Just when you think you know the world, it throws another yorker to completely disarm you and make you think “I’m not sure I belong here“.
What is it today? A man eats puppies because he finds it cathartic? Babies are having sex education classes when they’re still in the womb? No. A woman weight-lifts with her vagina. Obviously.

I’m going to put this out there… people with strong arms unnerve me. And, you know, I’m okay with vaginas but I could be better. Mix the two together…
44-year-old intimacy coach,Kim Anami, is the culprit. She can hold up anything with her vagina, such ascoconuts, surfboards, chandeliers, gym weights and more. She ties the object in question to a jade egg which she then inserts her vagina and that’s when the “work out” begins. I’ve not even touched a surfboard in real life. Are they heavy?
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kim said:
“Sex for me is a personal growth tool. It is healing, revitalising and self-actualising. Its 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 practising 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.”
#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 didnt 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 shotdon’t miss the weight between my legs. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #vaginalweightlifter A photo posted by Kim Anami (@kimanami) on
“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. Its not just a skill set reserved for some special Thai vaginas.”
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina The Bali Series Infinity pool + coconut frond basket in the hills north of Ubud. With mist. Once you get north of Ubud in Bali, even more magic happens. The crowds thin out and its easier to tune into the deep, spiritual energy of the island. We got up before dawn to capture the sunrise light for this photo. The morning mist is still hanging behind us, and to the right, through the mist, you can see a local temple, which is perched on the hillside. Today, from my vagina, Im lifting a bungkus. This is the Indonesian word for a take-out container. Back in the day, when you ordered food to go from a local food stall or warung (those food carts are all the ancient rage in Asia), they would wrap it up for you in a banana or palm leaf and send you on your way. Im lifting a very ornate version of this with many coconut fronds woven together to create a beautiful take-out basket. I actually got this from @alchemybali in Ubud, to carry a host of raw, vegan delights in. Before the onset of plastic, it was fine to throw these over your shoulder into the bushes. Now, people do the same with plastic, and its obviously not so fine. Its great to see a return to the more sustainable ways of old. Including the resurgence of the 5000-year-old practice of Vaginal Kung Fu!! #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #bali #indonesia A photo posted by Kim Anami (@kimanami) on
In a way, you have to respect her. Evengynaecologists, such as Dr Stephen A Rabin, agree it has health benefits…
“The idea of strengthening the vaginal muscles is a good one because having more blood flow, more innervation and more sensation is always a good thing down there.
It can help with urinary cognates in control, it can help with sexual satisfaction with both partners and it can help with prevention of prolapse which is where the organs are actually falling out due to gravity and childbirth, strain and even from being overweight.
Physically in terms of being able to strengthen the vagina to actually hold weights of this magnitude the vagina muscles in the pelvic floor are like a basket.
When you strengthen these muscles, to get them fuller and bigger you are increasing your muscles down there that also keep the vagina closed so that whatever is inside the vagina attached to the string can carry the weight you put on the other end of the string.”
Good luck to her. She seems content in her skill.
