Trying to stay motivated to workout can at the best of times be challenging – unless you’re a fitness junkie – but being stuck in lockdown has made it tougher than ever.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way as we might have found an incentive to get you moving.
A fitness guru from New York claims that there are ab exercises you can do that will induce orgasms, reported Daily Star.
Yes, you heard us… They’re known as “coregasms.”
Bec Donlan, 32, shared a screenshot of an article from Medium – an online blog sharing site – where the writer admitted she only “works out her abs for the orgasms.”
The journalist also claims that: “Coregasms are totally a thing. Sometimes, they’re better than sex with a man.”
After posting the picture, Bec was inundated with messages from women who admitted they too often experience orgasm whilst working their core muscles.
Bec also discovered that some of her own workouts challenges, for example, one that encourages people to do 50-100 reps with an ab roller every day, has even brought intimate pleasure to fans.
One fan admitted: “I had an ab roller orgasm during your 100 challenge and to be honest it was one of the best things ever.”
And another said she’s had to stop going to group classes because she gets too worked up, instead of being forced to workout at home.
She said: “This is literally why I don’t like classes that use ab rollers or certain other core movements.”
Adding: “It’s awkward as f*** in public.”
A third person said: “Omg! Happy this is a real thing and I’m not just some weirdo getting turned on by ab rolling.”
And a fourth agreed: “Nice to know that I’m not alone.”
A professor at Indiana University School of Public Health, Debby Herbenick, told Vice that it’s more common than people think to experience a “coregasm” whilst working out.
The author, who wrote The Coregasm Workout: The Revolutionary Method for Better Sex Through Exercise, says around 10 per cent of people have found ab workouts sexually pleasurable.
But a few crunches here and there wont get you worked up.
The expert says: “We do know that they’re most often linked to exercises that place significant demand on the core abdominal muscles.
“For example, we haven’t yet encountered anyone who has them after two or three crunches; it’s much more common after dozens of crunches or after a series of core-demanding exercises.”
