Questions and answers
-I’m young and I haven’t given birth, why should I exercise?
Simply beqause you’ll have more fun in bed. As mentioned above,
exercised vaginal muscles will give you(and your partner) more
pleasure during intercourse. His penis will feel bigger and your
orgasms will be stronger. It will make childbirth easier and it
prevents incontinence. You’ll be a better sexual partner (men
*love* a strong vagina). It might even help you find/keep your
|-I have given birth, but why should I exercise?|
Beqause you(and your partner) will enjoy sex that much more.
After childbirth, you will regain your tightness much faster (if you
don’t exercise, some say it takes eight years to regain tightness).
If you exercise, your vagina will not only get tighter but also stronger.
As mentioned, this will make the penis of your partner feel bigger,
you’ll get stronger orgasms and you prevent incontinence.
Unfortunately, when getting married, many women stop exercising. If
they break up, they begin to exercise again (as they wanna get a new
partner, they try not only to look good and get into shape on the
‘outside’ but also on the ‘inside’(by having a tight vagina)). If they had
kept exercising during their marriage, they would have had a much
richer sex life and a tighter vagina (as well as preventing some female

-How is a Kegel exercise done?
It’s very simple.
The easiest way to exercise is simply to contract the vagina, then relax.
Repeat 20-400(depending on your strength) times/day.
As well as being simple to do, the exercises only take some minutes each day.
And unlike other exercises(like jogging, swimming, strength training, etc.),
you don’t even have to take a shower afterwards, and the results are very
Aleternative (more efficient and advanced) ways to exercise are described
further down this page.
When exercising you should not use your stomach, leg, back or buttock muscles.
Breathe slowly and deeply.
Put your hand on your stomach when you squeeze your pelvic muscle.
If you feel your abdominal muscles move, then you are also using these
muscles. Your leg and buttocks muscles should not move.
There’s also gadgets like kegelmaster to help women locate and exercise
the right muscles.
-I don’t know how to contract my vagina!
It’s the same muscle you flex when you try not to pee(like when you
feel you really need to visit a toliet but there’s is no one around).
Next time you’re urinating, try to stop in mid flow(without using your
legs). The muscle you use to start and stop is the pubococcygeus muscle.
(This is only a way to find the muscle – Kegel exercises should normally
not be done when urinating).
-How do I know if I’m exercising the right muscles?
Put a finger (or two) into the vagina and squeeze. You should feel your vagina tighten.
Or, ask your gynaecologist. She will help you.
Another way is to tighten your vaginal muscles to grip your partner’s penis during
intercourse – if your vagina isn’t too weak, your partner should be able to feel an
increase in pressure.
-I’m getting headache when exercising. What’s wrong?
If you get headaches when exercising, then you are also tensing your chest
muscles and probably holding your breath. If you find the exercises tiring or
if you get back pain or stomach pain after you exercise, then you are probably
trying too hard and using stomach muscles.
-I want to learn how to use the vaginal muscles deeper inside.
These muscles are harder to find. It may be easier if you use a dildo when
exercising, though. More on resistance kegels further down this page.
-I find the exercises boring! Is there a way to make them more fun?
Yes. If you want, you can masturbate at the same time. Masturbating is not
filthy but natural. All women should masturbate, whether they have a partner
or not. Masturbating helps you to learn more about your body/genitals, what
you like/enjoy regarding sex and makes you more open minded towards sex.
Actually, many women get a better sex life if they masturbate. It will also help
you let out/get rid of stress/tension. According to several surveys, up to 90%
of women(married as well as unmarried) masturbates, many of them several
times a week.
Or buy Ben Wa balls and contract around them! Ben Wa balls are inserted
into the vagina and are intended to give the woman pleasure when she walks.
As you’ve something to squeeze around, your Kegel exercises will feel natural.
More on this further down.
-Is it true that some women let doctors sew their vagina in order to
get tighter? Is that really better than exercising?
Sadly, although it’s not common, it seems like some(often rich) women
do this to get a tighter vagina.
Some doctors also make ‘love-stitches’, during the repair of epiosiotomy
(after childbirth) to make the vagina tight.
However, as these women don’t get the benefits mentioned above (like
stronger vaginal muscles, stronger orgasms, preventing incontinence, etc.),
Kegel exercising is much better. Thus, ‘love-stitches’ is not a substitute for
-Can men do Kegel-exercises?
Yes. But it won’t make the penis harder(not much anyway) or anything
like that(so, a weak muscle doesn’t mean a soft penis). What it can do,
though, is to help men delay/control orgasm.
