Keeping the muscles in our nether regions tight is incredibly important. The reasons are manifold, exercising your vaginal muscles decreases urinary incontinence, can help ease the pains of childbirth, but most importantly are a phenomenal tool to utilize while having sex. Your partner will enjoy the feelings of your kegel adeptness, as it feels like his penis is being ‘milked’ so to speak. But the exercise is not just for women. Men who are premature ejaculators can also benefit from learning how to properly exercise this erogenous pelvic muscle.
The trick is to imagine that you are holding in your urine. Go ahead, try it right now. Do you feel it? Yes. Tighten and release, tighten and release. As you begin doing it more regularly, you can change rhythms and speed. There are devices and toys that can help you with your kegel exercise. My favorite being Ben Wa Balls, also referred to as Venus Balls, or Geisha Balls. The name is not so important as the incredible benefits that are derived from using them. They are metal spherical shaped balls that vary in size, but are usually no larger than a medium sized set of marbles. They are to be inserted into the vagina and held using the strength of your vaginal muscles. When you get good at this you can even hold the balls in place while standing. There is no fear of the balls being swallowed in the abyss of your vagina, but if this idea scares you, there are Ben Wa balls that can be purchased that have a retrieval string attached.
As you get more advanced you can use your Ben Wa Balls in different positions squatting, sitting, standing etc…The Important thing is to start off slow. The first time you may try to hold them in for 30 seconds, and then slowly work your way up to a more advanced regime. For those among you who are a bit timid about the usage, you should rest assured that gynecologist and obgyn’s alike recommend kegel exercise to increase the elasticity of your vajajay.
Try it out and see how you like it at the very least your doing your bladder a favor by preventing potential urinary incontinence but even more your man will thank you, and you will thank me. Trust me!
