You may have been reading a lot online about yoni eggs. Those crystal eggs that women are sticking up their hoo-ביצת יוני.
“Seriously?!” you think…
But the curiosity sets in.
Promises of easier to achieve orgasms. More intense orgasms. Multiple orgasms. Better energy. Better sleep. Tons of benefits. “Can this be for real?” you think.
The curiosity is getting the better of you. Why has there been so much media attention? I mean, vaginas ARE a very interesting topic, but “hmmmm” you wonder.
“Okay, I’m in” you think. You log online and start browsing yoni eggs. You don’t know where to begin.
Here are 3 questions to consider when choosing your first yoni egg:
- What crystal do I want to use?
Firstly, you can evaluate crystals based on healing properties. You can read the product descriptions of the eggs and align what they work on with what you feel you need help with. For example, you might feel that you want to attract more love in your life. Then you read that rose quartz is a perfect stone to manifest love. In that way, you are drawn to rose quartz and that will be your first yoni egg.
Secondly, you can choose a crystal based on intuition. You can check out photos of different eggs and maybe you just really love the color of one. Or the speckled design really pleases you. Or maybe there is just some intangible quality that pulls you in, and you decide that that egg is the one you want. This method of choosing an egg is completely valid, as there is likely some sort of reason why this particular egg is standing out for you. Allow yourself to not know the reason why an egg “should” be for you, and just let your intuition draw you.
Lastly, you can choose a yoni egg based on budget. Yoni eggs come in a range of prices, with genuine jade eggs being on the more expensive side, and other crystal materials being less expensive.
Jade is the classic choice, being the tried-and-true egg of choice, having been used in China for thousands of years. Jade has been very popular due to its beauty, its gentle yet powerful metaphysical properties, and its resistance to breaking.
However, many other eggs have emerged on the market, the more popular ones being rose quartz, obsidian, and amethyst. There are many other eggs available, too, and if they speak to you, then by all means you can choose those less common eggs. There is no right or wrong answer when choosing your personal yoni egg.
- What size egg do I want to use?
Contrary to initial logic, the larger eggs are not for advanced users. It’s in fact the opposite. Larger eggs, although they may be slightly heavier, are more easily maintained inside the vagina. In order to keep the smaller eggs inside the vagina and to do exercises with the small eggs, your vag needs to be tighter, more sensitive, and more agile. Therefore, the small eggs are for advanced users. And it has nothing to do with if you are a petite person or not. If you have had kids or are over the age of 50, you may want to start with a large egg. If not, you may want to start with a medium egg. Then over time as you are able to expertly do your yoni egg exercises with that egg, you can move down in size to a smaller egg.
- Do I want an undrilled or drilled egg?
The last question to consider when choosing an egg is undrilled vs. drilled. Undrilled eggs are great for using these eggs for their crystal healing. You leave the eggs inside and you get the slight weight of the egg to help strengthen the pelvic floor, and you can experience the particular benefits from the specific crystal you choose. Some women might feel a little uncomfortable with removing the egg from the yoni without a string, however.
Drilled eggs are an easy solution, so you can attach a string of hemp or unflavored floss, and can easily remove the egg when you are ready, as easily as you remove a tampon. Another reason why you might want a drilled egg is if you are interested in vaginal weight-lifting, where you attach a small weight to the yoni egg, so you can actually do resistance training with your vag!
No matter what type of egg you choose, just consider your goal and purpose, and you will make the right choice. If you want a large undrilled obsidian, go on with your bad self. If you decide on a medium drilled jade, then hell yeah. And maybe over time it changes. Maybe you begin a collection of crystal yoni eggs! You may feel one day you need amethyst, and another day clear quartz. There is no wrong choice, there is only your choice.
