Twist and ShoutOverall I'd be inclined to recommend the Mister Twister. It's a really pretty piece, it has a lovely texture, and if you're looking for a modestly-sized toy for some good anal sensations then it definitely delivers. If you want the same texture, but with a more traditional dildo shape, then the Swirled Blue by Don Wands might be a good option.
-Nice storage pouch
-Good size for a beginner
The basic design of the Mister Twister is reminiscent of the Metal Worx Teazer, with its long conical body, slim neck, and spherical stopper on the end. The biggest difference is that the body of the Mister Twister is significantly longer, measuring 7" in total and with around 5 3/4" insertable.
The Mister Twister is hand-blown from borosilicate glass (pyrex), and this hand-crafted approach is somewhat evident in the lack of uniformity in the design. I think that the body of mine looks rather like a carrot, or some other root vegetable, just by the way it angles slightly to one side and the surface ebbs in and out. The toy definitely isn't symmetrical and you can be certain that no two will ever be identical, giving you a unique piece.
The glass is actually primarily clear, but with stripes of blue pigment embedded into the surface, and these swirl all the way around the body of the toy giving it a beautiful appearance which really catches the light. For about the first 3/4 of the body the stripes are actually raised, giving a subtle ridged texture which corkscrews down the length, but by the time they reach down to the tip the surface has become completely smooth.
The quality of the construction is of a high standard, and there are no scratches or chips in the surface, nor any bubbles within the glass itself. Borosilicate glass is actually a very durable material, so it should be able to withstand a reasonable amount of abuse without becoming damaged, and there's absolutely no need to worry about it breaking during use.
Glass is a wonderful material for those who enjoy firmer and more rigid toys, as just by the very nature of it it can apply pressure substantially to wherever you want it. Glass is also a great material for temperature play as it holds both heat and coldness well, whether you want to warm it up in a basin of hot water, or cool it down in the freezer. The only material which really beats it for this is metal.
When it comes to using the Mister Twister it's a very easy toy to insert. At the rounded tip it starts off with a very modest circumference of only 3", and this gently tapers out to the widest point of 4 5/8" at the opposite end. With only a moderate amount of lubricant the tip will slip comfortably though even the tightest sphincter, feeling like nothing more than a slightly thick finger, and the smooth surface of the glass in this area aids the process. As you continue to steadily insert the plug the shape of it expands the sphincter at quite a slow rate, so if you're not too familiar with anal play it'll definitely ease you into the process, and not come as a sudden shock to the system. The spiral texture of the plug starts to become apparent the further you get down the shaft, and is quite a welcome addition. The texture is quite subtle, with the ridges being rather narrow, shallow, and packed closely together, so they provide a pleasant stimulation to the anus without being too intense. Their inclusion definitely adds an extra dimension to the plug and makes it a little more interesting; it's enough that it shouldn't scare off a beginner, but will still be satisfying to a more seasoned anal-player and lover of texture.
Probably my favourite way to use the Mister Twister is for thrusting, as then you get to take advantage of the texture which feels wonderful as the muscle of the sphincter ripples back and forth across it. The only downside here is actually the shape, as I feel that the texture would be more enjoyable on a completely straight shaft rather than a tapered one. Something gets a little lost along the way as the muscle is constantly expanding and contracting, rather than staying stationary as it glides over the ridges, but this can be improved on by clenching the sphincter as you thrust. The other great thing to do is just to rotate plug whilst the muscle is sitting along the shaft, but this can be tricky to do if there's lube on your fingers as the smooth glass ball isn't easy to get a grip on. Either way, as long as the Mister Twister is moving you get the enjoyment of that texture.
The packaging for the Mister Twister is incredibly simplistic and minimal. It just comes wrapped in a small piece of bubble wrap, which is sufficient to protect it in transit, and this turn is slipped inside a red velvet pouch. There's no branding anywhere, nor an enclosed information pamphlet, but personally I quite like this approach as it means less packaging to throw away or clutter up your cupboards. The velvet pouch is of a straight forward drawstring design and makes a nice place store your toy when not in use, so I appreciate its inclusion.
