for Better Sexual Health

Apparently, women around the world are claiming yoni eggs to be the next best thing for better sex and a stronger vagina — and they’re pretty serious about it.

So I did my research on everything about yoni eggs and the rituals involving it in my attempt to fully understand what they are and how they work. Long story short, I ended up slightly less confused but still skeptic about a yoni egg’s so-called “powers.” But if women are swearing by its benefits, who am I to rain on their parade?

If you’re curious as to what exactly yoni eggs are, here’s a quick guide to understanding them for whenever you are in need of sexual awakening!

Yoni Eggs aren’t sex toys

The word “yoni” translates to “sacred space” in Sanskrit which is a euphemism for the female genitalia. Yoni Eggs are an ancient, sacred tool meant for spiritual transformation. They are traditionally made of jade and are inserted inside the vagina for the purpose of stimulating the sensitive points in the vaginal canal.

(Okay, they do sound like sex toys.)

 

But you use them to have better sex

One of the reasons why women wear yoni eggs is to exercise their vaginal muscles, which helps you reach more intense orgasms. It also makes you much more sensitive down there so penetration will feel ten times better.

 

There are other benefits too

There are other benefits to using yoni eggs that aren’t necessarily for the purpose of sex. They also strengthen the pelvic floor, help ease childbirth, reduce PMS, menstrual cramps and menstrual duration, and help overcome sexual trauma.

 

There are different eggs for different “spiritual experiences”

Yoni eggs are said to give off a spiritual power depending on the type of gemstone used. The common ones are the Jade which is used for healing, Rose Quartz which channels the energy of love, and Black Obsidian which aids in releasing trauma from the body.
