A rose by any other name...

The nature of glass toys is that they are almost always amazingly beautiful, but they are also very firm. The rigidity will work for some, but it's not a sensation that I particularly enjoy. This is the only toy I have found that could really be discreet though. Toss it in an arrangement of knick knacks, and it will blend right in.

Use

The Icicles No. 12 is a glass dildo designed to look like a pink rose. It's insertable for sure, but the petal design at the top is not one I would want to use in my back door. It may work, but I am not adventurous enough to try.

Using this vaginally, you will want to be aware not to be too rough with thrusting because glass can bruise due to it being such a firm material.

The base is flared, but small. I wouldn't think it too small to use anally, but others may be concerned. The base is very well suited to a harness if you use a small ring.

Glass is also well suited to temperature play. Just soak it in a bowl of warm or ice water for 15 minutes and have a blast!

Material / Texture

This is made of glass which is smooth and has a bit of weight to it. I like toys that have a bit of weight to them because I find that they are better on my g-spot, but not everyone will feel the same as I do about it. This toy is rigid, so be careful with thrusting not to bruise anything.

Glass has no odor or taste, nor does it hold on to any because it isn't porous.

Glass can be used with temperature play. this can be warmed in hot water or cooled in ice water 15 minutes before use to add new sensations.

Design / Shape / Size

The Icicles No. 12 is designed to look like a rose, and I have to say that it succeeds. There is no mistaking what they were trying to get at. If I was to be nit picky, I would complain that the stem isn't green, but it seems like a small thing to complain about.

The icicles is 7.75" in length with 7.25" of that being insertable. This made it a tad too long for me, but I am a little short internally, so many won't be a problem, but for the first few uses, be cautious with thrusting so you don't bruise anything. Glass is a very firm material.

This is 4.75" in circumference at the widest part. Vaginally this will be a good size for most. The firm glass will make up for the fact that it isn't the girthiest toy for most. This isn't a toy I would recommend for someone's first toy, or even their first glass toy, but this is one I would recommend to most as a second glass toy.

This is a toy that I wouldn't feel weird if I left out on a shelf with my Monster High Dolls and other assorted girly things. It's one of those things that blends in. It totally looks like a sex toy when it is with my sex toys, but by itself or with other non sex toy things, it becomes much more discreet. I don't know, maybe I am crazy, but it seems to me that this is a damn discreet design.

Performance

It is a bit too small for me when it came to girth. I prefer girthier toys, so during use, I was wanting more. Well, I was wanting more until I forgot to watch the length. Then I was wanting less. This was just a tad too long and thin for my tastes. For most, I think it will be fine, but I am, internally at least, a petite girth queen. I need the coke cans, and this just didn't work out.

I ended up keeping it because it works wonderfully in a harness. It is a bit droopy because of the weight, but works fine.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Glass is an amazing product when it comes to care and maintenance. It is compatible with any lube or mild cleanser including toy cleaners and you can sterilize it by boiling it, putting it on the top rack of a dishwasher, or by wiping it with a 10% bleach solution. You can also wash it with and mild soap or toy cleaner and warm water.

I would recommend storing this in a location where it won't fall on to the floor. It is hard to break glass toys but not entirely impossible. A fall onto a hard surface too often may just do it.

Packaging

I am always blown away (haha! glass pun) with Icicles packaging. It's always sturdy and well designed while still being easy to open. The box isn't plastered with naked people, but it does have tips on how to use the toy with hot and cold, so it's not discreet if you can read it. Inside the box, the toy rests in a thick foam that is cut to fit it perfectly.
Follow-up commentary
While this toy isn't exactly perfect for me, it does make a very nice warm up for larger toys. The petals are completely comfortable and not stabby at all.

    This seems to me a case of form over function. I think this would be pretty easy to chip, wouldn't it? Thanks for the great review.

    @spiced I don't think so. It's not that raised. I guess it could if it was dropped several times just right on the petals it may happen.

    Thanks for answering my question! It looks fragile, but it's good (in this case at least) to know looks can be deceptive.
