Product Review: Zing by Tantus

February 27th, 2010

zingOoo, what’s that?

One day, ages ago, we decided to go on a hunt for a new butt plug.  The one we owned, at the time, was jelly.  We’d had it a while and it had begun to deteriorate, as jelly tends to do.  So we decided on a better material, which led us to the Zing by Tantus.

How’s it made?

The Zing is made of silicone.  Mine is purple, but it comes in copper, black and pink as well.  it’s nonporous, phthalates and latex free and hypoallergenic.  The surface is smooth, and the material dense but a little squishy.

The Zing is about four inches long and an inch and a half wide.  It’s rather light.  The bulbous end shrinks down to about an inch before flaring out into a wide, circular base with a hole in the center for the bullet it comes with.  And it’s ribbed.

To be honest, I don’t remember much about the bullet.  It wasn’t waterproof and I managed to kill it in a matter of weeks because of that.  But I’d already looked up a replacement and found one cheap, so I didn’t really care.  It took three watch size batteries.  That’s really all I remember about it. 

What’s it for?

Zing is a textured anal plug with an accompanying vibrating bullet.  Both the bullet and the plug can be used vaginally, if you so choose.

How is it?

I hate it.

I didn’t hate it right away.  It was way better than the jelly thing we had before it.  I would have taken anything over that.

It’s almost always uncomfortable on insertion.  I cannot stand the ribs.  They’re uncomfortable and… just not for me.  With the vibrations, they were barely tolerable.  Without them, they’re not at all.

Besides, Pfun has me, hook, line and sinker.  And Ryder’s a close running second.  I like ’em smooth, and sometimes curvy.  You can keep the ribs.

How do you care for it?

You can boil the Zing, or put it in the top drawer of the dishwasher.  But you might want to weigh it down.  Wash it with antibacterial soap or toy cleaner.  Use water based lube and clean it between uses, partners and orifices.

Where’d ya get it?

I bought Zing from some sleazy local sex toy shop, but you can buy it straight from the manufacturer.

    Jeeze, those ribs are pretty intense, I probably wouldn’t like it either. I wouldn’t give up on Tantus plugs though! I have a tantus B-bomb, I love it.

    @ K2theF Oh trust me. I’m not. I have a ton of Tantus. A TON.
