Simple and Elegant

These glass balls are a great choice for strengthening pelvic floor muscles. The glass is smooth, the balls are easy to insert with or without lube, and they’re silent during use. They’re also easy to remove, even though they don’t have a retrieval cord. Plus, they’re quite pretty. What more could you ask for?

Use

These balls, like other Ben Wa balls, are used for strengthening and toning the pelvic floor muscles (which may have been weakened from pregnancy, childbirth, or weight) during kegel exercises. They can be a reminder to do the exercises, either consciously or unconsciously. Stronger pelvic floor muscles can result in better orgasms and can also help with urinary incontinence.

The Reflections balls can be used any time, anywhere, as they are silent in use, although you will want to remove them before using the bathroom. They are meant for vaginal insertion and should never be inserted anally. They can be warmed or cooled, if desired, before insertion.

Material / Texture

The Reflections balls are made of borosilicate glass, so they are odorless and also resistant to chipping, cracking, and breaking. They are also hypoallergenic, nonporous, and phthalates free. The balls are slick and smooth, with no visible seams, and they are easy to insert with just a little lubricant.

A lovely colored flower is inside each ball; these flowers appear to have been blown into the glass and are not real flowers, but rather colored wisps in the glass in a flower shape. They are delicate and off-center, and the base of each flower appears to touch the side inside the ball. One flower is red, and the other is blue with red accents.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

These balls are round and have a 1 1/4" diameter, so they aren’t too large or too small. They have a nice weight in the hand. The balls are separate (both weigh the same), and can be used either singly or together.

The Reflections balls are fairly discreet – you could leave these out on a shelf or other area where they won’t roll around or fall on the floor, and it’s doubtful anyone would know what they were; they’d probably assume they were glass baubles or large marbles. They can be taken in either checked or carry-on luggage, but care should be taken to wrap each ball individually so they don’t clank together during transport.
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

The balls are comfortable to wear and, since they are not connected, you have the option of using one or both together. They can be inserted by lightly lubing them and then gently inserting into the vagina. When both balls are inserted, they will gently rub together, and the sensation will remind you to clench your muscles together. Your muscles will also lightly tighten around the balls to keep them in.

Although the idea of not having a retrieval cord may be disconcerting, the balls cannot get lost in the vagina, and they are not hard to remove. The bottom ball (or only ball, if you’re using just one) can be removed by squatting or bending over and gently bearing down until the ball is in reach; you can hook it out with your finger or bear it out into your hand. The second ball will be in higher – if you stand up and move around a bit, the ball will drop, and then it can be removed the same way the first ball was.

Since bearing down will cause the balls to drop, it’s best not to remove them while sitting on the toilet; they should also be removed before using the toilet so they don’t fall out into the bowl. Squeezing the kegel muscles should also not be done frequently during urination.
    • Comfortable
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The Reflections balls are easy to clean. They can be washed before and after use with soap and water, then dried. They can also be boiled or run through the dishwasher on the top rack (without using any soap). Care should be taken when washing in the sink so they don’t drop into the basin.

Although borosilicate glass is fairly sturdy, the balls should always be checked before use for cracks or chips. The balls should be discarded if any flaws are found.

Any lubricant can be used with these balls.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Balls come in a pink and white plastic box, with each ball visible through a window in the front. Product information is on the sides and back of the box. Inside the box, the balls rest in a plastic tray; a small black storage bag with an elastic drawstring is also included. The box can be used for storage, or the balls can be stored in the provided bag. If you choose to use the bag and are concerned about the balls clanking together, each ball can be wrapped in tissue first.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Experience

I really like these balls. They’re pretty, the size is just right, as is the weight, and since they’re glass they’re very easy to insert. They’re much easier to insert than silicone balls, even without any lube. I used them both together, and they were completely silent – I could feel them, and they reminded me to squeeze my muscles, but I wasn’t worried that anyone knew I was wearing them.

Without a cord, I was a bit worried about how they’d come out, but it wasn’t any problem. The first ball was very easy; the second ball was much farther up, but I found by walking around a bit and squeezing my muscles, that it dropped down into position. From that point, a gentle bearing down removed the ball with ease.
