About a year ago, we posted a video on YouTube that focused on pelvic floor exercises specifically targeting the fast twitch fibres of the pelvic floor which are oh so critical for orgasm. Well here we are some 11 months later and I would like to once again bring up the subject up again so let’s talk about sex and orgasm. Although the pelvic floor plays an important role, there is so much more involved in achieving orgasm, your nervous system, your mind, your environment. You have to get many ducks in a row in order to cross that line. I listened to a great podcast on the My Pelvic Floor Muscles YouTube channel between Jeanice Mitchell and Dr. Uchenna Ossai who is a sex-positive pelvic health physical therapist, sex educator and counsellor, and is on faculty for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Sexual Health Certificate Program.
This was a really informative and interesting podcast that explores the pelvic floor, orgasm and the tools that can help when things aren’t quite working. It’s well worth a watch if you have some time on your hands! You’ll find many other great podcasts on the My Pelvic Floor Muscles YouTube channel, be sure to subscribe if you haven’t done so already!
Help to Break the Taboo
If you are suffering from stress incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, fecal incontinence or sexual dysfunction, working on the function of your pelvic floors fast twitch fibres can greatly enhance pelvic floor function. In the case of pelvic pain, you should refrain from doing kegels instead focusing on reverse kegels (relaxation instead of contraction). Try it!
