What are Yoni Eggs?


The Yoni Egg: Best kept secret of China’s Royal Palace

Yoni egg, jade egg, or love egg – are names for a beautiful semiprecious stone carved into an egg shape and polished to be worn inside the vagina.

It is estimated that women have been practicing with stone eggs for over 5,000 years. Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China used eggs carved out of jade to access sexual power, awaken sensuality and maintain amazing health into their old age. Up until recently, this ancient, secret practice was only available to members of the royal family, and to select Taoist practitioners.

“Yoni” is a Sanskrit word for the female genitalia that means “sacred space.” Its symbol has been worshiped in Eastern cultures since ancient times for bestowing life, creativity and love. We will be using the term “yoni” to bring appreciation and acknowledgment – so often lacking in Western culture – to the creative power this magical part of the female body holds.

Below are a few of many benefits that you can experience if you practice with a Yoni Egg regularly:

The Yoni Egg isn’t just an exquisite accessory that will add charm to your night stand. It isn’t just a great tool for kegel exercises, or a way to maintain health, have better orgasms and more fulfilling sex. The Yoni Egg is an ancient, sacred tool for spiritual transformation.

  • Increase libido and awaken your sensuality.
  • Increase natural lubrication at any age!
  • Develop an intimate and loving relationship with your yoni, your entire body, and ultimately yourself.
  • Increase sensitivity during intercourse.
  • Become much more orgasmic.
  • Some moms use yoni eggs to assist in after birth recovery.
  • Gain control over the vaginal muscles and rock your lover’s world.
  • Enhance your Tantra, Qigong, and yoga practice.
  • Some women that use yoni eggs report a reduction of PMS symptoms, menstrual cramps and the duration of the menses.
  • Improve overall health and well-being.

The Yoni Egg isn’t just an exquisite accessory that will add charm to your nightstand. It isn’t just a great tool for kegel exercises or a way to maintain health and well being, have better orgasms and more fulfilling sex. The Yoni Egg is an ancient, sacred tool for spiritual transformation. Each crystal has unique properties that can affect your body in many different ways.

Let’s Take a Deeper Look at Why Practicing with a Yoni Egg Produces such Profound Effects.

The pelvic floor is a large group of muscles that form a “basket” or a diaphragm which supports all of our internal organs. In eastern practices like Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, and belly dancing, there is a big emphasis put on pelvic floor exercises. It is said that life force, prana, or chi can leak through the pelvic floor and be lost if those muscles are weak. This life force energy is essential for maintaining high energy levels and longevity.

In the modern world of desk jobs, we sit still for long periods of time, and at best work out at the gym a few times a week. Most of us pretty much never engage the pelvic floor muscles. This leads to reproductive health problems, painful menses, loss of sensitivity and sensation, and overall low energy levels. In fact, the main culprit of reproductive illness is lack of blood flow to this area of the body. Plus, most of us are in our heads 24/7, and are largely disconnected from our bodies…especially the parts below the belt.

Heal Your Body and Awaken Sensuality.

Many women in our culture have trouble experiencing orgasms. The main reason for this is a disconnection from the body, and especially from “down there.” Due to trauma, negative emotions stored in the tissue, growing up in a sexually oppressive culture, perceived or real abandonment, or simple lack of exercise and attention, many women’s genitals become numb, weak and dry. The sexual organs of most women really need some loving attention!

When you practice with a Yoni Egg, you engage the muscles of the vagina and the pelvic floor and bring awareness to your sexual organs. Your brain starts to create new neuron connections correlated with these areas of the body. New nerve endings form directly in the tissue, which in turn increase sensitivity.

Ask your gym coach and they’ll tell you that the more you train a muscle, the more nerve endings it develops. Guess what this means for your sensuality and sex life?

Yoni Egg practice stimulates the Bartholin glands inside the vagina that is responsible for producing natural lubrication. One of the first effects women notice is increased juiciness. This is especially important for post-menopausal women.

The Yoni Egg is an amazing tool for helping restore the elasticity and suppleness of our sexual organs to their pre-childbirth state, and even surpassing it. Do not wait until you give birth to start the practice – there are Yoni Egg exercises specifically designed to prepare women for childbirth.

Become Much More Orgasmic.

Did you know that there are multiple sets of muscles in your pelvis that you can learn to differentiate and control independently? Developing dexterity with these muscles can create more pleasure for both you and your partner and, without doubt, will increase intimacy during lovemaking. Be prepared for more fulfilling sex to add excitement, passion, and closeness in your relationship.

Did you know that women can experience many different kinds of orgasms? Among them are vaginal, cervical and uterine orgasms. Practicing with your Yoni Egg can awaken your body and mind to make these life-changing experiences possible.

The pelvic floor muscles, unlike other muscles in the body, have the ability to regenerate and repair themselves in a short period of time. You can achieve any level of dexterity at any age, limited only by your desire and dedication.

Release Trauma Stored in the Body.

Many psychological traumas are stored in the body and a large percentage in the yoni. We are not just talking about sexual trauma. The yoni, as one of the most essential parts of our being, naturally stores emotional and energetic imprints we pick up in our lives. It makes sense to work with trauma directly at the source, in the body tissue where it is stored. Releasing the patterns of tension in the tissue can help release trauma and remove psychological blockages, which can be tremendously more effective than just talking about them. This is why working with your egg has the power to help you heal old wounds and awaken the life and love you truly desire.

If you notice stirring emotions when you work with your egg, remember to be gentle with yourself. Go slow. Consider taking a break to journal, rest, or spend time in nature.

Yoni Egg Practice Creates Positive Effects that Go Beyond Sexual Wellness.

Inside the vagina, there are many reflexology points, just like the ones on the palms of our hands. They correspond with the internal organs – heart, liver, kidneys, spleen, etc. When you wear your egg you are massaging these reflexology points in a similar way to acupuncture, stimulating and rejuvenating the organs of your entire body. It has been noted that women who enjoy sex into old age tend to look younger

Practicing with an egg increases blood flow to your pelvic organs and helps move stagnant energy. Some women report stimulating the ovaries in this gentle way has assisted in balancing their hormone levels and reducing PMS and menstrual cramps. If you practice with Nephrite Jade egg, rose quartz egg, or black obsidian egg, you will also benefit from your stone’s specific healing properties.

Reclaim your Feminine Power.

Your yoni and womb are amazing, magical places capable of bestowing new life, creating new ideas and visions, and providing you with amazing erotic experiences. By connecting to your yoni and your womb, the very center of your being, you can start accessing your feminine power and creative potential.

How to Practice With a Yoni Egg?

Simple kegel exercises are the foundation of the Yoni Egg practice. Doing Kegels is already great. Doing them with a Yoni Egg is like doing curls with a dumbbell instead of just flexing your biceps.

As you become more advanced, you can learn to manipulate the egg by moving different muscle groups inside your yoni! This is usually referred to as Pompoir or “Vaginal Kung Fu.” How do you like that?

Note: As with every exercise routine, regular practice is much better than sporadic practice. Sporadic practice is better than no practice at all. Practicing with intention and enjoyment, as opposed to just going through the mechanical motions, will make a world of difference. The best thing you can do when practicing with your Yoni Egg makes it into a ritual of self-love and self-care. Set aside some time that’s just for you and start with a gentle breast massage. The more love you give to yourself and your body, the more love you will have to share with others.

Included with your Yoni Egg order is a printed practice guide and a complimentary link to a web page with in-depth instructions for Yoni Egg practices and exercises.

The great thing is that although doing Kegels and other pelvic floor exercises will enhance your experience with the Yoni Egg, you can reap the benefits by simply wearing it! The egg will work its magic regardless. In fact, if you’ve never done Kegels before, it’s best to ease into the practice and start by just wearing your Yoni Egg for the first two weeks. Sleeping with the egg is another way you can ease into your routine and start benefiting from its properties. Your yoni will play with the egg and the crystal will do its healing work, all while you rest.

Note: It is important to remember to focus on relaxation after contraction, melting and relaxing your pelvic floor. The goal is to increase suppleness while developing muscle strength. Think about it being similar to yoga, which involves a combination of straining and stretching, tension and relaxation.

Add a New Dimension to your Favorite Activities.

The Yoni Egg can be an enhancement to your favorite practices and activities. Once you feel confident in your ability to hold the egg, you can Meditate or attend Yoga, Qigong, belly dance or Pilates class with it, or even go on a bike ride or a hike. The egg will engage muscles that would usually stay dormant during these activities, strengthening your yoni and bringing you new sensations and awareness. Just try to remember the presence of your the Yoni Egg. Sneezing, laughing or coughing can force it to pop out, so be ready to “catch it” with your muscles.

What Type of Crystal Should I Start With?

You can find Yoni Eggs made of many types of exotic crystals online. Keep in mind that not every crystal is safe to be worn inside the yoni, especially for prolonged periods of time. Even if something is available for sale online as a Yoni Egg, it is not a guarantee that this particular type of stone is 100% safe to be worn internally. It is always a good idea to do your own research. In traditional Taoist practices, practitioners use three types of crystal eggs: Nephrite jade yoni egg, Rose quartz yoni egg and Black obsidian yoni egg. These semiprecious stones have been used for thousands of years and their safety is time-tested.

Unlike many other kegel weights, Yoni Eggs are made from semiprecious stones and are completely natural and free of artificial chemicals.

Nephrite Jade is considered the best stone for basic Yoni Egg wear and practice. Nephrite jade is also the suggested stone for beginners, for a number of reasons. When you look at the facts, it’s no surprise that the Empresses and concubines of the Royal Palace of China favored the Jade Egg over other gemstone eggs. Genuine nephrite jade is a very hard, smooth and nonporous semiprecious stone. It is nearly impossible to break or crack if you ever accidentally drop it; it has a high thermal conductivity; it can be easily cleaned and disinfected by boiling it in water, and it’s a perfect weight to be used as a kegel exercise aid. With proper care, your Jade Egg is like a diamond ring – buy it once and wear it for life.

Siberian Jade

Nephrite Jade is also known to be the best stone for helping to heal the female reproductive system and balance hormones. It is a very gentle and protective stone that shields the owner from external unwanted energy while working on healing any past traumas or energetic build-up. Where other crystals might stir up emotions as they do healing work, which could become overwhelming at times, the jade egg works softly and promotes a sense of well-being.

That being said, choosing a Yoni Egg is a very personal decision, and I truly believe that every woman intuitively knows which stone is right for her. One of the main reasons to practice with a Yoni Egg is to get more in touch with your own beautiful body, and ultimately with yourself… That means learning to trust your intuition.

You can find more information about choosing your first Yoni Egg here.

Please keep in mind that most jade sold on the market is fake, chemically altered, or made out of pressed stone chip. Always look for certified solid nephrite jade when shopping for Jade Eggs to assure the best quality and safety for your health.

Never use a crystal from a crystal shop that is not specifically sold as a Yoni Egg. Harsh chemicals, dyes and artificial fillers are used during the manufacturing process of most decorative crystals sold on the market.

Natural gemstones possess healing qualities you can start taking advantage of for your physical, emotional, mental and energetic well-being.

Royal Palace dwellers knew this, thousands of years ago. Through Jade Egg practice, they were able to reclaim their feminine power, fully step into their sensual self, and awaken creativity, all while keeping their sexual organs healthy, youthful and resilient.

    Beautiful yoni eggs

    I’m already experiencing prolapse. Is it too late to reverse the damage? I’m getting nervous that I may need surgery [which obviously I don’t want] I’m 52 and have 2 kids and had a hysterectomy at age 40.

    • Anya

      Hi JC! Thank you for sharing your story!
      From what I know about prolapse it may be reversible with physical exercises, including exercises with yoni eggs. However, I strongly advise you do not attempt exercises with a yoni egg or any kind of pelvic floor exercises on your own, because there is a possibility to strengthen the wrong muscles that can make the condition worse. I would encourage you to find a pelvic specialist in your area who can work with you on creating exercise program tailored to your body and situation. They will be able to tell you if yoni egg practices are appropriate for you at this moment.
      Good luck, sending you so much love!

    My yoni egg keeps falling out, Does that mean I have no muscle control

    • Shoshana

      Hi She She,

      This may mean that you have not yet built up the dexterity of your yoni. I just want to let you know that it’s very common and is perfectly ok. Regular practice will help with this! You can start by practicing laying down or sitting up until you gain more muscle control. You may also want to consider starting with one of our large eggs, and then moving down to the medium egg as your practice progresses. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

  5. Kym

    I have had a hysterectomy. What keeps the egg from floating up into that empty space?

    • Anya

      Hi Kym,

      In women who had their uterus removed and still have the cervix, it prevents the egg from going floating up past the vaginal canal. If a woman had her cervix removed, the surgeon sews together the tissue to make sure the vaginal cavity is enclosed. It should be fine to use a yoni egg, but as with any preexisting condition we advise women to check with their doula, pelvic specialist or doctor to make sure it’s safe. It is necessary to wait sufficient amount of time after the surgery to allow the body to heal.

      When it comes to sexual organs even when the physical organ is removed, the energetic organ is still there.

      Thank you!

  6. Swan

    This may seem silly, but how to you keep it from going in too far? Can they get stuck up there?

    • anyayurenya

      Hi Swan, it’s a great question and it is a common concern! Vaginal cavity is an enclosed space, and the egg cannot travel past the cervix, so the eggs cannot “get lost”.
      However some women unconsciously tense their pelvic floor, and in this case the egg can take longer to come out after the practice is done. If this happens, it’s also nothing to worry about as once the muscles relax it will come out. Women’s bodies are designed to push and you can actually learn to expel the egg by command by engaging pelvic muscles and pushing gently.
      Worst case you can always jump up and down and let the gravity help.
      I encourage ladies that do not feel comfortable with possibility of this happening to opt out for a drilled egg – it gives you an option to put a string through the drilled hole and take the egg out by gently pulling on the string.

  7. Dekeersgieter Debby

    Very much information thank you ! Excuse me my writing if it is not correct, i am Dutch
    For many years i have been wanting to try out a Yoni egg. Mostly because i am always so tired .. not thé same as thé tiredness of a days work, but rather sickly tired.

Je said, if you have no strong mussels below, you could make it worse if you don’t do it correct… A little like you discribe above. So now i am trying to find someone to advice me more… xxx Debby

    • Shoshana

      Hi Debby! Thank you for your question! We generally recommend you check with your Douala or pelvic specialist before beginning the yoni egg practice only if you have any medical issues such as prolapse or fibroids.In these cases, it is important to make sure the exercises you do with the yoni egg are not further damaging to your pre-existing condition. However, if you have no medical issues, I see no reason a yoni egg practice would be harmful. I believe using a yoni egg could really help you! Please let me know if there are any other questions that come up.

      Thank You,


  8. Corina

    Is it ok to use the jade egg if you have fibroids on the uterus? I assume it has nothing to do with this since the egg is not going that far lol. Thank you

    • Shoshana

      Hi Corina,

      Thank you for your question. I am unfortunately not able to give medical advice, so please check with your pelvic specialist, naturopath or doctor before beginning the yoni egg practice. I am sorry I cannot give you a more specific answer!


  9. Mary

    Will i feel it there all the time? And would it not be heavy and uncomfortable?

    • Shoshana

      Hi Mary,

      Thank you for your question. Whether or not you feel the egg inside you depends on your body and also the size you choose. Some women can actively feel the egg while they wear it, others do not. We recommend the medium size for most women, and we do not get any reports that the egg is too heavy or uncomfortable.

  10. Simone

    My partner can’t feel me anymore during sex, will the yoni make a difference

    • Shoshana

      Hi Simone,

      Thank you for your message. Many women who have a regular yoni egg practice have reported to us that their practice has made intercourse more enjoyable for both themselves and their partner! With the yoni egg you can build dexterity inside the yoni, which is a combination of strength and flexibility. Your pelvic floor (squeezing power) can become stronger with practice, and this also results in stronger orgasms for you! Please let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.

  11. Cindy

    I had a complete hysterectomy which means the removed my cervix. Would I be able to use the yoni egg.

    • Shoshana


      Yes! It is no problem to use a yoni egg after you have had a hysterectomy. Our concern is that the egg cannot travel past the cervix into the uterus. From what I understand, this should not be a problem for you.

  12. Ashley

    I am going to purchase an egg but I’m indecisive I have a high tolerance and have been through a lot also just had a baby and wanted to start with the black obsidian medium but have read it will be too strong as a beginner may you assist me

    • Shoshana

      Hi Ashley,

      Thank you for your message. That is wonderful that you are feeling ready for a yoni egg! If you have just given birth, I recommend you start with a large size egg. We have jade, rose quartz and obsidian eggs available in the large size. Obsidian is a very intense stone. It is volcanic glass, and it is known for bringing old energies and traumas to the surface to be cleansed and released. If you are just starting, I would suggest a large jade egg. Jade is the traditional stone used in the yoni egg practice, and the best place to start. That said, if your intuition is telling you to start with the obsidian, I would go with that, as a big part of this practice is listening to the wisdom of your body. We also offer sets of three, one jade, one obsidian and one rose quartz, if you would like to experiment with all the stones. Please let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.
