Keepin' it Glassy

Despite having relatively weak vibrations, the sensory combinations Hope offers make the toy worth a try. Hot, cold, swirled, nubbed - a delightful step away from your traditional vibrator or glass dildo. If you're looking for a toy with intense vibrations, Hope may not suit your fancy, but if you're down for trying out some new textures for a nice sensory experience, by all means, indulge.
Body safe, quiet, waterproof, good for texture and temperature play
Weak vibrations, may be hard to clean

extremely useful review
Doc Johnson's Reflections Hope is a beautiful glass vibrator that would be suited for play by anyone looking to try something new or delve into the world of glass toys and/or different textures. It is a rich pink with swirls at the top and dark blue/purple nubs towards the base. It'll definitely give you a different experience!

Glass toys are 100% body safe and can be sterilized and used among partners if desired. Since it is also waterproof, Hope can be cleaned using soap and water or toy cleaner. I've found that you've got to be VERY thorough in cleaning this toy - given the different textures (nubs, swirls), it is easy for remnants of bodily fluid to collect/and or hide in the seams of the swirls in particular. The best way I've been able to overcome this is to use a hot washcloth with soap and use it between my fingernail and the toy so I can sort of scrape off the junk without getting it under my nails. After the toy dries completely, give it the once-over just to make sure it is, in fact, clean.

One of the best things about Hope is that it combines the benefits of a glass toy with different textures that offer new ways of stimulation. It can be used hot or cold - I prefer to let the toy sit in a glass of cold or warm water before play. (Don't use hot water, trust me - ouch!) I've never cooled or heated my glass toys in any other way as I feel this is the most practical. Typically glass dildos are more common than glass vibrators, so this is a great toy for someone who is experienced with traditional vibrators and looking for something new to try. When using Hope, I really don't feel the swirls towards the head of the toy, but the nubs at the base make for a wonderful sensation as it stimulates the vaginal opening during penetration. Even twirling it around instead of thrusting feels great.

The battery life in Hope seems to be decent and comparable to other toys. It runs on one AA battery. The biggest downside for this toy for me was the fact that there are only three levels of vibration and they aren't very strong. The vibrations are controlled by a click button on the bottom of the shaft: click once to turn on/lowest vibration, twice for medium vibration, three times for its highest vibration and a fourth click will turn the toy off completely. The vibrations can be felt, but I think the texture factor in this toy is stronger than the vibrations.

Follow-up commentary
Still not a huge fan of this toy. As a matter of fact, it's probably collecting dust by now, as I haven't used it since reviewing this product. I do love the look of the whole Reflections line, but Hope just wasn't the one for me.

    I'm so disappointed to hear that this toy has only one vroom! I love my Reflections: Joy and was planning on picking up the rest of the set. At least it's quiet. Thanks for sharing!
