How to insert your Yoni Egg
Before inserting your egg, it’s helpful to empty your bladder and make sure you won’t have any distractions for a few minutes (e.g. your phone is on silent, the kids are asleep). Start by taking a few deep breaths or spending a few minutes turning yourself on. The relaxed state and natural lubrication makes it easier to enjoy the yoni egg and exercises. While lying down (your knees up and feet on the bed), slowly insert the egg into your vagina with the widest end up –it should feel like inserting a smooth tampon with no applicator.
Kegel exercises are the most well-known pelvic floor exercises women use to help strengthen their vaginal muscles. They have been shown to enhance orgasm, rebuild pelvic strength post-partum, and assist with incontinence. Gemstone Yoni Eggs can assist by providing weight to the training and bring added benefits associated with that particular Gemstone.
Once your yoni egg is inserted, sit up slowly and then stand up. Next, contract your pelvic muscles around the egg. This clenching is similar to the muscle contractions you make when you’re trying to hold in urine. Clench the yoni egg for 10 seconds and then release 10 seconds. Do 3 reps (1 minute total) for 5 to 15 minutes. For an added benefit, you can also rock or roll your hips with motions at a slow pace that feel good to you while you clench and release.
How to prepare your body to receive your Yoni Egg:
Before using the Yoni Egg, it’s beneficial to tune and and ask your vagina if she is ready to have something inside her. By cupping your yoni with your hands or placing the egg at the entrance of your vagina and asking her for consent you will either get a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Waiting for your yoni to take the egg in is a very empowering and nurturing practice for a woman to experience, rather than pushing, needing to ‘get off’ or doing something when she isn’t ready. Honouring and respecting your own boundaries will help you to do the same with your partner or lover, making you more empowered in your sexuality.
Please also be aware that not all Gemstones are suitable for the insertion into the Yoni, therefore the Yoni Eggs available here have been chosen based on the individual healing elements.
Note: Avoid wearing Yoni egg for extended periods of time (exercises listed above are meant to be 15 minute or less). You should avoid wearing one while menstruating and please be aware that using your egg during intimacy or sex is a personal choice,however always exercise precaution.
