The first time I heard of a jade egg was while attending a weekend tantra workshop last year. The mysterious little object was mentioned in whispered tones while the presenter was speaking, so although I got the gist of where it went (inside the vaginal canal), I wasn’t really sure what one did with it when it was there or the many benefits of having/using one.
So, I finally did some research and came across the wonderful Tamra Mercieca who hooked me with these historical and erotic facts:
“The Jade Egg has been around for some 5000 years originating in ancient China, where Queens and mistresses of the most powerful nobles used it internally to strengthen the vaginal canal. Legend has it that the Taoist practice was a secret kept only in the Royal Palace so the ladies of privilege could maintain their youthful beauty, vitality and sexuality as they matured into old age.”
And the health benefits:
“The Taoist system regards the sexual organs as the roots of life connected to all other glands and organs in the body, so it is no surprise that the vaginal canal is full of reflexology points that directly connect via medians to organs such as the heart, spleen, liver, lungs and kidneys. When you use the Jade Egg it stimulates these points, similar to acupuncture, to maintain the overall health of the body.”
Using a jade egg regular can help you:
Overcome infertility issues
Boost your libido
Draw out trauma and illness from the vaginal tissue
Give the sexual organs an uplift effect (resulting in a natural facelift!)
Help you lubricate naturally (especially great for women going through menopause)
Heal damaged nerve endings experienced during birth
Regain your pre-birth vaginal elasticity
Strengthen the pelvic floor and cure incontinence
Heal illness and disease of the sexual organs
And most importantly keep the sexual organs in prime health!
It didn’t take much to convince me I should have one. I’ve just ordered my own jade egg and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the sexy black stone so I can learn more about it – first hand.
Next step: Yoga for the Vagina? Sounds fun!
