Here is how to safely heat up or cool down your glass dildo.

Why a Glass Dildo?

It’s important to remember that these toys are not made from your typical glass material. Glass toys are often made from borosilicate glass specifically, which is stronger, adapts to temperature quickly, and retains it for a period of time.

Although it is stronger and often shatterproof, it’s still important to avoid any rapid temperature changes. We encourage you wanting to try both hot and cold sensations, just give the toy time in between to go back to room temperature before you switch it up!

Regardless of if you choose to heat up or cool down your glass dildo, remain cautious of the temperature at all times and slowly work your way towards colder & hotter temperatures. Before using the toy on sensitive areas like the genitals, check the temperature on the inside of the arm or wrist as you don’t want to risk burning or freezing!

A warm dildo can provide great massages all over the body, make insertion more comfortable, and make it feel more lifelike and natural!

To heat up your glass dildo, the best method is to immerse into a bowl of warm (not hot yet) water. Since the material doesn’t take long to heat up, you can take it out after around 5 minutes. With more temperature play experience, you can eventually use hotter water - even on the stove - just be careful when taking it out!

Cool it down!

On the flip side, give and get goosebumps all over with a chilly dildo! Great for use on other erogenous zones such as the nipples and the inner thighs, a cold dildo pairs well with a blindfold & restraints for a sensual BDSM experience!

To cool your glass dildo, the best method is pretty similar to heating it up - immerse it in a bowl of cool water for the same amount of time, 5 minutes or so. When you feel ready to intensify the chill, you can add ice cubes to the bowl of water and/or put it into the fridge - just consider the potential bacteria exposure.
