Personal Experience

My Personal Experiences with Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo

My first impression? WOW. Just simply WOW. This Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl is beautiful and heavy in weight. The flared base end was one of the next things that caught my eye. This is what I like to look for in a toy, this can give it a variety of uses! My favorite part of this toy by far is the temperature control. Since it is glass, you can run it under hot water to heat it up, or cold water for a chilly thrill! The one thing I didn’t like about it was the stiffness. It is glass, so there is no room for bending or flexibility of any kind, but it does make for some satisfyingly firm internal stimulation.

Design

The design on the Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl is beautiful, and also functional! The blue spiral going down the shaft provides extra stimulation, and helps you hit your big O faster!

Ease of Use

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Ease of Use

This toy can be a little challenging for a beginner. The head of the Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl is a bit on the bigger side, and you may need to work up to it. I found that using a hybrid water/silicone lubricant with no condom was the easiest way for me. You can explore with what makes it easy for you! It is a little heavy, so someone with a grip issue or a weakness in the wrists may find this toy difficult to hold after a longer amount of time.

Quality

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Quality

The quality of the Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl is great! It's made of good quality heavy glass, and there isn't any sign of chips or cracks. Upon close inspection, there doesn't seem to be any flaw in the glass itself; it is free of bubbles, impurities within the glass, and discoloration. With careful handling, this may be the most sturdy toy in my collection!

Price

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Price

The regular price listed for this dildo on the Pipedream website is $51.67. I actually picked this up on sale at my local sex shop for $39.99, and it was totally worth it! Besides the cheap feel of the box itself with the flimsy wannabe cardboard, the snug foam and the toy itself was already worth the money! It didn't come with anything in the box besides the toy and packaging, however, but there were some basic care instructions in the description on the back of the box.

Performance

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Performance

When I picked the Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl up from my local shop, the lady behind the counter had mentioned to me how she owned one and how much she loved it! When I got it home to try it out, I quickly discovered that I had fallen in love with this beauty too! I wasn't prepared for the size of the head at the beginning, and had to prepare with my favorite lubricant. But afterwards, again, WOW!

Packaging

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Packaging

The packaging wasn't too much to look at at first glance. A white background, black text, and a photo of the toy graced the front. The WOW factor came to me when I opened the little peek-a-boo magnetic door. On the left was a nice close up picture of the toy, showing off its design, and on the right was your brand new toy peeking at you from a little window; like a kitten at the pet store, it was begging you to take it home! Around the window was a beautiful patterned design. It didn't come with any separate papers or instructions, but on the back of the box you can find some basic cleaning instructions, and suggestions on how to alter the temperature of your toy.

Materials and care

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl Dildo Materials and care

Icicles No. 5 Blue Swirl is made from non-porous glass, which makes sanitation much easier for the user. It is fully glass, feels very high quality, and has a nice weight to it. It's waterproof, so perfect for in a relaxing bath to get rid of that workday tension. The recommended cleaning method on the box suggests using their brand toy cleaner and warm water, or even the dishwasher, but I find an antibacterial scent free soap and warm water is perfect. My only gripe with this toy is the slit at the base of the head is a little deep. I use my fingernail under a washcloth to get the soap in to clean it properly.
