Uberrime Tentare Tentacle We-Vibe Tango Sleeve – Sex Toy Review
When I was thinking about my Spooky Month line-up thus far I realized there was a severe lack of anything monster/alien themed… thank goodness Uberrime sent me the Uberrime Tentare Tentacle We-Vibe Tango Sleeve… I mean…. come on… what’s Spooky Month without at least one tentacle themed toy?! Also… I’ve kind of got a thing for tentacles… some of the first porn I remember watching was tentacle laden Hentai. My roommate bought a DVD from the “Anime” section at an FYE store at the mall… this clearly was not just anime… it was Hentai… and we laughed and laughed… then had sex… because apparently we were super turned on by it. I’m pretty sure we knew exactly what we were getting in to when we bought the DVD… it obviously wasn’t just some innocent anime… but we feigned ignorance. And it’s not just Hentai monsters that have tentacles… oh no… SPOOKY HALLOWEEN MONSTERS… they have tentacles too!
Uberrime Tentare Tentacle We-Vibe Tango Sleeve… well that seems awfully specific doesn’t it… Yeah, it does. Although I feel reasonably certain that if you were to put a bullet other than the Tango in this sleeve that nothing would happen. I do not believe that this is a cursed object (although… I don’t know what Uberrime has been up to these days)… I don’t think you will be defiling a sacred space thus summoning a horde of demons into the world if you were to insert a different bullet… it just may not function at 100% of its potential … since it is designed around the We-Vibe Tango. I’m only guessing though… because I own a We-Vibe Tango… so I’m not taking any chances… my home will remain demon free this October. Although, I am sure that whatever curse is on the Tentare (again… it may not be cursed…but who knows…) will be lifted after Spooky Month… because that’s just how things work. So don’t panic. If you’re worried, just buy your Tentare Tentacle on November 1st.
I don’t have a whole lot of experience with bullet sleeves… off the top of my head I can only think of the Rocks-Off Ramsey Rabbit. Oh, wait… no… Blush has a whole series of bullets with silicone sleeves… I’m just blanking on the name. Give me a second while I search my own web page for bullet vibrators… (I’ve reviewed a lot of toys, so give me a break… I can’t remember everything all the time)… Here we go, the Blush Aria Mi Vibe, Blush Aria Buzz Bunny, and the Blush Aria Hot Tongue, I knew I had reviewed a small number of sleeved bullets. Also, I had to search through two pages of bullet vibrators to find those… so I also learned that those are literally the only bullet sleeves I’ve tried. So I guess what I’m trying to say in my characteristically long winded way is that I’ve tried a small number of bullet sleeves… some have been excellent… others… well… they were a bit of a let down. The biggest issue with a bullet sleeve is often the silicone of the sleeve will dampen the bullets vibrations to much… rendering it useless to me (because I’m all about a vibrations power) but sometimes… sometimes you get lucky and find a sleeve that will actually enhance the use of the bullet vibrator. The Uberrime Tentare has definitely proven itself to be of the enhancement variety… (thank goodness… I didn’t want to be the one to break it to Uberrime that his toy sucked… I’m 99% sure that he is an otherworldly dildo demon sent to earth to craft dildos that tempt and torture me).
The Uberrime Tentare is a rather sizeable sleeve, like… someone hacked off a good chunk of whatever horrid sea beast this was a part of. It is a total of 5 inches long, with about 4.25 inches worth of insertable length. The shaft of the toy has a max circumference of 5.85 inches while the head of the toy (or would that be the hand of the toy… it is a limb after all…) has a circumference of 4.2 inches. After all is said and done, it’s really about the size of a small dildo. I mean… you can technically use it as one… so call it a dildo if you want (even if its still technically a bullet sleeve). The Tentare turns your external Tango vibrator into a textured experience… that can be used both externally or internally (because why should clits get all the fun)! I’m not really sure if I would call this anal safe or not… there is a flared base… but its not hugely flared… the base doesn’t extend out much further than the last ridge. So I guess, I wouldn’t personally recommend this as an anal toy (no one wants to go to the ER to explain why there is a monstrous tentacle stuck up their butt) but use your best judgement. If you are looking for a more obviously anal safe, tentacle-esque experience may I recommend you look at Deep Diver, the Xenuphora, or heck the Jellyfish 2.0 I reviewed not that long ago has a tentacley like nature to it!
The Tentare is hand sculpted (Uberrime pours his blood, sweat, and tears into these molds) and is hand poured from silicone. The shape of the Tentare is… well… its shaped exactly like I imagine the tentacle of some kind of ancient demon sea beast might look like. Like, imagine an octopuses arms… now imagine that octopus fell into a drum of radioactive waste that was dumped into the bottom of the ocean. Now imagine that that radioactive octopus has hulked out into an angry sea demon… and imagine when angry it can like… detach the first 5 inches of its pointy death arms and shoot it at you… yeah, that’s about what the Tentare looks like. So, the tip of the sleeve is a little bit pointy… not like… going to stab you pointy… but it does come to a definite point. There is also a small cupping shape to the head, which makes a nice little nest for my clit. The Tentare is a HIGHLY textured toy, the entire front half of the body is covered in little suckers while the back half of the toy is made up of a series of very pronounced ridges (giving it a spine like effect). The overall shape of the sleeve does kind of mimic the shape of the We-Vibe Tango, now that I think about it (just with more terror built in). The bullet hole (the hole in which you insert the bullet) is rather deep, I shoved a finger up there and it seems to run the length of the body…so like… if you see the suckers on the shaft, the hole runs pretty much that deep… stopping just below the head of the toy. It is also quite stretchy… so even though this does specifically name the We-Vibe, I think you could work other bullets into the sleeve, I tested this out with the Rocks-Off Touch of Velvet Bullet and it was able to fit into the hole (I know I said I wouldn’t… but I like to live dangerously)… and so far I have summoned no demons by doing so. Okay, so I have read other reviews (not of the Tentare specifically, but of other silicone sleeves/dildos with bullet holes) where the writer has recommended a dab of lube before you insert the bullet… but lube can sometimes create a seal or suction of the vibe to the toy. If you are having trouble removing your bullet from the sleeve push, don’t pull! I know… that sounds like crazy talk… but if you just pull, it’s like a Chinese finger trap and the silicone just grips tighter to the bullet. So the trick I learned is to use your thumb and start pushing it out of the shaft while wiggling the vibe back and forth. If you really feel like you want some extra help, you can dust your bullet in corn starch or similar powered to try and prevent drag. My six (or is it seven) odd years of reviewing sex toys has culminated in this moment… where I can pass this torch of knowledge on to you… you’re welcome. And now, like the Wizard in Shazam, I can disappear, having found a new champion of this power.
While the head of the Tentare has that perfect cupping shape to it… a shape that really screams “PUT YOUR CLIT HERE”… I found I actually preferred to use the very point of the toy to stroke my clit. I also very much enjoyed running the back side (with those spiney ridges) up and down my whole clit-ticular area (that’s a word, right?). The massive amount of texture also makes the Tentare a fabulous toy for some shallow penetration… I loved feeling each of those ridges going bump bump bump as I slowly insert the toy… feeling all of that amazing texture rubbing up against my vaginal entrance. It also transmits vibration surprisingly well, I honestly thought it was going to really dampen the power house that is the Tango… but it really didn’t. I still felt the Tango’s delicious rumbling vibes coming through the tip of the Tentare. One of my only complaints about the Tango is that the hard plastic can sometimes feel uncomfortable as I jam it hard against my clit (because sometimes a person is in the mood to just really jam it hard… get those vibrations traveling deep into the clit)… the Tentare’s silicone body turns the Tango into a softer, more plush experience. Your experience may very depending on the type of bullet you choose to use… a buzzy vibrator will obviously still be buzzy after inserting it into the Tentare… while its an awesome toy… it’s not magic, it can’t turn buzz into rumble.
Cleaning this chunk of dismembered tentacle is easy, since it is silicone you can toss it into the dishwasher (no soap), boil it, use a 10% bleach solution, or just go with the good old soap and warm water option. I thought, because of all the texture, this was going to be a bear to clean… but its really not. I’ve been washing mine in the sink and all the gunk just flushes right out… I have yet to break out the sex toy cleaning tooth brush I keep for textured toys that hoard goo. Also, being silicone, it is recommended that you steer clear of silicone base lubes… instead opt for something like a water based lube.
It’s probably worth a quick note… if you are buying this toy direct from Uberrime it is called the Tentare but if you are buying this from SheVibe they call it the Uberrime Talon or Dragon Claw (depending on the color you choose)… because I guess they are fancy like that. It is still the exact same thing… just… when the Tentare arrived at SheVibe it was so happy to move out and leave Papa Uberrime behind (YOU’RE NOT MY REAL DAD) that it decided to reinvent itself… you know… like how we all had that Goth stage and insisted our friends and family all call us Black Moon Raine… it’s like that… only with Dragon Claw. Also, I would now like you all to call me Dragon Claw… cause that is way cooler than Black Moon Raine… not that I ever insisted anyone call me that… cough cough. But yeah, Dragon Claw and Talon = Tentare… no matter who you buy from, it is the same toy (just one is having an identity crisis).
I can 100% recommend the Uberrime Tentare Tentacle We-Vibe Tango Sleeve. The design of the Tentare, with all of its ridges and bumps and lumps and suction cups makes it such a visually appealing and versatile toy. You can practically create a new experience every time you use this toy just by rubbing a different section of its textured body against your clit! It is also possible to use the Tentare both externally and internally, which is awesomely versatile… and if texture is your thing, you really will be in heaven, trust me. Sadly, the We-Vibe Tango is not included… so you’ll have to already own a Tango or similar bullet in order to “activate” the vibrating powers of the Tentare.
The Uberrime Tentare Tentacle We-Vibe Tango Sleeve was provided to me free of charge by Uberrime in exchange for my honest review.
