So far I’ve used sex toys made from ABS plastic, silicone, TPR, elastomer, glass, metal, and now I can add acrylic to the list, thanks to GoodVibes.com sending me a Galaxy G Acrylic G-Spot Stimulator to review. This double-ended dildo looks like glass, but it’s lighter and very durable, which is a bonus for anyone concerned about using something breakable.

Galaxy G comes in a thin box with a nearly life-size picture of the product on the front and back. Even though I don’t have to worry about acrylic breaking, it can scratch, so I store my Galaxy G in a plastic bag. This material is compatible with both water and silicone based lubes, and it’s easily cleaned with soap and water or your favorite sex toy cleaner.

Even though acrylic is lighter in weight than glass or metal, it’s still a hard, solid material capable of applying serious pressure to the G-spot. It’s not nearly as good for temperature play, though. It does warm up and cool down a little, but it doesn’t really retain the temperature as well as glass or metal.

Also, while the lighter weight may be a huge advantage for some, as heavier materials can get a bit unwieldy during extended play sessions, for me I felt less full up and like I had to exert more effort to apply enough pressure. I think I prefer a little more heft. However, this toy still feels pretty dang awesome when inserted. Galaxy G‘s pronounced curve makes it easy to reach the G-spot, and it’s a great design for rocking, probing, and some gentle shallow thrusting.

Overall, the Galaxy G is an ideal beginner’s dildo because it’s a very effective G-spot toy that’s also modestly sized, affordably priced, and has two different ends to explore. The rounded head is larger than the tapered end, but it’s still smaller than the bigger ball end on a Pure Wand, and the curve is very similar. The tapered end reminds me of the teardrop-shaped head on my Icicles No. 21, but it’s smaller and slightly less pointy. In the video below I compare the Galaxy G to other popular G-spot dildos.

Oh, and for anyone new to G-spot exploration, GoodVibes.com also has a great kit available to get you started. The Oh My Gush! kit includes a Galaxy G, a 2 oz bottle of Please Liquid Lubricant, and Gush: The Official Guide to G-spot and Female Ejaculation.
