Tantus Splash/Magma review: thoughtfully textured silicone dildo

The drips are in a league all their own.

I’m now the umpteenth per­son to say that there is noth­ing like the Tantus Splash. The dil­do has been dis­con­tin­ued but rein­car­nat­ed in red and black as the Tantus Magma.

I’m usu­al­ly not a big tex­ture fan. It all reg­is­ters as irri­ta­tion: the vagi­nal rug­burn feel­ing of the Tantus Bound, or the firm and nar­row­ly spaced ridges of the Tantus Echo, or how the sharp ridges of the MyStim Simon for heavy thrust­ing, or nubs on glass dil­dos.

What makes the Tantus Splash’s different?

It pos­sess­es an intense com­bi­na­tion of heavy tex­ture, chunky 1.75″ girth, and firm­ness. Contrasting with the mat­te shaft, the drips have a smooth fin­ish. The appeal is the thick, struc­tur­al tex­ture, rather than a fine sur­face tex­ture. However, unlike with the also deeply ridged Echo, the Splash’s drips are pro­nounced but posi­tioned com­fort­ably. There’s enough spac­ing among the drips that the Splash can bot­tom me out with­out pinch­ing my ure­thral sponge against my pubic bone.

G‑spot and A‑spot stimulation

Instead, the drips press up against my G‑spot and inter­nal cli­toris just past the pubic bone, while the fric­tion of the sil­i­cone pulls against my ure­thral sponge with each “out” stroke. The dimen­sion­al­i­ty of the drips is just right for that. It’s meant for slight­ly twist­ing back and forth, jig­gling in place with tiny thrusts, and clench­ing around to appre­ci­ate all 360 degrees of its glory.

I don’t use this toy the way I would use most dil­dos. There is a curved and ridged tip, but that’s not the star of the show. G‑spot stim­u­la­tion from the shaft is. As well, despite its size and firm­ness, it’s not some­thing I would use for cervical/fornical stim­u­la­tion. It just does­n’t apply pres­sure behind my cervix in any mean­ing­ful way.

Perineal sponge stimulation

The shape and firm­ness do, how­ev­er, excel at per­ineal sponge stim­u­la­tion. You can turn the toy to face the curve against the back vagi­nal wall, indi­rect­ly press­ing against the anus. Straighter, more flex­i­ble toys don’t do much in that depart­ment. Drastically curved or bul­bous toys when used that way vague­ly feel like I have to poo. The shal­low curve and lack of give with the Tantus Magma is just right for my per­ineal sponge; that’s not some­thing I can say for the oth­er toys in my collection.

Bottom line

In the future, I’d love to see Tantus release more deep-textured toys with wider spac­ing, round­ed con­tours, and more smooth space on the bot­tom of the shaft.

    I wish Tantus would bring this toy back! I was too hes­i­tant to get it a cou­ple of years ago, but I think I would real­ly enjoy the tex­ture now.

    I’m start­ing to sus­pect that I’m a tex­ture gal, so I’m intrigued by this toy

    Hi, won­der­ing if there is a dif­fer­ence in size or firm­ness between the two? Or is the col­or the only difference?

    Magma sounds nice. Both are love­ly but pre­fer more squish.

    I’ve start­ed to real­ly enjoy tex­ture, but it’s all been pret­ty sub­tle so far…good to know those dra­mat­ic drips can feel great!
