Alumina Motion

XCritic's Advice: XCritic Pick

Tantus has long been known for its amazing pure silicone toys, but their new Alumina line of aluminum dildos is a new breed entirely. If you are like me, and the word "aluminum" makes you think of a can of Surge, stop right there. This is beautiful, soft, brushed aluminum like you would find on metal picture frames or nice kitchenware. It can be sterilized using the same methods as silicone. According to the booklet that comes with the toy, this is "aeronautic grade" aluminum, so it must be good, and the aluminum is anodized, which strengthens corrosion and wear resistance.

I don't really know what "aeronautic grade" means, but I can tell you that the aluminum feels amazing. It has a wonderful silky texture to it that feels unlike any other sex toy material. It's not smooth like glass or soft like silicone. It's close to rubbercote, but not quite, and more hygienic. The Alumina Motion is 8 3/4" long, with a girth that ranges from 1" to 1 1/4". It's about the same weight as a glass dildo, but not heavier than a stainless steel dildo. It feels very, very sturdy and -- unlike the majority of toys on the market -- can last a lifetime with proper care. Also, the aluminum is a deep fuchsia color that is very pleasing to the eye. Even my boyfriend was impressed by the sheer beauty of this dildo.

The documentation also promises that aluminum holds temperatures very well. I knew this to be the case when I received the Motion on a snowy day and it was absolutely freezing right out of the box. It comes in a slim black cardboard box with a silvery outline of the dildo's shape on the lid.

The Motion was not about to warm itself up anytime soon, so I ran some hot water over it before I used it the first time. To my delight, the aluminum held that heat very well.  I played with my clit first, and the Motion was still warm when I picked it up to use it. I inserted the smaller, graduated end, and gasped at the sensation. The arrow-shaped bulbs create a unique feeling that I haven't experienced before The bulbs are small, but they're mighty. When I inserted the toy about halfway, the opening of my pussy was greeted with some unexpected stimulation from the black O-ring (material unknown, though I would guess rubber). Could things get any better? Well, yes. When I finally tore myself away from the small end, I wiped my juices off the Motion and turned it around to use the large end. That was a treat as well; it filled me up very nicely.

Since I received the Motion, I've consistently used its smaller end for warm-up stimulation, and I'm in love with it. I've used it without warming it up first and have been extremely impressed by its temperature-holding abilities. The heat my pussy creates on the inserted end actually travels all the way to the non-inserted end, and the Motion begins to feel warmer than my pussy. It's really fucking sexy.

Now, I'm sure you're wondering about the best feature of the Alumina line; the interchangeability of the parts. XCritic was crazy enough to send me both the Motion and the Revolve, so I can report thoroughly on this feature.

Fortunately, although the toys feel very sturdy, they are also very easy to screw apart (even for a weakling like me who has trouble with jars). There is a hole in the end of each piece where a silver screw can fit. The black O-ring is not attached to anything, so it really is possible to screw together any combination of pieces you desire.

I enjoyed this feature because the one ball end of the Revolve functions very well as a handle. The interchangeability also allowed me to choose the thickness that I wanted for the middle of my Frankenstein's monster dildo. I like some thickness to stimulate my vaginal opening, so I found that putting together both graduated ends made for a fulfilling romp with the pointier Motion end.

Despite all that fun, both the Motion and Revolve stand on their own as different dildos with different strengths. The Motion excels at warm-up stimulation (with the small end) and at making me feel full (with the larger end), while the Revolve is good for G-spot play. Owning both definitely has advantages. If nothing else, it makes me feel like a sex toy inventor. Hello, dream job!

I was extremely impressed by the Alumina Motion. It's a snap to clean, easy to sterilize, and will last a lifetime. The aluminum is hefty yet silky, and holds temperature better than any toy I've ever used. Both ends offer unique and worthwhile stimulation. The smaller end particularly rocks; I keep coming back to it again and again for warm-up thrusting. The fact that the Alumina line is interchangeable is the icing on the cake. The Alumina Motion is basically perfect, and thus has earned the distinguished honor of being my first XCritic Pick.
