When we hear about balls in vaginas- kegel balls probably aren’t the first type to come to mind.
The Sexiest workout you'll encounter! We've all heard about them, seen them and wondered how exactly to use them . How , why , what and which ones? We’ve heard about them by various names – kegel balls, Ben-wa balls , jiggle balls and pelvic floor exercise balls . If you have a pair and aren’t sure where to start or which to buy – read on and you’ll be a pro in no time!
So what are they ?
Kegel balls, or Ben Wa balls, have been used for centuries to strengthen vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. The small, weighted balls come in a variety of different weights and sizes to help you contract and release different muscles with ease. But Kegel balls do more than just whip your pelvic floor into shape.
Although they are renowned for pelvic floor exercise they are also known for enhancing sexual pleasure — so much so that they’re also called orgasm balls, Venus balls, love balls, and even pleasure balls.
How do I use them and how far exactly do I put them up?
You will feel the muscles contract around your finger as you squeeze. You need to insert the weight so it sits just above this muscle, approximately 2cm inside your vagina.
Phase One: For first time users, in order to help your body adapt to the ball please use 49g single ball, 30 minutes each day, for about 30 days.
Phase Two: After your body has adjusted to the single ball, you can use a heavier ball up to a 75g double ball to increase the exercise intensity, exercise for 30 minutes a day each day, for about 30 days.
Phase Three: During this phase, your body can easily control the double ball, so to step up the training intensity, you can use the 95g double ball, 15 -30 minutes a day, for about 30 days.
Who can use them ?
Anyone with a vagina can use kegel balls! Every body is different and kegel balls come in all shapes and size .
As with any exercise, Kegels come with a few risks, including:
- pain or discomfort
The same goes for using Kegel balls. The easiest way to minimize your risk is to ensure that you’re using the correct size, weight, and technique.
Although reading over the product’s packaging is a great place to start, you should also check in with your doctor.
You should also check in with your doctor before use if you:

When and for how long?
You can use, practice and enjoy your kegel balls for 15 to 30 minutes minutes a day . If you experience any pain or discomfort stop immediately – but don’t worry , it may not be the right weight or texture for you . For anyone with endometriosis or adenomyosis this may not be the right pelvic exercise for you – but you know your body better than anyone else.
