I recently purchased a few toys from Tantus and all of them have been fantastic. I use the Ripple Large to start myself off during solo Anal play. The first set of beads make it in really smoothly. About half way in or so I start to feel a bit of pressure of the larger beads. With a bit of relaxation, lube and time, I'm able to get them all in which feels great. Over all, the beads feel really smooth. The base is great to hold on to and this toy feels great in my hand.
This was my first Tantus toy about ten years ago. I got into anal initially via discovery of my prostate with a G-spot vibrator and then years later a love of enemas. The Ripple Large actually followed several years after the latter. It allowed me to experience the added sensation of stimulating the sphincter nerves, by a toy's shape popping in and out of the Ãƒ nal sphincters both directions. That turned out to be key for helping to understand how such an activity relaxes the anus for something larger. It's great for initial exploration and, if this type of play turns out to be a "fit" for you, be forewarned that you may have dozens of toys in your future ;) In my case there are now a full dozen Tantus toys among those dozens!
I have spent so much money on cheaper toys. But always feel best with Tantus. I am now the proud owner of 9 of them. They are awesome.
My wife and I have purchased several toys for anal play from Tantus. The large ripple does not disappoint. This toy is one of my go to toys when I want some girth without too much at once. The graduated beads are just right for a night of fun. It allow one to take it slow and at their own pace after every larger bead insertion. Each bead sends a new sensation of pleasure shuttering through your body. We often use this toy prior to pegging to loosen me up or sometimes as a stand alone toy. When it is all the way in it really sends waves of pleasure through my body, especially when my wife rides me to orgasm while inserted. Mind blowing!
The first pop at the end is just like a finger, pushing and insisting its way in. The second one opens you a little, and from there you're just caught on this smooth series of waves until OOF you bottom out, but you've not gotten to the last bead. I'm not sure whose rectum is long enough to take all of this beautiful little beast.
It's actually taught me how to take things into my sigmoid, but unless that's a commitment you want to take on you may want to go with the Buck.
