A Flexy Little Finger

The day when I am forced to negatively review a Tantus toy is a sad, sad day. In spite of its strange appearance I held high hopes for this toy. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. In this rare instance, I must encourage readers to look elsewhere for a good time, although beginners on a budget that are just looking to dip their toes in the waters of prostate massage could do much worse.

Use

Tantus' Pro Touch Plug is a petite little prostate massager angled for direct pressure and equipped with a narrow opening for inserting a small bullet vibrator. Combined these two features make this tiny toy a pleasurable but approachable choice for newcomers to P-spot stimulation. Due to its unimpressive stature, most users with any amount of experience will be underwhelmed by this, but for beginners this is a great option. Starting out at a width comparable to an adult finger and moving gradually into an inch in diameter, the Pro Touch helps relax and slowly stretch the anus.

In spite of the name and the plug-esque ridge in its body, the Pro Touch Plug really doesn't work as a plug. It will not stay in without assistance, and its base is incredibly flexible making it potentially unsafe for extended "wear" without a guiding hand. Additionally, there is really no neck to speak of with this toy which makes it rather useless as a plug. Instead, it can be used for P- or G-spot stimulation (through the anus or vagina).

Material / Texture

All of Tantus' products are made from 100% medical grade silicone which made them all easy to clean and care for. This also means they have no inherent taste or smell, although odors can collect on the surface of the toy (especially when they are used anally). If your toy picks up some of those unpleasant butt scents, simply leave it out in the open air for 24-48 hours and the smell should dissipate.

Tantus works with a wide variety of silicones: some hard, some soft, some in-between. The Pro Touch is made out of a very soft, pliant silicone and features a very thin and flexible base. Some may consider this a detracting point as it does not provide the most firm stimulation. However, if you are new to anal play you may find this kind of flexibility is quite merciful. With the same glossy, slick finish that can be found in the Silk line of dildos, there is little drag here and the lack of friction makes for an effortless entrance with a dab of water-based lubricant. The only thing that is decidedly negative about this flexibility is that it can sometimes be difficult to insert because it wiggles around too much. Sturdier toys are much easier to angle and insert, but the Pro Touch Plug can sometimes...slip away from you. Once it is in the stimulation can also be so faint at times that it's hard to tell if it's actually hitting the right spot. This depends entirely on anatomy, but my partner requires fairly firm and deep stimulation and this massager unfortunately did not deliver it.

Design / Shape / Size

From very first sight this toy's design has intrigued me, and is actually the reason I finally decided to snap it up when the opportunity arose. Even now after several uses, as I turn it over in my hand, I still can't really understand the rationale behind each of its bulges and tapers. This toy confuses me on so many different levels, the first and foremost being the taper, which defies all logic and graduates backward. Any butt plug is only as good as its neck, and even a prostate massager can benefit from a thoughtfully designed base and neck. Unhappily, this neck does not seem to be well thought out. Let's take it from the top, shall we?

The shaft of the toy starts on a high note: a gently round, finger-sized hook that begins to curve downward into a broader, more filling shaft. Maxing out at .75", the shaft tapers down a little, then juts abruptly out again reaching its broadest point at a little over an inch in diameter. As several other reviewers have pointed out, this design move would make sense for a plug, but the move is left incomplete. Instead of tapering back down to a significantly more narrow neck it just...stays at a fairly consistent inch-wide diameter. This inverted taper makes the toy impossible to keep in without constant pressure, applied either by sitting on it or holding it in place with a hand. Depending on your size and your ability, your experience with this can be anywhere from annoying to physically impossible. It's definitely one of the less user-friendly aspects of the toy.

The base on this toy is about 2" in diameter and is the most flimsy part of the toy, making it difficult to grip. With the small, one-touch vibrator in the little hole, I found it easier to hold on to. My partner also reported that sticking his middle finger in the hole helped him keep a handle on it, but that this was sort of irritating and trying at times.

Performance

There are, obviously, quite a few design flaws here with this toy. However, my partner and I? We're a grateful bunch, for the most part. If a toy has a silver lining then we'll try to find it. So we looked. And looked. Our conclusion? Tantus makes some of the best toys in the whole damn business; everyone is allowed one mistake. Yes, it is made of quality materials, is easy to clean and care for, and yes with proper care it can last a lifetime. But realistically, we'll probably never use it again unless it's for a follow-up review. It just doesn't provide firm enough pressure.

If this thing could have doled out a few intense orgasms, heck, even one mediocre orgasm, my partner and I probably could have been more lenient with the other stuff. Hey, how freaking cumbersome and loud and ugly is the Hitachi? But people still love it, right? We wanted to love this, we really, really did. We love Tantus, but we just didn't love this. My partner would feel around on the base for the engraved Tantus insignia (located above the curve) to check to see if it was pointing the right way because he couldn't feel it! The single touch bullet is not very strong and only has one speed, although when replaced with other stronger bullet vibes the sensations were a bit more intense.

Care and Maintenance

The Pro Touch Plug is very easy to care for being made of non-porous silicone. Scrub it down with warm water and antibacterial soap to sanitize, or for a more thorough cleaning pop it in a pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Store your toy in a a plastic Ziploc bag to prevent it from picking up lint, hair and dust, and to prevent it from negatively interacting with weaker soft materials like jelly and TPR. Silicone can warp or melt these materials, so please keep them separated! Also remember to only use water or oil based lubricant with this toy as silicone lubricant can bond to silicone toys leaving behind a gummy mess that is very difficult to remove.

Follow-up commentary
Oh! I hate to check the "still don't like it" circle on foll-ups :( But it's true, we still really hate this one. It's still in our collection because occasionally I'll actually use it for warming up my butt for bigger things. It's actually kind of handy for that because of how squishy and little it is: all of the things we hated it for when it came to prostate massage. I really can't recommend this to anyone for any purpose except warming up with, which breaks my heart because I love Tantus and think almost everything they do is brilliant. Like I said in my original review though, we all make mistakes, right?

    WOW it's so unusual to see a tantus product get a less than stellar review! Sounds like it wouldn't make even a beginner happy for long.

    Yeah, I would only recommend it to a beginner because it's easy to take care of because it's silicone, very safe for the body, small in size and pretty inexpensive considering the quality. I think it's a good toy to test the waters of prostate play with, but even so, there are better toys that fulfill those criteria.

    When I was reviewing this toy I noticed that Tantus no longer puts it in their plug section. They have it labeled as a vibrator now, which makes a little more sense since it doesn't stay in.

    Yeah, that makes much more sense. I still don't understand why they named it a plug but, hey, it isn't completely awful as a 101 prostate stimulator.
