Do YOU Fly Delta?

Another great product from Tantus! The Elements Delta is totally smooth and made of 100% body-safe, hypo-allergenic silicone. It can be sterilized and shared, works as a dildo or vibrator, and can be used vaginally or anally. It is lacking in size, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, as beginners to penetration could find this toy to be just right.

Use

What I love about Tantus is the way they make their vibrators. There is a hole in the base of the toy to stick a bullet inside. Make sure to add a dab of lube to the bullet before inserting it to make it easier to remove later on. The toy comes with a moderate strength, one-touch vibe, and three watch batteries. The vibrations transfer well and can be felt throughout the toy, but are not strong enough to make much of an impact during use. You can always use a stronger bullet instead of the one it comes with; just make sure they are the same size.

The Delta has a wider, thicker base than my other Tantus toys, making it easier to grip, control, and thrust with. It also keeps my hand from cramping up during use (I have hand problems, possibly early development of carpal tunnel). I do not own a harness, but you could use this with one. Because of the design, it might make it difficult and/or awkward, but it can be done.

You could probably use this anally, but because of the rabbit-style petal, it could, again, be awkward or difficult. It has a diameter of 3/4" with a tapered shaft, so it would be a good choice for someone new to anal, I would imagine.

Material / Texture

The Delta is made of Tantus' unique blend of nontoxic, food-grade silicone. It has no texture whatsoever; it's a completely smooth ride. The silicone is soft with plenty of give, and has a bit of a flop to it. This does not make it difficult to insert, however.

When I took it out of the package, I did notice a strange chemical scent to it. I have never encountered this with any of my other Tantus toys. I gave it a quick wash and the smell became less noticeable, but it remained even after use and another bath. I have not boiled it yet, but I'm hoping that maybe it will help with the odor. Despite this, the toy has no taste at all.

The toy is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, latex and phthalates free, and can be completely sterilized.

Design / Shape / Size

The Delta is a small, non-realistic vibrator. At a length of 5.25" -- only 3" of which are insertable -- and with a circumference of 2.75", this toy leaves much to be desired. Because of its petite size, it is not overwhelming in any way, and I think it would be good for those new to sex toys and/or penetration.

It has a nice curve for G-spotting, but I found myself wishing for a little more length, as well as girth. Still, I believe it would make a good addition to anyone's collection. Except size queens. They would be highly disappointed.

I would not call this toy discreet, but it is non-realistic, so it doesn't scream "SEX TOY!" like most of Tantus' other products. It would probably be okay for travel, as it does not take up much room. Although, if you are going to use this as a vibrator while traveling, I would suggest taking a quieter bullet with you rather than the one it comes with. Perhaps JimmyJane's Iconic Bullet? It is the same size, takes the same batteries, and has three speeds.

Performance

This is my first rabbit vibrator, and I have to say I was not too impressed. Unlike other rabbits, the clitoral petal does not vibrate. I actually didn't like the petal. It is hard to explain, but it just didn't feel good at all. The way it rubbed my clitoris hurt a bit. I ended up turning the toy slightly and holding the petal up with my finger or bullet to keep it from rubbing. Although I'm sure it's enjoyable for others, it was just bothersome for me.

It has a nice curve, and hit my G-spot well if I inserted just a little bit passed the end of the shaft. As I said before, I wish it was just a little bit longer. I still enjoy it for what it is, and would recommend it as I do all of Tantus' products.

The wide base makes it harness compatible. I do not own a harness and cannot vouch for this feature. It does not have a suction cup base, but the hole it does have for the bullet can be used to insert Tantus' removable suction cup. As with the bullet, I would add some lube before inserting to make it easier to remove.

Despite my gripe with the size and clitoral petal, the toy performed great and I love it for what it is. Hopefully I'll have somewhat better luck with it in the future.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for this toy is a breeze! You can wash it in so many different ways -- one of the reasons Tantus is amazing. Boilable, bleachable, and dishwasher safe (just remember to take the bullet out if you used one). You can give it a bath in warm water with antibacterial soap, or spray it with toy cleaner. It is non-porous, but should still be sterilized if you are sharing or switching between orifices. Don't forget to wash before and after use as the silicone attracts lint, dust, hair, etc like crazy.

Storage is just as simple. It barely takes up any room in your toy box. You can stick it in a plastic bag, a nice drawstring pouch like they sell here on Eden, or keep it in the clamshell it comes in. If you prefer to store it in the original box like I do (I really, really need to buy pouches for my toys), be forewarned that the box is made of cheap plastic and breaks apart very easily after a short period of time. This happens from constantly bending the plastic back and forth. It isn't made to last, but it works well enough for temporary storage. The box also takes up much more room than a pouch or plastic bag would, and is clear all the way around making the toy visible from virtually every angle. Not very discreet, is it?

As with all silicone toys, water-based lube is the only kind you should be using. Oil- and silicone-based lubricant reacts poorly with silicone toys and should be avoided like the plague. If you are desperate and silicone-based is all you have, you can do a patch test on the underside of the base of the toy and go from there. Still, I would advise against using anything but water-based.

    I love the shape of this one - it's somewhat different!
    Would be nice if it came in other colors. But even so, I'm a size queen so this one might frustrate me....hehehe.

    Great review

    I'm not a size queen by any stretch of the imagination, but I have to say this one frustrates me a bit sometimes. Very nice warm-up toy, not as nice as a finisher.
