Phallic Friday - Ben Wa Balls

Ben Wa Balls are another strange sexual pleasure item I thought I'd share today. They are weighted balls, about the size of a large marble, which are inserted vaginally.

They have lots of other names too, according to Wikipedia, they include - Ben Wa balls, also known as Burmese bells, BenoƮt balls, Orgasm balls, "rin-no-tama", Venus balls or Geisha balls. More info is on Wikipedia, here.

Ben Wa Balls can be used to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. After inserting the balls, they press down on the vaginal opening, and you need to have strong pelvic floor muscles to hold them in for long periods of time. I've read that you can vacuum and do other housework while holding the Ben Wa Balls inside, so you don't actively concentrate on them, leaving the muscles to work, while doing other jobs. How handy!

Ben Wa Balls can be used to practice vaginal wall contractions. You are supposed to be able to move two Ben Wa Balls around inside you, which makes for strong walls for partner satisfaction!

They can also be used as something to enhance the sexual experience, and to tease making a long drawn out tease to orgasm.

Many years ago I tried these but they were much better in my imagination than in practice - although maybe I needed more practice at them! I don't know.

There are similar balls (but with a flared end) designed to be used anally, which can also be used by men.

Of course, these things aren't for everyone.

Have you had pleasure from Ben Wa Balls?


  1. I'd probably only use them while doing housework, and since I try to do housework as little as possible, I wouldn't get value for money ;)

    1. LOL I think that may have been my problem!
