I love Tantus toys. Most of the toys I have from them, with a few noticeable exceptions like Hoss, are smooth and thin and typically they don’t vibrate. I’ve been enjoying some textures lately though, and I thought the Rascal O2 would be a good choice to try.
The Rascal comes in a simple plastic bag, and right away when I took it out I could tell it was going to be fun. It’s soft and super squishy – the kind of toy you want to squeeze like a stress ball. I love how flexible it is as well. The Rascal has gentle ridges that run from its rounded tip to its base for extra stimulation, and the surface has a matte finish with just a bit of drag. This toy has beautiful coloring, with a white tip that gradually darkens to an icy, frosted blue at the base.
This toy is on the short side – only 5 1/2″ long. It’s also 5 1/2” around (1 3/4″ diameter), so the Rascal is pleasantly filling without being too large. The base is wide at 3” in diameter and makes the Rascal O-ring compatible as well as safe for anal play.
The base contains a hole for a bullet to turn the Rascal into a vibrating delight. The bullet is silver and small, at 2 1/4″ long and just 3/4″ wide. It is easy to insert and remove from the Rascal without needing to apply any lubricant. The bullet only has one speed and is turned on and off by a push button on the bottom. It takes 3 watch batteries and produces strong, high, and buzzy vibrations that can be felt nicely throughout the length of the Rascal. The vibrations aren’t earth-shattering, but they are pleasant and create a nice buildup to climax over time. They are also fairly quiet, and won’t be heard if you’ve got some background music on. The bullet has an O-ring seal and is waterproof, so you can take the Rascal into the shower or tub for water play.
The Rascal is made of silicone, so it’s body safe, nonporous, hypoallergenic, and phthalates-free. It’s easy to clean: simply wash it (and the bullet) with antibacterial soap and rinse with warm water and pat dry. The Rascal without the bullet can also be run through the dishwasher on the top rack or boiled on the stove for 3 minutes. Its surface collects lint and hair like crazy, so the Rascal should be stored in a bag or box and cleaned before and after each use. Only water-based lubricants should be used.
So, Is It Worth It? Yes! I really love the way the Rascal feels. It’s filling without being too big, and the texture adds some decent stimulation. I love that this vibrates as well! The Rascal also works in the Liberator Wing for hands-free vibrating fun, although it would work better if it were just a touch longer.
The Rascal is fun to use without the bullet as well. Its bullet hole fits over the Tantus Suction Cup securely so it can be mounted on the shower wall. Because of its short length it doesn’t flop downwards off of the suction cup.
