Yoni eggs: everything you need to know before taking the plunge
The yoni egg comes from Taoism, a pillar of Chinese philosophy where sexuality and pleasure are sacred. This small semi-precious stone egg (also called jade egg) symbolizes fertility and creative power. And yoni designates in Sanskrit the sex of the woman. Placed in the vagina, it improves the tone of the perineum and allows you to be fully connected to your femininity. Having become a trend in the West, it is still to be used with caution despite its virtues and its somewhat magical aura. Know, among other things, that you should not wear your egg during your period (but rather menstrual panties to put your "yoni" to rest).
Yoni eggs: a toned perineum
In ancient times, it was reserved for high-ranking women to sexually satisfy the Emperor. Like geisha balls (also used in China but this time by courtesans), the yoni egg is intended to tone the perineum. Placed in the vagina, it helps the woman to become aware of her perineal muscles, and to practice loose tights more easily than "empty". Exercises necessary for menopause or after childbirth , to avoid urinary leakage, among other things. Yoni eggs are also used to increase the pleasure in man-woman sex. First because they sensitize the tissues of the vagina and stimulate the vestibular gland triggering natural lubrication. Then, because a muscular perineum facilitates vaginal contractions, giving the woman control in the embrace of her partner's penis.
Activate your sacred femininity
The jade egg therefore has physiological virtues. But not only. Originally it also has an energetic and sacred dimension. It is supposed to stimulate the first two chakras: the root chakra, source of life, and the sacral chakra, seat of Kundalini and powerful sexual energy. In this way, we (re)connect to our femininity. It is also made of jade, which in lithotherapy gives it tranquilizing properties, and beneficial for the genital area. It is also found in rose quartz, a stone associated with the heart chakra. But if you are not sensitive to this type of spirituality, you can welcome the benefits of the yoni egg rationally. In other words, use it to awaken your libido!
My egg, instructions for use
Are you ready to get started? Now let's talk size. In other words, are you rather small, medium or tall? The largest egg measures 3.5 cm, don't panic. It's up to you to see what will be the most comfortable, knowing that a small one will be more difficult to feel and tighten in a standing position but will work your perineum more. Then you can choose the stone (its color and its effect).

On the insertion side, it's as simple as with a tampon, but the material may surprise you. It is better to first heat it in your hands, place it lying down with a little lubricant. And gently.
Warnings and Dangers
A yoni egg must be worn punctually and for short periods of time (and of course never during sexual intercourse). Indeed, the pelvic floor is not made to be permanently contracted. A perineum that is too muscular can cause pain during intercourse and…difficulty having a bowel movement! Forget vaginal weightlifting. Above all, the slightest pain should alert you, because prolonged wear can lead to an imbalance in the hormonal flora (often due to jade, a porous stone that can cause bacterial vaginosis). Or downright toxic shock syndrome. So be careful and boost your femininity without putting yourself in danger!
