Pussy Power

It’s almost impossible to scroll through a social media timeline without seeing women showcasing their fitness regimes. Big bootys from squats, flat abs created by crunches and all round svelteness attributed to celebrity endorsed teas, diets and beauty treatments. But there are a growing number of females who are intent on making sure their pussies pack a punch by using the power of crystals.

It was back in summer when I first heard of yoni eggs. A male friend asked if I knew it was possible for women to lift weights with their nether regions. My mind boggled at the thought of attempting a deadlift with my crotch until he sent me a link that shed some light on the matter.

Small weights were attached to a crystal fashioned into the shape of egg which a woman brave enough could insert inside her and perform kegel exercises with. I was in awe and spent the next few hours scouring the internet for more information.

Although the trend for using yoni eggs has gained traction on the internet quite recently, its origins can be traced way back to ancient Eastern cultures where the preferred stone of choice was jade. Attaching weights to the egg seems to be reserved for the more seasoned or hard-core users since most women are content with the heaviness of the eggs themselves which typically come in three sizes: small, medium and large

As with most things faddy, America seems to be at the forefront of the resurgence so I was shocked to come across a lady in the UK doing her best to pioneer the art of pussy popping.

Mami Sarjo owns Sarjo’s Wholistics – an alternative health company that prefers to use Mother Nature instead of Father Chemical to combat and treat a variety of ailments. Sarjo’s discovery of yoni eggs was via the internet much like most people’s. “I think I might have seen a post on Instagram. What I understood about it was that it was about getting in touch with your femininity and sensuality and that’s what appealed to me the most,” she tells me when we decide to meet up and talk more.

Unpacking a kente print backpack overflowing with a variety of crystals, herbs and oils, Sarjo explains how stocking yoni eggs alongside her other products was the perfect fit. “I am always looking for ways we can enhance our health, especially woman who suffer from reproductive disorders. This is a way to engage with your sensuality and get some healing benefits at the same time in a way that doesn’t feel so clinical.”

According to various sources, not only does performing pelvic floor exercises with a yoni egg help you achieve a vice like grip down there, it also stimulates a variety of pressure points in the vagina which correspond to major organs in the body.

Combine that with the purported benefits of crystals and it seems you practically have abracadabra working between your legs. That said, little mainstream research has been done to corroborate these claims. Skeptics will no doubt question how putting a polished stone inside you could cure any medical condition, but it doesn’t take a genius to work out how it could benefit your sex life.

“Some women feel like their sexuality is a taboo subject. I think if we understand ourselves sensually, we are able to engage with our partners, let loose and enjoy sex more,” Sarjo explains.

Telling me she often feels “powerful” and “very juicy” when using her eggs, Sarjo mentions there are also crystal dildos or wands available for women who literally want some sexual healing. “Sex toys are silicone based which can cause problems for sensitive women. Wands are natural and you feel a different kind of energy when you use them. Rose quartz is perfect for enhancing that love energy directly inside of you.”

Women who are a little more adventurous might even want to try having sex with their egg inside them! “I’ve heard it’s absolutely amazing because it helps massage the man’s penis which obviously stimulates him more and gives him a deeper orgasm,” beams Sarjo.

If like me you are a bit of a hippy, yoni eggs also have the ability to help achieve another type of ecstasy. As well as assisting you to control your breath during meditation, performing pelvic floor exercises with the appropriate crystal helps to clear and balance your chakras and awaken the kundalini energy inside you – a feeling I can only describe as zengasmic.

Whether you want your toes to curl, have a boa constrictor like grip or aum your way to bliss, it seems  having a yoni egg in your bedside cabinet is probably the most magical thing you could possess.
