Can you believe that Masturbation Month is nearly over and I haven’t written a single toy review? Well luckily the sweet folks at Tantus sent me the Slick Dildo to test and review for you. So in celebration of Masturbation May, let’s get down to it.
The Slick is one of Tantus’ dual density toys. This means that it’s got a firm inner core and a soft outer layer. I’ve never tried a dual density toy before so I was rearing to give these a go. And boy, they do not disappoint! The Slick is like the lovechild of a rock-hard toy and a jelly-soft dildo. It is firm enough to thrust vigorously but soft enough to feel comfortable and sensual. It’s like the Goldilocks dildo: neither too hard, nor too soft. It’s just right.
The Slick comes in two shades: Black and Purple Haze. I got one of each colour and I adore them both. I have several purple haze toys from Tantus, including my Silk dildos, and the pearly sheen on the silicone is so pretty. The black is shiny and dark and looks utterly formidable. I feel like such a badass when I’m wielding that midnight-hued cock in my harness. I also adore the fact that this toy doesn’t look like a cock. Many of Tantus’s dual density toys are realistic-looking dildos. Which is great if you like realistic toys….but I don’t. I much prefer toys that look phallic, but not like actual penises.
One of the first things I notice when I put these two toys side-by-side is the difference in sizes. There is a big leap between the small and the large, and initially I wished that there was a size in between. But once I began playing with the Slick dildos, I realised that each size had it’s distinct advantages.
The small Slick has quickly become my favourite dildo for pegging. The teardrop-shaped base makes it fit snugly into my harness. The tapered tip is perfect for gradual, easy insertion and it’s a great size. It’s big enough to provide a good amount of sensation and fullness, but it’s not so massive that it’s intimidating to the person on the receiving end. If your partner has a prostate, the spade-shaped tip and slight curve are great for gentle prostate massage. Because the tip is soft and squishy, it provides a gentle sensation rather than a harsh poke.
When I opened the box and saw the large Slick, I shook my head with disbelief. I truly didn’t think that this monster dildo would ever fit inside my dainty vagina, let alone feel good while doing so. I’m on the petite side and I know that my pussy is a tight squeeze. In addition to that, I have a fairly low cervix so I was sure that this dildo would be far too large to be inserted very far. But, as a dutiful sex geek I was determined to give it a red-hot go.
The Slick Large is the first sex toy to ever make me marvel at what my cunt is capable of. I know that, in theory, a vagina is able to accommodate a baby, and that there are loads of ladies who love being penetrated by big toys. But I never expected to be one of them. For years, I was deeply afraid of penetrative play, to the point where I saw a sex therapist. The thought that I would one day be tackling a toy of this magnitude, and loving it, would have been ludicrous to me a decade ago.
The dual density texture definitely helped me to enjoy the feel of this toy. Even though it’s nice and firm, it has a gentle softness that means it doesn’t feel harsh during play. The silicone is so smooth, the Slick lives up to it’s name, gliding in and out of your body. The head is nice and squishy, so it never once poked me in the cervix (a horribly un-fun experience that I’ve had with other, more solid, toys).
And that head….can we talk about the head for a second? The spade-shaped head on this toy is genius. Not only does it make initial penetration easier because it’s tapered, but it is incredible for G-spot play. If you’re new to G-spotting, I heartily recommend this toy. The head is so bulbous that it’s nearly impossible to miss your G-spot. And it’s so soft and malleable that it massages that spot so delightfully, moving with your body and gently compressing with your muscles as you orgasm.
In addition to looking and feeling great, the Slick is made with gorgeously smooth silicone, which means it’s body safe and easy to clean.
I absolutely love the Slick, and it has quickly become one of my favourite toys in my toybox. While I’m not yet ready to wear the title of Size Queen, I think the large Slick has at the very least made me feel like a Size Princess.
