Not the prettiest Icicle, but beauty is not everything!

Icicles No. 25 is designed for anal use -- and is no slouch in that department -- but I have found it to be an even more amazing vaginal plug! It provides g-spot stimulation and is a fantastic kegel exerciser. Though not anywhere close to my prettiest glass toy, I am seriously in love with this little Icicle!
Published:
Pros:
Compact size, great for anal and vaginal use, body safe.
Cons:
Not very pretty, the size/shape may be too much for beginner anal use.

Use

Icicles No. 25 is obviously designed as a butt plug, but due to its rather bulbous head and thin neck, I have found that I love it as a vaginal plug even more than its intended purpose. This little icicle is small enough to wear for extended periods (vaginally or anally), and despite being small in overall size, it has enough girth to keep you from forgetting it is there. While it can be used for both anal or vaginal play, do be sure to clean and sanitize the plug before switching from one to the other. Glass is super easy to clean, and you want to make sure you are not introducing bacteria from one area to the other.

If using anally, the girth and non-tapered design may make this toy more suitable for intermediate to advanced users. If you are a beginner to anal play, do make sure to take it slow with this not-so-little Icicle. You may want to start with a smaller toy, and stretch out a bit before inserting this one. The flared base makes this plug safe from slipping inside, but the base is small enough that it is still comfortable to sit down while wearing it.

When used as vaginal plug, it presses very firmly against my g-spot and produces amazing sensations! Before acquiring this Icicle, I had never worn a vaginal plug for extended time periods before, but now I know what I have been missing! When I insert this plug vaginally and go about my daily routine, I find that it stimulates me to exercise my kegels without even thinking about it. The kegel flexing presses the Icicle right into my g-spot, providing sensation that leaves my knees quivering. I have worn this as a vaginal plug for several hours at a time, and have not had any discomfort or worries of it falling out.

If you are considering trying a plug for vaginal use, try this one!

Material / Texture

Being that this toy is made from 100% Borosilicate glass, it is compatible with all lubes, and is very body safe. It is also odor free, and very easy to sanitize. You can clean it with soap and water, a toy wipe, you can sanitize with a 10% bleach solution or even in the dishwasher.

Borosilicate glass is a sturdy glass that is almost impossible to break. If by chance, you drop it from a great distance or are very abusive to it, it will still not shatter or splinter, but break into large chunks. If you ever chip or damage a glass toy in some way, immediately throw it away. It is never safe to use a damaged glass toy.

One of the unique joys of glass toys is temperature play. You can heat up this plug in either hot water or ice water, and it will hold the temperature for added stimulation. This type of glass should be very resilient to changes in temperature, but I personally am careful to never expose my toys to really extreme temperature changes (boiling water to ice water) as I don't want to take the chance of damaging one.

This toy is completely smooth with no added texture.

Design / Shape / Size

When I received my Icicle I was a bit disappointed. The stock image that was on the page when I ordered looked like this:



It looked like it had some kind of faceting inside that gave it a really beautiful appearance. In reality, it is not as interesting looking, but just perfectly clear like this:



I tend to buy glass for its beauty as much as function, and had expected a bit more beauty in this piece. While it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it is still a nice glass plug, and I am happy to see that Eden has updated the stock photo with a more realistic image so that future buyers will not be disappointed.

As far as the design for use, I was not disappointed there! It is very compact in size at just 3 3/4" in length with the insertable length being aprx. 3 1/4", with a weight of just 5oz. That makes it very easy to carry along in a pocket or your purse, or for travel. But while it is compact overall, it is not a tiny plug in girth. The specs say it is 1 1/2" in diameter, but mine was just a hair over that, and 5 1/2" in circumference. Being that every Icicle is hand blown there are minor variations in size.

In addition to being on the larger size for a plug, its design is more of a bulbous head rather than the more typical tapered and longer design you see in glass plugs--such as the Icicles No. 26. In my opinion, this shape makes this plug more of an item for intermediate to advanced users, if you plan on using it for its designed purpose as an anal plug. However, I found this design makes it ideal for use vaginally as well as a plug that will apply delicious pressure to your g-spot. When I used it anally, it took a good amount of lube and warm-up to make it comfortable to insert. However, once inserted it was comfortable and stayed in place nicely.

The flared base is a bit small, at just 1 1/2", but did it's job. I was not worried about it slipping inside. The benefit of the small base is that is makes it very easy to sit without discomfort while wearing the plug.

Performance

I got this toy to use for its intended purpose -- a butt plug, but it is so amazing for use as a vaginal plug that I doubt it will ever make it "back there" again. I did not find it uncomfortable for anal use, but I do think I prefer a more tapered design in a glass butt plug.

For vaginal use, this just might be my ultimate kegel exerciser. It is the perfect combination of being secure enough that I don't have to worry about it falling out, while at the same time stimulating almost completely, automatic and mindless kegel contractions. Not to mention the firmness of the glass makes those kegels amazingly pleasurable.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

As I mentioned above, glass is super easy to clean and care for! You can wash it in soap and water, or clean and sanitize in a simple 10% bleach solution or the dishwasher. Again, always be safe and sanitize a toy before switching from anal to vaginal use, or before sharing with a friend.

When storing glass, it is best to pad it in some way so it doesn't clunk against other toys, potentially damaging it. Most glass toys I have purchased come with a storage pouch, but you can also purchase very nice ones now, here on Eden. Here is one that would be a good size for this toy.

Packaging

Icicles No. 25 comes is a very nice box, with a foam compartment for safe storage. At first I really liked the idea of the fancy box, but soon discovered that for me, a pouch is a better storage option. I have many glass toys, and the large box just takes up too much room in my toy area. The box is very classy looking, and also secure, so it may be a big plus for you, if you don't mind the space it takes up.
    • Good for storage
Follow-up commentary
I still love this toy as a vaginal plug / kegel exerciser! I have tried many sets of kegel balls and toys, and never found the process of exercising those muscles as pleasant or mindless as I do with this plug. I have not used this plug anally since my review, as it has found its purpose elsewhere!
