“Holy shit this is making my hand numb, it’s so buzzy. Luckily, my ass doesn’t give a fuck when it comes to buzzy vibration!”
That was the first thing that came to mind when I turned on the VeDo Quaker.
I’ve talked about anal beads in the past and been interested in trying them, so it is fortuitous that the Quaker is very non-threatening for a first-timer like me. Where butt plugs can stimulate the prostate or g-spot, or can be worn for a longer amount of time,1plugging you up anal beads are meant more for a feeling of fullness and the real stimulation is supposed to come when they’re being removed. Think about when you have an orgasm: your how body clenches and unclenches muscles. Anal beads mimic this feeling in the booty & can trick the body into orgasming from it since it’s literally making you clench and unclench your ass. Amazing.
HOW THIS TOY WORKS
The VeDo Quaker comes in “Into You Indigo,” “Midnight Madness” (purple) and “Just Black.” I guess it’s better than pink, purple, and black? It’s 8.25” long and 1.4” wide at the widest insertable point with 5 increasingly larger beads/bulbs. The base of the toy unscrews so you can insert 1 AAA battery for its three power settings. When pressed, the silver button on the bottom will cycle through 3 power settings followed by 9 patterns. To turn the toy off, hold down that button.
HOW I USE THIS TOY
The first time I used this toy, I wasn’t interested in getting past the first three bulbs and honestly couldn’t. Mind you, this was the first time I’d ever used anal beads of any kind. The top three beads of the Quaker are very flexible with pretty thin necks between them, while the bottom two bulbs have a much thicker neck since this is where the one battery is housed. The neck between the bottom two beads is not flexible at all. The base of this toy slightly concerned me–even though it is flared so I don’t have to worry about it being internalized–there are two spots between the silicone/hard plastic that (a) are the only spaces that separate your body from the battery and (b) could easily collect gunk. Even though the Quaker claims to be waterproof, I’m not interested in corroding a battery with feces/lube.
The first time I used the Quaker, its buzzy vibrations were completely obliterated by the Magic Wand which I used simultaneously against my clit (and the Wand, not the Quaker, actually got me off).
The feeling in my ass was ‘meh.’ On the second try, I got to the fourth bead and noticed a much different feeling since there was a thicker neck for my ass to hold on to. I tried to move the toy in and out to mimic the feeling of orgasm via anal beads, and that felt good in the same way that stimulation at the entrance to my vag feels good. So nice but this resulted in my forearm feeling so cramped the next day that I didn’t really want to try it again. Still, determined to get full use out of the Quaker, I charged up one of my trusty Tangos, thinking the smaller motor would not be (as) distracting in comparison to the battery powered one in the Quaker. I could focus more on anal stimulation but still get off. But without a powerful vibe making my clit feel great, I didn’t love the Quaker. This time, I was able to get the entirety of the toy (except the base, of course) into my butt, and the pressure/size of the largest bulb was great, similar in size to my fave Princess Plug. The length of the toy, however, I was not into at all.
It just isn’t comfortable. The first three bulbs are ok, the fourth one sucks, and getting to the last one is ugh. And while the base of the toy is actually pretty comfortable sitting between my cheeks, it’s really easily to accidentally turn this toy on or off during insertion. But after a few minutes of masturbation, the buzziness of the vibration starts to make my bum tingle in a more stinging and painful way. Turning it off helps, but at no point did the Quaker feel truly comfortable within me. Maybe anal beads aren’t for me since they’re longer and I’ve always liked plugs (even large ones) for the feeling of fullness.
At $24, the VeDo Quaker isn’t horridly priced. It actually might be a good toy for someone interested in trying out anal play, since they could slowly graduate to more beads and it does have vibration (even if it’s buzzy). Buy it from Peepshow Toys here.
LUBE & CLEANING
This toy is covered completely in silicone, which can bond with silicone based lube. I recommend a water based lube so you don’t risk ruining your toy.
The Quaker is listed as waterproof, so in theory it can be submerged and cleaned with soap and water or a 10% bleach solution. Because it’s powered by a battery, I recommend using a wipe or wet soapy/bleachy washcloth instead.
- Good for moving from smaller to larger sizes
