Blue Beauty

Icicles No. 8 is a beautiful addition to any glass collection. The slim design is non-threatening for beginners, and the larger bulged end provides filling girth for intermediate users. The gorgeous blue color and whimsical design of this toy makes it worth its price tag. Overall, I'm very pleased with my gorgeous Icicle and enjoy using it for G-spotting and anal forplay.

Use

Icicles No. 8 is a sleek, beautiful glass dildo. The slim design and bulges along the length provides delicate stimulation that feels amazing vaginally or anally. The larger end can be used as a more filling probe if you enjoy some variety while you play. Care should be exercised when using this wand. Thrusting too hard can bruise the cervix. Because there is no clear base, anal should be approached carefully. Use this wand with your partner or alone. The larger end makes a convenient handle.
Glass is a great material for holding temperatures. Simply slip Icicles into a glass of warm or iced water and enjoy the sensations. This wand can be a great introduction to glass for beginners, yet it can definitely please more advanced users as well.

Material / Texture

Icicles is made of food-grade glass, which is rigid and durable with a safety rating of ten. It is hypo-allergenic and latex/phthalates free. Glass is a great material for hard pinpointed pressure along the G or P spot. The toy does not look realistic. Instead, it is very whimsical in appearance. The larger end can act as a handle enabling partner play, but it's great for solo use too. The handle makes Icicles very easy to maneuver even when lube is involved. In my experience, the toy has never slipped out of my hand.
Icicles has a smooth, rigid non-porous texture and has no smell or taste. The wand arrived looking flawless. There were no seams or imperfections in the glass. If dropped, Pyrex glass will break into larger pieces not tiny shards. There is no risk of it breaking when inserted.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Icicles 8 is 7 inches long and has an insertable length of 6 inches. The slimmer end has a diameter of 1" with a 3 1/4" circumference, and the larger bulged end increases to 1 1/2" and 4 3/4" respectively. There are three wavy bulges along the length of the toy. The waves add to stimulation when inserted, especially anally. It is not as heavy as other glass wands that are of similar length.
Icicles is made of clear glass with a beautiful blue helix inside the length of the wand. The surface of the glass has an iridescent soap bubble-like finish, which makes this dildo look like a magic wand. Since it is whimsical, it is more discreet than other sex toys I own. However, I wouldn't keep this toy out.

Performance

The curves along the length of Icicles are very subtle and did not give me the stimulation I desired. I found that for G-spotting, something with more pronounced curves would have been better. My G-spot is shallow, and I had a hard time reaching it. When my partner used this on me, he began with the slim side and eventually I needed something more filling, so he inserted the bulged end. It was perfect! I like that the 1 1/2" large end can provide a filling girth when used as a probe. The larger end is definitely better for finding your G-spot.

This is a good piece for warming up for anal. I liked the slim diameter, and the curves gave a gentle sensation sliding in and out. However, that's about it. After a few minutes, I needed something larger to get off. I tried using the larger handle end anally. Although the blunt rounded end made insertion difficult, the size was great. Since there is no definite base on this wand, I suggest exercising care when using it for anal. Make sure you or your partner have a strong grip on the toy.

If you're a beginner to anal or want to try out anal stimulation for the first time, this would be the wand to use. It is not intimidating at all, and glass provides an added sensation when it warms up to body temperature. The smooth texture, subtle curves, and slim diameter are delicate enough for anal virgins.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Glass is very easy to care for and can be safely shared if disinfected properly. It can be sanitized in the top row of the dishwasher, with antibacterial toy cleaner, or just hot water and soap. Glass toys can also be boiled for a few minutes. Another way to share safely is by covering the wand with a toy cover or condom before use. The toy should definitely be cleaned if you are going from anal to vaginal play. Icicles can be safely used with water, silicone, or oil based lubricants.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Icicles arrived safely nestled in styrofoam padding inside the signature Icicles by Pipedream box. The box is not discreet. It has a picture of the toy on it with a flap that opens up allowing you to see the glass wand itself. This box can be used for storage, but it tends to take up a lot of space if you have several of them.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
Follow-up commentary
I still like using my Icicles no. 8. This is a gorgeous piece that will never go out of style, and is my go-to toy when I want something a little slimmer.
