A Step Up From The Medium

The Tantus Silk toys are very nice. There is a nice increase in size between the Silk Small, Medium, and Large. I have to say, the Medium has become a toy I use more often than I had expected, and I'm sure the Large will soon be as well. They come in three different colors, and are great for solo, couples, anal, vaginal, strap-on, etc. etc. And they're made out of quality silicone!

Use

This is great for strap-on use, pegging, solo or partner use, vaginal or anal penetration. It is silicone, so it is totally body safe, and the flared base makes it safe for anal use. It's a little bit large to be travel friendly, unless you maybe put it in a pouch and tucked it away in a suitcase. It's fine for use in water, so tub/shower/pool use is okay. If you have roommates, you might want to keep this stored away, it's clearly a sex toy. I'm not certain of how this would work on a p-spot, as I don't have one, but it works for g-spot play. If you are looking for something specifically for that though, you may want something with a bit more of a curve.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of 100% high quality, body safe silicone. It is not at all porous and has no odor of it's own. However, silicone does have a way of holding onto scents, which people who use silicone toys for anal use come to find out. For those of you who are unaware, it's not as bad or offensive as it may sound; it doesn't mean your toy will get gross, or that it wasn't properly cleaned necessarily.

Since it is silicone, do not use anything but waterbased lube with this. The toy is smooth all over, no texture at all. The silicone is typical Tantus silicone. It is high quality, very nice, but a total lint magnet. Though, lint is not really a huge issue; when considering the safety of the material, it's worth it. The texture is smooth, there are not ridges or bumps or anything anywhere on it. While I say it is smooth, it is not velvety, like silicone can sometimes be. It's a bit sticky, it has some drag, so waterbased lube will be useful to have on hand. Because of the stickiness and how easily it picks up dust and hair, a pouch would be good for storage.

This toy has some firmness to it, but the silicone is still flexible and has a bit of give to it. This isn't soft in a floppy way, but a squeezable way, if that makes any sense.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this is not at all discreet, it is exactly what it looks to be. In terms of size, if you are looking to size up from the Silk Medium, this is the way to go. I think the measurement of this are pretty..fair. To me, they are about "average", give or take. It has an insertable length of 6 3/4". The diameter is a fair 1 3/8", circumference of 4" - not for those who want a really girthy toy.

This has a very sort of straight shape to it, no real curve. Here is an image of the Silk Medium (left), Silk Large, Vibrating Champlette, and Tantus Curve.


Compared to the Silk Medium, this has more shape to it. The large has more of a head to it than the medium, there is a bulbous end on it; though it does not have an edge around the head to make it more defined, it just smooths into the rest of the toy. Because of this, the lack of tapered head could prove a bit of a challenge at first if you are newer to anal play (or if you used the medium for anal play and are jumping up to the large, due to the slight difference in shape there).


The overall shape of this is more realistic than the Silk Small and Medium. However, as I said, the head does not really stick out; it is there, but blend into the rest of the toy. That said, this is by now means discreet, it's phallic looking.

If you are looking for something of average size to work with for penetration, this will do nicely. It is not as thick as my Champlette (pictured above), so it is much easier to work with as someone who is newer to anal play. As I said, this is a nice step up from the size of the Medium.

There is a base, making it safe for anal play or use with a harness. The base is totally flat, there is no suction cup feature or anything like that.

Performance

I got this as something to work my way up to something more realistic for anal use. I had been using the Medium, and my Vibrating Champlette was a much thicker toy than that and I couldn't really manage that as a beginner. If I were Golidlocks, this size is juuust right. It's a nice step up from the Silk Medium, and even has a big of a head to it which was a big intimidating at first and I thought I wouldn't really be able to work with that. Still, it is a big of a challenge, but doable. This is nice for someone who is newer to penetration of any kind and looking for something that's not too thick and not too large. You can put a ring over this toy, if you want to add some vibration to it. While the Silk Large is a nice toy, I still really enjoy the Medium and it has become my go-to toy for anal play. However, I'm sure that with time this might even replace that, once I get more and more comfortable with it.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning this is very easy. Since it's silicone, it's dishwasher safe, and can be boiled as well. 10% bleach solution works, or soap and water, or toy cleaner or wipes. The options for cleaning are really up to your personal preferences with this. Easy to sterilize, but if you are sharing it you will want to use condoms just for safety's sake.

As for storage, if you have a drawer or box that you keep toys in, that will do. The box it comes with is not really suitable for storage, and it's the same general package that all Tantus dildos that I've gotten have come in. Not very useful for storing. If you have a Devine playchest or toy box, this will fit in either.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The packaging is not at all discreet, and as I said, it is the same as other Tantus dildos I've gotten. You can see what is in the package, and it has plenty of text all over it that tells you exactly what it is.






It's all plastic, a bit bulky, not really minimal, and certainly not practical for storage.

Follow-up commentary
This is okay. It's nice because it's not super realistic, and it's a reasonable size. However, it could be easier for some to use if the tip weren't so rounded. The design of the Silk Medium is preferable, but the size of this toy is a good size - not too big or too small.
