Kegels specifically strive to strengthen the pelvic floor (also known as PC) muscles, which support your bladder, uterus and bowels.
How it Helps: “While the reason is still being studied, research has shown there is a direct correlation between well-toned PC muscles and the intensity of orgasms in both women and men,” says Dr. Charlie Glickman, education manager for Good Vibrations. Many people find that keeping their PC muscles toned also increases the length of their orgasms, and some men find that their erections are also much firmer, he adds.
DIY Directions: To locate your pelvic floor muscles, imagine that you are trying to stop the flow of urine, and try holding that sensation, recommends Dr. Glickman. Once you’ve identified how to contract these muscles, hold your contraction for five seconds, and then relax. Try repeating this process five times in a row. Work up to three sets of 15 repetitions daily.
