MyPleasure sent me a couple of toys to review recently. Unbeknownst to me when I asked to review them, they are apparently siblings (or cousins?) and share almost identical packaging, as well as a few similarities in design.

So, even though this first review is focusing on the Love Beads (a.k.a. “Love Pacifier X-10 Duo”) you can expect a somewhat similar, but oh-so different review on it’s fraternal twin, the Love Bump, within a couple days. It’s also related to the toy frequently know simply as the Love Pacifier, a teardrop shape with a ring.

The Love Beads have an interesting design. In my head, I pictured the big single ball to go in my vagina while the 3 beads would be inserted anally. While this is possible, the 3 beads are curved the wrong way. It feels like they’re poking against my tailbone. However, they’re still quite enjoyable, and are an awesome price for being silicone!

Packaging

The Beads come in a plastic square box, with the only clear section being that which exposes the shape of the toy.

There isn’t much information on the box, except “100% silicone” and “Dishwasher Safe” as well as a site where you can register the product. I’ve never heard of that before, and I haven’t done it so I can’t tell you what to expect. I imagine if you put in your email address you will start getting targeted advertising from other toy companies.

Materials

As stated on the box, these beads are pure silicone, which is really the only (safe) way to go when you start talking anal play. These are completely sterilizable with soap and water, or a 10% bleach solution.

The silicone is very flexible but it isn’t very squishy at all. I can bend this toy in half at the joint, and in between the three beads.

If you have tried the Love Pacifier (teardrop shape with a ring) this silicone will feel quite similar.

How to Use

Decide which side you want to use first or which side you will put where. I don’t enjoy the three beads inside my vagina, and the large bead is too big for me to start with.

Put waterbased lube where you want/need it, but try to avoid getting it on the handle because it will get quite slick and make it hard to keep a grip.

My Use

I really wish they had curved the beads toward the big bead so I could put both in my body at once. However, I almost always start with using the tri-bead set then after a little bit of warm-up I’ll switch to the big bead. It’s kind of awkward to have one of the sides inside my body and the other out, but it’s the only thing that works for me.

This is a little off topic, perhaps, but I absolutely adore the shape of the handle. Elegant and useful, while still modern and cute. These are the goals I believe toys need to strive for.

I’m not too crazy about the color selection – a very true blue and an orange that is very orange. They remind me of crayons. I understand that some people will love these colors, but they’re just not for me. That being said, I got both the Love Beads and the Love Bump in blue and it makes a really cute little set. I believe MyPleasure only sells them in blue – orange never seems to sell very well.

Thanks so much MyPleasure for sending me the Love Beads to review. I am more than happy to provide an honest review in exchange for them.
