Cisco - dildo by Tantus - review by discreet dude

Add resource

Hilarious looking, AMAZING feeling!

Cisco is a very low maintenance large toy with fantastic features. Its ribbed, tapered, and flexible design allow for fast or slow play while still allowing good control of the toy. Because of its high quality silicone construction, Cisco is hard to damage and easy to clean. If you want a large toy that is easy to handle (especially compared to other toys of its size) I highly recommend it. As far as overall value goes, I'll give Cisco an A.
Very versatile for intermediate to advanced users.
Texture/design/size is fantastic for anal.
Base can become very slippery.
Only comes in black.
Might be uncomfortable for anything but anal.

extremely useful review


Cisco is amazingly fun in the bedroom, the shower, or on anything else with a towel. I usually place it on an elevated surface in the bathroom (like the toilet seat or the rim of the bathtub) and enjoy slowly working it in and out towards the base. Because of the rings on Cisco, I can usually then firmly grab the toy, assume a lying position, and really thrust with it until I lose myself in pleasure. Afterwards I then go back to a rough riding position until I finally lose all strength.

Cisco's head is rounded while the whole toy is slightly tapered, making it easy to pop him in and out (both externally and internally) for rough riding. Because Cisco is ribbed you can squeeze or relax your muscles for different sensations. Try really squeezing together while working the whole toy in and out of yourself for an incredible climax. It is definitely a rider's dream come true.

Because Cisco is silicone, he is also subject to temperature play. He can be left to warm up in a bowl of hot water, or left in a bowl of ice water for a cold sensation. But if you really want a chill, leave Cisco in the deep freeze for while, it'll leave you with a very unique sensation.

Cisco has a simple flared base for its stability and your protection. I don't ever see the base popping inside of someone unless they were really trying to force it in (which you shouldn't ever do with any toy).

I always recommend using a high quality water-based lube (like Probe) with Cisco or any larger toy, using thinner lubes might be less enjoyable for the inexperienced.

As long as the base and surface you place it on is dry, Cisco will stay in the spot you place him. If it starts to slide due to lube or water getting under the base, a simple towel or rag can be used to hold it in place.

Cisco is primarily designed to be used as an intermediate/advanced anal toy. I think people new to anal should probably start with some of Tantus's smaller and more tapered products. It would also be difficult for oral play, and I think it also might be a bit too large for vaginal (but I have no experience in that matter). I also think that due to the weight/size/floppiness Cisco could be hard to use with a harness. But the thought of it flinging around in one is pretty hilarious.

Material / Texture

Cisco is 100% pure platinum-cured silicone, which means he is some pretty magical stuff in my opinion (I meant "it" instead of "he", lol). Silicone toys are body safe and nonporous, meaning that it's very hard for stuff to get adsorbed into the material and then absorbed into you.

Most silicone toys come with a barely noticeable "fresh from the toy factory" scent. With a gentle wash (which I recommend you do for any new toy) Cisco possesses no odor.

On a firmness scale I'd give Cisco a 7-8, which means that while he is very firm, he does have a little give (or squishy-ness) to him. Cisco is also quite flexible; you can easily bend it from head to base. When you let go, it snaps back to attention (I'm easily amused sometimes).
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Cisco's initial geometric design gave me a laugh at first (it's a cylinder with larger cylinders wrapped around it, which is just absurdly minimalistic in my opinion). But after getting to use it I saw how well it was designed. Its head is curved, allowing for comfortable insertion and removal. The base enables it to sit on most dry surfaces and be squatted on easily, while the "ribs" allow it to be grabbed and manipulated directly with your hands, even when it's covered in ultra slick lube.

Cisco's design is actually kind of tapered. The rings at the top are a little bit thinner and smaller than the rings at the bottom; I think this why he is so easy and fun to ride on.

Cisco's length is around eleven and three-quarter inches, with an insertable length of around ten and three-quarter inches. His circumference is around seven inches with a diameter of about two and an eighth of an inch. It weighs one and a half pounds, which actually makes him feel light for his size.

Cisco has a smooth matte texture that holds lube well, with the base having a polished glossy texture that makes it harder to slide when it's standing up.

Cisco also easily rolls away if it gets knocked on its side (I had to walk to the other side of the bathroom to fetch it once, lol).

I think Cisco's best feature is the rings that wrap around it. With a lot of other large toys it is difficult (especially in the heat of the moment) to grab and manipulate the toy with your hands (due to the slickness of lube and water). But Cisco is one of the few large toys I can really manipulate from almost any angle with little to no slipping or dropping. The rings also add immense "vibration" to the process, while at the same time being slightly curved so you don't feel as sore or "poked" afterwards. I feel Cisco is a good bargain for what you get, I've spent more on larger toys and felt less satisfied.

If I wanted to add anything to the toy, I think more color selections and a strong suction cup would add more versatility.

Care and Maintenance

Silicone is very easy to clean/maintain. It can be washed off with warm water and soap, boiled for a couple minutes in a pot, put in the top rack of the dishwasher, or rinsed off with a 10% bleach solution.

Silicone is a slight dust magnet, so I advise washing it off before use or storing it in a lint/dust free zone. Most silicone toys I own are stored in a simple gym bag under the bed, but you can also buy a cheap towel or a nice yard of fabric from Wal-Mart and wrap them up for long-term storage.

Please note that silicone toys should not be used with silicone-based lube (or condoms with silicone based lube, such as Trojan's Ecstasy line). There is a chance that the lube could interact with the toy and cause damage to it. I always recommend water based lubes, as they are easy to use and clean up.

Silicone's only other major weakness I've encountered is if the material tears or is pierced in any way. That means you should try to keep sharp objects away from them, and also try to avoid biting or chewing the toy (in case you're into oral or have a dog that thinks your toy is his as well). There are some home remedies on the net if this happens, but none of them can really fix the toy like it originally was.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • Low maintenance


Eden Fantasys packaging is a discreet cardboard box with a safe amount of paper wrapping to protect the products. Cisco comes in a simple plastic bag with a cardboard top stapled to it. I like the packaging because it's simple to tear off and easy to dispose of. The base of Cisco has a simple UPC code and Tantus logo that peels off easily. I don't think Cisco should be kept in its original plastic bag, as there are many better alternatives. No instructions or pamphlets are included (it's not like it's a mystery what you're going do with it).

    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I really love playing with this toy. It's already in my gym bag of frequently used toys. Cisco really surprised me with its performance, so much so that I thought it deserved an extra review praising it. The Tantus line has also impressed me; all the products I've received from them are very high quality for a reasonable price.
    • Excellent quality


Cisco is a big toy and requires respect for that. Always warm yourself up first with a good lube and your fingers and/or other small toys first before working Cisco in. Start out slow and steady until you feel comfortable, and then go for broke!

As of this review, I've been anal toying for a few years now, so I have some experience and kind of know what I'm getting myself into (and what I'm getting into myself). I always warm up with my fingers (going from one to four) first, and then start up with a small dildo or toy (I've recommended a few at the bottom of the page, but you probably already have a starter if you're taking Cisco on). And for the love of yourself and whatever you believe in: USE LOTS OF GOOD LUBE AND GOOD JUDGEMENT (yes I'm yelling that at you, especially you newcomers).

Cisco is around my tenth or so anal toy. He has a humorous appearance that always makes me laugh for some reason, and I like that in a toy. When I first used him though, I knew he was going to become a favorite. So far I can take Cisco all the way down to the very last ridge at which point I start to feel very "full" and slightly uncomfortable. Pushing further down to the base is probably possible, but I toy for the fun of it and not the pride (and so should whoever reads this). I'm not a doctor and don't pretend to know how the sigmoid colon and other areas actually work, but Cisco has a smooth curved head it is definitely good at pressing open what a lot of folks refer to as the second sphincter. In case you've never heard of this, it's sort of like a second wall inside your bottom. If you've pressed it open once during toying you'll find out where it is with a bit of a surprised look on your face. Some people like it, some people don't. Personally I enjoy the sensation greatly.

In case you're new to deep anal toying I'll warn you now, be prepared for accidental defecation. It happens to everyone and takes a lot of practice, understanding your diet, understanding your body, and patience before you can control it better. And even then accidents happen. Because Cisco is pure silicone though, he is perfect for use in the bathroom and can easily be washed off and re-lubed. Just be prepared is all I'm saying.

Just because Cisco is initially too long for you to take "all the way" doesn't mean you should rule him out. Cisco has a lot of potential as a good training toy. Just start with what you can take, enjoy it, and work on taking more of it with time. Remember, with basic maintenance Cisco will last as long or longer than you do!
    • Good for depth training
Follow-up commentary
So it has been awhile now, and I still find myself using Cisco quite a bit. I can get all the way down to the very base of the toy but find it uncomfortable (I think it's more of a depth issue than girth). I find myself having the most pleasure riding it on an elevated surface (like a chair) and thrusting the next to last ring in and out.

My Cisco has taken quite a beating (or given me a beating, however you see it) and is still in perfect shape/condition. This is why I always recommend pure silicone toys; they are very difficult to damage.

I think Cisco's only flaw I've managed to find is that the base can become super slick with lube and make the toy too slippery to ride on. I've found having a clean cloth or towel to wipe the base and surface off easily fixes this. And I've also found out you can just sit the base on a towel on a slick surface (like bathroom tile) and manage to ride just fine.

So overall, I'm still having a blast with Cisco! And I still recommend him as an awesome toy!
