A History of Ben Wa Balls
Ben Wa Balls are known to have been used since the year 500 A.D. in Japan. The balls were made of metal or ivory and were at first inserted into the female in order to increase pleasure for the male during intercourse. It didn´t take Japanese women long to figure out that the Ben Wa Balls or Rin No Tama ¨tinkling bells¨ could be used in order to induce an orgasm.
Women in ancient Asia from Thailand to China to Japan used the subtle clanking vibrations to achieve the big O or for foreplay. The balls were soon attached by a silk thread or chain so that removal from the female organ became easier.
One of the first ¨western¨ encounters of Ben Wa Balls was made by Ralph Fitch a famous English traveller who was one of the firsts to explore Mesopotamia and India. He was often consulted during the founding of the East India company. About 12 years after Ralph Fitch encountered Ben Wa Balls in the 16th Century an Italian exploring Thailand discovered men using Ben Wa Balls to lengthen the male organ.
Do I suggest Ben Wa Balls for this use? Absolutely not, it sounds excruciatingly painful. But there you have it Ben Wa Balls have an incredible history and are possibly not only the world´s first vibrator but also the first organ enlarger!
What Exactly Are Ben Wa Balls?
Ben Wa Balls are tiny metal or plastic balls that are hollow on the inside. A small ball is often times placed inside, the rolling of the interior ball creates a small continuos vibration. The subtle continuos vibration has been known to bring an earth shattering orgasm. Some Women will feel nothing at all. This is totally dependent on the sensitivity of an individuals V. I personally feel that those who are not as into high powered vibrators and more into tantric intercourse will have an extremely pleasurable experience with the ben wa balls.
What Are Kegel Exercises?
Kegel Exercises strengthen the P.C. muscle a.k.a. the Pubococcygeus muscle. Which helps prevent unwanted urination. As many of you know as you grow into old age you have a tendency to leak urine whenever you laugh or cough too loudly. This is true for not only women but also men. Doing Kegel Exercises helps strengthen the pelvic floor, produce a tigher V and ultimately stop unwanted urination. If don´t know what your P.C muscle is it´s the one between your V or p and your butthole. By strengthening the pelvic floor both men and women are able to enjoy better intimacy.
How to Use Ben Wa Balls?
Insert the ben wa balls into your V, this can be done with or without lubrication. The ben wa balls should be placed in the V one at a time. In order to get a tighter V and pelvic floor most of you would think you´d have to do some extreme flexing manuever. This is why ben wa balls are so great. You don´t have to do anything! Just by keeping the ben wa balls inside of you, you´ll be able to strengthen the V´s walls. Keep in mind that if the ben wa balls are too heavy you may want to go to a larger size or even to plastic balls. The larger the ben wa balls are the easier it is to hold them inside your V. Conversely, the smaller the ben wa balls are the harder it will be to hold them and thus the tighter your V will be.
So hold the ben wa balls in your V for 20 or so minutes and work your way up to a time you feel comfortable. It isn´t unusual to hold them for hours. ( a word of caution, many people forget about them long enoough to make a run to the dry cleaners, grocery store or run other errands). You don´t want the ben wa balls to fall out during this time as that would be rather embarrassing so don´t forget to take them out if you´re going for a run, going to the store, or going to do other errands.
Ben Wa Balls are easy to clean and because of their generally smooth, hard surface, they can be cleaned with soap and water. However, some ben wa balls have strings and other objects protruding from them, in this case definitely use an antiseptic sex toy spray. These cost anywhere from $10-$15 and can be used to clean toys for a few months. Ben wa balls compared to other toys are easy to maintain, clean, and use.
