• How to Use Kegel Balls

    It's well known that a toned pelvic floor means a tighter vagina and improved continence, but did you know that strong pelvic muscles also lead to more powerful sensations during arousal and stronger, better orgasms for all involved?

    Jiggle balls are designed to help you locate your pelvic floor muscles and work them effectively. Also known as Ben Wa balls, Burmese balls, geisha balls or love balls, Kegel balls (which is their proper name) are inserted into the vagina and by holding them in and clenching around them you will target and strengthen the correct muscle groups.

    Jiggle balls contain small weighted balls on the inside that roll around as you move, creating some excellent internal sensations and reminding you to squeeze against the ball.

    How to Use Kegel Balls 

    Jiggle balls are easy to use and very discreet - practise at home first and as you increase in confidence, you can even wear them while you do the shopping!

    Tracey Cox Supersex Toner BallsRemove your jiggle balls from the packet and clean them thoroughly with hot, soapy water or a spritz of Lovehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner (£5.99).

    Apply a generous amount of lubricant like the Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lubricant (£6.99) to the outside of the jiggle balls and the entrance of your vagina. This will help you to insert them and also exercise your pelvic floor muscles as your vagina learns to grip them and hold them in place.

    Gently insert the first ball by pressing it against the opening of the vagina until it slides in.

    There will usually be a small length of plastic or string between the first and second ball so tuck this inside you and start pressing the second ball against your vaginal opening.

    Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls Once the two balls are inside, you can push them in further, until you feel that they're safe and secure. The removal loop or string should remain outside the body.

    Your body is automatically trained to hold the balls inside you, so you don't have to worry about them falling out! However, if you want to remove them at any point, simply pull at the removal loop gently until they slide free. It may be a good idea to re-lubricate the entrance to the vagina before you do.

    Lighter and larger balls like the Tracey Cox Supersex Toner Balls (pictured above left £18.99) are suitable for beginners as they are the easiest to hold in. Smaller and heavier kegel balls like the Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Balls (pictured right £24.99) will challenge you as your strength increases.

    You can keep your kegel balls in for as long as feels comfortable, but you should make sure you never try to pee with them in. Always remove your kegel balls first.

      Hi, I started using the sex toy about two months ago. The problem I have is storage after use. Can it be soaked in dettol water after use to prevent smell and possible infection from the air. This is because if it is washed only, it usually emits some bad odor.

      Please kindly advice me on what to do.

      Ugochi.

      Hi Ugochi E Osuji,

      The best thing to do is to clean your balls thoroughly with a sex toy cleaner and store them in a drawstring pouch, purse or make-up bag that you keep nice and clean. I use a small make-up bag in which I keep sex toy cleaner, tissues and a storage pouch. That way I can clean and put them away in a toilet cubicle when I'm out and about. :)

      Hey,
      I was wondering, I'm getting the balls to make myself tighter and actually achieve a better orgasm but what I'm curious about is can we have them in and do other sexual activities such as anal or foreplay? I just wanted to know if having them in and doing anal will be harmful or actually more stimulating for myself and my partner.

      Kara.

      Hi Kara,

      There's no reason why you can't wear your jiggle balls during foreplay and anal - in fact, you'll find that using Ben Wa balls helps you get aroused!

      Enjoy!

      - Nicole
