Tantus Cush O2 Dildo Review

~I received this product from Tantus for free in exchange for an honest review. This in no way, shape or form has any affect on my opinions on this product.~

 I think the Tantus Cush O2 has to be one of the most desired dildos in my collection. By that I mean it was one of the very first dildos I actually developed an ache for before I ever had one of my own. Every time I saw extremely positive reviews on the Cush O2, it was like my body just screamed in anguish. This was way back when I was still very new to sex toys and I didn’t have a blog. But then a while later when I decided to have a blog, I became a Tantus affiliate and I fucking finally, got my wish! The Cush O2 became mine. And I just couldn’t be happier. But this is review isn’t going to be a positive one. I know. I want to cry, too.

First Impressions:

 I know a lot of you will be familiar with how fun and attractive the packaging for Tantus is, but my Cush O2 arrived in a sealed, plastic bag. This didn’t really bother me at the time, I kind of figured it would be easier for Tantus as I live in the UK – there were three other dildos in my review package. Since there’s not much to talk about here, let’s get onto the Cush O2.

The appearance of the Cush O2 is what nearly everyone comments on. To put it bluntly – it’s fucking gorgeous! The Cush O2 comes in three colours. Candy Pink, Ice, and Twilight. On the day I received my Cush, I was overjoyed at the fact it’s in Ice, it really is so stunning. An extremely lovely light blue colour, with tones of darker shades along the ridge of the shaft, the underlying colour of white gives the Cush an overall very beautiful look to it. The Cush O2 stands proudly at 7.5 inches (6.5 inches being insertable) and a circumference of 5.5 inches.

The Cush O2 is in one of my favourite things for a sex toy. Dual density! If you’ve read my reviews on VixSkin dildos then you’ll know how much I love dual density. Although, Tantus’ dual density isn’t the same – it’s a lot firmer and there’s little to no flexibility in their dual density dildos. The Cush O2 is no different in that regard. The shaft is incredibly firm with some very slight resistance to it, the head is also quite firm and I wasn’t expecting that but I know a lot of people love firm, silicone toys. I was also expecting the prominent ridge on the shaft to have at least some squish to it, but no, it’s very much firm.

 Firnmess of the Cush O2.

For some reason, I thought that the Cush O2 had a suction cup but just to clear up any confusion, it does not have one. This isn’t a deal breaker by any means as I rarely use suction cup dildos, but keep that in mind if you prefer toys with suction cups.

My Experience with the Cush O2:

 I hate this dildo. Not even an understatement, I just hate it. I do wonder if my expectations were too high from all the amazing things I’d heard people say about the Cush O2, but I do know that it’s really not for me. The ridge is so fucking painful, it’s not even really a case of the silicone being incredibly firm. It’s the fact that the shaft on Cush O2 is too long for me, personally. When I insert the Cush, I push it in as far as it will go (without hurting myself) and then when it bottoms out, the ridge rests around my vaginal opening which hurts so much.

I can’t even thrust with the Cush because the ridge just tugs on my skin and afterwards, it feels like the inside of my vagina has been rubbed down with sandpaper. I noticed that when I went to urinate after I had used the Cush, it stung because my skin had been damaged. There thankfully wasn’t any blood but I still felt incredibly sore for the rest of the night.

You might be thinking that I didn’t warm myself up enough for the Cush to be pleasureable for me, because it definitely isn’t a toy for beginners. But no, I warmed up plenty. I drenched the Cush in a lot of lube and I had an orgasm prior to insertion. It slipped in with ease but like I said, it’s just too lengthy for me.

Verdict:

I do think that if the silicone was on the softer side, it’s possible that the Cush could have given me a better experience so maybe one day, Tantus might make a softer version of their dual density, or just their silicone in general. If you actually have the capacity to take a dildo of this size without the ridge resting at your opening and it’s just sitting comfortably inside you, then the Cush O2 will likely work for you, judging from the positive reviews I’ve read. But if you’re like me and can’t take the full length of a dildo this size, then I think passing by on the Cush would be a good idea.

It really is such a shame that the Cush O2 doesn’t work for me as I was so happy and excited to finally own one myself. But unfortunately, not all toys will work for everyone in the same way. This is a prime example of that.
