Didn't rock our world as expected

This toy is good for individuals who are new to anal play. It's not very exciting and does not offer very much variety, but can provide that additional stimulation that may make a sexual experience (either oral or intercourse) more enjoyable.
Removable bullet allows for easy clean up, smooth and flexible material.
The beads are uncomfortable to insert and remove, bullet only has one setting.

useful review


We used this toy anally during oral sex. I slowly inserted it into my hubby as I went down on him. We definitely needed to lube it up significantly prior to insertion. Because of the three "beads" that it is comprised of, it really did not feel great to him to thrust it in and out, but rather inserting it as far as it could go and maybe wiggle it in place, but not push it in and out. We both feel that this toy is a nice addition to regular intercourse, and increases stimulation.

Material / Texture

The dinky beads are made up of a smooth, silicone material. It is flexible, but firm. It is made up of three beads to control the depth that it is inserted. There is no odor to them.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

My hubby was surprised when I told him that the beads were inserted all the way. He said he was a little disappointed in it, and had higher expectations for the dinky beads than it delivered. While holding the dinky beads in your hand, the vibrations from the bullet feel rather intense. In fact, I have difficulty holding the beads from the very top where the bullet is inserted because the vibration is too strong, including during play. However, that feeling was not as intense to the person receiving them while it was being used.

The beads made it irritating to move the toy in and out during play (maybe you're not supposed to?). Even though my hubby said it didn't feel as large as he thought it would, it did cause him to bleed slightly. Maybe next time we need more lubrication or to leave it in one position. We are both new to anal play, so we are still figuring it all out. It was very easy to use though.

The beads made it uncomfortable to move the beads in and out during play. The material is nice and smooth, and it was very easy to use. It only has one setting on the bullet, and the intensity is not adjustable, which is disappointing when that intensity level is not strong enough.
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

After use, we just removed the bullet and wiped it down. We washed the beads themselves in hot, soapy water. It is stored in my husband's nightstand drawer, and does not seem to need any special maintenance or storage. We used a water-based lubricant with the beads, and that worked well. The beads are non-absorbent, so the lubricant coats them well.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I still really like the dinky beads. I was glad when my hubby got his own anal toy, so now this one can be used for me. We did have to change the batteries in the bullet, and the batteries were watch battery style, but in a pack of sorts; sort of like three batteries taped together. You can't just put 3 new batteries in it, my hubby had to finagle his own sort of battery pack for it to work. We have also since used my bullet in the hole, as it is so much more powerful than the bullet that comes with it. But all in all, it is still making my bottom happy.

    I second what Cynthia said, lube and the more the better. When you think you have enough, put on some more. Also try to work as much as you can into the anus before. Above all else, if it hurts, stop. He/you should feel no pain.
    Nice review.

    Hmm, sux about the batteries. I think I'd use another bullet in it too cause I couldn't be bothered with that. I hate watch batteries!
    I have this one in my wishlist.

    Cheers on the review
