My enthusiasm for dildos is never ending. I love to look at them almost as much as I love to use them, especially if they’re pretty. I am fond of realistic silicone dildos, but there’s just something about glass that I keep going back to time and time again. In fact, my most regularly used dildo is a £10 curved glass one. Recently, I was able to cross something off my dildo lustlist that’s been on there for ages: The Icicles No 18.
If you read my recent Tantus Plunge review, you’ll know I have a thing for multi-purpose sex toys. Toys that, with the flip of the wrist, can change from an object of pain to an object of pleasure. For that reason alone, I’ve had my eye on the Icicles No 38 Glass Dildo with Leather Cat-O-Nine Tails for quite some time. Now, thanks to the fabulous Uberkinky, I have one in my clutches. Well, the Fella’s clutches, but you know what I mean.
Whether it’s warmed in a bowl of hand hot water, or cooled to near frozen in a bucket of ice, glass is one of the most intensely sexy treats you can ever give to one of your orifices. Some of my strongest orgasms have come from using a glass dildo, and the ArtsClair Mon Grand Amour by You2Toys has been responsible for many of my most recent ones.
Since Scandarella started picking up momentum, I’ve slowly built up a little list of companies I’d love to work with, so I was extra delighted when one of the first companies I’d put on that list agreed to forward me a product to review.
While I’m aware that Pipedream are a morally questionable company, I have to give praise where it’s due, and I have nothing but praise for the Icicles range. Out of the half a dozen or so pieces I own, this one – the No 24 – is my favourite. It was my first Icicles piece too, gifted to me by a friend a couple of years back.
Pipedream. How can a company with such questionable ethics create a range as beautiful and individual as Icicles? Understanding of the thought processes that can produce as much elegance as they can offence eludes me, but the fact is, they’ve done it, and some of my favourite glass pieces come from this very range. Including the Icicles No 5 Blue Spiral Glass Dildo.
