Did you know studies have found that extra weight lowers libido? If this is not the case for you the kudos. But if it is, then read on to find out some of the exercises you can do that will help you shed some weight and provide an added bonus: better orgasms!
Getting a good workout can amp up the pleasure for you and your partner. Any activity that gets your heart beating faster and you breathing harder, whether it’s a brisk walk, cycling or dancing can boost blood flow — including to your nether regions. That’s a plus for both genders: stronger erections for men and greater arousal for women.
Harvard researchers found that male and female swimmers in their 60’s had sex lives similar to people 20 years younger. Swimming helps build endurance, boosts blood flow, improves flexibility and strength, and diminishes stress. It also burns some serious calories.
A strong and flexible core boosts almost everything we do. This also includes performing between the sheets. An added bonus? You may be one of the lucky people who can have an orgasm while exercising: something called a “coregasm!!!” It tends to happen during core-strengthening workouts like crunches. Lucky lucky You!
This pose makes you more flexible during lovemaking, says NYC-based exercise physiologist Liz Neporent. It’s an intense hip opener that stretches your inner thighs, groin, and hips. It also releases stress, which can be a real buzz-kill in bed.
If you would like to hold yourself in a “particular position” without your back or legs getting tired or cramped, Neporent recommends practising The Hinge. Lean back at a 45-degree angle for a few seconds before returning upright, and repeat. The move is subtle but creates a lot of staying power.
These exercises were developed to treat urinary incontinence by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. A strong pelvic floor also means explosive orgasms! Women may be more familiar with Kegels, but they also help men prevent premature ejaculation. Studies show most people don’t do them correctly though. Ladies, if you put a finger in your vagina, you should feel a pulling up when you squeeze. Men, your penis will lift up.
Planking works to strengthen the deepest layer of your ab muscles: the core, along with your upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. These muscles help stabilise you so you can stay close to your partner when and where it counts most. Do it once a day, and build up to 60 seconds or longer. If it’s too challenging on your toes, try balancing on your knees instead.
This yoga pose can also act as another form of foreplay. It limbers your spine, helps get you into an even breathing rhythm, and improves focus. Move with a steady flow, so that each rounding up of your spine(the cow part) takes a full breath out and each downward arch(the cat part) takes a full breath in.
This move is a key part of whatever your favourite position in bed might be: be it missionary or cowgirl. But powerful pushes can be exhausting when you’re out of shape. Work your glutes, calves, and hamstrings to build stamina and flexibility. Pelvic thrusts also sculpt your bum, so you look good and feel good.
Couples who sweat together stay together, so make an exercise date with your significant other. Studies show that challenging physical activities spark arousal. You’ll be more attracted to your partner post-workout. So coordinate your actions; for example, run at the same pace or go to a samba class to strengthen your emotional connection even more.
