What is Yoni Massage?

Yoni massage is a sexual tantra practice that involves massaging the vagina, which is called yoni in Sanskrit and loosely translates to “a sacred space.”

Yoni massage allows you time to slowly explore your body in a more sensual way. It can help people who usually feel finished after one orgasm to achieve multiple orgasms, and it’s especially beneficial for people with vaginas who have never had an orgasm.

It can also be very healing for those who have suffered sexual trauma in their past because the approach and technique is all about giving—making the vagina owner feel loved, cherished, worshipped, and honored.

Hysteria in Women

In the 1800s when women were considered “frustrated” they visited a specialist doctor to have their “hysteria” treated by a professional. Basically, the doctor performed masturbation by way of vagina and yoni massage.

Doctors would treat female “hysterics” by massaging them until they reached orgasm. The notion that women suffered from hysteria, a poorly defined disorder with a laundry list of symptoms, led to the creation of the modern-day vibrator.

These started with hand operated devices.

The practice came to a head in the late 19th-century when doctors started using steam-powered machinery to save their hands the trouble of having to masturbate all these women.

With electricity came the latest inventions in yoni manipulation.

Sex research shows that most women do not regularly orgasm from vaginal intercourse alone. So, if you are not getting manual or oral stimulation at home, it makes sense that your interest might be piqued to visit a yoni expert, offering a handful of solutions.

James still likes to use his hands and fingers so he can feel the intensity building. But there are also a few options of toys. If you have a favorite one you might want to bring it along.
