What is a Love Egg and how do Love Eggs work?

Okay, first things first. You might be wondering what on earth a love egg actually is. Don’t be fooled by how small these things look as they can feel pretty amazing.

A love egg is a sex toy that’s inserted into the vagina, a lot like a Kegel ball. Most will vibrate, and they’ll be controlled by a remote or even a smartphone app - making them perfect for use alone or with a partner. Check out our favourite remote control love eggs here.

The remote control (or app controller) makes using a love egg especially fun for couples, with one partner able to take charge over the other’s pleasure. Whether it’s wired, non-wired or app-controlled, having the power in one partner’s hand and the egg nestled next to the other’s G-spot means there’s plenty of pleasure on offer.

Most love eggs are wearable (and wonderful), with petite and discreet designs that even allow you to wear them outside the privacy of your own home. Whichever type of vibrating love egg you have in your personal pocket, read on to discover the best tips and tricks for sensational sunny-side-up satisfaction every time you play…

Ready to give it a go yourself? We’ll explain more in our step-by-step tips below, but sometimes it’s better to show rather than tell. See for yourself in our handy (or, rather, hands-free) video guide...

How to use a Love Egg

Now you’ve got to grips with what love eggs actually are and how they work, it’s time to get to the fun part: how to use love eggs.

Using a Love Egg: Lay on the Lube


Although vibrating love eggs can be used externally as clitoral vibrators, their primary use is as an insertable vibe that sits inside the vagina, near the G-spot.

If you want to enjoy your love egg toy to the fullest (who wouldn’t?), then it’s helpful to warm up with some foreplay or masturbation before you insert it. And, of course, it’s always necessary to use plenty of lube.

Take it from people who’ve been there. According to Lovehoney customer SaveTheReviews: “Sliding it in was easy with a little lube. The tail of the vibrator sat just nicely for ease of removal.”

Plastic love eggs can be used with all kinds of lubricant, but you’ll never go wrong with a water-based one as this is compatible with all types of love eggs, including the high-end silicone ones.

Using a Love Egg: Tone your internal muscles


As well as being peak pleasure providers, vibrating love eggs are also brilliant for toning your pelvic floor muscles. When a love egg is inserted, your vaginal walls automatically squeeze to hold it in place, helping to strengthen the muscles at the same time. These are the same muscles that contribute to orgasms, so a stronger pelvic floor is a winner all round.

Our customers agree too: “I can also use it for Kegel exercises, whether it is switched on or not. If you have it switched on and squeeze those muscles, the egg provides a more rumbly sensation, which I love,” says Purring-Pussy.

Our top tip? Try popping your vibrating love egg inside before taking on a menial task around the house. It’ll add some sweet sensations to your tidying up and contribute to stronger, more intense orgasms in the future. Just remember to make sure you always leave your love egg’s removal cord or loop outside your body so it’s simple to retrieve after play.

Using a Love Egg: Share the excitement


Just like breakfast for two at your favourite restaurant or a king-sized bed with freshly-changed sheets, vibrating love eggs are sensational when shared with your partner. What foreplay could be better than one person controlling the remote while the other squirms in anticipation?

Let your partner control the vibrations while they watch you lie back and enjoy. Alternatively, try wearing your vibrating love egg during oral sex for truly mind-blowing stimulation.

And the fun doesn’t have to stop there. Why not dare to take your love egg out in public too? Since love eggs are generally quiet toys, the vibrations shouldn't be heard in a crowded club or in the cinema. Taking a love egg out and about means you can both experience the taboo thrill of being aroused in public - and no one else needs to be any the wiser!

The anticipation will be positively palpable too, as one customer knows all too well: “It was so much fun and exciting not knowing when or what speed/pattern he would make vibrate inside me,” says Salou1987.

Using a love egg: Try it as a clit vibrator too


We’ve mostly talked about wearing your vibrating love egg internally, but many of them are fantastic for clitoral stimulation too - and who doesn’t love a bit of versatile delight?

Some love egg toys vibrate in the body of the egg as well as the tail, so you can use the tail on your clit while the egg teases your G-spot.

“Not only was the vibration intense inside me, but to rub it along my clit brought on yet another intense orgasm,” says customer Lilkimfox.

You can even try wearing a small vibrating love egg inside your knickers for a quick and easy alternative to buying an underwear vibe. Lay back with your wired vibrating love egg in place and take advantage of being able to change the settings with just a tap of your finger.
