Looking Back at the Galaxy G
Oh my god, y’all, what a trip. This was the sex toy review of the first toy I ever got for review purposes and it was posted EIGHT YEARS AGO. I was such a newbie and sooo inexperienced. My reviews have grown and gotten much longer and more organized but I did… okay for my first review. At least I got my thoughts out.
When I started I thought it was better to write about the negatives of the toy. You’ll see that in my older reviews. But, now I know what I like and I can guess what my readers may like and I’m able to highlight both the negatives AND the positives for yall.
You’ll find that although some dildoes I review don’t vibrate, I can write a whole hell of a lot more about them now that I’m more experienced. Take, for instance, the Tantus Adam, the Avant D15, or the Real Supple Poseable dildo. I’ve come up with a lot more to say about them now that I know my body better.
Now, I’d be amiss if I were to post a review and not suggest an alternative. Now, I know I could recommend the Lovehoney Doxy Die Cast, the Tango X and Touch X, or the Womanizer Liberty as an additive for this review. If I have something going on in my vag, I’m going to eventually want something on my clit. I’ve recently discovered the ROMP Beat and by golly, that cheap sex toy is also The Shit.
Now, years later, I can say with confidence that this toy stood up to my (bad) review. While I like the Pure Wand, even more, this is a great, cheap alternative to the hunk of metal that costs $120.
The pictures in this review were taken by me not too long ago. At one point I lost all my photos so I’m in the process of retaking them outside. With time I’ve come to learn that I like taking photos of my sex toys outside the best. It adds a little streak of “wild” to the toys and nature photos are downright gorgeous.
Now, the Galaxy G… This toy is the shit still. While it’s no Pure Wand, it is plenty effective. In fact, people with vaginas and sensitive pelvic bones may find the Galaxy G is more comfortable than the Pure Wand.
Here’s the Thing About it Now
As of now the Galaxy G is no longer being sold at Good Vibes…. or anywhere, really. However, there are other options which I’ll list below. All the toys I’ve mentioned in this recap can be bought at the link below!

So, that was pretty cool. I honestly did not expect that to go so well. My vulva is not at all new to sex toys but I am new to creating a sex toy review, so it’s especially relieving that this went so well. The Galaxy G is an acrylic toy, with a dramatic curve for the g-spot. It’s dual-ended. On one side is a large, bulbous, er, bulb and the other end is significantly more pointed than round. The nice thing about having two options means that it’ll work for more people. Along the toy are two other round bits, the one closest to the bulbous end being slightly larger than the one before it, closer to the pointed end.
See, when I saw the pointed end I thought, well, crap, now I have to stick that in me. It looked scary. Like, if I thrust too deep it would poke right into my cervix, resulting in a lot of pain and a pissed-off vagina that wasn’t going to let me stick anything else in there for a while. Good news, though! My cervix is happy and my g-spot is in love with this toy. It didn’t result in any discomfort at all. In fact, I was more fond of the pointed end than the other.
The Galaxy g is lightweight and extremely hard. I tried bending it a few different ways to see how it would hold up. It held up. As in, I couldn’t even begin to bend it. And I’m really glad I couldn’t because I did that before I put it in me, which may not have been the best order in which to do things. Its dimensions are 9 ½” x 1 3/8” but the curve takes away a fair bit of its length. It comes in one color, Smoke Acrylic, which actually doesn’t look half bad. Upon further examination of the picture, I realized that it looks hollow but it’s not. Even though it’s solid it’s not heavy, which is wonderful for the wrists, all the more thrusting power for me!
The toy is well constructed, there’s a very, very slight hint of a seam but you wouldn’t know it if you weren’t looking for it. When it was in me I still had plenty of room to use a clitoral vibrator simultaneously. This toy doesn’t require a lot of warming up. Any, really, if you start with the slightly pointed end, but that’s just my vagina. Short, hard thrusts are what did it for me with the Galaxy G. I didn’t get any stimulation from the inner bulbs but that doesn’t matter. It still did its job and its job was to befriend my g-spot.
A small dollop of lube was all it took to make the toy fit comfortably and my body took care of the rest. This may seem obvious but it is less so when you know my body. I’m not sandpaper dry but I’m not incredibly wet like other women. So, to be able to use this toy with such little lube was quite an accomplishment. I’m a big proponent of lube. Lube it up! You will hear me say that more often than not so this was crazy cool (unlike my Stronic Eins which sucks up lube by the liter. Seriously, where does it all go??).
I’ll admit, my vagina is a stuck-up vagina, I didn’t think a $22 acrylic toy would cut it. I am happy to report that I was wrong. Clearly, the price tag does not matter.
Get this toy. Even if it wasn’t so cheap it would be well worth it. It’s dramatic curve makes it perfect for g spot stimulation and the difference between the two heads gives it some variety.
Thanks to Good Vibes for giving me this toy for review!
