Review: Tantus Ryder, the world’s comfiest butt plug

I love the Ryder.  I’ve had mine for years and really love how comfortable it is.  It stays in really nicely, and a comfy shape, and is squishy enough that it’s great for double-penetration.  I recently bought a new one from Tantus because they have improved the design of the plug!  Take a look:

left: new design. right: old design.

The new plug (pink) is on the left, old design (purple) is on the right.  Don’t be confused by the color- the new version is available in both purple and black!  Mine is pink because I got it from the grab bag section.  What we’re looking at here is the difference in the base.  The old version had a very comfortable squishy base, but it was almost too squishy- I had one play session in which a partner’s enthusiastic bum sucked the base right up inside!  The new base is thicker and much sturdier. Tantus is only selling the new model, but if you’re buying off-site you should make sure you’re getting the thicker based one.

Old base bad.

New base good!

Should you ever find yourself with a foreign body up your tush, stay calm and gently bear down (or push as if you were trying to poop.)  In my case it only took a few seconds to get it back out, so think positive!  Otherwise go to the hospital.  They’ve seen worse.

excuse me, doctor, I’ve got something in my teeth.

The Ryder is smooth and slightly squishy.  It’s on the medium-large side  (diameter 1.5″, length 4.6″)  It’s got a nice tapered neck which makes it super comfy to slide in and out.  It gives a gentle but present feeling of fullness.  It feels so nice that I was inspired to try out the off-label use of putting it inside my pussy.  I left it there while doing some household chores and then later while giving a blowjob and it felt AWESOME.  It gives your kegels something to squeeze against and just feels nice and full.  The thought crossed my mind just now to use two at once- one vaginally and one anally.  Am I flying too close to the sun??  Time will tell.

You can get your own Ryder at Tantus for $38.44!  As always, they use awesomely body-safe silicone that is easy to clean.  I tend to boil mine.  Good silicone ain’t cheap, but Tantus has a fabulous grab bag section where you can get this same amazing plug for $17.99.

Five out of five stars, for sure.  This is one of my favorites.  Give it a try!

Butt plugs forever.

KATE OUT!

So You Want to Try Butt Stuff Part 3: Double Penetration

Double penetration slays me.  It’s both physical and psychological.  I love feeling filled, stretched, overpowered, submissive.  I love the attention and the taboo and the wholeness.  It makes me feel wanton.  I love it.

There are a number of ways a gal can play with double penetration, both solo and with a partner.  One of my life’s greatest delights is to be fucked doggy-style with a finger  or thumb in my ass.  Personally I don’t need both to be moving to get off- even just the presence of something in my bum gives me a lovely feeling of fullness that makes me cum like nothing else.

A plug works nicely to provide that feeling during sex or fingering or toy penetration, because a lubey, clenching butt can shoot toys right out of ya!  For that reason, I prefer toys with a girthy bulb and a thin neck, and as always- a flared base.  A good option for that is the Pure Plug.

Notice how the plug base is small-ish, meaning it won’t get in the way of your other holes.  Your partner will feel the presence of the toy through your inner walls and good times will be had by all.  I’ve never had a problem with the Pure Plug coming out of me.  It is very hard though (it’s stainless steel after all!) so I wouldn’t use it with another hard toy, like a glass or metal dildo- because the walls inside of you are delicate and I’m afraid of hurting myself in the throes of enthusiastic ecstasy.

A good squishier alternative is the Sidekick.  Note again the big ratio of bulb-to-neck.  That’s what you’re depending on to keep that guy in there!

If you’re up for a really good time, there’s always the Deuce harness by Joque, which I wrote about here.  It’s a harness worn by a man that also has a hole for a dildo.  In this case, I like something smooth and flexible- more for a feeling of fullness than major stretch or texture.  A dildo like The Siren is a really nice choice.

Remember, you never want to use a finger/toy/anything in a vagina that has just been in a bum.  Butts house their own bacteria and it spells bad news for vaginas.  You can of course sterilize toys with Renew toy wash or boiling (solid silicone only) or you can be a lazy bum like me and just use a condom on your toys.  You can also use gloves to be able to finger with near-wild abandon.

So!  Give it a try if it sounds good to you.  Go slowly and start small and as always- LUBE LUBE LUBE!

So You Want to Try Butt Stuff Part 2: Strap-ons

Strap ons are for everybody!  (Yes, I know I keep saying that about things.)  Welcome to Part 2 of the Butt Stuff series.  If you missed Part 1: Intro To Butt Stuff, you can find it here.

Strap-ons are so fun.  There are lots of kinds of harnesses and toys, and I’m going to tell you about my favorites here!

When it comes to harnesses, I am fiercely loyal to the company Spareparts.  See here: the Joque harness.

This was recommended to me in a Good Vibes store, where they let me take the floor model to the bathroom to try on over my clothes.  As a Lady of Circumference (size 20,) I found this harness in size B fit like a dream and had room to accommodate a body significantly bigger than mine.  What I like about this harness is that it is both comfortable (no plasticy straps digging into your thighs) and easy to clean (machine washable!)  I’ve had mine for years and it’s held up very well.  It’s also flattering and sturdy.  Mine looks especially cute under a red corset and a black tulle short skirt.  And heels, obvi.  Spareparts harnesses are well worth the price.

Another one I have by them is the Deuce Male Harness, which is intended to be worn by men for double penetration.

Image

This one is similar to the first, but has 2 holes to accommodate both your bio-cock and a toy.  (I THINK it could be used with 2 toys, but it might be a little wobbly?)  As a HUGE fan of double penetration, let me say that this harness worked exactly as I expected it to.  That being said, I also found out that full-on double-cock sex first makes me cum so hard I almost pass out, and then immediately makes me feel like I ate a whole cake.  This is a wonderful product, but one that supplies an experience I can only handle once in a while.

Good Vibes has tons of sexy harnesses- many more than when I was reviewing a few years ago!  These are the only two I own, though I encourage you to go check out their selection.

As far as toys to use with a strap on, I’ve found gents new to the receiving end of things tend to be big fans of the Charm series.

Image

I see they only have the small one in stock right now, which is the size of a slim finger.  These are nice because 1, they’re not super phallic and can be more comfortable for people, and 2, they’re really smooth and squishy.  These toys will slide right in with very little resistance and are a good first toy to make someone who’s feeling unsure/ uncomfortable with the idea of anal play.  I think it’s virtually impossible for these to hurt.  I’ve got 2 (small and large) and I love them.

Next up is the Bullseye, which is bigger and firmer than the Charms.

Image

You’ll notice this one has a curve and a pronounced head.  This combo will rock your prostate or g-spot, whichever you’ve got!  (Remember- aim the curve toward the belly button.)  This is a girthier toy and the big head provides a bit of a “pop” getting it in.  It can be very pleasurable, but is also a stretch, so take your time and warm up!  Once in, it gives a really nice feeling of fullness.

Last but not least, we’ve got the ones I like to be penetrated with- because I’m a shameless size queen.  Introducing the First Mate and the Captain!

(I know they look similar- but note the difference in girth.)
These are good for people like me who love deep penetration.  I’m a fan of -ahem- having my cervix pounded, and these lovely toys do the trick.  They’re not for everyone, but if this is what you’re into, they’re hard to beat!  If you thought you’d like it and it turns out you don’t, check out this little genius idea:

O-Stabilizer rings are designed to stabilize a toy in a harness or provide a bumper to help decrease penetration depth.

Serious high 5 to whoever came up with these.  They’re a great idea!

 

All for now!  Do message me/comment with questions and concerns.  I love to help!

Happy fucking!  🙂
