So here’s something a little bit different: A toy that’s made out of glass. Borosilicate glass, to be exact. Completely body-safe, doesn’t chip or break (unless you’re hell-bent on doing so) and retains both cold and hot temperatures. Having previously never heard of these kinds of toys, I was both surprised and a little skeptical. Sure, it had a lot going for itself in terms of quality and beauty, as well as the hand-made charm. But I found myself wondering if it would disappoint.
The Midnight Mint has 2 sides: 1 with a bumpy texture and 1 with a ribbed texture, which serves to ensure a bit of friction for a frictionless toy. If you do like a lot of friction then you might be surprised. One of the nice things about these body-safe glass toys is their lack of friction for those who can do without it. But the textured toys in particular can deliver a shocking amount of sensation as well. It’s also quite possibly one of the most accommodating toys yet. The smoothness of it and the textured variety makes insertion incredibly easy, even without lubrication. The strange combination of smooth glass, slight bumps and ribbing creates a fantastic effect. The toy slides in and out like a knife through hot butter but you definitely feel it.
I found I was not disappointed by this unique and creative toy. The sensations it delivered surprised me and when I weighed the pros and cons, the cons weren’t a deal-breaker for me. I would urge anyone curious or adventurous to try this toy. It’s definitely one of a kind and provides a whole new experience than others do. Another plus is the price; the glass toys aren’t much different in price than similar toys made of silicone.
I’m beginning to believe that it’s going to be hard for me to find a toy that’ll suit me well. The Midnight Mint was very unique in that it was made of glass and therefore could retain temperatures for a long time. I know what you’re thinking, “Glass? What if it breaks!? Ouch!” However, borosilicate glass is body-safe. It will not break. There are little flecks of shiny particles suspended in the glass that make it truly body safe glass. The fact that it’s glass lends stability to the Midnight Mint, while the bumps and curves are hard and unyielding which heighten the sensations. Personally because I’m so small and delicate, I found the Midnight Mint was too large to truly enjoy it.
The Midnight Mint and other borosilicate glass-made toys are available for $62.00 at the Traveling Tickle Trunk, as well as many other great sex toys!
