Glass Sex Toys Guide

Although people have started getting on the trend train with these stunning hand crafted toys, there are many of us still with questions and unnecessary concerns surrounding glass, its safety and its use in personal intimacy. I have found that many women love them, but are hesitant to use them. In fact, just the thought of penetrating yourself with anything that’s made of glass seems to make some women cringe because when some people think of glass they also think of glass “breaking”. Ouch!

I’ll be delving further into what makes glass more beneficial than other mediums used to create your sex toys and also, how safe is glass when it comes to inserting it into the body. There will also be some cons, but researching this, there are many more benefits and positives, switching over to the world of glass.

Firstly, I will say that high temperature treated glass has been used for thousands of years. With earliest evidence dating back to BC, you can be content in knowing the roots of history to this art form show that this is a technique perfected very early in human civilisation and almost unaltered since its discovery. Compared to more recent materials used to create our most renowned sex toys in the industry and as most of the vibrators you own in your collections that are being formed by rubbers and plastics that were trialled, tested and patented only since the 1800s.

I have been using high temperature glass for ear lobe stretching and body modification on myself and others for years now, being almost indestructible, hypoallergenic, hygienic and very easily inserted with an array of different based lubricants. I have never had an issue with cracking, shattering or healing when I wear these permanently as opposed to silicone, acrylics and even high grade surgical steel. Mind you I can’t tell you how many times I have had tempered glass jewellery pop out of my ears after conditioning and treating the area, smashed hard on my tiles or pavement but they never break, chip or mark.

Most people that have collections of varied sex toys will generally keep their items well-treated. It isn’t hard to care for glass toys and the only way the glass may be chipped or marked is if you are damaging it with intention. I’d also advise to prevent poor quality and possible injury while using this medium internally is by researching and purchasing these items from a good Adult store who stock familiar brands and toys from companies with safety in mind.

Although tempered glass is very strong, vibrating glass toys which still use tempered glass structurally are different. Glass vibrators need a hollowed chamber internally for wiring and motors and due to this internal space, these toys wouldn’t be as durable as a plain glass toy that is solid and structurally stronger than the ones that vibrate for added pleasure. In saying that though it is very rare for these toys to break as long as you stick with those familiar brands like Doc Johnson and Pipedream who make some very high quality glass vibrators.

As glass is a non-porous material and not only is its integrity and strength highly durable because of this, it also means it is far more hygienic and even hypoallergenic for those who have allergies or intolerances to plastics and rubbers like silicone, latex, and soft plastic resistance. Glass is so versatile you can use any type of lubricant without worrying it may damage the toy and when it comes to cleaning, you can easily rinse and disinfect without destroying the strength and quality of the sex toy. Cleaning and drying time for glass toys are far less than a toy made of silicone. And if you intend on sharing your toys around with someone or multiple partners, glass options are highly affective for this use as they can be thoroughly cleaned without any issues of disease and pathogen transfers, HIV etc.

Performance and feel of the smooth texture of a glass toy is intensified by a powerful glide lubricant, the firmness of it actually feels really good. It’s almost as if you become more sensitive to every ridge and ripple. I was told by some women who did a bit of research and discovered that glass toys are more successful in finding the G-spot and I will second that notion. Glass also retains a cool temperature so when it is held or inserted it retains this mild coolness that also adds to the experience.

With frequent use of high end silicone sex toys I have noticed most users will find their toys noticeably deteriorate within roughly 4 years of having the product. Glass lasts for a very long time, if glass toys are kept in good condition there is no reason why it won’t last for 10 years or more. They are also very discreet as most people wouldn’t bat an eyelid at seeing a hand crafted glass wand sitting out proudly on your bedside table. They are far less confronting than most silicone phallic shaped favourites that you may still need to hide when guests are around.

Glass toys can be affordable with prices ranging from about $30.00 but can also reach as much as $400.00 for the really high end pieces. And if you’re a sucker for beautiful things like I am, then glass dildos also mean you own very unique, pretty masterpieces, originally crafted with care. Whether you buy them intending to use it or just display it for visual delights, glass is a pretty amazing material that has refreshed the idea of an orgasm and something a little different and daring to try yourself but totally worth the adventure!
