Warm Or Chill Your Glass Dildo For Extra Excitement

Warm Or Chill Your Glass Dildo For Extra Excitement

As you may have already noticed we are huge fans of glass dildo sex toys, in fact, we believe we are the BIGGEST fans there are. When we encountered our first Phallix dildo in 2000 we immediately knew that glass toys would be huge and wasted no time in setting up an e-commerce site to sell them directly to you.

For us it was a simple decision as the benefits were obvious. We knew immediately that the cleanliness of glass over rubber and plastic toys would draw attention. Second, we felt the fact that they are free of nasty chemicals like Phthalates and BPA would cause those who’ve had bad reactions to rubber and plastic to seek such alternatives to enhance their sex lives. Then, last but not least, the sheer artistic beauty of a glass dildo would garner plenty of additional attention.

It wasn’t until we and our customers began to experiment a little with our glass toys that we began to find other exciting attributes that Pyrex glass toys offered, making them much more fun to play with than those stale old rubber or plastic sex toys. Knowing that glass sex toys are tempered glass and capable of adapting and handling various temperatures, even to the extremes, one of the first things that we tried was to place one in the freezer to see what happened.

What an eye opening experience! While not knowing what to expect, we let the it get a little too cold on that initial trial run and had to let it thaw a little before trying it on those sensitive areas. After a few moments it did warm up enough to give it a try and the cold sensation was wonderful especially when using it anally. This led us to try using that glass dildo at various temperatures and experimenting with different ways of warming it up and cooling it down.

Since then, through trial and error, we’ve learned a few things and also received a lot of feedback from our customers as to what they like. To guide you in your experimentation we’d like to pass along what we’ve learned and give you a few best practices to help you with your sexual fun.

Borosilicate Glass Toys Can Handle Various Temperatures

Borosilicate glass, often referred to as Pyrex, is a medium that this capable of adapting to various temperatures, even to the extreme, and withstand what is known as thermal shock due to it having low coefficients of thermal expansion. In addition, after a glass sex toy is shaped by hand using a torch it is then annealed in a kiln for a specified period of time, which then strengthens the glass even further. As you can see, the very nature of its production process is evidence that borosilicate glass is capable of handling extreme temperatures.

We’d like to make a very specific point at this time. You DO NOT ever want to use a glass toy that a) is made of anything other than borosilicate glass and b) hasn’t been annealed. All of the toys that we sell adhere to these two points.

One of the coolest features of a glass sex toy is that they quickly adapt to the temperature of their surroundings. This is something that you should notice right away as they may feel very cool or almost cold when you first insert them but then adjust to body temperature soon after. This can lead to many different and very exciting sexual adventures, as we’ll explore later in this article.

Warming Your Glass Dildo

Often times one of the comments that we receive regarding glass toys is that they are a little cold when you first use them in your lovemaking session. Yes, they are glass and may be cool to the touch when you first pull them out of the pouch, but as mentioned above, they adapt to temperature quickly. This issue can be quickly alleviated by simply using them for a little while, letting them adjust to body temperature or placing them somewhere warm for a few seconds prior to use.

But the fun doesn’t end there!

We highly encourage our customers to let their imaginations run free and safely experiment with their glass toys. Warming up your toy isn’t just limited to making it more comfortable if the toy feels too cold. Some people actually mention that they find it more pleasurable when their toy feels warm to the touch. Also that it seems slicker and reacts better when mixed with their bodily fluids.

You’ll find that you can warm up your Pyrex dildo in a variety of ways but we definitely recommend caution. We’ve seen some people suggesting boiling or to use a microwave to warm up your toy. While a sex toy made of borosilicate glass can handle these methods we recommend caution, as a glass toy can become very hot very quickly.

We also recommend to always temperature test the toy before using it on sensitive areas to avoid any discomfort. First and foremost we adamantly preach safety and your fun parts are very sensitive, we do not want to see you burn your privates.

Until you become familiar with your personal limitations we recommend that you warm your toy slowly by placing it in lukewarm water. As you become more familiar with your toy you can work your way up in temperature and eventually you will find your sweet spot. Glass toys quickly adapt to whatever temperature they’re exposed to and it won’t take long for it to become warm so were sure it won’t ruin the moment.

As such they will also cool down as you use them so we recommend keeping a bowl of warm water nearby to continue warming the toy as needed. Please keep in mind that your glass dildo will become very slippery when wet so please be cautious when handling it, we don’t want to see your precious plaything damaged if you happen to drop in on a hard surface.

We’d like to stress that you while some people suggest warming your toy by boiling or microwaving it. We DO NOT recommend these methods but if you choose to do so use extreme caution with any of these methods to avoid injury.

**Also, please do not place any item that has dichroic artwork in a microwave. The attractive dichoic material used to create the pretty jewel like artwork you see in some glass toys is actually a metallic substance. As with any metal item you may damage to your microwave.

Chilling Your Glass Sex Toy Can Be A Fun Surprise

Warming your toy can be fun but it’s not your only option. Chilling your glass toy can be quite exciting. Some people mention that they love the cool feeling during the heat of the moment and others find it fun to surprise their partner at just the right time.

As with warming your toy you can chill them in a variety of ways although once again we recommend caution. Just as your doctor would recommend when you are icing an injury you want to be careful when placing anything frozen directly on your skin as a frozen item may irritate sensitive skin or even cause further injury.

Once again, you will find people mention more extreme methods such as placing your glass toy in the freezer. While this is perfectly acceptable we recommend that if you were to choose this method that you monitor the length of time that it’s in there closely. Obviously if you were to leave it in there for a longer period of time it would become frozen and while your glass toy can handle it you may not.

As with warming your toy we recommend that you start slowly by placing either placing it in your refrigerator or in a bowl of cool water and working your way slowly toward colder temperatures as you discover what you like. You’ll find that glass will get colder quite quickly so you can easily try different temperatures by leaving it in the cold water a little longer each time. You may want to warn your partner before you try anything too cold although it can be a fun surprise. We’ll leave that up to your judgement.

Experimenting with cooler temperatures is really quite easy. For example you could start with a bowl of cool water then gradually leave your toy in there for longer periods of time. Eventually you’ll find that you may reach a point where it won’t get any colder so you can then add a few ice cubes. As you become more familiar with a cold toy you may want to try adding few more, then a few more and eventually work your way up to using a bowl of ice.

We’ve actually even heard one of our customers describe their glass dildo as a sexy ice cube that never melts!

In the end it’s up to you to use your discretion in how you’d like to use your toys. We primarily preach caution by taking it slow, after all it’s about enjoyment and there’s no need to rush to the next step. Always remember to test the temperature by touch before applying it to any sensitive areas and to handle your glass toy with care, as they do become very slippery.

Once again we encourage you to be creative and experiment with warming or chilling your glass toy. When you think about it there are all sorts of possibilities and we’re sure that like us, you’ll find that a glass dildo is much more fun than those stale old plastic or rubber toys.
