The Indispensable Kegel

You cannot have a great sex life with a flaccid pubococcygeus (PC) muscle. It’s just not possible. You won’t be able to grasp his penis as tightly as you’d like when he’s inside you. You won’t have the ability to make your orgasm come on faster, longer, and stronger. Without exercising this critical muscle after childbirth, you will never regain sexual tone. (And do you think so many women would need adult diapers if they had a stronger PC?)

Do your Kegels. It’s critical to your sex life and just not that hard to do. Standing in line, driving, working out, reading a book, watching TV—Kegel time, any time. And yes, he needs to have a strong PC muscle too to sustain intercourse longer and have some control over his ejaculation.

The PC muscle is a hammock-like muscle that stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx (tailbone) in both sexes. It forms the floor of your pelvic cavity. Locate your PC muscle by stopping and starting the flow of urine. After you have found the PC muscle, start with a short Kegel sequence, and then add a long Kegel sequence.

Short Kegel Sequence

Contract the muscle 20 times at approximately one squeeze per second. Exhale gently as you tighten only the muscles around your genitals (including the anus), but not the muscles in your buttocks. Don’t bear down when you release. Simply let go.

Do two sets of 20 twice a day. Gradually build up to two sets of 75 per day.

Long Kegel Sequence

Hold the muscle contractions for a count of three. Relax between contractions. Work up to holding for ten seconds, then relaxing for ten seconds. Again start with two sets of 20 and build up to two sets of 75.

Once you are doing 300 contractions a day of the combined short and long sequences, you will be ready to add the push-out.

The Push-Out

After releasing the contraction, push down and out gently, as if you were having a bowel movement with your PC muscle. I said gently. It’s a slow release of that muscle, with some light pressure exerted while pushing down (out).

Once you’ve mastered the push-out, create Kegel sequences that combine long and short repetitions with push-outs. After six weeks of daily sets of 300, you should have a well-developed PC muscle and can keep it that way by doing sets of 150 several times a week.
