Icicles No. 24 - dildo sex toy by Pipedream - review by Airen Wolf

Tentacle Or Tongue?

Texture and glass, what a combination! Temperature play and lots of stimulation to the nerve endings is what the #24 offers. While it's looks are slightly out of this world don't hold that against it because it loves to play and is actually very sweet! Glass lovers will want to display this most unusual piece shamelessly if they can get it out of the bedroom.

Unusual shape,
Amazing material choice
Could break if dropped,
Large size,

extremely useful review
Some say this looks like a tentacle, or a squid penis, but I think it looks like a tongue! The Icicles #24 by Pipedream is one hunk of glass that will make texture lovers rejoice.

The pink monstrosity begins with texture, adds in some great size and then ends with a toy that looks like it should be on display as a modern piece of art. The clear glass, sinewy curves and raised nubs draw the eye and make the fingers itch to touch. I swear half the pleasure of playing with this toy is touching and stroking it! In use it feels larger than it's actual size, which might be a detraction for those players who prefer a smaller, slimmer toy. Really though? It's worth trying simply because of the unusual textures and the absolute awesomeness of glass.
top side
The toy measures in at around 6.25 from the blunted, round tip to the top of the curled handle. Since the handle actually extends down and away from the body of the toy almost all of the 6.25 inches are insertable. This is a wider toy than the usual glass toy measuring in at nearly 2 inches wide.
Now what makes this glass toy so unusual is the nubs, raised "veins" and curling handle. The tip of the toy is blunted to prevent bruising during thrusting. Keep in mind that this is a glass toy and is completely unforgiving. What I recommend is a slow thrust with maybe a slight rotation so that you can appreciate the many textures of the toy. The nubs begin at the tip of the toy in two rows down the "top" of the toy and continues in regular intervals over the top of the toy and down to the end of the curl at the handle. Now that is not all that this lovely toy offers as there are raised "veins" on the underside of the toy, which is why it looks like a tongue to me! These veins are less prominent than the nubs but are quite easily felt if the user goes slow during thrusting. The veins don't continue over the toy like the nubs do, but are, instead, clustered at the base of the toy farthest away from the handle.
The handle of the toy is curled to allow the user or a partner an easy way to control the toy in use. It is also large enough to allow a slim vibrator or a large size bullet to be slid inside for a change of pace. The glass will carry the vibrations fairly well throughout the toy.
side view
Ok, so now you have a visual guide to the look of the toy, what does it DO? The girth means the toy gently stretches the vagina. It's not so girthy that it causes pain or discomfort for most users, vaginismus sufferers aside. The nubs stroke the walls of the vagina from the beginning of the thrust to the very end. If the user pauses and slowly rotates the toy while it is inserted the veins on the base of the toy can be felt. It is fairly easy to apply some lovely pressure to the G spot, or just lightly stroke over it depending on your personal preference.
If a vibrator is placed inside the curl of the handle then light vibrations are added to the sensations!
Glass toys are perfect for temperature play and the No.24 is no exception. Warm it gently in some hot water, and test on the inside of your elbow so you know you don't have to too hot. Cool it equally gently in some ice water for a different sensation. I, personally, don't recommend putting the toy in the freezer but it is made of borosilicate glass (think Pyrex) so it's unlikely to do it any harm. My concern is the tender tissues of the vagina.

The toy feels amazing as a massage device in combination with a good massage oil. I have planar fasciitis which is essentially an inflammation of the tendon that runs over the bottom of the foot. Years of standing on my feet for over 18 hours have left me with flat feet which puts pressure on the tendons and causes spurs. What I like to do with the #24 is put it in the fridge until it is cold. I slather on a thick, high quality foot cream and place the toy on the carpeted floor. I firmly run the bottom of my foot over the toy and feel the pain begin to melt away. It works well heated up gently and rubbed over sore back muscles, thighs and calves. I would avoid the less padded areas of the body or use gentle pressure.
Cleaning the No.24 is as simple as a hot water wash with some soap. This is a glass toy so it's completely non-porous, but the user might want to have an old toothbrush on hand to scrub away detritus from around the textures. A commercial toy cleaner or a 10% bleach and water solution can also be used but really, nothing more intensive is needed. If can be boiled or put in the dishwasher but that seems like a lot of work for nothing.
Store your glass toy in a padded bag, a small box or even rolled up in a pair of socks. I highly recommend not storing the toy where it could bang up against other hard objects. It's very unlikely to break or chip but a little care doesn't hurt!

I usually put a disclaimer on non-anal insertion safe toys but I realize this might be a wasted effort. The curl of the toy is large enough to hold onto, tie something to, or for a partner to control the toy. The user should realize that this doesn't have a flared base and so IS a hazard for anal insertion. I, personally, do not use it for anal play and I urge caution to those who might try.
Follow-up commentary
Displaying my more unusual glass toys is something I prize and this toy brings the best reaction s because it is so unusual looking. I call it modern art and spin some strange tale of tongues or tentacles....yes I know I am slightly odd. The toy hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear despite being dropped numerous times while cleaning.
