Who Needs A Dozen Roses? Icicles No.12 Review

 No need for a dozen roses when this one won't wilt and die on you! This rose also known as the Icicles No.12 keeps on giving even after you have reached orgasm. The wonderful folks over at Pipedream sent this over in my goodie box a month or so back. I love this piece I have been lusting after it for YEARS literally, it would go in the cart an it would come right back out of the cart at checkout cause I wanted something so much more. Want to know more?! Read on to find out how it worked for me......



Use/Overview
The Icicles No.12 is a decorative dildo that is very discreet in a sense that you could set it on your headboard, nightstand or anywhere really an no one who isn't a sex toy guru would know what it is. Some people may just see it as decorative glass piece you have on display. It is made out of pink and clear Pyrex glass. The No.12 can be used by men and women alike since it has a flared base at the bottom of the shaft, with a flared base it can safely be used anally. This gorgeous piece's head is shaped like a flower, it isn't your typical bulbous or phallic head so it is a little awkward to insert. As you can see the shaft isn't slim all the way down it slims down then bulges out then slims down again an continues the pattern til it gets to the base.
I like that there isn't much that distracts from the head of the wand and that is slims down some in between the bulges I will explain why on that one later in my experience section. The No.12 has a decent length to it. It measures in at 7 3/4 inches long with an insertable length of 7 1/2 inches, having a longer length helps when using it alone. The circumference is around 4 3/4 inches with a diameter at 1 1/5 inches at the widest part of the toy. Downfall is one of the biggest parts of the shaft is the head so you can start slim and work up in size. Since the No.12 has this type of base I believe that it would easily work with an O-Ring in a harness for pegging fun or if you wanted your partner to penetrate you using this gorgeous piece.
Please note since this material has NO give to it and is very hard, use with caution. Voice what you like and how fast, slow or hard you want it if you are using this with a partner. Using it too roughly can cause bruising of the anus or cervix. 

Material/Texture

The Icicles No.12 is made out of Pyrex glass also known as Borosilicate glass, yes just like the cooking dishes you bake your brownies in. Pyrex glass is very durable an can take on a lot but you still have to be careful with it. With the No.12 is made of glass you want to make sure you inspect it before and after each use, make sure there are no scratches, chips or cracks. If there are scratches on the surface that can catch your nail or skin you won't want to use this as it can cut the vaginal/anal tissue which isn't good. If there is a crack or chip you will want to discontinue use and contact customer service about their product warranty you will want to make sure you register your products!!!! Skimming over the warranty info it doesn't give me much to work with to tell you what is or isn't covered so make sure you contact their customer service department. 

Pyrex/Borosilicate glass is a nonporous, latex free, pthalates free, hypoallergenic material. All the above means that it is body safe and won't hold in bodily fluids or let out harsh chemicals into the body. The Icicles No.12 can be sterilized and shared between yourself and your partner(s) if you choose to. Make sure you follow the cleaning instructions in the Care Section at the bottom of the post to find out how to sterilize your wand. 

If you like temperature play Icicles is a great way to partake in that. You can either warm or chill down your No.12. There are specific ways to do this, the instructions on the packaging I DO NOT agree with and I will explain that. 

To Warm Up Your No.12 
You will want to either run it under hot/warm tap water or soak it in a cup of hot/warm tap water. Let it soak for a few minutes to take in the warmth of the water temperature. Touch this to the inside of your arm to make sure you will be able to handle the temperature of the warmth. **Note your anal/vaginal tissues is MORE sensitive so it could feel hotter once in use**

The Icicles box suggests placing your No.12 into the microwave, PLEASE DO NOT do this as glass heats unevenly an what feels okay in one spot will not in others. Stick strictly to warming up your glass via hot/warm tap water.

To Chill Down Your No.12 
You will want to run it under cold tap water or place it in a cup of ice water. Doing this will keep it wet where it won't stick to your insides like you see happening in movies with the, pole and tongue in the snow. I don't know about you but I don't want something sticking to my insides, which brings us to what NOT to do to chill it down. 

The package suggests to place the wand into the freezer, this will chill it real quick BUT, it can also make it where it gets icy an stick to your skin.

When it comes to texture the No.12 is pretty smooth for the most part. You do have some texture in the top part of the "head" where it makes what would be the petals on the flower if it were real. Some of the petals feel a little pointy but not to where you can feel them during use. Down the shaft is smooth but you have bulges that pop up then straight parts adds to the pleasure.


When doing temperature play make sure not to take your No.12 from one extreme temperature to another. Going from hot to cold can weaken the glass causing it to easily be broken. When Pyrex glass breaks it doesn't shatter it breaks in to big chunks. You don't have to so much worry about it when chilling an then warming to body temperature. The temperature deal mainly applies to boiling it to sterilize it then chilling it. 



Packaging

I absolutely LOVE the packaging for the Icicles line as well as other Pipedream packaging. The No.12 is no exception to this, you will get a elegant box with tasteful photos of the dildo on the box. When it comes to the front of the box there is a little ribbon hanging to the side you can pull up on this to reveal the No.12. There is a peek-a-boo window in the front of the box which I love. Once you open the box you will find a protective styrofoam insert where the wand rests. I love that there is a cutout that is the outline of the wand so it fits snuggly in the foam so it doesn't slide around during transit to you. You can also use the styrofoam insert as well as the box for storage to protect your No.12 from getting damaged. I would say that the box is tasteful enough for gift giving but still not appropriate to give in front of people IF the receiver doesn't want others knowing they use adult products. The package has plenty of info on it about how to care for the wand as well as how to partake in temperature play. I really wish Pipedream would remove the microwave and freezer options when it comes to temperature play. I have seen others voice that it is unsafe to do temperature play that way. 

Care & Storage

When it comes to glass it is pretty simple to care for it since its nonporous an has no motor it can be sterilized. There are a few ways you can clean your No.12 but only a few will sterilize it where it can be shared.
-Antibacterial Toy Cleaners
-Toy Wipes or Baby Wipes
-Warm Soap & Water


**These ways sterilize your Icicles No.12 for sharing with your partner or to sterilize in general

-Boiling In A Pan Of Water For 10 Minutes**
-Top Rack Of Dishwasher**
-10% Bleach Solution Soak For 10 Minutes & Rinse Thoroughly**

When cleaning make sure you clean it really well as bodily fluids can get caught in the creases in the "head" where the "petals" come together. You could easily use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean that part really well. 

Storing is simple you can either use the package that it arrives in or purchase a toy pouch that many online toy sites offer. You can also easily make a toy pouch as well. 

You can use any lubricant you want with glass. 


Experience

I had a very positive experience with my Icicles No.12 an wished I had actually gotten it sooner. With there being a round head that tapers off my kegels would lock around the bud of the rose. It felt amazing but was also a pain in the rear to get it to release. It was easy to use with the length as well as the design. Most toys with a girth of 1.5 inches doesn't work with me I was able to make this one work better then I have other thicker glass toys. With a perfect amount of a hybrid lube I was able to make this work perfectly. Also even though it isn't designed for G-Spotting if I bent the shaft down just right I could get the round part of the head to hit just right. I am so glad that Pipedream sent me this off my list.
