I went through a phase where I had to try every glass dildo that crossed my path. I tried bumpy ones, swirled ones, tiny ones, pointy ones, curved ones, bulbed ones, and even one with terrifying spikes on it. The last frontier was “juicer”-style dildos, so I tried two of those. Done with that conquest, I sorta ran out of ideas. And desire.

After some time away from glass, I recently returned to an old haunt: the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo. This is one of those toys that fledgling sex toy reviewers drool all over. I mean, this picture of all the different colors is like sex toy reviewer porn. I distinctly remember thinking, damn, I’ll never be able to get that toy.

Years later, I am badass enough that not only did Babeland agree to my request, they helped me avoid getting a pink or purple version (!). So when I unwrapped the dildo, I flipped my shit. It’s motherfucking rainbow-colored. This is the gayest dildo ever. It’s like a circus in my vagina. I LOVE IT.

This dildo is made by Standard Glass, a small Seattle company that handmakes each dildo. Mine is 5″ in circumference at its widest point, which is about 1.6″ in diameter — bigger than the large end of the Pure Wand by a very very small measurement. It’s made of soda lime glass — not Pyrex — so it is sensitive to extreme temperatures and quick temperature changes. It should not be boiled or frozen, but can be warmed or cooled with water.

Also, it doesn’t come with a storage bag of any sort. That’s pretty criminal.

I don’t know why I keep wanting to compare this dildo to the Pure Wand… wait, yes I do: because everyone else does. Many people call it a G-spotting machine. Reading the reviews, I started getting visions of Pure-Wand-like1 abilities, of the Pure Wand x2, of two bulbs sliding against my G-spot in a wave of exquisite and formerly-untapped pleasure.

It is not good to have visions like this, because, think about it: if this thing was better than the Pure Wand, we’d know it. The Feminist Porn Awards would be giving away Candy-Colored Glass Dildos and the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo would be in every Tristan Taormino movie. So guys, seriously, don’t throw the Pure Wand’s name around in vain. You need to really mean it.

The Candy-Colored Glass Dildo doesn’t feel like the Pure Wand. At all, really. Both toys may be heavy and gorgeous, but that’s where the two dildos diverge (in a yellow wood?).

The two-bulbed end of the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo is just not a very good G-spotting implement. Because of the length of the two bulbs, it must be nestled past the pubic bone, where space is limited and serious thrusting is out of the question. It can be rocked back and forth, or jiggled, but it still provides only minimal-to-medium G-spot stimulation (in contrast to the Pure Wand, which can be rocked until squirting ensues about 30 seconds later).

Why is this? I think because the curve is not drastic enough. Using the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo, I feel the urge to push the handle downward so the shaft angles more toward my G-spot. I had the same problem with the Eleven and the Vr9, and I don’t like it. I want to be able to just thrust aimlessly and have magnificent G-spot stimulation in return. What? I’m lazy.

This dildo does do one thing very well, though — it presses into the sensitive front walls of my vagina. It gives me a very targeted, full feeling. I have a lot of girthy, filling toys (uh, Outlaw anyone?), but this is a different sensation than being stretched, and I like it quite a bit.

Also, since I am thorough, I found that the slender but curved handle is a thrustable and comfortable G-spotter, and much more effective than the two-bulbed end. But I prefer more girth with my G-spot stimulation (see: the big end of the NobEssence Seduction, which continues to amaze me).

To say that the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo disappointed me may not be accurate — the word disappointment should be reserved for failures like the SaSi, Better than Chocolate, Form 6, etc. I was just underwhelmed by the G-spot stimulation; I expected more from a glass toy with such an enticing shape.

If you accept the Candy-Colored Glass Dildo for what it is — a mediocre G-spotter with a talent for stimulating the front walls of the vagina — then you’re golden. It’s a gorgeous toy; it’s comfortable; and it feels good… but it is not a G-spot god. There are only a few of those, and sadly, they don’t come in rainbow stripe.

Thank you, Babeland!

P.S. If you buy this dildo at Babeland, you can make a special request for color preference in the comments when ordering online (or by calling customer service to place an order).

  1. Well that wasn’t clunky at all… []

    When I saw you were going to review this, I read the Babeland page and thought I’d made a mistake in ordering the Beyond 3 for my girlfriend. After reading your review, I feel safe again!

    Pretty yet ultimately ineffective….. I shall dub thee “Meh”.

  • Navigator

    Ah, what a shame. It’s damn pretty, though. Wouldn’t mind one for non-g-spotting purposes (though admittedly I haven’t figured out how to g-spot in the first place), but that price tag’s a little yikes.

    It’s like a circus in my vagina. I LOVE IT.

    I giggled slightly hysterically at this, I won’t lie.

    Too bad it didn’t work out for you. It’s gorgeous, though. I’d just keep it around as an art piece!

    So pretty… sad it didn’t work out for you. I agree with Liz, you can keep it as an art piece, though.

    BTW, circus in my vagina? Brilliant.

    Now that I’ve read your review, I’m actually MORE enamored by it and want to give it a whirl. While I am trying to come to an agreement with my g-spot and would like to learn to ejaculate (in a controlled manner, if that’s even possible), I’m generally more into something which gives me sensation but isn’t a pound away toy when it comes to solo use or non-biologial stimulation. This intrigues me more. Thanks! Also, I’m right there with you on not wanting a pink one. The rainbow is lovely though!

  • Sarah Marlatt

    AWESOME DILDO! I just HAD to put this on my Amazon wish list!

  • Selective Sensualist

    OMG—this is absolutely gorgeous. I’m jealous, even if it’s NOT a G-spot god! I also loved the circus in your vagina reference.

    that is the baddest dildo EVER!!!
    i fuckin’ love it!

    This actually sounds more interesting to me than it did before I read your review. I have plenty of g-spotting dildos, but I don’t have anything that primarily stimulates the front walls of the vagina, and that sounds very enticing. Also it’s gorgeous.

    Dude that is so awesome they hooked you up with a RAINBOW one. Babeland is pretty wonderful. I’ve been curious about this dildo, as it looks like something I’d dig, but the color seals it. Rainbow glass! That is so awesome.

    I rather like pink… when surrounded by other colours. In the pink and purple saturated world of toys it gets kind of spoiled for me.

    I’ll keep this one in mind! If I get it, I want it to be orange, so I can be all patriotic with it. Plus, orange rocks.
