Pretty but Pointless

I'm very disappointed in these ben wa balls. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I gave them a two star rating because they do have a few pros, but not where it really counts.
Published:
Pros:
Non-porous & phthalates-free, easy to clean, convenient storage box.

Too small, doesn't strengthen muscles, a bit difficult to remove.

extremely useful review
I own a pair of Fun Factory Smart Balls but I like trying out different types of vaginal muscle exercisers. Since I love glass toys, I thought I'd give these Ben Wa Balls a chance. Seeing that they were only 1" in diameter had me concerned, but they are so pretty and seemed like they'd be fun, so I couldn't resist.

Well, I should've went with my gut about their size. I had no problem inserting them and feeling them go in, but once they were in it was like there wasn't anything there at all. I wiggled, I jiggled, I jumped, I ran--nada. No sensation whatsoever. Admittedly, I did experience delight in the knowledge that I had these glass balls inside me and no one knew. However, I need more than that to justify owning a pair of these and recommending them to others.

I figure the main reason why I didn't feel these inside me is because they're not weighted. Most Ben Wa Balls have an inner, smaller ball that rolls around inside the larger outer one while you move. The only things these balls contain are pretty little flowers.

I wore these for many days and did not notice any tightening of my vaginal muscles. In fact, I think the only time my muscles were used or tested was when I removed the balls. Since they have no pull-out string and are very small, they are on the difficult side to remove. I found the best to way to get these out is to squat, stick a finger (or two) inside of yourself, and bear down with your vaginal muscles. Once you feel a ball, curve your finger around the balls in a come hither gesture and you should be able to hook it out. If you have any issues with removing these, do not panic. You can't control your breathing or your muscles when you panic, so do your best to stay calm. The Ben Wa Balls will eventually come out. You just might have to work at it.

The balls are very smooth so I didn't need any lube to get them in. However, if you do need lube you can use any kind you'd like with these. I'd say less is more when it comes to lube with glass toys. They're easy to clean. I just use hot water and my Climax Bursts toy cleaner. Be careful when cleaning them with soap and water as they can be hard to hold of. I dropped one of mine into the porcelain sink where I was cleaning them. The ball now bears a couple of slight scratch marks.

I love when glass toys come with their storage and these come with their own little black satin-lined storage box. It has a little bow on top and it reminds me of an engagement ring box. Imagine the reaction you'd get presenting these to your girlfriend! She'll either be really pissed that there wasn't a ring or she'll rush out of the room to put the balls in.

It's highly unlikely that I'll use these again. Like my title says, they're pretty but pointless.

    Really? Too small? The smaller they are the harder they are to keep in, and the harder you have to work. Were they THAT small? I'm surprised! Good review.

    Great review. I only have one question (and maybe I missed it) but how are they attached to each other? The pictures make it look like they're separate from each other. They are very pretty though.

    Lauren: I had no problem keeping them in. But they didn't exercise my muscles. They just stayed where they were. Perhaps I'm already so toned they couldn't work for me. *shrugs*

    Mistress Kay: The balls are not attached to each other. I just looked over my review and I guess I could've given the impression they are. But they definitely are not.

    Thank you for the review. I too am in the market for good ben wa or similar exercise toys. As much as I love glass, I'll probably pass on these.

    I totally agree with Kristi, they are too small and light to be challenging. They stick to the walls of the vagina till you fish them out. You good put a few more in and feel like a gumball machine. They are pretty though. Great, informative review.

    I have some of my own and was looking into getting a new pair, so I'm glad to know to cross these off of my list.

    Too bad you did not like yours, I really do like mines. And yes, you really have to be extra careful when washing them over the sink.

    I wonder if they have to be that combination of small and heavy in order to offer a good workout.

    Nice review! About your comment at the end, wouldn't it be more fun if your girlfriend stayed in the same room while she put them in, or got you to help?
