Silk large - sex toy by Tantus - review by Cuntext

  • Christmas shipping schedule

A real crowd-pleaser

The Silk is a really reliable dildo that's easy to use and care for. Its size, shape, and material make it suitable for a huge number of people and uses (first-timers to seasoned pros; butt-fucking to blow-jobs), it's good quality and not insanely expensive.

Use

I call this cock a crowd-pleaser for a couple reasons. The lesser reason is that it won a strip spelling bee for one of my partners, when revealed strapped on as her last layer of clothes. The real reason I say it's a crowd-pleaser is that it's an insanely popular dildo, especially for first-timers: first time buying a dildo, first time strapping on and fucking someone, first time taking a strap on, first time taking it in the ass...the firsts go on. I am among a lot of people who keep liking it once past the firsts. You can use it for just about anything you'd want to use a dildo for (my boy's even packed pretty comfortably with it!), with the exception of realistic appearance and vibration.

Material / Texture

The Silk is a very firm, very smooth dildo. As usual for a Tantus toy, it's medical grade silicone, so it's super safe and easy to clean, and being able to sterilize between uses is a must for folks who like to fuck bareback. It's way less of a dust/hair magnet than softer/plushier silicone cocks, so you rarely have to interrupt your sex to go rinse it off (or wipe it down with a damp washcloth or wipe intended for the purpose), which is important when it comes down to those urgent moments--it can suck when your partner's waiting for you to slide into them, but you have to ask them to hang on a minute so you don't fill 'em up with lint along with your cock. I also hear the smooth texture makes the Silk great for anal, so maybe my follow-up review can speak to that point. It doesn't retain odors or tastes, so it's plenty pleasant to put in your mouth. You won't be smelling whatever you did three weeks ago when it's down your throat today. Because it's so firm, it also thrusts really well. There's no risk of it bending or collapsing at the base as you pound away, as softer cocks sometimes do.

The drawbacks to the Silk's hardness are that it's not very realistic feeling and it changes temperature slowly. Plushier silicone (Tantus's O2, Vixskin) warms up to body temperature more quickly, which makes it a tiny bit more comfortable and quite a bit more realistic.

Design / Shape / Size

The dimensions of this cock are actually fairly close to my ideal ones, just a bit bigger than average. There's definitely a reason it's one of the most popular dildos out there, especially for first-time buyers. It's not so long that I have trouble taking it from behind or with my legs closed and it's not so thick or ridged/veined/otherwise textured that it's hard to accommodate girth-wise. It's also a really easy cock to strap on. The base is solid and thick, and fits the O-ring that comes standard on most straps, so you won't have to switch it out for a larger or smaller one.

The shape isn't realistic, which I think makes it less intimidating to people buying their first dildos, and also probably makes it more discreet than a monster cock with veins and balls. The "head," so to speak (since this is not at all a realistically shaped dildo), is thicker than the rest of the shaft, which I like because it rubs my G-spot more easily--I often come with my partner's cock partway out of me, hitting my G-spot while I or my partner rubs my clit. What I don't like about this thicker "head" is that it's harder to get down my throat if I'm giving a blow-job, particularly since it's such rigid material. There's less flexibility for me to push my limits (i.e. gag reflex), but if you don't plan to suck it, no worries.

I'm also partial to the sort-of pearly blue color, but it doesn't seem to be available anymore, unfortunately.

Performance

The best thing about the Silk is that it's so fucking reliable. I can pretty much always take it; it'll pretty much always be enough to fill me up and get me off. Between myself and my two partners, I have five dildos available to be fucked with; but with any of the other four, there's a reason to have a glimmer of doubt, whether because they're too small to really be satisfying or they're rather large in some dimension, and I can't be positive my pussy can take it right then. It straps on easily, as I said, and the base is big and solid enough to grip it in your hand to bang someone, though it's probably not the most ergonomic design for that.

Care and Maintenance

Smooth, medical-grade silicone, so care is a no-brainer. Wash with mild, unscented soap and water to clean, sterilize by boiling for three minutes, running it through the dishwasher (top rack, no soap), or wiping it down with a bleach solution. Water-based lube only, since silicone lubes can degrade silicone toys, which isn't pretty. This cock usually lives in a little drawer in a bedside table; it attracts some dust/lint, but not enough to require a complex storage solution.

Personal comments

Although I have other dildos available in my life--more realistic, longer, thicker, softer, prettier--I really enjoy coming back to this one. Maybe that's partly because it was the first strap-on I got fucked with (surprise, surprise). I've got a soft spot for it, but I don't think so. It's just always a good ride. I stand by my original comment: it's a crowd-pleaser.
Follow-up commentary
I still like it, and stand by my original review, but we don't use it anymore. Boyfriend got Vixskin; haven't looked back since.
