Elegant Glass Too Big For Me

If you like bigger glass toys and are not sensitive to textures, say hello to the Icicles No. 18. It is a stunning looking glass dildo with artistic flair. It is hand blown glass, and impressive. Glass lovers, beginners and advanced you just may enjoy this one. As for me, I prefer thinner.

Use

The Icicles No. 18 Double Ended Glass Dildo by Pipedream is absolutely gorgeous. It is a dildo that has two ends that allow you to use both for partner or solo play. This dildo is designed for vaginal use, but can be inserted anally as well. Always be careful when using anally, just hold on to the base when using this toy and be careful because lube makes the glass super slick. Luckily both ends are rather large, so there is less chance of it getting lost.

With glass, the options for play are nearly endless. It is quiet, so if you choose to play with it and your partner is sleeping or a roommate is in the next room – you don't have to worry. It has no electric features so it is safe in the bath or shower. It can be warmed up or chilled for some fun temperature play also.

Both men and women who enjoy a larger, very textured, glass toys will love this one.

Material / Texture

Material: Borosilicate glass
The material safety rating of glass is very high, at 10/10. It is hypoallergenic, non-pourous and easy to clean. It is very strong and hard. It has a possibility of breaking if dropped. It can also chip if it knocks against something too hard.

Glass material is wonderful! Do note: as a safety precaution with all glass toys, you should run your fingers over the entire toy before each use to make sure there are no chips or broken pieces. That would be one awful toy experience if there were a broken part.

Glass is very soft, smooth, stiff, ridged and not pliable at all. This toy is hand blown glass, so it is very unique. Again, one of the benefits of this material is temperature play. You can warm it up in hot or cold water if desired. It retains temperature extremely well and requires minimal lube for a slippery effect.
    • Bumpy
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

It is obvious this toy is a luxurious, elegant, upscale toy with loads of beauty. The design is truly a work of art. This piece is part of a collection from the manufacturer, Pipedream, and the entire collection is unique and a sight to see (and collect!).

This piece in particular is one of my favorites. From the head to the other end, this dildo is lovely. The top portion is a clear bulbous head that reflects a phallic head shape. It is the side that is more for pin-pointed stimulation. It is strongly curved (about 60 degrees) from the head to the center of the toy. The curve allows for easy access and stimulation of parts such as the g-spot, and p-spot.

The shaft is thinner in diameter than both of the bulbed ends. The shaft has deep blue raised dots on it, circling all the way around the toy. The toy straightens out to reach the bottom two bulbs. The first bulb is completely translucent. The second bulb, of the same size, has a stunning 3-D red flower in it. It is not a real flower mind you. It is painted on the inside. It is absolutely amazing.

Toy Measurements:
Length: 7 3/4"
Circumference: 5"
Diameter: 1 1/2"
Weight: 10.5 oz

The size is good for people that like bigger. It is filling and thick. For me, it was just a little too much. I prefer a smaller toy like the Gold Laced G. Read my review of the Gold Laced G for more information!

The bottom bulb flower is by far my favorite part about the look of this toy. It is so unique and beautifully crafted. This itself is a good enough reason to get the toy. I could just stare at the beauty of it all day!
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

This toy is nice because of the options it allows for. You can work with either end. If you like the bumpy texture, this toy will satisfy. It is intensely curved to hit the g-spot or p-spot.

In my opinion, I am not sure if it was just too big or too curved, but I was uncomfortable with this one. I needed a lot of prep time to get it inside, and even then I felt a lot of pressure. I really wanted this to work, because so many people speak highly of it, but for me, I will stick to the thinner toys.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

To keep this toy clean, it is a simple process! The glass is extremely smooth and nonporous – so you can literally just wipe down this toy. I wash this toy with soap/water, wipe it down with a sex toy cleaner or put it in the dishwasher. It is best to wash it down right after use so things don't dry on it.

This toy is super safe and can be shared if it is sterilized or used with a condom. If you choose to use lubricant – you have the options of silicone, water and oil. But do note, with glass, you barely need any lube to get this toy slipping and sliding!

I am currently storing this toy in its original box. It is well padded and secure, and I can see what it is. It is then placed in a box with the rest of my toys. The box is located in a cool, dark place.

Packaging

The packaging of the Icicles line is very professional and sleek. The No. 18 came in a thick box that displays the toy on each side. The box has some helpful information about clean up on it. There is a flap that opens, revealing the toy inside a plastic see-through case. Inside the box you'll notice the toy is very secure in the foam-like padding. One thing I wish was that this came with a storage bag. I would have preferred to store it in that not the box, but the box is working out fine.

Personal comments

This toy is so stunning to look at - to say the least. I really love the design.

As for using it, I could not get comfortable. But, let me give you a little more information about me. I am pretty fresh to insertable toys. I only have a couple – jelly and silicone. I am VERY fresh to glass toys. I only have two. The other glass toy being the Gold Laced G that I really liked. I am getting to know my body with each and every toy.

So, I am not sure if this one wasn't the most comfortable because it was my first glass toy, or if it was too big, or if it was too curved. I did learn that I do love the glass feel, but I think this toy was too much for me to handle. I only tried this vaginally, and will probably never try it anally. I will pull out this toy ever now and again to give it another shot, and maybe with a little more experience it will grow on me.
Follow-up commentary
This sex toy is still as gorgeous as ever. It is lovely with the flower and the blue glass. It is an incredible design. As for it holding up, it is great. I mean there is nothing really that could happen to glass... unless of course the glass actually broke, which it hasn't. I don't really use this toy because it doesn't fit with my body well, but that is a personal thing. I can't judge it based on that, it is still a great toy. If you liked big bulbous products, this glass toy is a good one!
