Make Your Sex Life Hotter - Step One: Kegels, the Foundation of Sensational Sex

Do not mutter, "I've read this before" as you skip lightly over the exercises below while promising yourself, "Someday." Kegels are compulsory, not optional. They help you reach orgasm more easily and feel it more intensely while giving you more erotic control over your man. And they require surprisingly little effort.

Kegels tone and strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles ‑- the three sets of muscles running from the back to the front of your pubic bone and encircling the openings of the vagina and rectum. They're named after Arnold Kegel, the Los Angeles doctor who promoted their development in the 1940s as a cure for urinary incontinence and post-childbirth "flaccid vagina" syndrome. Few people realize he adapted them from sexual exercises practiced in India for thousands of years.

A woman with strong PCs can grasp her partner's penis and play with it by contracting and releasing her muscles, taking lovemaking beyond everyday sex and into the territory of the Kama Sutra. Without Kegels the PCs are flabby. Period.

You can practice Kegels while driving, standing in line or lying on the sofa watching television. Varying your position from sitting, to standing, to lying down over the course of a week optimizes the exercises.

The Kegel Routine
1. Locate your PC muscles by stopping and starting the flow of urine.
2. Perform the short Kegel squeeze. Contract the PCs 20 times at approximately one squeeze per second, exhaling gently as you tighten. Don't bear down when you release; simply let go. Do two sets every day. Gradually build up to two sets of 75 a day. Then add:
3. The long Kegel squeeze. Hold the muscle contraction for a count of three. Relax between contractions. Work up to holding for 10 seconds and relaxing for 10 seconds. Again, start with two sets of 20 each and gradually build up to 75. If you want a virtuoso vagina, add:
4. The Kegel push-out. After releasing the contraction, gently push down and out with your PC muscles (no bearing down!). Create Kegel sequences that combine long and short repetitions with push-outs ‑- for example, 10 short squeezes, 10 long squeezes, and five push-outs (any sequence will do). After two months of regular sets, you'll have well-developed PC muscles and be able to maintain them by doing 150 squeezes three or four times a week.

Extra Credit: Erotic Weight Lifting
Weights designed to exercise the PC muscles are available in sex-toy shops and catalogs. The most common varieties are smooth eggs in varying sizes made of polished wood or stone, and tiny barbells. Using your PCs, you pull them into the vagina and push them back out. Follow the directions accompanying the weights.
