As a lover of body-safe toys and materials, I’m so thankful for Tantus. I only purchased my first toy of theirs back in December, which just so happened to be the Curve, but my collection has grown substantially since then. Tantus are a trustworthy and highly respected brand in the adult industry because they make all of their products from a unique formula of ultra-premium silicone, which is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, phthalate-free, latex-free and completely body-safe. This product is boilable and dishwasher safe, so you can get an extra thorough clean if you wish or simply spritz with toy cleaner and rinse, which is fine if you’re not switching between orifices and/or partners.
It arrived quickly and discreetly as always from Lovehoney, even despite the Christmas rush. The Curve itself arrived in typical Tantus fashion, in a simple cardboard box with a see-through window and a bunch of information about the toy and the brand on the back.
The Curve has become one of my top five dildos of all time and is definitely a toy I’d want on a desert island. This toy seems to fit my criteria down to the letter. It has my desirable insertable length which is around 6.5 inches, with a further inch of base to grip onto. 7 inches of length is usually my maximum for vaginal penetration, but it depends how generous my cervix is feeling. It has an ideal circumference, that’s perfectly manageable and comfortable at 4.5 inches. I may be starting to enjoy bigger toys, but with the Curve’s shape and texture, I don’t think it needs any further girth to be pleasurable.
The Curve is fairly firm, but still offers some slight flexibility. I can’t make the head touch the base, but I can adjust it to the left or right to make it fit more comfortably with my body. It isn’t squishy at all so a strong serving of water-based lubricant is essential for me to insert and use this toy. Combine the firmness with the drag of the silicone and there’s too much friction for it to be comfortable to use, so lubricant really does help to make my time with the Curve more enjoyable.
I’ve found a few ways to use this toy, but using it for G-spot stimulation is how it works best for me. It is a truly fit for purpose toy as it has been designed specifically to target the G and P-spot. I don’t have a P-spot as I’m a female, but I still find this toy enjoyable when used anally. I haven’t tested it on my partner as this is too big for him at the moment, but if I ever do, I’ll update.
It might seem obvious by the title, but the curve is, well, curved. It begins to curve near the base of the toy, rather than near the head like the Warm Up. I usually prefer the curve to be near the tip, but for some reason, I feel like the curve of the Tantus Curve has been perfectly placed. This toy hits my G-spot with military precision pretty much every time I use it and I don’t even need to add a clitoral vibrator to the mix to get off. I can orgasm from the G-spot stimulation alone almost every use. Now, if you know me, you’ll know that I’m one of those women who rarely orgasms from penetration alone, but there are some exceptions and the Curve is definitely one of them.
The very first I used the Curve alone, I managed to squirt uncontrollably. I haven’t been able to do this every single use, or even almost every single use, so I can’t class the Curve as a reliable squirting tool, but it is capable of doing the job if I’m paying attention to how I’m using it and I’m in the right mood. I may have to get my hands on a Liberator Throe and do some more testing with my technique in the near future.
Not only is it great for G-spot stimulation, but its been working on my A-spot too. I don’t find it firm enough to bring me to an A-spot orgasm, but it is firm enough to begin stimulating it. The Curve doesn’t find my A-spot on a regular basis, as I have to be in the right mood and frame of mind, but on the few occasions it has, its felt good.
I would happily use the Curve for a G-spot or blended orgasm first, then continue to use it to begin the build-up to an A-spot orgasm, before introducing something larger to finish the job, like the Flurry 02. Whilst it is a bit of a disappointment that I can’t bring myself to climax this way, I realise that it wasn’t designed to stimulate this region, so the fact it does in the first place, is in my opinion, just another reason to love the Curve.
When I bring the Curve out to be used anally, I generally let my partner take control. I let him thrust the toy in and out slowly or ask him to twist it gently, so I can feel the lightly pronounced ridges in the shaft. Once I’m warmed up enough, he speeds up the thrusting and I kinda lose my mind for a while. Things become a bit of a blur and I can’t focus on anything else. It just feels fantastic, especially if a clitoral vibrator is added in. I have become shaky and watery-eyed many of times from this combination and it’s definitely my partners favourite toy to use back there.
Overall, the Tantus Curve is almost faultless to me. I mean, I’d prefer it attracted less lint, but that’s about it. I’m not sure what it is about the Curve, whether it’s the ridges, tapered tip or divine shape, but it seems to be my perfect dildo, no matter how I use it. It may not be the cheapest, small dildo around, but you get what you pay for and if you buy the Tantus Curve, you’ll be getting a high-quality toy that will last a lifetime with proper care.
