Anthem of the Angels.

Between Revolve and Flow, I have made two perfect creations for vaginal and anal play. Those who like texture will prefer Revolve. Those who are new to harder materials or prefer smooth texture will probably like Flow better. I like to have a mixture of textures, so Revolve made a fabulous addition to my collection. I absolutely love the rich purple color. Tantus has again created another quality item. Revolve is a definite classy beauty.
Heats up to body very fast, Holds temperature very well, Interchangeable pieces, Multiple texture
Too rigid/textured for some, Lack of curve, No storage pouch for future storage

extremely useful review


Revolve is another double ended dildo in the Alumina line from Tantus. Unlike her simple and somewhat plain sister Flow, Revolve is made out of multiple bubbles in the shaft. Those who prefer texture and hard surfaces will absolutely love this dildo. Even though the whole dildo is textured, the entire toy has a slick and shiny finish to it. The bubbled texture and hard material may not be the best for beginners, but those more experienced will most likely enjoy Revolve. Both ends are blunt and well rounded, and either end makes a great handle. Because of the rigid material, I want to caution when thrusting as it can possibly hit and bruise the cervix. Also, the pronounced and bulbous head might catch on the pubic bone of some. The lack of curve may put some people off, but the single bubbled end is so round and full that it rubs my G-spot in a very lovely way. It might be full and round enough for some P-spot stimulation, and it also provides a nice popping sensation when removed. If tilted up just the slightest amount, this dildo can help me produce some intense squirting G-spot orgasms. Either end can be used vaginally or anally. Be carfeul as there isn't a designated flared base. However, the rubber O ring located in the middle acts as a stopping point. The slick surface can be difficult to hold onto with lubed up fingers, so always keep a firm grip. On top of all of this, Revolve can be used for some intense temperature play.

Material / Texture

Revolve is made out of aluminum- 100% aeronautic grade aluminum to be precise. Revolve is anodized, which gives it that amazing purple color. It also increases the dildo's corrosion and water resistance. If you look closely, you will see that even the inside of the screw hole is anodized. It has the same gorgeous purple color as the outside does. Aluminum is a very rigid and non-porous material. It weighs less than stainless steel, but it still has some weight to it. This can be a good and bad thing. If you have bad wrists, the heaviness may cause some pain during long play sessions. For those that love heavy toys, this one is definitely a keeper! The entire shaft on each end is completely seam free. Aluminum is compatible with oil, water, and silicone based lubes. I find that aluminum heats up a little bit faster than stainless steel, but they both hold temperatures very well. I start out with a cold Revolve, and by the end of my session Revolve is hot. Revolve had an initial packaging smell, but it washed off easily during the first cleaning. Revolve did not and does not have any weird tastes. In the middle, you will see a black O ring. This ring has a small seam, but I cannot feel it during use. Yes, this ring traps some fluids. Without it, the toy would trap a ton more fluids. It also gives the toy a smooth and finished look and feel.
Other than the three bubbles on one end and the bulbous head on the other, the toy is smooth. It has a slick and shiny finish. This is also a good and bad thing. The slick shaft requires very little lube, but it also makes it difficult to hold onto with lubed up fingers. If you want to play with temperatures, let the toy soak in the desired temperature of water for 3-5 minutes.

Design / Shape / Size

Just like Flow, Revolve is double ended. Revolve is made out of two separate pieces, which come together with a screw and a black rubber O ring. This design makes it very easy to create your perfect dildo. Unscrew the pieces, and then simply screw the favored pieces together. Be sure to always keep the O ring safe. Without this ring, there will be a huge gap between the two pieces. Not only will this trap a ton of fluids, but it will make for a painful insertion and thrusting experience. No longer will the dildo be smooth and seam free.
The end that I call the small end is composed of three bubbles that grow in size. I use this mainly for anal play, but it feels amazing for vaginal play as well. The way they gradually grow reminds me of anal beads. There is a space between each bubble. This area is perfect for taking a brief pause in order to breathe and get used to the previous bubble before moving on to the next and larger one.
The larger end has a large bulbous head, and then it flows into the smooth shaft. This design reminds me of the Dai-Do #2. The head creates that awesome popping sensation when removed, but it can also create some painful catching on the pubic bone. Neither end is curved for proper G-spot or P-spot stimulation. Some might be able to get some stimulation to their sweet spot with the right angle, but those with finicky G/P-spots will probably not be able to get any stimulation to their desired spot.
Total length-8 1/4"
Insertable length-Can insert up to 8"
Diameter of large end-1 1/8"
Diameter of three bubbles (small to large)-3/4", 7/8", 1 1/4"

    • Whimsical / artistic


As I have said many times before, between the Revolve and Flow I have managed to create two ideal dildos.
The smaller ends of each have come together to make a double ended anal toy. The small, smooth end makes a great warm up probe. The end with three gradually growing bubbles reminds me of the Rhapsodia. This ends acts like a rigid threesome of anal beads.
The bigger ends of each came together to make an amazing vaginal dildo. The bulbous end really hits my G-spot in such a magnificent way, and it also doubles as a perfect handle for when I prefer the smoother and more filling end. I usually prefer more texture in a dildo, but for some reason I am never left unsatisfied with either dildo. I suggest the Flow to beginners who want to try a rigid toy for the first time, but more experienced users will get a thrill out of Revolve. I am hoping to add Motion to the family for when I am craving some intense texture. Take a look at my creations!

    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety

Care and Maintenance

Revolve can be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap or a toy cleaner. You can also place it in the top rack of the dishwasher without any soap. Dry with a soft cloth, and then store it in the original packaging. A storage pouch will also work. Revolve is compatible with any and all lubricants. When cleaning, be sure to pay special attention to the O ring. Lubes and bodily fluids can get caught. If you can't get all of the trapped fluids out, I suggest taking the dildo apart and clean each piece carefully. Be sure to clean before going from anal to vaginal play. When using or sharing with a partner put a condom over the toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The front of the packaging has an outline of the toy in silver. This makes it less discreet, but it does help you know which dildo is in the box if you have more than one of the Alumina dildos like I do. Once the lid is taken off, you will see a thin layer of removeable gray foam. After lifting this foam out, Revolve will be there nestled in a cutout made of the same gray foam. This cutout is perfect to store your toy in. However, I do not see this box lasting forever, so a future purchase of a storage pouch may be needed. Next to the Revolve will be the pamphlet that contains information on the different toys in the Alumina line and information about the material they are made out of. The sides of the box has some information about the material and toy as well.

    • Good for storage


I just want to show the difference between the small and large ends of Flow and Revolve. Both are perfect for me in their own ways, and I do not prefer one over the other. I hope this helped, and I hope you enjoy whichever one you decide to get!
