Use

Fetish Fantasy Ben Wa Balls can be used a few ways. First, they can be used as a Kegel toy for vaginal exercise. To use, you simply insert the balls until they are seated in a comfortable place; you can use one ball or both. Once they are inserted, you squeeze and hold your Kegel muscles around the balls. You can repeat this as much as you'd like, increasing duration and number of repetitions over time, and bear down to expel them when you are done. If you like, you could use a bit of lube when you insert them. I didn't find that necessary, because the glass is so slick and forgiving; they are quite easy to insert. With regular use, a Kegel exercise toy can provide improved muscle control and tone, stronger and more frequent orgasms, and help with any issues of incontinence you may have. As the balls are relatively small and light, I'd say they are well suited for anyone interested in trying them. They make no noise while you're using them, so you can feel free to wear them around the house or out of the house. No one will know you're doing your Kegel exercises while you grocery shop; it'll be your little secret.

The Ben Wa balls can also be used to stimulate you vaginally, while you stimulate yourself externally. When paired with an external vibrator or the use of your hand for clitoral stimulation, they provide a mild internal stimulation. Some may find that by clenching and releasing their Kegel muscles during clitoral stimulation, the balls massage their G-spot.

Another use for these Ben Wa balls is to insert them and have a bit of fun with a partner. When you have oral sex while these balls occupy your vagina, you get an increased sensation of fullness that you both may enjoy.

They are not designed to be inserted anally, as they have no retrieval string or flared base. You will not be able to remove them, and it will result in an embarrassing trip to the ER.

If you enjoy temperature play, these little guys would be great for that. You can place them in a bowl of warm or cold water, and then use them as you normally would. Because they are fairly small, they do warm up very quickly when inserted, but they still provide the desired effect. They could also be used for body massage. Using a flat hand, simply roll one of the balls where you're massaging, applying as much pressure as the receiver enjoys.

Material / Texture

The Fetish Fantasy Ben Wa balls are made of borosilicate glass, which is popularly known as Pyrex glass. It is the same type of glass used in the making of Pyrex mixing bowls and dishes. Borosilicate glass is designed to break into large chunks instead of tiny splinters if it would happen to shatter. The surface of the balls is smooth and even, with no seams or imperfections. They are hypo-allergenic, latex free, nonporous, and phthalates free.

The glass itself is black, and even when held up to a lamp no light shines through. Obviously glass is a very firm material, so there is no squish or give to the balls. It's a nice change from the normal clear glass items and gives it a sexy, dark feel.

As opposed to other vaginal exercisers made of silicone or plastic, glass Kegel toys are very easy to insert with little to no lube. These balls have no drag and a very smooth, shiny finish. They could easily be used by someone new to insertable Kegel toys, but even the advanced vaginal exerciser will enjoy adding them to their collection.

True to the nature of glass, these Ben Wa balls have no smell or taste. As glass is nonporous, these are safe to share after cleaning.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

With no seams and no imperfections, the design of the Fetish Fantasy Ben Wa balls is beyond reproach. They are perfectly round and identical to each other in size and shape.

The size is large enough to ensure they are felt in use and remind you to do your exercises, but small enough to provide a challenge. I was sent the medium size, and each ball measures 1 1/4" in diameter. These balls are also available in a smaller size, with a diameter of 1".

A photo for size comparison:

If you would leave these sitting out on a desk or dresser, anyone not familiar with Ben Wa balls might just assume they are decorative. They are small and discreet, and would be ideal for throwing in a suitcase for travel.

Performance

When inserted, these balls were comfortable and effective. They reminded me to exercise, but did not pinch or annoy. When you clench down on them, you do occasionally feel them contact each other, but the feeling isn't bothersome. I never felt as though they were difficult to keep in, so I was confident in wearing them out of the house.

I found that inserting them and expelling them was comfortable and hassle free. I generally insert vaginal exercisers while reclining on my bed. When I sit up, I move around a bit to ensure they are positioned in a way that is comfortable. When I'm ready to remove them, I squat a bit and gently push outward to force them out. Even though these have no string or retrieval cord, I had no issues getting them to come out when I wanted them to.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Caring for these Ben Wa balls is simple. Between uses, they can be washed with soap and water or your favorite toy cleaner. If you wish to sterilize them, you could boil them or place them in the dishwasher. If you choose to sterilize them in the dishwasher, you should put them in a dishwasher basket designed to contain small items, to avoid damage to the balls or your dishwasher.

Glass toys work with any lube. Feel free to use your favorite lube if you need it, although in most cases these can be used without any lube at all.

They do come with a storage pouch, which is made of polyester. It is well designed and takes up minimal space. Unlike other glass exercise pairs I own, the provided pouch has a separate compartment for each ball. In other reviews, I have expressed concern for glass exercise sets rubbing against each other and perhaps causing dulling of the surface or scratching while they are in storage pouches. With this set, they have designed the pouch to prevent that.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging for this item is well thought out and practical, but also pretty. Inside of a cardboard outer box is an inner plastic tray with three indents. The balls rest in two of them, and the pouch rests in the third. There is a plastic lid covering the plastic tray to ensure that the items stay where they should. The outside of the box has the product name and a black and white image of the balls resting in a person's hand.

The back of the package gives some basic usage and care instructions, as well as a photo of the balls themselves. It details their measurements and notes that they come with a storage pouch. The only directions it provides are to mention that they are perfect for vaginal stimulation and exercise, so beginners may need to look elsewhere for some basic instruction on using Kegel toys.

I would say the package is suitable for gifting, if you have the sort of relationship with someone where you would give them vaginal exercise balls.

Experience

I have a drawer full of vaginal exercise toys, and I can still see the merits of adding these beauties to my collection. I tried these a few ways.

I put these in and went about my day, running errands and cleaning the house a bit. As they are solid with no internal ball rolling around, they don't provide any type of rumble. This is fine with me, as I don't tend to think the rumble from Kegel toys is enough to get my motor running. What they did do is just what they are supposed to do. They reminded me to do my Kegel exercises. They provided a bit of resistance when I did those exercises, and gave me something to clench down on. I had no issues with them feeling like they were going to fall out, and they were very comfortable.

I also tried inserting these balls during some solo play and during oral sex with a partner. I enjoyed the feeling of fullness they provided. I prefer being able to orgasm around something, and I was pleasantly surprised that these Ben Wa balls worked well for that. My partner enjoyed inserting them as well.

I had some minor issues with egg-shaped glass Kegel toys in the past, and the fact that they tended to pinch a bit or grind against each other in use. I had none of those issues with these round glass balls.
