Ben Wa Balls are small weighted balls that have been around since about 500 AD. They can be used for sexual stimulation or for exercises to increase the strength of the pelvic floor muscles (Kegel exercises). These and other shaped vaginal weights are recommended by gynecologists and obstetricians to increase vaginal elasticity and bladder control. Vaginal weights help strengthen the vagina, which improves sexual performance. Additionally, the feeling of the balls in the vagina constantly massaging the vaginal walls has also been known to cause intense sexual arousal.
The balls exercise the vaginal muscle by forcing the vagina to flex in order to hold the balls inside. Doing exercises with the balls daily will tighten and firm your vaginal muscles. It has been proven that more intense orgasms occur with stronger Kegel muscles. Also, stronger Kegel muscles heighten the sexual encounter for your partner as well; they allow you better control and grip when having intercourse.
To use the balls, first empty your bladder to make it easier to hold them in. Insert one ball at a time, can be done easier with one leg lifted. Once inserted squeeze your muscles to hold the balls inside. The first time may feel awkward, but you will adjust to the sensation in a few minutes. Try to relax once you are comfortable with the feeling of them moving inside you. You can leave them in anywhere from a couple of hours to all day. To remove lift one leg and push down with your muscles or jump up and down. Don’t worry it’s not possible for the balls to vanish into your body.
In the old days women would insert the balls and rock back and forth in their rocking chairs for stimulation. If you have a rocking chair this idea might still work for you today.
