You want to improve your sex life for you and your partner. Your partner has been learning new techniques. The two of you focus on mutual pleasure. These things are big steps in the right direction for pleasure and intimacy. However, they are not the only things women need to pay attention to. While what our partners do to us is important, our own bodies are just as vital to our pleasure.
Healthy Body Equals Healthy Sex Life
For most women, when our health fades, our sex drive fades as well. A lot of things, from weight gain, to depression, to chronic health problems, can affect our mood and how we respond to sexual stimuli. These are not the only things we should focus on, however, when we think about our health. We should also look at our bodies, especially the pelvic region, to keep things healthy as well. This goes beyond regular checkups and includes regular workouts.
Yes, I am talking about Kegels. Working out your Kegel muscles – the pelvic floor muscles that tense around your vagina will help improve your sex life greatly. Techniques vary, so you should find the one that works best for you. As you become practiced at tensing and relaxing those muscles, you will find that your sex life gets better.
- You feel tighter. That tighter sensation is good for you and your partner. He will feel more stimulation along his shaft, which will drive his performance during intercourse. For you, that tightness will mean better stimulation of nerves along the vaginal wall, which means more pleasure.
- You orgasm harder. What is more effective, trying to pick up a bag with your wrist, or your whole arm? Obviously, using your whole arms is effective. The muscles in your arm are stronger and better equipped for lifting.
The same goes for pelvic muscles. If you work them, they will be stronger and better equipped for intercourse. When you orgasm, the stronger muscles will cause more intense flexing, which will translate to a harder and more satisfying orgasm.
- You are healthier down there. Working the pelvic floor muscles leads to better pelvic health –sexually and otherwise. Better muscle control means a healthier urinary tract system. It can also mean less painful periods since your muscles will be able to work better for clearing your system. That better health means your body is open to experiencing more pleasure.
