What are kegel balls?

Kegel balls are small, weighted balls inserted inside the vagina to enable you to exercise effectively during kegel exercises. These balls are also called orgasm balls, geisha balls, or pleasure balls.

In addition, they come with or without cords, have heavy weights, occur in larger sizes, and are enclosed in silicone or smooth materials. Some kegel balls also produce pulsating or vibrating feel when used.

Step-by-step guide to using Kegel balls

This guide covers everything from preparing your kegel balls to inserting them and using them for kegel exercises.

How to prepare your kegel balls

Before using your kegel balls, you need to ensure they're in tip-top shape. Follow the steps below to prepare kegel balls.

  • First, check that the balls aren't cracked or damaged.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and antibacterial soap.

  • Wash your kegel balls with warm soapy water and dry them with a clean towel.

  • Add a little lubricant to your kegel balls, preferably water-based lube. Water-based lube is easy to clean and won't leave any stain on your clothing. Furthermore, avoid rubbing too much so you can hold the balls in place.

How to correctly insert kegel balls

After lubricating your ball, the next thing to do is to insert them. You might find this scary if it's your first time inserting kegel balls in your vagina. No worries, you're in safe hands. Meanwhile, you should lubricate your vaginal opening, so the balls are well positioned. You'll need to place the kegel ball correctly for the best strengthening results. A study shows that women who use non-vibrating kegel balls report improved pelvic function. Typically, when you insert the ball correctly, you should place it above your pelvic floor muscles to facilitate easy lifting of the ball during kegel exercise. Here's how to insert kegel balls.

  • Lie comfortably on your back, relaxing your legs

  • Gently insert the first kegel ball into your vagina. If you are a beginner, it's best to use kegel balls connected through a string. Ensure the string is tucked inside as well.

  • Insert the second ball leaving the loop or string outside the vagina so you can easily pull it out.

  • Tighten your pelvic muscles to hold the balls firmly. Then, you can go about your daily activities. Note: The balls can stay put for 6 hours.

Using kegel balls for exercise and foreplay

Now that you've inserted the kegel balls, what do you hope to achieve with them? To strengthen your pelvic floor or increase sexual pleasure. If you're using kegel balls solely for your exercise routine, you'll need to add one or more balls into your vagina. Ideally, you're expected to be acquainted with kegel exercises before incorporating kegel balls into your exercise routine.

On the flip side, if you're looking to stimulate sexual arousal, you should insert the balls some hours before seeing your partner. This helps foreplay, preparing both partners for sex. For maximum sexual satisfaction, consider leaving the balls inside for some time before having sex.

How to exercise your pelvic floor using kegel balls

If you're conversant with exercises focused on the pelvic, you might want to add kegel balls to your exercise routine. Exercises aimed at the lower limbs, especially the pelvis, help relieve urinary continence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain. Let's walk you through the pelvic floor exercise.

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent. Ensure both vaginal canal and ball are lubricated.

  • While lying in that position, insert the lubricated ball into the vagina.

  • Tighten your pelvic floor muscles so you can feel the ball squeeze. This will help you know the muscles to focus on and strengthen them simultaneously.

  • Practice contracting and relaxing your pelvic floor muscles for 10 seconds, 5 seconds each.

  • Repeat the above step 5 times to complete a set. You can do at least 3 sets daily.

You'll need to be consistent with the exercise regimen for better outcomes. Like it's said, nothing good comes easy. Meanwhile, fitness enthusiasts advise you to consult your doctor concerning the right amount of pelvic exercise to engage in, considering your body weight. This is important as squeezing the pelvic muscles for too long without resting for a while can hurt your vaginal muscles.

How to use kegel balls for sexual pleasure

As earlier stated, kegel balls are called several names, all thanks to the role they play in improving sex life. Love balls, or venus balls, as they're fondly called, can be placed into the vagina to stimulate erotic sensations. Below is how to use kegel balls as sex toys.

  • In the same lying position, insert kegel balls into your vagina and initiate squeezing action.

  • Once aroused, start exploring your body.

  • Alternatively, you can increase sexual urge by inserting kegel balls in the vagina and using a vibrator. Once inserted, start squeezing your pelvic muscles and rubbing your clitoris and vaginal opening with the vibrator. This increases orgasm.

How to remove kegel balls

The removal process also follows the same steps as the insertion but in a reverse way.

If your kegel balls have a string attached, here's how to remove them.

  • Lie comfortably on your back.

  • Rub some peas of lubricant on your vaginal opening and gently pull the string to remove the balls.

For balls without a string, follow these steps:

  • First, stand with your feet apart from each other.

  • Apply lubricant and squat comfortably.

  • While squatting, squeeze your vaginal muscles to push out balls from the vagina.

If the balls don't pull out, add more lubricant to the vaginal opening. Alternatively, you can cough, jump or move around to facilitate muscle contraction and release of balls.
