Tantus is one of those manufacturers that will always have my heart. As I sit here, I have a box of Tantus items that I’m eager to review. Unfortunately, having only one vagina, I can only try them one at a time. First up is the Cush O2.
A little bit about it: The Cush is part of Tantus’s O2 line of dual density silicone. The toys have a squishy soft outer layer, and a much firmer inner layer. Tantus describes it as feeling “Even more real than real.” Uh… Not quite certain what that means, but sure.
The Cush itself comes in a choice of 3 colors: candy (pink), ice (blue), and twilight (purple). The length is approximately 7 3/4 inches long, with 7 of that being insertable, and just over 5 1/2 inches around at it’s widest point.
What I loved: Let’s start with the overall aesthetics of it. The toy is freaking gorgeous, people. Yeah, I know, I’ve said that about a lot of toys lately, but I happen to have just hit the beautiful toy jackpot in the last month. Seriously though, LOOK AT IT.
But you can look at photos and see that. What you want to know is how does this duel density stuff feel? I can honestly say it feels like no other toy I’ve had before. When I took it out of the package, for a while all I did was play with it in my fingers. The outside is, in fact, quite squishy. Not quite jelly dildo squishy [side note: you should not own a jelly dildo!], but almost. But there was only so much give because the inside is so solid. The feel in my hand was so fascinating, that I practically thrust it at Husband when he came in the door and demanded that he feel it, too. He’s a good sport like that.
Despite it having a soft outer, you can still clean it the way you would any other 100% silicone dildo: wash it, spray it with a bleach solution, boil it, run it through the dishwasher. Take your pick.
But how does it feel? Amazing. I do happen to like larger toys, and this toy is just big enough to be ever so slightly challenging, but not so much that it’s a problem. The soft silicone outer with it’s slight give is so comfortable. A little water based lubricant and I’m ready to go.
Even though the shaft is not very curved, the girth and shape of the head allow it to still hit my G-spot without too much of an issue. Enough that I can orgasm from it? Yes.
What I didn’t: If there was one thing I wanted to change about the toy, I’d love to have it curved ever so slightly more. At the same time, Tantus does make curved O2 toys, like the Adam, which I’ll be reviewing later.
The only other thing I want to mention is what I brought up briefly before. It’s their slogan of “…designed to feel EVEN MORE REAL THAN REAL.” [Emphasis theirs]. This is a nitpicky thing, and admittedly has more to do with marketing and less to do with the toy itself. The thing is I usually only see that kind of slogan on low end toys, the kinds with mystery materials, questionable safety, and packages covered in porn stars. So, when I read the description of O2 toys before writing the review in order to refresh my memory, I cringed a little. Sex toys don’t feel real. They feel like sex toys. And that’s fine. That’s awesome. Although my love of all things Tantus continues, I thought it was a weird statement coming from them.
Final thought: The Cush O2 retails for just over $80, and it is worth every penny. High quality silicone will last a lifetime if properly cared for, and when you combine the fact that the Cush is silicone, feels amazing, and has that fantastic soft outer layer, while having an inner layer that allows it to still be rigid enough for decent G-spot play? Oh so worth it.
Thanks to Tantus for allowing me to review the Cush O2!
