confused.

For the price we paid, this was worth it. It is beautiful (although not as beautiful as in the product picture), well made, and cheap. It works for kegel exercise, for g-spot play, maybe p-spot play, and whatever your perverted mind can come up with. I know these are hand made, but I am going to take off one star because the color is just no there.

Use

I feel this works best as a g-spot or p-spot toy. I know, the base is not flared. But with the large bulb at one end, I feel it is pretty safe and should not go anywhere. Others might disagree. This worked great on my wife's g-spot. Glass toys also work great for temperature play. Just keep a glass of warm or cold water near your play area to change the temperature of the toy in between uses. Just put the toy in the glass of water for a few minutes, then use on your partner. You can even rotate between warm and cold to keep them guessing.

This can even be used for kegel exercises. Just insert it into your vagina, then contract your kegels while gently tugging on it.

This is great for roommate living. It is quite and the only noise that will be heard, would be the noises coming from yourself. Also, since there are no moving parts or motors; you can use this in the tub or shower. And since it is not made of silicone, you can use silicone lube with it in the shower or tub.

You can travel with this. Just make sure to pack it with a lot of padding. Glass is sturdy, but will break with a hard hit in just the right spot; or a hit with just the right type of material. Something made of metal or stone could do some damage to this.

Material / Texture

This is made from tempered glass. It is smooth and heavy. Glass does not have a scent or taste to it. It is nonporous, so it will never pick up any scents or tastes from use. Glass is also very ridge and not flexible at all. So care is needed when you are using a toy made from glass. Thrusting too hard might result in bruises and pain. You also will want to take care to not drop this onto a hard surface, as the fall might cause it to chip, crack, or outright break into pieces.

As stated above, there is no texture to this. It is completely smooth. It also requires very little lube during use. Glass is very slick by itself. Plus because it is nonporous, it will not absorb any lube during use.

This can be used by beginners all the way up to the professional sex toy users.

Design / Shape / Size

Lets start with the color. It is not as bright and detailed is in the product picture. You have to look just right to see the gold swirl inside the glass. It is dull n color and brightness. There is also some discoloration on a few spots on the exterior. It is hard to explain. Its almost like some of the gold glass used for the swirls extended too far outwards and came through the clear glass while making the dildo. I purchased this because I loved the colors, so I was a little disappointed when I opened up the package and found that it was so dull.

This is about 7 1/2 inches long. This is a heavy piece of glass, it weighs just over 10 ounces. The bigger bulb on the bottom is just over 1 1/2 inches in diameter and about 1 1/2 inches long. The smaller bulb on the top is just under 1 1/4 inches in diameter and about 1 inch long. This is followed by a longer bulb that is about 1 3/8 inches in diameter and about 1 3/4 inches long. This is followed by a even longer and wider bulb. The third bulb is just under 1 1/2 inches in diameter and about 2 inches long. The smaller diameter areas between the bulbs is about 3/4 of a inch in diameter.

I could not really find any major flaws in the glass (with the exception of the colors). The bulbs were not perfectly round and smooth, you can tell that this is hand made. But the quality is not poor, it is right where it should be. I would expect better if we had paid more for it, but for the price they did a good job.

This is kind of designed like a set of anal beads or a kegel bar. But it kind of also looks like a g-spot toy at the same time. It is just classified as a dildo on edens site. It can be used for all these things, plus what every else you can come up with.

Performance

This worked pretty well for a g-spot dildo. It is not curved like most g-spot toys, but the bigger bulb will hit the g-spot when used with rocking motions. We found that if you just insert the bigger end, and just rock it back and forth with light smaller motions; that it would hit her g-spot. It hits it because of its size; not because it is designed to hit the g-spot. It does not do as good of a job as the pure wand or the ella, but it will work. And the price is a lot more friendly then the price of the pure wand. Its a good starting price for g-spot toys.

The works ok as a p-spot toy. It kind of hits it, but not enough to give you the amount of pleasure you are looking for. It is not designed for p-spot play, I know. But we still gave it a try. It was a little disappointing in the aspect. While it did a good job of warming me up, it did not do a good job at giving me pleasure. We are going to stick with using this as a g-spot toy.

So overall, we feel this will work better for the ladies then the guys. That statement is not meant to keep guys from trying it out. It might work for you. But for us, it did not cut it.

Care and Maintenance

Glass is easy to care for. We wash ours with warm water and soap. Dry it off, and put it in the toy drawer. Its ready to go the next time we pull it out to play with. Of course there are other options for caring for your glass toys. You can use a bleach solution. You can use a toy cleaner. You can boil it in water for a few minutes. You can even toss it in the dishwasher on the top shelf. Soo many options for cleaning your glass toys.

Care takes a little bit more caution. You don't want to store it somewhere it could get bumped with something hard, like stone or metal. You also don't want to store it somewhere it has the possibility of being dropped a good distance, as it could break from the fall. A foam padded bag is a great option for storage. The product packaging does not really do a good job as far as protecting it during storage. It will work; but it is a pain in the butt to insert the toy, or to remove it from the packaging. Plus there is no padding in the package. I would choose another option for storage.

Packaging

This comes in a cheap plastic box. The plastic is thin and clear. Mine came with some cracks in the sides, and starting to fall apart. The front of the box is clear and shows the toy sitting inside. The sides and back have a bit of information about the toy and the company. This is not a very discreet package. I have seen a lot worse, but this is still something I would not want to leave out on the counter or coffee table.

There are no instructions included on the packaging, either for use or care. Not that you need any, but they would have been nice. The box is about 2 inches by 3 inches by 8 inches tall. It is just slightly larger then the actual toy. I hate it when the box is 4 times as large as it needs to be. This one is not.

    Thanks for the review. I don't have vivid colors on mine, but it is not faded, either & I have a lot of iridescence on the outside surface making it really pretty. I like that you guys tried all sorts of different uses, thanks for mentioning all that.

    What a versatile toy! I mean, it's a shame that it wasn't as pretty as you thought that it would be, but it seems like you guys still get a lot of use out of it. Thanks for the review!

    Great review! I just got the very similar Icicles No. 8, and it has that iridescent coating which feels slightly gritty to me. Does this one have that feel as well?
