Electric Slide

The Icicles #22, made by Pipedream, is a gorgeous clear glass dildo with blue and red swirls running up its shaft, and a electric blue base. This piece is a must-have for any glass collector, and would work wonderfully as a gift for either a glass enthusiast or a beginner.

The Icicles No.22 is a wonderful addition to any toy box, and would also make a great beginner glass piece. The extreme colors and designs will shock any gift receiver, and are sure to look gorgeous next to any other Icicles that you will inevitably accumulate.




Glass properties
The best lube to use with this type of glass is water-based, silicone works well too but water based is generally the wettest and best for glass, especially texted glass. be sure to reapply this lube as soon as it begins to dry. Glass is amazing because you can use it anywhere, you don't have to worry about getting a motor wet, or having your vibrator run out of batteries.

Heating and Cooling
Glass is great because you can heat or cool it. I find that hot temperatures are good on cold, dreary days or for foreplay, whereas, cold glass is great to play with on a hot day, or after your already turned on and super hot down below. After all the blood pumps to your vulva/anus, it is a great sensation to cool yourself down drastically with a "frosty" glass.



Cleaning and lubing your glass
Glass is super easy to clean, as well as share. You can clean it by boiling, wiping, or dipping. To boil glass, simply place your toy in a pot of already boiling water. Leave your toy in the water for about three minutes and pull it out to polish it a few times. The only thing to watch out for is chipping your toy, so avoid dropping your toy suddenly or boiling it alongside others. You can also wipe your toy down with a Eden Wipe or a wet soapy clothe. Dipping your toy in a bleach solution is super easy and only takes a few minutes. Get a glass, or bowl, and create a 10% bleach, 90% water, solution. Make sure to air dry your toys after cleaning, and playing.

Properties of Pyrex, according to Eden-
Pyrex is a hard material with a high chemical resistance and mechanical strength. The boron in Pyrex reduces any stress caused to the material due to temperature changes. It is less dense than ordinary glass, making it much more resistant to shattering and breaking as well, if it were to break it would not shatter or splinter into tiny pieces but instead it would snap or break in large pieces. It retains temperature extremely well and requires only a little lube for a super-slippery effect.

Travel
It is probably best to invest in a well padded sleeve, if you want to travel and bring the glass with you. Slightly padded sleeves are OK, if you don't want toys to chip, but I suggest the larger bags for this glass.

If you're unsure which brand of glass you would like, I suggest simply choosing based on the quality rather than the name attached to the product. More glass wands are composed out of similar materials, so all that is left is for the product to feel and look amazing.

This Pipedream wand is comparable to other SSA glass products I have reviewed.
Experience


Handling Glass
Pyrex is solid, but life happens. I have a huge collection of glass toys, not all are pictured below, and I have broken a few of them in my lifetimes. Here are a few tips on how to avoid shattering your lovelies:
Don't leave them in your bed: Put them in their cases when you're done playing.
Buy padded sleeves for them: This will make it so they don't rub on other toys.
Boil them separately: This is so that the glass doesn't 'clink' together.
After boiling, when they are super hot, cradle them in a towel and not tongs.
Air dry them before picking them up.
Don't place them next to other dishes in the dishwasher, or keep them out of harms way by putting them in the silverware holders.

For some reason, I break glass toys constantly. I have hard wood floors, love sleeping next to my glass, and have a habit of storing them in a big pile. Hopefully you're more responsible! Glass is certainly worth the small amount of work that is needed to make sure the toy remains safe and usable. Remember that, although Pyrex is sturdy, if your toy chips or cracks, anywhere on the insertable shaft, it is likely time to scrap it.

I think this toy would make a great gift. The intense colors are juxtaposed against a less textured toy, making it gorgeous and alright for beginners. It's not too intimidating in size and isn't too crazy too give as a gift. This would made any bachelor/bachelorette party amazing!

Follow-up commentary
I love this Icicle. It is amazing, gorgeous and super unique. I dare you to find a glass piece of higher quality that maintains this great design style. If you do find such a toy, please please please forward it on to me!

    Most of your glass reviews are identical. A review should be mostly about the particular item, and not about all glass toys in general--that would be much more helpful!
