Are you looking to take your pleasure and orgasms to the next level? If so, an important part of this journey is to understand and strengthen the power of your perineum. Often referred to as “the pleasure zone” or “the forbidden zone”, the perineum holds great potential when it comes to heightening sensations in both men and women. In this article, we are going to look at the scientific reasons why working on this specific muscle group can lead to increased stimulation!
The perineum: what is it?
The perineum is an area of the body that many people know well, but of which they are unaware of the real usefulness. Generally located between the anus and the vulva in women, or between the anus and the scrotum in men, it consists of a muscular sheet that separates the rectum from the other organs. Apart from providing support to these areas as we move around, it also plays an important role in labor and delivery. During childbirth, pressure is exerted on this area, causing it to stretch or even tear. This is why, during pregnancy, it would be wise for future mothers to learn about perineal massage, a technique that can help reduce the risk of serious tearing during childbirth.
How could the perineum impact our orgasm?
The perineum is an area of the body that is often overlooked during sexual intercourse. Yet researchers have identified this area as playing a major role in orgasm control. Stimulation of the perineum increases pleasure, which leads to more intense and powerful orgasms. Even if it cannot be stimulated directly, the energy projected by the perineum can still influence the level of pleasure we experience during our most intimate moments. With this in mind, striving to maintain the health and vitality of this sensitive part of our body can result in greater enjoyment during sexual pleasures.
Apart from a more powerful orgasm, the perineum has other functions to perform.
- It serves as a link between the pelvic floor and the abdominal wall and is responsible for maintaining continence.
- The perineum also acts as a cushion, absorbing forces generated during movement and helping to maintain postural stability.
- It participates in the propulsion of urine and feces through the urethra and anus.
- It is also involved in the regulation of intra-pelvic pressure, stress relaxation, muscle tone regulation and pelvic floor coordination.
- In women, it provides support for the bladder and rectum, allows normal childbirth, supports the vaginal walls, provides sensation to the pelvic organs and protects them from trauma during intercourse.
- For men, it helps prevent retrograde ejaculation into the bladder during orgasm by contracting at just the right time.
- It aids in erection functioning by providing additional sensations and helping to maintain an erection for longer periods of time.
What to do to maintain the good health of the perineum?
The Kegel exercise is a simple but powerful technique that helps strengthen the muscles of the perineum.
- The most common way to do this exercise is to repeatedly contract and relax the pelvic floor muscles.
- To identify these muscles, try stopping your urine halfway when you go to the bathroom; these are the same muscles used for Kegel exercises. As you contract them, imagine pulling them up and toward your navel. Hold this contraction for five seconds, then release and relax for another five seconds before starting again.
- You can also practice contracting these muscles as you would a handshake, holding this contraction for 10 seconds before releasing and relaxing for another 10 seconds before starting again.
It is important to remember not to contract other muscles, such as those in the stomach or legs, when doing Kegel exercises; contract only the pelvic floor muscles intentionally! By doing this exercise regularly for 8 to 12 weeks, you will strengthen the perineum, which will allow you to have better control of your bladder and improve your sexual pleasure, among other benefits.
When you start doing Kegel exercises, it’s best to start with three sets of 10 reps a day, at least three times a week. Gradually increase the number of sets and repetitions as you feel more comfortable.
Remember: slowness and regularity are the keys to success! If done correctly, these exercises will help increase blood flow to the area, allowing for better oxygenation and nutrients that will help heal weakened tissues in the pelvic floor muscles, which will increase strength over time. and will result in better bladder control and overall better sexual pleasure!
They are some of the most popular options on the market, and they are incredibly easy to use. Many Kegel balls come in different weights and sizes, so you can start with a light set and gradually increase the tension as your muscles get stronger. Made of smooth silicone, these exercise balls provide resistance to the pelvic floor muscles to improve muscle control and tone. They are also perfect for people looking to increase the intensity of their muscles in order to improve their sexual performance and increase pleasure during intercourse.
The exerciser of kegels vibrating:
These devices work the same way as regular Kegel balls, but provide an added element of stimulation besides muscle toning. The vibrations help relax the pelvic floor muscles while providing intense sensations and potentially increasing arousal levels. Additionally, many models feature multiple vibration modes, allowing users to find their ideal level of stimulation and adjust accordingly.
Finally, there are also ben-wa type weights that can be used to directly target the muscles of the perineum. They come in the form of sets of two or more weighted balls that can be inserted into the vagina and manipulated using small internal pelvic exercises while still inside the body.
Ben-wa weights often feature a silky smooth coating that allows them to slide comfortably inside the body without any discomfort or chafing. Making them ideal for extended wear or during intimate activities with a partner. Plus, many sets feature adjustable weights so you can customize your experience to what works best for you.
