So you're interested in glass sex toys but you're unsure if they're for you. Don't worry! By the time you learn about all the benefits of glass dildos, you'll be excited about adding glass to your nightstand.
Let's start with the obvious: glass dildos look super cool. They can be clear, colored, or dichroic, which creates a rainbow effect. Glass sex toys can also contain flowers or drops of color that appear suspended in the glass. Some even glow in the dark!
But glass is a great material for so many more reasons! Its rigidity means it creates intense sensations! While you might not feel every bump or whorl on other dildos, you will on a glass dildo. That's great if you need a lot of pressure for G-spot stimulation, and, of course, plenty of glass dildos are curved for that exact purpose. Because of this lack of give, you might want to stick with glass dildos that are a little smaller than your softer dildos.
Speaking of shapes, glass is perfect for a double dildo, letting you choose which side to use. It's almost like getting two toys in one! In fact, some floggers have glass dildo handles, so you can experience two vastly different sensations when using them!
You'll also like glass if you enjoy temperature play. Placing your toy in a bowl or cool or warm water will change the temperature of the dildo, which changes how the toy feels when you play with it. To be safe, never freeze or boil the toy because you don't want to hurt one of the most sensitive places on--or in--your body.
Glass does pose a few other safety concerns. First, it's unlikely to break during use but could break if dropped into your sink or onto the floor. Thin necks near handles or bases tend to be weak spots. Many toys come with soft storage bags to protect glass toys when not in use.
Of course, glass is incredibly slick, especially when you add lube. You may want to use less lube than usual or look for a glass toy with a handle or loop to make it easier to hold. Similarly, if you plan to use a glass dildo or toy for anal play, it needs a flared base to prevent it from getting stuck.
However, glass is a great material choice because it's nonporous, which means it doesn't harbor bacteria like some materials. It can be easier to clean with regular soap and water, too. And you can sterilize it via boiling or bleach, so you know it's clean!
