Why You Shouldn't Skip Kegel Day

When thinking of daily exercise, many people often imagine pumping iron at the gym, sweaty group classes, or pounding the pavement while out for a run. But what if we told you that the most important exercise doesn’t require a pricey gym membership, skin-tight activewear, or even working up a sweat? Heck, you don’t even have to leave the bed to get your pump on!

If you haven’t guessed it already, we’re talking about Kegel or pelvic floor exercises. Now, to make a game out of it - squeeze every time you read ‘Kegel’ for the rest of the article.

A brief history of Kegels

Cast your mind back to 1952 when famed gynecologist Arnold Kegel made the incredibly exciting/groundbreaking discovery that Kegel exercises could help women to experience easier, more intense, and more frequent climaxes.

Fast forward to the present day and we’re sure you’ve pretty much all heard of Kegel exercises at this point and maybe gone so far as to try them out yourself. It’s certainly no secret that a perfectly timed squeeze around the old todger can send a guy over the edge!

If you’re not quite sure how to activate your Kegels, try to stop your flow midstream while having a pee - these are your pelvic floor muscles and the ones you should be concentrating on contracting while doing your exercises. It works for both the ladies and the lads too, so get squeezing so you can do more pleasing!

What are the benefits of Kegel exercises?

Training your Kegels is a one-stop training to pleasure town! Besides making female orgasms more explosive and more frequent, Kegel exercises can increase male pleasure by making your muffin feel nice and tight.

Plus, the lads who practice their Kegels regularly can experience better control over blowing their wad as well as stronger boners... There’s even the potential to have multiple gland finales without ejaculating! The sky is truly the limit when you take control of your Kegels.

So how should I train them?

Once you’ve figured out how to activate your pelvic floor muscles, it’s time to get your crunch on and to put them to work.

When embarking on any new exercise routine, the trick is to start small and work your way up to bigger things. Start by clenching your Kegels for three seconds at a time with a 10 second rest in between. Repeat this routine throughout the day and slowly build your way up to a five second hold, a 10 second hold, and even longer!

These little beauties are super discreet, so you can practice your Kegels anytime, anywhere!

The key to creating a lasting habit can be as simple as setting a daily reminder on your phone or downloading an app with exercises tailored to your needs.

If you’ve already nailed your Kegel routine, then step up the resistance with some jiggle balls and Kegel toners. Use these nifty toys to tone your pelvic floor and get you off at the same time - it’s a win-win!

Say no to sweaty benches and lining up for the squat rack - with Kegels, you can do them wherever and whenever you like without even breaking a sweat. Have you ever popped your cookies while doing a chest press? Need we say more…?

What else can I do with Kegels?

Besides lifting some pretty impressive weight (we’re not kidding, look it up…), you can try a little-known sexual technique called ‘pompoir’. Rather than you and your kinky companion going at it like rabbits, pompoir requires both partners to sit still while the person with a vagina uses their impressive vaginal muscles to stroke and pulse upon their partner’s pecker. It doesn’t stop there. As well as learning to squeeze the peen, you can master pushing, pulling, and twisting it all with the power of your poonani.

So if those early morning gym seshes aren’t tickling your pickle, have a quick Kegel sesh and your exercise could end in ecstatic bliss!

Knowledge is power

While these exercises may not lead to washboard abs or buns of steel, they’ll absolutely make you feel like a sex God, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide which you prefer...

And for reference, the word ‘Kegel’ was used 14 times during this article, so you’re already well on your way to having the knack for your Kegel clenches.
