Yes…you read that right, Vagina Weightlifting. And you thought doing Kegels was hard!
Crazy enough, this isn’t a new trend! Vaginal weight lifting is a 5000 year-old practice that has its roots in ancient, Taoist China. Courtesans in the emperor’s court used a jade egg with weights attached to it to strengthen the vaginal canal. According to The Huffington Post, her weightlifting technique puts certain Olympic events to shame. A Russian mom, Tatyana Kozhevnikova, officially owns the World’s Strongest Vagina by virtue of her record for vagina weightlifting, for the Guinness Book of World Records in 2009. She won this prestigious award by lifting 31 pounds with her vagina! She inserts an egg shaped “ball” into her vagina and attaches the weight or any item to a string through the egg. She contracts her muscles around the egg and lifts the item in whatever weight it has. It has taken her 20 years to become this powerful with her vagina.
But Tatyana is not the only one practicing vaginal weightlifting. Kim Anami, is a holistic sex and relationship coach who has been practicing vaginal weightlifting for a while. She travels the world teaching others how to vaginal weight lift and also owns a retreat to show others how to tap in to their sexuality. Kim even gives props to Tatyana for holding the record for the strongest vagina on her blog. Although Kim also practices, she has yet to surpass Tatyana’s world record.
