Not So Charming, In My Opinion.

This is a beautiful slender glass wand that may appeal to a certain amount of users. It's beautiful in color and shape, but was too slender for my tastes. While the curve is effective, I like to have a full feeling and this did not provide it. Still, it is great for the price, and the texture is nice.

Use

This toy can be used by couples or those looking for a toy for solo play. It's designed with a curve to stimulate the g-spot, while having texture to stimulate the vaginal wall. This toy can be used by beginners or advanced users, but the texture may be too much for some. Whether you're on a bed, in the shower or somewhere more adventurous, this toy can go with you, as long as you don't bump or drop it on a hard surface. This toy is manipulated by thrusting, and users should be able to feel the texture and the curve nicely in use.

Remember that because this toy is glass, it is very rigid, and should not be thrust too vigorously. Glass toys can bruise the cervix if mishandled, so always communicate with your partner if they're in control of the toy. This toy does not have a flared base and therefore is not recommended for anal play. This toy becomes very slippery when wet or lubricated, and could easily become 'lost' inside. Save yourself the embarrassing trip to the ER and do not use this anally.

Glass can also be used for temperature play. Whether you like to heat things up or cool things down, glass maintains a temperature pretty well. Heat it up in warm water, or cool it down in an ice bath to regulate the temperature, and always check how hot or cold the surface is on the back of your hand before using. Never microwave, boil or freeze your toy for temperature play. This can cause your body serious internal injury.

Material / Texture

This toy is made from 100% borosilicate glass or as its better known commercial name, Pyrex glass. This glass is completely non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex and phthalate free. There are no tastes or smells to glass and it does not harbor any after use and cleaning either. Users with sensitivities may find glass an ideal material as long as they enjoy the rigidity of the toy. Upon removal from the pouch, the toy will be cool to the touch, but warms up nicely to the temperature of your hand.

The material is hard, rigid, and adds to the stimulation because of its rigidity. It does not look or feel realistic, but it stimulates the user vaginally quite well in its design. If you like girthier toys, then this may not be the best, but it's curve is a nice plus. Beginners will find something to enjoy about this toy as long as they aren't too overwhelmed by the texture of it. Overall, it is a very beautiful blue wand.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Charming Duet by SSA Glass is an oceanic blue dildo with darker blue ripples and nubs. The ripples extend the entire length of the toy all around and provide some wonderful stimulation. There are six ripples around the shaft in all. The nubs on the ends are only subtly raised, so the user may not be too overwhelmed by the sensations they cause. There are ten nubs in all on the toy, in two rows of five each on each end, just where the toy curves to stimulate the g-spot.

The measurements are as follows:

Length: 8"
Insertable length: 8"
Circumference: 3-1/4"
Diameter: 1"

This toy is quite whimsical, but it is still not very discreet. People will know this is used for vaginal play from the way it is curved and textured. It would make a great conversational piece, as it looks almost like a blue cucumber! The size is great for beginners, while the texture may be too much for some. Advanced users may not enjoy the lack of girth, but overall it's a nice toy.

If you're wanting to travel with this toy, pack it somewhere where it won't bump into things or get scratched. It's small enough to pack in a purse or your luggage without worry, and comes with a pouch for storage.

Performance

I loved the way the toy felt inside of me, but it didn't provide me with the full feeling that I like. The textures and the curve were great, but I like some girth to my toys, and this glass piece is slender. The nubs and the waves on the toy stimulated my vaginal wall, and the curve did provide me with some minor g-spot stimulation, but this toy wasn't quite what I wanted or thought it would be. It's beautiful to look at and easy to use, but the biggest complaint I have about it is the girth, it's too slender for me, but maybe not for a beginner. Overall, this piece is very well made.

While this toy doesn't have a suction cup, and it's not harness compatible, users may find this toy to be perfect where I didn't. Beginners will especially love this piece if they're looking to try textured glass for the first time, but it may be a bit overwhelming to some. This toy may not look realistic, but it is far from discreet, so I wouldn't keep it on the table for the world to see if you don't want anyone knowing you own a toy.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Glass is one of the easiest materials to clean due to it being non-porous. You can wash this toy with hot soapy water, a toy cleaner or a toy wipe, boil it, put it in the top rack of your dishwasher, or bleach it in a 10% bleach, 90% water solution. Remember to get in the crevices with a nice soft bristled brush, to remove any leftover gunk. When cleaning, be sure to keep a firm grip as glass becomes extra slippery when wet, and you shouldn't bump this toy against hard surfaces, as it has the potential to break. Always check your toys for chips, scratches or cracks in the glass, and discard immediately if any are found, as even the slightest scratch has the potential to cause internal injury.

The glass is meant to break into large chunks rather than shatter if dropped, but always remember to be careful when washing your toy. If you are washing your toy with soap, bleach or toy cleaners, remember to wash it thoroughly. The soap and chemicals can cause irritation or chemical burns if any residue of them are left behind. If boiling or putting your toy in the dishwasher, remove carefully, as the surface will be hot. This could cause a burn, so it's best to let your toy sit and cool off for a while before removing it.

Once you've cleaned and dried your toy, return it to the pouch provided or your own that you purchased or made. Keep the toy away from other hard objects and bumping against other toys, as it could damage the toy if it is not properly secure. Do not exert too much pressure on a glass toy, as it could snap or break. If glass is properly cared for, it should last you a lifetime.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

All SSA Glass items come packaged standard in bubble wrap inside of a non-padded, red velveteen pouch. This pouch comes with no instructions or tags and is as minimal as packaging gets. The pouch is soft and has a little nylon drawstring to close it. If you would like the pouch to remain closed you would have to tie if off yourself, as it will not otherwise. This pouch is great for storage, but if you'd like a little more security you may purchase a pouch with padding here on Eden or make your own.

This pouch makes gifting a little complicated. While this would make a great stocking stuffer for a close friend or a partner at Christmastime, it would not make a great gift on any other occasion. If you want to gift this, it would be better to pick out a nice gift bag or a box to wrap it in beforehand. The bubble wrap around the toy cannot be recycled, but it helps to protect the toy from damage if you keep it inside of the pouch provided. While the pouch is discreet and you cannot see what is inside, the toy comes out of the pouch easily unless tied closed.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
Follow-up commentary
This toy was just too slim and boring for me. I prefer a little more girth to my toys, and this one just didn't fit my standards. The curve was too subtle to reach the right places, and the texture was more for beginners than something that would appeal to my tastes. This isn't a bad toy for beginners, but the charming duet just didn't charm me into liking it enough.
