I’ve wanted a Tantus Tsunami for aaaaages, so when it was confirmed that the amazing folk at Tantus were sending me one to review, I made a right show of myself. I fist pumped, did a little air humping and hip grinding, and made my poor cats ashamed to know me.
When it arrived, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Taking it out of the box, I was a bit shocked to find out that it’s really quite small. I know Tantus’ site has clear measurements, but I’m not very good at visualising from numbers. Another thing that deflated me a bit, was that it didn’t appear to be as boldly textured as the pictures online made me believe.
With a shaft of 7 inches (all of it insertable) and a circumference of 5 inches at the base, and a weeny 3.75 at the tip, the Tsunami really is modest. The overall curve of the shaft is quite subtle, but the G-Spotting tip is nicely curved, so the whole thing is pretty much perfectly angled for that type of stimulation.
Three ripples run down the shaft, getting larger and more defined as they approach the base. This represents waves, giving the product its funky name. Those waves have their own little waves on them too, adding a little more gentle texture. A very bold ridge runs down the entire length of the back of the Tsunami, before running into three lovely bumps.
Tantus’ top quality, super smooth, firm yet pliable silicone makes this a comfortable toy to use, though it’s silicone of the shiny variety, so lube is essential to avoid drag.
The chunky, rounded base makes the Tsunami harness compatible, and as this is a vibrating dildo, there’s a hole in the base to accommodate a bullet. A single speed bullet came with the Tsunami, and Tantus also kindly sent me a spare. That hole isn’t just for bullets though. If you have a Tantus suction cup (I don’t) all vibrating dildos (Duchess, Flex, John Doe, etc) can be slotted on and stuck to any smooth surface!
I admit, I wasn’t really expecting to even like the Tsunami, but that just goes to show that I don’t always know myself as well as I think. I fucking love this thing, and I’ll tell you why…
Those waves that didn’t seem so special in the hand become spectacular in the vagina. The tip strokes my G-Spot, the frontal waves literally rip back and forth against my vaginal opening and urethra, and the bumps on the back… if you can imagine running a drum stick up and down a louvre door, you’ll get an idea of the sensation my perineum gets from those wonderful bumps.
I can’t take my time with the Tsunami. I need to really fuck myself hard and fast with it, but that’s not because I can’t orgasm if I go slow. I totally can, but the way it feels when I go as fast as my arm will let me is beyond amazing, and I won’t accept anything less from it. Even the Fella gets to let rip on me with this toy, and he says he can’t understand how I can take such brutal thrusts, but I like what I like, and I like being hammered with the Tantus Tsunami.
As I said earlier, the Tsunami is a vibrating dildo, and the first thing I’ll say now is, Tantus bullets are rubbish. I’m sort, Tantus, I love you and everything you do, but your bullets just don’t have what it takes to be felt through big hunks of solid silicone. To be completely honest, they’re not even enough to get me off clitorally, but their lack of power isn’t a problem for me in the slightest. I don’t actually like using Tantus dildos as vibes, I’d much rather use them as just dildos.
I do know others out there will probably like it though, and that’s why I’m gonna sing a song I’d bet every other blogger who’s reviewed a Tantus vibrating dildo has sung… get yo’self a We-Vibe Tango! Seriously, just swapping out the bullet for a Tango really changes things. The Tango has enough power behind it to be felt all the way to the tip, though it obviously doesn’t feel as powerful as it does when using it alone. But like I say, I prefer to use the Tango on my clit and let the shape and textures of the Tsunami take care of business internally.
As with all Tantus dildos, the Tsunami is boilable, bleachable (10% bleach solution), and you can even bung it in the dishwasher. With this kind of texture, I’m happy to use soapy water and antibacterial toy cleaner. The only dildos I boil are ones like the Tantus Bound, which has more nooks and crannies than Mary Poppins’ handbag. Speaking of bags, there isn’t one provided with the Tsunami, so you’ll have to take care of the storage situation yourself.
I absolutely adore the Tantus Tsunami, and even though initial appearances disappointed me, it’s surpassed the expectations I’d built up in my head the very first time I saw it on the web. If you’d like to try one for yourself, you can get one here.
