Beginner's Guide to Kegel Exercisers
Kegel exercisers are small, weighted balls which can be inserted into the vagina for stimulation and training at the same time. They exercise the pelvic floor muscles (vaginal muscles) which leads to a healthier posture, a tighter vagina and more intense orgasms. An orgasm is essentially a contraction of muscles, so the stronger the muscles, the stronger the orgasm. So kegel exercisers are both - a workout and a pleasure stimulating toy!
Why You Should Use One
Strengthening of the pelvic muscles in the vagina is important for every woman's health and sexual wellbeing - whether you want to regain strength and 'tightness' post childbirth or you're looking to improve your sexual performance and pleasure. Some benefits of training your pelvic floor muscles are increasing the vaginal sensitivity (hello intense orgasms!), increased vaginal tightness and rhythmic control over the vaginal muscles during sex (your partner will love you for this!), controlling the bladder and helping with childbirth both before and after.
How to Use a Kegel Exerciser
All of these wonderful benefits and so simple to use! If you’re a beginner, opt for a kegel exerciser with single weights and then graduate to those with more weights.
1. Generously apply a water-based lubricant and insert the kegel exerciser into the vagina, just like you would insert a tampon or a menstrual cup. Make sure that the cord remains outside your body so that you can easily remove them once you’re done! If you’re finding it hard to insert them, try lifting one leg or lying down.
2. For beginners, begin with holding them in for 15 minutes. You can go about your normal everyday activities while you're wearing them, as the training itself is not challenging - it pretty much automatically happens, because holding the balls inside is like a reflex and trains your pelvic floor muscles without you even feeling it. As you progress, increase the time based on your comfort level.
3. Remove the toy by pulling on the cord. Clean the kegel exerciser before and after every use.
