Kegels for Women
Since I am a sex fiend, I’m always on the lookout for techniques that will improve my sex drive and give me more intense orgasms. So, imagine my delight when I investigated sexual techniques in yoga and improved my Kegel exercises.
The key to improving sexual strength lies in strengthening your pubococcygeus (PC) muscles of the pelvic floor. The PC (or Kegel) muscles are the same ones that restrict the flow of urine when you tighten them.
I already exercise my Kegels regularly, either alone or using ben wa balls, also known as pleasure beads. Inserting my Luna Pleasure Beads was easy. I dribbled a little lubricant on them, slid in the first one, and then slid in the second. I wiggled my hips a bit so that they would comfortably settle inside me, and made sure the string stuck out so that I could easily remove them. They stayed in place with a little help from my Kegel muscles. It felt almost like second nature to clench them. Moving brought forth the most pleasant sensations from the jiggling balls. When you actually have something inside you to grab, you give yourself quite an internal workout.
Specific Kegel exercises for women are very easy and enjoyable to do. Here are a few.
Quick Flex: Flex your Kegel muscles as hard as you can for two seconds, then release. Repeat this movement every second and do it 10 times. I found this movement to be very arousing, as well as easy to do.
Slow Flex: Flex your Kegel muscles slowly for about 15 seconds, and then slowly release. Repeat this movement every 15 seconds, and do it 10 times. This movement built up a nice feeling of arousal, and it helped me to grip the Luna Pleasure Beads for a long time, which definitely affected my climaxes, since I learned to grip while coming, making my orgasms more intense.
Intense Flex: Flex your Kegel muscles as hard as you can slowly for one minute, and then release quickly. Repeat this movement 10 times. I found that the harder I gripped my Luna Pleasure Beads or any other sex toy, the more intense my arousal and orgasms.
Kegels for Men
Kegel exercises aren’t just for women. A good Kegel workout for men can control the flow of semen and urine. When men regularly practice Kegel exercises, they improve their ability to have hard and intense erections well into their old age. Worried about not being able to get hard when you are in your eighties? Start working on Kegels now!
Kegel exercises for men are similar to those for women. They are not only easy to do, they are fun and arousing. Here are a few examples:
Kegels For Men 1: Clench hard and release repeatedly for 10 seconds. Take a five-second break. Repeat three times.
Kegels For Men 2: Clench hard and release repeatedly for 30 seconds. Take a 30-second break. Repeat three times.
Kegels For Men 3: Clench and release for a long time, then clench and release for a short time. Alternate short and long for a count of 10.
Kegel exercises aren’t the only way to improve your sexual prowess and stamina. Sexual activity can be improved with yoga. Most people know that Tantric Yoga affects sexual activity. Here are a few Tantric positions that will improve your sexual performance. They come from the "The Big O In Om: Yoga For Hotter Sex", from Prevention Magazine.
Bound Angle: Sit with the soles of your feet together and place your hands on your ankles. Let your knees relax as close to the floor as you can get them. Lean forward at the hips as far as you can. Hold for ten to fifteen complete breaths, inhaling and exhaling.
Mula Bandha (Root Lock): Either standing or seated, release your PC muscle as if you are stopping your flow of urine. Do this in 10 intervals.
Yoga Pushups. Lie in a pushup position with your arms extended. Tighten your abdominal muscles as you lower your body towards the floor. When your torso is two to three inches from the floor, stop. Hold in your elbows, and hold this position for five breaths, and then lower your torso to the floor. Repeat three times and as you become better at it, increase to five times.
Breath of Fire. While you are enjoying sex either alone or with a partner, take forceful, rhythmic, and rapid breaths through your nose with your mouth closed. Breathe deep, using your diaphragm to pull air deep into your lungs. You'll have the most wonderful orgasms using this technique. The Breath of Fire is practiced for no more than two minutes at a time. This breath is a powerful and energizing way to clear your lungs, get your brain working, and cleanse your blood. While the Breath of Fire may be done in any position, it's best done standing or seated with a straight spine.
The aforementioned Breath of Fire is one of four different types of breathwork in Kundalini yoga you may use to relax, energize, and improve your sex life. The four breathworks are Breath of Fire, The Bottom Breath, The Heart Breath, and The Circular Breath. These four breathes are from "Four Conscious Breaths", "Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex For The Twenty-First Century", by Barbara Carrellas.
And now, onto the last three of the Four Conscious Breaths. The first one is The Bottom Breath, which you may practice for five to ten minutes. Sit on the floor with your legs crossed, or sit in a chair with your feet on the floor and your spine straight. Push your bum cheeks aside so that you are sitting directly on your tailbone. Once you learn this breath, you may practice it in any position. Place your hands on your belly and relax your belly. Then, exhale all the air out of your lungs. As you inhale, gently push on your anal sphincter, as if your anus is "kissing" the floor or chair. When you exhale, don't contract your anus. Don't hold it and don't push. Just relax. Repeat this breath, pushing out with your anal sphincter while inhaling but staying relaxed when exhaling.
The Circular Breath is ideal for circulating energy around your body and your partner's body. It builds and moves energy and it intensifies emotional and physical feelings – including sexual feelings. As you practice this breath, visualize a circle in which your breath flows. The Circular Breath is breathing in a continuous flow, in and out, without stress. There should be no break between inhalation and exhalation. First, breathe gently through your mouth, keeping your lips parted and jaw relaxed. Feel the back of your throat relax and open. Don't force or push the breath. Imagine your breath making a complete circle. Practice this Circular Breath for five to 10 minutes.
The Heart Breath is a great all-around breath to enhance an erotic good time. First, yawn, and feel how your yawn opens your throat, mouth, and entire face. Keep that feeling in mind because it's the essence of The Heart Breath. Let your mouth fall open slightly as you breathe, and relax your jaw and face. Open up the back of your throat, and breathe through your mouth, fully and gently. Don't tense up. Exhale, allowing your breath to fall out as if with a gentle sigh. Don't force it out. Then, take in as much air as you can, with little effort, and then gently let it go. Keep breathing. Practice The Heart Breath for five to 10 minutes.
