The next time you’re at the gym complaining because the weights are too heavy and you can’t lift it, just know that there is a woman out there that can lift stuff with her vagina. That’s right: her vagina.
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina The Bali Series: The mighty coconut. The young, or green coconut is my favorite to drink and eat. The water is sweet (so sweet it tastes like it has sugar added) and the flesh is melt-in-your-mouth soft. It was called the “kalpa vriksha,” which is Sanskrit for “the tree that supplies all that is needed to live,” in ancient India. Everything in it is full of beneficial and medicinal properties: from the water to the oil to the cream to the milk to the husk. Even the fronds of the palm can be used to wrap packages (see my last lift!) It also oils up bodies real good. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #coconuts #tropics #bali #indonesia
Woman are already tougher than us because they push humans out of them, but now 44-year-old Kim Anami is showing the world that she can lift stuff up with her vagina too. On Kim’s Instagram she calls herself a “Holistic sex + relationship expert,” and “Vaginal weight lifter.” That resume must be one fun read.
Kim travels the world holding seminars and educating people on how powerful the vagina can be.
#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 it’s 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, I’m 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. I’m 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 it’s obviously not so fine. It’s 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
You may be wondering why a person would want to lift anything with their genitals, but Kim says that it has improved her sex life.
“My sex life has improved radically and when I started weight lifting with my vagina my partner noticed the difference immediately.I can have multiple orgasms, I’d say ten or fifteen orgasms in a row. I can have an energy orgasm, which means an orgasm with takes place without touch, meaning I can have sex with my partner when he’s on the other side of the room or even on the other side of the planet. So even hearing his voice or just thinking about him, I can have an orgasm.”
Kim actually calls her weightlifting talents “Vaginal Kung Fu,” which may or may not be a porn video I once saw a few hundred times.
Here, I present, the first of the #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #eurotour: Me, at the Berlin Wall, lifting a piece of the former wall. With my vagina. It’s the Great Wall of Vagina! Much of my work is about breaking down sexual barriers: opening conversations about sex and daring to say the things that deep down (very deep, like cervix deep) people want to hear and say, but generally don’t. Then there is the literal work, the opening of the genitals. The de-armoring, the breaking down of past trauma and the healing of it. There are the emotional walls that we erect to protect ourselves. The choice to fear instead of open. Because it feels safer to not trust. We’ve been burned before. Until all of these barriers come down, until we soften and chip away at the hardness, we can’t fully feel. We can’t fully love. We can’t fully orgasm. And we can’t fully live. Over the years, on my own journey to wholeness, it’s been a constant work in progress to open, and to stay open. When you do the work, the deep, internal work of breaking down your own self-imposed barriers, you’ll find a whole other universe on the other side. The world, just like an open and trusting vagina, opens up to you and nourishes you. And that’s where the gold is: the deepest love, the best orgasms and the feeling that all is right in the universe and yourself. When you dare to open and stay open.

Kim says she can lift up to ten pounds of various items. So keep on lifting, Kim. Check out some more pictures of Kim and her talented vagina below.
The LA Series. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina And the Oscar goes to… My vagina. Best Supporting Vagina winner, for sure. I’m standing on Hollywood Boulevard, on the Walk of Fame. My vagina is hovering over the “star” of Hedy Lamarr. Some historical vagina for you: Hedy is the reason why most of you are even reading this right now. You could say she’s the most influential woman of our modern age. Not only was she touted in her day as being the “world’s most beautiful woman” by Louis B. Meyer, she had the first non-pornographic onscreen orgasm in the 1933 silent film “Ecstasy.” My kinda girl. It gets better. Tiring of acting, she took up inventing. Lamarr co-developed a frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology that is the basis for modern wifi communication. She registered the patent with her cofounder in 1942 and was inducted into the Inventor’s Hall of Fame in 2014. Beauty, brains, vagina. Even I’m impressed. #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu #vaginalsuperpowers #bestsupportingvagina #theoscargoesto #oscars
#thingsiliftwithmyvagina The Bali Series Lifting rambutans with my vagina. In the rice paddies. “Rambut” is Indonesian for “hairy.” This hot red fruit has little green hairs on the outside of it. Inside is a fleshy, sweet fruit. It all sounds like a sexual metaphor, doesn’t it? #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #tropicalfruitsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu
#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 The LA Series With donuts. These gluten-free, coconut-sugar sweetened, organic donuts—suspended from the depths of my vagina—are from Cafe Gratitude. The Maple and Coconut Bacon ones are insane. #glutenfree #healthyeating #vegan #sugarfree #coconuts #thingsiliftwithmyvagina #vaginalkungfu
