…and it was in my night-stand this whole time! Well, maybe not the whole time. More like a month or so. And it’s not actually Nirvana, but something damned close. I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here, but what else is new? Alright, before I get too far into this craziness, let’s get the old ‘opening spiel’ over with… I’m going to be reviewing (for your reading pleasure) the:
I’m a huge fan of glass toys, and I desperately wish that I owned more of them. There’s something so wonderful and unique about glass that just can’t be equaled by any other material. Now you might be thinking “glass, oh hell no! no was is something made out of glass going in my vagina!”. I get it, I really do. I was just like you a few years ago; skeptical, doubting, afraid. But I (and my vagina) have since embraced glass for the wonder that it is.
Glass is a perfectly safe choice of material (certainly safer than icky jelly toys). Glass is non-porous and can therefore be sterilized. The one thing you do have to be careful of when it comes to glass dildos is breaking them! I’ve heard horror stories of beloved toys that had to be tossed because they were cracked or chipped. While a glass toy is completely safe to use internally, a chipped or cracked toy is NOT. Luckily, most glass toys (including the Nirvana) come with at least a small velvet pouch to store the toy in. Some even come with padded bags, which is awesome, because you really don’t want these toys bumping-uglies in your toy-drawer!1 But still, be careful with your glass folks, especially if you love the toy as much as I love this one.
And how much do I love the Nirvana Cobalt? Let me count the ways:
1. It’s glass, which I’ve already stated is an amazing choice of material. Unlike silicone (which, obviously, I also love), glass slides with little or no lube and provides for a much smoother thrust.
2. It’s got these fabulous bulbs:
which feel absolutely amazing inside me. I love thrusting them in slowly, so I can feel each individual bulb as it slides in, opening me up.
3. It’s blue! I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this but I love any toy that’s not pink! Not that there’s really anything wrong with pink, I’m just annoyed at the over saturation of the sex-toy market with all things pink and purple. (It’s a not-so-secret goal of mine to own a green sex toy)
|Look at this gorgeous blue color!|
4. And finally, the price is right. At only $20, the Nirvana is fairly cost-effective. I’ve not going to break the bank, like some of my other favorite toys
Now, I’m not one of those lucky, lucky girls who can come from penetration alone (at least, not typically), but I feel like the Nirvana almost brings me there. While it isn’t at all curved, I feel like the bulbous end of the dildo does press lightly against my G-spot if I thrust at exactly the right angle. I wouldn’t recommend this as a G-spotting toy, it’s not designed as one, and doesn’t provide nearly enough pressure. But the light, almost teasing, touches are still very enjoyable. I think that’s one of the reasons why the Nirvana has become my go-to dildo for quick masturbation sessions. There’s not a lot of prep-work since I don’t have to use much lube (or any at all, most times) and it gets me off (in combination with a clit-vibe) pretty damned quick! I also occasionally use it for a slow session of thrusting and building up my arousal; my fiance certainly enjoys torturing me with it.
But maybe you guys don’t come here just to listen to me gush about my toys. Maybe you want some actual stats. Fine, you guys are really so demanding:
- Weighing in at ~0/6 lbs, the Nirvana isn’t exactly a light toy, but it’s not heavy enough that you’ll break your wrist while thrusting.
- And with ~5.25″ of insertable length, it shouldn’t scare anyone off either.
- The base is just about 1.75″ in diameter, and is technically anal-safe, though I am not quite adventurous enough (yet) to try it in my ass.
- The bulbs of the toy are all just about 1.125″ in diameter, and the depressions between them are 1″, which means that you can really feel each one as it slides home.
