In the first place, it’s glass, so there’s absolutely zero give, and then there are those pink beads on the shaft, which are definitely raised up enough to make an impression. On top of that, there’s an upturned bit on the end that’s designed to be a g-sport stimulator, and on top of that, it vibrates. All told, that’s a lot of toy!
Both Miss Rat and Helpful Boyfriend shared my concerns about this particular toy, but then when I was at a kink event the other week, someone I met there absolutely raved about it. She thought it was the best thing ever.* Looking over at the site, it’s got a lot of great reviews, too.
First, let’s talk about structure. This dildo is essentially a glass sleeve that fits snugly over a standard silver vibrating dildo with the use of two rubber bands. Out of curiousity, I popped the sleeve off, breaking the vacuum seal, and the dildo fit only loosely over the vibe until Helpful Boyfriend figured out that you needed to roll the rubber bands over in a certain way to get the vibe to stick in the sleeve again.
This is not a gentle warm-up toy. Let’s get that out upfront. I’ve found its girth challenging, and the bumps make it kind of harsh to me. I think to someone who was built wider than I am in the vagina would do better with this toy. You can really feel every single bump, especially when you are thrusting with it, and no amount of lube really makes that go away. The size of it made the g-spot stimulation part of actual painful when I tried to move it around at all, so I gave up on that pretty fast.
In terms of vibration power, I would say this toy is about a medium, but it is definitely worth noticing that thanks to the slight rattle of the vibe inside the glass, this toy can get loud!**
I think the vibe, for me at least, is definitely going to be more of a special occasions toy. It takes some warm-up, and the bumps are tough if you’re not in the mood for that kind of sensation. I found myself wishing this toy was skinnier, just so it could slide a little more easily, and this was after lots of lube.
I liked it best when I was using it with some kind of clitoral stimulation. Over all, my thought is that this toy is trying to do a lot of different things, and only succeeding moderately with any of them. This is definitely the right choice for people who want more and then more than that, and apparently tonight, that’s not me.
In other non-sex toy related new, I cannot stop writing. There is so much writing. There is so much writing due before December 1st that I’m actually a little freaked out. On one hand, money good. On the other hand, that weird fear of having my fingers fall off, less good.

*One of the nice things about this toy being as distinctive as it is is that you can recognize its description after about four words. Glass, vibrator, and pink bumps are basically all you need.
