LELO’S LUNA BEADS ($50.00)
They look kind of cute, paired up in twos, t they’re not maracas or dumbells for elves, or any other type of mini sized implements. They are LUNA™ Beads by LELO –more commonly called “kegal balls.” The Advice Sisters have reviewed these types of adult sexual aids before and while Lelo gives them the upscale moniker “Pleasure Beads” (and they can and do deliver discreet pleasure), LUNA™ Beads also have a higher purpose: to help you have longer, stronger orgasms (when worn regularly, over time).
In case you missed our previous review of kegel balls, here are the basic facts you should know: The Kegel muscle is the muscle that is local along the pelvic floor, also known by its official name, the pubococcygeneus (PC) muscle. If you’ve ever had to urinate really badly, it’s the PC muscle that you clench to “hold it in” when there isn’t a bathroom around. It is that clenching that is the basis of the kegel exercises… a repeated set of contractions that help that muscle get stronger. Strengthening this muscle can help you with bladder issues (ever have a bit of a “leak” when you laugh too hard or have a frequent urge to urinate, for example)? and this has other medical benefits. More than that, it can help your sex life. so it’s worth your time to try them. And, by the way, both women and men can use to kegel exercises to help strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. *Men can also benefit from Kegel balls. The balls are inserted into the rectum (lubricant will be necessary). Their movement stimulates the prostate, which can trigger an erection in most men. Some say that if you are a man with erectile dysfunction you may be able to restore erectile function with kegel exercise. We are not doctors and we can’t comment on this, but if you like the sensation, go for it!
Sure, Kegel balls are serious business, but they can also provide pleasure (for some, they can provide orgasms and in others just pleasant, orgasmic feelings). The clenching exercises of kegels are almost effortless. You can feel them if you jump up and down, run around, or sometimes even when you’re in a car or feeling the vibrations in a bus or subway Once they are inserted, you can also masturbate with them inside you, or you can just keep them inserted internally almost as long as you like as long as they are comfortable. Using the Luna Beads internally while walking, running or swimming, creates discreet kinetic vibrations that stimulate the pelvic floor muscles to contract. You can use the beads individually or use the medical-grade silicone girdle to hold two beads at a time. This allows you to find the combination that suits you best and allows you to build up resistance as the PC muscles strengthen.
Kegel balls come in various sizes and weights, they are usually in couples and trios, and strung on a cord. The LELO Luna Beads are paired on a silicone harness, and available in two sizes – Classic and Mini (*classic generally preferred by women who have experienced childbirth) – they respond to the wearer’s every movement, subtly vibrating when worn internally. To use them, thoroughly clean them and insert them one at a time. Then, just squeeze your pelvic muscles and holding that tension for three seconds, and then relaxing for three seconds. Repeat this exercise 10 to 15 times per session, over three to four sessions a day. You can do this any time and anywhere you want as long as you want and you can find plenty of variations but the main point is clenching and releasing. You may or may not feel anything initially, the more you move around the more likely you are to get the sensation of the Luna Beads. But you can get the benefit of the kegal exercise just sitting at your desk….no one is ever going to know that you’re doing something good for your love life while you’re on the phone, typing that email, etc. How long you keep them in is up to you.
Note: Use the restroom before placing the balls in the vagina. *essential, or you’ll feel uncomfortable. Use lube if you need to. Pull the cord gently to remove the balls. Always clean them thoroughly after use. Do NOT share them.
