Beginner with Glass
While I am no stranger to sex toys and their ability to improve my sex life, trying a glass toy for the first time was a new step for me. I’ve tried plastic, silicone, metal, and aluminum before – but never have I experienced a glass toy. When I first held the heavy and smooth glass in my hands, I was excited but intimidated at the same time. Trying new things is what keeps our sex lives new and thrilling, but it can be daunting too, especially with a toy that seems so foreign and intense. If you’ve never tried a glass toy, listen up – because this beginner was in the same boat before the Red Cyclone Wand was in my possession. Don’t worry, I don’t bite – and neither does this glass beauty.

When In Doubt, Ask
When I was sent the Red Cyclone Wand as my first glass dildo, I opened the storage pouch, wondering if it would come with directions. The last time I felt like this was when I was handed a tampon for the first time at the age of 13. “You want me to put this WHERE?!”
Adding in something new to your sexual “rotation”, so to speak, can be a little scary… especially when that something is made of glass. So instead of just diving in like a rookie, I decided to ask advice from the person who would give me intelligent advice: The SluttyGirlProblems herself. Just as expected, she gave me some amazing tips and advice that made me even more excited to use my new Red Cyclone:
- It’s an extremely hard material and isn’t for everyone, however it is noticeably felt and not lost against your own anatomy
- Great for stimulating a stubborn g-spot
- It can have numerous sensations based on the texture that it’s crafted with
- Glass can be heated in warm water or chilled in the freezer/fridge for temperature play
To say that I was more confident and ready to get down to business was an understatement. The best resources a girl has is her friend’s ability to talk about anything, including your new glass dildo.
Love at First Try
Normally when I first receive a toy, I always use it alone before introducing it to a partner. You never know; the product could be awful and then you’re just the girl with a vibrator that barely vibrates – or lube that is sticky and horrible. However, with the Red Cyclone, I decided it would be a good idea to whip it out with one of my hookups before I’d even acquainted myself with it one-on-one. I must have had too much tequila that night and forgotten about my one rule.
My hookup loved this toy; the double ends, the way it was ribbed, and the ease of control were all positive factors to him. I loved the feel of the smooth glass on my body, and definitely gave ease to sliding it all over, which you can’t really accomplish with silicone. The texture was entirely smooth on one side, and a lined with bumps on the other, each of which gave a unique sensation – without being overwhelming, too textured, or uncomfortable. The size and shape was perfect for a beginner – it was slim, comfortable contoured, and easy to insert and thrust.
However, I quickly learned that using it alone for the first time would have been more beneficial to both parties – mainly due to user error when estimating the force at which to thrust. Saying glass is a hard material is an understatement and, if used forcefully, it can actually hurt (unlike silicone, which is much softer). Communicating that to my partner was easy, and he lightened up, but then he wasn’t quite getting to my g-spot like I craved. Using glass is a plus when you have a hard to reach g-spot, but it definitely didn’t go as smoothly with my partner as I was hoping. He was literally shooting in the dark.
The next time I laid down with the Red Cyclone, I was on a solo mission. I was easily able to control the amount of force behind it, and position it just where I wanted it. Knowing my own body as well as I do, I enjoyed it so much more than the first trial run. The hard glass reached my g-spot a lot easier and more pronounced than other silicone or plastic toys I’ve tried, and the ribbed sides added extra sensations. The more I use the Red Cyclone, the more I love it, and the idea of glass toys in general.
I also find my glass toys to be the easiest to clean. You can boil them, put them in the dishwasher, or bleach it which you definitely can’t do with other toys. It’s easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, and also completely silent so you don’t have to worry about your roommate hearing vibrations through your locked door.
Pros & Cons
- Great, simple, strong glass toy
- Perfect for beginners
- Minimal texture
- Double ended
This glass toy is perfect for anyone – whether you’re a beginner or simply want to add glass to your collection. As a beginner myself, I experienced a slight learning curve from my usual toys, but it was liberating trying something new. The curves and length make it easy to use, and you can quickly figure out how it feels best to you. Once you insert it, you’ll feel every inch of the glass against your skin. The best way to fall in love with glass is to use it, play with it, and discover what works for you. It’s not for everyone, but this inexpensive dildo with a simple design is the way to go if you’re wanting to step out of the box and try something new.
The Red Cyclone Wand can be found at Eden Fantasys for under $30.

[Writer’s Note]: A couple of weeks after writing this review, a sad tragedy occurred when I dropped the Red Cyclone on concrete and it broke into several pieces. After a few choice curse words, I cleaned it up and immediately knew I needed to order another one. You know you love something if it breaks and you automatically think about replacing it. Word of caution, try not to drop it straight on concrete because it will break. While glass dildos are extremely well made and aren’t going to break against your pelvic bone, they will break if dropped 5 feet from the hard floor. I am now sure to store my glass in safe place, even though is was my own clumsiness that caused it to break the first time. Don’t worry, I ordered another one and happiness was restored.
