Back to Basics

I've had toys that look like the Disney light parade, except with more vibration. So my white Acute dildo was a welcome return to something simple, but high quality. It's my vanilla ice cream - while it may be basic, I can enjoy it alone or add toppings as needed.

Use

This moderate 5" insertable, 1.25" diameter Tantus dildo is best suited for internal use, although it can be fun to tease yourself with it externally too, if you lube it up first. The silicone material does drag on the skin a bit. While I wasn't able to find my G-spot with it, that's likely because of my own inexperience than the toy's fault. The "acute" does have a nice curve. Men, this might be a good toy to consider for finding your P-spot if you want a moderate sized dildo. And for all genders, this dildo with a base is safe for anal play!

The medical grade silicone is also excellent for sterilization purposes. The silicone has a firm, slightly yielding texture when used internally, but the dildo isn't really long or hard enough for the majority of women to worry about it bruising their cervix. With that said, it's also really flexible. You can actually bend this dildo in half and it'll spring back to shape right after!

Material / Texture

Like all Tantus silicone toys, the Acute is made from 100% medical grade silicone that is firm, a little gummy, and has a slight give to it. What this means is that the toy feels very realistic, and sticks a little to your dry skin. In motion, this produces a bit of drag, but again, only to dry skin. The acute is also a lint and dust magnet, so I suggest wiping or rinsing it off before use. This particular model has a few ridges that can barely be felt, therefore, the texture is suitable for beginners or those who prefer their toys to be moderate.

I think the base is firm enough that using an O-ring harness shouldn't be a problem. But unfortunately, I can't test this for myself. Maybe you and a lucky partner can?
    • Bumpy
    • Not porous at all
    • Sticky

Design / Shape / Size

The Acute could also have been named "Mr. Average," but there's nothing mediocre about an average sized (length and girth) dildo! It's been designed to please most people, and I think of my white Acute as being akin to vanilla ice cream in that regard.

There is a slight acute curve to the Acute that may make it easier to reach the P, A or G-spot, and the length and girth are well suited, as well for the average user's exploration. The head of the dildo feels the thickest because of a very defined ridge, and along the shaft are very slight bumps that don't add much extra stimulation.

The design is realistic enough that you won't be able to pass it off as anything except a dildo, but it is stylized in the fact that there are no veins and the colors are shiny purples or glittery whites rather than flesh toned. I traveled with my Acute, and while I don't know if it was discreet, no TSA agents gave me a pat-down either.
    • Suitable for everyone

Performance

I personally think this toy performed great as a dildo, and although I have yet to find my G-spot using it, the trip was still worthwhile and makes me eager to arrive at the destination. Ergonomically, the dildo is light, firm, and easy to manipulate and reposition without causing strain to your wrists during solo or partner play. The base is small, but for my hands, the size was a perfect fit. The "TANTUS" embossed along the base also isn't a problem; in fact, you can use it to make sure the right side is pointing up.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The Acute loves water based lubricants, but don't let any silicone lubes get near it or your toy will be damaged! As for dust, lint, and anything else floating in the air, well, they love the Acute. So make sure to rinse the Acute off before using. Cleaning this dildo couldn't be easier because of the material, as you can wash it with a mild soap, spritz on some toy cleaner, boil, bleach, or even pop it onto the top rack in the dishwasher.

I store my Acute in a brown bag, as the plastic clam-shell like packaging, while sturdy, is really bulky and not discreet at all. The brown bag keeps off the dust and lint, which the Acute leeched off of my cloth toy bag.
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The Acute comes packaged in Tantus' clear plastic boxes, which are not discreet, but are tasteful. The box strikes me as a display case. It allows viewers to quite clearly see what the toy is, while stating the company website, uber-awesome silicone nature of the product, and modest tagline, "The World's Best Soft Toys for Adults."

The plastic box itself is thin and probably not worth keeping, but the clam shell mold that encompasses the toy is decent for storage if you don't mind it's bulky and see through. You will need some storage option for the Acute though, as the silicone texture attracts lint and dust like crazy!

Follow-up commentary
Even though I've thought about going for a Tantus' bigger brother, there's something about this dildo that keeps me from exiling it from the nightstand drawer... It must be the perfect texture and size that I've grown to love like a comfy pair of shoes that fit just right.
