Is your workout inducing the big C? The best workout you’ll ever have could include climaxing. Who knew! An exercise induced orgasm (EIO) or coregasm is an orgasm reached through exercise, core specific exercises. An EIO is nothing new, it has been recognised in scientific literature for over 60 years, but is rather elusive to most women.
So how is it achieved exactly you ask?!
As the name suggests, it is induced by the deep core muscles contracting during the final reps of a core exercise, so the muscles need to be fatigued. Certain Pilates and yoga movements that trigger the pelvic floor muscles to contract will enable a coregasm to occur. Generally speaking, those who bestow a strong pelvic floor can enjoy the fruits of their hard work in this way. The pelvic floor and the abdominal muscles are both attached to the pelvis and the pelvis is where all the magic happens!
I find TRX suspension core exercises also brings about this rush of ecstasy. Note that a coregasm differs from a clitoral orgasm and you need not be having any thoughts of a sexual nature to bring one on. Indeed, they can last much longer than a regular orgasm, some women have reported that they can last hours and experience an altered state of consciousness. Whether or not your core workout leads to the holy grail of coregasm, there are still a multitude of benefits to working and strengthening your core.
- improves your balance and stabilises hips and spine for optimal movement.
- prevents lower back pain
- improves posture and spinal health
- improves respiratory function
- flattens and slims waistline
- reduces the risk of injury
- enhances neuromuscular efficiency throughout the body
- enhances physical performance
- helps to tighten the muscles of the pelvic floor which supports the bladder and uterus after childbirth.
Do not despair if you are yet to reap the full effects from your core workout, by simply strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, it will stand you in very good stead to reaching and enhancing the big O in the bedroom!
