Kegel exercises, or sometimes called pelvic floor muscle exercises, are originally
thought only to be done by women. However, it is a known fact that it can actually
benefit both sexes. In this article, I will go over the reasons why men should start doing
Kegel exercises today.
Can Help Fight ED and PE
Men are highly susceptible to erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation- two
causes of depressed men since these conditions hinder them from lasting longer in bed.
In most cases, men who suffer from these can only last anywhere between 2-5 minutes,
which is significantly short for women, on average.
Some men resort to drinking male enhancement supplements to cope, but that would
mean that they have to spend money on that. The good thing about Kegel exercises is
that they do not require any special equipment whatsoever. All you really need to do is
locate and strengthen one particular muscle: The Pubococcygeus Muscle or the PC
muscle for short.
There are numerous studies that suggest that Kegel exercises can really help men. For
instance, the study that was done by physiotherapists from James Cook University has
revealed that by doing pelvic floor muscle exercises, that they can have a profound
impact on the treatment of sexual dysfunctions that plague men all over the world.
Studies from all over the world have revealed that men who do Kegel exercises have
treated their erectile dysfunction by as much as 47%. Studies have also revealed that
83% of the men in such studies have reported having cured their premature ejaculation
just by doing a couple of pelvic floor muscle exercises a day.
According to Chris Myers who is a physiotherapy lecturer, people who suffer from
premature ejaculation, for example, are known to have weak pelvic floor muscles. So, it
just makes sense that strengthening their PC muscles can instantly help them fix the
The good thing about Kegel exercises is that it is a non-invasive treatment, meaning
that you are not going to be sticking needles into your body or worse, requiring surgery.
You also do not need to spend money since you will not need any special equipment
nor medicine to do the exercise.
Myers did emphasize that if you are suffering from ED, PE, or both, that you have to
consult with your doctor as these conditions are likely precursors to other, more severe
For example, men who are suffering from erectile dysfunction are more likely to develop
cardiovascular diseases than those who don’t. I mean, it just makes sense considering
that heart diseases contribute to the less effective dissemination and pumping of the
blood towards the different parts of the body.
How to Perform It?
Performing Kegel exercise is easy. You just have to locate your PC muscles by putting
a finger in the area between your balls and your anus and then start urinating. Stop the
process midstream and the muscle that moves where you put your fingers at are the
muscles that you want to strengthen.
To help make your PC muscles stronger, all you have to do is concentrate your focus
on that particular muscle and flex it. You ‘flex’ it by squeezing and holding for a couple
of seconds the muscle in question. Do this for 3 sets and 10 repetitions each, every
