Icicles No. 17 - dildo by Pipedream - review by ellieprobable

Stunning in more ways that one

This is one of the sexiest toys in my collection and it isn't just another pretty face. The performance of the Icicles No. 17 lives up to its gorgeous looks.
Intense g-spot stimulation
Can be hard to "release"
Misleading care instructions on packaging

extremely useful review


The Icicles No. 17 is a gorgeous, glass G-spot or P-spot dildo. This toy can be used anally or vaginally and during either solo or partner play. Because it is glass and the bulb is relatively large, this toy may be best suited for those that are experienced with G-spot or P-spot play. The length of the toy means that thrusting needs to be done gently.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of hand-blown borosilicate glass (which you may know by brand name Pyrex). This is a type of glass that is very strong and safe for the body. Many people are afraid of glass toys but as long as they are diligently cared for and inspected before use, they do not present a hazard during normal play. The design of this toy is beautiful with nearly opaque cobalt glass in the shaft and flared base and clear glass with a gorgeous floral motif in the bulb/head. It really is just as stunning in person as it is in the product pictures.

Glass toys are very hard and therefore can be used for temperature play. The hardness of this toy makes the G-spot stimulation especially effective.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The shape of this toy is quite ergonomic as the curve allows for a good grip on the toy while reaching the G-spot. The bulb is more rounded than many G-spot dildos and this let me pivot the toy 360 degrees without drastically changing the placement or orientation of the head. The size is significant and those with strong PC muscles may find that they "hold on" to the toy after orgasm. My husband had to tell me to "let go" when he was using it on me and it was time to remove it. However, the size also contributes to the effectiveness of the toy. I like the feel of this almost as much as my Njoy Pure Wand. At less than half the price, that makes Icicles no. 17 a great bargain.

This toy is discreet in the sense that it looks like a beautiful piece of art glass. You could probably set this on your coffee table and people wouldn't think it was a dildo.
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play


This toy is incredibly enjoyable in both solo and partner play. It has a satisfying weight to it and hits the right places. I did not enjoy it as much for thrusting and preferred to use it for small movements in the G-spot area. It is not compatible with any harnesses or suction cups and I would never recommend that use for glass toys anyway.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Glass toys are easy to take care of because they are non-porous. They can be cleaned with mild soap or toy cleaner and warm water then dried with a lint-free cloth. They can be sterilized with a mild bleach solution or rubbing alcohol. I have also boiled glass toys in the past. However, be very careful about drastic temperature changes with your glass toys. The manufacturer recommends bringing the toy up to temperature slowly as opposed to thrusting it into boiling water. You can also put it in the dishwasher! I store my toy in the original packaging because of the high quality of the foam insert that keeps it safe.

It is very important to carefully inspect all of your sex toys before use but that is especially true with glass. If you find cracks or chips, sadly the toy is no longer safe to use.

One of the fun things about glass is that you can use all of your favorite silicone lubes with it as the material is compatible with all types of lubes.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Icicles packaging is beautifully done and very classy. It would be absolutely suitable for gift giving as it features an artful photo of the toy on the front and has a magnetic door that then allows you to view the actual toy. The packing is also very secure. One thing to be aware of with the packaging is that it advocates putting the toy in the freezer or microwave for temperature play. These might not be entirely safe practices. In fact, Pipedreams (the manufacturer) contradicts this advice on their own blog. I would err on the side of caution and warm or cool your toy with much more subtle methods that they recommend in the linked post.
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

This has quickly become one of my favorite toys unseating some of my favorite G-spotters. The fact that it is gorgeous and sexy to look at is just a happy bonus. I'm giving this toy an enthusiastic 5 stars as I think it is a stunning value and of excellent quality.
