My birthday is coming up, and there are two things I like more than anything during sex; a little pleasure, and just the right amount of pain. It’s even better when there is a way to put both of them together in one toy. The Icicles 38 brings both worlds together perfectly. For those of you not familiar, 38 is a glass dildo with a bulbous end, perfect for g-spot, and anal penetration. I was a little on the fence with a straight dildo, because I normally have a lot of luck with curved g-spot toys, but this one completely changed my mind. I have had great experiences with glass in the past, my favorite one being Icicles No. 18, so I am glad I got the same results with yet another one.
When I first got it, I thought the bulb at the end was going to be too big, but it was just the right size. Despite the handle being straight, I was able to rock the big bulb back and forth right on my g-spot. It took me about 5 minutes before I was able to squirt, which isn’t an easy feat for me with internal stimulation alone. The swirls within the handle didn’t really add to the experience of the penetration, but my partner said while he was using the flogger side, it was a great grip. The great thing about glass toys is no matter where you leave it, upon insertion it is always going to have that coldness until it finally warms up while you’re using it. Also, being glass, I was able to use Uberlube, which happens to be my favorite silicone lubricant.
The flogger side was amazing! I loved everything from the smell of the leather, to how it felt being slapped against my bare skin. My partner tried the first couple of whacks on my ass and then moved to the most sensitive parts of my body like my inner legs, arms, and across my chest. The leather from the toy stung and left a small red mark which went away pretty soon after we were done. He went between hard whacks, soft whacks, and lightly brushing across my skin. It was easy to maneuver and the weight was just right in his hand. I don’t think I will be able to ever get regular birthday spankings again.
I would say overall it’s a great idea for combining the best of both worlds, however, I can see where it might be a little frustrating to change up at the spur of the moment. I feel like a towel might need to be nearby when using this product. Going from using it as a toy, to using it as a flogger, you would probably want to at least wipe it down in between. Since the handle is glass, it might become a little too slippery with fluids and could possibly fly out of your hand.
Overall if you’re looking for a nice leather flogger which also functions as an amazing g-spot toy, look no further than the Icicles 38. Not only is it great to play with, but like most glass toys, it is beautiful to look at. It’s also body safe, and compatible with any lubricant. The easiest thing about this toy is cleaning. When the fun has ended just throw it in the dishwasher and call it a night.
