Icicles No. 12 - sex toy by Pipedream - review by AAAToyGirl

A Beautiful Distraction

This glass toy is so beautiful; I would have bought it for that reason alone, but it is wonderful in so many other ways. I am so glad this toy is made in such a way that it will last me a lifetime.

extremely useful review


The Icicles #12 by Pipedreams is a hand blown piece of art. It is exceedingly beautiful; it's as much fun to sit there and admire it as it is to "play" with it. It is simply stunning; I find myself taking it out of its storage bag with every intention of masturbating, and I end up just sitting there touching this beautiful Pyrex glass rose over and over.

Once I get past this beautiful distraction, and I finally get to using the toy, it is just as dreamy as the toy looks. This toy is absolutely great for hitting my g-spot; the textured rose petals are a bit intense to start with, but once I get going, I am glad they are there, as they provide just a little extra oomph.

I think this toy is great for vaginal use, but I would not recommend it for anal. If the person were really experienced with anal it might work out, but the texture of the petals could cause problems for this application. One should also be careful when getting hot and heavy; since this toy is glass it would be very easy to bruise your cervix, which isn't very much fun. This toy could also double as art or a body massager and is also great for temperature play.

I actually inherited this toy from my best friend; she sanitized it and told me that it was just too much texture for her. She gave it several tries, but she couldn't get the toy to work for her. She said that she desperately wanted it to work, but between the girth of the rose and the texture, she just couldn't get used to it. I love it, so I think this will be a person to person thing.

Material / Texture

The Pyrex glass on this toy is hand blown wonderfully. There isn't a single error in my toy. It's smooth and doesn't have any bubbles. It's also very strong; I've already dropped my toy once from about five feet onto carpet and it didn't get damaged at all. I like how well this toy holds temperatures; when using it from room temperature, it quickly warms up with my body's heat.

This toy is also great for those who love temperature play; you can place it in a bowl of hot or ice water for a few minutes to get different sensations. It's also safe to place in the freezer or microwave, but I would be careful of such temperature extremes; just make sure to test the temperature of your toy before you play.

I think this toy could work for everyone from beginners to advanced users, but I think beginners should be careful of the texture of the petals. The bulbous shape of the rose is also great for g-spot stimulation. I also love that this toy is made of such a safe material and will last me a lifetime.

Design / Shape / Size

I love everything about this toy. As I stated earlier, the design is both stunning to look at and to use. I think it works exactly as it was intended to. It is simply great for g-spot stimulation and it has a base that makes it safe for anal use, if one so desired. The girth on the rose feels like a bit much at first, but with enough lube and the right mood it is just perfect. My friend, who is abnormally tight, had trouble with the girth and texture on this toy, so I can see how it might be a bit much for some. Personally, I am very happy that I inherited this beautiful rose.

    • Discreet look/design
    • Whimsical / artistic


I think the thing that stands out most to me about this toy is its flawless beautiful design; it is a classic that will never go out of style. I am a bit OCD about my possessions being as perfect as they can be, and the Icicles #12 passes my tests.
    • Easy to use
    • Timeless

Care and Maintenance

Unfortunately this toy does not come with its own storage bag, which is a shame. I believe that such a high quality toy should come with its own bag. Luckily I had an extra Sugar Sak lying around to keep this beauty safe. Before use with any of my glass toys, I check for any damage to make sure it is still safe for use; I find it better to be safe than sorry.

After use I clean with soap and hot water, wipe dry, place in its storage bag and then in with the rest of my toy collection. I take extra care not to drop it or bang it against other glass toys.

Since this toy is made of glass it can be used with any lube you wish. I only use water based lubes, so I only have experience using water based lubes with this toy. It's only a preference, but I have found that of my water based lubes, Maximus seems to work best with my glass toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Icicles #12 arrives beautifully packaged, in a gorgeous box with professional photos and tucked away in Styrofoam shaped to the toy. This box worked great as storage, until I realized I had an extra storage bag lying around. It would also be very easy to gift wrap this box, or give it as is, because it looks classy.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
Follow-up commentary
Since I got this toy, I've bought several more glass toys. Out of all of them, this is my favorite. There is just something about the textured oblong shape of the rose that works extremely well. This is the only non-vibrating toy I own that can dependably get me off. I liked this one when I got it, but now...I really do love this one.
