Going over the RainbowThe Rainbow G offers a variety of sensations and is pretty to look at. It's not too big or intimidating, and the nubs are noticeable but not intrusive. The curve of the toy may be a bit drastic for some, as it was for me, but overall the toy worked well and offered me a great introduction into textured glass toys.
Glass is nonporous and one of the safest materials for toys to be made of. It is hypo-allergenic, latex free and phthalates free. It is also waterproof and compatible with all types of lubricant. There's no odor at all, and being made of Pyrex glass (think kitchen cookware) means that it won't shatter into shards if it breaks; instead, it'll chip and fracture into chunks.
Before playing with the toy, you should always check it for nicks, chips, and cracks. It can be heated or cooled down for temperature play, but you shouldn't stick it in the oven or switch extreme temperatures too quickly. Also, when playing, be careful not to thrust too hard as glass has absolutely zero give and can cause bruising to your cervix.
The size is not intimidating at all; mine measured in with an overall length of 7-3/4" and a circumference of 4-3/4" at the widest part. For anyone new to glass, or curved toys, or textured toys, I'd say that this is a good one to start with as nothing about the toy is overly big or scary, but there are a lot of things going on with the toy at once. It might take a bit of trial and error to find the right hold for you.
The toy is travel friendly; just pop it in its padded black pouch and go.
It comes with a padded black pouch for easy storage, but don't just go throwing it around as you may chip the glass. Don't put the toy through sudden, extreme temperature changes either as this will stress the glass and cause it to fracture. Always check the toy for nicks, chips and cracks and never use one that has them.
It's compatible with all types of lubricants.
