Kegels – Everything you need to know

Introducing Your New Orgasmic Workout – Kegels 

The concept of Kegels and Kegel exercises have been around since the 1940s when it was discovered by Dr Arnold Kegel. For years we believed that it was something you only had to pay attention to when you were older or after childbirth. Fast forward 80 years and we now know that having a strong pelvic floor can cause orgasms to be stronger and can aid in your journey to be a squirting queen.

In our guide, whether you have a vulva or a penis, we’re going to run through everything you need to know in order to get those pelvic floors in tip-top condition.

What are Kegels?

The term ‘Kegel exercises’ or ‘Kegels’ was coined by Dr Arnold Kegel in the 40s. Essentially it’s a clench and release exercise that you can do to tone your pelvic floor. Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles that supports the bladder. If you have a weak pelvic floor you might find that you pee a little bit when you sneeze or jump around.

Why it’s good to strengthen your Pelvic Floor?

There are so many reasons why Kegel exercises should be part of your daily routine.

  • Firstly you’re strengthening the muscles around your bladder so it helps you to control it. If you’re finding those vigorous movements such as jumping around or sneezing are causing you to pee a little bit, then it’s probably because your pelvic floor is weak. It will also come in super handy when you’re desperate for a wee and need to hold it.
  • It’s been widely reported that strengthening your pelvic floor through Kegel exercises leads to more frequent and intense orgasms.
  • AND as if you need another reason to try it, sexpert and Squirting World Record Holder, Lola Jean talks about the importance of a strong pelvic floor when trying to squirt.

You don’t have to wait till you have kids or when you’re older, prevention is better than cure and there’s no harm in exercising them every now and then, no matter what age you are.

Kegel Exercises if you have a vulva

The beauty of kegel exercises is that you don’t need to go to a gym, you can literally do it wherever and whenever.

If you’re not sure where your pelvic floor muscles are, the best way to find them is to go to the toilet. When you’re midway through your pee, stop. That action of stopping is engaging your pelvic floor muscles. Once you know the feeling you can pretty much do them anywhere. I’m doing them right now as I type this.

Try and do it now and see how easy or difficult you find it. Contract your pelvic floor and hold it for 10 seconds. How was it? 

There are lots of exercises that you can do without any equipment such as:

  1. Contract your pelvic floor muscles for 5 seconds
  2. Relax for 5 seconds
  3. Repeat 10 times, 3 times a day. (I usually associate it with an action, e.g every time I go and make a coffee).

Putting your new-found bodybuilder pelvic floor to the test, when you’re having intercourse contract your muscles around his penis for an extra layer of bliss.

Kegel Balls

If you want to take things up a gear and really train those muscles you can get some kegel balls.

Our favourites are from Je Joue and you can find them here. They come in three different weights and an instruction booklet with different exercises. You just pop them in and away you go. They not only look beautiful but they use body-safe materials which is something to definitely look for when purchasing a set.

Kegel Exericses for Men 

Kegel exercises aren’t just for those with a vagina, they have similar benefits for men. If you ever get a little bit of dribble after you pee, these are for you. They’re also used to help premature ejaculation, as a weak pelvic floor might impair your ability to delate ejaculation.

Similar to those with a vagina, to locate your pelvic floor just go for a pee. Halfway through, stop. You’ll engage your pelvic floor muscles and feel where they are.

The same routine as women:

  1. Contract your pelvic floor muscles for 5 seconds
  2. Relax for 5 seconds
  3. Repeat 10 times, 3 times a day. (Try doing it every time you brush your teeth or make a coffee).

 

So there you have it, our guide to strong pelvic floors. Go try it and out and see where you are in a month or so.
