Sexercise: The Good Lovin' Workout -- iVillage

Inner Strength

If you've had a baby, you've probably already heard of Kegels. These exercises, which call for the rhythmic clenching and unclenching of the pubococcygeal (PC) muscles, strengthen the walls of your vagina, making childbirth easier, incontinence less likely, and orgasms more intense. The PC muscles form the "floor" of your pelvis. They stretch from your pubic bone to your tailbone like an internal hammock. To find them, the next time you go to the bathroom, try stopping your flow of urine in midstream. The muscles you're clenching are your PCs. Kegels consist of nothing more exotic than contracting and relaxing your PCs. You needn't be urinating to perform a Kegel. In fact, they can be done anytime, anywhere. Simply contract your muscles, hold for a count of five, and release. Repeat 10 times. Most experts recommend that you repeat this cycle of Kegels eight to ten times per day.

Although it can be difficult to remember to do Kegels on a daily basis, the benefits are amazing. Stronger PC muscles can lead to more intense orgasms, multiple orgasms, enhanced sexual sensation and even G-spot sensitivity! Your partner will also enjoy your "grip" when you internally flex your newfound muscles.

Be More Flexible

Stretching can prevent injury, increase range of motion around a joint, and lead you to discover some novel sexual positions. Take a few yoga classes and get comfortable with your limbs in new and unexpected contortions. The more choices you and your partner have, the more creative you can get!
