6 Reasons NOT to Buy a Kegel Exercise Device — Kegel Queen



I'm the Kegel Queen I'm a registered nurse and my name is Alice Adams in today's video blog you'll find out six reasons not to buy a kegel exercise device in this post you'll find out why Kegel products are not the correct way to do Kegel exercises for your pelvic floor muscles and how Kegel weights and other Kegel devices can do more harm than good there are Kegel exercises Kegel eggs Benoit balls vaginal cones electrical stimulation devices biofeedback devices Kegel weights for your vagina Kegel devices come in every shape size and style imaginable there are plastic Kegel devices metal Kegel devices inflatable Kegel devices Kegel devices made of jade Kegel devices that live deliver electrical current to your most sensitive body parts Kegel devices with wires and electronic displays Kegel devices with Springs gears and levers some of them look like medical equipment some of them look like sex toys and some of them look like torture devices the aliens want to use on you once they get you back to the mothership what do all these Kegel exercise devices have in common there are waste of your time and money your pelvic floor muscle workout is easier more effective and way more fun when you go natural without any devices at all here's why there are six reasons reason number one Kegel devices train your muscles to do the wrong things Healthe effective Kegel exercises train your muscles to contract and release relaxing the pelvic floor muscles is just as important as contracting them a healthy muscle that works well in feels good is a muscle that is relaxed and supple not tight and clenched but many Kegel devices train your pelvic floor muscles to clench all devices in the vaginal weights or Kegel weights category create this problem Kegel eggs physician prescribed vaginal cones and other weight based devices are all used the same way you put it in your vagina and try to hold it in while the pull of gravity tries to make it fall out while you're trying to hold that Kegel weight in your vagina what are your muscles doing they're tightening and clenching for 10 or 20 minutes at a time here's what happens to tight clenched vaginal muscles they hurt they can make sex intensely painful even worse they won't function as well because while you do the big clench those muscles aren't getting the blood supply they need and because tight clenched muscles simply aren't as strong as stretchy relaxed muscles don't buy Kegel weights and if you already have some either find a way to repurpose them maybe as paper weights or throw them away reason number two Kegel devices make your muscles stupid we'll talk about problems with other types of devices in reasons 3 through 6 but here's one more huge problem with Kegel weights they don't help you gain muscle control that's why the research shows that kegels done without a device work better than kegels done with weights let's imagine that you're in a public place they had the grocery store having a conversation with someone you like you want to impress this person maybe it's the boss from a job you just applied for suddenly you need to sneeze doing a good strong Kegel as you sneeze will help keep your undies drei by stopping the sneeze pee now think which muscles will respond more quickly and effectively when you've got to do that that Kegel to stop this knees pee is it muscles that have been practicing contracting and releasing on cue or is it muscles that have been practicing nothing but one long hard squeeze around a Kegel wait and here's the fun part the pelvic floor muscles are directly attached to your vagina and clitoris I'm going to show you up this model so check it out this is the pelvic floor this bowl of muscle here's the pelvis here's the vagina here's the clitoris and you see these muscles there right there they're attached they're part of your sexual anatomy when you get good at pelvic floor muscle control you open the door for way more pleasure in bed for you and your partner if you're not building muscle control while you do kegels you are missing out big-time details are beyond the scope of this post but here this once you find out what better pelvic floor muscle control can do for you and your partner in bed you'll never go back reason number three not to use a Kegel device Kegel devices insist on resistance but resistance is BS a lot of people out there namely the ones who want to sell you a Kegel device will tell you that Kegel exercises must be done against resistance they say that if you're not squeezing some object inside your vagina especially the one they're trying to sell you which might look like a dildo or a garlic press or a shoehorn they'll tell you if you're not using that not squeezing something kegels won't work why do the Kegel device people insist on this it's because it's what dr. Arnold Kegel used to say dr. Kegel did some very important work in helping people discover the awesome results pelvic floor exercise can provide Thank You Arnold Kegel but dr. Kegel released his landmark research paper in 1948 and he's been dead since 1981 since then scores of brilliant modern researchers most of them women have shown us how to do far easier faster more effective kegels with no devices at all the very best Kegel techniques are based on the very best up-to-date research studies in any dinosaur who insists on resistance devices is either misinformed or simply trying to make a buck or both reason number four Kegel devices are a pain in the butt because you need privacy kegels with a device you have to have your pants off no kegels on your lunch break at work no kegels when your kids might walk in no kegels anywhere except at home behind a closed door alone kegels without a device your pants are on to do kegels right you will need to give kegels your full attention no driving please but you can do them in your parked car during a break at your desk at work in your living room while the kids are playing nearby at the gym during your warm down on a park bench during a break in your daily walk anywhere you can take a few minutes to focus on doing the exercise which way is simpler easier more likely to actually make its way into your schedule it's a no-brainer keep your pants on reason number five you will not like explaining your Kegel device to your kids or to airport security agents let's say you do manage a Kegel device exercise session behind the closed door of your bedroom then you need to wash the device and store it somewhere mom what's that thing in the bathroom mom what's this I found in your drawer what do you do with this thing again even more fun would be answering questions like that in the airport security line when you're trying to catch a plane well sir it's for my vagina reason number six not to buy and use a Kegel device you will give up on kegels if you use a Kegel device when you do kegels the easy effective way without a device it's like brushing your teeth a few minutes a day that you hardly think about but using a Kegel device is a recipe for failure for two reasons first if you're just getting started and you don't have much pelvic floor muscle strength and control you'll fail right away with most Kegel devices you can't hold the weights in or you can't squeeze the lever thingy so you give up the other big reason to give up on Kegel devices is the inconvenience this is what kegels look like with a device get the Kegel device out of its storage place take off your pants use the device put your pants back on wash the device dry the device put it back into its storage place compare that to doing kegels the easy way without a device which looks like this you simply do your kegels women in 19 countries are doing the Kegel queen program doing kegels the easy way with no devices at all to get more women's health information that could change your life click the link below and I'll see you there

  1. I have joy on kehel. It pairs with my phone and shows the strength and duration of my kegels. It's awesome and this lady is weird. I feel like her husband hates his life.

  2. Seriously??? Airport security?? Let me tell you, I opened my luggage once, when I got to my destination, and found a card that said TSA has examined your luggage. You know what was in there? I won't be specific, but about 6 different sex toys. And it was VERY obvious what they were. Was I humiliated? Angry? NO! I laughed! You seem to be a bit repressed. Also, I don't think kegel devices work like you say they do. 20 minutes of clenching??? Nothing I have read has said to clench more than a few seconds at a time. I think you're trying to scare people, and I'll do my own research, thank you.

  3. I can't with her crooked ass lips. And take that shit off your head.

  4. This hoe is a lying

  5. "Physician prescribed" they're bad.
    I'm going to go with YOUR the crazy one. Where's your medical license? Oh yeah, that Ba., you really showed those MDs

  6. This is obviously satire

  7. I just bought kegel balls. So, I’ll check back in a few months… if I can run and not PISS myself like I always do running, as a fit woman after using this device.
    I’ll check back in!

  8. 1- You look very unprofessional in your video presentation, including your "name." If you want people to take you seriously, a professional appearance might help. 2- Talking down to adult women as if they're in kindergarten isn't a positive way to send your message out. 3- Knowing what you're talking about is important if you want people to believe what you're trying to convince them. I purchased my first device, and using it just feels like I have a tampon inside, except for the times I feel the tumbler inside and it prompts me to contract suddenly, exercising my muscles by contracting and relaxing them during the day. I'm not sitting there straining all day to hold it in. 4- Exaggerating common situations (airport, kids, pain to use, etc.) as a means to deter the product is weak. Airport officials are adults and see ranges of devices/materials people need and use on a daily basis, from personal hygiene products to medical devices. Should I also not fly if I wear a catheter because of the embarassment I'll face? Or should I expect TSA to be adults about the medical matter (and you're a nurse?)? Also, the products come in a discreet container/storage bag, so if by chance your daughter happens to find it and ask, you can use the opportunity to teach her what might happen to her changing body later in life. The way you present everything just sounds like a pathetic infomercial that tries to convince people that they have huge impossible problems that only their way can solve. I also don't believe it for a minute that you're a nurse.

  9. Reverse Kegels

  10. Yeah, this sounds like a load of crap to me. I personally would rather explain why I'm carrying around a kegel device than why I have to change my clothes because I sneezed. So use a kegel device and do regular ones in between if you want.

  11. you put all the egg in one busket i want to know about the super kegel please explain for pelvic floor

    KegelQueen

  12. When I was thinking about conceiving, I thought, "So how about them kegel exercises? Will this be another habit I have to create on top of my morning meditation practice and weekly workout routine?" (Yes.) I experienced incontinence during my second trimester and doing basic kegel exercises on my own even for a minute a day, made a huge difference.

    Aside from using free apps to remind me to do them, I also do them in the morning when I meditate. I find that being 100% present with the tension and release of those muscles help me know just how much I can tense up (this will help me avoid tearing on b-day).

    I wish I could be more consistent with the exercises, but I’m not (what’s 3 minutes a day?). And for that reason, I can’t fathom buying an expensive device to do something that I already have in me. If I can’t do 3 minutes a day, there’s no way that I’m going to spend an extra minute cleaning the device. Besides, all the amazing women around me who’ve given birth have all touted, “Do your Kegels, you’ll be glad that you did!” None of them used a device for it. Kegel trainers are gimmicks and yet, I gotta admire Gwyneth for finding a gullible audience to sell her expensive Jade egg to.

  13. Whose doing kegels!

  14. Alum Crystals is the best

  15. This lady didn't research before she spoke… and the monitone voice she uses is horrid. All based on her own assumptions.

  16. you put all exercise in one basket men doesnt have vagina give detail different male than woman

  17. Your nuts woman! Can't think of anything else to say😂😂😂😂😂

  18. Would kegal balls not help benefit those who have no sense of control over their muscles down there?

  19. Doing kegels has overstressed my muscles before. My whole hip area was tight and lower back was stressed out. What is important is doing counter exercises such as Yin yoga. The reason for the downvote is number 5. Spreading shame about anything surrounding your own sexual health and pleasure is a negative and devaluing message. NO please!

  20. Hey. I like this woman. She's informative and just a little bit funny, tongue in cheek.

  21. Sigourney Weaver's sister cousin?

  22. I couldn’t even watch it. It was too boring and the attempted “know it all” voice made me want to jam a kegel weight down her throat.

  23. This https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301211511003952 study, and this https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0029784402021609 study seemed to show that there was no significant difference in bladder control between women who excercised the "natural" way versus with a device. It wasn't about sexual performance, but I can't imagine why the purpose you need the muscles for would matter. Maybe it's more a matter of preference?

  24. Sorry. But that is bullshit…. I'm having the BEST orgasms since I'm using Love- and Ben-Wa's…even vaginal orgasms and I thought I would never be able to have them. Invest some money and get the good stuff girls. It's worth it.

  25. As a kinesiologist I am very confused about this video. I plan to go in to physical therapy and even specialize in pelvic floor PT. I didn’t make it more than three minutes because she said muscle contraction restricts blood flow to muscles. Which is the opposite of what happens in exercise. She also mentioned strengthening those muscles makes sex more painful. But doing bicep curls doesn’t make your elbow constantly flexed. It’s improves neural connection to those muscles, coordination, endurance, and strength. Likewise, so would Kegel exercises… I’m just very confused here

  27. Thank you — good info!

    For those curious about why resistance isn’t needed for pelvic floor muscle training in the same way as (for instance) the biceps, it’s a matter of physiological function. The biceps brachii’s daily job is to move the arm bones; it exerts a fairly high amount of force against gravity for large ranges of motion (concentric, isometric, and eccentric contractions). The pelvic floor muscles’ daily job is to hold up the pelvic organs against the pull of gravity (mild concentric/isometric tonus) and regulate sphincter action.

    Long story short: they’re different muscles with very different tasks. They don’t need identical paradigms of exercise.

  28. Fake dr

  29. Who cares about air port security !

  30. I am not even remotely convinced and the arguments do not make sense. We're talking about muscle contraction AND RELAXATION using weights of a few GRAMS, not shoving a dumbbell up yourself. That absolutely requires muscle control. No-one's suggesting that anyone should walk around with those inserted all day. It's a short, gentle exercise session. And seriously, based on your website, "The Kegel Queen Program has reached over 1,382 women in 19 countries around the world," with less than 1400 women in 19 countries worldwide following your advice, that's not an impressive track record. This just makes me think of some fanatic deeply opposed to something innocuous, but having absolutely no experience and limited knowledge about what she's arguing against. What studies have you conducted to support your claims? Do you have any peer-reviewed research published?

  31. I'm a Registered Nurse and I suggest: Respect the time of viewers and speed it up! Why would you use the tone and speech rhythm of a kindergarten teacher? Your target audience are adults, busy adults. By the time you began your point #2, at the 4:00 minute mark, I was OUT! =/ No way should it take 4 mins. to get through point #1. And the toy tiarra….Bad idea. The name "Kegal Queen"…another bad idea. Present yourself as the Professional you claim to be and display Substance and a little dignity. Take this video down and do it right.

  32. Seriously questioning the fact that you’re an actual nurse.

  33. THANK YOU!I really appreciate your great advice!☆

  34. What about the Kegel8 ???? I bought one and don't know how to use it 😩😩😩

  35. Informative and definitely a thought to talk about.

  36. This is absolute crap. My pelvic floor physical therapist does Kegel exercises with me along with biofeedback in all of our sessions. If it were going to do more harm than good for me, she wouldn’t be incorporating it into my recovery program. I’m trusting someone with actual training on this subject over the “Kegel Queen Nurse”.

  37. I am a post op trans woman. I am planning on getting a set of Ben Wa balls at some point. I am mainly interested in using it for sexual pleasure. I am not an expert on Kagels. But some of what your saying smells like BS. I am not aware of anyone except you telling people that using a device involves squeezing for 20 minutes. The way you work any muscle is to contract and release. Also, you mention research but don't provide any citations. If the research backs up your claim you could have mentioned at least one study in the video. As for point number 5. If your kids find your device, so what? Should kids not learn about female sexuality? If you are concerned about kids finding stuff, do a better job of storing it. Store it under lock and key if need be.

  38. 🌈🦋👸🏻Leave the Tiara 👸🏻 ON.It cheers us up,And can we please show the world that we can be pretty and still f**king smart.I vote yes.👩🏻‍💻💚 Great video.

  39. I just saw the Apex M commercial on tv, which brought me to YouTube and then saw your video. But i actually have the interstim, will that be an issue for my pelvic floor/incontinence?

  40. Whoa! I almost fell asleep! Time to move on…

  41. Dr.Kegal cured 90% of his female patiences by teaching them to clench and release with a DEVICE he inserted inside them unlike today when unaided kegals most women tend to fail I rather listen to a urologist and gynecologist vs a RN since this sort of thing is their specialty I don't expect to build biceps without weights so why squeeze air and expect to get the same results ?

  42. I bought a NatraTone really cheap on sale to contract and release my muscles on just to make sure I’m doing it right as I get started. Really helpful 🙂

  43. Following your advice, thank you. I was going to by kegel devices, but what you say makes sense! Eva
