A Two-Minute Solution To Solving Your Lack of Orgasms

December 28, 2014

If asked the young women readers, if I could give you a pill that would reduce your loss of urine, improve the muscle and strength in your pelvis and increase your chances of reaching an orgasm, would you like a prescription? Every woman I ask about this medication always says yes they would like a prescription. Now if I told them, it wasn’t a pill but it was a simple exercise that they could do for just two minutes a day, that they could do anywhere, at almost any time, which would accomplish those above objectives many of the women would say no, not interested. How about writing for that pill?

Let me introduce you to Kegel exercises. Kegel exercises are an easy way of strengthening both your vaginal wall muscles and the muscles that control urination and bowel movements (which can also reduce the effects of urinary incontinence.

Older women and women who have had children are especially at risk of weakened pelvic floor muscles.

All you have to do is contract and release the muscles in the pelvic area, squeezing them for 5-10 seconds and then relaxing for 5 seconds each time.

The most important thing is to locate the muscles you’re trying to strengthen, and to get used to the sensation of exercising them. The best way of doing this is to try to stop your urine mid-flow when you go to the restroom. If you do this successfully then you’ve found the muscles you’re looking for.

I suggest that you repeat the cycle of contracting and relaxing ten times per session, and try to fit in three sessions per day which should take you just two minutes. This shouldn’t be difficult as, going to the gym, using weights, doing push-ups or lunges. Honestly, these exercises can be done anywhere, at anytime, without anyone even realizing you’re doing them.

If done properly, you should notice a difference (enhanced sensation during sex and less leakage) in 4-6 weeks.

According to sex experts, it’s not just women who can benefit from Kegel exercises: “Pelvic floor exercises can also benefit men with problems such as erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting or keeping an erection), premature ejaculation, or difficulty with urination.

Bottom Line: A Kegel a day may just keep the doctor away and put a little zing in your sex life. Try it for a few weeks and if you aren’t completely satisfied, I’ll refund your money! ☺

Didn’t Burn 2000 Calories Today-Try Sexercise

December 17, 2013

For the most part we live a sedentary life style. This lack of exercise plus poor nutrition is contributing to the obesity epidemic that is plaguing our nation. Finding places to exercise is often a challenge. One of the easiest forms of good cardiovascular exercise is to shun (?) the up elevator and use the stairs instead. However, sex can be a much more exciting exercise which is equivalent to pounding the pavement. And, when it comes to sex, we hardly need the extra motivation of exercise.

How safe is sex from the cardiovascular standpoint? (This is not to be confused with safe sex!) In fact, some studies suggest sex can reduce your risk of having a heart attack in the first place, while people with a healthy sex life are less likely to get sick in general. Studies have explored whether the rise in heart rate is more likely to make you pass out while you’re on top or in the missionary position. It turns out the risk is considered remarkably slim and depends on how vigorously you go at it, how long you last. Also the top or bottom position is at higher risk if you are having an affair or cheating. The anxiety associated with having an affair is thought to increase likelihood of a heart attack.

Few studies, however, have examined how effective sex as exercise really is.
The average time in the sack lasts between three and seven minutes and the seven-minute workout, as we now know, can be as effective as endurance-based exercise, if we’re working at a high cardiovascular intensity such as jumping rope.
Unfortunately, it seems, most people’s seven-minute sex sessions aren’t reaching those heights – at least in terms of improving cardiovascular fitness. One 2008 study found heart rate and blood pressure “increase just slightly” even at their peak during orgasm. Another study found that the average bout of sexercise burns a measly 21 calories.
The latest study, published in the October issue of the journal Plos One, has slightly more promising results for those hoping to kill two birds with one stone.
The lead author, an exercise scientist from the University of Quebec, recruited 21 young heterosexual couples and hooked them up to heart and blood pressure sensors. First, they were made to jog at a “moderate intensity” for 30 minutes on the treadmill while researchers measured their energy expenditure.
Then, the couples were instructed to go home and over the course of a month, have sex at least once a week and fill in questionnaires assessing perceived energy expenditure, perception of effort, fatigue and pleasure.
The sex sessions lasted approximately 10 minutes and the researchers concluded that sex constitutes “moderate exercise” – the equivalent of walking up a hill with a moderate incline.
The men were found to burn more calories (four per minute versus three per minute for the women) and at times expended more energy than when they were jogging.
It was not a surprise that the study demonstrated that 98 per cent of the participants reported finding sex much more pleasurable than jogging.
