Crystal Delights Twist review: spiral-shaped glass dildo
The Crystal Delights Crystal Twist stands proudly on display when I have friends over. I have no shame. Between its unorthodoxly sexy curves and iridescent gleam, it’s not hard to tell why I flaunt it as part trophy, part art piece, and part sex toy.
The Light Vitrail gem that came attached with mine (no longer available on the website) features a pearly green reflective sheen over a pink undertone and yellow and aqua sparkles. “Jeweled base” doesn’t even do justice to it, because that would lump it in with the cheap, flat-backed rhinestones typically used for princess plugs. No, this gem has dichroic facets and a base cut specifically for dimensional fire.
How does the screw shaft even work? It looks so uncomfortable!
It’s true: the Crystal Twist might seem a bit screwy to the uninitiated eye. It features a helix-shaped shaft that’s designed to be twisted, not straight in and out. The glass slides at a diagonal against my G-spot in use.
The helix is designed so that the pubic bone is encapsulated in one of the concave dips between each twist, each spaced 2 inches apart, while the convex part pushes up just a bit past the pubic bone, where the internal clitoris is stimulated. People with penises can use it for their prostates as well, but this review will focus on people with vaginas.
What does it feel like?
When twisting, the sensation is distinctly internal clitoral. That’s the best way I can describe how it feels to me. Imagine wetting your fingertip and gliding it over the rim of a glass to make it resonate and ring. Now imagine how that would feel, but with a very thick glass against your clitoral glans (or penis) instead of your finger. And imagine that internally. A persistent diagonal internal clitoral sliding. That’s what twisting the Crystal Twist feels like.
And despite the uncomfortable appearance, the twisting is actually surprisingly foolproof, even during partner use. My ex-partner’s actual words when using it were, “Wow, I have to twist it to thrust it back and forth. That’s so crazy!”
…to which I responded, “Well, you don’t HAVE to thrust it. It’s just that I’m grabbing on to it.” Clenching amplifies the sensation, especially when I cum. It adds to the easy buildability of the orgasm intensity. Even when it’s stationary, I love clenching and feeling each individual swirl press against my PC muscles.
“Wait… grab on to it.” He tried to thrust without twisting. “Now let go.” He pulled the Twist straight out while my vagina relaxed. “THAT’S. SO. CRAZY!’
To be honest, up until that point, it hadn’t even occurred to me to try thrusting without twisting. When I experience the toy that way, the sensation is distinctly that of the ridges pulling against my urethral sponge and front wall on the way out. It’s intense but, to my surprise, not uncomfortable at all, due to the combination of the smooth glass, the rounded contours, and the spacing between twists. As such, I can thrust with reckless abandon without the sensation being overwhelming.
Verdict on the Crystal Delights Crystal Twist
If you love g-spot dildos, glass, and ripples, definitely consider getting this toy. Everything else about the Crystal Twist, though, screams “sensual luxe” and is well worth the $115 price tag. Crystal Delights is a company that produces lasting, quality toys that users will enjoy for decades down the road.
