Athena Glass Dildo from Babeland

“Oh look, it’s ready for bed,” pointed out my partner after I shoved my brand-new, unopened Athena Glass Dildo from Babeland across the table to him.  I peered over to see what he was talking about.

Turns out that Athena nestles into a form-fitting piece of foam layered with a silky white drape.  Atop Athena rests a pink cloth meant for polishing the toy.  He had it tucked up around the toy’s midsection.  Taken as a whole Athena looked look like a slender blue snake put down for a nap.  Or tucked away in a coffin.  Er, let’s stick with the napping idea, shall we?

Out of the box you’ll notice Athena’s rich blue color (Babeland shows it only in pink at the moment) accented by a swirly white “L” on the toy’s larger end.  The piece is elegant, simple and gorgeous, with looks nondescript enough that it could be displayed as an art piece.

It’s also enormously functional.  The small end is a good size for an anal novice, and super-slippery glass means easy entry for anyone.  Athena’s boomerang-like curve allows the toy to be angled quite well during self-stimulation or with a partner.  Lots of other glass toys feature ripples, swirls and nubbins; Athena’s simplicity is a nice contrast to other busier products.

The manufacturer, Luxotiq, recommends washing this lovely glass dildo in warm water with antibacterial soap, or rinsing with a 10% bleach solution if sterilization is required.  They advise against cleaning the toy in a dishwasher.

Buy Athena if you like low-key, classic design in your sex toys.  And make sure to tuck it back into bed after every use.
