Classy Crop with Glass Insertable Handle? Count Me In!

The Fashionistas Glass Crop with Insertable Handle made by the Icon Brands company made a beautiful and sexy crop. It literally screams sex when you look at it and makes you instantly turned on. This crop is mainly for beginners who want some light BDSM play that are also just getting into all this pain/pleasure play. It doesn't give a good sting for more moderate to advanced users. Although this crop is wickedly gorgeous, it didn't live up to my exceptions.

Use



Fashionistas Glass Crop with insertable handle could be designed better. I'm not telling you that this product isn't "all that", but it didn't reach my expectations unfortunately. It does get the job done, I just wish it got the job done better.

This crop was actually made by the Icon Brands Company. I'm not too familiar with their other products but they didn't completely fail.

I don't want to offset anyone from buying this beautiful crop, which it is beautiful.. but, it doesn't give much of that "pain/pleasure" kind of play that I am used to. It would actually be GREAT for a beginner who is just getting into some BDSM pain/pleasure play but definitely not for moderate to advanced users. The more experienced user will be bored.

It may be attractive to the eye for you as it was for me. I wanted to love this crop so incredibly much, it just didn't happen unfortunately. I really thought a "insertable handle" type of crop that is made of glass would be pretty awesome and it is very sexy if you think of it that way, just the actual crop itself overall has much to be desired.

If I could have my way and made this product better, I would make it longer and have more of a "snap" somehow when it snapped you in the butt. It leaves a nice sting but not what I am used to. I guess I just like the more intense pain/pleasure play. Beginners will love this though. This crop is for VERY light play.

Can be used on boobs, ass, thighs, back, and anywhere in between :)

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features




My opinion of the shape is that it could be a little longer. Small crops just.. aren't the best when it comes to heavy/extreme play with me. Don't get me wrong, this crop wasn't "all that and a bag of chips" for me but it definitely could be for you. Especially for beginners, you will love this crop. It is a GREAT way to get into pain/pleasure play in a really slow and simple way.

This crop is also Food-grade material / Hypo-allergenic / Latex free / Non-porous / Phthalates free.

The design is really sexy in my opinion. The handle feels so smooth and beautiful in my hand. It is made of glass and has pictures of sexy fairies all over it. I really do love how it feels and how I can hold it so easily in my hand. It feels cool to the touch which is a different sensation from most crops but it makes me feel turned on almost from that alone. I wanted to love this crop so much. I will definitely be trying to experiment with this crop more and see if I can make it work correctly.

I think this crop is well made but could be better. It will definitely last a long time but do be careful with it because the handle IS made of glass and glass can break easily. You need to really care for this crop and not just throw it in the closet. Be gentle with it is my only suggestion.

The material is actually made of Leather and Tempered Glass. Let me explain both to you a little bit..

Leather has natural fibers (Patent leather is leather that has been given a high gloss finish.) Leather is a water resistant material with a high tensile strength and high resistance to tear. Usually used for harnesses and restraints it has high resistance to flexing and to puncture. Good heat insulator. Leather also has a very nice safety rating of seven.

Tempered Glass is a glass that is inorganic non metallic material that does not have a crystalline structure. Such materials are said to be amorphous and are virtually solid liquids cooled at such a rate that crystals have not been able to form. Pyrex, a brand name for borosilicate glass, is made by adding boron into the mixture of sand, soda and ground lime. Pyrex is a hard material with a high chemical resistance and mechanical strength. The boron in Pyrex reduces any stress caused to the material due to temperature changes. It is less dense than ordinary glass, making it much more resistant to shattering and breaking as well, if it were to break it would not shatter or splinter into tiny pieces but instead it would snap or break in large pieces. It retains temperature extremely well and requires only a little lube for a super-slippery effect. Tempered glass has an incredible safety rating of ten.

The feel of the actual crop makes me turned on. I wish it did more than that though. It feels smooth in your hand with the beautiful handle and the crop part has an interesting texture to it. It feels almost rubbery and weaved together. I'm pretty sure that part is made from some type of rubber plus something else material woven together to "try" and give a good sting. The top part of the crop (where it is suppose to be slapped hard and give some sting) is super flimsy. I would rather it be thicker honestly. It has a "F" engraved into the leather part and is an "open" crop that is suppose to slap double time.. but doesn't.

The insertable handle is made of tempered glass which makes this product go up a few points in my book. You don't even need to lube it up to insert it. I'm not sure why you would want to insert a crop into your vaginal area (avoid inserting the crop into the anal area because it does slender down and you don't want it going too far up your beautiful ass, plus, it looks like it may detach from the crop for some reason..)

When you do wave it around in the air, it makes a very sexual kind of wisp noise. I love the sound of that. When you are bent over a the bed with your ass in the air and you hear that little wisp coming at you, it gives me shivers all over my body. That is the part of this crop that is sexy but most crops actually have that feature if the "handler" of the crop knows what he/she is doing. It just doesn't sting like it should unfortunately. It is for very light bdsm play, which is perfectly fine. Beginners will LOVE this product.

The measurements of this product are :
18 and 1/2" inch long.
1 3/4" inch in width.
5 1/4" inch insertable with the handle.
And about 1 and 1/4th" in width with the handle.

Performance

This crop although very sexy so much that it turns me on, didn't meet my expectations unfortunately. It wasn't all that I thought it would be. I think I was so excited about it, I just hyped myself up on how it was going to be like.. and it didn't live up to my dreams.

Fashionistas Glass Crop didn't work exceptionally well for me. I really like some rough play and this just didn't cut it. It is definitely for beginners who are just getting into some pain/pleasure play and want some light BDSM play to just start off in this beautiful world of fetish. For more experienced users like I said before, you just won't be happy with it even though it is extremely enticing to the eye.. it won't make the cut for you.

I really wanted this crop to be all that and more, but it fell short unfortunately. Don't be discouraged though, it may work excellently for you.
    • Good for teasing

Care and Maintenance

It is extremely easy to clean this beautiful crop.

With Leather, Dirt adhering to the leather can be removed with a damp cloth, using a mild soap if needed.
With Tempered Glass, it is extremely smooth and nonporous. Easy to clean, with soap/water or sex toy cleaner. Use condoms if sharing.

I personally just spray down the crop before and after use with some of my favorite antibacterial toy cleaner and I'm set to go. It is really easy to clean.

I store this crop in my closet standing up all by itself so it doesn't get ruined. I do like to keep my toys in great shape and don't want them to become damaged. You can hang this crop up if you'd like as well.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging




The packaging is EXTREMELY enticing and just screams sex. I really love the box it came in. It made me instantly wet with I looked at it. There were no instructions included in this crop package, but it is really self-explanatory.

The front of the box is in a little polka dot design that is sleek and stylish to the eye. It says all kinds of things around the box which I will be sharing with you later. You can see the crop clearly through the box because it has a clear see-through slot that lets you look at the merchandise before opening it. The back of the box is really informative actually and shows the other products that this company has made. I really actually want to try those little cotton ball bunny butt plugs :) So it is NOT a lost cause.




I really like how it says "A beautiful glass handle appropriate for penetration accents this wickedly chic leather-tipped riding crop. It's all part of the Fashionista approach to life and love...where pain meets pleasure, and orgasmic bliss is just a sting away". That made me SO turned on when I read that. Worded very nicely.
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative

Experience

My experience with this beautiful fairy sex crop with insertable glass handle is about 50/50 in my book. I like half of the product, but not the other half.

I really like that it just screams sex and you want to use it. To the eye, it is perfection in a crop. When you use it.. it is a totally different story. It doesn't give enough sting when hit with it. I had my boyfriend use this crop on me for the first time and we could barely make a good mark on my ass. We usually have no problems because I bruise and blemish with stinging pain easily.. we just couldn't make a decent mark. It stung, but it wasn't unbearable. It was enjoyable but for very light play. I think we will use this crop when we just want something sexually attractive in a play session that is light and not as extreme as we usually play. It is more for a sexy encounter with your partner than for pain/pleasure.
Follow-up commentary
Unfortunately, this crop broke. My Master hit me with it pretty hard and it snapped in half. I loved this crop while it lasted, but unfortunately, it is now in the trash. It was a very nice piece to my collection.
