Business is Blooming

The Flowered Friend started my love affair with glass toys. This pretty little dildo has an excellent g-spot curve, interesting texture, and great size for both beginners and more advanced players.

Use

The Flowered Friend works best for vaginal penetration as the flared base isn't quite flared enough to make anal penetration safe. It has a wonderful g-spot curve that is good at hitting both deep and shallow g-spots. This toy is perfect for anyone who likes texture. The nubs are stimulating without being overwhelming and add to the overall experience of the toy rather than distracting from it as more complex textures can do.

Glass is a very hard material so solo play may be best when getting used to it; be gentle at first to avoid possible bruising or soreness. With some practice though, it makes an attractive toy to use with a partner.

Like most glass toys, the Flowered Friend is perfect for temperature play. Just soak it in a little warm or cool water and the glass will remain that temperature for some time. After warming it up or cooling it down, the toy can be used vaginally or simply pressed to various areas of the body (particularly nipples or clitoris) for exciting stimulation.

One of my favorite parts of this toy however is that the flower base is just heavy enough to allow the toy to be propped up on a surface and ridden or bounced on. This is a great way to hit the g-spot but requires a little practice and a lot of carefulness.

Material / Texture

This toy is made from tempered glass, a 10 out of 10 on the material safety scale. It is non-porous so it won't hold any bacteria and is safe to share provided it has been cleaned between uses. Glass contains none of the potentially harmful chemicals that are found in some toy materials which makes it safe for even the most sensitive individual. An added bonus is that there is no smell such as that which may accompany other materials.

Again, the texture on this toy is great for just about anyone. Both beginners and those more experienced with texture should be pleased with the nubs. The head of the toy is a bit bigger than the shaft which provides a nice filling feeling with initial penetration.

It is very rigid, though, which some people may find uncomfortable. There is no flexibility or give in glass toys, and they do not have a realistic feel.

Design / Shape / Size

First, this toy is lovely to look at. I bought the blue version since I'm not a big fan of pink. The color is a very deep blue. It is the sort of thing that would look pretty sitting out on a shelf if it wasn't so obviously a dildo.

The size is moderate and not at all intimidating to beginners. It is approximately 7 1/2 inches long, with an insertable length of about 6 1/2 inches. The shaft of the toy is about an inch wide but the smooth head is closer to 1 1/2 inches, with an overall circumference of about 4 inches for the shaft and 4 3/4 inches for the head. Glass is a very heavy material which makes it easy to feel but can be tiring on the hands and wrists.

The flower on the end is a generic flower shape with yellow and light blue petals. It may have been more interesting to match the flowers to the pink or blue of the toy a little better but it doesn't look bad.

Performance

This toy is easy to use for just what it was intended for, vaginal penetration and g-spot stimulation. The curve is just enough to be pleasing without putting too much pressure on such a sensitive spot. The nubs create interesting sensations inside. However, since this is just a vaginal dildo, you may want to pair it with a clitoral vibe if you are one of the many women unlikely to orgasm from penetration alone.

The smooth head of the toy is useful for rubbing on the clit but the hardness may be too much for some people. I found that rubbing the head or the nubby shaft on my clit worked wonders for me.

Temperature play with the Flowered Friend works really well. Just a few minutes in warm or cool water brings it to the right temperature and the temperature lasts 10-15 minutes for me depending on how hot/cold I originally made it.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The ease of keeping it clean has to be one of the best things about this toy. There is nothing you can't use on this toy. Wash it with soap and water, use your favorite toy cleaner, wipe it down with a toy wipe, or even just throw it in the dishwasher. Glass is very easy to keep clean. The nubs aren't quite high enough to gunk up around them, so there is no trouble with cleaning at all.

While tempered glass isn't delicate at all, you still might want to keep this toy either in its original box or wrapped up to keep it from banging around, especially if you keep your toys in something that gets moved often. I personally just sit this toy down inside my toy box, but I wouldn't keep it in a drawer or anything unprotected.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Flowered Friend came in a very pretty black box with a clear plastic front to make the toy visable. It fit inside a plastic shell inside the box. The box can easily be used to store the toy in if you don't mind the space it takes up. The outside of the box has instructions for care and cleaning as well as a QVC code for smartphone users to look up more information.
    • Good for storage
