My Secret Garden

Icicles No. 21 is simply beautiful. If it wasn't painful to insert and if it didn't catch during removal, I'd find this flowering piece much more enjoyable. Unfortunately for me the pain isn't worth the beauty.

Use

The Icicles No. 21 is best suited for experienced, glass lovin' users of insertable toys. Because it has a flared base which allows you to stand it up on a nightstand or coffee table, it is also suitable for anal play. This beauty will require your full attention and won't be a go to dildo for a quickie masturbation session. Sensitive tissue can be hurt and bruised with vigorous thrusting of this and any glass dildo. I recommend slow, shallow thrusts or rocking when using the No. 21.

Material / Texture

Made out of pyrex glass, Icicles No. 21 is hypoallergenic and nonporous. It has no smell or taste whatsoever. Rather than having a realistic head, the bulbous portion is shaped like a tulip bulb. Since pyrex glass is body safe, it can be used between orifices and partners after the dildo has been thoroughly cleaned.

The detailing of the flowers on the glass is slightly raised. The texture can only be felt when I glide my hand over it. I was unable to feel any texture in use. If you are looking for a textured dildo for added stimulation, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Glass is a hard and unyielding material. Dildos such as the Icicles No. 21 may feel larger in use due to the inflexible material of glass. If you are new to glass you may want to check out other glass dildos with a smaller circumference.

Design / Shape / Size

I was drawn to the beauty of this dildo. Its simple yet elegant flower design is stunning. Let's just say this is one classy dildo. Though it is not discreet, it looks like a work of art. The icicles line is hand-blown and crafted. This is a high quality piece without the high price tag. I could not find one single air bubble or blemish within the glass.

Everything about this dildo looks perfect: the subtle captivating g-spot curve, the distinctive tulip shaped head that juts out of the shaft. However, I don't care for it. I believe this is due to the size. This is the longest dildo I own, standing at 8 1/2 inches. In my opinion it is an unnecessary length that can make holding it feel awkward. At its widest point the Icicles 21 has a circumference of 5 inches. When in use it feels bigger than it actually is. This circumference may not be suitable to those who prefer modestly sized dildos (myself) or beginners. I do think it is a good fit for the average user, though.

Performance

Regardless of your size preference, Icicles No. 21 will deliver g-spot stimulation and, I assume, p-spot as well. The Icicles No. 21 preformed admirably once I figured out how to use it in a way that worked best for me.

The best thing about glass is the temperature play that can be experienced with this material. Run Icicles No. 21 under cold water for a cool and invigorating sensation. On the back of the box that the Icicles 21 comes in, it says "Run the wand under warm water or place it in the microwave to heat things up." If you want to warm up your toy I would just run it under warm water. I do not recommend putting it in the microwave. You might accidentally overheat it and drop it to avoid getting burned. Pyrex is a strong and sturdy glass, but you don't want to drop your glass dildo on your kitchen tiles!

Care and Maintenance

Caring for the Icicles No. 21 is easy. It is compatible with all lubricants, dishwasher safe, and bleachable. I just clean it with warm water and antibacterial soap. The packaging also suggests using Pipedream Toy Cleaner, which I couldn't find on Eden. There are other toy cleaners that can be found here.

Because there was no storage bag provided, I store Icicles No. 21 in a zip lock bag. Before storing it in the baggie, I wrap a fluffy wash cloth around it for padded protection. Though it isn't convenient, you can also store it in the packaging it comes in.

If you want to travel with this dildo, I suggest buying a padded pouch from Eden. If I were to travel with Icicles. No. 21, I would store it in a padded pouch and wrap it in a towel before packing it in my luggage.

Pipedream states that with proper care Icicles No. 21 is designed to last a lifetime.

Personal comments

The reason I am giving Icicles No. 21 a 3 star rating is because every time I have used it I have experienced pain upon insertion and removal. Plenty of lube makes insertion bearable, but it is still painful. The pain I experience upon removal is a downer after feeling wonderful g-spot stimulation. Please do not overlook Icicles 21 because of my experience. Sometimes I have issues with vaginal tightness that can make penetration difficult.

Experience

I thought the head of Icicles No. 21 was comparable to my favorite glass dildo, the Deep Water G. I think the difference in circumference makes all the difference in sensation. Insertion was painful instead of pleasurable. I haven't needed lube with any of my glass dildos which have only gone up to a circumference of 4 1/2". Without lube, inserting the Icicles No. 21 would have been too painful. The first time I used Icicles 21 I began thrusting as I normally do with the Deep Water G. Instead of feeling wonderful sensations on my g-spot, I felt nothing at all. I kept trying and still nothing. Then I thought I needed to thrust deeper and faster. Still nothing. Maybe deeper? I ended up bruising my cervix, and let me tell you, it was not pleasant. I waited a week before trying again. During my second try I still did not feel any pleasure. I switched to the Deep Water G to make sure something wasn't wrong with me. Then I had another idea. I went back to Icicles 21, but this time with very s-l-o-w and shallow thrusts. Immediately my g-spot started flowering with delight. Using Icicles 21 in this way I have been successful with g-spot orgasms. I read somewhere that too much pressure on the g-spot can result in a lack of sensation. I believe that was the case. The overstimulating pressure was counterproductive to an orgasm.
