Tantus Hank

Another dildo from Tantus! It’s slightly on the smaller and realistic side – it is similar to the Tantus Mark O2 but can it surpass the small one with more than just size?

Tantus Hank was sponsored by Tantus Inc for an honest review. This does not in any way sway my opinions in this review. Affiliate links used.

The Tantus Hank is a quirky looking dido. The shape is great, and the size is just right so that anyone could enjoy it, but those balls are odd-looking. Kind of like sun-dried tomatoes and that does not appeal to me very much. The balls are so small and narrow that it does not add to the stability of the toy, rather it can easily wobble from side to side. And the asymmetrical design limits the use when it comes to harnesses for those interested in that.

Hank is on the smaller end of the scale being ever so slightly longer and thicker than Tantus Mark, which happens to be one of my favorite small dildos. It measures in at: 6 1/2″ in length, 5 1/4″ insertable with a girth of 5″ – 4 1/2″.

Unlike other realistic looking Tantus dildos this is not made in O2 material. Dual density dildos are squishy on the surface yet rigid on the inside. Compared to those Hank just feels rigid. The head feels completely firm and the shaft feels only slightly softer. It should be the perfect combination for G and P-spot stimulation, but I just don’t feel it. The texture is rough and not at all what I usually expect from Tantus. It feels more like the texture you would find on sturdy plastic stuff like remotes etc. On the positive side, it holds on to lube well – but it still produce more drag than I prefer.

Insertion is hassle free as it has the gradually tapered design I like for anal use. And the firm head helps ease the penetration (as it won’t bend out-of-the-way), even though it is the widest point of the toy. My butt is a bit confused as it usually loves this kind of design. Take Tantus Maverick or the Fleshlight Freaks Alien for example. Both offer the same basic tapered shape, and feel great. Stimulation wise, Hank is just ok, it has a few ridges along the shaft but they are very subtle. I just don’t get excited when using this. It is not a bad toy by any means, it’s just feeling subtle with more drag than I crave. And for people who enjoy more or less drag it might be a good fit. For me though, I’d go with Mark for a smaller toy or Adam if I wanted something slightly larger. They both offer the velvety texture I have come to expect from Tantus’ toys, and the awesome squishy heads that I love.

Tantus Hank is easy to clean and maintain with water, soap and sex toy cleaner. For thorough cleaning it can be boiled a few minutes or placed into the dishwasher as any other Tantus toy. It is also seamless, non porous, odor free and completely body safe.

I think Hank could go from ok to great with a pair of nicer wider balls for stability and visual sparkle, topped off with a smoother surface texture with less drag.

If you want one, it can be bought from Tantus Inc. for the net amount of $83.34. I am a huge Tantus fan, and I do recommend their toys but I would suggest that you take a look at some of their other awesome toys as well.

  • Hi again!

    I had Hank before they redesigned it. It used to be completely matte–no shiny head! But it looks like everything else is the same. It’s a shame, they really could’ve made great improvements. I feel the same exact way you do about this one. It’s just not a good dildo. Making the head so big when the material is so hard and stiff was not a good idea. The whole shaft just has very little give which makes fast thrusting a no-no. The texture wasn’t pleasant. This dildo actually caused me discomfort to be honest, and I really haven’t had any dildos do that before (and I’ve tried had big ones too).

    It’s just not a great dildo, especially when compared to their O2 line like you said. I personally LOVE Mark, and I’d pick him any day over Hank. If they made this one out of O2 then it would’ve been better, but I still dont like the overall design. It’s just weird and not good for a dildo. And yea the balls are too small.

    Have you tried out Tantus’s other O2 dildo, Max, yet? It looks pleasing to me.

    • Hey! This pretty much sums up everything I wanted to say with the review. It’s probably made for someone completely different than us, and it might be good for that someone – but there are so many other great Tantus toys out there, so I’ll just pretend this one was lost. It makes me wonder what the idea behind the design is!
      No, I haven’t had the chance to try Max, but I may get one in the near future. I always want to follow reader requests and suggestions! It’s probably great as something a little bigger, and I haven’t had anything other than great experiences with O2 dildos. That makes it very promising.
