How Do I Choose the Right Kegel Balls for Me?

How Do I Choose the Right Kegel Balls for Me?

Kegel Balls,the wondrous sex toys that come with numerous proven health benefits – from helping to improve sexual response to aiding in bladder control. This makes them a popular sexual wellness product for people with vulvas.

But with a wide range of weights, sizes and materials to choose from, how do you make sure you’re choosing the right Kegel Balls for your unique body and needs?

We’ve recruited the help of sex educator Emma Hewitt to answer just that, resulting in this ultimate guide to choosing the perfect Kegel Balls for you!

What to Kegel Balls do?

According to Emma, our expert, Kegel Balls work to strengthen the pelvic floor or PC muscles.

“Our pelvic floor consists of a group of interweaving muscles that support our bladder, uterus, rectum and small intestine. These muscles work like a sling to keep everything in place inside our bodies,” she explained.

“As we age these muscles tend to loosen but things like pregnancy, childbirth and being overweight can all weaken these muscles too. A weakened pelvic floor can result in prolapse of these muscles or incontinence. A strong pelvic floor can help to prevent these issues, but it can also help to give you stronger and longer lasting orgasms too!”

The stronger your PC muscles are the more blood flow that is sent to your pelvic region resulting in stronger contractions when you orgasm. That extra blood makes your genitals more sensitive and more receptive to touch too which is another bonus of a healthy pelvic floor.

How do I choose the right Kegel Balls?

Emma said there are a few different styles of Kegel Balls that you need to know about before making your purchase, including:

  • Single balls – ideal for first timers

  • Double balls that are connected – a step up, still easy to use. More fullness.

  • Double balls without a connector – a fairly advanced style that is generally referred to as ben wa balls. Easy to insert but harder to keep in place, and the most difficult to remove once you are finished as they can be slippery little suckers once inserted!

Know your size and weight:

At first glance, it doesn’t appear that there is all that much difference in sizes, but Emma said even a small difference can have a big impact with this type of product.

“To put it simply, the bigger a ball is, the easier it is to keep in place as your muscles need to do less work to clamp around it and keep it in place. But the same is true with a lighter ball. The lighter it is, the easier it is to hold in place,” she explained.

As a rule, Emma suggests that those that have not given birth should go for smaller yet heavier balls and those that have given birth should go for larger yet lighter ones.

Material:

Material has a lot to do with weight, but also body-safety and how they will feel inside your body. For example, glass is going to be naturally heavy while a silicone or ABS plastic option can be quite light.

“You also want to think about body-safety. As a product that will be inserted inside the vagina frequently, it is very important to choose a material that is non-porous. This means that it can be completely sterilized between uses and won’t harbour bacteria,” Emma warned.

“Glass, steel, silicone and ABS plastic are all examples of this. But consider the retrieval cord or connecting cord too. Sometimes these are made from porous materials like string which can reintroduce bacteria into the body.”

If you would prefer a set with a retrieval cord or connecting sleeve, Emma suggests to opt for a silicone one.

Ability to upgrade and increase weights

Some sets will come with the ability to upgrade. This is usually in the form of a silicone connector and multiple weighted balls so that you can increase the weight you are using as you become stronger. If you’re taking your pelvic floor training seriously, choosing a product that enables you to increase the weight as you go will help to keep your momentum.
