Maybe a weird question about glass....

I've never used one.. and its probably silly of me to think this, but how safe is it? I mean, could it break (inside)? I talked with my boyfriend about this too and we both were wondering about that..

Is it 99th time with this question or are we already well into triple digits?

If you drop it, it can break. If you change its temperature quickly, it can break (some types like borosilicate are more resistant to that).

If it chips or has crack-lines in it don't use it. Even if it's a tiny chip in the part that doesn't touch you. One strike and the item has to be thrown out or relegated to decorative purposes.

That said I'm a huge klutz and my first glass dildo is still alive and well. Just a couple precautions:

1) read the instructions before attempting to boil, freeze it or put it in a dish-washer. Some toys can stand it, some can't.
2) be careful with temperature play - our bodies are easier to damage than the toys. Bowls (preferably plastic so you can chuck the toy in) of warm and cold water are the safest way to do it. Plus IMHO they are the most convenient.
3) Put a towel or a plastic bowl in the sink during washing. Soapy glass tends to have a mind of its own.
4) Invest in some padded bags or make your own. Never store uncovered glass dildos in a drawer where they can roll and bump against each other and avoid putting them directly on scratchy surfaces.

Most glass toys are "shatter proof" but I'd rather be safe than sorry. I have two glass toys and I'm planning on buying more. Wild Orchid posted a really smart list of tips. Use those, use caution and you should be fine.
