Straight vs curved glass dildos

Contributor: ScottA ScottA
I'm reviewing a new glass dildo for EF (the Blue Rider link), and I like the head and the glass, but I don't like the straight shaft. A curved shaft is easier to insert (especially anally) and easier to use for directed stimulation (e.g. of the G-spot or prostate).

My question is this: what do people think of straight-shafted glass dildos vs. curved? What are the straight shafts good for that curved dildos are not?

Insightful topic debates on Glass dildo:

glass
what makes glass so specail?

Glass
I've never tried glass before. Are they good? It seems really hard and sterile. I mean, looks wise, they're amazing but performance?

Glass toys: Warm or cold?
Do you like using your glass toys when they're cold or when they're warmed up, or somewhere in between?

Can't get enough of glass!
I'm so glad I decided to try a glass dildo! It didn't take long to convince me after I tried it. I'm pretty sure it's my new favorite material. I just

I've noticed that many straight-shafted glass dildos or wands tend to have more texture (ridges, nubbies, etc) and/or shapes (bloops, bubbles, etc) than curved ones, which make them great for pinpoint stimulation of a different kind.

I do like curved toys more, as it's less 'involving' to find my g-spot, but I still enjoy straight shafts, because of the texture and/or shapes.

I like curved shafts the best. Unless the texture on a straight-shaft dildo is very stimulating, I'm not overly impressed with the non-curved ones. For in-n-out vaginal thrusting with a non-curved toy, I prefer materials other than glass...something with a drag on it or a thick girth. Glass is so smooth that without a curve it's just not that stimulating for me.

I prefer curved. SLIGHTLY curved. It helped navigate around painful contact points.

I prefer curved as the "angle" of penetration makes play easier on my wrists.

My wife prefers to have me 'drive' when it comes to dildos. The best ones are curved - almost all have some texture from swirls or bumps - but we have a couple smooth ones as well. link link link

However, we also have a couple straight ones like the Silenzio linkthat work quite well - for my wife she loves glass so much - it's hard to go wrong!

Get more than one - they are all good

I like curved glass toys for g-spot stimulation, most of them tend to be smooth as well. However, I also like straight glass toys and because the ones I own are textured they provide a lot of stimulation.

I have a couple. There's one that was sent for review that's nice, long, has a good head and a bit of texture, but I find myself wishing it was a little curved.

I prefer a curve as well.

Curved is better in my opinion. They're easier to use plus when you use them on a bed you won't be as likely to keep hitting the bed with it on the outstroke. With a straight toy I find that I have to keep scooting down which I don't like.

A curved toy makes it easier to apply as much pressure as you want to your G-spot.

For me I like the curved better but enjoy both. When the wife uses one on me she has a hard time with strait, just doesn't like to go in for her. It has never been uncomfortable for me so I am not sure were the problem is.

The only thing about most curved that I don't like is they tend to turn and most have no indicator so you can feel the top of the toy with your hand. This is a very small problem as harder toys are easier to feel while they are inside.

I only own a glass plug but if I could have a dildo, I don't think it matters that much to me, depends on my mood. Though curved is always a plus for the gspot stim.

Oh, curved, definitely. I just reviewed the 19, which is my first straight dildo, and I found the straightness rather awkward.

I guess it does make it a little easier if you just want it for thrusting, but for anything else, it can get difficult.

As usual, I'm in agreeance with you ScottA. We've tried both curved and straight dildos (glass and otherwise), and both of us prefer the a nice curve to the shaft. In fact, the curve is something that we specifically look for when purchasing toys.
