Since I first heard of Tantus’ Alumina line I’ve been dying to try one. Unlike all other Tantus toys the Alumina line is made out of, can you guess? Aluminum, of course. My chance came in Alumina Revolve, a smooth sleek double-ended dildo.
Every product in the Alumina line is double-ended and screws together in the middle, where that little black band is in the picture above, which means that the ends of the four Alumina products can be swapped out for other pieces to make different toys. This is a very unique design, and of course means I covet all four Alumina toys.
Also unique to the Alumina line is their packaging. Other Tantus products come in very simple packaging, but the Alumina line has an elegant black box with silver writing and the shape of the toy outlined on the top in silver. Inside the toy itself is nestled in black foam and a slim instruction/care booklet. Still simple, but with a touch of class.
Similar to glass and other metal toys aluminum has no give, so a little goes a long way as far as orifices are concerned. In my experience the harder the object the fuller the feeling you get from it, and Revolve is no exception. I found each side of the Revolve to be perfect for anal and vaginal penetration respectively.
The side with three graduated bulbs is wonderful for anal penetration, feeling similar to anal beads when used. The feeling of the anus expanding and contracting is highly pleasurable, and is my favorite type of anal stimulation, so these three hard bulbs were a delight. Graduated bulbs are also excellent for anal beginners, as well, because they allow the penetratee to be worked up slowly to larger objects.
The side with one bulb is excellent for both g-spot stimulation and kegel exercise. It can easily be angled just right to hit the g-spot, and the hard material is great for a variety of sensations from soft massage to hard grinding. The single bulb is the perfect size for me to grip with my kegel muscles and clocking in at half a pound it has a fair amount of heft without being too heavy for a beginner such as myself.
Not too long ago we had a heat wave here in Seattle, and on the hottest day when it got into the triple digits I put Revolve (along with a few other glass and metal toys) in the fridge to cool it down before slipping it inside me and letting it cool me down. It retains temperature quite nicely, which is why it was ideal for this. It can also be warmed, should you come home and find it extra chilly and not be in the mood, by running it under warm water. Simple as that.
