Pyrex: Not just for bakeware anymore

Dear Garnet-
A friend wants to know the benefits and safety of using pyrex dildos.
-Dishwasher Ready Dyke ;)

I know a lot of people's first reactions to pyrex dildos is "Eek glass! I'm not sticking that in me!" This is understandable, but there is no reason for this reaction. Pyrex is the same stuff they make glass measuring cups and bakeware out of. You can drop it and it won't break.

This does not mean you shouldn't ever inspect your pyrex toy for chips or cracks. You should inspect all of your toys when you clean them to make sure they are in good working order. However, a pyrex toy is going to last you a long time; about as long as your pyrex measuring cup. Many other types won't last anywhere near as long.

So what is so great about pyrex dildos? Oh gosh where to start ... Well we already know they have long life. They're also nonporous, meaning that nothing will get absorbed into the material (germies or lube) so it is easier to clean and you'll need less lube. They are glass so you can boil them or stick them in the dishwasher to clean them. Pyrex toys hold temperature so you can stick them in the freezer for a cool treat on a hot day or you can warm it up in hot water to match the temperature of your vagina/anus/mouth. They are harder than a lot of dildos, which could be good or bad depending on what you prefer. They are pretty and often look like pieces of art.

The downside is that they are expensive. However, with anything of quality you have to keep in mind that you get what you're paying for. The pyrex dildo is going to last you a long time so it may be worth a little more money. There are also a few pyrex toys out there that are cheaper. The simpler glass toys will run you around $45, which is comparable to most quality dildos.

Keep your questions coming! I'm enjoying answering them.
