Fun Fact: Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust — It makes up 8 percent of the weight of the earth’s solid surface. It is recyclable and safe.
I have been coveting a toy from the Tantus Alumina line for what seems like forever now. Unlike other Tantus toys, this series of dildos is made of aeronautic grade aluminum. The aluminum is anodized, which not only adds to the sheer beauty of these toys, but also strengthens corrosion and wear resistance. Each Alumina product is cast in two fully functional halves — which means that the ends of ALL FOUR Alumina products can be swapped out for other pieces to make your perfect toy. This is a very unique design and — of course — means I covet all four Alumina toys.
The Flow came to me in a slender black cardboard box with silver writing and a silver outline of the dildo’s shape on the lid. It is sturdy, elegant, discreet, and no bigger than it has to be making it perfect for storage. Inside, the toy itself is nestled in black foam and a slim instruction care booklet. Simple, but with a touch of class.
The Aluminum definitely has some heft to it. It feels very sturdy in hand and unlike the majority of toys on the market, can last a lifetime with minimal care. There is no texture at all to this dildo — it’s completely smooth. It is cool to the touch and even at room temperature it feels cold. The surface is flawless and has a sheen to it that is absolutely amazing. Also, the aluminum is a deep purple color that is very pleasing to the eye.
As for measurements, the Flow is 9¼” long in which about 4″ are insertable from either end. The dildo somewhat replicates a bowling pin While the thin end is 7/8″ in diameter and the thicker end is 1½” in diameter. Even with the drastic change of size, the weight seems to be distributed almost evenly and surprisingly doesn’t tire out my wrist while using it for longer periods of time. However, the best feature of the Alumina line is their interchangeability. Since I don’t have any other Alumina toys I couldn’t make my own combination, but the Flow is very easy to screw apart and back together — even for a weakling like myself who has difficulty opening the pickle jar. The dildo’s a breeze to clean and can be simply washed down with some antibacterial soap. It can also be sterilized by placing it on the top rack of the dishwasher (top rack, no soap). I did notice that gunk tends to collect in between the rubber ring and where the two pieces join together so it should be taken apart to assure a thorough cleaning. Other than that, nothing to it!
Now on to the Nitty Gritty…
I first tried using the Flow at room temperature and it does feel cool when you first begin to use it. The aluminum rapidly warms to your body though, almost heating as you thrust with it, and not just the end that’s inserted — you can feel the heat down the whole length of the toy! It feels different from any of the other materials I’ve ever used.
I then ran it under warm water. I let it sit for about 5-10 minutes while I aroused myself clitorally. When I came back to the Flow, I was amazed that the dildo was still warm and how it had amazingly kept the heat. I inserted it and gasped at the sensation as the most amazing sensation went through my entire body. As for the best word to describe it — sensational! The thin end I could take it or leave it — it doesn’t do much for me. I adore it as a handle. The larger end fills me up nicely. Also? This thing is amazing at g-spotting! Even though it’s not curved, but with its firm and thick shaft along with rapid thrusting it seems to happen spontaneously. Clenching around it while also stimulating my clitoris is oh so heavenly. So firm!
It inserts and thrusts smoothly, and the heft is perfect. The fact that the Alumina line is interchangeable takes the cake. For someone who has always been primarily a clit-girl I am extremely impressed by the Alumina Flow — I keep coming back to it again and again. It’s definitely a pretty interesting addition to my toy collection! Using this dildo makes me feel incredibly sexy!
