Review: VIP dildo by Tantus

 

The Tantus VIP dildo is sadly on closeout sale right now as it’s being discontinued (or at least that’s what I think closeouts are for. I haven’t personally talked to Tantus so I can’t speak for sure). I had to snatch one up because, like most Tantus dildos, it was on my wishlist for quite awhile. The VIP is a medium to medium/large phallic silicone dildo that also has testicles protruding from the base. I know, not something you’d expect a lesbian couple to want to own. But I needed to have it! In my head, the extra surface area from the longer and wider base would mean me or my partner (whoever is wearing it in a harness) could potentially get more clitoral stimulation while thrusting. I also thought that the larger base would make it easier for me to control while masturbating, and I loved the look of that curved shaft.

The VIP has an insertable length of 6 3/4″. The diameter of the head is 1 5/8″, and at the base of the shaft before the balls it’s 1 1/2″. The base of the dildo is 4 5/8″ long, and 2 3/8″ across, giving it a substantial amount of surface area to allow for clitoral stimulation for the wearer. The shaft has a prominent curve, great for G spot and prostate stimulation. The VIP has a sculpted head, simulating the glans penis. The prominent corona of the glans really is my favorite part of this dildo. I know I go on and on about how much I love texture, but this under-textured dildo still satisfies me due to its curve and slightly bulging, kinda stiff textured head. I love it!

As always, Tantus silicone is hypo-allergenic, phthalates free, non-porous, easily sanitized, and latex free. Cleaning this silicone is easy; soap and water, 10% bleach to water solution, top rack of the dishwasher (without detergent) on the sanitizing cycle, or boiling it for 10 minutes will work.

The VIP is a very sturdy, non-plushy dildo, so be careful when thrusting hard. The finish on the VIP is unlike the other Tantus dildos I’ve tried. It’s more of a matte velvet finish that substantially cut on the usual drag and lint magnetism other Tantus dildos have. The base of the dildo is the usual shiny Tantus silicone, and comparing how the two different finishes pick up on lint when I place the VIP on my bed shows that the velvet finish hardly picks up any at all. This is a huge deal for me since most of my dildo fucking happens with my partner, and we don’t always like to be careful. The VIP isn’t very bendy or giving. It somewhat easily bends upwards in the same direction of its already-present curve, but only bends downwards enough to completely straighten out the shaft. It won’t bend anymore beyond that.

underside  The VIP comes in black, pink pearl, and purple haze. I purchased the purple haze because purples and violets are my favorite colors. The purple has the same gorgeous, glittery iridescence as my Tantus Purr, but the matte finish makes it look even better.

Now for my experience with it; I love it. For solo play I usually enjoy most silicone dildos I try, but with harness play with my girlfriend I’m very picky. I never thought I’d find a dildo that I enjoy [maybe] as much as my Tantus Echo. The Echo feels amazing strapped to her. I can have a gushing G spot orgasm easily. But the VIP is slowly taking over as queen supreme of what my pussy needs. Oh, and get this, I actually enjoy the balls! What?! Not for fantasy purposes, but they are actually useful! When I’m masturbating and get sick of thrusting the dildo, but don’t want to take it out and throw it to the side, I usually prop the balls under my ass and go for clit stimulation with my Salsa. The balls help me keep the dildo inserted and also give me some stability to rock on the cock hands-free. That’s a feat in my book, but I’m a lazy masturbator and hate having to use both hands.

My GF’s thoughts; the balls make it easier for her to control when she’s wearing it or thrusting it with her hands, both because the dildo then doesn’t pull away as much in our Rodeoh, and also because it helps her feel whether or not the dildo is slipping out of me. She said it’s very easy to thrust hard and fast by gripping the base and balls between her thighs, and I can attest to this. Normally the Rodeoh would stretch just a tad as she pulled out, so thrusts wouldn’t be as hard because of it. She also said the clitoral stimulation was decent. Our Rodeoh makes dildos sit rather high on her pubic bone, which is great if we wanna use a bullet vibrator in the Rodeoh’s pocket so she can get some clitoral stimulation, but it sucks if we’re skipping a vibrator. The balls of the VIP fit nicely in the Rodeoh and got her off easily. One complaint she does have is that it’s heavy, but what can ya do?

Overall Rating: 5/5

We love it. It’s exactly what I expected when I had my eye on it for almost a year. No regrets and nothing more to add.

The VIP Super Soft is on sale now at PinkCherry.com. The Super Soft is the same design as the VIP, but is made of Tantus’s cushier silicone.
