Icicles No. 1 - double ended dildo by Pipedream - review by sXeVegan90

Number 1 In Solo Fun.

The Icicles No. 1 by Pipedream products is a simple but effective design for those looking to experience textured glass. It's a beautiful, shining piece of pure bliss when inserted, and what it lacks in curve, is made up for by its spiraled texture formed all the way around the shaft.
Easy to clean (non-porous)
Great for temperature play
No curve for g-spot or p-spot play
No pouch included

extremely useful review


The Icicles No. 1 by Pipedream can be used a number of ways to bring joy to users. It is mainly intended for vaginal play, but the rounded bulb at the end could serve as an anchor of sorts for anal play. Wherever you are, you can take this toy with you without the fear of harming or hearing it, as it doesn't have any mechanical parts and it cannot be heard in use. Best suited for users who love texture, this toy can also bring something to beginners of texture, with its non-intimidating size and shape. Users can also use this toy to enjoy and experiment with temperature play.

Due to the material of this toy, if not handled properly, it can cause bruising to sensitive tissues. Users who use this toy for anal play should also take caution, and only use the bulbed end for a handle, as it can become 'lost' if used with the bulbed end being inserted. Because of the length of this toy, it can easily reach the cervix, and if handled too roughly can bruise it. When inserted, you can use a wand style vibrator to send vibrations through the toy. Simply hold the wand against the bulb, and it should send vibrations through the glass.

The No. 1 is travel friendly and can easily be tucked into luggage. As long as you keep it padded, it should safely transport to any destination you're taking it. If you use the bulbed end as an insertable, it is possible it could provide some g-spot stimulation, so keep in mind when using vaginally.

Material / Texture

Icicles No. 1 is made from borosilicate glass. The Icicles No. 1 is a clear glass dildo and has no color to it. This glass is also known as Pyrex in most household kitchens and is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex, and phthalate free. It's rigid, so there obviously isn't any bend or flex to it. With it being glass, there is also a small amount of heft to this toy as well, and can tire the arm when thrusting.

The texture of this toy stimulates the sensitive tissues inside of the vagina or anus and creates a unique experience for the user. It almost feels like a ribbed sensation when thrust in and out. Because the design is not realistic, and because it is glass, this toy does not have a realistic look or feel. Both beginners and advanced users will find something to love about this toy.

Glass has no scent or taste, so users who are sensitive to these kinds of things will appreciate this aspect. Because this toy lacks a flared base, you will not be able to use this toy in a harness. Any lubricant you like can work with this toy. That means you can use water, silicone or oil based lubricants. Just be sure that any other toys you might be playing with in conjunction to this one are also compatible with the lubricant you use.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Icicles No. 1 by Pipedream is fairly simplistic. It's a simple shaft with a texture overlay. The texture surrounding this toy is a spiral that starts an inch from the tip, and goes all the way up the length of the toy stopping just below the bulb end. While it is simple, it does not take away from the beautiful shine of the clear glass, and how it looks like it's a freshly formed icicle hanging from your roof after a cold winter's night. It has a shine and brilliance that is something to behold, especially in a sunlit room.

The shape is that of a wand, and it has a nice rounded bulb on one end that makes a great handle while thrusting. It can even be flipped, and the bulb end serving as the insertable if you'd like. This end may provide g-spot stimulation for those with shallower g-spots. The No. 1 has an average sized circumference, so beginners can easily take this toy on if they're wanting to experiment with textures for the first time. For more experienced users, it makes up for its lack of girth in length, and the texture adds to the extra stimulation when in use. While this toy is not realistic, one can tell what it is used for if left out in the open, so people who are easily embarrassed might want to store it in a drawer or in your toy box.

If you're wanting to travel with this toy, it's not so big that it will take up a lot of space in your luggage. If you're not embarrassed by your toys, this would be a great travel companion. If you're wondering about the size, it's as follows:

Bulb: Circumference - 4-3/4ths, Diameter - 1-1/2 inches
Shaft with texture: Circumference - 3-1/2 inches, Diameter - 1 inch
Overall length - 9 inches
Insertable length - 7-5/8ths
Space between spirals - 5/8ths

Note: Glass items will vary in size and shape due to being handmade and not from a mold.
    • Beginner
    • Whimsical / artistic


Hands down the best thing about this dildo is the texture. It feels wonderful internally and externally. When thrust slowly, users will be able to feel the prominent swirls surrounding the shaft brushing the vaginal walls. If used externally, those swirls can create immense pleasure if run along the clit back and forth. Anally, that texture feels wonderful as well, and glides along the rectal wall when lubricated, creating pure bliss.

If you get this toy and can't take the texture, you can use this for temperature play and teasing your partner. Run it through an ice bath for a cold thrill, or heat it in warm water for a sensual teaser. Running the toy along the inner thigh while hot or cold creates a sensation that will have your spine tingling from the sensory play. Use it for a pin-point teaser in other erogenous zones.

Because this toy lacks a curve, it is not great for g-spot stimulation if your g-spot tends to be buried and well hidden. If you have a shallow g-spot, as stated earlier, the bulbed end may be able to find and stimulate it. Because this is a double ended dildo, there's not a suction cup and it is not harness compatible.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Glass is easy enough to clean. You can wash it with warm, soapy water, rinse it with a 10% bleach, 90% water solution, boil it up to 3 minutes to sterilize, or put it in the top rack of your dishwasher without detergent. If you have a favorite toy cleaner, you can even use that. Because glass is non-porous, you can share it between fluid and non-fluid bonded partners in between sterilizing it. If you do, it is recommended that you boil it. Fluids often stick to this toy, so make sure to use a soft bristled brush around the swirls in order to clean them fully and properly, making sure no residue is left behind.

Always check for cracks or scratches in the glass. By no means should you use this toy if either are present, as the smallest scratch can cut into sensitive tissues easily. If they are present, discard the toy immediately. To prevent anything like this from happening to your toy, store it in the box provided, or in a padded place. Borosilicate glass is meant to break into large chunks rather than shatter if it is broken.

Glass is compatible with all lubricants, so have fun. As stated earlier, make sure that any other toys you're playing with are also compatible with the lubricant you choose. Always use tongs or a heat-resistant glove when removing this toy from boiling water, and allow to cool down naturally. Changing from hot to cold water could cause the glass to crack when moved from extreme temperatures.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Icicles No. 1 came packaged inside of a sturdy cardboard box. Inside of the box, the toy rests in a foam insert that ensures protection of the toy in storage or transit. The front of the box displays a photo of the toy, and the front is a flap that opens to show the full toy in all of its glory behind a plastic window. The flap stays shut via a magnet, and the inside of the flap has a baroque, black and silver pattern surrounding the plastic window that silhouettes the shape of the toy. On the flap there is information about the toy and how to care for it.

On either side of the box, there is a picture of the toy again like the front, but has a black contrast behind it, as opposed to the front which has a white background. The back of the box is a black background again, and has the tip of the toy enlarged a bit to show its texture. The text on the back is the same as the one on the flap, with the same photo, so it feels a bit repetitive. However, this packaging is sturdy, and because the toy does not come with a pouch, I recommend storing your No. 1 inside of the box when not in use.

While the packaging is repetitive, the box is very well put together in terms of simplicity and elegance rolled into one. I know what you're thinking...it's a cardboard box. It is, but it feels luxurious in that it has a matte finish, and it presents the toy in a sophisticated style. If you're wanting to gift this toy, simply wrap the box in wrapping paper or slip it into a gift bag with tissue paper. With the toy being displayed all over the packaging, it is far from discreet.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
It's not that we don't like the toy anymore, it just hasn't seen much use in a while. The texture is nice, but for myself, I prefer something with a little more texture to it and I have a lot of other toys that provide that. This is a wonderful toy and it hasn't broken on us or anything of the sort, it's just more of a beginner toy than we normally use.
