This toy is admittedly an odd choice for a male; duel stimulation toys like this one aren’t marketed as men’s toy. However, many sources have said that duel stimulation toys can work well on a male with the main shaft providing anal penetration and possible prostate simulation while the clitoral stimulator becoming a perineum stimulator. Normally I wouldn’t have picked a bullet powered vibe like this to test this hypotheses but I happened to find one at a closeout price of 12.00 dollars(1) (Tantus goofed and made a few in the wrong color, pink) and decided to take it for a spin. After all the symbol delta can denote change so maybe, I’ll luck out. How did it work out? Read ahead to find out.
Materials: Cleaning and Safety Concerns
Like all Tantus vibrators, this toy is made of 100% pure silicone making it safe, durable, hypoallergenic, and free of latex or phthalates. The toy is easily cleaned using hot soapy water or a toy cleaner. If you want to completely sterilize the toy, a must if you’re going to be sharing it with someone you may do so by: boiling the toy; cleaning it in a 10% bleach solution; or putting it in your dishwasher on the top shelf of your dishwasher without any detergent. (You could also use a an autoclave, most users won’t have an autoclave at their disposable, but who knows may the Greek letters will attract the lab scientists to this toy line .) You shouldn’t use a silicone lube with a silicone toy as it could damage the toy; stick to water based lubes.
Design and Dimensions
This vibrator is a dual stimulation vibrator designed for simultaneous vaginal G-spotting and clitoral but which we will us as an anal/perineum stimulator with the following dimensions:
- Diameter: .75”
- Total length: 5.25”
- Insertable length: 3”
The clitoral stimulator sticks out about an inch from the main shaft of the toy.
The base is a little more than 3” across and designed with a textured thumb grip, which makes for easier manipulation.
The toy is available in a Pearl Pink and Purple. You might also see this toy referred to as the “Elements Delta” the “Elements” line consisting of this vibrator, the Elements Omega, the Elements Pi and the Elements Theta.
This vibrator is powered by an included replaceable bullet vibe that fits in to the base. Make sure you put a bit of lube in there before inserting the bullet otherwise you are going to have a very rough time pulling it out again. The included bullet vibe is your run of the mill one speed bullet powered by three AG13(2) size watch batteries, also included. You can also use the bullet by it by itself for external stimulation, if you wish. The hole in the bottom of the toy also makes it compatible with the Tantus suction cup accessory, I don’t own one so I can’t comment on how will it works with it however. The vibrations are a light buzz and the toy is quite enough you would be able to hear it under a sheet but not through a closed door.
On the topic of the bullet vibe, I’ll be honesty I’ve never been a big fan of the little bullet vibes used in these things. I’ve always found them to be a little finicky to use i.e. sometimes you press the button and it won’t turn on, sometimes you have to press it down. Opening it up and repositioning the batteries usually solves this problem but it is annoying none-the-less. However, there are clear advantages to this bullet in the base system. The first is that if the bullet dies just get a new one, no need to buy a completely new vibrator. The second is that if you have a third part bullet that can fit in to the base instead of the included one you can improve on the power and add more functionality (i.e. vibrating patterns etc) and is what I recommend using. Lastly, if the bullet you use with the toy is waterproof (as the included vibe is) the toy as a whole would then be waterproof as well.
Pleasure and Use
This toy unfortunately didn’t work for me as a repurposed male sex toy and likely won’t work well for many women for the same reasons it didn’t on me. The first is that at a measly .75 inches in diameter this is one of the slimmest toys I own. The average butthole (or vagina) is not going to feel much from the girth of this toy. The second is the toy is too soft and flexible; prostate (or G-spot) stimulation usually requires a little pressure and this toy is just too soft and flexible for the job. Lastly, the vibrations from the included vibe are too weak especially on the clit/repurposed perineum stimulator (the vibrations are stronger along the penetrating finger). After much manipulation to try to get some pressure out of the soft little finger, and using a third party vibe to get some more juice I was to get a light but pleasurable buzz on my perineum and enough stimulation internally to able to orgasm but it took a lot of work and there are clearly better choices out there.
On the plus side, the look of the toy is unique and extremely appealing to me. The groves on the base also work well for maneuvering and manipulation. The base also makes it harness compatible although with its short length I don’t see how will it could work. The flexibility of the toy, although a con overall does make the little clit/ perineum stimulator easy to position on the perineum. Lastly, although failing as a duel stimulation toy it did work well for me as an external teaser/massager/pinpoint vibrator, using the small finger to hit the desired spots.
Who is it for?
Given it is very thin design and its weak vibrations, the people I could see enjoying this are the inexperienced, the very sensitive or those that like thinner more finger-like toys. Although, if you have a third-party vibe you can boost the power of the vibrations, so keep that in mind.
I can’t comment on the retail packaging as I purchased it from Tantus direct and it thus came in their non-retail bag packaging. Most Tantus toys come in a simple plastic packaging and I don’t believe this one is any different. This like all Tantus vibrators come with the batteries, the three watch batteries, included. Note: the batteries will come inside of the bullet vibe. There is a plastic spacer used for shipping in the battery compartment that you have to remove after that you’re ready to go.
The toy is well made, body safe and has a interesting appearances however a shaft that too soft and flexible coupled with weak vibrations, means the toy fails me, for both prostate and perineum stimulation (and again will like fail many for G-spot and clitoral stimulation). However, the slightly tingle I go on my perineum and the eventual orgasm I had has provided proof of concept(3) for me and I still hope to try more duel stimulation toys in the future.
