Tantus has a new-ish line of Little Secret vibes. The entire line is a combo of a bullet topped with a high quality silicone sleeve. There are five different designs and colours — all of which are so colorful and playful — so, of course, I want to collect’em all! To start me off, Tantus awesomely sent me the Spoon (the orange one!) for review.
The bullet is a chrome bullet — I will say right off the get-go that I love, love, love this bullet! This is a single-speed, no patterns kinda bullet, which is operated by a push-button located on the base. The cap is sealed by an o-ring making it waterproof and fully submersible. The pointed tip is amazing for pinpoint stimulation, the length makes it easier to hold onto, and the N-battery is more powerful than watch batteries. The N-battery actually puts out enough power that I can orgasm without a problem.
The bright electric orange sleeve is made of nothing but the best — 100% ultra-premium silicone. It is soft and plushy, with a glossy finish. There is a bit of a surface drag but, as always, lube will increase the pleasure. The sleeve fits snugly over the bullet and is a bit frustrating when trying to remove it for the first time. I found my myself tugging, pulling, wiggling, and twisting away at the little bugger. When I finally got it off, I added a dab of (water-based) lube into the sleeve before reinserting the bullet which allows it to easily slide in and out with no friction.
While the Spoon is advertised as a g-spotter, I find that it lacks in length for g-spotting purposes. It could maybe reach a very shallow g-spot, but I doubt it. The broad flat head is great at spreading the vibrations and stimulating a larger area, and if you are anything like me who requires a little bit of pressure on your clit, this is definitely worth snatching up. The Spoon also pairs up nicely with other Tantus dildos, such as the Alumina Flow.
In terms of power, the vibrations are decent with and without the sleeve. It’s definitely not a powerhouse but let’s face it — they’re bullets! While the bullet is pretty strong and will provide pinpoint stimulation if you remove the sleeve, the flat head of the sleeve causes the vibrations to be more diffused — something I initially thought would be a disappointment. Turns out, I love the vibrations! It is virtually silent and perfect for those who like to masturbate on the down-low.
As for cleaning; very simple. Since the sleeve is made of 100% silicone you can wash it with an antibacterial soap and warm water, bleach it with a 10% bleach solution, or plop it into a pot of boiling water. For the bullet, merely wash it with an antibacterial soap, or a toy cleaner and you are good to go. I recommend removing the sleeve before any kind of cleaning to ensure you get any gunk (eg. lube, juices) that may collect between the sleeve and the bullet.
Overall, I think the Little Secret Spoon is a wonderful little vibe. In most cases the expression “Great for beginners” is code for “This buzzy little bastard is too cheap and too weak to get me off”. But that is not the case with the Little Secret vibes — these little wonders are the ideal starter toy. Honestly. They are well-made, attractive, discreet, powerful, waterproof, light-weight, easy to use, and affordable…..and collectable! I’m a total colour slut and I now crave the entire rainbow!
