Icicles No. 17 - My Old Friend

This is something that every male and female needs in their toy box, regardless of whether they feel they may or may not enjoy it. This toy surprised me. I didn't think I would fall in love with it, but I was so very wrong. Both my husband and I can never give this one up!

Use

Icicles No. 17 is a versatile and beautiful piece of art that is more than sexually satisfying. It can be used for a variety of things. Everything from your basic body massage, to a sexual work of art that no one would ever suspect on your nightstand or office desk. It brightens up any room or toy box, and the possibilities of pleasure are truly endless.


Both females and males alike can enjoy this toy, as it makes a wonderful anal toy as well as a G-Spot massager. It reaches the cervix quite well, at least for myself, and a slow rotation can give you the most amazing cervical orgasm. My husband is fond of this toy as a prostate massager. It seems a little difficult to use in that sense, but with the right lubricant and a skilled prostate massage therapist (myself), nothing can go wrong - it can only go right!


The bulb itself is a tad large for beginners to anal or vaginal play. I was overwhelmed when I first made the purchase of this toy, and it sat in the back of my closet for months. I haven't started really using it until two months ago, but I have fallen head over heels for this gorgeous piece of pleasure. It may take time to adjust, but you're bound to fall in love with it just as much as I have.

Material / Texture

This fine piece of pleasure is made from 100%, high quality, borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is commonly known in Pyrex bakeware, so that should tell you that these pieces do not break easily. I will admit, I have dropped all of my glass toys at least once, including this toy. Did they break? No. Did they scratch? Hardly a dent! This toy in particular does not scratch easily and is one of the most impressive glass pieces I own!


The glass itself holds heat VERY well. That can be said for most glass toys, but I've found that Icicles holds heat a lot better than most. Fill a warm bowl with warm water (not too hot, but you can determine what is "too hot") and set the toy down in the water and let it sit for 10 minutes. It will become the exact same temperature, and hold that temperature for a good 20 minutes.


What if you like it cold? Well, glass does that too! Of course, you want to make sure to let your glass fully cool back to room temperature before going from hot to cold. Glass can shatter if the temperature is changed to quickly. This is rare, but it has happened to me once and I don't intend to let it happen again! Do the same thing and fill a bowl with cool water, or even ice water if you dare. Let it sit for about 10 minutes or more if you want it to get colder, and it should last a good 20-25 minutes. Cold seems to last longer than the hot.


The glass toy, nonetheless, will warm to your body temperature. So if you wish not to change the temperature, you don't have to. Just insert it inside of you, or hold it in your hands and it will warm to your body within a minute. It's like magic!

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this glass toy is just outstanding. The curve, the bulb, the long shaft... to die for! It is all angled perfectly to fit the inner contour of your body. That bulb can hit literally any pleasure spot on a male or female's body with ease. No fiddling around for hours wondering what the hell you're doing - the toy does it for you! Just insert it, and twist a bit and you'll know immediately when you've hit the right spot because you will be in ecstasy!


This toy is one of the larger Icicles toys. It is quite long - 9 inches in length! Some people prefer the shorter toys, but I love that this one is long. It makes it so much easier for solo play and thrusting. If you are like me and you have a bad back, you'll know that things can get awfully uncomfortable during thrusting a dildo inside of yourself. This toy has just the right curve, and a nice base that makes thrusting easy. The length allows you to lay back instead of hunching forwards and hurting yourself. I love it!


Like I mentioned, the bulb is a little overwhelming if you are a tighter female who isn't used to thick toys. I have been sticking to slimmer vibes and dildos for a while, so it took me a few weeks to get used to this one. However, once I did, it was all smooth sailing. My husband has loved it from the first time I used it on him for P-Spot massage. He actually went into an orgasm without need of a blowjob/handjob or sex. It was fantastic!


Discreet? Completely. As long as no one has seen this toy before, they wouldn't have the slightest idea of what it was. It looks like a fancy piece of art to keep on your desk or wherever you please in your home or office. Plus, if they've seen it before then saying something about it would just make them a hypocrite!

Performance

From what you have ready already, you can probably tell that this toy performs well at anything it is used for. Like I said, everything from artwork to a body massager, and everything in between. Just put some massage oil on yourself or your partner and use the bulb to hit all the spots and work out all the kinds. Lube your man up and give him the P-Spot massage of his life! Lay down in the tub and treat your pussy to the night of her life! It's really up to you!


Although this has a flat base, it is not harness compatible. The base only flares on one side, so it would not affectively sit inside of a harness without possible falling out or waving around back and forth, potentially breaking. You can use it with a double sided suction cup, which works very well. I believe EF sells one, but I'm not positive. I own one at home and I used it while in the shower and it felt great!

Care and Maintenance

Glass is just the easiest to care for! Wash it down with warm water and antibacterial soap and you're good to go! Toy cleaner, 10% bleach/90% water solution for sterilization (although this isn't needed, as glass is not porous), toy wipes, and even the dishwasher are all options. If you choose to dishwash, as many do, be sure to use a medium heat cycle (nothing too hot) and use a dish soap made for glass. Otherwise you will have an ugly white tint to your toy. If you do this on accident, some apple cider vinegar will get rid of this tint. If you do NOT have a dishwasher that has different heat cycles, avoid using this method. Also avoid boiling. If there happens to be an air bubble in your toy it could burst and cause injury.


Storage is very easy. Icicles gives you a great, pre-fitted styrofoam "bed" inside of each box where your toy can "sleep". Other than that, you can wrap it in a fluffy towel, or use a toy pouch that is padded to keep it safe. Be sure to store it where it cannot fall. Definitely somewhere that is not near a hard floor such as tile, wood, etc.


Since glass is not porous you may use any lubricant you darn well please!

Packaging

If you haven't seen the Icicles boxes, they are pretty discreet. It says nothing about sex or sensuality anywhere on the box. You can see a picture of the toy, and when you open the flap you can see the toy through the plastic. To me this isn't a huge deal. I would open this in front of family because it's a very discreet looking piece.

Experience

I'm so pleased with this toy that I'm tempted to get a back up in case I lose it or break it one day. It is so beautiful and the flower detailing on the bulb is gorgeous. People have come in the house asking where I found this piece of art... Shhh... I'll never tell!
Follow-up commentary
I've had this for a while and I can honestly say I've started to like it more. NEVER giving up on this one! Definitely a must-have for every boy and girl in the world!
