Icicles No 24 Tentacle Glass Dildo

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.

I know it’s been said to death in glass reviews, but the No 24 really is a work of art. When I first received it, I was a bit naïve to the effect it had on me, or rather, the reason behind the effect it had on me. I have a large collection of glass dildos, but none of them have ever turned me on as much as this one does.

The reason for it is, it’s fashioned after a tentacle, and something in me is hugely turned on by tentacle porn.

I’m not even into porn as a rule, so discovering that it could work for me was quite the revelation in and of itself. But it took me a while to accept that, despite the fact that there are a number of porn stars who fall within my personal criterion of the ‘ideal man’ who produce stuff that I would totally get behind in real life, the only type of porn my mind and body simultaneously respond to features cartoon characters being fucked by monsters from the deep (whether that be the deep sea or deep space – not all tentacles belong to cephalopods), and if I’m completely honest, I’m still not 100% comfortable with it.

But that’s enough of that. This isn’t a piece about my personal struggles with what does and doesn’t turn me on. What’s important here is my love for the Icicles No 24.

Like I said earlier, this is my favourite Icicles piece. The shape is well defined and beautifully rendered in a lovely shade of soft pink. With 4 inches of insertable length, it’s not the longest dildo in the world, and even though there are plenty of other glass pieces that are 4.5 inches in circumference, there’s something about this one that makes it feel chunkier.

I don’t know if the fact that it’s flatter and therefore a little wider than other toys of the same girth that makes it feel more substantial than it actually is, or if it’s the rows of juicy raised nodules on the top, and sensuous veins on the underside that does it, but either way, I’m happy.

While the little curl on end is the perfect size for me to hold while I thrust, I do question how it would fare if I dropped it, because not only is it what I would consider to be the weakest part of the glass, but there’s a cluster of tiny little bubbles in there too. As much as this makes the tentacle appear more aquatic in nature to me, I am concerned that it could be a weak spot, so I take extra care when I’m cleaning not to drop it on anything hard.

Now, because of its glossy nature, I don’t usually need lube when I use a glass dildo, but I do when I use the No 24. A tiny amount is enough though, as too much makes the textures less prominent. In general, I’m a hit it hard kinda girl. I like it rough, and I like it fast, but not with this dildo. I like to take my time with it, making sure I feel every one of those bumps on the main shaft on the way in and on the way out, while the ones on the handle stroke my perineum whenever the angle is right.

If I want to find my G-spot I thrust the dildo from behind and the slight curve at the tip lets me press against it as hard or as gently as I like. I’ve been known to lie in a steaming bath until the water goes cold, teasing myself closer and closer to climax as slowly as I can before reaching for my clitoris to tip me over the edge, which is something considering I’m not really one for masturbating in the bath.

The No 24 is anal safe but I haven’t used it for that and I don’t think I want to. I do like textured toys for anal play, but I’m not entirely convinced just two rows of nodules on an otherwise flat toy would feel all that nice around such a sensitive area. But even if it did, I’d still think this is too beautiful for such treatment. I have other toys for that.

Cleaning glass is always easy. They can be boiled, sterilised in a 10% bleach solution or popped in the dishwasher, but I find a steep in water with an antibacterial wash that is safe for intimate use followed by a spritz with sex toy cleaner before rinsing and air drying does the trick. I use a toothbrush when I wash this particular dildo, just to make sure all the nooks and crannies are sparkly clean, paying close attention to where the curled handle almost meets the shaft.

I don’t think the No 24 is an ideal first piece of glass, because of how pronounced the nodules are. It’s in the nature of glass to be unforgiving in use, and something so harshly textured and hard has the potential to put those completely new glass off altogether if anything went wrong, and that would be a shame. It is, however, perfect for more experienced folk who love toys with texture, and for those who aren’t size queens. It would make an ideal gift for fans of Hentai, or those with underwater fantasies too.

  1. Great review, I have this toy as well and know where you are coming from with it. I love the texture and the curled end makes it so easy to hold and use. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thank you, Joanne! I’ll keep adding to my Icicles collection, but I’m not sure this one can be beat. I’m up for finding out though 😉

      1. I know what you mean. I only have the one toy from the Icicles range but it had to be this one as it just looks sooooo nice.

        I am glad that I chose this one, I look forward to reading your reviews of the others as you get them.

  2. I wish Icicles could be a bit more separate from Pipedream because their glass toys are so damn good (and affordable). Cleaning this looks like a pain in the butt though. Glad it’s worth it!

    1. Yeah, Pipedream are an odd company. It amazes me that they can get some things so right, and others so very, very wrong :-/ And yes, the No 24 can be a bit of a pain in the rear to clean, especially in the long groove down the front and where the curl almost meets the shaft, but it is so worth it!xx
