Glass ben wa balls - exerciser for vaginal muscles by Topco Sales - review by Emma (Girl With Fire)

The prettiest marbles you will ever stick up your cooch.

If you love pretty things and strong pc muscles then these are for you! They are well crafted, beautifully designed with an attractive and discreet box for storage. However if you are terrified of forever losing a ben wa ball "up there", you may want to look into an alternative with a retrieval cord such as the Smartballs or the Ami set.

extremely useful review
The Glass Ben Wa Balls are some of the prettiest I have ever come across. They are smooth clear spheres of glass with yellow and green flowers at the center. They measure 1" across and look startlingly similar to a large marble. They come with a small jewelry style storage box which is great for those worried about discretion or travel. They are very comfortable to insert with just a little lube of your choice. Any lube is suitable given that these are glass, however if you are going to be playing with toys as well you will need to take their chemical sensitivity into consideration. The glass is Food grade, and free of all the harmful/irritating chemicals that come with some toys such as latex, and Pthalates. Glass is also non-porous.

For those new to kegel exercise I would recommend something slightly larger with a retrieval cord attached. Ben wa balls will NOT get lost forever in your vagina. There is simply no place for them to go but out. However some people may have difficulty extracting these small glass balls without some practice. They also can barely be felt and tend to travel upwards so unless you are adept at controlling your kegel functions you may have difficulty using them to their full potential. THESE ARE NOT SAFE FOR ANAL USE. They CAN get lost in your bum and could easily result in a trip to the hospital in order to extract them.

(NOTE: For those concerned about retrieval it may help to put the balls into a condom before insertion. This way when you put them in you have the option of tying the end, or leaving the curled end of the condom outside of your vagina making it easy to pull the balls back out. The latter may also help by making it slightly more difficult to keep the balls inserted which would lead to a more effective workout)

The Glass Ben Wa Balls are a beautiful and well crafted tool for exercising the Pelvic Floor or PC muscles. This is beneficial in many ways, it can help women who have lost tightness and muscle strength due to a vaginal delivery, can help women who have difficulty achieving orgasm, and can prevent or help with issues of incontinence. It is also beneficial in that it can prevent or postpone pelvic organ prolapse. Some women also use ben wa balls for sexual pleasure, they find that the feeling of the friction created by the balls is enough to arouse them. They can also be used in conjunction with sex toys during masturbation, or even left in during intercourse.

Cleaning the Glass Ben Wa Balls is as easy as soap and water. You could use toy cleaner but considering that they can be boiled to sterilize, it is not necessary.

To use ben wa balls you simply insert them 1 to 2 inches into your vaginal canal, make sure they are comfortable and squeeze your pelvic muscles in ten second bursts. If you cannot maintain muscle pressure for the full 10 seconds begin with shorter amounts of time always making sure that the the time you are flexing and relaxing for are the same length(ex:flex 3 seconds, relax 3 seconds, rpt). Some people enjoy wearing ben wa balls for long periods, for instance while doing housework, at the office or even in the gym! You should continue to use them until you can keep them in place while running up and down a flight of stairs a couple of times. Even after that it helps to use them once in a while to maintain muscle tone.

To extract the ben wa balls just bear down with your muscles to push them out. It may help to use a finger or two to apply pressure to the tissue on the anterior(front/top) of the vaginal canal while you push. Applying pressure with short breaks in between as you push and pause will quicken the process. You can also cough which should get them moving in the right direction.
Experience
I don't know quite what to make of my experience with these. I had no problem keeping them in and had to actually run laps and jump around my kitchen to have one fall out. I'm not sure whether this means that I have strong pelvic muscles or that they were poorly designed. Unfortunately because I have had no prior experience with Ben Wa/Exercise balls I have nothing to compare them too. My concern is that they are small enough and light enough to move up on their own, instead of weighing down and forcing you to use your muscles. They were very comfortable but did nothing for me sexually, I had them in for up to 3 hours at a time and most of that time I forgot about them completely. I even peeing without losing one in the toilet, which I was terrified to try but managed to work up the courage to go for.
Follow-up commentary
As pretty as these little balls are, I really don't find them to be all that effective. The fact that they travel upwards instead of down negating the need to use your muscles to hold them in, kind of ruins them for me. If leaving them in for any substantial period of time (longer than 30 mins), I find that I can easily forget that they are inserted. I now have the Je Joue Ami set and find that having the small movement in the balls, and the little handle to tug on, makes both remembering to use my muscles, and removal much much easier. I would say that these make better marbles than ben wa balls.

    I agree with buzzvibe on the condom thing, I never thought of that! I'm curious to try these, but I like the leopard duotone balls I recently received. Theyh are heavier, too bad they broke on the first use -_-

    Thats terrible Cherry. I looked at those but I am very reluctant to purchase any balls with a retrieval cord which is not coated in silicone or some such thing. I have enough trouble with my vagina without having to worry that the string on my balls may not be clean enough.
    Thanks for the feedback guys, you are awesome!

    Interesting, I was interested in these and other kinds but not really for the exercise... I just wanted a couple of BIG balls inside my vagina so that I could experience moving sensations inside of me while I go about my everyday tasks. Maybe feeling them roll up and down, but it seems as though these aren't for me, since I was wanting something else and something bigger... gold ball size maybe. Good review though and very informative.
