Complete guide with everything about Chinese balls

Chinese balls are not devices that provide pleasure directly

The first thing I would like to mention is that Chinese balls aren’t a tool that gives pleasure, a minimum of not direct pleasure.

Do not think that you are a strange woman if you put some Chinese balls and you do not shudder with pleasure like in the movies.

No, Mr. Gray, I’m sorry to disappoint you.

Despite the fact that since the famous book 50 Shades of Gray was published the sales of Chinese balls have skyrocketed in the countries where it has been bestsellers, at the moment, I do not know of any woman who wearing Chinese balls or a tampon feels any pleasure.

If you who are reading me feel pleasure or excitement when you wear Chinese balls, please share your testimony with us by leaving us a comment and, above all, congratulations! You are a privileged person.

Why don’t Chinese balls produce excitement when wearing them?

As simple as because the vagina lacks nerve endings, except in its outermost part, which, if they are placed, it is very exceptional that they produce pleasure.

I do not deny that you can add imagination (the most powerful aphrodisiac, by the way) and fantasy to the matter and that excitement arises from there and one thing leads to another, but se*xu*al pleasure does not provide wearing Chinese balls any more than wearing a tampon does. .

The second thing I want to highlight is that, although the sex toy business has found a vein by exploiting the “therapeutic” side of Chinese balls and some want to sell them to us as the panacea and the solution to all pelvic floor problems, the truth is be said, neither this nor any is a unique and valid solution for everyone.

Chinese balls aren’t the answer to all or any pelvic floor problems.

In fact, for those women with hypotonia (very weakened pelvic floor) it can be absolutely frustrating, and even deepen into postpartum depression, to find that they are not able to hold a single ball for even a minute.

In cases of hypertonia (excess tension) of the pelvic floor, the use of Chinese balls is generally contraindicated, and women with vaginismus may not even be able to get them inserted.

Each woman is different, each pelvic floor problem is unique and may have different causes and circumstances that require unique and different treatments, therefore, we always advise you to go to a specialist and trust him to find a correct diagnosis and your personalized treatment.

Having said that, let’s see what the operation of the Chinese balls consists of and why they are effective in strengthening the pelvic floor.

What are Chinese balls and what are they for?

The so-called Chinese balls, geisha balls or Ben Wa, which, despite their name, do not really have their origin in China, but in Japan, although there is no reliable evidence, they are a mechanism normally formed by one or two balls, joined by a cord, inside which is another smaller ball that collides with the walls of the ball that contains it when, when wearing them, the woman walks or is simply moving.

The Chinese balls are hollow and contain another smaller ball inside them, like a bell.

The balls made of glass, jade or other solid materials, are not Chinese balls, but vaginal weights.

There are women who perfectly notice how the ball vibrates inside the sphere that contains it when they move while wearing them.

Other women, thanks to the weakness of their pelvic floor muscles or because the balls are placed within the middle or upper third of the vagina, which lacks sensitivity, do not notice the vibration of the inner ball of the Chinese balls, but this it is very common and does not mean that they are not being effective.

How Chinese balls work

The vibration produced by the impact of the inner ball of the Chinese balls against the wall of the vagina causes an involuntary and continuous contraction of the muscles that surround Chinese balls, increasing blood circulation, lubrication and muscle tone.

It is not more effective to use two or more Chinese balls at the same time, it can even be annoying in women with a lower cervix.

The effectiveness of Chinese balls to improve muscle tone is based, therefore, as we have just explained, on two concepts:

  • A small ball inside that hits the walls of the vagina when we use them, which you can feel or not.
  • The movement, which we need to do, so that that ball moves and collides with the walls.

For the use of Chinese balls to be effective, it is essential to move (walk, walk, etc.) when wearing them, so that the ball inside it moves and collides against the walls of the vagina causing its involuntary contraction.

It will be useless to put on some Chinese balls and lie on the sofa or sit down to work in front of the computer.

The Difference between Chinese balls and weights or vaginal cones

This is a somewhat technical question and I have needed help from my expert comp Laura Rojas, here, but in summary and to understand us:

Chinese balls works the tone of the pelvic floor muscles

Muscle tone would be the slight involuntary and unconscious tension that a muscle has when at rest, while force would be the ability of that muscle to overcome a certain resistance by contracting voluntarily and consciously.

Thus, for example and more graphically, the neck has enough tension to keep the head upright without our being aware of it, while a bicep must voluntarily exert enough force to lift a weight of a certain size.

A person can be very strong and not very toned or vice versa.

Well, the same thing happens with the pelvic floor muscles. I can have tons of strength in those muscles once I contract them voluntarily, but once they are required by the body to perform an unconscious and involuntary  function they may not have the proper tone to perform that function correctly.

The weights or vaginal cones work the strength of the pelvic floor muscles

To understand this difference, I have not needed any more help from Laura because that is exactly what happened to me after two deliveries.

I have had to train the tonicity of my pelvic floor muscles because, although when I voluntarily contracted them I had a lot of strength in them, when I needed them to act involuntarily and reflexively, they did not do so due to lack of tonicity.

Thus, when I sneezed, coughed, or ran, my pelvic floor muscles weren’t tonic enough to unconsciously hold urine in the bladder and prevent it from leaking. In other words, he had stress incontinence.

When I do Kegel exercises I am consciously and voluntarily contracting my pelvic floor muscles, therefore I am training the strength of those muscles.

The same is true when using vaginal cones or weights, I voluntarily and consciously contract my pelvic floor muscles to prevent them from coming out.

However, when I carry Chinese balls, what is being trained is muscle tone because I am not performing any voluntary contraction.

The vibration of the ball that contains a Chinese ball inside is what is stimulating certain fibers of my muscles, increasing blood supply and therefore improving tone.

How to strengthen the pelvic floor with Chinese balls

If, in addition to wearing Chinese balls, I practice Kegel exercises or voluntary pelvic floor contractions, I will not only train the tone, but also the strength of these muscles.

I hope that with this little explanation we understand then what is the difference between the use of Chinese balls and the use of weights, solid balls that do not have another ball inside or vaginal cones.

Benefits of Chinese balls

It seems proven is that the continued use of Chinese balls by healthy adult women greatly helps:

  • Improve the tone of the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Increase blood supply.
  • Improve the natural lubrication of the vagina.

In this way, with its continued use over time, we will achieve a considerable improvement in the quality of se*x*ual relations.

Speaking clearly: longer and more intense orgasms and recovery of sexual sensitivity when, for example, we have lost it after a long or traumatic delivery with forceps, episiotomy, etc.

Likewise, a toned and strengthened pelvic floor will help prevent urinary incontinence and reduce the risk of prolapse in some cases.

What are the best Chinese pelvic floor balls

The best Chinese balls are those that best adapt to your body and your specific needs.

As we have discussed so far, in principle, any healthy adult woman with a minimum of force on her pelvic floor could use Chinese balls.

How to choose Chinese balls

But, what do I have to take into account to decide on some Chinese balls or others?

I, in particular, have based my decision on these characteristics: measurements, weight, number of balls in the pack and materials used in their manufacture.

For your ease, we have a careful selection of Chinese balls in the On-Ground online store.

Chinese balls measurements

The first thing that surprised me when I first saw Chinese balls was their “enormous” size.

They were two Chinese sex shop balls that would measure almost 40 mm and they seemed very large and very heavy to me. Then you realize that you can put them on without problem.

The “normal” measurement, the most common, is around 35 mm. although we can find smaller models designed for women who have not given birth or who find these smaller ones more comfortable.

In any case, the important thing is that the Chinese balls remain in place, do not come out of the vagina, so that their vibration is transmitted to the walls of the vagina.

Therefore, it is logical to think that it is better to start with a larger size and a lower weight.

Chinese balls weight

Despite what you may think a priori, it is better to start with a few Chinese balls of low weight that we can keep without problem inside the vagina and that allow us to continue with the therapy.

Using Chinese balls that are too heavy that come off easily will only get frustrated and abandon the training.

Also, as we have already seen, its effectiveness is not based on weight.

Number of chinese balls

As I insist from the beginning, the effectiveness of the Chinese balls is not in placing the more the better, but in being able to keep one inside the vagina at least so that its vibration involuntarily contracts the muscles that surround it.

Once the necessary muscle tone has been achieved to wear a Chinese ball in place, without voluntarily contracting, you can move on to another of smaller size, more weight or join two balls and carry them at the same time.

It is interesting that the manufacturer offers several balls of various weights within the pack since during this way you’ll start with one then combine several and adapt the size and weight used to improve and greater retention capacity that your muscles will progressively experience of the pelvic floor.

In the market there is a wide variety of brands that offer several balls in the same pack with different sizes and / or weights from 28 g. up to 100 g. or more.

Chinese Ball Materials

Being for such an intimate use, what less than worrying a little about what materials are being used in the manufacture of your Chinese balls.

Medical grade silicone or ABS / PC, used especially for its hypoallergenic nature, are gaining ground since they are a great guarantee of hygiene and that they will not cause irritation or dermatological alterations.

Try to avoid porous materials, plastic is, which can contain bacteria.

Pay attention to non-string cord material for the same reason.

On the other hand, it is very important to find out about the presence of phthalates (DEHP free) or any other toxic or irritating component among the manufacturing materials of our Chinese balls.

All the products that you have available in our online store have the European CE quality certificate that obliges manufacturers to pass strict safety and quality controls and to offer the customer a two-year guarantee.

Indications of the Chinese balls

In general, as we mentioned earlier, any adult, healthy woman with a minimum of strength in her pelvic floor muscles could use Chinese balls.

Chinese balls within the prevention of pelvic floor dysfunctions

As preventive therapy before the first symptoms of dysfunction (incontinence, prolapse, etc.) appear in healthy women who want to strengthen their pelvic floor because they are or are going to enter a risk group:

  • Before planning a pregnancy.
  • After one or more births, especially if they have been long, multiple and complex traumatic. Of course, once the quarantine is over.
  • Overweight or obese women.
  • In menopause to prevent the appearance of prolapses.
  • Adult women of any age who habitually practice hyperpressive or impact sports (aerobics, running, tennis, etc.).
  • Singers.
  • Chronic constipation.
  • Women who habitually carry weight.
  • Adjuvant treatment before and after genitourinary or pelvic surgery as long as the deadlines prescribed by our specialist are respected. Normally, you should wait about six weeks after pelvic surgery.

Chinese balls for incontinence and other pelvic floor dysfunctions

As therapy for the improvement of the following symptoms and provided that a specialist has been previously consulted:

  • Stress urinary incontinence.
  • Mixed urinary incontinence.
  • Strengthening of the pelvic floor after delivery, once the quarantine is over.
  • Treatment of sexual dysfunctions (lack of sensitivity, decreased intensity of orgasm) caused by weakness of the pelvic floor muscles.

Chinese balls during pregnancy

In general, no manufacturer that we know of recommends the use of Chinese balls during pregnancy.

Although you should know that if your pregnancy is not considered risky you can consult your gynecologist about the suitability of using them and, most likely, he will insist that you pay special attention to strict compliance with the hygiene and maintenance rules of your Chinese balls. .

Chinese balls postpartum

During quarantine and in the first weeks of postpartum recovery, the use of Chinese balls should be avoided.

We must wait until our gynecologist gives us a free pass to start using these devices.

Once the quarantine is over, if you notice that you have been left with an excessive vaginal opening, very frequent after childbirth, or a great weakness of the pelvic floor, it is best that you go to a specialist (consult our Directory of Professionals) to assess you and prescribe the best treatment for your case.

As we said before, Chinese balls are not the solution for everything, so sometimes trying to strengthen the pelvic floor after childbirth with Chinese balls can cause more frustration than anything else when verifying that they cannot be retained within the vagina.

In these cases, very often the use of vibrators that improve the proprioception of the pelvic floor is much more effective and, if we manage to reach orgasm, as we said in this other article on our blog, we will be doing one of the best exercises on the floor. pelvic: orgasm.

Chinese balls during menstruation

During menstruation, together with absorbent tampons, Chinese balls should not be used.

Honestly girls, does anyone want to put on some Chinese balls and do Kegel exercises while on your period?

Chinese balls in case of prolapse

In case you suspect that you have a prolapse or have already been diagnosed, as a general rule, the use of Chinese balls is not recommended.

But, as each woman and her circumstances are different and there are also different types and degrees of prolapse, the best thing, (sorry that we are so heavy !!) is to go to a pelvic floor specialist (consult our Directory of Professionals) to that you value and prescribe the best treatment for your case.

Normally, treating a prolapse involves many more aspects than just strengthening the muscles in a specific area: it involves improving posture, compensating for possible imbalances in the core, avoiding or reducing harmful or risky practices, etc. etc.

As we mentioned for cases of excessive vaginal opening, the use of vibrators that do not have to be retained inside the vagina is often more effective and also, if we manage to reach orgasm, we will be doing one of the best pelvic floor exercises: the orgasm.

Contraindications of Chinese balls

As we said at the beginning of this post, if there is something you should remember, it is that Chinese balls are not for everything or for all women.

Chinese balls are not beneficial for everyone and there are even cases in which they can be harmful, such as in cases of hypertonia of the pelvic floor, pain on penetration or vaginismus.

Ideally, you should always consult a specialist before use and, in general, they should be avoided if you find yourself in any of the following circumstances:

  • If you feel discomfort and pain when wearing them.
  • If you have a vaginal and / or urinary tract infection.
  • In sexual intercourse during penetration.
  • As a general rule, within six weeks after genitourinary or pelvic surgery.

Placing the Chinese balls

You can start by using a larger ball of little weight and continue with another ball of equal size but more weight, then two balls, others smaller and heavier, etc., until you exhaust the possibilities offered by the pack you have bought.

The Chinese ball should be inserted approximately in the site where a tampon would be placed, ensuring that the cord protrudes slightly from the vagina to facilitate its removal.

The use of a little water-based lubricant, never silicone-based, is recommended to make insertion more comfortable.

To facilitate insertion, you can also use the Intimina moisturizing gel, which is not exactly a lubricant, but a moisturizer that prevents them from being too slippery and not staying in place.

Once in place, it is essential to stand up and start walking and moving.

Gravity and your muscles will do all the work.

How long are Chinese balls used?

Normally, it starts with 10-15 minutes a day, if you can manage to keep them in place, to gradually increase until reaching two or three hours a day.

More is not necessary and may not be as beneficial.

Think that excess tone, hypertonia, is not good and yes, you can get stiff!

If you are not able to keep them in place, you can reattach them as many times as necessary or even use them lying down and try to contract the pelvic floor muscles to prevent them from coming out while pulling on the extraction cord as a way to start exercising your floor. pelvic.

Ideally, in cases of so much muscle weakness that it is impossible to keep a single ball in place, you should start with a Kegel exercise routine

Then, once you have become aware of the pelvic floor muscles and know how to locate and contract them independently, you can consider continuing with the use of Chinese balls as your muscles progressively acquire more strength and tone.

How to use Chinese balls

As I have tried to explain in the first part of this post, the benefits of using Chinese balls are achieved “only” by wearing them or, in the case of the less fortunate, “trying” to keep them in place.

Its mechanism, based on the vibration or shock of the small ball that they contain inside against the walls of the vagina, causes them and the muscles that surround it to increase their tonicity, lubrication and blood supply. With which, only by placing them and maintaining them while we are moving we will already be increasing the tone of our pelvic floor.

If, in addition to wearing them, we perform a Kegel exercise routine, such as the one illustrated in the photograph, we will not only be increasing the tone, but also the strength of our pelvic floor muscles:

  1. Contract and raise
  2. Keep the contraction
  3. Release the contraction
  4. Rest and relax

Effect of Chinese balls: When will I start to see results

In general, the pelvic floor muscles are quite gratifying and as soon as we begin to work them with some continuity, their benefits come very quickly.

As long as you are consistent in your routine of carrying your Chinese balls for 15-30 minutes a day, you should start to notice its benefits in less than a month.

Cleaning and maintenance of Chinese balls

Keep in mind that we are going to use Chinese balls in our vagina, so it is essential to maintain strict hygiene before and after each use.

Normally, for cleaning intimate devices such as Chinese balls, a little warm water and mild soap are enough before and after use.

For a deeper cleaning you can use a specific bactericidal sanitizer such as Intimina Sanitizing Spray, which not only removes dirt, but also bacteria.

Try to avoid the use of substances with alcohol, acetone or gasoline to clean the Chinese balls as they could alter their composition.

In any case, read carefully the recommendations that each manufacturer makes regarding their products.

Manufacturers often recommend that we keep them in a cloth bag to keep them away from dust and dirt.

With this, I think I have reviewed almost all the key points of the use and enjoyment of Chinese balls, but, as always, all comments, experiences, doubts, questions, etc. are welcome. that you want to share with us and that we will try to solve as best as possible.

Also, we remind you that all the information we offer has a mere informative character and in no case and under no circumstances is it intended to replace the advice of a health professional about the unique and particular physical condition of a certain person.
