Los Angeles-based sex trainer Kim Anami practices what she calls "vaginal kung fu." The 44-year-old American says this type of workout helps women look younger and enhances their sexual pleasure.
With the help of the vaginal muscles, Kim can hold various objects, and quite heavy ones: pineapple, several mangoes, an Oscar statuette, and even a surfboard. She has been practicing her technique for 20 years. To hold the object, she attaches it to a jade egg, which is held by the muscles of the vagina. Most of my work is about breaking down sexual barriers: starting dialogues about sex and saying what, deep down, people themselves want to hear and say, but usually can't,”says Kim. “We put up walls to protect ourselves, and we choose to fear rather than open up. Until we break down all these walls, until we learn to soften and relax, we cannot fully feel.
