Get “Lei’d” With This Sex Toy: Lelo Hula Beads Reviewed

Get “Lei’d” With This Sex Toy: Lelo Hula Beads Reviewed:

Hop into the Test Bed, a bi-weekly series where couples try out high-tech sex toys—curated by pleasure marketplace My Secret Luxury—and then discuss what happened over G-chat. This week’s toy: the LELO Hula Beads, which college students Kevin and Rebekah, tried out in and out—but mostly out—of bed.

Accoridng to Stacy Rybchin of My Secret Luxury, the beads aren’t just sexy, they’re exercise. “For longer, stronger orgasms, insert the Hula Beads and try to hold them in place by squeezing the pelvic floor muscles. No matter which way the Hula Beads are worn, they can be fun for couples to experiment with during foreplay or a night out.” (Emphasis on “a night out.”)

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

KEVIN:
The package was very modern and nice—like a Las Vegas hotel.

REBEKAH:
I also loved the little “authenticity card” that came in the box; it made me feel like I had just bought a designer bag.

KEVIN:
The product doesn’t look aggressive: it’s sleek and even a tad bit flimsy. I didn’t want to break it.

REBEKAH:
It is definitely a very cute contraption—small and round, with a separate remote control—but still, a bit intimidating. Not in the way that a 20-inch dildo would be but in an “I-don’t-know-what-I’m-doing-exactly” way.

KEVIN:
I was intimidated by the “waterproof” feature detailed in the instructions. Who knows what could happen! I would never want to electrocute your pussy… Or maybe I would!

REBEKAH:
I was mostly really excited to get it going up in me.

IN THE ACT

KEVIN:
I was ready for sex based off all of the excitement the new toy gave us. But we sat naked and awkwardly for a while. Then I realized that I really needed to read the instructions.

REBEKAH:
Since the remote also vibrated, we thought that maybe we had done something wrong.

KEVIN:
It took a good 20 minutes to figure out what each light, buzz, and beep meant. It was difficult since there are two different components to the toy: the bead and the remote. And I’m usually good at multi-tasking!

REBEKAH:
Yeah, unfortunately, this was a bit of a mood-killer since we had to stop what we were doing, but once we figured out what we were doing things got much better.

KEVIN:
I figured out how to use it but I felt kind of left out. Because you have to submerge the device into the pussy, I couldn’t really do much with just one hand since I had to hold the remote the whole time. I was running out of tricks to pull out my sleeve.

REBEKAH:
Yeah, it eventually turned into a one-person show since the remote was difficult to understand and use. Also since the “beads” fully went inside of me, there was really no clit action, which I didn’t like.

KEVIN:
But this bred the perfect idea. I thought it would be great fun to have you walk around town with the bead inside of you. Anytime you got rude I would jolt you.

REBEKAH:
This was most likely not what the product was intended for.

KEVIN:
In the supermarket, at the movie theaters, at the fair, we tried it everywhere! It felt like a real life version of Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham. Except it was Hula Beads and snatch.

REBEKAH:
It was really odd to have this magical bead waving and buzzing inside of me in public, and there were times when it was quite difficult to keep a straight face—like while buying movie tickets or checking out at the super market. Since there was no clit stimulation, I almost felt like I just had an odd, buzzing tampon up in me.

FINAL VERDICT

REBEKAH:
We both had a fun time experimenting with the Hula Beads, mostly cuz we got really creative with them. I was hoping that they would be a good team activity, but they turned out to mostly be a solo show.

KEVIN:
I’m sure we will find even stranger things to do with the toy. I just think that everyone sees the price tag ($169) on some of these items and gets real conservative. But sometimes you have to burn some cash to feel a little electricity.

REBEKAH:
My best advice to anyone getting this device would be to not limit yourself to just the bedroom. We are toying with the idea of taking them to the pool next since they are waterproof.
