Glass sex toys: WTF?

Glass sex toys are the world’s latest obsession. From intricately designed butt plugs to hand blown dildos, these toys are like the Gucci of sex toys. But the idea of a glass dildo or sex toy might sound like the worst thing you’ve heard yet. And, I get it, we’ve all had horror stories of breaking our grandma’s fine China or best friend’s aunty’s favourite wine glass. The last thing you’d want to do is stick a glass dildo inside you and have it shatter into a million pieces, or have to explain to your flatmates what that smashing sound is when your beloved friend slips out your bedside drawer. But fear not! I’m here to vouch for all the glass toys out there and assure you that they really aren’t as scary as they seem!

Firstly, let’s clear something up to set your minds at ease. Obviously, these toys are made from glass. However, glass sex toys are made from borosilicate glass, the same glass as your mum’s Pyrex measuring jug collection, meaning they are totally durable and body safe!

I can confidently say I have survived many a rendezvous with my glass dildo, with no trips to the A&E. Whether you opt for a butt plug, dildo, or Kegel balls, most glass toys are crafted with bumps and textures to hit every spot. Glass is incredibly soft and with a bit of lube, it glides across the skin for a truly luxurious experience.

“What’s the point?” I hear you ask. Well, glass is a particularly versatile material, meaning you can enjoy a bit of temperature play in the bedroom. Heat things up by putting your toy in a bowl of warm water, or stick it in the freezer for those balmy summer nights. It sounds a bit unorthodox (who wants to stick a glass popsicle up their privates?) and trust me, I wasn’t about to be caught dead pulling my new friend out of the flat freezer at 2am on a Friday night. Luckily, a bowl with some ice and water works just as well (pro tip!) and you’ll be good to go in no time. And let me tell you: a little bit of water can make all the difference! It wasn’t long before I was running the warm water to try out the other end of the spectrum. Seriously, it’s like three toys in one!

Okay, maybe you’re not quite convinced. What if I told you that, when looked after properly, glass toys can last a LIFETIME? That’s right, not only are these babies super sleek and fancy looking, they are practically eternal! Plus they are compatible with all lubricants, and can even be chucked in the dishwasher for a clean afterwards if you’re feeling a little worn out. If your experience is anything like mine, I don’t blame you!
