Today was an exciting day because I’ve finally received my Tantus dildo in the mail. It is actually the first realistic dildo that the guys at Tantus have made. Its name is ALAN and it’s a multi-purpose dual density dildo that features a removable suction cup and bullet vibrator. I’ve ordered my Alan in ‘Mocha’ color; however, it is also available in cocoa and cream colors. It is a fairly small Tantus toy, but I am still incredibly excited to test it out. So has it met my high expectations? Did Alan blow my mind? Let’s find out!

First Impression

I love how Tantus packages its products. The boxes are always colorful, fun, and pleasant to the eye. Similarly to other Tantus toys, the Alan comes in a clear plastic box that allows you to look at the toy and marvel at its beauty before even opening the box.

This dildo has 6.5” of insertable length and is 4.75” in circumference, making it very realistic in terms of the size of an average man.

The top four inches of this Tantus P-spot massager have two layers of different density which I simply adore. The last 2.5 inches of Alan have a hollow cavity that can hold a bullet vibrator or a suction cup. Because of this, the bottom part of the dildo is very soft. The surface of this toy very closely replicated the real skin and has veins and pores as well as various wrinkles and folds near the tip. The Alan has a flared base which makes it safe for anal use. Also it can be used as a strap-on toy by connecting it to a harness.

In Use

The Alan is a bit smaller than what I’m used to so I had no problem just diving straight in. For the first use, I decided to use it with a bullet vibrator. Unfortunately, a bullet vibrator is simply not enough to provide an intense feeling, especially with all that silicone dampening the vibrations.

However, in order to make a thorough review on this toy, I decided to give all options a try. So once I was ready, I grabbed some of my favorite lube, spread it over the whole shaft and began sliding it in. The narrow width allowed it to slide in with little to no resistance. Even though I expected this, I was sort of disappointed at this point. Due to its small size and squishy texture, I couldn’t really feel anything at all.

I wouldn’t say that I stretch myself too much during anal play, so it’s really not my fault that I felt that way. Nevertheless, I continued with the experience using the flared base as a very convenient grip that allowed me to forcefully thrust it in. Due to the fact that the toy’s tip was so soft, I had to thrust is in pretty hard to properly milk my prostate. However, after I found the right spot, it actually felt really good pushing the toy hard against it. At that point, I thought that it was time to step it up a notch and turned on the bullet vibrator. As it came to life, I felt an enjoyable tingle in my sphincter. However, that was pretty much it, and for someone who loves their toys to be powerful, this toy couldn’t meet the standards that I’m used to. So I decided to get my We-Vibe Tango.

In pretty much any toy that is powered by a bullet vibrator, I end up switching the original vibrator with the Tango. For Alan it proved to be a perfect match.

Even on the lowest setting, the Tango was already providing me with stronger vibrations than the ones created by the original bullet, which meant that on the higher settings it was going to be awesome. And I was right. It was really-really good. The vibrations of the Tango were so powerful that I could feel the entire shaft and in combinations with some good thrusts, I was finally starting to really enjoy the experience.

If you ever feel like it, you can also ride Alan without using your hands. To do this, just replace the vibrator with the Tantus suction cap and attach it to the floor or the bottom of your bath tub and enjoy.

However, my most pleasurable sessions with the Alan were when I inserted the Tango into it. Every time I used this toy in such a way, I ended up having a powerful orgasm. The only complaint that I have about this toy is that it isn’t thick enough for my liking. Not too much, but about 5 inches in circumference would be perfect.

Clean-Up and Maintenance

Just like all the other dildos made by Tantus, you can wash the Alan by placing it in the dishwasher or by boiling it. Just make sure that you remove the vibrator bullet before doing so. Otherwise, just use some water and an anti-bacterial toy cleaner. The Tantus silicone can create lots of friction, which also means that hair and dust will settle on it. Thus, I recommend rinsing this toy before each use.

Summary

This toy is great for those people who like using realistic dildos that are a bit smaller than average in circumference. This toy can be used with a bullet vibrator or a suction cup to enjoy a hands-free ride. Just keep in mind that the bullet vibrator that comes with this toy is not very powerful.

Even though this toy was too slim for my taste, I would still gladly use it as a warm up toy. The quality of the Alan is top notch and all the wrinkles and pores definitely add a nice touch.
