A Starter Set of Beads

I wouldn't suggest this product. Go with something a bit nicer quality. They had a nice feeling and flexibility but it wasn't enough to out way the problems.
Basic and cheap beginner beads. Large enough beads to provide nice sensations.
Hard to clean and disinfect. Manufacturing flaws possible.

This set of beads is a place to start, I wouldn't say they live up to the name of Advanced Anal 101 but they were enjoyable. I might suggest these beads as a place to start but they fall short in the material category. For usability go with a pure silicone or something that can be sterilized.

During use this toy had enough flexibility and give. As with most sets of beads the first couple weren't very notable; farther down the chain added to the sensation and the final couple of beads were nice to play around with.

Material / Texture

My Advanced Anal 101 beads have a nice bright orange color. No noticeable smell right out of the package. The beads were smooth with a nice flexibility.

The first couple beads took more force to flex then some of the other sections, if it was a feature, bravo.

I was a bit disappointed with the construction quality of these beads. My set has defects between bead 4-5 and 5-6 that I was able to feel.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The anal beads had a good size and shape for a 101 set of beads. Using them for myself, as a beginner, I would have liked to see some larger beginning beads for a bit more sensation, but the larger of the beads were enough to feel nice.
    • Beginner


Ignoring the manufacturing and just going right into the "in game review". I had fun reviewing the Advanced Anal 101 beads from Cal Exotic. They were something new that I haven't tried before. I liked the sensations more than other toys I have tried for anal stimulation, and it has definitely spiked my interest in other bead toys. It was a nice place to start.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

The TPE that California Exotic chose to use for this product makes me wonder what they were thinking. Probably price as they are "101" oriented.

Over all the product was fairly easy to clean besides the small flaws in the construction. Warm water and toy cleaner, lint free cloth to dry.
    • Easy to store
    • High maintenance


Packed in an easy to open box. Right out of the box I was a bit excited to give them a try. The problem with this packaging is that the product is bent in a fairly tight loop. This wouldn't be an issue except the beads are stuck in the packaging shape. After a while they have adjusted into a softer curve. The packaging has enough information to know what you are getting into.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

    Thanks for the honest review. I'll steer clear of these beads.

    What exactly were the defects?
  • captnjack
    They are two voids where the material wasn't completely filled into the product during the molding process. About 9mm x 5mm x 1mm.
