Tantus once again offering us a silky smooth chunk of silicone! Anal safe, harness compatible and all black! Check out my thoughts below.
Tantus packaging, Ohh Tantus, Thy packaging is wonderful. The packaging for the Silk like most of Tantus’s products is clean, simple and effective, The product is encased in a plastic clam shell that’s wrapped in printed cardboard. The Silk has no moving parts or fine details to be broken so rest assured it should arrive to you unharmed.
The phrase smooth sailing comes to mind when looking at the Silk medium, the entire toy is devoid of any texture at all other than the inset Tantus logo on the base but that’s not a bad thing. Because of the lack of texture and the smaller stature of the toy it makes the Silk a wonderful option for those looking for their first dildo, for either solo play or with a harness as the Silk lineup are all O-Ring harness compatible.
Cast from Tantus’s wonderful 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone the Silk Medium stands 13.3cm tall and 2.8cm in diameter, my specific Silk Medium is in black but it’s also available in purple and pink, Or if you’re feeling adventurous you could buy one from the Grab Bag program and possibly get a really funky and unique dildo.
The Silk lineup are all about the smooth glossy silicone that Tantus has used and the curved shaft, Made from firm silicone the Silk Medium still has a decent amount of flexibility to but don’t expect too much in the way of the toy having much give to it. Interestingly enough I think this is the first time I have seen noticeable imperfections in the silicone on a Tantus toy, they don’t detract in any way from the use of the toy but along the base there are some ridges and wrinkles that I haven’t seen before on a Tantus product. The curve of the Silk combined with the general hardness of the silicone should make for excellent G-spot or prostate stimulation in use.
“Jack of all trades, master of none, Often times better than a master of one” Somehow the Silk Medium while being for all intents and purposes extremely plain manages to tick off so many positive boxes.
Using the Silk Medium feels like your meeting an old friend, Everything about it just seems comforting and relaxing, Insertion with the help of some water based lubricant is super easy and once it’s inserted nothing feels awkward of out of place, Everything just sorta works. I don’t get heaps of prostate stimulation from this but more than enough to know it’s there and hitting the right place, While the dildo has no texture the surface itself is a lot rougher than on the Charm 2 that I have previously reviewed and makes for some pleasant texture like sensations when thrusting.
While I don’t have any photos I can assure you that the Silk Medium works great in a harness and can easily be orientated with the curve facing up or down based on your position and preference, One thing that both me and my partner really liked about it was that it wasn’t too long, My butt tends to really dislike anything over about 14cm (5.5″) in length and we were able to use it without fear of discomfort or pain no matter how intense things got.
The base is small enough to get a easy hold of for thrusting during solo play but it will require a hand to keep it pinned down when your riding it. Most of the sensations I get from this toy are centered around my anus with this toy, It’s not large enough to offer a stretching or filling sensation and while the tip does hit my prostate it’s not enough to make a significant difference in my orgasms.
Tantus have succeeded in making a dildo that doesn’t fill a particular niche but it really doesn’t need to because it’s a perfect dildo for just having fun! It’s great in a harness, Pretty decent at prostate stimulation, A good thruster and it’s small enough not to intimidate people looking for their first toy. My only real complaint with the Silk Medium is that the Tantus logo needs some extra attention during clean up but that’s not saying much. The Silk lineup would be an amazing starting point for anyone looking to try out harness play, or for their first anal safe dildo. Tantus sells the Silk Medium for $44.92 but you can pick it up through the aforementioned Grab Bag program for a fraction of that really making this toy a no-brainer for anyone looking for a great multipurpose dildo.
A big thank you to Tantus who sent me this product to review in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
