Glass Sex Toy – Is It Half Empty Or Half Full?

Half full or half empty? When it comes to a glass sex toy full is the word most people come to use.  Some people are concerned about the idea of putting glass inside their bodies, so let’s dispel something here.  A glass dildo is not going to break inside of you.

Like, EVER!

What is a Glass Sex Toy Made of? 

Glass dildos (and plugs) are not made of the sort of glass as a window, or what you might sip (guzzle?) wine from.  Think more along the lines of those Pyrex glass vessels in your kitchen.

Now you’re getting there.

Or at least, you will once you unlock the pleasures of glass sex toys. In fact, most glass dildos are made from Borosilicate, of which Pyrex used to be the trade name of.  A one inch rod of Borosilicate glass can withstand 3000 pounds of pressure!!! Even your Elvie won’t get your kegels that tough!

Okay, so now you feel comfortable with the knowledge your glass toy isn’t going to break.  Your next question would no doubt be…

Why a Glass Sex Toy? 

  • Half Full (the pros)

A common reason to turn to glass toys is for temperature. Heat up your glass toy under a steady stream of hot water.  Discover the joys of temperature play.

While many places may suggest simply putting your glass toy in the microwave (you can, it still won’t break), it’s not really recommended.  As a microwave heats in a rather scattered format.  Think about last night’s lasagne reheated.  While tasty, some parts were super hot yet others were still cold.

  • Cold Play

And of course there’s the other extreme.  Try putting your glass dildo into a container of ice cold water, something sure to get your synapses firing on all cylinders.

In saying that, for both hot and cold, extreme temperatures may weaken the glass.  So best not to leave it in a freezer, or submerge it in boiling water.  Glass won’t change colour with temperature either.  So make sure you feel your toy with your hand or elbow (like baby’s bath water) to make sure you don’t scald yourself.

  • Glass is Natural

Glass is natural and non-porous, which means oodles of things you won’t get from your other toys (and I’m not necessarily referring to infections).

It means that air, bacteria, and all manner of fluids cannot be absorbed into a glass toy.  Which means you can use any type of lube with it.  You’ll even discover you’ll use a lot less lube too (mostly on clear coloured toys).

With all of that, it also means it’s a lot easier to clean.  Hot water, air or towel dry, and done!  It can also be sterilized (yes even in an autoclave), which means glass sex toys can be shared.

Most people even say you can wash your glass sex toys in a dishwasher even, which is true.  But just don’t invite me over for dinner or drinks thanks.

  • All decent glass sex toys are hand blown

They can be truly beautiful pieces of art.  The kind of fine wares you keep in your china cabinet.  In fact, I actually have the Motorhead Bomber plug just chilling on my display shelves.  I’ve even had my mother over who is very nosy (aren’t they all?) but made no comment about it while perusing my shelves.

  • Above all, glass dildos and glass anal plugs are solid.

Like really solid. They have no give to them, and often a toy will feel bigger than it really is because of this reason.  On top of this, they can also get quite heavy the larger and thicker they get.  Which allows for some truly new sensations by small shifts of position, letting the mass do all the work.

They’re also great for hitting the p spot and the g-spot.  When you start searching for your first (or next) glass toy, you’ll see how many are designed to do exactly as such.

Half Empty (the cons)

Remember when I told you earlier that you won’t break a glass toy? Well that’s mostly true. You won’t break one inside of you.  But if it gets dropped on a hard surface, it may chip or crack, which could lead to further breakage down the line.

As I said though, a chip or crack or a drop will not make Borosilicate glass shatter.  But should you drop it on a hard surface, be sure to give that little guy a checkover.  If you find a chip and it’s catching on your fingertip, maybe chuck that one out.  Or send it to your china cabinet of beautiful art.

  • Firmness. Wait, wasn’t that a Pro?

Yes, but having such a solid, firm sex toy is not going to be for everyone.  Maybe you won’t find out until you’ve had a few plays.  Also, if you like to go hard on yourself with a toy, using a heavy glass one could leave you a little bruised inside.  So this could be something else to consider, though maybe the weight would be enough to slow you down?

  • Unique

Hand blown glass means that every single item is going to be unique.  So be prepared for this when you buy your toy that it may not look like the photo on the box (or the website).  Typically these are only slight variations.  But especially on the cheaper end of the market, your toy may be completely indistinguishable from the product you originally bought (great example here).

Is Glass Right for Me? 

If you’ve read this far, you’re probably still deciding if glass is right for you. Perhaps only by getting one and having a few plays with it will you ever really know the answer to that one.

As mentioned, when picking your toy, maybe aim at something a little smaller than you ordinarily would.  As it will feel bigger and fuller than a silicone or rubber equivalent.

In normal usage, a glass sex toy will not break inside of you.  Just make sure to shy away from extreme temperatures and dropping it (or knocking it against something hard).

There really are some beautiful and unique glass toys out there, so why not give it a try? Worst that could happen is you have a beautiful new ornament in your china cabinet.  Check out the range of glass sex toys at Adultsmart.

Glass Dildos were once a scary sex toy for me. I thought Glass Dildos looked nice however my sexual fantasies about having a glass dildo shatter inside of me, deterred me away from owning one.

It wasn’t until a partner brought one out and I got to experience it that I had an instant appreciation and love of glass toys. I now recommend them to anyone and everyone that will listen!!

I’ve come up with a glass sex toys guide of why every women should own a glass dildo masterpiece.  I hope it urges all of you reading this to get to buying one ASAP.

Reasons Why We Love Glass Dildos

  • Glass Dildos Can Easily Penetrate

It glides unbelievably well. This means easier penetration when moving in and out of the body. I have found some other materials can be a bit grabby and not as comfortable to move. Only a touch of lubricant, if any at all, is needed when playing with a glass dildo as glass is nonporous and will not absorb anything.

  • Glass Dildos are Easy to Clean

As mentioned above, glass is nonporous hence doesn’t pick up any nasty bacteria.  It only requires a good rinse with soap and water in between uses. I’d recommend glass as a safer option than other materials when it comes to using with multiple partners. They can even go in the dishwasher.  I don’t think many people feel good about putting in a dildo with their dishers but the option is there.

  • Glass Dildos Adjusts to Temperature

I love how glass dildos warm up when used internally. You can also put into an icy bucket or under hot water prior to use for different sensations. As with any glass, it is not recommended to go from extreme hot too cold as this can cause breakage.

  • Glass Dildos Stimulates Sex Spots Easily

The density of glass means it can hit the right spots quite firmly which I love. For those who are looking for more intense G-Spot stimulation, I highly recommend glass dildos. It is much easier to achieve female ejaculation (or squirting as it’s commonly known) with these toys.

  • There are Various Types of Glass Dildos

They come in so many colours, shapes, sizes and patterns. I love the look of glass dildos, they are really elegant and classy, nice enough to put on display (if you don’t mind questions that is). There is definitely a best glass dildo out there to appeal to every persons taste and everybody.

  • Glass Dildos Do Not Deteriorate

For something that has the potential to last forever, glass sex toys are a very affordable sexual investment in the long run!

  • Glass Dildos have Affordable Price Tags

Starting from $20, there are so many options to choose from in store and online.

  • Most People Are Not Allergic to Glass Dildos

Glass is not a porous substance so no harmful bacteria, germs or dirt can get trapped in it’s surface. This mean’s that Glass Dildos are hypoallergenic. If you have a tendency to become allergic to other materials it would be worth it giving a Glass Dildos a try.

  • You Can Add Penis Sleeves onto the Glass Dildo

Adding a Penis Sleeve means you can always change the texture and feeling of the Glass Dildo but it will hold onto your favourite shapes and curves of your sex toy.

What to Keep In Mind Whilst Using Glass Dildos

  • Don’t drop glass sex toys onto hard surfaces as they may shatter.
  • Don’t expose glass sex toys to extreme temperature changes. For example, don’t place a cold Glass Dildo directly under extremely hot water.
  • Keep your glass sex toy within your padded or satin bag. Keeping it separated from other sex toys will ensure that it won’t scratch against other product’s.

Why Use Steel Sex Toys

I also highly recommend ceramic and steel sex toys for many of the same reasons listed above.

Check out adultsmart and see which sex toy tickles you fancy.  As with anything made of glass, it is important that particular attention is made when storing and caring for these dildos.  They are more easily broken than other materials so if dropped or damaged, should not be used.

Most glass dildos bought online at Adultsmart come with a soft velvet pouch which can offer some protection against damage.  When treated with care, these toys can last forever which means there will be plenty of pleasure filled days ahead of you.
