One of the best parts of writing this blog is that I get to try a lot of products that I wouldn’t normally have access to. I also get to recommend cool things to my friends. That’s why I was super excited when Lovehoney decided to send me the following two products just in time for the holidays. Both of these items are a bit out of the ordinary and would make awesome, affordable stocking stuffers.
1. Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo ($29.99) – If you’re looking for something totally different for you or your meaningful other(s), why not try a glass dildo like this one?!
It’s been a really long time since I reviewed a glass toy
, so I thought it would be fun to feature one again. The Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo
is a gorgeous piece of erotic architecture made of silky, smooth reinforced glass. One of the nice things about glass toys is that you can heat them or cool them for temperature play. Simply submerge the toy in warm water, or cool it in the fridge for 10 minutes before use. Be sure to test the temperature on your arm, before directing it towards more intimate areas. Because it’s made of nonporous glass, it’s also 100% body-safe and compatible with any lube you choose.
The Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo is 8.75 inches long, with 8.56 inches of insertable length. So, this is not a small toy. It’s pleasantly large. It has a slightly curved shaft and bulbous head for g-spot or p-spot stimulation. Because it has a flared base, you can also use it anally. However, because of the length I wouldn’t recommend this for beginner’s anal play.
Overall, I was really impressed with the quality of this toy, especially given the reasonable price point. The glass is super sturdy and soft to the touch. The toy even comes with a soft, velvet carrying case that’s trimmed in a hot pink ribbon tie.
If you’ve never used a glass toy before my advice would be this: a) do it! The sensation feels really different than most other toys and b) use lots and lots of lube. Need some lube suggestions? Any of the ones in my condom and lube sampler pack rock. I’m also a huge fan of Hathor Aphrodisia.
Personally, I really enjoy it when other people use glass toys on me, so the last time I saw the European before he moved away, we experimented with the Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo or as I like to call it “the big icicle penis” with very positive results. The bulbous head feels great against the g-spot, especially when you move it in and out using a circular motion.
Overall, the Lovehoney Curved Realistic Sensual Glass Dildo
makes a sexy and unexpected gift for couples or individuals who are looking to try something new or have always fantasized about giant icicle penises (hey, I can’t be the only one.)
In fact, this is such a gorgeous toy that I kind of want to just leave it out on my desk so I can look at it while I work (yes, it stands up on it’s own!) It’s icicle like appearance also makes it perfect for creating sex positive holiday scenes that are sure to alienate your friends and family for years to come. Nope, nothing weird about this. Nothing at all…
2. Lovehoney Open Back Sheer Lace Panties with Straps
– Exciting news! Lovehoney, the people who made two of my favourite vibrators
have launched their own line of sexy lingerie
. They sent me this pair of these open back underwear
from their “Love Me” line to share with you guys. Let me just put this out there: I totally get that these underwear are not for everyone.
However, I’d never seen anything like them before, so I knew I had to try them.
I know what you’re probably thinking: “What the heck are those?!”
