G-spot strap-on dildo by

the acute's a cutie!

A very high quality dildo that's excellent for g-spot stimulation, although the curve proved to be a bit of a pain on occasion. A lint magnet with charm.
Material quality, easy of cleaning, color

extremely useful review
I bought this awhile back to use with a former partner. Initially it was for her to use on me, so the bulk of my impressions of the dildo are from being penetrated with it, not from wielding it myself.

It is clearly a very well-made item. (I mean, what else would you expect from Tantus? They're like the Lecreuset of dildos.) There are no seams and the whole piece is smooth save for the Tantus stamp on the base. I did do a flame test on the edge of the base and it yielded only a little pale ash, no melting and no smell, so I was confident in the quality of the silicone. I also liked that it managed to retain a phallic shape without looking too "penis-y", but I guess I don't like a lot of aesthetic realism in my toys. I got the midnight purple and thought it was just lovely, it even has a hint of shimmer when it catches the light.

Unfortunately, the dildo did have its drawbacks, but I think it's largely due to incompatibility with my anatomy (as well as that of my partner). Although it did do a fantastic job of targeting the g-spot, I felt like the curve of the dildo combined with the shape of the head made for a less than enjoyable experience at certain angles- if you have a shorter vagina and/or a low cervix that doesn't take kindly to prodding, this might not be the toy for you. The curve is such that I occasionally feel like the dildo almost gets "snagged" on the back of my pubic bone - and this is anything but comfortable. It only happens in certain positions, but my partner did note the same thing on the one or two occasions that I used it to penetrate her. Of course, this wouldn't be an issue with an actual human penis, but silicone is a more rigid material with less "give" to it- even though the Tantus dildos aren't excessively firm, they're not squishy either. If you squeeze the dildo there's definitely some give to it, but it holds its form. I have not used this dildo anally so I can't speak for it in that respect.

I personally found the size of the dildo to be just right- it's not big, that's for sure, but it does the job, and it would be fantastic for somebody who prefers small-medium toys. The girth wasn't uncomfortable for me and that's something I have found with other toys. My partner, however, found it too small for her liking, so be sure to check the dimensions Eden provided and see if they're right for you.

Also worth noting: The base is NOT a suction cup - it looks as if it might be in the picture, but it's not. Not a big deal for me as the base was still wide enough for the dildo to be used very comfortably in a strap on.
One of the biggest annoyances with this dildo is that it is a lint magnet. Seriously. Every single piece of fluff in a two-meter radius will stick to it. The best way I've found to get around this is to store it in a small plastic or nylon lined bag after washing and drying - I use a clean makeup bag - so that no fluff gets on it. Cleaning is a breeze, the silicone is easy to sterilize. I use an antibacterial soap and plenty of water after each use, and boil it every five or so uses. To dry I'd recommend standing it on its base on a windowsill or desk, somewhere where it's not likely to get lint/dust/hair on it.

On their website Tantus tells you that you can actually sterilize their products by baking them in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, but I haven't been brave enough to try that yet!

Be sure to use plenty of *water-based* (please, no silicone!) lubricant with this dildo! I really doubt anyone's natural lubrication would be enough, for such a smooth surface it has a surprising amount of drag.

I'm still giving this four stars because I really do believe it's a quality dildo. I think for someone with slightly different anatomy or sensation preferences it would quickly become a favorite.
To avoid unpleasant "ouch" moments, I would advise not aiming "up" when using the dildo vaginally- that is, not tilting the head further towards the anterior vaginal wall than it is already curved. But hey, everyone's different- see what works for you.
