What better thing to do on a Tuesday afternoon than to….find your PC muscles!

Ever wondered how to increase your sexual pleasure and get more in tune with what’s happening inside when you’re experiencing sexual pleasure? (This one’s for the folks with vaginas!)

The PC muscle contracts during orgasm. It is also responsible for urine flow. It also supports in childbirth and is linked to timely ejaculation. Basically, strengthening and becoming aware of this muscle can support with orgasm, peeing, ejaculation and childbirth! Oh ya, it can also support balance while standing or sitting.

Some suggested steps to finding and exercising these muscles:

1. Find your PC muscle by stopping the flow of urine next time you’re urinating.

2. Later, while in transit, in a meeting, in an appointment, or just chilling at home, squeeze and release those muscles as quickly as you can, comfortably. It’ll be our little secret;)

3. Repeat from 2 up to 30 times in a row, comfortably.

This should not be painful. If you are experiencing any discomfort, please stop.
