I’ve really struggled writing this review of the Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Set, so many people have raved about this product and I wanted to love it but it just didn’t work for me.
It came in the usual discreet Lovehoney packaging and inside each ‘Toner’ was individually packaged in a box with lots of information and instructions for use. You also got a little white storage pouch for each which was really good.
The quality is excellent, and the materials are smooth and feel good in your hand. They also have a nice weight to them, not too heavy, so I think these would be a good starter set. They are a teardrop shape which I thought might be to make them easier to insert for newer users (other toners I have used were much more rounded).
The idea is to start with the single toner and work up to the double toner, and even though I have been using toners for about a year I wanted to start with the smaller one so I could try them out properly.
Once inserted the single ball was comfortable to wear and when moving about I could feel it gently ‘bumping’ away. My issue was with getting it in, for some reason this shape was just not working with my body. It actually left me feeling a bit sore and bruised, and completely confused as I have had things with more girth without a problem. I just could not get the angle right and inserting it was very painful (even inserting it when I was aroused hurt), but once it was in it was fine, and I did persevere.
I used these consistently every day for two weeks, and still got that pinch of pain inserting so I think the shape just does not work for me.
Then we come to removing it…….who on earth thought an ‘elastic’ retrieval cord (It’s not actually elastic just very stretchy silicone) was a good idea?? If your hand slips while pulling it out, it twangs back and hits you in a fairly uncomfortable place. I ended up having to reach inside with thumb and forefinger to pull it out by the base of the ball (much like removing a Mooncup).
On to the double toner, I found the joiner on this toner very flexible, so pushing the second ball in was that much harder. because it kept bending. and once in this was very uncomfy. However I think this is a length issue and not the toner itself, I think it is just too long (7 inches insertable length) for my body, and I couldn’t wear it comfortably for any length of time.
These won’t replace the kegel toner set I regularly use but that doesn’t mean they won’t work for you, and I do think kegel toners are a great idea. Even though I was fairly tight to begin with (years of yoga and doing my PC exercises), since using kegel toner balls I have noticed a difference; my orgasms are stronger and last longer, I am more likely to squirt, and am much less likely to ‘leak’ when I sneeze. I am also have much better control over my muscles during sex, meaning I can focus contractions to enhance the experience.
