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.

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.

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.

Review: Tantus Goliath

I picked up the Tantus Goliath just because I was interested in a larger dildo. It came neatly packaged from She Vibe with no hint as to what was actually in the box.

I was excited to play with my newest toy and see just how much of it I could handle since it measures in at 1 3/4 inches around and 7 1/4 inches in length.

To start off, the silicone itself is smooth to the touch even along the veins and ridges of the toy. The head of the Goliath is slightly squishier that the rest of the toy, which ended up being a big deal for me; it actually reminded me somewhat of a stress ball and my partner came home to find me giggling and squeezing the head of the Goliath repeatedly. After  I finished playing with the toy and loving on the texture I opted to add the bullet and check out the vibrations which were stronger than I had expected from what seemed to be a pretty buzzy bullet. I wouldn’t call them rumbly, but they transmitted though the silicone well enough that I could enjoy them for what they were.

Finally I broke out some lube (non-silicone please) and made sure I used a liberal amount due to the size of the toy. If I enjoyed the texture of the toy in my hands then I loved the way the texture of the Goliath felt in my vagina.I could squeeze down and feel everything about it. And that coronal ridge…yes. Just yes.

Texture and color

As I picked up some speed I bumped my cervix a couple of times (ouch) and figured slowing down might be a good idea. It felt really good even going slower, but I wasn’t anywhere near an orgasm. So I added the bullet (again liberal on the lube), but it wasn’t really getting me any closer. I figured maybe this toy was going to be a dud for me.

Until one night I was just craving to be full and my partner decided to oblige me with the Goliath. They screwed me utterly silly with it and I had orgasm after orgasm. Apparently for me, being really warmed up is a must with this toy. I felt the tip of it even brush my cervix and at that point it didn’t hurt. I’m sure the squishy head helped a lot there.So it turns out this is definitely a couples toy for me and that’s fine. We haven’t used it with the bullet in just because it is so fiddly to get back out and I’m not sure I want to mess with it. This toy is much better used as a regular dildo rather than a vibrating dildo for me.

Overall, I’ve nothing to be disappointed about in the Goliath and I think anyone looking for  a longer, girthier dildo would be quite pleased with it. It retails at Tantus for $88.70 and it appears, according to a quick search, that She Vibe no longer carries the toy. At any rate this is an excellently crafted toy from the Tantus crew and I know I’ll be ordering other toys from them in the future.

Review: Njoy Pure Wand

I’ve had my njoy Pure Wand for roughly three years now and I haven’t stopped enjoying it. It is what I like to call my first real sex toy because everything else to date had been stuff from Spencer’s or other sketchy shops and they were all made of potentially non-body safe materials. Oops! And then my partner gifted me with one and half pounds of solid, medical grade stainless steel that is ten inches long with a one inch diameter ball on the small end and a one and a half inch ball on the other. I was a bit intimidated when I first opened the bright pink satin lined black box.
