No. 28When I opened the box from Pipedreams, I had no idea what they sent me. When I saw they sent me the Icicles No. 28, I groaned. I had flash backs of my horrible experiences with the Awesome Blossom. Still, I shook my head, and thought, “This could be different.” It was different, but not by much.

No. 28 tip

Pipedreams is a California-based company that produces toys in a variety of materials such as glass, aluminum, ceramic, plastic, and rubber. They also make other products such as whips, restraints, novelties, and more. They pretty much make a little bit of everything. The Icicles are made from borosilicate glass (in other words Pyrex), this means it’s non-porous and completely sterilizable. You can clean it with bleach, alcohol, soap and water, or boiling. Keep in mind, if you boil the glass, it’s going to be hot as fuck. So be careful. That being said, if you plan on using the No. 28 for temperature play be mindful of how long you keep it in warm water. If you leave it in for too long and if the water is too hot, you can seriously hurt yourself. The same goes for freezing your glass. Cold water should suffice.

Some quick measurements:

Height- 6 7/8″
Insertable surface length- 7″
Base- 2 3/8″ x 2″
Head diameter- 1 1/2″
Shaft diameter- a hair over 1″ (without swirl), 1 5/16″ (with swirl)
aaaand, the listed weight is 10 oz (without packaging)

No. 28 upper halfI’ve used the No. 28 about 6 different times. Each time I’m left disappointed and with an irritated vagina. When I say irritated, I don’t mean that my vagina was telling me, “You know, I’m trying to be nice, but I’d really like it if you were to stop now.” It means my vagina gets irritated like I get irritated, “Put it the fuck down. I don’t know why you keep doing this. You already know what’s going to happen. Just fucking stop.”

As I stated before, seeing the No. 28 brought back the horrible memories of the Awesome Blossom. When I was using it, it was nearly the same thing. Not that it was like using a cheese grater in my vagina, but it was definitely jarring. When using a glass toy with swirled texture, I feel like my urethra and my labia minora are being pulled. Not like the toy is pulling them as one, rather it feels like it’s grabbing little bits of skin and they’re being pinched.

The head has two lines in it that can be seen in the second picture. I have no idea what purpose they serve. They catch on important flesh, and collect debris. The base of the No. 28 is anal safe, but proceed with caution. The texture may be intense. The curve of the No. 28 is very slight. Even when I would put the toy in place, and tred to grind it into my g-spot, it wouldn’t work. It lacks the angle that I need.

This may work for other people. It may just be my vagina saying, “NO”, every time I pull it out. Either way, this toy is pretty to photograph. Not that that is a valid reason to buy a glass toy. “Oh yeah! It doesn’t work, but damn look at the pictures I took and can only show a very select amount of people! Totally worth it!” To be perfectly honest, it drives me nuts when a toy that I don’t like or despise photographs extremely well. The No. 28 is a perfect example of this. When it comes to functionality? If the texture is what you’re looking for, go ahead, give it a shot. If not, you’ve been warned.

Thank you Pipedreams for providing me with the Icicles No. 28 free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I have this and used it in conjunction with a Njoy plug once and somehow my skin got pinched and twisted between the two and it was one of the most excruciating pains I have ever felt! Great review, TJ– thank you.

  2. I love that last image! It’s a shame you didn’t get on with it but I have to agree – it does photograph wonderfully well.

  3. I was cupping my own vulva and sympathizing with yours the entire time I was reading this. I do not want to experience what you experienced. I can’t even imagine the pain you must have had when those two lines on the head pinched and scratched your vagina…ouch. Ah…I would hug your vagina if I could. =(

  4. I’m wary of all glass toys with any sort of texture, but they tend to look so cool or pretty I forget to be suspicious. Thank you for reminding me to be careful. I am sorry you were hurt though. Vaginal pain is a special sort of Hell!

  5. I have no 63 and it pinches also, it is fine if it is lubed up well and stays stationary!
