Vaginal balls, or better known as ben-wa balls, have been used throughout the ages to help aid in better sex, and to stregthen PC muscles. These would be ideal for someone who has just given birth, or who has bladder control problems; of course, consult your doctor beforehand to make sure that it’s okay. These are also suitable for someone who simply wants to strengthen their PC muscles- stronger PC muscles have been linked to better orgasms. They can also be used during intercourse as well. However, make sure that these are only used vaginally, and not anally.
The balls come in four sizes; one low weight ball, another medium sized ball, and two larger balls; in order to use, be sure to slip the balls in the sling they come with, and it’s smooth sailing from there. I’ve never found official directions on how to use ben wa balls, but I found they best work when used five times a week, with a break on the weekend.The balls have a really nice rattling effect; it didn’t cause an instant orgasm, but it was nice to feel throughout the day.
The stats are as followed:
- 1 dot weight: 0.9 oz.
- 1 dot size: 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
- 2 dots weight: 1.1 oz.
- 2 dots size: 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
- 3 dots weight: 1.2 oz.
- 3 dots size: 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
- 4 dots weight: 1.4 oz.
- 4 dots size: 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″
The balls’ sling is made from silicone, which can be cleaned or sterilized. To sterilize, use either a 10% bleach solution or boil in hot water for three minutes; to clean, soap or toy cleaner, and warm water will suffice. The balls themselves are made of ABS plastic, which cannot be sterilized. To clean these, wash with a toy cleaner/ soap and warm water.
The packaging was a little ridiculous in my opinion; the balls came packaged in overly large box, with a sleeve and padded interior. It’s a nice idea, but I discarded it.
What Did You Think?
These balls were okay, but definitely nothing to write home about. Though I enjoyed the internal rattling, I prefer my Fun Factory Smartballs any day. When I attempted to pull the cord out of my vagina, I was worried that it would break, but thankfully it did not. I also didn’t like how I can’t sterilize the balls.
Overall, I would give the balls 3 Stars.
