Visually Orgasmic

The Rocket is a uniquely beautiful toy with an average-sized shaft and an above-average-sized head. It's going to take some practice for me to fully enjoy this one, but for those who aren't bothered by a slightly larger size, I highly recommend it!

Use

The Rocket by Tantus is a fairly basic, average-sized, semi-realistic dildo, but it offers a few features that cause it to stand out from the crowd. Although its shaft has no curves, its comparatively large "coronal ridge" provides more than adequate G-spot (and probably P-spot) stimulation; it has a large, round, solid flared base, which makes it safe for anal use as well as perfect for harness play; it has a unique and beautiful color combination; and finally, it's made of body-safe, sterilizable silicone, with a bit of give and flexibility. These features make the Rocket a versatile companion that can be enjoyed by just about anyone.

Material / Texture

As mentioned, the Rocket is made of Tantus' "100% Ultra-Premium Platinum Silicone." Like that of their Silk dildos, this silicone is firm, yet slightly squishy, as well as having a smooth-textured surface. It does attract lint to some extent, and has a bit of drag to the touch when dry, but a quick rinse and a quality water-based lubricant makes the Rocket nice and slick and ready to fly you to the moon. The only non-smooth area on this dildo is the Tantus logo, lightly incised in the top of the base.

TR_05

For those who are not already firm believers in silicone, here's why it's so awesome: First, it's completely non-porous, which means that it's easy to clean and that no bacteria or other ick can hide inside it. Second, it contains no harmful phthalates, like many rubber and jelly toys do. Third, it can be sterilized using a 10% bleach solution or boiling water for ten minutes, or a full wash cycle on the top rack of your dishwasher without soap. And fourth, you should generally stay away from using silicone-based lubricants with silicone toys, as some lubes can break down the material of some toys. If you can't live without your silicone lube, try spot-testing the bottom of the base. (I love glycerin- and paraben-free water-based lubes, myself, as they're safe for my body and for all of my toys.)

Design / Shape / Size

The Rocket's size and shape are interesting, in that overall it's rather average, but the "head" is a bit more than average. The shaft measures 6.25 inches in length, with 5.75 of those inches being insertable. The thickest point, at the flared portion of the "head", is about 4.75 inches around and nearly 1.75 inches across. The rest of the toy is roughly cylindrical, measuring 4.25 inches in circumference and just over 1.375 inches across, with a slight taper inward just above the base. The base itself is a little thicker on the "upper" side of the dildo and is circular, with a diameter of 2.75 inches.

TR_02

I don't believe this would make a good first toy for very many people, due to that large flare near the tip. However, if you're experienced with penetration but not a size queen, you may find that you can handle getting that head-part inserted, and will then enjoy the average-sized shaft for thrusting.

    • Partner play
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

This toy is great at what it's meant to do, which is stimulate the G-spot (and probably the P-spot as well). The flared portion is fairly close to the tip of the toy, and there is enough shaft behind it to enable access to sensitive areas of varying locations--just choose your desired insertion depth.

TR_03

The base isn't quite as thick as that on the Silk toys, but it is large enough to provide stability and control in a harness, as well as a decent handle for solo thrusting. Now, if only the Acute had such a nice base!

    • Body-safe

    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

As noted previously, silicone is extremely easy to care for, being non-porous. The only potential drawbacks are that it's somewhat risky to use a silicone toy with a silicone lube, or to store your silicone toys in such a way that they are touching each other; traditionally, doing these things could damage your toys. However, many silicone formulations are higher in quality than they used to be, so do spot-test if you love your silicone lube. It is perfectly safe to use water- or oil-based lubricants with silicone toys.

As for cleaning, there are many choices! If you aren't sharing your toy with partners or switching between orifices, you can simply use an antibacterial toy cleaner, a cleansing wipe, or plain old soap and water. When you want to spread the love around, simply boil or soak in a 10% bleach solution for ten minutes, or run it through your dishwasher on the top rack, no soap. Voila! It's shiny and new again.

Packaging

If you've ever purchased a silicone dildo from Tantus--well, other than the Feeldoe line--you know what the Rocket's box looks like. Clear plastic, with red and white designs and writing, displays your toy in all its glory.

TR_06

Inside this box, you'll find a clamshell-type insert which is molded to fit your dildo, and holds it safely in the center of the box.

TR_09

The sides of the box are quite informative about the care and benefits of silicone, as you can see in other photos above. The box can be used for storage, though it's a little bulky if you have more than one.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative

Experience

For me, the jury's still out on this one. The main reason I bought the Rocket is because it's so damn beautiful! Silly, right? But my toys have to be at least somewhat visually pleasing, and the prettier the better. I thought that with the slight squishiness of Tantus' silicone, and the smaller-to-average-sized shaft, I'd be able to get past the head-part (literally). However, it is large enough to cause me some discomfort upon insertion, and then is rather more intense than usual once inside me.

Whew...this one's going to take some getting used to.
