Review: Black Widow Connoisseur Harness by TantusOphilia and I sat down to talk about the Tantus Black Widow Connoisseur Harness. We recorded our conversation and are presenting it here both in audio form as well as a transcription.

Cooper:
Today we’re reviewing the Black Widow Connoisseur Harness from Tantus. This is also sometimes called the Spiderman Harness.
Ophilia:
I did feel like fucking superhero.
Cooper:
It looks like Spiderman. This is made out of leather and it’s really, really soft leather.
Ophilia:
Premium leather and it actually feels premium. It’s extremely soft.
Cooper:
The interior of it, it’s two leather panels and then leather straps and the leather panels have spider web overlay and the inside of those leather panels is some of the softest leather I have ever felt. I’m not a rich man.
Ophilia:
You don’t own a lot of leather.
Cooper:
I don’t own a lot of nice soft leather. Premium leather.
Ophilia:
I can even say that the leather corsets that I own are not that soft and you would think a corset should be soft, but whatever.
Cooper:
So speak to ease of use.
Ophilia:
It was actually very easy to get on and adjust. It was very loose in packaging and had to be tightened. The panels that go around the thigh and sort of hug the butt were very easy to actually tighten and because it’s leather, they hold that loop very well. The buckles also were very easy to slide over and adjust around the waist, what you would consider to be the belt part of it.
Cooper:
I remember when we put it on, it wasn’t difficult to adjust quickly to…
Ophilia:
In the heat of the moment, which we weren’t. We were in a much more experimental mood, but it was easy to get an assist on adjusting that buckle and it was very quick.
Cooper:
It also does have these straps that go between your legs that are separate so it can be used as a harness while still providing easy access.
Ophilia:
Yes and I was able while in use when it kind of, you know, needed to be adjusted for different positions, I was able to grab those straps that go between the legs and around the thigh that reach forward. I know there’s probably a term for that strap for all you harness makers out there, but I don’t know what it is.
Cooper:
Let us know in the comments.
Ophilia:
So I grabbed those straps and I was able to adjust it and tighten it in order to get in position for the play that was taking place for my partner’s body. There you go.
Cooper:
Now one thing that we did with this harness that I don’t know that it was meant for, is attached to the front panel are two ‘O’ rings that attach to the large straps that go around your waist.
Ophilia:
Which I assume they’re for bondage, possibly decorative purposes, but
Cooper:
But we slid two of the smaller Tantus dildos through them so at one point Ophilia was rocking three dildos at the same time and they were really excited.
Ophilia:
They didn’t know which one to sit on.
Cooper:
They didn’t.
Ophilia:
They wanted to play sort of a strange game of whack-a-mole and just bouncing up and down. Pick which cock you’re going to come down on.
Cooper:
The front of the panel has snaps that go around a rubber… um..
Ophilia:
‘O’ ring
Cooper:
Silicone ‘O’ ring. They go around a silicone ‘O’ ring so you can replace the ‘O’ ring with others for different sizes. This a good size and it worked with every dildo we threw at it. This is a really solid harness. You can’t 100% sterilize leather. You can get close. Give me the education. Drop some learning on me.
Ophilia:
Okay. I was reading on how people try to get gross spills out of leather and usually it’s upholstery of some sort so if you have kids or animals, I remember we were talking about all kinds of bio-hazard waste here that could be possibly…
Cooper:
Kids do produce a lot of bio-hazard waste though.
Ophilia:
They could get it all over the leather interior of your car.
Cooper:
Very true.
Ophilia:
Or the leather interior exterior of your couch. There are a lot of tutorials on how to wash leather and I believe some of the methods which include massaging a soap, which is an emulsant that should remove all, all dangerous bio-hazardous waste, but I would have to say that if you look at the harness, there are a lot of nooks and crannies in the construction because of its ornate decoration and design so if you are an extreme germaphobe, then I suggest before use cleaning, after use cleaning. Use the tutorials of massaging the soap in and you should be fine. I don’t think that it’s actually as big of a concern when I first thought oh dear God, a leather harness. Why? Because I’m thinking to myself that I have multiple partners and multiple partners probably don’t want to be all swapping fluids. That’s a thing. It’s called fluid bonding and you have to negotiate that.
Cooper:
Let me ask you. Your preferred harness up to this point has been the RodeoH brief. The Joque is another one. That’s the Sportsheets harness. We’ve used a variety of harnesses, but your definite preferred harness was the RodeoH.
Ophilia:
Yes and that’s the pass through capability. Now, I hacked this one. With my hack and I know this isn’t a hack that many women out there know this I’m sure that you can internally insert a dildo while you’re wearing a harness. I inserted a vibrator while wearing this harness and it stayed in place because of the secure panel on the front of this harness.
Cooper:
You could probably easily use just a dildo with the base facing the other way on the inside.
Ophilia:
Exactly, you absolutely could. You can even add straps that could hold it to the other side. It would actually be very easy to make a double ended dildo out of this particular harness.
Cooper:
That’s for the hackers. Sex toy hackers.
Ophilia:
For the people with some arts and crafts that know how to go to Michael’s and look at those little leather panels that people probably put on costumes or make jewelry out of and you’re like, hey that’s going to go on my dildo or that’s going to go on my harness.
Cooper:
But comparisons. You’ve used the RodeoH and how do you feel about this? I know you were skeptical initially.
Ophilia:
The only skepticism I had was with the cleanliness and after reading many websites on cleaning leather upholstery, I feel much more safe in the use of the leather. Leather is not as scary as far as cleaning wise. In comparison, I still like having one solid cock that goes inside me and into my partner. I feel that’s still my preference, but if I’m going for things that would not be one solid cock, I like the hack that I came up with.
Cooper:
Sure. This is really nice.
Ophilia:
It’s gorgeous. It is a piece of art that you are wearing. I felt like a super hero wearing it and everybody told me I looked like a rock start and I kind of felt like one. There’s something about wearing nothing but this that’s got its appeal.
Cooper:
How would you rate it? Thumbs up?
Ophilia:
Thumbs up.
Cooper:
Cocks up?
Ophilia:
Would try again. Would try again, would purchase, yes. All three cocks up.
Cooper:
Share.
