My review of this toy begins with a geeky faux pas. Tantus contacted me a few months ago to inform me of the release of the new Destiny Super Soft dildo and to ask if I’d be interested in trying it. I replied eagerly that “I’m super keen to try the Density!” The DENSITY. Bugger! I quickly realised that I’d made a George McFly-esque error and sent a second email to apologise. Luckily the folks at Tantus have a brilliant sense of humour and popped a Destiny in the post for me.
The Destiny made an instant impression on me for a few reasons. My first thought upon opening the package was “This dildo is flippin’ huge”. The Destiny is significantly larger than any of the other toys in my collection. Initially I was slightly concerned for the safety of my pussy, but then I remembered how much I’d enjoyed the Slick, another girthy Tantus toy, and tried to quell my fear.
The second thing that I noticed was the colour. Tantus sent me the copper shade, which was a pleasant surprise. The copper shade is a warm desert tone with just a hint of sheen. It’s a wonderful change from all the pinks and purples that are abundant in the world of sex toys. The Destiny is also available in Purple Haze. The burnished copper shade really sets the Destiny apart from my other toys and gives it an almost regal appearance.
My final impression of the appearance of this toy was that it was by far the most realistic dildo that I’ve ever owned. I normally dislike realistic looking sex toys. I usually shy away from flesh tones, veins and testicles on my dildos. The Destiny features a pronounced head with a deep coronal ridge. There is some light vein-like texture on the shaft as well. And the lower part of the toy is adorned with rounded, plump testicles. In spite of these details, I wasn’t put off by this toy. I think the copper colour negated the realistic features and stopped the Density looking like an actual cock. And for that I am extremely grateful.
Now, those ‘realistic” features aren’t just for show. Once I put this toy through it’s paces, I really came to appreciate how functional they were. The ridged head felt incredible upon penetration. When I experimented with some initial shallow thrusts, I could feel that ridge popping delightfully against the entrance of my vagina. And once I got into some deeper play, the head worked my g spot perfectly. The testicles felt lovely pressing against my perineum, and when I flipped the toy around I realised that they lined up just right with my clitoris. The Destiny is so much more than a gorgeous toy, it is equipped with loads of stimulating features and potential for creative play.
The Destiny also features a flared base, which makes it ideal for harness play and safe for anal play. I can confirm that this is a great harness toy. The shaft is mounted on the base at an angle, which means that when you wear it in a harness it stands erect and is easy to manoeuvre.
Now, I mentioned that the size of this toy was intimidating to me at first. Well, it didn’t take me long to realise that the Destiny’s size wasn’t as scary as it first seemed. The Destiny clocks in at 4cm diameter, with 12.7 cm of insertable length. Now, while that seems massive, the texture of the silicone makes this toy much more manageable than it appears. The Super Soft material is delightfully squishy, and it sort of moulds to the shape of your body. There are no harsh edges or hard textures that hurt or make you feel stretched. Because the toy is so wonderfully soft, I found it really easy to take. It has a similar softness to the ever-popular jelly toys, while still being firm enough to thrust with.
Unlike those jelly toys, which are usually porous and brimming with pthalates, The Destiny is made of 100% premium silicone. This means that it is body safe, with no pores that can harbour germs and bacteria. Silicone is very hygienic and super easy to clean. You can wash it in the sink with mild soap, or for a deeper clean you can boil your toy or even pop it in the dishwasher.
There is really only one thing I didn’t love about the Destiny Super Soft, and that is the texture of the silicone. The super soft silicone feels really tacky to the touch. When I took the toy out of the packet, I thought that there must have been some residue on the toy, because it felt really sticky in my hand. I have noticed that the tackiness goes away when the toy is wet or covered in lube, but as soon as I wash and dry it that unpleasant texture comes back. Unfortunately, this texture also makes the toy a lint magnet, attracting dust and bits of cat fur within moments of being cleaned. While this isn’t a detrimental flaw, it is the one thing I would change about this toy if I could.
The Destiny Super Soft is an amazing dildo, which is perfect if you’re wanting to experiment with larger toys. The soft texture makes it less intimidating and more comfortable to play with, while still giving you loads of sensation. It’s awesome if you’re into strap-on play and it’s a great hybrid between a realistic and non-realistic dildo.
