Miss those intense sensations and extremely powerful orgasms? Your man does, too! Introducing the all-new Eve’s Cherries of Lust Kegel Ball. They’re specifically designed to tone and tighten your vagina...
One look at Ben Wa balls and you would automatically assume that they have only been around for a few years or even just in the 21st century. But what most of you don't know is that these spheres of sensations have been around since 500 AD!
Historically speaking, they are believed to be have been invented by the Japanese people during that time and were created solely for the pleasure of men whilst having intercourse. Through the power of early feminism, women soon realized that they could use the trinkets for their own pleasure as well!
The first Ben Wa balls varied at how they were constructed and what was used to make them were different for every region. But most believe that the original ones consisted of only one ball (not two like the regular ones we have today) usually made of metal with mercury inside and they didn't have any string attachments which only came after a while.
Only recently then has it be considered that it can also be used for health purposes. It's not just for enhancing women's sex drive, and more satisfying orgasms. The most common health benefit is for the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles, making them excellent devices to use for Kegel exercises. Ben Wa balls can benefit mothers who have just given birth to help restore the natural state of their vaginal walls. Middle-aged women and older who are starting to lose control over their bladder (AKA not being able to hold your urine than usual; making tiny accidents when you sneeze, cough, laugh, etc.) have proven that working out with the balls have proven to be effective in helping them restrain themselves. Lastly, using them for Kegel exercises can help in the prevention of other serious diseases in the rectum, bladder, and uterus.
In this collection, you will be able to find every shape, color, design, feature, all the different bells and whistles you could expect from a set of Ben Wa balls and more. One thing's for sure, every single one of them can provide both the sexual and health benefits like any piece should. We don't even know where to start introducing them to you. Women of all ages, all levels, and all preferences will surely be able to choose the right ones for them here. Whether silicone, plastic, metal, glass, regular or vibrating, with or without string attachments, two beads or more, weighted or not, the possibilities are endless.
We're not stopping there. Yoni eggs are making a break for women's reproductive health nowadays, so we've decided to give them a spot and even their own collection in this store. Yoni eggs are made from precious gemstones which have their own unique set of healing properties which are then carved and shaped into eggs. If you're more into spiritual healing in other aspects, you might want to check these out.

Ben wa balls are small balls designed to be inserted into the vagina.
What is their purpose?
Ben wa balls are designed to aid in the strengthening and health of the pelvic floor muscles. They can also be used for sexual pleasure.
What are pelvic floor muscles?
The pelvic floor muscles (technically called the pubococcygeus muscles) are a group of muscles that form a kind of hammock, covering the bottom of your torso.
What do the pelvic floor muscles do?
The pelvic floor muscles hold your lower internal organs in place. They also play a pivotal role in urination, defecation, and sexual function.
Why are the pelvic floor muscles important?
The pelvic floor muscles can become either weakened or tightened throughout your everyday life. When this happens, many of your bodily functions can be impacted leading to things such as incontinence, loss of sexual drive, or even prolapse.
How do you know if there is a problem with your pelvic floor muscles?
While a proper diagnosis of pelvic floor muscles can only really be obtained from a doctor, there are some symptoms that may indicate a problem. These include:
Needing several bowel movements close together.
Feeling like you cannot complete a bowel movement.
Pain during sexual intercourse (women only).
Pain in your pelvis, genitals or rectum.
Unexplained lower back pain.
Urine or stool leakage.
Needing to urinate frequently.
Starting and stopping while urinating.
If you experience one or more of these with no evident explanation, you should consult your doctor for further advice. It is important to find out if your pelvic floor is too tight, too loose, or has other problems, as this will affect the treatment and exercises necessary.
How do you fix a problem with your pelvic floor muscles?
While complex problems should only be dealt with by your doctor, tightness or looseness of your pelvic floor muscles can be dealt with by utilising a simple exercise called Kegel exercises.
What are Kegel exercises?
Kegel exercises are simple exercises where you pull up the muscles of your pelvic floor, hold them for a few seconds, and then release them. This serves to strengthen a loosened or weakened pelvic floor.
Who should do Kegel exercises?
While Kegel exercises are often only recommended to people with pelvic floor problems (and particularly women), almost everyone can stand to benefit from performing them every day throughout their life. It’s just like any other muscle in the body, regularly exercising it can help to keep it healthy!
How often should you do Kegel exercises?
How many Kegel exercises should you do?
Generally the most common advice is to do a set of ten Kegel exercises, three times a day.
What about a tight pelvic floor?
While regular Kegel exercises serve to tighten the pelvic floor muscles, they don’t help much if your pelvic floor is already tight. In this situation, you should instead use reverse Kegel exercises.
What are reverse Kegel exercises?
Reverse Kegel exercises are the exact opposite of normal Kegel exercises. Instead you push downwards with the pelvic floor muscles, hold them in place, then relax them again.
Are Kegel exercises effective?
For many people, regularly performing Kegel exercises can make a massive difference to their lives. However there are two common problems that can make them ineffective for others. Firstly, it can be difficult to correctly identify the correct muscles to exercise. Secondly, some people find that the exercises alone do not have sufficient intensity to produce the desired results.
How do you identify your pelvic floor muscles?
While urinating, attempt to stop the flow mid-stream. This action utilises the front portion of the pelvic floor muscles. While having a bowel movement, take note of the muscles used to “push”, or if you need a bowel movement, the muscles you use to “hold it in”. This is the rear portion of your pelvic floor muscles. Do not do these things regularly as they may cause you harm.
How do you increase the intensity of your Kegel exercises?
There are many different types of vaginal weights available which can help with your Kegel exercises. These devices are regularly used to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, with one of the most common being the Ben Wa Ball.
What do ben wa balls do?
Ben wa balls don’t really do anything by themselves. Once inserted into your body though, simply holding them in place can exercise your pelvic floor similarly to Kegel exercises. You can also wear them while performing Kegel exercises to make them harder and more impactful.
Are they all the same?
No! There are a large variety of ben wa balls available. Some perform slightly different functions, others vary in size. There are also many different materials your ben wa balls can be made of.
You may run across a number of different kinds of ben wa balls, but they all fall into one of the above categories. This is simply because they have been around for such a long time that they are known by many different names throughout history.
What other names are there for ben wa balls?
Love balls, geisha balls, orgasm balls, rin-no-tama, venus balls, kegel balls, pleasure balls, vaginal beads, vaginal exercise balls, vagina balls, the list goes on and on. These are for the most part, all different names for exactly the same thing.
How old are they?
We don’t really know. Most sources seem to agree that ben wa balls originated in either ancient China, or ancient Japan. There are no exact dates though, as much of the history surrounding them is oral, rather than written.
Unlike other types, duotone ben wa balls are hollow. Inside the ball, there is usually another, smaller ball inside. These are based on the original designs of ben wa balls, which had a solid exterior and a mercury core. The inner section of these balls create vibrations which can stimulate your vagina while you wear them.
Can you use vibrating ben wa balls wirelessly / long distance?
Some variants of vibrating ben wa balls will come with a remote control which allow you to turn them on and off while they are inserted. Some of these are even controlled by a phone app. You can give your partner the controls to choose when and where you will receive sexual stimulation.
What are string or sheath ben wa balls?
String/sheath balls aren’t greatly different from kegel balls. The main distinction is that these balls are joined together, either by string, or by a silicone sheath which holds the balls in place. This type of ben wa ball is much easier to remove than individual ones as you can simply pull on the string to remove the balls.
What are gemstone ben wa balls?
Gemstone ben wa balls are slightly different, in that they are made out of precious stones such as jade or obsidian. Some believe that these gemstones carry special powers, that can aid the body with healing, emotions, relaxation, and many other things as well as working on the health of the pelvic floor muscles.
What materials are ben wa balls made out of?
They can be made from a variety of materials. Some of the most common include: silicone, glass, stainless steel or other metals, jade, obsidian and rubber.
How do I choose the right set of ben wa balls for myself?
When deciding on a set, there are a few things you should consider. Firstly, you should think about why you want to use them, as all of them will work your pelvic floor muscles, but some may stimulate you sexually as well which may or may not be something you want. Next you should think about your body, and the state of your pelvic floor muscles as this will help you choose appropriately sized and weighted balls. Finally, you should consider price, material, and the look of the balls.
Which should I start with?
For most people, starting with a larger and lighter set of ben wa balls is advised.
When should I move up to a new set of ben wa balls?
Once you feel that holding the ben wa balls in place is no longer a challenge, it’s time to graduate to your next set!
What size should I buy?
This depends on your pelvic floor muscles. Inexperienced users, or those with a weaker pelvic floor should buy larger ben wa balls. These have a larger surface area so it is easier for your muscles to hold onto them. As your muscles become stronger you can move onto smaller sized balls to give your body more of a challenge.
What weight ben wa ball should I buy?
Again this depends on your pelvic floor muscles. Inexperienced users, or those with a weaker pelvic floor should buy lighter ones. As you become stronger and more experienced, you can go heavier.
Which material should I buy?
To an extent, this is a personal decision. Each material can feel different when inside your body. For example, both glass and stainless steel will feel very smooth, but one may feel much colder than the other. One consideration that may change your decision is that silicone is generally much easier for your muscles to grip onto than all the other materials. If you have trouble keeping the balls in, or have a particularly weak pelvic floor you may consider buying silicone at first.
What color ben wa balls should I buy?
Entirely up to you! Color makes no difference to their effectiveness, so you can simply choose your favourite, or whichever you think looks the best. Some companies will color code their ben wa balls though, with different colors indicating the different weights of the balls. In this case, you should find out what the colors mean, and choose the most appropriate one for you.
Which are the best?
This isn’t a question with one simple answer, as each person may believe a different type or set to be the best. As long as you make sure you buy a high quality set, and use them correctly, then they are all as good as each other.
Do they have to be joined together?
Not at all! While many sets come with string or a sheath to hold the balls together, you can just as easily insert separate, individual balls. Some people find the motion of multiple separate balls inside their bodies strange, or dislike it when they knock against each other. This is a personal thing though, so if you want to give individual balls a try then it’s entirely up to you!
Do I have to use multiple ben wa balls?
Again this is a completely personal decision. Generally people find that having multiple balls increase the sexual stimulation they receive while wearing them, whereas some people find having just a single ball much more engaging when working out their pelvic floor muscles. The easiest way to decide is to simply test both, and see which you prefer!
Are they safe?
Completely! As long as you purchase a high quality set, and take good care of them (by cleaning and storing them properly) then you should have no problems whatsoever.
Are vibrating ben wa balls safe?
You might be worried about inserting an electrical object fully into your body. As long as they are completely sealed though, and no water or other fluids can get inside them, then they are perfectly safe.
Well anything can get lost! But you probably mean inside your body. As long as you don’t put them in your butt, they can’t really go anywhere so they can’t get lost. The cervix blocks the path deeper into the body so they remain in the vagina until you are ready to take them out.
As long as you are using them correctly, they should cause you no pain at all. If you experience any pain, remove them immediately.
Are there risks to using them?
We won’t lie to you. There are always some risks when it comes to inserting objects into your body. However if you ensure that you purchase a high quality set, use them correctly, and take proper care of them, these risks should be minimal.
Can they give you infections or STIs?
On their own, they cannot give you infections or STIs. If you don’t keep them properly clean though, bacteria can build up on them which can cause infections. We also recommend not letting anyone else use them, to avoid any risk of sexually transmitted diseases or infections.
Are they good for you?
Absolutely! There are a huge range of benefits both health focused, and sexually focused, that ben wa balls can provide you.
Are ben wa balls really effective?
We understand that sometimes you might be skeptical of cures like this, but we’ve found that in the majority of women who wear our products, they do experience noticeable improvement in both their pelvic floor muscles, and their sexual pleasure.
Are there any medical reasons to wear ben wa balls?
Yes, doctors often recommend them to their patients if they are suffering from various types of pelvic floor dysfunction.
What are the health benefits of wearing ben wa balls?
There are many health benefits! Primarily they can help you maintain a strong set of pelvic floor muscles, but doing so also gives you other benefits such as: increasing vaginal blood flow keeping everything healthier, helping control all types of incontinence, regain tone of the pelvic area after childbirth, increase overall core strength, and much more!
What are the sexual benefits of wearing ben wa balls?
Obviously having something else at work while enjoying sexual activity will have the simple effect of increasing the stimulation and sensations you feel. Aside from the basic, physical stimulus though, ben wa balls can benefit you sexually in a number of ways by increasing the health of your pelvic floor muscles. These include: making reaching orgasm easier, increasing the intensity of your orgasms, tightening your vagina, giving you more control over your muscles during sex, and many more!
Can they help with incontinence?
Yes! Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can give you much greater control over all types of incontinence. In some cases it can even cure the condition completely. Even if this isn’t the case, most people who improve their pelvic floor tend to experience some level of improvement with their incontinence.
You should check with your doctor before using them during pregnancy. If the doctor gives you the all clear to use them, you should avoid vibrating varieties and stick with standard balls.
What benefits can they provide during pregnancy?
Benefits to pregnant women include: finding it easier to support the weight of your growing baby, reduced risk of organ prolapse, reduces the likelihood of getting hemorrhoids or constipation, relaxes the muscles so childbirth can be easier, and much more!
Childbirth can put a massive amount of strain on your pelvic floor muscles, and leave them in a sorry state. Making use of ben wa balls can help you return these important muscles to their pre childbirth state.
Did you say ben wa balls can tighten my vagina?
Yes we did! Although it’s not exactly what you think. Technically your vagina can’t really become loose as it’s meant to expand when aroused, but the muscles around the vagina (the pelvic floor muscles) can become weaker. When this happens you might struggle to “grip” things such as a penis with your vagina which gives the illusion that it’s become saggy and loose. Strengthening the pelvic floor reverses this process, and lets your clamp down on anything you insert as tightly as you could in your twenties!
Okay, I’m sold! Where can I buy them?
Great. It’s your lucky day! We have a massive range of high quality ben wa balls right here on this very site!
Simply insert them into your vagina! What you do after that will depend on why you’ve decided to use them.
How do I prepare ben wa balls for use?
Before you start using them, you should give them a check over to make sure they aren’t damaged in any way. If you see no problems with the balls themselves, you should give them a thorough cleaning to remove any germs or bacteria that might have built up on them between uses.
How do I insert them?
The process can vary slightly from person to person. In essence it’s exactly the same as putting anything else in your vagina.You might find it helpful to get yourself a bit aroused first for some natural lubrication, use some store-bought lubricant, or simply go at it dry.
Do you have to use lubrication?
Not at all! It’s entirely down to your own body. If you naturally have quite a “slippery” vagina then you might have no issues inserting them with no additional help. Putting things into your vagina can be a bit weird though, so generally we do advise that you use at least a little lubrication.
Which lubricant is the best for use with ben wa balls?
You can use any lubricant that is suitable for vaginal sexual activity. You may want to avoid “tingling” or “cooling” lubricants as they may be a bit distracting or overwhelming, but essentially it’s down to your own personal preference. One important note is that silicone lubricants should not be used with silicone ben wa balls.
How much lubrication should you use?
You should use as much lubrication as you feel is necessary. It tends to be slightly better to err on the side of caution and add more lube gradually, as using too much can make your ben wa balls very slippery and make it much more difficult to hold them inside your body.
How far do you insert ben wa balls?
There’s no specific rule on how far you should insert them. If you’re using them for Kegel exercises then you might want to target a specific area that you want to “squeeze”. If you’re using them for sexual pleasure, then you can insert them as far as you want. The cervix will stop them going too far.
What do I do once they are in?
Entirely up to you. Some people prefer to just leave them in place for a while, others perform exercises, some even have sex! It depends entirely on what you want to get out of the experience.
Should I do my Kegel exercises while I wear them?
You can. At first you may find it difficult due to the extra weight of the balls inside your body. If you keep practising though, you should be able to perform your Kegel exercises just as well while having the balls inside your body.
Do I have to do my Kegel exercises while I wear them?
Not at all, for many women simply wearing the balls is enough of a challenge and still helps to improve your pelvic floor muscles.
What else can I do while I wear them?
They can be great for more than just strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. There are many sexual activities that can become much more intense while you use them, as well as some everyday activities that can be more enjoyable while wearing ben wa balls.
What sexual activities do ben wa balls improve?
Nearly anything you can think of! Just wearing them stimulates the inside of your vagina so things such as masturbation, massages, or using other sex toys can all become much more intense.
Are ben wa balls a sex toy?
Yes and no. While they can be used for sexual pleasure, many of their uses are instead medical in nature. Some types are designed with sexual pleasure in mind (such as the historical versions with a mercury core) and could be considered more sex toy than health accessory.
Can I wear them while having sex?
You can, and one of their original uses was by Japanese geishas to increase the sexual pleasure of the men they had sex with. If you want to try it, you might want to consult your partner first. Some men may find it strange to feel another object inside the vagina with their penis, although others enjoy the extra stimulation. It’s definitely worth trying once though, and adding the ben wa balls to the penis can create some incredibly intense experiences for you. If you’re a lesbian though, it shouldn’t really change anything for your partner!
Should I push and pull them in and out like a dildo or penis?
You can do this, if you find it sexually enjoyable, although if you want this kind of stimulation you might be better off with a different sex toy.
Which are the best for sexual stimulation?
Most people find that the extra vibrations offered by both duotone and vibrating ben wa balls can give them a lot of extra sexual stimulation.
Weren’t they in 50 Shades Darker?
Yes! Although some of the ways that they were depicted in the film weren’t completely accurate to the real life experience unfortunately.
Can I orgasm just by wearing them?
It’s not impossible, but it’s not super common. While they enhance sexual pleasure they generally won’t produce orgasms by themselves. The women who do orgasm purely from them tend to use vibrating or duotone balls.
What else can I do while I wear them?
It doesn’t just have to be sexual activity that you explore while wearing your ben wa balls. Some common things people enjoy are wearing them while shopping, taking a hike, or even while they exercise!
Well of course! Nobody else knows you’re wearing them (unless you have a particularly loud vibrating set). Why not work on your pelvic floor muscles while doing mundane things like picking up the shopping?
Can I do exercise while I wear them?
Yep! Why not add an extra challenge to a simple run or weights session by having to also hold your ben wa balls in place? It can teach you to control your muscles in ways that you didn’t even know were possible!
Can they fall out?
They can fall out, but if you buy the correct set for your body and experience level you shouldn’t have any problems. If you do find it happening often it may be that you need to try a different set.
Why do they fall out?
Usually ben wa balls falling out is a symptom of a simple problem. Sometimes you might have used a touch too much lube. Sometimes your ben wa balls may be a little too heavy, or a little too small. Sometimes your chosen activity might be a little too vigorous (cowgirl anyone?) These things can make it difficult for your pelvic floor muscles to hold onto the balls, so they fall out!
How do you stop them from falling out?
Often the simplest way to stop then from falling out is to remove them and give them a little dry off before you reinsert them. If that doesn’t solve the problem, then it might be worth considering a larger or lighter set of ben wa balls until your pelvic floor muscles become stronger.
For how long should you wear them?
At first you might find it difficult to wear ben wa balls for an extended period of time. Usually it is best to start by wearing them for a few minutes, then a few minutes longer, and build it up over time.
How long can you wear them?
There’s no real limit to how long you can wear them. Some people claim to have worn them for hours and hours with no problems. It’s important to listen to your own body, and if you begin to feel tired or achy then remove them and take a break.
Can I wear them and exercise my pelvic floor muscles while I sleep?
We do not recommend that you wear ben wa balls while you sleep.
How long does it take for them to have an effect?
This varies from person to person. Most people will notice some effects within a few weeks.
Do I need to remove them to pee?
You definitely don’t have to, but it can help a lot. When peeing you relax your pelvic floor muscles so it can be much easier for them to slip out. None of us want to fish around in our toilets for a set of ben wa balls after all.
How difficult is it to remove them?
Sometimes it can be a little difficult to remove them, but usually the more you use them the easier it becomes.
How do I remove my them?
Generally they shouldn’t be too difficult to take out. If you have trouble you can try to “fish them out” with a “hooked” finger, essentially just pulling them out. If that doesn’t work then you can try a little extra lubricant to ease their passage, or try to bear down like you are having a bowel movement to push them out.
I can’t get them out, what do I do?!
Don’t panic! Ben wa balls cant get stuck inside your body. Often when we panic we become more tense which can make them more difficult to remove. The most important thing to do is not to panic.
I’ve removed them, what now?
Once you’ve finished using them and successfully removed them, you aren’t completely done. You still need to clean them and store them appropriately to keep them in tip top condition.
How to clean them?
Most can be cleaned simply with soap and warm water. Depending on the materials they are made of there may be some more detailed cleaning instructions. Always refer to the instructions that come with your chosen balls.
How to store them?
You should try to store each set individually in either a bag or box. This keeps them from picking up germs and bacteria while in storage, or getting damaged from being dropped or having things put on top of them. Usually the box they came in is a good solution to store your ben wa balls. It’s also important to make sure you have thoroughly dried them as if they are damp when you put them away mould can build up on them between uses.
What happens if I drop them?
In most cases, dropping them shouldn’t cause any problems. If you do drop them though, be sure to give them a check over to make sure no damage has been caused.
They rattle when I wear them. What’s the deal?
Rattling is completely normal and can be caused by many things. Common examples include the balls clicking together, or by using a duotone ben wa ball.
My pelvic muscles ache after using my ben wa balls. Why?
Sometimes this can be completely harmless and is just a sign that the muscles have worked out and are becoming stronger. Sometimes though it can be a sign of overuse. You should listen to your body and if you feel you’ve used them too much then take a break.
Can you them anally?
Technically you could, but you shouldn’t. Ben wa balls fully enter the body, and the rectum can swallow things that are put inside it, taking it deeper into the body. You should only use sex toys with a solid base anally.
What do they feel like?
Different people have different experiences with ben wa balls. Some don’t really feel anything, while others might feel vibrations from the balls. Some enjoy the sensations, while others get very little from them. Many feelings will be dependant on the size, shape and materials your ben wa balls are made of.
How expensive are they?
They don’t have to be expensive! You can find some sets very cheaply, while others can be much more expensive. The more important thing to consider is the quality of the balls, and how suitable they are for your body, rather than the price.
Can men use them?
Men can use them, or at least something similar, but to make use of them they need to be inserted into the rectum. Due to this, men should find products which have a flared base, to prevent them from being sucked into the colon.
What are the benefits for men to use ben wa balls or similar pelvic floor exercisers?
Many of the health benefits women can enjoy are equally applicable to men. They can also experience things such as: stronger, firmer erections, less issues maintaining an erection, stronger ejaculation, and many more.
I get a discharge when I use my ben wa balls, why?
If you find that you are having vaginal discharge while using ben wa balls, it’s usually a sign that you should remove your ben wa balls and clean them.
Can they break inside my body?
If they aren’t in a good condition, it is possible for them to break inside your body. It’s important to ensure that they are in good condition before you insert them into your body.
Can they affect my periods?
As far as we are aware, they have no effect on your periods. You may want to postpone using them while on your period though, as it may be messy.
Can they make me bleed?
As long as they are in good condition, with no sharp or raised edges, they shouldn’t cause any bleeding. If you do notice blood coming from your vagina while wearing your ben wa balls, remove them immediately.
Do I need to check with my doctor before I use them?
You don’t have to check with your doctor before you use them, although in some cases it can be advisable. If you suspect you have any problems with your pelvic floor then ask your doctors opinion before you use them.
Can you use more than one set?
In theory you can use as many ben wa balls as you like. After a point though, it may become uncomfortable. It isn’t completely uncommon to use up to four, so if you are interested in the challenge, then you can give it a go!
