My Mother’s Ben Wah Balls

What are those? | submitted by Amara Charles Back

I often return from visiting my Mom swirling from the differences in our lives. This time, brimming with benevolent compassion and feeling rather sexy after teaching several Quodoushkas, I was perfectly poised to find the bridges of heart-to-heart connection between us.

Within the first 5 minutes, as I’m unpacking my bags in Florida, I open a box of Jade Eggs.

What are those? she asks.

Out of respect, I could have easily made up something. But there was something about the way she asked – it was like she already knew what they were. Sure enough, before I could even say, she blurts out:

They go inside your ‘pupick.’ (our polite family word for vagina.)

Yep, that’s exactly what they are Mom. They go inside and they feel really nice.

I have this thing with my mother. I don’t go into details unless she asks. This time she does, so I venture a little further;

I show women how to become stronger and juicier.

Sensing this is a bit too much information, I shift to,

How do you know what they are?

As if she’d been using them for 70 years she delightfully boasts of her new-found sexual education,

They talk all about Ben Wah balls in Fifty Shades of Grey. I figured that’s what they were.

My sister chimes in and says, You should write an article on Fifty Shades.

Next, my sister-in-law can’t wait to tell me she has read all three books, which she says, Are really cheesy, but I can’t put them down.

Ok, I confess, I am one of several people on the planet who has not read Fifty Shades of Grey. Apparently, these tugs from my family, and possibly the sky-rocketing Jade Egg sales on my website are trying to tell me something. I used to consider my teachings using Jade Eggs somewhat esoteric, but who knew?

I’ve been wondering why these books are now more popular than Harry Potter.

Have you read Fifty Shades? Is it worth the read?

p.s. Thanks Mom. You’ve got balls. And I love you.

Quehestemehah. You Dance in My Heart In beauty, Amara Charles

A great article Amara. I haven’t read the book either, although I have been writing one myself. The jade egg exercises are great, I highly recommend them to all women.

I would love to go to the Shakti Queen retreat. Will you ever have one in Arizona?
