There are plenty of options for kegel balls. Lovehoney sent me the Tracey Cox Supersex Toner Balls this month for review. I use kegel balls to exercise my pelvic floor muscles. This simple exercise of contracting and releasing the muscle sounds easy and should be part of my routine. I get bored and I have to admit that I usually forget about it. Kegel balls are a great way to remind me to contract those muscles and make “working them out” a bit more interesting.
After having four children naturally it is sort of assumed that my muscles need toning more than a woman who has never had a child. Every woman can benefit from kegel exercise, no matter if she has had children or not. I use kegels everyday to prevent urine from leaking out without my consent (like when I sneeze). Stronger pelvic floor muscles means more bladder control. The pelvic muscles also contract during orgasm and can be used during sex for more pleasure. Having stronger muscles can enhance your sexual experience and help deliver more a powerful orgasm.
Materials: Silicone and Plastic
Dimensions: 8″ x 1.5″, each ball is 2″ x 1.5″
I prefer silicone and or plastic to metal and glass. Kegel balls should be easy to use and easy to clean. I actually own quite a few varieties of kegel balls. These Tracey Cox Supersex Toner Balls are good for beginners to advanced users. Ideally you will want to start with big, lighter balls and work your way up to heavy smaller balls. 1
These kegel balls weigh in at 76 grams. They feel heavier than the Fun Factory Smartballs, but it is really hard to tell. 2 They are 1 gram heavier then the LELO Luna bead blue colored balls, which are the heavier of the variety that LELO carries.
The nice thing about these balls is that they come ready to go with a 4″ pull string. I do not want to think about assembling my kegel balls. The pull string has a bit of stretch to it, but it is thick enough that I am not worried about it breaking anytime soon. Also, the end of the string is rounded (so unlike some other kegel balls I have owned), the string sits comfortably without poking me. The silicone on these balls has a bit of drag to it, so you might need some water based lubrication for insertion. The plastic on these balls is found in a circular pattern on both of the balls. If you click the picture above you can see the image bigger and check out the seam connecting the plastic and the silicone. There is a small seam, which may prove troublesome to clean down the road. I haven’t had a problem cleaning these so far since there is no gap as of yet. The balls are submerge-able and waterproof. Boiling or bleaching them might be a good option for keeping them absolutely germ free. I use soap and water or a sex toy cleaner, but I am admittedly less anal about such things. 3
The balls are firm without any give. Within the balls are smaller balls that roll around with movement and create a mild vibration. The vibrations are audible when I shake them, but cannot be heard at all when they are inserted. The balls are connected with silicone and can be bent at a right angle. I found them comfortable when inserted.
To be honest I can barely feel the vibrations as I move about with the Supersex Toner Balls inserted. I doubt I will ever be the type of gal that has an orgasm using kegel balls. I can’t really feel them vibrating at all as I move. I am just reminded to tighten up my pc muscles more than normal. I wear them for about 20-30 minutes at a time normally, but they can be worn for longer. The Supersex Toner balls can be worn for as long as you feel comfortable wearing them.
I loved the fact that these balls come with a storage pouch. The pouch is white with a white drawstring. I still want to wash them before and after use, but it is nice to have a discreet way store them.
The packaging for the Tracey Cox Supersex Toner Balls was not too discreet, but it was pretty informative. The plastic casing for the balls inside the very informative box was a nice touch.
The only bad news about these kegel balls might be the size for some. I don’t find them uncomfortable at all, but some women who have never had children might find the size a bit much. The balls bend and I had no probably fitting them at all. Just a thought before you buy. I liked the weight of these and found they gave my kegels a good workout. Keeping the size in mind I would have no problem recommending them.
