Why Kegels Aren't Just for Women. Learn the 2023 Version on How Men Benefit From this Pelvic Floor Exercise too. And Surprisingly, there’s a Sex Toy for That!
Why Kegels aren’t just a one sex fits all exercise
While this article is for both men and women, if you are a man reading this, there is a lot of beneficial information to cover, so stick around until the end. For years when people mentioned Kegels, automatically it seemed like it was more an exercise for women. But, men are missing out if they don’t do this as well. So, how do Kegel exercises help men? Let’s dive in!
First, what are Kegel exercises? These exercises are done to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. They help prevent and improve bladder leakage but also help prevent the slippage of poop or stools from expelled gas (a.k.a. sharting) and the bonus of better orgasms.
For women, they can also help prevent the uterus, bladder and bowel from dropping down into the vaginal area. And can help during vaginal child birth.
For men, they help support the bladder, bowel and sexual function. They can provide longer lasting erections, better orgasms and even help straighten a crooked cock. In a 2014 Therapeutic Advances in Urology study, it was estimated that around 82% of men who experienced premature ejaculation improved their latency time just after 12 weeks of Kegels. They can also make your erections point further up for men who’s penises point outward or down when erect.
You can also perform Kegels during sex to delay cumming. That’s because, when you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles, you are sending your brain the signal that you want to pee (don’t worry, you won’t!). And since your penis has only one urethra, it puts a hold on ejaculating. When you are getting close, perform five quick Kegels and you should last longer. This trick also makes you experience a longer buildup and stronger orgasms.
That’s great news, as so many men and women suffer from these issues. Besides the health benefits, the sexual benefits are a major reason to give this a try.
It can be a real intimacy and confidence killer to last a few minutes and the magic is all over, or have a crooked cock, wondering what she’s thinking and if it’s possible to hit her g-spot during intercourse.
These things can end up leaving you feeling insecure about yourself and your partners sexual satisfaction. It can be a big relief to know that there is help that doesn’t require surgery. All it takes is a little discipline and dedication.
