Stainless Steel Kegel Bar Review

I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted a review here. To be perfectly honest, my stats took a serious hit after my other blog was flagged by blogspot, and it’s difficult to drum up products for testing when you’re not getting the number of visitors retailers expect. If you’re really into the reviews here, please help a girl out and tell your friends, or Stumble/Digg my page. No, I am not begging for traffic, but I’ve had some feedback from people who miss the reviews, and this is the issue I’ve been facing.
On to more lascivious things!
A good friend of mine over at Extreme Restraints was generous enough to send me a stainless steel kegel bar, which is designed to strengthen your vaginal muscles. Why would you want to do that? Well, it improves your muscle control and can make your vagina feel tighter. When you ‘clamp down’ during sex, the sensation will be more intense. Also, if you have any issue with bladder incontinence (meaning you sometimes pee a little when you laugh, sneeze, or cough) it will certainly help. Don’t be embarrassed, it happens to many women, particularly if you’ve given birth.
This particular product is a weighted bar with three differently sized balls, one on each end and one in the middle of the shaft. The idea is that you begin with the largest ball, and eventually work up to the largest. There are several ways to use the kegel bar. I began by standing with my feet a little wider than shoulder width apart (please don’t stand over hardwood or tile or any other sort of hard surface, in case the bar falls out) and then inserted the largest ball into my pussy, with the remainder of the bar outside of it. Alternatively you could insert the entire bar, with the largest ball last. Then you clench the muscles you use to hold or stop the flow of urine, let go of the bar, and hold for 5-10 seconds. Hold onto the bar and relax your muscles for a few moment, and then repeat. Much like lifting weights, repetitions are the idea. Just putting the bar in and holding it for half an hour will not accomplish as much as alternating relaxing and clenching. Do at least 12 repetitions, or more if you feel so enclined.
When you feel like it’s too easy using the largest ball, try holding in the medium one. You can begin with the larger and medium ball inside of your vagina, and the smallest one on the outside, and then flip it over eventually. The idea is to work up to having just the smallest ball inside of your pussy, and the rest on the outside.
If you use your bar at least once a day, you should begin to feel a difference after two weeks. When I used mine consistently, Jack noticed that my muscles were stronger/tighter after about three weeks, and I wasn’t using mine every day.
I like that this bar is easily sanitized. A little warm water and antibacterial soap before and after each use and you’re set. You can also boil it in a pot of water (please NEVER leave toys unattended when you’re sanitizing them in this way).
Another attractive feature is that this toy is fantastic for anal play. You can heat it up in warm water before use, or if you’re feeling cruel, throw it in the fridge for an hour before you impale your victim. I’d only recommend this particular toy for more experienced anal enthusiasts. Also, please never insert the entire bar into the anus. Be sure to leave at least one of the balls on the outside of the body.
Both Jack and I can enjoy this toy, and I have to give it props for actually doing what it’s supposed to do.
