Icicles No. 12 - sex toy by Pipedream - review by Peggi

  • Christmas shipping schedule

A rose by any other name...wouldn't shine like this!

The Icicles No. 12 is a gorgeous glass dildo resembling a beautiful pink rose. Elegant and yet strong, this toy is crafted with care. Excellent for external stimulation and, if you can fit it in, may provide fantastic internal stimulation as well!

Icicles No. 12 is one of the beautiful glass toy additions to the Icicles line by Pipedream. This toy was likely intended for women who enjoy vaginal penetration and texture, though a lot of buyers may also be interested in the appeal of the simple beauty of the toy.



This stunning piece is hand-blown, well-crafted and absolutely beautiful! The whole Icicles line on Eden is full of variety and elegance, but I've had my eye on the No. 12 for quite some time now!

No. 12 is made of 100% pyrex glass which rates a 10 out of 10 on the safety scale. While safer than most materials, glass still has one down side. Because the material is so hard and unforgiving, care should be taken so as not to bruise the cervix! That could put a damper in play time! Aside from that, glass is highly easy to maintain.

Your Icicles No. 12 will come inside of a typical "Icicles box". This consists of a cardboard box with a magnetic flap door on the front. The box shows your toy on all sides, as well as information on the Icicles line on the back. This information is also seen once you pull on the small white piece of ribbon, which opens the magnetic flap. The flap itself contains the information also located on the back of the box, and the right side has a cut out so that you can see the toy inside of the box.







To remove your toy, you must open the box from the top or bottom flaps and pull out the foam insert. The insert has a cut-out as well, in the shape of the toy, so this box is safe for shipping and perfect for storage! The only downside to using the box for storage is that it is not discreet. You may have better luck storing the toy outside of the box, sitting upright. Because this particular toy does look like a flower on a clear stem, it is very possible that you can get away with showing it off and not getting busted!



No. 12 itself is a combination of clear glass for the majority of the toy, and pink for the actual flower. There is a rose at the "head", a "stem" with 3 bumps increasing in size as you approach the base, and then a slightly flared base to allow this toy to sit upright.

The toy measures at 7 3/4" from top to bottom, 7.5" of that can be inserted (all but the base, really). The rose has the widest circumference of the whole toy. A total of 4 3/4" around, this toy may be beautiful, but it is also a challenge! The rose is followed by a series of slowly increasing in size bumps. This is to provide extra stimulation while inserted. The flared base at the bottom isn't wide enough to make this safe for anal insertion, even if the rose end wouldn't make it so painful to do.

size comparison next to a DVD case(can you guess what it is?):



To clean your toy, you can use warm water and antibacterial soap, toy cleaner, toy wipes or isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). If you plan to share this toy without use of a condom, or just to get it extra clean, you will want to sterilize the toy. To do this, you may use a 10% bleach solution or sit it in some boiling water for a few minutes. After a quick check with the manufacturer, the No. 12 is safe to put in the top rack of your dishwasher.

A final great advantage to glass toys is that they are compatible with all types of lubricants. Choose your favorite water-based, oil-based, or silicone-based lubricant to go with your toy, and no need to worry about it breaking down the material! Hooray for glass!
Experience
When I first saw this toy, I was in love. One of my best friends, who is not a beginner to toys either, purchased this before I did and said she wasn't even going to bother trying to insert this toy. I ordered this toy for show only, but decided to try it out for review anyway.



Turns out, this toy is not the best for insertion for most bodies. I have yet to be able to insert this toy, though I enjoyed the stimulation to the clitoris I was able to get with the rose. I enjoyed hot play with this toy as well!
