Smooth Criminal

The soft curves of the No. 17 make it comfortable for long or short thrusts. The spherical head allows for a broader area to be stimulated. This makes it great for someone who is trying to locate their g-spot. Also it allows for more pressure to be used without feeling like you're stabbing your vagina. The only thing I could find fault with was the base. It is too small for me to feel safe using it anally or even suggest using it anally.

Use

Due to the lacking size of the base, I would classify this gorgeous glass dildo as vaginal use only. That being said, this dildo works great for anyone with a vagina. From beginners to advanced players. It's for g-spot targeting and the sphere head allows for more pressure than normal without the discomfort. I mean it's still glass and you need to be careful not to do damage to your delicate innards, but the sphere allows you to rub your g-spot harder than a glass dildo with a more pointed head. The smooth, girthy shaft allows you to feel fuller than most glass dildos. You can use any type of lube with this eye-catching piece. The Icicles No. 17 is great for sensual temperature play. Temperature play is when you submerge a toy into warm or cool water, and use it on yourself or partner. You can use it anywhere, as long as you are careful not to drop it. Not that you'll shatter the toy, but cracking a tile floor is never a good thing.

*Another use for this toy is as a thumb saver. I give massages to my husband all of the time and my thumbs tend to get tired. I found that the Icicles No. 17 works great to rub the knots out in his back and allows me to keep my thumbs intact.

Material / Texture

The Icicles No. 17 is made from borosilicate glass (pyrex or tempered glass). It's a fabulous material and rates a 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. You can use any kind of lubrication with the No. 17, and do no harm to the toy. It's perfect for those that love their silicone lube, but are unable to use it with other toys. The glass is designed to break into large chunks rather than shatter, if it were to actually break. This glass is extremely sturdy, so don't think that you're going to break it on your pelvic bone. You can't and I wouldn't suggest trying.

There is no texture to the Icicles No. 17; it is completely smooth and relatively seamless. This allows the toy to glide in and out, smoothly and comfortably. There is a very slight seam where head meets the shaft, but it's undetectable during use.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Icicles No. 17 has two objectives; elegance and function. The gentle curves of the cobalt blue shaft is very easy on the eyes, and allows the shaft to move with your body when thrusting. The shape of the head of the dildo is that of a sphere. It's like a completely smooth, large marble with a yellow flower blown in it. I think that most would agree, that when you see clear glass with a shape blown inside, you stop and look. This spherical head also allows a larger area to be stimulated, rather than having to line up the head of a pointed toy to pinpoint your g-spot. The smooth body allows you to enjoy the toy without having to be discomforted by texture catching on your vaginal walls. The girth of the shaft is comfortable for all players.

The one problem I have with the design of the Icicles No. 17, is the base. I primarily enjoy toys that I can use vaginally and anally (sterilizing in between, of course). The small base of this toy is nice because it allows the toy to stand and it allows you to maintain a grip when using it vaginally. I consider it dangerous to use anally because the size is small and it's only on one side. It's slightly oblong, rather than a complete circle. I've nearly lost toys in my butt before, so I may just be overly cautious. Either way, I figure if I have doubts, it's probably for the best to avoid a potential disaster.

Performance

When I first held the Icicles No. 17 I was impressed by it's smooth surface and it's girth. Even though it's made of glass, I still sterilized it with boiling water before using it. I do this with all fully sterilizable toys, regardless of the material. I had my first temperature play, simply by having the ceiling fan on. It cooled the lube on the glass, and the glass was already chilly. I have to say it was amazing using externally; gently and with firm pressure. The No. 17 is great for external teasing. I found it so relaxing. It was like I was teasing and romancing myself. Not that I lit some candles and put on Marvin Gaye, but you get the idea. When it came time to penetrate my vagina, I have to say I was impressed. The No. 17 was my first smooth glass toy, and I was impressed how perfect the curves of the toy fit to my body. The spherical head made it so easy to find my g-spot. With some toys I've found that the face I make when trying to locate my g-spot, is that of when I'm looking for something at the bottom of my purse. Not exactly the sexiest thing in the world. With the No. 17, that's not the case. The sphere covers a larger area, and allows me to apply a great deal of pressure without jabbing my vaginal walls. I found that short thrusts and pressure works best.

The length of the shaft allows me to use it comfortably with a little extra length for grip. The girth of shaft allows me feel some what full. I like the girth of this toy. It's not too much and it's not too little. I've found that girthier glass toys limit my ability to comfortably angle the toy.

As I stated before, I'm not a fan of the base. I love that it allows the toy to stand if you were to display it. I love that it has a base, just to have to hold on to when using it vaginally. I do not love that the base doesn't allow for safe anal use. I'm not an anal queen, but I do prefer toys that can be used both vaginally and anally. I suppose if you were to take extra precautions, you could use this anally. I just wouldn't risk it.

Overall I do like this toy. It's fantastic when I'm looking to take things slow and romance myself. It finds my g-spot every time and is my most comfortable glass dildo. I hope that one day I'll be able to display its loveliness. I just wish that the base of this Smooth Criminal didn't rob me of some great anal play.

Care and Maintenance

I sterilize all of my completely sterilizable toys with boiling water, straight from the packaging. No ifs, ands, or buts, about it. After that, I use either Eden wipes, baby wipes, or soap and water. It's extremely easy to clean because it's glass. You don't have to worry about lint really sticking to it when drying it off.

Storing the No. 17 is extremely easy. It's all about location. You definitely want to put it in a plush bag, make-up bag, or even a sock. Just something to keep it from clinking. Now, when I say location, I mean to make sure you put in a place that isn't going to be slammed on the ground, things stacked on top of it, or where it can accidentally be dropped. Though it's made of borosilicate glass, it's still glass. I personally found the packaging too large for storage. What I did was find a make-up brush bag that was sold in the Cosmetic Dept of Wal-Mart. It fits perfectly, it has a zipper and it was cheap.

Packaging

When I first opened my Eden Fantasys package I was taken aback by the richness of the Icicles No. 17 packaging. The thick cardboard with the soft matte finish, with smooth texture on the raised picture of the toy. The flap opening to show the actual toy was a nice touch. The flap is kept closed by magnets. I have to say PipeDream really went all out when designing the packaging. The toy itself is held in place by Styrofoam that has the shape cut out to hold the toy. It's not like the styrofoam you see holding other toys, but more like a large packing peanut. I found this nice as it cut down on the pieces of styrofoam that tend to float around whenever you handle it. I didn't keep the packaging, as it is quite large, and this isn't my only glass toy. Though, if you are as taken by the packaging as I was, and have the space to display it, by all mean this is a great option for storage. If not, rest assured that it all can go in the recycling bin.

On the packing is some information about the toy. They call it a "massager", but it's pretty obvious what it is. The packaging is not discreet, as it has the picture of the toy on all sides. Still, it's one of the loveliest packaging designs I've seen.
