Charmer - dildo by Tantus - review by Arlinnae

Love at first touch

Absolutely worth its price - the feeling it gives is mind-blowing, though it's not for those who prefer big toys.
The size, the shape (gosh the shape!) the colour - everything
Only the packaging

extremely useful review


For girls this dildo is intended to use vaginally. It does not vibrate so it is absolutely silent, no need to worry about anyone hearing what you are doing. It can be used solo. It has no grip designed for single play, but the toy is long enough to work comfortably like that too. It is harness compatible, once inserted into the ring it droops just slightly, but still has enough firmness to remain easily insertable.

It can be used with a partner and without harness too, enabling simultaneous oral/clitoral and vaginal stimulation too.

Probably unfit for public wear.

The material is soft enough that it would not bruise your cervix or wall. I found the toy to be too long to insert all the way, but I have a relatively small vagina. Even with one less ridge to stimulate the G-spot I absolutely loved the effect.

It can be warmed up in hot water, but without that it is not that far from body temperature either.

The base is flared enough to use it anally, and it is supposed to serve for prostate stimulation too. As I have none, I can’t really say how well that works.

Material / Texture

I ordered a rather large selection of toys at once, and this dildo was just one of the many things in the box when I sat down to unpack it. I had more shiny, more intriguing things in there. So first I just set it aside, thinking, meh, just a dildo, no harness, doesn’t even vibrate. I only opened the box to take a closer look because I found the pearly, shiny color interesting. I ordered a pink one, and the picture does not do justice to the color. (Yeah, I like pink and shiny. So sue me.) The picture is quite good, but it cannot really give back the pearly color and shine in it. It really looks beautiful.

Why am I telling this all? Because once I got it out of the box I was just lost. The dildo felt incredible in my hand. I am not quite sure what I expected, but what I got was much better. It felt so... real under my fingers for being pink and silicone and not anatomically correct. It has no odor at all. The surface is perfectly smooth and feels soft. The material is squishy, not too soft, not too hard. feels like a real great fit.

In my hands it is a little bit floppy, but not disturbingly so. If it is standing on its base, and the insertable part is moved back and forth (fast) it can accumulate and electrostatics charge.
As it is not cavernous, it conducts vibrations really well, should you wish to use it together with other toys.

Bent 1
Bend back

The dildo is made of high-grade silicone, latex and phthalate free. It is odorless, and smooth, high quality and safe. It does not have a taste, does not burn. It can be bent in half in either directions (see pictures). It does not damage the material, and regains the shape without deformation. When squeezed, it can be pressed a few millimeters, but not too much - like hard-consistency gummy bears. The outer surface is completely smooth, when running my hand over it glides and does not hop. It has a nice finish and no barb.

Design / Shape / Size

The ridges, as they slide along the internal walls, are perfect for G-spot stimulation, when sliding in and out they can put a lot of desired pressure on the right places, without actually having to find those spots. Because of the presence of more than one ridge even at a comfortable thrusting speed one can get a nice intense, frequent stimulation.

The size is a good fit for anyone with little experience with insertions. It can feel filling enough, but those who like more of a stretching feeling and a wider girth should choose a different toy.


It does not vibrate either, so it is completely waterproof too. Can be used with a harness or without.
It is discreet, if you consider the noise level, but if you forget it out, there is no denying what it is. It is not a small sized sex-toy, so you cant just slip it in a handbag and go, but neither is it huge or too heavy. You can always roll it up in a towel and put it in your suitcase, and get going.

Length: 7"
Insertable length: 6 1/2"
Circumference: 3 1/2"
Diameter: 1 1/8
Number of ridges: 4
    • Ergonomic


I have to add that I am still not used to penetration, but with a little bit of lube (use water based) it slid in place with a minimum amount of discomfort, and after a few thrusts I started to reconsider the ridges on it from "slightly annoying, too wide parts" to "oh my god, oh my god, oh m god, that was good, that hit just the right spot". Yes. It feels that good. It was filling without being too big. It gave me internal stimulation so far no other toy did and I do have a large number or G-spot vibes too. Yes, even without vibrations. I have to admit to orgasm I needed clitoral stimulation too, but I always did, so no big deal. That's why we have two hands.

I tried to use the dildo in a harness designed for solo fun. It was firm enough to provide easy penetration, and it worked well with a minimal amount of lubrication. It did not slip free from the ring, did not turn sideways and the base was sturdy enough to pull the dildo back by it without deformation, stretching or other problems.

It did hit the G-spot easily, especially because it is not designed to stimulate it in one spot only, but with all the ridges, one after another. So if you slide it in and out, those G-spot stimulating ridges slide all along the entire inner wall, and they can't miss the spot, even if you do not know where your G -spot it. For me, I think that is why it beat even G-spot vibrators - I did not need to focus on the where and how, and let go and enjoy - and I find that being able to concentrate solely on your fantasy is a good boost towards a better orgasm. It was firm enough to produce enough pressure, but not ridged. It bent to my body shape easily, so if you need something with a curve to do the job, it can, but it can be straightened out too, if you do not.

I mostly use it without a harness, and so far, I have not found anything I dislike about it.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Can be washed under running water and carefully dried with a towel. It is easy to do, needs no talc or powder or anything else. Simple and neat.

It can be boiled for a few minutes without deformation, and I am told it can be put in the dishwasher too, though I don’t have one.

Use only water-based lube as silicone-based ones can damage the toy. I store it in it's original box, as it has an inner plastic holder thing, that is molded in shape to the toy, therefore it cannot suffer deformation.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


That's the only thing I do not like about it. The package. its flimsy, non-discreet, and big - it is awkward to store your toy in it, especially if you have a bigger collection.

In the box

The box is a standard Tantus toybox - a see-though, weak plastic thing, with only general information about Tantus toys and nothing about the product itself. The box is see-through, as you can see on the picture, and does not hide what the toy is inside - so do not leave it out. It is suitable for storage, but keep in mind the box was not designed to bear a lot of extra weight - I would not stack anything on top of it.
    • Minimal
Follow-up commentary
I still love it. If I want penetration, it is still the first toy I reach for. Though, the simple plastic box it arrived in is starting to fall apart. I will have to invest in a cloth sack. The toy itself is still as good as new. I saw no decrease in quality. I'm definetely charmed!
