Orgasm During Exercise - Introducing the "Coregasm"

In case you need another motivator for doing your core exercises, a new study headed up by Debby Herbenick says that some women experience orgasm WHILE exercising...dubbed the "coregasm". Love it!

An estimated 45 percent of the women who responded to the researchers' online request for women who had either exercise-induced orgasm (EIO) or exercise-induced sexual pleasure (EISP) said their first experience was during abdominal exercises, followed by weight lifting (26.5 percent), yoga (20 percent), bicycling (15.8 percent), running (13.2 percent) and walking/hiking (9.6 percent). Any exercise that involves the core muscles seems to trigger that sense of pleasure -- chin-ups, climbing ropes and especially the "captain's chair," a rack with padded arm rests that allows the legs to hang free before lifting the knees to the chest. A handful of women said they even had sexual feelings while mopping or walking.

Thank God it isn't the same for men. A lycra-clad gym could be a little...awkward.

Cosmopolitan Magazine will probably devote 10 pages to this next month. I'll never look at a spin class the same way every again. ;-)

  1. I'll try to use that excuse when instructing my wife to mop again.

  2. Loved this entry. I do spin class and actually get that "urge" often... how can you NOT- look at the shape of the seat!
    Thankfully I am a woman and can hide it well :)

  3. Did they really spent taxpayer's money to do research on it?

  4. And apparently the perfect core exercises to achieve this are hanging leg raises, hanging side crunches and single leg plank. Um. I wrote about this in my blog a while back and did my own "research" ha!

  5. This is simply brilliant! I didn't know this is how it works now. Very informative post.

  6. I'm not really sure about this. I guess yoga is not too intense to get this much satisfaction. Maybe exercises could wake our hormones up. yoga for beginners

  7. So I guess that's what most medical experts have been using to get the working girls to go back to exercising. I do wonder what will happen if it has the same effect on men (just picturing it does it make it look so awkward, though).
