Made of borosilicate glass, the Onyx Prostate Massager is nonporous, hypoallergenic, nontoxic, latex-free and phthalate-free. It has no smell or taste. Borosilicate glass is better known as Pyrex, the bakeware and dishes popular in kitchens the world over. As this toy is glass, it is firm and rigid, but no bend or flex. The surface is very smooth and it doesn't collect lint or hair. Because of the firmness of glass, it's important that you move slowly and listen to your body to prevent damage to sensitive tissues. There is no textural component to this toy aside from the two bulbs at the end, which allows for comfortable insertion and wear.
The ring handle is clear glass, but the rest of the toy is a very deep black colored glass, which you cannot see through at all. It gives the toy a very rich appearance, with a naughty element, and is sure to match love of lingerie.
Measuring at 6 1/2" in length and 1 1/4" at it's widest point, the Onyx falls somewhere in the intermediate category in terms of anal play. The insertable length falls roughly around 4 1/2". It isn't extremely wide, but isn't a beginner toy. Working up to the Onyx shouldn't be an issue for most anal players.
The bulbs measure 1 1/4" each, and they are fairly uniform. Your item may vary slightly, as is the case with glass toys. The gentle curve of the toy really helps to make it comfortable to use in various positions. When inserted anally, you can move around and change positions without feeling as though it's jabbing you internally.
For those that don't enjoy phallic looking anal toys, this is a great anal toy choice. It's beautiful, and functional, but it doesn't scream "phallus." That being said, if you left this out on your table or nightstand, people would certainly be able to guess what it was.
The ring handle is certainly wide enough to ensure that this toy isn't being pulled too far inward, and it's easy enough to use when maneuvering the toy. It wouldn't be comfortable for sitting or long term wear, as it does stick out a bit.
As glass has no flex or give, a warm-up is necessary for the Onyx for most, if not all, anal players. This toy doesn't allow for the most gradual insertion, as it starts out with the first bulb immediately. That bulb is tapered slightly, but not much. As it moves directly into another bulb with little to no space for rest, it's important to know your body and what you like in an anal toy before trying the Onyx.
Once you move past the two bulbs, the neck does taper and is very comfortable. If you enjoy just placing a plug and leaving it, after the rush of an initial penetration, the Onyx is great for that. If you can handle the Onyx's size, and like the intense massage that the two bulbs will provide when they are moved in and out or you clench your muscles around them, the Onyx is a great toy for you as well. There are many ways this one can be enjoyed, and it excels at each. It's simply a matter of knowing what you like before you purchase. If you need a gradual taper to insert a toy, or you like a bit of give with your anal toys, the Onyx isn't going to satisfy.
Cleaning the Onyx Prostate Massager is easy. You can wash it with soap and water, or you can use your favorite toy cleaner. It can be sterilized by placing it in boiling water for three minutes, or washing it in your dishwasher. Because it is a glass toy, you can use any lube you like.
The Onyx Prostate Massager comes wrapped in bubble wrap, within a plain red storage pouch, as you can see in the picture. For storage, be sure to avoid storing it up against other glass toys, or anywhere it might bang against anything which would break it. No instructions, care information or paperwork came with it. It is pretty self-explanatory.
This is a toy that can be sterilized between uses and shared between partners, male and female alike, which is a rare find in the sex toy world. If you have limited resources and want a toy that will do a lot of jobs well, this is a good choice.
