I assume that you're talking about the Tantus Vamp?
I have it, and personally, I hate it.
(Read on knowing that I am the minority in this opinion)
I was drawn to its paleness and shimmery sparkles; it just looked so mysterious and awesome to me. Here is why I hate it though: it is quite rigid as in it has basically no give or squish, it's not all that flexible, and the pronounced head never failed to catch on my pubic bone. It was very painful to insert even with much lube, it didn't feel particularly good inside of me, and removing it was the worst. Keep in mind though, this was the first dildo I ever bought and I had really no idea about my vagina's preferences. Personally, I think if you've already experienced and enjoyed Tantus's O2 stuff, the Vamp won't impress. I have one O2 Tantus toy, the Mikey, and I love it a million times more than the Vamp, and Mikey is considerably thicker (5 3/4 inches in circumference vs. the Vamp's 5 inches). So the Vamp's size wasn't the problem for me, it was that ridged head; some people like this about the Vamp though, apparently it can create a 'popping' enjoyable to some.
Sorry for the mini-tirade; I was just so frustrated by the Vamp because I really wanted to love it. I recommend reading the Vamp's reviews, but carefully, for I read them too before I bought mine and was convinced that there was no way I would not like it. Now I have a toy that I don't use and it's a nuisance because I have to keep my toys in lock-boxes where I only have so much space.
I hope I was at least a little bit helpful, and good luck.
