It's not really recommended to freeze them. Ever seen A Christmas Story? The temperatures may be too extreme for the body. It's much safer to refrigerate the dildo or use cold water to cool it, which is something I do often.

Naw you can't achieve the pure coldness needed to freeze either the moisture on the surface of the skin or skin, itself, to a toy from even a deep freeze type freezer. Glass simply won't hold the cold well enough. Also the toys aren't large enough to cause the instant freeze effect. That doesn't mean you couldn't cause some damage to the soft and sensitive tissues of the vagina. You can burn yourself with cold just like you can with heat. It fucking hurts like a bitch!
It's not a real good idea to freeze glass toys, but it doesn't cause permanent harm.

I'd be worried about the extreme temperature issue. I wouldn't want to cause damage to the toy.

Freezing I think would be too extreme a temp change. I have stuck one in the fridge for a little bit though.

Freezing metal toys and then using them is downright dangerous. The extremely cold metal will adhere to your sensitive bits.

Never. I prefer using just cold water... plus I would forget I put it in the freezer to begin with.

Never, I don't like making my toys colder than they already are and I would never use the freezer had I wanted to do so.

The actual boxes for mine does say to freeze or microwave. So to me that means the material is freezer safe. So, yes, when I want cold I DO freeze it. But that doesn't mean leaving it over night. I just put in it for like 20 mins before I want to use it.

you should never freeze or microwave your toys before use..... thats kinda common sense... glass does hold the cold and heat for a long time and can cause serious damage... you should only soak in ice water for few mins or in hot water depending on which sensation you want to achieve.

"Run the wand under warm water or place it in the microwave to heat things up. Chill it under cold water or put it in the freezer for a cool sensation."

This is on your Icicles boxes. This is NOT a good idea. The Freezer is fine because that won't hurt you. However, inserting after you microwaved your dildo is NOT a good idea. There can be hotspots!

I find cold water to be effective enough.

The only way it would damage the toy is if you would put it right into the hot oven or really hot water. The temperature needs to swing an insane amount for it to be an issue for the glass.

The toy would survive (unless you dropped it straight into a pot of boiling water right out of the freezer) but you could frostbite your bits. Placing the toy in a glass of icewater, or laying it on top of an icepack for a while, is less extreme.

Freezing them doesn't seem too safe. I prefer mine warmed before use.

A little cold water is plenty - remember your body temperature is already 20-30 degrees above room temperature - so even with no help it will feel cool.

Tap water can reduce the temp to about 50-60 degrees (lower in the winter) - which is plenty of differential for temperature play - unless you're looking for pain.

I assumed that they were freezer safe because on the packaging it says that you can put them in the freezer. Many of the icicles toys here at Edens have that in their description.

One example is the Icicles 28
link

Under product details it states "Run the wand under warm water or place it in the microwave to heat things up. Chill it under cold water or put it in the freezer for a cool sensation."

I don't know if this applies to all glass toys though and I know I didn't specifically mention the Icicles brand in my original question.

Any more info is much appreciated cause I never even thought it was a dangerous thing to do.

The toys themselves are safe to freeze. They won't be damaged by the extreme temperatures. It's the body that can be damaged. The glass can reach some pretty cold temperatures and it can really hurt some delicate body parts
