When I featured glass ben wa balls in our last Bawdy Bookworms Box, I received a lot of questions about in our Facebook group. We’d previously discussed ben wa balls before, but glass toys were new to many of us. Here’s the low down.
The first time I ever held a hand-blown glass dildo, I was equally terrified and fascinated.
Six inches long, the clear glass held mesmerizing blue inside its 1.5 inch wide shaft. Breathtakingly beautiful. As I studied its flared base, the cold glass warmed up in my hands. That’s when I understood the possibilities of glass toys.
What if it breaks?
I know what your first question is: what if the glass breaks inside of me?
Glass sex toys are made of strong borosilicate glass–the same type that’s used to make those glass bakeware. You know, like the one Aunt Mae bakes her pumpkin pie in. So unless you’re swinging your glass dildo around or banging it against a hard surface, you have nothing to worry about.
Why you should try a glass sex toy
You’ll want to add a few to your pleasure pantry and here’s why:
- The smooth glass surface feels amazing against your most sensitive areas. If the toy has ridges or bumps, you’ll feel it even more.
- The hard glass adds a unique firmness to internal and external play. A new meaning to “I like it hard.”
- You can warm up your toy. Imagine sliding a glass dildo heated 98.6 F. Whoa. Heat your toy safely but wrapping a warm washcloth or heating pad around it. (Do not microwave it. Test the warm against your hand before inserting.)
- How about chilling your toy instead? Place the toy in your fridge or let it sit in a bowl of ice water for shocking experience. (Do not place in freezer. Remember the frozen pole scene in A Christmas Story?)
- Glass toys are compatible with all lubricants. Lubricants make everything feel better.
- Clean-up is easy. Glass isn’t porous so it’s easier to wash your toys. Use a sex toy cleaning spray or stick it in your dishwasher–just make sure to empty the dishwasher first.
