Curious About the Kegal Muscle?

“Kegel muscle” is the colloquial term for the pubococcygeneus(PC) muscle, which is found along the pelvic floor.  Exercise of pelvic floor muscles, more commonly called “Kegel exercises,” consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing these muscles, and has several health benefits.  In addition to treating urinary incontinence, Kegel exercises help prevent vaginal prolapse, can speed vaginal recovery following pregnancy, and can be used to treat prostate pain and swelling as the result of inflammation of the prostate gland.

These exercises can also benefit one’s sex life by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, which increases the intensity of contractions during orgasm and makes orgasms more powerful. Moreover, Kegel exercises imitate the body’s response to climax, and are therefore recommended to those who have difficulty orgasming.  Kegel exercises can also increase erection firmness, as well as allow for better control of orgasms and ejaculations during sexual activity.  Furthermore, they are recommended to treat premature ejaculation and reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction.
