Bet­ter sex

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - HEALTH REPORT -

A 2010 study pub­lished in the In­ter­na­tional Urog­y­ne­col­ogy Jour­nal found that women with strong pelvic oor mus­cles re­ported bet­ter or­gasms and greater arousal than those with a weaker pelvic oor ( where sen­sa­tion and sat­is­fac­tion may be de­creased). If you’ve had chil­dren or are ex­pect­ing, a sep­a­rate 2010 study from Mar­mara Univer­sity in Istanbul, Turkey, found that sex­ual arousal, lu­bri­ca­tion and or­gasm were higher in women who did pelvic oor ex­er­cises af­ter child­birth than those who didn’t. Ex­perts be­lieve that stronger mus­cles mean in­creased sen­si­tiv­ity when you’re hav­ing sex. Ta­nia Boler, founder of Elvie, a new tness app which works your pelvic oor, says, ‘Ul­ti­mately, a strong pelvic oor means in­creased blood ow to this re­gion, your mus­cles be­come toned, and the end re­sult is a height­ened sense of plea­sure.’
