The Sherbet

A long, long time ago (February 2008 to be exact) I wrote my very first sex toy review! Hard to believe I’ve been reviewing them for so long. I’ve written  hundreds of reviews since (for sex toys, lingerie, and DVDs), but I thought it would be fun to revisit this, my very first. This review was originally posted on another site, with non-exclusive rights, and I’m reposting it here, with some picture additions.

The Sherbet dildo/vibrator has a lot going for it. It has light vibrations when used as a vibrator, and overall, it does its job well. The only problem is removing the vibrating bullet easily from the base.

The Sherbet dildo  by Tantus has a lot going for it. Being made of silicone, it doesn’t have that jelly smell to it that is so hard to get rid of. It is a pleasant light green color (just about the color of lime sherbet), which was not intimidating to my partner. At seven and a half inches long, it is a good length (seven inches insertable). It is just over an inch and a half in diameter, which was just the right thickness for me.The head has an interesting swirl texture. Initially, I found it not as comfortable as a smooth head, especially when inserting; although using plenty of lubricant, it felt fine. Once it was inserted, the swirls created a pleasant sensation.

The Sherbet is firm but not so rigid that it doesn’t flex with you. The base is flared, as you can also use this as a strap-on in a harness. It provided a good grip for thrusting, both by my partner and by me.

I was intrigued by the insertable bullet vibrator that came with it. It is powered by watch batteries, which are included. When the bullet is inserted into the base of the Sherbet and twisted, it provides pleasant vibrations, not too intense, spread evenly up and down the entire length of the shaft. It is not very noisy at all.

This was my first experience with a silicone vibrator, and it was very enjoyable. The only problem with the bullet is that it is not easy to remove. I thought it would just slide out, but instead, I had to get a pair of long-nosed pliers to remove it from sherbettipthe base. If you only intend to use this as a vibrator, this isn’t too much of a problem as you can unscrew the base of the bullet to replace the batteries, but if you want to alternate use as a dildo and vibrator, make sure you keep an extraction tool handy. The bullet removal and reinsertion may get easier over time, but it may take a while.  I also think it is better to remove the bullet before washing, so it does not become damaged.

Overall, the Sherbet dildo-vibrator is pleasant and effective, and I would definitely recommend it.

sherbetbaseAfter over 5 years, I still use this on occasion.  I gave up on using it as a vibrating toy, as the bullet was far too difficult to remove. The color is not as bright as it once was, but I like the shape and size of this, and it does attach well to my fucking machine as well as my heel harness.
Although Tantus no longer makes the Sherbet, they do make some wonderful toys, which you can check out by clicking the banner below.

Kink Of The Week: Dildos


From left to right: Eleven, Smooth S, Leisure, Fling, Dracula, Cyborg

I love dildos. I’ll admit that I have more vibrators, but there’s just something about dildos that I enjoy. It took me a while to get my first one, but now, for me, they’re like Lay’s potato chips – you can’t fuck just one.

The very first dildo I ever got, and which I still have, was the silicone Tantus Sherbet. It was also the first dildo I ever wrote a review for. Yes, it has a bullet hole, but it works just fine without vibration. Plus, it’s the most beautiful green.

I have a large assortment of silicone dildos, which include all sizes from small to large, the largest being Hoss. Some are beautifully colored – green, pink, black, orange, and blue – while others are flesh tones. Some are rather monstrous as well. Many of the brightly colored ones are realistic in shape, but some are not….and all of the flesh-colored ones are realistic. I do still have some non-silicone realistic dildos that I just can’t get rid of because of their size and how they feel. These are quite detailed, and are molded from real people…quite well endowed porn stars.

Several of the dildos I own have that bullet hole on the bottom, which works well on a suction cup attachment…and using a suction cup adds a whole new dimension for playing with them. Hole or not, they all work well on a fucking machine.

While I do love silicone, I also have a lot of dildos in other materials, including glass, metal, and wood. Most of my glass dildos are colorful, although a few are clear, and they tend to be smaller in girth than all the others. My metal dildos include the Eleven, which is by far the heaviest one I own. I only have two wooden ones: the Smooth S and the Fling, both from NobEssence, and they are two of my favorites. I particularly love the fling, which as a handle…and that comes in pretty handy.

Overall, I prefer grittier dildos and dildos with texture…unless they’re for anal use, where I prefer them thinner and smooth. I like curved ones, as they’re better to hit my g-spot, but straight ones can be quite filling and satisfying as well.

Dildos are great anytime: solo or with my partner, during kink play or regular sex. I don’t consider dildos inherently kinky, although when I’ve got two on the machine thrusting away into me and I’m bound, it probably crosses over that line. But as much as I love them, they’re really no substitute for a flesh and blood cock.

Play With Me

I’ve been a fan of Tantus toys for a while, particularly their plug and O2 lines, but there are quite a few I haven’t had the pleasure of trying yet. I was excited to receive the Pack ‘n Play No. 2 free from Tantus to review, in exchange for this unbiased review.

I’ve Got a Secret!

Some of my favorite toys are from Tantus – the Maverick, O2 Revolution, Leisure, and Infinity Plug come to mind right off.  I don’t have a lot of vibrating ones from them though, and in my continuing quest for discreet clitoral vibrators, I thought I’d give one of the new Tantus Little Secrets a try, so I requested the new Whisper from to review.

Use It At Your Leisure

I love Tantus products. The soft silicone and pleasant shapes and colors of their sex toys are wonderful. I particularly love their anal toys, so I was excited to get the Leisure from for review.

The Tantus Leisure comes in a see-through box with red and grey accents, with the Leisure and it’s accompanying bullet displayed through the front. Product information is on the back and sides of the box.

This toy is one of many Tantus green sex toys, meaning it’s eco-friendly, non-toxic and body safe, with no phthalates or PVC. It’s made of silicone, and is also hypoallergenic and completely odorless. It’s easy to clean with soap and water, and it can also be boiled, bleached, or run through the dishwasher. Since it’s silicone, only water-based lubricants are safe to use.

The Leisure comes in copper, purple, and white. I chose the copper, which I find to be an unusual color for a sex toy. It’s the color of a shiny penny, and it shimmers in the light. It’s simply gorgeous. This toy is wonderfully soft, just a bit squishy, and super flexible, so it’s comfortable no matter where you choose to insert it. It’s not tacky, but the surface has a bit of drag to it.

This toy is a pleasant 8” long (measured along the curve), with 7 1/4” insertable. It has a gently tapered tip and a diameter of 1 1/4″. The base is about 2 1/4″ in diameter, and large enough to use the Leisure successfully in a harness or slip it into the dildo holder in the Liberator Wing. Without the bullet, you can also use the Leisure with the Tantus Suction Cup, attaching it to your bathroom wall for hands-free play.

The Tantus Leisure comes with a small silver bullet vibrator, which takes 3 LR44 watch batteries (batteries are included). The bullet is removable, and it’s easy to push into the Leisure’s base as well as take it out, and sticks out about 1/2″ from the bottom when fully inserted. It has an O-ring at the bottom of the threads to make it safe for use in the shower or bath.

The bullet has only one speed, and can be turned on and off by pressing the button on the bottom. The vibrations are high speed and buzzy, and transmit throughout the Leisure, although they are strongest at the base. You can replace this bullet with a stronger one if you choose (5/8” in diameter), or use the Leisure without it.

So, Does It Work? Simply put, yes! While the Leisure can be used for vaginal stimulation, I used it almost exclusively for anal play. It’s softness and flexibility make it easy to insert, and the base is a good size for using in the Liberator Wing. It’s large enough to stay in place when inserted between the cover and the foam insert, and with the bullet extending down a bit into the pocket, there’s no worries about turning the vibrations on and off.

While I don’t think the vibrations are overly strong, I was able to feel them, and they were pleasant. The Leisure reminds me a lot of the Smooth Operator from Vixen Creations, both in size and material, but I like the base a lot better on the Leisure.

While we don’t have a standard harness, we do have a hand harness, and the Leisure fit in this well, although my husband had some trouble with the bullet bottom hitting his palm. We found it worked better without the bullet when used this way.

The Leisure also worked well when attached to the wall. Although it doesn’t vibrate this way, it’s still great to attach and move against.

If you’re looking for a thinner vaginal vibrator/dildo, or want a soft, flexible, and comfortable anal toy, the Leisure is a great choice. You’ll enjoy it for a long time to cum!
