Review – that one Sailor Moon dildo/Crystal Heart wavy glass dildo

heartI bought the Crystal Heart wavy glass dildo (nice name, guys, really original) from Lovehoney after having lusted after it for nearly a year, and it arrived as usual, well packed in discreet brown cardboard packaging. It comes in a slim box with an image of the dildo itself on the outside. After opening it, I found that instead of the usual storage bag it comes in a little display case! I initially thought this case was made of frosted glass due to the thickness and feel of it, but much to my surprise, it’s plastic. This is a cute touch but I still wish they’d included a storage bag, I don’t really understand why they don’t come as default.

The dildo itself has a shaft with three bulbs that start off small and elongated and get progressively rounder and fatter. The tip is tapered, and it has a flattened base with the pink glass heart sculpted on top of it, which enables it to be safely used for anal play. It’s a gorgeous piece – it looks like some kind of magic wand (the fictional fairy princess kind, not the mains-powered kind), or a bizarre lollipop, or maybe an x-rated Sailor Moon accessory? It’s probably the least intimidating sex toy I’ve ever seen, despite being made of a thick glass.

All of my glass toys prior to this one have been reasonably textured but this one’s smooth and sleek and probably one of the tamer looking ones I own. It’s fairly slim (5.85 inches in girth) with the graduated bulbs and rigidity making for a fuller feeling when inserted deeper, but it’s still a little…blah. I’ve found that the slightly tapered tip of the dildo can make for some uncomfortable pokey sensations when I tilt it too far upwards – I wasn’t able to stimulate my g-spot at all with this like I’ve been able to with a few other dildos, and I think this is down to it being (apart from the bulbs) totally straight.

cirAs glass has no give, it’s much more difficult to try and manoeuvre it like you would with a silicone toy, and because of that I prefer not to try and thrust with this toy, I normally apply plenty – almost an excess – of lube, and use a gentle twisting motion or a slow slide in and out, and if I pull my legs back up to my chest while keeping them closed I’m able to feel the bumps of the dildo brushing close to my clit as I use it, which is great for me.  Overall I’ve found it’s better for a slower, more sensual motion than a more frantic thrust.

I don’t use this toy for clit stimulation as much as some of my other glass pretties because there’s no swirls or nodules going on – I still love it for sensory play, warming it up in hot water or putting it in the freezer for a few minutes, but I get much more internal use out of this. As the toy isn’t too weighty and you have the glass heart handle (keep a tissue or something handy – it gets slippery when wet and nearly impossible to keep a firm grip on), I can easily use a small wand or an external vibe with this without getting hand cramp if I feel like I need more external stimulation going on.

Using this for anal play is an absolute dream and I think I prefer it for butt stuff than vaginal use. It’s super smooth and not overly textured, so ideal if you want a step up from larger anal beads or butt plugs with defined waists, and as glass can be used with any kind of lube you can use the thickest, most slippery silicone lube you like without any worry that you’re going to damage your toy. The flared base below the heart stops it from going too far and if you manage it, you’ll see how cute it looks with just the little heart poking out, just like a decorative plug!

deOverall, I’d say that this toy – while not being the most exciting thing I’ve ever put inside of myself – is a nice addition to my toybox and I find myself reaching for it fairly often. It ticks nearly all of my boxes – I love glass, it’s cute as hell, it’s well made, it’s versatile, and, bonus – it comes with a storage container. I’d recommend this toy to anyone, really, except perhaps seasoned texture, girth, or intense g-spot play lovers – I’d say it’d be especially perfect for people who may have used silicone dildos with a bit of texture and enjoyed them, and who are curious about trying glass for the first time.

You can get your very own Sailor Moon sex toy at Lovehoney (UK-based) or Shevibe (US-based).

    I’m still unsure about glass in general, but I think this is such a lovely toy. It sounds great for anal!
