One of Bloodhound’s few complaints about using dildos on me is that his fingers will sometimes cramp up as he’s holding onto the base to use on me. Luckily Tantus (and PinkCherry) came to the rescue with the Anaconda.
The Anaconda is a thick realistic looking dildo, only it’s on a stick. It’s definitely a thicker toy, with a diameter of 1.75 inches, and not something I’d recommend for someone new to larger toys. The insertable length is 7 inches, with a total length of 11.5 inches. This is definitely not a toy that I would ‘slip into my bag’ for a weekend getaway, as it’s almost of foot of dildo, but I’ve got plenty of room in my toy chest, so the size doesn’t bother me.
The dildo part of the Anaconda is a very firm silicone, with barely any give. The handle, while still stiff, is floppier. If you hold on to the handle and shake it, it doesn’t flop over, but bends instead. The head of the toy is a shiny silicone that has some serious drag to it, while the rest of the toy is lightly textured and matte. It’s a semi-realistic design, with foreskin ‘wrinkles’ under the head, and some lightly raised veins along the shaft, but nothing too pronounced.
As with most silicone toys, this one does pick up lint, but not as badly as a more smooth finish might. I would recommend storing the Anaconda in a fluff free bag, but a ziplock bag would also work if you could find one big enough to hold this! You should probably just be prepared to have to wash your toy before each use. Tantus’ 100% pure platinum silicone toys are easy to sterilize and can be washed with antimicrobial soap, wiped down with a bleach solution, boiled, or even tossed into the top of your dishwasher (without dishwashing liquid) for cleaning! You may need to do a bit of scrubbing with a toothbrush to get lube/come out of the grooves under the head. As usual, silicone toys should only be used with water based lubes, as silicone based ones can damage your toy.
The handle is comfortable to hold for a variety of hand sizes. I usually wear a size medium glove, and have no grip issues with my Anaconda’s handle, and neither does Bloodhound, who wears a size large glove. The toy is long enough that you probably won’t have to worry about getting lube and come on your hands when you’re using it. I found that the handle was also long enough that I was able to use it solo without getting the usual wrist soreness I get when I have an extending a jacking off session, yay! If you’re planning on using this with a partner, make sure that you’ve talked to them about how hard they can thrust with the Anaconda. The firmness of the silicone isn’t as forgiving as other toys, and if they use the toy roughly, it could be pretty uncomfortable.
You could maybe get some g-spot stimulation with this toy if you got the angle just right or you had your partner angling the toy, but it’s not going to work well for most people. I loved the girth, and that combined with the matte texture really made this a unique toy in my toy box, and is totally worth all the extra lube I need to douse this with every time I use it. (matte=drag=me actually needing to use lube with a toy for once!) The material does have another drawback, which is that if I’m not careful, I can thrust too hard and hit my cervix, which is not the sort of pain I am into.
I didn’t try this toy anally, as the girth and the lack of squish make it a bit more intense than what I normally like for anal play. If you are interested in putting this toy in your ass, you will want to make sure you’re well stretched/lubed beforehand, as the blunted tip is going to be a bit hard to take otherwise. While there is a flared base at the very bottom of the handle, it’s not a huge flare, so I’d recommend not inserting the Anaconda past the end of the dildo part.
Overall, this is an awesome toy, and a unique design! I give it 5 paws up out of 5!
