The important dimension of the Feeldoe More is the bulb and the shaft. On the wearers end the bulb is what holds the Feeldoe in place, and measure 2.5” in length and 1.5” in diameter. On the other end the shaft measures at 8” of insertable length, quite a bit longer than 6.75” listed on most product pages. The only conceivable way to measure around 6.75” is by taking a straight line measurement from the tip to the base of the shaft, ignoring the prominent curve.
If these measurements are not to your liking Tantus offers the Feeldoe in 4 varying sizes of lengths and girths to fit any need. If you are looking for something more realistic Tantus offers a realistic counterpart to each of the sizes, known as the Realdoe. That being said we are a couple that have never been fans of realistic toys, and we love that Tantus gives an option for those varying preferences.
But when it comes to realism, I do find myself wishing that Feeldoe was a little less realistic. Besides the bright and glossy red color, the shaft of the Feeldoe More is very aligned with being anatomically similar, featuring a realistic shape to the head, prominent coronal ridge. Have a more realistic product line such as the Realdoe, I kind of wished they took the time to make the Feeldoe stand apart, with a less realistic shape. Tantus has some of our favorite toy designs such as the Purr, Cush, General, or Echo all have amazingly effective shapes without stepping to close to the realm of realism. A small complaint in the grand scheme of things.
Although the Feeldoe comes with a small bullet vibrator, and small spot to slide it into the base we found it to overall useless. The bullet was not strong enough to transfer any substantial vibrations to either the bulb nor the shaft. Replacing the bullet with something stronger such as the WeVibe Tango did not do much to help it either, but I don’t think our experience was in anyway worse due to lack of vibrations, the toy shines in many other ways.
The Feeldoe is not limited to partner use. When not used for pegging the Feeldoe makes for quite a wonderful handled dildo. The prominent ridge below the head and the firm silicone makes for wonderful prostate/G-spot stimulation, with no relatively little give to the material. For us the Tantus Feeldoe is used for pegging, and with that comes obstacles that aren’t quite as prominent when using it vagina to vagina. Many refer to products such as these to be “strapless strap ons” which may be a bit of a misnomer. While the Feeldoe can be used all on its own, unless you have superhero level PC muscles you will most likely need the support of a harness. When it comes to a harness we use the SpareParts Joque and we find the pairing to be perfect in our use.
When used for pegging, the Feeldoe is inserted into the harness with the bulb end coming through the back portion. The bulbous end is inserted vaginally as the harness is pulled up before tightening everything up. Once everything is seated correctly it is business as usual, the main difference being with every stroke the pressure is transferred to the internal portion, stroking the g-spot. Although I am not a huge fan of the realistic shape of the Feeldoe shaft, it is effective. The prominent ridge, is firm and perfect for stroking the prostate on each thrust.
The Tantus Feeldoe has made pegging an overall more stimulating experience for Harper, having those little sparks of pleasure gives feedback of how hard, fast, or deep you are going adds an entirely new element to strap-on sex. Although the internal bulb may not be enough to bring her to orgasm, it certainly makes harnessing up less of a one sided ordeal.
The 100% Ultra Premium Silicone used is nothing but the best quality. As with any silicone toy the options are plentiful when it comes to cleaning. Tantus suggests:
For a quick clean, use antibacterial soap with warm to hot water (Our preferred method), or use a toy cleaner (one without Triclosan!). For a more extensive clean, you can boil your product or soak in a 10% bleach solution. Let air dry, or clean with a lint free cloth.
