Review: Tantus P-Spot

Posted May 23, 2014 by

The Tantus P-Spot is the first toy I’ve used in a long time that’s actually inspired me to write a review.  I bought this one myself*.  Normally, I save bought toys until last.  I have toys bought years ago that I still haven’t reviewed, like the Fun Factory Cobra Libre and VixSkin Mustang.  Both amazing toys, but I have so much sent to me and so little time to write that I have to prioritise.  But that’s all gone out the window here.  As soon as I used the P-Spot, I knew I had to put everything else down and write a review.

To provide a little background, my favourite prostate toy broke some time back (maybe 2 years ago?).  To make matters worse, it’s no longer manufactured.  I have tried long and hard to find a replacement.  To find a store that has one laying on a shelf somewhere, long forgotten.  But, alas, nothing has ever appeared and I’m still without my favourite Lovemoiselle Aveline.  Now, the Lovemoiselle Aveline is, well, was, a ceramic dildo.  At least, until it fell into my sink and smashed into a million pieces, that is.  But anyway, it was a curved ceramic toy that felt amazing.  The ceramic felt good, but it was the size of the end and the shape of the curve that made it just perfect for prostate massage.  When I had it, I never used anything else if I wanted to tease my prostate. Sure, other toys could hit it, but none like the Aveline.

P-Spot-1

So, for over a year, I’ve been without my beloved toy. Bereft of the kind of prostate stimulation I had become accustomed to, I was a little lost.  I tried many different toys, including the magnificent Njoy Pure Wand (another toy I bought myself that I still need to review…), but none have quite hit the (p) spot.  The Pure Wand is great, don’t misunderstand me, but the curve is a little too harsh for repetitive prostate massage.  It’s much better for slipping inside and holding in place, as opposed to moving back and forth over my prostate.  But I digress…

Now, I’m still looking for a replacement Aveline.  Indeed I won’t be truly happy until I have one.  But recently I have found, not a replacement, but a toy worthy of being placed upon the same shelf: The Tantus P-Spot.

I know what you’re thinking.  Comparing the Tantus P-Spot and the Lovemoiselle Aveline is a little like comparing apples and oranges.  The Aveline is ceramic and the P-Spot is silicone.  One is rock hard, the other soft and pliable.  But the size of the bulbous end on each and the curve of each toy are comparable, and they are the exact attributes I had been missing…until now.  Now I don’t know exactly why this particular curve works so well, but it does.  Without working out mathematically why it works for someone of my size and shape, I’m just happy that it does.  I’m sure the size of your prostate, the length of your arms, the distance your prostate is inside your rectum, all that stuff makes a difference.  But I’m pretty sure, if you like hitting your prostate, you’ll like the Tantus P-Spot.  The only reason I think you may not like it, is that it’s a little big.  For me, that’s a good thing.  I started off small, like everyone does, anally.  But now, I certainly prefer something a little larger.  Not massive, you understand, as too big doesn’t feel great either, but something an inch or so in diameter is about right for my prostate.

P-Spot-2

Now I wasn’t sure, in spite of ticking all the size and shape boxes, that the Tantus P-Spot would be as amazing as it is.  I was worried that the silicone would be a little too pliable, that when I wanted more pressure that it would bend, that it would squash against my prostate and not stimulate it the way I wanted.  But I was wrong.  Sure, with a lot of pressure it bends and it’s not quite the same as my previous favourite, but it still rocks.  To be honest, I feel like by speaking so much about other toys, I’m not giving the P-Spot the attention it deserves.  So let me be perfectly clear: The Tantus P-Spot is amazing!

Even if I still had my favourite, I would still want, and regularly use, this toy.  Sure, the silicone feels different from a harder material, but it feels great.  I actually quite like the fact that it has a little give when I press it hard, the silicone is amazing (like all Tantus toys) and it’s length gives me something to hold on to easily.

There’s also one big reason I’d use this toy more often than the Aveline: It won’t break! With this toy, I can grab it in the shower and not worry about it slipping out of my lubed up fingers and onto the hard, tiled floor.  If I ever buy another ceramic toy, I’m going to be a little nervous about dropping and breaking it in the sink. With stronger toys like my Njoy Pure Wand I’m worried about it breaking the sink…  With this one I can relax, safe in the knowledge that it won’t break anything and nothing will break it. Which actually means quite a  bit when you’re playing. If I’m distracted by a noise outside, or one of my cats or if I’m worried I’m going to have to explain why my bath is in five pieces then I can’t enjoy masturbating quite as much as if I were carefree, which I can be with this toy.

So hopefully I now have your attention and, if you’re thinking of buying an amazing prostate massager, you have this one in mind.  There are a couple of things you need to know, however.  Even if you’re no anal novice, there are a few things you need to keep in mind with prostate massage in particular.  Firstly, the prostate isn’t that far in.  Mine is about 2.5-3 inches or so inside.  I can reach it with my fingers easily, but I do have very big hands.  The Tantus P-Spot however, is much longer.  At 7.5” long, you’ll only ever need to use half of it at most.  Indeed, the shape of it would make it awkward to insert fully.  It’s too curved for me to insert all the way in.  But I don’t really want to.  This isn’t a thruster.  It’s not a toy for pumping in and out.  It’s one for slow, measured, teasing movements over the prostate over and over again.  It’s not a toy for feeling full or for going deep, nor should it be.

P-Spot-3

Now, would I make any changes to it?  Personally, I think a handle would be better than the flat base.  I’m sure the current base would work for strap on play (Although there are far better ‘thruster’ dildos out there) and obviously you can stand it on the floor or a chair before slipping it in, but I only ever use it in my hand.  Prostate massage is all about specific, deliberate movements.  It’s not something that’s particularly easy to do it by moving yourself with a stationary toy.  It’s far, far easier to move the toy inside you instead.

Other than adding a handle, which personally I’d do with all my dildos, the Tantus P-Spot is pretty much perfect**.  It hits my prostate every time with ease. I really can’t ask for anything more from it.  It has surpassed my expectations which, given the amount of toys I try, are particularly high.

Some toys you review because you were sent them and you made a promise.  Some toys inspire you to write.  They make you stop everything.  I have a bunch of toys to review, at the moment.  I have a backlog of items, sent to me by various sex toy stores and manufacturers.  Yet I’m writing about this toy. At work.  That says it all, really.

**Other than the name! I think the term ‘p-spot’ is a ridiculous name for the prostate.
