One of our very good friend and reviewer, Let’s Talk About Sex, hosted a few Sexy Santa Workshops in Michigan last week. The educational events took place at Get Curious in Ann Arbor and Deja Vu in Ypsilanti, and featured a slew of our best-selling brands. LTASex showcased our Icicles to demonstrate temperature play, Fetish Fantasy Series Shock Therapy Luv Gloves to demonstrate e-stimulation, and Fetish Fantasy Series 8″ Hollow Strap-On when discussing erection enhancement and strap-on play, along with a slew of our other award-winning brands. We’d like to send our deepest gratitude to LTASex, Get Curious, and DeJaVu for their continued support, and wish you all the warmest holiday season and most prosperous New Year!

One of the many reasons I’m proud to work for Pipedream is the fact that we are the only major manufacturer that caters to certain demographics that other manufacturers won’t even give the time of day. As a lifelong fat kid, I’ve always had a hard time finding clothes – cute and sexy clothes, especially. Most designers want to cover us up with obnoxious patterns and way too much fabric, and this only feeds into insecurities and bad body image by forcing us to hide our bodies instead of embracing them. When reviewing our Metal Mania Teddy Set from Fetish Fantasy Lingerie, Krissy Novacaine raved about the accessibility to a plethora of sexy plus-size designs.
This design is really refreshing because it doesn’t hide my body. It flaunts it unabashedly. Fuck yes!
I hate that the majority of what is on the market (or at least being carried by retailers) is pretty, lacy sacks that obscure or flat out hide my body. Yes, I am a bigger gal. In fact, you can call me fat. I like my shape. It’s curvy. It’s sexy. It’s feminine.
Enter the Fetish Fantasy Lingerie series from Pipedream. One, it is edgy which makes my punkness quite happy, but the important thing for me is that they have each design in every size. What a fucking thought? The fact that companies only make some of their lingerie styles in plus size is fucking insulting to me. It’s like they are saying that I am too gross to wear that design, so I need to wear this to cover up my monstrosity of a body. Fuck that.
Cultural body shaming rant aside, I am in love with the whole line. Sure there are some piece in it that I maybe won’t wear because it just isn’t my thing, but by and large, Pipedream won my heart with this line.
And more specifically about the teddy, Krissy offers a fun suggestion that’ll really turn you on –
The “teddy” (quotation marks because, let’s be honest, this isn’t much or a garment, not that it is a bad thing) is a collection of metal chains that goes around the neck and back (butt). This, I can happily report is sturdy and tons of fun with a violet, neon, or twilight wand. Yes, it is electrically conductive. shiver

Wow, our super sleek and eco-friendly Ceramix Pleasure Pottery sure does look as great as they feel on this month’s cover of XBIZ Premiere! Inside, CEO Nick Orlandino celebrates our 40th anniversary, reminiscing about his start with the company in 1992 at just 23-years-old.
When I walked in here we had seven employees, now we operate on 150,000 square feet and have 250 employees… [and we're] distributed in 110 countries… We’re celebrating our 40th year and letting people know that we’re going to keep growing continuously, globally… We’re preparing to make a major announcement in September. We will be making some changes at Pipedream that will really push us to the next level.

Our Pipedream Extreme Toyz tend to sell themselves. Made of our exclusive Fanta Flesh material, it feels just as good as the real thing and best of all — no commitments, no bullshit, and no worries about knocking her up! One reviewer dutifully notes the pregnancy-free perks, and even suggests our toys be implemented in parenting!
Every man who has a teenage son needs to buy one as a gift for him. Beats having your son getting a teen girl pregnant!
Mark from Seattle, WA only continues to rave about our Fuck Me Silly Petite, going on to say:
I was truly skeptical before I bought this lifelike sex doll. I mean she really feels lifelike after you get her vagina warmed up by your lubricated semi to fully erected member… At first it will feel cold, but after slowly entering inch by inch you feel her warming up just like a real lady. The ideal position would be to place her on the corner of your bed where you can penetrate her deeply as far you’re able to do. Remember – nice and slow – you want to build up the tension within your member. What’s going to happen is that a suction will be created within her vagina where it feels like she is literally deep-throating your member. Keep at it as you’re going to explode inside her. I literally was experiencing a mind-blowing orgasm.

It’s no surprise that our award-winning Icicles glass massagers have garnered so much attention lately, especially since Women’s Health Magazine suggested the Icicles No. 8 in their latest issue. Mainstream users and sex aficionados don’t always see eye-to-eye on pleasure products, but they sure do agree on one thing — Icicles are the shit! The Director of Product Reviews over at Life on the Swingset was even surprised at her lust for our Icicles No. 31.
Having not found a glass dildo that could get me off, I was skeptical when the Icicles No. 31 showed up at the office. I had thought to hand it over to a member of my staff, but there was something about it that called out to try it myself. I am not sure if it was the beautiful blue color, the fact that both ends looked functional or that one end looked like it would be perfect for g-spot stimulation, but I knew that the Icicles No. 31 was coming home with me.
Once aroused, I introduced the Icicles No. 31 to my g-spot. Due to the bend in the massager, I was able to hold onto the handle and still hit my g-spot with the bulb. Since many g-spot toys can only be utilized by a partner, being able to use it alone makes the Icicles No. 31 more versatile.
After several thrusts, I began to hear the tell tale signs of fluid build-up. A couple more strokes had me squirting.

We gave poking your flower a whole new meaning with our Icicles No. 21. The floral design isn’t just cute, but creates a delightful sensation with its slight raised texture. As all of our Icicles glass massagers, it rates 10 out of 10 on material safety due to its nonporous Borosilicate glass. This little flower fucker is ranked in the Top 100 Classic Dildos and Dongs with an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. These superstar statistics are only cemented with this reviewer’s thoughts: “[Pipedream] always has some of the best glass toys on the market. The Icicles No. 21 is no exception.”
One of her favorite aspects of the massager is that it’s suitable for any gender to enjoy. The slightly curved shaft is great for G-spot stimulation, and the flared base makes it safe for anal, so you can take advantage of this for P-spot stimulation too. It’s dully noted that the size may be a bit intimidating to beginners, so just be sure to generously lube up and very gently ease it inside of you. Never force anything (or any body part, for that matter) inside of you if your holes seem to be too tight. Forcefully penetrating yourself can cause tears or bruising, and the last thing we want to hear about is our Pipedreamers getting hurt! If you’re not ready for a large toy, that’s okay! You just need to work up to it and train your holes by progressing with smaller items first.
She also raves about the multiple uses she’s found for her Icicle. “This Icicles No. 21 can be used for a deeper tissue massage on the body, such as the back, thighs, shoulders, calves, buttocks, and other areas of your choice, because the head of the toy is larger and can really get deep into the muscles. The toy works really great for muscles that are tense and tight.”
It appears more people like being spread wide and open than who would probably like to admit, because our Fetish Fantasy Series Spread ‘Em Bar and Cuff Set have been ranked in the Top 10 Swings and Spreader Bars, with an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Though I have mixed feelings about the book that inspired our Limited Edition Collection, it did open up a world of pleasure for tons of typically vanilla people. So after seeing this reviewer’s testimonial about how helpful our products have been for beginners, well, it just made this Sexpert’s heart flutter with delight.
“As a couple who is a beginner to BDSM gear, we love this set. It comes with everything you need including a storage bag that can be locked.” Even being fetish noobs, they found it super easy to utilize the set in as many ways possible. “…This set has so many possibilities that it will not become boring. Spreader bars are mainly used to keep your submissive’s legs or arms immobile and widely spread. This can be very helpful when torturing your sub by tickling, flogging, orgasm denial, or making them have as many orgasms as they can.” They even give a few suggestions for positions with this toy: “The first time we tried the spreader bar, my husband had me flat on my back with my ankles and wrists attached to the long bar… The second position, I was standing with my wrists attached to the small bar and my ankles attached to the long bar… The spreader bar can be used in the front of the body or the back of the body in a hogtie type of position. You can use the bars separately or together. The collar can be attached to the bars, which helps give a choking sensation.”
The item’s materials, also highly rated at 9 out of 10 for safety, proves the best choice in maintenance, durability, and comfort. “It is resistant to dirt and other dirty things, so keeping it clean is very easy. Neoprene is stretchy to a point, and it is extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time. It also breathes well, so it doesn’t make the skin overly hot or sweaty… Each session was very comfortable and pleasurable. I was in certain positions for a long period of time (30-45 minutes), while sometimes I was only strapped to the spreader for 5-10 minutes. Either way, I never had to ask to be uncuffed because the cuffs are super comfy. “
With the increasing popularity of alternative materials, we reinvented the classic strap-on by creating one for the Icicles line. The Icicles No. 36 has an overall rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars, ranking within the Top 50 Harnesses and Dildo Sets. This reviewer urges curious couples – “If you’re looking for your first harness as a couple, this is a pretty cheap, very attractive choice that is super adjustable. As long as your partner is used to penetration, this would be a great investment.”
Although the stiff material may not be suitable to first time strap-on users, you can use the dildo and harness separately until you’ve mastered the art of penetration. Whether used alone or with your partner, the curvy shape is right on point for both G and P-spots, with a flared base that makes it safe for anal and keeps it snug inside a harness. The harness itself is super easy to use. “While I have never owned a harness before, I had myself strapped in and wiggling my hips confidently within about 60 seconds. It’s a breeze to put on and adjust, so you’re not going to have to worry about disappearing for 20 minutes into the restroom to untangle yourself before sexy time.” She impressed with the sizing of the harness as well. “The harness is listed as ‘one size fits most’ and it really is. I have unusually large hips for my body size (about 42 inches) and this fit with oodles of room to spare… I think that this will easily fit about 95% of the population. You can adjust for both thigh and hip tightness, so if you have small hips and wide thighs, or wide hips and slim thighs, this is still going to be great for you.”

I know that you know that I know how amazingly incredible and awesome Pipedream is, but I also know that you know that I work here. If our plethora of awards, including the 15 accolades received last year alone, isn’t enough proof of our awesomeness, then maybe some real-life testimonies from reviewers of EdenFantasys.com, where we were listed in the Top 5 Favorite Brands of 2012, will do the trick.
I will never stop talking about our Icicles, and it’s so cool to see that other people share my passion for alternative materials and interesting designs. The IT Guy and his Secretary were so excited to finally receive our Icicles No. 18, as it’s in high-demand and always out of stock. Seems like it was definitely worth the wait — “Well we ended up liking our last Pipedream purchase [Icicles No. 13] so much that… there was not any question of what company we would look at for our new glass toy.”
One of their favorite aspects of our Icicles is that they’re made of Pyrex, so they’ve got a super high resistance against breaking. “Because of its molecular structure, it is very difficult to break, and if it were ever to break, Pyrex doesn’t shatter like regular glass… [it] actually tends to break up in big chunks instead of splintering into small, sharp pieces… [making] it safer than normal glass.”
But my favorite part of the Icicles No. 18? I’m sure you recall what a pleasure glutton I am, and those tendencies are completely satisfied with this multi-functional glass massager. Not only does it have some awesome raised bumps across the entire base (yay texture!), but you can actually use either end for penetration, and they each provide a different sensation. The curved shaft is perfect for G-spot stimulation, though I wouldn’t suggest it for P-spot play since there’s no wide base to ensure it doesn’t slip completely inside of your anus.
Five months later and this couple still loves their Icicle! “I think we actually like it even more than when we first reviewed it!”
Along with glass toys, I can feel an upcoming obsession with Shock Therapy brewing in my ladyparts. I’ve been researching the topic a lot lately, and with my recent discovery of the hands-free orgasm one can apparently achieve through electrosex, I’ve craved electricity lately more than during any blackout! I’ve consistently used our Shock Therapy device on my tense shoulders and bad back, but can’t wait to take it to the bedroom. One reviewer agrees that it’s “far more than a toy… Outside of the sexual realm, it is a fantastic muscle massager. When using it on my shoulders and neck at a low, pulsating speed, I was so relaxed after ten minutes that I almost fell asleep!”
But, hey! Don’t lose your boner, because I promise we haven’t forgotten about the sex! If you’re bored in the bedroom, you can jolt your sexcapades back to life with this device’s broad range of intensities for an array of sexual experiences. “On the lower settings, it’s an exciting way to enjoy foreplay with your partner. Dial it up a bit and it’s a sexual stimulator that can get the juices flowing well. Dialed up to the highest setting and it will please just about any BDSM practitioner who wants to get/give some punishment/pleasure.”
And you can rest assured that our Shock Therapy is just as reliable as it is useful. Three months later and “it has been nice to find out that the batteries are lasting a long time, and that the adhesive pads also last when care is taken with them.”
We all know why the once dark, mysterious, and sorta scary world of BDSM has suddenly blown up in the mainstream, so much so that two kink-inspired documentaries produced by James Franco premiered at this week’s Sundance Film Festival. Along with this mainstream acceptance, the response to our Fetish Fantasy Series has been phenomenal.
More and more people are satisfying their more sinister curiosities, as did Lori and Hubby while experimenting with our Wartenberg Wheel. “If you are curious about pinwheels, this is sure to be the perfect toy… Made with short, petite teeth rather than the standard spikes… when using this pinwheel you can be assured that there will not be pain, but rather a firm, tickly type sensation as it glides across your tender areas.”
If anything, you have to check out their review for their steamy, NSFW demonstration video.
