Introducing Lelo Luna Smart Bead

I think the thing that makes me the most excited as a reviewer is when I get to help launch a brand new product.  Lelo emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in promoting  and reviewing their new kegel training product, the Lelo Luna Smart Bead.  There have been several kegel personal training products that have come out recently.

To start off with, why do we care about kegels?  I have only reviewed a few kegel trainers, but they are all manual or considered “duo tone” kegel toys.  But kegels can help increase your ability to climax as well as the strength of orgasm.  Kegels also help with bladder control and overall vaginal health.  The focus of the Lelo Luna Smart Bead is to increase orgasmic potential.  Lelo created a Global survey that showed a few facts about female orgasm:

  • 76% of women claim their orgasm wave lasts less than six seconds
  • 11% of women have never experienced what they would describe as a climax
  • Only 4% of women are ‘Fully satisfied’ with the strength of their orgasms
  • Only 17% of women regularly experience multiple orgasms
  • 33% of women believe they have never experienced a multiple orgasm

Unlike many studies, this was a 2014 survey which has been gathering date for 5 years and had nearly 50,000 global participants.  With these facts in mind, Lelo designed the Smart Bead.

So what exactly is the Lelo Luna Smart Bead?  It’s a personal pleasure training device that aims to help women achieve better orgasms through kegel exercise.  The device is shaped much like the Lelo Lyla, but one surface features touch-senors that set a progressive training routine to aid women in their kegels.  Once inserted, the touch-sensor responds to every squeeze in order to tailor a routine that works for you.  There are 5 vibration-guided levels which are automatically updated to match the strength of your pelvic floor muscles.

The Smart Bead itself is fairly simple.  You turn it on, insert it, much like a tampon, and follow the program.  When the bead vibrations, you squeeze with your kegels and when it stops vibrating you stop.  Three vibrations signal the end of the program and the bead turns off on it’s own.  Each training routine lasts about 5 minutes, so it doesn’t even take a significant amount of time out of your day.  After you have completed a routine, you can activate a continuous vibration mode to test out your orgasm after your exercise.

Review: LELO Ora

Recently Lelo released one of their new products, the Ora.  They have been creating a lot of new versions of their original products lately, but I was excited, yet nervous, to try out the Ora.  I had experienced the Sasi that came out before I started reviewing, and wasn’t impressed.  I had also tried the Squeel and didn’t enjoy it either, so I was hoping the Ora would offer me a little more.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Out-ie; Oral sex simulator
  • Manufacturer:  Lelo
  • Includes:  Toy, charging cable, and storage bag
  • Materials:  Silicone and ABS Plastic
  • Size:  3″ diameter, 1.75″ wide to 1″ wide
  • Price:  $169
  • Pros:  Two modes of vibration; Multiple patterns;  Smooth silicone; Waterproof; Deeper vibration; Noticeable (but subtle) stimulation from the rotating ball
  • Cons:  On the loud side; A seam to pay attention to when cleaning;  could be bigger; Ball only has one speed; Can get very slippery with lube
  • Intensity: 4/5
  • Volume: 4/5
  • Overall Rating: 4/5
  • Recommended: Yes

Review: PicoBong Koa

Many of you have probably already heard about PicoBong, the new offshoot company from Lelo.  They sell toys marketed towards a younger crowd and I cannot deny I’m not attractive to the interest shapes and bright colors they have to offer.  They’re cheaper and battery operated as well.  Since I’ve had my hands on many other Lelo toys, I just had to try one of these and FunWares was kind enough to seen me the Koa.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type:  Out-ie
  • Manufacturer:  PicoBong/Lelo
  • Materials:  Silicone and ABS Plastic
  • Size:  4″ long; 1″ in diameter
  • Price:  $37.95
  • Pros:  Nice feeling silicone; Neat controls; Not a buzzy vibrations;  A good teaser;  Ring makes it easy to hold
  • Cons:  No storage bag; Not rechargeable and works best with non-rechargeable batteries; A bit weak; Not really functional as a cock ring; A bit expensive
  • Intensity: 2/5
  • Volume: 2/5
  • Overall Rating: 2.5/5
  • Recommended: Only if you want to pay the price for it
