Acrylic Anal Love

The Crystal Anos would be an excellent addition to anyone's collection. With a built-to-last body safe material, and a long beaded shaft this one will bring orgasms for years to come. It really stars anally, the sensations that it brings from slipping each ball in and out are absolutely breathtaking. I can't wait to use this one over, and over, and over again.
Durable material, Can be used anally or vaginally, stimulating beaded texture, non-porous
Long length can be intimidating, didn't care for packaging
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This toy can be used to stimulate the vagina or anus. Because of its long length and base, it's extremely unlikely for the toy to slip inside of the anal canal.

Since this is a very long and firm toy, I do take precautions with thrusting as not to cause injury. It's common sense, use what feels pleasurable, and stop if you feel any discomfort.

I love toys that can be used vaginally and anally. It's like getting two for the price of one! This probe is also gender friendly and couples friendly.

Since there's no batteries and no vibrations, it can be used anywhere without any fear of a noise level. You could also use this for water play, as water would not be damaging whatsoever.

As far as travel, you absolutely COULD travel with this toy. It's all a matter of your personal comfort level. Sure, at about ten inches long it might take a little more room in your suitcase..but that might not be a deal-breaker. Just depends on what you are OK with.

Material / Texture

Acrylic plastic is hard and smooth, and mimics glass. It's non-porous, and very firm. There is absolutely no give. This toy has no odors or taste.

The rigidity of the toy makes this easily inserted, it's not going to move around while you're trying to put it in.

The design of the toy is bulged, but the surface texture of the toy itself is smooth.

It's pretty much everything that you could expect from a glass toy, except that it's just not as heavy. It also doesn't do a whole lot for temperature play. You can warm or cool the toy slightly with hot or cold water, but it doesn't hold the temperature well.

Design / Shape / Size

The Crystal Anos probe is a series of 10 beads/balls of varying sizes perched atop a base. The balls start at about the size of a large marble. The largest is about the size of a golf ball.

The design to me is great, the beaded texture is like anal beads, while the strong and sturdy material erases any lingering worry of "Oh no, what if this breaks inside of me?"

Its design isn't realistic; however it is easily recognizable as a sex toy in my opinion. Combined with its size, I would not consider this discreet. Visually it does have a neat look to it and it adds a little of a sculptural and artistic vibe.

At about 10 inches, this one LOOKS intimidating at first, but you can use as much of the toy as you are comfortable with. Since the probe gets bigger gradually, it allows your body to adapt to it.

I wanted to add that I love the clarity and transparency of the toy. It's beautiful without color and really makes it look like glass.

What I love most about this toy is that it can be used anally and vaginally. When something is versatile, it really increases the appeal for me. I have so much fun using it for solo sessions or with a partner.

It's also great that the smooth surface works so well with lube. When you're using a sex toy for anal purposes, lube compatibility is a huge bonus. And since it's totally non-porous, a little lube really goes a long way.

The Crystal Anos isn't harness compatible, but it's a lot of fun for partner play.

I think the company did a fantastic job in the design. The size difference between the balls on the probe is subtle enough to make a totally comfortable experience, while being present enough to feel pleasantly fuller with each bit of insertion.

Care and Maintenance

I love how easy this toy is to care for. You can simply wash it with hot soapy water, or use toy spray or wipes. For sanitizing I would go with a 10% bleach solution. Acrylic toys cannot be boiled, and they are not dishwasher safe. While there aren't deep crevices on the toy, I do pay attention to clean carefully between each bulge.

It's compatible with water-based and silicone lubricant.

As far as storage, I'd put the Crystal Anos somewhere the surface wouldn't be likely to get scratched. It would be nice if it came with a simple storage pouch.
    • Easy to clean


The packaging is a downfall to this toy. The Crystal Anos comes packaged in a garish cardboard box adorned with a photograph of a thong wearing lady alongside of an image of the toy. The back of the cardboard box is another large sized image of the toy, boasting the toy's size in centimeters.

As if the explicit imagery wasn't enough of a giveaway that there was a sex toy inside, the sides of the box describe in eight different languages, that this is a "crystal-clear acrylic dildo to satisfy your anal lust fantasies."

The probe itself rests inside the box in a plastic tray.

There are no instructions enclosed but there is a small nonspecific paper congratulating you on the purchase of your sex toy.

To sum things up, the box is far from discreet. It's not suitable for storage. I threw mine away almost instantly.

Personal comments

Don't let the size of this one scare you off. Even beginners would be able to use a portion of the toy comfortably, and then there's the added advantage of having more to work with once your body accommodates. It really makes this suitable for everybody, whether beginner, intermediate or advanced.


I don't normally participate in masturbation with anal play. However, when this toy sat unused for a week, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I rubbed my clitoris and got myself going as I normally would. Then, I tried the toy first as a dildo vaginally. While it's a little less girthy than I prefer for vaginal use, the bulged texture proved for a unique and pleasurable experience.

It wasn't long before I decided that I wanted it in my ass. I lubricated the probe and myself with some water-based lube, and slowly started working the beads in. It felt better and more filling as I pushed the beads in one at a time, feeling my ass grip the bulges in the toy individually.

Once I actually started to thrust the toy in my ass, I knew it would be over soon. The sensations are absolutely amazing. I rubbed my clitoris and had a mind-boggling orgasm that made me moan out loud.

I have used this toy with my boyfriend, and it's really fun to have someone else do all the work, and just lay back and enjoy the pleasure. The long length makes it excellent for teasing, because you can use just a little at a time if you wish.

I also used it anally on my boyfriend, and he loved it. I can't speak for all men, but it definitely had him moaning.
Follow-up commentary
A really great, nicely made yet inexpensive toy that I still love. Perfect for spicing up anal play, although I've been using for vaginal pleasure more as of lately. I've also found that running the lubricated, textured shaft of the toy externally on my clitoris is amazing. So, this is one toy that still has me starry-eyed.
