Lattachino? Isn't that a type of coffee?

This nice, double ended offering from Phallix is a stimulating toy crafted using the Lattachino style of glass making. The blue Lattachino work only is found on the first section of texture but the color carries through the shaft when held in the right way. A modest diameter and very nice length is perfect for those that like hard texture in their toys. The ball shaped handle is nice for gripping and makes it safe for anal use, if you can get it in that far.
Finely crafted, flawless, nice size, comes with pouch.
Pouch is not padded, packaging could be smaller, Nubs may be to much for some.

extremely useful review
To begin I would like to give you a bit of info on the meaning of Lattachino and how it is made. When I received this toy, I was in awe of the artisanship that Phallix put into this toy. The swirls in the rib that wraps around the end are just so beautiful to look at.

"Lattachino is literally a braid made with individual borosilicate rods of color. It is a centuries old Italian technique that Phallix currently uses in a variety of our products." (Taken from the Phallix web site)

I had to do a Google search to find out how to say Lattachino, in my search I found a great video on how this type of glass is made. If you like, you can check it out here, while he is making a tobacco pipe (Ya right), it still gives you an idea how they are made. To be honest with y'all, I want to take up glass making. I think it would be fun to make my own toys.

All right, onto the good stuff.

The Lattachino Swirl probe is a strait glass toy that can be stimulating in many ways; you can rub it on a clit or Vulva, you can use it vaginally, anally or just display it on your mantel. However you decide to use it the blue swirls and nubs and nice ball shaped handle can take you to La La Land with ease. Although if hard, heavy textures are not your thing, you might look at something else.

Here, see the Lattachino glasswork?
It is not really a braid but rather a twist in the blue glass. This is seamlessly molded and wrapped around the shaft four times, beauty eh? Behind the 1/8" tall wrap of Lattachino, you can see the 3/16" tall nubs; there are twelve in all, alternating around the shaft.

My Lattachino differs a bit in size from the product page; this is due to each piece being made by hand. So slight differences can and will happen. Mine came in at 7 1/2" long with 6 1/4" insertable, all the rest of the dimensions are 1/4" bigger. Not much but worth mentioning.

This probe is made from Pyrex Glass As such it is hard, has no give and will break into chunks if dropped on a hard surface, not shatter into a million pieces. It is totally body safe and you can use any lube you wish. I find that Silicone lube works best, even for butt play. You can warm it up or cool it down to enjoy some temp play as well. Just be sure that if you are going for warm it is not to warm, you do not want a burn in you pussy or ass.

Furthermore Glass can be cleaned in many ways; Toy cleaners, boiling, a 10% bleach solution or good old soap and water are all fine to use. If you plan to go from your ass to vagina, you should sanitize it first, we do not want any infections do we? I did not think so.

This piece of finely crafted art comes in a BIG clamshell type package, there is a small pamphlet with a blond bombshell on the front (Discreet? Hardly) and there are a few of the Phallix offerings inside. You will also find some care instructions. The probe and storage pouch are located down below.

It was so strange to have the post-lady come to my door with a big box; I was looking for a small box. Quite a waste of packaging in my eye's, plus the probe has to much room to move in. See how the probe is laying crooked? Thankfully, Eden packs the box real good.

Phallix was nice to include a storage pouch but there is no padding so you need to be careful when putting it away. I could do without the lace but it is a nice touch. There is a elastic draw string with a slide that has a clamp built in to hold it tight. When you take it out to use it, be sure to inspect for damage. If any is found it is best if you do not use it.
Here is the pouch;

The first two times I tried to use this probe, the nubs were not very nice to my ass. They are a bit to tall for my liking. So I had to settle for using the swirls or inserting it farther and just twisting the probe back and forth. This provided some nice added stimulation during masturbation but not what I had hoped for.

The next time I used it I made sure to warm up quite a bit using the Severin to stretch my ass. Then when I used the Lattachino, the nubs felt extremely nice gliding across my prostate. Plus I could thrust full length with no discomfort. This brought on quit a bit of pre-cum followed by a very nice orgasm.

Something else I would like to mention is that this probe, for some odd reason, found its way past the Rectosigmoid junction. ([]) I have never had a toy get past this spot, and it kind of caught me off guard. The feeling was not bad by any means but was strange. Thankfully the ball on the end was there to stop it from going in all the way. That is the main reason everyone says to only use a toy anally that has a good base. Take it from your buddy Dwtim, things can happen when you least expect it, so be careful! PLEASE.

I can only recommended this toy for those that like extreme texture, if you are not careful this can cause some pain. So please consider your likes when you are thinking about purchasing this toy.
Follow-up commentary
This one of my top three glass dildo's. The size is great and the textures are very stimulating, although, I like the swirls more than the nubs.

It still looks as good as the first day I got it. It has been dropped a few time (short distance) and even went through the testing with my Pleasure Pouch with not even a scratch.

Good quality toy that I highly recommend.
