When my lovely friends at SheVibe offered the Tantus Vamp for review, I was initially “meh”; I have what’s becoming a sizable collection of dildos and few of them really wow me, many are downright painful. I’m still figuring out what works for me, and it’s a tedious process when I could just snuggle up with my We Vibe Touch and get it done with. In the end, my overwhelming love for everything Tantus1 convinced me I should accept. This decision was a good one, because the Vamp ended up being a big step in figuring out what works for me when it comes to dildos.

The Tantus Vamp (now in the beautiful Tantus purple haze color, which is what I got- it also comes in a very pale “skin tone”) isn’t anything spectacular to look at; while beautiful like all Tantus products, there are no bells, whistles, or testicles involved in this straight-shafted semi-realistic toy. Made from Tantus’ signature 100% medical grade, pure premium silicone, this product has some give and flex to it but is still very solid; if you like some serious squish, look elsewhere. There is very mild and unnoticeable texturing down the length of the toy, ending with a prominent head that comes to a very rounded and subtle point. Tantus’ thick base makes this both anal-safe and wonderfully harness compatible.

You may have seen in previous posts that I have a rather fraught relationship with my G Spot: it’s not very cooperative, and I’m still figuring out what it takes to be friends with it. This is a normal part of having a G Spot; while some of us g-spot-havers are lucky enough to figure it out early on, some of us have a more frustrating time with it. I take it as a challenge and a bonding experience to figure out what works for mine.

One thing I have learned in this process is that my G Spot is very, very sensitive to certain textures. Take the Tantus Duke for example; I don’t have any issue inserting this relatively large toy because of its rounded head, but that lip! Though much more subtle than the one on their monster of a dildo, the T Rex- it’s just not for me, even with warming up. It feels like someone is pulling broken glass across my g spot like a window-washer’s squeegee; it feels like pulling nails across a chalkboard. This isn’t any fault of the dildo, but my preferences - someone else might like this feeling, or feel it differently!

So ridges are bad, but I had yet to find a dildo my G Spot had really gotten along with… until the Vamp came on the scene. Where the head of the toy meets the shaft, there is a subtle bump that is just prominent enough to reach out to my G Spot. Long story short, this toy is amazing for my very particular, very sensitive to certain textures G Spot. My partner also really likes it for mild P-Spot play, though he notes that the length and straightness of the toy are difficult for him to maneuver with- I don’t have the same issue, but I’ve never used it anally.

Overall, I’d recommend this sterilizable 100% medical grade silicone toy to anyone looking for mild g spot stim- though this is anything but mild for me personally. Thanks to SheVibe for sending me this fantastic toy- what I thought would be “meh” has become an integral part of things here at my dildo lair of justice. As always, thanks to Tantus for making yet another fantastic product that I know I’ll cherish for years to come, as sappy as that sounds.
