Do you know what kegel exercises are? Alright, if you do, you can skip the next paragraph. If not, listen up.
Your kegel muscles are basically your pelvic floor muscles. They’re heavily involved in anything bathroom or bedroom related (waste expulsion, orgasm, etc.). Kegel exercises are exercises designed to strengthen these muscles, which often don’t get strengthened on a daily basis. Having weak kegel muscles can cause all sorts of problems. Exercising them, by contrast, can relieve all sorts of problems.
By all reports, kegel exercises produce amazing results. People who do them see:
- Improvements with delayed ejaculation
- Improvements with premature ejaculation
- Longer orgasms
- Stronger orgasms
- Better bladder control
- Stronger erections
- Tighter vaginas
- Better and/or quicker sexual response (arousal)
- Easier pregnancy, birthing and post-partum recovery
In short, whether you’re a man or woman, Kegel exercises will likely improve your life in some fairly dramatic way. Yet, most of us don’t do them. I know I don’t consistently exercise those muscles, despite seeing info about them all over the place.
So, I decided I’m going to do something about it. I’m going to try doing Kegel exercises every day for 30 days, starting October 1st. Then, while announcing my decision to our secret Facebook group, you know, because telling people adds accountability, I had a thought. Maybe others want to do it too.
So, I’ve started a Facebook group for any who want to join. The intent of the group is to share tips and tricks, apps, routines, encouragement, support and reminders about doing your Kegel exercises. I keep intending to do them and forget, so I figured this way we’d have a bunch of people reminding each other.
As well, if this group ends up following the pattern of any of my other Facebook groups, it tends to open up into a discussion group about marital intimacy just because there are so many likeminded, sex-positive Christians in one place. Turns out we Christians love to talk about sex if we have a safe space to do so.
Anyways, if you want to see what Kegel exercise can do for your life (sex or otherwise), come join the group. It’s free and short term. What do you have to lose?
