Quickie Review: Tantus Anaconda

Despite the fact that more than two years ago I offered up one in a giveaway, and despite the fact that it’s on my “best” list I never managed to do a proper review on the Tantus Anaconda dildo. Because it’s a dildo and doesn’t “do” much, it gets a Quickie Review. What makes the Tantus Anaconda so special? The handle. Often, we use the harness base or the balls (if the dildo has either of these) as a handle, but with the Anaconda (and the Echo Handle, and the Goddess Handle) you have 4″ of nothing but HANDLE! I don’t have tiny hands, so the length of the handle is perfect for met. There’s 3 subtle ridges, too, to be extra sure you’ve got a good grip plus the handle has a textured finish to also aid in grip. Finally, to be sure it’s anal-safe, the handle flares out to a bit of a

Tantus Vibrating Harness Review

For a long while now, Tantus has had their signature strap-on harness play kits designed to get you right into the swing of things. The “Bend Over” kits are more aimed at pegging, with the straight, untextured Silk dildos. You could also get the Flame kit or the Curve kit, but what if you already had a harness-compatible dildo that you and your partner were enjoying but just wanted to dip your toes into the waters of wearing a harness? Strap-on harnesses usually come in two varieties: The high-end creations that will fit beautifully and look amazing, but come with a high price tag that frightens away the newbies OR the cheap, low-end harnesses that are sometimes made entirely out of dodgy plastics or harsh, stiff-edge leather that chaffs. For an extremely affordable $35.99, however, you can grab a very versatile harness to see if this is your thing. The same harness that they offer

Heeldo Review

I’ve seen the Heeldo bopping around the industry for a few years, and was always curious. I finally got a chance to review one to see if it would work out like I thought it would. Yes. And no. Many would probably laugh at the concept, and I do laugh at the thought of donning the Heeldo to be used on someone else (gives new meaning to the eloquent term “cunt-punt”), but for masturbation it could be really great for some people. I, as you know, have troubles with thrusting a straight dildo. But I do so love my Tantus dildos and while their bases usually do a decent job of acting like a suction cup, I don’t have any surfaces in my house that are suction-cup friendly. So I thought that the Heeldo would be my ticket to improved self-fucking. Sadly, it was not meant to be for me. You really just cannot have

The Split Dildo vs The G-Vibe (FunToys)

Months ago I reviewed the G-Vibe, a split vibrator that reminded folks of the aptly named (both for the obvious, and for how divided the fan base was) Split Dildo. I had read a number of reviews that stated that the Split Dildo was actually painful to use, so I was surprised by how boring and subtle the Funtoys G-Vibe was to use. Recently a Split Dildo became available on ToySwap and I grabbed it up for no other purpose than this comparison review. Dedicated, I am. While the Split Dildo is noticeably fatter than the G-Vibe, the biggest different is in the pliability of the silicone and the pressure  aspect – by that I mean the amount of pressure it takes to keep the closed ears split and therefore the amount of pressure they will exert as they try to fall back into their natural state. It took me awhile to figure out how

Tantus Raptor XL Dildo

I wouldn’t say that the Tantus Raptor XL is the absolute largest dildo I’ve owned (the Vamp Greta and Njoy Eleven win that title) yet somehow, at first, the Raptor XL still managed to look and feel as intimidating as those afore-mentioned 2″ dildos. The Raptor XL is 1.75″ wide, and made from a pretty damn firm silicone. The “what sets it apart” factor is the design of the base & balls – which isn’t something I personally care about since I won’t be using this in a harness, just on myself. But of course, the question remains… is it awesome to use? I’d have to give a hearty “Absolutely!” on that one. I’ve discovered over the years that I, personally, prefer my dildos to be pretty damn firm. That’s just how I like it. If you’ve already determined that that’s not how YOU like it, then you won’t love the RaptorXL (or even the

Vixen "VixSkin" Raquel

For a long time, I wasn’t interested in dildos. After all, it was in 2008 that I found the Pure Wand and everything after that felt so boring. But as soon as I learned the great brands of the silicone world, Tantus and Vixen, I kept my eye on them. Vixen is consistently the more expensive of the two US-based silicone dildomongers, and they also seem to favor the realistic designs which are not my cup of tea. They’ve always had a couple, though, that were in non-realistic colors and slightly less realistic shapes. After giving up hope on trying a Randy, I kept my eye on the others. Finally I decided on the Raquel, but I knew I wouldn’t personally like it. Yet I still got it. What? I just really wanted to own a Vixen dildo, to be able to have this brand and their super-awesome VixSkin style in my hands so that
