Emerald explorer - glass probe by EdenFantasys - review by Airen Wolf

Emerald City Key

For a nervous butt and a novice anal player this toy can be less intimidating and easier to work with than some of the other anal probes. The Emerald Explorer can also be used as a vaginal toy and it's pretty damn good! For $25 this is a great investment and will last a good long while with proper care.
Sturdy, beautiful pyrex glass, great bubble textures, nice flared base
Rigid glass can bruise

extremely useful review
The Emerald Explorer is yet another example of beautiful jewel tone glass by SSA Glass. It looks like a pacifier or an old fashioned key. A key to the Emerald City perhaps? Either way when held up to a light source this toy shines like the Emerald City was said to!

The Emerald Explorer isn't a huge toy but it is built for anal exploration just as the name suggests. The ring on the end of the toy is fully 2 inches wide which is more than enough flare to prevent all but the hungriest ass from sucking it totally inside. The ring is large enough to grab hold of even with lube slick fingers. The toy has five bubbles; the first bubble is a bit more elongated and smaller making insertion easier, the other four are the same size and slightly bigger than the first. None of them are particularly challenging for even this anal novice. Taken slowly enough you can easily feel each individual bubble 'pop' into place. This is a probe not a plug, the end ring is big and uncomfortable to sit on. With a total length of 6.5 inches and an insertable length of 4.5 inches it's a great handful and not intimidating like some other anal toys I have bought. It is pretty hefty in weight though which oddly enough makes it feel safer, I know it's odd but it feels like I can relax and not worry about ending up in the ER. Now I am not saying it's super heavy, it only weights in at 9 oz. so it's not going to cause you to need a wrist support or anything but it feels substantial.

Vaginally this toy is super fun. It's not too small and the bubbles can be easily felt if you thrust slowly. It doesn't have a 'g' spot curve and the bubbles aren't off set to achieve even a gentle curve but if your spot is not high maintenance and easily stimulated the Emerald Explorer can apply incredible pressure to it easily. It will cause some pain if you thrust too hard and have a shallow vaginal canal, remember this is only 4.5 inches insertable. It is, however, rigid glass so use care when thrusting. The end ring is large enough to slip a medium sized smooth vibrator to convert this toy into a lovely vibrating toy.

Since this is a glass toy you can use any lube you feel comfortable with, especially if you are using it anally and prefer a thicker lube. You won't need a ton of lube as this toy gets super slick, be careful handling the toy with lubed fingers while washing because of the slickness. This is a beautiful jewel tone green pyrex toy so it is actually very sturdy so it can take a bit of rough treatment. It also means that it will hold heat and cold superbly but please use caution and test the temperature on the inside of the elbow just to make sure you don't cause the wrong kind of pain! A warmed up probe can help relax the anal sphincter before insertion, plus it feels great.

Cleaning the Emerald Explorer is as simple as a hot water and mild soap wash or you can boil it, place it in the dishwasher without detergent, spray it with a 10% bleach and water solution, use a commercial toy spray or wipe. It's very easy to keep this pretty little piece of glass clean, all the angles are soft and don't collect lube or bodily fluids. As always using a condom or toy cover over the toy will make clean up even easier and make sharing the toy safe.
I am an anal novice and have a few issues with being able to avoid a certain nerve that causes me to jump and clench up. With this toy I was able to go slow enough for it to remain painless and actually feel good. I loved the gentle bubbles though I would have liked a few spaces between the bubbles to sort of rest.

I tried to interest either guy in trying this out as a prostate stimulator but they weren't interested. This doesn't have a curve or area that would stimulate the prostate but since it does a pretty good job of stimulating the 'G' spot I think it could work just fine as long as your 'P' spot is easy to find and manipulate.
Follow-up commentary
Ok I still LOVE this monster! It's big, green, glass, has a great handle, and is perfect for prostate massage, anal play and vaginal play! What's not to love??
The Emerald is still as lovely as when I bought it and despite being dropped several times has developed no cracks, inclusions or chips.
