The $100,000 Vagina
Jen Gunter. I Challenge You to a Vagina-Off.
$100,000 USD says my vaginas are happier, healthier and stronger than yours.
We’ll get to our gentle-womanly wager in a moment. First things first.
As the owner of the (second) strongest vagina in the world—you may have seen me and my vagina travel the planet, lifting objects and showing people what strong, empowered and happy vaginas can do—I need to school you in a few things jade egg.
I’m a 20-year-committed practitioner and teacher of jade/yoni egg vaginal strengthening.
You’ve come out with some correct and incorrect statements about jade eggs.
Let’s “wield the lasso of truth”, as you like to say, and set things straight.
“Jade eggs are not meant to be worn all day or night.”
The main reason for using the egg is to increase vaginal strength. If the egg simply stays put without any effort on the vagina’s part, it’s not building any strength or generating any physiological benefit.
Or, if a woman is clenching it constantly, she is engaging muscles that need to rest in-between firing. This isn’t good either.
The best way to practice is to have full, conscious attention on the vagina and the egg for 10-15 minutes a session. Using specific vagina-cises even three times a week will give a woman and her vagina the benefits she is looking for.
The Goop article you based your comments on said to do otherwise. I—like you—take issue with that. I would never give people the advice to “wear” eggs all day or night.
“Jade eggs are porous and harbour bacteria.”
Jade and other crystals used for a yoni egg practice are hard, polished, smooth stones.
Jade eggs are cleansed before and after use and only employed for short periods of time—like 10-15 minutes, as I mentioned above.
There are far more porous and bacteria-laden things out there that go into vaginas regularly:
Penises. Hands. Sex toys.
Does your partner sterilize his penis before entering you?
I have Tantric sex for hours—and I mean hours—on end. Am I at risk for toxic shock?
Like you’ve said before, the vagina is a powerful, self-cleaning apparatus. While we obviously don’t want to over-challenge it, any minuscule amount of bacteria it does encounter from such objects is negligible.
“OBGYNs and ‘experts’ say yoni eggs are dangerous and advise against them.”
Plenty of female health specialists recommend jade yoni eggs to their patients and clients: OBGYNs, general physicians, naturopaths, midwives, doulas and postpartum educators.
You know, people who know vaginas intimately.
OBGYN Dr. Christiane Northrup, NY Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and probably one of, if not the most, well-known and respected OBGYNs out there, suggests women use jade eggs and endorses my Vaginal Kung Fu Salon (my online course in how to use the jade egg).
She is one of many.
“There is no science behind jade egg use.”
The jade egg practice more closely resembles an actual Kegel exercise—the one that Dr. Arnold Kegel created in 1947 to help women with urinary incontinence and had a 90% success rate with—than what incorrectly passes for a Kegel today.
You know how you and many OBGYNs tell women to “Do Your Kegels!” and squeeze their vaginas a bunch of times, randomly flapping them in the wind?
That isn’t a Kegel.
A true Kegel exercise involves inserting a device into the vagina—for resistance and feedback.
Just like lifting weights. You don’t air lift, do you?
No. That would be silly. And a waste of time.
You pick up a dumbbell and contract and relax. The weight provides resistance and feedback, just like one would seek out in any weight lifting regimen.
THAT is correct Kegel exercise. And that is the jade egg practice.
The jade egg workout pre-dates Kegel exercises by 5000 years.
Yes, 5000 years ago, jade eggs were used by courtesans in the emperor’s court of ancient China for strength, articulation and pleasure.
Weights can then be attached on the end of the egg to adjust the level of resistance.
However, most OBGYNs incorrectly tell their patients to randomly flap their vaginas in the wind, with nothing inside of their vaginas.
No wonder up to 65% of women these days suffer from urinary incontinence and 50% of women experience POP (pelvic organ prolapse) after childbirth, according to the Yale University School of Medicine.
These statistics are appalling. Clearly something isn’t working.
Which is why Goop sold out of all of their jade eggs in hours. Women are looking for another way.
One that actually works and is based in fact and science.
Oh, and just because something hasn’t been “scientifically proven” doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.
All it means is that no one has funded a study to prove that it works.
Which brings me to my wager.
Let’s be clear, we already know—and you’ve agreed—that pelvic floor strengthening works for everything from incontinence to improving orgasms, which is what the jade egg does.
But let’s have some fun here. Let’s directly address the jade egg.
Inspired by you, I’m going to commission a “scientific study” to show the effects specifically of the jade egg practice and how I teach it.
I’ve already had thousands of happy vaginas go through my programs, lubricating and ejaculating their way across the planet, but let’s document it. Why not?
I am so confident of the phenomenal results that will be shown, I’m willing to bet $100,000- that my vaginas will surpass yours in all of these areas:
- Natural lubrication
- Sexual pleasure and sensation
- Overall rejuvenation of their sex lives and thus their relationships/marriages
- Reversal of urinary stress incontinence
- Improvement in PMS, difficult periods and menopause
I’m saying if we were to compare client vaginas, my vaginas would kick your vaginas’ asses.
Here are the ground rules though: no cheating.
- 1) No surgery. You can’t remove someone’s uterus or ovaries and now say that they are having trouble-free periods, when now they can’t even have a period.
- 2) No drugs, herbs, supplements or hormones. Again, you can’t put someone on synthetic hormones and now claim that you have balanced their hormones.
- 3) No artificial lubricant. You can’t say that your vaginas are now wet, because you’ve put some KY Jelly inside of them.
$100,000 USD says I’m right.
So put your money where your vagina is.
