X - 10 beads - anal beads by Cal Exotics - review by DiscretionAdvised

Starter beads for the curious...

Overall, these are a low cost intro to anal play. Since they are not made of silicone, I would consider them a trial run, only to be used while you evaluate if you'd like to pursue purchasing a higher quality set.
Low cost; gradually increasing bead size; flexible; easy to clean.
Not completely hygienic due to material; maybe too stiff for some.

useful review


I use these toys when I'm in the mood for a little bit of anal stimulation, without going crazy. They are easy to insert, allowing me the flexibility of staying small or pushing deeper for more stimulation, depending on how the mood changes. I variate between pushing in and pulling out, and on the bigger balls, its nice to clinch my muscle and lightly tug, in order to provide some sensation without removing them.

I find that the best stimulation is to remove them right before and during orgasm, as the prostate and anus contractions coinciding with the beads removal causes a nice synergy of pleasure, making my orgasm stronger.

Material / Texture

This toy is made entirely out of a flexible rubbery plastic material, formed as one piece. Although it's not silicone, I only require a small amount of lube for comfort. The upside of this material is that you can use any type of lube you want, including silicone. However, the downside is that it cannot be cleaned with boiling hot water, like silicone, or it will melt.

Upon opening the package, there was a not that unpleasant, light rubbery smell, but that has faded over time.

Design / Shape / Size

The firmness of the material allows for easy insertion, but is flexible enough that inserting the entire 11 inches is not painful to the curves inside your body. The largest bead is approximately 1 inch around. The ring at the end is large enough to keep the entire toy from potentially getting "lost" inside.
    • Beginner
    • Partner play


The price, flexibility and increasing bead sizes are this product's strong points. It really allows beginners to work their way up to more anal stimulation without fear of hurting themselves, or spending a bunch of money on something they may find out that they don't enjoy.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because it is not made of silicone, it is never entirely sterile. However, after washing with warm soap and water, I feel like it is clean "enough". Similar to the "kills 99.9% of germs" anti-bacterial hand soap, that .1% of germs is likely not going to hurt you. However, I would only use these on yourself, or with a disease free partner, and I would only use them in the way they were intended, avoiding cross contamination with other orifices.

Since these are made of hard jelly, they will melt if washed in too hot of water. Because of this, these are not dishwasher safe.

    What kind of lube do you like to use with this? Seems like a pretty good set of beads. Thanks for the review.
  • DiscretionAdvised
    I usually use Boy Butter H20 lube, but any lube would work!
  • Diabolical Kitty
    How big is the smallest bead? How often do you use these? Can you wear them all day or is it just a toy you use to play with? Nice start.
  • Diabolical Kitty
    BTW Do not use these in the dishwasher at all. Jelly will melt. Toy cleaner or just hot water and soap will clean these well.

    Thanks for the review. I like how you point out that a toy of this material is not entirely sterile. Very good point.

    Thanks for the review! Good job, but second that you shouldn't put jelly in the dishwasher. I probably wouldn't share jelly in any circumstances, but maybe I'm just really paranoid about jelly.
  • PassionQT
    I have the purple ones like these. I'm still looking for a silicone set that is almost the same size but haven't had any luck.
  • DiscretionAdvised
    @Diabolical Kitty: The smallest bead is approximately 1/4", or about the size of those Sixlet candies.


    I'll get out the ol' measuring stick for the follow up review.

    Also, I edited the dishwashing line to be more clear. Originally, I had meant that if you can turn off the heat on your dishwasher that it would be fine, but it's probably just better not to mention it.

    @stainedclear: Thanks! Yeah, I updated the dishwashing part. I suppose I could throw in a line that it might be a good idea to use a covering if one wanted to share. Not that practical and may be would distract from the experience, but cleanup would be easier and sharing would be safer.
