Hey beauties! Kegel balls/ Ben Wa balls have been around a lot longer than you might think— they have been helping women for a millennium and a half.

So what are they?

Kegel balls are small, weighted balls that slide into the vagina. Normally they come in pairs and sometimes they are linked together. They may also have a dangling string to assist in removal. They can be made of different materials, such as glass, plastic, silicon, or metal. Their color, weights and sizes vary.

Women may use them as sex toys or as part of a training regimen to increase pelvic floor muscle strength. Balls may be used for partnered fun, for solo play, and some for physical self-improvement.

How Kegel Balls Can Help You

Strong pelvic floor muscles may make sex better for all parties involved. The exercises you do with Kegel balls may not only help to increase pelvic floor strength but also increase blood flow to the related area. Another benefit is you can strengthen your ability to squeeze your partner’s penis during penetration, which will increase his pleasure.

While Kegel balls aren’t required to perform Kegel exercises, they do help. Simply insert them and either leave them in place while you move around naturally or squeeze them with your muscles in timed intervals, such as 10 to 45 seconds. Before getting started, coat your Kegel balls with a water-based lubricant.

When used as sex toys, they can be used alone or in conjunction with other toys, such as a vibrator. Leaving them inserted while you rub your favorite vibrator against your clitoris can increase your pleasure.

Being Safe with Kegel Balls

When it comes to any sex toy, safety is key. Clean with anti-bacterial soap and water after every use. Avoid Kegel balls/ Ben Wa balls made of porous materials; they typically come with a higher risk of infection.

Never use them for more than four hours at a time. They also shouldn’t be used during pregnancy or when recovering from childbirth.
