Reviews of the 7 best kegel exercisers
Test Winner Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer
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!
- ✅ Real-time feedback
- ✅ Helps keep you motivated
- ✅ Keeps track of your progress
- ❌ Doesn't work with Huawei phones
- ❌ Expensive
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!
You should buy the Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer if you...
- Want to keep track of your training
- Need continuos motivation
- Like variety in your training
- Enjoy high-tech devices
You should not buy the Elvie Pelvic Floor Trainer if you...
- Don't have a smartphone
- Are unsure of your level of effort
- Just want to test if kegel training is for you
Cheapest Lovehoney Main Squeeze Kegel Balls
The Lovehoney Main Squeeze is a heavy double! It’s a great option if it’s time for you to increase your weight from approximately 70 or 80 grams. The duo-ball shape fills your vagina, enabling connection to a larger area of tissue.
I’d recommend you buy pelvic trainers in this weight class if you are an advanced user. I categorize an advanced user as someone who has trained with lighter weights and progressed in weights over time.
Inside the two balls, there are little free-roaming balls that offer extra stimulation and weight distribution in accordance with your exercise position.
- ✅ Great for progression for advanced users
- ✅ Easy to insert with lube
- ✅ Simple design make cleaning easy
- ❌ Not suitable for long-time wear due to heavy weight
- ❌ Only available in one color
If you’re on a pelvic floor journey and have trained with other kegel exercisers, the Main Squeeze would be a great next step! It’s cheap, made with high-grade silicone, and has free-roaming balls inside for extra stimulation.
Use it as an addition to lower-weighted exercisers or as the next step in your pelvic floor strengthening journey. Always remember to use a silicone-compatible lubricant, and give it a thorough cleanse with a toy cleaner.
You should buy the Lovehoney Main Squeeze Kegel Balls if you...
- Have experience with kegel balls
- Want to progress from a lighter weight
- Like a cheap, manual option
You should not buy the Lovehoney Main Squeeze Kegel Balls if you...
- Have no experience with kegel exercisers
- Don't like the duo-ball design
- Prefer a neutral color
Beginner Tracey Cox Kegel Training Set
This Tracey Cox set is perfect for beginners, especially beginners who are invested in their kegel-training journey! It’s a set of six progressive oval-shaped weights. The lightest weight is 50g while the heaviest is 130g. You can check out the four remaining weight specifications in the features.
I’d recommend starting with the lightest weight, and slowly begin progressing within a month or when you feel it’s time. I do not recommend skipping any weights, as you don’t want to overwork or strain your muscles. For simple differentiation, the weights are color coded!
- ✅ Set of six enables easy progress
- ✅ Easy to differentiate between weights
- ✅ Sleek design
- ✅ Neutral storage box
- ❌ Too large for some
- ❌ No color options
If you’re a beginner without pelvic floor issues, this is a great value-for-money deal! It ensures easy weight increase due to six options, so you won’t have to buy a heavier option after a month of training. The oval shape is great for easy insertion as well. You just coat the exercise device with a water-based lube of your choice.
This is a suitable set for beginners and anyone who would like to invest in strengthening their pelvic floor. Just remember the contract and relax movements, and you’ll be all set for an exciting training journey!
You should buy the Tracey Cox Kegel Training Set if you...
- Know you are invested in kegel exercises
- Like an all-in-one solution
- Are a beginner
You should not buy the Tracey Cox Kegel Training Set if you...
- Are unsure about training your pelvic floor
- Are used to heavy kegel weights
Weights Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead
This is the gorgeous Lelo brand’s take on a kegel exercise device. You get two sets of balls that can be used alone or together, depending on the weight you prefer. It’s designed with a silicone holder, that keeps the balls in place. This also ensures simple weight replacement and proper cleaning.
The set comes with four kegel balls total, and you are using a maximum of two at a time. You can use one by itself, just make sure it’s one of the two with an attached string. This would be ideal for anyone who has given birth since the lightest weight is 28 grams.
- ✅ String attached to both kegel weights for easy removal
- ✅ You can mix and match weights for optimal progress
- ✅ Duo-ball design for extra stimuli
- ✅ Single-ball option
- ❌ Some reviews say you can hear the kegel balls in a quiet room
- ❌ You have to disassemble all components when cleaning to ensure proper hygiene
- ❌ On the expensive side
The Lelo Luna kegel trainer is a great option for those who like the opportunity to change weights or amount of balls. The duo-ball provides stimuli to a larger area, and the diameter increase between the two balls increases the complexity of the contract/relax movements. The silicone material is easy to clean, however, this set requires complete disassembly of components to ensure optimal hygiene.
They do call them pleasure beads, and while they could provide pleasure, it’s not a given. It depends on your level of sensitivity, and whether the contract/relax exercises are correctly performed. Some vagina owners experience an increase in sensitivity, while others don’t. Regardless of pleasure, it still helps you train your pelvic floor.
You should buy the Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead if you...
- Like the possibility of switching out weights
- Prefer the stimuli of two kegel balls
- Want to improve your pelvic exercises
You should not buy the Lelo Luna Pleasure Bead if you...
- Prefer one kegel ball
- Are on a budget
Vibrating We-Vibe Bloom Vibrating Kegel Balls
While orgasm ratings are high, this is a review of kegel exercisers, and my concern is that vibrations may distract from actual kegel training. Luckily I have an easy solution; turn it off and use it manually for workout purposes, and turn on vibrations for pleasure purposes. There you go! Two useful products in one!
It comes with interchangeable weights that you can easily replace by unscrewing the top ball from the bottom piece. When screwed off you’ll notice the charging entrance as well. The kegel balls are labeled 1 to 3, ranking from lightest to heaviest weight. Use it manually from the control button, or explore endless vibration possibilities and pleasure combinations in the We-Vibe app.
By connecting the device to the We-Vibe app, you can also set up your partner’s phone to control the vibrations from anywhere in the world! That’s right, I’m talking about long-distance play. The We-Vibe Bloom may be on the pricier side of things, but it also offers a lot of cool features!
- ✅ App-controlled
- ✅ 10 pre-installed vibration speeds and patterns, and unlimited vibrations in app
- ✅ Beginner-friendly design
- ✅ Powerful vibrations for pleasurable sensations
- ✅ Quiet and discreet
- ❌ The app can be a bit difficult to use at times
- ❌ Too loud for public use
- ❌ Only available in one color
Vibrations: The vibrations of the We-Vibe Bloom Vibrating Kegel Balls are silent, quite powerful, and somewhat rumbly
A wonderfully versatile option that, in my opinion, is equally a kegel vibrator as it is a trainer. Therefore, purchasing We-Vibe Bloom should solely depend on what your needs for pelvic floor training are.
Compared to the Elvie that is specifically designed to improve pelvic floor health, I’d say the We-Vibe Bloom leans further towards pleasure by adding regular sex toy features like vibrations and long-distance mode. The definition of kegel training is the contract/relax movements, and I’m currently unsure if vibration modes match this.
However, I do enjoy how the vibrations can add variety to the training, and I appreciate the We-Vibe Bloom basically offering the functions of two separate toys in one high-quality product. I just haven’t found research supporting the benefits of using kegel vibrators over regular ones for pelvic floor strengthening. With that said, the We-Vibe Bloom ranks high in pleasure, and a lto of user reviews online do state satisfactory workout results.
You should buy the We-Vibe Bloom Vibrating Kegel Balls if you...
- Enjoy internal vaginal vibrations
- Want an app-controlled kegel exerciser
- Prefer multiple weight options
- Are looking for something to mix training with pleasure
You should not buy the We-Vibe Bloom Vibrating Kegel Balls if you...
- Prefer kegel trainers without technology and vibration
- Would prefer a wider diameter
- Are also looking for external stimulation
- Prefer metal or glass
Yoni Egg Chakrubs Jade Yoni Egg
This one can cause a commotion! While the wonderful history of Jade eggs traces back to ancient China, newer research has found that some are porous, which means that bacteria and mold can breed in the many minuscule holes.
I’d suggest this beautiful, cold yoni egg for aesthetic and spiritual purposes. It weighs 90 grams, which makes it suitable for intermediate and advanced users, however, too heavy for beginners.
The Chakrubs brand provides a lovely description of how the Jade Egg can increase your energy, and using it can attract good luck and authenticity. Not bad, right?
- ✅ Very beautiful
- ✅ Natural Jade Crystal
- ❌ Porous and therefore unhygienic
- ❌ Hard to remove due to no string/cord
Regardless of its history and beauty, I’m having a hard time recommending the Chakrubs Jade egg as a consistent training tool. Training your pelvic floor requires consistency, and with the hygiene and possible health hazards, it just isn’t worth the risk.
According to Google, Jade is associated with the symbolism of love and wealth. Chakrubs brand has informed that Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, and Amethyst are non-porous, while the Jade Egg has closed porosity. This does, unfortunately, mean that I can’t recommend using the Chakrubs Jade Egg for consistent pelvic floor training.
If you’re curious about yoni eggs, check out our guide on what is a yoni egg.
You should buy the Chakrubs Jade Yoni Egg if you...
- Don't intend using it continously
- Like the sentiment of its history and symbolism
You should not buy the Chakrubs Jade Yoni Egg if you...
- Intend to go all-in on strengthening your pelvic floor
- Want a long-lasting, hygienic kegel trainer
Fifty Shades Inner Goddess Pleasure Balls
Indulge in your own Fifty Shades adventure with this Inner Goddess pleasure ball. Cold sensations from the heavy steel core enhance stimuli, that for some, extend beyond the exhilarating rush from exercise.
I only recommend this for advanced to expert-level kegel users, simply due to its heavy weight of 221 grams. The weight doubles from some brands that offer 130 grams as the heaviest weight. Therefore you should use this with caution to avoid any damage. If you are an advanced user and are intrigued by the Inner Goddess, I recommend inserting it when lying on your back. That way, you can get a feel of the weight without contracting to hold it in place.
- ✅ Cold sensations from the chrome and steel
- ✅ Heavy weight may excite some
- ✅ Fun addition for Fifty Shades of Grey fans
- ✅ Solid cord make removal easy
- ❌ Very heavy
- ❌ Risk of tissue damage if you go from light weights to this
- ❌ Looks a little difficult to clean due to the silicone knots in between kegel balls
This is the Arnold Schwarzenegger of pelvic floor strengthening devices. For further elaboration, I would compare a 221-gram kegel ball to the weight class of bodybuilders.
As mentioned in the top section, beginners should start off with 30-50 grams to fit their level of experience. So if you’re anything in between beginner and experienced, I recommend you use the Inner Goddess with caution.
If you purchase these sleek silver balls, I’d suggest you also try and use them during foreplay or masturbation. Move the string while lying down, and explore the sensations of the cold heavy pressures in your vagina.
You should buy the Fifty Shades Inner Goddess Pleasure Balls if you...
- Are very experienced with kegel balls
- Are sure of your vaginal health
- Have experience and want to challenge yourself
You should not buy the Fifty Shades Inner Goddess Pleasure Balls if you...
- Are a complete beginner
- Are training your pelvic floor, and haven't progressed from lighter weights

More Sexual Wellness Products
To me, sexual wellness is first and foremost being comfortable with your own emotional and physical presence. Therefore, I won’t correlate sexual wellness-related products to the feeling of comfort in oneself. However, I will share a few recommendations that may encourage you to further explore what sexual wellness can mean to you.
Maude Private Massager
The Maude Private massager is one of the most discreet vibrators out there! This delicate-looking sex toy is perfect for external stimuli. Light and buzzy vibrations are great for the gentle exploration of both erogenous and sensitive areas.
The tapered shape fits well in your hand, making it easy to navigate through the 3 different speeds. It’s USB-chargeable and you get approximately 2 hours of use per charge.
I think the neutral design makes it an appealing option for all genders. Therefore I’d recommend the Maude private massager to anyone interested in exploring either their own or a partner’s reaction to external stimuli.
Olivias Boudoir Massage Candle
Sex candles are amazing for enhancing sensual togetherness with a partner. A warm, melted candle can promote feelings of excitement and eroticism.
The candle is made with soy, olive, and coconut oil. While you’re waiting for it to melt, you can indulge in the sultry scent of bergamot and sandalwood. Olivia’s Boudoir tuxedo candle is great for stimulating the senses of smell and touch.
This is a sexual wellness product I would definitely recommend to anyone seeking to expand intimacy without it necessarily encouraging sexual acts, but rather embracing a sensual safe space.
Liberator Sex Wedge
The Liberator wedge is an extraordinary addition for those interested in exploring how different pressures and positions can enhance the stimulation of orgasmic zones.
The wedge is a sex pillow designed for deeper penetration and comfortable navigation. The 27-degree angle enables you to achieve deeper contact with your own or a partner’s sweet spots. In the spirit of sexual wellness, you could also use the wedge to visualize your body from a different perspective.
High-density foam prevents the body from sinking, even during fast movements. For optimal hygiene, you can wipe the wedge off with sex toy cleaner, or wash in the washing machine.
Kegel Training Safety
At this point, we’ve covered the correct movements during exercise, the appropriate weight according to your level of experience, and the difference between manual and tech-based kegel trainers. Therefore, this section highlights important information on how you can ensure your body’s comfort and safety whilst using a kegel trainer.
How to: Kegel Training Safety
I’ve listed tangible advice in the sections below, but before you scroll, I’d like to offer you some suggestions to help ensure your training fits your intention.
Most vagina owners without medical, or afterbirth conditions already have a toned pelvic floor. Instead of overworking it and potentially creating any tissue damage, I encourage you to look inward to identify your needs.
Here are some questions to ask yourself entering weighted pussy workouts:
- Why do I want to train my pelvic floor?
- Do I have information on the current state of my pelvic floor?
- Is it necessary for my health?
- Am I doing this for myself or others?
I hope these questions provide you guidance, regardless I have to say; if anyone with zero medical experience unsolicitedly suggests you use a kegel trainer to tighten your vagina for their pleasure, you should run.
If you have any uncertainties regarding your individual safety using a kegel trainer, you should consult with a medical professional. This is especially important if you have a medical condition, are pregnant, or have recently given birth.
I suggest start off using a kegel ball once a week, and thus slowly adjusting to engage your pelvic floor. I’d rather you prioritize connecting with your muscles during training and observing them the following days.
As a beginner, you should contract/relax for a minimum of 5 minutes, and a maximum of 10. As you slowly progress, you can increase the duration.
When you’re able to perform the correct movements for the recommended duration, you can increase the weight of your kegel trainer.
Do Pelvic Floor Exercises Actually Work?
From the research I’ve conducted during this review, I haven’t been able to find one definite answer on the effect of pelvic floor exercises. I found no research supporting any evidence of positive effects in healthy vagina owners who haven’t given birth. I did find research on varying effects in women over 65, pregnant women, and a few medical conditions. You can find elaborative information on that, and other important aspects in the following sections.
To those of you who’d like a short answer, I’m sorry I got a little carried away doing research. The short answer is; Yes, pelvic floor exercises work in some instances, however, if you are young, haven’t given birth, and have no history of vaginal conditions, you’re pelvic floor should already be strong and toned. The final section tells you the benefits you can expect from training your pelvic floor.
I have found research supporting pelvic floor exercises positive impact on urinary issues. It’s a small study that addresses urinary issues in 50 women over 65, and is conducted by dividing the women into one treatment group and one control group. The women in the treatment group regularly performed kegel training, and the control group didn’t. The study found a significant decrease in urinary incontinence 8 weeks after treatment.
I do not recommend using a kegel trainer whilst pregnant. However, a study from 2016 have found positive effects of pelvic floor exercises during pregnancy. While the method of training isn’t specified, the study doesn’t mention kegel balls, or any other kegel exercise device. Therefore, I assume they used the contract/relax movement exclusively. The study followed a total of 60 women who were equally divided in one treatment group and one control group. The treatment group showed indications of fewer urinary issues post-birth. During pregnancy both groups experienced a significant decrease in pelvic floor strength.
One of the common vaginal conditions are vaginismus. If you have vaginismus, or a similar condition, you should consult with your doctor before using a kegel trainer. Some medical professionals offer dilators, which help progress in circumference instead of weight.
This is especially for vagina owners with no medical conditions who haven’t given birth.
Wearing your Kegel balls before intimate play is an excellent way for you to trigger natural lubrication and enhance sensitivity for an extra thrilling experience.
How to Use a Kegel Exerciser
Here’s a step-by-step guide to using a kegel trainer. This applies to beginners, intermediate and advanced users.
You should contract and relax continuously. Contracting for long periods of time can cause tissue damage.
You can either lie down, walk around, or do simple activities while doing kegel exercises. Explore to find your preferred training positions.
As a beginner, your workout sessions should be between 5-10 minutes. If you’re an intermediate or advanced user, you can do 10-15 minutes.
Some vagina owners insert their kegel trainer for several hours without doing contract/relax movements. You can do this to induce sexual arousal.
When inserting the balls, take slow, deep breaths, and relax. Apply water-based lubricant to the kegel ball, and your vaginal opening to ensure maximum comfort.
Similar procedure to insertion; slow, deep breaths while gently pulling the retrieval string.
How to Clean a Kegel Exerciser
Clean your kegel trainer before and after each use. The most hygienic cleaning method is lukewarm water mixed with sex toy cleaner. Lukewarm water dissolves vaginal fluids more effectively than warm water due to the vaginas low pH-value. Combined with a specialized cleaner, it removes lubricant and bodily fluids.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
What is a Kegel Exerciser?
A kegel exerciser is a training equipment to engage and train your pelvic floor muscles. Some use it to improve mind to vulva connectivity, others with the intension of enhancing orgasms, and some in accordance with a medical professional to support or improve health issues. It's most often shaped like a ball or an egg, and its features vary. Many kegel trainers have an additional weighted ball inside, interchangeable weights, or even vibration.
