The idea of sticking an egg up your private parts may seem a bit strange, but hear me out. Jade eggs have been around for centuries — 4,000 years, to be exact. In fact, this mysterious practice can be traced back to ancient China, where only the queen and concubines of the royal palace were allowed to participate in this Taoist tradition.
The jade egg practice was believed to improve health, increase energy in the body, balance the chakras, and of course sensitize and tone the vagina for a more intense sexual experience. Sounds like a pretty good deal.
So how does it work exactly?
If you’re looking for a practical explanation of jade eggs, they’re essentially a kegel exerciser. We’ve all heard that kegels are good for you, and in fact, you’re probably doing one right now. In a recent study, 74 women were prescribed a kegel exercise program after giving birth. After eight weeks, the group reported a significant increase in sexual self-efficacy.
Some believe kegels are essential for a healthy sex life, especially in our “sit down” culture. Your pelvic floor muscles — responsible for intensity and power of orgasm — are getting weakened and stretched out by the minute. You could consider jade eggs to be like a “kegel dumbbell.” One single kegel with a jade egg is the equivalent to 30 without it. Jade is an incredibly dense stone, and that extra weight will get your pelvic floor stronger, in less time, as well as heal sexual trauma and feelings of self limitation through the energy of the jade itself.
If you want the more “esoteric” explanation, jade eggs push “chi” energy up into the body, which nourishes the vital organs as well as helps to balance the chakras. With every “squeeze” of the PC or pelvic floor muscles, the energy gets pumped up through your chakra system, all the way into your third eye. This can leave you feeling high, giggly, and focused on the present without even trying.
To connect this concept to kegels, when your pelvic floor is strong and tight, the chi energy is easily held within the body. When it’s loose and weak, the energy can leak out, which is why you might feel tired and drained after orgasm. To move the energy up, all you have to do is breathe in while squeezing the egg with your PC muscles and then breathe out while releasing the egg. It will also help if you picture the energy filling your entire body from your fingertips to your toes. This can be done either laying down or standing up with your feet hip width apart and your knees slightly bent.
Remember, just because you use a jade egg, doesn’t mean you need to spend hours every day lying down and breathing deeply. Although you will experience the most benefits from the practice by focusing on the energy and incorporating breath, you can also get some really great results by just walking around your house while giving it the occasional squeeze.
The Power of Jade
While holding in the egg, the energy of the jade crystal will be doing its work to slowly heal trauma and increase trust and fidelity in one’s self. Jade is also associated with the heart chakra. It helps to open up our spiritual heart as well as heal our physical heart. While doing your jade egg exercises, try breathing into your heart chakra and on the breath out, picture the chi energy spreading across your entire chest. The great thing about jade is that it’s a low and slow kind of crystal. It gently cleanses your body of negative energy and is perfect if you are a sensitive person.
If you are already familiar with tantra, incorporating a jade egg will only push your practice over the edge. On the other hand, if all you want is better sex, the jade egg will turn your vagina into a super charged orgasm machine. Try it for yourself — I promise you’ll never look back.
