A yoni egg is a multi-purpose device meant for internal vaginal use. Consisting of an egg-shaped polished gem, this object can be used as a Kegel weight, sex toy and crystal therapy tool. It originated in Ancient China, where imperial concubines used it in order to maintain their vitality and sexual prowess.
Nowadays, the stone is very popular among women of all ages and yoga practitioners. Regular yoni egg practice goes hand in hand with Kegel exercises. When inserted into the vagina, the gem supposedly makes the pelvic muscles contract and helps the vaginal wall maintain elasticity.
It is thought to benefit those experiencing urinary incontinence, PMS, menopause, aid postpartum recovery, and improve sexual awareness. Yoni egg practitioners have reported that using a yoni egg leads to longer and better orgasms. The stone is also used in the practice of tantra.
Depending on the gem the yoni egg is sculpted from, it can have different qualities.
