I am reviewing these two together because they’re friends now. When nestled together in a toybox, dildos are known to form very close relationships with one another and I want to honor that.
Those are two dildos from Tantus’ O2 line, Mikey and Mark. (I had a really shitty boyfriend called Mikey once, so the fact that I can get past the name just shows you how awesome this toy is. I also briefly hooked up with a Mark. He was hot. Okay, digression over – back to the dildos!)
What makes the O2 toys really stand out is the dual density silicone. The O2 toys all have a firm core, covered by a softer outer layer. The combination feels amazing! They are firm enough to have some real heft and not flop all over the place, but they have some give to them when squeezed. When I got my first (Mikey, in the now discontinued black color) I spend quite a while just squeezing and stroking the shaft, enjoying the feel of it. Yes, that’s right, I gave a dildo a handjob. That is how much I love the feel of these!
Moving on to specifics, I’ll start with Mikey. It’s the shorter and thicker of the two, with 5.5″ of insertable length and 5.5″ around. For me personally, this is a really good girth. It’s “Oh, god that’s big and I am nice and stretched!” thick, as opposed to “Naw, seriously? You think that is going where? NOPE!” thick.* The length works well for me too: filling but never enough to bump my cervix. As much as I tend to be all about the big toys, there is seriously only so far you can go inside my vagina (or any vagina, really) until you run out of room.
Mark, on the other hand, is longer and thinner – from the base there’s 6” insertable length and about 5” around. The girth is at the Goldilocks point for me – just right for every day.
It’s like Mikey is all, “HEY! I AM INSIDE YOU!!!” while Mark is all, “Hey. I am inside you.” I know everyone is different, so anything I say about size is particular to my own personal holes. But for me, these really are two perfect sizes for different days. Some days I want more of an opened up and pushed feeling, and some days I am more for the nice and easy snug-but-not-stretched feeling.
Both these dildos have a flared base, so they can be used anally. Yay for flared bases! (If you use a toy both vaginally and anally, it is VERY IMPORTANT for it to be sterilized between holes. Silicone can be sterilized by being put in boiling water for 2 minutes, or cleaning with a 10% bleach solution. Or autoclaving.**)
The flared base also makes these a good fit for a harness.
I love both of these, and would be hard-pressed to choose a favorite. The quality is great, the design is great, and they both feel great to me. All-around winners in my toy box, these two.
*Of course, this is not a scientific measurement, since those points are different for everyone. Also, some things LOOK way too big but are not. Sometimes. Maybe. With enough lube.
**I am seriously curious about having an autoclave for my toys. Or possibly I am just having Kinky Mad Scientist fantasies. Or both. It could be both.
