Review: Don Wands Glass Pleasure Wand with Melon Crank

I’ve seen several glass crank style dildos and I’ve always wanted to try one.  FunWares was kind enough to send me the Don Wands Glass Pleasure Wand with Melon Crank to review.  Really long name huh?  From now on I’m going to call it the Nubby Crank or Melon Crank.

The package

The package for the Melon Crank is huge.  It’s a big clear clamshell type package.  It’s not exactly discreet since you can obviously see the toy, though some may not know what it is by looking at it.  The top does call it a “glass pleasure wand” though.  Since the package is so huge though, you can toss it and use the included storage pouch.  The storage pouch amuses me greatly because it’s SO big.  It’s why the packaging is so big.  The storage pouch can really double for a small pillow.  It really protects the toy, but I do think it’s bit overkill.  Most people aren’t going to be tossing their toys out of a 2nd story window.

The Nubby Crank in my hand

The toy itself is 6″ long including the handle while only about 4.25″ are insert-able.  The Nubby Crank has a large, but tapered, head and is 1.5″ in diameter at the widest part of the head.  The head also has several groves around it so it looks sort of like an orange juicer.  The shaft is only about 1″ in diameter and has nubs along the shaft.  The base of the toy is 2.25″ in diameter which makes it plenty safe to use for anal play as well as vaginal play.  The base also has nubs around the base.  The handle is about 1.5″ long and it is offset from the middle.  This is so that you can use it to perform a cranking or rotating motion with it. The Nubby Crank is made out of Pyrex glass and is very easy to clean.  You can wash it with soap and water, bleach it, or boil it.  None of the numbs or grooves are difficult to clean.  One thing I do want to point out is that it does seem like it is very high quality glass.  I couldn’t detect any imperfections in the surface and didn’t really see any air bubbles, so for under $20 it’s a great buy.

The Crank and Huge storage pouch

As far as the feeling, nothing about the toy made it uncomfortable.  The grooves and bumps are all smooth.  The head also tapers very nicely so insertion is also very easy.  Plus, there is an included sample of Wet’s Silicone lube and you only need a few drops since there is very little drag to the surface.  For me, I couldn’t really notice the grooves on the head, but the bumps do feel nice.  I also expected to feel the bumps on the base but I couldn’t feel them without really pushing it in deep.  The rotation is an interesting feeling, but the handle can get slippery and hard to turn if you get lube on it.  When you’re rotating, you can also give it a bit of an angle so that it rotates more like a rabbit would rotate.  I personally did not enjoy a wider rotation and even just twisting the toy feels a little odd, but perhaps it’s a sensation I would get used to over time. I also found that it works pretty well for g-spot stimulation because the head is so much larger than the rest of the toy it really allows you to put a lot of pressure on it as well as add the rotation.  The handle also works to hold on to for thrusting, but it will not give the deep penetration some people will like.  Because it is not a long toy though, those who do not like anything near their cervix should be able to thrust away without worry of this toy pounding on it.  I also didn’t find this really gave a juicing kind of feel, but the g-spot stimulation did create a lot of fluid (whether it just be wetness or squirting, still can’t figure it out).

Overall, I think the Nubby Crank from Don Wands is a neat toy.  It comes with a super plush storage pouch, is well made, and for the quality of the pouch and toy it comes at a steal.  It’s a unique toy in my collection and I really think it has a lot to offer people, especially those that love texture.  It’d be great for vaginal or more advanced anal play as well.  I think it’d even be a great first glass toy for some people.
