Ahh, the beauty of silicone. It has no taste or smell. It is phthalate-free, non-porous, and completely body-safe. My Whisper is a very dark, pearlized, plum-purple.. and is completely gorgeous. The bullet is made of silver plastic with a matching purple button. To the touch, Whisper's smooth silicone feels almost tacky, with a high amount of drag. Water-based lubrication is a must, and makes the material glide across the skin like butter. The silicone is also highly flexible and very soft, with a good amount of squeeze which makes this toy feel very comfortable in use and allows the vibrations to travel well. This toy is ideal as a first toy or for the toy connoisseur.
Tantus takes a simple, but effective, design and makes it extraordinary. The elongated tear-drop shape is wonderful, because it allows you to focus the vibrations in the way that suits you best. By placing the broader length of Whisper against your clit it diffuses the vibrations perfectly. On the other hand, focus the tip of it on your clit and the vibrations become very pin-point.
Whisper measures out at only 4" long, and a touch under 1" in diameter, making it great for travel, and small enough to tuck into a purse or small drawer. The size and design also make it easier to hold than a standard bullet. It is rather small for insertion, but could be used to lightly caress up to 3" deep, especially exciting if used this way in foreplay.
Again, Whisper chooses the route of simplicity and efficiency over flash in terms of functions and controls. It is powered by a one-speed bullet that is controlled via a push-button at the base. The button is small, but easy to find and push, but not likely to be accidentally bumped during use.
Amazingly, performance is the area in which Whisper leaves her competitors in the dust. The vibrations are concentrated towards the tip, yet remain strong at the shaft. While they can be felt in at the base, they won't cause your fingers to become numb. Do not be fooled by the N-1 battery, it is long-lasting, and he bullet is very strong. It features high-frequency vibrations that rumble deeply, rather being surface buzzy. And the silicone transfers the vibration awesomely. It does this so well, in fact, that with the cover removed, the bullet itself does not feel any stronger. This is very different from regular sleeves that often muffle the vibrations.
Another great feature of the silicone is that because it is so soft and pliable, it tends to feel like that of a cushy finger in use. This means that with each caress, and with the use of pressure, it still feels gentle.
The Whisper is compatible only with water-based lubes. Avoid silicone-lube as it could possibly bond to the toy's silicone. To clean Whisper, just wash with toy cleaner, or mild soap and warm water. To sterilize, wipe with a 10% bleach solution or remove the bullet and boil the silicone sleeve for 10 minutes and allow to dry. Because this toy is a lint magnet, store in the plastic bag it arrived in, or in a toy pouch. Keep this toy away for those made of other materials, especially jelly or realistics.
Whisper arrived in a clear plastic bag, similar to a sandwich bag. There were no instructions included.
I would just like to stress again how amazing the vibrations are. I find them to be nearly as strong, and almost identical in terms of quality and type, to my Form 2 on its highest setting.
