Review of the Fun Factory Smartballs

I’ve had the chance to have free Fun Factory Smartballs to review for Good Vibrations, and now I can say for sure that I do prefer the original Smartballs to the new Smartballs Teneo Duo version. Even if the Teneo has improvements made to them, the first one works better for me. I’m really happy with those, especially since mine came in that pretty vanilla and baby pink color. Quite honestly, I did not know this color was even available for the Smartballs, and I’m happily surprised.

Vaginal balls are made to strengthen the pelvic muscles as a Kegel exerciser. Strong pelFun Factory Smartballs Packagevic muscles help prevent incontinence, and increase sexual pleasure during sexual activity. The vaginal balls are especially recommended after having given birth to tighten the vaginal muscles. They are also used to learn to have a better control of the pelvic muscles so that you can learn to squeeze a male partner during sex. They are not recommended for anal use.

The Smartballs are made of elastomed, ABS plastic and silicone. All those materials are body safe, hypoallergenic, latex and phthalates free. It does not have a smell or taste, and it’s fairly non porous. What is made of ABS plastic is the smaller colored part that is covered with elastomed, which is the main colored part. Elastomed is a firm but flexible material, but since there is only a thin layer of that material over the ABS plastic, it’s quite firm. The only really flexible part in the Smartballs is between the two main balls. The retrieval cord, a nylon string coated with white silicone of 3 ½” long, is flexible as well, but it is not stretchable.

I have never given birth, and in my experience, when I put them in, I always have that impression that they are slightly too large for me. The insertable part including both balls is 4” long, and each ball has a diameter of 1 3/8”. But they fit just fine once I’ve moved around with them to get excited so that my vagina would expand to accommodate them. A good idea to accelerate that process is to have an orgasm right before putting them in. Not only will they fit right in, but you won’t need as much lubricant. Until then, the tip of the second ball tends to slip out, and it’s not the most comfortable sensation. The middle part needs some pressure to stay bended, and it’s what also makes the second tip slip out.

What makes the Smartballs special is that there is an inner set of balls inside the ABS casing. The inner balls move around when you stand, when you sit, when you are in a rocking chair, when you walk or exercise. Yes, I have brought those to the gym in the past. It’s so much fun. They are incredibly silent, and you would need to jump in order to hear a faint sound. In any normal conditions, no one will be able to hear them. What I like most about the Smartballs is how the vibrations feel inside when I apply a vibrator at the tip of the second ball. Since the second ball is set just on the G-spot, those vibrations really feel wonderful.

The intensity of the vibrations felt from the inner balls vary from mild to moderate, depending on the activity or if you are boosting the vibrations with a vibrator. If used for daily activities, it is not distracting, but you unless you sit without moving, you can’t forget them. Most of the time, they bring a subtle sensation that feels like a caress, and will be felt just so to put a smile on your face, and boost your happiness level. It’s a great way to make sure you will be the mood for a special evening or night with your special someone.

Since the retrieval cord has silicone on it, you should never, ever use silicone-based lubricant with the Smartballs, especially not the silicone-based sample that is provided with them in the original package along with the instructions. The Smartballs can be washed with mild soap and water or a toy cleaner.
