The sexual benefits of good pelvic floor tone

The sexual benefits of good pelvic floor tone in women and men.

Women tend to be more aware of their pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, heavy lifting and menopause can cause in weakening of the pelvic floor resulting in bladder weakness also known as stress incontinence.

For women this can have a limiting effect on their activities, particular running, jumping on trampolines and gym exercises.
Many women are told this is normal, nothing can be done and it is a normal part of aging.

The pelvic floor muscles, like any other, become weaker when not actively used. Hormone changes during leading up to and during menopause weaken the pelvic floor muscles.
Simple exercises, made easier by using Pelvic floor training devices such as Smartballs can correct and prevent bladder weakness in women and allow women to resume or take up exercising without fear or embarrassment about wetting your pants.

If you sneeze and wet your pants, try Smart Balls. Best of all, with a small amount of training you can pop your Smart Balls in and forget about them for the day while they do all the work.

So where do the sex benefits come in? Toned and terrific pelvic floor muscles lead to stronger orgasms for women and if your partner is a man, he will usually notice the improved squeeze during sex after as little as two weeks of use.

Other tips and tricks for your pelvic floors; before lifting heavy items, squeeze your pelvic floor muscles and hold whilst lifting. This protects them and helps protect your back. A strong core includes strong pelvic floor muscles and is good for your back.

Who knew men have pelvic floor muscles too? They perform a similar function as for women and strong pelvic floor muscles reduce the likelihood of incontinence in older age.

Strong pelvic floor muscles for men mean stronger erections and often quicker recovery times for men of all ages.

For men there is not currently an equivalent muscle training device such as Smart Balls, however squeezing and lifting the pelvic floor muscles- a technique used in yoga will strengthen the muscles.

The easiest way for men to do this is to squeeze your anus- bum hole- whatever you call it and then pull that muscle up towards your belly button.

All us will grow old, and none of us want to be incontinent...start now on improving your pelvic floor tone and enjoy the sex benefits too.

 

Ask a Question. I am 70 years old and wear pads due to loss of bladder control, will Smart Balls work for me?

Will SmartBalls work for a 70 year old?

Question.

I am 70 years old and for the past ten years have been wearing pads because of a lack of control with my bladder. I would dearly like to stop wearing these and have just read about Smart balls on line. . What product would you recommend I get? What is the name of a good water based lubricant? As I have never worn any internal things like "tampax" because I never learnt how to do this and when I tried to it was most uncomfortable, will the lubricant take care of this problem?

Pelvic Floor Answers

If you have the time and can commit to doing more active exercise, I would recommend the Natratone over the SmartBalls.

They work more of the core as well as pelvic floor muscles and are very helpful for reconnecting and retraining the brain to recognise and activate your pelvic floor muscles in the correct sequence. 
You would only insert the Natratoner in the vaginal entrance and practise a series of pelvic floor exercises, rather than wearing the ball internally for long periods of time.

You can put a little water on the Natratone to lubricate it- no lubricant required. The Natratone comes with an instructional DVD as well.
The minimum amount of time to get results is using it for 10 minutes a day, 3x per week for at least 6 weeks. Many women use it daily and for longer- at least 3 months.

There is not harm in ongoing use as strong pelvic floor muscles are a great thing and is an excellent way to banish the pads.
There is a good section about Natratone on Frequently asked questions - FAQs
