Review: Flexi Felix

Or, Anal Noob’s Adventures.

It’s not a secret–when it comes to anal play, I’m not exactly schooled. Using a fairly large toy when I started experimenting, it almost scared me away all together. But I decided to keep my eyes open for a more realistic starting point and try again after I calmed down and regrouped.
Fascinations thought that the Fun Factory Flexi Felix anal beads might be a good choice for me. The Flexi Felix beads are only 1′′ (the largest bead) in diameter and the chain has an insertable length of 10′′ which I felt was a much more reasonable starting point.

That’s so good so far. But, oh, I’ve been nervous.

I knew what was waiting for me inside the day I got my package from Fascinations–the toy that would be my first. With trepidation, I opened the box, first noticing how discreet and well packed it was. Inside was the 100% silicone toy itself, a few inserts with directions and photos of some other amazing Fun Factory toys, as well as a small water-based lube package.

Now, while I had never completed any anal play successfully before, I knew from the experiences of other people that it was extremely helpful to be fully excited before starting. Not an issue. I set out to get excited, but not fully climaxed before the Flexi Felix was in place, using my trusty handmade glass dildo and my perfect pet vibe.

I put down the dildo and vibe when I reached my goal of excitement and opened the lube package. I lubbed up both myself and the Flexi Felix using the entire packet. LOTS of the air.

Insertion has been… interesting. It was initially uncomfortable until each bead popped in all the way, but they felt nice once the beads were IN. And with the Flexi Felix, as you get closer to the head, the beads gradually get bigger, so I felt like I was well prepared by the time I got to the biggest.

I took a few moments to get used to the feeling once all five beads were in place. It had been…. different. Not unpleasant, but unfamiliar. I grabbed my perfect pet vibe after becoming familiar with the sensation of anal stimulation and went back to clit stimulation. Wow. It’s been very nice.

When I found myself at the climax margin, I grabbed and inserted my glass dildo. The feeling of being simultaneously stimulated vaginally and anally was nothing short of fantastic. For more internal stimulation, each thrust with the type of dildo nudged the beads. I enjoyed that very much.

I climaxed quickly and again, while inserted, I enjoyed the stimulation that Flexi Felix provided.

And then some frightening things happened. For some reason, I just assumed it would be as simple as a gentle tug to take the beads out. I mean, when I’m done using it, a dildo slips right out of my vag… should it be the same concept, right? Well…. no. Not at all. It was a bit of an ordeal to remove the Flexi Felix, just because I didn’t know what to expect. I put my fingers in the sweet / strange little eye holes and tugged gently. Nothing.

I get irrationally worried right now that I’m not going to be able to get it out. This obviously makes things more….. tense…. and thus makes it even more difficult to remove them.

I realized the mistake I made, and I wanted to go to a quiet place. Then, I prepared myself for some pressure once I was completely relaxed, and pulled gently.

Whew! Four to go, one down. And because they were removed, the largest bead was the first out, so with each bead removal things got easier.

Once the Flexi Felix was safely removed, under running water I was able to clean it easily. And because it’s 100% silicone, I’ve also been able to boil it to sterilize (you can also bleach it or throw it on your dishwasher’s top shelf without soap) so it can be shared after sterilization between partners. If you’re not planning to sterilize, but plan to share, make sure you’re using a Flexi Felix condom.

Let’s discuss this toy. The Flexi Felix’s quality is impeccable. No obvious seams, silicone medical grade, lovely color (available in black and pink), and very affordable. Also, note that only water-based lubes are safe for this guy because it’s silicone.

I am extremely impressed not only with the Flexi Felix quality, but also with the fascination of carrying high-quality toys like this at affordable prices. Thanks to Fascinations for helping to get this anal newbie down!
