How To Choose & Use Love Balls

Love Balls are weighted spheres designed to slip inside the vagina. The weights inside the balls cause them to move around as you do, twirling around inside in response to your movements providing teasing and massaging sensations as well as an arousing reminder of their presence.

Also known as Love Eggs, Geisha Balls, Ben Wa Balls, Orgasm Balls, Jiggle Balls, and Duotone Balls, love balls seem to have a long history rooted in Eastern/Taoist sexuality. They are believed to have originated in Japan to give men extra sensations during intercourse, but the intrepid women soon realised the sensual and exercising benefits of wearing them on their own.


In terms of pleasure and stimulation, love balls seem to have fans and critics in equal measure. Some womxn swear to climaxing whilst dashing for the bus, whereas others tell us they found love balls about as stimulating as a tampon, i.e they couldn’t really feel anything. Choosing the right size and weight is key to getting a balance between having their massaging presence felt and prompting your body’s natural response to squeezing to keep them inside.

The most important thing to remember about Love Balls is that they require your movements to be stimulating – they are not a toy to simply lie back and enjoy.

  • Their constant small movements build a slow-burning arousal.
  • Your PC Muscles naturally contract to keep a grip, making them stronger – and a strong PC means stronger, longer, easier orgasms.
  • Worn during penetrative sex, love balls can deliver extra sensations and stimulation for both partners.

Which love balls should you choose?

Beginners should start with larger-size balls as these are easier to keep inside the vagina. Their larger size also means their presence is more likely to be felt during use – larger balls are harder to ignore!

As your PC muscle develops and becomes stronger, you can move onto smaller, heavier balls. Smaller and heavier means your PC muscle has to work harder to keep a hold of the balls.

Ben Wa Balls

The massaging sensations of love balls are usually enjoyed solo but you can use them during partnered sex to add extra stimulation during penetration. If you fancy giving this a go, we recommend starting with small-size balls such as Ben Wa balls unless you and your partner are very different in size. Ben Wa balls are smaller and heavier, and terms of PC muscle exercise, these are the hardest to keep inside.

Ben Wa balls aren’t joined together by a cord but don’t worry – they’re so heavy that they won’t “get lost” – to remove them, simply loosen your vaginal grip and gravity will take its course…

How to insert love balls

Coating your love balls in water-based lube makes inserting them a lot easier. Remember though, the easier and slipperier they are to insert, the more they will be inclined to slide out! Start by lying down, crooking one leg up and popping each love ball inside your vagina one at a time (there are usually two on a cord, but occasionally only a single ball).

You could just try squeezing your PC muscle against them in this position, and perhaps adding a clitoral vibrator if their presence has prompted a frisky mood!

Once you’ve become accustomed to the feeling of love balls inside you, it’s time to stand up and start moving around. As you become more confident, you can try ‘wearing’ your love balls during the day to spice up everyday tasks – the constant reminder of them inside can build and prolong arousal as well as be a thrilling secret only you know about…We’ll never forget the three female execs who came to Sh! to buy love balls to liven up their afternoon meeting – we like your style! Just remember – you will want to be uber-confident you can keep a grip on your balls if you decide to venture out into the world whilst wearing them, or you might just find yourself chasing an escaped ball down the frozen aisle in Tesco!
