Glass has many uses. We look through it, we drink out of it, and some people wear it on their face on a daily basis. But you would be forgiven if it’s not the first material you think of when you think of sex toys. Glass can be dangerous when it breaks and anyone who’s ever had to sweep up the remnants of a vase they accidentally bumped into knows that (still sorry about that, Mam.)
That said, we’re not recommending you lube up and go to town with any random glass object. That probably doesn’t need to be said, but also cannot be said enough. Don’t do it! However, we can recommend doing that with a high-quality glass sex toy purchased from a trusted retailer. And look at that, we have a whole selection here!
There are a few different things worth knowing about glass toys. Firstly, we need to talk about safety to allay fears you might have. Glass dildos are made with a pyrex- type glass – yes, like the containers you store your leftovers in – meaning that they’re incredible durable and not going to break inside you. So, we can put that to rest! (That said, if you ever drop a glass toy on a hard floor (like tile) it’s probably best to retire it – even if you can’t see the cracks, it’s definitely better safe than sorry.)
Another fact about glass toys and safety that it’s worth knowing: they’re generally non-porous, free from toxins and weird chemicals – so very body safe. Because they’re non-porous, glass dildos don’t pick up any of the bacteria, odour or wear that some other material toys do. They’re super easy to clean too – you can stick them right in the dishwasher! For the record, PlayBlue only stock high-quality toys in all materials, but this extra piece of mind can’t hurt, right?
The most obvious thing about glass toys is that they’re extremely beautiful – I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that they’re basically works of art. And they’re made to last in a way that many other materials don’t. If you take care of your glass toy, you’ll have it forever. Then, you can pass it down as an extremely inappropriate, weird heirloom – or…maybe not.
One thing that many cast as a downside about glass toys is that they’re inflexible. While traditional materials tend to be more pliable, glass toys don’t tend to move with the body in the same way. However, this has it’s upsides too – a firmer toy is better for stimulating your sweet spots directly, and if you like a rougher penetration glass toys are perrrrrfect.
In terms of sensation, glass toys are generally the smoothest toys you’ll ever use, but they also come in a variety of textures. Bumps, ridges, nodules and even one shaped like a Chili Pepper – all designed to please you whatever way you like.
In conclusion: glass toys are body safe, long-lasting, beautiful and satisfying. What on earth are you waiting for?!
