More About Egg Play
During egg play, the egg may be placed inside a vagina. It can also be used externally to stimulate a clitoris or labia or a penis or testicles. All genders can also use the egg for external anal play, especially when it’s held against a butt plug.
Many eggs have remote controls. This means an egg can be placed inside the a vagina and turned on and off when their partner wishes. This can be great fun for couples, who might go out and enjoy egg play undetected in a social setting, like a party or restaurant.
The vibrations egg toys emit can be overwhelming for some people. If you’ve never played with eggs before, it’s best to start slowly and gradually increase their intensity to avoid over-stimulation especially on very sensitive areas of the body like the clitoris and the head of the penis.
Egg play can be made more pleasurable with a lubricant. The best lubricant will depend on your egg, so check the packaging to make sure you don’t choose one that will degrade its surface.
Egg play can be a lot of fun, but only if you take care of your egg to keep it free of bacteria. Always wash your egg thoroughly with mild soap and warm water after you use it. If you use your egg for anal play, wash it thoroughly before you use it on other parts of the body, especially the vagina.
