Niagara Will Make You Gush Like the Falls

It's a long, high-quality hard and soft silicone dildo ideal for positions like doggy style that benefit from a little extra length. The Niagara doesn't used as much soft, squishy silicone as the Raquel does, making it firmer, which might appeal to some people.

useful review
From the moment I pulled the Niagara, made by Tantus, out of its package, I was comparing it to the Raquel, a similar dildo in the same material, size, and price range made by Vixen Creations that I already owned. (I reviewed the Raquel| Raquel Dildo by Vixen Creations a few months ago, and you may want to read that review too.) Anybody thinking about buying the Niagara|02 Niagara Dildo by Tantus is also thinking about buying the Raquel| Raquel Raquel Dildo by Vixen Creations—or should be—so I’m going to start by comparing them.

The Niagara is a little thinner (1 1/2 inches instead of 1 5/8 inches) and a little longer in terms of insertable length (8 inches instead of 7 1/2). I like the extra length on the Niagara, especially for doggy style.

The Niagara has ridges, while the Raquel is smooth with a more pronounced bulb at the head. The ridges do add a little something, but the slight curve and more bulbous head of the Raquel also do a little something extra for the G spot.

The Niagara is firmer; the Raquel is a little floppier. The extra firmness means it’s easier to get it back in after a slip out, but it’s not quite as unusual and fun as the floppier Raquel. Also, the Raquel’s flexibility means that it bounces around, especially when you’re using it manually, and the vibrations induced by mere thrusting provide an extra throbbing stimulation.

The Niagara accommodates a bullet, but the Raquel does not. I find that insertable battery-operated mini vibes don’t do much for me, although some people deeply appreciate the addition of some extra vibes, however mild. I like it, but don’t need it.

The Niagara has a thinner base than the Raquel, meaning it sits closer to your body and has more insertable length—note that both are listed as having the same overall length, but the Niagara does look a little longer in person. Cock Wrangle mentioned in a comment to my Raquel review that Tantus’s smaller bases tend to pose problems, and I agree. The Niagara is just not as secure in a 2” O-ring as the Raquel. A smaller O-ring would solve that problem, however.

When I ordered the Niagara, it was only available in pink. This pink is a sort of hot pink, and not as pleasing to me as the softer, slightly pearlescent pink of the Raquel. I’m not too picky about the color of my dicks, but I’d rather take the Raquel out on a date. The pink Raquel is definitely more aesthetically pleasing than the pink Niagara. The Niagara looks a little cheaper, especially since the base on mine is not a perfect circle.

In terms of material, both O2 and VixSkin are essentially the same material, but the Niagara has a substantially thicker (hot pink) firm silicone core surrounded by a substantially less thick layer of the (white) soft, squishy material. If you want the feel of something more closer to the softness of cyberskin, you should go with the Raquel.
Experience
Even though I do love the Niagara I will give it one less star than the Raquel because it doesn't make the most out of its O2 soft silicone and because it's not as pretty. The contrast of its hot pink firm silicone core and it's white squishy O2 exterior looks cheap next to the Raquel's wider base and less substantial pearlescent white core covered with a thicker layer of soft pink, slightly pearlescent VixSkin. For me, the point of having a toy like this instead of a hard silicone one is precisely the softness. The Niagara is a great fuck, and it's much softer than a regular silicone dick|Buck Silicone dildo by Vixen Creations, but it doesn't feel as different from a hard silicone as the Raquel. Some people may want a firmer, thicker core with less soft silicone on it, however, and they'd do well to get the Niagara.
It is a bit easier to navigate in a harness because it's harder, and easier to get home, especially after a mid-fuck slip-out.

I like using toys made of this material manually because their softness and flexibility means that when they're being thrusted in and out, they transmit throbbing vibrations. I also like how they give when you squeeze and bite them. Beware: bite marks will stay permanently on both of these toys.

    I forgot to change the color of the Niagara in my review to pink, but  looking at the pink photo, I shoudl add that mine does not look like the one pictured. The base of mine is a brighter, hot pink, and it contrasts with the rest of the dildo because it's covered in a sleeve of white softer silicone (O2) that's thicker and therefore lighter nearer the tip, culminating in the all-white, all-O2 tip.
  • Yeah, sometimes the photos can be misleading...

    Great comparison of the two toys.  I do have a question though.  Would the stiffness in this toy be enough to lend itself well to anal penetration?  I have held off on buying the Raquel just yet, because it is so floppy.  It is important for me to buy silicone dildo's that I can get a lot of use out of, as in I like to be able to use them on myself and on my husband during pegging without the use of condoms (thus them having to be made out of a sterilizable material).

    Nice review!  I really haven't noticed too big of a problem with the product pictures.  It just seems like every once in a while you get something that looks totally different than what you expected.  Sorry that this one was so far off!

    I love, love, love this dildo!  The ridges and bendability allow for internal and clitoral stimulation at the same time.  I have it in the purple color, which is really quite attractive, and I like the vibrating option.  I've got the Raquel on the way, though, so I'm looking forward to checking out the differences!  Good review!
  • The pictures are normally very accurate, I agree, Oggins. This is an exception, and probably only applies to the pink.

    And yes, Dame Demi,  I think that both the blue and purple colors are bound to be more attractive.
  • Thanks for that comparison! I've been curious about O2, but haven't bothered to get one yet (I'm sticking with my Vixskin line for now). Nice review.
