- Tantus O2 dual density silicone/Length: 6.5 inches Max. Circumference: 6 inches
Ahhhh, the Tantus Cush is a legendary beast of a cock. It became one of my must have toys when I started my blog, and being the jammy git I am, I managed to unexpectedly source one on a UK site (Ann Summers, no less – I know, right?!) and with the help of a rather generous money off voucher, snagged it at an amazing price. This was a good day.
I ordered and arranged to collect from my local store because I hate paying for shipping. I just so happened to be in town on the day I expected my order to arrive having just caught the train back from my partner’s flat. It was 10am and I knew the store would be open by now. I paced around town, constantly refreshing my phone waiting for the confirmation email that my order was ready. By 10:30am I was still waiting for the email but had ended up stood outside the store so thought “fuck it” and went in to ask anyway. The shop assistant took my details, went out back and returned with my order in a pink paper bag aaaaand OFF I WENT.
I had read sooo much about this dildo, the anticipation on the bus ride back home was almost too much. I don’t normally get this excited about a toy, but I just knew that the Cush and I were destined for greatness. And man, was I right!
My Cush arrived in Tantus’ old packaging (the clear plastic box and clamshell combo) which is perfectly tasteful and fun but not remotely discreet as it displays your toy for all to see from all angles. It’s also really awkward to use for storage anyway, so I store my Cush in a Lovehoney bag to protect it from the hair, dust and fuzz that it attracts like a mo’ fo’.
I think it’s a great looking toy – even if it does remind me a little bit of a porpoise (I’m probably on my own with that one, ha!). The quality of the silicone is excellent, but you’d never expect anything less from Tantus. My Cush does have a tiny air bubble just below the surface of the silicone on the base (visible in the above photo), but its shaft is flawless.
The first thing to really say about the Cush is it is rather on the large side, particularly in girth. It has a good 6 inches around the head which is definitely something to bear in mind. When I first became acquainted with the Cush I hadn’t experienced another toy of similar dimensions, but my partner’s penis is pretty girthy (can’t quite get my hand around it on a good day!) so I wasn’t too fazed. The Cush has quite a pointed tip and is made out of Tantus’ O2 dual density silicone, so it has an outer layer that is über squishy (not as squishy as VixSkin by a long shot but far squishier than Tantus’ regular silicone) over a more rigid inner core, which makes it easier to ‘take’ that girth. It definitely requires a fair bit of lube due to both its size and slight tackiness. The first time I used it, which was very shortly after arriving home with it and giving it a good wash, it just slid right in with no proper warm up (guess that shows how excited I was about it, huh?!) and it was glorious.
The thing I love the most about the Cush is how filling it is. It just hits all the right places, particularly along the front wall of my vagina and my G-spot has no where to hide. This is one of the few dildos I can make myself orgasm with without a hint of clitoral stimulation, plus it is also a wonderful thing to ‘hold onto’ while playing with a good clit vibe. I find having the Cush there heightens and then prolongs my orgasm and when seriously aroused I can even squirt with it.
Many reviewers hark on about that lower ridge and how it either makes or breaks the toy for them. Well, I have a confession… I don’t think I can feel it! I checked and I definitely can insert past that point, but nope. I just don’t get any stimulation from it. I’ll admit I was a little disappointed as my vag is usually pretty good at distinguishing texture (hell, it can feel my partner’s foreskin!) but so far the ridge has gone undetected. Oh well.
As with all of Tantus’ silicone products, the Cush can be cleaned with a bit of antibacterial soap and water or sterilised by bleaching or boiling.
The Cush is still one of my all time favourite toys, only beaten in the silicone dildo category by my VixSkin Buck which wins for its curve and even squishier silicone. The Cush is great if you already know you’re into girth as it is unlikely to disappoint there, but I’d also consider it a good ‘gateway’ dildo for those wanting to try something on the larger side as its comparatively forgiving compared to toys of a similar size but firmer material. Obviously if you prefer your dildos on the slim/average side of things, then the Cush is one to avoid (perhaps check out the Tantus Flurry O2 instead).
Overall this is a fantastic dildo that both gives and enhances incredible orgasms. The Cush is my favourite Tantus product but any toy box will benefit from one of their toys!
