I'm Sold!The Icicles No. 18 was not intimidating at all, even for a pyrex noobie. It was so easy to use, easy to clean, and exciting! I have no complaints. No. 18 has sold me on borosilicate glass dildos. The design and textures provide so many types of stimulation, it's nearly an all-in-one.

This glass dildo can be used vaginally or anally. Either end could be used as a handle or even with a partner as it is double ended. This can be used by males or females. It glides smoothly and has no rough parts but it is solid. It has no give so be careful not to be too rough with it because it will break you before you break it.
The Icicles No. 18 is made of borosilicate glass. It is very safe for anyone to use and is very durable. The designs on the glass aren't just there to make it look pretty. They make it very textured for multiple types of stimulation. What makes this even better is it can hold temperature well. It can be cooled in the freezer for a bit or warmed up in warm water.
One end has a penis-like look to it and is textured with bumps while the other end is bulbous and has two round orb-like bulbs for a fuller feeling. This thing is very firm and is great for beginners and advanced users. It's pretty heavy and solid. It isn't straight. It has a bit of a curve to it, which should add for some g-spot or prostate stimulation. The size and thickness is an average size. It is not very girthy so this should be able to accommodate most people.
The Icicles No. 18 is a manual toy. There are no vibrations or hands-free technology involved. The weight alone requires it to be held or it will shift from the weight. Even though it is a double-ended glass dildo, it can be used by one person. Either end could be used as a grip, and the curve should help prevent it going in too far. The dildo is full of different textures and can have multiple uses for stimulation because of that.
Borosilicate glass is very easy to clean as it is non-porous. Even though it is textured, the glass is very smooth so no bodily fluids or lubes will get trapped in any cracks because there aren't any! Simple soap and water or a toy cleaner will work very well. No scrubbing is involved. Because it's pyrex (borosilicate glass), it can be washed on the top rack of your dishwasher.
The Icicles No. 18 dildo came in a super cute box. You open it like a book and inside, behind a film of plastic, it is sitting on display in a foam like casing. It was easy to open and is so cute that I will definitely use it as a storage box. It's even cute enough to use as a gift box if you intend to give this as a gift to someone. I gifted it to myself.
This was my first glass dildo and I used it by myself. I honestly was a bit worried about using a glass dildo since I had never used one before, but I found this to be very pleasurable. The textures and the ability to warm it up made me change my mind altogether. Plus, Icicles makes such pretty dildos!
Follow-up commentary 21 days after original review
I'm still in love with this toy. This is my first and only glass toy, and I don't feel the need to have any other. I'm glad I bought a good quality toy and didn't purchase a cheap one because I would have sacrificed quality. This is just superb! I really enjoy the variety of this toy. I can use one end for vaginal or the bulbous end for anal penetration. It's firmness delivers excellent g-spot stimulation and the textures are wonderful. Even though this is a manual toy, it doesn't mean I can't experience vibrations with it as well. When I'm in the mood for my glass toy but also in the mood for vibrations, I simply attach a stretchy vibrating cock ring to one end and go to work with the other. It transfers vibrations through the glass well. I heat it up in warm water before use since I keep my house freezing cold and the No. 18 isn't an exception to the room temperature. Icicles has got a new loyal customer in me!
