They arrived very quickly in some super discrete packaging.
When they got here I couldn’t wait to rip the package open and see what was inside, and I wasn’t disappointed the Luna beads come in a lovely black box with a nice clear picture of them on the box and a brief description, they are described as both pleasure and fitness combined.
Inside the outer box is a lovely black presentation box which is stamped Lelo on the top, and inside the box are the beads presented in a molded casing with a nice satin storage bag and an information booklet. My first impressions of the Lelo Luna beads where good, they look lovely and when you pick them up you can feel the weight inside them rolling around.
The Lelo Luna Noir Beads and the Lelo Mini Beads are the same specifications, The classic bead are 35mm in diameter and weigh 28g each, where the Noir and the mini are smaller and heavier they are only 29mm in diameter and weigh in at 37g each. You maybe wouldn’t think that this would make much difference, but you would be wrong, the smaller the beads the harder they are to keep in place and the heavier the beads are also more difficult to keep in place. These smaller heavier beads are designed for the more advanced user and for people who have used lighter/larger beads in the past and are ready to move onto something more taxing.
I have to admit that when I used both of the balls together I struggled at first to hold them in place, it takes a bit of practice and regular use to build up the strength in the muscles to be able to hold them in place, especially if you are like me and you have had 2 kids. Luckily unlike most other beads of this kind they can be separated and used individually so you can just use the one ball and build up to the two as your muscles get stronger and you get more confident.
The Lelo Luna Beads are made from Body Safe PC ABS and the casing is made from silicone, there is a retrieval cord attached to one of the beads, but either bead can be used on its own if you wish, and they can be used with or without the casing. I tried both together with the casing and found that the casing helped increase the size slightly, and made the beads feel more sturdy than without, I also tried using the single ball with the cord on its own, I didn’t try the ball without the cord on its own, but there is no reason why you can’t if you feel confident about retrieving it again.
When the beads are been worn you can feel the weight inside rolling around with every even slight movement, and you can feel your muscles trying to grip onto them to keep them in place, I found that been more active helped to make them jiggle more, they are very jiggly jiggle balls.
The Lelo Luna beads come with a very good booklet which shows where you should position the beads, the basic information is that you should only use a very small amount of lube if you need it as this will make the beads slippy and harder to keep in place and that they should be placed approx 2cm inside the vaginal which is just above the muscle wall to make sure that the muscles are having to work to hold it in place. It also advises you that to get any noticeable improvement in the PC muscles you have to work at it regularly and you have to be patient, it takes time before you will notice any real difference, but if you have bought these because you want that effect you should be prepared to wait to get the results that you want.
Overall I really like the Lelo Luna Noir Beads, I love the design of the beads the black silicone case and the glossy beads complement each other perfectly, the storage bag is a lovely addition, they are very nicely weighted and feel good when they are been worn. I would recommend these for anyone who is experienced with beads and is ready to move on to something more challenging, or someone who hasn’t had children.
