The Tantus silk was kindly sent by Tantus Inc. in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. We decided to review the Silk small for a multitude of reasons. One being Harper has never been a fan of penetration with larger toys, another being is she is still beginner when it comes to anal. Taking these into consideration we figured the Tantus Silk would be a perfect toy to aid in those areas.

The Silk small is as described, small. To be honest, it was smaller than expected. A little over 4” in usable length and a diameter that is a hair above ¾” of an inch, the Silk is about the size of an average middle finger. For some that may be the perfect starter toy. Whether used anally or vaginally, it eases the transition from manual stimulation with your hand to the wonderful world of toys. If you think the Silk small is too small, Tantus currently offers the Silk three size (Small, Medium, Large) which are .8″, 1.1″, and 1.5″ in diameter respectively. The non-textured shape and lack of a bulbous head would make these ideal as dilators, or beginner toys as even the medium fits well in line with a beginner size toy. The Silk is currently offered in three colors Purple Haze, Pink Pearl, and Black. The Silk is often found as a grab bag option in various sizes, and although you do not pick the color you are guaranteed to get a quality toy for a bargain price.
Harper does not enjoy that stretch feeling that some seek out when using toys, thus when offered the chance for a cute and tiny toy she was more than happy to finally try something that wasn’t a struggle to fit such as the General, Astral, or Cush. So far her favorite use has been coupling it with our Original Magic Wand. It is enough for internal sensation but not sizeable enough to cause discomfort. To us the Silk small is most relatable to finger penetration without the downsides such as sharp nails.
When it comes to anal use the Silk small is a perfect first step when it comes to warming up. The lack of a bulbous head and narrow diameter makes for the easiest insertion of all the toys we own. It unintimidating size and textureless shape has helped explore other exciting realms such as using a toy during intercourse for duel penetration, an activity that hasn’t worked with other toys of larger sizes.
All in all despite its small size, the Tantus silk small has opened a large amount of possibilities in the bedroom as we work on exploring new and exciting activities.
