Love Me

The Red Sweetheart by Don Wands is a beautifully made, versatile glass dildo. It contains some light texture from the slightly raised red hearts and the pronounced head will give you that popping sensation while in use. Having a flared base makes this a great toy for anal use and harness compatibility so the possibilities for play with it are endless!

extremely useful review


The Red Sweetheart by Don Wands is a beautifully crafted glass dildo that has been designed to be used internally to stimulate yourself or a partner. Since this particular dildo has a flared base, it makes this a great one to use anally or with a harness (and caution of course!). Men and women will both enjoy the sensations from this dildo and its raised hearts texture.

The size of this dildo is in no way intimidating and makes this a great option for beginners who would like to try out some light textured glass. As a beginner to penetration this toy may be too much to handle but just being a beginner to glass toys wouldn't be a big deal. Size queens will definitely want to look elsewhere for their kicks since this dildo just isn't all that large in circumference.

Being able to hit your g-spot with this dildo is a possibility and the same goes for the men trying to stimulate their p-spot, but obviously this won't work out well for everyone since it isn't actually curved with the g-spot in mind.

Using the Red Sweetheart with a partner, whether for foreplay or during sex, is definitely possible but be sure to exercise some caution while thrusting with it since it's a very rigid toy. Solo play can be just as fun with this dildo, especially if you enjoy bath time or shower play with your toys. Just lubricate it and go to town! If you want to add some temperature play with your Red Sweetheart just soak it in some warm water or ice water for a while before using it.

Material / Texture

The Red Sweetheart is made from tempered glass, or Pyrex, and that gives it a 10 out of 10 on the Eden materials safety scale. This means that tempered glass is food-grade material, non-porous, latex-free, phthalates-free and hypo-allergenic. This particular glass is shiny and clear with raised shiny red hearts on the shaft, all of which are smooth and have no odor to them.

Using lubricant with glass is usually a necessity for most folks but all lubricants are compatible with glass so just pick your favorite. Be sure not to use too much though, glass typically gets very slippery when lubricated and you wouldn't want to drop this on the floor or any other hard surface. You don't have to worry about this dildo chipping if it does get dropped, tempered glass is designed to break up into larger chunks instead of shattering like regular glass.

Design / Shape / Size

The Red Sweetheart is a very traditional styled dildo in that it has a straight shaft and a pronounced head that comes to a slight point or cone shape. It is about 8" in overall length with an insertable length of about 7 1/2" and it has a circumference of 5". The pronounced head has a diameter of 1 1/2" and the shaft is only about 1" in diameter. The base is just a little over 1 1/2" in diameter and it can be used as a "view hole" while inserted if that's something you're into.

The shaft of this dildo contains raised red hearts all around it that add a nice bit of texture to the otherwise totally smooth glass. They can definitely be felt during use but they aren't raised enough to make it too much for those who aren't used to textured toys. The pronounced head on this dildo is totally smooth glass and the conical shape aids in easy insertion and lends a popping sensation while in use.

There are no gaps or seams on this dildo and there weren't any cracks or chips either upon closer inspection.

The versatility of glass is astounding and this dildo is no different. You can use it anally or vaginally and possibly have it hit your g-/p-spot, you can use it during foreplay or sex with a partner, you can strap it on with a harness and please your partner that way, it can be used in the bath tub or shower and temperature play is a possibility since glass tends to hold temperatures very well.

Always use caution when thrusting with rigid toys and use enough lubricant to make them glide along smoothly. With this particular dildo using a small amount of lubricant is all you'll need so you don't end up dropping it on the floor.

The red hearts can be felt when inserted and they lend to some great sensations while the dildo is thrusted back and forth. This may not be a feeling that is for everyone but it does feel great just rubbed around externally as well so it wouldn't be a total loss if you didn't like the texture.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning is simple with the Red Sweetheart because it's waterproof and it can be totally submerged. Just wash it with warm water and antibacterial soap or toy cleaner. It can also be wiped down with toy and body wipes, isopropyl alcohol or a 10% bleach solution. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly afterwards to avoid introducing harsh chemicals in sensitive body areas. This dildo can also be sterilized by boiling it for a few minutes or putting it in the top rack of the dishwasher without detergent.

Don Wands makes storing this dildo easy by sending a drawstring closing, padded storage pouch in the packaging. Just slip the glass dildo into the pouch and pull the drawstring tight to close it. After that you can store it wherever you keep your other toys.

The Red Sweetheart came packaged inside a plastic clamshell that clearly showed the toy in front of the pink storage pouch. It had some information about the toy on the front and back and also had the Don Wands logo on it. It was very minimal packaging but it didn't matter because they sent along the nice storage pouch to keep the dildo in. (I recycled the clamshell already so there won't be any packaging photos.)

There weren't any instructions or booklets included with the toy but it's pretty self explanatory. The packaging makes terrible storage and it isn't discreet at all so wrapping before gifting it to someone will probably be necessary.

I actually received this from a good friend this past Christmas and was super excited to try it out. I love glass and texture so both together are like heaven for me. I wasn't disappointed with the Red Sweetheart at all, in fact it is probably one of my new favorites. I wasn't able to stimulate my g-spot with this toy but the texture did feel great in use. Had it been curved I do believe it would have rubbed on my g-spot just as well as my Pure Wand because it has the pronounced conical shaped head on it.

Personally I haven't tried this one anally yet so I don't have any comments on that but I imagine it would feel pretty awesome if you're into texture for anal toys.
Follow-up commentary
This cute dildo is still a favorite and holds a place in our toy box. There aren't any cracks or chips in the toy but always check your glass before use!
