Pelvic floor exercises help men and women

In our daily lives, most of us are completely unaware of our pelvic muscles. Some people don’t even know where they are. For this reason, we’ll be listing some of the numerous benefits of pelvic floor exercises in this article. A TINY SPOILER: it will directly impact your sex life in many ways!

What is the pelvic floor and where is it?

This set of muscles is located in the lower part of the abdominal cavity and is responsible for holding the pelvic organs — the bladder, urethra, rectum, uterus and vagina or penis — in the proper position. This is very important, since their regular functioning depends on this.

We all know that these organs play the main role during sex, so in order for people to have satisfactory and painless intercourse, it is important to keep the pelvic floor muscles working properly and well trained.

The importance of pelvic floor training for women

As women, we all know how fundamental it is to understand how our body works and to stay healthy, no matter what age.

Women who have had kids and feel that sex isn’t as good as before can improve sensitivity with pelvic floor training and feel the same pleasure as before.

If you sometimes pee a little bit when laughing or sneezing, these exercises can help you too. This is a very common occurrence, yet not normal, so there is nothing better than these workouts to improve your health and stop those seemingly uncomfortable leaks. Besides, they prevent prolapse… which is one of the worst things a woman could experience.

Did you know most of us pee wrong?! I’m referring to our posture. First of all, you shouldn’t be distracted with your phone while you do it. Take this time to relax your mind and pelvic floor and adopt the proper posture in the bathroom. For this, you can place a small bench under your feet.

You might have heard that it is a good pelvic exercise to cut the flow of urine while peeing, but this is completely false. When you go to the bathroom, you should let everything out without interruption.

The correct way to exercise these muscles is by purposefully contracting and relaxing the pelvic muscles, as if you were trying to stop the urine flow. There are hundreds of videos with instructions on YouTube.

Strong pelvic muscles make for more sensitivity to touch and strong orgasms. So pay attention girls, these muscles can give you a lot of worry or a lot of pleasure depending on how you treat them!

Benefits for men

Even though men don’t give birth, they should also take care of their pelvic floor from a young age because this training will bring them a lot of satisfaction and prevent many problems that come with age. It is recommended for men who have sexual dysfunctions such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

Men can start with something as simple as changing the usual way they go to the bathroom. Actually, it is healthier to pee while sitting than standing. As for women, there are many good videos with instructions for men.

So pay attention men, if you want to improve your performance, get your pelvic muscles moving and enjoy the benefits!


And, of course: if you feel that you are experiencing persistent or intense discomfort during sex or urination, consult your health practitioner!
