Joyballs are made from high grade silicone that is hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free. The texture is smooth with a little bit of drag. You could say that the toy is slightly sticky. The retrieval loop is highly flexible and feels quite rubbery. The balls themselves have a slight give, but are pretty much firm. Both balls are bendable enough to bend back onto one another.
The toy smells like lemon dusting spray, and has no taste whatsoever.
Joyballs are made up of two egg shaped balls, held together by a retrieval tab that encircles the entire toy. Inside the eggs are weighted balls that have a trampoline effect when jostled. They essentially bounce off the walls, creating an intense vibrating movement that provides deep pleasure.
The toy is about 4.5 inches long. You should insert the entire toy with the retrieval tab facing outwards. The circumference is about 4.25 inches. The toy only weighs about 0.3lbs.
I used the Joyballs around the house and for masturbation. Perhaps it is just me, but whenever I stand they feel a little pokey, and I do not enjoy them. So, I used them during masturbation. While I was masturbating, I could feel my vaginal muscles flexing around the Joyballs. It was intense. I could feel my muscles getting a little tired and, before I knew it, I had done a complete vaginal workout. Talk about a pleasurable workout! Just pop them in and your body does the rest! Instant workout.
To clean, simply wash with a toy cleaner or soap. If you intend to sterilize, wipe down with rubbing alcohol, put in the top rack of your dishwasher and run without soap, or boil for three minutes and remove with tongs to a towel. If you intend to share, you should sterilize the toy. Covering with a condom could alter the workout results.
Store the toy in the pouch it comes with away from other silicone toys.
Use only water based lubes with this toy.
Joyballs come in a simple, silver, cardboard box complete with instructions in multiple languages. A detailed pamphlet with illustrations is also provided in almost every language. Inside is a pamphlet of products made by Joy Division. A sample of lube is provided that is highly favorable during exercise. It is thick and stays where you put it. The toy also comes with a silver, drawstring bag that is perfect for storage and travel.
The box is good for gifting but not good for storage.
To use, simply insert the Joyballs as you would a tampon. Insert them all the way in with the retrieval tab facing the opening of the vagina. The balls will resonate with your movements, and your muscles will have to work to keep the balls in. Exercise the vaginal muscles for about ten minutes before pulling the balls out with the retrieval tab.
