If you aren’t familiar with what Ben Wa Balls are you can take a look at this wikipedia article to find out more, but basically they are a tool for helping to strengthen your PC or pelvic floor muscles during your Kegel exercises as well as possibly giving you all kinds of pleasurable feelings as they wriggle and kiggle around inside your vagina whenever you wear1 them. Women used to wear them and sit in their rocking chairs causing them to really ‘Wriggle & Jiggle’ – They sure could make the morning train commute more fun for some!
The Balls them selves are quite small at around 1.7cm wide2 the same size as an Australian 5cent piece and they have some weight about them, but I have no way to weigh them – bugger.
They are both solid & Identical, made from Chromium Steel coated with 24K Gold plating. The manufacturers claim that this 24k gold plating won’t chip crack or peel, I’ve dropped them, played marbles with them and done all I can to try to prove them wrong…but I can’t, they really don’t chip, crack or peel. They are also non porous and can be boiled to sterilise them without damaging the coating.
But...and this is a pretty huge BUT that’s where the positives end. Just like ‘Cockzilla‘ the teeny Tiny size of these Ben Wa Balls made me a little scared.
Other Ben Wa Ball style sex toys usually have a string or other design feature that keeps the balls attached to one another along with a string or other device that enables safe & easy removal. This pair of balls have neither. So they can possibly both go off in opposite directions with minds of their own rather than staying put, and they can decide to be difficult when you remove them, but as long as you only put them in your Vag they won’t migrate elsewhere – But if you have recently had a baby wait until you have had your post-natal check up and know your cervix has closed again, as if your cervix is open they could possibly migrate and cause you harm.
I have tried using them, but that trial didn’t last long. Each time I tightened my PC muscles I could feel my muscles pulling the balls slightly deeper. I got scared about just how deep they were going, realising they may try to turn into squatters and refuse to leave despite my wish to evict them. Admittedly I tend to panic easily though,
The first one was friendly and left without protest, but it’s friend was hoping to set up camp. I couldn’t push it out, it wasn’t moved by Gravity, and wouldn’t dislodge when I tried jumping up and down to get it out of there. Eventually my finger had to go fishing to find it and personally evict the squatter!
I swear getting my kid to leave the premises was less stress inducing than getting ball #2 to leave.
I own my Vagina and although it loves to have visitors it really doesn’t cope to well with those who try to move in, especially when they fail to pay the rent! No matter the size of the guest or the room they visit, if there isn’t a simple and easy way to remove them after their stay I choose to refuse them entry.
NEVER Ever consider using this set – or any other for Anal play, It simply is not safe, no matter what you read.
But – there’s yet another big But … they do make nice fancy marbles! – I do like to try and find some kind of positive in everything.
I can’t wait to try out the Fun Factory’s Smart Balls, they are pretty, they are quite a bit larger, they are attached to each other & come with the all important string for removal! They are #1 on my want to Review List.
EDIT July 11th 2010
My Much more Experienced and therefore Wiser Sex Toy Reviewing Comrades have pointed out in the comments below My great worry for your safety was greatly Un-Justified. Unlike your butt, your Vagina is nott a never ending tube, nothing can get lost never to appear again. So Some of the things I had said are now gone & I apologise for being so very harsh on these balls. My review has been edited somewhat, however the danger to post-partum women is very real, but considering my kid is 13 My personal fears were pretty much un founded.
I gave them a second chance last night, eviction was much easier, but still I would like them to be a little bigger and at least attached to each other, that way if I can reach the first one the second must follow.
Again though I am a woman who has given birth, although vagina’s are ingenious in there ability to bounce back to their original post baby size, the topography of mine changed greatly after giving birth. After further contemplation it is possibly the problem with removing ball #2 was as much my Vag’s fault as the balls. I’m sorry I was so mean to you little ball #2 🙁
