I found out about yoni eggs by happenstance at a party, when I met a vivacious woman named Dailia. A while back, Dailia had hosted an event featuring a woman from Harlem named Makeda Voletta, aka Queen Lioness. Makeda leads workshops all over the country, featuring topics such as sensual strength training and sacred yoni eggs.
Dailia was hopping around the kitchen bragging about the yoni egg she was wearing.
I looked for an amulet or something, but she laughed.
“You can’t SEE her. She’s inside me.”
OH. DUH. Yoni = female genital region – vulva, clitoris, vagina, etc.
“So what is its purpose?” I asked.
She gushed, “She helps me stay grounded, empowered, tight, toned, stimulated, CONNECTED.”
My eyes widened. I had to find out more.
Read Makeda’s Yoni Egg Basics overview.
Here is Dailia’s testimonial:
I love my lapis lazuli yoni egg. She is unnamed, intense and regal. Her antiquity matches my own nature, and it was a perfect fit. Her presence keeps me centered. My movement with her keeps me moist. I am rarely walking through daily life without her. What a pleasure to know that I am carrying an ancient secret in my deepest space, while most folks are floundering through life and intimacy.
I’ve been working with her since the spring of last year, after Makeda Voletta presented with Bling Blam Aboriginals. I can not wait for Makeda to come back to Saint Louis!
Makeda is regal and somewhat intimidating (she has no patience for stupid people).
I wanted in on this goddess magic!
First, I had to decide which kind of yoni egg I wanted – jasper, lapis, amazonite, amethyst, calcite…
Tiger’s eye spoke to me first and foremost. An excerpt of its properties:
A stone of protection, Tiger’s Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety. Useful for recognizing one’s own needs in relation to the needs of others. Balancing yin-yang and energizing the emotional body, Tiger Eye stabilizes mood swings, imbues us with willpower, purpose, courage and self-confidence, and releases tension.
Sounds good to me! Eagerly, I ordered it.
It was smaller than I expected. (you can click on the egg photo above to view actual size)
I’ll be honest with you – I have trouble walking around with it inside me. My muscles push it out pretty quickly. It really does take awareness and training. I lack discipline – I need to COMMIT to it.
In the meantime, I often carry it around with me in a pouch and rub on it like a worry stone – it’s so smooth and comforting. I like to wear it when I sleep. When I first push it inside me, it feels so alien and cold, but within moments, my vagina molds around it and they become one. In the morning, when I push it out, it feels alive and hot.
I also sometimes wear it during sex. I was skeptical at first, but WOWOW does it enhance things. My partner does not feel it, but it adds depth and intensity for me. Some women have sex with up to three eggs inside!
I like when my man fertilizes my egg. 🙂
So these eggs serve many purposes – they are great for exercising the pelvic muscles and they make fun sex toys, too!
You can get them drilled and undrilled so you can add a string or lanyard if you want, but I have no problem working with them as is. They won’t get lost up there.
I’ve used them before and after my hysterectomy. I don’t have a uterus or cervix, so I wondered how they would work for me post-surgery. After all, they’re so connected to the feminine center and womb – was I now empty and unable to connect with the egg?
In fact, the egg seemed to serve an even greater purpose now. It was a feminine conduit, a substitute womb.
I love my tiger’s eye, but I also wanted a larger egg. I got a bloodstone to represent the blood I no longer have:
The bloodstone looks almost black here, but in real life it’s very dark green, with faint streaks of red. (The first pic also shows a moonstone egg I got at the Science Center – I’ve been toying with incorporating it into the mix but haven’t done so yet.)
Bloodstone represents strength. I like its size – it’s actually easier to keep in.
Makeda runs a secret group on facebook with over 1000 members. Most are strong, confident women who are in touch with their sexuality and crave male energy to balance their awesome female energy. Questions are posed and discussed about the eggs and other topics such as birthing, menstruation, health, and SEX, glorious SEX!
Of course I’m wearing my tiger’s eye egg as I write this. Next, I will share with you an incredible experience I had with it and my partner… Read it here!
