Review: Luxotiq Eos for GlassDildoz.com October 6, 2009
When I asked the generous people at glassdildoz.com to send me the Eos for review, I requested the pink. Now, blue is my favorite color and I especially love dark blue glass, but pink felt like the only appropriate color for a toy named after the Homeric goddess ῥοδοδάκτυλος Ἠώς, ‘rosy-fingered Dawn’.
The Eos comes in characteristic Luxotiq packaging: a sturdy white and pink cardboard box with satin ties to keep the box closed (I fully intend to keep the box for storage, it’s so pretty). Inside, the Eos is nestled in white satin-covered foam. Also inside the box one finds a small microfiber cleaning cloth (of the type people use to clean eyeglasses and presumably more for removing fingerprints than for actual cleaning) and a business card with “Luxotiq” emblazoned in cursive on one side and “For Novelty Use Only” on the other (one assumes so that the item in question can be sold legally in Texas or Alabama.)
The Eos itself is a very bright shade of pink, especially when viewed against the white satin of its box. There’s an elegant cursive “L” on one side. It’s a very atypical shape for a glass dildo, which is what drew me to it in the first place: it has two skinny ends (one slightly curved, one straight) and a very fat middle. I’m actually a huge fan of this configuration: a lot of the time glass dildos have really wide heads which I struggle with because glass is, well, hard and unyielding.
In practice, the Eos is a’ight. I am not a size queen by any stretch of the imagination, so the fat-ass middle of the Eos is a little much for me. The straight skinny end feels nice, but the curved skinny end doesn’t quite hit my g-spot (although it might hit yours if you have a shallow g-spot). I imagine I could have made g-spot contact if I could have taken in more of the middle of the toy, but even when I was warmed up it kept hitting against my pubic bone. Regardless, both ends provide something nice to clench around while using a clitoral vibe (like my beloved Eroscillator).
So, final verdict: the Eos is a beautiful, elegant, sleek glass toy. If you don’t like a lot of girth, especially in a rock-hard material, you may want to give this one a pass. But otherwise, it’s lovely.

UPDATE: I have now removed the cleaning cloth from the Eos’ box. Henceforth it will live in my glasses case, since I didn’t have a cleaning cloth for my glasses. Sweet.
