Reflections serenity - double ended dildo by Doc Johnson - review by Emma (Girl With Fire)

Does anybody else find serenity a little .... boring?

I can find no specific flaws in the design of this toy. It just doesn't do it for me. I would recommend this dildo to somebody who is very sensitive, and does not enjoy a lot of texture. Conversely I would suggest another choice if you are looking for a higher degree of stimulation.
Safe material, G spot targeting, Two sizes, Multiple uses.

extremely useful review
The Reflections Serenity is my first glass dildo. When ordering it I had no idea what I was looking for or what to expect. I have always been curious about glass toys; they have so many good qualities and very few drawbacks.

Glass has the highest safety rating (10), Which means none of the harmful chemicals we all seem to be looking out for; also, virtually no chance of a bad reaction to the material. Tempered glass/Pyrex which is the glass used in toys, is stronger and more difficult to break than ordinary glass. On the off chance you get angry, and hurl it at a wall or something and it does break, it will not shatter, but break into large solid pieces. Glass is also fantastic for temperature play. It is waterproof, non porous and easy to clean with either soap and water, or toy cleaner. One of the other benefits of glass is that you do not need much lube, and if you are like me and not a huge fan of most lubes this is a definite bonus. Any lube at all will work with a glass toy, as none of them will harm or damage the material in any way. The possible drawbacks to glass are that it is very hard, and so when thrusting you must be more careful as you can actually injure yourself if you are overzealous. It is also heavy so if you do not like to play with anything weighty this is not what you want your toy made out of.

The Serenity came in a plastic package with no instruction or recommendations on use. There is a pretty decal on the box, this however is strictly aesthetic. There is some vague reference to use on the back: "two ended spherical form allows for "rolling" pleasure on one end, and smooth deep insertion on the other.". I for one found this to be a confusing statement. I do understand the concept of smooth deep insertion, but what does rolling refer to? I decided to find out.

Upon opening this toy I found it to be what I expected. A sturdy, well made, glass dildo; two smooth differently sized spheres on the ends of a smooth curved shaft. Though appealing to look at, I was not sure how I would feel about a toy like this. I generally like some texture to my toys but as this was my first glass dildo I thought I would go with something simple. The dildo is about 7 inches top to bottom, and is heavy for a toy. The two spherical ends were far more opposed in terms of size then I had expected. One was barely larger than the 1" shaft of the toy and seemed unimpressive, the other almost twice the size and slightly daunting.

The Curve in the shaft does help stimulate the G spot as advertised. As far as the rolling sensations are concerned, I imagine the box is referring to the sensation of the weighty larger head moving back and forth while thrusting.

The Serenity can also be used anally; though I would not suggest the larger of the two heads unless you are well experienced with anal play. The smaller head and 1" shaft are super smooth and therefor do not create too much stimulation. Due to the smooth and slippery nature of glass however, this is not a toy you can expect to stay put.

The Serenity is a toy that would work well in foreplay and temperature/sensory play, but is not enough on its own to get the job done. The Serenity can be used vaginally and anally, is waterproof and easy to clean. Can be used by a beginner or somebody with a lot of experience; and can be used with the addition of clitoral stimulators.
I have played with this dildo for nearly a week in every way I could think of and am still unimpressed. Though the curve in the shaft does aid in targeting the G spot, I did not find that either head of the dildo gave me the level of stimulation I was looking for. I did climax after several failed attempts, but only with the addition of visual or clitoral stimulation. I found that the smaller head left me wanting, where the larger head was big enough to make me feel full, but restrict free movement once inserted. I expected that with a hard material like glass, and a shape that gave me something to hold onto, I would have a large degree of control over this toy, however, I do believe that the Serenity could be quite satisfying in combination with a vibrating cock ring, or anything adding sufficient clitoral stimulation.
Follow-up commentary
While I am still not in love with this one, I have definitely started to like it more. I found that contrary to my expectations I prefer the use of the smaller end of this one. I have greater control while targeting my G-spot and as a result I am more likely to have success giving myself back to back orgasms with this toy. I do like the full feeling that I get from the larger head, but I find that it is too large for any real movement, I can rock it a little bit, but thrusting is practically out of the question. While this is not one of my favorite toys, I still like it and wont be giving it up any time soon.
