I don’t believe I’ve ever crushed as hard on an inanimate object as I have on the Tantus Purr dildo. This toy is undoubtedly one of my favourites and I’m extremely excited to share it with you today.
I purchased the Purr way back in January as part of Tantus’ new years sale. I was looking for a toy that had either great texture or dramatic size, and in the Purr I got both. My eyes were instantly drawn to the amazing pink pearl colour. This particular shade is just so pretty and it really does have a gorgeous pearly sheen to it that makes it look utterly magical. If pink isn’t your thing, the Purr also comes in Purple Haze, which is a stunning galactic purple shade.
To begin with, I want to talk about the texture on this toy. The Purr features a series of deep ribs down the shaft. I am always a little bit dubious when it comes to textured toys, because often I can’t feel those ridges and bumps during use. I’ve always scoffed at condoms that are “ribbed for her pleasure” because I’m yet to meet a woman who can detect those puny ribs, let alone derive pleasure from them. But the Purr is a whole other story. During entry, those ribs buzz a beautiful tune along my inner lips and drag deliciously inside me. The feeling is still subtle, but very pleasurable indeed.
The Purr is what I call a “front-loaded” toy, in that it has a pronounced head and is heavier towards the front end. I personally love toys that have this particular weight distribution because they feel wonderful against my G-spot. The Purr also feels great during shallow thrusting because of that big, bold head. The head is perfectly rounded which makes it easy to insert, although it’s not as tapered as some other toys I own.
Now, we need to talk about the size of this toy. When I pulled it out of the box, my eyes watered a little because I thought it would be much too big to play with comfortably. Before this, I always imagined that my vagina was a dainty little flower which should only be penetrated with slim, slender toys. And up until this point all of my toys fit that description. But the Purr made me realise how much I enjoy big toys. I don’t think I’ve quite earned the title of Size Queen, but I’ll comfortably admit to being a Size Princess. The Purr is 6.75 inches long and 1.4 inches wide at the head. So it ain’t little. But boy, does it feel great. The silicone is fairly firm, which means that it doesn’t have a whole lot of give to it. This and the girth of the toy means that I usually need a little warm up before I’m ready to jump in with this one. But once you’re properly ready, the size and width of this toy will fill you up and feel wonderful.
The flared base of the Purr is a very important feature. Firstly, it makes it harness compatible. It slips neatly into my harness and I honestly adore the way this looks when I’m wearing it. The flexibility of the silicone combined with the weight of the head give it a nice little ‘bob’ when you walk which I quite love. Additionally, the flared base means that you can use the Purr anally, for pegging or solo play. The size of this toy means that it is definitely not for beginners to butt play, but experienced pegging fans may enjoy tackling the challenge. Admittedly, I tried this one in my butt because I was dying to experience the intensity of those ribs, but sadly it had me beat. Although my vagina loves big toys, my butt still prefers the small, dainty variety.
You’ll also notice that the Purr has a hole in the bottom of the base. What on earth is that for? Well, it has two uses. The first are to insert a suction cup, which allows you to attach the toy to the shower, a chair, the wall or another flat surface for hands-free fun.
Secondly, the hole can be used to house a vibrating bullet to turn your dildo into a vibrator. The Purr comes with a small Tantus bullet, which fits snugly into the hole. Admittedly, I found the vibe very disappointing when used this way. The dense silicone really muffles the vibrations so they are pretty well dampened by the dildo. But on it’s own, the bullet really packs a punch. For a battery operated bullet, this thing has a fair amount of buzz. It operates with a single click-on-click-off button and only has one power setting, but it’s a nice basic bullet. I prefer using the bullet on my clit while thrusting with the Purr rather than using it in the intended way.
The Purr is made with Tantus’s gorgeous glossy silicone, which is smooth to the touch and completely body safe. It is waterproof and can be cleaned in the sink or even in the dishwasher for a really thorough clean.
The Purr retails for $74.21 on the Tantus site. However, you can use the code NESSBOW15 to get 15% off your purchase at the checkout. The quality of this toy make it well worth the price, and I’d happily recommend it to my readers. Although I purchased it nearly a year ago, and I have loads of other toys, this is one that I come back to over and over. It’s a winner in my eyes.
