Until recently, I only owned one pair of jiggle balls and they were the Lovehoney BASICS ones, so I decided that it was about time I purchased another pair. I had specifications this time around though, I wanted them to be made from silicone, be slightly heavier and have a retrieval cord. I found a few suitable options, but it ultimately came down to these and the Lelo Luna Beads. This pair happened to be slightly cheaper and fit in with my plans to buy a couple of other pieces from the Fifty Shades range, so I opted for these.
The Tighten and Tense Jiggle Balls arrived quickly and discreetly as expected from Lovehoney. The balls were packaged inside a simple, classic and understated box with a picture of the product on the front, with the back reading some information about the product along with cleaning directions and instructions for use. Inside the box, there was a shiny foil packet which contained the jiggle balls and kept them sanitary. I do wish a storage pouch had been included as this would make storing them and protecting them from lint much easier.
I love that these jiggle balls are much sleek than the BASICS ones, as it definitely feels like I made a step in the right direction. I think this has a lot to do with the material, as these ones are made from silicone rather than ABS plastic. The silicone feels silky smooth to the touch, of great quality and surprisingly, doesn’t have much of a drag to it at all. It of course still requires a sprinkling of water-based lubricant, but not as much as I’d thought I’d need.
I was slightly concerned upon discovering how stretchy and flexible the removal cord is, but it did feel sturdy despite this and has survived around 30-40 uses with no sign of wear and tear, or thoughts of it snapping during use. I have used them obviously quite a few times since I got them and have no worries regarding the build quality.
The Tighten and Tense Jiggle Balls are easy to insert (with the aid of lubrication). It doesn’t take very long to get them both into position after you’ve done it a few times. I found that inserting one ball at a time is the best way to go and being relaxed is crucial. If you’re not relaxed, they may cause some discomfort. It takes some minimal pressure and then your body does the rest. I naturally clench around these jiggle balls, but can purposely add more force if I want to. I don’t require much as I’m not particularly trying to tone up down there, but the option is available for those who wish to use them for that purpose.
The retrieval cord then hangs just outside of the body, allowing a fast and smooth removal once you’re finished. I opt to wear these for 15-20 minutes at a time, sometimes a while longer, but like I said, I’m not trying to tone up too much, so I find this is all that is necessary. They are comfortable enough they could be worn for longer though. I almost forget they’re there until I feel the roaming weights start to shift when I move forwards or use the stairs. I find these weights provide some very gentle and subtle stimulation, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
There are no indents on the balls so they are really easy to clean with water and toy cleaner. I think they’re suitable for beginners and those who like lighter weights, like myself. All in all, a great product, with not much to complain about.
