Review: Tantus Curve Super Soft

TantusCurveSSBox

My immediate impression of the Tantus Curve Super Soft when I opened it to take pictures was one of curiosity. How could something so soft and flexible be a good g-spot toy? So I wiggled it around and played with it in my hands trying to discern that for a few moments before getting pictures. Then the real fun could begin. So with my handy bottle of lube…

TantusCurveSSStanding

For the first time, ever, I was initially unimpressed with a Tantus toy! I had such hopes that it would get me off like a champ being that A) it was a g-spot toy and B) Tantus has never done me wrong before. Very quickly, however, I figured out what my trouble was. I simply couldn’t get the curve of the Curve in the right spot. It was incredibly frustrating and left me reaching for a different Tantus toy to play with.

Trying to keep an open mind I left the Curve for a few days and pondered just how I could make this toy work for me. I love the Super Soft silicone formula that Tantus uses (I also have the Goliath Super Soft and love it!) and the six inch length of the toy couple with an approximately 1.4 inch diameter was just about perfect for this particular toy. I wanted, needed to find a way to make this toy work for me. So I tried it again, this time using a piece of sex furniture to try and change the angles. Sadly that was a no go as well. By this point I was well and truly annoyed at myself because I couldn’t seem to find the continuous pressure that I needed as the toy moved in and out. It felt great at the opening to my vagina, however, so that was a definite plus and one that I did enjoy quite a lot.

The shadowy looking bits are those delightful ridges.

Oh, but finally, my friends, finally I found the Holy Grail of the use of this toy. Letting my partner use it on me (without a strap on) and they could reach to get the angles that I could not. Plus that in and out bit of a pop with those slight ridges along the shaft. And it was glorious! I can only imagine how well this toy could possibly work with a strap on. Even with the bendy, squishiness of the silicone this toy suddenly became great for exactly what I wanted, as long as someone else was at the helm. I may or may not have disturbed the neighbors. Oops! If you like g-spot stimulation, but are somewhat sensitive to it or like a more gentle approach the Curve Super Soft just might be your new jam.

So overall, while I had my doubts and challenges with the Tantus Curve Super Soft it turned out to be a winner after all, although it will be reserved for use only with my partner. Which works for me (us.) I received my Curve Super Soft in exchange for a review, but you can purchase yours at www.tantusinc.com, in either midnight purple or black, for $71.63 or $69.99 depending on the color.

Review: Flexible Silicone Vibrating Dildo

When I received this dildo from www.tootimid.com my curiosity was piqued when I opened the package to reveal a somewhat wobbly g-spot toy. The vibrating dildo has a lot of give to it in the middle, which made me wonder if it would work for me because my g-spot is very picky about what it likes and that tends to be lots of pleasure…err pressure. So I charged it up via the included USB cable and away we went.

FlexibleDildoButtonsLit1

The very first thing I noticed as the toy was charging is that the lights on the buttons are an incredibly obnoxious shade of blue, one that would draw the eye if it was left, say charging on dresser and someone walked into the room. There would be no mistaking it for exactly what it is. So if you like a little discretion make sure this one is definitely put away before any company comes over. The upside to the bright lights is that once the toy is turned one the buttons are easy to see in a dark room (which I’m sure was the intent.)

This vibrating dildo has a slightly bulbous head with some slight ridges along it. Inside of me the ridges were absolutely unnoticeable and therefore unremarkable. The shape of the head isn’t bad but it is pretty basic as far as g-spot toys go. However, while I probably could’ve orgasmed from thrusting the head against my g-spot I found that the toy had too much flex and give to it for me to adequately thrust as hard or even as fast as I might like.

FlexibleDildoHead1

Beyond the fact that this toy and I simply aren’t compatible it is a nice looking toy. The silicone is smooth to the touch and while I can see mold lines where the toy was made I can’t feel them even running my hand over them. The ABS plastic handle is suitably shiny and reflective which is a nice touch, but with lube coated fingers can be a bit slippery. Another quality issue I noticed is that the motor in the end of toy sounds like it isn’t seated quite properly and while it doesn’t rattle around like it might break it is noticeable if you give the toy a good shake or flex. It probably isn’t a big deal and it didn’t seem to affect the toy’s performance, but I do like to be thorough.

FlexibleDildoFullLength1

It offers four patterns and three speeds that fall somewhere between rumbly and buzzy and the only one that did for me was the strongest speed, but even then the flex of the toy meant that I couldn’t get it in just the right spot to have an orgasm. Granted I tend to HATE patterns in my vibrators so the fact that they didn’t do much for isn’t surprising. Overall I’m going to have to make the call and say this one was a dud for me.Despite my lackluster experience, if you’d like to give this toy a try and perhaps enjoy it far more than I did you can find it at wwww.tootimid.com for $54.95.

Review: Avant D3

Peepshow Toys kindly sent me the Avant D3 Dildo  made by Blush Novelties to review and holy hell was the reviewing part fun! But let’s start with the basics shall we? The Avant D3 is hand sculpted out of platinum grade silicone (Yay for body safety!) and is seven and a half inches long with six inches of that being insertable. It is one and one half inches in width. I wouldn’t call it a small toy, but by no means does it seem to be a giant and overwhelming dildo, at least not from my point of view.

AvantD3InBox

The brightly colored stripes are beautiful and caught my eye immediately. That alone made me want to hold it in my hands and see how pretty it was. By far, I’m going to say that this is the prettiest dildo that I own. It is also made of a nice, plush silicone and has a relatively firm texture, although there is a bit of squish to it. It reminds me of a firm stress ball. My first impressions of the toy beyond the gorgeous color and wonderful texture of the silicone led me to the ridged texture of the toy itself. I couldn’t wait to use it and see if they felt as good as they looked.

AvantD3Head

The head of the toy is very pronounced and that is one of the things I love about it, however that head may look intimidating because of its size and shape. To me it looked like fun and I can feel the very generous pop and then pull slightly against my skin as I slide it in and back out of my body. It isn’t painful at all and I found the sensation to be very pleasurable. And those ridges? Yeah…they do good and happy things to my insides like glide across my g-spot in a perfect rhythm and leave me wanting more and more and more, which I eventually get in the form of an explosive orgasm or two. In my opinion the girthy head paired with the ridges along the top of the toy make it perfect for g-spotting which is exactly what it is designed for. The length of it is almost, but not quite, too much and for me that it absolutely perfect.

AvantD3Full

When it first arrived and I was examining it at my desk I was curious and immediately stuck it to the top of the desk. And it stuck. Since then, it has been stuck to a window, a plastic box, the side of a bathtub, and a wall, and it has stuck where it was placed on all of them. So the suction cup definitely functions as intended, although I’m not a fan of using it. I simply don’t find it comfortable to use a dildo that is suction cupped to anything. But I know if I want to try it again, this will be my go to toy.

AvantD3SuctionCup

I’ve spent most of this review gushing over this toy and have tried to find anything negative about the Avant D3 Dildo and in all honesty I cannot think of a legitimate complaint. It attracts cat hair like a lint roller, but it is silicone and all of my silicone dildos do the same thing. The closest thing that I have to a complaint is simply wishing that the texture was even more ridged, but that’s just because I love textured dildos, especially when the texture hits my g-spot, which, again, this toy does wonderfully. Also, don’t forget that if you’re using lubricant with it that you want to choose something that is water or oil based.

So there’s my take on the Avant D3 Dildo. I can’t get enough of it. The colors, the pronounced head, the texture and feel of it. Everything about it makes me happy. If you’re interested in picking up your own Avant D3 Dildo check out Peepshow Toys where you can purchase it for $43.00.

Review: The Dodil

dodilcanister1
The thermos container that the Dodil comes packaged in.

When I first heard about the Dodil I was curious, but also felt like it might be a little on the gimmicky side. That said, I still wanted to try it because who wouldn’t want to be able to have a custom dildo. I love that it comes packaged in a thermos container that is actually a useful part of the design and a good place to store the Dodil when not in use. I do wish the thermos or its lid was a bit taller though so it could be screwed shut for better storage. Of course, depending on the shape the toy is molded into this is a non-issue.

When I initially boiled my water and poured it into thermos with the Dodil and then waited twenty minutes instead of the thirty the directions called for because I was getting impatient, I quickly discovered on my first try shaping the Dodil that it can be more difficult than you might expect. I know my first shape wasn’t pretty, nor was it effective as a G-spot toy like I was hoping it would be. But, the beauty of the Dodil is that I was able to place it back in the thermos, refill it with water, and there I had it, a nice straight toy that I could shape and design to my heart’s content until I found what was just right for me.

Dodilstraight
Before molding

So I started designing and shaping and molding and even enlisted my partner’s help to see what they could come up with as well. Between us we came up with various textured or curved designs that when tried ended up being varying amounts of successful in the way that they helped me reach an orgasm or not. I lost count of how many configurations I tried and I’m sure that I will try many more of them in my never-ending quest for more orgasms, please!

Obviously the Dodil requires you to have a bit of patience, a trait that I am lacking, in order to let it get soft enough to mold, then cool enough to handle and for me that was a little frustrating simply because, as I said, I am not a patient woman. But seeing as this is simply the mode of action for the toy I guess I’d better learn some patience and better sculpting skills while I’m at it. My initial reaction to the included bit of plastic string to tie the Dodil into shapes was to assume that it was more than a bit fiddly and immediately discount it. But once I had some practice shaping and molding the Dodil, I found that having a way to hold it in place that didn’t involve me holding it to keep a shape or texture from coming undone was quite nice. One thing that I do wish, is that the Dodil had a bit more mass to it, not length or girth specifically just more material to work with in general, although I’m learning to work with what I’ve got!

Above: Three different shapes I tried out. Can you tell that I love curvy dildos?

I still stand by my statement that the Dodil is a bit of a gimmick where toys are concerned, but I find that it is a rather novel one. I may not use the toy frequently because it can be a more than little fussy, what with the boiling water and everything, but I feel like it has its place in my sex toy arsenal, as a tester of shapes if nothing else. We’ll see how that evolves over time. If we find something that we particularly like we can see about finding a more permanent solution. But that ability to test out various shapes and textures seems like it could be useful in the long term.

If you’re interested you can purchase the full Dodil kit at Luvoqa for $111.00 or you can check out your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.

Review: Tantus Cush O2

TantusCush1

I won my Tantus Cush O2 in a contest and am so lucky to have gotten it. It is part of Tantus’ Dual Density line that is made with a harder core and a softer outside, still using their 100% platinum grade silicone formulation. This Dual Density formula gives it a nice softness to it that makes for an excellent experience. That softness also left me squeezing the tip of it like a stress ball and giggling while I did it. The dildo itself is 7 inches long and 1.75 inches in diameter. It is also phthalate free, hypoallergenic, and easy to clean with several different options being available including boiling, bleaching, or tossing it in the dishwasher.

TantusCushFull
Out of the box

I’m usually very picky about dildos because they don’t always give me an orgasm like I’m hoping for, but this particular one has become a go to for my masturbation sessions when I’m not testing other toys. The silicone has a matte finish and some drag to it, but that is fixed with a dollop of water based lube and I’m good to go. Despite the Cush’s seemingly impressive size the tapered head allows for easy insertion and the two ridges on the shaft feel really, really good. They hit my the front wall of my vagina and my g-spot one after the other and just rock my world like no other dildo has been able to do. I would suggest this toy for anyone who likes a lot of g-spot stimulation and enjoys the fullness of a larger dildo that will fill you right up. For me it feels especially good when paired with a small clitoral vibrator.

TantusCushHead
Love those ridges!

The Cush O2 is also harness compatible so it has excellent potential for using it with a partner and the base is large enough that if you’re not using it with a harness it is easy to hold onto and thrust at the same time which again makes it really nice for partnered use. Also, because the surface is relatively firm this dildo doesn’t seem to need a lot of lube for me and if the base gets lube on it, it doesn’t slip from mine or my partner’s grasp at all. It is not suction cup or vibrator compatible, but neither of those were a problem for me.

All in all, I can’t find anything truly negative about this dildo, unless it is that it picks up dust, lint, cat hair, etc very, very easily, but that is a problem with a lot of silicone toys so I don’t seriously count that as a bad thing necessarily. It just needs a quick wash before using and then you’re all set. You can purchase the Cush O2 directly from Tantus for $84.06 or from your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.

Pounding

Brandon felt warm hands squeeze his ass and sighed with pleasure. He loved having his ass touched and played with and even fucked. His wife Ali, knew this, and seemed quite ready to indulge him tonight. She ran her hands up his back and rubbed back down slowly. He’d had a long week and she knew this would help him relax. She gave him a relaxing massage, rubbing the almond oil into his skin and felt the tension begin to melt from his body. A smile crossed her face and she knew he’d be good and ready for her soon.

For his part, Brandon was indeed relaxing, just enjoying the feel of her hands on his body. He closed his eyes and began to drift, knowing that Ali’s plans for him wouldn’t include a nap and that she would wake him. While he dozed Ali stepped away and pulled the strap on harness over her hips, fitting it with Brandon’s favorite dildo. She grabbed the lube and ran her hands along Brandon’s ass again, this time closer to the puckered ring of his asshole. She’d had his attention in an instant as he lifted his head from the bed. She teased him her delicate fingers tickling him gently before applying a healthy dollop of lube to her fingers and then rubbing against his hole before sliding a finger past the tight ring, slowly moving it in and out. Brandon wiggled his ass a little at her and she gently smacked him with the other hand laughing she did so. “Be good for me so I can fuck you properly.” He laughed,”You’ll fuck me properly anyway if you know what’s good for you woman.”

Ali only smirked and eased a second lubricant covered finger into his ass, stretching him a little, fucking him harder. A low moan escaped his lips and she full out grinned. She knew if her wasn’t rock hard by now he would be soon. “Are you ready?” “More than ready, Babe.” Two finger slipped from his ass and the couple repositioned, him with his ass lifted into the air for her and her with her very own cock ready for his delicious ass. She gripped his him with one hand and the dildo with the other, guiding it into his ass. She went slow, knowing it was just a tease for him until she had buried herself as far as she could in his ass. Again he squirmed, but this time at the simple pleasure of being filled. She nodded and slowly moved in and out rocking her hips.

Brandon gasped and rocked his own hips in time with hers and she moved to begin fucking him m like she knew he wanted, harder, faster. Both of her hands gripped his hips hard and she gave him the pounding he wanted. Then, she stopped. Brandon swore softly until she spoke. “Are you hard for me? Do you want to come yet?” His answer was a groan and he bucked his hips backwards once more. Ali smiled at his eagerness. Handing him the bottle of lube she spoke, “Jack off while I fuck you. I want to hear you come with my cock in your ass.” She resumed her fucking and she could hear the slight sound of her husband’s lubed up hand stroking his cock. It turned her on and she continued fucking him varying the speed and pace at which she moved, wanting him to last as long as possible, want to bring him all the pleasure she could. He swore again at the feeling of being fucked and was pressing his ass against the dildo his wife was fucking him with, her “cock” she called it, which only made him hotter, and slid his hand along his cock slowly, wanting to prolong the orgasm that he could feel building. Ali shifted her angle ever so slightly and suddenly he could really, really feel that head of the dildo moving against him. “Right there, please right there. You’re gonna make me come.”

His wife never stopped moving and only tightened her grip on his hips. He might have marks later, but that was OK. Brandon moaned her name and increased the speed of his hand; he knew he wouldn’t be able to help himself in a matter of moments and he hissed a sharp noise that Ali knew meant he was close. She reached around him and placed a hand over his, her movements slowing but not stopping and the sight of her hand over his helping him jack his cock was too much. He threw his head back and nearly screamed as he came. Ali fucked him through the orgasm gently then slid the dildo out of his ass. She stripped out of the harness and pulled her exhausted husband close to her. “More relaxed now?” He nodded, suddenly sleepy, and curled up in his wife’s arms as they cuddled together.

Review: Tantus Goliath Super Soft

GoliathSSBox
New in box. So pretty!

Upon seeing my newest Tantus toy, the Goliath Super Soft (not to be mistaken for the original Goliath mind you), I was immediately intrigued by the gorgeous shade of copper. It was so different from the standard pink, purple, or black that I was in love with it immediately, even before I finished opening the package. Once I removed it and got to feel how delightfully soft and squishy the Super Soft silicone is I knew that this was going to be a fun toy.

GoliathSS1

As usual, Tantus did not disappointment. With an insertable length of about 7 inches and a diameter of 1 and ¾ quarters of an inch this isn’t exactly a small toy, but I didn’t feel like it was too big either, perhaps because of the softer silicone. To give you an example of just how soft the silicone used in making the Super Soft line of toys is, I can take my Goliath and bend it in half, compress it several millimeters, and wobble it back and forth like crazy and it just returns to its original, textured shape. And it definitely has some texture, from the pronounced ridge on the head to the thick veins running along the shaft it seems like texture could be the Goliath’s middle name.

GoliathSSTexture
So much texture…lovely.

In terms of performance, the Goliath Super Soft is amazing. Feeling that ridge pop as it slides into my vagina is fantastic and makes me want to feel it over and over again; then the texture of the veins kick in. Nice, slow strokes really let me feel the veins which is delightful. All of the texture makes for an absolutely lovely sensation and because the silicone is squishier it feels like I can take the toy deeper without having any trouble with it being too hard and causing it to bump uncomfortably inside of me.

To me though, this toy really shines when playing with a partner because they don’t have to be so concerned about going too hard or too fast because the silicone is so soft and squishy. I know my partner appreciated this. The only complaints that we’ve had so far is because of the squish in the base the Goliath Super Soft can be a little harder to hold on to as it just kind of wants to slip from your (water based) lubricant covered grasp and that it can get dirt and hair stuck to it if you don’t have a bag or store it in the box. I usually give my toys a quick wash or wipe down before using them so that’s not a deal breaker for me.

GoliathSSHead
The amazing head that gives you that nice “pop” feeling I mentioned earlier

Otherwise I felt like this was a great, fun dildo to use alone or with a partner and because of the softness and texture it really appeals to me in a way that some of my harder dildos don’t because of the differences in material. It is certainly a toy that I will keep reaching for (and keeping having orgasms with!) As with all of my experience with Tantus products this one is of incredibly high quality and is designed to last. If you’d like to pick up a Goliath Super Soft you can find it at the Tantus website for $89.99 or shop your favorite body safe sex toy retailer.
