Have you ever looked at an anal toy, and not read the specs carefully enough? And then, because the toy was so pretty you decided you had to have it? And of course, the incredibly generous people over at Babeland decided to send it to you. Then, you take the toy out of its box, and you are shocked by the weight and size of it in your hand. You already have a name for it.
Okay, the Icicles Glass Plug isn’t the biggest toy in the world, but to an anal beginner like me, it was a bit intimidating. I will say that I have learned a valuable lesson: never order any anal toys without double and possibly triple checking the size. Whoops.
Still, I’m persistant. This thing was going to be in my butt one way or another. Maybe not too soon, though. It became my new challenge. For a while, this toy sat by unused. I spent several days working with my smaller toys trying to learn to relax my muscles enough to use this. Up until I got this toy, I’d been using 1.25″ in diameter toys. The Icicles Glass Plug comes in at a whopping 1 3/4″ in diameter.
This is the box the toy comes with. Unfortunately, the toy doesn’t come with a padded bag or anything like that to store it in. Instead, the box has a foam insert which the toy fits perfectly into. You could use the box to store the toy without any issues, but I find that the box is a bit too big and bulky, so I crocheted a little anal plug cozy for it. Since the toy is made out of Pyrex glass, you can heat or cool it using warm or cold water. Sensation lovers, rejoyce.
Pyrex glass is compatible with all types of lubricants. Pick your pleasure, but whatever you choose, use a lot of it. I used silicone lube, and I literally held the bottle over the top of the toy and just let it run in streams off the toy. Lube is your best friend with this toy. Don’t skimp.
In order to get this bad boy in, I had to warm my butt up. A lot. We’re talking a whole day of anal play, followed up by Gigantor. Did it slide right in? No, not even with all that warm up, but it went in smoothly and with very little pain. It did hurt me a bit when I was getting past the widest part, but once I was past that, I was good.
Now that you’ve got the toy in, what do you do with it? Well, I found that the toy was uncomfortable for wearing during vaginal intercourse. It also is not the type of toy you could wear during an outing, because you can’t sit on it due to the large size and hardness of the retreival ring. However, I found that the toy felt wonderful while I was naked around the house walking around doing chores. It also is a great toy to wear during masturbation, with a vibrator on my clit. It is very smooth, and has quite a safe and sturdy base so you don’t have to worry about it getting lost inside you. It gives you a nice “full” feeling, and every step you take you notice times ten. Wonderful.
Cleaning this is simple. It is glass, so you can boil it for a minimum of three minutes, use a ten percent bleach solution, put it in the top rack of your dishwasher, use soap and water, or even a toy cleaner. If you sterilize this properly, there’s no reason why you can’t share this between playmates. After all, glass is not porous.
I love this toy, but I recommend it for intermediate and advanced players only. Because it takes so long to get in, I don’t think it’s going to see a ton of action from me. Although, that is very likely to change as my anal training progresses. I’m giving it five paws:Thank you so much, Babeland, for allowing me the chance to try out this toy in exchange for an honest and fair review.
