Vaginal exerciser by

They are barbells for your snatch you know...

These are larger than in my opinion than they should be, that being said, when you wear them, you do remember to work your kegels and that is a good thing!!!

extremely useful review

Use

Are you like me? You want to exercise your kegels muscles but you usually forget as something else takes your mind off of them??? Well, that is why there are these vaginal exercising balls on the market.

They are meant to be worn under clothing and worn out in public, around the house. So slip them in and wear them driving, walking the stairs, doing yoga, at work, gardening... whatever situation you can think of, you can wear them. I wear mine swimming. But don't tell the life guard I am doing more than swimming!!! But they can be your little secret!!! And since there is something inside you while say in a meeting, that is quite arousing!

These things are best suited for any and every woman who enjoys strong orgasms, a woman who doesn't like the thought of peeing just a little when laughing or sneezing or coughing when she is older. These are designed to work your pelvic floor muscles to give you better control over your muscles. Don't let your age fool you, just because you are twenty, or like me thirty-one, doesn't mean you don't need to start working your muscles for stronger control.

I would never suggest inserting these into your tush.

Yes, these are meant to be worn for a prolong period of time inside your vagina, but I wouldn't suggest leaving them in for more than four hours without removing them, washing them, then re-inserting them. I am pretty anal about the health of my vagina (that sounds like a bad pun doesn't it?) and I don't even like wearing a tampon for more than four hours. A good rule of thumb is, when you go to the bathroom, remove them, wash, reinsert.

Material / Texture

I do have to say that out of all my silicone toys I own, these ones feel the nicest. Personally, since I have access to many kinds of silk, I would say that this silicone feels like "butter silk", VERY luxurious to the touch with very little drag.

When I first opened the box, after my initial reaction of "holy smokes THEY'RE HUGE!!!", my fingers lovingly brushed over the balls and I just love the way they feel. They have no scent, they are tasteless, and everything but the retrieval cord is made from silicone. The retrieval cord might be made of out of plastic (many reviewers of the Ami have said plastic), but it doesn't quite feel plasticy. The base of each of the three balls, have a plastic "cap" attaching the retrieval cord to the silicone ball.

Ami I, Ami 2 and Ami 3, all have the plum-purple coloured silicone coating a hard ball on it's interior. The inner balls are of different weight. Ami 2 and 3, are the "barbell" shape, and you can twist the balls the silicone does have some give.

Just like in exercising, one must first start with light weights and gradually work up to something heavier. Je Joue has created just that with the Ami. The Ami 1 is somewhat larger to have your body get used wearing prolong wear items. The Ami 2 is a little heavier, thinner, and longer. This one is meant for more intermediate level of exercise. And that leaves Ami 3. Shorter, thinner and heavier. This one is for the most advanced user, and really can give your vaginal canal a decent work out.

Design / Shape / Size

Let me just say, I am trying to be unbiased writing this review. I am not a fan of the Ami. I find them HUGE. I would love to find a kegel exerciser that is the same weight as Ami 3, but the size of a tampon. I find that with the Ami 3, even though it is the smallest of the three, that I don't do any work it stays in on it's own without any effort from me. So my beautiful box of vaginal exercisers sit in a box on my shelf collecting dust because they are just... too big.

Now that I have that off my chest let's go through the design of each of the Ami and here is a size chart I stole from the Je Joue website:
Je Joue Ami comparison chart

I'v read quite a few reviews where women have said that their kegel exercise balls are just too big and they'd prefer them to be smaller. So I feel comfortable saying, that these are on the large size for almost all women.

Ami 1: single golf ball shape, light weight, very little effort needed to keep this within you. Lots of rumbles from the inner ball, and it is possible for it to be heard, but only if someone is close.
Ami 2: traditional barbell design, with two inner balls. These balls rumble only a little, and cannot be heard no matter how much jumping you do. I still do not feel any different using the Ami 2 because as I said, little to no effort to keep this within me.
Ami 3: traditional barbell design, again, two inner balls, but they hardly move. The shape is smaller than the other three and much heavier. This one takes a little effort to keep it within me.

I do wish it were possible to buy the Ami individually rather than in a group of three. I would have just bought the Ami 3.

Performance

For me, personally, I do not find my kegels stronger from using the Je Joue Ami 3 even after wearing them for three to six hours a day for two weeks. I didn't notice any improvements in my orgasm, nor in my muscle tightness. The man I was with while doing this experiment didn't notice a difference either.

What I did notice was that when my period came that month, that I seemed to have less cramping, and rather than having my period for six days, it lasted for four. Which was really quite nice. It has been said that using vaginal exercisers increase blood circulation to your vagina, so this could be a reason why my period lasted for a shorter period of time than usual.

As I have mentioned, I would love to see a vaginal exerciser that is small, thin, and quite weighty for those of us who enjoy wearing them out in public and really want to work out muscles. But these just didn't cut it for me. They were too large and cumbersome.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Because the balls are made from silicone, their care is actually pretty easy. I would strongly suggest washing them before insertion and patting them dry before using them. I mean after all, they are going to be in your for quite a while, so make sure they are clean to begin with.

Once you remove them, toss them in the sink with warm water, add some anti-bacterial soap and hand wash clean. Then get out your toy brush (I use a soft bristled toothbrush) and make sure you get around the base. And then wash off the retrieval cord. I let my balls hang up in the bathroom to air dry before putting them into their lovely storage case. I'll put this in bold lettering, and if this is the only part you read, that's good. BE SURE TO CLEAN VERY CAREFULLY AROUND THE BASE.

Because these balls only live in three places; in me, hanging in the bathroom and in their storage case, I've never had an issue with the silicone attracting lint or hair or dust.

When I insert them, I do not require lube while using them. But, again, as I said that these will live in you for sometime, you might want to be aware of what kind of lube you plan to use. I would suggest a more natural, water based lube that is unscented.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The packaging is really quite elegant. The box arrives in a cellophane sealed plastic. So you know when you get it if someone has been snooping or not. Then once you take that off, you have a pretty dark brownish coloured flimsy cardboard box that has the product name on it. Once you remove that box, you are left with the Ami itself. A hard black cardboard box that fastens with a black satin ribbon. Once open, you can see your vaginal exercisers laid nicely in a row on a black plastic liner.

Beneath this plastic holder of the Ami, you have the instruction and care booklet.

Personal comments

Now, because I find these on the large size, it doesn't mean that these will not work for you.

However; if you are like me, and prefer something that requires a little more oomph and work, I would suggest trying out the traditional Ben Wa balls. The only problem using Ben Wa balls, is that they can actually slip out of you while you are walking or doing every day things. You would need to wear them home and couldn't wear them in public. And to top it all off, wearing Ben Wa balls during penetrative sex is just... out of this world for me and for him!!!

Experience

I have decided to give these balls a two out of five rating. From the reviews I have read, like me, a few have said that they are too big and would prefer something smaller. The second reason I am knocking off a point is I don't like the fact that they are sitting on my shelf. If I feel like using the Ami, I reach for the third one. I don't see the point in selling these as a set. I would have liked to see Je Joue offer them as a set and each step on their own. The third star is lost because of the plastic base and how difficult it is to clean there. Even with using a brush, and being very careful, I still sometimes see the dried flakey parts of me there. EVEN after careful cleaning with a brush.

If you are thinking of using the Ami during sex, I'd not suggest it. He claimed that it just felt uncomfortable, and I wasn't all that impressed of the feeling of the single or the dual balls pressing against my innards. I much prefer using the Sapphire Falls as then while he takes my behind, I can still thrust the length of the glass toy. When we used the Sapphire Falls after using the Ami, I was thrilled, and he said he preferred the longer glass over the smaller balls.
Follow-up commentary
These balls have found their way to the bottom of my hardly ever used toy-box. I do not like the plastic pull-cord it does quite hurt my labia when I wear any kind of tight clothing.

I really wish I could find a pelvic floor muscle exerciser that is small and weighty. The Ami is very large and klunky, and if you are a frequent kegel exerciser, you just mind finds these too big.

I know I have.

    Thanks for the review! And wow.. the title is brilliant; I will never be able to use any kegel exercise device without the phrase 'barbells for your snatch' coming into my mind.
