Smartballs Teneo uno - vaginal balls by Fun Factory - review by Grellopop

Effective! An Honest Review.

Alright, so my final word on this is that: It's a great product to better yourself, keep an open mind and think about the scientific dynamics, not whether you get off with this product or not. It's very easy. It's easy to clean, hide, carry, whatever. It's very sporty, and for good reason. It's a tool, not a joy ride.

I love mine, will you?

extremely useful review

I got these in three days ago in the mail. I actually ordered the promotional kit where you get the Uno and the Duo.

Feel: The Silicone of the toy is pleasurable to the touch. It is combined with a hard plastic which makes up the majority of the ball. It is not squishy and the weight is moderate but good, in my opinion. I mean, you don't want to be holding a bowling ball in your vajay-jay, do you? The weight sort of feels like a small paperweight, perhaps? It's hard to describe, but it's pleasurable to the touch.

Size: The size (in my hand) is good; a fair size considering where it's going. I would relate it to a ping pong ball, probably slightly smaller. It is true to its size listed here on the site with the 1:1 ratio. In my hand I can wrap my index finger and thumb around it and get just about all the way around. In that position, the cord goes down just a tiny bit past the first bend in my wrist, maybe slightly farther for you (I'm a big girl).

Looks: Personally, this product looks like something Nike made for tennis players or joggers. I don't know why, but it just does for me. I can't help but think about it every time I pick it up. It's very sporty in style, and each of the little ridges are about a millimeter out from the hard underlying plastic ball. The silicone is well-bonded to the hard plastic and it's a very well-made product; you can see it.

Sanitation: This was extremely easy to clean, even with the ridges. Because the silicone is bonded to the plastic permanently, there's no way for any 'juices' to get under the plastic or anything like that. The ridges are small and there are no visible seams. You literally just use some antibacterial soap and warm water to clean it after use.

Noise/Sensation: These balls make almost no noise externally. You'd have to shake it to make it make a low 'thud' sort of noise. Internally, you could never possibly hear it, or even know it was present. The sensation is extremely mellow, you don't really feel it, every now and then it's existence just pops up in your head and that's the only way you'll sort of feel it. Most people might say there isn't much of a sensation at all.

Other Observations: The retrieval cord is stronger than it looks. I tried pulling it moderately and it barely stretched, so on the videos others are posting they are pulling VERY hard to make it stretch three inches out. There was no odor to it at all, no weird residues and it doesn't attract dust or lint (well, maybe if you leave out for long periods of time or leave it resting on a furry blanket or something, then MAYBE it'll pick up some). It doesn't seem to 'pick up' other odors either. Some plastics, I've noticed, do. The indent at the base of the ball is helpful in getting it inside, but it is very round with no 'eggy' shape, so don't be fooled by the pictures.

I would like to see a carrying sack included with this, but it's no big deal. Also, in the future, I would like to see FunFactory come out with more personalization options (make your own color scheme), and some new sizes or shape options, same with weight options. A tapered head would be easier for people like me who are tight, unused to penetration, and pre-childbearing; while perhaps something heavier might make it more noticeable, for those who want that. I'm not sure if the Duo would do that, I've not tried mine yet. Just a thought.
I have to say, I was really excited to get these in. And don't get me wrong, I love them, but I'm not a person who's used to penetration, so I'm very tight (I haven't had kids yet either), so getting this one inside and out is painful for me. The silicone doesn't let it 'glide' and the ridges cause discomfort for me.

Once it IS inside, it basically feels like it disappears, and it finds its place on its own easily.

I left it in for around 3-4 hours (please note that the package tells you not to leave it in longer than that, and you’ll see why in just a minute), and I noticed something that I think a lot of reviewers missed. This product is most likely NOT going to give you an orgasm – that’s not what it's for. This product is to be used the same way you use a dumbbell to strengthen your arms during curls. This is an object for practice and strengthening. After the 3-4 hours, and pay attention to this, I had forgotten about it until suddenly all my attention went straight to my vagina. Why? Because it was quivering. I could literally feel it quivering the same you would any other muscle after a hard workout. I left it in an additional 20-30 minutes then took it out. Leaving it in longer than 3-4 hours would probably cause some achiness or other discomfort if you’re like me.

My point here is: You might not feel the ball, you might forget about the ball, but your vagina has all her attention on it. The Kegel muscles CAN be moved voluntarily, but just because the ball is in there doesn't mean you should be consciously holding it there for hours on end. What people forget is that the muscles will contract on their own, subconsciously, without you knowing, completely at your ignorance. (This is what the moving ball is SUPPOSED to do; trigger your muscles, not your orgasm)

After taking the ball out, I could feel the ‘relief’ and an extremely mild ache that went away within 15 minutes. It felt just like any muscle after a good workout, so don't fret.

So please, take this into consideration if you're thinking about buying these. I found the kit to be a great option for those who aren’t sure which they prefer.

The string, I know there's been many complaints about the length, was perfect for me. It only sticks out about an inch past my opening when it's inside. So I have no idea what everyone else is talking about. Anyway, I'm guessing that FunFactory kindly made it the length it is so that us larger ladies can use it! So I'm thankful for the length.

A couple notes: Squatting makes it easier to put in and out. If you’re not aroused and want to use them, I highly suggest lube and mild stretching. Put it in just like a tampon.
