Dr. Laura Berman teams up with California Exotics to bring you this Intimacy Accessory, designed to help strengthen your pelvic floor. Kegels are when you clench your vaginal muscles and release them. The best way to describe how to do them, is to just think about stopping the flow of urine, and squeezing the muscles down there. Every woman can do this. One can do them anywhere, anytime, and nobody knows that you're doing them. Being a practiced Kegel-doer, I was excited, and a bit amused, to see Isis in my box of new toys. Having a quirky sense of humor, as I was reading the box, and description of this item, I thought, "A pussy dumbbell!" Which, is essentially what it is, without the weights. Made of seemless Lucite, which is a clear plastic, it resembles a bulbous bowtie. The idea is to slide this item up inside your vagina, and see if you can hold it in by using your vaginal muscles. There is no retrieval ring, cord, or strap, but, the premise is to have your muscles hold it in, and then push it out. You can fully submerse this item in warm soapy water, for easy cleaning. It even comes with a lilac netted nylon pouch. Dabbing a bit of silicone lube on Isis, it slid up inside very easily. The instructions tell you that you can use Isis laying down, or standing up. The idea is to keep Isis INSIDE with the use of your vaginal muscles. Just sitting and doing Kegel exercises is A LOT different than actually trying to HOLD something up inside using the same muscles. I was able to squeeze it only 5 times before it slid out. I lay down and did some squeezing for more practice. But, all in all, I was impressed with how my muscles felt afterwards. I definitely knew that they'd had a workout. I recommend this Intimate Accessory to all women. I've had many women actually ASK me, "how EXACTLY does one do Kegels?" With the use of this item, women will no longer have to ASK, they will find out exactly how to do their Kegels.
