Flex Your Muscles! - A Discreet and Exciting Take on Ben Wa Balls

The Smart Balls are a decently priced set of Ben Wa balls that are easy to clean, fun to wear out and while masturbating and helps you to focus on and use your PC muscles. Also, as a beginner, I have found them to be easy to use. While a bit difficult to insert, I have enjoyed having them and would recommend them to anyone looking for a nice vaginal exerciser.

extremely useful review


I got the Smart Balls when I decided to look into strengthening my PC muscles. I don't have any problems at the moment, but the possibility of enjoying sex more or having more control there was intriguing. And, at the very least, I thought it might be exciting to have a toy that drew awareness to the area and I could wear it out and about.
I also enjoyed masturbating with it in. I feel that its presence is noticeable and having these inside of me during orgasm made it more enjoyable for me.

This is good for anyone looking for a toy to help them with their kegel exercises. I can't make any claim to its effectiveness, but it is, at the very least, fun and exciting to use while wandering around the house or to the gym or wherever you'd like to take it. Also, this may be something which would spice up masturbation; the shape and the movement going on inside of you during the process may be something you'd enjoy - I know I do!

Material / Texture

The Smart Balls are made of a non-porous material called elastomed. They had no offensive smell or feeling when I got them, that I can recall. Neither the small ridges nor the material itself really contribute to the sensations, that I notice, but it does make it very easy to clean. A mild soap and water is all I've ever used, and I've had no problems so far.

This material is firm, and the flexible connection in the middle helps with insertion. (You can do one at a time, without the concern that you are dealing with two separate spheres, as with traditional Ben Wa balls.) And, the elastomed string coming off of the end removes any concern about pulling them out again when you're done!

Design / Shape / Size

I really do like the design. The shape is visually and physically pleasing. I wore the Smart Balls to the gym and I did not find them to be noisy nor so distracting that I couldn't function. Rather, they created a sensation that drew my attention to my pelvic muscles and was, in that way, somewhat arousing. It has a handy cord for pulling them out, so no worries about anything getting stuck. And, none, so far, about anything falling out.

The only real downside I've found is the size. I'm not a big woman (less than 5 feet tall), so I don't know if that is a contributing factor. However, without being wet enough or without lube, these can be difficult to insert. It comes with a small sample of lube, which is nice. But, you may need to have your own for continued use.

Also, the Smart Balls are fairly small and easy to transport, so if you want to take them with you on your travels, that's easy enough.

For me, the best thing about the Smart Balls is the focus they bring to your pelvic muscles and the enjoyment to be had while masturbating or just having them in. I loved wearing these to the gym and wandering out and about. Whether they have or have not significantly strengthened my muscles (probably not too much, after such a short period of time), they have made me more aware of them and I've enjoyed clenching them while using the toy, while touching myself with the Smart Balls in, and during sex.

Again, while insertion can be difficult, particularly without lube or significant moisture present, I have enjoyed using them and have not regretted the purchase.

Care and Maintenance

The Smart Balls are very easy to take care of. As I've said, they're non-porous, so a good soap and warm water is all that's really necessary. Store them in a clean, dry place until you want to use them again. And, be sure to keep the lube nearby to assist with insertion.

I threw the package away, but, as I recall, it was actually a really adorable box. Much cuter than anything else I've ordered thus far. Inside the box was a free sample of lube to assist with the use of the Smart Balls and a small instructional booklet.

Personal comments

Overall, I'm glad I made this purchase. A good kegel exerciser at a decent price was something I had wanted to own for a while. I was interested in having something that I could wear for long periods of time, to bring awareness to myself sexually in a discreet way. The price was reasonable and, as I beginner, I have had no real trouble with them - they were not imposing in look or feel. They are a bit large, but that may even contribute to the enjoyment, once the issue of insertion is overcome.

For anyone looking for a pair of reasonably priced, low maintenance, beginner friendly Ben Wa balls, I'd say the Smart Balls are a good choice.

When I first got the Smart Balls, I thought back on what I had read about Ben Wa balls when deciding whether to buy them or not. I wanted to wear them out, but was a bit paranoid about whether they'd be heard. Of course, this was a silly concern. After some in home use, I finally got the courage to wear them to the gym, and no one was the wiser. And, I had a little bit more to enjoy while on the elliptical!

I've used them on and off since, while cleaning around the house or while touching myself. Overall, I think I've gotten my money's worth, and they're still going strong, ready for many more uses.

    Welcome to eden! Great first review.

    You mentioned that these are made from a non porous material, but didn't actually say what that material is. If you aren't sure, you could always look at the product page, but I would definitely add it to the review so people don't have to look at the product page. Also, and this is just a pet peeve of mine, you start a lot of sentences with And or But. Try instead to include that sentence with the previous sentence, or making it a sentence of its own with out the And/But. Just a suggestion!
    Great review!
  • Maiden
    Just noticed you did mention elastomed , but in reference to the string. Easy fix, just add "called elastomed" at the end of your first sentence under material!
  • AVDisco
    Oh! I can't believe I forgot to mention the material sooner.
    Thank you for catching that! I just added it above. Hopefully that helps anyone looking at my review.
  • Maiden
    I am sure it will, and good job on correcting it so quickly!

    I enjoy my Smart Balls and I agree that they can be a bit big for some.
