I am a fan of Ben Wa balls, often also called Kegel Balls and/or Love eggs, so when Whipple Tickled asked me to pick some items for review I was very excited that they agreed to send me the Lelo Hula Beads.
If you don’t know what Kegel Balls are, they are basically spherical shaped toys that you wear inside your vagina. They are meant to give your vaginal muscles a bit of work out as they stimulate your pelvic floor muscles but they can also be pleasurable and stimulating to wear. Over the years I have owned a variety of different ones in various shapes and sizes. Oddly it is not something I have written much about here before but I like the way they feel and, a bit like wearing a butt plug out and about, there is something sexy about knowing you have them in whilst out in the world.
So what if you took the idea of kegel balls and combined them with something that vibrates and while you are it, make a remote control for it so you can adjust the vibrations without removing it, or, hand the remote off to someone else and let them take charge? Would you get something amazing or something disappointing? Let’s find out.
Whipple Tickle Lelo Hula Beads Black
The Lelo Hula Beads are remote controlled beads the rotate and vibrate. The head is slightly tilted and rotates and the base, which is slightly fatter than the head is the part that vibrates. It comes with a separate hand held remote control that has both button controls and hand movement sensitive controls. When laid flat it is at its lowest setting but as you slowly tilt it the toy responds with more intense vibration and rotations. It is waterproof and comes with a recharging cable. The remote control does require two AAA batteries which it does come with. Top tip, remove these from the remote when you are not using it to prolong their life and make sure the remote is not draining them even though it’s not on.
What I liked about the Lelo Hula Beads
I will be honest and say I didn’t have high hopes for this toy. I have tried a few remote controlled toys in the past. Both internal ones like this and also clit stim ones and they have always seemed like a good idea that turned out to be disappointing. I think I was expecting this to be the same.
I was wrong.
It took a couple of minutes for me to work out the controls. You have to ‘arm’ the internal device before inserting. So you press the button on the body of it so that the light is flashing, and the same on the remote control. Then once you insert it you can use the remote to make it start rotating and vibrating which means you could insert it before heading out and wearing just like kegel balls and then later one you, or your partner can use the remote to control to ramp things up a bit.
I found it pretty responsive. Even with the remote two or three metres away it still responded to it with it no problems so you could totally use it with a partner who was across the table or at a party with you. It is not completely silent, at home just you or you and partner you would probably be able to hear the remote as that vibrates to mimic the toy so the person using it has some idea of what is happening but out in the world in a restaurant say, unless it was dead quiet, no one would hear it.
I also found my body pretty responsive to this toy. That is actually a bit of an understatement. The combination of the vibrations and the movement very quickly made it so that all I could think about was the achy need in my cunt. It had me rocking in my chair and squeezing my muscles round it as I plated with the remote and turned it up and down. I really was surprised by how fucking good this toy felt and how much it turned me on.
I don’t think it would ever be enough to make me orgasm. I need clit stimulation to push me over the edge but what it did do was basically edge me and turn me into a massive ball of horn that if I had been with a partner would have me grinding up against them looking for relief and eventually begging them to touch me or let me come. After about 20 minutes I was so fired up that I went and found a big old dildo and gave myself a glorious fucking, rubbing my clit, until I came. It was fucking epic and I will definitely be playing that game again.
I would also absolutely LOVE to use this with a partner who would use it to tease and torment me and generally be an evil meany. I can totally picture someone turning it on at opportune moments and then turning the power up and down. Both secretly but also, openly, seeing them grin as they turned the remote, cooking their head to one side and watching me in my aroused discomfort. OK this is clearly a story I need to write so I will link that here when I do.
What I didn’t like about the Lelo Hula Beads
Working out the controls initially was a little fiddly. It would definitely recommend that you spend some time playing around with it before actually trying to use but once you know what does what and how to get it ready to respond to the remote then it is easy to operate. It’s not really something I didn’t like but just a heads up so you don’t do what I did which was insert it and then try and work them out.
However there is one big thing that I didn’t like about this toy and that is the charging point in the base of the toy is not one of the ones the reseals and as you wear this toy internally that little port ends up getting bodily fluids in it. The toy says it is completely waterproof and can be washed as such and so I did use warm water to flush it out but I do think a toy of this standard in this price range should have a sealed charging point. However that is really the only problem with this toy and not enough of one to stop me using it because my cunt LOVES it!
It is a massive shame though because I absolutely rate this toy. I think it is one of the best toys I have been sent in a really long time and I loved how it felt and worked and if it was not for this one little issue I would happily be giving it a 5 star rating all round. I really couldn’t find fault with it in any other way.
In short, the Lelo Hula Beads completely exceeded expectations and this toy will would definitely feature in my top 10 of toys I love at the moment and if you asked me to recommend a toy for playtime with a partner it would be this one. I think it is all about the swirl of that head but the combination of that, the vibrations and being able to control it while you wear it makes the Lelo Hula Beads an absolute winner in my sex toy book!
