Why I Chose It

For me, the Lelo Luna Beads are a surefire winner in the world of kegel balls. They’re great for beginners and more experienced users alike, thanks to the two sets of differently-weighted balls and the soft, silicone sheath. While the vagina does have a natural end to it, it’s nice to have the balls contained in a sleeve, rather than having to root around up there! The pull cord also makes it totally stress-free to remove them once you’re done.

The pink balls are only 1oz each, which is a perfect starter weight. The blue balls are a little heavier, but will still be manageable to most. Vern, who tested out the Lelo Beads, said that “even though I couldn’t feel them as much, I was still getting super aroused, especially with the heavier blue balls“. These aren’t designed to be very noticeable as you wear them, but there’s a subtle stimulation there that can really get you turned on! Many people, including myself, can rarely orgasm from internal stimulation alone anyway, so think of this a fun way to warm up.

One complaint that Vern did have is that they “look a little cheap and feel a little fragile“. I’m inclined to agree with them, especially considering how luxurious and well-designed other Lelo toys are. However, Vern also found the balls deceptively high-quality and sturdy. While they may look like they came out of a gachapon machine, they certainly don’t feel like it!

Why I Chose It

Plain kegel balls can be fun, but if you’re looking to create a regular pelvic floor workout, the kGoal Classic Kegel Trainer is my top pick. Flora tested it out, and was a big fan of the innovative ‘air pillow’ design that “felt strong, yet flexible“. You can deflate it down to 1.5 inches in diameter, and then inflate it to a snug fit once it’s inside. This, along with its 360º pressure sensor, allows the kGoal to give incredibly sensitive data readouts, which is important if you want to actually improve your performance.

Using the kGoal app, you can explore six different games that help you develop your Kegel strength and control. Flora found the app “easy to understand and fun to use“, and her favorites were the Blocks and Shapes games. It also has a ‘custom workout’ option that allows a physical therapist or doctor to create a personalized plan for you — this is another thing that makes me feel like the kGoal is a real, useful tool and not just a gimmicky toy.

One standout feature that I love about the kGoal Classic is how it uses vibrations as a biofeedback tool. It has an external arm for clitoral vibrations, and an internal motor as well. They allow you to actually feel how well you’re doing, though, as Flora found, it “tantalizing pleasure” too!

So, did it actually work for our tester? Let’s see what Flora had to say: “I have gained more control over my Kegels… not to mention, my climaxes have become noticeably more intense!

Why I Chose It

As my “App-Controlled” pick, you already know these vibrating kegel balls can be controlled via the app. However, using the app isn’t the only way you can enjoy these vaginal beads.

The device has a button on the bottom which can be used to cycle through ten modes. You can locally control the toy through the app via Bluetooth, or enable long-distance controls for partner play via wifi.

These features are great, but any app-related features rely entirely on the app. Reviews of the app have been mixed in the past, so it’s hard to predict how well these features will work for you. I personally did experience that the app connectivity was a bit unstable at times. Of course, when it was connected, it worked beautifully.

Physically, the We-Vibe Bloom has a very unique design. The second ball is completely detachable, allowing you to choose from the three included weighted balls. With weights ranging from 0.35 ounces to 1.6 punches, this selection means you can use this toy for a while as you slowly strengthen your pelvic floor.

The main issue with these vaginal beads is the price. That said, considering they include three different weighted balls and offer a ton of vibration modes and long-distance play, I’d argue it’s worth the asking price.

While I definitely wouldn’t recommend these to anyone on a budget, if you’re looking for the most customizable experience around, the We-Vibe Bloom is what you’ll want!

A Closer Look

If you seek to improve your pelvic floor with proper guidance, the Elvie trainer is a perfect match! Connecting Elvie to the app enables the feedback feature, as well as specialized programs for beginner, intermediate, and advanced user levels.

The Elvie trainer has a unique ergonomic shape that should fit most vaginas comfortably. It’s a great option for individuals looking for an effective way to improve their pelvic floor. The visuals on the app are designed as a gem, and as you contract and relax, the gem should move by the criteria of the selected workout program.

The Elvie Trainer really is a high-tech kegel exercise machine!

Pros

  • Real-time feedback
  • Helps keep you motivated
  • Keeps track of your progress
  • Easy to use
  • Discreet, stylish charging case

Cons

  • Doesn't work with Huawei phones
  • Expensive

Why I Chose It

The Elvie pelvic floor trainer is our test winner for a reason! Real-time feedback, records of your sessions and improvements, and an additional cover should the Elvie shape not match your vagina.

As for ease of use, I ranked it 90. The only reason it isn’t a 100, is that it requires interest and some level of comfortability in using Smartphone enabled products.

If you’re unsure about starting your pelvic floor strengthening journey, the Elvie trainer might be an expensive experiment. However, if you’re sure, I’d really recommend this. You’ll receive training reminders on the app, a beginner’s guide, and comprehensive information on correct movements.

It really is one of the best electric kegel exercisers, and is definitely a step up from regular Ben Wa Balls!

Why I Chose It

Being extremely easy to use, these vaginal balls ended up being my “Beginner” pick. While most kegel toys are relatively straightforward to use, these particular vaginal beads are sized and weighted with the beginner in mind.

Branding is pretty much all over this product, both on the bag and on the tag of the beads themselves. If you don’t mind showing your love for the franchise then this isn’t an issue. However, if you’re trying to store these subtly then that might pose a problem. Although, points for including a nice  storage bag! This protects them from any scracthes and makes them very travel-friendly!

Aside from the branding, everything is exactly what you’d expect. The beads are securely attached to the silicone strings, making it extremely unlikely that you’ll ever lose a bead. The materials even allow you to clean them very easily. You can also sterilize them in boiling water for a few minutes!

Paired with a high level of build quality, you can feel confident when using these balls. Removal is also a breeze, thanks to the large metal tag at the end of the string. Simply put your finger in the loop and pull slowly – of course, the metal tab might not be the most comfortable to wear in your underwear as you go about your day.

All things considered, I’d recommend these kegel balls for beginners. As long as the Fifty Shades of Grey branding doesn’t bother you, you’re sure to enjoy using the Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Mini Silver Pleasure Balls!

Things to Know Before Using Kegel Balls

Even if you’re ready to start using kegel balls for tightening your pelvic floor right away, there are a few things you’ll want to know before you begin.

Firstly, kegel ball exercises aren’t recommended for everyone. You should avoid using them while pregnant or when recovering from pregnancy.

When in doubt, you should check with your doctor to ensure that you can safely use kegel balls.

Like any other sex toy, it’s important to only use toys made from body-safe materials. You’ll also need to select a weight & size that’s suitable for you.

Always make sure to sufficiently clean your kegel balls between use. If not, you may end up with an infection.

Lastly, avoid working too hard. Overusing kegel balls can lead to fatigue, discomfort, pain, and even vaginal tearing! Once again, when in doubt, check in with your doctor to avoid any issues.

How do Kegel Balls Work?

Kegel balls, also known as vaginal beads or Ben Wa balls, use weight to apply resistance against the pelvic floor.

For this process, the balls are inserted inside the vagina and held in place by the pelvic floor muscles.

By changing the weight, a person is able to increase or decrease the resistance, allowing them to strength-train their pelvic floor muscles.

Training approaches vary. While some users only wear them for a few minutes at a time, others wear them for hours daily.

The Basics of Pelvic Floor Health

Your pelvic floor supports your bladder, urethra, and intestines. Playing such a critical role in everyday life, it’s important that you pay close attention to your pelvic floor health!

Having bad pelvic floor health can cause a number of different issues, including sexual, flatulence, and urination issues.

Fortunately, by using weighted vaginal beads, vibrating kegel balls, or by doing basic kegel exercises, you can improve your pelvic floor health with minimal effort.

Different Types of Ben Wa Balls

Ben Wa balls are known by many different names and there are some small differences between them, although the names are often used interchangeably. It’s not exactly clear where the name ‘Ben Wa’ came from, but several sources claim that the name was invented to sound Japanese while still being easy enough to pronounce and remember in Western society.

Here are the main types of Ben Wa balls to help you choose the best one for you:

  • Jiggle balls — Jiggle balls have free rolling weights inside that rock and roll as you move, providing some subtle stimulation. These are great if you want to wear your balls as a little sexy secret during the day or a date night.
  • Kegel weights — These are more aimed at exercising the pelvic floor and often come in a set with multiple different weights for you to progress through.
  • Kegel exercisers — These app-enabled Kegel trainers connect to your phone to give you bio feedback as you squeeze and release your pelvic floor muscles. They also provide personalised training programmes according to your abilities and some are even gamified.
  • Vibrating Kegel balls — If you want some added pleasure with your pelvic floor workout, vibrating Kegel balls are the way to go! If they are app or remote controlled, they are also great for some discreet public play.

What to Look For in Ben Wa Balls

Next up I’ve got my top tips on how to choose the best Ben Wa balls for you!

Always look for safe materials

As Ben Wa balls are sitting inside you for a considerable amount of time, it’s super important to make sure they are made of body safe materials that are non-porous and non-toxic.

Here are the best materials for Ben Wa Balls:

  • Silicone
  • Borosilicate glass
  • Stainless steel
  • ABS plastic

Choose the right weight

If you are just getting started with Ben Wa balls, it’s best to go for a lower weight — 20g – 40g.

You can then progress onto heavier weights as you build more strength.

Find the right size

As well as looking for a suitable weight, you need to consider the size of the balls.

Bigger balls are easier to grip onto, whereas smaller balls are more difficult, providing a more intense training, especially if they are heavy.

You also want to make sure the ball is not so big that it feels uncomfortable or painful.

Do you want added stimulation?

If you want added stimulation, you should look for vibrating Ben Wa balls or ones with rolling weights inside that move as you walk.

Remote or app control

If your Ben Wa balls have vibrations, you should also think about whether you want a remote control or app-control option. This can make it easier to change the settings while in use and allow you to enjoy discreet public play!

Easy removal loop

If you want to be able to remove your Ben Wa balls easily or are worried about them getting stuck, go for ones with a loop handle for easy removal. This is also the best option for beginners.

You should always make sure the removal cord is also made of non-toxic, non-porous materials, like silicone.

What to avoid

  • Never buy Ben Wa balls made of porous materials. They provide the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
  • Avoid materials that contain harmful substances, such as phthalates.
  • Don’t be tempted to straight for a heavy weight, as you might find that it simply slips out and you are not able to use it.

Do Ben Wa Balls Make You Tighter?

One of the reported benefit of Kegel balls is that they can make your vaginal canal feel tighter.

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence from vulva owners who report feeling tighter after training with weighted weighted vagina balls.

While they don’t actually shrink your vagina in any way, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can lead to a tighter feel.

There is still some debate about whether Ben Wa balls or Kegel balls are the most effective way to train your pelvic floor.

Here are some things to keep in mind if you Kegel ball exercises to train your pelvic floor.

Correctly identify your pelvic floor muscles

Many people are not used to activating their pelvic floor muscles so it’s super important to learn how to correctly identify your pelvic floor and how to engage it.

These are the muscles you squeeze when trying to stop the flow of urine, although you should not practice by doing this, as it can create bad urinary habits.

Instead of actually doing this while you pee, just imagine doing it.

You should feel a tightening and lifting sensation in the muscles between your vagina and anus.
You should avoid tensing the surrounding muscles of your thighs, butt cheeks, and stomach.

Tense and relax

Like any good exercise, Kegel exercises, whether freestyle or with weighted vagina balls, should involve tensing and relaxing the muscles.

Only tensing the muscles can lead to muscle fatigue and damage.

You shouldn't leave them in for too long

Contrary to what you hear, it’s not a good idea to leave Ben Wa balls in all day as this can overwork your pelvic floor muscles.

It’s best to start with shorter amounts of time on a regular basis.

You might not need to strengthen your pelvic floor

Not everyone should do Kegels!

Some people already have a hypertoned pelvic floor and doing more exercise can exacerbate the problem.

If you have any issues with sexual function or incontinence, it’s always best to see a doctor before trying pelvic floor exercises of any kind.

Can Ben Wa Balls Make You Orgasm?

This definitely differs from person to person, but simple Ben Wa balls are not necessarily designed to make you orgasm. Most are designed to help you exercise your pelvic floor or provide subtle stimulation as you move around, which can help build arousal.

That being said, some people can and do experience orgasm when using Ben Wa balls. It could also be partly due to the tensing and relaxing of your pelvic floor muscles, the slow building arousal, the psychological element of wearing them, or likely a combination of all three.

Vibrating Kegel balls can also increase the pleasure you feel from using them and increase your chances of having an orgasm.

So yes, Ben Wa balls can be stimulating and even lead to an orgasm for some people, but, if you are looking for a sex toy that takes the express route to O town, I wouldn’t recommend Ben Wa balls. Instead, I would recommend a dildo, vibrator, or clit sucker as they provide the intense stimulation that most people need.
