Life is hard, but reaching your orgasm doesn't have to be...
What can a professional dancer, Yoga instructor, mum-of-four, and wife of a Hollywood star teach you about your sex life? We're going to guess: a fair bit.
The multi-faceted Hilaria Baldwin (life-partner of Alec) has also authored four health, fitness, and wellness books so when she shares a tip that claims to boost bedroom antics, you can bet we're going to listen.
Mere weeks after giving birth to the latest addition to the Baldwin brood, the 34-year-old Spanish/American star took to Instagram to preach the benefits of Pelvic Floor exercises.
EVERYONE MUST DO THIS EXERCISE. This is life changing. Pelvic floor and lower abs. Reasons to work the pelvic floor: better sex, better control over bladder and 💩 , fitter body (particularly abs), more youthful body, more stamina...for women: easier childbirth and recovery...the list goes on. In class, I explain the sensation of exercising the pelvic floor as having to pee and holding it. Learning to release the muscles slowly is vital. So contract, then slowly release. You will see that my lower belly puffs up. This will happen with you too...think about pulling it in with the muscles, as this happens. You will get extra out of the workout! 3 sets of 10 and you can bend the knees if you want. I know it’s a ton of info...but SO IMPORTANT #wegotthis2018
According to many health sources, performing pelvic floor muscle (Kegel) exercises is a simple way to improve your sexual health and pleasure.
Kegel exercises help the vagina to be more open (we know what your dirty mind is thinking, behave) which increases sexual arousal, helps women reach their orgasm, and improves blood circulation. Studies have even shown that women with stronger pelvic floor muscles have longer, more intense orgasms....wagons!
But, how do you even find your pelvic floor muscles? Elvie, a piece of equipment designed to help transform the way women do their Kegels, describes the pelvic floor as a "powerful set of muscles that sits like a hammock between your tailbone and pubic bone, supporting your core and the organs of your lower abdomen."
In layman's terms, the easiest way to find these muscles is to imagine you are squeezing to stop the flow of urine. Bingo: you've found them.
Now, time to work 'em. During your session, tighten the muscle and hold for 3-6 seconds before relaxing completely for 3-6 seconds. Repeat this up to 20 times.
What are you waiting for? It's cheaper than sex therapy...
