Toy Review: The Tantus Gary O2

Is there any way I can say this that will surprise you? I think by now you could walk into your house at night and find me jumping out of a giant cake releasing a storm of confetti, glitter and doves and you still wouldn’t be shocked. Why? Because y’all know what I’m about to say: Tantus have done it again and I adore my Tantus Gary.

This is a dildo I cherish, both for its effectiveness and its quality. There’s no brand quite like Tantus and I’m glad to say they’ve wowed me yet again. What a shocker.

The Tantus Gary O2

The Tantus Gary is part of the Tantus O2 Dual Density Line and follows on Tantus’ recent trend of making ultra-realistic dildos. This dildo not only feels more natural during use but it also has an uncanny amount of detail and I could trace it veins and finer details with my fingertips like I could on a person’s bare skin. Of course Gary’s high level of detail comes with a price—namely that it’s recommend you boil this toy for the best clean—but it’s a small trade-off when faced with all of the benefits that the Gary provides.

The Tantus Gary is a beautifully detailed and effective dildo.

The Tantus Gary O2, like all Tantus toys, is made out of Ultra-Premium silicone. This makes is non-porous, phthalate-free and completely body-safe. However, unlike all Tantus toys (and unlike most toys on the market) the Tantus Gary is dual density. This means that it has a firm inner core of silicone and a softer, plusher layer on the surface.

Gary’s dual density effect helps make it feel like a gentler dildo and creates that ‘real feel’ effect that Tantus were striving for. Of course in reality a dildo can never quite feel like a person but the Tantus Gary has enough give to it to provide a more intuitive experience. It doesn’t quite feel like a real penis but neither does it feel like a dildo. It’s an equilibrium of sensations and one that I quite enjoy.

The silicone itself has a matte surface and the increased level of detail means an increased amount of texture and drag. Rest assured, though, that this is the good kind of drag; the kind that hugs against my insides and leaves me biting my lip as I ache for each incoming thrust. Here’s hoping it has the same results for you too.

Gary’s coronal ridge is quite subtle, which is usually a downside for me, but it is immediately followed by a nice wrinkling of skin which provides a huge cluster of very noticeable (but soft) texture. Combined with the drag of the silicone this texture becomes perfect foe G-Spot stimulation and creates a very notable sensation. It really is like a persistent craving with an immediate reward, I can’t get enough of it and I believe it plays a large part in what makes the Gary so exceptional.

The wrinkled texture on the Gary's shaft is a large part of what makes it great.

Girth is probably a contributing factor in the Gary’s might too. The Tantus Gary has an insertable length of 7 inches and a maximum circumference of 5.1 inches. While this may not seem like much it combines perfectly with the squishy drag of the Gary in order to provide a filling but not stretching sensation which should be accessible to most.

The Tantus Gary also has a slight curve, which helps aid in stimulation. It also has a flared base, making it harness compatible and anal friendly. For harnessed use it’s worth noting that the Tantus Gary has a softer outer layers of silicone and more bend than something like the Tantus Pack ‘n Play No. 2 so people looking for a rigid toy for harnessed use might want to look at other Tantus products. However for simulated fellatio the softness of the Tantus Gary actually works to its advantage, providing a very enjoyable toy to suck on (albeit its girthy head felt a bit too chunky for my tastes).

My experiences with the Tantus Gary were consistently exceptional and I can’t sing its praises enough. If not warmed up enough this toy can feel a bit too big upon insertion but other than that it’s pretty much a 10/10. The way it stimulated my upper wall, how receptive it was to muscle contractions, the subtle bonus of the silicone warming to body temperature during use. All of this and more made it so that my orgasms with the Gary were phenomenal. My climaxes with this toy weren’t just powerful, though, they were body-quiveringly good, and the ripples near the head made it so that my orgasms were always prolonged and incredibly satisfying.

This dildo may not suit everyone, especially considering the texture causes cleaning issues.

Now at this point there is very little that would stop me from recommending the Gary to you. However I do feel like personal preference comes in to play and not everyone will find the Gary to be to their tastes. If you want a firm or glossy toy the Gary isn’t for you. If you dislike realistic toys then the Gary ticks the realism box and then some, so it’s worth giving a miss. And if you prefer toys to start of slim and taper outwards into a more girthy form lower down the shaft then the Gary is basically does the polar opposite of that.

On a more objective note cleaning the Gary without boiling it really can be a pain so people who need to be discreet about their dildo may find they’re scrubbing it in the sink for a longer duration. This is also exasperated by the fact that the Gary is a dust magnet. But, really, I can’t hold any of this against the Gary.

Final Thoughts

Overall I am totally enthused by the Tantus Gary and can happily hold it up as another example of Tantus craftsmanship at its finest. There is nothing about this toy that I would change and I know that I’d miss it if it were lacking from my collection.

So if you’re looking for a realistic dildo and don’t mind a bit of squish and flexibility then the Tantus Gary could be the perfect dildo for you, especially if you’re craving a bit of texture too.
