Kegel exercises for men: Do they really make orgasms better?

See also

Frank, from Houston, TX, sent us the following question:

“My wife tells me if I do Kegel exercises, sex will feel better, but I thought those were just for women. Is there really such a thing for men?”

I hope that Frank didn’t bet any money on this one, because his wife is actually right. Men and women alike can both practice - and benefit from - Kegel exercises. In order to do so, you need to find the muscle responsible for it. You can do this by stopping the flow of urine mid-pee. Once you have located the muscle, you can work on strengthening it, any time of day or night, and no one will ever be the wiser.

Essentially, what you are going to do is contract that muscle for a slow count of 5, and then relax it for a slow count of 5. Do 10 repetitions, 3 times a day. As your muscle gets stronger, you can hold the contraction longer and increase the number of repetitions and sets – the more you practice, the stronger that muscle will become.

Urologists often recommend this exercise to men who struggle with urinary incontinence issues, but many patients have experienced the happy side effect of more powerful orgasms and even stronger erections. Now, not all men are going to have this side effect, but if it’s something you are interested in, it might be worth a try. Just be sure to be patient with it and practice for a few weeks before making up your mind, as the results will not happen over night. Good luck and happy flexing!
