Use

The Reflections Amber dildo by Doc Johnson is a glass dildo used for vaginal penetration or outer vaginal stimulation. Due to it's temperature holding abilities, this dildo would be perfect for stimulation to the clitoris as well as inside along the vaginal walls due to it's wavy appearance. You can also use this dildo for stimulating around your labia, and since it's rigid enough, possibly even pinpoint stimulation. If you're going to try using this toy anally, remember that there is no flared base to prevent it from slipping all of the way in and becoming lost, so always exercise caution. Make sure to have a firm grip on the larger end, and remember to take things slow, as vigorous activity anally could also cause this toy to become lost.

Since this is a glass toy, this can be handy for temperature play. To change the temperature to your preference of hot or cold, simply soak it in an ice bath or warm water. Never heat your toy up in a microwave, or put it in the freezer, as these will result in extreme temperatures, and possibly even injury when trying to use the toy. Obviously, don't boil the toy for heating it up either, as this is another extreme temperature. Always exercise caution, and think before you do any of these things.

This dildo is best suited for more intermediate users in my opinion, due to it's size alone. Beginners may have a hard time with the diameter of this toy and some with the length. However, if you're a size queen this may not suit your tastes either, as this doesn't provide a full feeling like some toys offer. This toy is somewhere in the middle. Please remember though that this toy is rigid, and thus it has no give and can feel much bigger than something of the same size in silicone, or other pliable materials.

The Reflections Amber can be used in bed, in the bathtub or shower, or in a pool, as it's made of glass. Just remember that this toy gets slippery when wet, and dropping it could lead to it breaking. Also note that since this toy is rigid, and has zero amount of give, it can bruise your cervix if you're on the 'eager' side with your thrusts. If you're going to travel with this, be sure you have a padded pouch or to wrap it up in a towel or something padded, as it can break in transit.

If you wanted, you could also use this toy for an all over body massage.

Material / Texture

The Reflections Amber is made from tempered glass. This specific material rates a 10/10 on the Eden safety scale, and is hypoallergenic, non-porous, latex and phthalate free. Tempered glass is the kind of glass which goes by the name of Pyrex. Glass has no irregular smells or tastes, which is great for users with any sensitivities. Therefore when opening your toy for the first time, you won't be met with one of those toxic and reeking odors that other toys may have.

This toy is not made to look realistic, but it does have a wavy body that makes it very pleasing. These waves massage the vaginal walls wonderfully, and creates a sort of popping sensation in and out over each ridge. The texture of glass is smooth, and other than the waves, there are no nubs or bumps on this toy. Whether you're warmed up or lubing this toy up, it becomes very slippery, and glides without drag. Since this toy isn't made to look realistic, it doesn't have the feel of a penis either, so therefore it doesn't feel 'realistic'.

The texture itself aids in the stimulation of the vaginal walls, and if angled correctly, may possibly hit the g-spot as well. I cannot say for sure if the same would go for the p-spot, as I am female bodied. This particular toy is not harness compatible, as it has no flared base to support harness play. This is simply a wand to be used by hand whether solo or with a partner.

Design / Shape / Size

The Reflections Amber is a beautiful clear dildo with multiple amber/gold swirls on the inside of the toy and a shining and brilliant iridescent design on the outside. There are some air bubbles as well, but they are deep and are to be expected with hand blown glass such as this. These bubbles in no way effect the toy's performance, nor the stability of the glass. This toy is extremely beautiful, and when moved back and forth in light, really shines, which is dulled in the photos on the product page. You simply have to have it in your hand to really know how breathtaking the color is.

This dildo is designed with four 'bubbles' two of which, in the middle, are a more elongated shape. This particular dildo can be used as a double ended one, as both ends are insertable. One of the bulbs on the end is much more round, and bigger than the other end, so you can use this as a handle to get a good grip when thrusting. The shiny effect on this toy reminds me of that 'bubble' like color soap has when you blow bubbles. The measurements for this toy are as follows:

Overall length: 7-3/4"
Insertable length: 6-1/4"
Circumference: 4-1/4"
Diameter: 1-1/4"

This particular toy also weighs a whole pound. So, for those of you who tire easily, you may want to find a toy with less weight to it. The weight also adds to the stimulation when thrusting however, so you may overlook the weight even if you tire easily or fast. Beginners should work their way up to this toy, while intermediate users will find it to their liking. This does not have a realistic look, but I would not say that it is discreet, so if you're traveling with it, you'll want to hide it well.

Users who are fans of nubs and bumps may not find this toy appealing, but users looking to begin their journey into texture may enjoy this one.
    • Futuristic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

The bulbs really add to the sensations while inserted. It's not ideal for g-spot play, and isn't made for it, but if angled in a certain way you may hit your g-spot with one of the bubbles if you have a shallow one. For a thrusting toy, this one is perfect, as the bulbs pop in and out with each movement, you'll find yourself rocking to an orgasm in no time. If you're an intermediate user and are looking for a toy that will fill you up, then you may want to look elsewhere. This toy is not particularly girthy, but it would be harder for beginners to use.

since this toy is glass, there isn't a suction cup, and there's no flared base for harness compatibility. Once again, I stress that this toy isn't made for anal play either, but you could as long as you were very careful and kept a firm grip. Overall this toy performed as it should have, and aided in reaching orgasm.
    • Comfortable

Care and Maintenance

Glass is very simple to clean. You can boil it, bleach it in a 10% bleach 90% water solution, wipe it down with a toy wipe or cleanser, place it in your dishwasher, or simply wash it with soap and water. When washing in a sink or over other hard surfaces, be sure to maintain a firm grip on it, as glass becomes very slippery when wet. If you should break your toy, it should break into large chunks rather than shatter all over. If you're worried about dropping it, place a towel in the sink underneath it while you clean, and that should help some.

Never touch a glass toy after removing it from boiling water or the dishwasher with your hands. Wear gloves as the toy is going to be very hot when first removed. You don't want to cause yourself a nasty burn. This toy is compatible with all lubricants as well, so use whatever you like, and if using this toy in conjunction with another toy, make sure that the other one is compatible with the lubricant as well. It's always better to be on the safe side, and patch test an inconspicuous spot on toys with the lubricant you wish to use, but glass is compatible with all lubricants nonetheless.

When finished cleaning, remember to return this toy to it's packaging if you decide to keep it in the box it came in. If you have a padded pouch, even better, as this will keep the toy from bumping against others in your toy box.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Reflections Amber comes in a plastic box, with a plastic insert that holds the toy. The box is minimal, as well as recyclable if you choose to do so. I tend to keep all of my boxes that my toys come in for storage purposes. The box has the name of the toy on the front, as well as the company logo and a simple yet pretty floral looking design. My box looks nothing like the one on the product page.

There is nothing on the sides of the box, but on the back there are facts about the toy being body safe, and hygienic. It also says easy to clean, but does not go into further detail on how to clean it. In English, German, French, Spanish, and Dutch it says the following: Sensual glass shapes for sexual satisfaction. Once again, not very informative, and if you wish to toss this box you may. The box is clear, so it is in no way discreet, and you can clearly see what is inside of it, therefore, I wouldn't recommend this for gifting unless you intend to give it a nice gift wrap or gift bag.

Follow-up commentary
I still love this glass toy. The ridges are perfect for hitting those sweet spots. I am a fan of more textured toys, but this one is definitely worth the buy for something with a little less intimidating features and still provide you with great pleasure.
