There are simply no toys in the world like the Crystal Delights toys. Hands down. Not even going to entertain an argument here. The quality is beyond amazing and the look of them is out of this world. You already have heard about my extreme love of the Crystal Delights Crystal Clear Anal Plug. Since receiving that plug I’ve worn it numerous times, both in private and in public. I’ve showed it to many people. Nobody can believe how beautiful it is when they see it in person.
|Epiphany Baton by Crystal Delights|
Imagine my shock when Shellie offered to send me yet another of the beautiful glass toys Crystal Delights is becoming known for. Not just any toy though – an unreleased one! Ahh! I just about went crazy with lust when I saw the picture too. What was this little kinkster getting? The beyond gorgeous Pink Epiphany Baton.
Like its already-in-use cousin the Crystal Delights Anal Plug, the Epiphany Baton is from Pyrex glass and truly one of a kind. Each piece is handmade and done so to exacting specifications. The quality of these toys is beyond reproach.
My absolute favorite part about this and all Crystal Delights toys is the crystals themselves. They are Swarovski crystals and easily rival huge diamonds. The gem in this particular piece is a huge pink gem. It is a shade I can’t really describe – you just have to see it in person. The intensity of the pink is beautiful.
|Gem in the base of the baton|
This baton measures in at approximately 11 inches in total length. That sounds like it’s super long, but of that length only about 6 3/4 inches is insertable. The other portion is the handle itself, not meant for insertion into the body. In those proportions it’s much easier to understand. At first glance this toy looks huge, but when you really get it in your hands and use it, it feels much better.

The insertable shaft of the baton is a slightly pink color, not exactly matching the intense pink of the gem in the handle base. The shaft is also bent and intended so for g-spot stimulation. The insertable shaft also has a raised swirl of ridges from the head of the toy to the end of the insertable portion. These also aid in stimulation. I found the ridges themselves to be a bit on the large side for me. When I’m trusting a toy in my vagina I prefer to have a smoother thrust than something with texture. This is a personal preference only because I find it’s easier to thrust and doesn’t cause me discomfort. This toy was a bit on the uncomfortable side because of this, but someone who likes ridges will be pleasantly surprised I think. The insertable shaft is approximately 1 1/4 inches in diameter, making for a thicker and girthier toy than some may be used to.
This is no toy for the weak! It takes guts to use this baton.This thing is pretty weighty and I can see someone with less arm strength than me possibly getting tired while using it. Glass is no lightweight material and having something this large will inevitably lead to it being weighty. I guess the upside to this is that if you really needed to in an emergency, you could use this as a weapon and defend yourself from an attacker. I’m not exactly sure what situation you’d be in where you’d have this ready and available to defend yourself, but I’m sure it might come up in the far reaches in a crazy twist of the universe.
The bulbous head at the end of the shaft is quite large, almost 1 1/2 inches in diameter. This will stimulate your whole g-spot area. The tip is slightly pointy and judging from this people who prefer their toys to have a more blunt end may find this tip to be too pointy. I didn’t have a problem with the point.

Within the a few days of receiving this Epiphany Wand, I also received the Ribbed Twister by SSA Glass from Eden Fantasys. Comparing the two, the differences are very apparent. The Epiphany Baton is thicker, longer and the head is bigger. The handle is also thicker in diameter. While the Epiphany Baton has a more drastic angle for g-spot penetration, the Ribbed Twister is only slightly curved in comparison. Having used both of them, I feel that they both have their place in my toy box. The Epiphany Baton is more for vaginal penetration or possibly anal penetration if you like thicker anal dildos and can handle the angle. I’ve used the Ribbed Twister for both vaginal and anal penetration and have found it to work for both much better because of it’s smaller diameter. The narrower head on the Ribbed Twister also makes for easier anal insertion at first than the Epiphany Baton.
Included with every Crystal Delights toy is a sample sachet of some variety of lube (my plug came with Boy Butter while this came with Lucky water-based lubricant), two ultra thin latex Life Styles condoms and a card with two glass charms. They all come hand wrapped in pink glittery tissue paper and stored in some kind of padded bag. Shellie has told me that she is having bags for the Epiphany Baton specially made and that the bag I received will not be the bag is ultimately sold with. I look forward to seeing what that bag is.
Glass is one of my favorite sex toy materials because of the ease with which you can use it. There’s no chance that any type of lube will interact with it so go ahead and go crazy with silicone, water or oil-based lubricants. They warm up and cool down remarkably well and clean up just as easily. To warm your glass toys, the safest way is to run it under warm water for a few moments. Making the water too hot will increase your chance of burning your sensitive bits – not a good thing. I’ve cooled glass toys in the past by three methods: (1) running it under cold water, (2) placing it in the fridge for a short while and (3) placing it in the freezer for an even shorter amount of time. Test the temperature on a non-genital portion of your body first so as to avoid both burns and the glass freezing to your skin ala A Christmas Story.
Remember to store your glass toys in a safe place and don’t play catch on a concrete floor with them. If you drop them, they will either crack or shatter. This stuff is not indestructible though it is indescribable. The love and care that Crystal Delights puts in all their glass toys is very apparent when you get one. They are quality pieces of art and pieces I’m very proud to have in my toy collection. I promote them wherever I go and encourage you to check out all the Crystal Delights toys available for sale at Virtually Adult.
You will not be disappointed if you purchase the Epiphany Baton once it is released. It’s beautiful, functional, and above all else – sparkly.
