I hate those types of analogies though because they always show deformation in 2D. It took me awhile before I could visualize 3D deformation thanks to years of the "ball spinning on a rubber sheet" analogy. If you like the ball bearing thing though, download Gravilux on your phone. Really cool gravity/vector field visualizer.
