Smart Kegel exerciser can hurt women as much as it helps

If men can have a fitness device for their nether regions, women certainly can, too. Minna Life has released the kGoal, a $149 "smart Kegel exerciser" that helps you work your pelvic floor muscles (read: the vaginal area) in order to both improve your sexual performance and fight disorders like incontinence. It provides real-time feedback through sound, touch and visuals, and you'll know you're on the right track through a companion smartphone app that gauges your progress. If all goes well, kGoal should take the mystery out of Kegels -- you'll build strong muscles by developing a proper technique and setting achievable goals.

That's a big "if," mind you. Minna describes the kGoal as "comfortable" thanks to an air pillow that lets you adjust the device to fit your anatomy. However, that's not what The Verge's Arielle Duhaime-Ross experienced in an early hands-on -- she says her vagina was constantly "on fire" despite following advice. Minna is quick to note that this isn't necessarily a one-size-fits-all product (the company is targeting a broad cross-section of women), but you might want to hold out for a future version if you're not willing to experiment with technology down there.
