30mm of hollow medical grade surgical steel shaped into a sphere ball and mirror polished, inside that sphere is a smaller weighted sphere rocking back and forth with each and every movement. Double chains hanging at a length of 9cm from the base of the sphere with two 10mm balls attached at the end of each chain.

Is this what you’re thinking of?

Ben wa, ben wah… any which way you pronounce these or call these the many different names they answer to, what these are, are small balls that can range in size from marble sized to two or more inches in diameter. Often made of steel these little gems can also be made from glass and different silicone coatings.

Using Ben Wa Balls For Pleasure

But aside from toning your vagina, do these little dynamites send you into waves of pleasure from each and every movement?

After the release of the “Fifty Shades” series many women have wondered what these little balls of delight feel like, but many women are often discouraged or disappointed with the outcome. This is typically because their expectations don’t match the outcome, if you go into this expecting orgasmic results like you would with a vibrator – this is not going to happen and you will be very disappointed very quickly.

Strengthening The Pelvic Floor Muscles With Ben Wa Balls

The results these balls give aren’t always apparent straight away, it’s about body knowledge and in another way it’s about having your own little secret. Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles through Kegel exercises can have a weighty long-term impact on your sex life. Many women benefit from having more control and deeper orgasms with regular and long term use, aside from the health benefits of strengthening your pelvic floor.

In saying that many women do find using these little gems pleasurable and enjoyable, and the bonus is the real benefit that comes from long-term use which won’t only be noticed by you but by your partner as well. For those women who wear their ben wa balls during the day and then engage in sexual encounters later that day or evening have spoken of having more intense orgasms. For many women this is due to the fact that they have a naughty little secret no one else knows about, the fact that there is a constant reminder that pressure is being placed on their G-spot is arousing and the build-up can have a climaxing experience.

Other Benefits Of Ben Wa Balls

If you are looking for a sex toy that’s a little more “typical” these balls might not be your go to, but there are vibrating options you can purchase and these might be more suited for your particular needs and desires. If you are looking for something with hidden class and elegance that is more of a tease and a subtle reminder that something is inside of you, these balls are the way to go!

Whether it’s the way they look, feel or make you feel these little gems hit you on all levels. They are placed in the most sensitive part of your body, so clearly hygiene is a common concern no one wants embarrassing infections or reactions. Antibacterial toy cleaner is all you need for cleaning, a few minutes soaking and a gentle scrub with a sponge or cloth. These toys are made of non-rusting metal so soaking will not cause any damage or harm to your product and because it is a non-porous material it will not retain, hold or store any bacteria but I do highly advise keeping all toys in separate storage bags to make sure there is no contamination from other toys or substances, and I always highly recommend cleaning before use as well.

If you are naturally well lubricated or need a little help, it is always important to consider the use of lubricants, especially with surgical stainless steel sex toys. Although they are sleek, glossy and slippery, lubricants are always incredibly helpful and will make using your steel toy a breeze. There is no lubricant that is recommended with steel toys, any lubricant in the range can be used.

The element of elegance and class associated with steel sex toys and this ben wa ball is no different. The look, the feel, and the thought of wearing this toy is for some enough to increase pleasure and arousal, it has a beautiful smoothness to its design along with a naughtier side with the chains. You can use this ben wa ball in other ways such as temperature play and massage, running the smooth ball over the body is ideal for foreplay and exciting sexual arousal. When it comes to many toys imagination is vital, and imagination is the only hurdle we face stopping us from pleasure.

The Greatest Kegel Trainer On The Market!

Pelvic floor muscle weight lifter Kim Anami

If you have read some of my previous articles, you may have noticed that in about 90% of my posts I mention Kegel exercises. This is for a very important reason! If there’s one thing that I get excited about selling in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres, it’s these products so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see the incredible Elvie come into the store.

Elvie The Award Winning Kegel Exerciser

Anyone who is serious about pelvic floor training needs to know about the Elvie because, quite simply, it is the greatest Kegel trainer on the market! Kegel exercises are so important for all women to complete, with genetics, high-impact sport, aging, pregnancy and childbirth contributing to weak pelvic floor muscles. Weak pelvic floor muscles can result in urinary incontinence, vaginal prolapse, poor core strength and difficulties post-childbirth. Strong pelvic floor muscles can mean these issues are avoided or even resolved, with also more intense and powerful orgasms achievable when completing regular Kegel exercises. So if your physical health is not enough of a reason to get going with Kegels then think about the pleasure that can be reached from committing to them.

Kegel exercises can be completed without a product however from my personal experience and from what I have come to understand about women, it is so easy to forget to do them. Investing in a Kegel training product means that you keep yourself accountable to complete them, with no toy more easy and exciting to use than the Elvie!

Elvie Measures The Strength Of Your Pelvic Floor Muscles

Bluetooth technology has been a fairly recent addition to the sex toy industry, with most of the toys equipped with this feature used to control vibrations. The Elvie is a Kegel trainer that, when inserted into the vagina, measures the strength of your pelvic floor muscle contractions by connecting to the smartphone application. This app includes a range of 5 minute workouts and indicates whether you are completing the exercises correctly. These app workouts are interactive, with the gem on the screen rising to allow you to visualise the muscle contractions. The app keeps a record of the strength of your muscle contractions which allows you to track your progress as time goes on.

Elvie’s Ergonomical Shape

The shape of the Elvie is reminiscent of a tadpole (Ok sperm if you want my honest first thoughts) with the larger end being inserted into the vagina with or without the changeable cover and the tail kept outside of the body. The cover is included for those who like a firmer, more comfortable fit in the body. It is important that the Elvie is not inserted too far into the vagina, with the app able to tell you if any adjustments are needed.

Other Features Of The Elvie

Elvie is made from high quality medical grade silicone that is very easy to keep clean. It is waterproof so using a mild soap and washing it under warm water will keep it spick and span. I am also thrilled that with the enormous range of pink and purple sex toys on the market, the Elvie is a beautiful mint green colour.

The Elvie includes a discrete and sleek carry case that also works as the charger. The battery life of the Elvie can last up to one month, with the USB charger easy to use.

To cover against any manufacturing faults, the Elvie includes a 2 year warranty. This will give you the peace of mind that you are making a worthy investment for a product that will last.

I am certainly not surprised to hear the rave reviews Elvie has received since its debut. As well as featuring in countless women’s magazines, the Elvie is recommended by physiotherapists, obstetricians and personal trainers worldwide.

The Importance Of Maintaining Your Pelvic Floor Muscles

I have mentioned much about the physical benefits of Kegel exercises however what I feel most passionate about are the psychological effects achieved from connecting to our bodies and vaginas. There are many women in the world who are completely disconnected from their bodies, with feelings of shame or embarrassment when it comes to their genitals. Using a Kegel trainer like the Elvie not only leads to greater physical health but can mean that women can become more connected to and accepting of their genitals. Committing to the exercise a couple of times throughout the day – For example: upon waking in the morning, on your lunchtime break and before going to sleep at night – means that you are taking time for yourself, your pleasure and your health. It is crucial for women to take time to fill up their own cups and do something for themselves so that they can be more alive, loving and energised in their lives. I believe that the Elvie can be a gateway to a more embodied, connected, healthier and pleasurable life for women so for this reason it gets a huge thumbs up from me.

The Key To Award Winning Pelvic Floor Muscles

Award winning pelvic floor muscle exercisers

I would like to start off by thanking JoyDivision for providing me with the Joyballs Secret for review. The Joyballs Secret is a sexual health aid for women called a Kegel Exerciser which is used to strengthen the Pelvic Floor Muscles. The box says:

“No strings attached!”

Because there aren’t any! It has a patented removal loop which is used to easily insert and remove the product during use. The removal loop also connects the two colourful teardrop cases that house the jiggle balls. I was surprised to find that they are actually seamlessly connected with a watertight design which means that there are no cracks that any bacteria can hide after you have cleaned it.

What I was surprised to find on the box’s cover case, was a sticker which said:

“TUV International Certification – Tested for harmful substances”

This instantly put me at ease as it let me know that this product is bodysafe, not toxic and phthalate free. The material that Joyballs Secret is made out of is called “Silikomed” which is clinically and dermatologically tested to be hypoallergenic and skin friendly.

What’s Included With The Joyballs Secret

I was now ready to discover what is inside this box so I took the cover case off. I found inside a plain white box with the words “JoyDivision… my lovestyle!” inscribed in silver writing. The box uses a strong magnetic seal to keep it together. When I opened the box I was happy to find a storage pouch, personal lubricant, instruction manual and the Kegel Exerciser safely tucked away in foam. The Kegel Exerciser which I received is in a deep red colour but it is also available in the colour green, pink, purple, dark blue and black; So you can choose one which will match your sex toy collection.

How Do The Jiggle Balls Work?

The first thing I did when I got my Joyballs Secret was test how the jiggle balls reverberated within the Kegel Exerciser. A good way to feel how they would work is to hold your hand out so your palm is flat and it faces upwards. Place the Kegel Exerciser on the palm of your hand. Move your hand in quick circular motions and let the jiggle balls naturally bounce off each other on the sides of the material that the sexual health aid is made out of. The jiggle balls are an important aspect of the product because when they reverbate it causes the Pelvic Floor Muscles to naturally contract which will work them out with minimal effort.

When I tested the Joyballs Secret I was surprised to find that they reminded me of meditation balls. Meditation balls are normally made with a hard material like ceramic with jiggle balls inside that bounce around when moved. The movement causes the product to reverberate and makes a sound much like a bell for sensory stimulation which can be quite relaxing.

What I loved about Joyballs Secret was that rather it being made out of a hard material they made it out of silicone which causes a trampoline like bounce and it also dampens the sound of anything within the sexual health aid. The only way anyone could possibly hear the sound of the jiggle balls is if they held the product right next to their ear and shook it which is what nobody ever does. Furthermore the sound will also be dampened by your body and your clothing. Joydivision describes the sound as:

“Quiet as a whisper and discreet for uninterrupted training”

Use Just The Right Amount Of Personal Lubricant

When using the Kegel Exerciser you will need to take into consideration the length and the weight of the sexual health aid so that you can decide how much lubrication you will need to use. The Joyballs Secret has an insertable length of 11.4cm and weighs 85g. If you require lubrication, I recommend that you massage a thin layer directly onto the Joyballs Secret. You only need a little amount. If you use too much lubricant, it can make it difficult to insert properly and it will be difficult to carry inside of you as you walk around. If you place too little lubricant on it, insertion and removal can be incredibly uncomfortable. It is important to know that this step can take some trial and error but within time you will get the knack of it. I highly recommend using the personal lubricant that is included in this package as it feels silky smooth and it lasts long enough for the purpose of using the Kegel Exerciser.

The Joyballs Secret Is Flexible!

An surprising feature of the Joyballs Secret was that it has a middle part which is entirely flexible. It is so flexible that it allows the teardrop cases to touch each other. At first, I was confused with the idea that it was this flexible. You see, I am used of sex toys being ergonomically designed for perfect stimulation of the g-spot but this product is not a sex toy, it is a sexual health aid. The flexibility is there so that people are able to use it during their daily activities whether that’s going for a walk, sitting down to watch a television show or even going down to the post office in your car to pick up some mail. Due to the length of the product, it would be entirely uncomfortably to sit down with something that big inside, but with the flexibility of the Joyballs Secret it will move with your body with every action that you take.

How To Use The Joyballs Secret

You will need the Kegel Exerciser to lay straight inside of you. If you have a look on the bottom right hand corner of the box, you will find a picture of what it should look like when it is fully inserted. The removal loop will also be inside of you, so you will need to ensure that you have cut your fingernails short and softened off the edges, this way you can easily retrieve it without accidentally hurting yourself.

When using the Joyballs Secret you will need to start off by being relaxed. You can listen to some music, maybe you can even use a sex toy for some pleasurable stimulation. Once you are ready and lubricated you can hold the first teardrop case and begin inserting it. Thanks to the gently tapered tip it makes insertion a breeze. You should now have the first teardrop case inside, now you can insert the second teardrop case.

The second case is more difficult than the first because of the flexible part that is in between. If the Teardrop Cases touch together it may cause the jiggle balls to not bounce around. It may take a couple of tries to get this right because during the insertion process you will begin to learn how your body works in a way which you may had not previously experienced before. If insertion doesn’t work properly the first time, you can try again when you feel more relaxed.

When you do have the Kegel Exerciser fully inserted, you may be surprised to find that the patented removal loop is actually completely inside you! It alarmed me at first but this is the exact reason why you need short finger nails because you need to be able to retrieve it. I’m going to be completely real with you, if you are able to naturally push it out it will feel like you are laying two eggs.

If you are new to exercising your pelvic floor muscles, I recommend you try doing some standard Kegel Exercises laying down. When you are ready you can sit up and feel the weight of the balls as you do your exercises. Then you can work forward onto other harder activities like standing up, walking and doing daily activities. Like lifting any type of weight or exercising any muscle, it is a gradual process that you can build upon to become bigger, stronger, faster and fitter. I feel that the Joyballs Secret is great addition for standard to experienced users of Kegel Exercisers. They are the best sex toys to use maintain a woman’s sexual fitness levels.

When you have finished exercising, you can remove it then clean it. It is incredibly easy to clean, you just need to use some soapy warm water and if you would like to take extra care of it you can definitely use some antibacterial sex toy cleaner. In fact they are dishwasher safe. You can also use the pouch to store your Joyballs Secret to protect it from the any items coming in contact with the surface of the product.

There is so much thought and careful consideration which went into the design of this product. Every piece of the product was thought about individually. So much so that they have won countless awards including a Reddot Design Award, Premis Delta Award, Universal Design Award and an Erotix Award for best female product. To top all of that off, JoyDivision’s products are all made in with love in Germany so that they are able to maintain the highest quality standards.
