Women around the world use Ben Wa Balls and Kegel Balls for a variety of different reasons. They are used for intensifying sensitivity in the vagina for improved sex, they are used for kegel exercising, they are used for stopping bladder leakage after childbirth. Some (including us, the reviewers) use them for multiple purposes, and we think that every woman in the world would benefit from a pair of the best Ben Wa Balls.
Ben Wa Balls were mostly used solely for medical reasons until they were famously featured in Fifty Shades Darker. Ever since Christian planted some Ben Wa Balls into Anastasia to pleasure her during a party full of the rich and the sexy, young women have been intrigued by the idea of them. Ben Wa Balls, Kegel Balls, love balls, jiggle balls or orgasm balls – they have many names but they all work the same. They tighten and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which is beneficial for the health of women in very many different ways. The best Ben Wa Balls will have such an effect on your pelvic muscles that even after a few short days of using them you will see a world of difference. How you want to use these powerful new muscles is up to you, but improved sensitivity in the vagina was definitely on top of our list of “reasons to get Ben Wa Balls”.
After careful critical analysis and research of the best Ben Wa Balls, we had found the best of the best, and I am writing this article to share our findings with you. We have bought both horribly designed and multiple fantastic Ben Wa Balls, but the Lelo Luna Beads still came out on top as the best Ben Wa Balls, in our opinion. If you would like to find out more about how we picked the best, check out How we picked & tested.
Best Ben Wa Balls for pleasure
Lelo Luna Beads
Without a doubt, these are still the best Ben Wa Balls on the market when it comes to getting full enjoyment out of the balls. They come in multiple different sizes and weights, making them perfect for beginners and intermediates alike. They are strong, durable, and they come with vibrations, which feel fantastic. Get these if you want both pelvic muscle training and intense pleasure from your Ben Wa Balls. They come in a set of two, one being smaller and lighter, the other larger and heavier.
The Lelo Luna Beads!
Both of us agree that when it comes to performance, these were the absolute best Ben Wa Balls we tested, and everyone we talked to seemed to agree on this without any questions. They have been the bestselling Ben Wa Balls for many years now for many good reasons.
Firstly, the design on the Lelo Luna is fantastic. These Ben Wa Balls look sexy and the silicone material is just as durable as stainless steel. Neither of us have ever had any signs of wear and tear on these pleasure beads. Lelo always takes great care to ensure that their products never break down, under any circumstances. The Lelo Luna Beads are no exception.
Secondly, we loved the fact that we got four Ben Wa Balls in total for the price. The pink pair is lighter and smaller, and the blue pair heavier and bigger. Therefore, as you get some experience and training in your pelvic muscles, you will not have to buy bigger Ben Wa Balls, you can just move onto the blue pair, which you already own!
Thirdly, and most importantly, they feel incredible. I never knew that I wanted vibrations in my Ben Wa Balls until I got my hands on the Lelo Luna Beads. The vibrations are powerful, but at the same time so quiet that no one will ever hear them, even when you are sitting in a quiet restaurant with these pleasure beads vibrating inside you.
They are absolutely amazing. If we had to choose one pair of Ben Wa Balls to have for the rest of our lives, it would no doubt be the Lelo Luna Beads. Although they are relatively pricey, they give excellent value for the money and any woman will find enjoyment in them.
Best budget Ben Wa Balls for pleasure
Lovehoney BASICS Silver Jiggle Balls
A decent and cheap pair of Ben Wa Balls to get you a first real glimpse into what Ben Wa Balls are like. If you are unsure whether you will like the sensation of pleasure beads, then starting with a cheap pair like these is a good idea. We can only recommend them to absolute beginners though.
Compared to the best Ben Wa Balls, the Lelo Luna Beads, these can’t compare. However, they are cheap, reliable and they achieve their vaginal strength training purpose well, as they do train the pelvic muscles with each session. However, I prefer other Jiggle Balls like the Lelo Luna Beads for multiple reasons.
Firstly, these Ben Wa Balls don’t vibrate. This may not seem like a big deal, but the vibrations actually make the overall pleasure bead experience much more enjoyable. Non-vibrating Kegel Balls are very useful for older women who want to train their pelvic muscles without needing the “sex toy” aspect of it, but as we are younger women we would have loved some vibrations on the balls.
Secondly, they are made from plastic instead of silicone. Silicone is always the best material to go with on sex toys, as it’s non-porous and can be easily cleaned. Plastic, on the other hand, leaves some dirt inside and after some months of use you might find some lingering smell on them.
Thirdly, while the price on these is cheap, you only get one pair of Ben Wa Balls. They both weigh 28g and when you have used them for a while you will definitely feel that you want to upgrade into something a little heavier. And, unlike the Lelo Luna Beads, which are sold in two pairs, you will need to invest in a new pair to progress further. For this reason, we always prefer Kegel Ball sets, not individual balls.
All things considered, these are good for a specific purpose – to introduce you to the feelings of Ben Wa Balls in general. They are cheap, effective and simple to use, and they will be a great start to your vagina strengthening exercises. Don’t expect anything groundbreaking or innovative, though.
Alternative pick for advanced users
Fifty Shades of Grey Inner Goddess Silver Pleasure Balls
Stainless Steel Ben Wa Balls approved by the author of Fifty Shades of Grey himself, E. L. James! They are heavy and they are made of solid metal, meaning that they are not meant for beginners. For those of you who have strong vaginas, however, they might just be the best Ben Wa Balls to take you to the next level of intense sexual pleasure!
The Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure Balls is an excellent upgrade to your collection if you already own something like the Lelo Luna Beads. They are some real heavy metal though, so be prepared! The heaviness of these Ben Wa Balls should not be underestimated. Compared to the lighter models on this list, you will really feel it in when they are inside you, even if you don’t turn on the vibrations. They are just massive! Heavy Ben Wa Balls are excellent for pelvic muscle strengthening, but going too heavy on your first time will not be comfortable for you.
Don’t get me wrong, though. They feel fantastic and the extra weight adds to the naughty pleasure, especially if you are using them while walking outside. When you push them against your G-spot and turn on the vibrations, you will be left with knee-shaking orgasms, guaranteed. We also loved the smooth and solid metal finish, as it looks sexy and high-quality.
The only complaint I can make is that as they are made of stainless steel, making them cold. They quickly warm up due to the warm temperature of your body, but the insertion process can be a bit uncomfortable at times because of how cold they are. We can’t really call this a flaw in design though, as this happens with all sex toys made of steel.
Tracey Cox Supersex Kegel Toner Set
These are one of the best Ben Wa Balls when it comes to sexy design. We loved the charcoal black color and the silicone material. It feels silky smooth to the touch and when the balls are inserted, they feel very cozy. As two Ben Wa Balls with separate sizes are included in the set, both beginners and intermediates will be able to use these Ben Wa Balls. However, it’s pricey considering that it has no vibrating motor.
These are another pair of high-quality Ben Wa Balls, from one of our favorite sex toy makers – Tracey Cox!
We found that these were some of the most comfortable Ben Wa Balls for use in public, as they are light, smooth and relatively small. As they come in two sizes, they are a good fit for both beginners and experienced users, but those with strong pelvic muscles might find that they are too light and small. If you have some kegel exercise experience already, you might be better off with the large version of the Lelo Luna Beads. Not only will they be a better fit, but they also vibrate! We love vibrations!
Best Kegel Balls for training pelvic muscles
Intimate Rose Kegel Exercise Weights
Premium Kegel Balls Set with six single balls total. It’s perfect, as you can start from the very lightest weight, and as you get stronger you can move onto the higher weights. The weights start at 25 g and end at 125 g, which is the broadest range you can find anywhere. All of the Kegel Balls are made of medical-grade silicone. They are very easy and comfortable to use, and they are fantastic for building pelvic strength. The set is pricier than most others on this list, but the value you get is excellent.
The Intimate Rose Kegel Exercise Weights were built with only one mission in mind – to build the kegel muscles. They are mostly used by women who are not looking to use Kegel Balls as sex toys, but rather as medical tools for building pelvic strength. There are many medical benefits to having pelvic floor muscles, but we are not doctors so we will not cover this. They are excellent at achieving this specific mission, though, and you will notice changes in your pelvic strength after just a few days of use.
These are the absolute best Kegel Balls for you if you have any problems with leakage. All too often women with weak pelvic muscles start having leaking problems, especially after childbirth. These are the best Kegel weights for fixing this problem. They have a very simple design, they are easy to clean and the wide range of weights in the set will make sure that no matter what strength level you are at, you will find a comfortable starting points from these weights. Unless you have really weak pelvic muscles, you might not even find any use for the 25 g Kegel Ball, but having the option is always a plus.
Many physical therapists are recommending this set in particular to their patients, and we can definitely recommend it also from personal experience. I have even given one set of these to my grandmother, who was telling me the other day that when she sneezes or coughs, she often has leaking problems. I am happy to say that these problems became solved after two weeks of using this set. It’s truly a fantastic product!
Best Budget Kegel Balls for training pelvic muscles
TOTI Kegel Balls Kit
These cheap Kegel Balls come in a set of two, with one single ball and a two-ball kegel included in the set. They are effective at building the pelvic muscles, but the instructions included are not easy to understand and the range of weights will not fit everyone. They are also not as durable as the first two picks. But for someone on a very tight budget, they are a decent choice.
These cheap Kegel Balls perform well at training the pelvic floor muscles, but if you already have strong pelvic muscles, you might find that even the larger two-ball kegel balls will be too lightweight and small for you, making the Kegel Balls basically useless. Therefore, I would recommend these as the best Kegel Balls only to women who are on a budget and have very weak pelvic floor muscles. Most women, even after childbirth and at old age, will find the small Kegel ball so small and lightweight that it does not train anything at all. They are a good starting point, but not as effective as the first two picks.
Only get these Kegel Balls if you have very weak pelvic muscles and you don’t want to spend the money on the Intimate Rose.
InJoy Silicone Kegel Balls
High-quality kegel balls made of medical-grade silicone and created with one aim – strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. For the price, you get a set of two. One is a very lightweight single ball and the other a heavy two-ball. They are very easy to use, they are hygienic and, and they are very effective at training the pelvic floor muscles. It’s an excellent product overall, but the range of Kegel weights in the set is not as large as on the best pick, the Intimate Rose.
Unlike the Lelo Luna Beads, these silicone kegel balls were designed purely for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. In order to achieve the best kegel training with these Kegel Balls, the manufacturers made it in a set of two which you get for the price – one small single ball for the first few weeks of using it, and another two-ball kegel for continuing your training. The Kegel Balls are very unintimidating and easy to insert. They are also very comfortable, and we found that using them while walking around in public was super easy (although it gives no sexual “satisfaction, so to say”.
The single Kegel ball is small and lightweight, and anyone will be comfortable in using it. It’s not intimidating in any way and insertion is as easy as could be, thanks to the silicone finish. Even total newcomers will find it a good starting point.
The other Kegel balls which come included in the package are slightly larger in diameter and while the balls weigh the same (40 g), the weight totals 80 g for the two balls. These Kegel Balls are excellent for continuing your training of the pelvic floor muscles, once you have gotten used to the sensations of the first single ball.
These are the second best Kegel Balls for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. However, if you want your Kegel Balls to give you enjoyment in addition to strengthening, then you should go with vibrating Kegel Balls, something like the Lelo Luna Beads.

Why you should trust us
This article was written by two women completely dedicated to reviewing sex toys. We have both spent hundreds of hours critically reviewing numerous different sex toys, and each of these hours was spent on hard, in-depth analysis. It’s not always easy to rank sex toys, but our passion and our fascination with different sex toys have kept us going.
Our research and analysis always involved dozens of different people. We have developed a large network of sex toy reviewers and they all always have to add to the discussion, whether it be about dildos or Ben Wa Balls. In addition to consulting our friends who are sex toy reviewers, we researched online articles, sex toy forums, Amazon reviews, and every other bit of information source we could get our hands on.
And of course, most importantly, we tested thirteen Ben Wa Balls by ourselves. We measured everything we could – the sensations, the effect on the vaginal muscles, the size, the price… we even ranked them by sexiness! As far as reviewing Ben Wa balls goes, I don’t think we could have done anything more to create a more comprehensive review than we already did.
Who should get Ben Wa Balls or Kegel Balls

How to choose the best Ben Wa Balls and the best Kegel Balls
Size: Usually, in the case of sex toys, small toys are good for beginners and big ones are good for experienced users. However, in the case of Ben Wa Balls, it’s not as simple as that. To decide on a size, you should remember which size tampons you use. Do you use small tampons, or medium, large tampons? Depending on this, you should also choose the size of you Ben Wa Balls.
- If you use small size tampons, go with Ben Wa Balls around 32 mm or smaller in diameter.
- If you use medium size tampons, go with Ben Wa Balls around 32-35 mm in diameter
- If you use large tampons, you will probably be comfortable with Ben Wa Balls larger than 35 mm in diameter
Weight: Choosing the correct weight is crucial to finding any enjoyment in your Ben Wa Balls. If you overestimate your strength and go with something massive from the start, you will NOT find any pleasure, only un-comfortability. Here are some key points to consider when choosing the weight of your Ben Wa Balls:
- Adjustable weights are your friend! This is also why I chose the Luna Beads as the best Ben Wa Balls
- With very heavy Ben Wa Balls (such as stainless steel Ben Wa Balls), the strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles is also greatly stronger
- Unless you have experience with pelvic floor muscle training, start with something lightweight, and as you get experience, you can start moving up in weights
- You would not pick up a 4oo-pound barbell and start doing squats on your very first visit to the gym, would you? It’s the same with Kegel Balls, you need training before you can move to the higher weights
Design: There are numerous different Ben Wa Balls designs out there. Their basic idea is the same, but they are all good for different experience level and training levels. Some designs are excellent for women with already developed and trained pelvic floor muscles, and others are meant for beginners who are trying to get started with kegel exercises. Below I have listed some of the main types of Ben Wa Balls you will see in shops:
- Single Ball vs Two Ball Designs: Single ball Ben Wa Balls are perfect for beginners. They will not feel uncomfortable at all and they are excellent for finding out whether Ben Wa Balls are right for you at all. Two Ball designs are fantastic as well, don’t get me wrong, but unless you are confident in your abilities you might be better off starting with a single ball.
- Adjustable weight Ben Wa Balls: These are my favorite types of Ben Wa Balls and they are perfect for beginners in general. Having the ability to adjust the weight of the Ben Wa Balls allows you to start off with a light weight, and then as you start to get more experience and strength in your pelvic muscles, you can move into the higher weights. Having the ability to choose the weight of the Ben Wa Balls is also very useful if you plan to use them outside your house. It’s always better to go with a lighter weight when enjoying the great outside together with the best Kegel Balls.
- Stainless Steel Ben Wa Balls: While stainless steel Ben Wa Balls and Kegel Balls might feel fantastic, they are definitely not for absolute beginners. We both have lots of experience with different vaginal toys, both small and large, but even we found some of the heavier Ben Wa Balls quite a challenge for us. In the bedroom, we could handle them, but as soon as we started walking around, we realized that we looked like we had something very wrong with us (good luck with any discretion in this case!)
How we picked & tested
In order to find the truly best Ben Wa balls, we took all of the most popular and well rated Ben Wa Balls and best Jiggle Balls models, and then started comparing them against one another. We started by carefully selecting thirteen Ben Wa Balls, which were well rated, popular, and in general very promising products. We did not test any Ben Wa Balls which were obviously terrible even before holding them in our hands. And believe me, we saw some horrible designs out there!
After testing and analyzing all of the Ben Wa Balls and Jiggle Balls we bought we started comparing our findings with the opinions of other reviewers, sex toy forums, and various different articles. In doing this, we had compiled an in-depth review and ranking of all of the best Ben Wa Balls balls in the world. We found out the best, we found out the worst, and we found the most powerful!
Despite all of this research and analysis, it was sometimes difficult to rank a certain kind of Ben Wa Ball higher or lower than another, so in the end, we just went with our gut feeling (and mostly our vaginal feeling) and we trusted our own judgment and experiences above all else.
This is the most comprehensive and detailed ranking of Ben Wa Balls ever made, so we hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!
