Do Vampires Sparkle?

The Vamp is damned near the perfect realistic style dildo; silicone, body safe, retains temperatures well, has subtle texture due to the exaggerated head and veined shaft but not too much texture, is sized to please nearly any level of user and it sparkles! Whether or not you're into vampires, the Vamp is sure to please. And if you are? Happy fantasizing! The Vamp really does seem like a bloodless, beautiful, undead cock.
Silicone, subtle shimmer due to the sparkly shaft, retains heat and cold well, hygienic, beautiful.
Picks up lint and dust easily, as does most silicone.

extremely useful review


Ahhh. The Vamp. Tantus' much talked about pale, sparkly dildo designed to ignite a fever in Twilight lovers everywhere. And it has!

Tantus says the Vamp is "For those of us who fantasize about being spellbound and tantalized by the forbidden comes The Vamp. We promise this vamp won't be the only thing coming for you in the night."

In reality, it's all that and more. You definitely don't need a thing for vampires to enjoy it as it is, at its core, a beautiful, slightly sparkly, slick, silicone dildo that features a perfect length, girth and base for just about any use you can imagine. Vaginally, anally, with a harness... the Vamp can do it all.

And if you do have vampire fantasies? Ever so much better as it's pale, bloodless appearance is quite reminiscent of a vampire before it's fed... and about to feed on you, perhaps?

Material / Texture

The Vamp is typical Tantus silicone, which is really not typical at all. Tantus silicone is impeccable, with no scent or taste and a slick feeling to it rather than the matte you often see. It's slightly shiny, slightly sparkly, with an amazing heft and weight to it.

The design of this one is realistic and the feel goes a long way in aiding the realism. It's firm but slightly squishy, bendable but with a solid core that makes penetration a breeze.

There is no real texture to it beyond that found in the realistic head with its deep ridge and the subtle veining, but unless you're a texture queen, you won't miss it. The sleekness of the Vamp is stimulating enough without added bells and whistles.

Design / Shape / Size

I'm not normally a huge fan of realistic dildos. I'll admit that right from the start. They're just not very discreet and they can be a bit creepy; like a disembodied penis sitting on my desk, freaking me out. But the Vamp seems to be an exception. I think it must be the sparkles. They're subtle, not at all like the Vixen Leo, but they add so much to the design of the dildo. They're pretty!

The exaggerated head with it's noticeable ridge also goes a long way toward making this design really nice. It's enough to get that yummy, thick head feeling upon insertion which immediately tapers down to a manageable girth. The ridge itself is especially stimulating to the g-spot.

Because this has a flared base, it's safe for anal and harness use too, which really makes it a versatile dildo - even for those who don't like sparkles or vampires!

The Vamp is 6.75 inches long and a full 6.25 inches of that is insertable. Excellent for thrusting since it's not so long you'll bruise your cervix, but is plenty long to satisfy most and to hit most g-spots. The 1.5 inch diameter narrows to around 1.25 inches along the shaft so after the initial stretch of the bulbous head the Vamp should be manageable for just about anyone.


Other than its sparkles, and the idea that it's supposed to be a vampire cock, the Vamp is really just an exceptional silicone dildo. I love that it's of excellent quality at an affordable price - and that its sparkly beauty is just a bonus, not the core of the toy.

The Vamp works best for me as a thrusting toy. It bends just enough that I can flex it to rub the girthy head against my g-spot yet is firm enough that I can get the pressure while doing so that I need. It's filling and impressive without being huge, which seems to be rare in the realistic dildo market.

The Vamp also makes an excellent anal dildo - though I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for the novice as its head is its thickest part. I also don't recommend trying to use it as a plug, there is no taper to the shaft to help retain it. For thrusting, however, it excels and mimics anal sex exceptionally well.

I don't have a harness but it is o-ring compatible. Just be sure to check the sizes on your harness and be sure they're compatible.

Care and Maintenance

Like all Tantus products, other than the alumina line, this toy is silicone. As such, it is non porous, phthalate free and can be safely shared between people and orifices. If you're sharing, sterilize it with a ten percent bleach solution, by boiling or by running it through the dishwasher on the top shelf with no soap.

If you're not sharing, just wash under warm water with soap or use a gentle toy cleaner.

Only use water based lube with this! I tested a few silicone lubes with different ingredients on the base and all of them reacted badly. (clouding, gumminess, etc) You don't want to ruin your sparkly penis, do you?

Store with other silicone or by itself, preferably in some sort of bag that will inhibit dust and lint, as silicone picks it up very, very easily.

Personal comments

Writing this as a descriptive review was hard! I had so much I wanted to say that wasn't objective. Mostly that this thing is sooo pretty. Heh. The sparkles in the shaft are very, very subtle and create more of a shimmer than a gaudy glittery look. It's absolutely gorgeous!
Follow-up commentary
I have come to the conclusion that realistic silicone dildos just aren't for me. With repeated use I simply cannot tolerate the ridged head as it catches on my pubic bone/inside of my vagina.

The vamp is an excellent quality dildo; gorgeous to look at, pleasing to clench around, great for g-spotting. It just hurts me. It didn't seem to at first, in fact I thought it was stimulating at first. Perhaps I've grown more sensitive with my recent surgery and less toy use.


Oh, but for someone to make a realistic dick without the noticeable and painful ridged head!
