Kegel exercises at home using sex toys
exercises are one of the possible methods to keep the pelvic floor toned. These exercises are simple voluntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles that support the uterus, urethra, bladder and rectum. They owe their name to the American gynecologist A. Kegel, who conceived and promoted them after discovering their surprising usefulness. The main goal of Kegel exercises is to improve muscle tone by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.
Why should we practice them?
Some factors can debilitate the pelvic muscles: the main culprits are pregnancy, obesity, weight lifting and menopause. The weakening of the pelvic floor can cause more or less important discomfort, which negatively affects both the physical and sexual sphere.
Constantly practicing Kegel exercises can improve the tone and strength of the pelvic floor; for this purpose, Kegel gymnastics finds application in various fields:
Stress urinary incontinence
Anorgasmia (inability to reach orgasm)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia
Kegel exercises are completely “discreet”. They can be performed anywhere, and at any time of the day: sitting, standing, lying down or while bathing.
To perform them you need simple controlled movements.
Completely empty the bladder. Performing Kegel exercises with a full bladder can weaken the pubococcygeus muscle and cause subsequent difficulties in completely emptying the bladder.
Contract the pelvic floor muscles for 5-10 seconds.
Slowly release the above muscles for the same period of time.
Do not move your legs, glutes or abdominal muscles during Kegel gymnastics.
Repeat the series 10 times, 2-3 times throughout the day.
Initially, it can be difficult to contract the pelvic muscles for 10 seconds: if this is the case, it is recommended to start gradually, first contracting the muscles for 4-5 seconds, and then gradually increase the contraction time up to 10 seconds.
Some people struggle to identify the pubococcygeus muscle: to recognize and identify this muscle, it is advisable to stop the flow of urine for a few seconds while urinating.
On medical advice, it is possible to use some devices or tools, useful for identifying the pubococcygeus muscle and facilitating its exercise. The most used medical devices for this purpose are barbells, vaginal cones and specific springs.
Kegel exercises: the devices
Kegel exercises can be done with the help of particular devices designed specifically to train specific muscles. It is possible to buy devices for Kegel exercises also online and there are different types.
Of course, the material is of great importance, since it comes into contact with one of the most delicate areas of the body. One of the materials used is hypoallergenic medical silicone. Devices made of ceramic and made of other materials are also available. Typically, Kegel exercise devices also have specific programs for pelvic floor rehabilitation.
There are also devices for Kegel exercises that have balls of different weights, to be used in progression as the rehabilitation progresses. Not only that, there are also electronic devices, in which the pelvic floor is stimulated directly by the device that is controlled via a remote control.
To learn more and get inspiration, you can also consult one of the many books, often accompanied by DVDs, on the pelvic floor and its rehabilitation.
Kegel exercises and sexual pleasure
The effect of Kegel gymnastics in the sexual sphere is extraordinary: both men and women can obtain an excellent ability to control orgasm and a greater awareness of the functionality of their genital apparatus.
The advantages of Kegel exercises in the sexual field are:
Control of ejaculation.
Kegel exercises are included in the list of remedies for premature ejaculation. The dominance of the pubococcygeus muscle in the male allows to manage the ejaculatory impulses, postponing orgasm.
Maintaining an erection.
Kegel exercises are an effective remedy for erectile dysfunction when practiced regularly. This is confirmed by a study reported in a prestigious scientific journal, the Journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons. Exercises aimed at strengthening the pelvic muscles help restore erectile function in men who struggle to achieve/maintain an erection.
Increased female sensitivity and pleasure during intercourse
Easier achievement of orgasm : strengthening the pelvic muscles can promote multiple orgasms. Kegel gymnastics is effective for anorgasmia, especially female ones.
Amplification of partner’s pleasure during sexual intercourse.
In conclusion, the training of the pubococcygeus muscle is very useful for strengthening the pelvic floor: by exercising this muscle daily, even several times a day, it is possible to obtain concrete results within a few weeks. Some patients, however, observe the first improvements in the sexual sphere only after 3-4 months, even by practicing Kegel exercises regularly.
