A little over a month ago I was sent the complete set of Tantus Little Secrets to review and showcase for all of you. To say I was excited, surprised, impressed and overjoyed is definitely an understatement!
Since my experience with Tantus products has always been a great one, I had very high expectations for each of these little wonders. Fortunately they’ve lived up the level of quality I’ve come to expect in every way possible and not surprisingly, the packaging, design, eco friendliness, ease of use and body safety are all fantastic!
*just a heads up, some of the the content has been taken from my previous review as the information regarding the packaging, level of quality, care and cleaning is the same. If you read the previous review, you can skip those parts and just read my take on Touch.
As with the majority of Tantus products the Little Secrets come respectfully, professionally, playfully and beautifully packaged in clear boxes that show them off the way they deserve. The only real difference from the ‘regular’ packaging is the adornment of pretty reflective silver, white and grey flowers that make the cases look ‘designer’ in nature and very high end.
*I absolutely love it and hope they keep it up with all the new lines they create!
There’s nothing on them that’s rude, unprofessional or embarrassing and with the exception of the word “toy”, there really isn’t anything to hint at what they’re designed for. You could definitely buy any of the Little Secrets and not have to worry about what someone would think should they come across them unexpectedly.
For those of you that don’t know, all of Tantus’ products are crafted out of Ultra Premium Silicone making them easy to care for and clean, extremely body safe (being both phthalate and latex free), waterproof, odorless, hypoallergenic, hygienic, non toxic and non porous. Basically put, they’re badass in every way possible!
*because they’re non porous they wont absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria.
Taking all of that into consideration, I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad word to say about anything they’ve made, and since they’re made from some of the best materials an intimate accessory manufacture can get their hands on, along with being anatomically targeted and tested, I just don’t think I could.
As for the specifics of the Little Secrets, I’m going to do a bunch of mini reviews, rather than one basic overall review, as I feel they’re each worthy of their own moment in the spotlight.
Touch measures 3.3″ in total length, 1″ in diameter and sports a flat tip that slightly resembles a chubby little thumb pad. While it was a tiny bit smaller than I expected (in length), I still think the design is a perfect length for clitoral stimulation, making access of the clitoris and maintaining contact with it exceptionally easy and comfortable.
In regard to color it’s an incredibly beautiful dark turquoise hue that’s much darker than most pictures will show, yet also has a slight opalescence to it. To say it’s stunning just doesn’t do it justice! As for the feeling, Touch has a lovely squishy tip that’s also rather flexible, allowing for quite a range of pressure and movement when held and during stimulation.
The strength is quite similar to Whisper, being neither too strong nor too weak. Having said that, if you like an exceptionally powerful vibration I don’t think either the Touch or Whisper would work for you while in their sleeve. In contrast, if you’re very sensitive or like something that’s a steady, mid range vibe this is just might be perfect.
*For those of you that like a strong vibe, keep in mind that you can easily remove the bullet from the sleeve and use it as is.
As for ways it could be used, I personally think it’s best as a clitoral stimulator, though teasing and taunting your partners erogenous zones is also nice. Because it has a flat tip insertion for vaginal use isn’t the easiest or most comfortable easy and I truthfully don’t know how much stimulation it would offer.
*The only thing I’d advise against is anal insertion as it doesn’t have a flared base and will possibly get lodged inside you.
Care & Cleaning
Since they’re made of Ultra Premium Silicone you can wash them with anti bacterial soap and water, boil them up to 600° Fahrenheit, bleach them with a 10% bleach solution, or simply put them in the top rack of your dishwasher…yes, I did say put them in the dishwasher. I also suggest you remove the sleeve from the bullet before any kind of cleaning. While the bullet is waterproof (another bonus!) I don’t think it would do too well being placed in boiling water, a dishwasher or bleach solution. Simply washing it with anti bacterial soap and water or spraying it with toy cleaner will do.
Keeping your Tantus products like new shouldn’t be too hard, just keep in mind you should only be using water based lubricants as a silicone lube will likely ruin them. If all you have is silicone and you really want to use it, I suggest you do a “patch test” first; place a tiny amount on the bottom of your silicone sleeve or the base of the product, if it becomes foggy, matte or looks like it’s melting don’t use it as it wont be compatible.
As for changing the batteries it’s very easy; just unscrew the bottom cap, remove your N battery, pop the new one in, screw the cap back on and you’re good to go! *I also suggest you remove the battery when the product is not in use as it could corrode and kill your bullet.
Final Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars
In regard to things I didn’t like there were a few, though I really don’t think they are that big of a deal and like many of my other reviews, I’m just nit picking.
1.) All of the products collect lint like you wouldn’t believe. If that’s something that bothers you there are a few easy solutions; you can store them in an air tight container to keep them away from dust and pet hair, wrap them in a link free cloth or store them in the case they came with. Problem solved!
2.) The biggest complaint I keep hearing from other reviewers is that they aren’t the strongest. Considering some people are very sensitive the Little Secrets are still very good, they’re just not on par with most hand held wands or other extremely powerful vibes. Try to keep in mind they’re not supposed to be – they’re bullets. On that note, I’ve always been able to achieve an orgasm using them…and I’m a devoted Fairy Wand/Hitachi girl, which should say something.
*For the record, I was actually very happy to see that they used one of the more powerful bullets on the market – the RO-80mm Chrome Bullet which I have included in previous posts because I’m such a fan.
3.) If you’re like me and want to keep the packaging you might not like how hard they are to get out of the containers they come in. I literally ripped the tops of the boxes off my Kiss, Tease and Spoon, while also breaking a nail in the process. I actually don’t fault the company for this as I’m known for having a hard time getting products out of their packaging, especially if they have lots of tabs etc.
Unlike my lack of excitement over the Little Secret Whisper (due to the basic design and color and not for a legitimate reason) I was actually rather impressed with Touch, especially because of it’s unique design, fantastic turquoise hue, flat tip (which offered a large surface area for stimulation) and the amount of control it offered.
On top of that Touch is exceptionally body safe, light weight, easy to use, odorless, water-proof, whisper quiet, wonderfully smooth and supple, doesn’t hurt, is very discreet and comes beautifully and respectfully packaged. Taking all of that into consideration, I think my dislikes are very superficial and shouldn’t really be taken to heart.
If you’re interested in any of the other products in the Little Secret line I suggest you head over to Tantus where shopping for body safe dildos, vibes, butt plugs and other badass finds is easy, affordable and your privacy is always respected!
