Glass toys are the most exquisite examples of luxury sex toys. The main benefits include longevity – if cared for correctly and carefully they will last a lifetime, and that they’re 100% skin safe and non-porous. They have been manufactured especially for the purpose of being internally used sex toys. They are tough, resilient, shatterproof and solid.

Why Choose Glass?

On a practical level, they are compatible with all types of lube, and you won’t need to use as much on clear glass as you would with other materials. Glass is also easy to clean and can be sterilized using hot water.

Glass is a natural and reusable material which is the safest of all to use. It’s hygienic, non-porous and free of any chemical that could be harmful. Most glass toys are made from high-grade borosilicate glass, which is durable, safe, and sturdy. However, there are cheaper and less reliable alternatives, so always check before purchasing.

Also, if you’re someone who gets turned on by experimenting with the wonderful sensations you can get from different temperatures, then glass toys are perfect for you as they can withstand extreme temperatures!

So, Why Isn’t Everyone Using Glass Toys?

As with many kinks, there are many myths surrounding glass toys. Many fear that a glass toy could break during use, causing horrendous internal injuries. As mentioned above, most are made from borosilicate glass, which is the same kind of material Pyrex oven dishes are made from. Worrying that a glass dildo will break inside you is like worrying that your Pyrex dish will explode into a million pieces when the oven reaches a lukewarm temperature.

Nevertheless, always check what you’re buying, and avoid any ‘cheap’ glass toys that are on the market – these are likely to be mass produced and won’t undergo quality checks as often as the pricier pieces.

Unless your toy is chipped, it won’t harm you. Although glass toys are impossible to damage with normal use, there’s always a chance that you’ll drop or knock it and incur damage. If you do notice any chips or cracks in your toy, discard it carefully and immediately.

The biggest danger when it comes to glass play is, in fact, temperature play. Glass is very sensitive to temperature and can be manipulated through running the toy under warm or cool water. However, some take it a little too far. Don’t ever freeze your sex toy. Ever. Do you remember that tongue scene in ‘Dumb and Dumber’? Enough said. The same applies for boiling hot water.

How to Use a Glass Toy

Start with a little external stimulation by rolling or trailing your glass toy over your body. Textured versions, like Glass Worxx Sparkle Scepter (£24.99, kinky.co.uk), feel great when rubbed over thighs, clitoris or shaft of the penis.

Then, lubricate your toy so it slides in with ease. The great thing about glass is that you can use absolutely any lubricant with it!

Once your toy is inserted, try twisting it inside you. If you have a glass dildo with ribs or bumps, like the Glass Worxx G Spot Gemstone (£17.99, kinky.co.uk), it will feel incredible against your vaginal walls and produce intense sensations!

Temperature play

Unlike other materials where you can only achieve a certain amount of temperature variation through using cooling or warming lubes, glass toys can be heated up or cooled down to your liking. Varying the temperature can intensify orgasms and feels great on the clit and during penetration.

When playing with the temperature of your toy, ease your way into it. Especially if you have a glass butt plug, like the Icicles No. 48 Pink (£29.99, kinky.co.uk), as your anus is incredibly sensitive.

The safest way to heat up your glass toy is by leaving it out at room temperature for a few minutes. Then fill a large pan with hot, but not boiling, water and submerge your glass toy for 10 minutes. Always test the temperature of your toy on your forearm first to prevent any nasty surprises!

For something a little different, you can cool your glass toy in the fridge for 10 minutes. As mentioned above, avoid placing your toy in the freezer. Again, check the temperature on your forearm before using it.
