Spheres of PleasureI cannot praise these enough. Despite the occasional pinch (2 pinches in a month of frequent use) these balls deliver. My orgasms are stronger and while wearing them I do have to say that there is a bit of an extra spring in my step. They provide a tiny bit of frequent thrill which can be the beginnings of one amazing night. The multi-weight system makes these a great choice for vaginal exerciser newbies all of the way up to seasoned pros, unless you're picking up bowling balls or crazy stuff
This toy is for vaginas only. Don't put this in the butt. It might eat them and then you'll be out a LELO toy and have things stuck up there. Neither is a situation that I wish to encounter.
They exercise your Kegel muscles (which are not found in your butt anyways) without sitting there, bored at work or in class, and realizing you haven't done them in a couple of days. In fact, they exercise your muscles FOR you. I don't know about you, but I like products that make my life easier and do things for me. My dishwasher and I are having a love affair. A remote car started would be great if anyone wants to volunteer. So how do they do this work for you? Well, besides magic, they force your body to hold them in AND these metal balls roll around inside of a plastic ball (It sort of reminds me of hamster balls). When they do this it causes your muscles to contract ever so slightly, which makes you get a buff vagina eventually. At least, this is what LELO says and I would like to believe them.
The beads are firm and do not offer give, you may need a tiny drop of lube or so to help with insertion if you are not naturally well-lubricated. Rest assured, after leaving these in for awhile, you probably won't need any lube to slide them back out.
They are a little on the large size but, like I said, a bit of lube should make them pretty easier to insert.
Pleasure Beads are rather discreet. If just the beads are in plain view you could easily pass them off as cat toys, provided you have a cat. You'd probably get a weird look if you don't but hopefully no one really would push the issue. The enclosed harness is a bit more tricky but you probably could pull that awkward conversation off.
Air travel in the United States with these beads inserted is probably a very bad idea. The ball inside is stainless steel, which does occasionally set off metal detectors, if you're fortunate enough to only go through those. The scanners would probably detect them and you'd be given a lovely pat down and forced to answer a lot of uncomfortable questions. Stow them in your luggage or leave them at home. If they're in your bags no one will really know what they are and you'll be fine.
The feeling of the ball ratting around was more prominent when I stepped harder. Walking across new and fluffy snow generally does not yield a whole lot of movement while quickly walking across concrete shakes things up a bit more. Running and jumping makes for a delightful little party. The stimulation is generally not enough to really do too much but enough so that you are frequently aware of the balls. I find that I enjoy wearing them when I know that I have an exciting night coming up. They add a nice level of awareness and anticipation that when things get moving on that evening it becomes that much more delightful.
While I was a bit skeptical of the beads' effectiveness once I saw their larger size and realized that my muscles wouldn't be doing as much work, I have found that they do make a difference. I can certainly feel a difference in the intensity of my orgasms with regular use.
The one thing that I have found occasionally happening that is less than spectacular is that they occasionally pinch. I'm not 100% certain what exactly is pinching since it's generally remedied before I can go somewhere to fix it myself. It doesn't last long but it definitely takes me by surprise.
LELO does not recommend using a silicone-based lubricant with these as it may damage the girdle. Water-based are recommended.
These come with a satin bag for on-the-go storage. You can stuff the girdle and all four beads in it if need be, but it makes for a rather lumpy, awkwardly-shaped, and noisy bag. I recommend keeping the beads that you are not currently using inside of the box.
As a side note, these should not be used during pregnancy according to the instructions. I am guessing the the frequent contracts could result in some uterine stimulation or that they may potentially introduce bad things inside. I'm not entirely sure of the reasoning.
The instructions are very thorough and helpful, complete with a diagram of the location of the inserted system.
