Spartacus Blown Medium Realistic

I reached out to the wonderful people over at Tabu Toys about doing reviews for their site on my blog. I was happy when they welcomed me with open arms, I was sent a list of items they were looking to have reviews done on. I will list a few of the items I had the opportunity to choose from below.

Overview/Design
For my review I chose the Spartacus Blown Medium Realistic dildo this means that it resembles a human penis in its shape. I have several glass pieces in my collection and have past along several others to my cousin. All my other glass pieces have never been like the Blown Medium, none were realistic they were all artsy and decorative. Blown Medium is best used for vaginal or anal penetration the choice is yours, with the flared base it can be used safely for anal penetration. Are you into harness play? Blown Medium is harness compatible as well so you can wear it around or peg your partner with ease.
I wouldn't recommend the Blown Medium to a beginner with it having an overall length of 8 inches long and 7 of those inches being insertable. I would say he is a little girthy especially for a beginner and being a solid toy without any type of give, his girth is 1.5 inches in diameter. I would consider myself an intermediate toy user but often times I can't use toys over 1 inch or so in diameter depending on the material. Blown Medium has texture to it but it isn't rough or all that noticeable while in use. Being made out of borosilicate glass it has no give to it at all so if you are using this with a partner please note you will need to be careful. If you are super rough or pound away at the vagina or anus super hard you can cause issues such as bruising since they material is super hard with no give. Be vocal on what feels good and what doesn't when playing with a partner. This material is nonporous and can be sterilized if you plan to use it between you and your partner. I will explain later in the review how to sterilize your Blown Medium. Blown is pretty realistic for being a glass piece and being of clear glass, you can see the mushroom shaped head with the crease in it and where the urethra would be. Down the shaft there are veins that run up and down the shaft for a realistic feel when in use. There is a slight curve in the shaft which will make it easy to use for G-Spotting or P-Spotting (male).

Material-What's Blown Medium Made Of?!
Blown Medium is made out of borosilicate glass, think of Pyrex baking dishes it is the same type of glass. Borosilicate glass is a hard nonporous material that is also hypoallergenic, latex and chemical free. Even though there is texture on the shaft of Blown Medium it still is very smooth feeling in your hands and in the vagina (for me at least). Glass is a wonderful material if you are worried about having a draggy material like some toys can have, glass doesn't it glides very easily with or without lubrication. 
If you are into temperature play glass is great for that you can heat it up or cool it down but there are some precautions you should take in consideration before doing temperature play. 
To Chill:Simply place your Blown Medium into a cup full of ice water for a few minutes to cool the glass down to the temperature you want it to be at. I love the feel of a cold toy but room temperature always works fine for me. 
Do NOT ever put your glass toys in the fridge or freezer, think of your tongue stuck to an ice cube!! I am sure we all have had our tongues stick to an ice cube or popsicle at some point in our life remember how that hurt to pull it off? You don't want that happening to your vagina or anal cavity. 
To Warm:If you like your toys warmed up get a glass of hot tap water but not scolding hot and let Blown Medium sit in the cup for several minutes before playing. This warms up the glass pretty well. This is the ONLY safe way of heating up a toy for playing. 
Do NOT ever place your toy into boiling water or heat it up in the microwave for temperature playing. Glass is known to heat unevenly which could lead to severe burns to your body inside and out. 
While borosilicate glass is pretty strong and won't just snap in half in your vagina it is still best and recommend to inspect your toy before each use. If you subject the dildo to extreme temperature changes from SUPER hot to SUPER cold it can weaken the glass. If you dropped your Blown Medium the chances of it shattering is slim but if dropped too many times especially on a hard surface it can weaken the material where it could break. Borosilicate or Pyrex glass isn't known to shatter usually when it breaks there will be some small shards of glass but most of it will be HUGE chunks of glass.
With all that said you also want to check for any type of scratches on the surface of the glass, if you can see scratches run your nail over it or run the toy along your skin. If you feel any type of snagging from either tests its probably best not to insert the toy into the body as it can snag an cause issues on very delicate tissues. 

Packaging
Blown Medium arrives in a elegant looking black cardboard box with pictures of the dildo all over the box. The top of the box is sealed with little clear stickers which is suppose to act as a safety seal. I love the look of the box it comes in but it isn't discreet nor is it great for gift giving especially if you are trying to be discreet about it. I usually store most all my toys in the package they come in but, sadly I am not sure how long my Blown Medium will be able to call this box his home. When you open the box Blown is just sitting in there with two piece of cardboard around the shaft that are in the pentagon shape that the box is to prevent him from moving around during shipping. There is information on the side of the box as well stating Blown is lead free, is compatible with several lubricants, dishwasher safe and it has the measurements on there as well. Since the box isn't all that sturdy I am sure I will be needing to purchase a padded pouch in the future to store him in. 

Caring for & Storing
Glass is one of the easiest materials to take care of since its nonporous and there is no motor inside there are many simple easy ways to clean your Blown Medium
1.) Toy Wipes or Baby Wipes-This just cleans it off but doesn't sterilize.
2.) Antibacterial Toy Cleaners-Spray down let sit a minute then wipe clean 
3.) Warm/Hot Water & Antibacterial Soap-Wash in warm/hot water with antibacterial soap. Rinse thoroughly then let dry. 
4.) Dishwasher-Since this is made out of glass and doesn't have a motor, you can toss it in the top rack of your dishwasher just watch who is helping with dishes ;) Putting your Blown in the dishwasher is one of the ways to sterilize it.
5.) Boiling-You can toss your Blown into a pot of boiling water this sterilizes it boil for about 10 minutes an either let the water in the pan cool down before removing  or you can use tongs to remove your Blown. 
6.) 10% Bleach Solution-You can soak your Blown in a 10% bleach and water solution for 5-10 minutes rinsing thoroughly when done. This sterilizes your Blown as well. 

Blown Medium is compatible with all lubricants on the market:
Water Based
Silicone 
Oil 
Hybrid 
None of these lubricants will damage the material as we all know glass is hard to damage with liquids. 

When it comes to storing your Blown Medium you have a few options, you can use the box it came in like I plan to do til it falls apart, purchase Toy Bags or if you have long socks you can slip your Blown into one of those. Just be careful how you store it so it doesn't get scratched or chips. 

Please remember to inspect your toys before and after use to make sure everything is okay to use. 


Experience
My experience with Blown Medium wasn't bad but the girth was a bit much for me. I can use toys that have 1.5 inches if they are made of plushy silicone. When it comes to harder materials I don't get much play out of them but I am able to work my kegles on the toy while stimulating my clit. I was able to thrust him but it wasn't 100% comfortable for me so he will only probably come out when I am needing a "full" feeling of a harder material. When I was able to thrust the Blown I enjoyed the feeling of the realistic head of his, I wasn't able to really feel the veininess of the shaft while it was inserted though.
Please not just because I had issues with the size doesn't mean you will have the same issues. 

Like Blown Medium and want to own him yourself no worries you can pick him up at Tabu Toys for $48.00.
