Every sex toy connoisseur should have a glass toy. If my video (see below) doesn't convince you, perhaps this review of my first glass toy, Blue G-Spot Pleasure Swirl
A lot of people love glass toys just because they're so pretty; there's a reason for the note on this one
that it won't stand up on it's own: because people love to display them like they're Chihulys. Mine reminds me how much I loved marbles when I was little, not to shoot, but to hold and inspect. I would project myself into those little spheres like they were snowglobes of other planets or little mermaid shelters. The weight of the glass and the colorful ribbons and swirls inside are so pleasurable to hold and peer into.
The sexiest reason to love glass toys is that they're HARD: when you're stimulating your g-spot or prostate, you want something firm with no give, and something that gives you enough leverage to put a high level of pressure on the right spot; this toy does that with the glass and a nice amount of length to get a good grip and really grind. I've found that it also helps to have a toy with a pronounced curve if you want to really work on your g-spot and unfortunately, my first glass toy doesn't have enough of an angle for me to say it's absolutely PERFECT for that task. I still made it work, of course, because I'm a pro (haha), but for vaginal penetration and g-spot stimulation, I think I'd prefer something like THIS (with full curve)
or this beauty
(in a delicious large).
Not only do those toys have more pronounced curves, they have bigger, more bulbous heads which I also prefer for working over my g-spot; it's not that I need or want a huge phallus (in my next toy review you'll see that just a little bit bigger can be TOO big) but I do like a little more popping action from a dildo when I'm masturbating and more surface area for stimulating my g-spot.
After trying it out on my pussy, I decided this toy is actually the perfect size for my ass. Here, let me show you:Video taken from webcam show archive, hence the low quality.
As many of you know, I'm not a big double penetration fanatic, but this dildo would be perfect for reaching around and sliding up my butt while Delia's
cock fucks my pussy; the shaft is long enough to not require too much contortion and the straightness of the toy means she'd probably be able to feel it really well while she's inside of me.
I feel compelled to mention some of the "boring", practical reasons people (especially women) love glass toys: they're non-porous, easy to thoroughly clean, great for people with allergies, shifty pH balances, or sensitivities to chemicals (which most cheap sex toys have), and they're compatible with all lubes (unlike many silicone toys which go gloopy if you use them with silicone lubes). Glass toys are on the expensive side, but they have a long life: they won't get discolored, they won't melt in the sun, they won't tear or get bent out of shape and I have never heard of anyone chipping, breaking or shattering a glass toy either; that is saying something since I'm in an industry where people share this kind of information and talk to each other about their favorite toys, their biggest toy failures, and their sex toy accidents. We really USE our toys often and put them through a lot of abuse -- we've all dropped toys during webcam shows and shoots so none of us want anything even remotely fragile. In fact, I know a couple of chicks with their own sites who use glass toys almost exclusively -- not just because they're pretty but because they prefer the way they feel and that they're made with a safe material that doesn't give them a chemical burn.
You might wonder why I haven't reviewed my first glass toy's efficacy for clitoral stimulation; that's because I mostly use vibrators when I masturbate my clit (which means the ENTIRE network of nerves; as you saw in the video I can put my magic wand above the head of my clit and get a trickle-down effect). If I weren't so lazy, though, I'd say a glass toy of any kind would be great all lubed up and stroking a clit, especially if you were watching yourself in a mirror (yes, I like watching myself, specifically my pussy, while I masturbate); if I still lived alone, I'm sure I'd do exactly that. I would hold the glass dildo by the shaft, aim the lube-heavy head downwards, placing it just above my clit, then I'd slide the head down over my clit and up, down and up, repeatedly. I think this would work especially well with legs closed, and in this case the smaller girth and less bulbous head would work perfectly nestled between chubby labia, sliding up and down over my clit. The smooth surface of the glass is great because there's no drag with lube and you can also heat and chill glass toys.
Long story short: I can't wait to add more glass to my toybox!
