[This dildo, and Phallix as a manufacturer, are now kaput, but beautiful glass toys can be found from Crystal Delights or Simply Blown.

Also, the Double Trouble, Glass Dual Curved Wand, and Icicles No. 28 are similar to this dildo.]

phallix-inside-out-spiral-rib-double-dongAfter a while, all my reviews of glass toys are going to sound the same. “It’s great! A bit pricey, but hey, it’s basically worth it!”

I wish there were new points to make. But the thing is, glass cannot fail. Cleaning is a non-issue (sterilize by boiling, wiping with 10% bleach solution or running through dishwasher, top rack, no soap.). It doesn’t vibrate, so I can’t complain about it being too weak or taking obscure batteries. It’s not made of a creepy porous material. It always looks beautiful. Oh, glass. How I lust after you.

So I’m left to pout about two superficial things:

  1. The stripes on the dildo are pink, not blue, green, or purple. Apparently this dildo comes in multiple colors, and I am doomed to always end up with pink glass dildos. I think there might be a smidgen of orange in there… maybe…
  2. It came with a thin black satin pouch with white lace — not exactly inconspicuous, and very much not padded. I’m not sure what the criteria is for whether a glass toy comes with a padded bag or not, because my bumpy dildo came with a fuzzy pink bag. I feel slightly gypped.

But oh wow, the dildo itself is fantastic. I’ve never had a glass dildo with a bulbous head before, and this one fully won me over. It was just large enough to be a challenge, and it felt great once my vagina accepted it. I moved it slowly inside myself at first, gradually speeding up, relishing in the sensation of the head.

The swirls on the shaft were not as noticeable, sadly. I could feel general ridges, but they weren’t pronounced enough to be felt individually.

Now, perhaps I should address the “double dong”ness of this dildo. Both heads are the same size and shape, so there’s nothing to gain from switching ends. I did, however, really appreciate having something to grasp as I fucked myself, and having that thing curled and extended toward me. It was more comfortable than fucking myself with a straight shaft.

So, all in all, a rad glass dildo. My only legitimate gripe is the price, as I believe there is probably a reasonable facsimile available for cheaper.
