The Shape of Water
If not lubed enough or used in a position where gravity is against you, it may be a workout to use it, which can be a pro or a con. If you are keeping toys together, make sure to put it away in a pouch each time or it may clink, or worse, drop and scratch the next time you go to get it.
Smooth, yet textured; Great for shower; Environmentally friendly
Heavy; May clink/make a sound when moved
Wow... I knew from the moment I saw this toy that it was going to be a favorite—if not for its performance, then at least for how stunning it looks! It is very hard to find a realistic glass dildo, and this is about as realistic as it gets! For such a modest price tag, too, I was teeming with excitement to buy it and test it out. I waited about a week to receive it, and I was blown away! It was the perfect size for me, about the girth and length of an average man, but rock solid and crystal clear. I've heard it may be too small for some people, so if you think that might be the case, I'd recommend that you look at Casper or the Ultimate Satisfier to get the job done! Just be aware that with solid glass, you'll be getting a solid workout too.
I decided to go with this one rather than Casper because I didn't want to risk getting something so big I would never use it, and I loved the sculpted balls. They might not be the most realistic, but they are nice to hold onto, and, I think, make it stand up with much more ease if you want to use it in the shower and need to set it down for a moment without wanting to worry about the shaft or head touching the possibly icky tile floor.
I did end up having a few small issues with the glass since these are all handmade, and after contacting Eden about it, they sent me a replacement the same day for no extra cost! If you're worried about the handmade aspect of the toy, or that the glass may be damaged in shipping, don't! I've never had a problem with getting an order fixed when shopping on Eden, and even though this toy is made from glass, the likelihood of it breaking is very low and pretty much impossible while it's being used. Even a couple of good whacks on the floor wouldn't do much to this thing.
This toy is SOLID GLASS. This means that it is not only heavy, but it does not give at all either! This may be a con to some, but for someone who likes rough stimulation or to bend their toys to a particular angle such as I do, this may be just perfect! It is very realistic in that it has very little curvature to it, making G or P-spot play a bit more challenging for beginners (if this sounds like you, Casper might be better with his gentle upwards curve). I found that having never used a toy specifically bent to accommodate to my body, it still did amazing at reaching all the right spots. The heavy veining on the top and bottom of the shaft ensures that, even if it is hard to find the perfect spot, it will still get a decent amount of stimulation. The veins are actually my favorite part of this toy. While many glass toys are quite smooth, the irregular pattern of the veins gives it natural friction that makes it feel more like a silicone toy while it's inside of you, albeit, very hard silicone. For someone looking for a toy with less texture/friction, I would recommend a less realistic toy with only a few bumps or swirls.
When I got it, I was a little intimidated. Not by the size, which was just exactly what I had hoped for, but for how well I'd be able to use it. I hadn't had a lot of good experiences with penetration, and it hurt a lot to have sex, but after I got settled in the shower and used this with just a dab of coconut oil, it went right in! It truly felt a bit odd at first since it glided in with much less control than a conventional dildo because it was so smooth, but I quickly got used to it, and it felt amazing. The next time I used it, also in the shower, I didn't need any lube at all! I have not yet experimented with it anally, but it is so tempting that I predict I will be doing so very soon.
The best thing about the material, I should mention, is that, along with going in easy with little or no lube, if lube is required, you can use any that you'd like. Oils, water-based, silicone-based, egg whites, or whatever crazy thing you'd like, just please be sure that whatever you use is safe for your body, and it will certainly be safe for your toy. Cleaning is super easy, it can be wiped off with a damp towel after it has been freshly used because it is glass, but for a more thorough clean, it can be boiled, put in the dishwasher, bleached, soaked, etc. And, if things start to get boring, you can heat or cool it. One of my favorite things to do is to heat it up with some very warm water and rub ice cubes on my partner, so when he enters me, it's even more intense. This can also be done with a chilled toy and some hot towels to heat him up.
This toy is so realistic that I get excited just to see it. I love everything about it from the size to the hard raised ridges of the veins. It has a bulbous head that leads to a slightly thinner shaft, which gets a bit thinner at the hilt, but not overly so, before ending with the base, which is a molded set of balls.
It can be hidden quite well if, say, your roommate walks in, and it is sitting on your bed (like me, as I took some of the pictures for this review), at least given that your bed is light in color. Given that this is glass, it reflects some light, and it might be obvious that it's there if it's sprawled out on a dark bedsheet. If you're curious, you can see the effect with a glass from your cabinet. Since it does have some texture on the shaft, it isn't very apparent that it is a dildo at first and may seem like a piece of cellophane from some sort of packaging, especially if the balls are hidden. At that point, it would probably be a good idea to cover it up before someone realizes what it truly is.
While I found it to be perfect in every way, it may be a bit small for more experienced individuals or those looking to stretch themselves to their limits.
All in all, it's a lovely toy, and great if you want something to last a lifetime. It is also environmentally friendly not only because of its longevity, but because it doesn't break down (or, not break down) in the way other toys might, will probably not be eaten by wildlife, and, if push comes to shove, can even be thrown away into the ocean where it won't cause any harm and eventually become granules of sand on the beach, or better yet, a very erotic piece of sea glass. Standard toys made from plastic or silicone don't break down the same way, and may either sit in a landfill, or if it also ends up in the ocean, breaks into colorful floating bits that may resemble food, or get sucked up while an animal is attempting to eat something else.
I often use this toy in the shower because I find that the water, mixed with my own juices, is enough lube to get this thing going. It doesn't need a whole lot to get it nice and slick, and the water itself actually works great to start it along. I love that I can run hot or cold water from it now and then to change the temperature before going at it again. It may be smooth, but it was textured enough to feel realistic, and helped me to find what positions I might enjoy with my partner to best hit all the right spots since this toy has a little curve, just like most people.
You can boil the toy, bleach it, throw it in the dishwasher, and more, to clean it. This toy also can take a lot of abuse (but why abuse it?). It can be dropped quite a bit, and I doubt I could ever get it to actually crack, but I suspect that if it were dropped or rubbed on something like coarse concrete that it would get a few scratches. I keep it only in its velvet pouch that it came in, and put it along with all my other glass toys (also in their own pouches, so they don't clink together or scratch each other)and it has done just fine. Any lube can be used and this toy can be used both vaginally or anally, giving it a lot of variety in how it can be used.
