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!
Remove your jiggle balls from the packet and clean them thoroughly with hot, soapy water or a spritz of Lovehoney Fresh Sex Toy Cleaner (£6.99).
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.
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 £9.50) 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.
