Glass dildos like the Fifty Shades of Grey Glass Massage Wand are the hidden gems of the sex toy world. These elegant glass sex toys bring a number of qualities to the bedroom that you don’t get with your typical jelly or silicone sex toys. What is so great about glass dildos you say? Where are the best places to get glass sex toys? And what is temperature play anyway? The Pleasure Collection is there to give you all the details you need on this beautiful sex toy.
Most sex toys these days are made from jelly, plastic, or silicone. These materials are inexpensive, easy to source, and can last a few years if taken care of properly. They are your basic mass produced sex toy, and great for those who are just beginning to create their sex toy collection. Once you’ve established what kind of dildos, butt plugs and other insertion toys you like, you should start to look for longer lasting toys, like those made from glass.
Glass sex toys are durable (the ones from Touch of Glass have a lifetime warranty), hypoallergenic, and super easy to clean. Glass dildos are best for those who like a stiff toy – there’s no give with glass sex toys! While most glass sex toys are made for vaginal insertion, there are also glass butt plugs, glass ben wa balls, and even glass vibrators. Unlike many other types of sex toys, they can be used with either water based or silicone based lubricants. Glass dildos with flared bottoms can even be used in some O-ring based strapon harness sets.
Cleaning and caring for glass toys is very simple. Since they’re made from the same style of glass used for cookwear, they can be placed in the top wrack of your dishwasher for a complete clean and sterilization. If having your sex toys with your dishes isn’t too appealing of an idea, you can also wash them with warm soapy water, or a specially designed toy cleaner. Most glass sex toys come with a cloth sack to keep them in, and that’s how I store mine.
One great quality that glass sex toys have is that they can be heated up or cooled down for temperature play. Warming up or cooling glass dildos is a relatively simple process, and Fifty Shades Playroom has done a great job showing exactly how it’s done in their Temperature Play With A Glass Dildo post. (No, it’s not as simple as sticking it in the microwave or freezer!) Take the time to do it right for a new sensory play experience.
One thing to note about glass sex toys – there has been a serious flood of the market in the last few years with cheaper quality toys that are mass produced. These toys are made from lesser quality glass, and don’t have the hand-crafted attention to detail that other retailers have. Glass dildos are one of those sex toys that I tend to pay a bit more for from retailers I know have hand crafted and high quality products. After all, this is my vagina’s care we are talking about!
