Icicles 38 – Glass dildo that doubles up as a flogger

posted by LSB April 25, 2018 3 Comments

There is something so kinky about a toy that has double uses and we both wanted to try out Icicles 38 because he wanted to flog and fuck me with it and I wanted to flogged and fucked! So it really seemed like a win-win situation!

Question is – did the Icicles 38 win me over?

I’m actually gonna start this review with negatives sadly. Yanno when you have wanted to try something for so long and when you finally pull it from the box you discover it’s been badly finished 🙁 Yip, sadly it’s one of those times! The flogger end of the Icicles 38 is poorly finished – it says it’s leather but I’m unsure. And if it is leather is a cheap kind that leaves bits everywhere once you move it. Yes, move it – you don’t even actually have to use it. I’ll get over the bits but what really annoyed was the finish of it all. The band of material around the glass was actually starting to come away (visible in pic 2 underneath) and it was the first thing I saw as I retrieved the piece from its padded protective sleeve. I was automatically gutted. Why go to the bother to make an item and finish it so badly?

The next to annoy me was the strands were still stuck together, as you can see in pic 3 below. I had to go through each one individually and separate them ALL. How bloody frustrating!!

 

The last but not least thing I dislike about the Icicles 38 is, it packs zero punch! Well, I guess that statement isn’t 100% accurate. Let me explain! As I’ve wanted this piece for as long as I can remember it really had high expectations to live up. So much so once I had released all the sealed strands I started to hit myself with it repeatedly while my OH who was showering at the time looked on, quite amused at my masochistic outburst.

And let me tell you, dear reader, there was some force between each hit but I was getting nothing in return but frustration. I even went as far as hitting areas I don’t let pain – my lower legs and front of my thighs for example and I didn’t even flinch! I’m unsure if that’s because we recently have been enjoying this flogger and this one is just so tame in comparison but so far the Icicles 38 from a flogging point of view was just simply pathetic.

The next few tests would involve doubling up the use of the Icicles 38 – would it be more successful if I was flogged and fucked with it in the same session?

If you read my Plunge or Buck Dich review, you’ll already know impact toys can double up as insertables are very much my thing. Not usually one to enjoy textures though, I did wonder how a very textured Icicles 38 and I would get on?

Surprisingly well, now that you ask! The textures aren’t overly prominent so in use, with a dash of extra lube, just to be safe but let’s be honest here, I didn’t really need it after being flogged. The Icicles 38 feels rather awesome – the coldness of the glass combined with thoughts of knowing it had just been used to flogged was a rather pleasurable experience.

The flogger end, I guess, in the heat of the moment packs a little more punch, however, I personally would be really disappointed if I purchased this toy considering how poor the rest of it was made.  I am genuinely gutted I can’t love this piece as it’s a toy I have coveted for a long time. I guess is where the Pipedream factor of quality comes into play – some Pipedream toys are known to be poorly finished sadly this seems to be one of them.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank TooTimid for sending me the Icicles 38 in exchange for an honest and impartial review this however in no way changes my opinion on the item. What I honestly think, you read! All images displayed of the Icicles 38 are taken by myself!

Thanks for the review Switch. I’ve looked at this a few times and wondered. Now I need wonder no more! (Sigh) It did look pretty though…

I am gutted it’s been finished so badly. I am gonna get my OH to mend so it doesn’t unravel more but you shouldn’t have to do that with a new toy. x
