Ultimate Glass Dildo Guide: Five Best for 2017-2018

Glass dildos are becoming something more women want to experiment with. I fully believe any exploration is worth while to find out what is the best method to get you to that euphoric state. I’m here to shed some light when it comes to what to look for when buying a glass toy.

I find a lot of women are curious but very cautious as well when it comes to trying something new, especially glass. I understand why you may feel apprehensions, but let me reassure you there is nothing to worry about.

The main thing to look for are specific qualities in the glass, as well as reading reviews before buying. Everyone is different and what works for some people may not work for you, that is true, but if there are a lot of people saying something works for them, it might just be worth the shot.

Glass Intro 101

Most glass dildos are made of borosilicate glass, pyrex (another name for borosilicate), or pure molten crystal glass, very hypoallergenic, and extremely strong. These specific types of glass consist of silica and boron trioxide which work as the main glass-forming elements. Borosilicate and pure molten crystal glasses are known for being heavy duty – they are resistant to strains or stress in the glass that in most cases would be how cracks and breakage occur in more common glasses.

Depending on the brand you go for (I suggest Joyful Pleasures, or Spartacus – but there are a ton of great options) they will be hand blown, one of a kind, pieces of art.

There are a lot of benefits of going with a glass option. Not only is it much more sanitary, and easier to clean, but you can use it different ways that you normally wouldn’t be able to with your rubber dongs or vibrators.

You can use them for either vaginal use or anal use. If you are using it for anal use you must make sure the stopper is big enough or you will be making an emergency room visit to get it retrieved from your rear. Yes, it can happen, but as long as the base is large enough you won’t have to worry about getting it lost.

Benefits

If you are using it for vaginal use, it works great for the fact you can use whatever lubricant you want. Normally with vibrators, and rubber toys, you want to use a water-based lube – silicone will eat away at the toys, and ruin them. With glass you can use whatever lubricant you want to use without having to worry about the repercussions of anything happening to it like melting material or anything falling apart.

Also look into a toy that has more of a curve to it so that it hits the g-spot. You will find a lot of glass dildos will have two different textures to them on the top and bottom. These ones you can use either way and get a different feeling from just turning it around.

Some like more texture on their toys (bumps, veins, swirly textures on the outside) saying it gives them a different sensation – other women just like their toys to have more of a flat seamless surface that is textureless. I would look into trying different shapes,sizes, and textures to see which one you like better!

Can harder be better?

When it comes to glass toys, it is all about personal preference (much like everything that has to do with sex). One of the reasons I believe glass dildos are becoming more and more popular is because they’re harder.

Some women struggle with whether it will be uncomfortable. This is where personal preference plays a big part. For the most part since glass dildos are so hard, they make your muscles clench harder against it, creating a more intense orgasm than you might not have had with other toys or even a partner.

The only downside is that they usually don’t vibrate. There are a few that might, but as far as I’ve found the one’s that vibrate aren’t the strongest. If you need vibration to have an orgasm, glass is still definitely worth trying, but might not exactly get you there alone. If that’s the case, use a small clitoral vibrator while using your glass dildo to ensure ultimate satisfaction when you’re finished!

Warm It Up or Cool It Down

You can do this however you would like when it comes to either putting it under the tap for a few minutes to get it warm or cold, or soaking it in a bowl of hot or cold water for a few minutes, either way the toy will hold the temperature for quite a while.

A lot of women tend to like the warm sensation while using their toy, some say that it’s more comfortable with insertion, as well as gives a different experience while using it.

Some women prefer the cooling sensation of using it after soaking in cold water. It creates more of a chilling feeling, leaving you with goosebumps and undeniable excitement!

Do not put your toy in the microwave, boiling water, or the freezer before inserting it. The toy can handle it, but you can not. Hot spots happen in the microwave – where you’re holding might feel okay, but another spot might be way too hot. The freezer is a bad idea because it might stick to wet moist places.

Remember: Rapid temperature changes are not good for your glass toy. Do not let it soak in cold water and then immediately dip it in the hot water, or vise vera – this could damage your toy. Don’t worry though, inserting it into the vagina while its hot or cold will not harm the dildo.

T-explorer 11.8 Inch Transparent Crystal Imitate Glass

T-explorer 11.8 Inch Transparent Crystal Imitate Glass

  • I also know that a lot of women like their glass dildos to be a little bit bigger in length and girth, so I thought I would offer you up an option.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to glass dildos there are an endless amount of options to choose from. The main things to keep in mind is that the material matters! Always remember to go for a toy that is made of high quality glasses that are known for their durability. Don’t for get to look for something with more of a curve to make sure you are hitting the g-spot with every stroke.

If you like deeper penetration something double-ended might be fun, since those tend to be longer. If you tend to feel pain with deeper penetration you have tons of options for something shorter that will be more for direct g-spot stimulation.

Prisms Erotic Glass Prana Thrusting Wand

If you want to feel more of a full feeling go for something that tends to be thicker. If you like more pressure on the g-spot, I would suggest getting something a little thinner that you can still have room to maneuver in circular motions to give pressure on the g-spot.

The possibilities are endless and making glass a priority to try is something I would definitely recommend! I’ve outlined a few great options above, if you need any advice or have any questions feel free to leave a comment below.
