The Duchess is a dildo that appeals to the senses. From its gorgeous, blue-to-white, ombré color. To the undeniably satisfying squish of Tantus’s  Super Soft™ silicone encasing the firm, inner-core within. Culminating with the magnificent feeling of maximum fullness that its 1.8 inches of diameter offer me.

If you happen to be new to the sex toy scene and in search of the crème de la crème of dildos, then let me direct you to Tantus, the creator of the Duchess vibrating dildo.Tantus Vibrating Dildo

Tantus is a current industry leader, founded by Metis Black. A pioneer, in the industry’s nearly twenty-year push toward safer sex toy production. Her mission began with a revolutionary new idea: Putting the highest-quality, body-safe, silicone, sex toys into the hands of mainstream buyers. Which up until 1997 hadn’t been easily accessible to those out of “the loop” so to speak. During this era, jelly dildos ruled the day.

Due to the success of Black’s vision, today, Tantus, is well on its way to cornering the market in premium, silicone dildos.

Their dildos are made of 100% ultra-premium silicone. Created with both, ergonomic and anatomic, awareness. By a company that’s equally concerned about of the impact they make on the environment. Meaning Tantus’s dildos are not only body-safe they are also Earth friendly. What more can you ask for?

Tantus not only prides itself in quality, they are also continually striving toward new, highly creative ideas to add to their toys. An example is the O2 Dual Density line, that the Duchess is a part of. The Duchess, like all the O2 toys, has a firm, inner, silicone core encased by an outer shell of Tantus’s proprietary Super Soft™ silicone. This outer layer is super squishy, and as stated earlier, satisfyingly so.Tantus Duchess Vibrating Dildo

While the Duchess is non-realistic in appearance, with a smooth shaft, and a limited amount of detail. It makes up for this lack of texture, via the realistic feel created through the combining of its two silicone densities. This skin like softness also helps to make the slightly above average girth of the Duchess more manageable. That along with an abundance of water-based lube.¹

The Duchess is what I would call a little above the average in the size department. It’s more than ample with 6.5 inches in length and a girth that maxes out around 6 ½ inches.² The thickest part being the head which generates a spectacular source of g-spot and p-spot stimulation. Yum.

With a price of $106.00, I realize the Duchess is more an investment piece when compared with some of the more affordable dual density sex toy lines. Yet, with proper care and maintenance, this is a dildo that you can get years of use and years pleasure from. Tantus dildos are made to pass the test of time.Tantus Vibrating Dildo

Not only is the Duchess durable, it is feature rich. It doubles as a vibrator. With an opening³ in the base for the included, bullet vibe. Though, as is often find with similar models, the We-Vibe Tango makes a perfect companion to the Duchess. Delivering an increase of intensity, the included bullet just can’t touch.

The Duchess’s flared base also means that it’s harness compatible and safe for anal use. So, all in all, you’re getting a toy that can be used in many situations. Features that run the gamut of uses. An all-around type of toy or rather a swiss army knife of sex toys.

The Dutchess is a perfect addition to my growing arsenal of pleasure utensils. Well worth the higher price.

¹Always use water-based lube with silicone toys. To avoid breakdown and damage to the silicone toy.

²With a diameter of 1.8 inches, the Duchess may require a warm-up dildo. Working up to its larger girth. (6.5″)

³The opening can also be used with Tantus’s optional suction cup base.

I know what you might be thinking, “Why another rabbit vibrator?” Particularly if you consider all the challenges they bring. You may even be asking yourself “Is she a glutton for punishment?”

The quickest answer to that is, no, I don’t intentionally use rabbit-style vibrators to appease my inner masochist. Although I do have submissive tendencies. I don’t particularly enjoy solo, orgasm denial via rabbit-style vibes that are poorly aligned with my genital configuration.

Reminiscent of the Unites States and the former U.S.S.R’s technology spurred, race to the moon. It appears as though today’s sex toy manufacturers are in a race of their own. Vying to see who can come up with the most technologically advanced functions to incorporate into their dildos and vibrators.

In the ever expanding race to get the rest of us off, they continue upping the ante. With hopes of creating the ultimate,

You’ve probably heard those old clichés, a time or two. The ones that declare a girl can never have too many shades of lipstick, designer handbags, or amazing shoes. While of course, the raging femme in me tends to agree whole heartedly. I’d also like to amend that list just ever so slighty. Updating it to reflect the lifestyle of modern day femmes. By adding clit vibes to the list of “Can Never Have Too Many Ofs”.

If you haven’t had the chance to see one of Fun Factory’s Stronic vibrators in person, I mean actually hold one in your hand and feel its thrusting. Then it’s hard to express to you in plain English what an astonishing innovation this pulsating line of toys truly are. After doing a bit of precursory reading on the Stronic pulsator line. I thought I could accurately predict what one of these toy’s movements would feel like,
