Art Meets Function

This item represents a great value. It is inexpensive, and will last forever. It is simple, beautiful, and big enough to please people of most skill levels.

I highly recommend it.
Durable, good size, filling, simple, and clean.
The shortness of the bulb portion makes it a bit hard for beginners to get in.

useful review


Glass is my best friend.

Because of it's wonderful properties, not only does this plug fill you, but it can be chilled or warmed as well as transfer vibrations from touching or attaching other toys to it.

Most of the time I use it as a standard plug, but because it is glass, I can spice it up by placing it in cold or warm water to alter the experience dramatically. If you've never added temperature to your pleasure, I highly recommend it!

It also transfers vibration very well, so I occasionally either sit on a vibrating bullet or other vibrating toys to take it a step further.

Material / Texture

As mentioned, this toy is made of glass. To begin, the toy is beautiful to look at, much like a piece of art you might place on an end table.

The glass feels great because it is very smooth and very hard. However, because it is so hard, you may find it feels a bit larger than a similar toy made of softer materials when putting it in. It does not flex or give, so it always maintains it's size which to me is preferable, but for beginners may be more painful or difficult to insert.

The best feature of glass for me is that it's very durable. You don't have to worry about this toy falling apart with time. It will truly last forever.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design is simple but elegant. The colors swirl within the glass, yet there is still some clear areas that allow light to penetrate allowing the colors to be illuminated.

The size is what I would consider my "go to" size, but this may be a little large for a beginner. The shortness of the bulb end also can make easing into this plug a little difficult for a beginner.

The bottom flare is substantial enough that you never have to worry about it popping in our out once it's in, which is very important to me in a plug. It is also not so large that it makes it uncomfortable for sitting on, which is also important for me.

Ultimately, I find it to be just the right size for standard play, which means that it gets used more often than any other toy I own. I enjoy the filling feeling, but it doesn't take a lot of extra time and effort to use or work in.
    • Whimsical / artistic


This toys performs exactly how I would want, and that's why it is my most used toy. Its simple design and shape allows it to be a very standard part of any play time, but its material allows it to be augmented to keep it from becoming boring.

The best part of this toy is that it's big enough that you always feel it, which adds a layer of extra pleasure, but does not require a lot of effort to use. I don't have to spend an extra 5-10 minutes using other toys to work my way up to it. It's also simple and does not require any batteries to get full enjoyment.

The downside is that sometimes I feel it's not quite big enough for someone who is experienced with anal play, but a bit too big for someone who is a beginner.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The toy is made of glass which is one of the safest you can own. It can be washed with warm water and antibacterial soap, a 10% bleach solution, be washed on the top rack of the dish washer with no soap, or even boiled for three minutes.

It can be used with any lubrication and is very durable, so it will last a long time no matter how it is stored.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy was packaged well, and because there is not a lot to the toy from a complexity standpoint it doesn't require any extensive instructions.

Personal comments

I have been using this product with regularity for over 2 years now and it still is my most used toy. I can use it by myself or with a partner with little prep time or work after.

The fact that it is glass means you will be able to use the toy forever, and while other toys may fall apart and have to be replaced, this guy will be around whenever you need.

To me it represents a great investment. Over the long run, it will be by far the least expensive toy because of its durability.

I highly recommend this be part of everyone's toy collection.

    Nice first review, but it did leave me with a few questions.

    How long and wide is this toy? Did it come with any sort of storage bag?

    Have you considered becoming a student of one of our many mentors? They will help teach you how to write a clear and informative review!

    Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!

    Very nice review! I have the same questions as Pixel, though. You're off to a great start -- keep up the good work!

    Not a bad first review, welcome to EF.

    If you like this and want to move up a bit, try the large.
  • namelesschaos
    Good first review welcome to Eden.
  • flyingcircusman
    Thank you for all the comments. I look forward to continuing to try new things and to try my best to give a full unbiased review.

    As far as size, I was under the impression that giving the sizing specifics wasn't necessary because it's all part of the details of the product. Also because I purchased this item 2 years ago I do not remember the packaging very well. I do know there was no storage bag though .

    I'll look into the mentoring thing. Thank you for the info Pixel!

    I've thought about the large a few times, but I think I'd want to grab one with a longer bulb. Any suggestions?

    This is absolutely wonderful for a first time reviewer! I am impressed! This toy does look awful for beginners. I have a very similar plug. Being intermediate, it's still hard for me to use. I am kind of backing off from anal toys for a while.
  • flyingcircusman
    Thank you for the kind words SecretToyLover.

    Might I suggest however not to give up on anal toys? I think you should just avoid hard materials and look for plugs that are a little longer but still have similar girth. Anal play is really something that has to be worked at unfortunately. Its a bit of a labor of love I find.
