The Tantus Realdoe Feeldoe is made from 100% pure silicone, and it is a completely body-safe material. The silicone has a softer and less dragged feel than most of the Tantus silicone toys to give it a more realistic feel. It doesn't feel like the Tantus O2 material, but it also doesn't feel like the regular Tantus material used in their dildos. It is a smoother feel, and while it doesn't move with any dual-material features like the O2 material, it feels more realistic than the other Tantus toys.
The silicone material is very flexible, but it is not plushy. The dildo can bend slightly, but it doesn't bend more than about 20 degrees. The entire dildo is made out of the same material: both the shaft and the insertable bulb. The silicone material has absolutely no smell nor taste to it in case you are interested in also using the dildo orally. Silicone material is also sterilizable and non-porous which means that it can be used with multiple partners.
The material tends to produce a bit of drag if just used with bodily fluids, so it is suggested that you make sure to cover the dildo thoroughly with lubricant before attempting insertion. It will make the experience much more comfortable and pleasurable.
The Realdoe Feeldoe is a large toy in size. The shaft (from the ridging near the base) is 6 inches long. The bulb is about two and a half inches long with an extra inch at the "retention area" (where the bulb gets smaller in diameter). The bulb is about 1 and 1/3 inches in diameter while the shaft is about 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter. The dildo weighs about a pound. Keep in mind that, with most people, an inch of insertable length will be "lost" due to size of the two bodies together, so you get about five inches of insertable length on this dildo.
The Realdoe has a lot of design features to it. The bulb itself is free of any texture, and it includes a little retention area intended to help make it easier to keep this Realdoe in during the span of penetration. Underneath the bullet hole, there is an indented area which does not affect use or pleasure. Towards the base, there are three large ridges which the giver will feel during use. There are realistic veins along the shaft of the Realdoe, and depending on your sensitivity, these veins can be felt during use. However, they are not overdone; they are a soft texture addition to the dildo. The Realdoe has a realistic head as well which, for some users, can create that pleasurable "popping" sensation during insertion.
The Realdoe Feeldoe also comes with a bullet vibrator. The hole to insert this bullet vibrator is at the base of the shaft underneath the giver's insertable portion. The hole is intended to fit any average-sized bullet, so it will fit any other bullet that you prefer. The bullet vibrator itself is a small, plastic bullet that uses watch batteries for power (included). The bullet is about two and 1/4 inches in length. The bullet vibrator is a one-speed bullet, and it is controlled by the push-button control on the end of the bullet. Before inserting the bullet into the Realdoe, it is recommended that you place a small dab of lubricant inside the hole to aid in removal of the bullet when you are done using it.
The single-speed of the vibrations is on the milder side. It can be used on its own as a vibrator, and it can also be easily inserted into the base of the Realdoe. When inserted into the Realdoe, the majority of the vibrations are focused along the ridging on the top-side of the shaft near the giver. The giver receives most of the vibrational strength. The vibrations can be felt very, very slightly towards the tip of the dildo, but they are not very strong in the shaft of the Realdoe. The vibrations seem like they were intended mostly for the pleasure of the giver.
Many users of the Realdoe may find that it is a bit heavy for comfortable, regular use with just the PC muscles. As the Realdoe weighs about a pound, it is heavier than almost all vaginal exercisers - and then you have to consider that the shaft will be hanging out, so gravity will work against you as well. Some women may find that their PC muscles are not strong enough to comfortably enjoy and use the Realdoe for an entire session. However, the neat thing about the Realdoe is that it can be used with a strap-on harness as well. While you might think that it would defeat the purpose of using a strap-less strap-on, it actually works well as then both the wearer and the receiver can receive pleasure from the dildo while not having to worry about trying to keep the Realdoe in. Plus, when using the harness, the Realdoe tends to stay straighter and not droop as much.
During use, the head of the Realdoe provides the most sensation. The veins of the dildo do provide a bit of a softer texture, but the head of the dildo provides the most sensation. The length will be long enough for most people to enjoy the penetration, and the diameter is great for vaginal use as well as experience anal users. The ridging along the top of the shaft near the giver does provide a bit of sensation for the giver, and depending upon the angle during use, it can be more or less pleasurable.
According to the Tantus instructions, the Realdoe is made from medical-grade silicone, and it can easily be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap. It also can be sterilized by boiling it in water for three minutes or soaking it in a 10% bleach/water solution. Sterilization will allow you to use the dildo with multiple partners. In case you want a realistic safe-sex experience as well, the shaft of the Realdoe will be well-protected with an average-sized condom. The toy is extremely easy to clean-up - especially if you choose the boiling method.
Lubricant is recommended for insertion of either end of the Realdoe. Use a water-based lubricant or a high-quality silicone lubricant with this toy. If you are unsure if your silicone lubricant is the correct quality, make sure to do a spot-test on a portion of the dildo before full use of the lubricant. Full use of a low-quality silicone lubricant with this toy could cause the toy to become ruined.
For storage, it is recommended that you keep this toy away from fuzzy materials. It does pick up small fuzzies and lint easily. It can be kept in the original packaging, or it could be kept in a larger storage bag as well.
The packaging for the Realdoe Feeldoe is different than most Tantus packaging. It comes in plastic, blister-pack packaging, and it displays the Realdoe in plain sight as well as the bullet that comes with the Realdoe. Most Tantus packaging includes the clear, see-through box along with the orange design, but this one comes in a different type of packaging. It's large packaging, but it's a suitable size for the toy itself. The packaging includes a cardboard background that shows a woman's face, and the packaging also includes features about the toy.
The backside of the packaging has a lot of great information. Tantus gives you tips for use as well as gives you care and cleaning instructions for your Tantus Realdoe.
The packaging is a bit too large for regular storage of the dildo as it would be larger than the dildo itself. However, it would work for storage if you want to try and keep the hair and lint off of your dildo. The packaging also includes a place to store the bullet, so the two items would be kept together. The packaging, while displaying the product, is still tasteful enough for gift-giving.
