Thick Headed Pleasures

Overall John Doe far surpassed my expectations, with a softer and more flexible silicone than expected and a visual appeal that doesn’t show well in photos, his large head and realistic feel makes for a highly satisfying experience.

extremely useful review
Packaging:

The John Doe arrives in Tantus’ usual style of packaging, a clear plastic box which is free of any sexual imagery. On the back and sides of the packaging you will find plenty of information about the silicone used in Tantus toys.

He arrived in what I know as the slightly smaller size of Tantus box, fitting nicely in it with no excess packaging. As the clear plastic box is so transparent, it gives you the advantage of being able to see the toy from every angle while it still sits in the packaging. The bullet vibrator which fits into John Doe’s base arrives sitting separately in the box, hygienically sealed in plastic.







First Impression:

Available in three colour choices, Beige, Cocoa and Black, I opted for the Cocoa which in person has a nice warm flesh tone to it.

Seeing the John Doe in person for the first time it has more of a bulbous or pronounced head than I had expected when judging by product page photos. Looking at it sideways the girth looks to be even throughout but looking at it front on you can see a generous increase in girth at the head of the dildo.

Feeling and squeezing the John Doe, it has a much different feel than I had anticipated. While I am quite used to all types of Tantus silicone toys like their usual firm feeling silicone, their dual density O2 and recently their Pack ‘N’ Play toys, the John Does silicone has a different feel to all these. I had expected to feel their usual firm silicone as this is not mentioned as being anything other than that but to my surprise it seems to have a softer and more fleshy feel to it material.

The surface of the John Doe feels luxuriously soft and velvet like and the head of the toy when squeezed feels more realistic than most Tantus toys. Between the cocoa coloring and the softer fleshy feel of its silicone, this definitely reminded me of Tantus’ new Pack ‘N’ Play range.





Measurements:

Total length: 7 Inches

Insertable Length: 6 ½ Inches

Circumference: 5 ½ Inches

Base Diameter: 2 ¾ Inches





In use/ Experience:

When inserting the John Doe, its thick semi-realistic head is filling and gives a teasing sensation of stretch before the shaft then slims down slightly. Lube works well with the smooth head and the veining that runs along the shaft has a pleasant level of texture but still gives the John Doe a realistic feel internally.

The silicone does feel less firm than other regular Tantus silicone toys and is almost comparable to the new Tantus Pack ‘N’ Play range in how soft it feels both in the hand and internally. In the hand it has a nice amount of squeeze to it and is quite flexible with the head feeling more solid but still squeezable. When inserted the middle of the shaft feels like it easily adheres to the curves of your body while the thicker head stretches and pleases.

While the head is quite generously girthy, its ridge is less pronounced than most realistic dildos, which considering the 5 ½ Inch circumference of the head; is most likely a good thing. This ridge can still be felt during use but the overall size of the head is what really stimulates rather than the realistic shape of the head.

When just used as a dildo, the hole in the base of the toy can come in handy for slipping your finger into, helping you to keep a grip on it. The flared base makes it suitable for strap-on play too. This flared base does feel quite slim and flexible so for anal use I would recommend it more for pegging than anything else and would take care to ensure that it is well in place when secured in an o-ring if for use anally.

Functions:

Flared base

Removable bullet

Waterproof

O-ring harness compatible

Compatible with the Tantus suction cup accessory





Bullet:

Single Speed

Single push button

2 ¼ Inches long

Powered by 3 watch batteries


When the bullet is placed in the John Doe’s base and switched on, its vibrations can be clearly felt at the base of the shaft and up to the mid length of the toy but they unfortunately don’t transfer too well to the head of the dildo at all. The bullet has a single speed which when used alone clitorally feels reasonably strong. It’s not the quietest of bullets and doesn’t feel like the sturdiest of bullets either but the hole hole in the base of the dildo can easily accommodate other bullets so if you have a favourite you want to swap it out for this works.

Experience
I’ve always found the bullets included with Tantus toys to be a let down so I personally like to swap for a different/multi-speed bullet instead. Though I do thoroughly enjoy the John Doe when just used as a dildo too.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with John Doe, photos fail to do its texture and realism justice and it has both a feel and finish unlike other ‘regular silicone’ Tantus toys I own. The amount of ‘give’ to the silicone is enough to have it feel more realistic than most and the soft velvety finish gives it a more luxurious feel than anticipated. Quite a decent level of realism (to the feel) for a modest price tag.

Care:

Made of high-quality Silicone, the Tantus John Doe is both Latex and Phthalates free, silicone is completely non-porous meaning that it can be fully disinfected by boiling it for 3 minutes or by throwing it into the top rack of your dishwasher or it can be simply washed after use with warm soapy water or specialized toy cleaner, it is generally believed that silicone based lubricants should not be used with silicone toys. I would recommend using a generous amount of water-based lubricant with the John Doe.

When not in use, I keep John Doe in a Zip-sealed plastic bag, this keeps him dust and lint free as silicone toys are well known for attracting hairs and dust.
