No.4 Doesn't Finish In First

Overall, this is a good toy for beginners or those too tight for bigger toys. It allows you to experience the ubiquitous bullet, the sensations of a vibrator, texture, and glass. If you're looking for a good vibrator though, the vibrations with the bullet in the dildo aren't strong enough to really do much for most. If you haven't tried glass - or some of the other things mentioned - and want a cheap option, this is fine. If you want a quality toy and you know what you like, try something else.

Pros:
Non porous and great tool for beginners.
Cons:
The bullet died after a bit, the head's too stabby, and I am suspicious of the paint on the swirls.

Use

I think beginners should try this. Whether they're beginners to masturbation, or to glass. It's very thin, so pretty much anyone can use it. The bullet allows you to experiment with different vibrations, whether in the shaft or used separately. It's not intended to be a rabbit, or for the bullet to reach your clitoris while it's inserted in the loop in the shaft, and the shaft is a bit long to try. The head is angled for g-spot prodding, but it's a bit too pokey for hard thrusting there. In fact, because of the hardness of glass, I don't suggest hard thrusting at all. Because of the width of the handle, it's also anal-capable. Because this is glass this can be shared after disinfecting, or dedicated for both vaginal/anal use (I wouldn't do that with any material that has pores) - again, only after cleaning.

Material / Texture

Glass is wonderful. I'm a huge fan of glass. You can clean it better and easier than any other toy (even silicone can be a pain, sometimes). Taste and smell are non-existent. I know some people don't like glass because of the hardness, but I've found it to be a wonderful aspect of glass toys. It's really easy to hit specific spots, if you know what you're doing. That said, don't just thrust wildly without testing things out. Be cautious, because glass can hurt you. If you're using this on a partner be even MORE careful, especially with the somewhat stabby end on this thing.

Keep in mind that this was my first toy, so the following problem obviously didn't prevent me from buying glass toys afterwards: the little swirls are fun, and not too texture-y for a first timer BUT... The pink swirls are painted on (not like acrylic paint, but that glass-paint stuff), and look like they might flake off if you're not careful. I personally haven't caught them doing so, but I also see a bit of unevenness where I think it's flaked a bit. This is especially disheartening if the hygienic properties of glass are important to you.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

So, I talked about how the swirls were kind of shabby looking, but since I haven't caught them in the act yet, I'm willing to give those swirls the benefit of the doubt. Why? Because I honestly really love them. They provide enough texture to be interesting, but aren't so annoying that it hurts if you're not a texture fan. I think the size of this toy really lends itself to beginners, or to warming up for those who are somewhat tight. One thing I can say is that, although the tapered head makes it easy to insert, it makes thrusting/g-spot rubbing painful. The length is too long, hard, and straight for most to insert, so don't expect to be able to fit the whole thing. The handle makes it very easy to hold this guy, as well as prevents any anal play from going too far.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Alright, so the dildo has a couple little faults but it's really fairly easy to handle as long as you don't go too hard. The bullet on the other hand? GROAN. I loved it at first, since it was fun to experiment with the settings, and you could even stick it in the dildo to make a vibrator. A convertible? COOL! All the settings were interesting, but I found I preferred straight-up, steady vibration best, especially with such a small bullet. However, I've noticed that the longer I have it, the more likely it is to shut off in the middle of usage. This is due to the fact that the wire keeps coming unplugged from the controls. So, I'm really not very fond of the bullet part of this anymore.

Although, if the bullet had been permanently connected to the dildo I would hate this product. The vibrations felt through the shaft are nice, but not anything to write home about. Good for trying out a vibrator if you're a beginner, I guess. As well, since the bullet goes through the handle, it would have taken away one of my favorite aspects of this toy.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

Glass is so wonderful. Bleach it, boil it, use any lubricant with it. Just be careful about cleaning by the swirls, especially if you use this for multiple orifices. Don't drop it, or it may chip. There's pretty much no way you could break this while inside of you, aside from falling from a great height whilst keeping it inside you, so don't worry about that. While in your drawer, I'd suggest keeping the dildo in the original Styrofoam packaging, or in a padded toy bag. The bullet isn't waterproof, so just wipe soap around the bullet, then wipe it clean with a damp towel.
    • Easy to clean

Experience

First dildo for me. I ultimately found some things wrong with it, but I think it was an excellent introduction into a lot of things: dildos, glass dildos, texture, vibrators, bullets, and ergonomic designs.

    Thanks for sharing! I have the rabbit vibe like this. I actually didn't care for it and I love all of my glass toys. oH, about the paint, it's like that on ALL the icicles that I've bought! I have a beautiful Icicle (not sure which "number") it's the sleek long purple dildo without curves or anything and it has beautiful purple bumps. The bumps look just like they were colored with a darn magic marker! I'd love to know just what that paint is if I'm going to put it IN me. Lol. I think Pipedream should've included info on that. I hated the bullet that comes with this vibe and the rabbit one I have. It was crazy! Lol. These are so beautiful with the pink, but after not loving my rabbit like this, I have to pass on this one I hope they come out with more glass dildos with this pink color! I just love looking at mine
