Oh you incredibly incorrect fable that eroticized all of America. Yes, I am speaking of Fifty Shades of NO NO. And although I would love to sit here and rant and rave about how incorrect to the BDSM lifestyle these movies and novels are, lets just explore the famous Ben Wa Balls. Although the movie does not explain how to properly utilize these incredibly orgasmic tools of pleasure and a rite of passage for some woman, lets explore the history of these tools.
Ben Wa Balls in History: Ben Wa Balls are said to originate in JapanCirca 500 CE: where they were called Rin No Tama (‘tinkling bells’) and were made either of metal or ivory. Originally they were a single ball placed in the vagina used to enhance the act of coitus, but shortly evolved into multiple metal covered balls linked by either a chain or silk string for easy removal. Usage of Ben Wa balls create a subtle stimulation, not meant to bring the user to immediate orgasm but rather to tease. It is possible to leave Ben Wa balls in one’s vagina all day, or use them while seated in a rocking chair, for an effect that some find pleasurable. At the end of the sixteenth century, Ralph Fitch, an English traveler, encountered them in the Shan States of Burma. He described their use there by men. Less than a dozen years later, the Florentine merchant Francesco Carletti also reported their use in Thailand, where they were used to enlarge the penis.
The Journey: I discovered the beauty of yoni balls during my Tantric training as we learned the pleasures of strength of the pelvic floor. My guru took us through a vigor’s course and thought us how the Ben Wa Balls could aid us not only to strengthen our PC muscles but offer a complete body & mind healing. As we grow older we tend to lose strength and control on our vaginal walls these are just the facts (nothing that can’t be fixed). Ben Wa Balls come in a cylindrical shape and are used in increasing weights to strengthen the vagina, which improves sexual performance and PC tightening. Ladies no more mild urinary incontinence, such as that which occurs while laughing, or sneezing, this can be treated with Ben wa balls, vaginal weights, or Kegel exercises.
So after that History Lesson and Brief why all woman should utilize Ben Wa Balls
Which ones should you start with?
*The Yoni Eggs: these beautiful carefully crafted crystals (love stones) will aid your root chakra, normally these stones will call out to you as they are crafted to aid you in your healing journey. A Yoni Egg is a very personal thing. I believe that every woman intuitively knows what is best for her. That being said, if it is your first introduction to Yoni Eggs, go with your intuition.
*Luna Beads: I always recommend the LELO Luna beads these beauties contain an inner weight, which moves with the movement of your body, causing you to clench your muscles in response. In a way, you can also tailor your own training goals with the luna beads, they come with two 28 gram beads and two 37 gram beads, which can be used by themselves or in different combinations as you become stronger.
and last but not least
*”Match” Glass Ben Wa Balls: I highly suggest you go with “Match” Pure Gold by Diskrét, if you want to really go-for-it, try these. They are OG Glass Ben Wa style, so no cord. You shouldn’t have a hard time taking them out though — just make sure you’re not scraping or clawing the opening of your vagina trying to get them out. They are non porous, smooth and easy to clean.
I highly recommend utilizing Ben Wa Balls to increase your libido, increase your natural lubrication, tighten your PC muscles and if you’ve never had a vaginal orgasm before, this diligent practice can change your life to an entire new world of delightful pleasures.
