Who Says Christmas Has to Cum Once a Year?!

I would recommend this to anyone looking to try out glass for the first time since it has no curves or texture to it. While this isn't a favorite of mine it will get use out of it later down the road, whether it be for a full on masturbation session or a simple tightening of my pelvic muscles on it.

Use

I have had my eye on the Sweet Candy Cane glass dildo from SSA Glass for years, while all those years it may not have been made by the exact same company it was the same design and shape! I was so excited when I got it on sale for $7.50 a few months back tossed it in my cart and this is where it all begins.

The Sweet Candy Cane is best used as your basic dildo, since it has the hook on the end it is safe to use for anal play if you wish. I believe that anyone from a beginner with glass right up to an experienced person with glass could use this and get pleasure from it. Anyone from man to woman can use this piece and enjoy it just the same.





Sweet Candy Cane can be used in temperature play from cooling it down to heating it up. I will explain below the way to cool down or heat up your Sweet Candy Cane below.

***How to Cool it Down
In order to cool down your Sweet Candy Cane I would suggest putting it into a cup of ice water for a few minutes. Please do not put this in the freezer to cool it down that is just bad news all in itself. When I hear people say they store their glass in the freeze until it is time to use it I cringe or when they say they put it in the freezer for an hour or so before play I cringe there as well. I picture tongue stuck to frozen pole, you don't want to place your dildo in the freezer as it can cause damage to your insides whether it be vaginally or anally. I am not sure about you but personally I wouldn't want a frozen dildo stuck in me while I wait for it to thaw out. I don't put my glass in ice water or the freezer as room temperature is cold enough for me.

****Heat it Up!****
To heat up your Sweet Candy Cane place it into a cup of hot tap water for a period of time to heat up the glass. Please do not put this in the microwave,boiling water or remove right from the dishwasher for playtime, doing so can cause uneven heating of the material and in turn cause burns to your most delicate tissues.

Also, please take caution when heating and cooling it is best not to go from one extreme to the other when it comes to glass as it will eventually weaken which will lead to possible breakage. While Pyrex Glass is very durable its like everything else in the world its not invincible and can still break. If the glass does break it won't shatter Pyrex usually breaks in big chunks.

Take precaution with thrusting as with glass you can cause major bruising to the vaginal walls,cervix or the anal cavity. Before each use, I would recommend that you check out your Sweet Candy Cane out thoroughly for any cracks,nicks,scratches or any sign of damage. If you find there is some sign of damage it is best to toss the toy or use it for decoration if possible.

If you aren't into using glass but you are looking for different ideas for Boudoir photos this could be a great prop for Christmas photos for your sweetie.

Would I say that this is travel friendly, again like all my reviews depends on how you normally would travel if you are talking public transportation I wouldn't take this along. Traveling by car there wouldn't be a problem as your bags hopefully wouldn't be getting tossed around.

Material / Texture

What is it Made Of?
The Sweet Candy Cane made by SSA Glass is made out of Pyrex Glass which has a rating of 10 out of 10 on the Eden Material Safety Scale. So what does the safety rating mean for you, it means a lot especially if you share toys with partners or just amongst you own orifices an fear of contaminating your toys or yourself. I love that Pyrex Glass is a nonporous material so it doesn't hold your bodily secretions whether they are vaginal or anal secretions. This is a very solid dildo with no give at all to it so if you prefer your toys to have give to them I would steer clear of this because glass is unforgiving. Pyrex Glass is a nonporous material that is also Hypoallergenic,Latex Free,Phthalates Free and Food Grade Material so if you are worried about getting an allergic reaction to toys your best bet is to use glass.

Texture
My Sweet Candy Cane looks smooth but I can feel very little texture while running my hands over the glass. I feel little bit of texture which I would say is where the red swirl was added to give it the stripes. When you insert the Sweet Candy Cane it goes in smooth and you can't feel the little bit of texture that you can when running your hands over the piece which is a plus for those who don't like texture. Personally, I believe that with the texture or lack there of this could be enjoyed by those who have never used glass right up to those who own every glass piece known to man. I have many glass pieces and I believe this is one of only two pieces I have that is texture free, it is always good to change things up every now and again right?!

Taste/Smell
I didn't taste this as I have no reason to put a glass dildo in my mouth but I can assure you that since it is glass it has no taste. There was absolutely no smell present either of course I am not sure what glass would smell like if it even had a smell. The storage pouch that came with the Sweet Candy Cane also had no smell present upon receiving it.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Do I like the design? Well of course I do I have been longing after this piece for a good while and wouldn't have bought it if I didn't like the design. I love how creative manufactures get when it comes to glass pieces as it seems ideas are endless. By no means is this a realistic looking dildo so you are safe on trying to explain it if someone asks you what it is. Honestly, it doesn't scream sex toy to me just looks like something that could be a decoration.

The Sweet Candy Cane it shapes like well a candy cane just on a larger scale. I liked the way the shape worked for me I only used the bottom straight portion though so I can't vouch for how the curve handle part feels as that is insertable as well.


Size it Up
For me the diameter was perfect as I don't like majorly thick toys even though I have used them before. I believe that this is a perfect size for those who are just starting out with toys especially glass since you don't want to start with something super huge. This is not an intimidating piece by any means.
Length:7 1/2 inches
Insertable Length6 inches
Circumference3 1/4 inches
Diameter1 inch
Weight13 oz

Performance

The Sweet Candy Cane performed pretty well for your basic dildo, I was laying in bed and wanted something in me so I grabbed the first glass piece out of my drawer. I didn't need any type of lube since the glass is smooth so it slides in really easily even if you aren't fully worked up on your own. I mainly used it to tighten my pelvic muscles around it with a few thrusts here and there. There is not any vibration to this so with just doing what I did with it alone I achieved what I wanted to feel something in me to tighten my muscles around.

For a basic dildo if you don't like vibrations this would be great for you! I normally pair my dildos with a clit vibe to make the experience mind blowing. With no motor attached you could say this is a very discreet silent toy so you won't have to worry about people knowing what you are doing while its in use.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Scrub A Dub Dub
The Sweet Candy Cane dildo is easy to care for especially when it comes to cleaning it. There are a few ways that you can clean glass toys which I love.

**Ways to Clean**
1.)Simple toy cleaner spray it down let it set for 30 seconds and wipe down with a lint free soft cloth to avoid scratching the glass.
2.)Toy wipes
3.)10% bleach solution let your toy set for a few minutes in the bleach and water solution then rinse thoroughly and either wipe dry with soft lint free cloth or lay flat on a towel to air dry.
4.)Boil it, you can boil your Candy Cane, if you choose this route make sure that you have silicone tipped tongs so your dildo doesn't slip and fall upon removal from the pot. Lay flat on a towel to cool and dry
4.)Toss it in the top rack of the dishwasher




Storing Your Sweet Candy Cane
You will receive a non-padded toy pouch with your Sweet Candy Cane that you can use for storage but you will have to be careful how you go about storing it in your toy box. If you are worried that the pouch that accompanies your Sweet Candy Cane isn't going to be enough you can keep the bubble wrap that it comes wrapped in or you can purchase padded pouches from Eden.

Compatibility With Lubes
Since glass is a solid material and nonporous you can use any lube you wish from your favorite water base to that silicone lube you don't get to use often if you own mostly silicone toys like myself. If you are a lover of oil base lubes you are welcome to use those on this sweet baby as well. I personally didn't use bottled lube with this piece myself, I used my own natural lubrication since there was no texture and the girth is pretty slim on this.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

There is vary minimal packaging when it comes to the Sweet Candy Cane, like with all the other SSA Glass pieces I get this baby came tucked away in the little red storage pouch. Upon opening the pouch I pulled out bubble wrap and the candy cane there was nothing else inside the pouch. As I have noticed, with all the SSA Glass purchases I have made they don't include care instructions. I believe that all companies should include some type of instructions or information about the toy even if it is a simple item. While somethings don't take Rocket Science to figure out there should be a caution flyer about how to heat up and cool down your glass for those who are new to using glass.

Can the packaging be used for gift giving? Well it could be if you wrap it up in a nice box or put it in a gift bag with pretty tissue paper. The packaging as you can tell is pretty simple and discreet.

Personal comments

Size comparison to other glass pieces I own by SSA Glass


Comparison

Experience

Since I didn't really put this to its full intended use I will say that I did enjoy feeling it inside of me while I tightened up my pelvic muscles. I haven't used this with my partner but I am sure we will use it together in the future since he likes using toys on me.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this dildo even though I don't use it much. If you are into anal play this is a great toy that you can use with no texture, it also is anal safe because of the hook of the candy cane. I used mine for vaginal play an while it is on the slender side of things it worked great.
