Review: Tantus Mark O2 Dildo

There are dildos and then there are Tantus dildos. Tantus makes product in a class of their own and I never hesitate to recommend products they make. From dildos to anal plugs to dildos that double as vibrators to cock rings, they make it all and make it well.

The Tantus Mark dildo sold through Babeland is a relatively new addition to the Tantus line up and boy, am I glad they created it. While realistic dildos and even semi-realistic dildos aren’t everybody’s cup of tea, they have recently become an interest of mine. I have purple dildos, blue dildos, black and white dildos, and seemingly every color under the sun except skin colored dildos. Okay, okay. I admit, I wasn’t really ever a realistic dildo fan. If I wanted something penis-like, I’d just find a penis. See how warped my mind was?

Mark is made from Tantus’s special 100% medical-grade silicone called O2. This is my first foray into the O2 material and so far I am loving it. What’s so special about it is that the inner core of the dildo is firm, but still flexible. The outer skin is squishy and relatively lifelike. It bends however you need it to bend, and Mark has a slight curve to it anyways. Mark’s cousin Adam has a much more severe bend to it, likely intended to precisely stimulate g-spot areas. Mark does a pretty dang good job at hitting g-spots as it is so I’m not sure the severe bend of Adam is always necessary.

Mark’s head is squishy and I can say I’ve spent long periods of time just sitting pressing my fingers into the head of this dildo. It feels like the firmer inner core doesn’t extend all the way to the tip of Mark, much like in a real penis. The shaft of the dildo has a slight penis-like texture, with veins and ripples. You don’t necessarily feel it inside of you I think, but I appreciate the texture. It makes it feel more like that mythical penis thing (of which I haven’t partaken of in awhile) and less like a piece of silicone. The shaft has an almost matte finish while the head has a shiny finish and is sculpted to look like a real (though not defined) penis head, even down to the urethra slit at the tip. Watch out for that little slit cause lube and other materials can collect in it if you’re not very diligent about cleaning.

The base of this dildo is something I’m quite fond of. Tantus has recently redone how they pour their dildos I think and it’s lead to a much firmer base than shaft. The absolute bottom of this dildo is almost rock solid. This makes it easy to stand vertical on a flat surface, but since it’s not concave in any way there’s little to no suction.

Mark works perfectly in most any strap-on harness if you’re looking to this dildo has a strap-on compatible dildo. I would suggest a metal cock ring be used with it instead of rubber just to be on the safe side with materials. 100% medical grade silicone will not melt or deform, but I’m always wary of mixing my materials after having invested as much money in these items as I have. As opposed to my VixSkin Johnny from Vixen Creations that has realistic balls, the Tantus Mark has no balls and thus is compatible with most any strap-on harness out there. You don’t need to worry about containing the balls or having to hook the harness around them.

Like most any other realistic or semi-realistic feeling silicone dildo on the market, Mark is a lint magnet. Oh man is he. Just sitting in my drawer for a week it has collected little lint and dust particles all over it. You can solve this by storing this dildo in the plastic clamshell packaging it comes in or in a plastic bag. That being said, I highly recommend washing it before use, as I would any other toy, to ensure that you’re using a clean, lint-free toy for your sexy times.

I know I’ve mentioned how much I like 100% medical grade silicone toys before for their easy sterilization and cleaning, but it bears repeating again. Wash with antibacterial soap and warm to hot water and pat dry with a soft towel or air dry for optimal lint-free times. It can also be sterilized completely by boiling for 3-5 minutes. Tantus uses only body safe 100% medical grade silicone that is non-porous, phthalate free and hypo-allergenic. You can’t go wrong with a Tantus silicone toy in terms of body-safe properties.

The Tantus Mark dildo available at Babeland is an excellent addition to my dildo collection and is perfect for those times when I want something a little thicker than the Vixen Creations Mistress but thinner than VixSkin Johnny. I highly recommend this dildo in all colors for someone who wants a semi-realistic, easy to care for, average thickness, strap-on compatible dildo.
