I really like this vibrating mass of silicone from Tantus. The ridges are excellent for gripping with PC muscles. It feels fantastic when it is warmed to body temperature.
Dimensions: 6.5″ x 1.55″, 5.5″ insertable
Materials: Silicone dildo, plastic bullet
All Tantus products are made to last. They use the highest premium silicone found in the market. It is body-safe even for people with sensitive skin. The silicone is bleach-able, boil-able, odorless, hypoallergenic, and phthalate free. Silicone can also be cleaned with soap and water or any sex toy cleaner. Can you tell how excited I am to be reviewing for Tantus? I am a big fan of this company. They only make body safe products.
Okay, so this toy arrived to me in a plastic, partially see-through box. It is not very discreet. The box has all the information you need to know about Tantus. They make some bold statements on the box and they stand behind their product.On the packaging it says:
A Toy from Tantus is meant to be used. With minimal care, Tantus Toys can last a lifetime.
The writing on the box is in English mostly, with small blurbs in German, French and Spanish on the side.
The 2″ plastic bullet came separated from the dildo on the side of the Echo. The bullet was wrapped in plastic and is manufactured by B.M.S. Enterprises. The bullet takes three watch batteries, which are included. Use a bit of water-based lubrication on the bullet and insert it into the hole at the base of the Echo. (Silicone is only compatible with water-based lubrication.) The bullet is a bit tricky to get in and out w/o any lubrication. I found that squeezing the shaft at the end of the bullet and pulling the bullet helps to pop it out. The base has a nice flare to it, making it safe for anal play and harness compatible.
The vibrations from the small bullet travel surprisingly well up the shaft. The only part that sucks is that the bullet button sticks out when it is inserted. Using this toy with a harness might be difficult without accidentally hitting the button. I found myself hitting the button accidentally during play as well. Luckily, I am not fully committed to using the bullet that was provided. The hole is pretty standard and I am sure I will find something that will suit my harness demands. In the meantime, I have this awesome silicone dildo. It is not only beautiful but safe for use anally or vaginally. It might be too big for some users anally, it seems too big for me at the moment. Maybe after some warming up with my new Tantus Ryder I might be able to use this.
The head is a bit larger than the rest of the shaft. The textured ridges felt incredible for thrusting. I do recommend warming this up a bit before use. I washed this right before using it the first time with a sex toy cleaner and cold water, the Echo was cold for quite a bit before it warmed up to my body temperature. Silicone is good like that for temperature play. I don’t like cold, so I was sure to use warm water for cleaning prior to use after that experience.
I store this toy in a drawer with all my other dildos. Make sure to keep silicone away from other materials such as TPR, Latex and Jelly. Also, do not use silicone lubrication with this toy, it will ruin the finish and make it smell. I store the bullet separate since the button is so sensitive and sticks out a bit. Silicone can safely be stored with glass, metal, other pure silicone, and plastic toys.
The Tantus Echo retails for $65.99, it is on closeout sale at Tantus right now so you can get it for only $34.99. This is an excellent buy for such a quality toy.
I received this product from Tantus free of charge in exchange for an honest review. This review is in compliance with the FTC guidelines.
