One of my blogging highlights thus far has been becoming affiliated with Tantus. Why? I absolutely adore their products, their dedication to body-safe toys and the wide variety that they stock. They truly have something for everyone and that’s why I support them massively. I recently got my first review package from them which included the Cush 02, The Vamp, G-Force and the toy I’m going to be talking about today, the Warm Up.
I was expecting to a wait a while for the delivery, but my package arrived less than a week later. It was very discreet other than the legally required packing slip. Inside the box, I found my array of shiny new goodies and I couldn’t wait to try them all out. I was drawn to the Warm Up first, as I’d actually ordered one several months ago from a shop in the UK, but they had sent the wrong toy to me (twice) and I’d given up hope of getting one. It arrives packaged in the typical Tantus style, just a cardboard sleeve with a see-through window and information about the toy on the back.
The Warm Up is made from Tantus’s unique formula of ultra-premium silicone, which is completely body-safe and hypoallergenic. It’s phthalate free and non-toxic, as-well as being boilable and dishwasher safe, which offers a much deeper clean. I generally spritz my Tantus toys with my favourite antibacterial cleaning spray and rinse, but I will occasionally run them through the dishwasher if I have the house to myself.
As you can tell by the name of the toy and the included pictures, the Warm Up is not a big toy. It’s actually one of the smallest toys in my collection, along with the Compact (also made by Tantus). It offers up 4.5 inches of insertable length and 3.25 inches of girth at the widest point around the head. The shaft is extremely slimline at a mere 2.5 inches. It is slightly longer and wider than my index finger, which is perfect for those who are starting out with penetration, pegging or simply want a smaller toy to warm up with. It features a teardrop base, is completely anal safe and can be used manually or in a harness, providing you have a suitable O ring.
The Warm Up is quite a flexible toy, but not as much so as the Compact. I found the Compact tricky to insert as it would just bend out of position at the wrong moment, but the Warm Up is slightly firmer, which makes insertion much easier for me. I think I prefer the Warm Up to the Compact, as although similar in size, the Warm Up has a much more defined and bulbous head, with the curve being just below the head, rather than slightly down the shaft. The base is much easier to hold and thrust with too, which means I can make use of the full length of the shaft, rather than having to use the last inch of it as a handle.
When I used the Warm Up vaginally, I initially didn’t get much from it. It was too thin to massage the walls of my vagina and wasn’t long enough to stimulate my A-Spot. I decided to give G-Spot stimulation a go, and that’s where it worked its magic. As the Warm Up is slightly firmer than the Compact, it’s much better suited to my G-Spot. I need quite firm pressure against it for proper, orgasm-worthy sensations and although the Warm Up is not even close to the firmest toy I have, it is just firm enough to give me a gentle G-Spot orgasm.
It is not limited to vaginal play however, as it is fantastic for anal play. I think this dildo is probably best suited for this type of play, rather than vaginal, but each to their own. I found the Warm Up to be extremely comfortable during insertion (with a drop of Sliquid to reduce the drag) and even better during use. I like to thrust slowly with the Warm Up and occasionally add a twisting motion for extra sensation. It doesn’t just have to be used as a dildo either, it can also be used as a plug, but I didn’t find this to be as satisfying as I did when using it as a dildo (but maybe that’s just because I don’t really use butt plugs?).
Despite the slim stature of the Warm Up, it can be felt much more affectively when used anally and for that reason, this dildo is going to be primarily used for that. I would love to tell you how this toy works with the P-Spot, but my partner doesn’t use insertable toys at this time, however he’s not opposed to a finger or two every now and again, so maybe one day he’ll give it a go and I’ll update this review. If he were to use a dildo, he would probably go for this one over the Compact, due to it being smoother and easier to hold.
Overall, I’m glad I finally got my hands on this sweet little toy and I’m pleased with how it performed. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from it, but what I got was a unisex dildo, that can be used in a variety of ways for different sensations. I think this is the perfect toy for those who are new to penetration of any kind, those who are looking to branch out into pegging or those who are looking for a small, smooth toy to warm up with.
I received the Warm Up ($36.75/£24.94) from Tantus, in exchange for my honest review. Thank you! Affiliate links have been used within this post.
