Atlas, My First Titan LoverIt may have a simplistic form, but it does have diverse uses and can accommodate to personal taste. What I found most inviting about it was it's almost glowing color. Its lack of ridges, bumps, and texture maybe a drawback for some, but it was an excellent choice for a beginner to both glass and toys.
Because of the Atlas's flared base, it has the advantage of being used safely vaginally or anally, without getting lost. This also can be attached to a harness because of its base.
As a first time toy user, this is valuable experience for me in learning my likes and dislikes in both glass and toys in general. More than likely this will be entertaining for the beginner or for the more advanced user. This toy has a lot of potential, that is only limited by your imagination.
The fluid nature of glass allows it to be made into any form conceivable; once set into it's shape, it becomes completely rigid. With Atlas, the smooth, ridge-less length of glass provides for a basic phallic form, in which to experiment with new sensations of insertion, within previously unexplored places. There are no bumpy distractions that come with other dildos; Atlas's from is solidly smooth, linearly unbroken, and has a sleek form, which in itself is useful for a multitude of applications.
It's rigid nature can cause bruising if used to roughly anally or vaginally. If chipping or cracking occurs on the Atlas, discontinue use to prevent injury. Even though the Atlas is made of borosilicate glass and therefore more shatter resistant under thermal stress; it is still a good idea to prevent it from going from one extreme in temperature to another to quickly, due to the possibility of the glass cracking. This means You should avoid freezing it and applying it to boiling water, otherwise is will crack. Also, glass does have a tendency to chip, crack, or break when dropped on hard surfaces, and great care should be taken to prevent it from being dropped on hard surfaces.
Both beginners and more advanced users will find the smooth texture and temperature changing properties, a sensory complex instrument of pleasure.
It is the most beautiful sapphire blue. The shape is a solid straight cylinder only broken once, with a flared out base. Dimensions are important here:
Circumference of: 3"
Diameter of: 1"
Full Length: 7"
Insertable: 6 1/2"
Photos below will help to illustrate the proportional size, width, and length as compared to every day objects such as a #2 pencil and SD photo card.
As far as discretion goes, my Atlas came with a nifty little red velvet drawstring bag, subtle enough that it can be well hidden among lingerie. I wouldn't hold my breath wondering if one of my snoopy friends will find it. The lack of ridges or curvature doesn't bother me as a first toy. It gave me a sense of my dimensions, my limits, and my preferences. I don't know if it is a good fit for everyone, but it is was a worthwhile exploration for me.
Performance wise, I felt that Atlas was phenomenal in bed; it stretched my boundaries of what I thought toys could do. It's smooth texture helped me to feel, in an almost tactile way with this instrument, my internal structure and shape. I had no idea of my own capacity or internal strength until Atlas. Texturally, it lacks bumps, ridges, swirls or curves, which might bother others who are used to more textural variation along the shaft of a dildo. For me, this textural elongated and smooth shaft was perfect for my self exploration as a beginner in the realm of toys; for other beginners, it's hard glass material could be intimidating as a first toy. As for size, I originally had no idea what my preference would be as a beginner, but have learned to value it's "average" size for me, for others may find it overwhelming or underwhelming in that regard.
For me, Atlas is only the beginning, but I am so excited to have this wonderful piece of functional glass art in my home. I have so many plans for Atlas that include adding attachments and using it for other fun games I have yet to experience. Atlas has both exploratory applications for me and rudimentary phallic design for me to build on for my future collection of toys. There is one only a few things I would improve on with the design for the next Atlas generation. More than likely most would agree that including either gradual bumps, ridges, or swirls for the more advanced user would be an option for future designs.
