Best set I've tried!The Luna Beads Noir are a classier version of the Mini Luna Beads, with the highest weight combination offered in that set. They feature two 37 gram weighted balls that provide resistance to tone and strengthen the vaginal muscles and pelvic floor. These were designed for women who are under thirty and have not had any children. However, those over thirty and/or those who have had children who prefer smaller balls can use these as well.
These are not anal beads, so do not attempt to insert them this way.
These can be used during foreplay, masturbation, or worn all day while doing day to day activities. When worn during activities, the inner balls move about and can be heard while in use.
For strengthening purposes, it is best to use these daily, and the results will vary depending upon one's vaginal muscles.
The harness is made out of smooth, luxurious silicone that does have some drag to it, but that goes away with just a dab of lubricant. The harness is stretchy to allow the beads to be inserted and taken out easily, but is very well made, and no amount of pulling has broken the harness. There is a small seam that connects the two beads in the middle, but it can't be felt during use.
The beads and harness do not have any smell to them.
Due to the small size, these can easily be taken with you in a purse, bag, or pocket.
To use with the silicone harness, all you have to do is thread the retraction leash through the small hole at one end of the silicone harness. Push the foundation bead into place, making sure the edges are firmly in place and follow the imprint on the harness. Next, push the crown bead into place, also making sure it contours to the shape of the harness and fits firm and secure in the harness.
Once the desired weights are in the harness, you are ready for insertion; this is made easier with a little bit of water-based lubricant. If you are using both beads, make sure to insert the crown bead first. The crown bead is the one that does not have the thin string attached to it.
One thing to keep in mind when inserting these is to make sure they are in the proper place, or they can pinch the inside of the vagina if not properly inserted. Lelo offers tips for inserting the beads that include lying on your back and inserting them. If you experience difficulties this way, you can slightly raise your pelvis. Some women find standing with one leg raised works best for them. Lelo mentions that the beads should be positioned similarly to where a tampon would normally be placed, and don't forget to leave the retrieval string slightly out for easier removal.
Water-based lubricants are the best bet with these. Using silicone-based lubricants with this product could make the harness tacky. Also, do not use massage oil or hand creams with this product.
It is best to store the Luna Beads Noir in a dust-free area away from direct sunlight and other silicone toys. You can store them in the included black draw-string storage bag that was included with the Luna Beads Noir.
Included in the package are the two weighted Luna Beads Noir, the silicone harness, a black storage bag, sample lubricant, credit card sized registration card, and a user manual.
Lelo also has a ten year quality guarantee, where the owner may purchase a new product from Lelo for 50% off the listed price if this product messes up after the one year warranty has expired.
