Contractions By A Woman, For A Woman

But millennial and VProud intern Caitlin Kells digs a bit deeper, if you will, to find out why women should definitely kegel. We're all about women being in charge of their own health—and their own orgasms—at VProud so we're listening to Caitlin.

Kegels For Women:

Stretch Your Muscles, Ladies. 

All Of Them.

Kegels ... ever heard of them? Well, they are the muscles down under. That’s right ladies, they hold together all the goods. Why wouldn’t you want to keep those muscles toned, strong, and ready for battle, because let’s be real, they go through a lot in the span of your life. There are many benefits to doing kegel exercises. Some may say that they aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, but what’s the harm in exercising down there? That’s right, none. The number one benefit to doing kegel exercises is the prevention of tearing when you give birth. It's very possible that if you do your kegel exercises often enough and in the right way, that when you’re essentially trying to push a watermelon out of a pinhole, you won’t have the added pain of literally ripping yourself in half. Now, doing kegel exercises is not a guaranteed no tearing situation. It simply increases your chances of having a little bit of an easier birthing process.

As Connie Brichford from everydayhealth reports, another amazing benefit of kegel exercises for women who have had multiple kids is that this can improve your bladder control. Now be honest, if you’ve had your fair share in giving birth there are those moments (like when you sneeze or cough) that a little bit of pee escapes and there’s nothing you can do about it. Well, good news: doing kegel exercises can help this problem! 

There are so many ways you can go about doing your kegels. The most common way is simply to contract your muscles while you’re sitting, standing, or basically doing any daily activity. It’s great because you can do them at any time and anywhere. However, there are more intense ways to work out the woman down there. There are now exercise accessories to help tone your kegel muscles and these are known to make your orgasm stronger.

Tips For Better Kegels

I found a few tips for better kegels. You're welcome. First off, it's vital that you find and isolate the right muscle. In order to do that, try stopping your pee the next time you go to the bathroom. The muscle that helps with that is the muscle that you should focus on. Another thing that can make your kegel exercises as beneficial as possible, is being repetitive. As they say, practice makes perfect. Doing the exercises twice or even three times a day will be the most help to your body. So keep up the good work, ladies, and keep those vaginas strong!
