glass toys are annealed
Pyrex® glass that is hand blown using patented designs
called Borosilicate. They are handmade in the United States,
properly hardened and are fully crafted for both intimate
and aesthetic enjoyment.
nontoxic glass dildos are also lead free and we do not use
spray paint like some competitors who have them made in
China which may contain toxins. Our glass sex toys are made
right here in the USA and are created by Master Glass Artisans
who make each glass dildo with the artistic beauty and safety
you deserve. Because they are handblown no two erotic art
objects are ever exactly the same.
glass used to be strong and safe but the name Pyrex®
really does that mean much these days as the patent and
trademark was sold along with Corning to World Kitchen and
some Pyrex® glass isn't actually quality glass anymore.
In fact, when tested, old Pyrex® vs. new Pyrex®
shows that there is a lot of stress on the glass meaning
it is weak. Most educated glass makers these days will not
have many positive things to say about the brand Pyrex®
when talking about it as the glass itself. What is really
important is how the glass is cured and if it is annealed
properly which is what truly contributes to making a safe
and strong glass sex toy.
are some shady companies pretending to offer education to
consumers and promising their products are safe when they
actually are of very poor quality. In some cases they even
go so far as to claim that cheap glass dildos are made from
the same glass windows are typically made out (most often
called Float Glass). These companies warn of how these sex
toys will easily break into tiny bits and pieces, but these
claims are extreme and false scare tactics. The truth is
that while there are cheap glass sex toys that will crack
under stress they are not made of the same glass as windows.
What is interesting is that when tested, many of these companies
that use such overt scare tactics actually have their glass
sex toys fail basic stress tests when examined with a polariscope
(a device that uses polarized light for material stress
identification) thus, meaning they are essentially misleading
their customers to think that because they do not use window
glass their products their glass sex toys are durable when
they are not.
annealed Borosilicate Shott brand glass that our glass dildos
are made with is slick, smooth and holds heat or cold nicely.
It is dishwasher safe, microwave safe and has very strong
durability. You can make these toys nice and warm to mimic
a lover, or cold to create some interesting stimulation
on various body parts. You can even keep hot water or ice
near the bed to alternate. Keep in mind no matter how strong
glass is that you have to gradually warm and cool them or
they can crack when exposed to extreme swings in temperature.
Our glass has no pores and absorbs nothing so when sanitized
it is unable to transmit STDs, bacteria or smell. It does
not stain and is not only a durable toy that will last a
life time but is also quite beautiful.
Is Proper Annealing So Important?
is essentially the process in which a glass sex toy is cooled. Remember,
that glass has to be created in very high temperatures (over 1000
degrees Fahrenheit) and then to cure properly they have to very
slowly be cooled at a precise rate. In order to do this it takes
time and money because you cannot quickly mass produce glass toys.
This is why cheap glass sex toys are so dangerous because mass production
in China does not take the time to anneal a glass toy properly meaning
the glass is dangerous to use inside the human body as it may break.
Colored Glass Sex Toys Safe?
if it is done correctly. The safe way that color must be applied
is by using a colored glass that is added inside the clear Pyrex
glass. However, there must be a thick layer of the Pyrex glass that
is added to coat the color in order to make it safe to use for durability
purposes as well as for the optimal hygienic purposes. Only Master
Glass Artisans understand how to achieve this and anything less
than these methods can make the glass weak and certainly not safe
to use sexually.
German Schott Pyrex glass is so strong that we have actually dropped
it on to a concrete floor from 4 feet and it not only did not break
the glass, it did not even crack. This does not mean it cannot break,
or that you should try this yourself, however, we wanted to test
how strong our glass dildos actually were and we were rather surprised
at how much abuse they could actually withstand. You should of course
never use any glass sex toy that has a crack or is broken.
Beware of Glass Paint
Some glass sex toys are decorated with spray paint or brush on paint
on their surface or just below it, which is known as glass painting.
Glass sex toys such as these are not safe to use. They can be quite
toxic if used as a sex toy as the paint can contain arsenic, lead,
mercury, sulfides, antimony, chromates and many other toxins. You
most likely will not find lead in the cheap glass toys because leaded
glass is more expensive and therefore wouldn't be used but consumers
still have to worry about the paints and decals not to mention if
it is actually strong glass and if it has been annealed. Paints
can contain solvents that can degrade the skin and because the skin
is absorbent these powerful toxins can cause extreme tissue damage
and even cancer. Weak glass can crack and cause serious injury so
make sure that if you purchase glass sex toys that you know what
you are buying. Again, this is why we are very particular about
the glass dildos that we sell and have a limited selection as we
refuse to sell cheap, poor quality products that may break or cause
