You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Anal Beads’ tag.

Recently, I have been on a quest to find the perfect beginner anal toy. I have very little experience with anal, especially when compared to the experience I have had with, say, vibrators. I’m always looking for something enjoyable, cute and body-safe. This toy, the Silicone Beaded Probe from Cal Exotics “L’Amour” collection is all three, and is an awesome addition to anyone’s toy chest.

Packaging

The beads come in clear box with a tray that holds the beads securely. It isn’t discreet at all, but it is also much classier and prettier to look at that than some of their previous packaging.

This would be a cute bachelorette gift, though I’m not sure how anal beads would be received.

The packaging is not as excessive as others, but it is still more than I’d like to store. I’ll recycle my box as soon as this review is posted.

Materials

Thankfully, this toy is 100% silicone. It feels smooth and firm and it’s completely sterilizable (always a MUST for anal toys). There’s no smell or taste.

You can share this one with your partner(s) but wash well with soap and hot water in between uses. If you really want to get it super clean, you can spray it liberally with a 10% bleach solution.

It’s decently flexible at the joints, but the balls are difficult to squish and squeeze. I can feel how very firm this material is when it’s popping in and out of the anal sphincter, leading to some very intense sensations.

The “hook” at the end of the toy is flexible but I don’t feel like it would get ‘sucked up’ into the body. I do wish they had put a bigger flare so there would be less risk of that happening, though.

How to Use

Wash this toy well with soap and water before and after each use. The silicone is inclined to pick up lint and other stuff that doesn’t need to be put inside your body.

Apply a liberal amount of water-based lube to yourself, then some to each ball of this toy. Go as slow or as fast as you like! But if you’re using this toy on someone else, go slowly at first so they can get used to the sensations, as well as the width of each bump.

My Use

This toy is deceptively large! Or I’m not as far along in my anal play as I thought. The first three bumps go in easily but that fourth feels considerably larger than it looks. I managed to get it in comfortably but I just couldn’t do the fifth and final ball.

The first ball is a little tough to get inside because it will be inclined to bend away. I had to use a finger to guide it in.

If you look at the shape of this toy, it almost has a small ‘wave’ or bend in the middle. I couldn’t really feel this in use, so I imagine it’s purely for aesthetics.

This is my first set of silicone anal beads and I love it! I think it is a great introduction for anyone, and even more advanced users would be satisfied by it.

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.
