Get Fit with Ben Wa

from the good folks at Adam & Eve

Fifty Shades at Adam & EveUntil recently, Ben-Wa balls were one of the most misunderstood and under-appreciated sex toys on the market. Until, that is, Christian Grey (of the infamous 50 Shades of Gray) so eloquently inserts two shiny silver balls into the waiting Anastasia, and single-handedly caused the latest craze in sex toys — Ben Wa Balls.

These toys can range in size from smaller glass balls to larger balls with a weighted ball-bearing that moves inside the balls whenever you shake them, or walk, or vacuum (you get the idea). If you’ve ever tried a pair of Chinese worry balls, Ben-Wa balls feel and work similarly but are much smaller. They produce a varied, grinding-type of sensation that provides superior vaginal or anal stimulation. There are Ben Wa Balls that are connected with a string, vibrating love balls, silicone smartballs, real skin balls, and fetish balls, even remote control Ben Wa Balls.

The small, weighted spheres were originally intended to enhance sex for men, who enjoy the feel of the balls when inserted just before penetration—women also enjoy the increased feeling of fullness and the pressure that Ben Wa balls provide. Ben Wa Balls have the added benefit of strengthening the PC (pubococcygeus) muscles and are sometimes recommended by professionals for muscle training. Strong PC muscles can aid in a more comfortable childbirth and in bladder control. Many women start with larger balls and move to smaller ones as their muscles get stronger. It’s orgasmic exercise!

How to Use Ben Wa Balls to Strengthen Your PC Muscles

The PC, or pubococcygeus, muscles stop the flow of urine and can also tighten and strengthen the vaginal opening. Many women want to pump up their PC muscles for sexual enhancement, especially after having children or as they age. Using Ben Wa balls in this manner is simple: make a selection (plastic if you’re a newbie, and the type with a string for easy removal), and insert them into your vagina as you would a tampon. Now go about your day as usual, concentrating on using your muscles to hold them inside your body.

Try it for a couple of hours each day, sticking close to home and avoiding strenuous activity until you’re certain you can keep the Ben Wa balls securely inside. As your muscles gain strength, you can graduate to heavier, metal versions to challenge yourself. You’ll certainly feel the difference during sex—when your lover enters you, give him a good squeeze to show off your hard work!

Of course, Ben Wa balls are used purely for pleasure, as well. Many women report feelings of arousal while these toys are inside them, due to the pressure and additional sensations they yield.

Ben-Wa Ball Stimulation

The main attraction is that Ben-Wa balls provide constant stimulation whenever you move and the motion of the balls is completely random so you never know what to expect and you never get accustomed to the sensations like one can with vibrators or other sex toys. Ben-Wa balls are also quite enjoyable to work in and out of the vagina or anus (be sure to choose the type with connecting string) because their shape differs so much from the straight shaft found on so many other sex toys. Many users find the new shape to be stimulating just for the sake of variety.

Bedroom KandiEnjoy the evolution of the BenWa ball with the sensual updated design of the Bedroom Kandi Hold On To Me, four interchangeable weighted ben wa balls to strengthen your vaginal muscles for more powerful orgasms, a tighter vagina and improved control. To use your exercise spheres, simply slip them inside your vagina. Your kegel muscles will naturally flex to hold them in place as you walk around and move, but you can also squeeze them while sitting down to give your muscles a workout.

Each ben wa exercise ball is loaded with a small weight that moves in sync with your body to create a gentle vibration for low-key stimulation. The more active you are, the more the balls vibrate, meaning the balls are much more stimulating while you’re jogging or swimming than sitting behind a desk during work.

After selecting which ball or balls you want to use, just pop the silicone holder around them. We suggesting starting with a single ball and using the single ball holder and then gradually increasing the ball’s weight as you work your way up to the double holder. Each holder features a retrieval cord for your safety.

Adam & Eve recommends the hold on to Me Exercise Spheres for any women interested in Kegel exercises or low-key vaginal stimulation.
