The Tantus Little Flirt was made to be the perfect anal toy for beginners of any gender. Made of body-safe silicone, the Little Flirt‘s design makes it non-intimidating and very comfortable to use.
At one point, I had a toy much like the Little Flirt, but it was TPR and the base was much more flexible. Aside from having my butt spit the thing out, it also sucked it up once. Yes, I had a vibrating butt plug stuck up my butt, and was trying not to panic. I was eventually able to relax enough to have a bowel movement and get the thing out, but you really have to be careful with anal toys, lest they go up your butt and you have to go to the ER to get them removed.
I asked Babeland if I could review the Little Flirt because it looked like such an improvement on what I once had. Not only is it a much safer and more hygienic material, the base has better flare and is much thicker and more stable-looking. Plus, it’s made by Tantus, one of the very few manufacturers that has my absolute trust when it comes to the safety of material and awesomeness of toy design.
The Tantus Little Flirt arrived in typical Babeland packing; a plain UPS box with the return address as “Mail Order”.
It came in Tantus’ standard packaging. Pretty much all Tantus toys comes in packaging very similar to this. Information about the company and silicone are provided, but there’s nothing in particular about the Little Flirt on the packaging, or cleaning/care instructions. Instead, you’re directed to the Tantus website. The plastic is fairly durable, and you could reuse it as storage. Of course, it’s not discreet.
All Tantus toys are hand-made in the U.S.A. from the highest quality 100% Premium Platinum Silicone (If cared for properly, they will last a lifetime). That means they’re hypoallergenic, hygienic, phthalate-free, latex-free, odorless, tasteless, boilable, bleachable, and completely nontoxic! They are also manufactured 100% green.
Texture / Firmness
The Little Flirt has no texture to it; it’s just smooth, glossy silicone. A matte finish would hold onto lube better, so I suggest a thicker water-based lube.
It’s actually pretty plush and easily bent with just one hand. That means it conforms to my body-shape, and makes it comfortable no matter what position I’m in or what I’m doing. (It may look big in my hand, but I have tiny hands. My size 4 wedding ring barely fits without slipping off.)
Water-based lubricant is recommended. Silicone lube can be use, but Tantus advises a patch test beforehand.
Size / Design

- Neck Diameter: 1/2″
The rounded tip is about the size of an average pinky finger, and the bulge in the middle is about as thick as an average thumb. Depending on how small of a person you are, or how virginal your anus is, the difference between the bulge and neck may not be enough to keep the plug in.
The rectangular base is meant to keep the toy from going all the way up your butt, and was designed to fit easily in-between butt cheeks. I’ve heard a few people complain about it not being comfortable, but it’s fine to my husband and me. He’s a very large man (6’5”) and I’m a very small woman (5’1”), and neither of us has felt that the base is uncomfortable in any way, be it sitting, standing, walking, or various sex positions. It has the Tantus logo stamped on it, which could use a little more attention during cleaning.
Since I’m rather petite, the Little Flirt is a great toy for me. It’s just enough to be felt, and is very comfortable. It’s fine for me to sit on it while I’m writing reviews, or to wear it around the house getting my chores done. If I have my tush in the air, it feels good to have it move in me while I do kegels.
The only downside is I have issues keeping it in during sex. Sometimes, if I want it to stay in, either my husband or I have to hold onto the base. It would be nice to not have to do that.
My Husband’s Experience
He really doesn’t notice it at all. The first time I had him wear it, he pretty much forgot about it. He said he’d probably just wear it for half an hour, but he ended up wearing it for a couple hours, not realizing it was still in.
Since he’s a rather large man and is used to bigger things, the size of the Little Flirt didn’t really do much for him in terms of anal stimulation. If you’re looking for a prostate toy, this isn’t it.
You can boil the Little Flirt for 5-10 minutes, stick it in the top rack dishwasher on a regular cycle, wipe with a 10% bleach solution and rinse, or simply wash with a mild soap and water. Allow it to air-dry, or wipe it with a lint-free towel before storage. Toy cleaners and wipes are also fine.
Keep the Little Flirt somewhere safe from dust and hair, where it won’t get squished or touch other toys. You can keep it in a bag, a toy storage unit, the box that it comes in, or wherever it will stay safe and clean.
The Little Flirt is a great plug for anal beginners, or for those who just want something small and comfortable. If you’re more experienced with anal, or are just a bigger person like my husband, I’m not sure I’d recommend it, as I’m not sure you’d feel it. Also, there is a possibility that it could slip out during orgasm.
I’ll probably be the one using the Little Flirt, since my husband can’t even tell it’s in him. I tend to prefer toys of a smaller diameter for anal when he’s penetrating me vaginally, so this is perfect.
