I adore glass toys, and love texture, so a toy that combined the two sounded fabulous! Tabu Toys sent me this gorgeous glass double ended dildo last month, and I have to say that I’m in love.
The 24K Double Pleasure Wand (referred to as the 24K Wand for the rest of the review) is beautiful. It’s a very light golden colour that reminds me of the gorgeous Depression glass my great grandmother had, only with a shimmery, almost pearlescent, sheen to it. Photos and words alone really don’t do this one justice, guys. It has two different types of textures: a raised continuous swirl on one end, and lots of little raised nubs on the other. The length of the 24K Wand is 9 inches total, and it has a diameter of 1.5 inches. Because this is a hand blown glass toy, some variations in the sizes is to be expected, so keep that in mind when ordering.
Taking care of your 24K Wand is simple. Glass can be boiled for 10 minutes to sterilize it, or wiped down with a 10% bleach solution. You can also put it in the top shelf of the dishwasher and put it through a wash cycle without dish soap, if the other two methods sound too complucated. For everyday cleaning, just use some sort of antibacterial soap and some hot water. I would reccomend storing your toy in a padded bag of some sort. Unfortunately the 24K Wand didn’t come with it’s own bag, so I improvised, and it’s being stored in a clean sock in my toy drawer. Also, you should always check your glass toys for any cracks or chips before using it, just to be careful.
I thought that I would love the spiral end of this glass dildo best, but it turns out that little nubbly bumps feel wonderful. That type of texture, combined with the slight upward curve of this toy makes for some pretty intense g-spot orgasms. I had to angle the toy a bit than I would with something specifically designed for g-spot play, but it wasn’t an angle that was awkward or left my wrist cramping. While the spiraled end of this toy is also textured, I felt that the swirls weren’t raised enough for me to get the sort of stimulation that I wanted and needed from them. I tend to prefer a bit more texture than the average girl, though. I do love the length of this dildo, because the extra few inches makes a great handle so you don’t get come and lube all over your fingers. (Personally, I don’t mind, unless it makes me or them lose their grip on the toy.) If you are using this during partnered play, definitely tell your partner to be careful. Thrusting too hard with a glass toy can lead to internal bruising, and a bruised cervix just hurts. I also experimented with using this toy for anal play, but found the texture and the material combination to just be too intense for me.
Overall, I give the 24K Double Pleasure Wand 5 golden paws up out of 5! I love glass toys, and the length and texture this particular toy has to offer makes it a great addition to my toy box.
