I saw a quote recently that read, “People keep saying I should grow some balls. Why? Testicles are delicate and easily hurt. What they really need is to grow a vagina. Vaginas are built to take a pounding.”
Since menopause, I’ve developed a sneeze and leak problem. Yes, I’ve bought panty liners. But there has to be an exercise to fix this problem. I tried kegels. I got really good at squeezing that plastic vaginal insert. But along comes a sneeze and I still leak.
Off to the web. Where I learned that ben wa balls, which I’d heard of as a sex toy that didn’t look like much fun, are supposed to strengthen the necessary muscles to prevent sneeze-and-leak. The idea is to put these things in my vagina, and get strong enough to keep them in while hurrying up and down stairs 4 times. Beginners just have to stand still with their feet hip-width apart. And even experienced users are advised to keep underpants on at all times.
So, I ordered a pair. They come in a fancy velvet-covered jewelry box with a piece of foam rubber inside which has little holes cut out of it to hold the little metal balls. This item costs $15 plus shipping. And it’s just a pair of 3/4" spherical stainless steel ball bearings.
For about $18, Amazon sells 10 of them. Stainless Steel 440C Ball, Grade 100, 3/4" Diameter (Pack of 10)
Okay, I can’t use 10 of them, but I could give them to friends and female family members.
So far, I’ve managed to stand still and keep them in. I even made it walking at a somewhat-slow speed down and up my stairs once. I tried for twice, but one of the balls fell out. Supposedly anybody can master this in 6 weeks. 5 weeks and 6 days to go. This is an experiment. Balls for women are tough.
