I'll find Luv somewhere else

The Luv Beads are great for beginners, as they are small and the biggest bead isn't really that big at all. They're cute, the beads and handle are all hearts, and they also come in a variety of cute colors. However, being made from jelly, these beads just aren't worth it, as you could easily find something made with a more reliable material for the same price.

extremely useful review


The Luv Beads are a string of jelly-based beads that start rather small but taper to a pretty good size by the end. Because they're made of jelly, they are easily manipulated. This toy is best suited for anal use, and I found that using them with a partner is a lot simpler than doing it yourself. Because of the heart-shaped handle, I had very little fear of losing these beads inside of me.

Material / Texture

These beads are made of jelly, which puts their safety rating at a measly 2, which means they are definitely not the safest toy to be using. However, I found them to be quite pleasurable, and they were my first experience in the anal sex world, and led to a new favorite. The balls themselves are hard, starting very small and, for more experienced users, leaving something to still be desired by the end. However, if this is your first encounter with anal beads, they are extremely pleasant and ease you into the sensation very well.

I noticed no odor when I opened them, and found cleaning them to be simple, as jelly can't be sterilized; simply clean with warm water and a very mild soap or give it a wipe-down with a trusted toy cleaner, and the beads are good as new.

Design / Shape / Size

The Luv Beads have a good design, but more experienced users could easily be left wanting. The biggest bead isn't actually that big at all, and my husband and I usually just use these to warm up for something bigger and better.

They're small, therefore traveling with the Beads would be extremely convenient. However, because of the jelly, they should always be kept in a cool, dark place where they come into contact with little to no heat.

The hearts and fun colors make these Beads a fun addition to any toy collection. They're not the best, but they're cheap, and good to ease you into anal play.

These beads feel great. With a little bit of water- or silicone-based lubrication, you can really have a lot of fun with these. I enjoy using them with my husband to get warmed up.

They could be improved by using a much better material, however. Jelly is very porous; it cannot be sterilized, and therefore these cannot be passed around from partner to partner. They have a rubbery feel and require a decent amount of lubrication to keep the fun going.

Honestly, if you're looking for the real deal, these anal beads are a pass.
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Care and maintenance of the Beads is pretty straightforward: no boiling-hot water, no harsh soaps. Just take a mild soap or toy cleaner and some warm water, and wipe them up.

Make sure to store them in a cool, dark place so that the jelly doesn't melt or warp in any way that would make you have to retire them, as jelly is easily ruined by warmth.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
    • Simple maintenance


The Beads came in a simple, clear, plastic package. There was no discretion, as you could see what was inside the plastic.

They came with no user's instructions, however I think that anal beads pretty much explain themselves.

Unfortunately, the package cannot be reused and would not be suited as a gift or storage box, and should probably be thrown away immediately after opening, as there's really no point in keeping it around.

    • Not discreet
    • Uninformative

Personal comments

These are your basic anal beads: they start off small, and end up at about a medium size, if that.

I found them to be extremely cute, however, even in just the plain clear color that I bought. The small, heart-shaped handle and beads are quite endearing, and somehow makes up for some of the simplicity of the the toy itself.

My experience with this toy was pretty great, considering I had no other experience to base it upon. The husband and I bought these to warm my body up to anal, and they did exactly what they were bought for. I found that they required a pretty decent amount of lube, but they felt amazing to me and I will soon be purchasing something larger and better-made.

Follow-up commentary
When I bought these, I had no idea how terrible jelly is for you. So of course, I bought one of the billions of jelly toys that are (unfortunately) out on the market. These aren't bad, but you could get some that feel way better for around the same price and that are good for you as well.

I would honestly say that anyone considering these should pass them up and look for something a little more safe and trustworthy.

    I don't believe that jelly is completely horrible, but I agree that there are much better options that are more versatile, more comfortable, and more body-compatible. I think many new consumers end up with jelly toys, but hopefully they'll be willing to spend a little more and get higher quality toys after they do a little more research.

    @basalt, i agree. using a jelly toy isn't the most harmful thing you can do to your body by any means, but I'm also one of those people who doesn't like putting bad things into me ;P
