Gold YellerThis toy is an excellent choice if you are looking for something different. It really makes for interesting variety in the bedroom, with or without your partner. The ability to use temperature play with this toy makes it a must have for any collection. This also makes for a great- first glass dildo.
Excellent sensations with temp play
Possible bruising of cervix
It does have a flared base, so it should be safe to use anally. Since it stays slippery it won't create fiction (which can be a pain the ass, literally). You can use your temp play to warm it up a little so that your muscles can relax, making it easier to insert.
I think this toy is great for anyone! This is my first time using glass, and it is one of those toys that is less forgiving material wise. It is solid. It is not flexible. It is possible to bruise your cervix if you thrust too hard with this toy, so be careful. Personally, this is something that is hard for me to do because I tend to really get into my toys. I did have a hard time not thrusting this deep and hard tonight. I had to try and keep it in the end of my vagina for a more shallow thrust.
If you do bruise your cervix, simply take it easy for a while. Maybe take a break from penetration for a few days and some tylenol to feel better. I have had this happen to me in the past, both from rough sex and less forgiving toys, and it is not fun.
I personally don't like nubs on toys; I had a bad experience with a rabbit style vibrator before. The nubs actually hurt me. So I was a little leery of this one at first (in fear that it would be painful) but I decided to give this a shot and see. I really like the texture, and I will be thinking of trying more textured toys again.
I'd like to elaborate on a few things. First off is temperature play. Why would I want to use temperature play, you ask? I asked the same thing when coming across this toy. After doing some research (and experimenting) I have found that temperature play adds added stimulation and sensation to your sex toy experience.
Warmth allows you to get going more quickly, since heat helps engorge any area it comes into contact with. Cold does the opposite, causing your blood vessels to constrict. It also 'calms' you down, so to speak. So you can imagine that switching between the two can get very interesting. More on that later.
Take care when freezing or boiling glass. Since Pyrex is a "softer" glass it should not shatter if it breaks, but you still want to use caution and avoid using extreme temperatures in any situation.
You do NOT want to use anything completely frozen internally. Wait until it has started to melt. After removing from the freezer, run cool water over the dildo until it thaws a little (look for condensation building up on the surface of the toy). The frost of the dildo could cause it to freeze to your skin (ever see A Christmas Story? When he got his tongue stuck on the flagpole? not good lol). An easier method to cool would be to skip the freezer altogether and simply run it in ice water for a little while.
As far as heat goes, you need to be very careful when experimenting. DO NOT microwave or "cook" your toy in the oven. Microwaving can leave hot spots causing the toy to be different temperatures in different spots. you do not want to stick it somewhere only to find out that it is 100* F ... and the oven, well, that is just extreme and dangerous.
The only issue I have with this toy is that I am scared of bruising my cervix, since I can get kind of rough.
It is compatible with silicone, oil or water lubes. I would take care when using this with other glass toys, since you don't want to do any damage to the toys or yourself. It would be great with a clitoral stimulator for dual sensations.
I really like this little fact. It makes me appreciate my toy that much more- knowing the time and energy that went into this one little piece of art that brings me great joy.
Then I switched it up. I didn't want to switch to cold, because warm was just so pleasurable. However, I got up the oomph and dipped it in some ice water. Once I inserted it again it was fantastic. Every time I switched from one to the other it just heightened the sensations that much more. I think it is because it was causing my nerves/tissues to constrict and expand, creating an opposite effect of the previous feeling.
This toy made for a great first glass dildo experience. I am very pleased with it, and I look forward to buying more glass and textured toys. As soon as I slid this thing in me it was fantastic. The contrast between the chilled sensation of the glass versus heated was the coolest thing ever! Makes me happy I decided to step out of the box on this one and try something new :)
