Eggs!

Eggs!

Envy Envy
So i have come to find out I love using crystal eggs as a kegel exerciser and as a sort of thing my furry friends call 'ovi play.' However, they seem to be really hard to find, unless I were to buy straight up crystal or semi-precious stone eggs that you normally have out for a display. I see Eden has some of these eggs complete with a string, but the fact the string is on the smaller end bothers me as I need that end to push the egg in.

I have also found out, much to my delight, the egg I do own and use stays in perfectly with no problems unlike that with my Emigi which keeps trying to slide out. When first trying it though, I thought it got stuck and i was scared but found that when pushing out it came out easily. (Actually it shot out with quite a bit of force! Made me laugh.)

So i ask this: does anyone know of any place that sells eggs for vaginal use? I guess I could use display eggs, too, so long as they're a stone that won't harbor bacteria and all, like quartz and such, but the problem i seem to run into is most measure them in MM and not inches, so i can't tell if they're smaller or bigger than what I own.

Also, I found these jade eggs, you get 3, large, medium, and small, and I'm guessing you go smaller as you get stronger because the small ones come out easier? I'm just a bit confused there.

Anyone else use eggs for kegels or ovi play?

Goth,
Please don't let the metric dimensions prevent you from finding what you are looking for. You can Google "metric conversion" to find calculators to convert inches to MM.
Here's one site that I tried:
linklink

For example 1.5" = 38.1 MM


Good luck!

Ah yes, I did that, but the main problem I have is usually they just have one number for the MM, so I am not sure if they are talking about length or the diameter. The biggie for me is diameter. Last thing I need is to get an egg and find out it's too fat or not fat enough, ya know? Like with eon egg i almost got it... only to find out it was a 3 in diameter and my vag nearly cried, so i had to abandon getting that egg. Real shame too, was pretty and I think it was moonstone, my fave stone.

3" diameter...Ooooch!

So the problem is the retailers are not providing accurate dimensions to begin with. I see.

What size are you considering and does it need to be crystal? Maybe someone can help.

Well I can take 1.5, i was hoping to work my way up to 2 inches. So maybe 1.75 to 2 inches diameter. Smaller is okay, too, as I assume it helps to force you to work to keep them in, right? (So small = advanced?)

Do note I have never used ben wa balls or anything of the sort, either.

Crystal, stone, anything like that. Silicone eggs would be cool, too, but I have yet to see any like that. Unless I'm not looking hard enough. Wood or metal... ehh... Maybe. Depends on how heavy and the price and such. More leaning towards metal than wood though of those mediums.

You've probably already seen it, but I did a quick search and found a chrome egg at a competing site. It is 1 3/4" at its widest point and weighs approx 1 lb, 1oz. Its kinda pricey at $49.00.

Ouch. No actually I haven't seen it. I haven't actually looked at eggs so much at other toy stores, just looking at stores that have the display eggs on a stand, and even then mostly the crystal ones and all.

Try some Chinese or Asian shops. I've seen stone eggs sold in some stores and Asian markets in the Atlanta metro area, in kind of a Chinatown place. They're nice and come in a velvet lined box, usually 2 or 3 per set. Some are glass or metal and I think it may be what you're talking about. Then again, they may be paperweights or some other decoration! Browse around at international stores and you may find what you're looking for.

Thanks, that helps. I'll have to see what i have around here.

Check and see if there is a local gem and mineral society, they usually have gem show's every year and can also tell you were to find shops/vendors that sell them. I know a few in Denver Co. that will custom make them for you out of any material/size you want. At the shows I have seen many different sizes and some down right gorgeous egg's.

If you can not find a society were you live, give me a shout and I will have my dad find one close to where you live. He is a host for the Denver gem and mineral society and knows were to find them.

A word of caution: Eggs that are made to set out for display may be finished or sealed with a product that is not body-safe.

For example, wood kitchen products that are deemed to be body-safe must be finished with a product that is safe for ingestion. These same finishes are used by responsible sex toy manufacturers who use wood as their material.

Stone can also have a finishing on it to heighten the luster on products made for display. And that finish may not be body-safe.

Crystal might be a bit safer, so long as there are no toxins (there used to be lead in crystal). I'd do background research for certain.

Yeah, i was hoping to find just like finished crystal (or metal) without the coating. Like the eggs Eden supplies.

Keep us updated what you find. This sounds very interesting and I might just have to look into trying this myself!

I did see some clay egg kegelcisers on another site (from Canada -- it was an eco friendly store). For the life of me, I can't recall the name of it.

I love stone, so if I could find body-safe eggs in semi-precious stones, I'd be thrilled!

Clay eggs? These? link

Well I see most eggs being made of Jade... link

I've seen some real pretty Blood Agate, Cats Eye, and a few others that are gorgeous.

The only downside is a lot of them come from China which means expensive shipping and long wait times.

Also, the Love Stones I find are made of Jade, Rose Quartz, and Obsidian, so I guess those are body safe....

I've found them at natural/hollistic type stores. Tarot card readers and fortune tellers and whatnot use pieces of crystal to store their aura.

I was really into tarot card reading once =/

Maybe a Whole Foods would have them, if you live in a decently big city.

Never heard of a Whole Foods. And I, too, am into card readings, runes, and also zodiac charts. :3

Whole Foods is a big grocery store chain, but sells mostly organic food and aims to sell to the more 'alterative' people.

Personal observation: In all the stores I've been in, about 50% of their employees have big visible tattoos, dreadlocks and/or unnatural hair color(s). I personally love it there. The atmosphere is amazing.

And I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one doing those type of things. I usually don't talk about it because historically that only leads to people judging me. Oh well haha

I think we have a place similar. It had a huuuuuuuge vitamin selection and I was like O_O when i saw it. But sadly, it's too far away for me to get to since I can't drive or anything.

Oh, also, thankfully I have gem/mineral/etc books and you have to be careful, some stones and such are water soluble. Like Angelite. Pity, i found a very pretty one as an egg, too.

Still on the hunt!

I don't want to hijack. But, I LOVE Whole Foods. I have to drive to get to either in our area a while, but they have things I can't get anywhere else.

Recently ordered an egg made of Onyx and Quartz mixed. It's a bit larger than what I currently have and use, and I will be ordering smaller ones too so I can learn to hold those in as well.

So far it seems Onyx, Jade, many different Quartz, and Osidian are typically used for ben wa balls and kegel eggs.

Jade has a hardness of 6, composition of Na(AIFe)Si2O6 with impurities.

Onyx has a hardness of 7, composition of SiO2 Silicon dioxide with carbon and iron.

Obsidian has a hardness of 5-5.5, composition SiOs Silicon dioxide with impurities.

Rose Quartz has a hardness of 7, composition of Sio2 silicon dioxide with impurities.

Clear Quartz has a hardness of 7, composition of Sio2 silicon dioxide.

Obsidian would be the weakest of the crystals to use and are probably more prone to scratching and easier to break if dropped. All have silicon dioxide as a property, also known as Silica. (Though Jade has it as a different type of formula.)

Silica in powdered form if inhaled is dangerous. In other aspects other than inhalation, it is harmless and inert. (link)

So in regards to kegel eggs, if the compound is silicon dioxide (Silica) it would be considered body safe from what I am reading.

If I am wrong, then please correct me, it's still morning and I'm just having my coffee.

EDIT: I am now curious what other crystals might have silica compounds, so I'll be making a list if I find the time.

So, I am thinking the Clear Quartz is probably the safest?

Thanks for sharing this info. I love the idea of using natural stone -- so pretty! I am fascinated with natural materials.

Yes, and from looking at the Love Eggs, one is made out of Rose Quartz, basically any kind of colored quartz has 'impurities' and that is what gives it its color.

However before buying, I do ask if there are any finishes on the stones as well as if any chemicals have been used on them while in production.
