Metis (all powerful dildo goddess of Tantus) had a countdown to the release of Something Big at the start of the year, which I watched with increasing excitement. When news of the Little Secret line dropped she had whipped me up into a frenzy. In short order I was spamming my friends with links to the new fine hotness. Not surprising, I am a huge fan of Tantus as many of their wares hold a special place in my heart. My first dildo was the Goddess, my first toy induced G-Spot orgasm came from the Charmer, and for a very long time if you entered my home you were forced to squeeze the O2 Revolution while listening to me ramble on about the wonders of medical grade silicone.
Before we get to the review itself, a primer on why 100% silicone is one of the ideal materials for sexual accessories. 100% silicone toys, if cared for, should last a lifetime. They are non-porous, solid, with no microscopic openings to harbor bateria. Beyond the usual toy cleaning methods these toys can be disinfected with heavy cleaning agents (10% bleach/90% water solution), top rack of your dishwasher (please, no detergent), or in ten minutes of a gentle boil. When disinfected with these heavier methods between uses you can share your toy with other partners. If your toy has a vibrating component that cannot be removed stick with the bleach solution or basic cleaning methods (soap and water, toy cleaner or isopropyl alcohol) to ensure the buzz continues as long as possible.
Note: There is a difference between a “silicone” and 100% silicone which I touch on in this post from the Love U days, “Silicone” Vs 100% Silicone. CAGE MATCH
Now on to the good stuff!
Unsurprisingly I requested the Kiss as it is the most perfect shade of Fuck That’s Bright Pink I have ever seen. Kiss has a lovely teardrop-esque shape sloping up to a flickering “tongue”. Nitpick: When I think of something being tongue like I imagine a larger, flatter surface than this slim, rounded tip. Granted “flickering tip” is nowhere near as alluring and as I will get to in a moment, would not be as effective for me. Comprising of a silicone sleeve and bullet, the entire Little Secret line is built to last. In a few years when the bullet dies (as all battery powered items do) just pick up another bullet and you’re good to go.
The entire Little Secret line is powered by the Chrome Bullet, aka my favorite bullet in the history of the world. No lie, I have 6 of them. Their shape with the pointed tip is amazing, the length is much easier for me to hold than traditional bullets, and the N battery puts off just enough more power than watch batteries that I can orgasm without a problem. Completely waterproof and submergible. Easy push button. Love, love, love this bullet. Added bonus? It fits all of the Tantus dildos that have a hollow space for a bullet. Thrilling because the basic silver bullet most come with is completely worthless to me.
The sleeve is exquisitely beautiful. The pearlescent shimmer accentuates the amazing pink. Kiss has a glossy texture which I find to have less drag across the skin than the velvet feel. As always, lube increases pleasure in every sexual encounter and Water-based lubes are the friendliest to silicone toys. (There are exceptions to the no silicone lube with a silicone toy, but that is another post.) Like all my Tantus toys, the Kiss seems to pull lint/fuzz/puppy hair out of thin air. My solution is to clean with soap and water before and after, then store in the lovely packaging.
So, how is this beauty in action? Honestly, at first it was not getting the job done on a regular basis. My first use of the Kiss was rather “meh”. I orgasmed but it took quite a while and I got frustrated. Usually my clit is a lefty, so I focus stimulation on the left side. Concentrating on the left felt lovely but half the time I wouldn’t get enough stimulation to orgasm without a lot of effort. (I’m a lazy masturbator I don’t want to work hard for my O.) The other half of the time I’d get off right away. My orgasm seemed more dependent on the phase of the moon than what the Kiss was doing and I was stumped as to how I was going to write this review.
That was until I got creative. The head of my clit is usually way too sensitive to be directly stimulated. Clitoral play for me always happens through my clitoral hood. Always. Anything else isn’t pleasurable no matter how aroused I am, just painful.
So Let me set the scene: I’m laying across my bed wearing a slight frown and trying every possible angle I can think of. As I give up and start to pull Kiss away the very tip directly hits the head of my clit. It is awesome! FUCKING AWESOME! Talk about a lazy orgasm, once I discovered this trick all it takes is a little bit of foreplay, hold the tip barely on the head of my clit and I’m off. Finding a new way to climax delights me just as much as the actual orgasm.
Saying that a toy is “Great for Beginners” is often code for “this toy is cheap and was too weak to get me off”. This is not the case with the Little Secret line. These vibes are my idea of a fantastic starter toy. Well made, discreet, decently powerful, lovely to look at and affordably priced. If you know that you need a lot of power from your vibrator this may not be the line for you. However, if you’re sitting on the fence about adding a Little Secret to your life, allow me to sweeten the deal.

In case I haven’t made this clear enough yet, I am a ridiculous fangirl for Metis & everyone at Tantus. Thank you for all the orgasms over the years and not just the ones caused by Metis being incredibly hot.
