Use

Fun Factory's Teneo Uno Smartballs are designed to strengthen the vagina through extended wear. Simply insert the Smartball into your vagina at the start of your day (or any time you are going to be active and running about). While you move, the metal ball inside the silicone ball moves about. This causes the pelvic floor muscles to respond reflexively. In this way, you are performing Kegel exercises without actively thinking about it.

The Smartballs can be for any woman. Strengthening these muscles can give you better muscle control, allowing the wearer to have stronger and easier orgasms. Strengthening these muscles can also facilitate labor. This is because the muscles used to "push" are the same ones that contract during orgasm. In contrast, they can also help nurse back the vagina after pregnancy and delivery. The Teneo Uno can help women with incontinence. As you can see, kegel exercises and aids, like the Teneo Uno, can help in a variety of ways.

The Teneo Uno is only designed for vaginal use. You can wear the Uno during solo play if you desire. This uno does not have a flared base and is designed for vaginal strengthening. Therefore anal play is not advised.

Material / Texture

The Smartball exterior is made out of silicone. The silicone has a velvety feel. While the silicone feels soft, the ball itself is hard. It gives very little when you squeeze it. It is textured with a swivel-like layered design distinguished by its two colors. The texture allows for extra grip and feel. The texture is also felt during insertion, thus adding lubricant before placing may be essential for some.

The Teno Uno is hollow. The interior has a dense, metal ball the you can hear and feel if you shake it. There is a retrieval loop at the base that is a few inches long to allow for easy removal. It is easy to hide, similar to a tampon string. Also at the base of the ball is an indent designed for fingers to push the ball in. The indent also has the Fun Factory logo on it.

There is no overt odor to the Teneo Uno.

Design / Shape / Size

The Teneo Uno is .4 pounds, which is substantial. You can feel the weight holding it in your hands. The size is doable. It may be a bit large for some, at a circumference of 4.75 inches, especially if you are used to only placing tampons in your vagina for an extended time.

The overall shape of the Uno allows for the ball to be held in the vagina throughout the day. When you first insert your Smartball, you may feel hyperaware of it. This is because you vagina has never experienced such a device (if this is your first ball). You may not feel the Uno at all after a while, akin to a tampon. Overall, its presence should not be irritating or distracting. If you move about quickly, you may feel the vibration of the inner, metal ball as it moves around. Simply wearing the Uno might encourage you to actively squeeze your muscles and do additional kegels.

The Uno is very discreet. It cannot be heard and is impossible to detect if you are not the wearer. This makes it excellent for travel. However, if traveling by plane, it is possible that the inner, metal ball will set off a metal detector (that is something you probably don't want to explain).

Performance

The simplicity of the Uno is wonderful. You essentially set it and forget it. Funny how one can equate roasting times with a vagina, bit I digress...

I have a couple of "ehs" about the Uno. These could be because of me personally or these can be more wide range issues.

If I need to use the restroom, I have to remove my Uno. I know that you technically don't have to, but it bothers me. I'm the same way with tampons. If you are like me, you might find it inconvenient to remove, clean, and reinsert your Uno multiple times in a day. Especially if you are away from home the majority of the time. I keep some wet wipes with me when I'm on the go. This way I can wipe the Uno before reinsertion. Since I give it a good cleaning every day, I feel this is okay for cleanings throughout the day.

The Uno may also feel too big/uncomfortable for some. The Uno isn't as long as dual ball systems, which may be a plus for some. Its width also doesn't seem to be wider than many of the other balls out there. It depends on the individuals anatomy to an extent, but I think the Uno can work for a majority of women. It might also feel uncomfortable during removal. There are a couple of ways to make this easier. First, it is essential to relax those muscles. Gently tug at the base of the loop, and push out a bit if you need to. Another fun way to remove the Uno is to orgasm. This can be a good way to remove them at the end of the day. Nonetheless, the removal/insertion becomes easier overtime as you get used to it.

If you're not used to tampon usage and removal, I would recommend trying that before investing in any vaginal weight.

Care and Maintenance

Being a fully silicone toy with no electrical components/motors, many cleaning options are available to you. You can boil the Smartball, so long as it is done for at least a few minutes; this will keep it sterile. Or you can use wipes, toy cleaner, or soap and water. I wash my Uno with soap and warm water and dry it with a cloth. Even though the Uno is silicone, it does not appear to be a lint magnet. This could be due to my color choice or that I use it every day, but I barely see anything collect on it.

Storing the Uno is simple due to its small size. When not in use, it can easily be put in a drawer or toy box. If you wish to be more discreet you can place it in a small makeup bag or pouch.

Being silicone and that it goes into the vagina, I would recommend only water based, vagina friendly lubes. You're best off with glycerine-free lubes if you need lubricant for insertion. This decreases the chance that you will have a reaction to your lube over time. Reactions can be slight, such has having increased discharge or itching, but this can quickly become irritating or worsen. Please be aware of how your body responds to any lube you choose.

Packaging

The Teneo Uno came in the typical Fun Factory style box. It has a flap with a magnetic closure that details instructions and usage of the toy. There are also paper instructions in addition to the packaging. Of course, with all Fun Factory products, you are also given a small packet of Toy Fluid (lubricant). The package is not intended for long term storage and is not discreet.


    • Includes toy fluid
    • Very informative

Personal comments

Overall, I find the Uno user friendly for many types of women, no matter what their reason is for "leveling up their vagina" or pelvic floor muscles. It has a retrieval loop, which makes it preferable for women who don't want to insert their fingers in to their vagina (like one would for regular, cordless balls). The Uno is low maintenance and your body does most of the work for you.

I feel issues described above such as initial discomfort, etc. can occur with any vaginal weight system. Through repetitive use, you can become accostomed to the feel and mechanics of the Uno. As long as you use a good lube and keep the Uno clean, it should serve you well for a long time.

Experience

I have not been using me Uno long enough to report results. Generally results are noticeable after about two months. Therefore I will include my experience with the Uno after this time.

Follow-up commentary
I LOVE the Teneo Uno! I place it in almost every day when I'm going out. It's been about 6 weeks since I've gotten them and my boyfriend tells my he has noticed a difference! I also do when I grip him during sex. I can do this with more "Oomph!"

I prefer these to dual ball systems. They are simpler and easier to place. It is also fun to have your partner remove your Smartballs at the end of the day. Tugging on them before and during orgasm is a delightful experience. It is a very sexy and welcome ritual we have.

I use sliquid as my lubricant and I have had no bad reactions with my TenEo Uno or the lube. I did notice that I did produce more discharge the first couple of weeks using the Uno. After that it went to normal.

Love them, Love them!

    Can you hear the metal ball inside when you are moving? That is something I don't want. But I'm kind of interested in this one.
