For the past couple of weeks, I have been selling beautiful, Black Obsidian yoni wands. As expected, these have been very well-received by those interested in Conscious Sexuality in South Africa – but I have also had a few women ask me what the differences are between yoni wands and yoni eggs?
As with my yoni eggs and yoni steaming herbs, yoni wands continue my theme of yoni/body reconnection – and of how important this is for vitality in all aspects of our lives. Both the wands and the eggs help to build sensitivity and increase our capacity for pleasure. But when it comes to the main differences between the two, my feelings/discovery on this so far is as follows:-
Yoni Eggs – are better for toning the pelvic floor, increasing circulation and lubrication, and for building dexterity. They can also be “worn” – so a yoni egg practice can be continued into your day (at least for a couple of hours, I don’t recommend wearing one for too much longer than that) and, in this way, nicely integrated into your life as a whole and with more time to build sensory awareness – the connection between the brain and vagina, which has immensely powerful healing results. There is also a big clue in the appearance of the two… the shape and energy of the eggs is very feminine – very “yin” – gentle, teaching us to receive, to be more open and to connect with and build sexual energy. The eggs are very grounding and have a very strong restorative effect on the whole vagina/womb area.
Yoni Wands – are better for de-armouring the vagina and cervix, as it is possible to to keep hold of them – even when you are on the cervix – and to direct them to specific points and hold them there whilst your body releases. They are also a wonderful self-pleasure or partner-pleasure tool. Using a yoni wand for self-pleasure can help us work out for ourselves what we enjoy sexually – we can work out the different zones, strokes and tempo we find to be most pleasurable – information we can then share with a partner too, if we so choose. A yoni wand is certainly recommended for cervical stimulation/orgasm – as its length makes it so much easier for prolonged stimulation of the cervix, which can be very hard to reach just using the fingers.
The shape and energy of the wands is masculine – very “yang” – they have a clear, direct focus (de-armouring or pleasure) and are more about releasing sexual energy/unwanted emotions – which obviously brings its own healing and builds vitality. And is a lot of fun too…. Using a yoni wand is like upping your pleasure experience several notches – highly recommended! 😉
I hope this helps clarify these differences a little more – but if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to post them, below.
