Tone Your Pelvic Muscles

Cardio is good for your heart. Resistance training is good for your bones. And kegel exercises are good for sex. Not only do they help to relieve urinary incontinence, but they also enhance orgasms (and for men they may also enhance an erection). Better orgasms, or an easier time reaching orgasm, can be an important step to being sexually satisfied. But how do you do kegel exercises?

Kegel exercises target and strengthen our pelvic floor muscles. The exercise itself is quick, and because it's discreet, it's easy to do anywhere. To begin, contract your pelvic floor muscles. Keep them tight for five to ten seconds and then release them for five to ten seconds. Repeat five times. For best results do them two to three times a day, five minutes at a time.

Trouble finding your pelvic floor muscles? While you shouldn't practice kegel exercises while relieving your bladder, you'll know you're working the correct muscles if you can stop (or slow down) and start your urine stream.
