Two years ago I was sent two very shiny, sparkly and beautiful items by a company I absolutely love, Crystal Delights, which contrary to their appearance, were designed to be used in the most surprising of ways.
With my love of the items being hard to miss, the folks at the company asked if I’d like to try another set of their creations; a Frosted Plug and a Frosted Dildo respectively. Of course I couldn’t say no, that would just be silly. So here I am, following up my Frosted Plug Review with my take on the Frosted Dildo… I gotta say, it’s in a league of its own, and pretty damn stunning to boot!
*You can find the original video review for my first two plugs here.
Unlike many other companies the Frosted Dildo arrived without a box, instead being safely cradled in a lovely padded fabric sachet and wrapped in lots of tissue. There was nothing on the fabric to say what the product was, nor was there anything that could cause embarrassment should someone find it. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if the nosy person prying into your business thought it was an expensive piece of art rather than an intimate accessory. Whether it’s the packing or the product itself, everything Crystal Delights does is definitely discreet.
The fabric was a wonderfully smooth beautiful black material with a metallic damask design and quilted black lining. After flipping it inside out I came to see that even the bag was well made with quite a bit of attention paid to the quality – no loose strings, no holes and relatively thick stitching. If you didn’t want to use the bag for storage of the product, instead opting to leave it out as an art piece (not such a far fetched an idea with a product this stunning) you could easily use it to store other things, whether they’re sex toy related or not.
I usually know exactly what I’m going to write when it comes to a product I love, without hesitation the words fly onto the page like my fingers have wings, but in this case, I’m surprisingly left grounded… and the truth is, I don’t really know why; the glass is luxurious, hand crafted and wonderfully textured, the sensations provided by the shaft are incredible, and the powder blue Swarovski Crystal gleams and sparkles beautifully… it’s a work of art, one that’s apparently left me rather speechless.
Regardless of my current state of mind, the following benefits and features speak volumes for why I love it so…
- Thanks to the tapered head insertion is surprisingly comfortable, and with the addition of a good lube, damn near effortless, gliding in and filling the area perfectly. Just keep in mind that the bulbous design really makes itself known during thrusting, with the rounded curves sliding across the g-spot and out of the body with ease, adding the slightest of pressure and most wonderful sensations of fullness in the process.
- Since glass has the ability to retain temperatures very well, it’s a pretty great option for varying sensations and engaging in temperature play. For those that really don’t like the feeling of something cool/cold entering them, simply holding it in your hands for a few moments, placing it in a bowl of warm water, or wrapping it in a warm/damp cloth before getting started will make a world of difference. *keep in mind I said warm, not hot.
- As expected there’s no ‘squish’ or ‘give’
duh it’s glassand the shaft, while rippled with lovely bumps, is sleek and smooth, with a slight bit of texture that lends itself well to the experience (trust me, you can feel it), whether used anally or vaginally
- On that note, the light pressure each bump creates coupled with the texturing is beyond extraordinary, especially during gentle thrusting, twirling, or while twisting back and forth. The feeling is indescribable… the best I can do is to say it’s like having your g-spot softly massaged by finger pads that know exactly where you like it most.
- Aside from being compatible with any kind of lubricant, it also doesn’t require very much, saving you money in the long run. Trust me on this, a little goes a very long way when it comes to lubes and glass toys.
- For those with sensitivities or allergies to latex, plastic, cyberskin or any of the other materials most pleasure products are made of, you shouldn’t have to worry as glass is hypo allergenic, hygienic, non toxic and non-porous, while also being phthalate and latex free.
As for the stats and specifics…
Like the previous plug I was sent, it’s not clear, instead appearing a foggy white that becomes close to transparent upon contact with any kind of fluid (pictured right). It’s this finish that gives it a textured feel while still being wonderfully smooth.
For those that prefer length over girth, the dildo measures 6.9″ inches in total length, with only 5.9″ inches of that meant for insertion. The head of the product is slightly larger than the shaft offering just under 5″ inches in circumference at its thickest. The shaft measures 3 3/4″ inches in circumference at it’s thinnest, and around 4″ inches around the bumps. The wide flared base allows for use anally if desired, while also acting as a handle during vaginal use.
Like every other Crystal Delights product I’ve received the surface of the Swarovski Crystal was smooth with no jagged edges, sharp points or cracks, no chips, bleeding of colors, nor any looseness… it’s definitely stuck in place (I’ve tried to pull them out of every one I’ve received, so far no luck, but many a chipped nail).
As for the actual Swarovski Crystal, it’s beyond breathtaking!
Being that the previous versions I received were all pink, or some version of it, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the powder blue, yet true to form the light opalescent blue shone and sparkled even in dim lighting, offering hints of green, yellow, purple, turquoise, and pink with the most stunning holographic effect. Honestly, the pictures I took just don’t do it justice, instead sadly making it look much duller than it is… trust me, it’s far from dull.
Quick Side Note
One of the questions I’m very often asked in regard to dildos is how they’re meant to be used, as in – how do I get myself off from something that doesn’t vibrate?
Here’s my answer: while it may surprise many of you statistics show that over 70% of women require clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm and no matter how hard they try, thrusting, insertion, the feeling of fullness or the g-spot play some dildos provide will simply not be enough. In fact, many women find they need to combine clitoral play with internal stimulation or intercourse to reach the big “O”. If this seems odd please know its normal, natural and nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Having said that, if you find that the stimulation these types of products provide just isn’t enough you may want to try something different the next time you’re in need of a fix.
Care & Cleaning
Since it’s virtually non porous, and therefore wont absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, you don’t have to worry about heavy cleaning; just give it a good wash with antibacterial soap and make sure to rinse it well. For the base (where the crystal is embedded) I’d suggest using a soft toothbrush to get into the area where the crystal meets the glass.
When it comes to cleaning the pouch you can simply give it a wash in cold water and line dry it. As for the material you’re looking at an outer layer of 60% Rayon/40% Polyester and an internal lining of 100% Nylon.
While there wasn’t anything to complain about there were a couple things I did want to mention as they may be an issue for some of you when it comes to the level of comfort you experience:
Because it’s a glass product with no squish or give you may want to be careful of any forceful deep thrusting as it might be painful and bruise the cervix (the same can be said for any hard plastic, wood, metal or other glass products).
Finally, because glass is very slippery when used with lubricant (or natural bodily fluids) you may want to be sure to grip the product tightly – very easily it slipped out of my hand on two occasions.
I’ve been a fan of glass products for quite some time, finding them to offer some of the best qualities around. Having said that, the Frosted Dildo by Crystal Delights is no exception; it’s perfect for vaginal or anal use, sports a textured and bumpy shaft that offers some seriously amazing sensations and stimulation, is a nice size for those that like length over girth, has a bulbous head offering an easy insertion and variety of sensations, while also being non porous, hygienic, hypoallergenic and non toxic… everything considered it’s one hell of a creation!
If you’re looking for a product that’s luxurious, unique, beautiful, and designed to truly make you feel special, you might just want to splurge and buy yourself something lovely. Go on, you deserve it.
