Ladies, you may have heard of Kegel exercises before, but there’s a new trend doing rounds on Instagram, which reaps even better results than your regular Kegels. Intrigued? Well, it’s called vaginal weight lifting and it’s exactly what you think it is. Turns out, women around the world are lifting coconuts and other household objects in a bid to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles through exercise eggs.
In case you are wondering how in the world women succeed in lifting weights with their hoo-ha, here’s the answer: According to a report published in Fox News, the woman ties a string to a yoni egg, and then inserts an egg into her vagina. With the opposite end of the egg she can string weights, coconuts, or any other object she deems rights. To lift it, she must engage her pelvic floor and deeper muscles in the vaginal canal.
Now, it may seem a little daunting at first, but it sure has its benefits. Here are a few:
It Intensifies Your Orgasms Like Magic
There is enough proof to indicate that a strong pelvic floor can intensify your orgasm. “The orgasm is an intense contraction, and a stronger pelvic floor can definitely intensify that, and even make it easier to have G-spot orgasms. This is because you are creating greater tension around it,” says Dr Laura Berman, famous USA-based sex therapist, in an interview with Huffington Post.
Hmmm…what are you waiting for then?

It Can Help In Treating Uterine Prolapse
Uterine prolapse is a condition, which occurs when the pelvic floor muscles that support the uterus lose their strength. This allows uterus and cervix to protrude through the vagina. Not very pretty!
According to a 2014 study published by F1000Research, symptoms of uterine prolapse can include urine leakage or retention, constipation, problems with sexual intercourse and seeing the uterus or cervix coming out of the vagina. In fact, about 30 to 40% of women develop some form of pelvic organ prolapse in their lifetime, states a report by Fox News. However, vaginal weight lifting helps in preventing prolapse by strengthening the pelvic structure.
Natural Lubrication Is A Problem? Not Anymore
It’s interesting to note that vaginal weight lifting improves the circulation in the vaginal canal, which helps in enhancing lubrication. Since one in every 10 women experiences pain while having sex, this new form of kegel exercise can come in handy to quite an extent. Vaginal dryness can be touted as one of the prime reasons behind painful sex. Now, some women take the help of artificial lubricators to seal the deal, but vaginal weight lifting helps in natural lubrication.
