Sex review : glass dildo

So.... My first sex toy review, I'm so excited. I figured there was no better way to launch my sex toy reviews then by reviewing the first sex toy I ever purchased, a glass dildo. This was many years ago ( about 2004 or there abouts) when I bought it, and despite my best effort and google skills, I haven't been able to locate the exact model I bought. The closest thing I found was here.

I got my first sex toy in reaction to being a virgin and getting my first boyfriend. I was too scared for penetrative sex, but wanted to explore sexuality more. This lead to a lot of finger fucking (more on this in blog entries to come). I loved the feeling, but my boyfriend had incredibly rough hands, and he would rip my skin most of the time. This would mean I would get back into my car and suffer the bumpy, two hour long drive back up to my college apartment in agony. I would hold of peeing for as long as possible, because the burning sting when my urine hit the torn skin was like someone had taken acid to my vagina. It would slowly heal over the course of the week only to start all over again over the weekend. After the 3rd time in a month, I put my foot down, his fingers were not going near my chuff ever again.

Then came the process of shopping for a sex toy. At the time I was much more shy then I am now, and was still living at my parents house. I couldn't order things over the internet, because I couldn't have them delivered, and if fact didn't want to even bring it into my parents house. I lived in a very conservative, family oriented, jersey shore town, not a sex shop in site. I'd been traumatized enough by my experiences trying to buy porn in the sex stores in atlantic city. I couldn't imagine talking to the skeevy counter guys (because of course they were all men) about what kind of dildo to get without getting lots of comments and looks that would make me want to take a shower.

I wanted to go far enough away that I would have no chance of running to anyone I knew, and I had stopped into passional, which, at the time was named fetish boutique, just out of curiosity the last time I had visited philly and was completely struck (and, honestly, at the time a little freaked) by how friendly and willing to help the staff was. Me and the boy drove up specifically to make the trip there. We went out to dinner while I worked up the nerve to go in.

I walked into the place, trying to make myself as small as possible, embarrassed and terrified. We were the only people in the place, for which I was grateful. My boyfriend pretty much had to drag me through the store to the counter with the insertables. I was interested, but too nervous to ask about anything, instead whispering to him to indicate what I wanted to see. I wanted something basic, not too expensive, and that required very little care.

I settled on a basic glass dildo with a tapered bulb on either end, one smaller then the other. The saleslady patiently explained that they were easy to clean.... just wash with antibacterial soap to clean; boil or put in the top rack of the dishwasher to sanitize. She also explained that they hold temperature well, and you could put it in warm water or in the freezer before play to add a new dimension to the session.

We took it home, excited to try it. I first time he inserted it, it felt so good, I burst into tears. I had never felt anything like it. Having my boyfriend use it on me while I rubbed my clit, brought me to the most intense orgasm I'd ever had. It soon became something we did every time we were together. There were some drawbacks to it however. I like my information in bullet format whenever possible, and I assume everyone's like me .... so here's the pros and cons of glass dildos in fun bullet form.

Pros
- Retains heat and cold... fun to play with
- Bulb design was easy to hold
- Almost indestructible (I've dropped it... a lot, on tile, hardwood flooring, and on my stone counter tops, not a crack or chip to be seen)
- Doesn't degrade like some other materials can (I've had it 5 years and it's still in the same condition as when I got it)
- Glass needs far less lube
- Incredibly easy clean up

Cons
- Doesn't give at all (Be careful when it's someone else using it on you, if you hit something at the wrong angle, it really hurts)
- Takes a while to heat up (pulling it from a cold drawer, it can be jarring, warm it up with your hands first)

All in all, I absolutely love glass dildos! They're easy to use and clean, and require pretty much no special care. You can drop them and they don't break, you can heat or cool them. Mine is my old standby. I use it almost daily, though I do prefer it for solo play more then using it with others. However, if you're partner's not the careless type, go for it!

Rating: 5 stars!
