Icicles No 18 Glass Dildo

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.

I know, I know, Pipedream can be a jaw-droppingly distasteful company at times. Some of the stuff they put out there is inappropriate to the point of being shockingly offensive. But I give credit where it’s due, and the Icicles line is definitely one of their better design choices.

Approximately 7.5” in length with a girth of about 5”, the Icicles No 18 is a user friendly size. I’ve read a few comments recently in which folk claim that lengths over 5” are too long. Their reasoning is that the average vagina length is 4.75” when fully aroused. But even so, the ‘too long’ thing doesn’t sit right with me. Too much girth is an issue I can understand, but not length. I mean, you can’t control how much a toy stretches you, but you have absolute control over how much of it you take in. Anything you can’t insert becomes handle, and handles are good!

The Icicles No 18 has a shape that many people will have seen before; double ended with a bulbous teardrop tip and a double balled base. Even at their most basic, glass dildos are nearly always lovely, but the Icicles No 18 is a real eye catcher. It’s nothing new in terms of form or size but, in my opinion, the way it’s been decorated sets it apart.

The slim, clear shaft is peppered with twenty deep blue nubs that stand out from the dildo by around half a centimetre. Sitting pretty inside one of the round balls is a gorgeous little red flower. That attention to detail turns something that could have been just another glass dildo into something that would be a perfect sexy gift. I’m a gal who loves to receive sex toys as presents, and I’d have been delighted if the Fella had handed me one of these.

But no matter how pretty a dildo is, it’s nothing if it isn’t deliciously fuckable. Luckily for the Icicles No 18, it definitely is that.

The first thing I fell in love with about this dildo was the tip. G-spotting is so ridiculously easy with this thing I can’t even begin to tell you. A bit of lube, a cheeky little stretch on insertion, and then once it curves around my pubic bone it’s in the zone. The size of the tip ensures it’s always in contact with my hotspot, and the hardness of the glass makes stimulating it the simplest thing ever. Just jiggling it up and down or rocking from side to side gives me exactly what I need. I can lie there for ages, slowly building up to a squirting orgasm.

Thrusting while I jiggle adds so many new dimensions to my play, too, and brings the climaxes thick and fast. Firstly, the length lets me easily stimulate the insanely sensitive area behind my cervix, resulting is geysers of gushing fluid whether I’m coming or not. Switching between that and g-spot stim is amazing enough, but on top of that there’s those little blue nubs. They may be small, but when repeatedly thrust in and out of my vaginal opening they start to feel mountainous. They drag, push and scratch, but in all the best possible ways. Tilting the No 18 lets the nubs at my perineum too, adding just a little bit more to an already amazing fuck.

And that’s just for vaginal play. Switching things to anal (which I’m comfy doing because of the double balled base) brings new levels of excitement. Standing the No 18 in iced water for a bit before lubing it up and inserting it has helped me achieve so many lovely anal orgasms. The coolness makes everything feel tighter, so the dildo feels bigger, and the tip remotely stimulates my g-spot while the nubs tickle my anal opening.

I must confess that using this dildo anally isn’t always a painless experience. If I get too carried away – which I often do – it feels like there’s a bit of tearing going on. Those nubs are rough on the old butt, so I have to be careful.

Clean-up is as simple as running the dildo under water and giving it a rub down with a soapy hand. I do that, or if I’m being lazy I spray it with toy cleaner and give it a wipe down with a cloth. I keep all my Icicles toys in their original packaging cos I think it’s gorgeous, but if you prefer bagging your stuff you’ll need to provide one yourself.

If you’re into textures, temperature play or just glass dildos in general I reckon you’ll get on great with this toy. Some people will say it’s over priced for what it is because you can’t see its prettiness while you’re jamming it in your orifices, and I admit that I wouldn’t have been able to justify the cost if I was buying for myself. But I’d buy it as a gift for a friend without hesitation, and as I said earlier I’d have been delighted if the Fella had bought one for me as a gift. Sometimes visual appeal is worth paying for, and this is one of those times in my opinion.

If you’d like to get your hands on some flowery glass, you can pick one up here.

  1. Of the icicle dildos I’ve seen, have to admit, I’m not a fan of the blue nubs on the clear glass. Love the flower though! Different strokes for different folk 🙂

    1. They’d have looked better in a different colour – or even no colour – for sure. Still, they do their job and they do it well and that’s all we want from ’em isn’t it.x
