Review: Coco de Mer Double Pleasure Artisan Glass Dildo

When I saw the Coco de Mer Double Pleasure Artisan Glass Dildo for the first time, I fell in love. I couldn’t justify spending so much money on a dildo that didn’t look as though it offered anything special other than branding and perhaps being well annealed, so I simply added it to my wish list and waited prayed for a sale. I was browsing the Coco de Mer site recently and noticed it was 50% off, which was good enough for me. £80 seemed more reasonable than £170. It’s still the most expensive piece of glass I’ve ever purchased, but I’m really glad to have it in my collection.

All Coco orders are picked, packed and passed to Royal Mail from Lovehoney’s warehouse, so are as discreet as a regular Lovehoney order is. The only difference is that Coco orders are all wrapped beautifully within burgundy tissue paper that is then sealed with a Coco sticker. There’s no outer packaging for the dildo itself, which is disappointing considering it’s so expensive, bubble wrap and a layer of foam to protect the toy is about as good as it gets.

The Double Pleasure Glass Dildo is made from super-strong borosilicate glass and feels extremely sturdy. It seems to be crafted beautifully and is absolutely immaculate in terms of quality. There are no faults I can find with the build at all. Being made from glass means that this toy can be used with any type of lubricant that you wish, although I wouldn’t recommend using water-based if you’re going to use it in the shower as it will be diluted/washed away by the water. I usually opt for Lovehoney’s Slick Silicone Lubricant in the shower and Coco de Mer Divine Glow in the bedroom. Glass is fully waterproof so is super easy to clean with toy cleaner and a rinse, although sometimes fluids can get caught in the texture, so I like to leave an old toothbrush near by just in case a further clean is necessary.

One reason that I adore glass so much is because it’s a completely body-safe, non-porous, non-toxic and hypoallergenic material that can be chilled or warmed up for versatile temperature play. I personally prefer my glass to be chilled, but warm dildos can be enticing on occasion. I usually opt to leave the toy in a bowl of water of my chosen temperature for around 20 minutes or so before use, but you could also place it in the fridge if you wish.

This might be the largest glass toy I own standing at 10.5 inches with an insertable length of 10 inches. Depending on how generous my cervix is feeling, I can comfortably take seven inches vaginally, but I’ve found most of my glass toys are this length in total providing only 4 or 5 inches of insertable material to work with. I really appreciate the extra length of this toy as it means I can make the most of the seven insertable inches I crave with a well-needed gripping space for my hands to rest whilst manoeuvering the toy. It has just 4.25 inches of girth at the widest point, which means that this toy is slimline, comfortable and should be manageable for the majority of people.

As you may have guessed by the name of this dildo, it’s double-ended, which makes it twice as fun as a regular glass dildo. I prefer my glass to be dual ended because it simply offers versatility, which keeps my interest peaked for longer. You can use this toy alone or with a partner, although I don’t think it can be used on two people at the same time due to the S shape, a C shape is probably much better for this purpose. Dual dildos like this one have two different textured ends, which offer completely different stimulation and although I found this dildo provided stimulation of the same sort, each end provided sensations in a totally different way.

I opted for the nubby textured end first, as this seemed to be the most appealing to me, maybe because I love the Lovehoney Nubby, or maybe it just simply felt the best of the two, I’m not sure. It turned out that I was right about this end and this is now my preference when I come to use this toy. The texture of the Double Pleasure feels much gentler than that of the Nubby, due to the texture being less defined. It still provides great stimulation though, in similar ways that the Nubby does. This side feels great when rubbed against the clitoris prior to insertion and once it’s inside, my walls seem to fold around the texture and never want to release it. It provides such a glorious internal massage whilst hitting my g-spot simultaneously and the combination of the two sends my eyes rolling back into my head.

I opt to thrust with this end as I find that’s the most comfortable and beneficial way of using it, I find that the texture combined with the firm pressure it places against my G-spot is enough to bring me to an orgasm pretty fast. I like to clench around the dildo as I slide it in and out quickly, feeling each bit of the texture as the pressure mounts against the delicateness of my g-spot. I have been able to squirt when using this end of the toy and overall I find it the most satisfying of the two. I don’t need a clitoral vibrator to get off with this side of the Double Pleasure, but I do when using the other end.

The other end is undulating and bulbed, with the same rounded head as the nubbed side, which makes insertion very uncomfortable. I noticed immediately that this end wasn’t as stimulating, which is possibly because there’s not much size difference between the bulbs and I spoiled myself with the heavier textured end first. It still felt marvellous though as it still hit my g-spot with fantastic precision. Without the help of some internal bliss like the nodules provided, I couldn’t orgasm alone with this so I involved my trusty Tango and begun thrusting. I soon realised thrusting wasn’t the way to go and twisting is actually the best method for this end. When I twist the toy, I begin to notice the raised bulbs which increases stimulation and stirs me on to keep going for the finale. I do find myself craving for the nubby texture again as I get closer to orgasm though.

I found a better way to make use of this side and that is for a completely different kind of stimulation. This toy is long enough that I can use it to find and torment my a-spot. I’ve recently begun experimenting more with stimulating this area and am finding that the more I practice, the more I enjoy it. I was worried that the Double Pleasure might miss and end up hitting my cervix, but so far (and touch wood) this hasn’t happened yet. I’m yet to be disappointed by the intense a-spot stimulation I get from this toy and think it’s going to make regular appearances as I discover more about this sensitive spot and what it enjoys. As I thrust this toy towards the direction of my a-spot, I notice a buzz building up inside me, my blood beginning to rush to the surface and a very sudden sensitivity. This is closely followed by what I can only describe as a mind-blowing climax.

Coco de Mer Double Pleasure Glass Artisan Dildo 3Overall, I’ve had a lot of enjoyment from the Double Pleasure so far and I think there’s plenty more where that came from. I really enjoy the variety of sensations and I adore the ample length, slim girth and gratifying texture. It’s a high-quality and well made handblown glass piece, although I don’t think it’s worth the bank-breaking price tag. It might be Coco branded and handmade, but I think £120 would be the most I’d pay for this.
