Beginner’s Guide to Ben Wa Balls
Welcome to our new Beginner’s Guide to Ben Wa Balls, we’ve put this guide together to help get you started. We have several in-depth articles on the site that go into more details on each topic we cover below but this guide pulls it all together in one place. Ben Wa Balls are small balls that are inserted into the vagina to assist with Kegel exercises and for sexual pleasure. They are often hollow with additional smaller balls inside that will move around as you move to cause subtle vibrations. Some ben wa balls are stringless but the most popular choices these days are mostly ben wa balls attached by a string like the ones shown to the left.
This guide will cover how to use them, and answer many common questions beginners have. We’ll also help you choose which kinds of Ben Wa Balls are the best fit for your situation.
But first, let’s get a few things straight…
If you read a lot of online reviews for Ben Wa Balls you’ll notice that they seem to be all over the place, you might see several 4-5 Star reviews and several 1-star reviews, how can this be?
It’s not uncommon to see a few 1-star reviews of a good product for a variety of reasons (shipping, bad customer service with a seller, etc.) but it seems to be more widespread with this product regardless of the particular brand or model, why is that?
It all comes down to expectations of course. They feel good, usually really good, but if you’re looking for something to bring you to the point of orgasm within a few minutes you might end up being one of those 1-star reviewers. It doesn’t have to be that way though if your goal is something of the more immediate nature there are still good options for you, it’s just best to know which ones will satisfy your expectations from the start. Stick around to the end to learn which types of ben wa balls you should consider…
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that could improve your sex life for the rest of your life, you’re on the right track.
On to the benefits…
Kegel exercises have been shown to be very effective at strengthening the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles. What does this mean? You’ll be tighter and stronger which, aside from the obvious sexual benefits, can also help prevent or repair a myriad of issues that women commonly have after pregnancy.
Already given birth? Don’t worry, it’s not too late for you to gain these benefits too. If you get started before or during pregnancy it can help give you a head start and provide some benefits during labor itself but serious medical issues aside, it’s never too late to get started. The body is changed by pregnancy and labor but it has an amazing ability to recover over time, you can help it and ultimately come back stronger and toner with the addition of kegel exercises to your healthy lifestyle.
Let’s get down to business…
Using Ben Wa Balls is quite simple, you can follow these steps to get started:
If you’re feeling adventurous you might have thoughts of wearing them while going about your daily business. If that sounds exciting to you then go for it, but I’d definitely recommend you get very used to them before you consider trying something like that. It might not be as easy to keep them in for longer periods of time as you think to build up to it slowly to avoid an embarrassing… incident.
Some women worry that they might get stuck inside the vagina, especially when they see pictures of the stainless steel ben wa balls that aren’t attached by a string. Don’t worry though, there’s no place for them to go. Sometimes it may take a little more effort than others to remove them but they’ll come out. That said, let’s be clear that this only applies to the vagina. If you feel compelled to use them or their smaller cousins… elsewhere… you’ll need to be more careful.
You can also use them during sex to add some additional stimulation for both you and your partner.
Choosing the best fit…
There are many different types of ben wa balls available and they’re each better suited for different goals and experience levels.
