Hornet Glass Dildo from GlassDildoz.com

A big part of the charm glass dildos hold for me is the fact that they are generally gorgeous.  The crystalline glass, shimmering colors, swirls, exquisitely formed curves — all of these things make the sometimes hefty price tag on these sex toys worth it.

I’m sorry to say that the Hornet (available from GlassDildoz.com and manufactured by RubyGlass21.com) misses the mark as far as beauty is concerned.  I mean, I understand the look they were aiming for here.  Yellow and black like the nasty stinging insect, right?  But the yellow looks too much like watered-down tea for my taste, and the black seems matte instead of shiny.  Together the combination is less than appetizing.  Many glass dildos look utterly lickable, like a combination of jewelry and frozen adult beverage.  You just want to put them in your mouth.  The Hornet?  I wanted to wash it.  Repeatedly.

Also, I had a real problem with the Hornet’s base.  I’m not sure why RubyGlass21.com bucked the trend of putting disk-shaped bases on standing glass toys.  Instead, Hornet’s base is asymmetrical:  The side toward the curve juts out while the side opposite the curve is nearly non-existent.  Was this meant to make it look unique?  I suppose it does, but it also makes it mighty unstable.  Putting it back on the nightstand with shaky hands after use turned into a hazardous event.

Nevertheless, Hornet’s overall shape is very nice.  The curve allows the user great access to the g-spot, while the otherwise faulty base offers a good handhold and protection against the toy slipping all the way inside if it’s used in the bottom.  The swirls of black glass feel great entering and exiting (and entering and exiting again and again and again).

And like other glass products, Hornet is super-easy to clean.  Hot soapy water will do the trick for your standard every-day cleaning, while a trip through the dishwasher (top shelf, no detergent) will disinfect the toy if you plan on sharing it with another partner.

While I don’t find the Hornet particularly attractive, others certainly might.  In the words of the brilliant Benjamin Franklin, “Iin the dark all Cats are grey.”
