Little weighted balls rattling against your vagina— How did your morning go? Make your own story by checking out our products below!
How to grab your sex life by the Kegel balls
You may not realize it yet, but these sex toys are worth the weight.
Whoever said women don’t have the balls probably didn’t know these sex toys existed.
They go by many other names: Ben Wa balls, rin-no-tama, Venus balls, even Geisha balls. Still, these terms might only have confused you more as to what they actually are.
So what are Kegel balls anyway?
Kegel balls are small, marble-sized objects, usually hollow but weighted, that roll around and are used for sexual stimulation and/or pelvic floor strengthening by insertion into the vagina.
They’re tiny, circular weights that either come in ones or twos to make your muscles down there contract and relax. In short, using at least one of these makes you the personal trainer of a naughty client.
Kidding aside, Kegel balls are best known for making your pelvic-floor muscles stronger, which is not very different from why you do exercises at the gym. What’s the big deal? As it turns out, strong pelvic-floor muscles result in more intense sexual activity. That’s because parts of it called the pubococcygeus (PC) muscles are heavily involved in your orgasm.
How do you know which pair of balls would suit you best? No need to sweat it. NOTI is here to help you make the best choice for your sexual health and well-being.
The material world of Kegel balls
There are a lot of kinds of Kegel balls to choose from, but in choosing the right material, you only have to remember two things.
First, make sure that the stuff is non-porous. Steer clear of rubber and jelly, because these will accumulate bacteria more quickly. Choose among silicone, glass, or metal instead.
And second, not all Kegel balls come with a string, but when they do, ensure that it’s not made out of braided cloth. Fabric breeds unwanted microflora just like rubber and jelly. Similarly, consider a silicone-coated string as a better alternative.
Try these on for size
When it comes to Kegel balls, size matters a lot. That’s why they come in various sizes to accommodate the needs of different women. The best way to determine yours is to measure your vaginal diameter using your fingers.
Try inserting your pointer finger into your vagina first. If it already feels full, then small Kegel balls would already do the trick. How about two fingers snugly together? That’s a medium internal size. Anything beyond that means your best bet is a large size.
Medium and large Kegel balls are also recommended for women who have had vaginal deliveries in the past.
Overall, it’s important to ensure that the Kegel balls stay in place when you stand up.
How to use it
We’ve already established how the pelvic floor, which houses women’s sex organs, could be strengthened through Kegel exercises that contract and relax the muscles.
But the best part about Kegel balls is how they make the process much easier. No need to count reps or break out into a cold sweat, so long as you insert the sex toy inside your vagina and let your muscles carry the weight.
It could be tempting to take the heavier weighted Kegel balls and ramp up the difficulty right away, but it’s always wiser to go easy on yourself, especially in the beginning.
For starters, find a single Kegel ball for your training, particularly one that’s easy to remove. Use it for a few minutes daily, gradually increasing the length of the interval as you go. Only move on to a double when you’ve already established its use as routine.
The vagina may be self-lubricating, but it’s still advisable to apply lubricant to your Kegel balls before insertion. Use water-based lubricant if you could, especially if your sex toys are made of silicone. Slide in each ball carefully at a pace that’s most comfortable for you.
Masturbating a little can also help with easing any pain during insertion. Do whatever makes you feel good!
Think you need to keep still while the Kegel balls are inside your vagina? Wrong!
There are always opportunities to experiment and have fun while your naughty bits are juggling your Kegel balls. What if you keep them in as you masturbate until you achieve orgasm? How about using them while you’re having sexy time with your partner?
The possibilities are endless. You know what they say about life: Gotta grab it by the Kegel balls. So if you find yourself wanting to buy a pair of these, why not? We’re here to empower you as you indulge in your deepest desires.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Are Kegel balls recommended for all women?
Women of all ages could benefit from the improved sexual health that Kegel balls offer, and it’s even advisable to start as young as your twenties. However, some medical conditions might hinder women from fully enjoying these products. These could include pregnancy complications, chronic pelvic pain, and pelvic surgery in the last three months.
What are the benefits of using Kegel balls?
It all boils down to three major advantages. First, this leads to an improved sexual experience, since these muscles are heavily involved in your orgasm. Second, it’s helpful in recovery from pregnancy, when you need to engage your pelvic floor postpartum. Lastly, it’s a tremendous relief for women suffering from urinary incontinence.
Do I need to do Kegel exercises while using my Kegel balls?
Do you need them for better sex, pregnancy recovery, or urinary incontinence? If you’re using Kegel balls primarily for sexual pleasure, then Kegel exercises might not be necessary. But if you want to be committed to a more intentional routine for health purposes, these exercises could be essential to your recovery.
Why would I need Kegel balls when I could just do Kegel exercises?
Kegel exercises are great and all, but studies show that 3 in 4 women who attempt them do so incorrectly because they end up exhausting their abdomen, buttock, or leg muscles. Consider incorporating your new sex toys into your exercises to correct this tendency.
Do I need lubricant for my Kegel balls?
Lubricants are optional for vaginal stimulation, but it won’t hurt to have some around for when you need a little help. Using it would definitely reduce friction and make for a smoother, more sensual experience overall. But be careful not to use silicone-based lubricants with silicone Kegel balls so you don’t destroy them.
When should I start expecting results from Kegel balls?
Not all women are the same, so it might take as little as a few weeks to as long as a few months. But keep going at it, and you’ll definitely reap the benefits of committing to your Kegel balls!
Frequently Asked Questions
Women can rely on a wide selection of vibrators for internal or external stimulation. Still, it’s worth noting that 7 out of 10 women need clitoral stimulation for orgasm. That means for these people, it could be worth investing in compact (e.g. bullet, egg) or powerful (e.g. wand) options.
People suspect that vibrators could decrease the sensitivity of your clitoris after frequent use. But they’ve never been proven to produce long-term side effects. Our body could just be tired from prolonged contact. If this occurs, give it a rest for a few days, and you’ll eventually find your sexual appetite returning.
Lubricants are optional for vaginal stimulation, but using it would definitely reduce friction and make for a smoother, more sensual experience overall. However, it’s a must for anal stimulation, since the anus doesn’t naturally provide its own lubrication. Be careful not to use silicone-based lubricants with silicone vibrators.
Condoms can extend the lifespan of your sex toy and make cleanup easier. So if the size and shape allow it, they’re never a bad idea. Change the condom before it comes into contact with another part of your body. Also, never use condoms coated with silicone-based lubricants for silicone vibrators.
Sex toy cleaners, which are specially formulated for vibrators like yours, would be your best bet for cleaning and maintenance. Read the manual for more details. Also take the time to inspect it for any sign of damage—if you spot cracks, stop using the device immediately.
Not all vibrators are safe for anal penetration. Check if yours has a flare or handle at the other end before going through the backdoor. You wouldn’t want, say, your egg vibrator stuck inside your anus, because that would mean an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.
Troubleshooting can be relatively easy for vibrators. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are the batteries or cord in working order?
- Are all components properly secured?
- Is there any foreign object jamming the switch?
On the rare occasion that the device heats up or malfunctions, stop using the device and have it checked.
Communication is extremely essential in this case. Be honest about how and where you want to please yourself with your sex toy. But more importantly, remind him that these mechanical sensations would never replace the physical and emotional pleasure you get from him alone.
