Zing - vibrating anal plug by Tantus - review by Augustxsins

Bada ZING, bada boom!

Let the Zing bring a thrill to your love life! The Zing is a petite butt plug made of high-quality silicone and ideal for use with a partner. The unassuming size of the Zing hides a wealth of pleasure. Take time to enjoy the ridges as you slip the Zing in your ass, then let your partner slide into your pussy. Believe me, you'll both be seeing stars!
Ideal for beginners, good for use during DP, high-quality material, great shape
Small, unlikely to be satisfying to advanced anal players
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Zing is a great toy for anal novices. Its slim profile and short length make the Zing great for introducing a newbie to the joys of anal, warming up prior to anal sex, or for use during double penetration with a partner or another toy. If you're looking for a girthy anal toy, look elsewhere. If you're in the market for a non-intimidating, high-quality toy that is comfortable to wear during sex and can provide vibrations, the Zing is for you.

I love to use the Zing with my partner. Use usually starts with fingers and extensive foreplay, to get me aroused, relaxed, and loosened up. The Zing has some fun ridges that provide a nice little thrill during insertion. You can choose to use the Zing with or without the provided bullet. During sex with my partner, I like to use the bullet to add that extra little bit of sensation for both of us. If I'm planning to wear the Zing for several hours I take the bullet out, which makes the neck of the Zing more flexible and giving.

Whether you are using the Zing for long or short term wear, solo or with a partner, you're sure to get a thrill from this toy!

Material / Texture

The Zing is constructed from 100% medical-grade silicone. The bullet provided with the Zing is plastic coated with metallic paint. As with all silicone toys, the Zing has an extremely smooth, supple texture. The silicone of the Zing is soft and pliable, so it gives some under pressure. This makes the Zing less intimidating for those new to anal pleasure.

There is no real taste or smell to the Zing; once it has been washed, any initial scent disappears.

The Zing has four ridges at the broadest area of the plug, stretching over a length of 1.25". The ridges give extra sensation during insertion, which is extremely pleasant.
I washed the Zing a few minutes before taking this picture - note that it's already covered with lint. Silicone can be a hair and lint magnet, so rinse before each use. This is something you just have to take in stride with silicone toys.

Design / Shape / Size

The Zing is 4.25" tall from base to tip. The insertable portion of the Zing is roughly 3". The base tapers in such a way that the narrowest portion (where the anus will grip the toy) is over an inch above the toy's bottom.

The Zing starts with a pointed tip that broadens to the widest point (1" in diameter) within 1.5". The first ridge starts 1" down on the head, with the ridges extending 1/2" before and after the widest point of the Zing. The base of the zing is 2" in diameter. The hole where the bullet can be inserted is approximately 3/4" in diameter.

The bullet area is compatible with nearly any wireless bullet you can find. I've switched the included bullet out with bullets I received with cock rings and other toys, and they have all fit snugly and securely into the Zing. If a bullet takes watch batteries, as the included bullet does, then it is likely to be size-compatible with your Tantus Zing.

Overall, the Zing is really rather small when compared to other butt plugs. Only 1" at its widest, the Zing is absolutely perfect for introducing a new-comer to anal play. The unassuming size makes the Zing easy to store and travel with. Advanced anal players will probably find the Zing lacking: not enough girth or length to give that lovely stretched and full feeling that other plugs can give. The Zing was one of my first butt plugs and was GREAT for introducing me to using a plug with and without a partner. Nowadays I yearn for toys with more girth to them, but the Zing's size delivers exactly what it is supposed to for beginners: a comfortable, thrilling toy that won't hurt or tear an anal novice.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Zing has a hollow inside the base where an included bullet can be inserted. The bullet slot is just under 2" in length, meaning most of the vibrations are focused at the anus, not internally. The included bullet has one setting: it is either on or it is turned off. The vibrations are powerful and nicely rumbly, but beware - the 3 watch batteries that run the Zing's bullet don't last very long. With as expensive as watch batteries are, this can be pretty frustrating.

If you're looking to wear the Zing for a sustained period of time, I'd take out the bullet. This makes the neck of the Zing more flexible and slightly collapsable. As you move, bend, clench and unclench, the silicone Zing will work with your body, making this a comfortable toy for long wear.

Pop the bullet back in when you're ready to have some rumbly fun. Even though the vibrations are focused on the "stem" of the Zing, and therefore right at the anus itself, when combined with PIV sex, the bullet turns your lover's cock into a vibrator, too. Fun!

The Zing is completely waterproof when the bullet is removed. Again, the Zing is easy to use sans bullet and still tons of fun. The silicone will in no way be damaged by water contact. Get crazy and have some naughty fun in the water!

Care and Maintenance

I love silicone. LOVE IT. Silicone is so easy to care for and sterilize! As with any silicone toy, the Zing is NOT compatible with silicone lubricant. Use the Zing with a water-based lubricant. Since anal play tends to lend itself to a long duration, try going for a thick, gel-like water based lubricant. Thick, gel lubricants dry much more slowly and extend the amount of time between reapplication. I recommend Maximus, but any water-based lubricant will do.

There are several options when it comes to cleaning the Zing.
For the bullet: Always remove the bullet before cleaning the silicone portion of the Zing. Clean the bullet using antibacterial toy cleaner or soap, but be careful not to submerge the bullet, which may cause water damage.

For the silicone toy itself: Between anal uses, simply spritz with an antibacterial toy cleaner, rinse, and store. Antibacterial soap works, too. If you're going to be sharing the Zing with another person or switching between vaginal and anal use, you'll want to do a bit more extensive cleaning to prevent germ transfer. You can soak the Zing in a 10% bleach solution or boil it in plain water for 10 minutes. Both of these should kill any pathogens and prevent transferring bacteria from one individual or orifice to another.

When storing, I recommend keeping your Zing in a bag or box of some sort. As mentioned earlier, silicone is a lint and hair magnet, so you'll need to keep the Zing stored in a clean, enclosed place, like a drawer or toy chest. If you remove the 3 watch batteries from the bullet before storing you should be able to lengthen the bullet's battery life.

Personal comments

I found the Zing at a local toy store several years ago. I was experienced with playing anally solo, but was looking for a plug that would lend itself to use with a partner. At the time, my favorite anal toy was a dildo with a suction cup on the end, which I could stick to a surface and ride. The dildo had lot of ridges that felt excellent when paired with the in-and-out motion of thrusting. As soon as I saw the ridges on the Zing, I perked up and thought "I like ridges! I should try this!" The ridges of the Zing made it very attractive to me as a customer.

The Zing was the first anal toy I ever used with a partner during DP. I'd never tried DP before, and felt almost over-whelmed by the sensation of fullness that came from having a penis in my vagina and a plug in my ass. I'm glad I started relatively small: anything larger and I probably would have balked or tensed up too much to enjoy myself. The vibrations really helped me relax and enjoy the experience.

That was the beginning of my love affair with DP. While I've since graduated to larger toys, I still occasionally break out the Zing for old-times' sake. Even though I'm an intermediate anal user now, the Zing still sends a thrill down my spine. Pair it with DP and I feel stuffed in the most lovely fashion. Pairing any butt plug with vaginal sex sends me over the edge. The plug pushes at my vaginal wall and aims my lover's cock up, so that he hits my G-spot with every stroke. The Zing's small stature doesn't diminish this effect at all; the Zing works just as well as any of my larger plugs. Better yet, the Zing stays firmly in place during DP, with or without the bullet, even when I start to clench down during orgasm. If you're a beginner curious about DP with a toy and a partner, give the Zing a chance! You may discover a whole new world of pleasure.
