I purchased the Tantus Slow Drive several months back when I was looking for a small, angled dildo for g-spot stimulation and it fit the bill perfectly. It still does in fact. I have since become acquainted with a couple of other similar toys from the same brand, namely the Warm Up and Sport, but this one is still the definite favourite. If you’re looking for a first-time g-spot toy or just a fun, slimline dildo to experiment with, why not give this one a try?
The Slow Drive is made from Tantus’s unique formula of ultra-premium silicone. This formula is completely body-safe and free from latex and phthalates. It’s compatible with water-based lubricants, but I have used Sliquid Silk on occasion, after this proved to be safe following a patch test on the base. Silicone is an eco-friendly, non-toxic, hypoallergenic material and can be bleached, boiled or run through the top rack of the dishwasher for a thorough clean. I usually stick to soap and water for everyday cleaning, but follow through with a direct sanitize once a month, depending on how much it has had. If you’re using this toy anally and switching between orifices or partners, then I would recommend doing it more regularly than that.
I would class this as a beginner friendly toy as it’s slimline and fairly short as far as dildos go. It has five inches of insertable length, which might not sound like much, but it’s enough to target the g-spot, which is what this toy was made for. If you’d like a couple of extra inches of length but the same shape to remain the same, then you’re in luck. Tantus also made a long version to suit those needs. The regular Slow Drive has four inches of girth around the widest point, which should be manageable and comfortable for most. If you suffer from something like vaginismus and this is too big, then the Compact might be more suitable.
It has a minor amount of flexibility, which is just about right for this particular toy. I don’t like g-spot toys to be too bendy or it can make insertion and finding the right spots difficult. It has enough flex that I can bend it slightly forwards or backwards to get the perfect placement but it won’t move without assistance. I can forcefully manipulate it into touching the base if I want, but it’s a bit of a push. I think it’s firmer than its smaller sibling the Warm Up as it has barely any squish to it and has a solid core. This is great news for my g-spot, which is a bit of a slut for hard, tough pressure.
You know the “come hither” motion that’s often top of the list in fingering guides? The Slow Drive has exactly that curved shape to its head and seems to have the same effect on the g-spot when thrusted in and out at a fast pace. It doesn’t pound the spot like something thicker or heavier would, but it does sort of tug on it, in all the right ways. It’s not the uncomfortable stuck-on-the-pubic-bone tugging, it’s more of a I’m just going to push and pull this spot until I make you orgasm kind of tug.
I think the Slow Drive is underrated and possibly overlooked on a regular basis, as those acquainted with their g-spot might think this is one just for the beginners, but I believe the opposite. I think there are so many people who could enjoy the benefits of this toy. I was thinking that I’d outgrow this within a few months, but it’s one of my favourite silicone dildos to use when I want g-spot stimulation. I find the stimulation consistent and reliable with it almost always giving me gratification. I haven’t ejaculated with it, but the orgasms I do get are pretty great so I’m not complaining.
I have opted to use this for vaginal play only, but it’s totally safe for anal play if that’s how you want to use it. It features a teardrop base which is really comfortable to hold or easy to place in a harness, providing you have a suitably sized o-ring. My partner does not engage in prostate play at this time, but if he were to be interested one day then I think we’d start with something like the Compact or Warm Up then come to this one. I think that the firmness could be too much for a complete anal novice.
