Glass dildos are one of my most favourite things to fuck myself with, you can’t beat the unyielding rigidness and the naturally cool temperature – then you have the looks, most glass dildos are beautiful; little works of art that you could probably display within your home! I mean honestly unless one of your visitors has one of these, they wouldn’t know what the intended purpose was.
I’ve tried quite a number of the Icicle range dildos; I must have at least 30 in my collection, they’re usually quite well made and good value for money. As I have quite an impressive collection of glass, I can usually tell from looking at the picture of a glass dildo if it is going to do anything for me; most of the time I’m spot on with the way it looks to how it will feel in my hand and most importantly inside me. However there are times when I’ve looked at a picture and thought ‘I don’t have that one, it looks OK but I doubt it’d be anything special’ and I’ve been wrong; it doesn’t happen often, but it does happen.
This is one of those cases, when I first saw the Icicles 06 on the Sextoys.co.uk website, I thought it looks OK! It has quite a bit of texture, but I assumed that it wouldn’t be very girthy. I was wrong! I have no problem admitting it, I looked at the dildo and just down played it. It wasn’t until I had it on my person that I realised how wrong I was.
Out of all the Icicles dildos I have, this one has to be the heaviest (I can’t weigh it as I don’t have any scales) and the lack of girth I thought it had, just wasn’t true at all! It is quite girthy with a circumference of 4.3 inches at its smallest and 5.3 at its largest point – it has an internal length of 8.1 inches. This dildo does have a lot of texture, which is quite pronounced.
The dildo itself is a lot prettier in person than it is in any picture, the colour of the red is so vibrant and it just looks lovely standing on my side table. There is no curve, no slight bend in the shaft; it’s just straight with the added texture, but even though it is straight it produced some fantastic results. After some recent talks about the possibility of some of the colour flaking on Icicles dildos I decided I would scratch the surface with my nail. Nothing came off, I have yet to see any flakes, or the colour fading; this is after several washes and me trying to scratch it.
This dildo is perfect for me; from the first moment that I held it in my hands I knew I’d love it. The shaft itself is straight, so it doesn’t offer anything in terms of G-Spot stimulation; and honestly, I can’t quite put my finger on why it is that I love straight shafted glass toys. The Icicles 12, another straight shafted toy has been one of my most used dildos for at least two years now. The 06 has now joined the 12 on my side table, they sit side by side and compete about which one will be used.
The texture on the shaft is beautiful, it’s well pronounced and feels amazing. I found that you do have to use lubricant as otherwise the hard texture can feel quite uncomfortable. With the right amount of lubricant used I can get some amazing orgasms from this toy, it’s just perfect. The girth is amazing and the texture just feels fantastic!
Since the dildo is made from glass you can use any kind of lubricant you want, go wild; if silicone or oil based lubricants are your favourite then use them, it won’t damage the toy in any way. The same goes for cleaning, glass has to be one of the easiest materials to clean when it comes to a dildo. Just dunk it in some warm water and wipe down/spritz with sex toy cleaner. I advise that you pay close attention to cleaning in-between the ridges, as otherwise some lingering lube or gunk may just try and stick around.
With glass you have the added benefit of temperature play, to do this just sit the dildo in some warm water, or some ice cold water – if you’re feeling really adventurous you can have a tub of both Ice-cold and warm water and switch in-between (This one is best done when you’re using the dildo on someone else, or having it used on you. Have your partner blindfold you so you won’t know which one is coming) and really get your senses in to over drive.
So I do love this dildo, it feels great, but there are a few things that I don’t like. This really isn’t about the dildo itself, but about the packaging – It comes packaged in its normal Icicles packaging, yet I’m shocked to see that it still says on there “You can heat this dildo up for temperature play in the Microwave” OK yes, you can. The dildo will not break. However, please DO NOT do this, Microwaves are notorious for leaving hot spots. So although the dildo may just feel warm in certain places, it could be boiling hot in others. This is dangerous, so please be safe and use warm water to heat it up. It also advises that to cool it down, you can put the dildo in the freezer. Again please be careful, and just stick to ice cold water. We all know what happens when you put something from the freezer on to warm, moist parts of the body. Yep, it ends up sticking; I’m quite certain you don’t want a glass dildo stuck to your Vulva; I imagine that it would hurt like a bitch.
My next problem is the lack of a storage bag, yes I know you can purchase these separately, but come on! I really think one should be included.
So those are my problems with the dildo, minor really (Apart from the fantastic microwave and freezer advice, these are just dangerous) all in all this dildo is really great; and for what it is it’s inexpensive – priced at £27.95 (at the time of writing this) on the Sextoys.UK website.
If you’re looking for a lovely looking textured glass dildo, that has some girth to it; then you should really give the Icicles 06 a try. You can purchase it from Sextoys.co.uk – and if you use the code “BLISS10” you’ll get 10% off your order!
