Coregasm Workout: Can You Have an Orgasm While Working Out?

Coregasm Workout: Can You Have an Orgasm While Working Out?

It’s no secret that exercise and being physically fit can have benefits on a person’s sex life. However, did you know that there is a thing such as a coregasm workout?

According to women who have experienced it, it’s having an orgasm while you’re in the middle of your workout. Why exactly does this happen, and is it possible for someone to learn how to do it? Read on to learn more.

What is a Coregasm Workout?

According to those who have experienced it, a “coregasm” is an orgasm that happens during exercise. The reason why it’s called a “coregasm” is because it usually happens during abdominal or core exercises. This phenomenon has been talked about online for years, but very few studies have been done about it. Recently, it’s regaining traction on social media.

Those who have experienced it say that it’s pretty similar to orgasm during sex. However, it can be a bit awkward when it happens as it’s usually unexpected. Some have added that since it happens only with certain exercises, they try to avoid doing those exercises when they’re at the gym.

Based on the results of a 2012 study1 from Indiana University, the researchers have confirmed that exercise can indeed induce an orgasm in women. According to Debby Herbenick, one of the researchers, “The most common exercises associated with exercise-induced orgasm were abdominal exercises, climbing poles or ropes, biking/spinning, and weight lifting.”

She continues, “These data are interesting because they suggest that orgasm is not necessarily a sexual event, and they may also teach us more about the bodily processes underlying women’s experiences of orgasm.”

What Causes It?

While the researchers did confirm that women have claimed to have experienced a coregasm workout, they still aren’t clear as to what exactly causes it. However, we do have some idea of what could be happening.

Whenever someone does abdominal exercises, they are also making use of their pelvic floor muscles3. Incidentally, these muscles are also the muscles that contract when a woman has an orgasm. So it’s possible that engaging these muscles when doing exercises such as crunches or squats, might have something to do with why a coregasm occurs.

However, the study also mentioned that this doesn’t happen to all women. So it’s possible that there’s another factor that has yet to be understood, which is the reason why some women can have a coregasm workout, and others do not.

Additionally, exercises that involve the pelvic floor muscles have been known to improve sexual arousal, lubrication, and can contribute to more intense orgasms. So even if you can’t experience a “coregasm” there is still some benefit to working out your pelvic floor muscles4.

How Do You Have Better Orgasms?

Not everyone can experience the coregasm workout. However, there are some ways for women to have better orgasms. Here are some ways to go about it5:

  • Do Kegel exercises, or exercises wherein you hold and relax your pelvic floor muscles for at least 3 seconds. The feeling should be similar to holding your urine in. You can do this in sets of 10 exercises, twice a day.
  • Abdominal exercises such as crunches or squats can also help strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
  • Lie down on your back with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle. Slowly raise your hips, making sure to engage your pelvic floor muscles. This is known as the bridge.

Paired with a healthy diet, doing these exercises can help improve your orgasms, and also make you physically fit. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to talk to your OB-GYN about it. They can give you advice and answer any questions you might have about sexual wellness.
