I had a problem with tensing up during sex (a side effect of another gynecological problem) and my gyn sent me to a physical therapist who specialized in pelvic/gynecological issues.

She had me do kegels during sex as a way to make sure you are releasing any muscle tension. Since we don't think about those muscles much, sometimes you are not even aware you are tensing them. Doing kegels can help you become more aware of how to relax them. So for me, it really helped my sex life.

I much prefer to do kegels during sex because it feels more productive to squeeze around something. When I do them any other time, they feel weird and it's harder to tell how well I am doing them.
Wow thanks for the info. I think I have the same issue but I have yet to talk to the doctor about what it could be. Either way I have been thinking about starting doing kegels.

I do them during yoga. It's called mula bandha.

ETA: Whoopsadaisy, I see Webbie already covered this.

I have a question, unrelated to sex. Is it true that kegel exercises are supposed to strengthen your core and make your stomach flat in the long run? I had a pilates instructor tell me this.

Well, I don't think just doing kegel squeezes is enough to flatten the belly, but exercises that strengthen the core will also strengthen the kegel muscles (the pelvic floor). We all need a strong pelvic floor, not only for sex, but so that our insides don't fall out the bottom of our bodies as we age (pelvic prolapse). Better sex is just a side benefit.

I've also read that you should do them while you are waiting at stoplights...

Supposedly I have very strong kegels. "You're very strong" is what I've been told...didn't understand until I knew what a kegel was. I've been exercising them inadvertently since I was 7 or 8. *shrug* I read that having strong kegels gives you better orgasms.
(My orgasms are about a minute long...on good days I have more than one, a couple of seconds apart)

Just don't overdo them to start with, or you'll be sore the next day! (or so I hear)

I'm not dating or having sex, but I still do them every night. I've never been sore. Hopefully, when Mr Right or Mr Right Now comes along, we will have a very enjoyable night. I've always heard, if you don't use it, you will lose it.

Slight guano: But a truck drove past me on the road earlier and it said "Kegel's Produce."

Shocked me for a sec, as I forgot there was a Dr. Kegel.

Then I thought, "Wonder if they get a lot of snickers at that..."

I've been asking SO about these forever. I keep telling him they're a gift for US, not just me. I think I'll have to suck it up and get them myself.

You had to reach back a ways for this one Luvmylocs!

I'm trying to remember to do them more now, during braxton hicks especially because it's take the focus off BH and catches me off guard but I get several sets in a day.
