Homemade/Cheaply Bought Kegel Weights

Hello all!

I've been doing kegels for a while (not quite as regularly as I should), and I feel like I need a little more resistance. I'm interested in something like Betty Dodson's kegel barbells (http://bettydodson.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=30&Category_Code=ST), but they're quite expensive.

So I was wondering if any of you lovely people had cheaper suggestions (maybe some innocuous household item?) that I could use to strengthen the pc muscles instead.

Thanks so much!

I'm pretty sure it is inserted in the vagina and adds additional resistance while doing kegels. Similar I guess to the added beneift of lifting weights instead of just lifting an arm....

Have you thought about Ben-Wa balls? I got my set for 20$ Canadian and they are just two gold colored balls a little bigger than a small gumball. They work great and you can leave them in because they are invisible once in!

I would recommend the Fun Factory Smartballs, which are similar to ben-wa balls except they are connected together and have a string like a tampon so they're easy to get out. I got them from drugstore.com and they're probably available from other online retailers. They are bigger than most ben-wa balls, though. And one other caveat would be that they're making me taste/smell kinda funny - see my earlier post titled "Toys and how they make you taste" - but other than that I like 'em!
