Shots Chrystalino Champ review: cobalt blue glass G-spot dildo
The Chrystalino Champ is the Jack-of-All-Trades sex toy I wish I had when I was younger. Especially now that I love penetration, I can truly appreciate this sex toy’s ability to hit so many internal hot spots.
This glass dildo, part of Shots’ Chrystalino line, is a sleek, S-curved, cobalt blue beauty. At the end of its 7″ length, the tapered 1.4″ diameter head features an intermediate between two common G-spot dildo designs: the flat hook, and the asymmetric egg-on-a-stick.
The moderate girth and shape make it a versatile beginners’ toy for a variety of internal erogenous zones, without being extremely specific to any particular one. You can use the Chrystalino Champ for exploring your G-spot, PS-spot (perineal sponge), and cervical orgasms via the PFE zone (posterior fornix). As well, its hooked end makes it safe for anal use.
Lovehoney lists the Chrystalino Champ as the “Chrystalino Pure Pleasure Glass Anal Dildo 7 inches,” but there’s no reason to not use it in a vagina. Just like how an anal lube is my favorite for vaginal use, plenty of dildos and plugs marketed for anal use feel great in my vag. I encourage you to drop your assumptions about what makes a vaginal dildo “good for beginners.”

Glass dildos for beginners are underrated
Maybe that’s easy for me to say because my first sex toy was a glass dildo. A glass dildo may seem intimidating, but I’d argue that it’s actually easy to use. For one, it doesn’t need much (if any) lube because the surface is so slick. And unlike hard ABS plastic, glass is boilable and less porous, making it one of many easy-to-clean, affordable options.
Not everyone likes rigid phalluses, but if you use common sense with a glass dildo, it really doesn’t have to be (super) scary. Steer clear of glass designs with thin pull rings, check for chipped surfaces before using, and stop penetration with the dildo if it’s painful. An insertable toy of any material could be painful if it’s the wrong shape or size, so that’s not a solid reason to avoid glass entirely.
Chrystalino Champ for G-spot sensation
The Chrystalino Champ‘s head resembles an elongated egg resting on a straight shaft. The long but bulbous design puts it at the middle of a spectrum between flat hooked G-spot toys, and the very common egg-on-a-stick design on G-spot exploration toys. I find that this combines the benefits of the extremes.
It’s precise enough that using it would have helped me find my G-spot when I was younger. I insert, pull until the head meets some resistance just past the pubic bone, and jiggle in place while clenching my pelvic floor muscles. That’s all there is to it. There are plenty of toys that can stimulate my G-spot now that I know where it is, but toys helpful for finding one’s G-spot are fewer.1
Comparison to flat hooked G-spotting heads
Flat hooked G-spot dildo heads, like on the LELO Ella and Picobong Moka, knead the front wall of the vagina, past the pubic bone. For many people with vaginas, this is where they can most easily access their G-spot and internal clitoris. However, this design focuses its stimulation too far past my pubic bone to work for me. The severe hook can also snag or grind on my pubic bone in a not-so-pleasurable way.
The Chrystalino Champ also kneads the front wall of the vagina, but its rounded profile offers more “oomph” where flat hooked toys usually miss. It also pulls on the urethral sponge with every out-stroke. Further, even if you like flat hooked toys, this dildo is still worth a try because it actually kneads more surface area.
Comparison to gently tapered G-spotting heads
And because it’s bulbous, it’s more intuitive than some more gently tapered G-spot toys. For example, I enjoy the JeJoue Uma for G-spot stimulation, especially with the vibrations on. However, my vagina has a tendency to suck the vibrator in so that the narrowest part of its neck rests at the tightest part, where the pubic bone protrudes more. This means that the G-spotting tip tends to go in deeper than my G-spot and there’s a little more resistance trying to aim it at the right depth. The Chrystalino Champ‘s neck has an easier time staying where I want it.
Overall verdict on the Chrystalino Champ’s G-spot stimulation
G-spot stimulation with the Chrystalino Champ is easy and simple, but not direct or intense. It’s not a toy I can easily tilt to push into my G-spot. If the njoy Pure Wand or Jopen Comet Wand was a 10 for G-spot intensity, I’d probably give the Chrystalino Champ a 4. It’s definitely not a single-purpose, master G-spotting assailant, but it’s much more versatile. That’s decidedly part of its charm.
Chrystalino Champ for targeting other erogenous zones
There are so many ways to use the Chrystalino Champ, with its ability to target other internal erogenous zones. This includes my cervical fornices and my perineal sponge (PS-spot). The design can be especially helpful for someone just exploring their vagina or anus.
The 7″ total length makes it long enough to stimulate the areas around my cervix, including aiming the slim, tapered head in front of my cervix. This is noteworthy because there are plenty of toys and penises that I love sliding behind my cervix, where there’s more room, but they just can’t easily fit or aim in front. With the bulbous tip facing my belly button side, it’s a no-brainer.

Perineal sponge stimulation
With the bulbous tip facing back, I can massage not only my posterior fornix, but also the spongy cushion of tissue in the wall between my vagina and rectum. This is also known as the PS-spot.2 Like the G-spot, it’s packed with nerve endings, becomes more sensitive with arousal, and is one of many potential areas to explore. It’s easy to find my perineal sponge when I think of trying to massage near my anus through the back wall of my vagina.
Pretty much any G-spot toy can massage the PS-spot if you turn it around, so what makes the Chrystalino Champ so special? The thing is, turning around a G-spot toy too heavily curved or bulbous can vaguely make me feel like I have to poop, which I’m not into. The Chrystalino Champ is one of a few toys that’s intense and specific enough for my G-spot while mild enough for my perineal sponge.
And with my posterior fornix (PFE-zone) and perineal sponge (PS-spot) sharing the same vaginal wall, a partner fingering me or using this toy facing backwards can glide over both erogenous areas with each thrust if I’m craving deep penetration. Its bulbousness also makes for a satisfying “pop” as the head’s entry abruptly transitions to the neck if I use it for shallower penetration.
This glass dildo is not only beautiful, but also versatile AF. It might not be the queen of G-spotting, but it is the Jack of All Trades that I wish I had when I was younger and exploring my sexuality.
My one major complaint is that I’m not super fond of the handle; it’s far from ergonomic and some may find it hard to grip. I understand that it’s designed more for anal-safe usage, but for vaginal penetration, I’d rather just have a more gently curved handle. A wider handle would also make it easier to hold on to.
More Chrystalino glass dildos
If you want to try a thinner, pin-straight and no-frills glass dilator to get used to penetration, Shots also makes the Chrystalino Tower. It’s the same gorgeous cobalt blue, body-safe, borosilicate glass as the Champ, but a dainty 0.8″ wide with a flared base. The Tower won’t stimulate your G-spot or PS-spot, but it’s a literally straightforward, solid dilator. You can also find even more of Chrystalino’s glass dildos and plugs at Peep Show Toys (see gallery below).
However, if you’re comfortable with penetration and looking to explore more, the Chrystalino Champ could be for you. You can find it at LoveHoney, where it’s longwindedly listed as “Chrystalino Pure Pleasure Glass Anal Dildo 7 inches.” Don’t let the name fool you into missing out. This dildo stretches not just your holes, but also your imagination.
I bought the Chrystalino Champ because I thought I’d like the design, and it turns out that I was totally right! However, if I don’t like a toy, I’ll let you know. Even if it goes against the grain. Even if I receive toys in exchange for writing reviews, all my opinions are honest and totally my own.
If you want to support my work and want to make it possible for me to try more toys, consider:
- If you don’t know where your G-spot is, don’t think of it as being any set number of inches inside the vagina. That advice did nothing to help find my G-spot. Rather, think of it as where the rippled, bulbous structure behind your pubic bone dips in and meets the deeper, smooth rest of the front wall. If you feel around where the two meet, that’s the general area where you can access the most sensitive part of your internal clitoris.
- I’m not trying to confuse you with alphabet soup. If it helps, forget the abbreviations and think about the erogenous zones relative to other body parts.
