Training For the Big “O”
Exercises that focus on strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can help you achieve stronger orgasms. “The pelvic floor affects all aspects of the sexual anatomy,” says Brotto. These muscles hang from your pelvic bone and function like a hammock, to support your uterus, bladder and bowel. Practicing light contractions helps tone and condition these muscles, which can result in greater sexual satisfaction. “This is partly because [contractions] stimulate the clitoris in a way that you can’t access from the outside and partly because those are the muscles that contract during orgasm,” says Jansen.
