Glass toys? I have lived a sheltered existence.

I still think making hat racks out of them is clever, but 5 bucks is 5 bucks.

Reminded of this post about sex paraphernalia that rains down along the edge of highways.

If you have a battery-powered vibrator, buy a set of rechargeable batteries; standard batteries contain extremely toxic and corrosive chemicals.

Well yeah but so do my genitals.

Wasn't someone on Metafilter just saying last week that they (or a friend) super-glued a dildo on the handlebars of their bike, and now they don't bother locking it up cause nobody wants to steal it?

remember, you're making sex toys not digging ditches.

Wish I'd thought of this back when I was digging ditches.

It would be awesome if they came out of the coffee shop or whatever and there was another dildo super-glued next to it. Until eventually it was a shambling mass of dildo anemone swaying down the street.

My God! What did they do to that rabbit? How did they BREAK IT IN HALF???

Dispose of your dildoes as the vikings did: snapped in half and thrown on the pyre.

You don't get any Green Kink credibility with me unless you're composting your santorum.

Dick in a (mail)box?

Yes, but the real question is, will Americans want to take the jobs at the processing center?

(Reminds me of this article in the NYT about a fetish gear factory in Pakistan.)

As an American I can most heartily say I would take that job. I would probably go through a lot of rubber gloves. But that idea is nothing short of awesome.

That's a good logo.

super glue?! Why not melt the balls end just enough so you can graft it around your bike?

datawrangler - yeah, like you have corncob, meerschaum, or clay pipes glass pipes provide superior hardness, has a high specific heat so it stays cool/hot longer, and can be blown in very elaborate shapes.

Plus, it can be made to look pretty.

Glass is also really nonporous, so easy to clean.

That's a good logo.

This whole exercise was probably just an excuse to use that adapted recycling logo.
posted by Flashman at 8:46 PM on August 7, 2011


As I understand it, that "grind-all-the-plastic-up" aspect is part of EVERY recycling plant. But I love how they put that fact front and center for this: "We TOTALLY DESTROY the toy and melt down and reclaim the plastic, because otherwise, ewww."

I thought the vikings glued them to the sides of their helmets to prevent them getting stolen?

After a bad chemistry incident where I put a hot beaker on a cold counter I feel like any glass sex toy in my house would end up as a super funny story involving dildo shards and a lot of blood.

Glass dildoes are really the most beautiful of all sex toys, on the average. I've often thought of displaying some as art in my home to see who would look at them blankly, who would blush, and who would take me aside for some after-party arrangements.

I agree, although when it comes to the whole package (instead of just looks) I have a soft spot for metal.

Reading that sentence back it is very suggestive which was not my intent. Ah well.

If you feel like goggling, there is a video out there of a guy accidentally breaking a glass bottle in his ass.

That sounds like just about the last thing I'd want to use google for...

I always liked this toy. When not in use, it makes an excellent conversation piece for dinner parties.
posted by Blazecock Pileon at 11:52 PM on August 7, 2011


I'm going to sound a little naive here: Blazecock Pileon, what is that toy used for (or should I ask, what is it NOT used for)? Is it site specific or does it have multiple uses?
posted by _paegan_ at 6:43 AM on August 8, 2011


I'm not BP, but that's a butt plug with a handle. Basically, you put the more bulbous end in your butt (or your partner's butt) and then wiggle it around, or leave it there. Once you get the bigger part past your anal sphincter the tapered bit makes it easier to hold it in. The handle helps you extract it and keeps it from getting lost in your rectum.

I suppose one could use it in the vagina, but it doesn't seem ideal for that (your vagina mileage may vary).

One Guy One Glass (it was more of a jar, really, iirc) was pretty traumatic, but I once voiced "safety concerns" like the young rope-rider did to a then-gf who brought hers out and rapped it smartly several times on a formica kitchen counter to zero ill effect.

I suspect that that toy could be used as a pretty effective truncheon or at least, a blackjack.

Ah, never ceases to amaze me what gets filtered at work, and what just slides through. . .
