Every now and then you come across a sex toy which is too pretty for it’s function. I usually find these are glass toys and the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is one of them. Peepshow Toys sent me this pretty plug for review and straight away I felt it was too attractive to hide away!
The blue and white box the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug arrived in was nice and sturdy to keep the plug safe in transit. The packaging had quite a high end feel to it. Although, the product picture was on the front of the box unless you were very well versed in butt plugs you wouldn’t guess what this was.
Opening the box, the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is snugly nestled in white foam. This showcases the stunning colour of this plug to significant effect. The Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is a deep blue, which seems to alter in different lights. At times almost, a dark navy blue turning into a royal blue as the light hits it. It casts a gorgeous blue hue on everything around it as it reflects the light.
There is serious weight to the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug. This isn’t unusual in glass plugs but the size of the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug belies its weight. It’s a very solid plug despite being made of glass, please don’t think this makes the Genius fragile.
The total length of the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is 5 inches with 3.5 of this insertable. It’s not a huge plug in length but the girth is large at almost 5 inches around the widest part.
In terms of shape the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is all streamlined loveliness. The thick bulb gradually tapers to a slender delicately angled tip. There is quite a thick neck on the Genius and given that it’s made of glass I wonder about the comfort of this.
The angle in the tip is intended to place pressure on the G Spot or P spot making the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug universally appealing. I have to say looking at the style it certainly wouldn’t look out of place in anyone’s bedroom.
The Importance of Anal Flare
If you’re a regular reader of my reviews, you’ll know about me getting on my soapbox about the importance of anal flare. If you’re new here (Hi, btw and thanks for joining us!) then this is for you. When buying an anal toy, the most important thing to check after material is the base.
Anal toys can travel and disappear inside you if not adequately anchored by a good wide base. Unlike the vagina self-retrieval of anal toys is hard and can require medical assistance. This is an anecdote we could all do without. A great rule of thumb for this is the base should be the widest point of the toy.
The base of the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is 2 inches across and that’s perfect. There’s no doubt just looking at it that this is the widest part of the plug and I can therefore wear it in complete safety.
Unlike some plugs the base isn’t flat, it graduates down and when wearing it I found this was very comfortable. With a disc style base made of a hard material I sometimes find it cuts into my ample butt cheeks. Especially during prolonged wear.
The Wonders of Glass
Often people who are new to glass toys are worried about the use of such a fragile material in such a delicate place. Please don’t be. Although the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is indeed made of glass it’s not the same stuff your tumblers are made of.
Borosilicate glass is a very tough, hardened type of glass meaning it’s much hardier than normal. There is no chance of this plug spontaneously shattering in your butt or anywhere else you choose to use it. However, that said it can still be damaged by impact, so you do need to take more care with glass toys than say silicone or steel.
Impacts from heights or onto solid surfaces can damage your Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug. You should regularly inspect your Genius plug (especially before use) to check for any damage.
Despite this, glass remains one of my preferred sex toy materials due to its total body safety and temperature changing abilities. The Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is no exception to this.
If you enjoy temperature play it’s easy to change this using water. Place the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug into lukewarm water or cold water and it will adopt that temperature. This feels amazing when inserting the plug inside you, even more so when it’s being done by someone else.
Heating and cooling glass is easy but beware the temptation to put it in extreme temps or heaven forbid the freezer or microwave. This will damage the plug and possibly you. Not a clever idea so just don’t even try it.
I found inserting the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug felt amazing. As the plug slides inside me the widening plug forces a real stretch. Even for someone used to wearing plugs like myself the widest part was challenging. Although the surface of the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is silky smooth I still advise using lube. One of the wonderful things about glass is you can use whatever lube you like.
As the bulb slid home I was left with that wide neck holding me open slightly. This felt really good and kept me turned on the entire time I was wearing the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug. I did wonder about the comfort levels from this as I prefer a long slender neck on a plug. But, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
The small size difference between the neck and bulb made me think I’d have problems with keeping the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug inside me. This is an issue I find with plugs this shape. They tend to slide out of me when I move around as there isn’t anything to hold them in place.
I was impressed with how well the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug stayed inside me until I tried to insert something vaginally at the same time. One of my favourite times for wearing a plug is during PiV sex so this is a little disappointing. Perhaps a slightly thinner neck could solve this.
When wearing the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug you can’t be off it. It’s heavy presence and wide stretch keeps it in the forefront of your mind always. For me this was very enjoyable and kept me horny the whole time.
Despite the lack of yield in glass the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is very comfortable but not so much as you could forget you’re wearing it. I wouldn’t attempt to wear this plug outside of the bedroom.
Everything about the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug is elegant, the design, colour and style whilst the experience felt quite extreme to me. Its not a plug for beginners but if you enjoy anal sensation then you would probably enjoy the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug.
Thank you so much to the awesome crew at Peepshow Toys for sending me the Chrystalino Genius Handblown Blue Glass Plug to review. I was sent this beautiful plug free of charge and in exchange for an honest and impartial review.
