Kegel Balls

Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls, 221g

I’ve had these kegel balls for some time, having purchased them from Lovehoney in May 2016. It’s taken me until December 2016 to review them as for me, they are the pelvic-floor equivalent of lifting a 200lb barbell! In reality, I haven’t lifted anything much heavier than my toddler daughter who is only about a 10th of that weight!

They are packaged in a lovely sturdy black box, embossed with Fifty Shades of Grey on the lid. Also included in the box are a leaflet with instructions and a silver satin drawstring bag. The pleasure balls themselves are two carbon steel balls interconnected by a sturdy silicone retrieval cord with a large chrome-plated ‘tag’ engraved with ‘Fifty shades of Grey’. Despite the weight being stated as 221g on Lovehoney’s page, my Salter digital balance weighed these balls in at 189g. Nonetheless, they still feel mighty heavy compared with my other kegel balls, though the circumference of these balls seems about the same as the silicone Beyond Aroused balls (also from the Fifty Shades of Grey range; see below).

In use, the balls slide in easily with the help of some water-based lubricant (avoid silicone lube to avoid damaging the retrieval cord), and I can hold them in for about 10 minutes at a time. As this milestone is reached, the lower ball starts to drop and slide out of my vagina. Whether this is due to the weight of the balls or the slipperiness when they’re coated with lube, I’m not quite sure, though I suspect at the present time they are simply more weight than my nether regions can handle!

They are reasonably straightforward to clean with antibacterial cleaner/ soap and warm water, and then I leave them to air dry. The metal tag is pretty big and may get awkward to hold in underwear, though I cannot really comment on this seeing as I’ve not worn them much longer than the aforementioned 10 minutes at a time. I plan to persevere with these balls to see how long I can hold them in for, but only when I’m around the house, as I do not feel confident that these slippery spheres will not make an unwelcome appearance. Imagine the damage these balls could do were they to land on my toes, (or even worse, someone else’s) – ouch! No, far safer to stick with the Beyond Aroused silicone balls for kegel exercise whilst out and about!

The Inner Goddess Pleasure Balls are available from Lovehoney for £24.99.

 

First Time Love Duo Lover Kegel balls

I thought I’d try these to tone up the pelvic floor muscles, and with some lube they go in easily. They weigh 45g so are good for beginners to kegel balls. Other reviewers on Lovehoney had commented that the loop-pull can get in the way and be a bit uncomfortable. This can be the case, but with a bit of manipulation it’s possible to get a good fit.

Cleaning is made easier with a small brush to get into the grooves that go around the middle of each ball. The sensation of having them inside is quite nice, and feels good when they’re being pulled out. A fun way to exercise, and interesting thing for your partner to find! The First Time Love Duo kegel balls are available from Lovehoney for £12.99.

 

Lovehoney BASICS Black jiggle balls

This set of jiggle balls come in a little hard plastic case, inside a cardboard box. The case was snugly wedged in the box, so my eager fingers found it tricky getting it out.

The balls appear sturdy; a tug on the cord between them assured me that I would not end up having to fish a ball out! On first insertion, the balls felt slightly bigger in diameter compared with my other kegel balls. They’re also less forgiving, since they are hard plastic. But with plenty of lube, this did not reoccur on subsequent testing.

Lovehoney BASICS balls felt comfortable to wear, although I only tend to wear them for a couple of hours at a time. The retrieval cord sat comfortably in my underwear without causing irritation. On bending down, I could hear a slight clicking sound, which I discovered to be the inner balls rotating around. I was at home, so this did not cause any embarrassment. If you like to wear jiggle balls in public, these may not be the best ones to use, as the sound could be off-putting.

Upon removing the balls they slid out very easily, on account of the copious secretions they aroused! Cleaning the balls was okay, but not as easy as the FSoG set, due to the dimples in these balls. I found using a tooth brush head with sex toy cleaner the best way to scrub them up.

The plastic case comes in handy for drying and storing the balls after use. A good enough set of jiggle balls for novices or experienced users alike and a pleasant way to ‘warm yourself up’ for your partner. The BASICS Black Jiggle Balls are currently priced at £8.99 from Lovehoney.

 

Fifty Shades of Grey Beyond Aroused Kegel Ball Set

I’m a fan of the FSoG range; after trying some beginners’ kegel balls, I wanted to try some intermediate ones. The fact that these balls are interchangeable in the silicone cradle made them very appealing to me.

The packaging is the classy black box I’ve come to love from this range. Included is a little red drawstring bag. The weights of the balls vary nicely. You can go from a minimum of 40g with the two lightest balls, up to 90g with the heavier ones.

I would be intrigued to see if I could use the balls on their own without the cradle. I’ve not done so yet, as I’m too worried about them getting stuck! The cradle is simple to load with the balls and the assembly slides inside my vagina easily enough with some lube. The tag hangs out, without getting in the way, so it feels comfortable sitting in my pants.

Cleaning is simple. Just squirt some toy cleaner and rinse. They feel comfortable when inserted, and get my juices flowing, though I do not orgasm from them. If I add some clitoral stimulation while wearing them, it gives another dimension to my orgasms as I clench around the balls.

My favourite kegel balls so far! Get your Beyond Aroused set from Lovehoney for £29.99.

Kinky Desires Hearts n Flowers Butt Plug

Having tried glass butt plugs and enjoying their ability to be warmed, I was keen to try a metal plug. Like glass plugs, metal ones are also hygienic and easy-to-clean; qualities I like in my toys. I love a bit of ‘bling,’ so when I saw the cute Hearts n Flowers butt plugs at Kinky Desires, I simply had to get one!

The coloured gems on offer include purple, clear, magenta, turquoise and ruby. These plugs prove popular, as at the time of writing this review they are all sold out. When I purchased mine, the colour options were limited. I would have liked a purple one, but these were sold out so I went for turquoise instead. It is nevertheless stunning.

Heart in my palm!
How deep is your love?

As for the plug itself, it is stainless steel and the dimensions on the website state

  • 75cm (surely a typo, seeing as the other measurements are millimetres, mm!), measuring from pointed tip to heart base,
  • 28mm presumably around the ‘stem’, and
  • 33mm across the heart base.

I think it is more useful to know the circumference of the thickest part of the bulb. By my trusty tape measure, this reads out at 85mm, (3 3/8 inches for imperialists). This was reassuring for me, seeing as I have not played with many ‘hard-material’ plugs with a girth in excess of 4.5 – 5 inches.

The plug is nice and smooth with a mainly flawless finish. There are a couple of ‘dimples’ on one side of the bulb. The underside of the heart base has one or two little ‘bumps’ in the steel. The crystal gem has several ‘snowflake’- like imperfections around the periphery. These are all purely cosmetic, and have no impact whatsoever on the feel of the plug whilst in use.

Before using this plug, I warmed up with a smaller silicone plug to stretch my tight anal opening. When ready to use the Hearts n Flowers plug, I slathered it in water-based lube, gently easing it in. Entry was pretty comfortable, and once in, the narrow stem and flared heart base made sure it was not going to travel anywhere! Despite being smaller than my glass plugs, this little gem beauty felt reasonably filling, and made for a pretty view for my other half during sex.

Since it is not overly thick, and I am somewhat tight vaginally, my other half did not notice much difference to my tightness during our play together. I did find it enjoyable having both holes filled, though, so I would happily use it during sex, or for solo-play with a dildo or vibrator.
