Ive done kegels for years, but recently got balls. After my children I was very self conscious and kegels helped me feel better about myself.

I sporadically do kegels and have been looking at toys to help me do them.

Kegal exercises can also help to prevent prolapse of organs supported by the pelvic floor.

I started doing kegels because my pelvic prolapse was getting worse. I initially tried doing them with Fun Factory Smartballs and they didn't really fit. The discomfort/pain kept me from using them and doing the exercises. I later found out that the manufacturer recommends the Teno Uno for people with prolapse.
For a time I got reminders on Twitter to do them and that really helped. Now I need to get into a routine of doing them.
I haven't noticed any sort of sexual benefit from doing them. However, my pelvic floor seems stable and that's good enough for me.

I don't do kegels but after hearing about all the awesome benefits I want to start.

I do them on occasion. My wife used the smart balls a few times, but found them uncomfortable. I don't think she has tried exercising them since them. It was funny though, a few weeks ago her mom recommended her do kegel exercises.

I do them off and on. I go through spurts where I do them a lot with or without my emigi and other times I can't be bothered. Because of my inconsistency I haven't really noticed too much difference. Gonna have to work a lil harder on doing them regularly.

I havent noticed a change. Altho, I do need to do them MUCH more often lol

I've never tried Kegel exercises, but I have thought about it.

I have the first generation Smartballs, the Teneo Uno, and the Emigi. The Smartballs and Emigi just don't fit my anatomy and keeps sliding out. I have no problem using the Teneo Uno but since it doesn't provide any stimulation, I don't bother with it anymore. The only Kegel exercise I'm doing right now is simple, it's just doing squatting 50 times a day. I know it is working because every time when I squeeze while having sex, my hubby can feel it.

I read recently that kegels don't actually do anything for incontinence and can cause PFD.

--After a quick google search there is apparently a hell of a lot of debate back and forth on their uses.

Seems like a hot topic.

Pretty interesting, though.

I've always done kegels but placed an order for my first exerciser today - hopefully it will be something really nice.

I do them when I'm having sex and it makes my orgasms more intense. However, insertion becomes painful after I orgasm from vaginal contractions and how much I tighten up. Sometimes it's unbearably painful and I have to tell my partner to stop. This might just be the reason why I have an aversion to big toys and big dicks.

I do them sporadically, and have noticed some minor improvement in my orgasm intensity and ejaculation strength. Nothing life changing, but still something.

I don't do it consistently. I really want to make it a habit. I only do them when they cross my mind. I'm going to order the Energie real soon so I can have a serious kegel workout.

Which vaginal exercise toys do people really like? I have smart balls but never really use them. Does anyone have luck using the njoy pure wand as a vaginal barbell?
Contributor: sarki sarki
Yes I do them

I've got Mae B. Love Balls but I only insert them once a couple of months. They don't feel spectacular and I simply don't bother. I do some Kegels but it's irregular and more for fun than for any change.

I did a May Masturbation Challenge (masturbated at least once a day) and by the end of it the orgasms were really intense. Now I let myself go and they are much weaker. It doesn't pay to be lazy.

Kegels are awesome!

I used to do male kegels years ago, and believe it or not it did help. I stopped after I started having sex but I may begin doing it again.

To be honest I thought that kegels were something that only women that had given birth did to get things back to where they were. I can remember my Mom's old FIRM videos talking about "tightening internally". Now I am kinda curious......

I have done Kegels for many years, I just recently received a ball for review and have done the kegels with them as well as on their own. The strength of orgasms I have had started after I was doing the kegels for about a month or so, I have never 'leaked' even when pregnant. Oh, I can also grip so hard, my husband can't move, kind of a funny joke to play on him sometimes.

I don't have an actual like workout routine or anything, lol. Mainly if I'm sitting here on EF and see something about kegels I start flexing haha. But I have noticed that I can NOT orgasm if I'm not tensing those muscles.
