I do love it when my worlds collide at times. Just as I had been working on a number of posts on glass sex toys, A Touch Of Glass popped up on my radar. As I was building up posts to their products, I was offered to test one of their high quality glass sex toys. I’m not one to turn down a good dildo, so the Moody Blue was sent to me for a review.

phallic shaped glass dildo

The Quick and Dirty Stats: The Moody Blue arrived in the standard non-descript box just a day after it was posted out to me. Inside the glass sex toy was well packaged in biodegradable packing peanuts, sat inside a cloth bag and wrapped in plastic security wrap. I also got a lovely letter from the folks at ToG, thanking me for testing their toys. The toy itself is made from 100% medical grade glass – the base being made from clear glass, with the “blue” in the name coming from the vein-like design added to the shaft. Moody Blue is around 7 inches long with a slight curve. At one end is a classic phallic shaped bulb, and at the other a more spherical rounded shape.

Overall Feel and Fit: As the Moody Blue is a bit on the larger size, this toy was requested with me in mind (as the Mrs prefers narrower toys). We both enjoy being on the giving end for glass toys, so there’s no disappointment here! This is quite a heavy glass dildo. We have used mass-produced glass toys before, and this one definitely has a different ‘feel’ to it. The weight seems to be distributed better, and the glass vein detailing on the side seems to be better integrated into the toy itself. There are also no seams viable as is the case with a very cheap glass dildo we have. (Yes, ouch…)

Moody Blue Glass ToyUsability: I tend to use my glass sex toys at “room temperature”, which in the glass toy world is rather chilly when it comes to sex toys. Using a bit of water based lube, the toy slid in smooth and certainly filled me. Mrs used the “mushroom” tipped end on me for our first go with the toy. The curve of the glass dildo was put to good use, and the “veined” glass detailing on the outside didn’t go unnoticed. Since I don’t tend to cum from internal stimulation on it’s own, the Mrs used her talents on my clit, and I was cumming quicker than I had in a while. The second time we used the Moody Blue Mrs used the more spherical end. This was a bit larger than I’m used to internally, so we quickly changed back sides to the more phallic end.

Review Disclaimer – I was provided the Moody Blue Glass Dildo in exchange for a review from A Touch Of Glass. This review is my true and honest opinion in relation to this toy. Prices and exchange rates were accurate as of the post date of this review and are subject to change. 

Cleanup and Storage: Glass sex toys are about as easy as it gets for cleanup. If we didn’t have a toddler, I’d just pop it on the top rack of our dishwasher and set it along with the coffee mugs. But, since we do and he likes to “do” dishes, the Moody Blue got a bath in warm soapy water in our bathroom sink. I was slightly worried that as with out lesser glass sex toys, “gunk” would get stuck in the vein detailing, but this wasn’t the case with this glass dildo.

Value for Money: The Moody Blue sells for £35.99 at A Touch Of Glass with free 1st class recorded delivery shipping within the UK, £4.85 within the EU (about 5.75 EUR) and £8.50 to the USA and the rest of the world (about $13.00). Yes – this price is higher than you could spend on other glass sex toys, but you’re really looking at two different products – mass marketed imports will cost less, but they aren’t made as well and have questionable manufacturing processes. As is the case with a lot of sex toys these days, you always get what you pay for. In this case, higher price does mean higher quality, and you are getting value for money with this purchase.

Glass Dildos

My partner and I had been eyeing up Rodeoh harness briefs for quite a while. We both have quite specific tastes when it comes to dildo harnesses, and the Rodeohs looked like something that would tick all our boxes.

How specific? For me, I don’t like strap on harnesses that have a belt that doubles as a thong. I either prefer to wear those that look like shorts / briefs, or those that have leg straps rather than crotch straps. I also don’t really like plastic or PVC harnesses. That pretty much eliminates 90% of the dildo harnesses out there. (Mrs is pretty much the same, but isn’t so picky about the materials.) We recently sent our best shorts-style strap-on to harness heaven (yes, overuse) and we were actively looking for a new one. That’s when we spotted Rodeohs underwear harnesses.

Mrs picked out the Black & Red Brief that is the ‘classic’ Rodeohs style. After a few days, it arrived in our post box. The Rodeohs briefs came in their own little storage satchel as well as a pair of dog tags with the Rodeohs label imprinted. We had purchased a new pair of dildos for the occasion, and got right to work that night trying them out!

Overall Feel & Fit: Rodeohs suggest that you purchase a size smaller than usual to get a proper fit for use as a harness. Mrs did just that. Even though they are slightly smaller than her usual briefs, they were comfortable enough for her to wear around the house a few hours before we put them to work. We aren’t the ‘packing’ sort of lesbians, but if we were, these would be the kind of harness that we’d certainly wear. The materials are soft, without any pokes, prods or pinches that you can get standard dildo harnesses. Comfortable enough to wear as a regular pair of underwear.

Where can you get Rodeohs?

US: Angel’s Sex Toys has a number of RodeoH’s harnesses on sale, as well as the Tantus dildos that fit them very well.

UK: Lovehoney carries the briefs online, but you can also get them at the Sh! Store in London.

Usability: My only complaint about the Rodeohs is that the O-ring is not interchangeable. This isn’t a huge problem, since the O-ring that is in there is designed to hold dildos that are five to six inches long and one and a half to two inches in thickness – which pretty much covers all our dildos. You’ll need to use a dildo with a flared base for these. Getting the dildo inserted is a snap. Just pull the fabric to one side, push the dildo through the hole, and adjust accordingly. As far as using it during sex, my biggest worry is that it wouldn’t hold the dildo tight enough against Mrs’s body, and we would have a floppy dong on our hands. That wasn’t the case at all! The Rodeohs held our dildo in place well enough that the thrusting action felt natural, but wasn’t so stiff that there was no give or movement at all. The perfect combo in my book. We’re tempted to put a Vac-U-Lock base behind the O-ring and have a try with a few of our Vac-U-Lock dildos to see how they work out!

Cleanup & Storage: The next morning, I washed the Rodeohs by hand in the sink with cold soapy water (the same time I cleaned off the dildos). They are currently drying in the window sill, and look like they did when Mrs took it out of the storage bag. We only plan on using these as a harness and not regular underwear, so we are hoping they last us a VERY long time.

Value for Money: At the time this blog was posted, Rodeoh briefs were available from Angel’s Sex Toys for $50, and the jockey shorts were selling for $50 as well. They also have recently come out with a pair of lace briefs for $50. We live in the UK, and tend to use Lovehoney for some of our sex toy purchases. They are selling the briefs for just under £40. Sh! Women’s Store, a UK based female-only sex toy shop, sells a few varieties between £40 and £45. While that it a bit more than we tend to spend on stand-alone harnesses, we are going to make the exception with the Rodeohs. Not only do we feel that they are worth their price, we plan on buying a few more in the coming months (the next one being a pair of the jockey shorts).
