Shots Chrystalino Gallant review: cobalt blue glass A‑spot dildo

Top view. The Chrystalino Gallant dildo's glass is a cobalt blue that refracts the sunlight. It's resting on a white table against tree bark.

Thanks to rad sex toys like the Chrystalino Gallant, I’m still find­ing new ways to awak­en my sex­u­al­i­ty, even 4 years into col­lect­ing them.

This glass dil­do fea­tures two swelling bulbs, about 1.4″ at the widest diam­e­ter, and a tapered tip. It looks rather unas­sum­ing and slight in pic­tures, but I was tak­en aback by the heft when hold­ing it in my hand. The slight par­en­thet­i­cal curve is off-centered and well-shaped for a not-so-well-known area along my front wall: the ante­ri­or fornix.

Acquainting my A‑spot

I love deep pen­e­tra­tion, espe­cial­ly behind my cervix (in the pos­te­ri­or fornix/PFE zone). However, I had nev­er stim­u­lat­ed the area in front of my cervix (the AFE zone / A‑spot) in any mean­ing­ful way until this year.

Perhaps my biggest mis­con­cep­tion about my A‑spot was that stim­u­lat­ing it would mir­ror the way I stim­u­late my PFE zone. Stimulation in my PFE zone results from going all the way in, press­ing against my cervix. It seems that A‑spot stim­u­la­tion, at least for me, is inde­pen­dent of my cervix; I press on the front wall about an inch shal­low­er than where my vagi­na ends.

It was­n’t until I used the Blush Novelties Avant D4 that I dis­cov­ered this dis­tinc­tion. The Avant D4 is an intense treat when I want to usurp orgasms from every inch of my front wall. If I want some­thing tar­get­ed for my A‑spot and less over­whelm­ing (read: no need for warm-up), how­ev­er, that’s where the Chrystalino Gallant dil­do comes in.

A pointy tip for A‑spot precision

The Chrystalino Gallant has two bumps, a gentle curve, and a flared base. In this picture, it's resting on a porch.

Stimulating my A‑spot with the Chrystalino Gallant is a dif­fer­ent expe­ri­ence from with the Avant D4. Both toys are bumpy and smooth, but that’s about where the sen­sa­tions’ sim­i­lar­i­ties end.

See, the main appeal of the D4 is that it’s so chunky and rigid that the head­’s pro­nounced coro­nal ridge has nowhere else to go, but press against my A‑spot. The head and bumps are spaced apart. With the dil­do insert­ed almost all the way in, the sil­i­cone fin­ish drags a lit­tle against my G‑spot. However, the head­’s steep slope angles away from my A‑spot.

The tip of the Gallant comes to more of a point. Its bump does­n’t jut out quite as sharply as the Avant D4’s head, but it does­n’t need to. The angling of the head itself is more than enough for me to get off on it quick­ly, with a lit­tle bit of fast, hard thrusting.

Gentle G‑spotting with the Gallant

The Chrystalino Champ and Chrystalino Gallant are hanging from a hammock chair.

The Chrystalino Gallant can be a good fit for some­one who wants some­thing mild­ly bul­bous, instead of a G‑spot-assailing spe­cial­ist. Surprisingly, it I find that it works bet­ter for my G‑spot if I turn it so that the tip is angled towards my back wall. It’s the sec­ond bump from the tip that I like press­ing into my G‑spot.

There’s no drag, of course, but it’s mod­er­ate­ly fill­ing with just enough vari­a­tion in the shape to feel the pres­sure change as the bulbs slide along my front wall.

Unlike with the Chrystalino Champ, the Gallant is more for tilt­ing towards my G‑spot and thrust­ing, rather than clench­ing around and jig­gling. For me, the Gallant mas­sages more sur­face area than the Champ does, thanks to the two bulbs.

I still like them both. For many peo­ple with vagi­nas, the Champ helps locate the G‑spot more eas­i­ly if they don’t already know where it is. I’m already BFFs with my G‑spot, though, and know I don’t need (nor even pre­fer) any­thing severe­ly hooked or dra­mat­i­cal­ly bulbed to stim­u­late my G‑spot. As such, I enjoy the Gallant’s broad­er G‑spot stim­u­la­tion more.

The Chrystalino Gallant’s base isn’t optimal for solo vaginal play…

The Chrystalino Gallant has a flared base. In this picture, the dildo rests against a blue backdrop with clouds and stars.

For starters, the Gallant’s rigid, flat and flared base is a pain in the ass to grip. Even with rigid sil­i­cone, at least a base of that shape would have some give. I can tol­er­ate the hard base because I come quick­ly with ade­quate pen­e­tra­tion. Someone else who takes longer might find that their hands hurt too much to pro­ceed and finish.

And because of the per­fect­ly round base and very slight curve, it’s not always obvi­ous which side should face front. It’s not  an issue if I’m in a well-lit room; I can rotate the Chrystalino Gallant until I see its curved pro­file. However, I prob­a­bly would­n’t use the Gallant in the dark, con­trast­ing with its S‑curved cousin, the Chrystalino Champ, and the slight­ly slim­mer C‑curved Chrystalino Superior.

The rel­a­tive lack of dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion is also annoy­ing if it’s already insert­ed. Glass slips and sides, mean­ing a round toy like the Gallant some­times rotates los­es aim. I can rotate it until it press­es against the right spot, but it’d be way faster with an asym­met­ric base. The teardrop bases on the Tantus Slow Drive and Sport are good examples.

…but it is anal-safe and harnessable

The Chrystalino Gallant sits between two candles, in front of a sunny windowsill. They cast elongated shadows.

Just because the Chrystalino Gallant’s base isn’t ide­al for the way I use it, does­n’t mean it’s not a good toy (espe­cial­ly for the $40 price tag!). The full, flat base is friend­ly for har­ness play, rest­ing flush against the wear­er’s body, And as always, I can only rec­om­mend toys with flared bases for anal use; with­out a big base, a dil­do or plug could get lost inside one’s rectum.

As well, since the glass’s slick sur­face has very lit­tle fric­tion, a lit­tle lube goes a long way, even for anal play. I rec­om­mend a silicone-based lube or hybrid lube for longevi­ty. They last longer than water-based lube and are safe with glass toys, includ­ing plugs in the Chrystalino line.

Final recommendations

The Chrystalino Gallant rests on a wood table in a grassy lakeside area.

All of the Chrystalino dil­dos and plugs are sexy cobalt can­dy for the eyes. And not only are they visu­al­ly appeal­ing, but the glass’s rigid­i­ty and heft also make the Gallant and Superior’s designs excel at deep penetration.

The Champ can reach my A‑spot, but it feels like too much of a broad, indef­i­nite blob for that pur­pose. I’d say it’s bet­ter for pres­sure on my cervix from behind, rather than in front.

I used to think that the area in front of my cervix did­n’t respond to stim­u­la­tion, but I was­n’t using the right toys for that pur­pose. The Chrystalino Gallant exceed­ed expec­ta­tions and end­ed up being my ante­ri­or fornix’s favorite dil­do. It will always have a spe­cial place in my heart, no mat­ter how many sex toys I try. At $40, the Gallant is a must-try for those who love deep pen­e­tra­tion and rigid toys.

I received the Chrystalino Gallant from Peepshow Toys in exchange for my hon­est review. All views expressed are entire­ly my own.

I use affil­i­ate links through­out this post. However, even if I don’t care for a toy, I’ll let you know. That’s still true, when I real­ly want to like a dil­do but don’t, and if my review goes against the grain. Thank you, Peepshow Toys!

    The blue glass is gor­geous! Materials that rigid are some­times dif­fi­cult in har­ness­es, but damn, it would be such a sexy look.

    We don’t have a glass toy…yet. I like the shape of this one and the col­or is beau­ti­ful. I’love add it to the want list. Thanks for the review.
