Review: Glass Dreams’ Sexy Spade

I review sex toys for sextoy.com. You can find the Sexy Spade and other anal toys on their site. Disclaimer: I am not paid for these reviews (unless you purchase something with an affiliate link) but I do receive free toys in return for my honest opinion.

The Sexy Spade, a glass anal plug from Doc Johnson's Glass Dreams line.

I’ve had this toy sitting unreviewed for a long time now; it was actually a toy I received during the first months after I began reviewing toys last year. I’m glad that I can finally give it a positive recommendation. Glass Dreams’ Sexy Spade, from Doc Johnson, is an anal plug made from solid glass with some lovely bands of color in the end. Though its material is remarkable, the shape is not — it’s a standard anal plug shape that looks a little like a spade from a deck of cards, hence the name.

Solid, well made glass is a great material for sex toys. It is non-porous, which means it is easy to clean and sterilize for safer sex purposes. That smoothness also means that it retains lube easily, and it is safe with all types of lube. It’s very safe inside the body as long as there are no visible cracks or other imperfections, which you should check for if the toy is dropped and before each use. I ordered the small version of this toy, which is an inch wide at its largest point.

So what kept me from reviewing it for so long? Unfortunately, even though I ordered the smallest size, this material is just too firm for me. When I tried it out on my own, I found it painful. So there sat the sexy spade for many months on my toy shelf until my pet expressed interest in it.

We played with this toy on her most recent visit to Austin. After she had recovered from a long and intense play session, I asked if she would be interested in trying out this toy and she agreed. In order to ease its entry, I had her use a favorite vibrator on her favorite setting while I warmed her up manually with some well lubricated fingers. We used Hydra lube but, as I said earlier, glass toys are compatible with any sexual lubricant.

When it came time to insert the toy, the Sexy Spade went in slowly but easily. My pet found it comfortable to wear the toy during the rest of our play session. The sensation made her giggle as she moved around the bed. When I penetrated her with my fingers or my cock, the added tightness from the widest part of this toy was noticeable and pleasant. If anything it maybe fit a little too easily — it came out abruptly during sex. Afterwards Pet said she was surprised at how good it felt and she definitely enjoyed the firmness.

Everyone’s taste in sex toys are different. If you enjoy very firm toys for anal play, then you might want to try a glass toy. If that sounds like a good idea to you then the Sexy Spade makes an excellent choice. This review was of the Small spade. Since this is a limited edition toy, you should buy it now if you want to try it because the medium and large sizes have already sold out!

    Funny I had a similar thing happen. When I finally wrote my review for this one, it was definitely long awaited, as it took me forever to get it into my body! It *is* a challenging shape and so very unyielding. I have the large…and it is massive and abrupt. It is a favorite now though.

    Now I wish I had the medium to use on my Pet. But I will probably try this small one again on myself someday…

    Thanks for your comment.
