The Anovibe Vibrating Anal Beads were sent to me free of charge in exchange for a fair and honest review, by the generous folk over at Forbidden Obsession.

When asked what I’d like to review, my list included the Anovibe Vibrating Anal Beads for a very specific reason. Yes, in addition to the one you’re thinking of. My male partner loves anal stimulation but prefers slender sex toys as he finds the girth of traditional butt plugs and prostate massagers difficult to deal with. We used to have some Booty Beads (similar to the Anovibe) but sadly they eventually broke through regular use and had to be thrown away. We hoped that the Anovibe Vibrating Anal Beads would prove to be a decent and effective replacement.

The Anovibe Vibrating Anal Beads come in a white, pleasantly presented box without gender-bias, dodgy muff pics or psychedelic cartoon images. Which is nice. The box clearly depicts which product you can look forward to inside, as well as giving you some brief information about the material, power type and that kinda thing. Note that the box says that the Anovibe takes 3 x LR41 batteries which are not included; it actually takes 3 x LR44 batteries and you can see in the photos that they are included.

Taking the Anovibe out of the box I was quite surprised to discover that it’s more rigid than I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be made of a softer, more flexible material – but the PVC is so firm that at first I thought it was plastic.

There are 5 beads along the insertable part of the toy, graduating in size from the smallest at the tip to the largest one near the bottom. The maximum circumference of the largest bead is 2.75 inches. The Anovibe measures 7.75 inches in overall length, with an insertable length of 5 inches.

After the beaded area there’s a bullet vibrator inserted into the PVC sleeve which forms the handle. The box says that the vibrator is removable but I haven’t been able to remove it – it’s really stuck in there well. Maybe it will come out over time.

The end of the bullet vibrator juts out from the PVC sleeve, allowing you to both control the vibrator speed and change the batteries as required. Sadly, as stated above, the vibrator takes 3 x watch batteries. I hate them. If you don’t mind them and have a store of small vibrators which require them it might be an idea to stock up with LR44s to put in the bedside drawer. My suggestion is to get them from Amazon or eBay; high street shops charge a fortune.

Along with the rigidity of the Anovibe, I was also disappointed to be able to feel the seam down both sides of the sex toy. I do understand that this is a fairly cheap toy, but for a product specifically designed for anal use I would have expected a smoother surface after manufacture. The skin just inside the anal entrance is very sensitive and fragile, so a prominent seam on a PVC vibrator isn’t going to feel completely comfortable even with the addition of sex lube.

My partner and I like to use condoms over our anal sex toys, as this helps with keeping them clean between uses and also helps avoid any nasty smells lingering on the material. We found that using a condom over the Anovibe also minimised the chance of feeling discomfort from the seams down the toy’s sides. The Anovibe is very easy to insert and use, especially with the addition of water based lubricant. You should always use lube when using anal sex toys or for anal sex as this part of the body doesn’t provide it’s own lubricant (or at least, not a lube that most people find sexy). The vibrations travel up the length of the vibrator well and the Anovibe felt amazing inside and switched to full power. The vibrations wouldn’t be strong enough to give me an orgasm clitorally but when used anally it really pushes my buttons. Probably as I’m more sensitive in my arse as I’ve not worn it out over years of bordering on obsessive sex toy use. The Anovibe can give me an anal orgasm, especially if I use a vaginal or clitoral vibrator at the same time. Tricky, yes. Greedy, maybe. Worth it, definitely.

The vibration is controlled simply by twisting the base of the bullet vibrator. This means that instead of a set number of vibrating speeds and patterns, you are able to choose from a low intensity to highest intensity vibrations just by twisting the base to a position that feels best for you.

In summary, the Anovibe Vibrating Anal Beads makes a cheap but effective addition to our sex toy collection and it’s particularly good if you’re looking for a slender anal sex toy which also benefits from vibrations. My only issues with the Anovibe are the material (I’d prefer it to be the reliable, body safe, non-porous silicone material), the manufacturing finish (seams should not be visible or prominent enough to feel) and the battery type (watch batteries = yuk).

Update March 2015

Simply Pleasure read this review and have confirmed that there is a new version of the Anovibe with some of the improvements I suggested. Fabulous! They sent me one so that I could enjoy it, and I have taken some photographs so you can see the differences. You will notice that the battery type is now an N type (hurray) and the seam is greatly reduced. The material is smoother and more comfortable. You can buy the Kinx Anovibe here at Simply Pleasure for £7.95.
