Studies have shown that a strong and toned pelvic floor improves our sexual response. Indeed, there is a proven evidence gathered from numerous studies that a strong pelvic floor improves several aspects of a woman’s sexual life, and among them are excitement, sensitivity during penetration and the ability to reach more frequent orgasms. intense. (Beji NK, Yalcin O, Erkan HA). Many women do not know that the muscles of the pelvic floor are responsible for the sexual pleasure they experience during penetration. The more toned and firm the pelvic musculature of the woman, the greater the sensation of pleasure that she and her partner will experience. It is not difficult to understand that inserting an erect penis into a firm and smooth vagina produces greater and better sensations than if it were introduced into a vagina whose weakened muscles exert hardly any pressure on the penis. This is true for both men and women. A strong and firm pelvic musculature has more nerve endings and this represents a greater number of sensations during the sexual act. In addition, it facilitates rhythmic contractions of the pelvic floor, which increases female arousal reaching even achieve orgasms with greater ease and intensity as we mentioned above.
Kegel exercises (designed to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor) activate the circulation of the perineum and this is of particular relevance for the smaller muscles of the pelvic floor, which are responsible for promoting the excitement of the clitoris. All this has led to that in countries like the USA where pelvic awareness exercises are much more advanced than in Spain, the main muscle of the pelvic floor, the pubococcygeus, is known as “the love muscle” or “muscle of love”.
As explained in the section “Kegel exercises”, exercising the pelvic floor with the help of a vaginal device such as PELVIMAX </ strong> or PELVIMAX MINI </ strong> is much more effective than performing those exercises with an empty vagina (Arvonen T, Fianu-Jonasson A, Tyni-Lenné R). Moreover, many women who try to practice the Kegel exercises with an empty vagina end up worsening their pelvic muscle tone, since it is difficult to locate the pubococcygeus muscle and exercise it correctly without the help of a vaginal device.
Recent clinical studies show that there is a close relationship between urinary incontinence, pelvic prolapse and the risk of sexual dysfunction (Özel B, White T, Urwitz-Lane R, Minaglia S). Reinforcing the muscles of the pelvic floor, identifying the muscles that compose it, learning to use them and keeping them firm, will not only help to prevent medical problems such as urinary incontinence or prolapse of the pelvic organs, but it will definitely be essential to improve our sexual response . Dedicating part of our time to exercise these muscles will have its reward in the sexual arena.
