I’ve been meaning to write about glass toys for a while now; in all honesty I had hoped that my collection would’ve grown slightly before writing this piece. With summer upon us I have been eagerly searching for the best methods to help make the hopefully forthcoming scalding weather bearable. My first instinct was to dive into the freezer chest to see what delightful treasures it would hold. An ice-lolly, hmm great for those who have sweet teeth but definitely not for those with autoeroticism in mind… ice cubes, a little too small and slippery…. chips, as well as being greasy and pointy really aren’t long enough… eureka! A glass dildo was found underneath all the unsatisfying food products.
Now some of you may be thinking: isn’t glass just as unsafe in its own way as any of those other items within the freezer? Won’t the glass break? I thought glass items such as bottles shattered in a freezer? On the contrary, glass sex toys are very different to standard glass objects. Glass sex toys are made from borosilicate which some of you may recognize as Pyrex. Most people nowadays will have have came across items made from borosilicate, whether it is within the kitchen, or through a profession such as medicine where glass is used to make certain lab devices. This is one hard wearing material which won’t shatter or chip easily. I’m that confident in my glass toys that I am happy to travel with them, without worrying overly much about wrapping them up in bubble wrap.
Anyway in the past few months I have purchased three new glass toys after rediscovering the one’s tucked at the back of the freezer:
Glassvibrations Textured Devil Tongue Glass Dildo: I’m very pleased with this toy; in all honesty it is probably my favorite dildo. The contour is perfect for hitting the g-spot, and the ridges are great during general massage. The pointy tip may put you off slightly but doesn’t cause any discomfort during insertion. If anything it helps the dildo glide smoothly from entrance to climax. The handle is an added bonus, not only making it easy to grip during underwater activities, but I have also found that certain bullet vibrators are able to slot into it…. huzzah! you now have one amazing vibrator. My review for this can be found here: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=21349&reviewid=32792#customer_reviews
Glassvibrations Silver Glass Penis Butt Plug: Now I haven’t written a review for this yet, but hopefully will do soon. Anyway the product details can be found here: http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=21353
So far from my experience this butt plug is one of the best. I’ve had difficulty in finding a plug that would stay in, especially during vaginal penetration or g-spot orgasm; this has stayed in no matter what. I also find its appearance very cute and non-threatening. Where the urethral hole for a penis is, there is a little dip which is brilliant when putting a dollop of lube on the toy before insertion. It’s also very easy to clean when compared to the standard jelly or silicone toys I own. There was only one downside to this product; mine wasn’t properly silvered as there is an obvious dark marking on the glass, though these pieces are aesthetically individualistic. 

Climax Kegels Glass Ben Wa Balls: I purchased these kegel balls not for exercise, but for the insertion of a cooled item in myself. These can be found here: http://www.sextoys.co.uk/Pelvic-Exercise/Climax-Kegels-Glass-Ben-Wa-Balls.asp These balls really don’t work for kegel exercises from my experience, but they work as an excellent internal icepack. They are also very small compared to standard kegel balls, so women who have experienced problems with similar toys being too large might find these more comfortable.

 
Unfortunately this is not as informative regarding products or facts as I would have liked. I’ve been doing a search regarding glass toy history, but there doesn’t seem to be much out there, even from manufacturers. There is more information regarding ceramic sex toys than glass, which is sad considering ceramic toys are harder to get hold of. In regards to ceramic sex toys there’s information from excavation in places such as Pompeii, Stone Age artefacts, and Victorian sex toy shops, whereas it seems glass toys basically started with Pyrex and pretty lampwork beads.

The three glass toys within the Pyrex jug can be found here:
