If you follow my blog or read my reviews you most likely already know I’ve done reviews for 4 of the 5 products within Tantus’ Little Secret line. As expected my experiences were different for each one; Whisper was a little too basic for me, being closer in design to a butt plug than a massager or clitoral stimulator. I was pleased with the flat end both Touch and Spoon sported, finding them to be fantastic for either a mild massage or to stimulate various body parts. Kiss impressed me almost instantly with its slightly curved and pointed tip, making it perfect for targeted clitoral stimulation and amazing foreplay, which brings me to the last product in the line up – one that also happens to be my favorite – the unbelievably bold, bright and uniquely designed neon green Tease.
For those of you that want to read about my experience with the other products within the Little Secret’s line, I previously did a review of the Whisper, Touch, Spoon and Kiss which you can find by clicking this link.
*just a heads up, some of the the content within this review has been taken from my previous posts as the information regarding the packaging, level of quality, care and cleaning is the same. If you read the other reviews, you can skip those parts and just read my take on Tease.
As with the majority of Tantus products the Little Secrets come respectfully, professionally, playfully and beautifully packaged in clear boxes that show them off the way they deserve. The only real difference from the ‘regular’ packaging is the adornment of pretty reflective silver, white and grey flowers that make the cases look ‘designer’ in nature and very high end.
*I absolutely love it and hope they keep it up with all the new lines they create!
There’s nothing on them that’s rude, unprofessional or embarrassing and with the exception of the word “toy”, there really isn’t anything to hint at what they’re designed for. You could definitely buy any of the Little Secret’s and not have to worry about what someone would think should they come across them unexpectedly.
For those of you that don’t know, all of Tantus‘ products are crafted out of Ultra Premium Silicone making them easy to care for and clean, extremely body safe (being both phthalate and latex free), waterproof, odorless, hypoallergenic, hygienic, non toxic and non porous. Basically put, they’re badass in every way possible!
*because they’re non porous they won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria.
Taking all of that into consideration, I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad word to say about anything they’ve made, and since they’re made from some of the best materials an intimate accessory manufacture can get their hands on, along with being anatomically targeted and tested, I just don’t think I could.
As for the specifics of the Little Secret’s, I’m going to do a bunch of mini reviews, rather than one basic overall review, as I feel they’re each worthy of their own moment in the spotlight.
Tease measures 4 1/4″ inches in total length, with a usable length of 3 1/4″, it’s 7/8″ in diameter and has a circumference of 3″. It’s discreet, much more comfortable to hold than the others, easy to store and very unique in design. Compared to the others within the Little Secret line Tease sticks out due to its hourglass figure which hugs the fingers and body exceptionally well. Like Kiss it has the same tapered end that leads to a slightly curved tip, one that when turned on resembles a flicking tongue.
I was absolutely blown away by the color, very rarely do you find products in such bright, opaque and almost sparkly neon colors, especially this shade of green (many come close, but they don’t have the same opalescent sheen). The texture of the silicone is like the others being supple and slightly squishy allowing for a bit of ‘give’. The tip, being similar to Kiss, is quite flexible and bends when in use giving the user the options of a very gentle pressure (great for a targeted application) or a heavier one which offers both a larger area for stimulation and a deeper vibration. Just like Kiss, I found the tip of this product is one of its best features.
The strength is the same as all of the other products within the line, being neither too strong nor too weak, however I did find that because the tip was thinner the vibrations were a tiny bit stronger than the others (just in the tip though – pun intended). On that note, if you like an exceptionally powerful vibration I don’t think the Little Secrets would work for you while in their sleeve. In contrast, if you’re very sensitive or like something that’s a steady, mid range vibe they just might be perfect.
*For those of you that like a strong vibe, keep in mind that you can easily remove the bullet from the sleeve and use it as is.
The first time you try to remove the sleeve may not be the easiest and you’ll likely find yourself wiggling, pulling, twisting and tugging in frustration. I found it easiest to remove when I pinched the squishy tip with one hand and gently pulled the end of the bullet with the other, taking a second every so often to gently peel away the opening of the sleeve (which allows air inside the space and makes the suction easier to break). Once I had it off I applied a small bit of lube and reinserted the bullet which allowed it slide in and out without any friction or frustration.
Like all of the products in the line, Tease is exceptionally quiet (trust me, no one will hear it even if they’re in the same room), fits nicely in the hand making usage very easy and comfortable, is slightly squishy allowing for a bit of ‘give’ when in use and because it has a simple push button activation it’s easy to start and stop.
As for ways it could be used, I personally think it’s best as a clitoral stimulator, though teasing and taunting your partners erogenous zones is also nice. Because it has a flat tip insertion for vaginal use isn’t the easiest or most comfortable easy and I truthfully don’t know how much stimulation it would offer.
*The only thing I’d advise against is anal insertion as it doesn’t have a flared base and will possibly get lodged inside you.
Care & Cleaning
Since they’re made of Ultra Premium Silicone you can wash them with anti bacterial soap and water, boil them up to 600° Fahrenheit, bleach them with a 10% bleach solution, or simply put them in the top rack of your dishwasher…yes, I did say put them in the dishwasher. I also suggest you remove the sleeve from the bullet before any kind of cleaning. While the bullet is waterproof (another bonus!), I don’t think it would do too well being placed in boiling water, a dishwasher or bleach solution. Simply washing it with anti bacterial soap and water or spraying it with toy cleaner will do.
Keeping your Tantus products like new shouldn’t be too hard, just keep in mind you should only be using water based lubricants as a silicone lube will likely ruin them. If all you have is silicone and you really want to use it, I suggest you do a “patch test” first; place a tiny amount on the bottom of your silicone sleeve or the base of the product, if it becomes foggy, matte or looks like it’s melting don’t use it as it wont be compatible.
As for changing the batteries it’s very easy; just unscrew the bottom cap, remove your N battery, pop the new one in, screw the cap back on and you’re good to go! *I also suggest you remove the battery when the product is not in use as it could corrode and kill your bullet.
Final Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars
In regard to things I didn’t like there were a few, though I really don’t think they are that big of a deal and like many of my other reviews, I’m just nit picking.
1.) All of the products collect lint like you wouldn’t believe. If that’s something that bothers you there are a few easy solutions; you can store them in an air tight container to keep them away from dust and pet hair, wrap them in a link free cloth or store them in the case they came with. Problem solved!
2.) The biggest complaint I keep hearing from other reviewers is that they aren’t the strongest. Considering some people are very sensitive the Little Secrets are still very good, they’re just not on par with most hand held wandsor other extremely powerful vibes. Try to keep in mind they’re not supposed to be – they’re bullets. On that note, I’ve always been able to achieve an orgasm using them…and I’m a devoted Fairy Wand/Hitachi girl, which should say something.
*For the record, I was actually very happy to see that they used one of the more powerful bullets on the market – the RO-80mm Chrome Bullet which I have included in previous posts because I’m such a fan.
3.) If you’re like me and want to keep the packaging you might not like how hard they are to get out of the containers they come in. I literally ripped the tops of the boxes off my Kiss, Tease and Spoon, while also breaking a nail in the process. I actually don’t fault the company for this as I’m known for having a hard time getting products out of their packaging, especially if they have lots of tabs etc.
Finding the right vibe is often a challenging quest. Whether it’s finding one in your fave color, a specific shape or design, certain range of power, or any other benefit/feature there’s usually quite a bit of time and effort that goes into the hunt. Fortunately the Little Secret have 5 within the line to choose from – all of which are very reasonably priced – allowing you to test and try them all without breaking the bank.
Taking into consideration the fact that each of them is exceptionally body safe, light weight, easy to use, odorless, water-proof, whisper quiet, wonderfully smooth and supple, doesn’t hurt, is very discreet and comes beautifully and respectfully packaged the only real challenge you’ll face is choosing a color and design that you love.
If you’re interested in any of the other products in the Little Secret line I suggest you head over to Tantus where shopping for body safe dildos, vibes, butt plugs and other badass finds is easy, affordable and your privacy is always respected!
