Luann de Lesseps Tried a "Kegel Throne," and We Have So Many Questions

What even is a kegel throne, exactly?

Luann de Lesseps is waxing poetic about a spa treatment with a very interesting name. The Real Housewives of New York City yogi stopped by her friend (and RHONY alum) Cindy Barshop's natural vaginal rejuvenation spa VSpot Medi-Spa yesterday to try something called a "kegel throne." 

So, uh ... what's that? Turns out that name is kind of self-explanatory: A kegel throne a special chair called the BTL Emsella that uses electromagnetic technology to stimulate the pelvic floor. “The goal of the Emsella is to treat incontinence early so surgery isn’t necessary,” Carolyn Delucia, MD, ob-gyn and medical director at VSPOT, told Health back in March. Apparently it creates thousands of Kegel-like contractions in a single session.

Wow! Luann even wrote an acrostic poem on Instagram about her experience (read her caption below). "It was amazing. It’s hard to keep up with the Kegel exercise so this is so helpful," she said. 

Here's a video of Cindy giving the kegel throne a whirl earlier this year, while being interviewed by another RHONY alum, Jill Zarin.

“I feel electromagnetic pulses going up my vaginal canal. It’s like doing 11,000 kegels in 28 minutes," Barshop says in the video. "It actually feels a little good." This is one buzzy treatment.
