spartacus medium realistic glass dildo     I was really drawn in by the size and texture of this glass dildo. Patterned texture can sometimes be a little boring, but from the product pictures on Tabu Toys, I saw that the veins in the shaft varied and they were less uniform. I also imagined that the base would work great as a handle. Big thanks to Tabu Toys for letting me review this glass dildo. I know I’ve said in the past that realistic toys give me the heeby jeebies, but I think it’s more the skin tone coloring that creeps me out. The Medium Realistic Glass Dildo by Spartacus is crystal clear and really quite pretty. It definitely didn’t end up creeping me out, and I think it’s one of my favorites now.

     The Spartacus Medium Realistic Glass Dildo is just what the product’s name implies; a large glass dick. It has a coronal ridge, veins, a urethra, and a very slight foreskin. The texture doesn’t look too extreme in the photos, but it’s definitely noticeable since this is a glass piece. If it were silicone and the same design, it would be way more subtle. I don’t think the texture is too extreme for most people, but I have a bit of a bias since I’m such a texture fiend. If you find that the texture of glass is way too overwhelming, adding lubricant can help cut on the friction and make the texture feel more subtle. That said, the veins aren’t as prominent as I was anticipating. The coronal ridge and head are where the texture is the most severe, but it’s nowhere near as noticeable as the Icicles No. 18 or the Pink Double G.

     I didn’t find the texture to be any more hard to clean than other glass dildos with crevices. I used antibacterial soap and a wash cloth to make sure I got all the bits of dried lube and bodily fluid off of it. Since it’s glass, you can do the usual in terms of maintenance. Boiling (put a washcloth on the bottom of the pot so it doesn’t get banged up and scratched), 10% bleach to water solution, or rubbing alcohol set to dry. Going the extra mile with sanitizing is important when sharing dildos with partners or in between anal and vaginal use.

     Glass is compatible with any kind of lubricant you want to use with it. I usually don’t need much lubricant with glass dildos, but it’s the best opportunity for me to use my silicone lubes that I’m too paranoid to use with silicone dildos.

     It measures at 6 5/8″ insertable, the largest part of the head – the coronal ridge – is 1 3/8″ in diameter, and the shaft shrinks a bit to 1 1/4″ in diameter. The huge flared base is 2 1/2″ in diameter so it works great as a handle. It’s much head spartacus medium realistic glass dildoheavier than most of my glass dildos. I love how the weight feels when it’s inserted.

It doesn’t come with any fancy packaging or a storage pouch. The package is a hexagonal cardboard tube with the Spartacus logo and a picture of the dildo on the side. The packaging says it’s “lead-free borosilicate glass (Pyrex), tolerant of extreme hot & cold temperatures, dishwasher-safe, hygienic & nonporous, and compatible with all oil, spartacus medium realistic glass dildosilicone, water & gel based lubricants.” It also mentions that it’s handmade so dimensions and color may vary slightly.

     My favorite ways to use this one is to insert it shallowly and let the coronal edge run past my shallow G spot. I also like to insert it very deep and give it slight twists instead of thrusts. During thrusts I normally can’t feel the veins of the shaft, but giving it slight twists let me feel the veins and they’re so delicious during warm-up. Since I’m also fond of the heft of it, I like to leave it inserted while I use a vibrator on my clit. The weight is amazing during vaginal contractions right before clitoral orgasm.

Overall Rating: 4/5

     I definitely think this is a gorgeous glass piece. I’m surprised with the detail and texture. I can’t figure out how they did it. Most glass dildos are hand blown and just have a few bulbs protruding here and there along the shaft. This one is very impressive with the sculpted head and ridges. Only think I’d change about it would be making the veins more prominent.

    Oddly enough, I really want a glass dick now. Other glass dildos make me think “Aww, hpw pretty”, but this one makes my vagina take interest *laughs*
    Glad you enjoyed it, it sounds very pleasurable.
