What is a Kegel Ball?
Kegel balls come in many shapes and sizes. You might find them listed under orgasm balls, geisha balls, or shake balls, but they all serve the same purpose. Two weighted balls on the rope form the basic structure of the Kegel set. You may see Kegel balls without cords, larger in size, heavier, or made of silicone and smooth metal. Some Kegel balls have also been developed to generate pulses and send out vibrations that transmit sensations directly to the pelvic floor muscles.
Start with a simple set of low-weight Kegel balls. If you're completely new to pelvic floor training, try Kegels without a ball first.
If you have any vaginal problems such as pelvic pain, endometriosis or pelvic infection, please consult your OB/GYN or sexual health professional before using Kegel balls. They can help you learn how to tell if there's a problem there and if a Kegel ball is right for you.
Do Kegels work?
The answer is yes! If you perform Kegel exercises correctly and regularly, they will strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and tighten your vagina. You may also notice that your orgasms are stronger.
One study looked at the effects of Kegel exercises after childbirth. The findings suggest that eight weeks of pelvic muscle training improves sexual self-efficacy (ie, sexual satisfaction, self-confidence, etc.) after childbirth.
What are the benefits of Kegel balls?
In addition to strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, it also better stimulates orgasm. You may instinctively reach for your best vibrator for an exciting orgasm, but why not try Kegel balls to optimize your pleasure? "By activating and relaxing your pelvic floor, you increase blood flow to your vulva and strengthen the muscles that contract during your orgasm. This enhances the sensation of your vulva and increases the intensity of your orgasm。
There is no official scientific evidence to support the claim that Kegel balls directly increase sexual function and satisfaction. However, we do know that a healthy pelvic floor can increase the enjoyment of sex. Kegel balls are often cited as a great tool for erotic anticipation. Wearing them "awakens the vagina" and stimulates it from the inside, and sex experts believe these contractions promote arousal before and during sex.
