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 and Greek escorts have been practising 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 worshipped 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.

Why Practising with a Yoni Egg?
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.
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?
As with every exercise routine, regular practice is much better than sporadic practice. Sporadic practice is better than no practice at all. Practising 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 practising 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.
The great thing is that although doing Kegel’s 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 Kegel’s 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.
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.
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 favoured the Jade Egg over other gemstone eggs. Genuine nephrite jade is a very hard, smooth and non-porous 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.
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.
