Superboy loves butt toys! 😉
Oh you know, just some painting supplies and a matching butt plug…
The Ryder isn’t my first silicone butt plug, but it’s my first Tantus plug, which for me is a cause for celebration. Tantus is a respected manufacturer of 100% silicone sex toys, trusted even by sex bloggers’ high standards, and I’ve wanted to try one of their products for quite awhile now. When Vibrations Direct offered to send me a toy to review, I chose the Ryder because Epiphora, one of my favorite reviewers, raved that it’s a “sex toy staple,” and I’ve never come across a negative opinion about it.
So, is all of the hype true? Is the Ryder some sort of silicone butt miracle? After constantly sticking the thing in and out of my ass for the past 2 weeks, I can confidently tell you that it is definitely a wonderful plug, once you’re ready for it. I say once you’re ready for it because many sites describe the Ryder as perfect for beginners, which I don’t think is true, unless you have a very stretchy ass or you like a challenge.
I thought I would have no problem getting the Ryder in since I have anal sex, even though it’s the largest anal toy I’ve tried so far, with a 3” insertable length and 1.6” girth. Not surprisingly though, inserting an egg-shaped silicone plug that has some drag to it is a lot different than inserting a hard dick, and the first few times I used the Ryder took a lot of time and patience, starting first with fingers and foreplay and then moving on to inserting it with lots of lube and more patience and foreplay. Now that I’ve used it quite a few times, I can get it in faster, but I still need a good warm up.
Once I got the hang of the Ryder though, I began to enjoy its magic. Ryder’s slightly tapered egg shape and thinner neck makes it very comfortable once inserted, and it stays in place well, giving me a nice full sensation while masturbating, having sex, or just wearing it around for fun. The Ryder’s rectangular base is a godsend compared to other obtrusive round bases, and although I definitely know it’s in there when I’m wearing it, it isn’t obvious or obnoxious, and it doesn’t poke me when I sit.
My favorite way to use the Ryder is as a warm up for anal sex. The added time it takes for me to get the Ryder in is foreplay in itself, and once it’s in for awhile while Jake and I play around or have vaginal sex, my ass is more than ready to move on to something bigger. The Ryder’s longer body warms up my sphincter muscles much better than the quick “pop” of my other smaller and more bulbous shaped plugs. I also enjoy using the Ryder with a dildo, and it doesn’t get in the way even when using hard toys or fall out when I orgasm, unlike some other plugs.
Since it’s made of 100% silicone, the Ryder is non-porous and can be easily cleaned and sterilized, which is especially important for anal toys. I always wash it before and after use with antibacterial soap and water and give it a more thorough cleaning as needed. Silicone toys are notorious for their tendency to retain smells, and the best way I’ve found to get rid of this is by spraying it with a 10% bleach 90% water solution and letting it air out.* I’ve also tried boiling it for 10 minutes and running it through the dishwasher (top shelf, no soap,) which are both valid cleaning options, but they don’t work as well for eliminating odor. The Ryder’s silicone also attracts lint, dust, dirt, cat hair, and anything else around like crazy, so it requires a wipe down or rinse at the very least before use.
If you’re looking for a quality, comfortable medium butt plug or a fun toy for anal sex foreplay, then I wholeheartedly recommend the Tantus Ryder. It’s made of hygienic silicone, it’s comfortable, it provides a nice full feeling, and it’s a fun way to warm up for anal sex. I wouldn’t recommend the Ryder for anal beginners though, and even if you’re not an anal beginner, I suggest lots of foreplay, relaxation, and thick lube, which are important for all anal play anyways.
*After using a bleach solution, wash the toy with soap and water and rinse well before use. You don’t want bleach or even soap residue getting in or around your genitals.
This was one of my favorite images that I captured while photographing sex toys last week. Can anyone guess what kind of camera it is? Also stay tuned y’all, I’m posting my review of the Tantus Ryder tomorrow…
Update 12/18/2014: Crystal Delights doesn’t make the Atomic Rose Plug anymore, but they still make other similar plugs.
When I found out I won a Crystal Delights Atomic Rose Plug through Dangerous Lilly’s contest, I was beyond excited. Not only was it my first glass butt plug, but it was also a beautiful, handmade, clear pink glass plug complete with a vintage rose medallion from the Czech Republic (fancy, huh?) I’m part Czech, so that only added to my feeling that it was meant to be mine, and I couldn’t wait to get the plug in the mail and wear it.
The Atomic Rose Plug came delicately wrapped in its protective black storage bag and was just as lovely as I expected. The website says it’s about 4” long, with 3.5 insertable inches and a 1.3” bulb, but mine is a little smaller (about 3.25” long/ 1.2” bulb,) which didn’t surprise me since I knew that Crystal Delights toys are hand blown and have slight variances.
My Atomic Rose Plug has had plenty of air time (figuratively speaking) since I received it; sometimes I wear it simply so Jake can admire its beauty in my ass, or while masturbating with a mirror so I can admire it myself, or as a warm-up for anal sex. It’s small enough for me to use comfortably and easily, but it’s still big enough that I can enjoy the sensation of inserting it and a feeling of fullness while I wear it. It stays in place well, and even though it moves outward when I orgasm, it hasn’t fallen out.
I love my Atomic Rose Plug as a pretty plug for play, and it works perfectly for that. What it doesn’t work as well for is casual wear, since it protrudes out of me quite obviously, and I can feel its circular base between my cheeks. I’ve tried to walk around with it in, and it’s cumbersome, although it’s actually not bad to sit in (on a soft surface,) but I don’t do it often. Still, that doesn’t really bother me as I love the toy for what is it—a high quality glass plug and luxurious anal accessory.
One advantage to glass toys is that you can use either water based or silicone lube with them, and I’ve tried it with both and like it either way. I’ve found that I don’t need a lot of lube with it since it’s so smooth and fairly small. Glass toys are also ideal for sensation play since they hold temperature well, although they should always be cooled and heated gradually with water to avoid harming the material.
Glass is non-porous, hygienic, and easy to clean, and I usually just wash it with antibacterial soap and water. The medallion portion does have texture and a grove around it, but it’s still easily cleaned with an old toothbrush. Since it’s glass, I do have to wash it more carefully than some of my other toys to avoid damaging it. It’s made of sturdy Pyrex, but it could still chip against the wrong material, which would ruin it and be a tragic waste (although if that ever happened I would probably display it somewhere as artwork.)
If you’re looking for a small, stunning piece of butt bling, I definitely recommend the Atomic Rose Plug or another Crystal Delights plug. If you need another reason to buy this toy (besides its general swankiness,) it’s also one of their various Colors Against Cancer toys. I hope to add some other Crystal Delights toys to my collection soon, specifically one of their original Swarovski Crystal Plugs, one of their Mini Twist Plugs, one of their Glass Dildos… okay who are we kidding, I want to try them all. If you decide you want one, please buy one through my link and help me save up for my next; I appreciate it!
The night was warm and wet, and small beads of sweat trickled between my breasts. I felt like walking sex with so much bare skin showing in my vintage tube top, and I felt curious eyes drift over me as I returned to our table with a fresh beer. Putting a hand on his leg as I dipped into my seat, I followed Jake’s lustful gaze.
“What about her?” he asked, eyeing a young blonde in a flowery dress.
“She looks a little prissy,” I answered, “but hot.”
“I wonder if she would be interested in both of us,” Jake mused, moving closer.
“I wonder what her pussy looks like,” I said, glancing around to gauge if anyone could hear our conversation.
If they could, they didn’t show it.
When we got home later, I told Jake I was tired and wanted go to sleep soon. I could tell he craved a late night fuck, but I wanted to torture him a little. Sitting on the futon together, I put my bare feet in his lap and told him to rub them as we talked and watched TV. Since we had been checking people out together all night, the topic of threesomes drifted into our conversation again, and I mentioned a tall, cute guy with brown hair I had flirted with while ordering a drink at the bar.
“I think he wanted to fuck me,” I said.
“Of course he did,” Jake said, kissing my toes playfully.
“Next time you should tell him to come home with us,” he continued, “if you want to get fucked extra hard.”
I couldn’t help but rub myself gently over my panties, picturing Jake and the other man standing over me, two big hands on my breasts and two squeezing my ass.
“Where would you want us to come?” he asked.
“Hmm, I guess it depends on what position I’m in,” I answered, feeling my pussy moisten through the soft cotton, my nipples perking in anticipation.
Not wasting any time, we rushed to the bedroom, peeling off our clothes along the way.
“I want to be your fuck toy tonight,” I said as he stood at the edge of the bed, his cock rising like a proud flag.
Without using my hands, I searched for his penis with my mouth, and he waved it back in forth, his hardness hitting my cheek.
“You don’t get it yet,” he said slyly, grabbing my chin with one hand and holding my face to his. I looked into his eyes and saw that his look had intensified.
“Lie on your back,” he instructed, and I quickly changed positions, with my body lying face up on the bed, my head tilted back over the edge near where he stood, almost upside down.
Without asking, he thrust himself into my mouth, and I frantically moved my tongue around him, eager to please. He held my arms down on the bed, trapping me in my deliciously vulnerable position.
“All the way,” he said softly, although still in a rough, aroused voice, “you can do it.”
I stopped moving my tongue and focused all of my effort on relaxing every muscle in my throat and moving my head so he was at just the right angle. He thrusted hard, and I was amazed with how far he went. I’ve deep throated him plenty of times, but in this position it felt like he was further inside than ever before.
“That’s it,” he said, “good girl.”
By now I could feel my pussy dripping and pulsing with excitement, even though he hadn’t touched me yet. He kept thrusting, deeper and deeper, and I gagged a few times, not enough to make me stop, but enough to make me feel even more out of control, even more that I wanted nothing other than to give him immense pleasure.
Just when the thrusting began to feel like too much, too hard, too fast, he grabbed my hair and pulled my head up towards his. His cheek now pressed roughly against mine, he held one hand tight around my neck and the other parted my throbbing lips, his fingers moving hard inside me. I could feel my spit dripping down my neck.
“You’re a good little mouth,” he said, as I moaned with the sudden powerful penetration, “and a good pussy” I answered, nodding my head slightly as he continued.
“Just imagine,” he said, “soon we will do this again, but while you’re busy sucking my dick, you’re going to get fucked too.”
His words came to life in my mind, and I pictured another hard cock filling up my mouth, silencing my moans and gasps, leaving me even more breathless and helpless, submitting to pleasure. My first orgasm rushed over me, my legs flailing beneath him, and I thought he would stop after feeling my pussy tighten and clench around his fingers, but he didn’t. He kept going.
“Oh fuck baby,” I gasped, another orgasm blossoming from deep inside.
“Do you want me to fuck your mouth again?” he asked, expecting me to nod in approval.
“No,” I retorted instead, “I want you to fuck my ass.”
“Mmm,” he groaned, “stay still.”
I waited for a few minutes that seemed like forever and then felt the cool trickle of lube between my legs. I was on all fours, propped on my elbows, and I began stroking my clit lightly with one hand. I needed to relax. I focused on my breathing as I felt a finger caress my tight hole, moving in slow circles.
“That feels so good baby,” I moaned as he teased me mercilessly.
When he finally put a finger in, I was ready, and I wanted more. When he pulled out his finger I felt something harder, a glass plug.
“Time to warm up your tight little ass,” he said as he pushed it in slowly, listening for my cues. I sighed as it passed my threshold, popping into place. Before I could move he thrust his hard cock inside my soft cunt, and I felt wet and full and ready to erupt. Raw emotions bubbled inside me, exploding from my mouth.
“I want to give you a double blow job,” I moaned from below him as he kept thrusting madly, “she’ll suck your cock, and I’ll lick your balls and your ass.”
I turned around a little so I could see that look on his face when he fucks me, the wild intensity of it.
“I can’t wait to see you fuck another pussy; I can’t wait to lick her clit while you thrust into her, you’ll fuck her good baby,” I said, closing my eyes and picturing it.
“Fuck yes,” he answered, pulling out of me quickly and pivoting me roughly towards him, pumping his cock with one hand and shoving my head toward it with the other. I swallowed him again whole, and I tasted myself on his cock and smelled my juices on his balls as my nose pressed up firmly against them. I love the way my pussy smells, and I groaned and licked and moved my mouth frantically, my animal instincts taking over. When he finally pulled out again, I could barely breathe, and I tried my best to muster up an answer when he asked roughly, “do you want me to fuck your ass now?”
“Yes,” I said, moving quickly back to my position on all fours, sticking my butt up high in the air. He tugged on the plug, which made me feel like I was going to come again, but I held back, using all of my self control not to stroke myself yet.
He stopped touching me for a minute, and images flashed through my mind: sucking two cocks at once, back and forth, a woman’s moist and plump pussy lips in my face, being thrown around like a doll, four hands between my legs.
My fantasies dissipated as I felt a warm thwack on my right ass cheek, the concentrated sting of a crop that I hadn’t felt in a long time.
“Harder,” I said as he brought it down again on the other check. After a few hits, I felt close to orgasm again, and nearly came when he suddenly brought it down on my pussy, the sting sending waves of pleasure, making me twitch and writhe.
“Oh fuck,” I gasped, trying not to come yet, trying to control myself, but I could hear myself moan louder and louder, as if I was outside of my body looking in, observing. He pulled out the plug, and my right hand gravitated to my pussy automatically. I squeezed my mound and cupped my hand over myself, waiting anxiously. Jake rubbed his cock over my ass; he knew I was more than ready but kept me waiting just long enough. I gasped when he finally pushed himself into me, and now I was more than relaxed and eager.
“How’s this baby?” he asked, grunting loudly, gripping my hips and moving faster.
“Just right,” I answered, feeling myself getting closer. Every movement he made felt like an explosion of sensation, my tight ass squeezing him, feeling him, taking him in deeper. I got that familiar timeless sensation I usually get during sex, except this time it was all slow motion, and every thrust seemed to last forever, the feelings swelling and intensifying.
“Oh god I’m going to come,” I gasped, my clit throbbing frantically beneath my fingers as my pussy and ass tightened. I felt dizzy and warm and consumed as the orgasm I had been prolonging took over me, my body flushing and shaking, my heartbeat slowing to an all encompassing loud pulse, sending blood rushing through my head, my arms, my legs, my pussy, my neck.
I gasped again, almost falling off of the edge of the bed as he pulled out and came, his warm semen splashing my back. I felt like I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t speak. Jake must have sensed my helplessness, as he pulled me up onto the bed before I could topple over the side. I was way too tired to shower and passed out drenched in come and sweat.
The next morning, I woke up still wet, my hand on my cunt, smiling at the memory of the previous night’s ecstasy as I felt the slickness of lube between my thighs.
