I hate working out. Never liked it and I probably never will. But I do it because I know the benefits of having a strong, healthy body. I want my heart to keep me going as long as I need it! Same goes for my vagina, so I take my kegel exercises just as seriously as my cardio. Kegel exercises strengthen the pubococcygeus (P.C.) muscle of your pelvic floor, which can not only help with incontinence and all sorts of issues surrounding pregnancy and menopause, but can also help women have stronger, more intense orgasms. And the fact just is: amazing orgasms trump my lazy dislike of working out. It’s just true.
While I usually do my kegel exercises by just squeezing my muscles (the same ones that you use to stop your stream of urine mid-flow), when I got the opportunity to test out a toy specific for kegel exercises, I jumped on it. I figured, hey, if I’m going to have to work out, why not make it as fun as possible. So yes, I think of my Fun Factory Smart Balls as a hip-hop cardio dance class for my vag.
My little red/grey Smart Balls are little (about 1 ½” diameter) elastomer (phthalate free!) spheres attached to each other by a short stalk with a string loop hanging off the side of one ball. They have little round weights in the middle of them that you can’t actually see, but you can definitely feel and hear, especially if you shake them. To use them for kegels, you basically just insert one or both balls into your vagina and squeeze your muscles around them. For extra resistance, you can gently tug on the string loop. Even sexier than the hottest of pole workout videos.
I’ll admit it was a little weird to me to get all aroused and excited just to exercise my P.C. muscle, but to get the balls into my vag, I needed to be hot and bothered. I mean, I guess I could have just lubed them up and shoved them in, but I’m a pretty big supporter of treating my vagina the way I’d like to be treated, so I showed her a little love and she opened right up for me. Once the Smart Balls were in, I could feel my muscles working harder to squeeze around them (which is the whole point). It definitely didn’t hurt, but it was a little uncomfortable – like pushing yourself to grab the heavier weight or speed up the tread mill. It forced my body to work a little harder to shape up, and in return helped by muscles get stronger. Pulling on the cord definitely created a resistance that was noticeable, but it also allowed me to control how much resistance there was, which was really nice.
I even walked around my house with the Smart Balls still inside me and wasn’t bothered by them at all. They didn’t move or jingle or anything and I was able to continue my hardcore workout while I washed my dishes and watched T.V. At that point it was no longer sexy for me really, but it did make me feel like I had a secret, which gave my evening a dirty little edge – and that’s at total turn on.
I don’t think I’d ever use these balls for a sexual experience, per say (though you can), I will say that they did have what it takes to be a total turn on… all while giving me the tightest, hot orgasmest, healthiest vag on the block. Two thumbs up for 2 Smart Balls!
