The most well-known way of practicing kegel exercises is to squeeze and then relax the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle numerous times every day. But it’s 2018, friends, and we have technology on our side.
The easiest (and, not to mention, most fun!) way to adopt a kegel exercise routine now is to combine sex toys and fitness. A majority of the devices on the market have a number of the usual tech-tastic features such as wireless Bluetooth capabilities, interactive games, and cross country user control modes. Let’s say you’re not a tech geek and you wouldn’t care even if a device cooked you breakfast in the morning. Why should you give a hoot about kegel exercises?
What Are Kegel Exercises?
Kegel exercises (muscle training for the pelvic floor) are a real and immediate way anyone can achieve stronger orgasms during sex and improve bladder control.
They are a necessary exercise for people of all ages and body types who appreciate the ability to have a healthy inner core. If you’re a beginner, you’ll want to practice by tightening your pelvic floor muscles for five seconds, relaxing for five seconds, and repeating that sequence with a goal of advancing your holding time as you progress. Intermediate and expert kegel enthusiasts can double those numbers and reap the benefits. If you’re not familiar with your pelvic floor muscles at all, the next time you go to the bathroom, practice tightening the muscles you use to stop the flow of urine. Those are your pelvic floor muscles.
Which Kegel Exercise Device is Right For Me?
If you have a vulva and your body feels ready to add weight to your kegel exercise routine, you could try Ami Progressive Pelvic Weights; they come in single sets ranging from sizes small, to medium, to large. These body-safe silicone kegel exercise devices are soft and built with single and double balls for beginners and experts to train. Just lubricate the balls with a water-based lubricant, insert them into the vagina, then hold and squeeze your muscles to work out.
Don’t forget to fully release after you’ve contracted your muscles.
If you’re a tech geek or you’d like feedback on your progress, the next trainer might be perfect for your kegel exercise routine.
We-Vibe Bloom Kegel Balls are designed with body-safe silicone as well, and pair to your smartphone via Bluetooth by way of an external antenna that’s left outside the body to control its vibrating patterns and intensity levels through the We-Vibe app.
Though it operates like a powerful rechargeable vibrating sex toy, weights of 10g, 30g, and 45g can be attached to the structure to strengthen your pelvic floor while you do the kegel exercise. Start out with the lowest weight and listen to your body for cues that you are ready to level up. The key to these designs is keeping the signal from the toy to the app free flowing. The best way to do that is to keep the phone within range and sit or lie with your legs slightly apart while the device is in use.
The most uniquely designed kegel exercise sex toy is the Dua by Je Joue with its crescent-shaped waterproof body.
Like the exercises mentioned before, this clitoral vibrator can be used as a kegel strengthener and a controlled g-spot stimulator.
The device is flexible and has five speeds and seven patterns to choose from to change up your fitness routine every time. Plus, its waterproof exterior makes for bathtub fun and a rejuvenating workout.
Sometimes it is easy to fall into the trap of being entirely wrapped up in our responsibilities, stressors, and obligations.
That’s why all-in-one sex toys and fitness devices are invaluable when it comes to having feel-good moments in our daily lives that are crucial to both our physical and emotional health.
