As a part of the Eden Loves Bloggers program I was given the opportunity to choose 2 items that totaled out to be $50 in value. I chose the Tantus Curve Dong, as one of my items. I also requested the Shunga Oriental Bath Crystals as my second item, I got those in Ocean Scent the review for that will be in another post.
What Is It & How Is It Used?
The Tantus Curve is a dildo that can be used by male or female, for vaginal penetration or anal penetration. With the curve at the top you can get G-Spot or P-Spot stimulation. If you are into using harnesses for strap-on play the Curve can be used for male and female sex for double penetration or for female partners who like penetration. The Curve doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles and doesn't vibrate. Since there is a flared base making the Tantus Curve safe for anal usage without having to fear that it will get lost inside your anal cavity. Since there aren't any mechanical components to this toy you can take it into the bath,shower, hot tub or pool if you wished. There really is no limits of where you are able to use the Curve. You can get the Curve, in 3 different colors:Midnight Purple,Black and Purple. I got mine in Midnight Purple.
Material & Texture
The Curve is made out of 100% body safe silicone, meaning that it is nonporous,hypoallergenic,phathalate free and can be sterilized. The silicone of the Curve is smooth with very little drag when it runs along your skin. On the underside of the dildo you will find around 5 ribs that go down the shaft for added pleasure. Since silicone is a nonporous material you don't have to worry about using a condom when sharing amongst different parts of your own body or partner sharing. I would still recommend cleaning or using a condom if you plan to share in the same session. Silicone also doesn't hold on to bacteria that can cause infections which is one reason why I get all my toys made out of silicone. This particular dong is pretty firm but flexible.
The Tantus Curve is designed for G-Spot or P-Spot stimulation, hence the curve at the end of the dildo. With the ridges down the shaft it helps add pleasure and amazing sensations when in use. This is a simple shaped dildo that has a slightly life like head for easy insertion. As mentioned earlier in the review this is anal safe and harness compatible. The Curve has a wide base at the bottom with the Tantus name stamped on it.
The Curve measures in at:
6 1/2 Inches Long
5 3/4 Inches Insertable
4 1/2 inches Circumference
1 3/8 Diameter
With the size and shape of Curve I wouldn't say he was very travel friendly if you were going to be traveling by public transportation. If you were to fly with him and your bag was searched they would know what the Curve was used for. If you share a home with someone or you frequently have people over an you don't want them knowing of your toys this is one you would not want out in the open. The Curve isn't a very discreet toy.
The Curve comes in a clear plastic package that states it is made of 100% platinum silicone. The packaging is nowhere near discreet as you can see the toy from the outside. It also states that Tantus makes the world's softest toys for adults. I beg to differ on that statement though ;) The packaging that the Curve comes in can be used for storage if you wanted to but it isn't a very sturdy package. If giving this as a gift I would wrap it up nicely in wrapping paper. Since the package is made of plastic you could easily recycle it as well if you didn't want to use it for storage.
Care & Maintanence
Caring for your Curve is pretty simple since it is silicone there are several ways you can clean it as well as sterilize it.
To sterilize your Tantus Curve you can either boil it in a pan of water on the stove for 3 minutes, toss it in the top rack of your disherwasher without dish soap or soak it in a 10% bleach solution for 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly. If you don't wish to sterilize your toy you can simply spray it down with an antibacterial toy cleaner and wipe clean. Another way to clean your Curve is by washing it with hot water and soap.
Since the Curve is made of silicone it is recommended to use ONLY water based lubricants with it.
Overall I enjoyed the Curve from Tantus, I just wish it was more squishy like the Vixskin line that I have fallen in love with. I did get great G-Spot stimulation from this. I didn't feel any drag in the silicone which is always a plus :)
