"Pleasure System"? Well, it's not a lie.

I haven't noticed a difference in kegel strength or orgasm intensity, but these feel pleasant and sometimes remind me to do my exercises. Even though I'm not wowed, I still think they're fun.

Use

I suck at remembering to do kegels. I'm just not motivated to do them most of the time. (Typing this is reminding me that I should...I bet I won't for the whole review.) I stumbled on these while looking for some vaginal exercisers and decided to go for it.

The idea is that you wear them while you're walking around and the constant wobbling of the inner balls reminds you to do your kegels, or makes you do them subconsciously because the balls don't feel stable and you want them to stay in. I don't know how much good they do when I'm not actively squeezing around them, but they do encourage me to go a couple more kegels than I normally would be doing. I normally put them in before I go on walks and remove them when I get home. Insertion and removal are my least favorite parts. I use a menstrual cup, so I'm used to poking things around in my vagina. The L'Amour balls are a tiny bit larger in diameter than my Diva Cup. Have some water-based lube nearby. There's a good chance you'll need it. I typically have to squat or lift a leg to get them in, too. Retrieval is a bit easier, you just tug on the ungodly long cord. Then you tug a bit harder because it stretches. Then, in somewhat of a rush, the balls come out.

I don't think this would get lost in your butt because of the long cord attached, but I don't recommend putting it there. The silicone is super stretchy. You have to give it a good long tug to retrieve the balls. Sometimes they're a bit uncomfortable coming out because there's no way to slowly tug on them. I can imagine this discomfort being magnified if you used them anally. So don't.

Don't poo with them in, because they will probably fall out. That's gross. Actually, don't use the bathroom at all with them in. The cord is pretty long and you will hit it. It's silicone, so you could clean it off and not die, but..come on. You're a grown up, don't play in your own excrement.

Material / Texture

The product description, both on Eden and the packaging, wants to imply that this is a silicone toy. In reality, it is a plastic toy with silicone cords. The plastic at least appears to be high quality. There are no smells, and it's glossy. Always a plus with things that you want to slide comfortably into your vagina. There is a teeny bit of decorative raised ridges on the sides of the balls that I haven't been able to feel while using them.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

I was in the market for a smaller toy. This is probably the biggest kegel exerciser that I've seen. I compared it to the product description of the Smartballs and L'Amour comes out a bit longer. Four inches of it is insertable, and the other four inches are all cord. I've gotten over the size of the balls. They don't feel unpleasant like I assumed, but the cord could be snipped and not lose any function. If you're wearing a dress or shorts, make sure you tuck the cord into your underwear. It will escape. Questions will be asked.

Speaking of questions, how can something with such obvious seams be described as 'seamless'. There are seams running fully around both balls. There are seams running around where the silicone cord is inserted in three spots, and there are seams on the silicone itself. The only ones that bother me are the ones around the cord, since the silicone is so stretchy. I worry that I can't clean it out all of the way and a mutated vagina-juice army will crawl out later.

I absolutely would not recommend these for beginners. They are, for something you can wear for hours at a time, giant. They require a large amount of comfort with your body that many beginners are on the way to discovering.

Performance

I knew about what to expect with this from reading reviews on similar products. The inner balls moving around do feel like gas the first time. It feels so much like gas that I would stand up, forget I had them in, and assume that's what it was until I took a few more steps. As I wore them more, I learned to distinguish between the feelings.

Reviews also warned of taking subways/buses with them inserted, as the vibrations get intense and you can't take them out until you reach your destination. I was left disappointed in this area. I'm not sure if it's me or these type of balls, but I couldn't feel them on a bus or on a subway train, even if I stood. I never thought I'd be disappointed by public transit not turning me on.

I actually don't get turned on from wearing these, but walking down stairs is particularly fun. I like having bouncing, rolling little secrets.

I was thorough in my testing and in all of my social interactions I felt sure that nobody had the slightest clue that I was wearing anything in my vagina. You can't hear them when you move. There was a time that I was laying on a friends bed with my legs in the air and could swear that I heard them when I laughed, but if you're in that position and they can tell the noise is coming from inside your body...it's probably safe to tell them what it is. It's not like I was in a business meeting, or in a position appropriate for one.

Aside from the design of the cord (too long and stretchy) and the size of the balls themselves (big!), I think this is a really good product. It's stimulating, but not so much that you can't go about your day as normal. It seems to be durable. The shiny plastic has remained shiny with a week of nearly constant use. The plastic doesn't appear to be in danger of cracking. I periodically give the cord a good stretch to see if it rips, and so far it has not.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet sound
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Since the majority of the toy is plastic, I wouldn't recommend boiling it or putting it in the dishwasher. California Exotics says to wash it with soap and water or a toy cleaner. You do HAVE to wash the balls after every use. This isn't something you can just place off to the side and get to in the morning. They are always covered in your vagina juice when you pull them out. Always. Covered. Sometimes it cakes into the seams and I have to get my fingernails or an old toothbrush in there to clean it out. You have to with most toys, it's just annoying on a toy that proclaims to be seamless.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging is classy with no naked women or mention of genitalia. It's described as a 'premium weighted pleasure system' on the front and 'love balls' on the side. In fact, the box doesn't tell you exactly where this 'pleasure system' is meant to be used or for how long. I understand that they were going for the classy side of vague, but I believe that packaging should contain information. There's no paper insert. Nothing. My partner is familiar with the different types of vaginal exercisers and was still thrown off by the lack of information and the term 'pleasure system'. I don't really consider kegels a *pleasure* activity, and while it's possible to masturbate with these, I wish there was some attempt at education from the manufacturing end.

I used the plastic box as storage for a little while because it's compact, but I've recently bought a toy box for myself that I let these roll around in now. It's good for storage if you have one or two things, but not if you have a small collection. I feel bad about wasting the plastic. L'Amour is a good line. Information and recyclable packaging would make it even better.

Follow-up commentary
I've had these for a year and still use them pretty often. Nothing has broken, nothing has changed colors. I'm pleasantly surprised!

So far, my favorite place to wear them is to work. I move around a lot and having a secret cheers me up.

    That's weird. Maybe it's a side effect of the site being all revamped? I don't believe it's been like that for a year and nobody has told me.
    I'm not sure that I can even go back and edit this one anymore. Wow.
