Review: Purr by Tantus

     Seriously, one of the most underrated dildos I’ve ever tried. I don’t understand why more people aren’t raving about this glorious hunk of silicone. I originally bought this as my very first Tantus dildo, mostly to be used solo, but possibly with a future partner if I ever suckered anyone into settling down with me. Now that I’ve gained more experience with it, I prefer it for solo play unless my partner is in the mood for very slow sex.

     Let’s just get to the boring technicalities of this toy. It’s silicone, which means it’s non-porous, phthalates free, latex free, it’s sanitizable, and it’s body safe. You can sanitize it by boiling it, putting it in the dishwasher (without dish washing detergent and only on the top rack), or you can wash it down with a 10% bleach and water solution. If you aren’t sharing it between partners or in different orifices, you can just wash it down with an antibacterial soap and water and call it a day. It’s important to properly sanitize toys between anal and vaginal use so bacteria isn’t spread. The same safety precautions should be made when using it between partners.     Storage can be kinda tricky. It’s made of a firm, tacky silicone that is an absolute lint magnet. I keep it in the original packaging without the sleeve. I’ve heard of others using plastic ziplock bags. By keeping it stored away properly, I don’t generally have to wash it down before use. I do look it over very closely to make sure it hasn’t picked up a ton of hair and lint in between uses.

     The Purr measures at 7″ long, with 6 1/2″ insertable length, and 4 3/4″ in circumference. There’s a very slight curve to the shaft which makes the ribbing really hit my G-spot. The flared base makes it anal safe, and great for harness play. It stands erect in a harness and doesn’t flop around much. The rounded head isn’t much larger than the rest of the shaft, but the shaft does get smaller just a bit as you work your way past the head. There’s a very slight popping sensation as you insert it past the head. It definitely makes me feel full.
     I love this dildo for solo play. More than my Echo, more than any glass dildo I have, and more than G-spot vibrators. For solo, I like using slow thrusts to really feel all of the ribs. It’s like the ribs demand that I have an orgasm and it just pulls it right out of me. Strapped to my partner, it isn’t the best. The sensations that the ribs provide are deadened by fast thrusting, and the stiff silicone makes accidental cervix bumping a major pain. I prefer my Echo for strap-on sex.
     One benefit to Tantus dildos is that some come with a vibrating bullet that you can swap out for a different brand. I don’t have much luck with these Tantus bullets. I’ve heard that they’re supposed to be multi-speed, but mine have only been single-speed. I do love that they are just about the same size as my We Vibe Salsa. The Salsa fits perfectly into the Purr. Just add a little lube and it’ll be easy to remove it once you’re finished. The vibrations travel nicely up and down the shaft of the Purr, and really make those ribs feel 10x better.Overall Rating: 5/5

While it doesn’t work great for me during strap-on sex due to my shallow cervix, it’s still a fabulous hunk of silicone and I adore it for solo sessions.
