Despite my love for all things blue and green, it’s not often that I get to review sex toys in those colours, which is such a shame. Enter the Slow Drive from Tantus; a dildo in a green so shiny and lime-y that it makes me want to sob with joy. It features an angled hook- type tip, shaped that way to reach and stimulate the g-spot.
Tantus Slow Drive is part of a limited colour collection of dildos. Tantus released them earlier this year, and I almost jizzed over the teal and lime colour options. The silver is also beautiful, but I’m a massive fan of greens and blues so obviously those appealed to me the most. The line also included the Slow Drive Long, Sport and Sport Long, as well as the Warm Up. Unfortunately, those incredible colours are no longer available, but you can still snag yourself up those dildos in black, purple and silver.
I had high hopes for the Slow Drive, especially after hearing nothing but great things about it. But this thing is so plain. And so smooth. Very small, smaller than I expected. Maybe even boring. What on earth possessed me to buy it in the first place? Me, a fan of texture and detail. The colour. I’m not ashamed to admit it, I’m so shallow when it comes to sex toys and their appearance.
The Slow Drive features a redesigned teardrop base which is supposed to be even more comfortable when worn in a harness. I am so confused by this, because it seems like it’s the wrong way round. I thought you’d want the triangle pointing in between your legs but then the curve faces downwards if you wear it that way. If you’re going at it in a missionary position, it’s not going to be comfortable for the person wearing the harness. The only way this base will work, is if you’re having sex from behind. The whole point of the curve is to reach the G-spot or P-spot so that would defeat the object, but I’m not planning on using this in a harness so it doesn’t bother me that much.
This dildo is terrible if you want intense thrusting. It’s firm but still very flexible, so that it bends back on itself when I desperately need it to stay still and just push up against my g-spot, damn it. It is also very short, measuring 5 inches – but it definitely feels like way less than 5 because of the pronounced curve. All those things combined make it impossible to angle it correctly. I guess it would be good for people with shallow vaginas who know that their g-spot is located fairly low down. I’m still in the process of exploring that part & learning as much as possible about what works and doesn’t work for me, and this dildo simply doesn’t do it.
It just doesn’t work for me at all, and no amount of warm up and coercing my g-spot into joining in the fun seems to work. There is nothing remarkable about it, I think it’s the marmite of dildos and it will either work and you’ll love it, or it won’t and you’ll hate it. Maybe the longer version of this dildo would work for me better; it would certainly give more room for maneuver, and the short length was one of the main issues I had with this dildo.
As always, the Slow Drive is made using Tantus’ 100% ultra premium silicone – and I have nothing bad to say about the quality of this, or any other Tantus sex toys. It’s the shape and size that didn’t work for me in this case.
I’m very disappointed with this dildo. I guess it’s my own fault for getting so excited over the limited edition colours and overlooking the most important part – how the dildo might feel during use. If simple works for you, you might love it!
The Slow Drive is available directly from Tantus.
