That is just a myth, I have never heard any documented proof of it. I use a few toys that are in the 2" diameter range on a regular basis, such as the Njoy Eleven. I usually use about two oz of lube via a shooter to keep things slick, I have no problems with the remaining lube leaking out. Just like a vagina, the sphincters are muscles that have a lot of elastic properties. They must be trained and you have to learn how to relax those muscles. Starting out small and working you way up is the best bet.
Just remember to go slow, use lots of good lube and if you experience any pain, stop and add more lube and start over.
I should mention that it took my about eight months to get to that size, and it takes two other toys and about 30 min to get there.
The beads that you refer to are a intermediate sized toy, a beginner may not be able to use it at first.
