Compact Is Right

Compact is the smallest dildo in the Compact/Sport/Luxury lineup from Tantus. It is 100% silicone so it can be sterilized which allows for safe anal play or sharing if desired. It's small diameter makes it great for a dildo novice or as a warm up toy. The curve would be more effective for g-spot or prostate stimulation if the Compact were a little stiffer.

extremely useful review
Tantus’ Compact Dildo is a small harness-compatible dildo with a “head” that is slightly larger than the shaft and small ridges that run down the shaft. It is made of high quality silicone, which means that it is easy to maintain and can even be sterilized if multiple people want to use it. Silicone is usually softer than plastic and stiffer than jelly, so it is often comfortable without being “pokey.”

The color of the Compact that I received is black, which is good for me because it is neutral, so my wife doesn’t find it distasteful. Not that it would matter that much anyway, since she won’t be using it very often, but I have always been a fan of sex toys in dark colors because I see no reason for my sex toys to stand out.

Well, you say, enough about color, how does it perform? My experience is that the Compact performs adequately. With a diameter of only 1” at the largest point and just 5” of insertable length, the Compact is a great toy for an anal beginner or for someone new to dildos in general. As a warm up to larger sex toys, it can be good as well. I guess I have become a size queen, because the Compact was too small for my tastes. It just didn’t seem to hit the prostate very well nor did it provide the “full” feeling that I like sometimes. My wife used it on me in a dildo harness, and it was comfortable, but not especially stimulating. It fits well in an o-ring harness as long as you have an o-ring that is small enough to keep it in place, which we do.

Overall, I would give the Compact 3 stars out of 5. It is a decent sex toy made of good materials and has its place as a starter toy, but it just does not hold the attention and provide the orgasmic possibilities like some of the others out there.
Follow-up commentary
Although the Tantus Compact isn't one of my favorites, I will probably never get rid of it because it is just a useful piece. With a size that is just a little bigger than a finger, it can bridge that gap between a finger and a larger dildo that I might be trying to work up to. The smooth silicone means that it doesn't need a whole lot of lube and I know it will last. I have yet to purchase either of the Compact's bigger brothers (Sport and Luxury), but they remain on my wish list for consideration later. There was a time when I expected a little bit more from the Compact, but now I realize that it fills an important niche in my sex toy collection.

    will it work with a 1 1/2 in o-ring? Where do you purchase smaller ones?

    I think we used a 1 1/4 in o-ring.

    You're welcome, HannahPanda. It doesn't do as much for me as it sounds like it does for you, but it is well made.
