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

Fun for beginners

If you have never done anal play before, this is a good toy for you to get used to it, if you don't mind the flimsy ring. Otherwise I'd look somewhere else.
Great material, good intro to anal
Beginners only, ring is flimsy

useful review


These beads are great for anyone looking to get into anal play. My husband and I have been playing around with it recently, and he used these to get me used to having a toy in my ass. Be careful though, as other reviewers have pointed out, the ring is next to useless. When I tried using these beads on my husband, the ring broke after just a gentle tug. This means that you will need to leave the last bead out for safety and to have something to hold on to.

Material / Texture

The silicone feels very nice. This particular blend is glossy and firm, but very flexible. I use it with lots of lube, so the glossiness is not a problem. The seam is almost invisible, and neither my husband or I can feel it at all.
    • Flexible
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The beads are comfortable, and the size progression makes them easy to insert. They progress from an almost unnoticeable bump to the circumference of about a nickel. Even though I had almost no anal experience, they were not uncomfortable. The connections between the beads are thicker than the ring, so they are less likely to break; however, if you have very strong muscles, that could be a problem for you.

My husband and I thought this was a great intro to anal play, despite the ring being useless. The beads are very comfortable. The flex means you need to insert each bead individually, but it also makes the toy sit very nicely inside.
    • Breakable
    • Comfortable
    • Small

Care and Maintenance

These are very easy to clean. The smooth, glossy surface means there are almost no seams or crevices to worry about. I just clean them with hot soapy water.
    • Easy to clean


I threw the box away as soon as I got it. It is packaged like a novelty item, and the box is flimsy and indiscreet. It's definitely not for storage.
    • Flimsy
    • Not discreet


We used them on me during sex for a fun first double penetration experience. However, I would not recommend them for advanced or even intermediate anal players, because the beads are quite small. Even so, they made me more comfortable with anal play and my husband loved the feeling of the beads popping in and out.

    Very nice first review, and welcome! I'm concerned about the ring breaking--if you think they are unsafe, don't use them and contact Eden customer service.

    Thank you foe sharing your personal experience with them.
