kandi1Hold on to Me is a smart balls set that is part of the Bedroom Kandi collection by Kandi Burruss and OhMiBod. Babeland has graciously allowed me to review this product in exchange for my opinion and feedback.

This set of kegelcisors includes 4 weighted balls and 2 holders. It comes with a small satin storage bag and a cheap-looking display box. Each smart ball has a set of dots on it, which indicates its weight. The balls are interchangeable in the holders, which means you can mix and match weighted balls to slowly increase the strength of your PC muscles.

1 Dot: 25g
2 Dots: 30g
3 Dots: 35g
4 Dots: 40g

The balls are 1.2 inches in diameter and are made of ABS plastic. The holders are made of silicone (or not: read on).

I appreciate the versatility of 2 holders and 4 different weighted balls with this kegelcisors set. It’s a nice idea of being able to interchange the weights as your strength increases. However, there are severalĀ  deal-breaking points that unfortunately make this product undesirable.

First I was unimpressed by how thin and flimsy the strings were, because I thought that they would easily tear, like thin rubber bands. Other smart balls have a hoop string, which is more noticeably felt when wearing the ball. These smart balls are also smaller. As seen on the right, the Fun Factory Teneo Duo is clearly bigger than the Hold Onto Me balls. The size and the weight are what I want in smart balls, because I want to feel my PC muscles working and squeezing on them. When the balls are too small they are more likely to get pushed out, as I have experienced often.

Speaking of the holders being rubber band-like, the ‘silicone’ material of the holders doesn’t act like proper medical or food grade silicone (which are the two types that are hygienically safe for sexual usage). The material seems similar to rubber or some cheap combination that is not safe for one’s body. To test the material of the holders, I did a flame test, which is detailed more by Dangerous Lilly. Basically, quality silicone should not melt from the flame of a lighter. And this material did crumble and melt, as shown below.

While this test has been contested, I just don’t want to risk it with my body, ya know? I’d rather play it safe and use quality products that I know are hygienic.

To sum it up: the possibly positive features of the Hold on to Me balls:

  • versatility of balls and holders (4 balls, single holder, double holder)
  • thinness of strings (?)
  • satin pouch

The definite negative features:

  • mystery material
  • flimsiness
  • small size

Dangerous Lilly‘s detailed review for the Hold Onto Me set is very informative as well. Compared to other smart balls, I prefer the others. I own the Fun Factory Teneo Duo and the Je Joue Ami set of smart balls, and I like both. I have heard great things about the Lelo Luna Beads too, so check ’em out. All of these various kegelcisors are within a similar price range! Thanks Babeland! xoxo
