes. This toy looks realistic but internally I think it doesn't feel realistic.

Texture-wise, this toy's criss-crossing raised lace cannot be felt to me when using it vaginally but anally is another story; it really adds to the stimulation. This toy is glass and glass is very firm. It does not have any give to it, meaning it is not flexible and it is not sticky unless you use a sticky lube. This toy could be harness compatible if you own a harness that is small enough to hold it.

    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

This dildo is realistic. Like a penis, it has the urethral opening(pee hole) dip within the head. It also has the definition between the head and shaft (that being two roll-like things separating the two). The length of this toy is 6 3/4". More than halfway up the shaft, the curve starts to appear. Only 6" of this toy is insertable, which means that the base of this toy is 3/4" long. I find the base to be really well designed for this toy. It is not overly large and works great as a handle or to stand the toy upright. Circumference of this toy is 3 1/2" and it has a 1" diameter.

This toy is lightweight (9.7 oz) making it great to use in any position. There is the dip in the head of the dildo, so that could be a problem if using anally and you have not cleaned yourself; germs/dirt could hide there. I personally love the design of this toy. It's great for concentrating on the g-spot/p-spot and a really great size and shape for beginners to anal looking to size up. I feel this toy wouldn't be great for the average user of toys. Most are looking for something more. This is a rather plain start for those new to toys. If you are looking for something discreet, this is not the toy for you. Although its design and laced golden texture is stunningly artistic in appearance, I would not display this. People would know what they are looking at. Also, I would not say this is suitable for travel, as glass toys are delicate and could get damaged during travel. So, leave this one at home.

Performance

I myself am not a fan of glass toys. To me, they are too firm. However, this one works like a dream. It's small enough to get the job done and works great anally. With me being new to anal play, I didn't know what to expect from this toy. With just a little dab of silicone-based lube and a minute long rub, you are ready to go with this toy anally. I have found lube goes a bit farther with glass toys when exploring anally, which is great when you have to budget lube into your monthly bills.

This dildo is not battery operated, so no worry about buying them or picking up the wrong size. No buttons to worry about pushing accidentally and you don't have to worry about shorting out your toy. This is a real big plus to me. Batteries are not cheap. You are the controller of this toy; you control the speed and depth. If only everything was this easy, right? This toy is comfortable to use even by someone that is new to toys like this but I remember I didn't like my first time with a glass toy. You should experiment with this. If you are new to glass toys, I recommend dunking it in to some warm water before use.

This toy doesn't have a suction cup, just a flat laying base. You could use it to stand this toy up for display or storage and as a handle for use. It could be harness compatible if you own one that is small enough to house this toy.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance is simple for this toy. Wash with soap and warm water or your favorite toy cleaner, followed by wiping or patting dry. You can also follow up with any sanitizer. It is also bleachable, so doing a 10% bleach solution could be beneficial. Just remember to rise well after bleaching. You can also place this toy on the top rack of you dishwasher. This toy comes with a carrying bag that can be used for storage but it lacks any padding. This dildo is works with every lube.

    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This toy arrived wrapped in bubble wrap and inside the red baggy provided for storing the toy. There was no information at all but this toy is 100% self-explanatory to say the least. I would give this toy as a gift within the storage baggy provided. It is somewhat discreet.
    • Good for storage

Experience

I ordered this toy when Eden was doing the Facebook friends sale. I purchased it at only $9 and I would have to say, it is clearly worth a lot more than $9.
