Silicone X-10 beads - anal beads by Cal Exotics - review by giggled

Best Anal Beads for the Price

If you're thinking of buying this toy, do it. It's affordable, well designed, and will enhance your sex experience. It's a great toy for introducing you to anal play, and lets you decide how many or how few beads you want to take on. Fair warning, though, you may be back in a few weeks to buy a plug or a vibrator.
Firm but not hard or ridged, this is a great toy for beginners.
It gets a little stinky if you don't use a condom.

useful review


This toy is pretty straightforward - it's an anal toy, and I doubt you'd find it particularly fun or useful as anything else. Though this toy is made of TPR silicone and is easy to clean, you should avoid sharing or using it for multiple orifices. Be careful when removing the toy as the loop at the end is somewhat thin and will snap if yanked hard.

Though conventionally beads are pulled out just before climax, this toy is better left inserted until cleanup. Without getting too graphic, the graduated beads are perfect for collecting anything that may be lurking about inside your rectum, and as such, trying to yank them out will no doubt be messy, and as mentioned, potentially snap the loop.

Similarly, be careful when removing them, go slow and gently and use tissue to pull out each bead. You want to avoid a boomerang situation.

Material / Texture

The TPR Silicone is soft and pliable, making this toy superior to similar toys in its price range. The softness makes it comfortable and easy to insert (no sharp ridges or hard plastic, no string to collect residue or discolor). While it's easy to clean and using it is a pleasure, it absolutely retains an odor of where it's been. For this reason, consider using a condom, buying a nicer toy or don't share it and take understanding people to bed with you. Conversely, just don't stick it in your face and breath deep - it's not a strong smell you'd notice otherwise.

Design / Shape / Size

The length of the toy is a little over a foot long, with an insertable length of 10 inches. There's a handy loop at the end of it for easy extraction, and the beads start off about a quarter of an inch and gradually become larger, the largest at about an inch. The graduated beads are perfect for anal beginners, though they probably won't impress the seasoned anal aficionado. The TPR Silicone is soft and malleable - inserting each bead is easy and comfortable. Unless the TSA on duty was born yesterday, you won't fool anyone at the airport.


For the price point, this is a fantastic toy for beginners who want to try anal play. With care, it will last a long time and shouldn't degrade. The smell, as mentioned, may be a problem for some, so if you're concerned about it, consider upgrading to something less porous. It's a great toy to enhance masturbation and stimulate the prostate. It makes guys rock hard, so it's lots of fun to use as a sexual aid, too. As a stand alone toy, it won't do a whole lot; the beads are best inserted and left alone until after climax. If you're looking for something with a little more zing, try a slim dildo that can be thrust in and out or an anal vibrator. For beads, these are a great economical option.

Care and Maintenance

You must wash this toy before and after, and use lubricant to insert it. Avoid sharing this toy with others or use a condom every time as the material is somewhat porous. Likewise, it will inevitably retain a slight smell, so bear that in mind before purchasing it. Store it in its original packaging, or its own bag or box. Wrap it in a clean towel or paper towel after every use - make sure it doesn't mingle with your other toys.

    I noticed it retained smell too! That must eb because it is not completely non-porous. Good review.
  • giggled
    Yeah, the smell is really its only downside. It's a solid, affordable toy that does pretty much what you'd expect. Thanks for the feedback Smile

    This was my very first anal toy and I learned quickly that I wanted something that can be sterilized and was nonporous. But, you are so right in that it is a great beginners toy. You can learn if you like it and you won't spend too much in case you don't.

    Nice review

    The boomerang effect - lol. Great review... I've been thinking about purchasing this but I think I'll pass. Sounds a little messy.

    Ha, thanks! If you are looking for anal beads, these are a great deal. Don't let my review put you off - these won't slip out and are easy to clean, provided you remove them with care. I recommend a slim anal vibe or dildo for more intense play.
