Alright guys, if you are going to take on Goliath, you are going to need some stones. Or at least some lube, some deep breaths, and a little patience. And ladies, if yours is a Davia an d Goliath story, you may just need some time and a lot of lube. However you play, the fact of the matter is the Goliath dildo by Tantus is a big toy well-suited for size kings and queens alike, but it may be a little intimidating for the average user and downright overwhelming for the novice.

The Goliath silicone dildo is a girthy play thing with a diameter that is approximately 1.75 inches. We used this, not surprisingly, for pegging and something that big makes you take notice. It was not uncomfortable; in fact the feeling of fullness is rather sublime. However, this is not the kind of toy you can just slam into a person. It takes communication, a bit of time, some patience, and a lot of (water-based!) lube. The insertable length of the Goliath is between 6.5 and 6.75 inches. This is a little shorter than I think it should be. I think another 1.5 to 2 inches would increase the thrust depth as well as lending to its visual appeal (or shock).

The shaft of the Goliath is sculpted in such a way as to simulate a VERY veiny penis. There are more veins than one would normally see on a penis and it give it a little of a monster effect. I guess this adds to the ‘giant’ aspect of the toy. In reality it was the veins more than the size that had me worried. I was afraid that they would be so uncomfortable that they would ruin the experience. Quite to the contrary, actually. The veins provide very nice texture that is noticeable but not, with the proper amount of lube, painful or off-putting in the least. The massive head on the dildo with its pronounced coronal ridge also had me a little worried during insertion. Turns out it was really nothing. I guess I was so distracted by the sheer size of the toy that I didn’t even really notice anything unusual about the head going in.

Our Goliath is purple. The premium silicone has a bit of a metallic-like flake that gives this toy an illusion of depth that is really quite beautiful. The dildo shimmers in the light and looks almost like it has a translucent layer on top of the purple. This is very noticeable in the base. Because the Goliath is made from premium silicone, you can count on it lasting for a really long time provided it is given the proper care. It can also be sterilized between partners or between anal and vaginal use by boiling it, steaming it in the dishwasher, or even soaking it in bleach. Just be careful which lubes you use though. Do not use a silicone lube. Also, when cleaning it, be careful of the soap you choose. I did a preliminary cleaning of a toy with a body wash that had trace amounts of silicone in it. The finish on the toy was destroyed in the process.

The Goliath has a hole in the base into which an included bullet vibe fits. The vibe is powered by a AAA battery (included) and provides a decent buzz that is transmitted well by the silicone material. It is concentrated in the base which is actually quite nice because it keeps the vibrations where the most nerve endings are. The vibe is also fairly quiet, especially when surrounded by all that silicone. It does, however have only one setting. It also sticks out a bit from the base. With the bullet in place the Goliath cannot be used on a hard flat surface, such as a chair. The other thing is if you insert it all the way into the hole you may never get it out, even with that little bit sticking out. You can still change the battery, but unless you are willing to put forth a great effort it may never come out simply because it is hard to grab a hold of. Tantus did think to provide bumps on the inside of the hole that keep a vacuum from forming which would definitely cause the bullet to be stuck forever. Another really nice touch is the button on the bullet matches the color of the dildo. Bravo Tantus for paying attention to the details!
Experience
The Goliath has wide base making it suitable for strapon play. You just need to have a harness with the right size o-ring and you are all set. The Goliath can also be used in a harness with an integrated o-ring, like our beloved SpareParts harnesses or the RodeoH. Before you push the dildo through the o-ring, put a plastic shopping bag over the dildo. Insert the dildo through the o-ring and then pull the bag off through the o-ring and off the dildo. Viola, you big girthy dildo is now in place.

The bullet vibe on ours sticks out about a quarter of an inch. During use, when the bullet started in the off position, it would get activated every time Mrs. Peg thrusted in because her body would push the button. During withdrawal it would shut off because there was some separation between her body and the button. This made for some very interesting and pleasurable play. If the button is fully activated we did not notice that it would be shut of inadvertently during play.

We really enjoyed playing with the Goliath. There is a bit of a psychological “Whoa!” that you may feel when you first see it and that can add to your play. If, however, you take your time, use plenty of lube, and communicate with your partner, it really isn’t too big and can provide amazing sensations of utter fullness and textured joy. Have fun!
Follow-up commentary
We had some fun with this and our Lelo Boa Ties this past weekend. It is still big...it is still very very satisfying....and I still like it very much.
