My Superman

For your 'big boy' fantasies, The General is the definitive choice. You will not be disappointed by these subtle ridges and smooth, 100% silicone texture.
Smooth curves and well made, solid silicone.
Might have limited harness use.

useful review
When I ordered The General by Tantus, I had a general idea of what I was getting myself into. But it is something altogether different when you have it in your hand. After pulling it from its packaging, I am reminded of a scene from the movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The character Bacon is explaining the danger of crossing a porn king, 'Hatchet Harry': Harry didn't think that he did a very good job, so he grabbed the nearest thing to hand, which just so happened to be a 15 inch black rubber cock, and proceeded to beat poor old Smithy to death with. And that was seen as a nice way to go. Now, that is why you pay Hatchet Harry, when you owe. Now no, The General isn't rubber nor is it 15 inches; but the reason I am reminded of that scene and inspired to quote it is the fact that this 1lb piece of 100% silicone is defiantly a weapon. Not that I condone or recommend it being used as one, but this thing is SOLID!

Though it is described as an anal dildo, with a 2 inch diameter, it is a bit too much for anal use in our household. However, it has proven to be a very popular choice as a vaginal use dildo. It has a gentle curve and subtle ridges that make it enjoyable for either short or long-term play sessions. Just don't forget the water-based lube!

With the right sized o-ring, in our household The General was used with the vibrating velvet harness by Sportsheets and the Cherry Jaguar, double strap harness by Aslan Leather. Keep in mind though, the Aslan Leather harness is listed as having a diameter of 1 3/4 inches. But because it is leather, it stretched just enough to accommodate the 2 inch diameter dildo; a tight fit, but a fit nevertheless. You will want to double check the size of your own harness to make sure it is compatible.

There is a reason why Tantus remains in my personal top-three list of companies which provide quality sex toy products. You know you are getting a well made item that is not only enjoyable, but safe! Like many of their products, The General is 100% silicone, which means it is non-porous and will repels dirt and bacteria, phthalates free, hypo-allergenic, made of food-grade material, and latex free.

This of course also means that it is easy to clean and store. Usually hot water and antibacterial soap does the trick, though a quick boil in water will also completely disinfect it. Because of the high grade material, it does not need to be stored separately (unless of course you want to give it its own home) from other dildos of varying materials. In our household it is thrown into a steamer trunk at the end of the bed with leather, silicone, nylon and steel products. It comes out clean and ready for use each time!

Knowing that you cannot ruin this massive dildo makes it well worth the price. It will always be there for you, for years to come. For role playing fantasies that requite the overly well endowed, The General is the perfect for your needs and will not disappoint!

    How was the stimulation? primarily G-spot, clitoral, mix, 75/25?

    How well did it stay up in the harness?
  • bunky
    For our household, the large head offered good clitoral stimulation, though I agree it is primarily for G-spot/vaginal stimulation. (75/25 is a fair assessment). The curve is subtle enough that we found it enjoyable, without feeling like someone is punching you in the stomach. You can of course angle it to accommodate your own preferences.

    It is a bit heavy in the harness, for obvious reasons; but I tend to wear harnesses rather tightly for more control, so I didn't have a problem with it. Others may want to test ways that work best for them (with any strap on!), as it may work better for them if worn lower or higher on their pubic mound.

    Hope that helps.
