An ‘intimacy coach’ who can lift coconuts, household objects – and even a surfboard – using her vagina, believes that vaginal weightlifting can empower women, cure depression and even replace Botox.
Kim Anami teaches ‘Vaginal Kung Fu’, and is a believer in the power that every woman holds between her legs.
The 44-year-old has travelled around the world demonstrating her unique abilities and impressive vaginal muscles.
Kim, who splits her time between LA and Bali, ties a thin piece of string to a jade egg, which she then inserts into her vagina.
The other side of the string is attached to the object she will be lifting – using nothing more than her super-strong vaginal muscles.
‘Sex for me is a personal growth tool. It is healing, revitalising and self-actualising,’ explains Kim. ‘It’s just part of a healthy lifestyle.
‘I have always felt very aware of my sexual energy and had an interest in how to make sex even better.
‘I first started practicing what I now call Vaginal Kung Fu – the mastery of all things vagina – 20 years ago. It is based on ancient Taoist practices women used 5,000 years ago to strengthen the pelvic floor and increase sexual pleasure.’
The expert has reached millions of people through her Instagram where she shares snaps of herself weightlifting a multitude of objects.
She has also had thousands sign up to her online courses where she provides information and instruction on her unique brand of weightlifting.
Kim believes there are multiple health and emotional benefits from the unconventional practice.
‘Having a strong pelvic floor and vaginal muscles helps with everything from increasing libido, orgasmic potential and lubrication, eliminating incontinence, and preventing pelvic organ prolapse – especially after childbirth,’ says Kim.
‘The practice creates an overall lift in the body – even a face lift. I have had clients stop using Botox because they took up vaginal weightlifting.
‘Overall, a woman becomes more connected to her sexual energy in a way that is tangible. She feels more enlivened and confident. Even depression can be eradicated by becoming more connected with your sexuality.’
Kim has lifted a collection of weird and wonderful objects – and recently lifted an Oscar with her vagina on Hollywood Boulevard.
‘I like to lift objects which are indigenous to the areas that I visit. I have lifted a green coconut, a pineapple and a bunch of mangoes in Bali. I love tropical fruit.
‘I aim to lift objects that have an educational component to them and are part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
‘I lifted gluten-free organic doughnuts and cold-pressed juices in Los Angeles, and a surfboard at Venice Beach.
‘Overall, I want women to know what their vaginas can actually do. My assertion is that the normal, healthy baseline for every woman is to be able to ping pong balls from her vagina. It’s not just a skill set reserved for some special Thai vaginas.’
She insists that there are no dangers as long as you are sensible and build up slowly.
‘You start small and work your way up like you would in any weightlifting regime. You wouldn’t just go and bench press 300lb.
‘I practice several times a week. A woman could safely practice every day if she wanted to.
‘In my eight-week online Vaginal Kung Fu course, we also focus on strengthening the core and other supporting muscles.
‘I teach a veritable vag-cylopedia of all things vagina, including emotional and psychological components of healing and empowerment.’
