Don’t get me wrong – I love trying out new sex toys but every so often, I get in the mood to try something “different” other than a vibrator.
I was excited and intrigued to try the Luna Pleasure Bead system by Lelo. I’m sure some of you are looking at the photos below and wondering “What the hell are those?!” Let me explain:
Luna Beads are these neat little contraptions designed to help you with your Kegel exercises. When placed delicately inside you, each bead creates a subtle movement induced vibe that helps strengthen the vaginal wall and PC muscles. If not exercised regularly, these muscles can become weakened over time due to factors such as childbirth, aging & heavy lifting. By exercising and strengthening these muscles you get a variety of general health benefits including a greater sense of control over your own body and my favorite…. stronger and more intense orgasms!
(If you’re already doing all kinds of self-improvement for the New Year anyways, why not exercise this part of your body too?!)
One of the many reasons I love Lelo’s line of adult toys for women is because their products are beautifully packaged so it feels like you are opening a special gift. The Luna Bead Pleasure System includes four beads of different weights (the pink are lighter and the blue are slightly heavier) with one white silicone “girdle”. The beads come in a black box and include a satin carrying case. The pleasure beads are made of food grade, body safe materials and are hypoallergenic, latex free and phthalates free.
Made of a nonporous plastic, the beads slide into the silicone girdle. Simply insert the girdle inside you once your selected beads are in place. Movement will cause the inner balls to spin, producing a teasing sensation while at the same time helping to the strengthen your PC muscles. The two pink beads each weigh approximately one ounce, the blue beads are one and a third ounces each. Make a combination that is heavier on the top or bottom, use only one bead, or start with two of the lighter and move to the heavier when you are more advanced. It’s really up to you how you want to combine them!
I started off by trying the light weight pink balls and then moved on to the heavier blue balls (ha!). I would suggest using a bit of lube but not too much or you’ll have some very slippery balls on your hands!
My biggest fear was that I’d put these beads in, start moving around and then have to deal with tiny plastic balls literally falling out of my hoo-ha with every step. In preparation for this scenario, I even made sure I wore loose pajama pants so that I could catch the balls quickly before my cat started to chase them. However, I am happy to report that my worrying was all for nothing.
Both sets of balls inserted easily and were super comfortable. To my initial disappointment, the pink balls were so comfortable that I didn’t really feel any kind of sensation once they were inside. The blue balls were still really comfortable but I could definitely feel the inner bead circulating inside. This wasn’t enough of a sensation to bring me to orgasm (this isn’t the intention of the beads) however, it did feel good in a weird way.
I walked around my house, I jumped up and down, I did my pilates and the balls stayed perfectly in place. Of course this could only mean one thing:
I HAVE A VAJAYJAY OF STEEL.
Actually, I’m not sure whether this is true. Perhaps if I keep using the Luna Beads on a regular basis I will develop a death grip vagina. Like working out other parts of your body, results aren’t instantaneous. Only time (and the men I date in the future) will tell! Either way, these beads give me something productive to do while I watch back to back episodes of Homeland.
