Review: Climax Silicone Vibrating Bum Beads
Silicone Bum Beads: Your Bum Will Thank You!
Climax Silicone Vibrating Bum Beads butt plug (blue) is great for a beginner or intermediate anal play user. It is brightly colored and attractive to the eye, sturdy, and really designed for comfort. It is a win in my book, that is for sure!
The comfort level of using this toy is certainly worth talking about. One of the most important things to consider when talking about comfort is what the loveworks.com product is made out of. This one happens to be made from silicone, one of my favorite materials. Silicone is smooth, non-porous (ideal for anal play), body friendly, easy to clean, and vibration travels easily through the material. Being made of silicone gives it more stability. I have discovered that stability is key for easy anal play.
You can easily guide the bum beads into yourself, as opposed to having to feed each individual bead in or trying to cram a more flimsy material into your bum. Another comfort design are the bum beads, they start off small about .75" and gradually get larger to about 1.3". This taper design is certainly desired for more easy insertion. It also stays in place fairly well. Anyone who has used vibrating anal toys knows that they sometimes slip out during intercourse. I'm not saying that won't happen, but it happens, less often and not as easily.
Personally, I have noticed it staying best when inserted just above the last bead. There is a slight indention or groove between each size bead to help it stay in place. There is also a handle located at the bottom for easy removal. No retrieving issues here!
The vibration is powered by a bullet inserted into the base of the toy with a convenient one touch button that controls the power. There is only one speed, but it's one that counts. It is whisper quiet as well. Once you turn it on you can barely hear it! The Bum Beads do take that 'assumed' annoying size battery everyone is scared of for some reason (watch battery size AG13) but they are more available than most people realize.
A set of batteries is included in the purchase as well. A quick tip to help keep these batteries longer lasting is to actually remove them after each use, or keep the plastic barrier that comes with it and put it back after each use. The plastic barrier I am referring to is a small, paper thin, plastic circle located underneath the cap you unscrew to get to the battery loveworks.com compartment. By separating the direct connection between the battery and the toy, the batteries tend to last WAY longer.
All in all this is an excellent product. Like I mentioned earlier it is great for anal during vaginal intercourse with a partner, you can use it by yourself, and some women have even told me they use it for vaginal use and / or clitoral stimulation. Anal stimulation plus any other kind of stimulation nearly always equals a win. 🙂
Pros: Made of a body safe material – silicone
Cons: Battery type required
Only one speed
***Just a friendly reminder about silicone, you never want to use a silicone based lubricant with a silicone toy. They cause a kind of chemical reaction, that will make it appear your toy has almost melted, it ruins your toy. It may not happen immediately, but will eventually. This also means do not store a silicone toy touching another silicone toy. The same thing will happen.
