I have had this toy since Tantus hit the market twenty years ago, and it is still like brand new - that's the quality of platinum silicone. My favorite use is when I am, ahem, "surfing the web" at my desk with this little toy inside me, pleasing my anus and teasing my rectum like a finger, just firm enough, not enough to distract me from "my work" but rather just enough to turn things up to 11 particularly when I sit upright and grind down on it as I climax.
This is not just a beginner's toy - I am a seasoned veteran of anal play and have owned hundreds of dollars worth of toys in the past two decades - when I recently threw most of them out because they just weren't effective, the Small Ripple was one of the few I kept.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve used this to gently start anal training with my partner and was delighted when they came from it. Fantastic beginner toy.
I have had my Tantus Ripple (small) for a few years now and it's become an essential item in my toy collection, especially now that my wife is going beyond just anally fingering me and learning to pleasure me with toys. It's perfect for starting things out when she has me face down, bottom up, and lubricated. The first bead goes inside with no effort at all, and I enjoy having her pop inside each bigger bead, relaxing my sphincter and preparing me for more. It's easy for her to press inside with her palm on the bottom of the base, and as I move my hips it goes in and out on its own. I'm soon ready for our next bigger toy, and the process begins again. I do much the same to myself when engaging in solo anal masturbation. Others have said that this toy is great for beginners, which is true. But I'm experienced and I have come to appreciate this plug more and more.
It would be nice if this toy (and the large size one, which I haven't tried yet) had a suction cup base, which wouldn't change the design much but add a useful function. But I have no complaints. I LOVE the purple color, one reason I buy Tantus toys and and recommend them to others--it's a lovely shade. And the quality of the silicone can't be beat. The toy is also perfect in terms of how flexible / firm it is. Thank you Tantus!
Male who doesn't like large insertions, I use this to slide in and out slowly. It feels incredible and easily brings me close to orgasm. I like the small tip and I enjoy using this while masturbating.
Definitely great for beginners. I love the graduated design and the beads feel soooo good being pulled out. It's a little small, so I definitely plan on trying out the ripple large. It's a little too flexible, I do wish it was a bit firmer, but other than that, no complaints.
