How do Kegel Balls work?
How do I use them, and what are they?
In this blog, we plunge deeper into the fantastic world of Kegel Balls, whose name makes them sound somewhat magical. Kegel Balls have been used for millennia as effective pelvic floor strengthening equipment and a distinctive sexual stimulant for people with a vagina!
Kegel Balls are NOT intended for anal play and should not be used anywhere near your bottom because they have the potential to slip into your colon and require surgical removal. Not the best way to end a romantic evening. Here you can find one of our anal play alternatives.
Let's get started!
What exactly are Kegel Balls, then?
Kegel Balls are two weighted silicone or medical-grade balls strung together on a more extended silicone or nylon “string.” These resemble the beads you would string together to construct a necklace. However, these two balls are much bigger and heavier than the typical bead. You can always be sure to discover your ideal match among the Kegel Ball graduates because Kegel Balls come in various sizes and weights to fit different body types and preferences. Kegel balls go by names, including Ben wa balls, Venus balls, pleasure balls, etc. Kegel balls are now more well-known for their various personal purposes, mainly improving sexual arousal. Kegel balls have been used for generations to tighten and strengthen pelvic floor muscles.
When used adequately and appropriately, Kegel Balls can strengthen pelvic floor muscles, which, as any mama can attest, is crucial to maintaining your bits and pieces after childbirth or as we age. Think of Kegel Balls as the vaginal equivalent of dumbbells. These objects are weights, and by squeezing them with your pelvic muscles, you quickly strengthen those muscles.
How are Kegel Balls used?
The first stages are the same whether you use the Kegel Balls for pelvic floor exercise or sensual pleasure.
- Disinfect your hands and the Kegel Balls in warm water and antibacterial soap, then thoroughly pat both dry with a clean towel.
- Take some lubrication, then lie down comfortably with your legs apart for the best administration. Some people prefer to squat, but you’ll discover your ideal position with enough practice.
- Make sure you’re comfortable before lubricating the balls and the opening to your vagina with water-based lubrication to reduce friction during insertion.
- Insert the first of the balls cautiously and with extreme caution, especially if this is your first time.
- Check to ensure the ‘string’ meant to be kept on the outside of your body is not tucked beneath the second ball after you have been comfortable in the first one since it can feel a little weird at first. This also prevents the string from being inserted, making it more difficult—not impossible—to remove the balls.
- After carefully locating the removal string, you can move the second ball inside and place them comfortably.
- You are now prepared to start your day! With Kegel Balls inserted, you can move about and do almost everything within reason, much like with a tampon or menstrual cup.
Using Kegel Balls for Pleasure
Kegel Balls have gained attention due to their involvement in 50 Shades of Grey films like 50 Shades Darker. That might be enough to convince you that “That movie isn’t for me…so they aren’t for me…” but wait, that masquerade was perhaps the most common occurrence in those films.
Kegel balls are made to pressure your vaginal walls due to their weight and size. This might be all you need for self-stimulation, or it might not accomplish anything for you. Kegel Balls have been used with external stimulation of the clitoris or erogenous zones. Some users report wearing them publicly is tremendously entertaining (or as per partner request ala 50 Shades Darker.) Whatever tickles your fancy, Kegel Balls are unquestionably a method to add a more personal touch to your everyday routine. Many patients describe the sensation as tingling or pressure, which worsens when they conduct dynamic actions like bending over or sitting down.
The longer you leave them in, the more intense the intercourse will be. Use them to begin stimulating foreplay. You must take them out before inserting another device or doing penetrative sex, so keep that in mind.
Pelvic floor exercises with Kegel balls
It is relatively easy to perform a brief pelvic floor workout that may be repeated three or four times each day once the balls have been inserted with a coat of lubrication. You run the danger of straining a muscle if you squeeze too hard or for a prolonged period.
- The Kegel Balls should be your primary focus as you contract your pelvic muscles while lying down. Your pelvic floor will be lifted and squeezed due to tightening these specific muscles, engaging and strengthening them.
- Your pelvic muscles should be clenched for three seconds before you release the pressure.
- After waiting five seconds, squeeze for three more seconds.
- To finish one set, repeat these procedures 4-5 times.
- You can perform this set 3-5 times daily depending on your strength and expertise.
- Take it easy and pay attention to your body at all times. If you feel like you’re about to pull something, you probably will, so stop and decrease the number of sets and seconds you hold until you strengthen your pelvic muscles.
