Crystal Delights in the Media
We are heartened by the ever increasing popularity and visibility of sex positivity in the media, including a big increase in exposure from mainstream outlets about safe sex, consent, kink, and inclusivity of those all across the vast and diverse spectrum of gender and sexuality. We’re lucky to be living in a time when our society and culture is making so much progress in this vital aspect of humanity.
Crystal Delights has also been lucky enough to be included in some of that media exposure. Sometimes it’s silly or sarcastic, sometimes it’s positive recognition, but either way, it’s great to be part of the mainstream media’s increasing acceptance and positive representation of sexuality.
Here are just a few articles where we have been featured in the media:
GQ Magazine Online
Crystal Delights is listed as one of the "15 Best Sex Toy Brands of 2023" earning the "BEST" for Gorgeous glass toys honor. Described as a high quality luxury product, saying "you can certainly find mass-produced glass toys for cheaper, Crystal Delights’ hand-crafted glass dildos and butt plugs are much better quality."
We were just featured in Shape Magazine in an article about "Sex Toys to buy from Small Businesses in Celebration of Pride Month", written by sex and relationship expert Rachel Wright.
A few years ago we were among the featured products in a Cosmo Lab article about the "best butt plugs" you should splurge on. We agree our Pineapple plug is not for beginners and is also a work of art.
the Strategist (New York Magazine)
New York Magazine's "the Strategist" featured our Crystal Delights Pineapple Plug in an article about "the best non-vibrating sex toys, according to experts" over a year ago.
We were recently part of the fashion, beauty, and entertainment site StyleCaster’s list of “35 Weird Sex Toys You Have to See to Believe.” They featured our Pony Tail Plug, and also made mention of our body-safe glass.
The Huffington Post
Huffington Post covered the release of our then new product, the Pony Tail Plug, back in 2014. It wasn't exactly a positive review but more about making fun of what we had done, but that article was shared so many times it crashed our site!
We get it, not everyone’s on board with the Pony Tail Plug, but we still appreciate the recognition (and the humor) in Jezebel’s 2013 article, “Do Not Want of the Day: Colorful Pony Plugs for Sexing Bronies.”
We so appreciate PopSugar’s sex positive list, “These 16 Butt Plugs Prove That Anal Play Can Be Pleasurable AND Pretty,” in which our red Crystal Kiss was included. We hope to bring back our Crystal Kiss someday. One of our original Red Crystal Kiss Plugs is now part of the Kinsey Institute archives at Indiana University Bloomington when it was included in The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2011. What an honor that was for Crystal Delights! Unfortunately we believe the Kinsey Institute has stopped doing an annual juried art show.
Screener was one of the sites that picked up the story of an amusing mix-up on the Celebrity Apprentice back in 2012 when singer Debbie Gibson accidentally plugged Crystal Delights in an original song her team recorded for Crystal Light. Oops! Hard to imagine that Donald Trump the "Reality-TV Star" could possibly become our 45th President when you look back to 2012. I'm sure most of us would have laughed back then. Not a laughing matter anymore! This happened so long ago all the links we had don't work anymore, but we love the story!
We were featured twice on the popular site Refinery29 in two listicles. Our Pony Tail Plug was featured in “These Sex Toys Will Make for Unforgettable Gifts” and the Crystal Minx Fur Tail was one of their “30 Of The Most Expensive Sex Toys – Ever.”. We discontinued selling any real fur products a few years ago due to the growing demand and our ethical use statement.
