Ice, Ice, Baby!

PipeDream's Icicles No.14 is a glass plug that works best as dildo in my opinion. It's made anal safe with the handle, but the handle also causes issues if you want to wear it long term. The size is larger than average, so this isn't a good first plug. You might even need to warm up to this plug. However, there really aren't any cons to this plug. It's a great anal toy!

Use

The Icicles No.14 is a glass plug that is designed for anal penetration, but isn't limited to anal. The size makes it more suitable for advanced anal payers. The plug is curved, so G-pot and P-spot stimulation can be achieved. The bulbous head is meant to provide a full feeling during insertion, but also pops when thrusted. The weight along with the size of the handle make this plug uncomfortable for long term wear especially if you will be sitting.


Material / Texture

Icicles No.14 is made of Borosilicate glass. This is better known as Pyrex glass or Tempered glass. Pyrex glass is the brand name you might recognize because of their bake ware. This is made by mixing boron, soda, sand, and ground lime. The mixture is then cooled at a rate that crystals can't form. The result is a stunning seamless and flawless piece!

Glass is a latex and phthalates free material. It's rated at the top of the body safety scale because of this and being non-porous. As it's a non-porous material, it can be shared amongst partners with proper cleanings or condom usage.

Glass is firm, rigid, smooth, and slippery (especially when wet!)The firmness and the rigidness can cause issues for some espeically if you are thrusting. Glass can bruise the cervix or cause other injuries, so be careful! Since glass is slippery lube isn't required, but with the size of this plug it's recommended!

One of the most amazing qualities about glass is it's ability to absorb temperatures from it's surroundings. The packaging tells you "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." Though, no instructions tell you how to do this. Putting glass in the freezer won't hurt you or the toy, but really isn't needed because glass can't get that cold and won't hold that temp for long. However, heating in the microwave shouldn't be done. This is no matter what your package tells you! I personally can't even believe it says that! Every mother knows you can't heat formula in the microwave because it doesn't equally distribute heat. Therefore hotspots happen. The same thing can happen to your dildos! If you decide you want to do this, please make sure you don't hurt yourself. I think Pipedream would be wise to remove this from their packaging or at least disclose instructions and warnings. It seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen!!

The Icicles No.14 is virtually textureless because it's smooth. However, the bulbous head gives it some texture. This creates popping when thrusted.

Design / Shape / Size



Icicles No.14 isn't shaped like most plugs. It's designed like that of a pacifier. It has a round handle with a short neck and bulbous head. The boublous head has a rounded tip to make insertion easier. The handle is to make it anal safe, but also to make thrusting easy. The neck and head are curved with the potential to reach the G-spot and/or P-spot.

***Remember: Glass toys are hand made, so each one's size can vary slightly! However, they are usually close!

The No.14 is 6" long, but only 4" is insertable. The fullest girth you will insert is 5.5" in circumference or 1.75" in diameter. The neck slims down to 3" in circumference or 0.95" in diameter before it gets to the handle. The handles opening is 1" in diameter for finger placement. I found that was large enough for two of my fingers, but that won't be the case for everyone.



The size of the insertable part is similar to that of the Icicles No.25, but it's shaped like that of Njoy's Pfun. I have compared it to a Sharpie for the everyday object.

Performance

When my Icicles No.14 arrived, I was a bit intimated! This isn't I size I use often. I only use this size when I am craving anal fullness. It have a few glass plug, but because of their rigidness and firm material, I find them best for vaginal penetration. This is because my ass doesn't handle them well all the time. However, with warm up I can use them.

I start with my natural toy. These are also known as fingers. I go from one to two and sometimes three. After I do this, I an ready for a silicone plug. I picked the Mood Naughty Medium because I like to get use to a plug before I move onto rigid materials. After I was use to the Mood Plug, I moved onto the Njoy Pfun. After wearing the Pfun for about 5 minutes, I was ready to move onto the Icicles No.14.

In order to insert this plug, I required a silver dollar sized amount of lube. I used Wet Light because that was what I have around the house.

At first, my muscles try to fight inserting the plug, but with patience, I can get it in. Once I got past the fullest circumference, the rest of the plug slide in really easily.

Once inserted the plug can be maneuvered easily by yourself or your partner using the handle. Though, you can opt to just wear this as a plug. However, the handle isn't comfortable for long term wear. It's rather large and makes sitting nearly impossible. The large handle can even rub in between your cheeks.

I found it best to use it as a dildo. Either myself or my partner would thrust the plug. This gave the feeling of stretching, fullness, and popping. It was very enjoyable!

I tried the plug vaginally, but the curve along with the bulbous head wasn't for my anatomy. The No.14 rubbed my pubic bone. I just can't seem to make curved toys work for my body.

Overall, I can't complain about anything. This is a great toy! So, I have rated it 5 out of 5 stars.

Care and Maintenance

Glass is extremely easy to care for because it can be cleaned a variety of ways. It can be put in the dishwasher on the top rack. If you don't have a dishwasher, you can wash it with warm water and soap or a toy cleaner.

If you are sharing, you should boil it for 3-5 minutes in between partners. Or you can use a 10% bleach solution for cleaning. If you want to avoid bleach or boiling, you can use condoms.

Be sure to store glass in a place that it can't be damaged. The original packaging is okay for storage; however, I find it's bulky. I recommend getting a Toy Pouch. It's small enough to pack away almost anywhere. Just be sure it's packed so it can't break easily. Should the toy break, it will only break into larger pieces because of it's material. Rather than shattering or splintering.

Glass is compatible with all your favorite lubes!

Packaging




You get the usual Icicles packaging. The toy is pictured multiple times. The front flap magnetically clips to the rest of the box. The flap opens like a book to showcase the toy. The top opens up and foam slides out. Your toy is placed nicely inside.

This isn't great for storage, but it will do. If you are gifting, this is appropriate, but I would wrap it.

    I want this, but it is sooo big. I think I like No.25 a bit better due to the handle sticking out. Great review!
