Kim Anami is travelling around the world lifting things with her vagina. Possibly more than you can lift with your biceps.
Anami, an intimacy coach who teaches, among other things, "vaginal kung fu," is a believer in the power every woman holds between her legs, and has set out to prove it.
She has travelled around the world, tagging Instagram photos with #thingsiliftwithmyvagina, demonstrating her unique abilities and seriously impressive vaginal muscles.
But this isn't just showboating. As Anami explains on her site, if you can't shoot ping pong balls out of your vagina, you're sexually disconnected and missing out on some of the wonders of your body.
As HuffPost blogger Joan Price writes, strengthened pelvic floor muscles can lead to better sex and stronger orgasms, and can also help with incontinence.
Last year, Anami put out an exercise video, explaining why it's important to lift weights with your vagina. Our advice? Don't start with a surfboard.
Check out Anami's pictures from her adventures here:
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina The LA Series. Yo! I lift weights too. With my vagina! At Muscle Beach in Venice, lifting with the Muscle Up Kings. They were super impressed with my mad skillz. If you didn’t know, the world record for vaginal weight lifting is 31 pounds, held by Tatiana Kozhevnikova, from Russia. P.S. You might be (justifiably) distracted by the eye candy in this shot—don't miss the weight between my legs. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #vaginalweightlifter
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina The Bali Series. Backbend with Lady Finger bananas. These tiny bananas, which grow in a fan shape, are the sweetest you’ll ever taste. One of my favourite tropical fruits. In Ubud, Bali. Lush, lush, lush. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #tropicalfruitsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina Sunset with amethyst crystal, Venice Beach. The LA Series. Are you shining your inner light? Are you integrating your sexual energy into all that you do? Your sexual, life-force energy is your power source. It lights up everything that you do in the world. In a culture that separates sex from, well, life, it’s no surprise that people dissociate from their sexual organs. That dissociation manifests as body parts that, because they have been so disowned, end up being cut off. Literally. Wombs are removed, prostates taken out and breasts chopped off. Ah, if only we loved our body parts more. Maybe they’d stick around. The worst case scenario is people being so disconnected from their sexual organs that they shrivel away. The best case scenario is that you are so in tune with your sexuality and you love your genitals so much that they grow and shine. Breasts can grow. Penises can grow. Vaginas become strong and sentient. I’ve experienced it myself and seen it in my lovers. In fact, this light o’genitalia is what all spiritual leaders talk about when they try not to talk about sex. Surely, it’s what Marianne Williamson was talking about in her famous quote about shining your light: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. So let your light o’genitalia shine. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #lightogenitalia

#thingsilitwithmyvagina The LA Series. Pillars and pomegranate. The pomegranate is thought to be the original apple from the Garden of Eden. Vaginal self-knowledge is crucial for every woman. The more familiar you are with your own sensual responses and comfortable with your body and anatomy, you bring that into bed with your lover. You are more confident in your life in general.
