The story of Cinderella had her wearing an elegant slipper made of glass. The image was attractive and romantic, perhaps because of the slipper’s potential fragility, which made it delicate; or its resemblance to crystal; or perhaps just because the writer of the story had a foot fetish. Regardless, glass throughout history has been much more than functional. Combined with lead and made into elegant crystal stemware, it is the height of elegance and is often given as a romantic gift at weddings.
Glass has an ambience and a mythology all on its own, and in recent times, it has translated to sexual pleasure. The use of glass as a material for sex toy design is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s no secret why. Touted as products that can “last a lifetime”, Glass Dildos and similar Glass sex toys are as functional as they are beautiful.
Now, your first question will be whether or not they are safe. To answer that question: yes indeed, they are very safe. The glass used for sex toys isn’t the same type of glass used for windows, or kitchenware – rather, it’s borosilicate, which is an extremely durable and shatter-resistant material. You may have some of this material in your kitchen – it’s also known as Pyrex. Who knew, back in the 1800’s when this marvellous material was invented that it would find its way out of the kitchen and into the bedroom? Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe, and they’re a lot more common than most people realise. Another benefit of course, is that glass dildos are extremely easy to clean and are non-porous, so no nasty bacteria can call the surface home if cleaned properly.
If you enjoy visually attractive designs for your dildos, then glass will produce some of the most amazingly artistic sex toys on the market. In the world of art, glass is a wonderful medium for colour and design, and the same is true in the world of adult toys and products.
Perhaps one of the most unique features of Glass dildos is that they can often be warmed up or cooled down for unbelievable erotic sensations! Simply heat them with hot water or cool them in the fridge for a different experience. Another big advantage is the smoothness. They’re very smooth and slick, which when combined with the rigid nature of the glass dildo, makes for an exciting and pleasurable encounter. The smooth factor that is inherent to a glass dildo also means that you won’t always need lubricant. It’s clear to see, Glass sex toys are gaining popularity worldwide, and with good reason.
