extremely useful review


Let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of kegel balls, and have been delighted to see the huge leaps forward they have taken over the last few years. I prefer connected balls, since the loose sets tend to send me on a twisted and awkward sort of treasure hunt in my own vagina. I was thrilled to find Lelo released a set of balls with silicone connectors and extraction string; I was even more excited to find it was a modular system, and immediately knew I had to try it! As with most Lelo products, the Luna Pleasure Bead System exceeded my expectations.
The instruction booklet states the primary purpose of the Luna System is kegel exercise, and it's an exceptionally effective at strengthening the kegels. The modular system is a brilliant innovation, providing gradual kegel toning for beginners, kegel maintenance for experienced users, and discreet pleasure all around.
The Luna System offers the user a wide variety of options for both exercise and stimulation tailored to the user's experience, or even just her mood. There are two sets of balls--a lighter pink set of 24 grams 1 oz) each, and a heavier blue set of 37 gram (1.3 oz) spheres. The difference in weight is noticeable, especially for beginners, but the heavier set isn't so heavy as to be unfriendly to users. Each set of balls includes one loose ball, and one ball with an attached removal string. Beginners (or experienced users just looking for a little stimulation) can use just one ball at a time, starting with a lighter pink single ball, then progressing to the heavier single blue ball. It's a gentle introduction to kegel exercising items for most women, and can carry her through to mastering her kegel strength--all the while, providing her with gentle, but increasing, stimulation.
The set also comes with a brilliant piece Lelo calls the 'composition girdle,' a silicone holder for the plastic balls. This allows the user to customize a more advanced exercise device, combining the balls in different configurations. The girdle has an opening on one end for threading 'retraction leash' through the hole, providing the user a convenient way to remove the beads. Starting with the lighter set of pink beads, the user can then progress to one ball of each weight--placing the heavier ball deeper in, then moving it to the outer position, providing strengthening benefits to different locations within the vagina. Finally there are the two heavier blue balls, providing the most weight and resistance to the user, and bringing her to have a good command of her kegels.
Kegel exercise is good for any woman, because pelvic floor strength can help increase the intensity and duration of orgasms--always a plus, at any age! Strengthening the kegels is also extremely beneficial for women after pregnancy, any woman suffering from urinary incontinence, and women undergoing hormonal changes due to birth control or aging.
While the Pleasure Bead system is made of non-porous material, and has an extraction string, I would advise against using this product anally, since the string is not very long, and could be easily lost in a rectal contraction.

Material / Texture

The Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System is made of a combination of plastic and silicone. The balls are made of ABS plastic, and the girdle is composed of silicone. All materials are food-grade, phthalate-free, and non-porous. The balls and girdle have no odor or taste (not that there are any good reasons to put them in your mouth). The silicone has a silky texture, and the plastic balls have a lovely, light-pearlescent sheen. The balls do have a pronounced seam that is mostly hidden by a textured banding surrounding them. When placed in the girdle, however, they can be turned so they are covered by the stretchy silicone holder. The plastic balls provide a good casing for the weights inside, giving them a firm texture to 'clack' against and provide satisfying stimulation when the user is moving. The silicone harness texture is smooth and silky, very comfortable for the user, and provides a secure housing for the beads.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Luna Pleasure Bead System is superb. It is very customizable for all levels of experience, and it serves equally well as a kegel exerciser and a 'Ben Wa'-like pleasure device. It is a very discreet stimulator, and can be worn almost everywhere without drawing attention. The firm-but-pliable composition girdle provides a smooth and gentle holder for the beads, and the beads are of uniform size to fit in the silicone girdle. I think it would travel well since the bead movement is fairly gentle, but knowing the TSA, you might want to think twice about putting them in your luggage. The size is comfortable for me, so I think it appropriate for all users, though total newcomers might be a bit intimated by the 1 3/8" diameter and 4 1/2" circumference. In my opinion, though, the size helps with the kegel toning, training the vagina to hold the beads comfortably and securely.

I love the modular capacities of this product, how it can help strengthen the kegels for beginners and veterans alike, focus of different areas of the vaginal muscles, and take beginners through to experienced users with just the one set. The Luna system performs exactly as I want it to, providing both useful toning and discreet and ongoing stimulation. The only downside to this product is the possibility of bacteria building up in the crevices if the balls are not removed from the girdle for cleaning, and the need to make sure the seams of the beads, the inside of the girdle, and the extraction string are cleaned thoroughly between each use. I also don't recommend sleeping with them, but that's kind of a personal preference--not going to sleep with anything in any of my orifices.

Care and Maintenance

As noted before, this product is made of food-grade, nonporous, phthalate-free materials, and is also hypoallergenic. There are crevices between the beads and the girdle where bacteria can build up, as well as around the extractor string, along the seams of the ABS plastic balls, and inside the girdle. I highly recommend removing the balls and cleaning all parts of the system after (and before) every use. Use only water-based lubes with the Luna beads, because the girdle and extraction strings are silicone, which can react badly with other silicone products. The instruction manual also advises against using cleansers containing alcohol, acetone, or petrol. The box includes a satiny storage bag to keep the system free of dust while storing.
    • Easy to store
    • High maintenance


The packaging is top-notch, as I've come to expect from Lelo products. The black box insert displays the girdle and both sets of balls under a molded plastic cover, and a discreet black cover with only a muted 'LELO' logo on the front. The black box arrives in an outer sleeve that displays the product and describes many of its designs and functions
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Personal comments

In addition to providing great kegel training, the Luna beads are configured like traditional Ben Wa beads, with free-moving weights, and they provide the deep, discreet, internal stimulation that has made these balls a favorite for women for hundreds of years. I love to wear them while doing housework, and even more when I'm going out for the day or evening. I've got the strength to use the heavier bead combination, and I have a deeply satisfying feeling when wearing them in public. They're not something that will get me on their own, but they can keep me 'ready' all day, just in case. ;) Even if 'just in case' never happens, they still make my day far more enjoyable. It's hard to not love a product that intensifies orgasms while effortlessly toning my vaginal muscles.

I really love the stealthy aspect of weighted vaginal beads. There's something so wickedly perverse about walking through the supermarket as they discreetly rumble inside me. Kegel exercises can be discreetly performed without any external equipment, but these beads produce better results with less effort required on my part. The Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead System is by far the best set of vaginal beads I've used, both in terms of exercise and discreet internal pleasure. I highly recommend this product without hesitation!
