Glass Gripper Color Wrapped Love Wand

Glass is an amazing material for sex toys. One reason it’s so great for sex toys is that it’s exceptionally slippery. You put a little bit of lube on glass and it’ll stay wonderfully slick ’til the cows come home.

But it’s hard to control where lube goes on a glass toy. Lube seems to have a magical attraction to the handle of a glass toy, making it easy for the toy to fly from your grasp–or at least to slide off-target right when things get interesting.

Imagine then my joy at finding a glass toy with a rubber handle. The Gripper Color Wrapped Love Baton from XXX Glass consists of a pretty glass dildo with an insertable length of around 6 1/2″. The dildo has a silky-smooth large head and a shaft wrapped with a thick blood-red swirl. The toy’s (non-insertable) base is sheathed in a rubbery handle with red and black stylized flames on it.

I don’t know…the flames are a little too NASCAR for my tastes, but I’ll forgive their NASCAR-ish appearance considering how wonderfully useful the rubber gripper handle is.

You know why a rubber gripper handle is so wonderfully useful? Because no matter how much lube you produce or slather upon yourself, you can keep great traction with this handle. My friend and I tested this quality of the toy very thoroughly. Lube, then more lube, then some gushing, then more lube, then more gushing, then even a little more lube (I love lube) and the handle stayed 100% slip-proof.

This is excellent.

The business-end of the Gripper Color Wrapped Love Baton is a work of art. You’ll have to marvel over its beauty before you even think of putting it to use. The head is really quite girthy, and the shaft’s swirl also adds an extra degree of stimulation. This is not a toy for someone who likes their toys on the petite side.

Inserted, the baton can apply a lot of pressure to the g-spot, which I adore. If you are a gusher, you’ll probably gush. If you want to be a gusher, the Gripper would be a great toy on which to hone your skills. Because the handle is so long and (have I mentioned it enough?) so very easy to hang on to, you’ll be able to reach your own g-spot if you don’t have a partner handy.

I worried a bit about clean-up with this toy, but it turns out that my fears were unfounded. You can remove the rubber handle for cleaning purposes. It’s not easy–but the toy wouldn’t be nearly so useful if the rubber handle came off too easily, right?

I suggest drying the Gripper as thoroughly as you can first. Then sit opposite from your partner or a sympathetic friend. Hold one end and let your friend hold the other end. Pull gently but firmly. Giggle a lot. Giggling is an essential step in the process. Eventually the rubber handle will slip off; it will likely be full of lube. You can clean and dry both parts individually before you reassemble the toy.

XXX Glass ships in discreet brown boxes. Each toy comes lovingly packaged with a protective corduroy pouch along with thorough safety and cleaning instructions. Remember that glass is very sturdy, but inspect it for chips or cracks before each use. Cool or heat your toy with the appropriate temperature of water (nothing too extreme, please, and don’t even think about freezing your toy).

If I were Tom Cruise and this toy were Katie Holmes, I’d jump on Oprah’s couch while shouting at the top of my lungs, “I love this toy!”

Would that be wrong, do you think?
