I have reviewed another toy from the Icicles range from Pipedream (the Icicles Rose Tentacle Glass Dildo No 24) and as with that glass toy the packaging is really nice. It highlights the features of the toy and it also features a door that opens to allow you to actually see the toy inside which is a nice touch. If I was looking through sex toys in a physical sex shop I would really appreciate being able to actually see what's inside. Inside the packaging you get a small piece of paper showing you how to register for a 60 day warranty from Pipedream, that was little disappointing as well 60 days, what's the point really. I am sure that Pipedream should be able to do better than that.
The butt plug is held securely in hard foam packaging to keep it safe in transit and you cannot help but smile when you first hold it is your hand as it is just so beautiful.
The rose coloured glass feels nice and cool and is just so smooth, it is made out of tempered glass so it's very strong and hard but having said that it is glass so be careful with how you handle it. Never drop it onto a hard surface and always check it for cracks and chips before use - just in case.
Butt Plugs can have lots of different styles of tips and this one has a very nice tapered tip to aid easy insertion. The widest part of the bulb is 3.2cm (1.25") in diameter or 10cm (3.9") in circumference and as it is a nice a small butt plug it would be ideal for someone looking for a great first time butt plug. The insertable portion of the toy is 7.6cm (3") which makes it a very nicely proportioned butt plug.
One of the great things about glass sex toys is that you can use basically any type of lubricant and I would recommend a good quality water based lube such as Sliquid H2O or even a long lasting silicone lube such as Sliquid Sassy, both of these lubes are body safe and very effective.
As with any type of butt plug you should apply lube to both your anus and the toy itself, slide some inside yourself using a finger and get into a comfortable position, I find squatting or laying on my back with my legs raised and bent then relax and slowly introduce the butt plug, if you feel pain then back off add some more lube and slowly try again. It feels amazing as the butt plug slowly dilates you and slides inside and once the widest part of the toy enters you it will sort of pop inside and this always takes my breath away.
The Icicles No 48 has a nice and wide base which stops you losing the toy internally which would result in a very embarrassing trip to A&E. The base carries a stylised daisy patterns that looks really nice and I have it on good authority (my stunt cock) that it looks amazing nestled between my butt cheeks when I am wearing it.
I have found that I can wear this plug for extended periods of time and having sex whilst it's in place is both possible and something that I strongly recommend that you try as the feeling of being so full is incredible.
Cleaning as with all glass toys is really easy, just rinse in warm soapy water and then use some sex toy cleaner to ensure it is bacteria free. Always ensure that it is dry before putting it back in its box for storage until you fancy some more back door action. You can also clean it in a 10% bleach solution or even put it in the dishwasher on a sterilise cycle but I wouldn't recommend boiling it though.
Why not try some temperature play, get two bowls one with warm water and one with cold water and experiment by soaking the dildo in one and trying it before using the other. These differences in temperature can be very kinky and enjoyable and can be used to spice up for BDSM play or tie tease play.
- Rose coloured borosilicate glass
- Nice width makes it easy to insert
- Base features a daisy pattern
- Great for temperature play
I really like this butt plug, I love glass sex toys as they just look so sensual and this one is the perfect size for both easy insertion and also extended wear. It feel incredible as you insert is because of a combination of the physical act of being opened and stretched but also the chill of the glass which you feel for a minute or two until your body warms it up to body temperature. Try chilling it before insertion for a real treat.
