Lila here~ One of my recent blogs sparked a
lively conversation on Facebook about ben wa balls. For those of you who may only have a vague
idea what they are, ben wa balls are small, marble-sized balls usually made of
metal with a small weight inside them.
The pair I have, however, are made of jade. As my friend Oceana says, “Jade is a mineral whose inherent properties
are abundance, prosperity, and good health. Wearing jade in your first
and second chakra areas will enhance your ability to bring these good
vibrations into your life.” She sells
them on her website www.goddessoceana.com
in case you’re interested.
Ben wa balls are used to strengthen the
muscles in the vagina and the pelvic floor.
Stronger vaginal muscles not only help increase sexual pleasure, but
they also help with mild incontinence, which is a common problem after
childbirth (sorry if that’s TMI).
Tantrikas use them to help build chi, or life force energy, in the
body. Ben wa balls offer a subtle
pleasure rather than an intense orgasm; walking around with them in the vagina
for an hour can build the chi to a point that when you do have sex, it’s more
of a full body experience than one centrally located in the genitals. The balls can be left in during intercourse,
although some women experience pain if the man’s penis causes the balls to
press against her cervix.
