Tantus Goddess Handle Review

3. a greatly admired or adored woman:
a domestic goddess who hosts lavish dinner parties.
The dildo Gods did good when they decided to give a dildo a nice long handle, it’s a genius idea. I’m sure it’s been done before, but not enough in my opinion. A super silicone dildo. A super silicone dildo with a fucking handle, yes, yes, YES!
When Tantus put a long handle on their regular Goddess dildo, they must have agonised for hours over what to call it. In a stroke of genius, they called it the Goddess Handle! She’s lean and she’s beautiful, and she’s ready for me to get a grip and get down to the business of fucking myself – with ease. See the key word there? EASE! Who says size doesn’t matter? Because in this instance, it really does. That bit of extra length is going to give you more to hold on to, less need for awkward contortion by you (beautiful curvaceous ladies of the world rejoice!) and probably a couple more position options in your dildo-fucking armoury.
My Goddess is a grab bag edition. I think I’ve mentioned, once or twice, that I love grab bags. They’re what happens when Tantus have some of their awesome 100% platinum silicone left over from making gorgeous dongs, and they mix the colours or blends together, to create something that’s totally unique. This is a rich dark purple shade, and it’s lovely. The handle is matte silicone, which gives you more grip when you’re slipped up to your armpits in water-based lube, and the main body of the dildo is a gloss finish. One thing that does annoy me about this particular one is, it never looks clean! It can be clean enough to eat your dinner off, but it still looks smudgy. I’m pretty sure that’s just the silicone blend of this grab bag though, and since I don’t share my toys (I’m an only child), it doesn’t really bother me too much.
If the Goddess was a real woman, she’d be a yoga enthusiast, because she’s pretty bendy and flexible! I think I’d have preferred a little bit more back-bone personally, but that’s because I can get a bit too over enthusiastic when I’m thrusting, and a bit more rigidity would come in useful. Despite the flex this has, the silicone is still actually pretty firm, so if you’re a fan of dual-density, this might not be for you, because it’s much harder, with no squish to it. You’ve got about 6.5 inches of insertable length, and about 1.5 inches in diameter, which is a very achievable size for most. The handle adds just over 4 inches to the length, and has a lovely grip, so it’s comfortable to hold and use. I can go in cold with this dildo, and have no problems inserting it at all, with a nice dollop of water based lube. I kind of like this about the Goddess, but I also kind of hate it too. It’s good to be able to pick this up and get going straight away, but I love the longer handle so much, I want to carry on using it, but inevitably my body starts to crave more girth. So I’m torn, and I’m getting splinters in my ass from sitting on the fence.
The texture of the Goddess Handle is fairly subtle. Again, it’s fantastic as a warm up toy, but I generally like more extreme textures, and so because it’s on the slimmer side, some extra texture would’ve sweetened the deal for me. If you’re not a lover of bumps and ridges though, you’d probably get on well with the Goddess, she’s a smooth operator.
When this is in my hand, I either come over all Harry Potter, or I end up swirling it around like a kids whirly tube. It’s a very tactile toy, and CK likes to wield it around like a powerful weapon too. He enjoys being able to thrust into me with it, without having to be so close to the action. I don’t mean that in a bad way either, but the extra length means he can be thrusting, and concentrating on other areas of my body at the same time, giving him more pleasure giving options. When I’m riding solo, the length makes it more comfortable for me to use, although I do find, the flex in it means I’m naturally pulling the dildo away from the bit of G-Spot stimulation I can get with it. Realistically though, the shape of this means it’s never going to be a full on G-Spot worshipper, so it’s not a huge loss. I like that I can bend over on all fours and still thrust with this dildo, something I’d stand no chance of doing with a regular, handle-less option.
This dildo is ridiculously easy to clean, because it’s Tantus quality. Boil it, bleach it, run it through the dishwasher or wash it by hand with soap and water, whatever you find works best for you. It’s a Goddess that’s low maintenance, who’d have thought it?
I like it. I’m not worshipping at its metaphorical feet, but it’s a really great dildo and it gives me lots of pleasure. I’m looking forward to meeting the other long handled dildos in the range, and seeing if I can get my fill from any of them. If you prefer more modest dildos, with subtle textures and think you’d benefit from that extra length, I think you’re onto a winner with the Tantus Goddess Handle!
Tantus are amazing. If you’ve not checked them out yet, what are you waiting for? They very generously sent me the Goddess Handle for free, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This in no way alters my thoughts or experiences. If you’d like to purchase a Goddess Handle, you can do so here. Grab bags are always with a look too! Affiliate links have been used in this post.
