  • Have used anal beads before and want to size up
  • Know you enjoy anal vibrations
  • Want to explore deeper anal penetration
  • Love having a partner control your toys

  • Are new to anal beads or anal play
  • Crave very strong rumbly vibrations
  • Prefer the fullness of a plug


The b-Vibe Cinco anal beads contain an impressive three vibrating motors to tingle your tush! Designed for intermediate to advanced level anal play, these silicone anal beads start out small and increase up to 1.3 inches in diameter at the widest point. They also come with a remote control, making them perfect for partner play and teasing!

Not again!

Taking the b-Vibe Cinco beads out, I was once again hit with the consequences of my own actions! They are sizeable! But I’m nothing if not ambitious, when it comes to sex toys at least! Plus, the great thing about anal beads is that you start off with the smaller beads and you don’t have to insert them all the way to enjoy them!  These vibrating anal beads are similar in size to the Lelo Soraya Beads but with one extra bead and a slightly thicker section between each bead.

Cuatro is quite enough!

So far I’ve only made it to bead four and that feels fantastic! It’s deep and filling but bead five was a bit too much for me in terms of depth for now. The beads were very easy to insert, and I loved having a remote control for them! I played around with all the patterns and actually quite enjoyed some of the pulsing options as they feel more rumbly and the stimulation seemed to radiate more somehow. I really enjoyed using them with my Lelo Dot for some clit stimulation, as I was able to enjoy some slow building pleasure that built up to a really great orgasm. I’ve yet to try the Cinco anal beads with a partner, but I actually think they will be more fun with a partner in charge!

I like that the plain black design of the b-Vibe Cinco anal beads is completely gender neutral, but aside from that there's not a lot to say about how they look. I like the overall shape of the beads and there's a nice gradual increase in size towards the base, but the last two beads are almost the same size. I think the base fits quite comfortably between the cheeks and doesn't get in the way during PIV sex.

I'm really happy these beads came with a remote, as trying to change the settings without completely removing the toy is always so fiddly, even if it's a partner doing it! It also makes it much more fun to use with a partner for some power play! The remote has an on button, increase/decrease buttons, and a button to change the pattern, so it's very easy to use. The middle button can also be used to reset the vibration to a steady vibration, rather than having to cycle through all the patterns, which is fantastic as there are 15 on them! Also, I tested out the range and it works seamlessly from the next room. I also really like the bright lit power button on the base of the toy, as it also shows that the beads are charging and when they are fully charged.

The silicone is velvety soft and feels fantastic. They have three separate vibrating motors in the three largest beads, but the vibrations travel fairly well into the last two beads and through the centre chain. The remote feels a little cheap and plasticy but that doesn't impact the use at all.

The b-Vibe Cinco are definitely in the luxury price bracket. And they are luxurious to use and come with some nice extras, including a storage pouch, anal play guide, and a cute unicorn sticker. I really can't fault their quality at all, but I'm not sure I would personally pay this much for vibrating anal beads. However, if you really love anal play and want to invest in some large, vibrating anal beads, these are a great choice.

b-Vibe Cinco -

The vibrations of the b-Vibe anal beads are fairly strong, not the strongest but still very satisfying! The higher speeds, especially the steady vibration, can feel a little buzzy, which I don't particularly enjoy. However, the lower speeds and the pulsing patterns feel a bit more rumbly. I cannot stand vibration patterns in clitoral toys but I enjoy it much more in anal play. The vibrations are relatively quiet but get a bit louder if the base is resting on your bed. The battery life isn't the longest which is a little disappointing but aside from that the b-Vibe Cinco anal beads performed very well!

The b-Vibe Cinco anal beads come in a sturdy blue cardboard box with a slip cover on the outside. The front of the cover shows the beads and remote in true to life size, which did make me wonder if I'd been a little too ambitious again! The back and sides also show what else you get in the package. My only criticism is that there were two plastic inserts, which I think were unnecessary.

b-Vibe Cinco -

The b-Vibe Cinco anal beads are splashproof so you should take care not to full submerge them under water cleaning them. Aside from that these silicone anal beads can be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap or sex toy cleaner. Make sure they are completely dry before storing in the storage pouch. You should also avoid using silicone lube as this can damage the silicone in the toy. Instead, stick to water-based lube.

  • Three vibrating motors
  • Beads gradually increase in size
  • Soft silicone
  • Remote control up to 30 ft
  • Decently strong vibrations

  • Splashproof but not waterproof
  • Not the longest battery life
  • Some settings get a bit buzzy

Overall, I think the b-Vibe Cinco are a really great addition to any anal lovers collection! I love that you can use the remote to change the settings or play with a partner, as it makes everything so much easier and more seamless. They are definitely better suited to those with a fair amount of anal experience as they are pretty big in terms of length and width. The only major consideration is the price. I think they are only worth it if anal play is a regular part of your sex life.

They are splashproof and b-Vibe states that they are shower friendly.

No, they have a physical remote control but are not app-controllable/interactive.

As they are made of silicone, you should only use water-based lubrication.

No, they are aimed at intermediate to advanced levels. If you are a beginner, they make a smaller version called the Trio, which has just three beads.
