We all know we should do our Kegel exercises regularly, but do we? For me, Kegels have always been like vitamins. I know they’re good for me and that doing them daily would probably pay off in the long run. But for some reason, I always seem to have trouble fitting them into my busy schedule of … you know, trying out sex toys.
Lelo advertises Luna Beads as a “combined pleasure / fitness system for the circum vaginal and pelvic floor muscles.” Translation: a really easy way to do Kegels—and one that will, ideally, feel pretty fucking awesome while you work out. Given the chance to effortlessly strengthen my pubococcygeus (PC) muscle while getting some pleasure in the process? Yeah, you could say I was interested.
Luna Beads offer a fairly simple system for making sure you stick to your Kegel exercise regimen. Unlike weighted dildos which require, you know, actual effort, Luna Beads claim to work out your PC muscles just by being inside your vag: just the effort of keeping the beads inside causes your PC muscles to flex, and (supposedly) as you walk around, the shifting of the beads causes additional flexing and pulsing.
In addition to being extremely easy to use, Luna Beads are also highly customizable. Each set comes with four beads (two lighter pink ones and two heavier blue ones) that can be mixed and matched depending on your vaginal fitness. If you’re just getting started, start at the lowest level with one pink ball; vaginal strongwomen can put the two blue balls into the figure eight-shaped harness and feel the burn.
Did Luna Beads give me super strong PC muscles? I’m not entirely sure. But did Luna Beads feel pretty awesome banging around inside my cooch? Yes. Which was all the post-workout reward I needed.
There’s just one catch: in order for Luna Beads to truly be effective, you’re supposed to use them every day for thirty minutes. With my hectic schedule, I still have trouble pulling that off. But at least I know that as long as I remember to put them in, the Luna Beads will do all the rest of the work for me … and help get me off at the same time.
