Are kegel balls a health device or bedroom toy?
My health article was unjustly not published because HubPages thinks kegels balls are a bedroom device, and not an aid for a health condition. I was told it was a bedroom toy and my hub was explicit. In what world is a woman's health issue lewd and obscene? I am truly offended.
To the point of this topic. Since HubPages will not publish my incredibly helpful article can Google still crawl it to pick to up?
I appreciate all of your help and feedback on this folks! I really do. My head is spinning in circles, and can't wrap around this one.

Kegal balls (like Benwa) are usually considered sex toys and that's probably why your Hub got popped. If your Hub is not published, Google will not see it at all.
How is it a sex toy when they are used to treat incontinence, and prevent bladder and uterine prolapse do to an unfit vagina? They are recommended by gynecologists for these reasons.
I'm sure you're right (don't know much about it), but I do know they're also marketed as sex toys. A trip to any adult toy store or website will turn them up.
Then the brains at Google need to take a break from the sex store shopping and do more research into historical alternative medicine.
Google is the reason that triggers this kind of thing. They have strict policies on what types of pages they want to show their ads. Certain words or phrases trigger flags on HP and they'll sometimes automatically unpublish.
I have a Hub about hate groups that has no ads on it (this was done my HP, not me, btw) for the exact same reason. If Google finds content they don't support, they could suspend HP's ads and then nobody makes any money here.
Okay Georgie, but my Hub on "Causes and Cures for Red and Itchy Vaginal Bumps" doesn't seem to bother them with over 400 views a day. What's the difference? They are both womens' health issues! It's offensive to women that this is not allowed.
Did your Hub on itchy bumps dig into something that can be considered a sex toy? I'm a woman and I'm not offended. HP isn't my own, private website and therefore it has a right to dictate what content I can publish.
I should be ashamed because HP doesn't want content that could be counter to their agreement with Google? Also, NEVER tell someone else what they should feel. That's seriously overstepping your rights.
Obviously you haven't caught on what kegal balls are used for. When you get older and your vagina is loose maybe you'll understand and then you'll think back and say, "oh, I wish I could read that article"!
I'm 43, and don't have that particular problem. Just because you're angry that HP popped your little Hub doesn't give you a right to be a jerk.
Oi. If that's funny, I'd hate to see you being a jerk. I'm actually on your side, but you need to understand how HP and it's ads work. I notice there are no ads on this question which may mean it might get deleted.
I'm sure they will. God forbid talk about kegel balls on HubPages, and then dare dispute it with a senior member of the community. Say, is my article still posted somewhere on hubpages? I noticed a link for it on my "Red and Itchy Vag Bumps" hub.
Not that I can see. If it says "unpublished" then its a no-go. Go here and talk to the moderators to see if you can make changes to get it published http://hubpages.com/help-wizard/
I had a gynecologist suggest I use these after surgery for uterine cancer. And to be very frank, my cancer came back. If the powers that be here are so caught up in censoring "bedroom" material, they need to wash their dirty-minded brains. Lewd is as lewd thinks.
K balls (Ben Wa Balls) have been used for CENTURIES as a masturbat*on toy. CENTURIES!! The use of them for strengthening k muscles alone is a rather new method in comparison. While k balls are good for your health so is masturbati*n and sex, but we can't write about them. Google and HP have rules that have to be followed. We don't have to agree with them, but if we don't plan on starting our own website for these articles, we have to follow the rules. I can't even write about surviving *ncest, or child abuse awareness hubs. These are just rules we have to follow even if they suck!
My answer has been edited to fit rules of HP after receiving this warning that kept me from submitting it. "Some of the words in the answer do not meet our editorial policy."
Please do not confuse kegel balls with ben wa balls. They're very different. Kegel balls and exercisers exercise the kegels, and were made for this purpose. Whereas ben wa balls are a sexual aid.
There almost identical. I'm not arguing against you but would a blow up doll still be a blow up doll if it was called a companion doll, boxed by a different distributor, and was used as therapy for dogs with separation anxiety?
They are very different. They have different shapes and different functions.
I know what they are, I have some, they look identical to any seen an adult store, minus the fancy package and nice colors. They can also be used in the same way as Ben Wa Balls. I'm not denying your points,I'm seeing it from Hp side. Safe than sorry

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

If we find that our new site for health is falling drastically, wouldn't it be a good idea if we scrapped it and gave it back just as hubpages again? I keep reading that google only likes professional health articles. Actually that annoys me because who better to know, understand and experience the...

I have a question that I hope someone from HP will answer. I have an article that has been up for about 5 years. It has been edited by HP Pro. Drives LOTS of traffic to Paired Life (as in one of your biggest articles). Who was the moderator who thought it was a good idea to turn off my advertising?...

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

I have been experimenting with Google to find new techniques to drive more search traffic and I found one that is quite silly but has doubled my traffic within about a week of updating my hub.Here it is: THE RATING CAPSULEIt's really quite silly, but I added a rating capsule to the bottom of my...
