Benefits Of Kegel Exercises For Men
Kegels increase your capacity to have longer and harder erections, giving your woman more pleasure as well. Research has shown that kegels could even help restore erectile function in men with erectile dysfunction. Kegels increase sexual pleasure, as they improve the flow of blood and thus sensitivity to the genital area. Kegels also help you to last longer in bed and helps out premature ejaculation problems by having more muscular control of the pelvis. The increase in blood flow to the penis helps build a healthier prostate and keep all your sexual organs running smoothly.
1. Ejaculation control
This is perhaps the most well-known benefit of doing kegels: helping guys deal with premature ejaculation. Training the PC and BC muscles can help by enhancing your ability to hold back from ejaculating just before the point of no return. When you find yourself reaching that point during sex, you can squeeze the BC and PC muscles to prevent yourself from climaxing. So in some ways it can be seen as a last line of defense. This then buys you time to rest, change positions or take whatever action you need to delay your orgasm before continuing to have sex.
2. Learning to relax the right muscles during sex
Doing kegels can sometimes make things worse for men when they have sex. This is usually because they think they should be doing kegels constantly while having sex, but this actually leads to quicker climax.
The problem is, men often don’t realise that the kegels they do in training should only be used just before they orgasm. Up until that point, they should do the opposite and try to keep the pelvic floor muscles relaxed. It’s becoming more widely known that you’ll last longer if you relax the pelvic floor muscles while having sex. Use normal Kegels only as a last defense, and you’ll find you have 2 different ways to control ejaculation.
3. Improving erection strength and size
Doing kegels actively pumps more blood into the penis. This can then have the following effects on your erection:
- You may find you have a bigger erection.
- You may have a harder erection.
- You might be able to get it up easier by actively pumping blood into it. This can be particularly useful for men who find they lose an erection when trying to put a condom on. It may also help men who suffer from erectile dysfunction.
- You may also be able to keep your erection for longer, perhaps even reaching the fabled level of male multiple orgasms.
4. Improve the force of ejaculation
Some men have found that they have a larger volume of ejaculation after developing their pelvic floor muscles.
Some men find one of the surprising benefits is that they can ejaculate further. It doesn’t exactly serve a practical purpose, but fun nonetheless and good for the ego.
5. More intense orgasms
Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles can result in you having more powerful orgasms. If you can stop yourself ejaculating but still orgasm, you may be able to have male multiple orgasms during sex.
6. Help with incontinence and leaks
One of the kegel exercise benefits not related to sex, but still very useful for some men is that it can help with incontinence. This is because you use the same muscles for kegels as you do when trying to hold in urine. Some men may dribble after they finish urinating. Others may leak when they laugh, sneeze or strain themselves. Strengthening the right muscles through kegels can help prevent this from happening.
7. Performing Kegel Exercise
Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor (pubococcygeus) muscles and increase blood flow to the penis region. When you perform these exercises correctly, you lift up your testicles, strengthen your cremaster and anal sphincter muscles and increase blood flow to your penis, all at the same time. This muscle connection, combined with the increased blood flow explains why these exercises can be so effective in men suffering with erectile dysfunction.
To locate the muscles involved in Kegeling, try these two strategies:
Stop and start the flow of urine while urinating. The muscles that make that happen are the very ones that you will isolate and contract. Imagine you need to pass some gas. The muscles you contract to avoid expelling gas are the same ones you need to do Kegels.
You can check whether you are using the right muscles by standing naked in front of a mirror and lifting your penis up and down, using only those muscles. If you can successfully do this without moving any other part of your body, you have learned how to Kegel. If you’re still unsure whether you're doing them correctly, talk with your primary care doctor or urologist.
