A Phallic Work of Art

The Nubby Fat Head is a work of art worthy of placement on your mantel. While that's not practical it is saying a great deal about the craftmanship of the toy. Clear, smooth glass, essences with rich blues and greens provide a pallet meant for only one thing, pleasure. With it's smoothness, temperature hold, and beauty the Nubby Fat Head is sure to bring hours of pleasure that only glass can provide.
Smooth, studded, keeps temp for temperature play.
Gets a little hard to hold onto when slippery from lube.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


There really aren't enough artsy sex toys out there. I mean, let's face it, most sex toys range from dull to crazy in appearance. This is not to say that I frown on sex toys, I certainly don't, but sometimes I really crave a good work of art which can be fondled and provide me with pleasure. The Nubby Fat Head, by Don Wands is a perfect fit. Simply gorgeous in appearance and extraordinary in performance. The hard shaft provides intense vaginal stimulation. Recommended for those who want a lot of stimulation without all the hassle of bullets, switches, and batteries. My only words of concern lie in the material. This dildo is 100% glass, which means it does not have any give what so ever. With that being said, it is important to always start slow, never change positions while the toy is inserted, and be extremely careful with anal. The good news is, this toy has a flared base, but because there is an absence of give, I recommend that if you intend to use it anally, you start out very slow. Everyone is shaped differently, and you want to make sure you have a good fit. Also, be gentle when thrusting this toy. Since this toy is very hard it can bruise you, so always proceed with care.

Material / Texture

Aw, Pyrex glass. That same trusted glass mother used to bake her casseroles in is now ours to pleasure ourselves with. If you have ever cooked with Pyrex bake wear, you know that the glass is extremely strong and very smooth. The dildo is just that. The glass contains boron, sand, soda, and lime. Because of the cooling method, the glass is not allowed to crystallize, meaning that the product is solid and will not splinter if broken. In fact, this dildo is more likely to break in half or large pieces than shatter. This is an important safety feature when it comes to glass sex toys.

Many people, men and women alike, have developed sensitivities to the compounds used in sex toys. Luckily, Pyrex glass is hypoallergenic. That's right, for those of you who are irritated by jelly and rubber toys, this might be a good choice. Odorless and tasteless the Nubby Fat Head contains nothing more than glass. If, on the other hand you are allergic to boron, soda, lime, or other types of minerals, you might want to proceed with caution.

Design / Shape / Size

Most glass dildos are adorned with nubbs, ridges, swirls, and even jewels. The Nubby Fat Head is no different. The flared base is adorned with a dark blue spiral which should be unique for each toy. In other words, because of the toy's material and design process, no two toys are ever exactly alike. The shaft is studded with 22 raised nubs. Seven reside in the front, four on the front of either side, three in the back of either side, and finally one at the bottom of the back.

The base is flared and used either as a handle or a protective device during anal play. Using the base as a handle proves tricky when slippery. Since there is nothing but smooth texture on this toy, it takes a bit of effort to keep a good grip on it. Even so, once you have the hang of it, keeping your grip shouldn't be a problem. If it is, try covering the base with a washcloth for extra traction. Used as a flared base, the anal user should be safer from losing the toy inside of themselves. No one really wants to lose a sex toy inside of themselves, let alone one that is constructed out of glass. Just make sure that the base is large enough to serve its purposes. In my opinion, the base serves more as a grip handle than anything else.

The dildo is 6 3/4 inches long with an insertable length of 6 1/4 inches. This means that you can almost insert the entire toy, which is extremely sexy in my book. The diameter is 1 3/8 inches which means that the toy is a comfortable length and width. Not too small or skinny but not too large. Last but not least, this toy weighs a pound. Some beginners may feel that this type of weight is too extreme for them, and they may be right. For those who enjoy heavier toys, such as myself, the weight adds to the intensity of the sensation. All in all, the dildo is a perfect size for most people yet the weight may be something to think about.

Is this toy discreet? No. Would I display this toy proudly, yes, it's that beautiful. Is it safe for travel? I would not recommend it due to the toy's material and the roughness of travel.


This toy arrived during one of the coldest days of the season. Most of you reading this are probably hemmed in by the arctic weather effecting the United States. Luckily, because of the frostbitten chill, the toy came ready for temperature play. I just pulled it out of the box and it was chilly and ready for action. I couldn't wait to try it, so I just slipped it right in without any lube what so ever. The frosty glass slid in wonderfully without any friction and filled me with icy cold sensations. Later, I warmed the dildo up in a sink of warm (not hot) water and applied the sample of wet silicon lube. I soon found that I preferred warmth to cold. The warm glass heightened my sensitivity level while enveloping me in a sense of WOW! The flared head provides intense stimulation as do the many raised nubs. I found that twisting the toy was difficult due to slipperiness but it was no matter, the toy felt great with a little thrusting. The best position to use this toy in is the doggy style position. This allows the weight of the toy to really be felt. The only downside is that most people can't keep this position during solo play for long, but it's worth the extra effort. In a little while I was rewarded with a nice, satisfying orgasm. All throughout play, the toy retained its heat and never needed a reapplication of lube.

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is made of glass, it is both boilable and bleachable. That means that it can be sterilized, so it's perfect for sharing between sessions. To boil the toy, place the toy in a pot of cold water and put the heat on high. Boil for at least three minutes and remove the toy with tongs. DO NOT TOUCH WITH BARE HANDS! To bleach, use a 10% bleach solution, taking care not to spill any on your clothes and soak for at least 10 minutes. If you intend to share this toy during the same session, as always cover with a condom.

As with all toys, wash with soap and water or toy cleaner before and after each use. You can also place this toy on the top rack of the dishwasher and let modern convenience do it for you.

All lubes are compatible with this toy.


Once thing I really like about Don Wands is that they provide a lot of information with their toys. The toy comes in the normal, clear, clamshell container. On the back is a step by step care instruction sheet which encourages the user to clean the toy before and after each use, to store the toy in the pouch provided, an introduction to temperature play, and advice about types of lubes. Inside is yet another info sheet which provides information regarding hygiene of the toy, safety, and instructions on temperature play.

The provided pouch is a light blue, plush, drawstring purse which cushions the toy to protect it from nicks, scratches, and breaks. The toy should always be stored in the pouch to ensure that it does not break and that it does not break your other toys. This toy can be stored alone or with other toys in a toy chest or sock drawer.
Follow-up commentary
What can I say? The Nubby Fat Head is a toy that lasts and keeps looking like new. While I have to admit that it has a way of sliding out of the storage pouch and into my other toys, it resists scratching. The result, it still looks just like new! That doesn't happen often, but when it does I'm very pleased. A toy that gets five stars and lasts? Now that's something to highly recommend.
