So your partner mentioned a glass sex dildo as a fun addition to your bedroom fun. But glass? That's a new one on you! Are glass dildos safe to use? Are they breakable?
Glass dildos have such a unique and alluring look, but many people are afraid of using them because they are afraid that they might break.
Today, we step into the stimulating world of glass dildos and discuss whether they’re safe to use, and how to make the best choice. We also share some advice on how to take the best care of your glass dildo so that you can enjoy it for a long time.
Let's get started.
Why Are Glass Dildos So Popular?
Glass dildos provide a super firm stimulation, which allows you to use pressure. This is great because the vagina, as well as the inner part of the anus, responds well to pressure. Because of the firm massage, glass dildos are great for G-spot stimulation as well as A-spot and prostate stimulation.
This is why they're so popular: They can be used by literally anyone.
And the firm stimulation is alluring to many.
If you have used anal and G-spot stimulation sex toys in the past and they haven't done anything for you, then maybe glass dildos will do the trick because of the firm manual massage.
Another fun aspect of glass sex toys is temperature play. You can use the glass dildo, warm or cold, and experiment with different sensations.
Since the material is glass, you can even use whatever lube you like because it won't harm the material of the dildo.
So Are Glass Dildos Safe To Use?
We understand that putting a glass toy in your body can sound terrifying if you’re new to this, but we can guarantee you that it is totally safe.
When glass dildos are made, they go through an annealing process. This process helps to reduce stress within the glass, making it more resilient and less prone to breaking. Most glass dildos go through this process, so we want to assure you, that the chances of them breaking inside you are extremely low.
Another factor that makes glass dildos safe is that glass is non-porous and hypoallergenic. It is also easy to clean, so you don't have to worry about bacteria or dirt building up and causing infections.
Let's look at the different types of glass that the dildos are made of and why they are considered safe.
Different Types of Glass Dildo Material
There are two main types of glass used to create glass dildos.
Most dildos are made from this type of glass. You might recognize it as the glass that Pyrex was once produced from. This glass is incredibly robust, scratch-resistant, and can endure extreme temperatures. It can withstand temperatures up to 300ºF before it begins to crack!
Soda Lime Glass
This type of glass is commonly used in windows, glass containers, and other applications. Although not quite as strong as borosilicate glass, it is still very durable. However, it is not quite as resistant to sudden temperature changes. Despite this, it is still quite tough and can withstand much wear and tear. It is also totally safe to use in sex toys.
How Do You Know If Your Glass Dildo Is Real?
The following are ways that you can ensure that the glass dildo is real.
- To buy the glass dildo from a reputable and trustworthy store.
- Brand transparency - The brand should be clear about the glass type so that you can ensure it is real and made from the right material.
- You get what you pay for. Cheap glass dildos will not live up to the standards of expensive glass dildos. So going cheaper in these situations is not the best choice.
- Avoid shopping for glass dildos at Wish, Amazon, and AliExpress stores. They get their sex toys from everywhere, so there's no way of knowing what their glass dildos are made of.
- Check your glass dildos for scratches or cracks before you use them.

Cleaning of Glass Dildos
When it comes to the hygiene aspect, glass is one of the best materials to use for sex toys. Glass dildos don't have any holes, which means that no dirt or germs can get trapped. They are body-safe, and you don't have to worry about them causing infections or throwing your pH off balance.
Cleaning your glass dildos is super easy. All you need is warm water and some antibacterial soap. Cover your glass dildo in soap, wash it down real good, and make sure to get all the textures and areas. When you're done washing it, rinse it well and leave it to dry. You can either pat it down with a clean cloth or let it air dry.
Disclaimer: Please take note that if your glass dildo gets scratched or cracks, it is no longer safe for you to use. Bacteria and nasty things can cling to the cracks and scratches, and you don't want this near your private parts. The scratches and cracks weaken the glass even further making it more likely to break.
Storage of Glass Dildos
To prevent your glass dildos from damaging if you're not using them, store them away in a box or pouch. Some glass dildos also come in their own storage bag.
Summary: Are Glass Dildos Safe?
Yes, glass dildos are safe to use, as almost all of them undergo an annealing process. This reduces stress within the glass, making it more resilient and less prone to breaking. But you must ensure you buy them from reputable and trustworthy companies.
The design of the glass dildo also makes it safe to use as it is non-porous, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean, so you don't have to worry about germ build-up.
Taking good care of your glass dildo is also an important factor. Make sure to clean it before and after each use and to store it away in a safe space when you're not using it. When you notice any scratches or cracks on your glass dildo, stop using it because it's not safe anymore.
