At least they are not blue balls!

These are great. They take some getting used to, as they do not come with a retrieval string. My wife has not noticed any difference in her kegal's, but I do not put the blame on these balls. She just does not use them often enough. These should last you a life time with very little care.
nice packaging, nice weight, stainless steel.
small size, takes some getting used to, no retrieval string.

How to Use Ben-Wa Balls

1. Use the restroom before placing the balls in the vagina.
2. Insert one ball at a time. Putting lubrication on the balls will help them glide in. Women have said that inserting the balls is similar to inserting a tampon. If you’re not used to inserting tampons or if you’re having trouble, you should lift one leg up. If that doesn’t work, try inserting them while lying down.
3. Squeeze your leg muscles together and then your PC muscles together to hold the balls in. The balls should push down a little bit inside your vagina, and they will make your vagina feel “full”. Much like tampons, you should eventually get used to the feeling.
4. Hold the balls inside for at least 15 minutes a day to strengthen your PC muscles. You can hold them in for hours for a better workout.
5. If any balls slip out, wash them well with soap and water and slip them back in.
6. There are several ways to remove the balls including: jump up and down, sneeze, cough, sit and bear down as if you’re having a bowel movement, insert lubricant to help them slide out, etc. If you think you might have a hard time removing the balls, then you may want to purchase balls that are strung onto a retrieval cord. In any case, it is not possible for the balls to disappear inside the body from the vagina.

Material / Texture

These are made from 100% stainless steel. They have no scent or taste. And because of the material they are made from, they will never pick up any unwanted flavor or scent. The ben-wa balls are completely smooth. They are also pretty heavy and cold. Stainless steel will hold temperature well. I would suggest that you run these under some warm water before use. Taking them right out of their package and using them will put your pussy into shock from the coldness.

Stainless steel can be used with any type of lube you like. We use waterbased lube for pretty much everything. But if you are one who uses silicone based or oil based, have no fears. Your chose in lube will not damage the material.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

These have a simple design to them. A .75 inch diameter ball. Thats it. They are simple and easy to use.

I am torn between whether this is for beginners or the more advanced, because of their size. They are pretty small. My wife has a hard time keeping these from falling out, yet they are not hard to hold onto. It is a strange mix. They like to fall out when ever she picks up something or bends over, unlike when she uses her ami set. But at the same time, she says she cant feel her muscles contracting when she moves around. It is hard to explain. I just think she is not used to something this small.

Each ball weighs 0.7 ounces. They are small and heavy.

I feel these work great, my wife does not. She has a hard time with retrieving them, as they do not have a attached retrieval string like other ben wa balls. She likes to freak out when they don't come right out, instead of relaxing and pushing them out with her kegal muscles. She forgets that they cant go anywhere but out. She also does not use them enough, and this has caused her to believe that they do not work; because she does not feel any difference in her kegals. I know this comes from lack of usage time. If she would put in more time, she would feel a difference.

My wife felt that these were comfortable during use. She told me that she could not really feel them inside of her. But she said that if she where doing any heavy lifting or stretching, they would start to fall out. I think that would be from her using her kegal muscles without thinking about it, and pushing them out on accident.

I think that these would work for you. If you are scared of the lack of a retrieval cord, then don't get these. As that fear would only take away from your success with these.

Care and Maintenance

Stainless steel is super easy to take care of and store. To clean these ben-wa balls, you can wash them with soap and water, you can use toy cleaner, you could use a bleach solution, or you can boil them in water for a few minutes. We wash ours in warm water and some soap. Then pat them dry with a soft towel, and you are done with the cleaning. We always store ours in the small box they came in. Like I said, super easy.

What ever storage method you choose to use, just make sure to protect the material. Try to keep your ben-wa balls away from anything that could damage the surface. Also try to keep them from rolling around and having a chance to drop from a height of more then a foot or so. They are heavy, and could cause some damage to your flooring and anything else then drop onto.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


These get shipped in a nice container. Th container looks like it could be made from aluminum and plastic. But I cant find any information on this. The box has a latch lid to keep it closed. Inside you find a Styrofoam tray with two cut outs that the ben-wa balls sit in. With the lid latched, the balls stay in place and do not roll around.

The outside of the box has little information about the ben-wa balls. The top of the lid has the label for pipedream. It has a picture of the ben-wa balls and the size of them listed. The bottom has the size and weight listed, the material they are made from, and where they are made.

The packaging is basic, yet not very discreet. It works for storage, and might even work as a gift package. I love this package. It is small and sturdy enough to protect the ben-wa balls no matter where I store them. I think that it is a nice extra. Most products in this price range, and even 2 or 3 times this price range include a super cheap package that is good for nothing more then shipping.
    • Good for storage

Personal comments

Some Methods to Try for Arousal

• Rocking: With the balls inside the vagina, get into a sitting position. Rock back and forth with your legs pressed together.
• Vaginal Penetration: During sex, leave one or both balls in the vagina. The penis will move the ball(s) around, so this technique will also stimulate his penis.
• Vibrator: Leave one or both of the balls in the vagina while inserting the vibrator or using it on the clitoris.
• Retrieval Cord Balls: Use the retrieval cord to pull the balls out. Push the balls back in. This will give your vagina a good workout.
Follow-up commentary
My wife has continued to use these off and on. They have held up well. No rust or other damage to the material. They still look brand new. She still prefers to use the Ami set, but these are a close second.
