Icicles No. 14

This review contains affiliate links.

Pipedream‘s Icicles line of glass sex toys contains beautiful pieces. Glass is a wonderful sex toy material because it’s nonporous, hypoallergenic, compatible with any type of lubricant, easy to clean, and stronger than many people think it is. Many glass toys, including Icicles toys, are borosilicate glass, which is essentially Pyrex like the casserole dishes in my kitchen. Borosilicate glass is less dense than soda-lime glass, so toys made from borosilicate glass are likely less heavy than toys made from soda-lime glass. Fucking Sculptures toys are soda-lime glass. Glass toys are some of the best toys for temperature play because they become very cold and very hot. However, warm and cool soda-lime glass sex toys gradually. Be very careful when using glass toys for temperature play. To avoid injury, never freeze or boil glass toys immediately before use. Because glass is nonporous, sanitized glass sex toys are shareable. Clean glass sex toys by boiling them; wiping them down with sex toy cleaner, a wet wipe, or a 10% bleach solution; washing them with soap and water; or placing them on the top rack of the dishwasher without detergent. Although many people worry about glass sex toys breaking inside them, glass toys are actually very safe when properly taken care of. The vast majority of glass toys are solid. Be careful not to drop glass toys on a hard surface when using or cleaning them. For example, if a glass toy hits the sink during cleaning, it may crack or chip. If soda-lime glass warms or cools too quickly, the same thing might happen. Always inspect glass sex toys for damage before using them. If a glass toy shows damage like cracks or chips, don’t use it for safety reasons. When they are properly taken care of, glass sex toys can last forever.

     I bought Icicles No. 14, which is a “hand-blown” or “hand-crafted” glass toy, from eXtreme Restraints. eXtreme Restraints sells glass and steel dildos and has a small selection of Icicles toys. All Icicles toys have numbers rather than names, and there are more than 65 Icicles toys in the entire line, including realistic shapes and several glass vibrators as well as glass floggers and ball gags. Icicles No. 14 arrives in a box with a magnetic flap on the front. The flap has a satiny ribbon for a handle.

     Underneath the flap, there is a window through which the toy shows. While there are no models on the box, there are pictures of the toy from several angles, so the packaging isn’t as discreet as it could be because it’s obvious what’s inside. This toy rests in a large block of white foam that keeps it safe in transit, and I store my Icicles No. 14 in the product box when I’m not using it.

     Icicles No. 14 measures 5.5″ long from end to end with 3.25″ of insertable length. This toy is 5.5″ around at the bulb’s widest point with a neck that’s 3″ around and a handle that’s 2″ across.

     Made of solid glass, this toy is everything its box says it is – elegant, luxurious, and sleek. The toy has a curve, which is great for G-spot stimulation. However, the curve of this toy isn’t as extreme as the curve of the njoy Pure Wand. Icicles No. 14 is completely seamless and incredibly slick when lubricated, so only a small amount of lube is necessary. This toy has a sizable handle, so it’s safe to use as a butt plug because it won’t get lost. In fact, I usually see Icicles No. 14 sold as a plug, even though it’s also a dildo. The only thing that surprised me was this toy’s size. My first impression was that Icicles No. 14 is quite large for a butt plug. I have a vibrating Doc Johnson butt plug that’s way smaller, and it isn’t made of solid, unforgiving glass. The photo below shows my Doc Johnson plug, Rocks-Off’s Little Cocky, and Icicles No. 14.

     Icicles No. 14 is a substantial – but not all that heavy – toy, and I worried about anal penetration with it because of its size. The photo below provides a size comparison using common objects for people who don’t own the sex toys shown above.

     I think this toy is great as a dildo for vaginal penetration. The box calls this toy a “hand blown glass massager,” and it doesn’t mention anal play at all, in fact. Icicles No. 14 is one of the most versatile toys I own, and I decided to start with vaginal penetration because of its size. I didn’t need to use lube because I was wet enough. Glass toys don’t tend to require much lube because the material is so smooth and doesn’t absorb lube. However, this toy is relatively girthy and gets thick fast, and I needed a few attempts to slip it inside me. I even had to spread my labia to insert it, but once this toy was inside me, it felt perfect. It fits my anatomy so well, and the hard glass provides a lovely feeling of fullness. The material doesn’t give at all, so it feels amazing to squeeze. The size of Icicles No. 14 is perfect for me to use as a dildo. The glass warms to my body temperature, and the heat feels very sexy. I love this toy’s large handle. I can fit three fingers through the handle, but only two fingers fit comfortably.

WP_000776 WP_000775

     Not only does the handle make this toy safe to use anally, but also the toy’s curve puts the handle in a very important spot for me. With the toy inserted vaginally, I rubbed my clitoris in circles and noticed that my fingers tapped against the handle each time they came around the bottom of my clitoris. The light tapping on the handle moved the toy from side to side inside me, and the movement enhanced the pleasure I felt from touching my clitoris. I made a conscious effort to tap the handle with each circle I made over my clit.

     Although I have attempted to use this toy as a butt plug, I’ve never been able to insert it all the way. It’s just too large for me, and it’s definitely not for anal beginners. After warming up with my fingers, the Little Cocky, and a dildo, I tried to insert Icicles No. 14, and I slowly and gently pushed it almost all the way inside. I wasn’t able to fully overcome the wide bulb without feeling discomfort from the stretching, so I stopped and have accepted that I’ll likely never use this toy as a butt plug. However, as I said, I’m perfectly happy with the way Icicles No. 14 fills my vagina. It truly is a versatile toy, and I would still highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for an inexpensive glass sex toy.

     Overall, Icicles No. 14 is simplistically beautiful, and I love holding it.

     I can tell that some thought was given to the toy’s design. The handle is large, which makes the toy safe for anal insertion. It’s versatile and gender-neutral. Its size is fantastic for vaginal insertion, and the toy’s curve provides G-spot stimulation. However, this toy is large, so for people who are new to or inexperienced with anal play, I’d recommend something smaller that’s made from a less unforgiving material than glass. I love glass as a sex toy material, and this toy is a high-quality toy for a good price. To read more Icicles No. 14 reviews, visit Bean Fiddler, Sex Toy Geek, or Property Of Potter.

Pros:

  • Icicles No. 14 is borosilicate glass, so it’s nonporous, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean.
  • This toy is shareable.
  • Glass toys become very slick when lubricated, so a small amount of lube goes a long way with glass toys.
  • Glass is a great sex toy material because it’s strong, and this toy will last forever when properly cared for.
  • This toy in compatible with any type of lube.
  • Icicles No. 14, like all glass toys, is fantastic for temperature play, which adds novelty and dimension to sexual activities.
  • This toy is the perfect size for vaginal penetration. I feel slightly stretched and full when I use Icicles No. 14 as a dildo.
  • The toy’s curve provides G-spot stimulation.
  • Icicles No. 14 is one of the most versatile toys I own. Use it as a butt plug as well as a dildo.
  • For a glass toy, Icicles No. 14 isn’t expensive. I think a $25-35 price tag is definitely appropriate.

Cons:

  • The size of this toy may intimidate some people if they intend to use it as a butt plug. Its size makes it inappropriate for beginners.

Rating:  8.5/10

    • Yeah, it’s too bad I wasn’t able to use Icicles No. 14 as a butt plug. That doesn’t mean it’s not a great toy though, and I’m sure there are people who love this toy as an anal toy. You’re right about glass being practical and functional as a sex toy material. It’s one of my favorite sex toy materials for the reasons you mentioned as well as the fact that it’s body safe. I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to fit Icicles No. 14 in my ass, but I have a smaller glass butt plug from Crystal Delights that I haven’t tried yet. I’m sure it’s a more appropriate size for me.
