Bend Me Over Anytime

If you are looking for a good versatile set of anal beads these are a good choice. They have a nice look to them, are made of an easy to clean material, and have nice variation in size along the strand. The first few beads can be difficult to insert because the material is a bit floppy, but if you do not mind some extra work getting them in then these are a great choice.

Use

Bendy Beads by fun factory is a set of anal beads, or could potentially be considered an anal probe. This toy is meant to be inserted into the anus. Both of the sensation of inserting the beads and removing the beads creates a "popping" sensation that people find pleasant. Anal beads are a good for beginners. These beads start out very small and are soft and silicone meaning they are very forgiving and let the user work up to a size at their own pace. Anal beads to be a bit easier to use than plugs or dildos and are a good starting point after fingers. The toy has a nice handle on it that will prevent the toy from being inserted too far and being lost in the rectum. So you can use this toy easily without much caution.

Anal beads can be fun for foreplay, masturbation, or during intercourse. Some people like the sensation of removing them just as the are having an orgasm.

Material / Texture

Bendybeads are made out of 100% silicone. Silicone is one of my favorite toy materials for a lot of reasons. Firstly it is extremely body safe. It is hypoallergenic, latex free, phthalate free, and non-porous. Because it is non porous it is extremely easy to clean. You can use just soap and water In porous materials bacteria can live in the pores and then it is impossible to clean, because sometimes the soap and water will not reach them. With a non-porous material there can only be bacteria on the surface of the toy, so cleaning with soap and water will kill all of them. The toy has no odor and no taste (if you have just washed it of course) which is nice. If I am going to use a toy anally I do not want it to retain any odor. Silicone is rated a 10/10 on EF's safety rating and for good reason. Silicone is a great material.

The toy had no odor to it. It smells like silicone I guess which has a very faint odor, but nothing you notice unless you put your nose right up against the toy.

Bendybeads do have some texture to them. There is kind of an artistic design to them and there are ridges and bumps along the toy. The texture adds some slight change of sensation but nothing drastic. I find they still have that "pop" sensation as the beads go in and out of the anus. It is slightly different than other beads, but is not overly intense.

The toy is quite soft. The silicone has a bit of give to it. You will notice it is a bit floppy, but I will describe that in performance.

Overall I would consider this to be a beginner toy. It could be used by someone who is newer to anal sex because of its small size. It also has a nice soft end. I have had some anal beads where the end is pointy and that creates discomfort. The end of this toy (the smallest bead) has a nice smooth end that inserts nicely.

    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The Bendybeads are approximately 10.25 inches in length. Of that 7.5 inches are insertable. The beads on the toy start out small at 0.75 inches and get bigger up to 2.0 inches.

The shape of this toy is quite whimsical. It could be described as 5 ovals connected with a snaking vine along the beads. The shape of the toy works well. It provides enough stability to be made out of silicone (which is a great material) will still providing that characteristic feel of anal beads. The snaking vine along the beads adds some slight texture that creates a pleasurable experience.

When I used this toy it worked well for me. The biggest issue is that silicone is very flexible, so inserting the first 2 beads can be difficult to push them in. You need to stick your fingers along the sides of the beads. If you try and push from the handle the entire toy just bends and no force causes the beads to be pushed into you. That is the only flaw with the design. The material is great, but comes with that downside.

The toy is a good fit for average users. I think beginners to advanced users alike will enjoy this. It is a bit small for those who really enjoy anal stimulation though. The toy I think would best be described as whimsical and artistic. It has a funky look to it.

I think when you look at this toy most people would know it is anal beads and that the toy is not very discrete. It is also quite long, but you can store it bent in half.

Performance

Overall this toy performed quite well. It provides a nice sensation of when inserting and especially when removing the beads. The beads are nice in terms of the rate at which they get bigger. It makes it quite comfortable to slowly get larger.

My favorite part of the toy is just how it feels. It creates some unique and pleasurable sensations that dildos and plugs just cannot provide.

My least favorite part is that it can be hard to insert. The bendyness of the toy makes it difficult to really put force behind it. Once you get 2 or 3 beads in it is easy. But the first couple need to be inserted by pushing the bead itself and not the handle.

Overall it performed very well and I have only had fun experiences playing with this toy.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because this toy is made out of silicone it is very easy to maintain. After every use I wash mine with warm water and anti-bacterial soap and it stays very clean. If you are going to switch partners with it you can also sterilize it either with a 10% bleach solution, boil it for three minutes, or stick it in the dishwasher on the top rack with no soap. The "vines" on this toy can be slightly difficult to clean and you might need to spend an extra minute to two compared to some other your other toys. But it is still easy to clean.

Silicone toys are best to store away from each other. They can actually damage each other if they touch each other. This is fairly uncommon, but I think it is still a good practice to store them separately. I just use Ziploc bags to store them.

This toy is made of silicone and therefore should not be used with a silicone based lube. It should only be used with a water or an oil based lube.

The toy can collect dust, so a quick rinse before use is never a bad idea, but I think that holds true with just about every toy.

Packaging

The toy comes in a Fun Factory Box. On the box you can see the anal beads and there are some pictures depicting how to use it. Inside there are the beads and a small insert showing all the products Fun Factory makes. Overall the package looks classy and nice and could be used for a gift, but I would not consider it discreet.

The box would work well for storage, but the box is quite big. I personally just store mine in a Ziploc bag.
