Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer Tigerlily
The Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator both looks striking and bares all of its varied internal textures for the world to see. It feels great, and won’t break the bank, but is definitely on the small side. It’s available for £14.95 from simplypleasure.com.
Packaging and Size
The Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator comes in a plain grey and white box, with the stroker itself wrapped in cellophane. Nothing complicated here.
Weighing in at 227g, it measures 14.5cm long and 6.5cm wide externally. The internal passage runs the full length, and can be entered from either end for different sensations. The main internal shaft is 1.5cm diameter at its tightest. Though it can stretch significantly, large cocks might damage the material. I’m a little below average, and it felt tight even on me.
The Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is so-called because it’s completely translucent. Not only does this give you a lovely view of the penis inside, it also makes it easier for partners to tease their subject by expertly navigating their sensitive head through various internal textures.
While some strokers can look so bland and uninviting, the Glacier looks positively fun and exciting. It’s a shame society doesn’t approve of sex toys being on display, because this is one you won’t want to hide away. The fact you can see the various textures inside makes it all the more enticing, and I really couldn’t wait to play.
In case the photos don’t make it clear: at the base, you have a small cavern of extruded nubs. For best effect, this can be spun around the head of the penis.
The rest of the toy is tightly ribbed, but there are two small caverns along the shaft; one in the middle, and one right at the end. Popping in and out of these smaller bulbous caverns creates a delightful sensation, particularly if you’ve covered up the small hole and made a little vacuum.
As the name suggests, this “Dual End” stroker can also be entered the other end. The nubby end is wide open, and you’ll have no problems getting in. The opposite side is positively tiny, and despite being on the small size I had issues trying to get in.
Externally, most of the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is ribbed for a little extra grip. Gripping the toy more tightly in certain places will create yet more variation, though I doubt you’ll need to make it tighter.
The only material listed in the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is TPE, or Thermoplastic Elastomer. This is a catch-all term for a wide range of plastic and rubber mixes, so companies using the term don’t need to define the exact ingredients of their compound. Some TPE products are certified body safe, some aren’t. CyberSkin and UR3 are brand names for TPE material used in other strokers.
The Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is marked as Phthalate free, which is great, because that’s the really nasty stuff; and latex free, in case you’re allergic. I’ve had nasty reactions to phthalates before, and a quick “lick test” of the Linx Glacier showed no adverse effects, so I’m happy that this is as advertised.
There are a few implications of using TPE that you should be aware of though.
Firstly, the toy won’t last forever. Linx recommends use of their Phoenix Renewal Powder before storage to prolong the life of the toy. Without this, the plastic will degrade quicker. As a rough estimate, 6 months to a year of use when cleaned and stored correctly would be reasonable to expect. By comparison, a quality silicone stroker – which may cost ten times the price – will last for tens of years. You should also not store the toy touching other toys. It is possible a reaction will occur, damaging the rubber compound permanently.
Secondly: cleaning the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is very important, and it shouldn’t be shared between partners. TPE is porous, meaning there are tiny holes in the surface in which bacteria can hide. You should use Linx Spritz Toy Cleaner or similar for best results. You can’t boil or bleach TPE toys, as you can with silicone.
So How Does it Feel?
As mentioned, the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator is dual ended, which leads to some dramatic variations in texture and feel. Like all TPE strokers, you’ll need some water-based lube. Just saliva isn’t enough.
The main entrance is easy to get in, and when fully entered, I found the most pleasure could be had by covering up the other small hole and creating a slight vacuum. The best way of describing it would be an intensely pleasurable blowjob. I didn’t last 5 minutes. Not even close.
Flipping the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator around for the alternative entrance reveals a monumentally more difficult task. The opening on that side is around 1cm wide, and even with such stretchy material, is just utterly difficult to even get in. You may find yourself trying to stick a finger or two in first to prise it open, to quite a comedic effect given how slippery everything will be at that point. My first thought was “are they trying to emulate anal sex here? Because if anal sex is this hard, you’re doing it wrong”.
More often than not, I just slipped off to the side. Funny it might be, but it’s a bit of a mood killer. When I did manage to get in, it was an incredibly intense sensation from the start, but it was too easy to slip out again or need to re-lube, and then you need to go through the rigmarole of trying to get back in.
At least the ribbed exterior was easy to keep hold of, even when fully lubed up.
Make no mistake: this toy feels incredible, but anyone bigger than below average may find it too tight.
Should You Buy the Linx Glacier?
Don’t purchase this as a training or stamina device. It will utterly ruin your expectations of actual vaginal (or anal) sex if this is your first sexual experience. It’s tight, overwhelmingly intense, and you won’t last very long at all.
If you’re after a ludicrously tight stroker though, or you’re on the small size and find your average pocket pussy is just not tight enough, the Linx Glacier Dual End Stroker Penis Masturbator may be for you.
You might also enjoy the Linx Glacier as a couple, with one of you teasing the other. The translucent texture makes it easy to guide to penis through the sensations, and the intensity makes it so easy to edge your sub with orgasm denial.
