Tantus rarely has a miss when it comes to their fabulous dildos.  Colorful, versatile, artistic, and highly pleasurable is the Tantus way.  I’ve never had an issue with them, and I’ve tried a lot of Tantus toys.

A little bit about it: The Tantus Slick Large is a 100% silicone dildo, made out of O2 dual density silicone (flexible on the outside, rigid on the inside).  It comes in purple or black, is waterproof and harness compatible.

What I loved: The Slick is what I consider to be the perfect size and shape for me.  I have a thing for well-defined, bulbous heads in dildos, and usually recommend them to G-spotters like myself.  The head is perfectly shaped to slide right up against my G-spot.  The girth and length are big enough that it’s satisfying, but not so large that I struggle with insertion.

The shape is a little bit unusual compared to other dildos for two major reasons.  First, instead of the shaft being straight to the base, it tapers from larger at the base to narrow just below the bell of the head.  This is neither here nor there for me personally, but if you like a slow stretch, you’ll love this little design feature.

Second, the head is pointed, like a teardrop.  I found this makes insertion super easy, not only for vaginal penetration, but for anal penetration as well.  Mind you, I’m not a huge fan of anal penetration via dildo myself (plugs are more my thing if I’m in the mood), but I have used it to peg with a harness.  Anal play of any sort can be difficult, especially if you are a beginner.  [Safety note: follow all safety rules for anal play to prevent injury, and for great resources on pegging, read some of Ruby Ryder’s work over at Pegging Paradise].  But something my partner and I noticed is that the tapered, teardrop shaped tip makes insertion far easier than with a standard, rounded head.  And with it being harness compatible, anyone that incorporates strap on sex into their repertoire can rejoice!

The silicone is oh-so-lovely, and by far my favorite toy material, and I usually believe the less give, the better.  I like toys that are relatively solid (all the better to hit my G-spot with), but I always make an exception for Tantus’s O2 materials, which the Slick is made of.  The silicone on the outer layers is soft, pliable, and comfortable, while the core is more solid with just some give.  It’s the best of both silicone-wrapped worlds.

What I didn’t: If I had to pick a thing, I suppose I wish it came in more colors.  I’m partial to blue.

Final thought: Worth it.  It’s not too big, not too small, not to hard, not too soft.  Ok, yeah, it’s the Goldilocks of dildos.  Tantus lists it for $89, but silicone will last a lifetime with proper care.  If you are looking for a tried and true standby for your toybox, this it.
