Ball of Fame Exhibit Honors Ben Wa Balls


Retail sales of Ben-Wa-style balls surpassed sales of golf balls in 2012 thanks to their steamy depiction in the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey. To honor this shift in the culture’s attention from outdoor sports to indoor sports, Babeland opened a “Ball of Fame” to house the growing collection.

Golf ball sales were up 3% last year* in the US. By comparison, sales of the erotic balls rose by 1800% last year. Says Babeland co-founder Rachel Venning, “If the 65 million readers of Fifty Shades of Grey got turned on by the famous sex ball scene, it’s no surprise they’re teeing up in the bedroom instead of on the green.”
