A healthy and toned pelvic floor is essential for better sex. The pelvic floor is considered one of the core muscles and is located just beneath your pelvis. When you have a strong and healthy pelvic floor, you can have an improved sexual response. This means better arousal, increased sensation and … wait for it … stronger, more intense orgasms.
“Engage your pelvic floor” is likely to be the first cue you hear in a Pilates class, making Pilates exercises very efficient in working this group of muscles and connective tissue. In particular, these three simple moves really target the pelvic floor. Before you try them, you’ll want to know how to engage the pelvic floor. Kegels used to be the norm, but “cutting off the flow of urine” has become dated. You can practice a newer technique by imagining that you are grabbing a blueberry with your vagina and then lifting it inside your body toward your belly button. Another way to practice it is to imagine elevator doors closing (the doors being your labia), and then the elevator goes up or lifts toward your belly button. Keep those cues in mind as you try these moves, and get ready for better sex.
