No Wonder It's a Secret!

In my opinion, this toy just isn't worth the money. You're paying big money for what is essentially a nice silicone sleeve on a crappy vibrator!

Use

This pretty little peacock blue silicone-sleeved vibrating toy is used mainly for clitoral stimulation, but can also be used for outer perineal stimulation or for all-over body massages. While it can be used for G-Spot stimulation, I feel its dimensions do not allow for adequate G-Spot play or stimulation for bigger gals. Here are a few summaries on the usage of the Secret Touch, as I will go into further detail shortly.

Clitoral Stimulation
The Tantus Secret Touch is mainly designed for use as a clitoral stimulator, and for that job I'd say it does fairly well with its smooth, semi-firm velvet texture and overall unique design. The "Flathead" design, as I like to call it, is perfectly sized to rest on the average clitoris. However it only has one speed that some could either find too strong or not strong enough.

Outer Perineal Stimulation
Due to the Secret Touch's unique, "Flathead" design, this toy makes for an excellent outer perineal stimulator. It warms fairly quickly thanks to the pure silicone sleeve, and the head is the perfect size to just rest on the anus or "Gooch" to help either relax in preparation for anal play or just for the pure pleasure of outside vibrations.

G-Spot Stimulation
When it comes to G-Spot Stimulation, I think that this toys small design is its utter downfall. For a woman of petite or small stature, this toy could possibly be used for great G-Spot stimulation. However women with curves could find G-Spot stimulation with this toy difficult. I know I did!

Full Body Massage
The Secret Touch, with its soft silicone sleeve, makes for an awesome all over body massager! I enjoy using it on my neck when I'm having spasms!

This toy is great for anyone who wants a near-silent, medium strength vibe that is 100% safe and pretty to look at! It can be used during foreplay but can be difficult to maneuver during intercourse.

Warning
Please note that this toy is not designed for internal anal usage! This toy should not be inserted too deeply into the vagina, as with it being small in design, having electronic elements, and no easy method of retrieval can be dangerous!

Overall Ease of Use for Voluptuous Ladies
I'm sad to say, but this toy scores a 5/10

Material / Texture

The Tantus Secret Touch is essentially a small bullet vibrator with a removable pure silicone sleeve, so I will elaborate on the toy in two separate areas, the silicone sleeve and the vibrator.

Vibrator
The base of this toys design is a small, silver colored bullet vibrator that is smooth to the touch with what I am assuming is a brand emblem with the name "Levett" carved into it. It has a purple o-ring and a purple button on the end. There is hardly any drag to the vibrator itself unless you include the brand emblem. There is only a slight odor of electronic equipment.

Silicone Sleeve
The most notable aspect of this toy is the uniquely shaped, pearlescent peacock blue pure silicone sleeve. Overall the sleeve is non-porous, smooth, very flexible (when not on the vibrator) and as firm as a hard cock when placed on the included vibrator. There is a small "Tantus" brand emblem at the base of the sleeve that adds a slight bump to the overall texture. I'm sad to say that the sleeve tends to feel quite tacky/sticky and thus has a lot of drag that I found frustrating when either trying to remove or place the sleeve onto the vibrator and found quite uncomfortable when using it on myself unless I'm either really wet or use a fingertip amount of lube during play. There is a slight odor to the sleeve that I can only describe as plastic.

Note
To make removing or putting the sleeve back onto the bullet easier, you can either:
- Place a small amount of lube into the sleeve with a finger (just a tiny dab should do the trick)
Or
- Place a little bit of cornstarch into the sleeve (a fine dusting is best, don't over do it)
    • Light odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Sticky

Design / Shape / Size

Since this toy is comprised of two parts, I will elaborate on each part of toy like I have in previous areas of discussion.

Dimensions
All measurements are Approx.

Vibrator
Length: 3 1/4"
Circumference: 2"
Girth: 5/8"

Silicone Sleeve
Length: 3 7/8"
Circumference: 3"
Girth: 1"
"Flathead" Diameter: 1"

Combined
Length: 4 1/4"
Circumference: 3"
Girth: 1"

As size goes, this toy is fairly small, almost like a large, thick finger which makes it great for beginner and veteran toy enthusiasts alike. The small size makes this toy easy to hold for long periods of time and easy as pie to hide if there isn't a lot of room for a larger toy. Here's an idea of its size using my partner's finger for reference. These photos were taken with a camera phone so please excuse the poor quality!
Finger Reference

The overall design of the Tantus Touch isn't very special, since it is essentially just a pure silicone sleeve that is placed on a standard vibrating bullet. However the "Flathead" design of the sleeve does make for a nice surface area to place on either the clitoris or perineal area, but the lack of length makes this toy difficult to use for G-Spot play.

The toy is fairly futuristic looking in shape, but I couldn't help but notice the similarity shared between the toy and a can of Febreeze AirEffects!

Functions / Performance / Controls

For a small vibrator, this toy is alright. The fact that it only has one setting, which I will call "Medium" in strength (think of a very strong cell phone), really takes away from my opinion of the toy. Although the vibrations can be felt throughout the toy, the silicone sleeve holds the vibrations well and directs them to the "Flathead" area.

The Tantus Secret Touch uses one "N" size battery and comes with one. If you ever need replacements, be sure to check for them here.
The vibrations tend to wane every now and then even when a brand new battery is used. Because of this waning in strength, even with a full battery it's difficult to judge how long you can go between battery changes.

There is a push button control, with two settings (off and on) that is AMAZINGLY difficult to depress! It takes two fingers sometimes to actually get the button to stay in either the on or off position!

Although the toy is designed to be water resistant...from these issues alone, I'm scared to even use the toy in the tub or shower in fear something else may go wrong!

The toy is so quiet I can use it without hiding under a blanket and with the door open!

Note
You can use the bullet without the sleeve, but I found no difference in performance...the bullet still sucked!
    • Difficult controls
    • Discreet sound
    • Frustrating in general

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning
Caring for this product is pretty easy. You can use these cleaning methods for each part of the toy:

Silicone Sleeve
- Boiling water for 5 minutes
- Top rack of Dishwasher (Do not use Dish Detergent)
- Toy Cleaner
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Warm water and mild soap

Note: It is best to let the sleeve air dry, as it can become tacky and collect hair, dust, etc. on it easily.

Vibrator

- Rubbing Alcohol
- Spray on/Rub off Toy cleaner

Note: Since the vibrator contains electronic parts, make sure the end is screwed on tightly so no fluids can leak into it! You can air dry or use a soft lint-free cloth to dry this item.

Lube Compatibility
Since this toy is comprised of two main parts, I'll do two lube compatibilities. Since the vibrator itself is plastic with a rubber o-ring if using the vibrator alone you can use any lube with it BUT oil based.
However if using the vibrator with the included silicone sleeve ONLY water based lubes should be used.

Storage
You can store these two items together, but DO NOT store the silicone sleeve with any other items besides the vibrator it came with to prevent interactions between other materials! Store in an airtight container and keep away from direct sunlight/high heat sources and dust.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Tantus Secret Touch's current packaging is only temporary, as they have recently announced its permanent packaging on the forums here. My Secret Touch came in a clear plastic bag with a white cardboard label that had little information besides the name and brand of the toy and the EF logo. The packaging can not be used for storage.

The packaging can be recycled at least!
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

When I received this assignment, I was really excited. It was my first pure silicone toy, as well as my first Tantus toy. However upon receiving and trying the Touch for the first time, I was amazed at how poorly it performed! With all the issues I've had, I will say that I will probably not recommend this toy to anyone. For the high price, you're just paying for the nice silicone sleeve on a crappy vibrator! At least I have a better bullet that the sleeve is compatible with!

Experience

My experience with this toy has been nothing but heartache. I have nothing bad to say about the company, but this toy just really needs some improvement!
I also own a High Intensity Bullet and if I were to choose between the Tantus Secret Touch and the High Intensity Bullet, I'd choose the latter in a heartbeat. For the price you may not get the nice silicone sleeve, but you get three power settings, easier controls, and it's waterproof!
Follow-up commentary
I am still extremely disappointed with this toy. Maybe if they released the sleeve with a stronger vibrating bullet with multispeed settings it would suit my tastes better.
