A different kind of frozen treat.

If you don't know about the wonders of ice during sexytime, you're really missing out on something. If you do, you're crazy for not having this. Not only is it ice, but it's vibrating ice! Even though it does vibrate, it's not meant to be used like a normal vibrator. This guy is more for teasing and tantalizing and as your opening act instead of the finale. I couldn't think of any better way to cool down on a hot, steamy day.

Use

Okay, okay. Let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of ice in the bedroom. I don't know what it is about it that gets me all hot and bothered (*wink wink*) but it's up there as my top favorite type of sensation play. Why? It's intense. With warming you can only go so hot before things start to get really uncomfortable and in the heat of the moment you're already all warmed up, so things of that nature lose their effectiveness pretty quickly. However, chilly ice on a warm body? Yes, please.

Mix ice with vibrations and you have a whole new level of fun foreplay. Now, while this is a vibrator, it's not really meant to be used as the star of the show for clitoral stimulation. It's not really a good idea to leave ice directly on any sensitive areas (any areas for that matter) for an extended period of time. It can cause nerve damage and all that. So yes, teasing is what you do with this. Of course you can run it all around the lady parts for a chilly little buzz, but it's great for every part of the body, too! Nipples are especially great targets for this thing. But hey, so are chests, backs, necks, legs, arms, feet . . . so go for it! The ice in itself is awesome, couple those with vibrations, and you have those little drops that trail down. Could it get any more fun?

Obviously, you're not supposed to stick this into anything, but hopefully you know that already.

Oh, and the bullet that comes with it? Totally removable so you can use it with this one, replace it with another bullet, or use it by itself. Oh, the possibilities!

Material / Texture

The egg and little ice cup are made of silicone. Of course we all know why silicone rocks as a toy material. It's durable, super hygenic, hypoallergenic, and all of that fun stuff. Silicone is also a great material for things you make ice in because it allows the ice to be easily popped out. What can't silicone do? The egg itself is relatively firm with a little bit of squish to it to make it comfortable to hold on to. Now, there is a little bit of an issue with it being a little flexible, but that will be covered in a later section.

The bullet? Plastic. Nothing to special about that one, really.

Ice? Well, ice is made of water. It is smooth and firm to the touch. It's pretty cold, too. You probably knew that already.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Let's start with the egg (or half an egg, really) part first. It's about 2" long so you have a decent size piece of egg shaped ice at the end of everything. Again, it's rather firm but still has some squishiness to it. The ridges along the sides are wonderful because they help the wielder maintain a good grip on it when things get slippery. On the top of the egg is the little hole you slide the bullet down into. The bullet does go pretty much all the way inside of there and it can be a little tricky when trying to pop it back out, but it's nothing near impossible. On the underside of the egg you have your "stem". This basically looks like a little mushroom that the ice grabs on to. It has holes running around it to help the ice stay put and get a good grip onto everything, as well. Overall, they put this together pretty well.

The base (the part you fill with water) is made of a super flexible silicone. There's a little tab on one side that helps you free the ice when it's frozen so it just pops right out. On the inside there's a tiny little ridge that your supposed to sit the top of the egg on when placing it in the freezer. Nothing too fancy or complicated.

Same story with the bullet. It has a simple one button design. It's about 1 1/2" long, so it's a fairly standard design. Three watch batteries get it going. It's also waterproof for obvious reasons.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This is one toy that takes a little preparation (but not much) before you can use it. I mean, ya gotta make the ice, right?

When getting your ice ready to go, you'll want to take the bullet out. (I accidentally left mine in it when I threw it in the freezer for a couple of weeks. Bullet was fine. Batteries were dead.) Next, you'll fill the base up with some water. Set the egg in the base. Throw it in the freezer. Wait about 4 hours. Now you're the proud owner of a delightfully icy vibrator!

Sounds easy, right? Well . . . it's not exactly that easy, sadly. First, getting that bullet out can be a pain in the ass as I mentioned earlier. Next, I still haven't mastered the science of getting the right amount of water in the little cup so that the ice stays totally attached to the base. If you don't fill it enough you'll have a bit of a gap between both parts. Too much and the ice pushes the top half up and your ice gets all wonky. It's still somewhat attached in both scenarios, but not in an ideal manner. If you do manage to find the perfect balance of water in the little cup you still have to be a little gentle when removing the egg from the base because it will cause the top and bottom to come apart (still attached by the stem, but not the entire base.) Now, even though the ice is still on there, it's not going to transfer the vibrations as well. Plus, if there's a large gap between the two you end up with a wobbly piece of ice. Still cool, but not as cool as it could be. This is where the squishiness of the material become a bit of a pain. If that stem was sturdier it might be a little more effective.

Now on to the mechanical aspects: This isn't meant to be a clitoral vibrator. It's not super powerful. It's not going to give you mind-blowing orgasms. It's not even really meant to be used as anything more than a tease. (I suppose you could accomplish a bit with just the bullet alone, but not in this set-up.) That being said, the vibrations don't travel through the ice a whole lot. On the other hand, you have the ice that adds some great stimulation. For what it's meant for, it's lovely. The bullet isn't much different than other bullets. The one button at the top controls everything. You get your standard low/medium/high set up and a few standard pulsation modes. It's buzzy, but that's generally how bullets are. It's not terribly loud by itself and is just a bit of a hum when used inside the egg.

Unless you're going at it for hours in sweltering heat, the ice should last through your session. It's a good idea to keep the cup with you so you can toss the egg back in there when you're done with it. No one wants a puddle of ice water hanging out.

The only real downside to this (other than the science of the egg + ice thing) is that you have to prepare it each time you use it. I usually just fill mine up when I'm done and leave it hanging out in the freezer until I want it again.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

There's nothing too complicated in this department. Take the bullet out of the whole set up and throw the silicone in the dishwasher. Wash it with some soap if you need to. It's super easy to keep clean. The bullet can be washed with soap and water, as well. Lubes shouldn't be an issue with this since it's slippery already, but no silicone ones should be used.

Technically, I store mine in the freezer. If you take the bullet out it's rather plain and not something anyone would suspect something from.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I still haven't seemed to have perfected the art of getting the ice perfectly in the egg. Oh, and there was one instance when I left the bullet in the egg on accident when I was freezing it. Whoops. Everything but the batteries fared well. Overall, it's still a nice little fun treat when the mood strikes, but the fact that the ice is a little finicky at times keeps it from being something that's used very often.
