Review: Tantus Alumina Pace

After trying the Dai-Do #2 I kind of fell in love with Aluminum for toys.  It’s hard like steel, but warms up much more quickly.  Since then, I had really been wanting to get my hands on one of the Tantus Alumina line and FunWares was kind enough to send me the Alumina Pace.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Anal In-ie
  • Manufacturer:  Tantus
  • Materials:  Aluminum
  • Size:  5″ long; 2.75-3.75″ insertable; 1.25″ in diameter
  • Price:  $51.95
  • Pros:  Sleek and discreet packaging that’s also good for storage; Aluminum; Interchangable with others in the line
  • Cons:  Not great for vaginal penetration; Only good for intermediate anal users; Pointed end can cause discomfort
  • Overall Rating: 3/5
  • Recommended: Yes, but only for intermediate to advanced users

The package

I was very happy with the packaging for the Pace.  It comes in a small, sleek back box, very different from the typical clear plastic boxes from other Tantus toys I have received.  The writting on the box is silver and there are several silver outlines in the shape of the toy over the box.  I really doubt anyone would know what it was for without turning it to look and read the side that has the product information on it.  Even then it mostly talks about the material, not what it is actually for.  When you pull the lid off there is a block of foam on top of the toy and the toy itself is resting in another block of foam.  It’s very well protected.  The box is small enough that I would probably keep it stored in this box.  You may pull all the foam out and keep a few toys in there if you wanted to.

The Pace

The toy itself is made from solid aeronoutic grade aluminum.  It’s much lighter than steel but is just as body safe.  It’s also compatible with any type of lube.  The only thing I would watch out for with lube is there is a rubber o-ring between the two portions of the toy.  It says that it is a silicone ring so I would probably avoid using silicone lubes with it, just to be safe.  The toy itself is about 5″ in total length with about 2.75-3.75″ being insert-able.  The maximum diameter is around 1.25″.  It tapers to a fairly sharp point and does have a bit of a handle with a small sphere on the end.  Like the other toys in the Alumina line the handle unscrews from the head of the toy allowing you to interchange them with the other toys in the line.  Between the two parts is the o-ring and you will want to make sure it is in place before inserting it.  To clean you’ll need to take it apart and clean all three parts and let it air dry.  You can clean it with soap and water, toy cleaner, bleach, or by boiling it.  If you’re going to bleach or boil it I would still recommend taking it apart.

The pieces

The Pace is designed to be an anal plug, but I had no intentions of using it that way.  I hoped that it’s bulbous head would work for g-spot stimulation for me.  However, it wasn’t quite long enough to work properly and the point could become uncomfortable.  As I have no experience using anal toys on myself, I did not try it anally.  The very pointed tip should allow for a very easy insertion.  The only thing that worries me a bit is there isn’t much of a base.  If you are inexperienced with anal toys I would opt for something with a larger base than the small bulb.  If used anally I would be sure to clean it very well.

Overall, I think the Tantus Alumina Pace would work well for those looking for metal plug that is lighter than steel for intermediate use.  It wasn’t very satisfying for vaginal use, but some of the parts may work better vaginally when combined with the others in the Alumina line.  FunWares sells the entire line including the Revolve, Flow, and Motion.
