You may have seen a story in the news recently claiming that some women orgasm while getting sweaty at the gym. I’m all for getting your pleasures where you can, but frankly I prefer my orgasms when I’m not wearing sweats.
Exercise in general is good for your sex life, because being fit is good for maintaining sexual drive and stamina. However, certain kinds of exercise are more beneficial than others when it comes to sex. Kegels make orgasm easier and stronger. Strengthening your middle, lower back, abdomen and pelvis contributes to one’s ability to thrust. Yoga can help stretch your hip and groin muscles. A stronger backside doesn’t just look good in jeans – it helps support your middle and hips, both important for sex.
Sex itself is a pretty decent workout, but only if you spend some time and energy on it. On average, thirty minutes of sex burns around 85 calories. Which, granted, isn’t a huge amount, but every bit helps! You can up the exercise benefits of sex by spending longer on foreplay and by using more physically demanding positions.
