It’s pink. It’s glass. It’s a tentacle. What more can I say? This little wonder is a surprisingly dynamic toy but at it’s heart it IS a pink, glass, tentacle dildo!

Perfect for your undersea adventure fantasies

Sometimes you need just the right toy to build up the fantasy you want to play with during intimacy.  This can particularly be the case if your fantasy is something a little less mainstream than penile penetration.  Tentacle fantasies can be fairly common, and erotica relating to tentacles dates back as early as the early 19th century.  If you’re intrigued by tentacles and are looking for a toy that might help those fantasies really come closer to life, the Octopussy Dildo (also known as the Icicle) may be just what you’re looking for.

The Octopussy is a 6-1/4″ long,  7/8″ wide dildo made of hand-blown Pyrex glass.  It has a rosy quartz hue, a series of rounded bumps on the top, and vein-y ridges along the bottom edge.  It also, thankfully, has a curved finger-loop on the smaller end to help control and hold the toy.  Due to the curved loop end, only about 4-1/2″ of the toy are actually insertable.  Finally, note that the toy isn’t perfectly circular, but rather is wider than it is tall, giving the insertable end a slightly flattened look.

Since the toy is made from glass, the Octopussy is a very firm toy.  Also, glass gives the toy a unique slickness when it is lubed; the combination of the slippery smoothness of wet glass combined with the heavy texturing gives the toy a feeling unlike most others.  This makes the finger-loop on the Octopussy a particularly important addition, as slick glass can be very difficult to keep a grip on.  With the loop, however, the Octopussy is easy to control even when slick.

The glass nature of the toy also makes for interesting play possibilities.  It can be immersed in cold or hot water to lower or raise its temperature to match your fantasies or just play with sensations.  Also, the glass makes the Octopussy easy to clean, and it can even be boiled for sterilization. Pyrex is a pretty sturdy glass (as those of us who use Pyrex cookware know), but you’re still advised to be careful when using the toy near hard surfaces to avoid chipping.

Though the toy is clearly meant to be insertable, its nice texture lends itself well to being rubbed along the clitoris and labia when it’s slicked up.  It could also be used for anal play, since the finger-loop provides a thick enough base that it is safe for anal use; however, it should be used very slowly and gently, since the glass has no give to it, and the heavy texturing may prove to be a bit much for some.

The only possible warnings or downsides about the Octopussy have been stated before.  Namely, care needs to be taken when cleaning it, as dropping it in the sink and chipping it would mean that the entire toy needs to be tossed.  And, again, the texture on the Octopussy is heavier than on many other toys, particularly since it’s made out of hard glass, and so those who are sensitive to texture may find it a bit overwhelming.

Overall, if you’re looking for something tentacle-related, or a glass toy that has lots of texture, the Octopussy may be just what you’re looking for to help it feel better down where it’s wetter.

  1. Thanks for the washcloth in the sink tip. I’m very clumsy and it’s a wonder I haven’t already chipped my dildo. I’m very careful with it tough.

  2. My pleasure! One of my family members taught me that trick ages ago for washing delicate glass serving pieces and dishes – it’s been handy info in so many ways.
