Small silk - dildo by Tantus - review by VelvetDragon

I'm No Newbie, but the Small Silk Pleases!

Although often touted as a beginner dildo for both vaginal and anal stimulation, I'm an experienced user who often finds herself still reaching for her Small Silk. Smooth and flexible and definitely slender, the Small Silk is excellent for solo play or strap-on sex including pegging.

extremely useful review


My favorite use for the Small Silk is solo play. It is my go-to dildo for masturbation. The slick, smooth texture and slender size never leaves me too sore or raw for extended -- and I do mean extended -- play. In fact, because of its smooth texture, I prefer it over fingers with no worries about fingernails pinching in the wrong place. The slight curve may be effective for some women for g-spot stimulation.

In addition, the Small Silk is great as a small, smooth anal dildo. Due to the texture and size, I agree with many of the other reviews that it's a great, non-intimidating anal toy. I enjoy it for double penetration because the small size doesn't leave me feeling bruised in between. It is not a plug, however, and will not stay in during masturbation. The Small Silk's shape is excellent for thrusting, however.

The flared base makes it excellent for strap-on play for anyone who prefers penetration by a small toy -- for vaginal or anal penetration. This is an ideal pegging toy for guys who like smaller sizes.

Due to the size, this is an excellent travel dildo which will fit in the most tightly packed carry-ons!

Material / Texture

The Small Silk is a silicone dildo, making it an extremely safe toy.

The silicone is actual fairly firm when squeezed, comparable to most Tantus toys, and firmer than many of my other toys. However, due to the thinness of the dildo, it is definitely extremely flexible.

The texture is extremely slick, living up to its name: the Silk. There are no bumps, ridges or seams. I find it excellent for prolonged thrusting without any risk of feeling raw from too much friction. Since my solo play is often over half an hour, this makes the Small Silk ideal.
    • Flexible
    • Harness compatible
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Small Silk is a small, extremely smooth, slightly curved toy. It is the best toy, in my opinion, for those looking for a slender, slick toy with some flexibility; I haven't found one that matches it. However, it is not the toy for those who like their penetration toys girthy or strongly textured.

Here is a comparison of the Small Silk to my fingers. Keep in mind I have very slender fingers (ring size 4.25).
    • Beginner
    • Partner play


This toy is perfect for me. The small size and slight curve is absolutely perfect for finding my rather shallow g-spot. I really enjoy the flexibility and smoothness which means I'm less likely to jab myself somewhere uncomfortable (I can be a little clumsy). The silky surface means extended play has never been something I regret, which is sometimes the case for my larger and more heavily textured toys, when I'm left unable to continue or move on to other sexual activities later that day.

The Small Silk has an excellent flared base, making it harness compatible. However, it does have a very thin shaft which could be a problem with harnesses that do not hold the dildo tight against the ring or without interchangeable rings in harnesses without a strong, snug backing. I have used it with great results in the Flame Harness.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because the Small Silk is silicone, it is extremely safe and easily cleaned and sanitized. It can be washed with water and antibacterial soap, boiled, sanitized with a 10% bleach solution, or run through the dishwasher (preferably without detergent, which can be irritating to sensitive bodies). The smooth surface means there are no places for anything to hide, making it extremely easy to wash.

Since the Small Silk is made of silicone, it should not be used with silicone-based lubes. It is compatible with water-based lubes. In addition, it should not be stored touching other silicone toys, particularly soft silicone toys, which may melt when in contact with other silicone. I wrap my silicone toys in a piece of flannel to keep them clean and snug in the toy box. Since it is a small dildo, it doesn't take up much room!

Silicone does attract lint and the like (I have a long haired cat, and somehow her fur gets everywhere), so I do suggest rinsing it before use if it is not stored in an individual airtight box.

Personal comments

I keep this dildo in the drawer in my computer desk, along with a larger, very heavily textured toy, and the Ripple. It always capable of giving me multiple orgasms while I masturbate, and I never have to stop - even if I'm using it roughly. Sometimes I use it to start a session and later move on to a bigger dildo, but often it is the only penetration toy I use. I can use it to rub against my shallow g-spot for deep, satisfying orgasms. I love it for double penetration along with the Ripple without feeling bruised or uncomfortable. It is my very favorite dildo!
