What happens when you put sex and exercise together? You get a remarkable opportunity to enhance the pleasure of your sex life and make strides in your overall health. With these sex exercises, you can gain strength and confidence to benefit from different situations in the most ideal way possible.
Now, let’s dive into it!
What is sexercise?
As the name itself expresses, sexercise is a physical activity in a combination of sex and exercise. However, the term itself can be defined as any practice that is aimed towards the goal of improving the sexual experience. This includes, of course, the act of sex (as they say, practice makes perfect!), but also comprises a number of other exercises that people incorporate into their regimen.
These can be exercises such as yoga positions, pelvic floor exercises, strength and flexibility, and cardio.
Above all, every action that is undertaken expects that it will help improve their sexual encounters. Thankfully, it’s not only your sexual side that benefits from the advantages brought on by each of these movements.
Health benefits of sexercise
Looking from a general standpoint, sex has been shown to precipitate an array of positive outcomes. Particularly, with respect to mental, emotional, and physical health.
Some of the benefits it has are:
- Boost immunity
- Strengthen the pelvic floor
- Manage stress
- Improve emotional health & relationships
- Raise self-esteem
- Give you a few extra minutes of physical activity per day.
Most often than not, the newfound self-esteem roots from confidence.
This confidence may have to do with how you feel in your body, or how you feel about your performance. Whatever the case may be, it all comes down to what you’re doing before the main event.
Whether you realize it or not, during sex you incorporate three categories of exercise: cardio exercises, pelvic floor exercises, and strength exercises. Each has their role to play, but when they work as one they can create an extraordinary experience. Working on each category independently outside of the bedroom can help provide comfort in certain positions, while also improving the execution.
