Basic Probe That Gets The Job Done

Bottom line: This toy delivers what its name promised. It is a basic anal probe, it's simple as that. It has no special features like vibrations, or weird textures, but that is not the point. This toy is specifically designed to be a beginner anal probe to help introduce someone to anal. It's smooth, flexible, and made of a firm material. This toy delivers everything it promises. Bravo Cal Exotics!
Basic design, very smooth, good sized handle
No special features, might be a bit small for more advanced people

useful review


The Beaded Probe from Cal Exotics is a very good toy because it's straight forward in its design. Specifically built as an anal probe, it is very smooth, yet firm, but pliable enough to ensure comfort. Use is simple. Make sure to always use lots of lube and gently insert one ball at a time. Due to its design, its not too small or too big in both length and width, so it's perfect for beginners.

Material / Texture

The material it is made of is TPE. It's is very smooth to the touch, firm, but pliable. The texture combined with lube makes it quite smooth. There is a slight chemical smell to it as well, but you have to have your nose right up to the toy to smell it. There is nothing too amazing about the texture, but that is the point of this being a basic probe, so this is definitely a beginners toy.

Design / Shape / Size

I really like the design, because it is exactly what the name implies: Basic. The shape is straight forward and simple, making sure to not be overly complicated with bells and whistles. It has one probe in the end followed by four graduated beads that max out at about 2". A big 2" handle at the end ensures that you do not "lose" your toy, which is a very important thing. Being only 7 1/2" long, and only 5 1/2" insertable because of the handle, the smaller length is great for beginners. As long as it's not a bight color you choose, this toy can be quite discreet if you play your cards right.

The best part of this toy is that it is basic. It's built as an anal probe and does its job perfectly. I guess as a side note, you could say that what is not so great about this toy is that it has no special features like vibration, interchangeable sizes, or something like that. However, this is designed to be a basic probe, so you should expect that there wouldn't be anything like that with this toy.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

TPE is a pretty straight forward material. Warm water with some antibacterial soap works well. It is easy to clean, and the plastic casing the toy came in is great for storage. Make sure to only use this toy with silicone and water based lubes.

    Wow, your response to this thing is the polar opposite of Kkay's. Go figure, what works for one person is just painful for another.

    Thanks for the review.

    Wow, I hadn't seen this before. Thanks for the review!

    I just cannot see this one getting any job done! It looks so painful! Definitely, as Jimbo Jones said, the opposite of Kkay's!
  • Hardware
    Well this is a beginner item as i stated several times. My girlfriend likes it because its a firmer toy that not too big that she can gradually work further with. To each their own!
  • ToyTimeTim
    What size is the first bulb? With a two inch diameter at the end it does not look to beginner friendly.
    Glad it works for you.
  • Kkay
    Out of curiosity, you mentioned your girlfriend being new to anal. Have either of you gone past the third bead? Wondering if the drastically different experiences are because of that, or if it was just me with this toy.
  • Hardware
    She got past the third bead. With anal, you have to be gentle. So yes, it took some time, but she did get past the third bead and all the way to the fifth. Many people react differently to anal. Its probably just that this didn't work for you.

    I like seeing from your POV as someone using it on someone else. Thanks.
