Kegel exercises are easy-to-perform clench-and-release exercises which are intended for the strengthening of pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor exercise is another name used for this kind of exercises.
Pelvic floor muscles are located in pelvis which is actually an area between the hips. This area is responsible for the proper holding of sexual organs. If these muscles are weak, a range of unpleasant health issues may develop.
It was long considered that Kegel exercises are only helpful for women who have recently given birth. But there is growing evidence that Kegels are also highly beneficial for men; that is, for both overall health and sexual life. Let’s find out how this happens.
Influence on Penis Size
The majority of men who hear about Kegel exercises first of all guess whether these exercises are able to increase penis size. In fact, the truth is somewhere in the middle.
Kegels encourage more blood to fill the penile tissues. This amount of blood is much larger than usually. That’s why it’s possible to enlarge the manhood in the erect state. So, you will really have a bigger penis during erection.
But you shouldn’t expect permanent penis enlargement in both length and circumference when practicing Kegels. They don’t work as a flaccid penis enlargement technique. The exercises’ effects vanish as soon as the erection disappears.
However, there are also many other benefits which Kegels bring men.
Improvement of Erection Hardness
Enhancement of erection firmness is one of f the most amazing results of Kegel exercises. It’s a right way to stronger and fuller erections.
Kegels facilitate and accelerate the process of pumping blood into the penis. This is especially helpful for men whose erection weakens when putting a condom on the penis. These exercises not only improve the erection quality, but also make the erections last longer.
Kegels are even considered an auxiliary method for curing erectile dysfunction. And there is a scientific proof of this fact.
Thus, the clinical trial conducted in 2005 and given to the world by BJU International found out that Kegel exercises can help relieve ED symptoms. The study involved 55 male participants with the impaired erectile function. These participants had to combine lifestyle changes with Kegel exercises. The exercises had to be done on an everyday basis. The study period lasted for half a year. At the end of this period, 75% of the participants overcame their problem. So, it’s obvious that Kegels have a high potential to cure ED.
Muscle Relaxation during Sexual Intercourse
It’s possible to do reverse Kegels in order to relax pelvic floor muscles. This is very important during sexual intercourse. The matter is that in such a way you can prolong sexual intercourse and make your sensations much better. So, Kegels are really able to add a new zest to your sex life.
Regulation of Ejaculation
The men who practice Kegels know about their excellent ability to help regulate ejaculation; that is, cope with early ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is actually one of the intimate issues which frustrates men (and their partners) most of all. But Kegels offer a worthy solution.
These exercises train the pelvic floor muscles which play a key role in delaying ejaculation. When during sexual intercourse you feel that you will ejaculate soon, it’s necessary to just squeeze the pelvic floor muscles in order not to allow ejaculation. Sometimes, it’s the only way to make sexual intercourse last longer.
In addition, the development of pelvic floor muscles may contribute to the increase in ejaculation volume. This is beneficial for the men’s self-esteem.
Enhancement of Orgasm Brightness
It’s possible to achieve impressively bright orgasms if the men’s pelvic floor muscles are well-trained. This happens due to the enhancement of blood circulation in the penis area. As a result, sensitivity increases. And the man gets much more sexual pleasure.
Moreover, if you perform Kegels on a regular basis, you can even experience even multiple orgasms during sexual intercourse.
Management of Urinary Incontinence
Though the promising potential of Kegel exercises to manage urinary incontinence is not directly related to sex, it still has an influence on the men’s sexual health and overall well-being.
By training the pelvic floor muscles, you not only strengthen your erectile function, but also improve or restore your ability to properly hold urine.
The problem of urinary incontinence becomes especially serious when the men are getting older. If the man leaks when sneezing, laughing or straining himself, he feels embarrassed and even depressed. In this case, there is no chance of high sexual confidence and satisfaction.
Kegel exercises are a great measure that will help the men of any age to effectively prevent or fight the issue of urinary incontinence without any medications and/or surgical methods.
Men’s Overall Health and Kegels
Kegels restore not only sexual health in men. They also rebuild the men’s overall health by preventing prostate disorders. Thanks to regular Kegel exercises, your prostate will be strong and healthy. They also help maintain overall health of the other male sexual organs.
The Bottom Line
Kegel exercises are a highly effective method to strengthen the muscles available in the male pelvic area.
These exercises can’t permanently elongate and thicken the penis. But they yet can increase the manhood size in the erect state and hence give a boost to male bedroom performance. Also, these exercises enable the men to manage bladder, enhance the quality of erections, brighten orgasms, and cope with prostate diseases.
It’s important not to stop performing Kegels in order to preserve progress and enjoy sex life.
