Wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap.
Wash your Kegel balls with warm water and antibacterial soap, and then dry them off with a clean towel.
Rub a generous amount of water-based lube on the balls so they’re easy to insert.
How to insert them
Now that you’ve prepared your Kegel balls, the real fun can begin.
Make sure you apply a liberal amount of lube to your vaginal opening before you get into position. This will help prevent discomfort as you guide the Kegel balls in.
After you’re lubed up, you should:
How you feel with the balls inside varies from person to person, but it’s generally a subtle, tingly sensation. This feeling usually intensifies with movement, like walking, bending down, or reaching up.
If you want to strengthen your pelvic floor, targeted exercises will help you identify and tone your muscles.
If you want to experiment, you’ll focus less on exercise and more on individual sexploration.
For pelvic exercise only
Once you’re comfortable with traditional Kegels or other pelvic floor exercises, consider adding weighted Kegel balls. They can enhance your workout by adding an extra challenge.
If you want to add Kegel balls to your routine, you should:
For solo sexual pleasure
Kegel balls typically aren’t used in the same way as traditional sex toys.
Although moving them in and out of your vagina is definitely an option, you may find that it’s more intense to leave them inside.
They’ll enhance the sensation of whatever you’re doing, whether that’s rubbing your clitoris or exploring your erogenous zones.
Need some ideas? Here are two ways you can incorporate Kegel balls to intensify solo play:
While lying in bed, put your Kegel balls inside your vagina, and start to squeeze your pelvic muscles. As you become more aroused and self-lubricated, begin to explore your body.
Insert your Kegel balls, and then grab your favorite vibrator. As you squeeze, rub your vibrator on your clitoris and around your vaginal opening.
For partner play
If you want to increase your sensitivity during vaginal sex, Kegel balls can help you and your partner heat things up.
You can insert them before you head out on your date (a la Anastasia Steele) or make insertion the first part of an intense round of foreplay. The longer the balls are in, the more aroused you’ll be when it’s time for the main event.
Just make sure to pull the balls out before your partner — or another toy — slides in.
If you’re comfortable using Kegel balls on your own, you can heat things up with your partner by leaving them in during vaginal penetration. Your partner’s penis or dildo will move the balls around, creating intense sensations for you. Keeping the thrusts slow and steady will help prevent discomfort.
Kegel balls can also make anal sex more pleasurable. Anal penetration can push the balls against your G-spot, sending intense sensations throughout your body.
Although it may be tempting, you should never insert Kegel balls into your anus. They aren’t made for this purpose and could cause discomfort. They’re also more likely to get stuck in this location.
Beads specifically made for anal play are available, though. You should be able to find these at a sex shop or via online retailers.
How to remove them
If your Kegel balls have a removal string or loop, you should:
Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip distance apart.
How to clean and store them
After you remove your Kegel balls, you should:
