The yoni egg comes from Taoism (one of the 3 pillars of Chinese philosophy), it was used by high ranking women and courtesans to sexually satisfy men.
The yoni in Sanskrit refers to the female genitalia and all the sacredness that surrounds it. The yoni egg therefore symbolises fertility and life.
Nowadays, the yoni egg is placed in the vagina and used to strengthen the perineum or to prepare for childbirth. Of course it keeps its quality of increasing vitality and sexual energy. The egg allows the woman who uses it to connect fully with her yoni.
The Yoni egg has several actions:
First of all you have to choose the size of your egg, there are often 3 different sizes. You should know that the M size egg is close to the size of a hen’s egg.
If you are a beginner in the practice I advise you to choose a medium or large size egg.
The more toned your perineum is, the smaller the size of the egg will be. If you don’t yet know how to assess your perineal tone you can do this simple exercise. Insert a finger into your vagina and contract as much as possible. If your finger feels the contraction well, your perineum is toned.
I recommend using the yoni egg for 10 minutes on the first day and increasing by 3 minutes with each use (up to 30 minutes). Some women keep the egg inside her until the body chooses to expel it naturally.
You can choose to lie down (and even keep it overnight, but this should not be for the long term as the night is a resting phase for all the muscles in your body).
You can also continue your daily routine. (This will result in a better toning of your perineum).
There are also many pelvic floor exercises: Kegel exercises.
Once the egg is inserted, stand up slowly.
