Thanks to the folks at Sex Toy.com and Crystal Delights I was sent 2 of the most discreet and prettiest butt toys I’ve ever laid my eyes on. For a girl who’s seen oodles of sex toys, that’s saying something!
From the moment I got my Crystal Delights plugs out of the shipping box I was impressed; not only did they come wrapped in pretty tissue paper but they also came with 3 condoms, a packet of lube and a plush, velvety and padded storage bag for safe keeping. Quite a nice touch on their part!
As for the products, I was sent the handcrafted Red Magma (large) and Fuchsia (small) butt plug so that I could do comparative review of the sizes and get a better idea of the type of quality they offer.
Upon viewing them out of the package one would assume they are just like any other glass product on the market, however it is the bottom or base of these products that really makes them shine – literally!
Embedded in the base of the product is a shiny, sparkly, glittery and truly stunning genuine 100% Swarovski Crystal. Yes you heard me right, a Swarovski Crystal!! Talk about jewelery for your butt!
I’ll be honest, I don’t think there are words to describe just how pretty the plugs are in person, they really are stunning!
Besides being beautiful the Crystal Delights line of products are also possibly one of the most discreet. Not only do they not look like a sex toy but they are something that could be left out by accident (or on purpose) without the worry of raising any suspicion.
That said, if you’re like me and love sparkly, shiny, glittery or pretty things…you need one!
When I first got them I was slightly worried that the Crystal might fall out or easily come loose. However, on closer inspection (some picking at the seams to satisfy my curiosity and a broken nail later) I came to realize they are firmly in place. Rest assured they are not going anywhere.
Aside from that, I was also worried that the Crystal might be sharp and therefore dangerous. Yet to my pleasant surprise, even with the various angles on the crystal it is wonderfully smooth and soft; features that can definitely be credited to the quality that only Swarovski can offer.
As for using them, one of the great things with the Crystal Delights line of products is the wide flared base they have which allows them to be inserted anally without much fear of them “getting lost”. Aside from that, because they are non porous you can use them without the worry of them getting “dirty” or absorbing any bacteria.
*If you are going to be using them anally I suggest you use a very good quality lube as the anus, unlike the vagina, does not self lubricate which can make insertion rather difficult.
While most people assume that plugs can only be used anally I’d also like to offer the option of vaginal use. With its bulbous head the Crystal Delights line of products have the ability to provide great g-spot stimulation and/or pressure right where you need it.
*If you are going to be using them vaginally just remember; you can go from front to back, just not back to front.
Benefits of Glass Sex Toys
As for the actual plug, it is made of a beautifully clear, smooth, shiny and quite hard Pyrex glass; the same material that all high end, glass sex toys are made of. For those of you that don’t know much about Pyrex glass and the amazing benefits that come with it let me fill you in (no pun intended;)
*It takes more than 1,500 lbs of pressure to bend (snap) a 1″ bar of Borosilicate (Pyrex) glass. Crush weight is somewhere in the range of 8 tonnes!
*If you like the feeling of warmth Pyrex glass can be heated up in various ways; you can let it sit in a cup of hot water, place it inside a heating pad, place it your windowsill on a sunny day or held in your hands until it warms to your body temperature.
*If the feeling of something cold is more your thing you can place it in the fridge, freezer, let it sit in a cup of cold water or wrap it in a gel ice pack.
*Like high quality silicone, Pyrex glass is non porous which means it won’t absorb any bacteria, lube, oils, bodily fluids or anything else it might come into contact with. Suffice to say it is very hygienic.
*Because it’s made of glass (and is non porous) you can use pretty much any lube that you want without any fear of ruining it.
If you’re like most people you’re probably going to assume that because the plugs are made of glass they might be a tad dangerous; so long as you don’t drop them or slam them against a wall I (but really, why would you be doing that) they will hold up to quite a bit of wear and tear.
*The first day that I got mine I accidentally dropped it while opening the package. To my surprise and delight it was perfectly fine; no chips, cracks, breaks or damage was done. That said, even if you drop it, you might still be pleasantly surprised with its durability.
Also on that note, for those of you that are afraid it might break while in your bottom I just want to offer that Pyrex glass can withstand up to 8 tonnes of pressure, so unless your sphincter is the “Super Sphincter of the Universe” I think you’re okay.
In regard to the difference in size between the products I have this to offer;
When I initially got the larger one out of the box I was a little nervous and thought it to be rather big; measuring 4 ½ inches in length, the larger version is an inch and a half larger then the smaller version, coming in at only 3 ½ inches.
Other then that the bulbous head of the larger version is also quite a bit longer then that of the smaller version measuring 2 ½ inches compared to the 2 inches of the smaller version. For some of you that half an inch might not seem like much, but if you aren’t very experienced it can be the difference between pain and pleasure.
I also found that the connector between the base and head of the longer version was thinner but longer then that of the smaller plug which was much smaller, but a little fatter.
That said, for those of you that are new to anal toys or play I would suggest that you start with the smaller one, then when you feel ready to move up in the “ass toy world” purchase the larger version. Doing it this way gives your body the time it needs to get accustomed to having something inserted, making the larger version easier to use and less painful when the time does come.
Care & Cleaning
In regard to cleaning the plug nothing could be easier; wash it with soap and water, spray it with toy cleaner or wipe it with an anti bacterial cleansing cloth. No mater what you do you don’t have to worry as it won’t absorb any residue, nor ruin your plug.
When it comes to caring for your plug, just keep it safely tucked away inside the padded cover and it should be perfectly fine.
All in all I think the Crystal Delights plug is a product that is not only stunning (thanks to a gorgeous Swarovski Crystal!) but also very discreet, easy to use, body safe, environmentally friendly and made to last! Personally, I love them!
For those of you interested the Crystal Delights line of products can be purchased safely and discretely from both SexToy.com or Crystal Delights where you’ll find a large selection of Vibrators and other great sex toys.
