Small silk - sex toy by Tantus - review by FieryRed

Add resource

Sweet, petite, and oh-so-pretty.

I bought this toy in a shop as an afterthought, because it was clearance-priced. I got a fantastic bargain, as it turned out, because this silicone is bendy, somewhat squishy, and just gorgeous in its shimmery simplicity. It does what it's meant to do with perfection.
Small and simple; silky smooth; somewhat squishy; slightly sparkly; superbly safe!
Ummmmm...too small and slick for some.

useful review
Are you a very small woman, internally? Maybe you're a "gold star" lesbian, like my girlfriend? Or perhaps you've never tried anal penetration, but are curious? Possibly, you just want a very easy introduction to double-penetration. Or it could be that you just want a toy that feels something like a finger inside you. The small "Silk" by Tantus is perfect for any of these situations.

This is, I believe, the smallest silicone dildo sold by EF. It has a very smooth texture, a rounded tip, a simple cylindrical shape with a gently curved shaft, a nice solid base, and is made of a fairly squishy, bendable silicone. All of these features contribute to the safety and comfort of this lovely little toy. The round tip and smooth silhouette make insertion easy and enjoyable; the curved shaft gently stimulates the G-spot or P-spot; the softer material helps prevent any accidental bruising; the wide base makes it both harness-compatible and safe for anal play; and the silicone it's made of is completely body-safe (not to mention shimmery and beautiful).

For those who are not already firm believers in silicone, here are the basics: First, it's completely non-porous, which means that it's easy to clean and that no bacteria or other ick can hide inside it. Second, it contains no harmful phthalates, like many rubber and jelly toys do. Third, it can be sterilized using bleach, boiling water, or the top rack of your dishwasher without soap. And fourth, you should generally NOT use silicone-based lubricants with silicone toys, as the lube can break down the material of the toy. (I love water-based lubes, as they're safe for my body, as well as for all of my toys.)

The Silk, like many silicone toys, has no scent or flavor. As far as color, my first choice would have been the purple, but this was not a previously planned purchase--my partner and I found it at half-price in a local adult shop, and all they had was pink. However, this is a VERY pretty pink, and I am not normally a fan of pink. It's a delicate, semi-translucent, cotton candy or seashell pink, with swirls of shimmer throughout. Being made of a smooth silicone, it will feel a little tacky or sticky when it is clean and dry; because of this, you'll want to store it someplace safe from dust and lint--preferably upright--and you'll probably also want to use lube (definitely, for pegging), and again, make sure it's NOT a silicone-based lube.

Sadly, I cannot provide actual measurements at this time, because I was careless in my cleaning a few months ago and accidentally threw out a plastic bag containing our Silk! We had wrapped it up for traveling, and I later forgot there was anything but recyclable packaging in there. It is back on my wishlist, now. or purple??
This was the first toy I ever used for penetrating my partner. Previously, I had only ever used a single finger; two wouldn't fit. She experienced no discomfort with the small Silk. On the contrary, she said it was mildly pleasurable. Alone, it wasn't mind-blowing, but in combination with some oral stimulation, it definitely enhanced the experience. Once I have it back in my collection again, I'll be trying it in some other ways, such as combining it with different types of vibration...
Follow-up commentary
I decided to go with the beautiful periwinkle-purple color for my replacement Silk dildo. If it was offered in Tantus' lovely pearly white, that would have been my first choice--fortunately, I was able to purchase the Acute in that color, at least!

Though my partner and I are both more advanced dildo users now than when we first purchased it, the Small Silk still sees use as a warm-up dildo for her, and occasionally for me as well when I'm feeling particularly tight and/or sensitive. I'm also keeping it around with the expectation that I will eventually want to re-explore anal pleasures, and this smooth little bit of Silk, with its sterilizable silicone composition and flared base, will be perfect for that purpose.

    Excellent review! I really love that you shared how you used this and what worked for her. That was very helpful. I've been wanting this one and the Small Purr, which is similar but has ribs. This one sounds pretty great, but I bet the texture of the Purr would really be pretty amazing for me. I think I'll get that one. Your review was really helpful. I can see this being a great dildo to pair with clitoral stimulation. Thanks for sharing.

    thanks for the review. :3 this is much too small for me, but seems like a good choice for when the hubs decides he's open to some anal

    thank you

    Some may say it's too small, but my husband and I use a couple of these to ease the anal stretching process. I think slipping some small ones in while he's in there too, is a lot better for me than a big ol' honker shovin' it's way in. These small ones help me stretch gradually.

    Thanks for the great comments! I'm so glad my review helped you make a decision, Kendra! Gogo, I'm thinking of re-trying anal and/or trying DP for the first time with this little guy...

    Thanks for the review. I found it too small but it's nice to see that you found it to be just right
  • FieryRed
    Thank you, Faust and Jubblies! It was just right for our purposes at the time, though the slightly-thicker Sedeux Please is better now.

    Thanks for your review, FieryRed!

    Thanks for the great review - it's nice to see that size accommodations don't simply go the way of the size queen and are made for people who need something small as well!
