Get your Kegal On!

19 Sep

Did you know? The sales of Ben-Wa Balls (and other items like them, such as Pleasure Pearls, and Kegal Pods) have increased by over 300% since the release of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Kegal Exercises and Strengthening Your Pelvic Floor muscles can be one of the most important things a woman can do for her sexual health and well-being.

Kegal is one of the most basic and easiest ways to enjoy a more satisfying sex life.

Kegal is a “sexercise“- a sexual exercise that improves your capacity for sexual pleasure- and is for everyone regardless of age or sex. When done on a regular basis, they can assist you with achieving a quicker, more intense climax, and benefit your partner by being able to tighten harder around his penis. There are four Kegal exercises that include all the groups of muscles that are involved: Contract and Hold, Flutter, The Elevator, and The Workout. Developed by Dr. Arnold Kegal to strengthen the vaginal muscles, the exercises are most widely known as an aid in preparation for a baby. A toned muscle will stretch more easily and recover more easily after childbirth. As we age, these exercises are also helpful in maintaining tone in order to avoid certain medical issues and sexual difficulties. So, given the benefits of enhanced orgasm and the health gains possible, doing Kegal exercises is one of those six minute a day exercises that really does deliver.

If you spend 2 minutes doing these sets three times a day, you will very likely feel a difference in your ability to contract in about 2 weeks. It doesn’t take a lot of time, just a lot of remembering. Maybe try setting an alarm or reminders with your phone. 🙂

Kegal Exercises:

  • Contract and Hold– Squeeze this muscle group and hold it for a count of ten. Then contract and hold for another count of ten. Continue doing this.
  • Flutter– Contract the muscle group as quickly as you can. These won’t be large squeezes, just rapid light ones. Stop, take a rest- and then do it again.
  • The elevator– Imagine that there’s a little elevator in your pelvic region and that you want to raise it up floor-by-floor to the top floor. so, start at the group floor and go up to the first floor, then up the second floor, and the last, to the third floor. Then gradually allow the “elevator” to go back down stopping at each floor. Once you get to the ground floor, completely relax the muscles you’ve just exercised.
  • The workout- For even better and quicker results, having something to squeeze will make Kegal exercise easier to do and feel more natural. Using weighted balls such as Ben Wa, Pleasure Pearls, or a Kegal Pod, insert only one ball or side at first. Squeeze and release for 2 minutes. When you start to notice greater muscle strength, add the second ball or side.

Passion Parties offers three products that can be used as weights by women who really want to work their PC (pubococcygeus) muscles. The Ben Wa Balls, Pleasure Pearls, and Kegal Pod add an enhanced level to Kegals. Kegal Aids from Passion Parties: Kegal Exercisers

Finding Your Vaginal PC Muscle

The PC muscle is a hammock-like muscle that stretches from the pubic bone to the tailbone and forms the pelvic floor. Deciphering which muscles are used for Kegal exercise is as easy as going to the bathroom. Simply start and stop your stream of urine several times and you’ve found your PC muscles. When doing kegals, try to only use these muscles. At first you may contract your chest, abdominal, back and anal muscles, too, but with practice you’ll be able to focus solely on the PCs.

To strengthen the muscles deeper in the vagina, you can use Kegal  during sex play. Simply squeeze your dildo or partner’s penis as many times as you can. You can also use the Ben Wa balls or similar products. Have something to squeeze will make kegal exercises easier and more natural.
