Icicles No. 5 from Pipedream was the first glass piece I ever picked up. I’m talkin’ months ago, before I understood toys that didn’t vibrate. I tried it once, and found it overwhelmed my vagina. At the time, I still hadn’t quite figured out my G Spot or how to stimulate it properly.
So, now that I’m more used to both glass and dildos, I figured it would be a good time to try again. And I have to say I was moderately impressed.
The No. 5 is pretty basic. It’s a glass dildo (though Pipedream loves to call them “massagers”) that stands at about 7.25″. It has a slight curve to it, and deep blue ridges all down the body. The curve is just bit too slight for my tastes, but it does find my G-Spot and the ridges add some extra oomph where the curve lacks.
The No. 5 occupies that middle territory in the girth area, it’s not what I would call slender but I also no trouble with insertion and because it’s glass, it’s slick and easy to use. I do have to push down on the base for it to really pummel my G-Spot the way I’d like it to, but the ridges are pretty decently spaced and wide which gives makes it rise above the mediocre . But, even throwing my G-Spot to the wind, the No. 5 feels good. Like really good.
Now, I get this question way more than I would like to, so here it goes: Is glass safe? Will it break off inside me?!?! My initial reaction to this question is always the same: glass is a hell of a lot safer for you than the hot-dog of sex-toy materials, jelly, which is porous and often filled with platicizers and toxins and only the good Lord knows what else. Glass is hypoallergenic, compatible with any type of lube, easily sterilizable, and unless you have some sort of superpower or a powertool in there that I don’t know about yet, your vagina or ass is not going to cause the toy to break. Because glass is firm and strong, it is a great material for G-Spot or prostate stimulation.
Glass is also known for its ability to hold temperature, meaning if you expose it to warmth or cold it will remain warm or cold. So in the name of empirical dildo research, I popped the No. 5 in cold water for a few minutes, you know, for science.
While the back of the box says you can put it in the freezer, I recommend heating up or cooling down this toy with water. I’m not a big fan of heat so I can only speak to the experience of it cold. While it might sound bizarre or scary at first, I’ve always found my cunt, in general, to be a very warm place, and the idea of something cool sounded more pleasant. Like a popscicle, only for my vagina. I think I like it even better cooled down. Playing with temperature added to the overall experience by adding and intensifying sensation.
Now, the orgasms. Hmmmm. It kind of shocked me how quickly I would almost reach orgasm, using it along with either the Sensuelle Point or We-Vibe Touch but then….er….there really wasn’t much of a release. So, I kept trying, and did have some strong ones later on. Still, it doesn’t compare to my beloved Comet Wand, however, it is easier to insert (and remove I should say as getting the Comet Wand out is a bit tricky at first) and brings me to orgasm quickly. Like, I said before glass is usually super easy to clean. One should be careful and give extra attention to the ridges of this toy because stuff gets stuck under them. It also has this bizarre inexplicable ridge behind the head. Be sure to get in there with a swab or Q-tip.
All in all, I was impressed by the Icicles No. 5, and would say that it’s a solid choice for it’s price point and effectiveness.
