Geisha Balls – Pelvic Floor / Ben Wa / Kegel Balls
The Geisha Balls are a one piece pelvic floor ball set in a silicone harness. Pelvic floor balls, or ben-wa balls, are used to strengthen your pelvic floor/ vaginal wall and your entire core. Often prescribed by doctors and physiotherapists, these balls have a weighted ball inside them which assist in performing pelvic floor exercises. Women use them to decrease and eliminate stress incontinence and strengthen back muscles. Stress incontinence is urine leakage when coughing, sneezing, jumping etc.
The stronger your muscles are, the stronger your orgasm will be too! This is one workout you don’t want to miss!
Tips to use Geisha Balls
Isolate your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle. This is the muscle your kegel exercises will work. Move as if you were trying to stop your urine mid-stream. The muscle you contract is the PC muscle. This is the motion you’ll be making as you perform the exercises. It feels like squeezing or pulling the pelvic floor muscles up toward the lower back. Alternately, you can find this muscle by placing a finger in your vagina and squeezing down until you feel the PC muscle tighten.
Insert the Geisha balls. Find a comfortable, relaxed position, such as sitting or standing, and gently push the balls into your vaginal opening. Stop just as they’re completely in, don’t press them to the back of the vagina or up near the cervix. Leave the cord hanging out. Close your legs to help keep them in place as you position yourself for your exercises. You may need a small amount of water based lubrication – not too much!
Methods to use Geisha Balls
- Perform the sitting exercise. Sit with your legs still closed. Isolate the PC muscle and use it to try to move the balls back and forth. If initially you can’t move the balls back and forth, focus on squeezing the balls and holding it for a few seconds, then relaxing for a few seconds. Medical experts recommend performing kegel exercises 10 times, three times per day
- Perform the standing exercise. The standing exercise uses the weight of the balls and the force of gravity to make you work your PC muscle. Stand and position your feet shoulder-width apart. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in your vagina. If you stop contracting your PC muscle, the balls will fall out. Perform this exercise three times per day, working each time to hold the balls in place longer.
- Perform the squatting exercise. The squatting exercise combines elements of both the sitting and standing exercises. Place your feet as wide apart as you can. Bend your knees slightly to move into an easy squat. Use your PC muscle to both hold the Geisha balls in place and move them back and forth. Move into a deeper squat to make the exercise more challenging.
- Use the Geisha balls during routine activities. This is similar to the standing exercise. Use your PC muscle to hold the balls in place while you do housework, go for a brief walk or take a shower. Make sure you’re strong enough to hold the balls in place so they don’t fall out at potentially embarrassing moments.
Removal & Care
Remove the Geisha balls by gently pulling downward on the retrieval cord. Wash with warm water and very mild soap, or preferable antibacterial toy cleaner. Rinse well, making sure to remove all soap residue as soap can irritate the delicate vaginal tissues.
