How Kegels Improve Your Sex Life
by Dustys Stores on Sep 29, 2022
Ah, the Kegel. The weird name for an exercise so simple that nearly anyone can do them. And while we wouldn’t claim that doing say, wind sprints, can improve your sex life, we can absolutely claim that both men and women who do Kegels have better sex.
What’s A Kegel?
Kegel exercises are done to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which are the set of muscles used to stop the flow of urine mid-stream. Strengthening these muscles helps prevent accidental bathroom issues, but they also improve orgasms. Once you get used to contracting these muscles, you can do them wherever and whenever you like, but doing five Kegels a day for three seconds each is all you need to reap the benefits.
How Do Kegels Help With Sex?
For women, Kegels help tighten the vagina so they’re especially helpful after childbirth. Some medical journals also report that women who do consistent Kegel exercises are able to have orgasms in positions that never did it for them before. They also increase blood flow to your vagina, which helps produce natural lubrication and increases sensation during sex. Want to try something new? Try doing Kegels during sex. Some men can orgasm just by feeling the contractions.
For men, Kegels not only help manage prostate pain, but they also help control ejaculation, increase how long you can stay hard, and help prevent erectile dysfunction.
It’s this simple. Stronger pelvic floor muscles mean bigger and better orgasms.
