I Found my SerenityThe Reflections Serenity is a glass dildo that features a gentle curve that will feel pleasurable during you. If you can't afford an Njoy Pure Wand, this is a good alternative, but if you already have a Pure Wand, you'll probably end up liking your Pure Wand better. However, in its own right, it is a quality glass sex toy that's bound to bring you a pretty good amount of pleasure - especially if you want a large-diameter glass toy.
The packaging for the Reflections Serenity is basic but presentable. The packaging is made from plastic, and the dildo itself is kept in a plastic tray inside the plastic box. This box will work for storage, and the dildo does not include a storage bag. The packaging is tasteful and okay for gift-giving, and the packaging allows you to see the dildo through the plastic to know what you're purchasing. It's not the most luxurious packaging I've ever seen, but it does keep the dildo safe and present it in a comfortable way.
Serenity is a large dildo. Really. This is a piece of glass that's a lot bigger in diameter and weight than most glass sex toys on the market. I'm not sure why they chose to make it this way, but this toy is surprisingly heavy compared to other glass toys I own. It's nowhere near the weight of the Pure Wand, but it's still heavier than something like the Bent Graduate. One end of the dildo has a diameter of an inch while the other has a diameter of two inches. I don't know about you, but I can't usually comfortably enough a two-inch dildo in flexible materials, so when it's in hard glass? This thing is definitely too large for me to comfortable enough. However, if the Vixen Creations Randy or the Njoy Eleven are your idea of a fun time, the larger-diameter head may end up being a blessing instead of (like with me) a curse. (Tuesday posted a great picture on her review that shows that the Serenity's large head is definitely bigger than the larger end of the Pure Wand. Their smaller ends are about the same.)
The Reflection is definitely one of the larger-diameter g-spot toys. I didn't have as much luck with it as a g-spot toy as, say, the Bent Graduate. However, it did hit the g-spot in a more passing manner. It was much more of a gentle brushing up against the g-spot instead of a direct hit like the Bent Graduate tends to get. The fact that it hits my illusive g-spot is actually impressive though, so if most g-spot toys tend to hit your g-spot, this one is going to be downright amazing. (This is when using the smaller end)
When using the smaller end, the big bulb on the opposite end works amazingly as a handle. It's actually surprising. I much prefer to use it this way just because the bulb on the opposite end is so large and easy to grasp. Even with slippery hands, it's pretty easy to grab the bulb for control. However, handling the Reflections Serenity can get a bit difficult because it is really heavy. If you have wrist problems handling the Pure Wand, you'll have problems with this. Along with this, the Pure Wand's bulbs are also nice and distinct from the shaft. One of the bulbs on this one is distinct, but if you want to use the smaller end as a handle, it's much, much difficult to grasp and can get pretty frustrating.
Using the larger end is possible, but you must like larger toys for that one. I tried it, and it just was not an experience for me. If you've tried those G-Pop sex toys or enjoy the larger end of the Pure Wand, the larger end is for you. However, the PureWand actually gets larger in the shaft towards the bulb while the Serenity stays at a common diameter throughout the toy, so you get a really big "shock" when using the bulb because the shaft is literally 1/2 an inch smaller on all sides than the large bulb itself. However, if you enjoy that filling sensation, the Reflections Serenity is going to provide it.
This glass sex toy holds the same properties that other glass toys do. It is extremely slick and easy to insert. It will only require a small bit of lubrication (if any) to insert. Along with that, if it is soaked in warm water or cold water before insertion, the glass itself will retain that temperature during use. Furthermore, glass is perfectly safe to use. This is not hollow, and it would take a whole lot more than vaginal muscles to break it.
I can't say I'm not fond of the Reflections Serenity, but I don't think it's the best toy out there and I'm pretty sure it's not the one for me. If you already own the Pure Wand, this toy isn't going to blow your mind, but if you want a glass toy that's larger in diameter than most glass toys or you enjoy really filling and large sensations, this may just be the perfect sex toy for you.
