Definitely Silky Smooth

I am happy with my decision to purchase the Silk. My wife was nervous about trying pegging and the Silk made her more comfortable. She preferred a toy that was not realistic and the smaller size was not intimidating.

Use

The Tantus Silk is a great toy. I have decided to write a review that I would have found very helpful while shopping. I am going to compare the Tantus Silk and the Tantus Acute. Both toys have similar uses, so this review will focus on the Silk and I will contrast it to the Acute.

The Silk is a great toy for pegging. If you are new to pegging, the Silk medium would be a nice one to start with. The size, shape, and texture is very basic. If your partner is nervous about pegging, and they would prefer a non-realistic toy, the Silk will work. That is actually the reason I purchased this toy and I am glad I did.

Material / Texture

Tantus toys are all made of food grade silicone. The material has a plush. firm feel. The quality of Tantus toys is apparent as soon as you open the package. Over the years, I have learned to expect a somewhat low build quality from many toys, but Tantus makes a quality product.

The texture of the Silk is completely smooth with a slight curve. The curve is great for hitting the right spots. The smooth texture, combined with the natural drag of silicone, produces a very luxurious, smooth, feeling. It is a great texture for beginners and I think it would still feel great to those more experienced.
    • Flexible
    • Harness compatible
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

While you could use the Silk for vaginal play, I think many women would find it too small. Unless of course, that's what you prefer. The flared base and small size makes the Silk great for anal play. You don't have to worry about it going in too far and it fits in a harness very easily. We used it in a Sportsheets Latigo harness. I have uploaded a few pics, the purple one is the Silk and the white one is the Acute.

Performance

The Silk performed great. We put it in a Latigo harness. It was easy to get into the factory size ring. Anal insertion was really easy too. The silicone is firm enough to get great control, but still soft enough to enjoy. The Silk held up great to thrusting as well. If it gets a little vigorous you will have to be careful not to pull out. It isn't a very long toy.

Here's some pics so you can see how the Silk compares to the Acute in a harness.

Care and Maintenance

One nice thing about Tantus silicone, is you can put it in the dishwasher if you would like. One word of caution, make sure you ALWAYS use water based lubricant with silicone toys. The packaging that the Tantus toys are packed in could easily be used as a storage container.

Follow-up commentary
I still like the Silk, but we tend to keep it in the drawer more and more. The shape is very plain and leaves you wanting more stimulation.

The size is small and leaves you unsatisfied after a while.

I am happy this was an option. It was non-threatening to my wife and it is the one that got her more comfortable with pegging.
