How Pilates Can Help Your Sex Life

We’re sure you’ve heard all of the benefits of Pilates before (if you haven’t check out this article here)…

But did you know that aside from curing headaches, back pain, muscle strains and all sorts of other ailments…

Pilates is also a great way to help you to achieve mind blowing orgasms!

Yes Pilates really is that great…

For some women a Pilates work out alone can bring them to climax…

Ever heard of ‘coregasms’?

It’s when orgasms occur by engaging your pelvic floor muscles during exercise. Because so much of Pilates focuses on working your core it seems that more and more women are discovering the real benefits of the criss-cross and the mermaid

For those of us who aren’t that lucky there are many sex life enhancing benefits that Pilates brings us outside of the studio…

Obviously you know how well Pilates tones and strengthens your muscles, including the ones you sometimes forget you have…

When you’re doing those core clenching poses remember to clench your pelvic floor muscles (your bladder will thank you and your gynaecologist will give you a pat on the back…). Strengthening and tightening your pelvic floor muscles is the easiest way to improve your orgasm. Toned muscles can hold the orgasms sensation for longer…

And if you’re looking to improve other areas of your sex life Pilates can really help with the “F’ word males sometimes struggle with… foreplay.

As you stretch out you draw oxygen to tired muscles, your blood flow increases (this does sound like a biology lesson but stay with us…) this wakes up the nerves making certain areas of your body far more sensitive and responsive… Particularly your “erogenous” zones.

Breathing exercises also play a pivotal role… Pilates breathing techniques are taught to help your mind concentrate on your physical movements but they also have some other uses…

For some women they’re great for stress relief, calming yourself or getting to sleep at night…

For other women they’re a great way to relax and let go during sex.

Give it a go next time you’re getting down and dirty, instead of letting your mind slip away to thoughts of your to do lists and what’s new on Netflix, you’ll find yourself focusing on the current moment helping you to reach that pivotal moment of climax.

You’ll be surprised how much a little bit of focus helps things along…

Of course we’re not saying Pilates can cure all sexual problems…

But it can help you tone up, and feel more sexy in your own skin which leads to more confidence in the bedroom…

We always advise that with Pilates you get out what you put in…
