 What is Borosilicate Glass?

Borosilicate Glass is a very specific glass composition that is 8-10 times stronger than regular glass. Borosilicate is the only ISO certified, medical grade, pharma grade glass that should be used for adult toys as it is body safe.  Regular glass, tempered glass, soda lime glass is all inferior for strength, safety, and cleanliness and must be avoided at all costs.

 

Are Glass Dildos really safe for sex?!

Absolutely! They are very strong, very easy to keep clean, and will outlast, outperform, and outsatisfy any other form of Dildo you can find.

 

Does Just Add Flesh sell hollow or liquid filled glass?

Never, never, never! There are many 'glass' products out there that are no more than an outer glass shell with liquid or gel inside. Some claim this is done for extra sensation, pleasure, etc. But the fact is that these can be machine made (rather than handmade like good quality Borosilicate Glass Dildos) and as such are much cheaper to produce. Because they are not solid they are prone to damage and breakage. They are far more sensitive to temperature than solid Borosilicate dildos. Bottom line... not safe. You do NOT want to buy low quality glass products.

 

Why are Glass Toys becoming so popular?

There are so many reasons for the growing popularity of Borosilicate Glass Dildos: 

  • They can last forever.
  • They are easy to clean, chemical resitant, odor resistant.
  • The sensations from glass, its weight, its varying shapes is unlike any other 'toy' experience.
  • Glass enhances orgams due to their rigidity.
  • Glass cannot be surpassed for G-Spot play.
  • Glass Dildos can be warmed or cooled for a variety of sensations.
  • People are discovering that unlike many other toys, Glass Dildos are one of those 'staple toys' that one never grows tired of (much like your favourite little vibrator).
  • They are visually stimulating, artful even. You don't need to hide your Glass toys as you might your other naughty bits. Some people actually display them!
  • Because they last long after you throw away other toys, the value of Glass Dildos is actually quite exceptional.
  • And the list goes on and on... bottom line is that the sale of Glass Toys is growing exponentially driven by people who try one, then find they'd like to collect many!

 

Each piece is just a little bit different? Why?

Unlike most adult toys, Glass Dildos are HANDMADE. That's right. A real human carefully crafts every single piece that we sell. And because they are made by hand it is only expected that no two pieces will be exactly alike. This is part of the beauty of Glass. While many people might buy the same 'design', just like handmade jewellery or art, no two pieces will ever be exactly identical.

 

Can I warm or cool Glass Dildos?

Absolutely. While Borosilicate Glass is meant to deal with extreme temperatures, there are still a few guidelines to follow: 

  • Warm your Glass Dildo with warm or hot water right out of the tap. 2-5 minutes does the trick depending upon the size of the piece. Using hot water ensures that the piece is never uncomfortable and is equally warmed. Do NOT put your Glass Dildo in the microwave. It is safe for the toy, but not for you. Microwaving tends to cause hot spots, so while one part you hold might feel just fine, another part that touches your very sensitive skin might be hot enough to cook food! You do NOT want to explain that in the emergency department. :-)
  • Cool your Glass Dildo with cold water or ice water. (And yes, you can dunk a piece that is hot straight into ice water without any problems). However, do NOT put it in the freezer. Yes, it is Borosilicate, it is freezer safe, but YOU are not! Cold, dry, frozen glass tends to get stuck to warm, moist places. Get the picture?

 

WHY would I warm or cool my Glass Dildo?

Most people don't consider temperature play with toys because few are suited. Glass dildos are perfect for temperature play. So, to the question... why? 

Why would I warm a glass dildo?

  1. Warm feels good... it feels inviting. That is just a given.
  2. ANYWHERE you touch with a warm glass dildo will become sensitive much more quickly because warmth helps the area to engorge with blood quicker. Used externally on the clitoris or labia, both will swell faster and self-lubricating will begin much faster. Used on the G-Spot, the additional warmth will make you more sensitive there quicker.

Why would I cool a glass dildo?

  • Once you've been playing awhile, and you already have sensations of being warm, flushed, hot even, the 'shock' of the cold is quite delightful for most. It's a lot like ice cube play. You'd rarely use cold right out of the gate, but during play it is very erotic.
  • Any place that you touch with a cold dildo will 'settle' so to speak as blood vessels constrict and nerves are calmed. A cold dildo can be like a 'reset button' for the clitoris. Many woman who find themselves too sensitive after an orgasm find that cold puts them back in the mood to play hard again very quickly.

 

Will my toy break?

Under normal use and with proper care, no, your Glass Dildo is not going to break. Most pieces can actually withstand a fair bit of bumping, dropping, even tossing around the bedroom without any problem. Borosilicate does not shatter like regular glass and it is many, many times stronger. It is considered a 'Medical Grade Glass'. However, if you drop it on a hard surface, then it still can break, and will typically snap in two so the evidence of damage is absolutely clear. If you ever chip or break your piece, be sure to dispose of it right away (and try not to cry while you wait for your new one to arrive).

 

What about sensitivities and allergies?

This is another area where Glass Dildos leave all other toys in the dust. Because they are not pourous they are easy to clean and are hypoallergenic, totally safe for people with allergies or sensitivies to just about anything. They are, in fact, recommended by doctors for just this reason.

 

But they don't vibrate... Now what do I do?

If you want to add vibration, go right ahead! A small bullet against the clitoris while using your glass internally is AMAAAAZING. If you like, put a vibrating cock ring on your glass toy. Because the glass is ridgid, the vibration, while putting the clitoris in a very happy place, also travels right through the dildo.

NEVER buy glass dildos with vibrators inside. The only way to get a vibrator inside glass is to either make the glass hollow OR cut a shaft into the base of the dildo. Either one dramatically weakens the glass and makes it much weaker. We will never sell such stuff.

 

Are the colors safe for use?

Yes. Any of our pieces with color have that color embedded right into the glass, not at the surface. You should definitely avoid any glass toys that have color that is painted or glazed onto the surface as many of the hypoallergenic properties are sacrificed. All of our toys are completely safe in this regard.

 

What lubricants should I use?

Again, with the nonporous quality of Glass Dildos, any sex lubricant will do as nothing will be absorbed by the piece. In fact you will find that you typically require less lubricant than you might use with other toys, and often you'll need none at all.Having said that, make sure that you use a safe and appropriate lubricant. For vaginal use, a water / glycerin based lube is best. Always try to buy good quality as you don't want to be introducing chemicals or extra sugar to your vagina. For anal use, again always buy good quality, and look for a glycerin / silicone blend which is better suited for anal play. Avoid the 'desensitizing' creams and lubes. Check out our lubes section for much more information.

Why are Glass Dildos more expensive than other dildos?

That one is easy. Glass Dildos can be more expensive than 'traditional' material dildos because they are made by hand, not by a machine. They are a form of art, not a hunk of silicone or rubber. But while you may pay a little more upfront for your piece, it can last forever. And when you consider an item you will have in your drawer for decades, the actual cost becomes much less than most any other alternative you might chose. Glass Dildos are, hands down, the best value in adult toys today.

 

How should I clean my Glass Dildos?

Caring for your Glass Dildo is very easy. But if you take proper care of your collection, they can last a lifetime. Here are a few suggestions for cleaning and caring for your Glass toys.

  • You can clean using any toy cleaner according to the cleaner's directions. Our favorite cleaner are the AfterGlow Toy Wipes.
  • You can clean using antibacterial hand soap or dish soap (this is probably the best way). Just be sure to rinse the toy well with warm water after washing.
  • Your Glass is dishwasher safe, so feel free to run it through! Again, a good rinse with warm water will make sure that no soap or other residue is left behind.
  • If you've not used your toy in awhile, be sure to rinse it off with warm water before use (just to be sure it's still clean).
  • If you cool or warm your toy, have fun, but remember to be gentle. A bowl of warm/hot water or cool/cold water is the best way to go. Avoid extremes like microwaves, boiling, ovens, blow torches, blast freezers, snow, etc. Borosilicate does stand up to the extremes but there are limits for both your toy and yours and your partners 'sensitive' areas.
  • When not in use, ALWAYS store your Glass Dildo in the provided pouch to prevent your collection from colliding. Bumping glass against glass can cause small marks in the surface, or in a really bad collision, cause your Glass art to break (and we don't want that). Alternatively, feel free to leave your pieces out on your bedside table, dresser, or even the mantle over your fireplace (you think we're kidding?! Some pieces are so amazing that they are as beautiful as art as they are as a toy!).
