The vagina is extremely durable. The fact that it can pass a watermelon-sized object (aka, a baby) and still retain its shape is impressive all on its own. However strong it is, though, the best kegel balls can help make it even stronger for a myriad of reasons — whether for better orgasms during sex, improved bladder control, or your own comfort levels.
Kegel exercises are subtle movements where you contract and relax certain muscles in the vagina. These movements strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which are responsible for supporting your internal reproductive organs. While anyone can do kegels (even men), they're especially great for women who feel a loss of muscle strength after childbirth, leak urine after sneezing or laughing, still feel the need to urinate right after emptying their bladder, or are looking to achieve stronger orgasms during sex.
The best news? There are tons of tools you can use to help you, and most of them are super discreet. Put them in, go about your day, and no one will have any idea. They also come in all different shapes, sizes, and designs (from crystal quartz eggs to computerized smart kegels that let your vagina play games on your phone). These nine great options are sure to fit your skill level, lifestyle, and vaginal needs.
1. Kinetic Cueing Mechanisms That Remind You To Flex
The IntiFit premium kegel exercise kit was designed by a certified OBGYN and physical therapist. Each shape has a kinetic cueing mechanism inside that subtly vibrates, reminding you to flex your muscles during activity. The single weight is for beginners while the double weight is for more advanced users, and both are hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and velvety soft.
2. Six Progressive Weights Ensure That You Always Have A Comfortable Challenge
These Intimate Rose kegel exercise weights are BPA-free, non-porous, hypoallergenic, and made from safe medical grade materials. Six progressive weights ensure that you always have a comfortable challenge, and the elongated shape provides simple and effective strengthening that reviewers are noticing after only a few days.
3. These Smart Kegel Balls That "Vibrate" When You Move
Made from body-safe silicone, the OMOteam kegel ball set uses movement-based stainless steel weights inside to stimulate your muscles all day with subtle vibrations. The vagina naturally tightens around them, creating strength and improving sensitivity for better orgasms. The single ball can be used for beginners, while the two-bead design is ideal for intermediate users — plus they're easy to take out thanks to the built-in tabs, and they don't require any batteries to work.
4. These All-Natural Stones So You Can Progress From Beginner To Advanced
If you're looking to move from beginner to advanced using just one set, these Yoni Egg kegel balls are a wonderful resource. Each set comes with three natural stones (nephrite jade, rose quartz, and black obsidian) in a storage pouch, and each one is sized and weighed for a safe progression. They're also drilled at the narrow end so you can add a string — unwaxed, unflavored dental floss included — and people are absolutely loving how gorgeous they are.
5. This Stainless Steel Option Is Discreet, Yet Effective
This set of two Secretly Yours kegel Ben Wa balls are made from safe hypoallergenic medical grade stainless steel. They're super discreet, and come in a cute carrying bag with a zipper and clasp.
6. This Interactive Tracker And Exerciser That Syncs To Your Smart Phone
Simply place the Elvie kegel exerciser And tracker inside, connect to the app, and receive instant biofeedback that tracks your strength and progress. You can play fun interactive games that help you exercise your pelvic floor, and it's waterproof, rechargeable, and made from medical grade silicone.
7. This Stone Made From Actual Crystal Quartz
The JIC Gem Yoni is made with pure rose quartz crystal, making it one of the most beautiful and unique kegel tools on the market. It's crafted by gemstone professionals. It comes in a luxurious velvet bag too!
8. These Cute Cherry-Shaped Kegels With Different Weights
Made with 100 percent premium grade silicone, this Shibari kegel balls kit is totally waterproof, skin-friendly, and can be used with water-based lubricants. Each kegel has a separate weight that progresses along with you, and they've got silicone strings for easy removal.
9. This Automatic Toner That Does Most Of The Work For You
The K-fit kegel toner takes all of the hard work out of kegels with 11 pre-set programs that automatically exercises the pelvic floor. All you have to do is insert the ergonomically designed probe into the vagina, clip the handset onto your belt, and go about your day.
