Emerald explorer - glass probe by EdenFantasys - review by Tori Rebel

Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

I'm starting to think that the Emerald Explorer was the real treasure at the end of the yellow brick road and that Dorothy and her little dog just didn't want us to know it so they wouldn't have to share. This toy is so multifunctional and beautifully crafted that neither my partner or myself has a complaint about it at all - it is OUR perfect toy and I would recommend it to anyone.
Glass, comes with pouch, can be sanitized, holds temperature well.
Ring at end of straight shaft can be tricky to use in certain positions when solo.

extremely useful review
The Emerald Explorer arrived at my door wrapped in its very own purple and pink drawstring padded pouch inside a plastic bag. No instructions are included but since it's a glass probe with a very safe handle, your imagination is really the only limit on this one. And my first impression was that aside from being a nice weight and having an amazingly sleek finish, this toy is flat out gorgeous.

The toy measures in at 6-1/2" overall with 4-1/2" being insertable. It is just under 1-1/4" across although the 2nd bubble down is just a bit larger than the rest and does come in at 1-1/4". The top bulb is also slightly tapered making it a little easier to insert. There are 5 bulbous little rounds of glass in total, all in a perfectly straight line followed by a 2" ring that makes a perfect handle even for those with larger hands, and an excellent safety stop for anal penetration.

The size makes it perfect for vaginal penetration in my book - because as it is on the slender side, it is also rigid, and I don't like my girthy toys to be the ones with no give. I think the length is also good for vaginal penetration, as something longer and made of glass could cause a little bruising or pain if the play gets rough. For anal, it may be again be too small for those that really enjoy a more fulfilling experience but should be suitable for most. The rigidity comes into play here as well. One of the best design features of this toy is that it is evenly weighted throughout. This makes it not only easy to hold and use steadily but it simply feels good.

Like I said before, the only limit on this toy is the limit of your imagination. It is crafted as an anal probe, but can also be used on the vagina, or even lubed up and run against the clitoris because of the texture. We have found that it will not stay in on its own like a plug when used anally but is an amazing thrusting toy, again anally or vaginally (no anal to vaginal without cleaning though!). The glass is perfectly smooth so it has very little drag against the skin, even without lube. However, whenever we use it for anal play, and sometimes for vaginal play, we lube it up. The Pyrex glass is incredibly versatile though and can be used with any silicone, water, or oil based lubricant you want. The toy has never had any smell or taste whatsoever so it's not an issue for those that are bothered by that either.

Another great feature of the Pyrex glass is its ability to hold temperatures. If you enjoy cold temperatures, it's easy to either refrigerate or dip into ice water to cool it down or run it under warm water to bring it up in temperature. The glass will also come to body temperature quickly and will hold a temperature longer than any other toy material I've found with the exception of metal.

The list of whom this toy would be great for is so long that I'm simply going to list who it might NOT work for. If you don't enjoy either your ass or vagina penetrated and also would not want to use the texture of this toy against your clitoris, it's probably not for you. In addition, those that are starting with super slim toys for penetration that haven't worked up to this width (although this is still fairly slender) yet might want to wait. But when you do get there - give this one a shot! This might also be a good foray into glass for those that haven't tried it just yet.

There are no electrical components to this toy so it makes no noise at all, and it's small enough that it can be tossed in a suitcase or overnight bag easily, making it both travel friendly and fairly discreet.

Pyrex glass is completely nonporous so it is easy to clean and can be sanitized so if you're using it for either anal or vaginal only, or use it with a condom, soap and water should do just fine. For those that would like to share the toy without a condom, it can be boiled, put in the dishwasher, or cleaned with a bleach solution. I use a nail brush to ensure I get into the crevices between the bulbs just to be super safe. This can then be dried with any towel or paper towel and stored in its padded pouch.
This toy was initially requested so that we could use it as a warm up toy for my boyfriend before we switched up to his much larger glass p-spot plug. And while it does an amazing job at that, it has become so much more. It has become his favorite toy for anal thrusting (alone or while receiving oral), but more than that it's become one of my favorite toys as well.

Since it is able to be boiled to sanitize, we do so, and then use it as a vaginal toy next time around. For those that might still be leery of using any toy, glass or not, as a shared toy, you can always cover it with a condom for anal or vagina play as well. The bubble shapes along this toy feel amazing when passing through the nerves at the opening of the vagina. I haven't gotten any real g-spot stimulation from it yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if I found a way to make it work for that as well.

Since the toy is perfectly straight and rigid and the glass handle is at the bottom, it can be tricky to use for penetration on yourself from certain positions, but the same design aspect makes it perfectly user friendly for using on a partner.

It really is a multitasker for us and we could not possibly be happier with it.
Follow-up commentary
We still love this toy. It is absolutely perfect for warm up for larger toys, or on its own if he's not in the mood for anything larger. We still haven't been able to use it as a plug since it won't stay in on its own, but it brings so much pleasure when used as a probe that I'm completely happy with it.
