What is the difference between drilled and undrilled Yoni eggs?


This is a personal preference and there's no right or wrong answer! The reason for the drilled hole is so a string can be attached to the Yoni egg for easy removal (think removing a tampon). Majority of women new to the Yoni egg practice are afraid the egg will get stuck, but rest assured that can not happen. With the natural weight of the egg, it will find its way out, especially when you have relaxed your muscles and give a little push. In the beginning you may prefer some assistance of the string as you get to know your Yoni egg and sacred space, but a simple push is all you really need…and maybe the assistance of your fingers.
