You get what you pay for - Fun but better options out there

Overall for the price, I certainly wouldn't avoid buying these, although I would strongly consider other better products out there for a little more money. The beads aren't the worst thing out there. They are a little awkward inserting with the outside first knot and the hard plastic feel of the beads but do feel nice when combined with a second toy or when removing.

Pros:

Cons:
Knot on outside uncomfortable when inserting,
Hard to clean nylon rope
Cheap feel to plastic beads

The saying "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here. Not the best or the worst set of anal beads, but hey for under $10 did you really expect much more. I purchased the medium sized beads which basically is a set of four beads strung together with a durable thick white nylon rope. Each bead is slightly bigger than 1/2", all of them the same size, and made of basically a hard plastic. There is no give or what I call squishiness to the beads; they are rigid. The beads are strung together on a durable white nylon rope with knots a few inches apart, which means the beads can slide up and down on the rope until they hit the knot. There is a knot in front of the first bead which can feel a bit uncomfortable going in. The end of the beads is connected to a sturdy plastic O-ring used to pull the beads out. The feel of the nylon rope is durable which is nice since the last thing you want is the rope to break. However, whoever came up with the idea for a white rope should be fired. It's hard to clean and will probably not stay white for long (I know, not a pleasant picture). The beads come in a nice little plastic package which can reclose, so I just keep the beads in their original packaging. When she first saw them, my girlfriend remarked that the beads could make a lovely bracelet since the beads can fit inside the O-ring handle to make a little loop, so you can proudly wear them in public, although I don't recommend doing that after you've used the beads once.

Once inserted, the beads are not really noticeable. Adding a second toy certainly adds a much needed boost to these beads and actually makes them pleasurable. Without a second toy, the beads are a pleasure when inserted or removed but not really noticeable otherwise. The beads have a slight seam on them in the middle which I didn't really notice when inserting or removing, but it's there and may be uncomfortable for some.

I don't recommend sharing these beads or using them both anally and vaginally (my girlfriend was less than hesitant to try these vaginally). While the beads clean relatively easily, they cannot be sterilized like silicone products, and the nylon rope is not all that easily cleaned. The upside I suppose is that you can really use any type of lubrication for these beads including silicone based lubes.
Follow-up commentary
So these were fun for the initial break-in period, but after a couple of uses, they became harder and harder to clean and weren't really a novelty anymore. I highly recommend many of the other anal beads over this product, knowing that a little more money will get you a much higher-quality product.

    Thank you for the review. I was given these beads by an other company as a "gift." I have never used them.

    One thing to remember, I'd never use these vaginally after anal use. The string is simply impossible to get clean and I can't imagine what bacterium would be held on to by it and get transferred to the vagina. It was the reason I never used these.

    I used to keep these in a toy bag with some other toys, and finally one day My Man just picked them up and said, "WHY do we have these?"

    I think probably, they are a one time use toy, based on the fact that you can't get them clean.

    Haha, thanks for the review. I love it that your girlfriend mentioned it would make an ok bracelet.

    I am a total virgin to anal beads, so reviews like this help me avoid the bad ones.
