The only bug I'll ever love

I was standing in my local sex store the first time Flexi Felix caught my eye. This adorable Fun Factory set of anal beads designed with the face of a ladybug was begging me to take it home. I lusted over this little guy for a while before I actually decided I really needed it. It’s been an incredible addition to my toy collection ever since.

This toy is a brilliant design! Major kudos to whoever thought of this. It’s just so damn cute, how can you not want to put it in your butt? The handle is created as the face of a ladybug with the body of the toy being the beads. I actually thought it was a worm at first, but it Fun Factory says it’s a ladybug. I know some people are freaked out by faces on toys, but I think when it comes to anal toys the less intimidating the better. Anal toys are in a league of their own. Vibrators are becoming more and more accepted by society, anal beads are still a bit misunderstood. I think Flexi Felix could alter that. He looks as safe and comfortable as he really is. Having a toy that is safe, looks fun and gentle was a huge motivator when I purchased Flexi Felix.

This 100% silicone toy is 12 inches long with an insertable length of 10 inches. The handle is large enough that there should be no concern about the toy accidentally sliding into your rectum. The 5 oval beads escalate in size, allowing each individual user to choose how much they are comfortable inserting. The largest bead is 1 inch in diameter. You can insert 1 or 2, or you can insert all of them. The choice is really up to the user. The oval beads make penetration so much easier than the round anal beads I’ve used in the past. The pleasure comes from slowly inserting each bead as well as removing the beads. The preferred moment to remove the beads is directly before orgasm.

Apply a water based lubricant to the toy before insertion. Since the toy is silicone, silicone lubricant should not be used on Felix. Fun Factory actually includes a great water based lube sample with the toy. Their toy lube can be purchased separately. Inserting this toy is extremely easy. The key with any anal toy is just to relax your body. Hold the space above the bead you’re inserting and gently slide it into your ass. I like to pause for a minute to enjoy the sensation and let my body adjust around the bead before I attempt to insert the next one. Your hands will get lube on them and the beads tend to get a little slippery when you’re trying to insert them, but this was never a big problem for me. For additional pleasure try placing a bullet in the eye socket of the ladybug, this will create a vibrating sensation throughout the toy.

This toy comes in 3 colors. I prefer the pink or blue, but if you are concerned about mess you may be more comfortable purchasing it in black. To wash the beads just use antibacterial soap and hot water. It is extremely easy to clean.

I love this little guy! My previous experiences with anal beads had been mediocre at best. This completely rectified my opinion of anal beads. Flexi Felix has quickly won a special place in my heart and ass.

To purchase this wonderful toy, I suggest using a sex store I trust, EdenFantasys.
