The secret to boosting sexual enjoyment may be to strengthen the pelvic floor. Dr Sara Reardon, commonly known as The Vagina Whisperer, is a pelvic floor physical therapist who is board-certified. She shares her wisdom and pointers for obtaining a larger, better O.
The pelvic floor is made up of two layers of muscles that form a basket at the base of the pelvis that holds your pelvic organs (uterus, rectum, and bladder) in place. Dr Reardon explains why the magic lamp has to be rubbed.
“The vaginal opening and the clitoris are connected to the outer layer.” The outer muscle layers and the clitoris become engorged due to increased blood flow during excitement. As arousal increases, the muscles continue to contract, sustaining blood flow in the region.
The pelvic floor muscles tense and release cyclically as you peak during orgasm.”
“To achieve an orgasm, your pelvic floor muscles must tighten to sustain blood flow during arousal,” Dr Reardon adds. They can’t sustain blood flow to the muscles or clitoris with decreased strain, making climaxing difficult. Women who desire to have greater orgasms or (hopefully) many orgasms should strengthen their pelvic floor muscles.
Kegel contractions are the finest technique to strengthen the pelvic floor, according to any woman who has ever picked up a magazine. The most frequent Kegel method is to sit on a marble and tense your pelvic muscles as if lifting it.
Dr Reardon, on the other hand, believes that “many vagina owners are doing Kegels incorrectly, are too weak to perform them, or may have tension and need to relax their pelvic floor muscles first before strengthening.” Some of her favourite exercises for ladies to develop pelvic floor strength so they can see stars during sex are listed below.
Lie on your back and bend your knees. Try doing a Kegel while also squeezing an exercise ball between your knees. Hold the position for 5 seconds.
Try a brief Kegel contraction that involves contracting and relaxing. Work on lengthier Kegel contractions as well, holding them for 5 to 10 seconds before releasing them. Per day, aim for three sets of ten at each pace.
“Often, if we hold our breath or tense our muscles, we can’t engage or contract our pelvic floor for good blood flow,” says Dr Reardon.
Lie on your back and place one hand on either side of your ribs. Inhale, allowing your ribcage to extend like an umbrella. Exhale and let it go. “This can quiet the nervous system, relax your abdomen and pelvic floor, and prime your body to soften into arousal,” she explains.
