Dildos! I’ve come to recently think of them as an underappreciated toy. Why? They have some really great features that vibrators sometimes lack.

-they are available in all budgets

-they are available in numerous finishes, shapes, lengths, and girths

-they are silent

-they don’t need to be charged

-if you care for your dildo properly, it will last forever

So yes, my toy box now has a couple dildos in it and I’m the better for it! One of my favorites is from Blown and is made of glass. This one happens to be clear, thick, and swirled. While it doesn’t pack the punch of a vibrator, the swirls are a nice feature if you are choosing to use it externally to rub over the clit. Mine has a gentle curve, so it’s easy to access the G-spot.

Another great feature with a glass dildo is that they are great for temperature play. You can heat or cool them for added fun.

Glass is non-porous, so these can be sterilized, which means they can be used by more than one partner.

And, for me personally, I have found that switching out a vibrator every now and then for a dildo forces me to pay attention and listen to my body in a way that I don’t with a vibrator. As a result, I’ve experienced some very intense, spiritual orgasms from a dildo, which surprised me.

Check out the video for more, and consider adding a dildo to your toy box!
