There really aren’t many vibrators made in the wood/glass/ceramic area of sex toys. Edenfantasys decided to have their own line of products (the toy is made by Doc Johnson, though) and one of the first is this glass vibrator they gave me to review. It’s interesting. But am I gaga over it?
Nah. I could honestly take it or leave it.
Plenty of others love it though so don’t take my word as gospel. It’s just not for me.
In order to make a glass vibrator, it’s really just a glass “sheath” over a traditional vibe. This lends a unique appearance to it, as the color of the inner portion is given neat reflections and appearance by being covered in textured, clear glass. However, the vibrations need to travel through a lot more material to escape to your skin. While I wouldn’t say that this vibe is weak, it isn’t, it’s just not something I’m excited about nor is it going to get me off. Keep in mind that I’m pretyt pick though so it’s quite possible that many others could love it.
It’s straight and short (6″ overall, 4.5″ insertable), which in my book only a few sex toys can get away with being straight and short and manage to work for me. This one doesn’t work for me as an insertable because of the shape and the textures. Wow the texture. You can see for yourself here in the photos.
Because I really also like pressure on my clit along with vibrations, I wasn’t able to love the texture on the tip for use as a clit vibe, either.
Kissa is a simple, 3-speed vibrator. No (useless, IMO) patterns, just 3 speeds (1 AA battery, like a pocket rocket) which are controlled via a single push-button on the very bottom of the handle end. Depending on how you’re using the toy and how you tend to hold toys I guess it’s possible that it could get changed/turned off easily. Even though it’s a vibrator, it is waterproof. Just don’t go running it through your dishwasher like you would a glass dildo, lol. I did find though that it wasn’t particularly easy to clean around the nubs and the raised swirl. It required some attention to detail.
One thing that glass is great for is temperature play. Let Kissa rest in a bowl of warm (not hot!!!) water or icy water and torture pleasure yourself or your partner with a mix of temperature, texture and vibration. Since it’s glass, a little lube goes a long way (use any kind your heart desires). I’d say this vibe would be great for nipples, good for clits and insertable if you can tolerate the texture, but never to be used anally.
The color is pretty, I quite like the metallic look underneath the glass. The color is not, however, accurate if you look at the photos on the site. Their photos make it appear as a straight, powerful red – which metallic red, to me, is gorgeous. This is more of a…..mauve? Dusty rose? Unsaturated burgundy? But not straight red. Of course, my cunt doesn’t give a shit what color it is, lol.
One other thing that I want to mention is the packaging and extras. EF really did well on the packaging, I think. It’s not luxury nor are you expecting that. But there’s nothing cheesy or cheap about it. It’s a simple plastic bag with a colorful EF logo’d cardboard topper which gives a surprising amount of information about the toy. Would be perfect in a brick store. The Kissa also comes with a cute and functional black “velvet” pouch that’s sturdy enough to keep other items from chipping your glass vibrator. The closure is a really nice drawstring sort but with one of those plastic cord-clampers to keep it shut without needing to know your Boy Scout knots.
