Not your typical lovebead!These are a great staple for lovers of anal stimulation. They are affordable and offer pressure that's just right and extremely pleasurable. The material leaves something to be desired, but for the price, I can't complain.
Affordable, easy insertion
Hard to clean, stiff tip
These are fairly standard anal beads which definitely do the job if you're a fan of anal beads. They are cheap, pretty and feel very nice if you're into anal play. They are intended to be inserted and then pulled out when you climax, but I personally enjoy moving them around using the first 3 inches or so. I wouldn't suggest these for people who are experiencing anal play for the first time, but perhaps someone who has tried something smaller and wanting to graduate to something else. These are also a great standard set of beads for anyone who enjoys this particular type of anal stimulation. The tip is a bit stiff and can have a "pokey" effect once inserted to a certain point (which will vary from person to person).
These are made of a very firm jelly. This jelly is almost hard at the tip where the beads area smaller, which is bad and good at the same time. On one hand I like the firmness when trying to insert them and when moving them in and out. On the other hand, once I'm trying to insert the more flexible and larger beads, the stiff tip begins to get uncomfortable and feel more like a poke than a pleasurable probe. Since these beads are made of a jelly material, they are also hard to clean and aren't the safest material to use. I store mine in a plastic bag and inside a drawer. The jelly is firm enough that they won't flex and bend too much, so tearing shouldn't be a problem.
I REALLY love this style of anal toy. The only thing about the design I would change would be to have a more flexible tip. Not exactly flimsy, but something that will bend with the body a bit easier. The graduated sizes are just right and the length is quite nice. There's a nice curve in the body of the beads which puts light pressure, allowing you to feel exactly where the beads are inside of you. Perhaps this is a gross way of putting it, but it feels amazing.
This is good for those who have already started experimenting and looking to try something a bit longer with larger beads or for those (like me) who are just HUGE fans of this toy-style. They travel fairly well and store pretty easily and are a good staple for any toy chest that belongs to a lover of anal pleasures. The general use for these is fairly simple. They are to be inserted and then SLOWLY pulled out at the point of climax. I personally also like using them in conjunction with a vibrator pressed against the beads that are still outside my body. This sends vibrations up the line of beads and feels WONDERFUL. Aside from being hard to clean and a bit too stiff once inserted about (for me) 4 inches inside, I love these!
When it comes to lubricants, do not use a silicone lubricant. This will cause the material to degrade. Finally, do not share these! It's very difficult to work a condom into the use of this product and this jelly likes to hang onto bacteria. Be sure to clean them really well with antibacterial soap or toy cleaner and rinse well. It's also a good idea to try to store them in a drawer or cabinet where they are less likely to collect dust and lint.
These come in a plastic clam-shell like package with a little paper insert with product info and whatnot. No directions are included and the package isn't worth keeping. I just decided to store mine in a bag. The box just adds too much bulk. It's not pretty or fancy in anyway. It's as standard as they come.
Follow-up commentary 13 months after original review
These aren't the best, but they are good. Of course the material could be safer or more comfortable, but it's cheap and easy to replace. I do wish the beads were a bit shorter. By the time I get to the larger beads, the strand is too long to work without the end feeling pokey. Not cool. Otherwise, it's a fine product.
