Two sides of fun!

This item is definitely worth the buy if you are just starting to experiment with temperature play, or sex toys in general. This will probably not give you the kind of pleasure which will lead to earth shattering orgasm if you are an expert, but the toy is still a lot of fun to play with and a definite buy in my book.

Use

I use this toy strictly anally, because I am male, but this toy is great for both men and women who want to have a little temperature fun in the shower, or between the sheets. Its sleek design makes insertion a breeze, I don't have to use any lubricant at all to take this toy anally from either end. This toy is double ended, and as such offers a twofold experience like no other. Beginners may want to warm up with the "shaft" end of this toy before moving up to the "ridge" end, as the three bumps provide an amazing amount of sensation to the orifice, which may overwhelm users which aren't accustomed to something like this being inserted.

The rigidity of this toy makes it great for getting to those "hard to reach" places deep inside of you, and the large head of the toy insures that you will be able to massage your P- (or G-) spot. This toy can be easily maneuvered inside of you and the pommel grip on either end makes it easy to control with just the palm of your hand.

I think that this toy is best used in the shower, as it makes for an easy clean up AND you can use the water of the shower to warm up the toy as you pleasure yourself(or cool down if you are taking a cold shower). However, it is extremely easy to use this toy anywhere in the privacy of your own home, just run it under warm water, or store it in the fridge (or freezer if you want it colder) before use to REALLY kick in those awesome temperature sensations. I would not suggest using this toy anywhere with people around, as it is not something that you can exactly conceal easily. I would also discouraging participating in daily life with this toy inserted inside of you (please do not try to use this as a butt plug or any other sort of in-public self-pleasure device, it is not designed for this). You can use this by yourself or with a partner.

This toy is pretty safe, just be careful to not be overzealous, as the hard toy WILL bruise you internally if you aren't careful, I can speak to this from an experience I had when I got a little over-excited with this toy in the shower. This toy should be safe to use at a hot or cold temperature as long as you don't burn yourself, and shouldn't crack due to normal ranges of temperature (this means anywhere between freezing and hot). All glass WILL crack due to temperature, but if you get this toy so hot or so cold that it cracks, it probably would have injured you to insert it at that temperature anyway, so it was really better that it broke before you had to go to the hospital. If you are using this toy under normal, humanly bearable, conditions you should have no problems though, and you don't need to worry about losing it inside of yourself, because there is a flare on both ends.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of durable Borosilicate glass, the same type of glass used in Pyrex brand cooking-ware. This insures that the glass does not crack due to expansion caused by temperature change. This material has a fracture toughness around 116 psi and a shear toughness of 5.8*10^6 psi, and is designed to break into big pieces if it is broken. This glass also sports a specific heat capacity of around 775 J/kg*K (this means it takes a huge amount of energy in order to change the temperature) so it will be able to retain temperature for a while, making it a perfect temperature play toy.

The toy has an immaculate surface with three smooth bumps on one end, and one smooth head on the other, sporting a shaft of a few inches behind it. The smoothness of the surface of this toy makes both vaginal and anal insertion incredibly easy and painless, and the large bumps act as the perfect pommel insuring a good grip on the toy even during shower use. The surface has no ridges or bumps, so it is an easy toy for beginners, and still great fun for experts. Once you get more used to toy play, you may want to go for a toy with a little more texture to it than this one however, as it will not provide much pleasure to any orifice once you insert it past the ridges.

This toy is made of glass, and as such has absolutely no give, your body has to accommodate the toy, not the other way around, so make sure to take the toy slowly to insure that you don't injure yourself, but this toy is hardly dangerous. This is the first toy I have ever used, and I have had no problems accommodating it anally, this toy is excellent for beginners looking to explore in temperature play.

Design / Shape / Size

Size Comparison
As you can see from the picture, this toy is around the size of a handheld flashlight. The toy may be almost entirely inserted except for the pommel of either end which the user will hold on to during use. I find that you can insert more if you start from the shaft end and end with the ridge end. Those three bumps make the toy feel much bigger than it actually is when inserting from that end, so it is harder to make it go in further this way. The shape of this toy works wonders for me; the shaft end is perfect for deep penetration message and the ridge end is amazing for massaging the opening of the orifice of insertion.

This toy is a good size, I can just fit it anally, and it is not so narrow that the girth is not noticeable inside. As the user becomes more experienced, they may desire a more girthy or textured toy, but it is great all around toy as the length and girth will be a good fit to the average consumer. The toy has a very artistic look, and has little to no resemblance to the phallus of a male. The red carrying bag makes the toy discreet, and the glass is durable enough for travel; the carrying apparatus looks more like a pouch to carry your glasses in than anything.

Performance

My favorite part of this toy is the flared bumps that are just fantastic for running across your opening or any sensitive internal area. The smooth shaft at the other end makes it easy to slide in and out at a comfortable pace, and the entire apparatus is easily maneuvered to maximize the pleasure from internal play. Of course the [italic]Pièce de résistance[/italic] is the toy's ability to change and retain temperature to allow for mind blowing temperature play on your most sensitive areas.

As this was my first toy, I was not quite sure of exactly how much texture I would want out of my toy, and this was a very safe bet to go with. I would advise any beginner to buy this product as an experimental toy to become more familiar with what your body can handle. After a few uses it became apparent that this toy was good for me, but it lacked something that prevented it from being perfect, and that was texture. I really wish it had more bumps or ridges to pleasure my sphincter during anal use, but it is really a great toy as it is; it feels amazing and makes masturbation so much better than it used to be. This toy is a definite buy for the beginner, or the user that is not too fond of overly textured toys.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

This toy comes with a simple red carrying bag, which fits the toy easily, and has a drawstring at one end, which you can use to hang the entire apparatus on some sort of hook close to your favorite masturbation location. I personally leave this beautiful baby hanging on a loofah hook in my shower. You can throw this toy somewhere in your fridge or freezer to have it ready the next time you want an icy treat to put inside of you. Basically, anywhere you can hang or fit something the size of a flashlight is a place you can store this baby. The bag will prevent scratches and scuffs during storage.

This toy is also a breeze to clean when you have sufficiently satisfied yourself. You can clean it with any soft hand soap, and the toy will not become too slippery during cleaning, I usually just clean it with hand soap in the shower after I am done. It is also dishwasher safe, just do not use any caustic detergents such as lye, or any sort of scrubbing or otherwise textured soaps, as these could potentially scratch the surface of the glass. You should probably avoid putting this soap in any sort of acid, bleach, or other potentially hazardous materials.

As the toy is made of glass, it is safe to use with any lubricant, and easy to use with no lubricant at all as well, whatever your personal preference may be. It should not crack, shatter, or break during under normal temperatures, and should also survive short falls if you ever do lose a grip. This type of glass is designed to break into two pieces as apposed to shattering into hundreds, so if it does break the user should have an easy time cleaning up the glass without being injured. If at any time the user should notice and cracks in the glass they should immediately discontinue use and acquire an entirely new toy, even if you think the damage is minor. Any crack or flaw in the glass could lead breaking, internal cuts, or even cause the toy to break inside of you.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The toy comes only with the red bag pictured earlier, nothing else. There are no instructions for care or use with the product, nor does it come with warranty information other than the invoice from edenfantasys which includes their website return policy. It is literally just packed inside of the shipping box with whatever packing material they happen to be using (mine came with brown paper). The product did not move inside of the shipping box at all, and the consumer can rest assured that their product did not get abused along the way. You could use the shipping box for storage I suppose, but other than that, the packaging (excluding the carrying bag) provides no use after the consumer has received the product unless they want to return it within 60 days. The box that it is shipped in also doesn't have pictures of sex toys all over it, so your neighbors won't be able to judge you, and you can continue living your perverted life in secrecy.

The red carrying bag IS very nice though; it fits the toy well and alloys you to store it either on a surface or hanging from the wall or door. The fact that it didn't come with instructions for use should not deter you, because using this product should be pretty self explanatory (insert rod A into orifice B, if you know what I mean).
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

I don't have much else to say about this product other than it is an amazing toy to use on yourself, I am extremely satisfied with the experience that it has provided. Even though I would like a more textured toy to pleasure my anal entryway, this toy makes up for it in many other areas, and if I could go back, I would DEFINITELY buy it again.

Experience

I am a male, so I use this toy anally, it is a unique and amazing experience which has left me satisfied in ways that I never have been before. This was my first toy, but will not be my last, and I'm sure females that use this toy will feel the same way about it. If you are a male and are afraid of having a little fun with your backdoor, I recommend you at least try to warm up to the idea, as there is no feeling quite like pleasuring yourself in this way.
Follow-up commentary
Now that I've gotten more used to using toys, it's much easier to use this without hurting myself and the experience is a lot better now that I know what spots I need to hit. This is definitely still a great buy in my book and I would recommend this toy to anyone in the market for a dildo.

    Fabulous review! I am really looking forward to reading more of your reviews! I especially liked you frankness about using it anally and I imagine you will convince some men to give it a try, if they haven't already!
