3 Cheers for Rhapsodia

The Rhapsodia is unlike any other anal product. It features three graduated balls with inner weighted balls. The balls move around when you do. Talk about new sensations. Let me make the intoductions. Butt, this is the Rhapsodia. Rhapsodia, this is the butt. Enjoy!

extremely useful review

Use

The Rhapsodia is primarily used as anal beads. However, you can also use them for vaginal penetration. Even though this is made from non porous materials, please use a condom on these anal balls. A lot of lube will be needed for the Rhapsodia. The balls are somewhat flexible, which might make it available to use for P-spot stimulation. It really depends on the person, and the body. The kicker here is that each ball has its own inner weighted ball! They remind me of kegel exercisers, only for your butt! Storing and traveling is easy, because the Rhapsodia comes with a velvety pouch. This toy is not for the faint of heart. I would not recommend this toy to beginners. These balls are perfect for warming up with your partner, during sex, solo, and for long term wear.

Material / Texture

The Rhapsodia has an ABS plastic base with a non porous TPR cover. Obviously both materials are non porous, but they are not silicone. I still highly recommend using a condom during each use. This toy cannot be disinfected by boiling, or putting it in the top rack of the nearest dishwasher. However, TPR does have some positives. Water and silicone lubes can be used with these balls. In my opinion, TPR is very low maintenance compared to other materials. The balls are very hard, and have no give. The spaces between each ball and the stem are pure TPR, which makes it flexible and comfortable. TPR has no smell or taste.
The Rhapsodia has a visible seam, and each ball has a number 2 on the front. I could not feel either when it was inside of me. Other than that, this toy is very smooth.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The design is the best part of the toy. The Rhapsodia consists of three balls. Each ball has its own inner weighted ball that moves when you do. There is little space between each ball, which may be troublesome to some. The total length of this toy is 8 1/2", but only 5" of that is insertable. The first two balls popped right in. The third ball was the exact opposite of easy going. It took my husband and I 30 minutes of patience and tons of lube before I was able to take it in. I have been in the intermediate stage of anal play for about 4 months. For these reasons, I cannot recommend this toy to beginners or even new intermediate users of anal toys. I was concerned the stem would be way too long, but it nestled right between my butt cheeks. There is a heart at the end of the stem to prevent losing this toy in your bum. The stem is very flexible, so my hubby and I learned to hold it by the base of the third ball for easier insertion.

Performance

I can easily feel the moving of the each inner ball when I wear this toy. It does not take a huge movement to get them rattling around. It kept me stimulated and aroused all day. Everyone will experience something different when using this toy. Again, it depends on the person and their body.
I have used this toy for long term wear only once. While most of it was smooth sailing, I did run into a problem. After about 2 hours of running around town with this thing in my butt, it became very uncomfortable. I rushed to the bathroom, and took it out. I think the problem was the heart at the end of the stem. It was irritating the outside of my anus. If I had had lube, I could have resolved this issue. I have yet to try wearing it out again, but next time I won't forget the lube!
If you take the Rhapsodia out of the package, you will hear the balls move around. However, I could not hear it when I was wearing it out in public.
I have used this a number of times for double penetration. My husband was in my vagina, and these were obviously in my butt. It felt really comfortable for me. The sensations of the inner balls bouncing along with me was unlike anything I have felt before.
    • Discreet sound
    • Semi comfortable

Care and Maintenance

It is easy to take care of the Rhapsodia. Simply clean with warm water and antibacterial soap. After cleaning, I let it air dry before storing it in the storage pouch it came with. Water and silicone lubes can be used with these anal balls. Thanks to the smooth TPR, any lubes and bodily fluids wash right off.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging for the Rhapsodia is definitely drool worthy. The front is a magnetic flap that opens up to show the Rhapsodia through a plastic window. There is a picture of a lady holding the product on the front of this flap. It is a seductive picture rather than the usual offensive pictures. When the package is turned to the side, you will find two drawer like slots. One is labeled Rhapsodia, and the other is labeled Accessori. When you pull the Rhapsodia drawer out, you will find the product itself. The toy comes in black or violet. I got mine in violet, and it is gorgeous. The Accessori drawer holds all of your free goodies given to you by Close2you. The goodies include a velvet pouch for storing your Rhapsodia, a toy cleaner in the form of a wipe, a stretchy cock ring, Close2you's lubricant called Glissando, and an instruction manual full of Close2you's products and cleaning instructions. The instruction manual is very thick, because there are 10 different languages included. Both the cleaning wipe and the lube have a scent. I did not find it too overbearing, but it may cause problems for those with sensitive noses. The storage pouch has a drawstring to keep the toy from escaping from it. If you want to store your Rhapsodia, you can. I much prefer the pouch, because I am short on storage space.
