In terms of working principle, the current Kegel balls on the market can be roughly divided into three categories:
- Passive balls
- Electric balls
- Active balls
Passive ball is the most traditional type of Kegel ball, usually a set of two balls, each ball has a small metal ball wrapped in rubber. When a person is walking, running or other activities, these small ball will bounce and impact on the ball will be generated that will stimulate the muscle contraction to achieve the effect of exercise.
This is the working principle of the most traditional vaginal ball. The power comes from the user. Therefore, to use this kind of vaginal ball, you must "move". It is useless to lie down or sit.
As the name suggest electric ball generate electricity from the battery driving the motor to generate vibrations, causing muscle contraction. Compared with the passive ball, the electric vaginal ball can also complete the exercise when the person is "not moving", such as sitting still, reading a book, or watching TV. Electric balls usually have a built-in sensor to sense the force of the muscles to clamp the Kegel balls, and then automatically adjust the vibration amplitude.
On the surface, the electric ball looks like a vibrating egg, but the vibration strength is generally very weak, which will not cause discomfort and arouse wild desires.
It is generally small in size, but not light in weight, and it is solid and does not vibrate. It is necessary for its users to actively control the muscles of their private parts to achieve the purpose of exercise. It is a bit similar to the "Jade Egg Gong" in ancient legends. Women put the appropriate size of jade into the body, adjust and control the position of the jade in the body through muscle contraction, and then exercise the pelvic floor muscles. There is no brand recommendation under this one. You can search for "Jade Egg Gong" directly from online.
Recommended Brands of Kegel ball
At present, the most famous brand on the market are the Lelo Beads, also known as the Luna ball which are introduced along with other series of brand product by a Swedish company. There are two styles of Luna balls, one is passive Kegel balls i.e. Luna Beads and the other is electric Kegel balls i.e. Luna Smart Bead.
Luna Beads has a set of 4 small balls, which can be matched with 6 different combinations, suitable for different stages and gradual exercises. Users are advised to start exercise with 1 ball first, and then gradually increase according to the progress. Generally, the entire exercise process takes about 4 months.
The use of two balls of different quality in combination reduces the difficulty of getting started, makes the whole process easier to control, and facilitates the user. But the downside is that cleaning is a little troublesome, and the combination ball is fragile. If the ball falls to the ground and breaks, there is no separate ball on sale.
Luna Smart Bead
The Luna Smart Bead is slightly flat in appearance, a bit like a small banana, and its vibration is very weak and does not arouse desire at all. The characteristic of this product is that it is very smartly configured with automatic evaluation system. The system has built-in 5 levels of vibration mode. Each exercise lasts for 5 minutes. At the end, it will evaluate the current usage and automatically set the vibration before the next exercise mode. During exercise, the more pressure Luna Smart Bead feels, the greater the vibration intensity will be on the next round.
The advantage is that it does not need to be used with activities like Luna Beads, and you can enjoy the process of slowly tightening while lying in bed. The disadvantage is that the vibration intensity is uncontrollable and the exercise intensity cannot be adjusted freely. The duration of the exercise is also rigid, only 5 minutes. If you want to increase the exercise, it is not convenient to take it in and take it out.
