More On Kegel Tools / Ben Wa

Love it or hate it, Fifty Shades of Grey shed some light into some lesser-known corners of playfulness and pleasure. It also helped illuminate a particular pair of silvery balls we call Kegel tools! Also known as ben-wa balls, geisha balls, vaginal weights, and pleasure beads, these weighted balls have been around way longer than Christian and Ana. There’s little documentation, but it’s believed that they were first used by Japanese courtesans around 500 AD. Usually round and almost always weighed, these tools help strengthen a woman’s pelvic floor, improve bladder control, inspire arousal, and contribute to more intense orgasms. Quite the resume, indeed.

Ben wa balls are best known for Kegel exercises — flexing of the pelvic floor. Pleasure is just a secondary effect, though definitely noteworthy. Kegel exercises feel the best when you’re clenching and releasing around something. This stimulates vaginal tissue and many women find that lubrication production increases dramatically as well.

Ben Wa balls and Kegel weights come in different weights and sizes, all the better to suit different levels of experience, tolerances to weight, and the effect you desire. For more straightforward Kegel workouts, a simple set of balls works nicely. Beginners should start with a larger version in a lighter weight — it’ll be easier to hold in place. You can always graduate to something heavier and smaller as your muscles tone and tighten. Remember that it’s physically impossible for ben wa balls to become “lost” in the vaginal canal. The cervix prevents anything from traveling any farther, so don’t worry! Lots of beads and balls come with a retrieval cord or secured in a girdle for easy removal and positioning.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Ben Wa balls?

Ben Wa balls, also known as Kegel balls, are weighted objects that are inserted into the vagina to strengthen the pelvic floor (or PC) muscles.

How are Ben Wa balls used?

When using Ben Wa balls for pelvic floor strengthening, one can simply wear them while moving about naturally or use them as part of the following active pelvic floor strengthening sequence: With the balls in place, squeeze the pelvic floor muscles for 3 seconds, then release for 3 seconds. If possible, repeat 10 times in a row ( work to build up to 10 over time).

What is the difference between Kegel balls and Ben Wa balls?

The main difference lies in how they’re marketed. Generally, Ben Wa balls are promoted as a tool to boost sexual pleasure, while Kegel balls are treated as more medical. Additionally, Ben Wa balls are often made of metal, while Kegel strengtheners are more likely made of silicone. While there are some differences between the two, both are great at strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, ultimately increasing sexual pleasure.

How long can you use Ben Wa balls?

To avoid overexertion or tearing, users should start with lighter balls and squeeze for short periods. Ben Wa balls should never be used for more than 6 hours.

Are Ben Wa balls effective?

Yes. Ben Wa balls allow pelvic floor muscles to strengthen faster than Kegel exercises without weights. Additionally, for folks who are postmenopausal, Ben Wa ball use can help increase the thickness of the vaginal walls and boost natural lubrication.

Are Ben Wa balls safe to use during pregnancy?

Consult with a medical professional before using Ben Wa balls during pregnancy.
