Do Jade Eggs work for vaginal tightening?

Jade eggs, also often called yoni eggs, are small stone eggs made from jade that are inserted in the vagina and worn for your chosen amount of time. If you know anything about Goop - the website run by Gwyneth Paltrow – you might have heard of these already. Jade eggs became a huge trending topic in 2017 when Goop started selling them and talking about all the alleged health benefits they have.

The site stated that jade eggs utilize the unique energetic healing properties of crystals to do all sorts of things inside your body. According to Goop they can help to cultivate sexual energy, stimulate the key areas of reflexology around the vaginal walls, support hormonal balance and develop and clear the chi pathways in the body and intensify female energy.

Which is fine. However, none of this has scientific research to back it up. 

You can also find sites that claim that jade eggs can result in increased sexual desire and more natural lubrication. Now, this one might have some standing as the muscles holding the toy in place will contract and bring more blood flow into the area. However, kegel exercisers of any kind will also do the same thing, and without the risk associated with jade eggs, which we will get into soon.

It’s not so much the jade but the egg that is going to give you these benefits.

Regular kegel exercises do have a lot of physical benefits that strengthen your pelvic floor and jade eggs can be helpful with that. A strengthened pelvic floor can help to reduce the symptoms of incontinence, promote healing after childbirth and make for a stronger orgasm due to increased blood flow.


Why are jade eggs so bad?

The issue is that jade eggs are made of stone and this is a porous material which can do more harm than good. Being porous means that bacteria can be absorbed by the egg and cleaning it isn’t going to remove it. Anything porous can not be completed sterilized and as soon as it has been used once, you run the risk of introducing bacteria back into your body. And, reintroducing bacteria into your body is a quick and easy way to give yourself an infection. Yikes!

Another issue is that jade is a slippery material that can be very hard to remove. Once you are finished, you need to use your fingers to remove the egg from your body and the slippery surface and egg shape can make this extremely hard. Some jade eggs come with a hole drilled into them so you can attach a string for removal. However, this creates a hole that is very difficult to thoroughly clean and creates more of a risk for bacteria to build on the egg.

And lastly, jade eggs are delicate and as soon as any scratches, ridges or cracks appear in the egg, it is no longer safe for insertion into the body. Not only can these harbour bacteria, but they can also scratch or tear your skin too. 

What can I use for vaginal tightening instead?

Stick with kegel balls made of materials that are non-porous and safe for use inside the body. Materials like silicone, glass or ABS plastic are perfect and easily available. And only use them for a short period like 20 minutes. And, remember that the best way to do kegel exercises to get results is to contract and relax the muscles. You need to find a product that is the right weight for you and allows you to tighten the muscles around the toy and loosen them without the toy falling out too.

And don’t overdo it! While some sites selling jade eggs tell you that you can leave these eggs in for hours at a time, even overnight, this is going to do your body more damage than good. Holding in these eggs will overwork your muscles as it will cause them to be in a constant contractive state. Overworking these muscles can result in painful penetrative sex and uncomfortable tightness.  

Oh, and vaginal tightening? It’s not a thing. What you can do is strengthen the pelvic muscles so you have more control over the whole bladder and vaginal area. Strong muscles can be felt when you contract during penetrative sex and this is what most people are referencing when they talk of tightening a vagina.
