Recently, I went shopping for something new to add to my personal adult toy box. The Icicles no. 8 hand blown glass massager caught my eye. Icicles has an unsurpassed reputation for making quality pieces that are adaptable to a variety of uses, so I immediately knew I had to have it.
To begin with, it has an amazing look. Each of the Icicles products is assigned a number according to their design. Each design number has its own size, shape, color, and other features. They are each quite different but beautiful pieces in their own right. I thought number eight was particularly attractive. It is clear glass enveloping a cool swirled pattern of blues that range from greenish blue to indigo. Really pretty! Since each one is hand-made, none of the swirls are exactly alike. I was very pleased knowing that I found a toy no one else would have.
This massager is a great choice because glass is non-porous. This means that it is easy to clean and sterilize. All you need is warm water and mild soap. I would not suggest using anything more abrasive on it because the surface may scratch. Heck, if you really want to sterilize it, you could boil it for several minutes without damaging it at all. Simply use a soft, lint-free cloth to dry it off, and it will be good to go again.
The glass has a very smooth surface that slides effortlessly along delicate skin with little to no additional lubrication needed. It is also a water-proof material that is hypoallergenic and naturally phthalate-free. Those of you who have one know that it is ideal for people with skin sensitivities like me. Thanks to the fact that the glass is so thick, you can really use it hard and not worry about breaking it.
The best part of this wand is that you can adjust the temperature. That is an added bonus that other toys cannot offer, and I assure you that it is one you will love. If you find warmth to be stimulating, try running it under hot water or sticking it in the microwave for a few seconds. Just be careful not to over nuke it, or you will not be able to touch it, much less use it, until it cools down. If you like cooler sensations, submerge it in cold water or leave it in the refrigerator or freezer for a little while. I happened to try it both ways and found them equally tantalizing and fun!
At only 7-inches long, this massager is the ideal size to add to your collection. It is perfect for more advanced users like me, yet it is still humble enough for beginners. The modest one and a half inch width is very comfortable, so you do not feel too worn out after using it either. I love the fact that it has two different sized ends. These make it perfect for any type of play, depending upon your mood. I really enjoyed the intermittent bulges along its length. They provided a unique sensation that I cannot describe other than to say it was much better than I imagined it would be. This toy can stimulate the g-spot while still going deep enough to be incredibly exhilarating.
This model has a sleek design without an unusual curves or protrusions, so it stores easily. Even if you toss it in among your clothes, you do not have to worry about it becoming contaminated thanks to the fact that it is glass. However, I did stitch up a dark fabric pouch that is lined with felt and has a drawstring. It tucks neatly away in my nightstand drawer. No one knows it is there, but it remains within reaching distance for me- just the way I like it.
One word of caution: This wand does have a heavier weight to it than other dildos. The manufacturer says that it is about nine ounces. That is just over half a pound. If you have not tried glass before, this one might take a little getting used to. I promise that once you do, you will certainly find it irresistible! If cleaned and stored properly, this piece will literally last you a lifetime. I am sure hoping mine will, because I absolutely love it!
