Luna pleasure bead system - sex toy by LELO - review by Kim!

Spheres of Pleasure

I cannot praise these enough. Despite the occasional pinch (2 pinches in a month of frequent use) these balls deliver. My orgasms are stronger and while wearing them I do have to say that there is a bit of an extra spring in my step. They provide a tiny bit of frequent thrill which can be the beginnings of one amazing night. The multi-weight system makes these a great choice for vaginal exerciser newbies all of the way up to seasoned pros, unless you're picking up bowling balls or crazy stuff
Design, different weights, and better orgasms
Occasionally pinches

extremely useful review


LELO went and did it again. They've wooed me with yet another one of their products. I just cannot resist those sturdy boxes and the feeling of sluxury (That's short for "sex luxury". I made it up just now.) that I get from opening their sleek boxes for the first time.

This toy is for vaginas only. Don't put this in the butt. It might eat them and then you'll be out a LELO toy and have things stuck up there. Neither is a situation that I wish to encounter.

They exercise your Kegel muscles (which are not found in your butt anyways) without sitting there, bored at work or in class, and realizing you haven't done them in a couple of days. In fact, they exercise your muscles FOR you. I don't know about you, but I like products that make my life easier and do things for me. My dishwasher and I are having a love affair. A remote car started would be great if anyone wants to volunteer. So how do they do this work for you? Well, besides magic, they force your body to hold them in AND these metal balls roll around inside of a plastic ball (It sort of reminds me of hamster balls). When they do this it causes your muscles to contract ever so slightly, which makes you get a buff vagina eventually. At least, this is what LELO says and I would like to believe them.

Material / Texture

As I mentioned, this set reminded me of hamster balls. The pink and blue balls (different colors for different weights) are translucent plastic so you can see the other ball rolling around inside. Plastic is non-porous. The little holder that you can put them in before you put them inside of you is made out of super-safe silicone.

The beads are firm and do not offer give, you may need a tiny drop of lube or so to help with insertion if you are not naturally well-lubricated. Rest assured, after leaving these in for awhile, you probably won't need any lube to slide them back out.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The design is the quality that anyone who has ever encountered a LELO product would expect. These are elegant and high quality. They intelligently come with a harness to place the beads in so retrieval is easier. If that isn't enough, one ball of each weight has a string, which you place through the hole in the harness for even easier removal. You won't have to dig for these ever.

They are a little on the large size but, like I said, a bit of lube should make them pretty easier to insert.

Pleasure Beads are rather discreet. If just the beads are in plain view you could easily pass them off as cat toys, provided you have a cat. You'd probably get a weird look if you don't but hopefully no one really would push the issue. The enclosed harness is a bit more tricky but you probably could pull that awkward conversation off.

Air travel in the United States with these beads inserted is probably a very bad idea. The ball inside is stainless steel, which does occasionally set off metal detectors, if you're fortunate enough to only go through those. The scanners would probably detect them and you'd be given a lovely pat down and forced to answer a lot of uncomfortable questions. Stow them in your luggage or leave them at home. If they're in your bags no one will really know what they are and you'll be fine.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Whimsical / artistic


The system brilliant comes with multiple weights so that you can work your way up to the heaviest set if need be. I've previously used ben wa balls and am generally pretty good about doing my kegels so I started right off with the two heaviest balls in place. Things went pretty well. However, you can choose just one light ball, then two light balls, one heavy ball, one light and one heavy as well, starting with your most comfortable level and working your way up if you wish. They can be worn without the girdle.

The feeling of the ball ratting around was more prominent when I stepped harder. Walking across new and fluffy snow generally does not yield a whole lot of movement while quickly walking across concrete shakes things up a bit more. Running and jumping makes for a delightful little party. The stimulation is generally not enough to really do too much but enough so that you are frequently aware of the balls. I find that I enjoy wearing them when I know that I have an exciting night coming up. They add a nice level of awareness and anticipation that when things get moving on that evening it becomes that much more delightful.

While I was a bit skeptical of the beads' effectiveness once I saw their larger size and realized that my muscles wouldn't be doing as much work, I have found that they do make a difference. I can certainly feel a difference in the intensity of my orgasms with regular use.

The one thing that I have found occasionally happening that is less than spectacular is that they occasionally pinch. I'm not 100% certain what exactly is pinching since it's generally remedied before I can go somewhere to fix it myself. It doesn't last long but it definitely takes me by surprise.

Care and Maintenance

These should be cleaned regularly. When cleaning they definitely should be taken apart (all beads out of the girdle) and each part carefully washed with toy cleaner or soap and warm water. The cord has a bit of potential to be a ick-catcher so some extra caution should be taken when cleaning it.

LELO does not recommend using a silicone-based lubricant with these as it may damage the girdle. Water-based are recommended.

These come with a satin bag for on-the-go storage. You can stuff the girdle and all four beads in it if need be, but it makes for a rather lumpy, awkwardly-shaped, and noisy bag. I recommend keeping the beads that you are not currently using inside of the box.

As a side note, these should not be used during pregnancy according to the instructions. I am guessing the the frequent contracts could result in some uterine stimulation or that they may potentially introduce bad things inside. I'm not entirely sure of the reasoning.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


If you have never received a toy wrapped in LELO packaging I highly recommend picking out the one that looks most appealing to you to see what the fuss is about. The outer box is just a basic white thin cardboard box with "LELO" in silver and a picture of the beads in the holder on the back. Inside of that box, which can be recycled, is their trademark sturdy black box with a lift off top, which makes for a gorgeous gift and great storage. Inside of the box the beads rest in a heavy plastic party and underneath that is the bag, girdle, instructions, and information about their great warranty. (1 year warranty, free replacement, 10 years at half price)
The instructions are very thorough and helpful, complete with a diagram of the location of the inserted system.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Very informative
    • Would make a good gift
Follow-up commentary
LELO makes their products to last and these are holding up well to the test of time. My only issue with them is that I sometimes forget that I own them and they end up sitting for awhile. I haven't really noticed a difference in my muscular strength after using these but the hyper-awareness and the sensations definitely make my day go a bit better.
