Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is a great choice for those who enjoy the sensation of something entering and exiting their anus. The increasing size of the bumps allows for the user to gradually build up to something larger. The length and flexibility is such that you may be able to curve around to the sigmoid colon, depending on the user.

It’s fun for use solo or with a partner and harness.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of silicone, which is second only to stainless steel in my book. The soft, flexible silicone is great for the aggressive thrusting you can do with this toy. The flexibility allows exploration of the anal cavity so that the user can find their favorite spot to target.

I find a thick, water-based lube is best for this material, because it will cushion and not damage the silicone material.

For some reason, the material of this toy seems to absorb odor more than other silicone Tantus toys I own. I'm not sure if that's because it goes deeper for me or what the cause is. Apologies for touching on the odor topic, but for an anal toy, it's worthy of mention, considering where it will be used.

Design / Shape / Size

I like that the bumps on this probe are spaced a bit further apart than other probes that feature this increasing bump size design. There's a little space to pause in between if I'm using this toy after a shorter warm up period. The final bump is a perfect distance from the base for my body, (5' 11") so that when I rest at the base, I can feel the final bump delivering a modest stretch to my inner sphincter.

Flexibility is crucial for enabling more aggressive use if I am riding it hard solo, or being pegged with a harness. I have been able to wiggle and adjust the probe to barely tickle the beginning of my sigmoid colon, inviting me to consider deeper exploration in the future.

The size of this probe is great when it comes to circumference, but sometimes the length is a bit too much for me. I don't get pegged often, but sometimes it feels like it goes a bit too deep for me, probably because it hits the top of my rectum. Depending on the user, this might not be an issue.

My intended use for this toy was to help me train for more advanced anal toys. I purchased the Severin Large plug prior to this and found that my eyes were bigger than my anus. I determined that I needed a probe that I could ride or thrust in order to relax my sphincters in order to train up.

My first use was pleasurable, but quickly showed me that length is not what I enjoy when it comes to anal toys. Since then I've found that the toy rests on its base easily and allows me to ride its ridges with my two hands free for my cock and balls. After a brief ride, I can move onto larger toys with more ease. I must credit this toy for enabling me to gradually move up to the Severin Large. It's also a valuable option for when I don't have much time to build up to a larger toy, but crave some anal play.

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance of this toy are easy, in large part due to the silicone construction. A non-silicone lube is a must. Washing the toy is no problem, but I have been slightly turned off by the odor absorption I mentioned earlier. If you store this toy in fabric, you'll find that it collects fuzz easily. It’s best stored upright in a box, if you can.
    • Easy to clean

Personal comments

If you're seeking a training toy because you crave the ability to enjoy larger, more filling toys, then this toy is a great option to teach your sphincters to relax and dream bigger.
Follow-up commentary
The Ripple Large just isn't "large" enough for me anymore. If I use this probe, it's not long before I am craving more stretch and more fullness. The shape of this toy is an excellent model for Tantus to create some larger size progressions of this style. I see that they created a Ripple XL by accident: but it's not much larger. For someone who knows they don't want to continue going larger, this is still an excellent probe choice.
