One of my favorite colors of glass is cobalt blue. I’m obsessed with the stuff, and have been known to scour thrift stores and antique shops for blue bottles and glasses whenever I can. TabuToys offered Spartacus’ Blown Glass G-Spot Dildo in Blue to me, and once I saw the color I couldn’t refuse. While this isn’t as deep a blue as my beloved cobalt, it’s still a pretty shade that’s somewhere between that and sky blue.
This glass g-spot toy is a very simple design. The head is a upward curving ‘bloop’ of glass, the shaft is perfectly smooth, thin and relatively short, and the handle is a loop/circle. The widest point of the ‘bloop’ is 1.5 inches in diameter, and it ends in a very rounded ‘head’. I found that the handle works well for various sized fingers. I wear a size medium glove and my mate wears a size large, and we both could fit two fingers into the loop comfortably.
The packaging for this dildo was a cardboard tube, with an insert in the middle to hold the toy in place. While I liked that the box was a hexagon shape, it was far too large and bulky for storage, and Spartacus didn’t include any sort of storage bag. I’ve taken to storing my glass toys in random bright (read as: obnoxious) socks that I find at Walmart on clearance. Tacky Halloween/Easter/Christmas socks make excellent toy bags for glass! Glass won’t pick up lint, and it is easy to clean. Water and antibacterial soap works well for day to day cleaning, and to totally sterilize it, you can boil your toy for 5 minutes, wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution, or even toss it in the top shelf of your dishwasher.
This dildo is made of borosilicate glass, which is what Pyrex baking dishes are made of. This is a great choice for sex toys because it’s resistant to temperature extremes (though switching from extreme hot to extreme cold is a good way to snap your toy), and less likely to break. (Also, if it does break, it will break into large chunks rather than tiny splinters.) This means that you can warm or cool your toy for sensation play without worrying about damaging it. If I’m using a glass toy for temperature play, I leave the toy in a bowl of hot, but not boiling water, or one with ice in it for about 5 minutes. Be smart and test the temperature of the glass before you insert it into someone. Burning or freezing your partner’s ass or pussy is a good way to spoil the mood and possibly get banished to the couch for the night. You should also check your glass out for chips or cracks each time before you use it as well.
This is a pretty simple and basic dildo, and I wasn’t expecting to be wowed by it. However, I was nicely surprised at how well it got me off. The bloop at the end of the toy is nicely angled to hit my g-spot when I’m thrusting, and it’s wide enough that it feels slightly less filling than two fingers. The angle of the head also helps keep my wrist from cramping up when I’m jacking off (Please tell me that I’m not the only one this happens to! Weird angles+epic jack off session=wrist cramps, and occasionally tingly fingers for me.) I’ve come several times while I used the Blown G-Spot dildo, and they’ve been good orgasms. Not gushing/squirting, but very wet, if that makes sense? Short version: this is a great piece if you’re just getting into glass toys or g-spot toys, and well worth investing in.
As always, be careful to not get too carried away when you’re masturbating with a really solid toy, such as metal or glass. Internal bruising can (and does! Bruising your cervix freaking sucks!) happen from thrusting too hard.
I give this 4 blue paws up out of 5! If there had been some sort of storage pouch, I would have given this a 5 out of 5.
