Tantus’ Mikey 02 god damnit!

So once upon a 3 weeks ago, I was all like “I should review the Mikey!” And I should have because it’s really great. And I’m gonna do it right the hell now. Unfortunately, I can’t get a crappy photo of it because it’s at my boyfriend’s house, and I’m hella forgetful, and bleuiwhedlqbdqn. Also, I have a weird, tangentially related IUD update that was preventing penetration from happening.

I’m bad at life.

The Mikey, however, is really good at life. The Mikey is thick, but not too; short and stout; and squishy, but only just so. The Mikey is made with your cervix in mind, if you have one. It is not a long dildo. In terms of thrusting, where normally I have to be careful with my cervix, and not ram large objects into it at high speeds, the Mikey doesn’t disturb it. But what the Mikey lacks in length, it makes up in (relative) width. With a diameter of 1.6″ it isn’t a dildo for the size queens. It’s the thickest thing I own and the thickest I can handle, for what it’s worth, and the texture, which is that more matte silicone, ensures there’s no shortage of sensation. The tip is unique in that it’s more like the shiny silicone that Tantus is known for, but the rest is the draggy kind. That dildo wants you to know it’s there, but wants to make entrance easy for you. BRILLIANT.

This is the only Tantus 02 toy I have, but it’s perfect consistency. I actually like it better than the Vixskin dual density (at least the Mustang’s) because it’s more dense and substantial. The squish is very shallow on the Mikey, and to me that gives it more body, but that’s a matter of personal taste. The consistency, I have found, provides more resistance during orgasm, which is a really cool sensation. I don’t really know how to describe that. It’s like the difference between a crunchy taco and a soft taco.

With a thick base, shiny head, and shorter shape, it’s pretty great for a harness, I imagine. You can get zealous with the thrusting without gouging anyone’s junk. Ditto having a partner use it by hand. Go nuts!

Couple of things though: 1. It only comes in “never seen the sun vampire flesh” and “maybe south of france flesh” and I got probably one of the last black ones. Boo. Also, if you need X-TREME g-spot stimulaion, maybe look elsewhere. While the Mikey has a kiiiiinda exaggerated head, and a wee bit of a curve, it isn’t laser-guided to the g-spot by any means. Just sayin.

Now, I wanted to get this review done during the month of Feb because Tantus is selling all 02 line dildos at 30% off with the code IHEARTYOU til the end of the month, which is like. Really really soon. You should prolly get your hands on one here.

Modding sex toys

I found this article about adapting sex toys for use by people with various physical disabilities. It’s a really cool article because it discusses some of the less obvious issues associated with disability, like increased or decreased sensation. Anyway, check it out here.

Sex toys are really important for reasons like this. They’re instrumental in providing sexual satisfaction to a wide variety of people who might feel limited by their physiology. Hooray tools!
